Blessing Of The Chalice...

I'm a bit slow getting the pictures up, partly because I'm not completely back into my blogging stride, but mostly because the photos weren't very good - well, Fr. Tim did insist on standing right in front of the chalice while he was blessing it, and I didn't feel able to march up on to the Sanctuary for a better shot...

I did manage to get a photo of the chalice on the altar before everything kicked off, and I cropped it so the chalice could be seen more clearly...

Looks like a beautiful chalice - a well-deserved jubilee gift. I'm only too envious I can't join you all at Blackfen for Mass tomorrow.

Thanks for the photos!

Now had you been able to SERVE that Mass....

[....you would have seen it, but had no picture! :-D ]

Nice chalice, it reminds me very much of the Sainted Fr. S.'s chalice...now 55+ years old. The Chalice, not Fr. S.

What a beautiful occasion it was. I had never been to a blessing of a Chalice and made sure we all stayed for it.
