What His Hermeneuticalness Is Up To...

It's one thing to put pictures up of people you know. It's quite another when you happen to see photos of people you know in famous places...

Shawn Tribe has put up a post from the Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Lateran Basilica; the Mass was celebrated as part of the Year for Priests Clergy Conference in Rome. Somehow or other, His Hermeneuticalness has ended up in amongst all those Aussie priests, as subdeacon at the Mass! Cool, or what?

Looking at the photos (they are gorgeous) I couldn't help noticing that Fr. Tim is wearing a borrowed alb... either that, or Gamirelli's hadn't quite gotten around to stitching the hem!!

Now I know why Fr Tim took that large suitcase . . . I'm looking forward to seeing the new White High Mass set at Blackfen !

Seriously, though; what a great privilege for him - but also for Blackfen as, unless it was pure chance, he was presumably chosen for the job because of his quality as your Parochus.

Anyway, as you say, it's wonderful to see him in such august company, in the Mother & Mistress of all the Churches of the World.

Dear Mulier Fortis. I echo your comments and Dominic Mary's comments, reference Fr Finigan and his Blackfen Parish. What a magnificent accolade and doesn't it make all Blackfeners so proud and joyous !!! In addition, I bet he's seen some nice "bits" for the Minor Basilica at Blackfen (including the lamp-posts).

Zephyrinus, he might have one or two problems getting the lamp posts through the enhanced security checks at Heathrow...

Dominic Mary said...

Mac;
it's OK - the enhanced security is only for getting ON a flight - not gettng OFF one . . . and in any event,Minor Basilicas surely have at least some degree of Papal Immunity !

The Lateran is just stunningly beautiful, and should be used far more often by the Holy Father. Perhaps we'll just have to wait for good old (well, not very) Fr. Tim to be elected.
