The intention for the March 7th, 2008, First Friday Mass is the repose of the soul of Msgr. John J. Sweeny, pastor emeritus of Our Lady of Peace Shrine in Santa Clara. March 7th, 2008 will be the two-year anniversary of Monsignor's passing. Monsignor Sweeny had offered a monthly Traditional Latin Mass at Our Lady of Peace from 1994 to 2004. His prayers and influence continue to benefit those strongly attached to the traditional usage of the Roman Rite.
