The Mass in York Minster

Last Saturday, March 26, was the feast of St Margaret Clitheroe, The Pearl of York. The Latin Mass Society was able to arrange a pilgrimage to York and a Mass in the ancient rite in her honour in York Minster. This was the at least the second - possibly the first - Mass in the old cathedral since the reign of Mary Tudor.

ADDENDUM: Nagging thought: York used to have its own rite, different from the Roman and the Sarum usages. I'm told it was very close to the old Carmelite Rite of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It would've been even better, methinks, to have celebrated the old York Rite in its proper home.
