WHY SHOULD WE GO TO CHURCH?

March 23, 2017

Misericordia 

Gratias

Is the greatest salutary Theophany of the Mass (as experienced by Sr. Lucia at her convent in Tuy, Spain in 1929) the key to the Third Secret?  This vision where the words “Misericordia” and “Gratias” were actually spelled out alongside the vision substantiates the exegesis of “gratias” employed in this book.

From the earliest days, "Protest-tants" denied that the bread and wine, once consecrated by the actions of Christ's validly ordained priest, truly becomes the Body and Blood of Christ, while retaining the appearance of bread and wine.

To deny this truth is to become a heretic. To deny this truth is to Forego Catholicism and to become a "protest-tant."

Thus, we have the beautiful prayer of St. John Chrysostom:

Canonized Latin Mass

September 29, 2015

Each month, MAETA sponsors a Canonized Latin Mass Divine Liturgy--one for the living and one for the Souls in Purgatory.  These Masses are celebrated by a priest ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, as it was before Vatican Two; and he prays the Canonized Latin Mass as it was prescribed before Vatican Two.  Those on the Prayer List will share in the benefits of these Masses.  As a thank you, every donator is added to the Prayer List.
