Photographs of the Solemn High Mass at the Cathedral Basilica in Philadelphia

In Philadelphia's beautiful Cathedral Basilica, the Latin Mass has returned!

On a beautiful Sunday in June, Trinity Sunday, Fr. Joseph G. Heffernan, FSSP celebrated his first Solemn High Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Sts. Peter & Paul. For us, it was a doubly blessed event as we were married there 23 years ago this June.

It was so moving to see this sublime Mass in this most magnificent Church and to photograph it, with the permission of Fr. Pasley. The Mass came on the heels of the murder of another young FSSP priest, Fr. Walker of Arizona, who had trained a young friend of mine to serve the Latin Mass.  The homilist spoke of him and the priesthood movingly.

Here is a link to all the 59 photos I shot at the Mass. Please take a look.
