What began as Jewish and then Christian cemeteries, later became temporary places where "The Lord's Supper" or the "Sacrifice" were conducted, and still later became shrines and places of pilgrimage.
This blog, dedicated to the Traditional Latin Mass, hopes to retain the spirit of the Christian Catacombs, where the early Church revered those who had gone before, filling the tombs with beautiful signs and symbols of Christian art--silent testimony to the faith of early Christians.
Though the catacombs are burial places, the symbols and artifacts point to life. That 'great cloud of witnesses' who have gone before still surround us. We are tied to them through time and eternity in the universal embrace of the Holy Catholic Church.
