Corpus Christi 2018 Photopost (Part 4)

In addition to a lot of beautiful images (the selection of which among so many is the most difficult part of preparing these,) we have a few special items in our final Corpus Christi photopost: celebrations in London for a new diocesan shrine, two first Masses, and a Missa coram Sanctissimo. As always, our thanks to all those who sent these in, participating in the good work of evangelizing through beauty!

Corpus Christi - London, England
The church had a week-long series of events to mark its official reopening, culminating in a Pontifical High Mass on Corpus Christi, celebrated by His Eminence Vincent Cardinal Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, who officially established it as a Diocesan Shrine dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament. First Vespers and the vigil Mass were celebrated by His Excellency Robert Byrne, Auxiliary Bishop of Birmingham.

First Vespers

Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory - San Jose, California (ICKSP)
The celebrant, Fr Andrew Rapaport, FSSP, was ordained in Nebraska on May 26. Because it was his first Mass at the Oratory, which he often attended when visiting relatives, he gave his First Mass Blessing at the altar rail afterwards.
