This glorious Votive Mass in Honor of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, was photographed by Dr. Buck Melton. Many thanks for his time and talent in taking these and other glorious pictures! The Order of the Mass can be found a few posts down from this one, including my homily. I noticed Buck didn't take any photos of me preaching. Maybe I was too Joel Osteenish? Or Jerry Falwellish? of Billy Grahamish? or Mega Churchish?
