Marathon Sunday, Again

As many of us can recall, the Cleveland Marathon has made it difficult for the TLM Faithful to get to St. Stephen's for Sunday Mass at 9:30. But, thanks to a Friend who forwarded us the map of the Marathon for this Sunday, May 20, 2018. It appears there should be no problem getting to St. Stephen this time. The map shows Lorain Ave is clear and open at W. 57th.

*Cleveland TLM Friends has no liability if things change.
*This would not be the first time we have been mislead.

Mass, St Joseph the Worker, May 1

In 1949, 6 years before establishing the Feast of St Joseph the worker, Pope Pius XII wrote:
It may be said in all truth that the Church, like Christ, goes through the centuries doing good to all. There would be today neither Socialism nor Communism if the rulers of the nations had not scorned the teachings and maternal warnings of the Church. On the bases of liberalism and laicism they wished to build other social edifices which, powerful and imposing as they seemed at first, all too soon revealed the weakness of their foundations, and today are crumbling one after another before our eyes, as everything must crumble that is not grounded on the one corner stone which is Christ Jesus.

Then, in 1955, the venerable pontiff set forth the Feast to counter the violent "May Day" demonstrations fashioned by communists, announcing instead the holy dignity of man in his labor. Pope Pius XII saw atheistic communists sabotaging the meaning of work. They decried it as demeaning to humans, crumbling that social edifice of society. This conflicts greatly with Catholic thought: work is a labor of love and union with the Divine Builder Himself. "Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it."

From a Friend:

There will be a Choral Offering of hymns and chants by Cantualis of Cleveland at ST Stephens Catholic Church on Tuesday May 15th 2018 at 7:30pm
Cantualis is a new choir born of  a desire to offer musicians in the community an opportunity to learn 12th to 21st century liturgical music and to hone the skills necessary to present offerings such as Lessons and Carols, Tenebrae, Vespers, Compline and Masses. In doing so they provide a valuable service to the community while simultaneously enriching their faith and developing a passion for music of substance.
