EF Confirmations in Rome on Trinity Sunday

On Trinity Sunday, His Excellency François Bacqué, Titular Archbishop of Gradisca and Apostolic Nuncio, celebrated Confirmations at the F.S.S.P.’s Roman parish, Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, followed by Solemn Pontifical Mass for the parish’s titular feast. Among the Confirmands was the daughter of Dr Donald Prudlo, who has occasionally written for us here at NLM; Dr Prudlo was kind enough to share these photographs with us. In the last one, you can see her wearing a headband on her forehead; the rubrics of the Roman Pontifical prescribe that the Confirmands have their foreheads bound in this fashion “until the Holy Chrism dries or is wiped away.”
