Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Mass on All Souls' Day

So, last year on All Souls' Day I was in Rome, which was great, but I regretted not being able to attend the annual All Souls' Day High Mass at St. Agnes here in St. Paul - with Mozart's Requiem Mass in full and living color, with not only the customary St. Agnes reverence and zeal for the proper celebration of the Eucharist, but also the inspirational assistance of an orchestra and choir that knows what they are doing, and that they are doing it for love of God.

It's one of the days of the year I look forward to the most!

But this year I believe I've been enticed away from attending St. Agnes (and from having to arrive at 6:00 to get a seat for a 7:30pm Mass!)...

You see, there's going to be a very special Mass at the Cathedral in St. Paul at 7pm on All Souls' Day. At the Sacred Heart chapel. Viene uno, viene tutti!
