LETTER FROM THE SUPERIOR OF THE
CANONS REGULAR OF SAINT JOHN CANTIUS
Through the ages, the Church has taught that Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, Lex Vivendi. In other words, when the Sacred Liturgy is offered and prayed well it profoundly affects what we believe and the way we live.
The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, whose charism is to “Restore the Sacred,” hold the importance of instruction and catechesis in the Sacred Liturgy, as a means of helping all of us rediscover a profound sense of the value of the Holy Sacrifice in our lives.
Ever since Pope Benedict XVI issued Summorum Pontificum in 2007, the Canons Regular have trained priests how to offer the Extraordinary Form of the Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum.
Our multimedia web-site, SanctaMissa.org, was launched in 2007 and has assisted priests throughout the world to offer the usus antiquior, with dignity and devotion. Begun with the help and encouragement of the late Frances Cardinal George, O.M.I, priests and bishops from around the world have also been able to attend in-person workshops.
With this newly redesigned web-site and training program, the treasures of the usus antiquior, with its external ceremonies, will lead us to a profound encounter with Our Savior.
Very Rev. Joshua S. Caswell, SJC
Canons Regular of St. John Cantius
