An EF Requiem Mass for Fr Jacques Hamel

Yesterday, the Fraternity of St Joseph the Guardian celebrated a Requiem Mass for Fr Jacques Hamel in their church in La-Londe-Les-Maures, France. I am sure all our readers know that Fr Hamel, an 85-year-old priest, was murdered last Tuesday by Islamic fanatics while he was in the middle of celebrating Mass in a small church near Rouen. I would call to our readers’ attention the palm branch laid upon the catafalque, symbolizing that Fr Hamel was murdered in odium fidei, and may very well soon be formally honored by the Church as a martyr. The full set of pictures may be seen at the FSJC’s Facebook page.
