Tridentine Latin Mass returns to Holy Rosary Parish in Sacramento
edit_button


Holy Rosary will celebrate Mass in Latin at 7 p.m. tonight for the first time in nearly 40 years. This is in accordance with Pope Benedict XVI's recent Motu-Proprio Summorum Pontificum, which brought back the Catholic church's 2,000-year-old Latin Mass.

"What's that saying? 'Lost in translation?'" asked Father Uriel Ojeda of Holy Rosary. "Nowadays everything tries to be inclusive. At least having the Latin keeps us unified in a certain way in that if we can't agree on the translation, we can agree of the source."

Traditionally, Mass was celebrated in the church's official language, Latin. In order to modernize things, the 2nd Vatican Council, who met in the 1960s, decided to suppress the long-established, Latin Mass in favor of the vernacular.

...

Father Jerome Lebel, FSSP, from St. Stephen, The First Martyr, Catholic Church in Sacramento, will give the Mass at Holy Rosary Catholic Church on the corner of Walnut and Court Streets.

WILL ROGER MAHONEY IN LA AND BROWN IN ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA OBEY THE HOLY FATHER AND ROME AND DO MORE THAN TOKENISM LATIN MASSES IN THEIR ARCHDIOCESE & DIOCESE OR LIKE MC CORMAS IN ENGLAND THINK THEY CAN WAIT TILL THE HOLY FATHER DIE'S AND HOPE FOR THE ELECTION OF A LIBERAL-HUMANIST-SECULARIST POPE, SOMEONE TO THEIR LIKING. TO ME MAHONEY & BROWN ARE NORTH AMERICAN EXAMPLES OF SCHISMATICS AND HETERODOX CLERICS. WHEN WILL ROME LAISIZE AND EXCOMMUNICATE THESE AND MANY MORE 60'S STYLE HOLDOVERS FROM THE BAD OLE DAYS. SINCE THE ADVENT OF SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM AND THE RETURN OF THE ANCIENT CLASSIC MASS (TRUDENTINE) I HAVE GOTTEN MY BACKSIDE OUT OF THE PROTESTANT/EVANGELICAL ASSEMBLY I WAS INVOLVED WITH AND AFTER 10 YRS RETURNED TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AS I SAW THE CATHOLIC CHURCH RETURNING TO BEING CATHOLIC. IT IS AFTER ALL THE ONLY CHURCH ESTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF AND POPE BENEDICT THE 16TH IS HIS VICAR ON EARTH---SHALOM

Although they do not openly support the Mass, The Tridentine Mass has come back to their Dioceases. Although a couple of the Tridentine Masses have been cancelled in the LA Archdiocease due to scheduleing and closeings.
