Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.


Wow, beautiful. God bless him.

Funny, pbr, because I’ve actually run across your site several times. I was directed there from the ICRSS site and I just never connected it with you.

But yes, wonderful photos.

I plan to make my first visit to the oratory on Ash Wednesday. These photos only increase my excitement! :smiley:

I realize this is not a popular opinion here, but while I have no problem with ornate liturgical vestments, the cappa magna is not liturgical, and to me is far more about the wearer than giving glory to Jesus.

That is excellent!
