June 15, 2020
When we began the Year of Our Lord 2020, few of us could have expected what was to come.
A pandemic devastated Wuhan province in China, ravaged northern Italy, and finally arrived in North America. From that moment, the economy started to unravel–whole sectors of work shut down and millions were laid off. We saw shortages in our grocery stores, and long lines at food banks. Then, just as the threat started subsiding, we had waves of protests, social unrest, and rioting in our cities.
Through all of this we instinctively turned to Almighty God for solace–though our churches, our islands of sanity in a world gone mad, were forced to close over our objections.
It’s obvious, now, what the world sees as essential….but what do we see as essential?
How much do we spend on luxuries and entertainment? Cable channels? Patreons? Even those of us who are careful about what we support…do we give to Catholic organizations and channels simply so our ears can be tickled with the latest church gossip? Are we actually helping to advance the kingdom of God? Are we training priests, saving souls, and building missions? Or are we just building up “Traditionalism, Inc.”?
In two weeks, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter will be launching our Ss. Peter and Paul Appeal. This year has been a hard one for all of us. But our priests have emerged more determined than ever.
Our mission is simple. To train traditional priests and provide the traditional sacraments. We hear from people all the time that they need a Fraternity priest and the Latin Mass in their area. And we would love to meet that need. But it can’t happen without funding, hard work, and years of preparation.
Most everything is in ugly disarray now–but we know that in the Church’s timeless liturgy there is beauty and stability.
Christ was hidden from us for three long months. Are you ready to make up for lost time?
We believe the Latin Mass is essential. We believe the Latin Mass can heal the sickness in our souls, and mend the deep divisions in society. Do you?
So please support the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in honor of our great patron, and help our priests bring the saving light of Christ into the deepening darkness of this world.
May God richly bless you for your generosity.
