 Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross: St. Paul's, Philadelphia

With the focus having been on Newman's beatification this past week, it is perhaps only too easy to forget two other joyous events we only recently celebrated on September 14th; the anniversary of the implementation of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum and the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross.

One of our readers in Philadelphia pointed us to some beautiful pictures of a Solemn Mass offered on that day in the church of St. Paul's, Philadelphia, which also included a procession and benediction with and veneration of a relic of the True Cross.

The celebrant was the pastor of St. Paul's Church, Fr. Gerald Patrick Carey; the deacon was Fr. Richard McFadden of St. Charles Borromeo Church, Cornwells Heights; and the sub-deacon was Friar David Spencer from the Monastery of Our Lady of Mercy.

Procession with a Relic of the True Cross

We are always delighted to receive photos from our readers of liturgies offered either in the usus antiquior, the modern Roman liturgy, or the various other Western and Eastern rites of the church. Please do continue to send them our way. Your stories help to provide interest and hope to many people.

Mass of Thanksgiving at the Birmingham Oratory 

Further to the photos of the Solemn Vespers recently offered at the Birmingham Oratory, we are also pleased to show some images from the Mass of Thanksgiving for the Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman.

As you will see, the Archbishop of Birmingham, Bernard Longley, was present, as were a number of the Oratorians from the various English oratories.

Mass in Honour of Blessed John Henry Newman, University Church, Dublin

Earlier last month, we presented some images and information on Newman's University Church in Dublin, Ireland. This past September 20th, following the beatification of John Henry Newman, Fr. Gerard Deighan celebrated a Mass in honour of Blessed John Henry Newman in this very same church.

The Mass was celebrated in the usus antiquior and the NLM is pleased to be able to present some photographs from the Mass, as well as the sermon of Fr. Deighan for this occasion. Let us begin with that sermon.

Sermon Preached by Fr. Gerard Deighan

There are 14 steps leading up to this pulpit, and I assure you that with every one of them the preacher’s sense of unworthiness increases. Because this is Blessed John Henry Newman’s pulpit, designed by him, and built by him, and from which he preached – he who was – who is – one of the greatest teachers and preachers of the faith who ever lived. But my sense of inadequacy is matched by a sense of privilege to be here this evening, in Newman’s own church, the day after his beatification.
