OF Mass in Croatia “Ad Orientem” (and Nobody Died!)

A reader of NLM requested that I post some photos of an Ordinary Form Mass celebrated ad orientem (with generous use of Latin) on Sunday, July 3rd, at the parish of St Nicholas Tavelić in Županja, Croatia. As it didn’t seem particularly newsworthy to me, I was going to decline the request. On second thought, perhaps the publicity will encourage and embolden Latin-rite priests in that part of the world who desire properly oriented worship, but feel intimidated by the panicked reaction to what one learned commentator dubs the Sarah Appeal. Be not afraid! (Photos courtesy of Marko Cunjo Ivančičević)
