Happy Thanksgiving

O GOD, of Whose mercies there is no number, and of Whose goodness the treasure is infinite; we render thanks to Thy most gracious Majesty for the gifts Thou hast bestowed upon us, evermore beseeching Thy clemency, that as Thou grantest the petitions of them that ask Thee, Thou wilt never forsake them, but wilt prepare them for the reward to come.  Through our Lord. Collect.  Mass of Thanksgiving.

Report: Historic Pontifical Mass in Honor of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria

On Sunday, 20 October 2013, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 Traditional Latin Mass Guild hosted a Pontifical Low Mass in honor of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria at St. Titus Church in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

The celebrant was Don Teodoro de Faria, Bishop Emeritus of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal.  Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, FSSP, and Fr. James W. Dolan served as Pontifical Low Mass Chaplains.

This was the first Pontifical Traditional Latin Mass celebrated at St. Titus Church in over forty-five years.

After Mass, the faithful were able to venerate a relic of Blessed Karl.

Following Mass and veneration of the relic, there was a luncheon and conference in the church hall.

Speakers included Ricardo Dumont dos Santos, Portugal Delegate of the Emperor Karl League of Prayers, and Br. Nathan Cochran, OSB, United States/Canada Delegate of the Emperor Karl League of Prayers.  They spoke about the life of Bl. Karl and answered questions regarding his cause for canonization.

This Pontifical Mass and conference were part of a series of Masses and conferences in honor of Blessed Karl held in the Northeast, and sponsored by the following Traditional Knights of Columbus Councils:

Regina Coeli Council 423, Manhattan, NY
Potomac Council 433, Washington, DC
