Ours is still a living tradition

I guessed right: with Fr James’ departure to Cleveland, Fr Brannan is back on our roster of celebrants. A living treasure of the church, continuity: a priest from before the council who started celebrating our Mass again during the dark ages of the indult.

He knows how to project his voice in a big church with a humming air conditioner, something a conscientious pre-conciliar priest would know to do.

When Fr James was exclusively our celebrant, Fr Brannan took care of St Michael’s Ordinariate Parish until Fr Ousley was Fr Ousley again.

Mass: Respice, Domine, in testamentum tuum. No commemoration of St Zephyrinus on Sunday in the 1962 Missal.
