Mr. Ben Yanke
I would like to invite you and encourage you to assist at the upcoming ordination of three fabulous men for the Diocese of Madison this Friday: Rev. Mr. Vince Brewer, Garret Kau, and Steve Patrica by Bishop Robert Morlino.Readers of this blog would do well to note that Fr. Petrica’s Mass of Thanksgiving (Saturday, 10am at Holy Redeemer) will be a great highlight for the reform of the reform. The Mass itself will be celebrated in Latin, according to the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite, ad orientem. The votive Mass of the Holy Spirit will be celebrated, and the liturgy itself will be sung in latin, with the exception of sung readings in English.
Additionally, local schola director[and BC contributor] Aristotle Esguerra and the available members of the Knights of Divine Mercy Schola will be singing the gregorian propers for the votive Mass.
Yours truly will be acting as principal Master of Ceremonies, assisted by seminarians of the diocese who will be serving.
Finally, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, now in residence in Madison, will be preaching.
Unfortunately, Bishop Morlino will not be celebrating the Mass of Ordination ad orientem, although I’d invite you to discuss it with him afterwards, and show your support for it.
Note well: It is THIS FRIDAY and Saturday.
