The Value of the Mass

The Value of the Mass
Up to our own times, it has been the constant concern of supreme pontiffs to ensure that the Church of Christ offers a worthy ritual to the Divine Majesty, 'to the praise and glory of His name,' and 'to the benefit of all His Holy Church - Pope Benedict XVI, Summorum Pontificum

Just About Two Weeks

Well, I have just about two more weeks before I go back to the Josephinum. I'm looking forward to a new year and am planning to revise my day to day routine to strengthen my prayer life this year. I'm looking forward to seeing all of my friends again. For any of you who are thinking about seminary, I would encourage it for even only one year. You'll make some of the best friends of your life, I know that I have.

This year's also going to be a year of heavy discernment this year. At the suggestion of my vocation director, I will be visiting some religious orders this year during my breaks. I was originally thinking about religious life before entering diocesan seminary and I've began to think about it again. I'm hoping this year will clear some things up in that aspect, so please pray for me.

I'm also going to try to modify my schedule so that I can pray all of the hours of the breviary every day, or at least as much as possible. Due to my class load last year and the way my schedule was, that was a near impossibility. Last year seemed to be a very "working" year for me and I hope to make this one a very prayerful one.

So, please pray for me these last few weeks of my summer assignment and keep me in prayer for this year at the Pontifical College Josephinum.

With my Cartesian sensibilities, I often have a difficult time praying. But I think I will make an exception for you. :)

I will pray tonight for you.

Zach, are you exercising your rights under Summorum Pontificum and praying the traditional breviary?

I'm afraid I don't have a copy of the traditional breviary. Also, I would need to take the time to learn how to use it.
