Recently my mom gave our family a beautiful old out-of-print book (originally published in 1940) which my Grandmother had given my family when we were children! (I wasn't able to find the hardcover available and the two paperback copies are very expensive.) Today is not only the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, but also the 6th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum going into effect. As Father Z mentioned earlier today, "We have a lot to be thankful for, both in the way of the Holy Cross and in how we renew the Sacrifice of the Cross during celebrations of Mass with the traditional Roman Rite." We plan to read this book to our children after dinner...
... and then celebrate with cake!
We are so very thankful for the extra blessing of our occasional Latin Masses
and continue to pray that they will become more frequently available in our area.
Happy Feast Day!
