High Mass Sunday 12:30 pm. Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, 509 21st Street, West Palm Beach. The sacrament of Penance is available as of 11:45 am.
From Sunday 17 February to Ash Wednesday, we are in the season of Septuagesima.
After the fervent welcome given to our Lord by reason of 'the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus' the Church suddenly confronts us with the gloomy depths of the fall of man. As in the Christmas cycle, she takes up once more the study of the Old Testament to show us all the great figures who heralded the redemptive work of Christ and whose history, symbolical of our Lord's, is well calculated to prepare us for the great feast of Easter when we shall celebrate His triumph.
This liturgical period is a prelude to Lent and a remote preparation for Easter. It serves as a time of transition for the soul, which must pass from Christmas joys to the stern penance of the sacred forty days.

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.
