Join us for Mass Sunday 12:30 pm. Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, 509 21st Street, West Palm Beach. The beginning of a new liturgical year. December 16th is the third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday).
Rejoice in the Lord always: again I say, rejoice. Let your modesty be known to all men: for the Lord is nigh. Be nothing solicitous: but in every thing by prayer let your petitions be made known to God. Ps. Lord, Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. Glory be to the Father.
Introit (Philippians iv. 4–6), Third Sunday of Advent (16 December 2018).

Why The Traditional Mass?
Let all things be done for edification. Saint Paul, 1 Cor 14:26.
The prayers and practices of the traditional Mass constitute the most faithful liturgical expression that we have of the truth and the right reverent and humble disposition of man seeking to approach God at the Sacrifice of the Mass. The practices of the traditional liturgy express and teach the truth coherently and reliably.
The key idea is what the forms of the new and old liturgies actually teach. Because you are learning what you practice. And you are teaching by your practice, your actions, your example. To consider some important issues inherent in liturgical practice—what we profess, what we teach, and what we learn with and through our actions at Mass—consider these observations from Bishop Schneider: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Read also this article from One Peter Five. Read also the excellent little book, Dominus Est, by Bishop Schneider, debunking the false 1960s-era academic rationalizations for the abusive practice of Communion in the hand.
