We Four Trads
Gentle Reader: You are not seeing things, this photo has been modified from the original in order to satisfy the discomforted. I feel like singing!
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing "let's be jolly!"
Deck the halls with boughs of holly!
[Photo from left to right] Chris, Adoro, Me and my Dad at the entrance to Mary's Chapel in the Church of St. Agnes, St. Paul, Minnesota on November 30th, 2008. We were there to mark the return, after nearly 40 years, of a public Mass (I know some priests have used the '62 Missal at St. Agnes for private Masses inside of those 40 years) following the 1962 Missal.
Friends, you know what a stickler I am for appropriate dress at Holy Mass and I have to say this crew looks pretty well turned out.
Ray was there too but we did not hook up with him until after Mass when we met downstairs for coffee. I meant to take his photo along with longtime family friend, DJC and his wife C, but I have to admit that when I get a chocolate donut with lemon filling in front of my face all coherent thought flees my brain.
Chris has superb photos of the Mass. Adoro and Ray have posts up about their experience and impressions.
I did not take any photos during the Mass itself. If I had taken photos during the Mass, the Altar Boys would've missed all their cues having gone blind by my flash!
I don't know if I will post more about the event or not. The 1962 Mass is not new to me. I attend the EF at Holy Trinity/St. Augustine fairly regularly. But, every Mass is "new",or should I say "REnewed" in a way isn't it?
The larger issue is: I'm tired and it's been a LONG day. Maybe more later....
