Happy Feast of the Holy Family to everybody. A few photos from generous reader Phil appear below. I had trouble with the lighting inside the Church at and after dusk. Mother Crab’s blog has lots of really great photos, including during the ceremony.

If you missed the Solemn High Mass today for the Feast of the Holy Family, you missed a great sermon by Monsignor R. Michael Schmitz, Vicar General and U.S. Provincial Superior for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.

The Te Deum on Saturday was beautiful, and the reception was also very nice. His Eminence received the faithful for well over two hours before getting a well-earned dinner.
