Getting Ready for the Traditional Latin Mass

South Jerseyans who love or are curious about the traditional Mass should definitely make an effort to attend this program hosted at St. Peter's Church in Merchantville, which is slated to be a fantastic look at the preconciliar liturgy.

Father Manuppella is the pastor of St. Peter's Church in Merchantville (Camden Diocese). He will be starting a weekly Traditional Latin Mass at his parish on the 1st Sunday of Advent 2007.

Assumption Sermon of the Rev. James Bartoloma

Fr. Bartoloma gave an outstanding sermon on August 15, the feast of the Assumption, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Camden. I particularly love the way that he opened up the homily with Howard Carter at the tomb of Tutankhamen....which he then developed into a theme of appreciating historical treasures.

His words are definitely applicable to all of the Catholic traditions that we are starting to cover here.

Worth reading if you get a chance!
