8 April – Holy Mass (TLM) Wednesday of Holy Week – LIVE VIDEO: 1200h CDT (GMT/UTC -5) – With homily

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 will be for Wednesday in Holy Week.

I know it is Low Mass, but I might sing the Passion of Luke anyway.  What are they going to do?  Sequester me in my residence?

  • NB: You can find an English translation of the Mass formulary HERE.  Scroll down. Use the 1960 setting.
  • We can say the Angelus together, since the Angelus bells are 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).  Today, very short!

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.

Gesù mio, credo che voi state nel ss. Sacramento. V’amo sopra ogni cosa e vi desidero nell’anima mia. Giacchè ora non posso ricevervi sacramentalmente venite almeno spiritualamente nel mio cuore. Coma già venuto io v’abbraccio e tutto mi unisco a voi, non permettete ch’io m’abbia mai a separare da voi. Così sia.

    “I know it is Low Mass, but I might sing the Passion of Luke anyway. What are they going to do? Sequester me in my residence?” I wonder, I mean this in good way, if the basis for change, an organic change, stems from love and the desire to please God. Perhaps this kind of “change” gives greater glory to God. This kind of “flexibility” might be something to be considered. I have no doubt that in chanting the Passions of Luke we give greater glory to God and in doing so it melts the heart of the one chanting to please our Lord so. Unless of course you do not have a good voice. God will plug His ears and say, “I have to go through another Passion again!!”

    Today I learned why the Office/Liturgy of the Hours has people alternately standing or sitting/kneeling during the Psalms… at least in Ireland.

    From the Rule of the Celi De in the Leabhar Breac:

    “When the Psalms are recited, one division is said standing and the next sitting, because when they remain seated, it begets sleep: while if they remain too long standing, it is wearisome.”

  3. Kenneth Wolfe says:

    The former PCED was pretty clear that the Passion can only be chanted during a high Mass.


    If the laity can suffer through this time without Mass in person, hopefully our clergy can at least follow the rubrics when livestreaming Masses.

    Kenneth, for what it’s worth, today being able to participate in the live-stream Mass that Fr. Z offered today, was for us, bliss. Were you present? I can’t understand legalists who run around pointing things out, I dunno, something here about forests and trees. See the deadly threat we are facing, where the entire world has had to come to terms with mortality and the mortality of loved ones, quick? See the fact our church has largely disappeared? Here’s a priest offering the Mass such that we the deprived can participate in some Easter liturgy? And he bothers to sing part of it? Oh my goodness. I had to send a note to my pastor with requests for our funerals, not realizing people may not even get one. Let’s relax our scrutiny muscles a bit.
