Transmitted Sunday Latin Masses from Ave Maria Parish
For the rest of the month of April, Fr. Romanoski and Fr. Passo have been invited to celebrate and sing the Latin Mass privately at 12:30pm on Sundays at the Donahue Academy chapel of Ave Maria Parish. Though this Mass is private you are invited to follow along live from their parish transmission here or here. Though one may not attend these masses in person, parking is available just outside and we will follow the current policy of Ave Maria Parish while under their parish ministry there (unless changed) in distributing Holy Communion afterwards in the parking lot of the same Donahue Academy at around 1:30pm. You can likewise check the sermons page at our website for any recorded sermons from these masses.
We will be available for confessions outside the same Donahue Academy in Ave Maria at 11:30am on the same Sundays.
Please recall that no one in our diocese is obliged to attend Holy Mass on Sundays at present, neither is the reception of Holy Communion in any way obligatory nor does the reception of Holy Communion require having heard mass via transmission prior to it. Please use the same prudence and caution in discerning whether you should go to such an "event." Though social distance rules are observed in their parish set up, it would still be unadvisable given the relative proximity to others if one were sick with a virus for example.
We pray that you each have responded well to the challenge that God has given us during this time of seeking Him by extra effort in prayer and penance. Seek and ye shall find, as the Kingdom of Heaven is within you!
And let us keep out minds and hearts on the prize, the only one we hope to obtain by means of the test of this passing temporal life- recalling the words of the apostle
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot possess the kingdom of God: neither shall corruption possess incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall all indeed rise again: but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall rise again incorruptible. And we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption: and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? Now the sting of death is sin: and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast and unmoveable: always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Cor 15.50-58)
Yours in the Risen Lord,
Frs. Romanoski & Passo
