Pontifical Mass at Clear Creek

One of our readers sent in news and a quick image from yesterday's Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Benedictine Monastery of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Clear Creek, Oklahoma, celebrated by Bishop Slattery. As many of you know, this is a foundation from the Abbey of Fontgombault in France and celebrates the liturgy in accordance with the usus antiquior.

The reader reports that the Abbot of Fontgombault, Dom Antoine Forgeot, was also present.

Apparently this Mass was also filmed, which could bespeak a simple media presence, or also that the monks determined this was a historic event that might be worth producing on DVD.

Our reader friend also snapped this impromptu image. The NLM will watch out for more formal pictures as well:
