Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. John Abberton of this Diocese who died last evening in Munich.
Fr. Abberton was a very devoted priest and learned to say the Old Mass about eleven years ago under the tuition of Fr. Parfitt. He was a member of the Marian Movement of Priests and the diocesan exorcist. He will be missed by many people. May he rest in peace.

Pentecost XI

Apologies for this late post to remind people about Masses this weekend which is the eleventh after Pentecost.

11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart Chapel, Broughton Hall near Skipton  missa cantata
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford

We've just returned from a very hot Germany where we were able to observe the feast of St Ignatius in Cologne. The very fine little church (which looks like it was the chapel of some educational establishment and now defunct) in the Chlodwigplatz district is called Maria Hilf (Maria auxiliatrice) and is under the care of the FSSP.

The liturgy was exactly as it is celebrated at Broughton Hall except that the third confiteor was included which I have seen for many years in Germany along with some sort of overhead projector which shines a hymn number onto the east wall from the choir loft.
This was probably revered as progress in the post-war past and now looks rather quaint just as the third confiteor sounded.
