Laudate Dominum omnes gentes
Laudate eum, omnes populi
Quoniam confirmata est
Super nos misericordia eius
Et veritas, veritas Domini manet, manet in aeternum
Gloria Patri et Filio
Et Spiritui Sancto
Sicut erat in principio
Et nunc, et semper
Et in saecula saeculorum
Amen, Amen, Amen
Praise the Lord, all ye nations,
praise him, all ye peoples.
For his loving mercy
has been bestowed upon us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for eternity.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.

The SSPX offers the Latin Mass every Sunday at 5 pm, in a country where Catholicism is practically dead. Between 2008 and 2011 the number of parishes went from 326 to 48. Attendance at Sunday Mass was 13% in 2021 and, following COVID, is now 2.5%.
