A kind reader sent me this wonderful news and photo.
I thought you might find it interesting to know that in the Diocese of Birmingham (Alabama) Bishop David Foley (Bishop Emeritus) is now offering a regular monthly High Mass! This has been going on for about the last three months! Unfortunately, the time we have the church and the neighborhood in which the church is located in Birmingham cuts into our attendance, but Bishop Foley seems to really enjoy offering the Tridentine Mass. He has taken joy in showing the altar servers (young men from the University of Alabama) revived relics from the Bishop’s childhood–to include his missal that he got when he entered the minor seminary. In other parts of the diocese, we are experiencing much more success! Fr. Alan Mackey has been offering the Tridentine Mass for some time now and offers the Mass every week in Huntsville in a beautiful church! I’ve included some photos from the Bishop’s latest High Mass and some of Fr. Mackey’s first High Mass (this past Easter) which drew in excess of 400 people! Included from the Bishop’s Mass are picutres of the Asperges, the Introit, and the Consecration.
Well… let’s have just one.
