Christmas 2008 - Midnight Mass in Extraordinary Form at Grotto: Photopost 3

After the altar is incensed, the priest, and other members in the sanctuary are incensed, followed by the faithful. In the photo above, the humeral veil is now draped over the shoulders of the subdeacon who uses it to hold the paten from the close of Offertory until after the Pater Noster.

The priest prays the words of Consecration....

The Elevation of the Host permits all to briefly adore Our Lord in the Eucharist.

The priest consumes the Body of Christ with Deacon and Subdeacon off to either corner, bowed in reverence.

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
