NYC Sunday 6 Feb – TLM Dedication of parish church – Holy Innocents’s, Manhattan (Indulgence)

This Sunday, 6 February at 10 AM, the Church of the Holy Innocents celebrates the 110th anniversary of its consecration by Archbishop Michael Corrigan in 1901.

A special Mass is celebrated for the Anniversary of the Consecration of a Church, the Mass Terribilis est, in white or gold vestments (not the green vestments that would otherwise be worn at Mass for the 5th Sunday after Epiphany).

Vespers for the Consecration of a Church will follow at 3PM.  There will be Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Anyone who attends the Mass or Vespers at the Church of the Holy Innocents on the day when the anniversary of its consecration is celebrated may earn a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.

    In addition to the proper chants, the choir will sing Victoria’s Missa quam pulchri sunt, and the following antiphon for the dedication of a church by St. Hildegard von Bingen:

    O choruscans lux stellarum,
    o splendidissima specialis forma
    regalium nuptiarum,
    o fulgens gemma:
    tu es ornata in alta persona
    que non habet maculatum rugam.
    Tu es etiam socia angelorum
    et civis sanctorum.
    Fuge, fuge speluncam
    antiqui perditoris,
    et veniens veni in palatium regis.

    Manhattan may be the center of secularism and modern Babylon, but as the Apostle Paul wrote, where sin abounds, grace does much more abound.

    ‘Fuge, fuge speluncam, antiqui perditoris, et veniens veni in palatium regis’ I heard those words on a CD I have: ‘Voices of Light’, by the New York-based composer Richard Einhorn.
    He wrote it after viewing the classic silent movie, ‘The Passion of Joan of Arc’ at the Museum of Modern Art.
    The film itself has no ‘official’ score, but his music fits it to a T!
