Receiving Clerical Tonsure

On Saturday 22nd October 2016, two of our Brothers, Br Seelos Maria, F.SS.R. and Br Peter Mary, F.SS.R. received the Clerical Tonsure at the Seminary of the Fraternity of St Peter in Nebraska, USA.  Tonsure was received at the hands of Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, bishop emeritus of the diocese of Lincoln, in which the seminary is.

 Our Brothers with the other seminarians who are to receive tonsure, approach the altar.

 The seminarians of the Fraternity of St Peter who are being tonsured also received their cassock in the same ceremony.  Here they kneel around the altar in preparation for Tonsure, while the bishop addresses them.

 During Tonsure, the bishop cuts the hair of each candidate in the points of the Cross.

 Then the bishop clothes them in the Surplice of the cleric.

The same ceremony saw the ordination of a new priest: Fr Insco, F.SS.P.
Our Br Martin Mary, F.SS.R. kneels with another seminarian to cantor the Litany of the Saints, while the candidate for priesthood prostrates himself before the altar.

Congratulations to the tonsured Brothers. Are the Redemptorist brothers considering establishing a Latin Mass Chaplaincy anywhere else in the world, similar to Christchurch, now that you are ordaining more members? There are so many places that desperately need a holy priestly presence like you.
