Dominus Vobiscum, Y'all
Solemn High Mass in Greensboro, North Carolina

Traditional Catholicism in the Deep South. Nothing like Latin with a Southern drawl.

My co-conspirator, Seminarian Philiph G. Johnson of In Caritate Non Ficta fame, has posted the following on his blog -
Solemn High Mass for the External Solemnity of the Sacred Heart

On Sunday, June 21, 2009, Fr. Robert Ferguson, FSSP returned to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Greensboro, NC to offer a Solemn High Mass (Extraordinary Form) to celebrate the External Solemnity of the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In January of 2008 (Feast of the Holy Family), Fr. Ferguson offered the first Traditional Latin Mass in this church in over 40 years. The pastor, Fr. Fidel Melo, kindly invited him back this year.

As you can see, the church is perfectly suited for the Extraordinary Form, as the original high altar is still in place:




The elevation of the Sacred Body of Our Lord:


The elevation of the Precious Blood:

Please swing by Philip's blog and check out the rest of the photos. Inspiring, indeed. And you must admit, Our Lady of Grace is a stunning church! I wish it was in our diocese!

oh, this is my parish church!!! St Pio was/is at Our Lady of Grace church in italy, and being his poor son, I was given the grace to be in a "same" named church in NC. ah, you should see the windows of our church too. Everything here invites one to sacred contemplation.
