77 GRACES DERIVED FROM PARTICIPATION AT THE MASS OF ALL AGES


    And if it is not within thy power to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass said for thy departed friends, thou canst by devout assistance at the Holy Sacrifice release them from the tormenting flames of Purgatory.
This is the seventy-seventh of 77 Graces derived from participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the Mass of All Ages - the Latin Mass of the Roman Rite which was decreed to be said "in perpetuity" by Pope Saint Pius V in codifying the infallible decrees of the dogmatic Council of Trent. These graces are taken from Father Martin von Cochem's Explanation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with an imprimatur by New York's Archbishop Michael Augustin on June 24, 1818 during the Pontificate of Pope Pius VII.
