26 July: Wherein Fr. Z asks St Ann to: “Soften the hearts of all those who will now be involved with the implementation of Traditionis custodes.”

The Feast of St. Ann has arrived, and I greet all who are graced with the name of Ann, however spelled.

Let us, on our own, continue to pray this Novena on a daily basis:

Continue to pray this Novena prayer to the grandmother of God, the mother of Mary.

Here is one prayer to St Ann.  There are others.

I ask St Ann to:

Soften the hearts of all those who will now be involved with the implementation of Traditionis custodes

I will ask Ann to “guard the guards”.

Say this each day.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Glorious St. Anne, we think of you as filled with compassion for those who invoke you and with love for those who suffer. Heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present affair which I commend to you under your special protection

(Mention the (above) intention here…)

Deign to commend it to your daughter, our Blessed Lady and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy conclusion. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face.  With you and Mary and all the saints, may I praise and bless Him for all eternity. Amen.

Good St Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray for me.

Say 1: Our Father…
Say 1: Hail Mary…
Say 1: Glory Be…

Who will join me in this Novena?

    Even the non-traditional friendly Archbishop in Edmonton has assured the Latin Mass Community will continue as per usual.

    It seems like a lot of bishops are ignoring TC. When you think about it, to implement it would create more work, more stress, etc for them. Our Latin Mass Community run by the FSSP is the size of a parish (we’re actually larger than the smaller parishes that are dying out, literally), but we share a church with the OF. We can’t just get moved to some other place unless it’s another church. We’re too big and well-established.
