Juventutem Bristol: Holy Mass & Social - Wednesday 2 January 2013

'Renew your faith by attending Holy Mass. Keep your mind focused on the mystery that is unfolding before your eyes. In your mind's eye transport yourself to Calvary and meditate on the Victim who offers Himself to Divine Justice, paying the price of your redemption.' St Padre Pio

Juventutem Bristol - December 2012 Report

The Altar at Holy Cross on Wednesday 5 December 2012

Juventutem Bristol would like to give a warm thank you to Father Coulon (Parish Priest Devizes) for celebrating a Missa Cantata and for Fr Goodman for hearing Confessions, on Wednesday 5 December 2012. We are also grateful to the servers and the Choir (lead by David Bates) for their great efforts.

It is nice to see that the Juventutem Bristol Schola is growing with more members. Juventutem Bristol would like to thank the benefactor for supporting this month's Sung Mass. Also,if you would like to join the schola, please contact Juventutem Bristol for more information.

Please keep the Priests that celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass in your prayers. St John Mary Vianney said:

‘If I were to meet a priest and an angel, I should salute the priest before I saluted the angel. The latter is the friend of God; but the priest holds His place. St. Teresa kissed the ground where a priest had passed. When you see a priest, you should say, “There is he who made me a child of God, and opened Heaven to me by holy Baptism; he who purified me after I had sinned; who gives nourishment to my soul. ” At the sight of a church tower, you may say, “What is there in that place?” “The Body of Our Lord. ” “Why is He there?” “Because a priest has been there, and has said Holy Mass.’
