EASTER VIGIL @ Cathedral 8pm — a beautiful and event-filled Mass with lots of pictures (’cause it’s the last time I’ll be serving at it).

090411_easter-vigil-11-bellsSometime during the second reading, the power went out and we had to adjust rather quickly.  It was decided to cut out the “bells” (my job) during the singing of the Gloria because it may drown out the singing if the microphones and organ have no power.  Aside, Javier predicted the power would come back when I ran the bells.  I laughed it off until the power actually DID come back during the singing of the Gloria … so … the lights would have come back during the ringing of the bells!  … A wise seminarian reflected on the event after Mass and concluded it was a sign to remind us that “God is in charge of the special effects.”  — Amen!   🙂

Beautiful Mass.  The Lord has Risen, Halleluia!

[Note: the last picture fulfills Ryan’s prophecy: “Don’t let Chris take your picture, or it will end up on his blog.”  — to complete an evening of fulfilled prophecies … 🙂 ]
