Joining in choir were Fathers Bisig, Lawrence, Kemna and Van der Putten FSSP.
Congratulations to Father Marsolle, and let us give thanks to God for him and our four other priests as Paul reminds us in his letter to the Hebrews,
“For every high priest taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins: Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity. And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was. So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.” (Hebrews 5: 1-4)
