Message from Fr. Dominic and Fr. Jurado
We are all now carrying a heavy cross. Jesus and Mary are our models in suffering. They will help us to carry this cross bravely and patiently if we ask for their support and assistance. If we fix what we can and patiently offer up the rest, we will earn many merits for Heaven and experience supernatural peace. Even severe suffering is usually of short duration and does not last without intermission.

When we suffer patiently we not only become more closely united to God and therefore procure greater happiness in Heaven, but also experience supernatural peace and joy that diminish our hurt, pain, and frustration. During hard times good people are strengthened and consoled by God to endure the trial facing them.

We must always keep our priorities in proper order:

God, first
Family, second
and then everything else

The lockdown we’re experiencing is a wake up call for all of us. It is an opportunity to examine the state of our soul at this very moment and to realize what is really important in life.

Mortal sin is the greatest evil and deprives our soul of sanctifying grace that is essential for entrance into Heaven.

If you have a mortal sin on your soul and are not now able to go to confession, try to make a perfect act of contrition. This is done by telling God you are sincerely sorry for your sins, not primarily because you dread the loss of Heaven andthe pains of Hell, but mainly because you love God so much and have hurt Him, even though He has been so good to you. Perfect contrition will take away mortal sin at any time and not merely in crisis.

Fr. Francis O’Connell has written, “Perfect contrition simply means that one is sorry for his sins because sin is opposed to the goodness of God in Himself. To make an act of perfect contrition one need not exclude other motives for detesting sin, such as the fear of punishment. Perfect contrition [is] not necessarily... [accompanied] by an emotional intensity.”

“It is not difficult to make an act of perfect contrition for one who firmly believes all the doctrines of the Catholic faith. One who seeks the pardon of mortal sin through perfect contrition must have the intention of confessing that sin the next time... [he goes to confession.] In the mean time he may not receive Holy Communion, but he is in the state of grace, so that if he died suddenly he would be saved. The most practical application of this doctrine is that if a person has the misfortune to commit a mortal sin he should make an act of perfect contrition as soon as possible and thus regain the friendship of God.”

Since most families are very active, quality time and positive interaction between family members are often rare occurrences. In His Divine Providence, God has given you this time in order to renew the bonds of love and union in your family. He also is giving you time to consider and repair ill-feelings toward your loved ones, neighbors or anyone that you have been carrying a grudge against.

The demons will try to use this time to fill you with fear and lack of trust in God. They will tempt you with extreme thoughts. Evil spirits want you to be afraid. Do not have excessive fear because God and Our Lady will be there to help you. This is a time to practice the virtues of trust and moral courage.

The Roman Ritual says, “Let us fear no evil because the Lord is with us.” Jesus Christ said, “Do not be afraid, little flock...” “I will not leave you orphans... Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, or be afraid.” (John 14: 19, 27.) Our trust in God is based upon His almighty power and infinite love and mercy.

Hopelessness leads to despair. Despair leads to death by suicide. Hopelessness can be avoided if a person looks to the things of Heaven because nothing in this world is forever. This world cannot bring us true peace and happiness.

You can avoid hopelessness:

* by trusting in God’s infinite love for you
* by unselfishness
* by being charitable
* by stop focusing on yourself
* by helping others
* by remaining close to God and the sacraments
* by practicing charity to family and friends
* by taking the focusoff yourself
* by surrendering to God who will help you

Most people are to the point of hopelessness and despair because they depend too much on themselves andthe world to solve their problems and help them out. You need God’s help and must pray. Most people are full of pride. If they humble themselves and turn to God, He will help them. Only in prayer can the soul find the strength needed to face life’s difficulties.

In times of great tribulation Catholics turn to prayer, confiding in the almighty power of God and the maternal protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Sadly, due to the current pandemic you cannot easily attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and receive the sacraments. However, you can easily take the rosary in your hands and pray it devoutly as Our Lady demanded at Fatima. She said, “Pray the rosary.” When we pray the rosary daily we are strengthened to resist the against the attacks of the world,the flesh and the devil.

The rosary protects people from the snares of Satan and from calamities and tragedies. It also protects us from misfortune, delivers people from evil, gives final perseverance and protects families. Hopefully, you are all wearing the brown scapular because it is Our Lady’s protective shield for you. In this current crisis, stay close to your Heavenly Mother like St. John, the apostle. In the company of Mary, he remained faithful to Our Lord even during His brutal Passion and Crucifixion.

Use this time wisely. Do not become absorbed with extensive cell phone contact, social media, television, and sinful occasions of sin such as pornography that could lead to the loss of your immortal soul. Do not try to escape from anxiety and fear by the use of drugs or alcohol. Children and young adults should try to maintain peace in the family by not arguing with parents or siblings.

The external circumstances that have disrupted so many aspects of our daily lives provide us with an opportunity to deepen our faith, hope and love for God. It also can convert sinners.

