Feast of the Assumption and Special Visitors

Yesterday, Saturday the 15th August we celebrated the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin in a very special way. We had a Solemn High Mass and a special visitor, Msgr. McDonald from the diocese of Aberdeen who arrived on Papa Stronsay on Friday and will leave us on Monday.


Br. Jean Marie, F.SS.R. was Sub Deacon for the Mass.


My Lord and my God!


Pax tecum.


Msgr. McDonald after Mass.


We also had our annual bonfire and barbecue, this year in honour of our Lady's Assumption. Monsignor was asked to do the honours.


Fr. Michael Mary, F.SS.R. blessed the fire.




When everything had come to an end, everyone made their way back to the waiting Saint Alphonsus...



...and sailed home. We hope everyone had a happy and blessed feast day.

Dear Rev. Fr. Michael Mary, F.SS.R.

The simplest things are the best and surely the most appreciated by God.

What a great Mass has honoured the Virgin Mary in the day of Her Assumption
and what a great Feast has risen all your Friends' spirits !

My prayers are with you
God bless
A.B.

Such beautiful images, as always. Nice, too, to see the contact between the F.SS.R. and diocesan priests. SSPX take note!
