UPDATE 2015-10-28: I’m reposting this from over a year ago for those who could use some post-synod pick-me-up. I just stumbled across it again and was so very encouraged by it.

I was privileged to be in attendance for this most beautiful celebration of the Holy Mass. The schola and choir were outstanding. The church was absolutely beautiful and was decked out with roses. There were multiple organs being played by excellent musicians. The bishop’s homily was so uplifting. The congregation was outstandingly reverent. In the bishop’s closing remarks he stated, “How beautiful is the praise you have given to the the Mother of God. I hope this film goes all over the diocese as an example of fidelity to God, fidelity to worship, and true union with the Mother of God as she leads us to Christ.” A big hats off goes to the A/V team that did the recording and converted it into this high quality video now on youtube, doing their part in the bishop’s request. Now it’s time to do your part. Set some time aside over the next week to watch this video and be sure share it with your friends on facebook.

    The organ recessional is Alexander Guilmant’s “Grand Choeur Dialogue”. All lot of double pedal work.

    Magnificent! Did you notice how Bishop Matano went to the side altar (where I think the Blessed Sacrament is located) to pay his homage before going to the main altar? I wish all priests would do that when they come into a church that does not have a central tabernacle. I was also very impressed by the reverence the Bishop shows during the consecration and handling of the Eucharist.

    My apologies for my mistake above. The composer is actually Eugene Gigout, not Guilmant.
    Here is a pretty fair rendition and with all the double pedals.
