Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We apologize that our photos are not of their usual quality.  Surely, this was the most beautiful Mass at which we have ever assisted.  The blog administrator chose to follow a gentleman on the highway who had a "Traditional Latin Mass" bumper sticker on his car.  This proved to be unfortunate as he apparently had no better clue how to get to St. Peter's in Merchantville than we did.  Thus, we did not arrive in enough time to procure an advantageous seat for photos.  Nonetheless, we wanted to share with the readers anyway and express our gratitude to Father Robert Pasley and Mater Ecclesiae  for such an exquisite demonstration of love for Our Lady through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form.   Many thanks to Father Anthony Manuppella and the people of St. Peter's Church in Merchantville for hosting this 12th annual Mass in honor of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


  1. Many thanks for the pictures. I don't suppose you have any pictures of our Timber Wolves (the boys and girls who were processing behind the acolytes -- you can see our flag in your final picture right behind the crucifer)?

    Please check out our report of the Mass if you have the time:

  2. Unfortunately, most of the photos of the processions turned out blurry. If you email me I can send you the few I have of the Timber Wolves. I can be reached at I'd be happy to check out your report of the Mass. Thanks for sending the link.
