Next Mass, Restoration Progress

posted Mar 24, 2019, 7:23 PM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri
Our next Traditional Holy Mass is set for 4:00 PM, Laetare Sunday, March 31st at St. Rose of Lima in Novinger. The Holy Rosary will be prayed 20 minutes before Mass and a reception will follow. Please be with us!

Intricate restoration work continues on the Communion gate for the Communion rail of historic St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger. An LMS member who supplied these pictures said, “I was impressed that they carved out a piece of wood (circled in the photo) with a Dremel and glued it on.” For those of us impatient for this project to be complete, recall the classic film 'The AGONY & The ECSTASY,' in which an impatient Pope asks Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel ceiling. After a while, the frustrated Pope Julius II asks, “When will you make an end (of it)?” Michelangelo answers, “When I am finished?”
