Topics: Three high Masses: In Three days...Clear Creek Abbey: Grape Harvest October 2013


Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of only two churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita diocese. 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.


Three High Masses in Three Days
Submitted by Larry Bethel

Blogger's note: Please be aware that All Saints day Mass will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament Parish, 124 N Roosevelt St., the corner of East Douglas and Roosevelt.

We are happily celebrating 3 High Masses this week.

The first is for All Saints on Nov 1, Friday, a holy day of obligation, which will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament at 7 P.M.

The second is All Souls on Nov 2, Saturday, celebrated at St Anthony at 10:30 A.M.

And the Sunday Mass at 1 P.M. Nov 3, 4th Resumed Sunday after Epiphany, will also be a High Mass.

Grape Harvest at Clear Creek Abbey - October 2013
Submitted by Larry Bethel
"I am the vine: you the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit..." - (John 15:5)

"...The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest that he send laborers into his harvest." - (Luke 10:2)

"If, however the needs of the place or poverty require [the monks] to labor themselves in gathering in the harvest, let them not grieve at that; for then are they truly monks when they live by the labor of their hands, as our Fathers and the Apostles did. But let all things be done in moderation for the sake of the faint-hearted." - (Holy Rule, Ch. 48)

"That wine may cheer the heart of man." - (Psalm 103:15)

The monks of Saint Benedict engage in many forms of manual labor. Recently it was harvest time in our vineyard. We grow grapes of the Cynthiana family, very similar to (some say identical with) Norton grapes, popular in Missouri. We grow them mostly for wine -making, although we do serve them sometimes as table grapes. All available monks participate in the grape harvest, some clipping the clusters, others transporting them to the monastic winery, while still others begin to separate them from stems before placing them in barrels. Then begins the long process of making them into wine.
