SO beautiful!! Can we please have some priests like that come to Las Vegas and say the Mass for us??? We are stuck in Vat II. This video gave me the chills and made me long for the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Thanks for posting!

Was that "on the tongue"? Aren't they aware of N1H1?

Just kidding. That was a blessed moment following about 60 of them that were really frustrating so I thank you for posting this beautiful and powerful video reflection.

Fr. John!! we would so love that! We used to have the Novus Ordo in Latin but our priest became the Secretary to the Papal Nuncio in Washington... their gain, our loss. We used to chant every Sunday, now our chant group is confined to vespers once a month for first fridays. I think ours is the only chant group in Vegas, that I know of. The only other EF Mass available here is a Low Mass that is also said once a month on first fridays at a different parish, which conflicts with vespers. Its super slim pickings over here. Its like Summorum Pontificum never happened. If we are ever in Wisconsin, I guarantee you we will be showing up. Thanks for the invite! ~Andrea

The Friars of the Immaculate celebrate the TLM in La Crosse, WI every Sunday. As you can see from the video, they all rock!

Fr. John Mary, is Fr. Jack Russell a part of your monastic community? :)

Dumb question moment: does the Fiddlebacks reference in the title of this video refer to the vestment the celebrant was wearing? I grew up in the Archdiocese that gave everyone Theology on Tap (heaven help us all)

Yes , the Chasuble is the "fiddleback" style.
