Happy Birthday, Summorum Pontificum!

Summorum Pontificum turns 7 today – that is, the motu proprio was released world-wide on this day. SP didn’t go into effect until September 14th of 2007, but Fr. Roberts will be celebrating High Mass for that Sunday at our regular time, so please be sure to join us!

In the meantime, here is a video from Juventutem DC saying “Thank You” to all those faithful clergy and laity who have made this possible. All of us in the St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community would like to extend our thanks to YOU as well.

Thomas Aquinas on the Latin Mass

What’s better than either St. Thomas Aquinas or the Latin Mass? St. Thomas Aquinas speaking on the Latin Mass, of course!

Dr. Taylor Marshall is starting a new video series, discussing twelve mystical actions of the Mass (i.e., parts of the Mass most confusing to the newcomers [especially Protestants!]  as covered by the Dominican saint.

JUNE 29 – FEAST OF SS. PETER & PAUL

Raphael, ‘The Meeting of Leo the Great and Attila’

For today’s feast, an interesting anecdote from the embassy of Pope Saint Leo the Great to Attila the Hun (taken from J.H. Robinson’s Readings in European History:

“And lo, suddenly there were seen the apostles Peter and Paul, clad like bishops, standing by Leo, the one on the right hand, the other on the left. They held swords stretched out over his head, and threatened Attila with death if he did not obey the pope’s command. Wherefore Attila was appeased he who had raged as one mad. He by Leo’s intercession, straightway promised a lasting peace and withdrew beyond the Danube.”

Remembering our prayer from the end of Low Masses, may we, like Saint Leo, have recourse to these two pillars of the Faith, that they may help to defend the “freedom and exaltation of Holy Mother the Church”.

(Please join us for High Mass and Vespers today, 3 P.M., Seton Day Chapel.)

This summer, I’m going to be a hero, Philip Connelly thought as he lay under a large maple tree on his parents’ farm. He thought that there had to be something he could do that would be important, and remembered by people everywhere, and for all time. But, what could it be? Would it happen this summer, and how would anyone know when he lived on a farm far from any large city? Philip is a teen growing up on a farm in Indiana. This summer will see him mature in many ways: physically, mentally and spiritually. When he was a small boy, Philip thought he could see an angel. But, that was some time ago, and during this period of change in his life, he’ll once again meet that angel! Join Philip as his angel shows him scenes from the lives of saints that parallel his life such as Augustine, Benedict, Scholastica, Catherine of Siena and others.
