Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church celebrates 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.

St. Anthony Christmas Mass Picture on Popular Website
New Liturgical Movement

I recently shared a picture taken off  Facebook, picture credit to Mark Mann, of our Christmas day mass at St Anthony. It was such a great picture that I felt compelled to answer a photo post call  on the very popular New Liturgical Movement website not thinking, since it is such a huge and respected site, that they would ever have the room to post a picture from our little corner of the world...but they did! Mr. Mann I hope this was ok that I shared your Facebook picture...it is such a great pic and it looks great online. I did credit Mr. Mann but the NLM did not print it.

Saturday, January 11, Feast Day of St. Hyginus
CatholicCulture Online
According to the 1962 Missal of Bl. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today is the feast of St. Hyginus. During the four years of his pontificate (138-142), he had to oppose the heresy of Valentinus who at this period came to propagate his errors in the heart of the Christian community in Rome.

It is also historically the feast of St. Theodosius, abbot, born in Cappadocia in the village of Magarisso, who after having endured great sufferings for the Catholic faith, took his rest in peace at the monastery
which he had erected on a lonely hill in the diocese of Jerusalem.
The crown of the empire belonged to Antonius Pius. Hyginus, as Telesphorus' successor, not only had to endure his relentless persecutions but also had to cope with the heretics who made their way to Rome.

Hyginus was a Greek from Athens who, like his contemporary Justin Martyr, was a philosopher. He is said to have done some organizing of the clergy, and it is likely that he addressed the Roman clergy on the subjects of sin in general and of obedience to the Church.

The emergence of Gnosticism is probably the most significant development of Hyginus' pontificate. Cerdo came from Syria and Valentinus from Egypt, and together they taught this system of mystical belief, which was a combination of Greek philosophy and Oriental superstitions regarding Christ. For years Cerdo vacillated between teaching error and repenting, returning to the Church, then falling from grace. Valentinus, however, staunchly defended his cause. Hyginus perceived this as heresy, for it deviated greatly from the true teachings of the Apostles.

Hyginus was said to have suffered gloriously and he was buried on Vatican Hill.

A Practical Guide to Having a Traditional Funeral Mass
Rorate Caeli
Submitted by Larry Bethel

In Penal Times, when the practice of the Catholic religion was prohibited by law in England, Catholics would sometimes bury their loved ones in consecrated ground (pre-Revolt churchyards) under cover of darkness. If nothing else, the darkness would provide a ready explanation for the use of candles...

Today it should be a little easier to make use of the ancient Catholic liturgy for funeral rites. Unless you live in a very favourable location, such as a parish run by one of the Traditional Priestly Institutes, you

would nevertheless be well advised to ensure that your next of kin and executors know exactly what you want, and how to make it happen. Even if you do live in a Traditional Parish, you should think about making provision in your will for anniversary Requiems, and about things like musical options.

For everyone who is going to die one day--that is, for everyone without exception--the Latin Mass Society has put together information relating to the practicalities of organising a Traditional funeral, including things such as how long it is likely to take, how many singers and servers will be needed, and all the different options: Low Mass, Sung Mass with and without incense, High Mass, and additional ceremonies such as the reception of the body, the Office of the Dead, and the absolution of the catafalque.

This booklet should be helpful to people writing wills and other instructions, and it includes a 'fill-in-the-blanks' Letter of Wishes which can be used to make one's preferences clear.

It should be helpful to priests talking to the bereaved about what the options are, and especially to those to whom it has fallen to organise a funeral, perhaps in a parish they do not know, perhaps in conjunction with a parish priest who is not particularly knowledgeable about or friendly to the Vetus Ordo.

It is written using British English terminology ('High' for 'Solemn' Mass etc.), gives the current rates for Mass stipends in England and Wales, and the references to 'Powers of Attorney' and the like relate to English law. With these caveats the booklet is nevertheless, in all essentials, usable all over the world.

You can download the pdf for free here; you can order nicely printed copies for £2 each in the UK and £3 overseas, here. (For bulk orders please contact the LMS Office.)
