Nothing Superfluous led by Fr. James W. Jackson, FSSP: A seminar on the theological basis and beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass; February 8 – 10, 2019

Are you a part of the TLM movement that is spreading across the US? Have you wondered about the Latin Mass but have never attended one or are too young to remember it? Does it seem foreign and too complex? This seminar will be beneficial for the full spectrum: Those who attend the TLM to those who just want to learn more about it. The Traditional Latin Mass community has been growing as people seek the Mass celebrated in the former rite.

Fr. James W. Jackson, FSSP has written a comprehensive book, Nothing Superfluous, An Explanation of the Symbolism of the Rite of St. Gregory the Great which outlines the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. He explains the theological meaning behind the art, architecture, words and gestures of the Rite of St. Gregory. It is a clear guide to anyone seeking to understand more fully the beauty of the Holy Mass.
