Pontificial High Mass honoring Pope Benedict XVI at the National Basilica in Washington DC

Today marks 5 years for Pope Benedict XVI. 

It's just starting on EWTN, with Bishop Slattery of Tulsa, Oklahoma in the Extraordinary Form!  Fr. Z is in the broadcast booth. It is the first time that high altar is being used in over 40 years.

If you don't have EWTN, but have a computer with something better than dialup, watch it online.

Got an iPhone? Watch it here on the 3G network or wi-fi:

Please pray for the Holy Father, especially on this day.

EDIT @2:05.... Excellent homily on obedience, after first discussing suffering in Christ. As soon as there is text available, I'll bring it to you or link you to it.  I'm sure Father Z will have it. 

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

I am trying to live blog it... but I keep getting distracted and watching it :)

I do have some quotes for the Sermon.

Ditto about being "distracted" by this Mass. I was suppose to be working and staying off the computer. I thought I could work and listen, but not a chance.

It was very moving.

EWTN was inundated with requests for the homily, so we shall have it soon. I will make a separate post for it because this homily was truly profound and full of things many Catholics have not been taught.

Happy birthday Pope Benedict XVI!
