This morning, at St. Thomas More Priory, we celebrated the external solemnity of the Feast of St. Pius X which fell on this past Monday, Labour Day. Of course St. Pius X is the patron of the FSSPX, so all of the finest vestments, altar cards, and sacred vessels were employed as on Christmas or Easter. Fr. Vernoy gave an excellent sermon against both Quietism and the Christian Materialism promoted by Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer and his Opus Dei. Labour is simply a means to an end, and is marked by penance. It hurts and this pain is a consequence of Original Sin.
