Incense-sational Corpus Christi Solemn High Mass at Philadelphia's Cathedral Basilica of Sts. Peter & Paul

Cathedral Basilica Sts. Peter & Paul - Philadelphia
 And the glory of the Lord was all around...


This beautiful Mass lifted hearts and minds to God, like the incense that wafted upwards with our prayers.


"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that those who believe in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting." John 3:14


 "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to myself." John 12:32

Fr. James L. Bartoloma, JCL


As John the Baptist recognized Jesus hidden in the womb of Mary, the first tabernacle of the Lord,


so now we recognize Jesus hidden in the Blessed Sacrament, the mystery of our faith.


 Elizabeth leaped for joy in His presence then, as we rejoice in His presence now


for here Jesus pours out His Spirit upon us in this Sacrament of infinite love

"And seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and Jezonias the son of Saaphan stood in the midst of them, that stood before the pictures: and every one had a censer in his hand: and a cloud of smoke went up from the incense."  Ezekiel 8:11
