Visit of Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P.

Last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
we had the pleasure of a visit from Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P.
of Blackfriars, Cambridge.
Here he is seen celebrating Holy Mass for the community
according to the Dominican Rite.

In this Rite,
the chalice is prepared with wine and water before
the prayers at the foot of the altar.

A third candle is placed on the altar after the Offertory.

The Elevation.

The priest's arms are fully extended for the
Unde et memores

after the Consecration.

Reception of Holy Communion.

Also present were a private retreatant (far left) ...

and an aspirant exploring his vocation.

Fr. Nichols is a noted theologian who has written many very well received books, including one on the theology of our Holy Father. What an amazing experience to have him with you. What a glorious continuation of the Catholic traditions of intellectual leadership and undiminished faith.

This was very interesting! I had no idea there was a Dominican rite.

And another aspirant!! :-D

The Dominican Rite Mass is so awesome, really quite a piece of living History.

I met Fr Aidan in 2003 while on a retreat in France after my reversion to the Catholic Faith. He was a huge help in discovering my vocation. God bless you.

I really enjoyed Fr. Nichols' book on "Rome and the Eastern Churches". Thanks for sharing these photos!
