Ambrosian rite in Venice

ORBIS CATHOLICVS has some photographs up of the Ambrosian rite Mass I reported upon this past week, and which occurred in the beautiful little church of San Simeon Piccolo in Venice.

Here are just a few of the pictures and a bit of the commentary. There are multiple posts over at Orbis Catholicus so go over there for more of the scoop. I am hopeful to find more actual pictures that might have been taken during the Mass itself. (If anyone has such, or finds such, please let me know.)

The Monsignor (Angelo Amodeo) from Milan who celebrated the venerable rite, preceeded by Ambrosian rite vespers...

From Orbis Catholicus:

Because the Monsignor is a Canon of the Archdiocese of Milan, he is entitled to the privilege of "pontificals." I heard, too, that after Pope Pius XI was elected in 1922, as he was from Milan, he granted the privilege to the canons of the Cathedral of Milan to wear the pectoral cross.

After Mass:

A beautiful shot of the church to leave on:
