Off to Mission Territories

Happy Feast of St Peter Chanel!

On Thursday evening I'm departing for a few days holiday to the island state of Tasmania, which continues in its unique battle for the Faith, as it has from the beginning. Bishop Ullathorne called it a 'cesspool', priests went mad, the faithful wavered. At present, Tasmania hasn't a seminarian. And yet, it is perhaps the most beautiful place in the country.

Tasmania has a remnant of fervent, faithful soldiers, who I am looking forward to meeting very much. The Classical Liturgy is celebrated in the Archdiocese of Hobart on the first Sunday of the month, with more information at the Tassie Trads blogsite. Please pray for the Church in Tasmania.

Dominus regnavit, exsultet terra: laetentur insulae multae!

William Cox, Governor of Tasmania. Further information will be posted on the Juventutem Australia website soon.

Petition for Iraqi Christians

“Many Christian refugees arrive from Syria on mountain paths used by smugglers, bringing with them little more than a suitcase or two and harrowing stories of rape, kidnapping and murder. Upon arriving, the first place many of them go is the Assyrian and Chaldean churches.”

If you are a UK citizen please make sure you have signed the petition to help Iraqi Christians. The deadline is 23 April so there is not much time left. You need to submit a valid e-mail address (which is not published) and then click on the e-mail they send to verify it otherwise your name will not be included.

You can sign the petition here.

The Aid to the Church in Need Middle East Appeal continues. See here.

Very Important News

A Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Faldstool according to the Classical Roman Rite will be celebrated by His Lordship Christopher Prowse, Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne, at St Aloysius' 233 Balaclava Rd, Caulfield North, next Sunday, that is the 22nd of April, Good Shepherd Sunday, at 11am.

Bishop Prowse is a wonderful supporter of our community, and of Juventutem Australia. His Lordship is coming to celebrate his very first Classical Rite Liturgy, and he is doing this by his own initiative, and his visitation is a source of great joy.

Now, I must let you know how important it is that everyone for whom it is naturally possible to be in attendance makes the effort to come. Even if it requires hours of travel. If you love the Classical Liturgy, you must come. If you are partial to Latin and Gregorian Chant, you must come. If you love what is beautiful, you must come. If you are looking for God, you must come. If you have never been to a Classical Liturgy before, you must come. If you are a lapsed Catholic, you must come. If you have been persevering in the faith for the last 40 years, you must come. If you are in Victoria, you must come. Because if you want the Classical Liturgy in Melbourne to have a centre of its own, for its own exclusive use, and restoration, you must come. That's right. So if you think yourself anything of a militant, you must come. You must come. This will be the ultimate witness to the splendour of the Classical Roman Rite and its power to transform souls.

There will be a public reception for Bishop Prowse after the 11am Mass. Juventutem Australia will be having a meeting with His Lordship following this. If you can't be there, please pray for its success.

Please pray for this intention. We are an indispensable part of the Universal Church, visible, and in its midst. We have a powerful tool for evangelisation, the sanctification of souls, and for the transformation of culture - and we love our Bishops. And they love us, too.

Next Sunday, 11am - St Aloysius' Caulfield (Low Mass 8:30am Burke Hall, Kew). VENITE!
