Move the Latin Mass Upstairs sign now

We, the undersigned, appeal to Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo to move the Tridentine Latin Mass, currently celebrated in the basement of St. Anthonys Catholic Church in Des Moines, Iowa, and restore it to its proper place, the main sanctuary of the church. As this is the only Latin Mass celebrated in the Diocese of Des Moines, we request this Mass to be celebrated each Sunday morning and all Holy Days of Obligation.

In accordance with Pope Benedict XVIs Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum and the subsequent Instruction Universae Ecclesiae, the Mass is to be afforded the same dignity and stature as the Ordinary Form; by not having the Extraordinary Form celebrated in the main church, we feel that the proper exposure to the Mass is being hindered.

In an effort to pass on Tradition, we are deeply concerned about teaching our children the proper reverence for the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. We are indeed enthusiastic that by celebrating the Tridentine Latin Mass in a space befitting its sublime beauty and holiness, that attendance will increase and people will become more deeply rooted in their faith.

We pray to the Lord, our God, that restoration may be made, through Christ, our Lord, and with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Amen.

    Young children are mostly visual learners and physical beauty grabs their attention. We know this from how catechetical the Medieval churches were in their statues, stained glass windows, architecture, etc. for the young and even the illiterate. Therefore
