16 April – Holy Mass (TLM) Easter Thursday – LIVE VIDEO: 1200h CDT (GMT/UTC -5) – With a fervorino (aka homily) – Pope Benedict XVI’s Birthday

Will you please subscribe to my channel? HERE

I will LIVE stream a Traditional Latin Mass at NOON Central Daylight Time (= GMT/UTC -5 and ROME 1900h).

The Mass formulary: Thursday in the Octave of Easter.  It is Pope Benedict XVI’s 93 Birthday.  Holy Mass is offered for his intention.  With great gratitude for his friendship to me in years past and for the gift of Summorum Pontificum.

I’ll say a Low Mass, but I’ll sing the Sequence anyway.

  • NB: You can find an English translation of the Mass formulary HERE.  Scroll down. Use the 1960 setting.
  • We can say the Regina Caeli together, since the Angelus bells are usually ringing when the live stream starts.
  • I will say a Spiritual Communion prayer at the very beginning for those of you who cannot make a Eucharistic Communion. 
  • I will also recite in Latin the traditional  “Statement of Intention” (…a hint to priests).
  • At the end, after the Leonine Prayers, I’ll say a “Prayer against pandemic” from the Roman Ritual with blessing with a fragment of the True Cross.

I’ll add a “fervorino” (short sermon).

My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things and I desire Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee. Amen.

    The choking and subsequent exorcism prayer, (thought it was just a bit of allergies), hit me. Was personally hit by similar, several times, while praying alone in our adoration chapel, at night. Always on my final prayer of the holy hour. Thought it was heart disease. (Probably was – long story). But suddenly makes sense. Gasping for breath, could barely finish. All in the past 12 months. Sorry….I know I’m not making much sense, but this was aimed at me today. God is up to something. So is the adversary.
    Thanks Fr. Z, for making this available.
