Rorate Caeli

Heartfelt congratulations...

...to the five new priests of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP), ordained yesterday in Nebraska: they are Fr. Gregory Eichman, Fr. Karl Marsolle, Fr. Brian McDonnell, Fr. Kevin O'Neil, and Fr. Kenneth Walker. Congratulations to their families, their professors, their Fraternity, and all who helped them along the way. 

The event was broadcast live at LiveMass, the wonderful apostolate of the FSSP community in Sarasota, Florida (as we annouced earlier this month). If you were not able to watch it, we are sure it will be available in the LiveMass archives shortly.

  6. I am still at a loss as to why EWTN did not carry this, given that they have carried many obscure religious ceremonies. I say "obscure", not to denigrate the holiness of the liturgies, but to point out that such a large ordination ceremony, and in the ancient Rite would seem to call out for a broadcast.

  7. Congratulations to all the new priests!

    I was at the FSSP ordinations a few years ago, it was beautiful. I hope to be able to go again sometime. While watching the video, I saw a number of priests I know.

    Thanks for sharing the video!

    Congratulations to the five newly ordained priest.

    I must say I was a little shocked at the Lincoln Nebraska Cathedral!
    (I have never seen it before.)

    I won't say anything more about the Cathedral other then to state:
    (THE 60'S AND 70'S ARE OVER !)

    DEO GRATIAS!

    With prayes,

    Joseph

    @Barona,scheduling conflicts one reason EWTN may not have carried this (they have carried big FSSP events in the past such as the Seminary consecration) is that it coincided with the The 50th Anniversary Of Our Lady Of The Angels Monastery and had Jubilee Mass at 10am,that day,as well as other commemorating events.

  13. I get to assist at the Masses of the excellent Fr Fryar at Christ the King Chapel Church in Sarasota and Fr. Calvin Goodwin was the spiritual advisor for our Trad Study group in Portland, Maine and so I think that by the end of this day it will be quite clear that when it comes to name-dropping that I am of championship caliber.

    What a beautiful and solemn ceremony that was. compared to which the revolutionary Holy Orders maintain continuity with tradition as effectively as the crummy construction of that Cathedral evinces appreciation of the VIP (Verticality, Permanence, Iconography) standards of classical Catholic construction.

  14. Remember that there are two Fr. Fryars in the FSSP the younger in Florida (also in charge of livemass.org) and the older here with us leading the apostolate in Guadalajara Mexico. Both excellent priests!

    We like to think of them as Fr Fryar Major and Fr Fryar Minor.

  16. Unfortunately I know neither of the Frs. Fryar....but I am good friends with Fr. Lee, who was telling me how he got to "direct" the mass - he got to choose which camera shots to go live. I was present at the ordination - I was very fortunate because I had the chance to serve their Ordination to the Diaconite Mass, so it was great to make it to their priestly ordination as well.

    As for the Cathedral of the Risen Christ (or the Aztec Temple of the Tomb), I won't comment....
