Cardinal Sarah’s Cri de Coeur: The Catholic Church Has Lost Its Sense of the Sacred

[The following is from an interview at National Catholic Register]

Cardinal Sarah’s Cri de Coeur: The Catholic Church Has Lost Its Sense of the Sacred Edward Pentin interview with Robert Card. Sarah at National Catholic Register

Pentin: Why do you think more and more young people are attracted to traditional liturgy / the extraordinary form?

I do not think so. I see it; I am a witness to it. And young people have entrusted me with their absolute preference for the extraordinary form, more educative and more insistent on the primacy and centrality of God, silence and on the meaning of the sacred and divine transcendence. But, above all, how can we understand, how can we not be surprised and deeply shocked that what was the rule yesterday is prohibited today? Is it not true that prohibiting or suspecting the extraordinary form can only be inspired by the demon who desires our suffocation and spiritual death?

5th TLM on the 5th Sunday after Pentecost



The Traditional Latin Mass for the 5th Sunday after Pentecost was the 5th monthly TLM offered at St Paul Catholic Church in Nampa. Tom Lester, Chair of the Treasure Valley Latin Mass Society, gave a short presentation before Mass to let folks who have only experienced the ordinary form of the Mass (the Mass of Paul VI instituted after Vatican II) know that there is a different approach to the extraordinary form of the Mass, and that, contrary to the ordinary form, following every word and gesture is not only not expected, but it's ok to be rather bewildered and feel lost. So do not be afraid to let it go, the sense of wanting to know what is happening at every moment, and to enter into the liturgical action of the priest. It takes time to get used to the flow of the Mass, and to let go of certain expectations shaped by our prior experience, and discover the mystery of the ancient form and let it's expectations shape us. It takes time, but the Mass of the Saints has a power all its own, shaped as it was by the long experience of the Church and the faithful.   

This was the first time a bit of social time was offered with refreshments after Mass.  Quite a few folks enjoyed visiting and a snack!



The expectation is that after next month's TLM on Sunday, August 11, the new parish hall will be open and we will be able to visit there.


Many thanks to Fr Vogel for his generous service, and to all the folks who have put so much into supporting the TLM; the altar servers, the schola, the ushers, and all the work that goes on behind the scenes that helps make the Mass flow smoothly and beautifully.  Special thanksgiving also to his Excellency, Bishop Peter Christensen, for instituting the monthly TLM as a permanent ministry under Fr Vogel at St Paul.  Please pray for our bishop and Fr Vogel, that this may grow and prosper.

Traditional Latin Mass This Sunday, June 9th


Traditional Latin Mass This Sunday
 
Just a reminder that this Sunday, June 9th at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Nampa, Fr. Vogel will say the Traditional Latin Mass (Missa Cantata, a sung Mass) at 2:30 pm. This Sunday is Pentecost! We hope to see you there and don’t forget to invite friends and relatives you think might be interested in experiencing the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Mass ( aka: TLM).
 
Also, news from Angie Hancock from St. Paul’s:
 
Dear friends in Christ,
 
Due to circumstances outside of our control, we will not be able to use Marist Hall this weekend for our potluck as it is being shut down for all events at St. Paul’s. However, we do still want to have a small social after the Latin Mass.
 
Instead of a full meal, please bring desserts or finger foods to share. I will be in the kitchen in the main church that is located right near the bathrooms and cry room until 2:20pm. Please do be aware that the next Mass will be starting at 5pm, so we will only have a short time inside the narthex to socialize.
 
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
 
In Christ through Mary,
Angie Hancock
 
Note: We will still have the door prize for the Saint Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal after Mass in the Narthex. You can sign up for the door prize in the Narthex before you enter the Church for Mass. (Must be present to win.)
