The Adoration/Easter Reception of Holy Communion

The Adoration/Easter Reception of Holy Communion schedule is being updated on Wednesdays. 

Signup for Adoration Here

We will offer Holy Communion to people at the beginning of each hour that we have adoration. On the hour, one of us will come; we will cover the monstrance for a minute and perform the short rite for giving Communion outside of Mass. Remember that it is just as important to prepare oneself and make a thanksgiving for receive Our Lord in the Host even though there is not much ceremony. Please remember that the Archbishop has said that each person may receive once only. We will be giving Holy Communion during adoration both on Sundays and throughout this
week. This will likely continue for several weeks so that everyone will have a chance to receive.

Mass and Prayer Resources While At Home

Praying the Traditional Latin Mass. For a powerful way to pray the Traditional Latin Mass at home, it may be valuable to use this resource as presented by Dr. Peter Kwasniewski. In it he combines the Propers of the Mass, some of the Ordinary, and some beautiful Spiritual Communion prayers/reflections by St. Gertrude the Great.

Find Propers of each day’s Holy Mass at extraordinaryform.org.

The prayers of every hour of the Divine Office can be found at The Divinum Officium Project.

For a meditation upon the Church’s texts for Holy Mass and Divine Office, here is a link to the online version of the much referenced-by-Fr. Stewart The Liturgical Year by the Very Rev. Dom Prosper Gueranger.

St. Alphonsus Ligouri’s Stations of the Cross (in booklet form).

St. John Henry Cardinal Newman’s Stations of the Cross (in easy-to-print form).

Disciplines of Lent

Ash Wednesday, a day of:

  • Complete abstinence from meat for those 14 +
  • Fasting by all those 18-59. (Fasting is one full meal with two other smaller meals that together do not equal one meal.)

One is no longer required to observe the ‘1962 Disciplines of Lent’, but if you are looking to strengthen your Lenten devotion, consider trying these:

  1. Every day of Lent (excluding Sundays and First Class Feasts of St. Joseph (Mar. 19) and the Annunciation (Mar. 25) is a day of fast. Liquids, including milk and juice, are allowed between meals.
  2. Partial abstinence every day except those mentioned above. This means meat may be taken only once per day at the main meal (except on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays, and Holy Saturday).
  3. Beer and wine are allowed, but no hard alcohol.

Additional Lenten Practices

Make a very humble and sorrowful confession. Take the time to go over a very good examination of conscience and write down your sins so as to not forget them. Often we get nervous in the confessional and can forget them. Stating how many times and when you committed the sins helps the confessor to give you the right penance and to help you root out these vices.

Get to Holy Mass during the week. It takes a lot of discipline to get to Holy Mass, but the fruits are well worth it. There is no greater prayer than the prayer of Jesus to the Father through the Holy Spirit in the Holy Latin Mass in which we participate.

Pray the Holy Rosary. Meditate prayerfully on the Passion of Jesus (Sorrowful Mysteries) everyday during Lent. It would be even more effective if the whole family prays it together. Set a time to pray when people are home and not too tired to give it a good effort.

Read the Bible. Read and meditate on all that led up to the passion and crucifixion of Jesus.

Pray the Stations of the Cross slowly. Take yourself back in time to the Holy Land, retracing the steps of Jesus on His way to Calvary. This is usually done on Friday, but it would also be good to do everyday of Lent.

Read a traditional Catholic book. The ‘Imitation of Christ’, ‘The Secret of the Rosary’, and ‘The Life of Christ’ are all good examples.

Make time for heart-felt prayer. Talk heart to heart with the Father, Jesus and the Holy Ghost. This is best done in front of the Blessed Sacrament. If for some reason you cannot go to a church, pray at home facing the closest Tabernacle.

Disconnect from social media and news and keep use of your phone and computer to a minimum. Encourage your children in this.

Stop watching the news. Instead, use this time to pray for the world governments. What good does it do us to be depressed over all the evil things going on in the world that we have no control over? This time can be much better used to love and communicate with our families and make our home a happier world where they can see the difference. Use time to eat and play together as a family. Take time to communicate with each other and love each other more.

Eat meals together as a family. Sacrifice time to make delicious healthy home-made meals that everyone can enjoy together.

Forgive and pray for those who have hurt you. Forgive everything from the past, once and forever. Holding on to pain from our childhood, our parish, our spouses, etc… does more harm to our spiritual life than you can imagine. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”, “Love your enemy”, “Do good to those who hurt you.” When offended, follow the precepts of Matthew 18:15-17 and absolutely reject gossip, slander, or detraction.

Stop taking the salvation of the world on your shoulders. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. We can only help those with whom we have influence. And let us not forget, salvation starts with our own souls and family. Every time you get depressed about the Pope, bishops, priests, religious and laity, get down on your knees and pray about it. Then, give it over to God, Mary and the Saints to take care of it. We only do what ever we can to peacefully reform and renew the Church. Then, we let God do the rest. We are not God. Chill out and have more joy. God is still in charge of the Church and the world. We are only His humble servants.

Invite people this Lent to attend a Traditional Latin Mass, traditional retreat or traditional group.

Follow the command of 1 Peter 3:15-16. “Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; keeping a clear conscience, so that those who slander you may be put to shame by your good behavior in Christ.” 

Consecration to St. Joseph begins March 30

Monday, March 30 is 33 days until the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. What better time is there in which to begin a 33-Day Consecration to St. Joseph!? Read on for more information:

WHAT: Consecration to St. Joseph

HOW LONG: 33 Days, from Monday, March 30 to Friday, May 1 (Feast of St. Joseph the Worker)

IS THIS LEGIT AND ORTHODOX? Yes; it has endorsements from Bishop Athanasius Schneider and Cardinal Burke, amongst others.

HOW TO PURCHASE: For the digital version, (priced at $6.95) go to: https://www.shopmercy.org/consecration-to-st-joseph-the-wonders-of-our-spiritual-father-ebook.html

WHAT IS REQUIRED GROUP-WISE: Probably nothing. If All Saints is open by then, we could try to come together on Friday evening, May 1st, and say the Dedication prayer together after the 7:00 PM Mass, but this is not required even if the church is open. Simply to know that we are working on this at the same time is powerful.

If you do decide to do this, please leave a comment on Flocknotes. Perhaps some people will want to get together over Zoom to discuss as we go along…
