Today I want to share with you two powerful, two very connected events. Yesterday (Aug 17) was our beloved Father Gregory Schnackenberg O.P.'s final Mass as parochial vicar at St. Patrick's. For those of you who don't know, Father is being sent back to school at Oxford University with the Blackfriars in England. During the Consecration at the epiclesis (action of priest calling down the Holy Spirit) right as Fr. Gregory raised his hands and called on the third person of the Holy Trinity, the thurible immediately started blazing. The fire was over a foot high coming out of the thurifer. On the left is a picture of the thurible I took after Mass. On the right I photoshopped about how big the fire was.
