On Sunday, the twenty-ninth of June, the glorious feast of Saints Peter and Paul in the year of Our Lord two thousand fourteen, the Reverend Father Peter David Van Lieshout will offer to the Triune Majesty of God a Solemn High Mass of Thanksgiving in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at Saint Stanislaus Kostka Church on Hudson Avenue in Rochester, New York at one-thirty in the aternoon.

It is true that there have been exaggerations and at times social aspects unduly linked to the attitude of the faithful attached to the ancient Latin liturgical tradition.

For that matter, the two Forms of the usage of the Roman Rite can be mutually enriching.

There is no contradiction between the two editions of the Roman Missal.

It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church’s faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place.

    I meant to write sooner … Fr. Van Lieshout celebrated a magnificent Solemn High EF Mass last Sunday at St. Stanislaus! His sermon was also beautiful, linking the Remus and Romulus mythology in the founding of Rome to the blood of the heroic brothers in the Christian Faith, Peter and Paul, to the extraordinary destiny of Rome as foretold in the mythology. And, we were delighted to learn at the end of Mass that Pope Francis had approved a plenary indulgence for those who attended (under the usual conditions of course). Anyone who attended must have been very happy to have been there. I know that I was.

    I did not assist at this particular Holy Mass of which Diane writes. However, my beloved and I had the opportunity to meet and speak with the newly ordained Father Van Lieshout after Mass at Saint Thomas the Apostle on St. Paul Blvd.

    Father Peter speaks fluent Italian. How gracious, hospitable and generous with his time.

    God bless Father Peter Van Lieshout.
