On 1 July, His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, by the grace of God and the Apostolic See Bishop of Madison (aka The Extraordinary Ordinary), sang a Pontifical Mass at the Throne in the Roman Rite’s traditional form.
Holy Mass was offered for the intention of Persecuted Christians around the globe. In addition to the orations for the Most Precious Blood, orations were added from the beautiful Mass “in tempore belli… in time of war”.
His Excellency granted a plenary indulgence, under the normal conditions, to all those who participated.
This Mass occasioned the use, for the first time, of the red silk damask vestments obtained by the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison (501(c)(3)).
Here are some photos, to give you a taste.
