TORONTO! Our Lady of Fatima Latin Mass

 

Tomorrow, May 13 is the 100th anniversary of the appearance of the Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Mother of God at Fatima, Portugal. In the traditional calendar, May 13 is the Feast (3rd class) of St. Robert Bellarmine.  In the new calendar for the Novus Ordo Missae, it is the "Optional Memorial" of Our Lady of Fatima. An "Optional Memorial" is just that, the priest can choose the text for Our Lady of Fatima or the Ferial. The traditional calendar was never updated liturgically to recognise the appearance of Our Lady at Fatima.

In the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, Pope Benedict XVI made possible the updating of the traditional Mass calendar of 1961 to include more current feasts and saints. Recently, the Pontifical Council Ecclesia Dei in the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith decreed that Our Lady of Fatima could be celebrated on May 13 in the traditional Mass. How appropriate then that the first change should be for Our Lady and in 2017, to recognise the 100th anniversary of her appearance at Fatima.

The text of the Mass is the Votive Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (August 22) with the double Alleluia for Paschaltide. The feast of St. Robert Bellarmine will be commemorated, meaning the Collect, Secret and Postcommunion will be doubled to include those from both Masses.

Una Voce Toronto is very grateful to the pastor and parish of St. Mary's Polish Roman Catholic Church for the opportunity to celebrate this great day.

We ask you to be generous at the collection as the funds will be used by the parish for sanctuary renovations.


Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Christ is Risen!

Dear Vox,

Please remember my Mom and I at Mass. I wish I could be there but my Guardian Angel will have to go in my place.

Most Holy Mother of God, save us!

In Christ the King,

Margaret
