40 Hours, Mass of Deposition - Assumption Grotto

Many readers may be familiar with the Assumption Grotto in Detroit. They recently completed a full 40 Hours Devotion in their parish (which is becoming increasingly rare these days), and well known parishioner Diane Korzeniewski provides us with pictures from the Mass celebrated at the end of the devotions.

Take note of the interesting liturgical situation, not commonly seen: Mass celebrated concurrently with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, ending with Benediction and reposition.

More pictures can be viewed here.

Update: Diane would like to share this PDF with readers who have ceremonial questions regarding the celebration of Mass in the presence of the exposed Blessed Sacrament. There is a discussion of this matter going on in the comments.
