INTRODUCTION

This special post of the Catholic eBooks Project provides:

  1. A partial list of websites that live-stream or upload videos of the Holy Mass or Holy Qurbono/Qurbana or Divine Liturgy, alphabetically grouped under the several Rites the one true Church;
  2. Suggestions on other means of accessing Holy Mass online; and
  3. Resources on exceptional means of observing the Sunday obligation.

This index of resources is offered for the benefit of the faithful who live in areas where authorities have suspended public celebration of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass due to the current pandemic, or who have themselves been quarantined, or who are otherwise unable to hear Holy Mass in person for just and grave reasons.

It must be stressed that hearing the Sacrifice of the Mass in person on the day of the Lord is ordinarily obligatory for all the faithful.[1] Therefore, Catholic Christians who live in places where Holy Mass is still offered but are thinking of suspending physical attendance therein are invited to discern, with prayer and the guidance of their shepherds and teachers, if they have just and grave cause to do so.[2]

Further suggestions and recommendations from our readers would be appreciated. God bless and keep us all.

[1] (On the Sunday obligation, see Canons 1247-1248 of the Code of Canon Law and Canon 881 of the Code of Canons of the Oriental Churches. See also the relevant essays on St. Mary’s Aggie Catholic Blog, Canon Law Made Easy, and In the Light of the Law, as well as the texts listed under the Project’s 12 February 2020 post. On watching Mass on TV, see this essay on Our Sunday Visitor, with the caveat that it seems to have a typo that mistakenly cites the Second rather than the Third Commandment as the basis for the obligation.)

[2] (Some criteria for discernment are offered by Dr. Edward Peters in his essay “Thoughts on the obligation to attend Mass during times of pestilence”. Please note that several bishops have given the faithful under their jurisdiction a dispensation from the obligation to physically attend Holy Mass.)

II. OTHER MEANS OF ACCESSING HOLY MASS ONLINE

In case the faithful cannot accesss the websites above, they can search for the Holy Mass of the relevant day on Youtube, Facebook, Vimeo, &c., where many congregations upload or live-stream videos of the divine liturgy. They may use as a search term, for example, <Catholic Mass 15 March 2020> or <Mass 15 March 2020>, or they may specify the Rite or language of their choice. (They are advised, of course, to make sure that the liturgy they watch is indeed Catholic as many non-Catholics refer to their worship using the same terms.)

III. EXCEPTIONAL MEANS OF SUNDAY OBSERVANCE

The following resources are posted for the consideration of Catholic Christians, subject to the general laws of the one true Church and the particular norms of their several particular and local churches:

A. General Counsels

The law of the Latin Church (Canon 1246 §2) expressly recommends, when attendance at Holy Mass is impossible, participation in a liturgy of the word, or prayer alone, as a family, or in groups of families.

An excellent and concise guide is provided in the essay “Sanctifying the Lord’s Day when we cannot assist at Mass“, posted on Facebook by the Brisbane Oratory in Formation.

B. Spiritual Communion

If the physical reception of Our Lord in Holy Communion is not possible, Spiritual Communion is recommended by many teachers.

C. The Divine Office / Liturgy of the Hours

For those who wish to pray, individually or in groups, the Divine Office or Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Rite, its text may be accessed using the resources listed in our 03 August 2016 post ‘Apps & online texts of the Divine Office (Traditional & Modern) in the Roman Rite‘, which include the following:

    • The Traditional Divine Office of the Roman Rite is available in Latin, English, Magyar (Hungarian), Italian, German), and Polish at Divinum Officium, which was created and designed by the late Laszlo Kiss (+2011), and is administered by The Divinum Officium Project. It may be accessed through PC or through mobile devices. The website also includes a section named Santa Missa, which contains the daily text of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
    • The Liturgy of the Hours in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite is available in Latin and English at the website Universalis.

Additional notes (for those who wish to pray with live-streamed or pre-recorded videos of the Divine Office):

D. Other Prayers

The Latin Church has a treasury of prayers that may be offered by the faithful on Sundays. The texts of various other prayers and meditations may be found under topics A to C in the Project’s page Prayers and Devotions, and in the Project’s posts under the category “Devotions“.

Additional notes (for those who wish to pray with live-streamed or pre-recorded videos of prayers):

Eternal Father, by the Blood of Jesus have mercy; Thou who wouldest not the death of a sinner, but rather that he should be converted and live, grant us through Thy mercy time for penance; that, filled with contrition and penance for our sins, which are the cause of all our evils, we may live in the holy faith, hope, charity, and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ: and do thou, Mary, Refuge of sinners, pray to God and appease Him for us, and obtain for us the grace we ask.
