Today the annual Traditional Pilgrimage took place which concludes the celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the patron of the Pontifical shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on East 116th Street, New York. Father Chris Salvatori was the celebrant of the missa cantata; Bill Riccio was the organist. In addition to the Latin chant, Italian and French hymns were sung. The devout, largely Haitian, congregation processed into the church on their knees. It was heartening to see how this community has made the celebration of this mass their own! I had hoped, however, to see many more representatives of the New York Traditional Mass community. After all, Our Lady of Mount Carmel is one of three locations (the others being St. Agnes and the late lamented St. Ann’s) where the regular celebration of the Traditional Mass in New York City first resumed in the 1980’s.
(Above) The sanctuary of this church is one of the most extravagantly decorated in New York. The holy image above the altar is currently being restored; a painting was substitued.

(Above) Up to the 1970’s this was one of the most famous Italian parishes in the city. Today other nationalities, such as the Haitians, make up the bulk of the congregation.

Conversing Conversion explores these events in history and hagiography:
500th anniversary of the birth of St.Philip Neri (July 21)
750th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri (May – June)
1000th anniversary Kievan-Russian martyrs SS.Boris & Gleb (July 24)
*Join these renowned speakers for a conference covering the historical-spiritual importance of the Greatest Poet in Italian History; the Eccentric Conversationalist of the Counter Reformation; the First Kiev-Rus Martyrs. What possible connections do they display? What lessons do they convey?
Dante converses with the inhabitants of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. How do his conversations with sinners and saints lead him (and his readers) to “conversion”? His fellow Florentine, Philip Neri walked the streets of Rome striking up conversations with strangers who soon became fast friends. How did their penchant for conversation with God and one another lead to the transformation of Rome? Boris and Gleb were the sons of Prince Vladimir of Kiev whose conversion to Christianity meant the conversion of his nation. How did their shed blood seal the Christianization of the Kievan-Rus and inform Orthodox hagiography? Love and Life, Sin and Mercy, Imagination and Reason…Conversing Conversion.

Today Father Carl Dennis McIntosh, ordained a priest in June for the Diocese of Bridgeport, celebrated his first Solemn Mass according to the 1962 Missal at St. Mary Church, Norwalk. Assisting him were Eric Silva as deacon and Tim Iannacone as subdeacon. Both of these men are seminarians of the Diocese of Bridgeport. Eric Silva was ordained a deacon for the diocese last month. The Mass was the external feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus.
Father McIntosh was ordained by Bishop Frank Caggiano on June 27. At 64, he is the oldest man to be ordained a priest this year in the United States. He is assigned to St. Theresa Church in Trumbull.
Following the Mass, Father McIntosh gave his first priestly blessing to the faithful in the church hall.
