This is another classic graphic on the The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Much of it applies to any form of the Mass, but it was written prior to the modern ordinary form (i.e. it is specific to the Mass of the Ages, now the extraordinary form a/k/a The Latin Mass).

This graphic does not work well on computer screens, but is in high resolution (4000x3333) so it will print well.

I found this old graphic online and cleaned it up.

(Mt 24:42-51)
Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.

Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.

"Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household to distribute to them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so. Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.

But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is long delayed,' and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with drunkards, the servant's master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.

A free webinar with Dan Burke and Fr. Dwight Longenecker on spiritual warfare, June 8. I've registered.

Liz Wheeler speaks with Michael Knowles (both Catholic, BTW) on the historical Thanksgiving (vs. the false woke rewrite of it).

I was among the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard this morning at San Antonio's Assembly 2019.

The Amazon Synod has come to a close, producing a report that easily could have been written before it even started. The deck was so thoroughly stacked by who would attend and what was to be discussed that no other outcome was realistically possible.

Pushing for married priests is a terrible idea. Women "deacons" is heresy. Pray that to the degree Pope Francis follows this path that he has orchestrated, that a future pope will thoroughly and definitively undo.

Msgr. Charles Pope (reserved, level-headed) writes for EWTN's National Catholic Register:

On Saturday evening I was with brother Knights attending the White Mass in San Antonio, TX.

After this morning's Funeral Mass for Bishop Thomas Flanagan, my brother Knights and I who served as Honor Guard at the Funeral received a blessing from Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller.

Earlier today I was part of a small group of Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus who joined the parishioners of San Antonio's Italian Catholic Parish for their Columbus Day Procession.
