LMS Guide to Holy Communion, Confession, and Baptism during the lockdown

St Charles Borromeo ministering to victims of the plague in Milan
The Latin Mass Society has published these short but comprehensive guides to the Sacraments of Holy Communion, Penance, and Baptism, while getting access to priests is restricted or impossible, in light of the Extraordinary Form and the Traditional Practice and Discipline of the Church.



Holy Communion

What is a perfect act of contrition? What value has watching a live-streamed Mass? When would it be justified to baptise infants in the absence of a priest? Is it possible to gain indulgences if one can't go to Communion? What is the ceremony of 'supplying the ceremonies' after an emergency bapism?

Your questions are answered.

  1. Will you deal with marriage too? There could well be couples whose weddings have been cancelled. Why should they be deprived of the sacrament indefinitely? I'm sure that some advice about how to apply canon 1116 in practice would be welcome.

    1. Weddings can be delayed more easily...

  3. What about baptisms where the words of baptism are pronounced and then the water is immediately poured (or the person immersed)? Is this considered “simultaneous” and therefore valid? Are there any resources which address such things?
