Fr John Zuhlsdorf in London
On Monday Fr John Zuhlsdorf of the WDTPRS (olim 'What Does the Prayer Really Say?') blog was in London, and he celebrated the regular evening Missa Cantata in the church of Corpus Christi, Maidan Lane, which is near Covent Garden.
We had the Mass of the Sunday within the Octave, which is regularly displaced by the feast of the Holy Family but is still the Mass for a ferial day during the week following.
The church is undergoing restoration; the Lady Chapel is currently closed off with plastic sheeting. The 'forward altar' has been removed; it will, however, be replaced, but for the moment it is possible to have, and to view, the Traditional Mass in the church as it was intended by its architect.
