Paulus Institute: DVD of Pontifical Mass coming

Remember!  If you liked the broadcast of the Pontifical Mass on EWTN, be sure to thank the Paulus Institute.

From the Paulus Institute:

DVD, Photographs of Pontifical Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Paulus Institute today announced it will be making available a DVD and photographs of the historic Pontifical Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form) celebrated last weekend at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception by His Excellency Bishop Edward Slattery of Tulsa, Okla.

This Mass – the first at the Basilica in nearly 50 years – was standing room only and watched live by many of the Faithful on EWTN. Due to an overwhelming demand, the Institute is working as quickly as possible to get the DVD produced and the photographs available.

Please bookmark and check back daily for updates. We will send out another notice when these products are completed and online.

The Paulus Institute was formed for the propagation of sacred liturgy. The Pontifical Traditional Latin Mass that took place April 24th in honor of Pope Benedict on his five-year inauguration anniversary was celebrated in front of about 4,500 Faithful at the Basilica.

The Traditional Latin Mass, as this Pontifical Solemn Mass demonstrates, has been described as “The most beautiful thing this side of Heaven.” The DVD and photographs are something you’ll want to own and give out to friends and family as a wonderful tool or evangelization of the sacred traditional liturgy. The Mass featured several choirs singing sacred choral music and Gregorian chant.

    Father Z: Will the DVD include the commentary?

  2. AnAmericanMother says:

    I Emailed the Paulus Institute and asked them the same question. Hopefully if they weren’t planning that they’ll consider it if we all ask!

  3. Jacob says:

    Say a prayer that it is closed captioned…

  4. I don’t know much about this DVD or what it will include. I assume that the DVD will have the audio as it was broadcast.

  5. cpaulitz says:

    The Institute is in the early stages of the DVD. There are many options for the commentary and music. I can tell you it will indeed be all that it was on EWTN and more.

    If you already illegally ripped it off DVR and made your own bootleg copy, be sure to donate to the Paulus Institute anyway.

    Cannot wait till it’s ready.

    An exercise in the virtue of Patience is in order! :)
