|The Preparatory Prayers at the Foot of the Altar|
The LMS had planned to offer a High Mass in Westminster Cathedral on 2 March as part of their scheduled Lenten Day of Recollection. In light of the Papal resignation, though, it was decided to offer the Mass as a Votive for the Election of a Pope.
To the left and below are some photos from the Mass, which were taken for inclusion in Westminster Cathedral's magazine. The person taking photos was only available from the beginning of the Mass until the singing of the Gospel, so, sadly, there are no images from that part of the Mass called the 'Mass of the Faithful'.
In His infinite mercy and kindness, may God grant His Church a holy, courageous, and wise Pope.
UPDATE (6.50pm): To view all the photos, please see LMS Chairman Joseph Shaw's Flickr page.
