Regina Coeli Report - December-January 2023: Keeping Festival in the Lord

In this issue of the Regina Coeli Report, we offer a glimpse at how some of these festivals have been honored at the chapels of the Society of Saint Pius X while providing some edifying material on the history of All Saints’ Day, praying for the dead throughout the year, and the importance of Christ’s Kingship according to the words of the Society’s founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

Dear Friends,

The Mystical Body of Our Lord is a supernatural family. As such, its bonds extend beyond the narrow confines of this life. Through the life of Christ dwelling in souls, there is a connection between people living on this earth right now and those who have lived in the past. Those who died with the life of Christ in their souls are still alive, living with the same life of souls in the state of grace on this earth.

Holy Mother Church believes that we form “one body” (1 Cor. 12:12) with the saints in Heaven and the souls in Purgatory, and that we have supernatural means of communicating with them, through Christ. That is why she takes special care, on the first two days of November, to remind us of and reconnect us with the saints of the Church Triumphant and the Poor Souls of the Church Suffering.

Those two days of the years are beautiful ones for the expression of our belief that we are members of a Mystical Body. In this issue, you will find reflections on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, as well as pictures from liturgical celebrations and commemorations of these days in SSPX chapels around the USA. It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead (2 Macc. 12:46), and to pray to the saints.
