Collecting Information about Live-Streamed Masses

As everyone certainly knows by now, in many, many places around the world, the celebration of public Masses has ceased entirely, or almost entirely, because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Since it is now impossible for so many people to go to Mass, or even to go to a church to pray privately, many churches have begun live-streaming Masses or other liturgical services and prayers. I make bold to encourage as many priests as possible to do this, remembering the words of St Padre Pio (and many other sayings like it from many other Saints), that “the world can live without the sun more easily than it can live without the Mass.” It is important for people to know, when they cannot go to Mass, that it is nevertheless being continuously offered as a propitiatory and efficacious sacrifice for the living and the dead.

It seems like a good idea, therefore, to put together a list of these with appropriate links. Regular live-streams of the Divine Office celebrated in church will also be included. I would ask those who wish to contribute to the list to either leave a note in the combox, or send me an email (gdipippo@newliturgicalmovement.org), with the name of the church, location, and time of the live-streaming, and where to find it (Facebook, YouTube, website etc.). I will update this post as warranted, and periodically change the time of the post so that it moves to the head of the blog for a while. (If readers make a bookmark of the post, the url will not change when it is updated.)

Update: I apologize for the delay in updating this; it turned out to be a surprisingly busy week, all things considered.

Live-Streamed Masses

We start with the FSSP’s LiveMass website, http://www.livemass.net/, which live-streams the Mass daily from 5 different apostolates: Fribourg, Switzerland; Warrington, England; Sarasota, Florida; Guadalajara, Mexico; and Los Angeles, California. The schedules of each individual church are on the website. Update: A reader informs me that the increased comsumes a good deal of bandwidth, which increases the cost of keeping the site functional. Please consider making a donation.

Eastern Rites Update: a reader alerted me to a newly created website, LiveLiturgy.com, a clearing house for links to live-streamed liturgies in the Eastern Rites. The links are grouped into Catholic and Orthodox, European and North American. Many thanks!

Update: A London-based Catholic creative studio called Peter’s House is posting videos daily with priests speaking about the daily Mass readings (OF), offering some spiritual guidance, and leading an act of spiritual communion. Videos will be released at 10:00 (GMT) each day. (The first one, for the feast of St Joseph, featured our own Fr Lawrence Lew.)

The Institute of Christ the King has the webstreams of many of its apostolates in both the United States an Europe listed here: https://www.icrsp.org/direct/mass.htm
