Solemn Pontifical Mass in Liguria, Italy

Rinascimento Sacro has some beautiful images up from the Solemn Pontifical Mass offered this past weekend, celebrated by the ordinary, Msgr. Mario Oliveri, Bishop of Imperia (Liguria, Italy).

During the rites, seven Franciscan sisters of the Immaculate made their solemn profession.

A view of the complete set of photographs will show the presence of Msgr. Amodeo, an Ambrosian canon of the Cathedral of Milan, the NLM's own Nicola de Grandi, as well as many of the faithful servers from Ss. Trinita in Rome. It looks to have been a glorious occasion.

You can also expect to see more photos of the event from John Sonnen who was one of those at this event.

Here are a few select photos from the event. (All photos are from Rinascimento Sacro.)
