Celebrating Red Mass in Westminster Cathedral

Original caption: Red Mass celebrated in Westminster Cathedral, London. Red Mass was celebrated in Westminster Cathedral, on October 14th when the attached colour film was taken. Red Mass is the Mass of the Holy Ghost, and dates back to pre-reformation days, and is held every year before the opening of the legal session and is attended by Catholic judges. The judges attend Mass and ask for Blessing and Inspiration from the Holy Ghost on their judgements for the coming year. Red Mass is so called because the colour for the Holy Ghost is red, the vestments worn at the Mass are therefore red. In the film the Archbishop of Westminster, His eminence Cardinal Bernard W. Griffin is seen kneeling at the Genuslex Orium before the High Altar, wearing his scarlet Mozetta.
