HOLYROOD MARKET RASEN EXTRAORDINARY FORM LATIN MASS OF THE HOLY CROSS
FRIDAY 24TH OCTOBER, 7PM .
IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT WE CAN ANNOUNCE THAT THERE WILL BE BENEDICTION & A VOTIVE LOW LATIN MASS CELEBRATED AT HOLYROOD CATHOLIC CHURCH MARKET RASEN.
THERE WILL BE A TOTAL OF FOUR LATIN MASSES CELEBRATED AT MARKET RASEN OVER THE FOLLOWING YEAR. BEING A FRIDAY, AND A MASS OF THE HOLY CROSS, THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED SIXHILLS CHASUBLE WILL BE USED WITH ITS ORIGINAL MEDIEVAL PANELS. NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT THIS PARTICULAR MASS HAS BEEN CHOSEN TO HIGHLIGHT THE PATRONAL NAME OF HOLYROOD.
Richard Collins the author of the Linen on the Hedgerow, as you are probably already aware as sadly passed away.
Like others, I think he was an wonderful man.
Anyone who has read his blog can testify that he was devout, loyal to the Church and Her teachings, he was a defender of the One True Faith, and he had a great sense of humour (even with the knowledge that we are knee-deep in a crisis in the Church today). He certainly kept me going with a cheery word, and was always ready to answer my questions when organising Latin Masses. He also gave us his heart felt support, with the work we are doing in Lincolnshire, to return the authentic Catholic Faith, in this spiritually barren part of the world.
a final Latin Mass was said at Richard's bedside. He died fortified by all the rites of Holy
and his final moments were accompanied by his family praying the holy Rosary.
Please pray for the repose of his eternal soul and for his family.
Over the past few months there have been moves afoot to significantly highlight the Lincolnshire Martyrs for the first time. Work is on going, but there will be interesting news to follow over the next year.

AN AMAZING REVIVAL OF A CHURCH BY ITS PRIEST BEING EXTREMELY FAITHFUL TO THE CORRECT INTERPRETATION OF VATICAN II.
A new documentary (which is available on DVD) tracks the journey of how a priest, at St Peter Catholic Church, Omaha, and his community, through fidelity to Church tradition and the authentic words of Vatican II, turned a church with dwindling numbers into a thriving parish.
"We're trying to do everything as faithfully as
we can, as beautifully as we can, to what the Church has given us," Father
Damien Cook, pastor of St. Peter Catholic Church in Omaha. St. Peter's is "dedicated to the restoration of
the sacred," he said, with Masses sung with Latin and chant, liturgies
celebrated both facing the people and facing the altar, altar boys, Eucharistic
adoration, evening prayer sung every day, processions, and distribution of
Communion at the altar rail. There is a emphasis on what he terms 'holy distractions'. He has made the church as 'Catholic' as possible so when people come in tired and not concentrating before Mass there are lots of holy points of reference to take their mind away from life's troubles and to centre them on Christ.
"This is what we should do, if we're going to be
a fully faithful church according to Vatican II and the whole tradition of the Church," said
"Where Heaven Meets Earth" is a 30 minute
documentary produced by the StoryTel Foundation, which will be premiered on
EWTN on Tuesday, April 30. A DVD of the documentary is also available (here) for
pre-order at the foundation's website.
“I’ve been amazed to see the progress people have
made over the last few years, and the numbers of people we have had at the
masses through mostly word-of-mouth,” said St. Peter’s pastor Father Damien
Cook. “The congregations have grown and flourished to the point that at one of
our masses the church is completely full with standing room only, which amounts
to over 800 people. For our neighborhood, in our situation, in just six years’
time, this is radical growth.”
THE CALL OF GOD, A DEEP CONVERSION, A VISION LIKE THE 'SUN' AND THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS
Describing her early life as a young wife, one source states "Chaste in morals,
attached to her wifely duties, Anna-Maria yet lived more for the world than for
God”, however, shortly afterward she had a profound conversion. Along with receiving the extraordinary ongoing vision of the sun, Anna Maria began to be drawn into ecstasies. Most often, she was often drawn into ecstasy

The Decree of Beatification & Her Vision:
"Among other gifts the most remarkable was that for a space of forty-seven
years she saw a kind of sun in whose light she……foresaw future events,
scrutinised the secrets of hearts and the most hidden and most inward
impulses." Suddenly, then, in her humble home, Anna saw a little above her
head…..a blazing sun crowned by a circle of thorns; two long thorns clasped it
round; in the centre was the Eternal Wisdom represented by a young woman seated
in contemplation. Films of cloud dimmed the dazzling light, but an interior
voice told her that the clouds would disappear according to the increasing
measure of her purification.
In this light she was to see, until her death, not
only everything that might conduce her to perfection, but also everything that
could help win others for God and allow her to help the Church militant or
In 1863 Blessed Anna Maria Taigi's body was found to be incorrupt
Eighteen years after her death her coffin was opened and her body was found to be incorrupt. The holy incorrupt remains of Blessed
Anna Maria Taigi lie in state in the Chapel of the Madonna in the basilica of
San Chrysogono in Rome. Her Memorial feast day is celebrated in the Church on June 9.
Despite a relatively hard reputation Pope Pius X was in reality an extremely kind man, and Pope, who was born poor and who said that he wanted to "die poor". The video contains a talk concerning Pope Pius X and modernism.
'Moments ago these were frightened men who gathered only behind locked doors, in
secrecy. They were huddled together in fear. But now they go forth to the
crowds and boldly proclaim Christ. They have gone from fear to faith, from
cowardice to courage, from terror to testimony'. THE ONE TRUE CHURCH FOUNDED BY CHRIST IN THE UPPER ROOM AT PENTECOST, 33AD .
