Magnificent.

Prayers and best wishes to Fr. LaCroix for a long and fruitful journey toiling in the vineyard of the Lord.

Here is to many, many masses Father. God bless you. Priests like you will save the traditional liturgy for future generations. We have to attend the EF as frequently as possible, form scholas, and donate as much money as we possibly can. When traveling check out Wikkimissa to find traditional masses all over the world.

Some might say these men are just medieval princes wannabe's indulging themselves in an era gone by. That the expensive stuff should be sold to help ze poor, and stuff like that.

But we know better. St. Francis. He lived in rags, yet he believed no expense should be spared for the glory of God. He sent his disciples out with precious pyxs to hold the Eucharist in; his ornate chasuble, made for him by St. Clare, can still be seen.

But why has he got his back to me? I now feel very disenfranchised.

Words can't describe the experience to participate in the Most Holy Scrifice according to the venerable ancient latin rite! Introibo ad altare Dei.
