Traditional Mass Celebrated in Aberdeen

On Saturday 19th of October, we had the pleasure of celebrating the first official Traditional Mass on the Aberdeen diocese mainland in recent years.  The Mass was celebrated by Very Rev Fr. Michael Mary, F.SS.R. in the chapel of Blairs College (St Mary's College) in Aberdeen.  The college was a junior seminary from 1829 to 1986.  The college chapel is very beautiful and provides a wonderful venue for the Traditional Mass.



Fr. Michael Mary sang the Mass, with Brs Jean Marie and Martin Mary serving.

Preaching on the Three Hail Marys.



We are happy to announce that the next Mass will be celebrated at Blairs College on Saturday 16th of November, the feast of St Margaret, secondary patron of Scotland.  All are most welcome to attend the location can be found here.

I'm very happy for you! May many more masses on the Diocesan mainland follow in the years to come.

Oh, Thank God.

May there be many more such Masses on the Scottish Mainland.

Deo Gratias.

What exactly do you mean by "preaching on the three Hail Marys?" I don't understand the reference.

Konstantin said...

It's a devotion of saying three Hail Mary's when rising and before going to bed, preferably lying on the floor, to be preserved from mortal sin that day, especially regarding purity. You should start it, really, it's very easy - just say three Hail Mary's in the morning and in the evening!

What an absolutely gorgeous venue for the Traditional Latin Mass. Thanks for the pictures.

Konstantin, it's not easy when you have sliding kneecaps, as I do. I am prone to falling, and when I fall on the floor, I can't get up and have to crawl to the telephone to call 911 for help in getting up!

Konstantin said...

Jack, I'm sure the Blessed Virgin and Our Lord will accept the prayer when you say it in a posture that is convenient to you.

Jack, we should adopt whatever position of prayer we are physically capable of. If that position is sitting, then that is fine. When Konstantin says that the Three Hail Marys should be preferably offered lying prostrate on the floor, he is only talking about those who are physically able to do so. It is the prayer which is important and the intention with which it is offered, not the physical position we are in. May God bless you.
