Welcome to the Catholic Mass website!

Dear Readers:

This web page is Our Welcome to all Readers, especially to Catholics.

Unfortunately, most Readers have never had an opportunity to learn what has really has been happening in the Roman Catholic Church!  Many people, especially Catholics, have been misled with various errors and, in some cases, propaganda, as in the example of the false claim that God IS NOT in the punishment business, despite the Ten Commandments which are to be found in the Bible.

Please consider how Christ teaches all of us: If you love Me, keep My Commandments (John 14:15).  To keep My Commandments simply means to obeyMy Commandments.

What happens if a person does not obeyMy Commandments?   The Old Testament provides examples of the Wrath of God upon those who did not obey His Commandments!  Even though today is the time of the New and Eternal Testament, the Ten Commandments are still in effect.  Since this web site primarily concerns the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of the Catholic Church, for your convience, here is some brief data regarding the Mass within the context of the Third Commandment of God:

Q. What is the third Commandment?
A. The third Commandment is: Remember to Keep Holy the Sabbath Day.

Q. What are we commanded by the third Commandment?
A. By the third Commandment we are commanded to keep Holy the Lord's day and the Holydays of Obligation, on which we are to give our time to the service and acts of worship of God,

Q. How are we to worship God on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation?
A. We are to worship God on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation by reverently attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by which everyone can more perfectly offer to God, in union with the Mass Celebrant, their own acts of adoration, atonement, petition, and thanksgiving which are purified by the Infinite power and Graces of the Sacrifice of the Mass as shown in the graphic found below.  Outside of the Mass, such acts are only very imperfect and very finite in value.

The following 17 reasons should provide more than a sufficient motivation to all Catholics concerning their requirement to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on all Sundays and Holy Days of Oblilgation under the pain of Mortal Sin.


Every VALID Holy Sacrifice of the
Catholic Traditional Mass you devoutly attend:

1. Fulfills your Sacred SUNDAY duty and responsibility to your Infinite Creator, Almighty God, by uniting yourself with the Mass Celebrant who, as your Mediator with God, Offers to God an Infinite SACRIFICE of:

1) Adoration/Worship;  2) Thanksgiving;  3) Petition;  4) Propitiation/Reparation for your actual sins.
2. Renders the greatest gratitude and homage to the Sacred Humanity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, God Incarnate.

3. At the hour of your death, will be your greatest consolation.

4. Will go with you to your Judgment to plead for pardon for you from the Just Judge.

5. Diminishes the temporal punishment due to your sins.

6. Supplies for many of your faults, negligences, and sins of omission.

7. Forgives your Venial Sins you are determined to avoid and for which you are truly sorry.  Forgives your unknown/forgotten sins which you never confessed.

8. Reduces Satan’s power over you.

9. Gives the Suffering Souls in Purgatory the greatest possible relief.

10. Is of more value/benefit to you than 1,000 Masses offered for you after your death.

11 You are preserved from many dangers/misfortunes which otherwise would have befallen you.

12.  Shortens your time in Purgatory by hundreds of earth years.

13. For each Mass, God will send one Holy Saint, and one Holy Angel, to comfort you at your death.

14. You kneel amid a multitude of Holy Angels from Heaven.

15.  Brings Blessings to you in regard to your temporal goods and concerns.

16.  Every Valid Holy Mass you devoutly attend which is Offered to Almighty God in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, e.g. Our Lady of Mount Carmel (July 16), Assumption (August 15), Immaculate Heart of Mary (August 22), Immaculate Conception (December 8), etc., Our Blessed Mother will shower you with her special love, Blessings, and protection in this life.  On your Day of Judgement, Our Lady will be permitted to plead for Mercy for you with her Divine Son, the Just Judge, with the same degree of fervor as the same number of Masses you devoutly attended in her honor.

17.  At every week-day Valid Holy Mass you devoutly attend (i.e. not at the Sunday Mass), which is Offered to Almighty God in honor of any particular Holy Angel or Holy Saint, thanking God for the favors bestowed on that Holy Angel or Holy Saint, you provide that Holy Angel or Holy Saint a new degree of honor, joy, and happiness in Heaven.  Because of this, you then receive the special love and protection of that Holy Angel or Holy Saint for yourself.

“The Deacon on festival days dismisses the people at the end of the Mass, by saying: Ite, [Go,] Missa est, that is, the Victim [of the Mass, i.e. Christ] has been sent [Missa est] to God through the Angel, so that it may be accepted by God” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P. [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 83, Article 4, Reply to Objection 9).


Internet Imprimatur:  2014 
For all web pages of www.traditionalcatholicmass.com
Which We have written, plus Our comments.
Please see Editor's Note below.

Patriarch Jacobus Maria DeJesus, D.D.


