Five-Century-old Vatican Choir to perform in America this weekend for the first time ever!

     On Saturday, the feast of Saint Anthony of Padua, beloved Franciscan and close friend of Saint Francis of Assisi, Mission San Luis Rey will officially celebrate the 200th birthday of the Mission with Bishop Robert H. Brom of San Diego celebrating a glorious Mass that will mark a first in American and Vatican annals:the Capella Giulia, known as the Vatican Choir, founded in 1513 by Pope Julius II, will perform for the first time ever on American soil; in fact the first time ever in 485 years that the Choir has sung outside of Europe! Directed by Vatican Choir Master Monsignor Pablo Colino they plan to make beautiful music in the "New World." For the story of this historic first, click on the editorial titled It's a unanimous thumbs up for the Vatican Choir! in this weekend's CATHOLIC PewPOINT

It's a unanimous thumbs up for the Vatican Choir!

Mission's history rich in tradition and the faith!

     There is a reason the majestic San Luis Rey mission near the Pacific Coast in Southern California is considered the "King of the Missions" after King Saint Louis IX has been so fruitful over 200 years through the tireless efforts of the Franciscans and other religious orders.

Historical Events in the Annals of the Mission:

If we deny Jesus' True Presence in the Holy Eucharist in this life, He could very well deny us in the next!

     In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto, strongly reminds all of the great gift Jesus has given us: Himself in the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Most Blessed Sacrament. For anyone to doubt this august mystery and to consider the Holy Eucharist only a symbol is to deny love, and to deny Christ. If we deny Him now, He could very well deny us later!
