Solemn Mass Celebrated Today in Mexico City's Cathedral

From a reader in Mexico comes news of a solemn Mass celebrated in the cathedral church in Mexico City by Fr. Romanosky of the Fraternity of St. Peter:

Today in Mexico City Cathedral a Solemn High Mass was celebrated in the Altar of the kings (an altar behind the High Altar, used rarely, [which] was not affected by the post-conciliar reforms. Its a beautiful altar done in a Mexican Baroque style [Churigueresco]. It is an altar dedicated to sainted kings and queens.


It is a historic occasion since it is the first time a Solemn High Mass is celebrated in the cathedral since the reform. The Low Mass has been celebrated before 5 or 6 times before.

I am attaching a few pictures for the blog, of the Altar, the exterior of the Cathedral, and some of the Mass.

Here are the pictures:
