The Feast of Saint Matthias

Extraordinary, in every sense

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 07/11/17

The curious might want to check out the video above, of recent FSSP ordinations— the first ordinations in the Extraordinary Form in decades in the United Kingdom.

The celebrant is Archbishop Malcom McMahon of Liverpool.

And, as an added bonus, you get to see the cappa magna in action.

Rorate Caeli notes:

The growth of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) has been well known. This year, however, was a record-setter for the Fraternity as it ordained 19 young men into the priesthood — it’s most ever in a single year.