The Charity of Christ Urges Us On.
(2 Corinthians 5:14)

Editor's Note:  Our Internet Imprimatur of  2014 covers all of the web pages of www.traditionalcatholicmass.com, both up to 2014 and thereafter.  It is applied to all of the data on those web pages which We have written, plus the quotes from all approved Catholic sources such as the Catholic Bible, the Fathers of the Church, and various documents from other approved sources such as Doctrinal Councils, e.g. the Council of Trent, and various Papal Documents, and quotes from certain Catholic Theologians, e.g. Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., etc.

The Imprimatur  simply means that, in terms of the unchangeable Dogmatic Doctrines taught and promulgated by valid  Roman Catholic Councils and by valid   Roman Catholic Popes, there is to be found nothing in all of the data We have written, or quoted,  which explicitly contradicts the Catholic Traditional unchangeable Dogmatic Doctrines.  The exceptions, of course, are the quotes from various non-Catholics, anti-Catholics, and/or those people who are Heretics and Apostates.

The Imprimatur does not mean an automatic explicit approval  of all data on any web page which is from other sources, e.g. various books, etc. which are quoted, whole, or in part.

The Imprimatur does mean that such data can  be read without detriment to faith or morals,  except where otherwise noted, and/or explained, and/or referenced, and/or quoted, as explained by this Professor of Canon Law:

“If the imprimatur, or permission, to have the book published, is given, this means not anapproval   of its contents, but only the judgment of the respective authority that the book may, under present circumstances,be read without detriment to faith or morals. [1] [Footnote 1:  Noldin,  l.c., n. 708, p. 734].”  (Rev. P. Charles Augustine Bachofen, O.S.B., D.D., Professor of Canon Law, “A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law”, B. Herder Book Co., 1921, “The New Code of Canon Law”, Volume VI, Administrative Law (Can. 1154-1551), Book III - Part II, Sacred Places and Times, Title XXIII, The Censorship and Prohibition of Books, Administrative Law, Chapter I, Previous Censorship, p.433; emphasis added.)
Obviously, an internet web page is not a “book”, per se.  However, the term “book” and “books” is used to include other publications which were current at the time the 1917 “Code of Canon Law” was published.  By extension, therefore, the “mind of the law-giver” has the intention of including all other published writings   which clearly extends to web pages “published” on the internet, as proven in Canon 1384, § 2:
“Canon 1384, § 2 extends the meaning of the term books so as to include newspapers and other periodical publications as well as all other published writings, unless the contrary is manifest. [7] [Footnote 7:  This is a decidedly new regulation for which Card. Gasparri could give no quotation.]”.  (Rev. P. Charles Augustine Bachofen, O.S.B., D.D., Professor of Canon Law, “A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law”, B. Herder Book Co., 1921, “The New Code of Canon Law”, Volume VI, Administrative Law (Can. 1154-1551), Book III - Part II, Sacred Places and Times, Title XXIII, The Censorship and Prohibition of Books, Administrative Law, Canon 1384, § 2, p. 431. emphasis added.)


Semper Paratus - Always Prepared

Mindful of the need of “being ready always to satisfy every one that asketh you a reason of that Hope which is in you” (1 Peter 3:15), by the Most Holy Will and Grace of God, We continue to fulfill Our Sacred duties and obligations of Preaching and Teaching the Truth, and to “never believe, nor understand, anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles” (Oath Against Modernism), We hereby provide links to various important web pages which contain some important historical facts, in addition to certain Unchangeable Dogmatic Truths which all Catholics should know and practice in their lives   because We can not remain silent, mindful of this sterling example of Saint Pius X:

“These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore,  We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office.” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, which condemns the Heresies of Modernism and the NEW Theology Heresies, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)
Only two months and ten days later, this same Holy Pope excommunicated all Heretics, including the Modernist Heretics and the NEW Theology Heretics, in Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ, Monday, November 18, 1907 A.D.

Therefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty which REQUIRES that We publicly speak against these subtle heresies, mindful that “Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements which disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic Truth is camouflaged.” (Pope Pius VI, Giovanni Angelo Braschi [Wednesday, February 15, 1775 - Thursday, August 29, 1799], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Encyclical “Auctorem Fidei,” Thursday, August 28, 1794, ¶ 6; emphasis added).



Wasting Our Time

Some people think We waste Our time by writing about these unchangeable Truths.

On the contrary, We emphasize:  Truth, per se, contrary to the evolution - blatant continual changes - heresy  of the  automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics and the automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics and Apostates from the Roman Catholic Church,   is in fact unchangeable because “God is Truth” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, “Summa Theologica”, Part I, Question 16, Article 5; “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 93, Article 2, Reply to Objection 2. “Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book I, Chapter 60), and, because by nature and by definition, “Truth cannot be Truth’s contrary”  (“Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book V, Chapter 8), and also because “Every Truth without exception, and whoever may utter it, is from the Holy Ghost”  (“Summa Theologica”, Part I-II, Question 109, Article 1, Reply to Objection 1); emphasis added.

