First TLM in Brownsville Cathedral in decades scheduled for Oct 7 September 11, 2014

The glorious Feast of Our Lady of Victory, now known as Our Lady of the Rosary.  Either way, this was the Feast commemorating the inspired Catholic victory over the marauding Saracen navy at Lepanto.  What a great date to commemorate by returning to the use of the Traditional Latin Mass!

My South Texas correspondent informs me that the cathedral rector, who has been offering TLMs twice weekly at another downtown parish, Sacred Heart, while the cathedral underwent renovations (and not wreckovations!), intends to offer what is the first Traditional Latin Mass the cathedral has seen in probably 40 years or more on Tuesday, October 7.  A further intent is to offer TLMs on every major Marian Feast.

Please pray that souls will avail themselves of this Mass!  The TLM available at Sacred Heart parish is generally somewhat sparsely attended, although  a recent High Mass on the Feast of the Assumption attracted a good crowd, apparently. Deo Gratias!

I could not find any interior shots of the cathedral post-renovation, but I am told that a proper high altar has been restored.  I am uncertain regarding altar rails – those appeared to have been removed from the 150+ year old cathedral sometime back.  Here is an exterior shot:


Having a priest who desires to offer the Traditional Mass makes all the difference in the world.  Without one, getting the TLM offered is exceedingly difficult.

What a great day this will be!  Another diocese having the TLM regularly in its cathedral.  God be praised!  And thank Bishop Daniel Flores for his openness to Summorum Pontificum and the great and holy Mass!

No, I think that’s the best way. God bless you for doing so.
