Memorial Day 2006 at Assumption Grotto

Our good friends at St. Cyril & Methodius will appreciate this first picture.

"As the rising sun set the stained-glass windows before us aglow, the priest led us into the Eucharistic Prayer...."

Perhaps this picture illustrates what was on my mind when I wrote that statement in my testimonial on the Mass at Grotto in the article, "Unconditional Worship in the God-Centered Mass" in the April 2006 issue of Homiletic and Pastoral Review.

The Day started with the usual 7:30am Mass, celebrated ad orientem at the low, center altar, as it is always done on weekdays and Saturday mornings. The Associate Pastor, Fr. John is celebrating.

We had a flag-raising, with bugler, followed by a procession to the outdoor Grotto.

I have more pictures to share, but blogger is having server problems. Over the next few days I'll be sharing more, but tomorrow I may not have time.
