EVENTS: Upcoming Lectures in Arizona by Dr. Kwasniewski - Phoenix 12/5 and Tucson 12/6

On Saturday, December 5, I will be speaking on the topic “The King’s Advent: Why the Epistle is Read to the East and the Gospel to the North” at Mater Misericordiae Catholic Church (Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter), in Phoenix, AZ. 

The lecture will explain the cosmic and anthropological symbolism of why the subdeacon faces east and the deacon north when chanting their readings at Solemn Mass, how the same symbolism is present in the Missa cantata when only the priest sings the readings, and why this detail is important, like every other detail in the traditional Mass. 

We will sing Vespers at 5:00 pm for the Second Sunday of Advent. The talk will begin at 5:30pm, with socializing and book signing afterwards. I will have copies of several books, including my new book from Sophia Institute Press: The Holy Bread of Eternal Life: Restoring Eucharistic Reverence in an Age of Impiety.

Then, on Sunday, December 6, I will speak on the topic “Why Should I Consistently Attend the Traditional Latin Mass?” at St. Gianna Oratory (Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest), in Tucson, AZ.

The lecture will go into the importance of stability, consistency, and good habits in the spiritual life; how the classical Roman rite is a superior home or environment in which to settle down; and how it can be harmful to bounce back and forth between the Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo. 

The lecture will be held at 4:00 pm, followed by socializing and book signing; the evening will conclude with sung Vespers at 6:00 pm.

More details may be found in the posters below. I look forward to meeting traditional Catholics in the Phoenix and Tucson areas!
