Rorate Caeli

Big Mass in the Big Apple

The bad news is only one priest was ordained for the Archdiocese of New York this year.

The good news is that priest offered a traditional Latin Missa Solemnis as his first Mass.

The Society of Saint Hugh of Cluny has photos here.

Note the homilist -- an extremely rare appearance by an Opus Dei priest at a traditional Latin Mass -- in this case, the vice secretary.

Let us pray for the Reverend Father Patric D'Arcy and for many more priests to offer the traditional sacraments.  Mary, queen of the clergy, pray for us, pray for our priests, religious and deacons. Obtain for us many more!
