    I am fond of many of the traditions in the church which seem to not be upheld as important anymore, such as: receiving on the tongue frequent confession veiling the EF of the Mass That being said, I do attend the OF of the Mass more often than the EF, and...

    100% traditional, I love the Latin Tridentine

    Mass which I have been blessed growing up going to. I believe everything the Church has traditionally taught for centuries including that there is no salvation outside the Church. Call me weird or radical if you want, but this is my faith and I'm not about to give it up.

    Where Is Your Alliegance With God Or With Man?

    It is in the light of this New Testament principle of spiritual Israel that Daniel speaks of the abomination of desolation the third and final time. These references can be found in Daniel 8:13; 11:31 and 12:11. Discerning students of prophetic history realize that these verses...

    I Attend The Paul VI Mass

    I can't get to a Tridentine Mass, but I really want to go. I try to hint to people in my parish about restoring the Tridentine Mass, but it doesn't really get a favorable response. They like having the priest facing the people and not having to dress up or wear a head covering...

    EF Mass

    For me the EF Mass is extremely important. I come away from the service feeling that I've really been to Mass and witnessed something truly spiritual and special. For me the most important part is the silence. We live such busy noisy lives nowadays that to come to Church and be...
