Solemn Mass of the Vigil of the Assumption in London

This past weekend was marked by two particularly important liturgical events in honor of Our Lady’s Assumption, a solemn Mass on Saturday for the vigil, celebrated at Westminster Cathedral in London, and a pontifical Mass on the feast itself at the cathedral of Philadelphia. We are very grateful to photographer John Aron, and to the Latin Mass Society, for their kind permission to share these beautiful images of the London Mass with our readers. We also thank His Eminence Vincent Cardinal Nichols, the archbishop of Westminster, for his pastoral charity in granting the use of his magnificent cathedral, which, as you can see, was very full indeed for the occasion.

Allison Girone was present for the Mass in Philadelphia, and will be sharing her pictures of that event with us fairly soon. In the meantime, we have already received quite a number of submissions for our upcoming Assumption photopost, and there is still plenty of time to send in more to photopost@newliturgicalmovement.org.

Tradition will always be for the young!
Kudos to Mr Aron for this shot in particular!
