Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form Photos
The following photos are from our recent Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form. The celebrant was Bishop Francis Reiss, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. This is the first time that a bishop has celebrated Baptism according to the Old Rite since the liturgical reforms.
For the first part of the Baptism, the Bishop is vested in purple. This is the portion where Exorcisms are performed and various other rites and prayers before the actual Baptism.
