Ark of Mary Fraternity

The Fraternity "Ark of Mary" (Fraternidade Arca de Maria) is a young Brazilian foundation (founded in 2003), comprising a branch of Brothers and Sisters (Slaves of Divine Love, Irmãos e Irmãs Escravas do Divino Amor; they follow the "holy slavery" of the total consecration to Jesus Christ through Mary according to St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort) and a branch of consecrated laypeople. They have houses in Brazil, Mozambique, Portugal, Spain and Italy. By way of our friends of Salvem a Liturgia come these interesting pictures of their founder, Fr. Rodrigo Maria, celebrating Mass in the Ordinary Form in a manner consonant with the hermeneutic of continuity and the mutual enrichment of both forms of Mass desired by the Holy Father.
