Latin Mass

It is one of the deep joys of Catholicism and one we have been able to partake of, as a parish devoted to it is in Sacramento, St. Stephen The First Martyr Parish, served by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, and its North American District, an order that was given Vatican approval 20 years ago to offer the Latin Mass exclusively.

It is also one looking more attractive by the day as the Church changes its missal again, while the one used by St. Stephen is the Missal of the Tridentine Rite, which has not changed at least since 1962 when this Baronius Press edition was published.

There is something to be said for constancy.
