Solemn Pontifical Mass of Nigerian Bishop on His Golden Jubilee

We do not often get to share liturgical images from Africa, and so I was delighted that the NLM was recently contacted about a Solemn Pontifical Mass in the usus antiquior which was offered by Bishop Gregory Ochiagha, bishop emeritus of Orlu Diocese in Nigeria, which was celebrated on the occasion of his Golden Jubilee.

The FSSP, who have a presence in Nigeria, were involved in the Mass and have posted some photos. Here is a selection.
