Please continue to pray for those who lost their lives, were injured and/or lost homes and property in this disaster.  Among those who lost their lives, was Roy Rohter, the proponent for the Traditional Latin Masses held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a moving way to express devotion to Our Lord by making reparation through adoration for the offenses committed against His Sacred Heart. Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, a 17th century nun, made devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus best known after He revealed His desire to her in visions that we all acknowledge His tremendous love for us.

The symbolic image of Christ’s heart burning with love for us, even while pierced with the thorns of our indifference and ingratitude, as in the painting above, is also associated with this devotion.

Faithful Catholics around the world show Jesus their love in prayers such as the Litany of the Sacred Heart. Many also visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament in this devotion and receive Communion at Mass on the First Friday of each month in a spirit of reparation for the hostility and indifference he suffers from unrepentant sinners.

The Litany of the Sacred Heart is one of six litanies approved for public use by the Church and is often prayed during First Friday services. When prayed publicly, the congregation’s lines are in italics.

Latin Mass in Santa Barbara - Septuagesima Sunday

Septuagesima Sunday ‐ January 28th at 5pm
Our Lady of Mount Carmel ‐ 1300 East Valley Road, Montecito


A Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) offered by
Fr. David Gonzalez, O. Praem., Thomas Aquinas College Chaplain
And combined choir directed by Andrew Petracca of Saint Mary Magdalen


Septuagesima is the ninth Sunday before Easter. The pre‐Lent season beginning
with Septuagesima and Lent are both times of penance. Septuagesima is a time of voluntary fasting in preparation for the obligatory Great Fast of Lent. Sobriety and somberness reign liturgically; the Alleluia and Gloria are banished. Throughout this short Season and that of Lent there is a deepening sense of penance and somberness, culminating in Passiontide (the last two weeks of Lent), that will suddenly and joyously end at the Vigil of Easter on Holy Saturday when the alleluia returns and Christ's Body is restored and glorified.

For Unto Us A Child is Born

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder:  and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 40:1  Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.  Speak ye comfort to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned.  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low, the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.