Hopefully, when things return to normal, traditional Catholics will appreciate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass more than ever before. In addition, I hope they will frequent the sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist by going to confession often and devoutly receiving Our Lord in Holy Communionas often as they can. Recently, many people have been in a frenzy trying to buy necessary supplies. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Catholics made a run on confession?

Pretend that this is your Lenten retreat during which you can ponder and understand where you must amend your life. Trust in God and remember, no matter what you see, He’s in charge.

Dearly beloved in Christ, let’s think positive with a heart full of confidence in God to the point where we can say, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. Sweet Mother, I place this cause in thy hands.

Message from the Bishop
As Catholics, we have to set a good example to our neighbor by obeying lawful civil authority. At this time, the President of the United States has issued guidelines for the next 15 days in order to protect the elderly and the those with pre-existing conditions from contracting this virus as it could be fatal to them. His other concern is that our healthcare system is not able to provide sufficient medical care to large numbers. It is prudent that we abide by these guidelines not only for the welfare of those most vulnerable, but also that a large number of our faithful avoid mandatory quarantine in the event that one parishioner should come down with this virus. Therefore until further notice all public Masses are cancelled. Please pray the rosary every day to end the Coronavirus.

Please recite this prayer for protection:

Holy Mother, shield and protect me and take me under thy mantle, and keep me close to thee, until Jesus calls me to my reward, which He has prepared for me in eternity. Amen.

Prayer for Courage
Dear God give me courage for, perhaps I lack it more than anything else. I need courage to bear unkindness, mockery, contradiction; I need courage to fight against the devil, against terrors, troubles, temptations, attractions, darkness and false lights; against tears, depression and, above all, fear. I need Thy help, dear God. Strenghten me with Thy love and Thy grace. Console me with Thy blessed presence and grant me the courage to persevere until I am with Thee forever in heaven. Amen.

Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Santa Clarita, California, is much like any Catholic church you might have attended before the Second Vatican Council occurred in the 1960's. This Council, supposedly intended to bring about a genuine spiritual renewal in the living of our Faith, inaugurated liturgical changes that broke drastically from the Church's sacred liturgy and traditions of nearly 2,000 years. It is because of these changes and the resultant universal loss of faith among so many bishops, priests, nuns and laity, that Queen of Angels and chapels like this one are drawing more and more interest from concerned Catholics all over the world.

The pastor of Queen of Angels is Father Dominic Radecki, CMRI, a priest belonging to the religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen . The bishop and priests of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) offer only the Tridentine Latin Mass in all the churches and chapels they serve. Remaining faithful to all of the Church's venerable teachings and traditions, Queen of Angels Church reflects the stability and endurance of truths and doctrines that will never change with the times.

The faithful receive Holy Communion on their tongues as they kneel at the communion rail in humble adoration of the Real Presence of God. Ladies wear head coverings and modest clothing out of respect. The reverent silence in the House of God indicates a living faith in Christ Who dwells in the tabernacle.

We have a full schedule of activities at our church. The Sacraments are administered exactly the way they were before Vatican II: Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, the Holy Eucharist, Matrimony and Extreme Unction. Parish organizations who attend Queen of Angels, ranging from basic catechism instruction for the youth and converts to the Faith, to our Confraternity of Christian Mothers. For those who wish to lead a more dedicated spiritual life, we have the Confraternity of Mary Immaculate Queen. We invite you to check out all of our parish activities on this website.

We at Queen of Angels welcome visitors to our parish at anytime of the year, but especially at Christmas and Easter. Although the number of parishioners has outgrown our small church, newcomers are always welcome.

Each of our parishioners adds something unique to the family atmosphere we think is very special here at our church. Come and see it for yourself! If you have not been to a Latin Mass in many years, if you have never been to one at all, you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find at Queen of Angels. You will feel as if you have come home, as indeed you have.

Prayer to the August Queen of Heaven

August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the Angels, who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent's head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe.

Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us.

All ye holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen

O good and tender Mother Thou shalt ever be our love and our hope.

Holy Angels and Archangels, keep and defend us. Amen



Novena of Confidence
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

(for family relations that have fallen away)

O Lord Jesus Christ, to Thy Most Sacred Heart I confide this intention (silently mention here the names you are praying for). Only look upon me, then do what Thy Heart inspires. Let Thy Sacred Heart decide. I count on it. I trust in it. I throw myself on its mercy, Lord Jesus! Thou wilt not fail me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Thy love for me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked Thee for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Thy open, broken Heart, and when the Eternal Father looks upon it, covered with Thy Precious Blood, He will not refuse it.s It will no longer be my prayer but Thine, O Sacred Heart of Jesus. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. Let me never be confounded. Amen.

Prayer

The time may be delayed, the manner may be unexpected, but the answer is sure to come.

Not a tear of sacred sorrow, not a breath of holy desire poured out to God will ever be lost, but in God's own time and way will be wafted back again in clouds of mercy and fall in showers of blessings on you and on those for whom you pray.
