HK did me a solid
« on: July 29, 2019, 12:03:49 AM »
Writing from DC, pretty pooped.  Our own HK came down from DC to serve as sub Deacon at my daughter's wedding at St. Rita's.  It was a Solemn High Mass.  Ole HK delivered one heck of a chant for the epistle and the laity were blown away.  He also was highly organized and took care of us.  My daughter was using diocesan priests for priest and deacon.  They were green and needed help.  It's cool that they love the TLM and we are winning people to the cause, but they were green, and that is where HK stepped up.  He put his heart into it and it was truly a solemn and pious Mass.

So I'm publicly thanking him for his efforts.  If you need help with a schola or even need a subdeacon, send him a PM and he might be able to help.

It was also cool to have a trad meet up and enjoy a few beers.

Thanks again HK.

How wonderful! (pictures or it didn't happen  ::) ) HK is the best.

Congratulations on your daughter's wedding.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

I was immensely grateful to be a part of it. The wedding reception was the most enjoyable one I've ever attended in my life. I can't remember the last time I saw a whole family with the Catholic faith so deeply ingrained in their DNA: dad, children, uncles, grandpa. james03's daughter is full of zeal and was very committed to the idea of the solemn nuptial Mass. Her brothers served the altar with me as MC and thurifer and did a great job keeping the newbie priests in line.

Also, you should have seen the father/daughter dance. james03 has got moves.

Thank you Harlekin King for that last post; my next post (before reading yours) was going to be: Who is HK?
Congratulations James on your daughter's wedding; Many Happy Years!

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit."

I hope james03 has a cabinet full of these mugs. He would deserve every single one of them.

I thought that St. Rita's no longer allowed outside priests or non parishioners for weddings.

The priest who officiated the wedding and celebrated the Mass is a parochial vicar there. The groom is, I believe, a parishioner. So that's all covered.

God bless you, James and daughter! I'll continue praying for your wife, but I'll bet she is already looking down with additional joy and prayers!
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!

First look at the dress.  We'll see if this link thing works.

Very nice photos James.  Swing dancing even, woo hoo.
