October: Month of the Holy Rosary

The hours I spent with Thee, Dear Heart!
Are as a string of pearls to Thee,
I count them over, every one apart,
My rosary, my rosary.

Each hour a pearl, each pearl a prayer,
To still a heart in absence wrung,
I tell each bead unto the end,
And there a cross is hung.

Oh, memories that bless and burn,
Oh, barren gain and bitter loss,
I kiss each bead and strive at last to learn,
To kiss the cross, Sweet Heart,
To kiss the cross.

St. Michael the archangel, defend us in battle!
September 29 - Michaelmas (Feast of St. Michael)

"You should be aware that the word 'angel' denotes a function rather than a nature. Those holy spirits of heaven have always been spirits, but they can only be called angels when they deliver some message.

Those who deliver messages of lesser importance are called angels, while those who proclaim messages of supreme importance are called archangels."
--St. Gregory the Great

Starts Today! The FSSP is starting a novena to St. Joseph in light of the Traditiones Custodes Moto propio (maybe add at the end of your daily rosary?):

In light of the Traditiones Custodes Motu proprio, we ask that you join the Fraternity of St. Peter in praying the following novena from the 22nd (Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) to the 30th of August for the intention of the Holy Father, the FSSP community and apostolates, and more generally for all those attached to the "Extraordinary Form":

Prayer to Saint Joseph:

Unto thee, O Blessed Joseph, do we fly in our tribulation and, having implored the help of thy most holy Spouse, we now confidently seek thy protection.

By that charity which united thee to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by thy fatherly love for the Child Jesus, we humbly beg thee to look graciously upon the inheritance which Jesus Christ hath purchased with His Blood, and in our need to help us by thy powerful intercession.

Do thou, O prudent guardian of the Holy Family, watch over the chosen people of Jesus Christ. Keep us, O most loving father, from all blight of error and corruption. O most mighty protector, from thy place in Heaven, graciously help us in this our conflict with the powers of darkness.

And as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from the supreme peril of His life, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity.

Extend to each one of us thy continual protection, that led on by thine example, and strengthened by thine aid, we may lead a holy life, and die in holiness, and obtain everlasting happiness in Heaven. Amen.

FSSP Response to "Traditionis Custodes":

With the publication of Pope Francis’ latest motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes, which has placed new restrictions on the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, many of us are disheartened and anxious. At this point, it is too early to tell what all the implications will be for the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, but we assure you that we remain committed to serving the faithful attending our apostolates in accordance with our Constitutions and charism as we have done since our founding.

We must strive to see this Cross as a means of our sanctification, and to remember that God will never abandon His Church. Our Lord Himself promises us the necessary graces to bear our Crosses with strength and courage. We must not, however, neglect to do our part as faithful Catholics; let us pray and offer sacrifices in our daily lives, and trust in the intercession of Our Lady, St. Joseph, and our patron, St. Peter.

Our Story

Mater Dei Catholic Parish, established in 2009 and founded as a parish on Easter Sunday 2010, is served by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) with the approval and blessing of the Most Reverend Edward J. Burns, Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas.

All Masses and Sacraments are performed in the Latin usus antiquior of the Roman Rite, in accordance with the Missal of Blessed John XXIII published in 1962, as expressed in the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of His Holiness ,Pope Benedict XVI.

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, that is, a community of Roman Catholic priests who do not take religious vows, but who work together for a common mission in the world. The mission of the Fraternity is two-fold: first, the formation and sanctification of priests in the cadre of the traditional liturgy of the Roman rite, and secondly, the pastoral deployment of the priests in the service of the Church.
