Fact: Solemn High Mass at St. Ann's was sublime!

Dear Readers.... I hope that you all got experience the Solemn High Mass offered at St. Ann's for the Feast of St. Anne.  It was an outstanding event... with His Excellency, Bishop Jugis assisting for the 2nd consecutive year (Long may He reign!).

Here is an article with wonderful photos from the Catholic News Herald.

Also, the St. Ann Schola Cantorum have a recap of the beautiful music they provided for the Mass at their site.

Lastly, here is a photo of the statue referenced in Fr. Kauth's outstanding homily.

St Anne... grandmother of our Saviour... Pray for us.

Fact: Fifth Anniversary of Summorum Pontificum

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us, too….”
--  Pope Benedict XVI

In honor of the Fifty Anniversary of the promulgation of the Muto Proprio Summorum Pontificum liberating the"old" Mass of the Missal of the Blessed John XXIII of 1962... let's us pray for our Holy Father, Benedict XVI... Long may he reign!

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedicto.

R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]

Fact: Bishop Jugis to assist at upcoming Solemn High Mass at St. Ann's in Charlotte!

Dear Readers... wonderful news!  In reading the Catholic News Herald that was in my mailbox today, I saw two wonderful pieces of news:

1.  The Solemn High Mass for the Feast of St. Anne  on Thursday, July 26 has been confirmed for 7pm

2.  His Excellency, Bishop Jugis, is expected to be in attendance based on his published calendar

How wonderful this news is.  One might have thought (as I must confess I did) that last year was a one time event, but with His Excellency scheduled to come again this year, it shows wonderful support for the Mass in the Extraordinary Form by the Shepherd of the Church of Charlotte.

Pray, my dear Readers, that all this may come to pass as expected and planned.

Lastly, the online version of the Catholic News Herald has this wonderful article/interview with His Eminence, Raymond Cardinal Burke, on "Restoring the traditional Latin Mass" on the fifth anniversary of the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum by our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI (Long may he reign!)
