I am sure that many of you had the chance to hear Holy Mass on the Feast of Ascension THURSDAY, in either the older, traditional Roman Rite of Holy Mother our Catholic Church or in the new-fangled rite.
For our part, in Madison, His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino (aka The Extraordinary Ordinary) celebrated for us a Pontifical Mass at the Throne.
For the sacred ministers we had the Vicar General, the Judicial Vicar, the Director of Vocations and two pastors of parishes who dedicated their time and effort.
Antiphon at the Entrance of the Bishop: Sacerdos et Pontifex, mode I
Ordinary of the Mass:
KSBA: Missa Simplex a 3, Aristotle A. Esguerra (sung by the students and friends of the Holy Family Homeschoolers)
Proper: Gregorian of the day (sung by the Knights of Divine Mercy Schola)
Antiphon after the Last Gospel: Regina Caeli, simple tone
Hymn at the Recession: “Come, Holy Ghost”
The bishop stayed for a while an greeted people as they came out of church.
The next Pontifical Mass on the Schedule is 1 July, Feast of the Most Precious Blood. The new RED Pontifical Set will be used.
Please contribute to the making of our Red vestments. Click HERE I had a note from Gammarelli that they are almost ready!
