Tradition is for the Young (18) - Card. Burke Celebrates Pontifical Mass in Scotland

On the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Una Voce Scotland hosted H.E. Raymond Cardinal Burke for the celebration of a Pontifical High Mass at the church of the Immaculate Heart in the Balornock district of Glasgow – how better to mark the 12th anniversary of the implementation of Summorum Pontificum! Once again, we should all find it very encouraging to see how young the people are who made the effort and committment to put together this kind of ceremony, which requires a good amount of work and rehearsal. This is plainly not based in nostalgia, but a real love for the richness and beauty of our Catholic liturgical tradition. (Our thanks to Una Voce Scotland for sharing with is these photos by Mr Matthew Lukowski.)

The genuflection at the words of the Epistle (Phil. 2, 5-11), “that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth:”
Tradition will always be for the young!
The blessing of chalice and paten, which was done before the Mass.
