His Excellency Most Reverend Donald Hying has come to Madison as the diocese’s 5th Bishop. On Monday, 24 June, Vespers was celebrated on the vigil of his installation on 25 June. You can see the ceremony and hear the Bishop’s sermon HERE. In the video skip forward to about 40:00 for the beginning and 1:03:00 for the sermon.
The installation Mass will also be live streamed on Tuesday, 25 June.
I was pleased that the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison provided the vestments for the evening and also for the installation Mass on Tuesday. That means that many of YOU readers have contributed to make these occasions more beautiful. So, in a way, the “mutual enrichment” goes forward.
Here are a few photos from Vespers.
First, a couple shots of the fabric for these vestments being prepared for cutting, some time ago in Rome. 2017…
And now, in 2019 … the dalmatics and antependium are from what we call the “Madison Set”, because the pieces bear the diocesan coat of arms.
We now have 10 chasubles, including the one made for Bp. Morlino with his coat of arms and now the new one just made with Bp. Hying’s arms.
Just unpacked! Thank you, dear readers, for your ongoing support of the TMSM and its work.
CARITAS NUMQUAM EXCIDIT
Gammarelli told me that they are just about out of fabric and they have run out of the trim. If we want to expand this any more (though I’m not sure why) we’ll have to find another supplier.
The set has 7 copes, 10 chasubles and dalmatics (including 2 “plus” sized), canopy and ombrellino. And, if you can imagine, all the chasubles came with all the other pieces needed for Mass, and the copes and dalmatics came with stoles. There are piles of burses and maniples and chalice veils.
The TMSM welcomes Bp. Hying.
Dear readers, please say a prayer for him as soon as you read this? Bishops today have a heavy mandate.
UPDATE 25 June.
VIDEO of the installation Mass is HERE
For the Bishop’s sermon advance to about 1:25:00
It good to see many of the TMSM’s vestments in play today. A few shots. Note: Archbp. Listecki with the pallium… a first for these vestments.
The Apostolic Nuncio.
At last, seated and with the symbols of his office.
