An Ordination and First Mass - Silverstream Priory

When I see reports of ordinations such as the one I'm covering here, it always warms my heart to see more Masses celebrated with a spirit of continuity, along with beautiful vestments, and even beautiful worship aids. Dom Benedict Andersen, OSB, of Silverstream Priory, was ordained in the Ordinary Form on the feast of All Saints in Ireland, and celebrated his first Mass in the Extraordinary Form the following day. Congratulations to Dom Benedict on the occasion of his recent ordination to the priesthood.
Another often neglected area for beauty is the worship aid. They are often desired for special Masses. I highly commend him for the attention to detail that was paid to the beauty of the worship aids. Below the liturgy photos, you can see an example of some of the beautiful pages, and in particular, beautiful typesetting of the chant.
