Byzantine Liturgy pro defunctis...

This past January 2, in London, Holy Liturgy according to the Byzantine rite was sung for the repose of the soul of Fr. Franck Marie Quoëx, S.T.D., who passed away on January 2, 2007.
Fr. Quoëx, a Frenchman ordained in 1992, was a renowned liturgist and a good friend of the celebrant and of many others in Rome and elsewhere, too. He will always be remembered for his holiness. He was a faithful friend and a model priest. He is sorely missed.
Please pray for his soul.

I enjoy your site and frequent it often. I am always curious how you manage to get so many photos, especially during celebrations and mass. Do you ask permission from the priest before take pictures during the mass? It seems as if you use a flash and wondered if you are ever given grief for this. I would think it takes a lot of courage to take these types of photos.

It helps to have a good zoom. Last year I bought two cameras which now makes all the photos 6 or 7 mega pixels. Sometimes I use a flash. In Rome they only get angry at St. Mary Major if you try to take photos during the Mass with the Cardinal, etc. Yes, sometimes I ask permission of clergy.
