Well now on to the second post about the congress. After a late night (3am) I managed to sleep till 8:15, unfortunately i missed morning benediction. But I had a delightful breakfast with a young seminarian from wagga wagga seminary.
After many interesting talks, we moved off on to buses and headed to St Christopher's Cathedral Canberra.
St Christoper's is a very beautiful cathedral.
The Mass was served by the seminarian's that had come for the congress, thus giving hard working servers like me and JP to have a well earned break. The Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Phillip Wilson , bishop Anthoney Fisher, Archbishop Chaput and host of con-celebrating priests.
I personally don't like the New Roman Style of surplice, looks too much like a rochet.
Here are the Bishops after mass, talking to Aaron Russel, or as we know him indolentserver.
Notice the Pontifical MC's purple cassock. I myself am disappointed due to a lack of assistant deacons or even deacons for such a solemn mass.
Stay tuned , more posts are in the works and for the first time an actual video.
