    Thank you for your live streamed Mass and homily. I will remember to pray for Fr. Briggs today.

    Since you mentioned the distractions of the world that keep us from considering our last end, I thought I would share a small project my wife and I put together. It is a distraction that is supposed to do the opposite–to help us remember death. Set in the style of old time radio, this is a 20 minute mystery that, hopefully, will motivate some people to pray for the poor souls or even join the Purgatorian Archconfraternity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSKePCH7LdI

    From For the Regular Catholic Curious About Tradition, by Steve Skojec:

    The third time I saw a TLM, I didn’t even stay. I’d just met a beautiful young woman about six months previously, and had helped her come into the Church. I didn’t know it at the time, but she would later become my wife. We were at the Novus Ordo Mass together one Sunday, and after it was over, as we knelt there praying, a priest came out and started quietly offering a TLM. I didn’t even know it was on the schedule. Feeling the need to teach my then-girlfriend about all the Catholic things she hadn’t yet been exposed to, I leaned over to her and said, “This is the way the Church used to do Mass. I thought you might find it interesting.” I felt like I was showing her an exhibit in a museum. I looked at her face, and was surprised by what I saw there. Her eyes stared ahead in rapt attention, and a smile creased the corners of her full lips. “This,” she said to me in a tone of awe, her gaze never leaving the altar, “this is what Mass is supposed to be like.”

    But I thought I knew better.

    Dear Father Z, I know I am four days late in saying this (owing to being overwhelmed with a houseful of family visitors staying)… but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, albeit belatedly, for your meaningful and very moving homily at this Traditional Requiem Mass for Father Charles Briggs.

    He was a dear friend of my parents and of all our family ever since he was sent to my hometown as a newly ordained priest. At only 61 he was rather young to die, but his time had come after many years of continual physical suffeting and he was well prepared. One of my very last conversations with him on a visit to St Mary’s at Chislehurst last year was precisely on this subject of the need to always remember the Four Last Things!

    May he rest in peace.
