Sunday Bulletin 2 Jan 2022


Frs de Malleray, Verrier, Stewart and Deacon Evans, with Fr Jolly, thank you for your many cards, gifts and prayers for us over the past Christmas. We wish you a blessed new civil year.

Pray for the Safeguarding of Roman traditions

Following the further restrictions announced by the Holy See last week, let us pray with deep faith, hope and charity for the traditional Roman liturgy to be preserved as a providential means of sanctification of souls.

This includes the welfare of the priestly and religious communities that offer it, in particular the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter whose Constitutions were definitively approved by the Holy See (cf https://www.fssp.org/en/decree-of-the-ecclesia-dei-commission-on-the-liturgical-books-of-1962/) and praised by Pope Francis through his papal nuncio on our 25th anniversary:

The Holy Father exhorts them, according to their own charism, to take an active part in the mission of the Church in the world of today, through the testimony of a holy life, a firm faith and an inventive and generous charity.

[emphases ours] (cf https://www.fssp.org/en/blessing-of-pope-francis-on-the-occasion-of-the-25th-anniversary-of-the-fssp/).

Read further on the reasons why traditional communities established by the Holy See deserve to be supported in their identity: https://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2021/12/important-declaration-of-superior-of.html.

We will offer Holy Mass monthly to this intention, starting on 9th January.

May the special patrons of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter intercede for us as they have done in the past: the Blessed Virgin Mary, St Peter the Apostle and St Thomas Aquinas.

Congratulations to John and FionaWestcombe onthe Baptism of their firstbornchild Alice last 21st December. John and Fiona moved near Warrington a few months ago to be part of St Mary’s Shrine.

New Year: two separate Plenary Indulgences applicable to oneself or to a holy soul in Purgatory can be gained by praying or singing in church: 1)The hymn Te Deum (Baronius p. 96) on 31st December in thanksgiving for the year past; 2) The hymn Veni Creator (Baronius p. 712) asking graces for the year starting.

In addition to performing the work (praying one of the two hymns above), the three usual conditions apply: 1) to be in the state of grace with no attachment to sin even venial, 2) reception of Holy Communion the same day, 3) to pray for the intentions of the Sovereign Pontiff. Please note that what is meant here is not the periodical intentions of the reigning pope published by the Holy See which one is welcome to pray at any time. For an indulgence, “intentions of the Sovereign Pontiff” means: the spiritual good of the whole Church, encompassing: the liberty and exaltation of the Catholic Church and the Apostolic See, the extirpation of heresies and the conversion of all who are in error, the concord of Christian Princes and the peace and unity of all the faithful.

Blessing of Epiphany Water on Wed 5th Jan: bring and drop by little organ before the 12:10pm Mass plastic containers filled with water and labelled to your name (to take home after) for the Blessing to begin right after 12:10pm Mass: lasting about from 1pm to 2pm.

English Conversation Classes: in a relaxed setting for an hour over a cup of tea, coffee and snack. Individuals, couples and families, all welcome. Introductory session on Tuesday 18th January after the 12:10pm Mass in Priory Court Unit 1.
