THE THIRD SUNDAY AFTER THE EPIPHANY
The Sundays after Epiphany—preceding the pre-Lenten Sunday of Septuagesima—are the initial Sundays of the Tempus per Annum (“time during the year”), which on the ordinary form calendar is (mis)translated in English as “ordinary time”. These are the Sundays of the year which don’t belong to special liturgical seasons like Advent, Lent, etc.
Each of the Gospels for these Sundays after Epiphany presents a particular manifestation (or “epiphany”) of the Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. On this Third Sunday after Epiphany we recall His manifestation of His divinity by the miracles of curing a leper and a servant paralyzed with palsy, as described in this Sunday’s Gospel (Matthew 8:1-13):
Jesus, with a word, cleanses a leper.
And behold a leper came and adored him, saying: Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus stretching forth his hand, touched him, saying: I will, be thou made clean. And forthwith his leprosy was cleansed. (Matthew 8:2-3)
Jesus cures the centurion’s servant at a distance.
And when he had entered into Capharnaum, there came to him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, and is grieviously tormented. And Jesus saith to him: I will come and heal him. And the centurion making answer, said: Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof: but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. . . . And Jesus said to the centurion: Go, and as thou hast believed, so be it done to thee. And the servant was healed at the same hour. (Matthew 8:5-8,13)
SHELTER AND PEACE IN THE GROTTO OF SANITY
“When the day comes where you bury your head in your hands and say, ‘This cannot be right,’ start your search for the nearest Latin Mass.
“I am talking here about Mass in the ‘extraordinary form,’ the Tridentine Mass, the usus antiquior, the Mass according to the Roman Missal promulgated by St. John XXIII in 1962, the ‘traditional Latin Mass.’
“You will find in the traditional Latin Mass a shelter from the storm, a place to rest from the turmoil. The traditional Latin Mass is a grotto of sanity, where the holy angel from Heaven guards, cherishes, protects, visits, and defends all who are assembled in that place.
“The storm and turmoil of which I speak . . . [continue reading here]
FIRST-SUNDAY BRUNCH AFTER MASS ON FEBRUARY 3

All who attend the Latin Mass are invited to proceed downstairs afterwards for refreshment and camaraderie. The women’s group contact person for any questions is Mary Wilson ().

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LATIN MASS
Knoxville Latin Mass Community (KLMC) expenses in support of Latin liturgy typically average several hundred dollars weekly. This includes a regular KLMC contribution of $200 per week to Holy Ghost Church to support the Latin Mass (and specifically our exemplary sacred music program), plus additional expenses for purchase of vestments, choir support, Latin Mass materials, stipends for visiting priests, and special occasions.
All these expenses are covered solely by donations directly to the KLMC (rather than by the general parish budget). So please use the special addressed Knoxville Latin Mass Community envelopes, or donate online ().
