Transalpine Redemptorist Deacons

On 30th March our two Subdeacons, Br Martin Mary and Br Peter Mary we ordained to the Diaconate in a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary where they have both been studying.  They were ordained along with seven other seminarians of the Fraternity of Saint Peter.

 The Ordinandi wait pensively for the procession into the church to begin.

 Fr Magdala Maria, F.SS.R. was present representing the Transalpine Redemptorists.  He was Deacon for the ceremony.

His excellency Bishop Joseph Perry conferred the Diaconate.  Fr Magdala Maria takes his place to the bishop's left.

 Having been called forward, the nine Subdeacons kneel and are addressed by the bishop.

They then prostrate themselves before the altar while the Litany of the Saints is chanted.

 Having risen, the bishop prays for them, and blesses them.

Accipe Spiritum sanctum...
Receive the Holy Ghost...
 The Matter of the Sacrament: Bishop Perry lays his right hand upon the head of each candidate...

Accipe Spiritum sanctum...
Receive the Holy Ghost...

Emitte in eos, quaesumus Domine, Spiritum sanctum...
Send forth the Holy Ghost upon them we beseech Thee O Lord...
...and he pronounces the Form of the Sacrament over all while extending his hand.  At this moment the Church was given nine new Deacons, and the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer got two of them!
 
Accipe stolam candidam de manu Dei...
Receive the shining stole from the hand of God... 
The newly ordained Deacon is presented his stole to kiss...

 ...and is then clothed in it by the bishop.

Induat te Dominus indumento salutis...
May the Lord cloth thee with the garment of salvation...
He receives the Dalmatic.

 Accipe stolam candidam de manu Dei...
Receive the shining stole from the hand of God...


 Induat te Dominus indumento salutis...
May the Lord cloth thee with the garment of salvation...
 
Accipe potestatem legendi Evangelium in Ecclesia Dei...
Receive the power of reading the Gospel in the Church of God...
Each Deacon in turn places his hand upon the Evangelarium, the book containing the Gospels of each Mass, from which it is now his duty to chant the Gospel and a solemn Mass.


 Br Peter Mary and Br Martin Mary offer their candles to Bishop Perry.

 Br Peter Mary receives the Pax from Bishop Perry during Mass.

 The ordination complete, our two new Deacons process out of the seminary chapel.


 Continuing the seminary custom, the newly ordained kneel before the image of Our Lady and chant the Salve Regina invoking her protection over their ministry.

Thanks be to God for this, His gift for our Congregation.  May He protect our new Deacons, and our entire Congregation from all harm, and make our work fruitful for the salvation of souls. Amen.
