Ad Jesum per Mariam

I am very delighted to be updated to some of the developments that I am seeing about the Traditional Latin Mass. And when I say development, I am pertaining to the good taste of unbelievable youth of today who are now searching for an act of worship that is very fitting for God and which is just for God alone.

Due to the recent exchanges of opinions that I have seen regarding the Traditional Latin Mass, I am urged by myself to write my mind in defense of many young people such as myself who attends the Old Mass and have countless appreciation and love for it.

In this changing world, I greatly believe that the act of worship to God which is the Traditional Latin Mass do not deal with fashion. The Traditional Latin Mass is a flesh that worships. For if the identity of a sacrifice cannot be seen in a Mass, how can we appreciate the grace we are going to profit when the flesh does not agree with the spirit? For if the flesh of us is not drawn in the flesh of the Mass, how are we sure that our flesh will be agreeable to what is spiritual?

For if I do not see and sense in the Mass the angelic atmosphere that it must have, how can my soul agree to what I see and sense when the Mass is adorned with emptiness and worldly adornment? Will my soul who goes deep to what is spiritual in the Mass by imagining suffice? Perhaps not. For my mind will be filled with emptiness or worldly images because of what I see and sense.

If a Mass must have the flesh of bread and wine to become the Body and Blood of Christ, is not it worthy and reasonable to have the real flesh of the Mass that is worthy of the spirit?

And I will boldly say that the Traditional Latin Mass meets the criteria – the criteria that the flesh is agreeable with the spirit. It tries to become worthy of the spirit. It is like a pure white Host that is worthy to be changed into the Body and Blood of Christ.

We Catholics are not just spiritual beings. We also have flesh. But if a Mass do not give the worship for God that must be see and sensed by the flesh so that the flesh will be turned to the spirit, how can we be certain that the soul of us will be like that of Christ?

The Traditional Latin Mass is not a fashion. It has the flesh that respects what is of angelic worship. It is incomprehensible like that of the bread and wine turning into the Body and Blood of Christ. You do not understand it, but by believing or with faith, you understand. Same with the Traditional Latin Mass. The flesh cannot comprehend it, but the spirit does.

The bread that was made was made worthy so that it is worthy to become the Body of Christ. Just so, a mass must be worthy also of a flesh that is due to its natures. These are the angelic and sacrificial nature. And as we meet these natures, we hope that it is worthy of God and in turn, we hope that God will be pleased for our worship and will grant us the graces to understand mysteries of Him by our spirit, turning the incomprehensible for us to be comprehensible.

St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort’s humble book which is humble in its content and how literally little it is, is a cornerstone of all souls who pray for a way of life that is entirely for God alone. This book is a must for all who desire to serve God in a most majestic way but do not have the humility yet as one’s foundation. This book, The Secret of Mary, will always be a secret even if its contents were read and re-read for humility is a secret virtue that this book contains. I have read a good number of books that deals with spiritual matters but I just only found out now that The Secret of Mary is a book that must always be read again and again amidst the great spiritual books that other saints had written. The book can be likened to a golden ring and necklace that must always be worn by a person. Yet, it is humble even if it is gold when the book’s contents were put into action. How happy a thousand times is the man who has this humble book as his cornerstone even if he had met so many great books in his life. The secret for a life of gold is to read it once again when the person is aware of the fact that the gold is getting covered with dust, the fact that he is covered by everything he read, learned, and acquired from any other books. The Secret of Mary is a book that is practical and simple. All who prays to become a simple follower of Christ must have a foundation for his pillars that can be seen by others, and that foundation is The Secret of Mary. Once you found this book, you will realize that the spirituality the book shows for you to live by is a perfect spirituality that is so humble and easy, which is the secret of its greatness.

Humility is the cornerstone or foundation of all the virtues and so is this book that I now exhort you to acquire. And I say that in acquiring all the virtues so as to live a virtuous life, a person must have humility in everything that he does that will make him virtuous. Just so, always return to read this humble book again and again even if you have a thousand books at hand other than this. For it is a grave danger to acquire so many learning from a thousand books without foundation which is a great spirituality that The Secret of Mary contains. So, practically speaking, to avoid any danger, just be humble to read the book again and again whenever possible and, if it is inevitable for you not to read books that are more or less important to be read, then the more reason you must recourse to this little book in order for you not to be lost and be led into darkness that the many books you are about to read might bring you. The Secret of Mary is not only a book. It is life, and its pages are alive, and it is a life for eternal life.

God is a humble God. In Jesus Christ we see that His Divinity and humanity were subjected to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the law of spiritual grace and natural grace, Jesus Christ’s being as God and His humanity was made possible and united by God through Mary and only in her. So, we humans are the most supposed to subject ourselves to Mary if we wish to be more like Jesus who, although He is God, preferred to subject Himself to the law of natural grace to become human, and now He is God-man in order for the humanity to be saved and be brought back to the law of spiritual grace. If God made it possible through Mary, how much more we humans are supposed to subject our body and soul to Mary in order to be more like Jesus? This reality does not require much common sense. At the moment we found Mary; let us thank God that He made St. Louis de Montfort as His great Marian teacher that taught that it is lawful to go to Mary in order to be more like Jesus and there is no spirituality that is greater than Montfort had already taught, which can be found in his masterpiece, The Secret of Mary. As for me, this is what I can say: “Let the reader understand. Let him accept this teaching who can.”
