Feast of Ss. Peter and Paul in Ss. Trinita, Rome

The Roman usus antiquior parish has some new photos up from yesterday's feast of Ss. Peter and Paul -- and as a way of encouragement, I must say that I do hope that we will continue to see regular images and photographs from this very most important apostolate.

As always, a selection of some of the very best.

A lovely red frontal attached to the altar. I photographed this frontal while there. Ss. Trinita is blessed with a good selection of red, purple and white/gold stretched frontals that attach to the high altar.

They do not, however, have a green antipendium, so if someone is looking to put a donation toward something of particular liturgical value, this would be a marvelous way to the contribute to the liturgy in the Roman parish. If that is of interest to you, see this post to see how you can donate toward this or other important and necessary liturgical projects there.

(I photographed this set while in Rome as well. They believe they are from the 1600's. In case you wonder, the tassles detach for the purpose of storage.)

I certainly look forward to the day I can return to Ss. Trinita. I would encourage anyone who is in Rome now, or will be, to make certain to go there and make this a part of your Roman travels and pilgrimage. You will not be disappointed.

I'd encourage this also of those more particularly focused upon the reform of the reform, for these things have a relevance to all of us concerned with our liturgical history and tradition and the broader project of re-enchanting parish liturgical practice.
