Rite of Ordination in Rome

1 comment:

  1. There was an ordination in the Extraordinary Rite in St Mary's Cathedral Sydney on 5th May last of Father Sypher FSSP by HE George Cardinal Pell. A beautiful ceremony for which I have found no photos/vid on the internet. Be that as it may the quite disappointing element of this ordination that apart from the priests assisting HE there were only about half a dozen other priests attending in choir. Yet at a Novus Ordo Ordination I had the honor of attending also in St Mary's Cathedral about a year ago there must have been at least 100 priests there to celebrate with the new ordinand. Both telling and sad. Congratulations to all new ordinands, traditional and novus ordo - a priest forever!
