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.
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!
