In celebration...


Thanks to Krislynne Lyons for these incredible photos!

On the Feast Of The Exaltation Of The Holy Cross, the implementation of our dear Holy Father's motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, was celebrated with a Solemn High Mass at Holy Family Catholic Church, Columbus. What a joyous evening! Never have the voices of the faithful more loudly and proudly proclaimed the ancient "Credo"..."

Et in unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam...










Upon the altar was the 1607 Pius V Missale Romanum, the Mary Queen of Scots Chalice, a Relic of the True Cross and a vintage ciborium. Our holy priests were adorned in golden vestments from the 19th century. The english readings of the Epistle and Gospel where read from a 1st edition Rheims Bible. How beautifully each of these artifacts complimented the ancient liturgy, so beloved from antiquity!
The two motets, so beautifully rendered by the choir, Jubilate Deo (Mozart) and Adoremus Te Christe (Clemens non Papa), were performed during Holy Communion.

Voices soaring during the recessional, proudly proclaimed:

Holy God, we praise thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before thee;
all on earth thy scepter claim;
all in heaven above adore thee.
Infinite thy vast domain;
everlasting is thy reign.


The celebration that followed allowed the faithful the opportunity to venerate the Relic of the True Cross (to be able to kiss this holy relic...can words describe?!!) On display, as well, were the Missale, Bible and Chalice.

What an evening...what a grateful people...

Kimberly,
I missed reading you for a few days so I'm catching up tonight. I just wanted to tell you how I am so impressed with the information that you give on your blog. You do a beautiful job of reminding us about the daily feasts etc.
I admired your daily plan, listed awhile back. You have my admiration for how well planned it is...the daily 10 minute "tidy" time is a fantastic idea.
God bless you and your family.

Krislynne Lyons says "absolutely!" You can copy and paste or I can email them, if you wish. Let me know...

Thanks for your kind words...the reminders are for me as much as anyone else ;-D The school schedule is working very well. Here's hoping it continues to work as well 3 months from now! God bless you!
