Blessing of Vestments

Being Holy Thursday, I thought it appropriate to bless my gold Solemn Mass set in anticipation of our Solemn High Mass on Easter Sunday. You may have seen pictures of me with my two deacons vested for Christmas Mass. Now I have the complete set. Pictures below. When using the Roman Ritual, the book contains both the Latin and the vernacular, however, under Summorum Pontificum, one must use the Latin. The vernacular is present for reference purposes.
