There's a pretty good chance that I am the most blessed(not bless-ed) priest in the world. I am given the privilege of being part of some extraordinary things.
This evening, at one of my two parishes (St. Margaret in Beverly Farms), I had the privilege of concelebrating Mass on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the context of that Mass--offered by Fr. Scott Hurd, Vicar General of the Anglican Ordinariate in the United States and a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC--my friend and brother in the Faith, Jurgen Liias was received into the Catholic Church and Confirmed. The Mass was attended by Anglicans who have been the beneficiaries of Jurgen's Anglican ministry and by Catholics from all over who packed the church in joyful celebration of Jurgen's reception into the Catholic Church...
Please do read the entire post, an uplifting and encouraging message.

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this Mass on Mary-Day with several other members of the Anglican Use congregation of St. Athanasius in Brookline, and recorded the Mass. You are welcome to view the video on YouTube. This was an Ordinary Form Mass, as it was the Holy Day Mass for the parish, but the music was thoroughly Anglican.
