Suggestions for those attending the Latin Mass for the first time

“If you are new to the Latin Mass, my recommendation to you is not to worry about how to participate. Put down the booklet all together. Watch and listen in the silence and let your prayer arise. Have no expectations. Let yourself be surprised. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide. Treat this time like a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament. Realize that during this Holy Hour, something magnificent is happening: Jesus Christ, the High Priest, is offering the Holy Sacrifice.”

I want to suggest you read the whole post here.

  1. Father,

    I’m certain that a complete return to liturgical tradition is unlikely in the coming decades; however, we do see positive steps in that direction across the Catholic world.

    I have been particularly inspired by entire diocese returning the Tabernacle to the center of all parishes, and even bishops mandating ad orientem in parishes. What do you think is the likelihood that Little Rhoady could implement ad orientem and central tabernacles in the parishes?

    Thanks and God bless.

    • It’s all in God’s hands. Things can happen quickly if the Holy Spirit moves the Church. I’m convinced that with the Our Lady’s Triumph there will be a restoration of Sacred Liturgy. Until then, we must do what we can, but above all pray and sacrifice.
