Photos from this morning's Mass at the outdoor Grotto at.... Assumption Grotto

Each morning, from Spring to Fall, Assumption Grotto's pastor holds his 7:30 a.m. Mass at the outdoor Grotto, weather permitting. 

I was blessed to be there the past two mornings, and got Fr. Perrone's permission to move closer during this morning's Mass so that I could get a better shot.  There is a white cross-bar which partially obstructs the beautiful statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary (seen in the last photo in this set).  But, being at the kneeler which is used for Holy Communion, I was able to get the shots without that bar in the way. 

While in the Ordinary Form we honored St. Clare, the calendar for the 1962 Missal had St. Tiburtius, Martyr, and St. Susanna, Virgin and Martyr.  On August 12th, we honor St. Clare in the 1962 Missal.

Here are a few more pictures...

Not visible in this photo, is a wide kneeler used by the people going up for Holy Communion
