We are blessed to have traditional priests in this Diocese.  We are blessed that they offer Masses monthly at a pro-life crisis pregnancy center immediately adjacent to one of the mills in this burg (is Routh Street open with the recent Supreme Court injunction against HB2?).  We are blessed for all they do.

Still, I would so very much like to see a Mass offered publicly outside a mill for the express intention of seeing said mill(s) closed.  We cannot expect man’s laws to stand against so many men violating God’s laws.  Legislation will never be the final answer against child-murder.  We must change men’s hearts and souls, and the Mass is the most efficacious vehicle possible for bringing down Grace and working conversion.  So I pray we may see public Masses outside the local mills, however many remain open, with an eye towards converting those tens of thousands of people who think it just fine to have their child butchered for their own convenience (this is all the video that was available):

This Mass was offered by a priest of the Fraternity of St. Peter at a Denver area mill.  I have forgotten the priest’s name, my apologies (but then again, he might prefer it that way).

I have been told, in a sort of “wink wink know what I mean know what I mean” kind of way, that there is a prohibition in this Diocese against priests offering Mass outside abortion mills or for any “political” purpose of this type.  I have no hard confirmation, and there is probably not a formal policy to this effect, but when pressed area priests become more than slightly evasive on this topic.  I have long wondered why we did not see our priests outside mills more often, when it is widely known that a priestly presence, offering Mass, exorcisms, and generally engaging in spiritual warfare, is an incredibly effective way (perhaps the most effective form) to fight this battle for souls among the principalities and powers that surround these dens of evil.  I am told there is a reason for that and that it is not good for their careers to press this particular point.

I am forced to wonder then, if the situation regarding Masses/priestly presence outside mills is akin to the situation surrounding Summorum Pontificum in this Diocese of Dallas, TX, where there are hints dropped that doing such indicates a priest with too much time on his hands, and shouldn’t he rather help out at a less-than-desirable parish instead of using his pastoral initiative to address critical needs that he perceives or that, horror of horrors, are brought to him by the laity?  After all, I thought Vatican II was NOT about creating an impenetrable system of episcopal committees and clerical micromanagement, but was all about empowering priests and laity with their own wonderful powerfulness?

One thing ol’ Tantumblogo has learned, is that when someone talks about empowering you, get ready to be rendered powerless. But who am I to judge?

My mindless prattling aside, this is something I pray to see in our Diocese with great regularity, until that glorious day when abortion occurs here no more.  I can only imagine the incredible effect seeing the Mass of Ages offered outside a mill would have even on the most hardened of hearts, among both abortionists and abortion-seekers.  I know it would do great violence to those evil spirits that drive the entire abortion industry.  It would certainly result in a good number of saves and, even more importantly, conversions.  And what great benefit would it be to priests, to persevere in the face of persecution in offering the the great and holy Sacrifice of the Mass?!?

May this day come soon!

Yes, may this day come very soon! In hindsight it is so clear that this should have been done right from the beginning…. Why wasn’t it? Because the careerists were already in charge.

Atta baby! Knew you would see that being uploaded and was counting on you doing a write up, hear hear! As always, thanks!

I am SO predictable! Thanks, Steve!

The FSSP priest who regularly celebrates this Mass is the parochial vicar of their Denver parish. He started saying Mass across from Planned Parenthood years ago, and it apparently caught on with diocesan priests there as well.

On the Dallas side, I’m curious as to whether that situation is because of just a few select people in power at the chancery, or is it a more widespread attitude in the Diocese. How quickly could that environment change once Dallas gets new leadership in about 8 years?

They have a portable altar specially made for this purpose. One of the directors of the 40 Days for Life in the past got this going and there were regular Masses in the vacant parking lot across from the 2 story fortress of the killing center.

I think the priest saying Mass is Fr. Hearty of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parish in Littleton, CO. It is a FSSP parish.
