Sunday 27 January is the third Sunday after Epiphany. Join us for Mass 12:30 pm. Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, 509 21st Street, West Palm Beach. Thanks to the newly-formed choir and those who have generously stepped forward to serve at the altar, usually the Sunday Mass will be a High (Sung) Mass. See this short video for guidance on the order of standing, sitting, and kneeling at the Mass.
The Sacrament of Penance is available Sundays as of 11:45 am.
Almighty and eternal God, mercifully look upon our infirmity, and stretch forth the right hand of Thy majesty to help and defend us. Through our Lord.
Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, infirmitátem nostram propítius réspice: atque ad protegéndum nos, déxteram tuæ majestátis exténde. Per Dóminum nostrum.
Collect, Third Sunday after Epiphany.
The third, fourth, fifth, and sixth Sundays after Epiphany have the same Introit, Gradual, Offertory and Communion which testify to our Lord's divinity, to the fact that He worked miracles, and to the worship which we owe Him. In fact, throughout this time after Epiphany, the Church does not cease to manifest our Lord's divinity and therefore His kingship over men. Saint Andrew Daily Missal

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.
