Bishop's Visit

Sorry about the long time between posts. I only recently managed to track down the photo's that the father of one of our servers took of the bishop's visit to the latin mass comunity.

The visit was for a low mass and confirmations. In my honest opinion it was very rushed and unprepared for. Since it is the latin mass and the rubrics give a quite clear "program" for the visit, I find the idea to follow only certin rubics is like eating half a pie, there still that other half that tastes half as good.

But the value of having a bishop even visit the latin mass here in brisbane is still price-less.

Adore 2006

Sorry about the week of no posts. I was kind of busy with finishing year 10, yea no more school for this year. Right now that I got that out of the way, I can continue on this post.

Since this years ADORE 2006 youth congress was held in Brisbane, I have had a great spiritually boost from meeting the alliance of the holy family and most especially Fr Edgardo Arellano. I was extremely privileged to go to such a great youth congress and to meet so many other young orthodox Catholics. Meeting all those young orthodox Catholics of Australia did wonders to my soul.

Many momentous occasions came from this congress, I’ll list a few:
1) For the first time in my life I put on a cassock and surplice
2) I meet Fr Jordan a really holy priest from up here
3) I learn in more depth about the Latin mass comuminty up here and was finally inspired to go to the Latin mass.
4) Being in a Eucharist procession through the streets of Brisbane.
5) Joining the youth movement of the Mary help of Christians crusade (MHCC)

I can out sum up with words of inspiring this event was to me. I also made friends with the Oblate Apostles of the two hearts (O.A.T.H.) a clerical order of brothers and priests.
I learnt so much from them on the liturgy and I finally perfected my basic serve so that I could move on the being thurifler and finally MC.

Here are just a few photos from the mass on Saturday during the congress.

Here is the entrance procession of the mass.

Here is a photo of the procession throught the streets of brisbane.

This is the next day after the congress for a mass of thanksgiving at the Bowenhills church.
