Our Lady of the Taper

Fr Jason at the Welsh National Shrine of Our Lady of the Taper in Cardigan has a regular TLM at the shrine which is well attended. The photos are from the Palm Sunday Mass at the shrine. (The website tells the story of the shrine.)

Latin is particularly helpful in Wales where many people have Welsh as their first language and all signs have to be bilingual. The use of the universal language of the Church overcomes the sensitive question of the vernacular.

Fr Jason also tells of the now regular Sunday TLM at Lourdes which he came across on a recent pilgrimage. He also saw a confessional that advertised both rites for the sacrament.
