I’ve made that very trek myself when I was in NYC. There is a sort of mini-pilgrimage waiting on that end of Manhattan.
Father: Thank you for these beautiful photographs. Coming two days before Christmas, they are a joy to behold. Thank you for sharing.
Merry Christmas in advance!
Would you be so kind as to post your homily for midnight Mass on the blog (afterward) so that those of us who still can’t bi-locate can read it?
Or, better yet, put it (or the actual–live–homily) into PODCAzT form so we can hear you saying it? And maybe with some of that lovely music?
We do have an octave…
Looks like a wonderful church for the Traditional Latin Mass–well, that was the mass for which this church was built in the first place, so I suppose it’s no surprise!
Beautiful pictures. Thank you Fr. Z for the pictorial mini-pilgrimmage. The Holy Innocents Church is just beautiful. Merry & blessed Christmas.
Enjoyed these pictures very much, thank-you Father. You really do get around to many places.
Wow, it is a small world! I considered the Cloisters today and headed to the Met instead! The weather was so cold in the city today but the museum and lots of stops at Starbucks made for a great day!
I added a few photos of my day in NYC as well! The tree at the Met is amazing:
Have a blessed Christmas!
That fresco is stunning! What a gorgeous church.
Did you get any details of that round piece of stained glass ? It is Flemish. I wonder if it is from the abbey of Tongerlo, as I have seen other examples of this before (Abbot Anton Tsgroten ?)
Many thanks and a very happy and a holy Christmas.
“On the last stretch I stopped for a moment where Washington stopped on the heights above the river.”
Maybe Washington made a pit stop there, but he quickly had to high-tail it up to White Plains, and then across the Hudson to Fort Lee! The defenders at “Fort Tryon” kept the Brits busy while Washington got the army across the river. I think he actually watched them “surrender” from Fort Lee, after which he retreated through NJ to the woods behind Washington’s Crossing, PA, whence he came back and took Trenton (the wicked Hessians!) and Princeton at Christmas. We got quite a spanking in the City!
Merry Christmas, Fr. Z, from a spot about 30 miles SSE of you!
Thanks for posting these! Memories! I used to take my class there every year when I taught at a Catholic school in Greenwich Village. I always gave them a sort of scavenger hunt about the place so they would actually look at the artifacts, ask questions and get something out of it. They often told me (8th graders) how that was their favorite trip, and we took many! We always picnicked in Fort Tryon Park afterward. We also stopped in to see the incorrupt corpse of Mother Cabrini at the shrine on 191st Street. That was when transportation for school children was free, something the MTA just voted to change, and charge the students….
Neat pictures, Father Z!
Never went to the Cloisters, much less to the Shrine of Mother Cabrini-maybe someday.
Have a ‘MARY CHRIST-MASS’ [as a holy traditional priest in, of all places North Dakota, used to say]….and I hope that we can read [or hear] your homily from tonight’s Mass!
I consider the Cloisters and the Chinese Garden in Portland, Or. among the most beautiful man-made spots in North America.
