Hello fellow MFM third order members. Make your spiritual concerns known public to the Vatican in that you would like to see the Traditional Latin Mass restored in our communities. I heard if three people write similar letters to their diocese Bishop then they would have to report it to the Vatican, for the "Synod of Synodality." By doing this, I hope to help out the Marian Friars Minor as well as other Latin Mass communities and the faithful by making their spiritual concerns known.. Here is a rough draft of my letter. Feel free to use it or parts of it. I would recommend to keep it simple and to the point.

I need help with responding to people's assertions about the TLM. How would you respond to a person who says that someone can be too attached to the TLM or that the TLM can be evil since it is being prioritized over God. Obviously, I do not think these assertions are valid. I think it is objectively pleasing to God due to all its sacred characteristics in it and therefore harmonizes with God as opposed to mere attachment to old liturgy. If someone can help develop the case for the TLM that would be great.

So I believe that the state has the right to use the death penalty if done so justly. But besides the fact that the death penalty is just, as it creates satisfaction for heinous crimes, I heard that is also causes more convicts to make an imperfect act of contrition. Does anyone have some data to show that this is the case? I think that will show why that the death penalty can have spiritual benefits.

St. Pope Pius X was a third order Franciscan and a great saint. Just curious, has anyone taken an oath against modernism?

I mostly use the RSV or RSVCE version; but I am considering using the Douay–Rheims English translation. As for spiritual readings, I like the book True Devotion to Mary by St. Louis de Montfort. I'm also looking for books on scripture. Anyone know any good commentary books on the gospels?

Is it a good idea to advertise the MFM third order in parish bulletins and online? How have you guys been in starting a chapter?

I'm offering a mass intention for our Marian Friars Minor third order. I'm not sure what to put as the specific intention. Any suggestions?
