Mass In A Strange Tongue & Meeting

10 Dec

For this evening, at the Chapel in the Holy Child Jesus Leonard Center in Richmond Hill, Queens, I was at Mass in a Foreign language. The language is called English, which sounds unusual as I usually am at the Tridentine Latin Mass at Holy Innocents in Midtown Manhattan. But the gathering was intimate, amongst the Brothers of Ancient Order of Hibernians Queens Division 14, as it was the Biennial Installation of Officers Meeting.
I usually face Liturgical East along with the Priest who does the same. But this evening, The Priest faced Us(Versus Populum). But, it was the Mass. In anticipation of The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a new feast, promulgated by Pope St John Paul II, St. Juan Diego, was offered this evening by the Very Reverend Father Francis Shannon.

The Brothers gathered for a Meeting and Installation of Officers, followed by a Repast.

Then it was Time to head homeward. And here I write this:

Happy Advent & Happy Christmastide!

Deo Gratias!
