I have been informed that I posted something that was not suitable for this blog in the past edition of Venite Missa Est! Honestly, at that time I was still swamped with school and threw up what I thought might be interesting to readers, without reading it! How embarrassing! Accept my apologies if it troubled anyone...I was so embarrassed I didn't even go back to read it.  Thank you for the heads up Kansas Catholic and Annie C.

 I listen to podcasts of Catholic Answers (available on iTunes for free) while I mop floors and clean toilets (c'mon WSU class of  2012..........oh please hurry!!!). Let me first say that I actually learn alot from this radio show but  I am continously amazed  how the hosts of the show always applaud His Holiness Benedict XVI and his vision for the church toward orthodoxy but actually reflect a much more liberal view of Catholicism. 

A lady had called in with the question of why (at a cathedral she visited where the tabernacle was off in some side chapel) could the faithful take our Lord into their hands for communion, yet after mass the Eucharist was placed in a monstrance and carried with a "cloth" so as not to touch the consecrated host. She was quite puzzled at that (so am I). 

The hosts of the show danced  around the question for a while without any sort of concrete answer (and mentioned that a cope is used to carry the monstrance) and then assured her that she was mistaken, that in fact a separate benediction service had occurred that required a different protocol but offered no explanation of the differance.

I imagine it really would be hard to actually tell someone that they should not touch divine purity with grubby, filthy paws.....

Father Jackson's 25 ordination mass at St. Anthony was a wonderful affair. I do not personally know Father Jackson but everyone who mentions him always has glowing words of praise for this dear priest.
Oh yeah, it was so good to see Fr. Lies.

...and now the Necessaries

Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of two local churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.


YouTube Video: The Wedding of Ray and Kathleen McCorgary
Submitted by Luke Headley

This video, available on YouTube, is entitled The Wedding of Ray and Kathleen McCorgary and could have been taken anywhere from the late 40's through the 50's. Are you still parishioners Mr. and Mrs. McGorgary? Does anyone know these folks? Is there anyone reading that may have been at this ceremony?

in this old footage take note of: the sanctus bells which look like the same ones we use today. The steam radiators, the plain wood floor of the altar, the communion rail gates amongs other intersting things. One part of the ceremony which has me stumped is the whole wedding party is in the sanctuary...I did not think this was allowed except for the bride and groom (?). Any liturgists out there care to comment?

It is nice to see the church as our fathers, uncles, aunts and grandparents once knew it. The Church and our Faith endures forever.


YouTube Video: Kathleen's 8th Grade Graduation ~ St. Anthony's 

Here is another YouTube video from way back in the day. Anyone know who Kathleen is? 
This video shows the front of the old school, the steps of the church, the old rectory and a framed house next door.


Google Sketchup: Just for Fun

If you ever want to waste a good hour or more, download SketchUp from Google. Sketchup is a free 3D modeling program that is just so easy and fun to play with that beginners can be modeling in 15 minutes! I only include this in Venite because I am designing my own personal altar for my private chapel I am having built in my backyard (I'm kidding).

As with any 3D program, whatever you build you can move, rotate it, flip it, look at it from any angle and generally manipulate it in space....and SketchUp is easy!!! 

Anyway, here is my altar...waddya think? It is basic in shape without texture or color (which you can add later) but was so fun to play with.

Download SketchUp from Google and play around building your own altar, monastery, church or doghouse. It's good clean fun!
