At first, says Kansas City Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker in an interview with EWTN, it pushed me away. I was like ah this is just, this is just not me. It doesnt go with the world .its just like kind of old school traditional stuff. But then I think that also attracted me because it was so different from the world.
Hes talking about the traditional Latin Mass (TLM), a liturgy which the 23-year-old Butker not only attends, but at which he also regularly serves at the altar.
Its opened my eyes to the tradition of the Faith. You know, with Saint Augustine, with Thomas Aquinas, with all of these great saints, and then seeing that this Mass of the Roman Rite, the Latin Mass has been the Mass for the past 1500 years that all these great saints went to. They were saying the same Latin prayers. Its just very beautiful, you know? I feel very united.

Talk about a shock to the system, seeing this young man compared to most NFL players.
No wonder they won. They’ve got God on their side.
Awesome! Reverence. Sense off the sacred. However, I think he meant to have said that this Latin Mass has been around since the 1500s.
I myself returned to Sunday Mass through the Latin Mass.
No football jerseys, and T*ts hanging out. Not that theres anything wrong with that, but theres another venue for that down the road a piece.
Itroibo ad altari Dei
Those statements come from someone whose game predictions have never come to pass..........Amazing.
I think a lineman quoted the Bible the night they won.
There was the black guy with the Trump shirt.
Now this Christian kicker.
The QB, who is half black wrote on social media 4 years ago that George Zimmerman did nothing wrong. He’s caught heck for it but hasn’t retracted it.
I can’t imagine a better time for a team with a group of guys like this to win the Superbowl.
The NFL ownership, with all its 10s of MILLIONS thrown towards “social awareness” nonsense, couldn’t have lucked out more.
The half time show almost all in Spanish and very slutty looking almost lost me.
But I watched the 2nd half and it was a good game and the good guys won.
For a change.
The Latin Mass, with the priest facing the alter, is about worshipping the Lord. The post Vatican II Mass is about playing to the people.
Assumption Grotto, by any chance?
It’s largely the same as the Roman liturgy of the 6th Century or so. Trent mandated it throughout the Western Church in the 16th Century.
Ad Deum qui letificat juventutem meam
I said those words on a daily basis at 6 am even when I was an engineering grad student.Should have done it with more enthustasm and fervor. Mea culpa, meaculpa, mea maxima culpa. Ideo precor beatem Mariam, semper Virginem,......
Orare pro me...
Fairly good—though I am fairly certain a few of your vowels are off—three in Latin—and one in English :)
I remember when Philly won a few years ago.
At a ceremony at their stadium a day or so later their center said " To all those who didn't think we could win...F**k you!"
It was supposed to be a family event.
I guess that's class in Philly.
I'd be happy if we could annex that corner of the state to Jersey.
The Chiefs, at least some, are a ray of sunshine.
