This is from a priest reader:
Attached is a photo of me offering an English Novus Ordo Missae at St. Charles Borromeo Parish, Peoria, AZ at 10:00 a.m. today. We are a "Reform of the Reform/Summorum Pontificum Parish" where all Masses–8 Forma Ordinaria, and 5 Forma Extraordinaria–are celebrated weekly. Thanks be to God! You have many loyal readers from our parish. Blessings to you and your readership in all you do in Restoring the Sacred to our liturgies.
Your Servant, Fr LWG
Here is another. This seems heavily inculturated, but hey! It’s black!
Cincinnati vocations director Father Kyle Schnippel broke out his Sunday best for the 8:30 Mass at the Cathedral this morning:
Since the lady on the right edge of the picture is Mrs. Leonardi, you can guess who the photographer was. (For a glimpse of Padre with Clan Leonardi click here.) After Mass, we grabbed breakfast at the local Big Boy along with friend Jackie and her son. It was a great start to a beautiful day.
Another reader sends:
I am sending a picture of my NO parish priest, Father Christopher Smith in Palmyra Missouri. He wore black today! My pictures weren’t very good, since he is not one to want his picture taken I had to get them during Mass. I am sending you the best one.
He is a wonderful priest & I will still go to Mass in Palmyra, even after the Shrine of St Rose opens in Quincy next week.
Father shouldn’t be so shy. He did a wonderful thing!

Here is Fr.Tcheou of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at the cemetery praying for the deceased on All Souls Day. This is the Catholic cemetery where the bishops and priests of the diocese are buried. Father is seen here sprinkling the graves.
Here is a great shot from a priest reader:
Father Gerald P. Carey, the pastor of St. Paul Parish in Philadelphia, was celebrating the Ordinary Form of the Mass in Latin, a first here at St. Paul. The church was quite full and there were many younger people who had never experienced this Mass in Latin before. Father Carey is hoping to celebrate a Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form for the feast of St. Paul on January 25th.
A very good photo. BLACK TO THE PEOPLE!
