25 August – LIVE VIDEO Traditional Latin Mass – 1200h CDT (GMT/UTC -5): St. Louis IX, King – Blessing of St. Benedict Medals

After Mass: Blessing of St. Benedict Medals

Will you please tell others about these Masses?  Will you please subscribe to my channel? HERE Use the notification Bell!

  • NB: You can usually find an English translation of the Mass formulary HERE.  Scroll down. Use the 1960 setting.
  • We can say the Angelus together since the 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
    For texts of Prayers before Mass for each day of the week, in versions for laypeople and for priests: HERE

The Benedict medals I blessed… are from the Monastère Saint-Benoît.    They are doing great things there, including rebuilding an old Abbey.

They have one of the coolest St. Benedict medals I’ve seen.  Check out their Boutique:

    What is the significance of the white tunic (?) on your Title Page for this video?

    acardnal, I believe it’s the relic of the shirt of St. Louis that is (or was) kept in the sacristry/treasury of Notre Dame de Paris.
