Embertide week is upon us “Sant Crux, Lucia, Cineres, Charismata Dia  Ut sit in angaria quarta sequens feria”

For non-Latinists means:, Holy Cross, Lucy, Ash Wednesday, Pentecost, are when the quarter holidays follow (the Liturgical season pivots) it might be easier to just remember “Lucy, Ashes, Dove, (Pentecost) and Cross.”


Normally  the Ember Wednesday Friday and Saturday are a minimum of a one meal fast and the imposition of additional personal prayers this year Ember Wednesday is suppressed due to it falling on the 21st which is the Feast of the Martyrdom of Saint Mathew

Saint Mathew the apostle was murdered at the Altar in 60AD while offering Mass to Jewish catechumens

This murder was a martyrdom that was similar to the one carried out against Father Jacques Hamel in France at the hands of advancing Islamicists

This 2nd class sung Mass will be offered in red – this Wednesday evening at 6:00pm at the Church of the Holy Innocents – Garment District , NYC

Friday evening @ 6:00pm will be a traditional Ember Friday Mass
