Corpus Christi @ IC

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ was celebrated in pretty low key way at IC. Since our application to have a Eucharistic Procession out in the streets was rejected by the police, Father decided to cancel it altogether.

Fr. Marshall and the server knelt before the Holy Eucharist. I forgot to take a pic and only remembered when they were getting up.

Instead, after the morning Mass, the Blessed Sacrament was exposed and adoration continued throughout the day until the Mass in the evening.

People praying before the Blessed Sacrament. This continued throughout the day.

The various groups and ministries each had their turn adoring Our Lord Jesus, including the kids from my class who are about to be confirmed a 2 weeks. Throughout the day, groups can be seen praying, singing and praying the Rosary or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Overall, although without our much hoped for procession, Corpus Christi was celebrated in a dignified and solemn fashion.

i am very delighted to see that Malaysia is soon adopting the black cassock for the servers!

In Australia only the Latin Mass servers are allowed to use the black cassocks. My black cassock will be ready by July 2008.

Good on IC! Live the right Catholism!

New Irish Latin Mass Blog

http://www.catholicheritage.blogspot.com/

A new blog for an ancient Liturgy. The first few posts are self-explanatory. St. Conleth’s Catholic Heritage Association has been working for the provision of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin since 1995. We’d be very glad if you could (a) post about the new blog and (b) link to it.

In particular, we’d be glad if you could bring to the attention of your readers the news that there will be a Walking Pilgrimage for Vocations on Saturday, 12th July, 2008, commencing at 11 a.m. in St. Brigid’s Church, Milltown, County Kildare, Ireland, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (Missal of Blessed John XXIII) for which the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin has granted, under the usual conditions, the Plenary Indulgence for the Pauline Holy Year.

God bless you!
