St. Dominic by El Greco

St. Dominic by El Greco

According to NLM, the Dominican Rite Masses have recently been celebrated in Hollywood and Seattle. Portland is next with a Mass tomorrow.

As some of my readers will know, the Dominicans have had their own distinctive Mass for an extremely long time and, recently, it has been restored due to the Motu Proprio. 

As you can see on the blog, it is essentially the same TLM all of us know and love, but there are some surprising differences. Note in the first photograph, how the celebrant has pulled his capuce (hood) over his head during the Consecration (?).

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

St. Dominic, pray for us!
