i made this in honor of today’s Responsorial Psalm!
“Only say the word and my soul shall be healed”. Always extra special when Father Leo is in town to celebrate Mass! #catholic #mass #Eucharist
Midnight Mass! Best way to end AND start the year! Also, met a new priest but didn’t get to present myself and kiss his hand :( happy 2013 y’all! #professionalpriestcreeper #catholic #mass #Eucharist (at St. Charles Borromeo)
THAT MASS!!!! #Catholic #yfl #sfl #professionalpriestcreeper (Taken with Instagram at St Leo The Great Parish)
so much win in this pic!!
so many priest joinin in the Consecration of the bread and wine! so epic!
and the altar server?! he was up there most of the mass because he was turning the pages for the Celebrants and he would pass the mic from one priest to another.
and when time came for the imposition of hands over the offerings, he keeled. very rightfully! Showed so much respect for what was happening in the altar while he continued to do what he needed to do. =]

i know alot of us “trad” Catholics like to stick strictly to the Missal and dont want to hold hands during the Our Father, but in essence, it is beautiful. That a whole congregation comes together not as members standing next to each other but as a family, as the Body of Christ, hand in hand praying to Our Lord. In that moment, we make physical what we should have bee doing spiritually, becoming ONE, coming together, praying as brothers and sisters. I dont consider it an “abuse” i consider it a jump towards the Kingdom of God.
My bro and me at the Catholic Charismatic Center here in Houston, Tx this past Friday!
(Me on the left red. he on the right black)
great way to spend a Friday Night! He and his ministry played for an hour of worship then for the Lord’s Supper!

A little video composed by Holy Cross seminarian Joe Krivos and Notre Dame freshman Luke Wilgenbusch concerning the new translation of the mass
Now that we’re basically almost three months into the new translation, we can all have a nice laugh at all the initial negative responses to such changes like “And with your spirit” and “consubstantial.”
I <3 formal equivalence!
jajajaja this is too accurate! xD
This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead. He that eateth this bread, shall live for ever. John 6:58
( For all Bible believing Christians, “It’s in the Bible”)!
A lot of people hate on the Novus Ordo.
Now, you’re talking to someone who cringes when they see the choir prominently arrayed in front of the altar within an arms length of the priest, when people practically leap over pews to give someone a “hug of peace” (sarcasm intended), and especially when children perform skits or liturgical dancing commences in lieu of a homily.
BUT BUT BUT…
What about a nicely celebrated Mass without any of the frills (some mentioned above) that are falsely seen as ‘okay’ in the Novus Ordo? Now, there was definitely some dissent during Vatican II when this Mass was proposed, but the bottom line is the pope approved this change. It certainly doesn’t take away the recognized beauty of the Tridentine rite, but you don’t automatically become a Protestant if you attend a Mass in English. It can be a beautiful mass as well, because any properly celebrated mass has the beauty of the Holy Eucharist as its focus.
You might prefer attending the Tridentine Mass, but please stop telling other people (like myself) how awful the Novus Ordo is. The abuses of the rite are certainly atrocious, but please frame it in those terms when speaking about it. By generalizing complaints about the entire Novus Ordo, it only creates a wider cultural divide between the two groups who frequent each mass.
I have a lot of friends and acquaintances who prefer the Tridentine Mass, and recently, I’ve come to notice that all of them have a slight tendency to sneer at the people who don’t share their views (in terms of the Mass, anyways) as “a lesser Catholic”. It just happened again to me about two minutes ago, in fact.
I’ve been to Tridentine Mass and loved it. However, I’ve also been to a Byzantine Catholic service, a mass in the Melkite Catholic tradition in the West Bank, and many many other masses with traditions that vary from culture to culture (go to mass in East Africa, and you’ll see what I mean). I love being a part of a church that has that sort of room for diversity. If you don’t like a certain type of Mass, just don’t go to it.
I’m more than open to hearing what anyone has to say on this matter, but do it respectfully. Condescension and behaving like a git stifles dialogue, it doesn’t promote it.
As a Mexican Catholic one thing that i love is seeing the mass celebrated CULTURALLY! i too facepalm when things are done incorrectly and the liturgy is abused but one of the beauties of being Catholic is being able to go ANYWHERE in the world and still taking part of the same Christ! but also being able to travel the world and seeing how every culture celebrates Mass with their own hint of cultural flavor is amazing!
Christ came to be one of us! He came for Gentile and Jew! We see this also in all the apparitions of The Virgin Mary! Each apparition appeared as one of the people. Lourdes and Fatima as a European, Guadalupe as a Mestiza, and La Vang as a traditional Vietnamese.
I dont listen to Mariachi music every day! if anything….probably about 3 times a year! But being in Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe with Mariachi is too surreal!
