Non Angli sed angeli?
As usual, it was another stellar Christmas in Rome.
A packed Midnight Mass was celebrated by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter at the well-known Church of Ss. Trinita' dei Pellegrini in Rome's historic center. The chaplain of the F.S.S.P. Rome apostolate sang the Mass and preached. The deacon was an Englishman while the subdeacon was an American. Altar servers hailed from Italy, U.S.A. and Canada. The ceremony was lovely and the choir was frankly the best.
After the Mass all had an opportunity to kneel at the communion rail to reverence this statue of the baby Jesus. With exertion I tried to pray for everyone - including all those faithful Catholics in the far pockets of the world. Thank you to all for your faithfulness and I send my love and prayers from the Urbs Caput Orbis this Christmas as ever!
