Note: As these pages load, we invite you to say as many Hail Mary's as necessary. You can click on the Rosary button to the left as well to see the Rosary Prayers in English, Latin and Spanish. We pray you will be imbued by the truths of the authentic Catholic Faith we provide here and yearn to learn more of the infrangible truths of the One and only Church founded by Jesus Christ.

Below you will find the Daily Propers for each Mass from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday in our Lenten Daily Propers. For our Lenten edition we are concentrating on the spiritual/devotional aspects in providing all you will need to help you make a better Lent. Therefore, we are suspending all new features throughout Lent but urge you, when you have completed your Lenten devotions each day, to research archived pages on The DailyCatholic.

   We want to thank those who have contributed to helping keep The DailyCatholic on line. We are a few hundred dollars short of the absolute minimum we needed to reach by the first part of February, but grace periods by our creditors have allowed us to at least stay on line through Lent. We remind all that one of the exercises for Lent is Almsgiving and pray you will do your part by clicking on the Donation Button in the right hand corner below the masthead of this Lenten edition. Whatever you can send will be most appreciated. May we all have a blessed, fruitful and grace-filled Lent as penance and reparation become the focus of this holy penitential season. Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.

Michael Cain, editor, The DailyCatholic


   Everyone over 21 and 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast. The days of fast are all the days in Lent, all days of partial abstinence except Sundays. On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength may be taken according to each one's need, but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on days of complete abstinence. Eating between meals is not permitted but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, consult your parish priest or confessor.
    (Adopted by the heirarchy of the United States, November 1958)

       
  Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Complete abstinence is to be observed on Fridays, Ash Wednesday, Holy Saturday and the Vigils of the Immaculate Conception (December 7) and Christmas (December 24). On days of complete abstinence, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays and the vigil of Pentecost (Saturday before). On days of partial abstinence, (which are all the days of Lent) which are not complete abstinence days or Sundays, meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal.



    Click on the Confessional to your right to review your transgressions through a thorough Examination of Conscience to make a good Confession during Lent


                

    Thanks to Traditional Catholic Sermons, we're able to bring you a virtual mini-retreat conducted by His Excellency Bishop Daniel Dolan. Since most of our readers do not have the opportunity of a traditional retreat during Lent or even a day of Recollection, we wanted to provide the next best thing. In fact, on these pages you have all the tools necessary to make a fruitful retreat except for the Sacraments themselves. But you can make an examination of conscience, pray the Rosary, follow the Ordinary and Propers of each Mass and say the Stations of the Cross during this Passion Week when our efforts intensify as we turn down the stretch toward Holy Week. Just click on the buttons below to go to each meditative talk.

In order to provide a full spiritual complement to each day during key days in the holy season of Lent we have included, when available, Reflections from The Liturgical Year by the venerable Abbe Dom Prosper Gueranger. On each Sunday up to Palm Sunday we have also provided from John Gregory the Haydock Commentary for the Epistle and Gospel as compiled by Fr. Leo George Haydock for the Douay-Rheims Bible. In addition, we've endeavored to enhance each day with a link to live streaming Masses available from Bishop Daniel Dolan with Holy Mass from St. Gertrude the Great for 11:25 a.m. Daily Mass in the Eastern Time Zone and Sunday Mass at 9 a.m. EST. For the Pacific Time Zone there's Holy Mass from Our Lady of Guadalupe for 8 a.m. Daily Masses, 6 p.m. on Fridays with Rosary every Wednesday evening at 7 offered by Fr. Kevin Vaillancourt. While it's true one must be physically present in church to receive the full graces, there are Spiritual Benefits derived from web-cam live streaming Masses. We provide these links in our effort to provide daily substance in all spiritual phases of Traditional Catholic living so readers can KNOW the Faith in order to KEEP the Faith.

The Essence of our Existence


Nos autem - Part Five

Meditation

Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Hoc est enim Corpus Meum
"My Lord and my God"

Hic est enim Calix Sanguinis Mei, Novi et Aeterni Testamenti; Mysterium Fidei; Qui pro vobis et pro multis effundetur in remissionem peccatorum

"Dominus meus
et Deus meus"

The Washing of the Feet

The Stripping of the Altars

Vespers for Maundy Thursday

Indulgences for Maundy Thursday

We commence watching with Him in being present throughout the night and next morning with Him in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar reposed on the side altar. It is our way of standing with our Lord and Savior during these most ignominious times when He is mocked, blasphemed, scourged, crowned with thorns and judged.
