The Traditional Latin Mass in Delaware

I found this little gem of a video courtesy of Alison at TotusTuusFamily.  For those of you who have not yet been to a TLM, these little vignettes might be of interest to you.   Allison really captures the beauty of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass at both the altar and in the faces of those in the pews.  Thanks Allison!


  1. Its absoutely gorgeous. Thanx for the video

  2. Thank you so much for sharing!

    When the idea came to me during Mass I thought that God might want to see this Mass shared with others who for whatever reason may not have it on their radar. If that is the case, then you are God's hands. I really hope our beautiful Latin Mass is attended by those who seek reverence. It is our Churches rich and beautiful history.

  3. envious! Is it wrong to covet your neighbor's mass?

  4. Thanks Joyce. I really need to find one locally and attend. I just did a search and came up with the note that there are no Latin masses on Staten Island. Wow, I would never have guessed that. In fact, only eleven churches in all of NYC offer one. And NYC has hundreds of Catholic churches. I didn't realize how rare they are.

  5. No Julie, it's ok. I think I'm going to start a novena on this blog for those wanting the TLM but who are denied their right to have one.

  6. What a lovely film! I especially enjoyed seeing so many children in the parish who were clearly engaged in the liturgical life of the Church.

    We are blessed here in Anchorage to have the TLM offered every Friday about a mile from our house and then on Sundays in the Dominican rite at our downtown parish.

    I would disagree that Mass has always been reverent and quiet up until Vatican II. Fr. Z has written about this recently, and Msgr. Charles Pope recently posted some comments about the funeral Mass of JFK. It seems we humans have always done a good job of marring the sacred.

    Catholics who desire a greater degree of reverence may also find those hopes fulfilled in the Byzantine Catholic liturgy. It is very, very reverent and holy. In the meantime, I too will be joining you all in prayer for the TLM.

  7. Thanks Mindy! It surprises me to learn that there is a regularly offered TLM in Anchorage, Alaska, but not a single one in Staten Island, NY. Some day...


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
