Mass at Westminster Cathedral

Last Saturday, on the Vigil of the Assumption, there was a Solemn Mass in Westminster Cathedral on the occasion of the AGM of the Latin Mass Society.  The LMS made special efforts to encourage people to attend, and were not disappointed.  A member of the Cathedral staff commented that he had not seen so many turn out for an event at the cathedral since before Covid!

You can see from this picture how full the benches are.  The size of the attendance is, no doubt, a reaction to the Pope's recent actions to limit the older form of the Mass.  There is no doubt that the faithful still thirst for the Mass of Ages.
