Beautiful, I LOVE the red vestments. Why do so many priests were such awful Gothic minimalistic vestments today?
Stunningly beautiful. Glad to see Catholicism is flourishing in the City of Brotherly Love!!! Thanks Father Z for the nice Friday morning surprise.
For the intentions of the Holy Father, this prayer of the Holy Cross:
Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered,
and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.
As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish;
as wax melts before the fire, so let the demons perish
from the presence of those that love God and sign
themselves with the sign of the Cross, and say in gladness:
Rejoice, most venerable and life-giving Cross of the Lord,
for you drive away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ
Who was crucified on you,
Who went down to Hades and trampled on the
power of the devil, and gave us you, His venerable
Cross, for the driving away of every adversary.
O most venerable and life-giving Cross of the Lord,
help me together with the holy Lady Virgin Theotokos,
and with all the saints, unto the ages. Amen .
Thanks so much for posting this, Fr. Z!
Just beautiful. More vestments like these please. My favorites have a cross on the back. Thank you Father.
