Last night here in the Diocese of Madison we had Solemn Mass for the Feast of St Andrew and the Sacrament of Confirmation administered in the Traditional Roman Rite by His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, aka the Extraordinary Ordinary.
A few photos.
Mass was, of course, ad orientem, as are all the Masses at this parish, NO and TLM.
We were happy to use the wonderful red set of vestments for which some of you good readers made donations.
We had over 50 confirmands from several states.
Among the confirmation names I saw most frequently as I received the name cards for the bishop were Teresa or Therese and Michael. There were a couple John Pauls. Among the most interesting names were Venantius and Zdzislaw.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is important. Never forget your confirmed character. Ask God to strengthen you through the sacrament when you are challenged or beset. Ask Him to help you bear witness to the Faith. Ask Him for a special measure of gift of Fortitude in your struggle against the world, the flesh and the Devil.
