SUNRISE CANDLEMAS IN GWENT and ERGYNG February 2nd 2011 8pm
I left home at 6pm in complete darkness to attend this wonderful ceremony at Belmont Abbey.........
One of the most beautiful of the Christian Masses celebrating the Presentation of the Lord, a Light to Lighten the Gentiles. There is an ommission in the 'Nunc Dimittis at the end,of the word 'Salvation'-a rather important word, but it takes a long time to upload a video so my apologies.
This is a ceremony from a wonderful
and reverent Benedictine House, which does so much to support the Faithful in Monmouthshire.In spite of the 8am start, I was privileged to be present.
