St. Michael's Day


Today is the feast of St. Michael the Archangel, and the dedication of the basilica named after him in Rome. The video above was recorded today via my webcam on my new computer (directly to YouTube). 

Please pray that my special Catholic girl someone will come!

SSPX Mass in Woburn time change

For those who live on the North of Boston, I have some good news: The SSPX Mission in Woburn, Massachusetts, St. Catherine of Siena, has changed their Sunday Mass time to 10:00 am, so you can attend a True Catholic Mass at a convenient time! (SSPX USA website) 

The chapel is located in the office building at 237 Lexington St, Room 7, on Rt. 3:


Please note that the SSPX is NOT in schism, nor they are excommunicated. It is permissible to attend a Mass offered by and receive the Sacraments from an SSPX priest or bishop.

Today is My Birthday


Today, the 16th of September A.D. 2012, the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, and the Feast of Ss. Cornelius and Cyprian, Martyrs, is my birthday. I'm not going to say how old I am, but I'm telling you that I'm getting older every day. 

I write today to inform you that I have not opened any presents nor had any cake yet, but I hope I open a present that is the purpose of this blog--finding a young Traditional Catholic woman to be my wife. 

Please pray that she comes soon!

Pax Christi, 

Chris

U.S. Labor Day, St. Pius X

I hope you are all having a good Labor Day weekend. I'm not in particular because I'm not feeling well and did not go to Mass this morning, but I should be better by tomorrow. 

Speaking of tomorrow (Sept. 3rd), it is the Feast of St. Pius X, which is a simple (III class) feast on the general calendar, but a double of the first class (I class) in churches consecrated to St. Pius X and in churches or chapels of the Society of St. Pius X. 

St. Pius X was the last saintly pope since Pius V, who codified the Tridentine Mass and wrote something called the Tridentine Creed. Pius X, however, condemned Modernism and even wrote the Oath Against Modernism, a pledge to be taken by all clergy, seminarians, and university professors, on September 1, 1910. So since the Oath and his feast day are close to each other, it is tradition in Catholic institutions of higher education that all professors renew the oath every year. (The only place I know of that still does it at the undergrad level is Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia.) 

A month or so ago I posted a video on my Youtube channel reciting the Tridentine Creed and renewing the Oath Against Modernism. I have it below in honor of both Pius V and Pius X:
