FIRST THANKSGIVING: First Catholic Mass In America

Happy Thanksgiving from Remnant TV...

Here's a little "TBT" from Michael Matt's RTV archive. An original "Remnant in the Catacombs" video done several Thanksgivings ago.


Down in The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt talks about the real first Thanksgiving in America, which included the first Traditional Latin Mass and took place a full 50 years before the Catholic-bashing pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.

Plus, you won't believe the overtly Christian language used by both Samuel Adams and George Washington in the official kick-off of the national holiday--language which included reference to Jesus Christ and to personal and national repentance for our sins.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at The Remnant.

Please share this video.
