Worldwide Prayer to Preserve The Latin Mass
Urgent appeal to the Catholic Faithful throughout the world
Please pray a daily prayer or perform an act of penance each day of Lent for the preservation of the ancient Latin Mass! A minimum of one Ave each day, but more is encouraged! Let us join together in unison throughout the world and delight Heaven with the sound of the ancient and powerful prayer in the universal language.
The Intention: That Popes Saint John Paul II, Saint John XXIII, and Benedict XVI will intercede for us and beg God to prevent current Church leaders from further suppression of the Latin Mass.
The Prayer: Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

What Is The Preserve The Latin Mass Movement
The traditional liturgy has nourished many saints throughout the centuries and continues to edify a growing number of souls throughout the Catholic Church today. Catholics of all backgrounds value and treasure this Mass and many non-Catholics are inspired by its beauty and majesty.
This Mass is an integral part of our collective heritage and must be preserved.
We see the eventual prohibition or severe restriction of the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments as a loss, not only to the many Catholics who regularly lift up their hearts to God in this form of worship, but to all Catholics, and to humanity in general.

Preserve the Latin Mass, Una Voce International and others, appeal to all Catholics of good will, to offer prayers and penances during the season of Lent, particularly for the intention of : the liberty of the Traditional Mass.

Gabby shares how attending the Latin Mass has profoundly changed her life. She discusses the damage done by Cardinal DiNardo's restrictions of the Latin Mass in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston (Texas, USA).
We thank Gabby for having the courage to take action in our fight to Preserve The Latin Mass.
Basic Prayers in Latin
Pater Noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo.
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
In nomine Patris, et Filii,
et Spiritus Sancti.

Help Support this Growing Worldwide Movement
We are just getting started at Preserve The Latin Mass, Inc. Beyond our efforts to educate and influence through the open letter, we wish to appeal to all Catholics of good will, to offer prayers and penances during the season of Lent, particularly for the intention: the liberty of the Traditional Mass. It is also our goal to build out this site to contain helpful and engaging content about the Latin Mass.
We also plan to use this site to ensure our voices are heard by our bishops. We, the lay people, can speak out. But we need our bishops to act. Please consider donating and becoming an ambassador to help us advance this movement.
