VIDEO which could help some participate more fully at the Traditional Latin Mass (and probably Novus Ordo too)

A young priest of Denver, Fr. David Nix, put together a video about a year ago, in which, while he says a Traditional Latin Low Mass, he superimposes quotes from St. Francis de Sales – reflections on each step of Holy Mass – and interposes relevant clips from Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.

It’s pretty interesting and it could help some people enter into the sacred action with a fuller and more conscious and actual participation.

Here’s the tweet I saw, which alerted me to the video.

Right now it has 3654 views.

    Thank you to both Fathers for this. I am always trying to understand the Mass – I don’t mean the Latin, I mean in terms of what is occurring during Mass in the atemporal sense.

    Father, that video was overwhelming. Everyone on earth should watch it. Thank you.

    Thanks to Fr. Nix and Fr. Z for this video, well done.

    A month or so ago Fr. Nix discussed Pro-Life Issues with Taylor Marshall: abortion clinics, protests and various methods, civil rights, John Brown, CCC 2242-43, and Alabama HB314. Timothy Gordon remarked on: Nullification, “will not enforce,” Constitutional crisis, funded mandates, and states rights (subsidiarity).
