Solemn Mass at Saint Louis Abbey, 1964

Speaking personally, I find it interesting to see photos or watch video from Masses being celebrated in the period around 1963-1967 given all that was occurring around that time. In particular I find it interesting to observe some of the trends of the later Liturgical Movement.

In that vein, here is a video which shows Mass celebrated at Saint Louis Abbey in 1964 by the then-president of Georgetown University, Fr. Edward B. Bunn, S.J. The deacon and subdeacon for the Mass were monks of the abbey, Fr. Timothy Horner, OSB and Fr. Nicholas Walford, OSB.

Some of our readers may recognize the fact that Saint Louis Abbey is that to which the Oratory of Ss. Gregory and Augustine is attached.

I am sure some of you may find it interesting for the same reasons.

The Mass begins at around the 17:00 minute mark.
