WE BELIEVE IN REVERENT SOLEMN LITURGY BECAUSE . . .
. . . As Catholics, we know our worship ought to reflect the following vision:
“One day, when a priest was celebrating Mass, I saw, at the moment of Consecration, how all the powers of heaven were set in motion. I heard, at the same time, a heavenly music, most harmonious, most sweet. Numberless Angels came down, the chant of whom no human understanding could conceive, nor the tongue of man describe. They surrounded and looked upon the priest, bowing towards him in reverential awe. The devils commenced to tremble, and took to flight in greatest confusion and terror.” - St. Bridget of Sweden (thanks to Fr. Z)
DON'T FORGET YOUR PIOUS RESOLUTION . . . . .
To keep your tax-deductible Knoxville Latin Mass Community support between your parish and diocesan contributions and your tax payment. To provide for Community expenses in support of Latin liturgy (which typically average as much as a few hundred dollars weekly)--for music, surplices and cassocks for altar servers, and liturgical supplies and equipment, and to maintain a reserve fund for special purchases ranging from missals to candlesticks and vestments--please use the special addressed Knoxville Latin Mass Community envelopes that can be handed in, mailed in (address here), or left on the missalette tables after Mass (but should be kept separate from and in addition to the regular parish and diocesan offertory envelopes). For additional details, see the " Make a Contribution" page at our community web site: www.KnoxLatinMass.net
