The Chaplain’s Corner | The Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost – August 11, 2013 – Traditional Latin Mass


II Corinthians 3:4 Fratres: Fiduciam talem habemus per Christum ad Deum; Brethren: Such confidence we have through Christ towards God.
Luke 10:27 Diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et ex tota anima tua, et ex omnibus viribus tuis, et ex omni mente tua; et proximum tuum tuum sicut teipsum; Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.

Dear Latin Mass Faithful and friends,

One of the finest Catholic writers of the twentieth century was the Frenchman Francois Mauriac (1885-1970). During his long life he wrote a significant number of profound books, which reflect his deep faith in a subtle and creative manner. His greatest works were novels, where his genius is best displayed in showing the truths of Catholicism in day to day life. Most of his books revealed in some way the power of love. After his death in 1970, Time magazine reported that he “provided his own eulogy in a recording he made to be released after his death: ‘I believe,’ he said, ‘as I did as a child, that life has meaning, direction, and value; that no suffering is lost; that every tear and each drop of blood counts; and that the secret of the world is to be found in St. John’s “Deus caritas est”–“God is Love.” ‘”

The Chaplain’s Corner | The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost – August 4th, 2013 – Traditional Latin Mass


1 Corinthians 15: 3a Tradidi enim vobis in primis, quod et accepi; For I delivered unto you first of all, which I also received.

Mark 7:30-35 Et apprehendens eum de turba seorsum, misit digitos suos in auriculas ejus: et expsuens tetigit linguam ejus; et suspiciens in coelum, ingemuit, et ait illi: Ephpheta, quod est adaperire. Et statim apertae sunt aures ejus, et solutum est vinculum linguae ejus, et loquebatur recte. And taking him from the multitude apart, He put His fingers into his ears, and spitting, he touched his tongue; and looking up to heaven, He groaned and said to him: Ephpheta, that is, Be thou opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke right.

Dear Latin Mass Faithful and friends,

It seems to those in the household of faith that more and more, even in America, everyone has a right to speak up and express his views except men and women of faith. A false interpretation of “separation of Church and State” or the slogan, actually not found in any official documents of our country, “a wall of separation between Church and State” is thrown in our faces as the end of the discussion. Never before in our American history has our religious freedom to express and practice our faith been so much in jeopardy. What we believe is clearly seen for what it is: a message strongly in opposition to a secularized society. Many in our society don’t even want to hear the traditional gospel message. They want it not only silenced, but repressed by force of civil law. More and more pressure is being put on us to accept, pay for in taxes and promote what is contrary to the solemn doctrine of our Divine Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Modern man is tempted to be like the deaf mute in the Gospel, though morally and spiritually deaf and mute; when kneeling before the false gods of the world are more and more unable to listen, hear, and speak in a Godly way. Clearly, we need for Jesus to perform a miracle. And He performs such miracles even in our time. If you grasp even in a small way what I am writing here, you are part of the miracle. If not, pray for such a miracle in your life. It is not too late. There is still time.
