Christmas Day


Christmas Mass for me today was High Mass at Santa Teresita Chapel in Duarte. This is the chapel for the hospital run by the Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart. The picture shows the creche after Mass, after most of the people had gone and the main lights were turned off. I hadn't planned on taking pictures so this was just done with the phone; it was a lovelier setting than the phone camera shows.

Alas, this was also our last traditional Mass at Santa Teresita. Apparently the sisters' Mass schedule has changed and in view of the other options for the ancient Gregorian Mass in the area, today's High Mass will be the last for this venue.

If you're in this Archdiocese, the Los Angeles Una Voce website does an excellent job of keeping us up to date on the various locations where the traditional rite is celebrated. You can always find the link on the blogroll to the left under the "Traditional Roman Rite" rubric or you can click here.
