The Extraordinary Form in Paris

Today, the last Sunday of October, is the Feast of Christ the King on the calendar of the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite. The feast was moved from the end of the post-Pentecost season to the end of the season of Ordinary Time (the last Sunday before Advent) by Pope Paul VI.

We intend, as of this writing, to attend Mass at St. Eugene-St. Cecile (photo credit: wikipedia commons). Just hope we make it on time, because Europe ends "Summer Time" on October 28! We will "fall behind" twice this year--once in October and again in November.

After Mass and lunch, we plan a visit either to the Basilica of St. Denis or to this museum, filled with casts from great churches and cathedrals.
