Usus Antiquior in India

The website of Messainlatino.it have some interesting photos up of the usus antiquior celebrated in India. The first, coming from another blog, Te Igitur, shows the weekly Sunday Mass which takes place in the chapel of Saint Anthony School in Chennai, India. (Formerly Madras.)


You'll note here the fact that the Indians remove their footwear within church. Note also how the men and women sit on separate sides of the church.

From the same sources, here are two images of a Mass in what used to be referred to as Bombay, and now Mumbai.
