"Qui legit, intelligat"

We are pleased to be able to bring you weekly sermons by Father Louis J. Campbell to assist Traditionalists in their spiritual journey. Above are the sermons for this month available thus far. The title for these Sunday Sermons is taken from Our Lord's most revealing and pertinent words in Matthew 24: vs. 15, "he that readeth, let him understand" - words that have much more significance in these times of grave crisis. Father Louis provides the nourishment from the Gospels so that we can all understand more clearly and respond to God's Holy Will. For past sermons, see Archives of Father's Sermons

When you can't attend the Holy Sacrifice
There are many who, realizing the Novus Ordo is not the fullness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, cannot attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as it was always meant to be said. Therefore, we have gleaned from The Key of Heaven prayers to say at home. It is very comforting to know that the Holy Mass is offered for us even when we are not actually present. But to enjoy the benefits which it procures, we must by a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION become partakers of the altar from which we are temporarily banished. We add here that these prayers never fulfill fully our obligation and privilege to assist at Holy Mass, but serve as a necessary alternative during these times when the eternal sacrifice is being eliminated everywhere. Here we provide prayers in preparation for fulfilling assistance in absentia.
