This lovely Mass was celebrated at Holy Redeemer and was attended by conference participants and others. Thank you to all the organizers.
Philadelphia is in need of its own "Latin Mass" parish. With all the churches closed and slated for closing in this Archdiocese, hopefully these blessed faithful will get what is their right, and be given a chance to have a permanent home. Stability brings growth. They must be given a chance. Internal politics in the chancery aside, hopefully the diocesan curia will kick into gear and give them a church in a decent location, with a fine pastor.

A must visit.

Yours truly has been a proud lifelong Republican. It was a joy to visit this place today as a pilgrim.
The Democrats have proven to be Liberal sewage. First they promoted slavery and then human abortion and now unnatural marriage and next euthanasia.
No Christian in good conscience can vote Democrat.
Btw, "The Donald" is a Democrat.

Founded by St. John Neumann, this heritage church is where St. Katharine Drexel was baptized.
It was sold by the Archdiocese and is now reportedly owned by a drug-rehab organization.
It has been slated for demolition - the date was set in 2012.
The preservationists are crying out for this historic landmark to be saved. No one seems to care.
Sigh. What nutty times we live in. This house of worship has been here since 1848.
I would offer it to a dynamic, fresh new religious order full of life, talent and prayer.
The ICK or FSSP would do well to make an offer and restore this temple to glory.
On the same property is a lovely convent and rectory.
Grants from the city and downtown businesses can restore this treasure of inestimable value. Someone contact the mayor and put in an offer.

The nephew of Dietrich von Hildebrand originally told me about it.
Constructed in the 1400s.
A tomb modeled after the Holy Sepulchre of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, located in Jerusalem.
Made according to drawings and descriptions of pilgrims.
This is a smaller version than the original.

Hero, from the ancient Greek: ἥρως.
A person or who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage, bravery or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good.
Cardinal Burke: a man of distinguished courage and ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
In short, my hero. I was his altar boy almost twenty years ago at the church of St. Agnes when he sang Pontifical Mass in 1996 at the invitation of the pastor, a renowned church musician, Msgr. Richard J. Schuler, PhD. The splendor of the Roman rite is a perfect tool for the new evangelization.
May the Lord bless and reward His Eminence. Keep doing the Lord's work. GOD IS WITH YOU.

An American nun in Assisi.
Many times I heard my grandfathers speak in hushed reverence of the fine teaching sisters they knew and loved from their youth - and the traditional habit always meant so much to them. They both lamented its absence in their later years.
A witness to the nations. Oblation, grace, mercy, salvation.
