Lauda Sion Salvatorem

Happy Corpus Christi - to those who keep it today; Thursday is the day of the Holy Eucharist.
Today being the first Thursday in the year for Priests a special indulgence can be gained.
To obtain the indulgence the faithful must attend Mass in an oratory or Church and offer prayers to "Jesus Christ, supreme and eternal Priest, for the priests of the Church, or perform any good work to sanctify and mould them to his heart."

The conditions for the faithful for earning a plenary indulgence are to have gone to confession and prayed for the intentions designated by the Pope.

Tonight we have our Extraordinary Form Missa Cantata and an attempt at a procession around the nearby streets pray it all goes well. If you want to join us it is at 8pm.

No 'attempt' about it, Father : it was a splendid occasion, which I feel greatly privileged to have assisted in, and which I believe must have given much pleasure to our Blessed Lord.
Many Thanks for inviting us to share it with you.
