Mass offered in Latin in Westphalia for the Sacred Heart
For hundreds of years, the Roman Catholic Liturgy was, in the words of one historian, “the one changeless ceremony in a world of change.”–Catholic Missourian
With the world now seeming to change more quickly than ever, Mass in Latin in the Extraordinary Form seems all the more timeless and transient.
“Whenever we come to Mass,” stated Father Dylan Schrader, “we are in the presence of a mystery that looms larger than ourselves — something beyond our control because it is first of all an action of God’s and not our own.”
Fr. Dylan Schrader, pastor of St. Brendan parish in Mexico and the bishop’s delegate for Mass in the Extraordinary Form, was preaching a homily during Mass in in Latin on June 28 in historical St. Joseph Church in Westphalia.
