    Liam:

    O good... I am glad I was able to give you all more lead time!

    If you can make it this Saturday and then next Saturday, then Our Dear Mother would be even more consoled!

    (CGZ... yea, I am back in the old calendar all right... and the VO to boot)

    Oh, you mean the VSOP calendar unreformed by pontifex Gaius Iulius Caesar...the next year affected by the Gregorian calendrical reform will come 80 years from now, as the last one was 120 years ago.

    “Have compassion on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother, covered with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.” OLF

    NOTICE

    Has the time allotted to us abruptly ended for Communions of Reparation as willed by heaven through Our Lady of Fatima?

    I have also changed the title of this thread which now reads:

    Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary - The Allotted Time May Have Ended

    which used to read:

    Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary - This Saturday

    It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!" Padre Pio

    ...I fear (not the bad kind) we are about to see why...
  • Francis,

    We're about to experience the world without the public celebration of the Mass, but does that mean that we are actually without the Mass?

    The oodles of livestreams I've seen of Masses near and far suggest that the world is far from going without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    I certainly hope you are both right CGZ and Caleferink. I would not want to see the day when there is not a single Mass offered on the face of the globe.

    a thought:

    Does the NUMBER of Masses celebrated daily and the NUMBER of attendees of those Masses have a greater spiritual impact on the state of being BECAUSE of their numbers? Would a significant lessening of those offerings be of consequence?

    Tommorow, if you can possibly find a Mass that you can attend and receive Holy Communion. If not, please pray 1, 2 or even 3 decades of the rosary.

    Speaking of devotion to Our Lady (though this time under another title), here's video of the Renewal of Consecration of the United States to the Blessed Virgin Mary, as presented on EWTN from the Cathedral in Los Angeles, where Abp. Gomez, president of the USCCB, presided over the ceremony Friday afternoon:

    As regards the music for the ceremony: the Regina Coeli at the end didn't quite come out right.

    I knew he had to be an Old-Calendarist.

    Congrats Chris. Did you compose a piece for his wedding?
  • Invited not to do so.

    In fairness, we were blessed to be able to have music at all, in San Francisco. The groom's two older brothers sang several pieces, but it was a low Mass. Somewhere there's a live-stream link.

    “Souls are so numerous whom the justice of God condemns for sins committed against Me that I come to request reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.”
