Iconic Liturgical Scenes of November

There is something rather iconic about the image of a priest, vested in black cope, led in procession by a thurifer and crucifer on the winding paths of a graveyard with a train of servers and laity before and behind. Accordingly, I couldn't resist posting these images sent in by Fr. Gregoire Fluet, taken at Old St. Bridget of Kildare Catholic Church in Modus, Connecticut. It is also always rather charming to see these things manifest at our smaller, more rural churches, whether it is in the ancient form or reform of the reform.

This particular event was a Sung Requiem Mass was offered in the usus antiquior as part of the 50th anniversary commemoration of the dedication of the new St. Bridget of Kildare Church, and it was offered in remembrance of all the faithful departed of the parish.

Seminarians of Holy Apostles Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut assisted in the Mass.
