Bishop Boyea says Mass in the Extraordinary Form

Here is something you definitely don't see every day - on Laetare Sunday, our Bishop, His Excellency Earl Boyea, came to say Mass according to the Extraordinary Form in our parish. Before being elevated to the bishopric of Lansing, Bishop Boyea was a proponent of the Traditional Mass as Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit and used to say it monthly at the St. Josaphat-Sweetest Heart of Mart cluster. It was really awesome to be able to assist at an EF Mass said by a bishop. The church was absolutely packed; I spent the whole Mass standing (and kneeling) in the vestibule.

Here are some pictures. The third one is of myself and my daughter greeting the bishop; the fourth one is my wife.
