The Tridentine Mass in the Diocese of San Jose

There is great news for Catholics that feel particularly attached to the 1962 Tridentine Liturgy. As a proud Catholic, who loves the Tridentine Liturgy, I am very happy for those Catholics in the Diocese of San Jose. The following is via


Bishop Patrick J. McGrath has decreed the canonical establishment of the Oratory of the Chapel of Our Mother of Perpetual Help on 1298 Homestead Road, Santa Clara, California for the Catholic faithful in the Diocese of San Jose who are attached to the rituals in use in 1962 effective January 1, 2007. The Oratory is entrusted to the pastoral care of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.

Bishop McGrath formally welcomes the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest into the Diocese of San Jose.

I thought the ICKSP uses the 1955 missal? Anyways, San Jose is blessed for having the ICKSP there!

The Traditional Latin Mass is, so much more beautiful compared to the new mass. I just wished that all Catholic Churches, in the Diocese of San Jose and the world can celebrate the old mass again.

There is no comparison between the Traditional Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo. The Old Mass has such beauty and reverance. There is nothing like it and I feel VERY blessed to attend this Mass and I extremely happy that so many churches are now offering the old Mass.

St Joseph, please help me through my final nursing assessment. Please help me not to let nerves overwhelm me and answer questions and perform to the best of my ability to pass. Prayer to St. Joseph of Cupertino for success in Examinations.

This powerful prayer is very effective in examinations. It has to be said before appearing in the examination. There are two variants to this prayer. Both the prayers are equally effective. You can choose any one of these:-

First Prayer

O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.

Through Christ our Lord.

St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us.


Second Prayer

O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination) examination.

In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.

O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me

O Holy Ghost enlighten me

Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me

Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.
