Remnant Petitions

The 2nd Annual St. Joseph’s Lenten Pilgrimage in Lacombe, La, was a great success, and proves that the Latin Mass in the region of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, north of Lake Pontchartrain, is thriving. 

More than 50 people (14 of them under the age of 12) kicked off the Lenten season with a nearly 10 mile trek from the Mandeville Trace to Sacred Heart in Lacombe. There was a men’s brigade and a women’s brigade.

Our chaplain, Fr. Jambon, walked between the brigades, hearing confession and giving spiritual counsel. At the conclusion of the pilgrimage, Fr. Jambon offered Benediction, confessions, and a presentation and blessing of a relic of Our Lady’s veil. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful way to start this penitential season.

At 6:00 PM Rome time this evening (March 7, 2015), Pope Francis celebrated a special Mass of commemoration of the first vernacular Mass of Pope Paul VI.

The celebration took place at the Church of All Saints, Via Appia Nuova--the very same church where, fifty years ago today, Pope Paul VI offered a prototype of the New Mass in the vernacular.


In his homily, Pope Francis recalled the Gospel account of the cleansing of the temple, and Jesus’ famous remark, “Do not make My Father’s house a marketplace!”

"This expression, according to Francis as reported by Vatican Radio, did not just refer to those doing business in the temple; it refers to a certain type of religiosity. Jesus’ gesture is one of 'cleansing, of purification.'
