Usus Antiquior at Seton Hall

One of our readers, a Catholic university student at Seton Hall University, sent in these photographs from this evening's usus antiquior Mass at that university. The chapel is a temporary setup due to work being done on the chapel proper.

He reports as follows from the Mass:

In attendance were over 50 students, a great many of them seminarians. In his homily Father Grimm stressed the importance of Catholic traditions, stating that the Extraordinary Form is the same Mass of countless saints including Padre Pio and Elizabeth Ann Seton. After Mass students whom never experienced the Extraordinary Form were greatly impressed by the beauty and reverence of the Mass, remarking that they would like to see the Extraordinary Form celebrated on campus more often.
