Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament. ~St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Where Can I find Traditional Latin Mass?
The Light of Faith is still burning! Far from being schismatic, or heretical, or divisive, the traditional Catholic movement is nothing less than reality and the future of the Roman Catholic Church.
TLMs are administered by traditional Catholic societies, institutes, and religious orders around the world, such as priests of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Society of St. Pius X, the Society of St. Pius V, (SSPV), the Institute of Christ the King, the Roman Catholic priests of the Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen, as well as other Catholic monastic communities you may find in your area.
While the traditionalist movement in the Church is growing, and yet fragmented, we feel it is our duty to service and support the needs of faithful church members with all materials and information leading to complete restoration and unity of the Church.
The Liturgy of the 1962 Daily Missal
The liturgy of the 1962 Daily Missal is better known as the “Tridentine Mass”, “Traditional Latin Rite” or “Traditional Roman Rite” and since 2007 as the “Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite”, a phrase used in Pope Benedict XVI’s 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum to describe the liturgy of the 1962 Roman Missal. In his letter, he said, “In parishes where there is a stable group of faithful who adhere to the earlier liturgical tradition, the pastor should willingly accept their requests to celebrate the Mass.” 1962 Daily Missals are available from the Rosary Bay shop. Always in stock!
On Liturgical Reform
Liturgy must really have great continuity, protected from what is arbitrary, in which I really … am raised up into a communion of celebration that is something other than what commissions or liturgy committees devise. I am of the opinion, to be sure, that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It’s impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it suddenly declares that what until now was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent. Can it be trusted any more about anything else?” – Pope Benedict XVI
The liturgical reform [of Vatican II], in its concrete realization, has distanced itself even more from its origin. The result has not been a reanimation, but devastation. In place of the liturgy, fruit of a continual development, they have placed a fabricated liturgy. They have deserted a vital process of growth and becoming in order to substitute a fabrication. They did not want to continue the development, the organic maturing of something living through the centuries, and they replaced it, in the manner of technical production, by a fabrication, a banal product of the moment.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI (Revue Theologisches, Vol. 20, Feb. 1990, pgs. 103-104)
There is one God, and one Christ, and there is one Church, and one Chair founded by the voice of the Lord upon a Rock. Another altar cannot be constituted or a new priesthood be made, beside the one altar and the one priesthood. Whosoever gathereth elswhere, scattereth. Whatsoever by human madness is instituted, so that the divine disposition is violated, is adulterous, is impious, is sacrilegious.” -St. Cyprian, Epist. ad Pleb. xl. n. 5
If anyone says that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church customarily used in the solemn administration of the sacraments may be despised, or may be freely omitted by the ministers without sin, or may be changed into other new rites by any church pastor whomsoever, let him be anathema. …Council of Trent, Sess. VII, Can. XIII. Pope Paul III, 3 March 1547 (D.S. 1613)
Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ. ~ St. Athanasius
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. ~ Matthew 16:18
