A few days ago I discovered a great video on You-Tube that shows not only the beauty of the Traditional Carmelite Rite of Mass but also the great site of pilgrimage in Aylesford.
Traditional Latin Catholic Holy High Mass of The Resurrection of our LORD Jesus Christ Son of God, sung by Prior and Carmelite Friars at The Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Simon Stock in Aylesford, Kent, England, with The St. Gabriel Singers, Choirmaster Fr. Wilfred Purney, Father Malachy Lynch O. Carm, who preached the sermon and commentary by Fr. Agnellus Andrew O.F.M., presented for television by David Kennard, BBC TV.
It is celebrated in The liturgical Rite of the Holy Sepulchre, commonly called the Carmelite Rite, that was used by the Canons Regular of the Holy Sepulchre, Carmelites, Hospitallers, Templars, and the other orders founded within the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.
But alas, so many changes have occurred to this place of pilgrimage in the onslaught of Vatican II that the altars of this sanctuary were not spared. You can see the alterations in this newer video below. Let us pray for a restoration of Catholic Tradition including the Traditional Carmelite Rite of Mass, altars properly fixated ad orietem, and truly beautiful houses of God once again.
