Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form in the Crypt of the Basilica of Lourdes

A lovely Mass in a beautiful little crypt chapel, built in what is called in the Holy Land "crusader architecture."  Many thanks to Fr. William Barker, FSSP of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei for celebrating Sunday Mass for us with such dignity and solemnity.     

This chapel has always been one of my favorite little places to pray in Lourdes.  It has great potential.  Today it is in need of restoration and conservation services - Conrad Schmitt Studios could do wonders here: http://www.conradschmitt.com/.  Might I propose colorful 1890s neo-Gothic stencil work with blue-green ceiling covered with gold stars?  New light fixtures and a matching altar would be nice, too.
