You now have numerous options for learning the Traditional Latin Mass:
The Traditional Latin Mass
The famed English Oratorian priest, Fr. Frederick Faber, a convert to the Faith who wrote many familiar and beloved Catholic hyms including "Faith of Our Fathers" and "Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All", called the traditional Latin Mass "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven". We can find no cause to disagree with Fr. Faber. Unchanged in any of its essentials for fifteen centuries, it continues to have a strong appeal to many Catholics - young and old - who have found in this Mass the most fitting expression of Catholic worship.
The dignity and solemnity of the ancient Roman Rite provides a "sense of the sacred", while the rich treasury of prayers, actions, and symbols perfectly exemplify the unchanging Catholic teaching on the Sacrifice of the Mass and the True Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
In The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, encompassing all of Rhode Island, the traditional Latin Mass has been offered regularly since 1994 at Holy Name of Jesus Church. Since Pope Benedict's motu proprio Summorum Pontificum took effect on 14 September 2007 at least five other parishes in the Diocese of Providence have begun to offer Mass in the "Extraordinary Form" on a regular basis.
We are most grateful to Bishop Thomas J. Tobin for his encouragement and support.
Happy 125th Anniversary to Holy Name of Jesus Parish!
