LMS Pilgrimage to the Wirral
Last Saturday the Latin Mass Society held its first pilgrimage to the Shrine Church of SS Peter & Paul & Philomena. We had a truly splendid Mass in this splendid church: high Mass with polyphony, with the help of singers and servers from the St Catherine's Trust Summer School, followed by a spiritual talk from Canon Montjean, the Shrine Custodian, a tour of the church, Benediction with their famous monstrance, and veneration of their relic of St Philomena.
The celebrant at Mass was Canon Thermed; he was assisted by Fr Simon Henry, from the Diocese of Liverpool over the Mersey, as deacon, and the Rev Mr Alex Stewart, a seminarian with the Fraternity of St Peter, who comes from the area, as subdeacon. Canon Amaury Montjean was in choir.
The monster monstrance being raised into position by its special lift, two above, and on its throne, above. Below, we are venerating the relic of St Philomena. If this causes the modernists a burst blood vessel, so much the better.

How odd, were the servers not in their Institute Blue cassocks and capes because this Mass wasn't celebrated by an Institute Canon?ReplyDelete
The celebrant was a member of the Institute: Canon Thermed.Delete
The serving team was from the SCT Summer School, and brought their own cassocks and cottas with them.
Oh I assumed the Canon was a regular diocesean priest! My mistake!Delete
' ... we are venerating the relic of St Philomena. If this causes the modernists a burst blood vessel, so much the better.' I doubt very much if anyone, modernist or otherwise, would burst a blood vessel over this. He would likely only feel bemusement at such superstitious folly. But is this really the mind-set of the movement for restoring the TLM and old style Catholicism? Nothing to do with God or the Church or truth, just a game of ecclesiastical one-upmanship, scoring points against those considered to be enemies?ReplyDelete
