Mass Ad Orientem for the Annunciation

This morning I celebrated Mass ad orientem for the Solemnity of the Annunciation, on our historic high altar at Holy Rosary Church. The Mass (which was a Novus Ordo in English) was offered for all the deceased of the parish: for those who sacrificed to buy this altar when the parish was built, those who assisted at Mass celebrated on this altar for about 2/3 of the parish’s history, and those who have admired this beautiful high altar ever since the new altar that faces the congregation was put in place. May all of the parish’s deceased rest in peace.

There was also the possibility of gaining the plenary indulgence with this Mass, since it is part of our Jubilee Celebrations.

"Through Him, with Him, and in Him..."

“Through Him, with Him, and in Him…”

Special thanks to my “official photographer” for snapping a few photos.

    Lovely Altar, Father. I watched the Mass on EWTN, this morning. It was also a beautiful sight. I live in TX., so it was nice to be able to share in some way.
