I think seeing a few of your biretta project birettas with those seminarians in choir!
[That’s a GREAT point! Thanks for mentioning it. If anyone is wondering what this means: HERE]
I think I’ve been at this too long. My first reaction, instead of appreciating the gift of the Pontifical Mass, was to think “they found some really good candlesticks to use at the catafalque. Finding those are like finding hen’s teeth! And they match the candlesticks on the Altar, with unbleached candles to boot!”

This is what happens when we band together in a Society and work together to get things done.
And they do enhance the gravitas of the moment.
Pardon me for my colorful language, but there is something about black liturgical vestments that are just so badass.
What I like most about these pictures are the large number of young clergy in choir.
Love the birettas – I contributed! Such a great idea.
To the seminarians:
Say the black, do the red,
And put the black upon your head!
“What I like most about these pictures are the large number of young clergy in choir.”
And as sacred ministers!
Those pictures remind me of the beauty of a holy death, and it saddens me to know that the Novus Ordo replacement is so artificial and contrived.
Beautiful pictures; it is nice to see the gratitude shown. Anyway, all of us, when we die, will have either a wonderful requiem celebrated by those left on this earth, or not. For those of us (including me) who are objectively unlikely to have a beautiful funeral, it is worth remembering, I like to think, that Angels are better artists than most of us and don’t miss funerals. They want every humble Christian to get a spectacular funeral, I am sure, and Angels get what they want. Even those of us who have little or no chance at being farewelled with a beautiful funeral get one that is more spectacular than we can imagine, as long as we have even one Angel on our side.
