The spring 2017 edition is now available. Leading articles feature Buckfast Abbey, The Old Mass and Children, a round-up of an extraordinary Christmas for the Traditional Mass and Gregory Hogan reports on plans to open a new Catholic academy in the Diocese of Portsmouth. These, together with the usual features, a wealth of news, reviews and reports all show how love of the Traditional Mass is growing around the country.
As Buckfast Abbey is preparing to celebrate a thousand years of monasticism on the site, Maurice Quinn, (LMS Local Representative for Devon) looks at its history and current work.
Also in this issue of Mass of Ages, Peter Clarke, LMS Local Representative for the Isle of Wight, reports on a very successful Day of Recollection held at St Mary’s Ryde in early January.
Paul Waddington visits a landmark on the Wirral – the 1930s Shrine Church of SS Peter & Paul and St Philomena and Alberto Carosa reports on the Holy Father’s recent visit to Sweden.
Our regular columnists:
• Lone Veiler looks at science fiction
• Caroline Shaw provides a meditation on the Mass in her reflection on the Ghent Masterpiece
• Mary O’Regan reflects on marriage
• Fr Bede Row asks, “Do we still believe in theologians?”
All this, and much more, shows that Traditional Catholicism is alive, growing and enjoyed by more and more people throughout England and Wales.
Thanks to the cooperation of priests in whose parishes the Traditional Mass is celebrated, Mass of Ages is available from more than ninety cathedrals and churches around the country. Copies are available at Holywell, Buckley, Llay and Wrexham Cathedral in this diocese.
If you do not live near one of these but would like a copy of the magazine, we would be very happy to send one from the the main LMS office at 11-13 Macklin St, London, WC2B 5NH. However, due to the high cost of postage, we do ask that you cover the cost of postage.
