Make the earth resound from Pole to Pole with one cry!

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and honour for ever. Amen.



Southern Pole

Today, the feast of Corpus Christi, a procession was held in honour of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Christchurch, New Zealand.


Holy Mass was celebrated by Fr. Rizzo, F.S.S.P. at the Carmelite convent in Christchurch.


Distributing Holy Communion to the nuns through the grill.


Adoramus te Christe!


The procession leaves the convent chapel...


...and processes around the grounds.












Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation;
to It be glory and honour for ever!



Northern Pole

There was another procession on the other side of the world — Papa Stronsay.


We erected altars around the Monastery.






Scattering flower petals before Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ.












Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation;
to It be glory and honour for ever!

Today's Corpus Christi Mass was the first TLM in which I served at the altar. The first of many more to come.

Adoramus te Domine.

I would really have loved to be with you for this Feastday, but more especially for the one in the Carmelite convent, because I am a member of their Third Order. May God grant abundant blessings to one and all for time and for eternity!

So beautiful. The way Corpus Christ was meant to be celebrated and remembered!!

We are terribly sad that we had to miss it this year. I'm still down with the dreadful vertigo but I see an ENT specialist the day after my birthday. Maybe they can find out what is wrong!

We so hope we didn't insult all of you by not being able to come after making such a big deal about joining you for Corpus Christi. God bless!!!
