VIDEO FOLLOW UP: 13 Oct 2017 Pontifical Mass at the Throne @BishopMorlino @MadisonDiocese

We now have some video of the Pontifical Mass at the Throne celebrated by Bishop Robert C. Morlino, the Extraordinary Ordinary of Madison, on 13 October 2017 at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff, WI for the 100th anniversary of the “Miracle of the Sun”.

Wanna watch?   HERE

Two things.

First, the equipment is new and there are still gremlins.  There have been audio problems.   In this video there is no audio until about 15:30. Suddenly, it just came on.  I don’t yet know why.   Also, the audio that there is is poorly balanced.  We haven’t figured out yet what to do with microphones.  We’ll get there.

Second, the sanctuary in this little country church is really small.  As a result we had to adapt a bit.  I chose a Roman solution and parked the sacred ministers on the steps of the altar, which worked well in a pinch.  I only spotted a couple little ritual errors, but nothing of importance.  And His Excellency had us sing a Creed, which usually isn’t part of a 2nd Class Votive Mass, but… HEY!  We believe in God around here.

    Fr. Z great to see that there is an effort to record the Holy Mass from St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff WI. The New Hampshire KofC State Council has a video apostolate with three goals:
    #1 – better educate Catholics in the faith
    #2 – present the truth, beauty and goodness of Catholicism to non-Catholics
    #3 – restore Catholic culture and identify on the local level
    Once you and Fr. Heilman get the video/audio worked out can you make these recordings available on YouTube? If so, we could broadcast them on local community throughout NH and the country. This is a 100% volunteer effort. Other than our annual membership fee to the NH Coalition of Community Media no money is involved in any way. Through our membership in NHCCM we have access to a national content distribution server which allows any other member cable access TV system to download and broadcast these videos on their local community TV system at no charge. If this is something you would be interested in, our email is If any of your readers would like to get involved in the effort to broadcast Catholic programming on their local community TV of cable access system just send us an email.
    Thank you

    [Intriguing. I’ll bring this to Fr. H’s attention.]

    The solemn character of the votive Mass and the reasoning behind having one seem to justify the Credo.
