Stand Up!

Yesterday, around the country, the Rite of Election took place in preparation for the initiation of catechumens and candidates into the Holy Catholic Church. What was your diocesan one like? Here's San Jose from last year.

Well, my wife and I are teaching several protestant people the Catechism from "This is the Faith", by Canon Ripley, and from the Roman Catechism.
We are also taking them to as many Traditional Latin Masses as possible so that they may be exposed to as non protestant looking a Mass as is possible.
They love the TLM and it is an awesome tool of conversion.

Please say a little prayer that they come into the Church very soon.
God bless you

May the Lord draw them into His one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church!

Well, I'm not sure what to make of that Rite of Election service shown in the video clip. They're a lively bunch, at the very least! (Though I'll admit I thought the book waving was corny. Oh well...)
