Livestream Easter Sunday Mass at 8AM (Link Fixed)

Fr Vogel will livestream the Easter Sunday TLM at 8am. It will be a Missa Cantata.

This is the link to watch it live:  

In the Silence of this Unique Holy Saturday

"Indeed, there is in man a sort of nostalgia for God’s company. We have within us a profound desire and a will to be face to face with divinity. On the Christian level, contemplation is actually an intimate conversation with God in silence and solitude. It is impossible in the agitation of the world, but even more so in the distractions of interior noise. The tumults that are the most difficult to contain are still our own interior storms.

"With Christ, contemplation resembles the joy of two lovers who look silently at each other. I often think of the little peasant who used to come each day to the church in Ars.  He remained for a long time absolutely immobile in front of the tabernacle.  On day, the saintly CurĂ© asked him, “What are you doing there, dear friend?” He replied, “I look at Him, and He looks at me.” The little peasant said nothing, because he had no need to speak in order to tell Christ that he loved Him; in return, he had no need of any sign from the Son of God, because he knew that he was truly loved. In love, words are not necessary. The more dense the life of silence, the more alone the soul is with God.  And the more virginal the soul, the more it withdraws from the agitated world.

God or Nothing, Cardinal Robert Sarah (2015)

Regarding the next scheduled TLM


Greetings to you all!

As you all know, Bishop Christensen has suspended the celebration of public masses in the Diocese of Boise.  With that, our next scheduled TLM for April 8th, 2020, will not be a public mass. 

I have spoken with Fr Vogel through email and he had the following message concerning the April 12th, 2020 TLM.

"Please note that there will be an Extraordinary Form Mass on Easter Sunday at 8:00am at St. Paul's.  This Mass will be live-streamed from St. Paul’s and available for view on our website:
The faithful can join the Mass live at 8:00am or watch it later at their own convenience from our website or parish app, or our parish facebook page."

I encourage you all to tune into this mass to continue our support for Fr Vogel and St Paul's.

Lastly, I have attached PDF documents with the propers for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Day.

Let's continue to remain steadfast in our prayers and unite our sufferings during this most holy season of Lent for those that are being affected by this virus.

Live-Streamed Dominican Missa Cantata in Time of Pestilence on Saturday, April 4, 2020

This post is to remind our readers that the friars of the Western Dominican Province House of Studies, St Albert the Great Priory in Oakland California, are live-streaming their Masses on Sundays and Solemnities. They may be viewed live at the Province’s Website, and remain available to watch afterwards. This week, they will also live-stream a Dominican Rite Votive Missa Cantata in Time of Pestilence on Saturday, April 4, at 10:30 a.m. PDT. The celebrant and preacher for this Mass will be Fr Augustine Thompson, OP. Music will be provided by the student friars, who will also serve the Mass. This Mass will replace the usual First Saturday Missa Cantata. The Mass itself is not open to the public, as the public Masses have been suspended in the Diocese of Oakland and elsewhere in California because of the coronavirus.

Something to think about

A More Horrifying Kind of Death
St Augustine

…[C]onsider, and understand that more horrifying kind of death everyone who sins dies. But every man is afraid of the death of the flesh; few, of the death of the soul. In regard to the death of the flesh, which must certainly come sometime, all are on their guard against its approach: this is the source of all their labour. Man, destined to die, labours to avert his dying; and yet man, destined to live forever, labours not to cease from sinning. And when he labours to avoid dying, he labours to no purpose, for its only result will be to put off death for a while, not to escape it; but if he refrain from sinning, his toil will cease, and he shall live forever. Oh that we could arouse men, and be ourselves aroused along with them, to be as great lovers of the life that abides, as men are of that which passes away! Tractate 49 on the Gospel of John
