As we enter the Advent season, listeners submitted questions about Advent, ranging from its history and origins, to how best to celebrate Advent with children, and whether or not it’s ok to put up Christmas decorations during Advent!
On this episode, we’ll tackle two listener questions:
Is it ever ok to miss Mass on a Sunday for non-emergency reasons? We know it’s not sinful to miss Mass due to illness or physical inability, but what about a family vacation? Or work? Can someone accept a job that will require them to miss Mass?
Also, a listener asked why Rock music is not ok to listen to? Is there something objectively wrong with this type of music (as well as pop, dance, etc.) that is different inherently than other types of music?

Our second interview with the Communications Director of the US District of the SSPX, and the Editor of Angelus Press, Mr. James Vogel. It comes as the SSPX is preparing for its 50th Anniversary – we discuss the original mission of Archbishop Lefebvre, and how he would view the work the Society is doing today. We also asked Mr. Vogel what it is he wished every person knew about the SSPX and its work. Also, we’ll discuss the Angelus Press Conference, the 2020 Liturgical Calendar, and some of his favorite works that are not published by Angelus Press.
A listener asks Father why the Society of Saint Pius X doesn’t utilize the 1955 Holy Week Liturgy, but instead uses the 1962 Liturgy. We discuss the differences and licitness. Also, do we really know why Judas committed such an act of treason?
