Fidelity to the Word
Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

But Christ having come a high priest of the good things to come, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.

Hebrews 9:11-12

Sexagesima Sunday

Today was Sexagesima Sunday, the second Sunday of three in the traditional short Septuagesima season of preparation for Lent. Una Voce of Orange County kindly provided liturgical Mass texts for the day here and here.

Athanasius contra Mundum drew attention to the story of Noah and the flood recounted in the Breviary on this day, showing how the old testament prefigures the new.
