The whole atmosphere was one of praying the Mass, rather than getting through it as quickly as possible.
That was enhanced as the Cathedral is celebrating 40 hours of Exposition and Adoration, so the altar was surrounded by beautiful white flowers and candles by the score.
Canon Shield also preached on the Lauda Sion, and in particular the astonishing fact of Christ's love for us being so great.
We are truly blessed to have this Mass available to us in our Cathedral on a regular basis. It would be even better if a few more people came...
