Probably quite well over.  I don’t know when Bishop Gorman offered the last Pontifical High Mass, but it had to be before 1969.

The Mass was wonderful.  I had never assisted at one before, and didn’t know quite what to expect, but it was essentially a Solemn High Mass with additional elements according the presence of a bishop.  It lasted about 2 1/2 hours including the introductory processing in of Bishop Schneider and the additional prayers he made before vesting.  It was very beautiful. We arrived an hour early and queued up to get seats in our too small parish church.  Even though there an hour early, there were easily 200 people in line in front of us.  So, we sat towards the back.

Unfortunately, I forgot my phone (after deliberately leaving it charging right by the door specifically so I would NOT forget it) and I had to use my wife’s, which……….is set up very different from mine, had no memory left, and was also low on power.  So, with the pics and video, you get what you get.  Complaining won’t solicit any more, though if you’re on Facebook I think the parish will have professionally shot photos and videos of the event there.  My rather poor stuff below:

WordPress seems to not be liking many of my pics and refuses to upload them.  I may try again later, but I only have so much time and have other topics I’d like to get to today.
