I am getting, finally, to a back log of interesting e-mail form readers:
Thought you’d be interested in some snaps taking during today’s celebration of the Feast of the Holy Name at the Archdiocese of San Francisco’s only weekly scheduled Mass in the Extraordinary Form. Fr. William Young is the celebrant.
We normally get 200-300 people in the pews. The schola is growing.
The Mass is held in the chapel (Most Holy Rosary) of St. Vincent’s boys home in Marin County, California just north of San Francisco.
Our church architecture in every age reveals what our Catholic identity was at the time, how we prayed, what we believed in.
Imagine… this is a chapel for a home for boys back in the day.
How were children valued?
What did Mass mean to those who built this building?
What was sacred then, is sacred now.
We are recovering ourselves and our senses.
