Traditional Latin Mass All Souls Day at St. John Berchman Cathedral in Shreveport

09 Nov

A Traditional Latin Mass at St. John Berchman Cathedral in Shreveport, La.

Pope Benedict XVI has made it clear the Traditional Latin Mass is to be used and encouraged in our Dioceses.  No longer do the priests need permission from the Bishops to celebrate Mass the way it had been for the previous 1300 -1500 years. Until Vatican II and those who used the simple changes in the 1968-69 Novus Ordo Mass to twist sweeping changes that we now see.

Because of the strong religious and family traditions in the South we are seeing a revival of the TLM as this example from the All Souls Day Mass at the Cathedral in Shreveport, La.  If you have not been to a TLM Mass it is worth the effort to encourage your Parish or Diocese to start holding this form of the Mass. The Reverence, Pioty and Sacredness of the TLM is something to experience for you and your family.  Such solum worship and prayer to our Eternal Father is a natural fit for the many traditions Southerners pass from one generation to the next, as we progress thorough this life.

“Because of the historical French and Spanish influences, there is a prevalent culture surrounding the dead of Louisiana. It is not uncommon for families to prepare for the feast of All Soul’s by cleaning and painting the family plot and graves, which are uniquely above-ground, encased in brick or cement because the water-table precludes ground burial. As a result, a necropolis is formed which leaves the impression that the dead are still among us, not hidden. Perhaps this is why over 500 people attended the evening Mass during a torrential rain and thunderstorm, to connect with their dead.”

    Isn’t it amazing that the South and our traditional Catholic beliefs are under constant assault. Obviously, I believe it is because they are actually attacking our Lord Jesus. Because of the South’s deep faith and the Catholic Church’s standing, they are obvious targets.
