You have probably heard stories about how people hid their sacred objects in time of war. Bells were buried, books and vessels walled up behind pictures, etc. Or how revolutionaries covered images over which served to preserve them.
Unbelievable find! In Bremerton, WA the EF Mass has returned to Our Lady Star of the Sea after 40 years. Monsignor had the foresight before he died to have the old unused vestments properly stored.
Recently we uncovered this fiddle-back chausuble (part of a perfect Solemn High Mass set) which remained in use after the ‘changes’, post Vatican II, by being sewn to a TABLECLOTH! They actually did an exceptionally good job. Soon it will be tailored back to proper condition.
I received this by e-mail.
