Hand Missals...Why We Should Still Have One

Since the allowance of the vernacular in the Mass following Vatican II, the idea of people having their own Roman Missal has fallen into relative obscurity. The erroneous thinking that the Roman Missal was simply there to help one follow the Latin has, sadly, resulted in a temporal and eternal disconnect with the liturgical and spiritual heartbeat of the Church. The liturgical year of the Catholic Church is far more than an artificial collection of feasts and seasons. It is a profound and…

Why Latin in Our Liturgy and in Our Church

Much of what is written below comes directly from The Catechism Explained: An Exhaustive Explanation of the Catholic Religion by Father Francis Spirago.

7 Reasons for the Use of Latin in the Mass

1. The Latin language is venerable on account of its origin and its antiquity; indeed, it dates back to the earliest centuries of the Church and to the very masses offered in the obscurity of the Catacombs.

2. There is an element of mystery about Latin.…

A Christmas reflection

Tonight is it!

The culmination of our weeks of prayer, hope, and longing results in the miracle of this night: the birth of our Emmanuel- our God with us!

From the dawn of creation, God has used signs and symbols to showcase his love to us. Remember the Garden of Eden, the rainbow given to Noah, the bread given to Moses, the tablets containing the Ten Commandments? How about the sun, water, and fire? There are hundreds of symbols throughout the Old and New…
