O Canadensis; Ite ad Joseph!

Just in friends from Richmond Hill where I organised a little Schola for the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary at St. Mary Immaculate Church. A new Altar and Pulpit, Tabernacle returned to the middle of the sanctuary, a new Crucifix, six candles on the Altar, Latin Ordinary, Gregorian chant, "ad orientem" posture in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Here is the Ordo:

Organ Prelude:
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring - J.S. Bach
Choral Prelude:
Great St. Joseph, Son of David
Processional Hymn:
Joseph Be Our Guide and Pattern (Regent Square)
Introit Proper to the Day from the Gregorian Missal
Justus et palma florebit
Kyrie & Gloria
Mass VIII - Missa de Angelis Psalm & Gospel Acclamation:
The Son of David will live forever.
Praise and Glory to You O LORD Jesus Christ
Offertory Antiphon: My fidelity Gregorian Psalm Tone Mode V
Hymn: Te Joseph Celebrant
Mass VIII - Missa de Angelis Communion
Antiphon: Joseph Fili David (Latin) and Psalm (English)
Hymn: Caelitum Joseph Decus (Hymn from Lauds)
See Us LORD, About Your Altar
Recessional Hymn: All
O Joseph Mighty Patron (Aurelia)
Organ Postlude: Te Deum - M.A. Charpentier

As a friend wrote on Facebook, "today is the Feast of St. Joseph, the Patron Saint of Canada, the day we should be celebrating!" (not just St. Patrick).

Yes, St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, Pray for Canada and our Bishops and our Leaders and our People that we may return to the truth of God and His Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Now, what better way to celebrate the rest of this great feast then the gala dinner in honour of the first Real Catholic Man, with another real Catholic man who, according to the Catholic Register gives a "voice to the voiceless."

See you in Kitchener.

So what was the Voris dinner like?

I'll put a post and some pictures up tonight. It was great, over 600 in attendance; good food, nice decor, auction with money raised for WYD pilgrims. Voris spoke for 45 minutes on how great it is to be Catholic and how we are all called to holiness and evangelisation and not to be afraid of being called "nutbars" or as we joked at a private luncheon on Sunday, "Taliban Catholics!"

A great success; now on to Toronto!
