Saturday night Masses are over and no fires or explosions in any parish near here, will be prepared with smelling salts and duct tape for the AM Masses. :>)

Really the Priests have the hard part, enough with the preparations already, lets get on with it



Just returned from 10:30 mass, all is calm, Actually everyone did fairly well, a lot of ” and alsoooooooo…with your spirit” , but that will improve. Actually Father did quite well, he usually likes to add emphasis to words all the time, this really slowed that down. A few minor mistakes but good heavens the old prayers are rote to him and all priests, it will take time.  The new mass music IMHO tries to be too show tunish, would appreciate some chant, maybe in time.  All in all a good experience, we will survive and thrive
