Deo gratias that the Mass of the Ages was celebrated at the Shrine once again after more than 40 years in exile. The holy and reverent rite, in the beautiful Latin tongue of the universal Catholic Church, was seen and heard once more, at long last.
The huge Shrine, which holds 7,000, was full, and many of the congregation were young Catholics. So much for the anti-Latin Mass propaganda that nobody, especially any young person, could love the Latin Mass.
Bishop Edward Slattery of Tulsa, the celebrant, gave a holy sermon, and you can find it, hear it and read the text of it at Fr. John Zuhlsdorf's excellent blogspot (click on this post's title).
Fr. Zuhlsdorf was a commentator on EWTN's live telecast of the historic Latin Mass. On his blogspot he has a photo of himself with Fr. John Trigilio at dinner afterwards; they look happy indeed, and they deserve to.
Wonder when the Latin Mass will next be celebrated at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels here in ole L.A.? Imagine...
