Rorate Caeli

Time to Prepare (Part 2) ...

The other day we brought you, via our friends at Audio Sancto, a hard-charging traditional Lenten Mission delivered by Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea (listen here).

With Ash Wednesday on the horizon, we bring you one last traditional Lenten Mission (by a priest of the FSSP), since they are nearly extinct outside of fully traditional Mass sites.

Lent is coming. The time to prepare is coming to an end.

    Both are Fraternity priests.

  4. Could you please explain a bit what "Lenten Missions" are, as I've never heard of them?

    In the years before VII, often times parishes would hold missions, or talk, for the Faithful. Led by priests, they would prepare the Faithful for various things, like Lent, Marriage, etc.

    Listen to them and you'll understand.

    Thousands of words could be written about the tragic significance that one today would have to ask Mark's question.

    New springtime? Huh?

  7. Our SSPX Chapel will have a Mission the week after Laetare Sunday. Merci Marcel! Deo Gratias!

    LS, ask them to tape it.
