Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word
Receive Training in the Extraordinary Form

EWTN FriarsCHICAGO, IL (August 29, 2008)  - The Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, based in the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama, have sent two of their priests to the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius to learn to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass.

The Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word were founded in 1987, by Mother Mary Angelica, PCPA, who also founded the Eternal Word Television Network.

Fr. Joseph and Fr. Miguel are stationed at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama, where Mother Angelica and the Poor Clare Nuns are cloistered.

Each day Fr. Joseph and Fr. Miguel have had the opportunity to study and observe the various forms of the Traditional Latin Mass with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius. They have attended Low Mass, High Mass, High Mass with Incense, Requiem High Mass with Incense and the Absolution over the Catafalque, as well as. a Solemn High Requiem Mass

Friars of the Eternal WordSince the Summer of 2007 the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have trained almost 175 priests to celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Mass through the Sancta Missa Latin Mass Workshops. Future workshops are planned for the Winter and Spring to be held on the campus of Mundelein Seminary at the Cardinal Stritch Retreat House. 


After a week of study, observation, instruction and preparation, Fr. Joseph and Fr. Miguel were able to offer their first Tridentine Latin Masses at St. John Cantius Church in Chicago.

On Friday, November 7, 2008, at the hour of Divine Mercy, Fr. Joseph celebrated his first Tridentine Latin Mass in honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

On Saturday, November 8, 2008, Fr. Miguel celebrated his first Mass in the Extraordinary Form (1962 Missale Romanum) at the High Altar of St. John Cantius, Chicago.

As his religious vocation and priesthood is dedicated to Our Lady under the title of Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Grace, Fr. Miguel celebrated the Votive Mass for Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace.

Congratulations to the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word for their efforts in learning to offer the Extraordinary Form of the Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum under the instruction of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago.
 

 
Cardinal Francis George

"In order to better serve Catholics who wish to worship according to the 'Forma extraordinaria', ample and ongoing catechesis in the form of the Mass must be available. This can only be achieved if, first of all, priests and seminarians are prepared to serve this need."

—H. E. Francis Cardinal George
