A STUDENT ATTENDS THE TRADITIONAL lATIN MASS FOR THE FIRST TIME

It was, I feel no shame in saying, magnificent. I cried as smoky incense the rose …

 

                                                           

 

“On a study abroad trip, a professor took us to a Latin Mass ... It was, I feel no shame in saying, magnificent. I cried as the smoky incense rose in the domed pilgrim church in downtown Rome, just blocks away from the Vatican and Piazza Navona. Santissima Trinitŕ dei Pellegrini [photo above] would forever become my spiritual parish church. It was a surreal moment for me. The faith I feigned for so long had become solidified and real. I felt the pangs of regret I am sure my uncle must have felt, finally understanding the time spent away from such beauty. I felt love and devotion that I had never known. The frustration and sorrow I carried since my uncle’s passing began, although I did not know it, to heal. The Latin prayers offered to God gave a glimpse of the eternal. The parishioners, offering their gratitude in prayer, sang in a homogenous union. As I wept on my knees, I, too, was grateful.”

Terrific photos of traditional rite ordination in England

From Fr. John Zulhsdorf (here):

 

At the UK’s best Catholic weekly, the Catholic Herald there are lots of great photos of the recent priestly ordination of a young man in the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) in England by Archbishop Malcolm McMahon of Liverpool.

 

Really… the photos are amazing. Do yourself a favor and go check them out (here). They document in extraordinary quality the whole ritual, from the seldom seen rite of vesting of the bishop:

 

 

. . . on through the Mass:

 

 

The sight of an ordaining bishop, using the traditional Roman Rite, and wearing the pallium is quite something:

 

 

And the archbishop’s cappa magna:

 

 

What’s with all the fancy gear?

 

The priest and bishop are our mediators for the one Mediator. They are, during Holy Mass, both priest who offers the Sacrifice, and also the Sacrificial Victim.

 

The lambs prepared under the old covenant for the day of sacrifice were taken great care of and fussed over… right up to the time the knife slashed their throats open.

 

When you see the priest and bishop in fine vestments, remember the love and gratitude and care with which we treat sacred things and persons and places. We look to them and through them as Moses look, straining, to glimpse the Mystery as God passed by on the other side of the cleft in the rock (cf Exodus 33). They are signs that facilitate the encounter with mystery that is simultaneously frightening and alluring, hard to prepare for and yet vital for our spirits. They help us to prepare, through their beauty and challenge, for our own deaths.
