TLM News for July

July will kick off with the Feast of the Precious Blood on Monday, July 1. Of course, Immaculate Conception offers the Holy Sacrifice on Mondays at 7am.

Independence Day will follow on Thursday, and Mass at St Stephen's will be at 7am instead of 6:30pm, as it is regularly celebrated

Furthermore, we have the normal observance of First Friday and First Saturday this week, July 5 and 6. The regular schedule of those Masses is unchanged.

On Saturday July 13, the second Saturday of the month, there will NOT BE a 9am Mass at St. Elizabeth. However, the third and fourth Saturdays, July 20 and 27, remain unchanged: Mass at 9am at St. Elizabeth.

Pride is an interesting concept in this month dedicated to the Sacred Heart, which, in effect, has been hijacked by those attached to the sodomitical revolution.

Is it unreasonable to expect that a culture of self-absorption would adopt the word “pride” to denote their devotion? And what might self-absorption have necessarily to do with sodomy? In short, it’s the root cause, so says St Paul.

In his letter to the Romans, St Paul addresses this very type of sin, and explains that it was the rejecting of God and focusing on self that delivered them up to their own shameful affections.

1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God or given thanks: but became vain in their thoughts.  And their foolish heart was darkened.

Vain, vanity, pride.

1:23 And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts and of creeping things.

How true! We worship ourselves. We believe animals to be equal, nay, even better than people.

1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
And St Paul goes on to describe the manifestation self absorption....

1:26 For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.
1:27 And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.

St Paul concludes with a litany of all the sins which accompany this rejection of the Incorruptible God. It’s quite evident our generation suffers from this.

As we near the end of this month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Humility Himself, pray especially hard for peace in our families, purity in children, conversion of sinners, justice upon criminals, purification of the Church, and while you’re at it, the reclaiming of the Rainbow. It’s rightfully God’s.

10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head: and his face, as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.

Organist Position Available

Fr Doug Brown, a Friend of the TLM and pastor of Mary Queen of Peace in Cleveland, is currently seeking an organist to fill their Director of Music position at the parish.

Incidentally, Fr Brown is the celebrant for St Stephen’s Corpus Christi Mass this Thursday.

It is Cleveland TLM Friends’  understanding that a tradition-minded individual with an affection for the TLM would be a good fit for the position at MQP.

Corpus Christi

The great feast celebrating Our Lord’s most precious Body and Blood is upon us. Plan on assisting at the Mass which the Angelic Doctor of the Church was so closely tied to.

And why is there yet another feast celebrating the Body of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament? For sure, just a short time back we celebrated Holy Thursday, the institution of the Blessed Sacrament. The short answer is that the Church recognized the many other liturgical functions on that day, and in Her Wisdom saw fit to dedicate a day solely devoted to the Body and Blood of Christ.

For the most part, the feast has been transferred to Sunday. But we can observe the traditional day here in Cleveland.
