On this Friday after Ash Wednesday, at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff, we bade farewell to a founding member of the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison (TMSM). Please, in your goodness, say a prayer for Jacek Cianciara, who died recently. R.I.P.
His Excellency Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino graciously consented to be the celebrant for a Pontifical Requiem at the Throne. A fine choir provided music. Several clerics attended in choro. It was a lovely Mass.
Here are a few stills of the Mass, which was also live streamed.
The Gospel: “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life”
My Lord and my God.
Again, in your kindness, say a prayer for Jacek, who dearly loved Holy Church’s beautiful sacred liturgy.
Also, in your kindness, make a tax deductible donation in his memory to the TMSM. Help us – as quickly as possible – replace our black “starter vestment” set with a set that is truly amazing.
The next Pontifical Requiem will be also at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff, for the 20th anniversary of the death of Fr. Alfred Kunz.
