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

It is an Easter Season Feria. Today I will celebrate Mass “to beg the grace of a good death… ad postulandam gratiam bene moriendi“.  I will say Mass in the vestments I have put aside for my burial – the first time I’ve ever used them for Mass.

  • 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).
  • After Mass and the Leonine Prayers, I will recite a prayer in Latin “In time of pandemic” followed by a blessing with a fragment of the Cross.


THANK YOU to my flower donors! And HUGE thanks to a viewer for the new RELIQUARY (from my wishlist), which now holds a relic of St. Therese de Lisieux.

ADDENDUM: For texts of Prayers before Mass for each day of the week, in versions for laypeople and for priests: HERE

    Fr. Z,

    Thank you so much for offering the Mass for a Good Death; I am so thankful for having participated – it is a great consolation. I needed to hear the words you spoke re: The Four Last Things as during this pandemic, at home in self- isolation, I’ve been drawn to distracting myself with earthly things that will be of absolutely no importance in that final hour. I appreciate this chance to repent and amend my life, and I am immensely grateful that you made this Mass available. With heartfelt thanks.

    We are fortunate in our little parish to hear about the Four Last Things every year. During Advent on each of the 4 Sundays the sermon is devoted to one of the Last Things.