Furthermore, because ultimately, God does not change as He, Himself, testifies:   “I am the Lord and I change not” (Malachias 3:6), so, therefore, “Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.  Jesus Christ yesterday, and today, and the same forever” (Hebrews 13:8-9) since “With the Father of light there is no change nor shadow of alteration”  (James 1:17), to which the Hammer Against Heretics testifies:

But God’s Word is one and the same and, as it is written: The Word of our Lord endureth forever [Isaias 40:8] unchanged, not before or after another, but existing the same always.  For it was fitting, whereas God is One, that His Image should be One also, and His Word One and One His Wisdom.” (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Four Discourses Against the Arians, Discourse II, Chapter XVII, Introduction to Proverbs viii. 22, Continued, ¶ 36; emphasis added).
Writing about certain unchangeable Truths is actually part of Our Job Description, found in the Solemn, Sacred Oath We first took many, many years ago, and have renewed at every Clergy Conference held over the years which are attended by Our Brother Catholic Traditional Prelates and Priests, in which We state, among other things:
I [state your name], firmly accept and embrace each and every doctrine defined by the Church’s unerring teaching authority and all that she has maintained and declared, especially those points of doctrine which are directly opposed to the errors [Heresy of Modernism] of our time....

“Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the Apostles through the officially approved Fathers, in exactly the same sense and with always the same meaning.  And, therefore, I completely reject the heretical notion that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one meaning which the Church held from the beginning.  I likewise condemn every erroneous notion according to which, instead of the Divine Deposit of Faith entrusted by Christ to His spouse, the Church, and to be faithfully guarded by Her, one may substitute a philosophical system or a creation of the human mind gradually refined by human effort and capable of continual and indefinite development....

I submit to and fully uphold all of the condemnations, declarations and the prescripts contained in the encyclical letter PASCENDI and in the decree LAMENTABILI...

“Finally, I profess that I am completely opposed to the error of the Modernists who hold that there is nothing inherently Divine in Sacred Tradition; or who-which is far worse-admit it in a pantheistic sense.  For them, there would remain only a bare simple fact, like the ordinary facts of history, to the effect that the system begun by Christ and His Apostles still find men to support it by their energy, skill and ability; therefore, I most firmly retain and will retain to my last breath the Faith of the Fathers of the Church, which has the supernatural guarantee of Truth,...

And this is not to be understood that we may hold what seems better suited to the culture of a particular age, but rather that we may never believe nor understand anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles.

All this I promise to keep faithfully, entirely and sincerely and to guard them inviolately and never to depart from them in any way in teaching, word or in writing.  Thus I promise, thus I swear, so help me God and His Holy Gospels.”

(Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Papal Motu Proprio [On His Own Initiative], “Sacrorum Antistitum” - “The Oath Against Modernism”, Thursday, September 1, 1910, AAS - “Acta Apostolica Sedis” - Acts of the Apostolic See, 2-655; “Fontes”, n. 689, Volume III, page 774; emphasis added.)

How often We are asked:
Why did you write such and such?
Likewise, We are attacked for some of the Truths about which We write because certain people refuse to accept these Truths, remembering that every Truth is unchangeable, yet, ironically, some of them unknowingly embracethe Modernist Heresy   without a whimper merely because acertain Roman-Collared Layman, invalidly and illegally ordained a deacon, priest, or bishop with the new 1968 anti-Catholic rite  said whatever, or required compliance under the guise of false obedience!

These attacks then give others an excuse to ask Us:

Why do you bother to write anything when you know that there are people who will refuse to accept the Truths about which you write?
We respond with this wise and prudent counsel:
Cease labouring in vain and sowing upon rock many have been saying to me. But I hearkened to none of them.  For there is hope, I said to myself, that, God willing, my letter will accomplish something. But if that which We deprecate should take place, We shall at least have the advantage of escaping self reproach for keeping silence, and We shall not be worse than sailors on the sea, who, when they behold men of their own craft drifting on a plank, because their ship has been broken to pieces by the winds and waves, take down their sails, and cast anchor, and get into a boat and try to rescue the men, although strangers, known to them only in consequence of their calamity.

But if the others were unwilling to be rescued, no one would accuse those of their destruction who attempted to save them. This is what We offerbut We trust that, by the Grace of God, YOU also will do your part”.  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, “Treatise on the Priesthood,” Book I, An Exhortation to Theodoret after His Fall, Letter II, ¶ 5; emphasis added).


Pope Saint Pius X

“Our Predecessor, Benedict XIV, therefore, had good reason to write as his did:

‘This We asseverate [declare]:  that the majority of those who are condemned to eternal punishment [in Hell] fall into this everlasting misfortune because of ignorance of the Mysteries of the Faith which must necessarily be known and believed in order to be  numbered among the Elect.’ [Footnote 3:  Instit., 27:18; Pope Benedict XIV, Prospero Lambertini, [Wednesday, August 17, 1740 - Wednesday, May 3, 1758].”
(Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Acerbo Nimis”, Saturday, April 15, 1905, ¶ 2; emphasis added.)
