Yesterday evening, real Corpus Christi, we had a Pontifical Mass at the Throne with a Eucharistic Procession at St. Norbert’s in Roxbury, WI, a beautiful little church in a deeply German area of the diocese.
Here are a few photos to give you a taste of the event.
To put yourself more fully into it, it is about 90°F in the church, no AC, and very humid.
Ecce Sacerdos Magnus, qui in diebus suis placuit Deo…
The painting above the altar was a gift to the parish by King Ludwig of Bavaria.
Note the fans.
Lots of vestments!
The Bishop gives the pax to a newly ordained deacon of the diocese, participating as 2nd Assistant at the Throne.
Just for nice!
The first priests carries the Blessed Sacrament. Note that both our ombrellino and the canopy match our Pontifical set.

Getting the recessional organized. We had the participation of Knights of Columbus and Knights and Dames of the Holy Sepulcher. There were priests in choir from the Society of Jesus the Priest.
It was a great Mass, though we were pretty wilted by the end.
At the end, there was a potluck supper for the congregation.
