Laudetur Jesus Christus! Here are some updates for this weekend:
1st Sunday Latin Mass in Salisbury
This Sunday March 1st is also first Sunday, and as such Sacred Heart Parish in Salisbury will be having their monthly Sunday afternoon Traditional Latin Mass. Please note: Mass will be at 5pm (not 4pm) to accommodate, Fr. Brendan Buckler’s travel schedule (he is pastor at St. Elizabeth in Boone). There will be no social after this Mass. For questions contact Mark Hartley with the Salisbury Latin Mass Community: info(at)salisburylmc.org
Passion of Christ and the Traditional Latin Mass
With Lent underway, we are again pleased to make available our pamphlet, “The Passion of Christ Re-presented in the Traditional Latin Mass”, which details each part of the Traditional Mass, and how it symbolized a certain part of Christ’s Passion. It’s based on the work of Fr. Leonard Goffine (d. 1719) and more recently Fr. James Jackson’s (FSSP) book Nothing Superfluous. This pamphlet may help some – especially newcomers – united themselves more with Christ’s Passion during Mass. The pamphlet will be available at our Latin Mass info table before or after this Sunday’s 12:30pm Latin Mass at St. Ann.

His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider (who visited us at St. Ann in 2017), has been busy this week with statements on some recent Church controversies. They are both great reads and help to provide much clarity in this time of confusion:

- On the question of the true pope in the light of the opinion of the automatic loss of the papal office for heresy and the speculations about the resignation of Benedict XVI:
Blogger Taylor Marshall as also just interviewed His Excellency today on many of these topics:
