UVS Prayer Intentions for August

Dear members and friends,

Last month we prayed for the resumption of public Masses and it is with a lighter heart that I send to you our August prayer intentions. After a cycle of praying specifically for each TLM community, through July we prayed for all priests who offer the Traditional Mass and as a result we are seeing not only recovery from lockdown but signs of growth.

Please do continue to join me in praying for the work of UVS and for the growth of the TLM across the country.

Our prayer intentions for August are:

1. The lifting of the current restrictions still in place over public worship

2. For Alexander Masir who is preparing to return to Hungary to pursue a vocation with the Norbertines. (You can read about Alexander in our latest newsletter)

3. For our traditional Catholic families, their vocation to Marriage and the faith of their children

UVS Prayer Intentions for July

Dear members and friends

I pray that this message finds you well. Last month, we prayed for the swift and safe re-opening of Churches and return to public Masses, and are pleased that this is now, gradually, taking place around the country. We encourage you to pray for and to support your priests in their endeavours to resume public ministry, and please be assured of my daily prayers for the members of UVS, especially when we are enduring this great trial of being unable to receive the sacraments.

Thank you to everyone who receives these monthly prayer petitions – by email or on social media – and prays along with us.  Starting this month, we are adding something new to these messages that we hope will be of benefit to you in your prayer life. Please find here a link to this month’s Liturgical Calendar of feasts for Scotland. Every month this page will be updated with the feasts of the month, including feasts for specific dioceses in Scotland: https://unavocescotland.org/ordo/

Please join me in prayer during the month of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, so that, by suffering well and bearing our cross in these days, we might merit the grace of conversion for ourselves, for members of the Mystical Body at all levels and for the whole world.

Prayer intentions for July:

  1. Resumption of public Mass without delay
  2. All the clergy who say or are learning the TLM
  3. A favourable outcome to the CDF survey

Anima Christi, sanctifica me 
Corpus Christi, salva me
Sanguis Christi, inebria me

In Domino,

Fraser Pearce

UVS Prayer Intentions for May

Dear members and friends,

Thank you for your ongoing support, both material and spiritual. In April we prayed for the end of the current pandemic through reparation for the sins of the world, and the growth of the TLM community in Dundee. Although community life in general has been impacted by the stay at home measures to combat the pandemic, we are pleased to share that Fr Ninian (of Dundee) has been posting links to his Traditional Latin Masses (which are streamed live on YouTube) on his Facebook page. Also, reaching a wider audience are the FSSP via their LiveMass apostolate, which we know has served many of our members as well. We thank God for these consolations in the midst of trials, and continue to offer prayer and reparation.

In the month of Mary we pray for:

  1. the growth of the Traditional Latin Mass in Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, Glasgow
  2. the reopening of Churches in the first wave of lockdown relaxation
  3. a favourable response to the questionnaire on the Traditional Latin Mass issued to bishops by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican.

Thank you again for supporting us in our work for Jesus, for the Church and for the Traditional Mass.

In Domino,

Fraser Pearce

UVS Prayer Intentions for April

Dear members and friends,

Thank you for your ongoing support, both material and spiritual. In March we prayed for the priests who we were sending to the Latin Mass Training Course; interest in this course was high, such that some priests who had attempted to book found that the course was full! Sadly, due to the outbreak of Coronavirus the course has been postponed; we are looking into assisting these priests with attending the course on a future date.

In April, I ask you to join me in adding the following to your daily Rosary intentions:

1. The growth of the Traditional Latin Mass community in Dundee

2. The end of the current pandemic through reparation for the sins of the world, particularly sins against Our Lord in the sacred liturgy and sins of idolatry and blasphemy

Thank you again for supporting us in our work for Jesus, for the Church and for the Traditional Mass.

In Domino,

Calling Priests: Prayers Against Pestilence

Dear Reverend Fathers, members and friends,

I have recently written about the practical arrangements requested by the bishops of Scotland and their bearing on the Traditional Latin Mass. In addition to the practical measures taken, I write to encourage all priests to add the prayers from the Votive Mass in Time of Pestilence as a spiritual response to the threat of Coronavirus. Votive Masses are not possible in Lent, but the collect, secret and post communion can be added after those of the Mass of the day in the manner of a commemoration.

Download a PDF here.

Although holy water is not to be placed in stoups, I encourage all priests, whether they say the Traditional Latin Mass or not, to make holy water and exorcised salt, blessed with the traditional ritual, available to the faithful who present a container for private use. The prayers are self-explanatory and worthy of consideration.

Rite of blessing holy water, Traditional Form

I ask all lay people to forward this message to priests.

In Domino

1. The growth of the Traditional Latin Mass in Aberdeen
