The 3-Minute Mass

Well, not really. This is a video which compresses images from a Mass celebrated by Msgr Andrew Burnham at St. Mary Magdalen, Brighton, for the members of the Association of Latin Liturgy. The Reverend Mr. James Bradley served as the Deacon of the Mass.

This was celebrated on the Commemoration of St. Theresa of Avila, and I include it here, not only because the images are beautiful, but it demonstrates that the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is taking its place within the wider Catholic Church, and isn't "stuck off in a corner." As more Ordinariates are established, it will be important for them to be faithful in preserving the Anglican patrimony, but not in a way so exclusive that they appear to remain separated from the daily life of the Catholic Church.
