Gaudete and Rorate Photopost 2017 (Part 3)

We conclude this year’s series of photos of Gaudete Sunday liturgies and Rorate Masses, starting with a new priest’s first Mass at the FSSP’s Roman church, Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini. Fr Michael Baggot, a member of the Legionaries of Christ, was ordained on Saturday, December 16th, at the basilica of St Paul Outside-the-Walls, and celebrated his first Mass in the Traditional Rite the following day, with his parents, family members, and several members of his community present. This was apparently the first time that a Legionary has celebrated his first Mass in the Extraordinary Form; our congratulations to Fr Baggot, to his family and to the Legion. Further down, some more good news from the Univ. of Nebraska Newman Center: the first public Traditional Latin Mass celebrated freely for the students to attend started at 6:30 a.m. on the Saturday between dead week and finals week, and still saw a full church, around 400 students present!

As always, we are very grateful to all those who sent these photos in - continue the work of evangelizing though beauty!
