Mountain Echo: Mount celebrates traditional Latin Mass

Kala Garry posts an article in the "Mountain Echo"--the campus newspaper of Mount Saint Mary's in Emmitsburg, MD--on the Traditional Mass celebrated on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception as experienced from a "student's-eye" view. The article documents the experience of the Usus Antiquior from those who may never have seen one previously.

While mostly unfamiliar with the EF, many Mount students joined the seminarians for the special celebration. Having grown up with the Norvus Ordo, most were lost between the quiet Latin prayers of the priest and the beautiful parts sung by the choir. Regardless, the reverence of the Mass brought many into a high form of worship.

"It was an incredible experience," reflects sophomore Tricia Lester. "I don't even know how to put it into words. The reverence of the prayers and the solemness of the Mass gave me a deeper appreciation of the miracle that occurs at every Eucharist. Plus, the homily was amazing!"
I pray that the Mount will offer this Mass more frequently as it clearly touched some students deeply. Read the full story here.
