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.’

Five young Roman Catholics joined the 50 other young Traditional Catholics from the UK for the Chartres Pilgrimage - 75 miles - and the weather was hot (30 degrees - 86 Farenheit). Approximately 8000 young Traditional Catholics from around the world walk this Pilgrimage each year!

Patron Saint of Students

For the students undertaking exams:

Saint Joesph of Copertino (1603 - 1663) was a Francescan friar. Invoked by students as Patron because, with the help of the Lord and Our Lady, he overcame the may difficulties be faced in his studies.


The Lord enriched him with qualities such as wisdom, prophecy and levitation, the reason for which his was known as the 'The Flying Saint'.


His body is kept in Osimo (Ancona) in the splendid sanctuary dedicated to him.


Prayer


Saint Joseph of Copertino, patron saint of students, saint of joy, master of prayer, enchanted by the gospel and the Eucharist, accept my prayer with kindness.


You who have always faced the difficulties of life, without ever straying from the divine will, which you returned with faith and constant commitment; now understand the special state of mind in which I find myself and intercede via Our Lord so that he may grant the grace I so need... let me feel the divine presence and help me to follow, with your example, in his will.


Trusting in your protection, I renew with much faith my intention of gratitude and goodwill and I confide in your support


In Christ our Lord. Amen


Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria

Lesser Known Roman Rubrics: The Sanctus Candle

An example of a Sanctus Candle being lit during a Low Mass - Copyright Dr Shaw LMS Chairman
On Saturday 05 May 2012, Father Redman (St Dominic's - Dursley) celebrated Low Mass and during the consecration a third candle was lit by the Server (David Aron). This third candle, known as the Sanctus Candle, is placed on the Epistle (right) side of the altar.

According to the rubric of the missal, the Sanctus Candle may be lit from the consecration to the communion, however, this is no longer extensively observed.  This old and beautiful practice of the Sanctus Candle draws attention to our Lord's Real Presence on the Altar during that portion of the Holy Mass.

May Holy Mass and Juventutem Social Report


'When Mass is being celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels who adore the divine victim immolated on the altar' St. John Chrysostom

Juventutem Bristol are grateful to Fr Thomas for celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Fr Goodman for hearing Confessions in the Traditional Rite and for Fr Redman assisting at the Holy Mass on Wednesday 02 May 12.

Please keep these Priests in your prayers. St John Mary Vianney said:

'If we had not the Sacrament of Orders, we should not have Our Lord. Who placed Him there, in that tabernacle? It was the priest. Who was it that received your soul, on its entrance into life? The priest. Who nourishes it, to give it strength to make its pilgrimage? The priest. Who will prepare it to appear before God, by washing that soul, for the last time, in the blood of Jesus Christ? The priest -- always the priest. And if that soul comes to the point of death, who will raise it up, who will restore it to calmness and peace? Again the priest. You cannot recall one single blessing from God without finding, side by side with this recollection, the image of the priest'.

Thank you very much for those that came along to the Mass and to the Juventutem Social to meet other young Catholics. Looking forward to the next one!!

SPUC Pro-Life Vigil Bristol - Thank You



THANK YOU to everyone that attended the SPUC kerbside vigils against abortion on Saturday 28 Apr 12 to bear witness to the sanctity of life and for those who prayed at home!

Let us continue to keep in our prayers the women that carry the pain and sorrow of having an abortion and that Our Lady may comfort them; and for the conversion of heart for those who agree with abortion. Mater Dei, ora pro nobis!


St Francis of Assisi said 'remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received - only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.'

SPUC Pro-Life Vigil Bristol

There will be a silent witness in Bristol as part of SPUC’s Kerbside Vigils on Saturday 28 April 2012 at the Hippodrome between 11.00am – 1.00pm. This is to give silent witness to unborn babies killed in the 44 years since the implementation of the Abortion Act, as well as to the hurt caused to women by abortion.

It is important that we attend the silent witness and defend the unborn! We need to show that life is sacred. Please show your support by attending. There will be a counter-protest so we need as many pro-lifers to attend.


If you cannot attend then please pray especially the Holy Rosary and if you have time the Litany of the BVM at home or wherever!


The most effective weapon against abortion is prayer and particularly the ROSARY. It can save lives and convert people. Pope Leo XIII said ‘it is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessing.’ It ONLY takes about 20 minutes to pray the Holy Rosary.

Juventutem Bristol April 2012 Match Report




Juventutem Bristol are grateful to Fr Redman for celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and for Fr Goodman for hearing Confessions in the Traditional Rite.

Please keep these Priests in your prayers. St John Mary Vianney said:


'Without the priest, the passion and death of our Lord would be of no avail. It is the priest who continues the work of redemption on earth. ... What use would be a house filled with gold, were there no one to open its door? The priest holds the key to the treasures of heaven: it is he who opens the door: he is the steward of the good Lord; the administrator of His goods. ... Leave a parish for twenty years without a priest, and they will end by worshipping the beasts there. ... The priest is not a priest for himself, he is a priest for you.'

Thank you for those that came along to the Mass and to the Juventutem Social to meet other young Catholics.

Next Mass

Low Mass: Wednesday 02 May 2012 at 6.30pm at Holy Cross, Dean Lane, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 1DB and then followed by a Juventutem Social.

Masses open to all

Socials are reserved to those aged 18 - 35

Pro-Life Vigil London Fri 30 Mar 12


Juventutem London and Juventutem Bristol attended the Latin Mass at the Oratory and then joined the hundreds of peaceful Pro-Lifers at the Prayer Vigil at Bedford Square on Fri 30 Mar 12, lead by Bishop Hope. We prayed the Holy Rosary and meditated on the Stations of the Cross for the end of abortion.

Bishop Hope had the strength and conviction to publicly criticise abortion. So, please keep Bishop Hope in our prayers for upholding the sacred truths which the Catholic Church believes and teaches: ‘Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception’ CCC2270.
