FAQ 02: "How Do I Submit a Mass Intention?" Updated - 06/23/22
The practice of having a priest to offer Holy Mass for a specific intention is a devotional work that has existed in the Church for centuries. Even many traditional Catholics either do not understand the value of having Masses offered or else they do not care about this important Spiritual Work of Mercy. They fail to take advantage of the opportunity of having the ministerial fruits of the Mass applied for some spiritual need: the welfare of a loved one, the repose of a soul, in thanksgiving for favors received,
etc. For further information, click on FAQ02: How Do I Submit a Mass Intention in the TRADITIO Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).
Traditional Latin Stations of the Cross - 06/23/22
Our Useful Latin Prayers (Orationes Latinae Utiles) file includes, among a multitude of other Latin prayers, many with English translations, the Exercitium Viae Crucis (Devotion of the Way of the Cross), which is very popular devotion for the Lenten season. This version of the traditional Fourteen Stations of the Cross comes from the Manual of St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori (1969-1787), of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and consists of the traditional prayers for each Station, together with a meditation on each Station written by the Saint.
