Many thanks, father, for setting this up. I hope SMM will not have to wait another 50 years for a similar celebration of the liturgy.

georgem said...

Wish I could have been there in person, but was with you in spirit. I logged in mentally and timed the significant points I thought you might have reached in the Mass and offered prayers at each. I'm waiting in anticipation for more pix.
Thanks for a courageous and reasoned blog and for dedicating your life to serving God and us.
Congrats and many more fruitful years to come, Fr. God bless you.

Ottaviani said...

Congratulations Fr Ray. The mass looks sublime and just what you would have wanted. I am sad that according to Fr Sean's blog, you did not have this for your ordination but at least some way, you've made up for it.

Now hopefully the sight of a high mass can be a regular occurrence at St Mary Magdalen! You didn't invite Elena Curti to report for this occasion by any chance ;-)

God is so good to have given you to us. I wish you many more years of happiness in your work.

It looks wonderful! But given that you were wearing 'Red Indian' vestments, I was expecting a few feathers stuck in the birettas...

Geometricus said...

Congratulations on 25 years of being a priest. I recently (in late December) celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary, so you were ordained just a few months after my dear wife and I were married. In some ways it seems like just yesterday. Do you feel this way too?

I wish you many more happy years serving the Lord here on earth, and then...forever a priest!

Heather Barrett said...

Hurrah! Congratulations, Father Blake! It does look to have been a glorious day. Many blessings and many more years to you.
