More from Heiligenkreuz

Just on the day that Shawn posted the pictures of the Good Friday liturgy in the Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz, this same abbey celebrated its priestly ordinations. The ordaining bishop was the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna, Count Christoph Schönborn OP. There were six ordinands, two from Austria and four from Germany.






(Interestingly, the cardinal is wearing not only the pontifical dalmatic, but also the tunicle)







More pictures can be seen here.
