    Happy Ash Wednesday, everybody.

    May this season of Lent be a true blessing to all of you on EP, as we prepare to reflect on the death of Jesus, then celebrate His rising from the dead. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever, amen

    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...

    Where Is Your Alliegance With God Or With Man?

    I Am Not a Rad-trad.

    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...

    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...
