More Trads of California

A friend who is currently on assignment in the Bay Area sends me a picture of his Sunday Mass locale.

St. Thomas More Chapel (SSPX), San Jose, CA

I offer these glimpses into local trad communities in the hope that anyone who may be searching for a Latin Mass might take hope. Also, I love the portrait of Thomas More hanging in the sanctuary. The original by Hans Holbein the Younger hangs in the Frick Collection on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and is one of my favorite works of portraiture. If you ever have the chance to see it, please do (except they’ll probably make you quadruple vax and triple mask to get in these days).

Happy Sunday, friends! Like the Samaritan leper, do not forget to give thanks to Almighty God for your Catholic faith.

St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, pray for us!
