L.A. Masses

The above photo shows His Eminence Cardinal Roger M. Mahony celebrating the Eucharistic Liturgy at the 2005 Religious Education Congress in Anaheim.

Anything to report -- good or not so good -- about Mass in the L.A. Archdiocese this past weekend?

Hey, is that on oversized host-loaf in front of the "I'll do it my way, thanks" chalice?

Or perhaps, since it was at the LA Religious Education Conference, it's just a Wicca, eh I mean a wicker basket.

Went to the indult Mass this Sunday at Santa Teresita. By the way, the Los Angeles Chapter of Una Voce is circulating a petition to allow the Tridentine Mass on an every Sunday basis, for Holy Days and weddings and funerals. Anyone interested in signing the petition can download it at

I was back at my regular parish of St. Bartholomew's in Long Beach at 9:30am on Sunday, after a month away (TLM at SJC and the great Masses at St. Peter Chanel in the interim). Anyway, a new priest celebrated Mass and it was as bad as always.

The Confiteor was again absent, as it has been all year at this Mass (the penitential rite is completely skipped routinely). The Nicene Creed was skipped, as it is routinely at this Mass, the excuse being "time" because of the RCIA group hug). The Eucharistic prayer was ad-libbed to the point that I couldn't even figure out which one he was ad-libbing. And after Mass, many parishioners decided that they couldn't walk 30 yards to the hall and they were laughing and joking 40 feet in front of the Tabernacle.

I will be starting my crusade here yet again and hope for the best.

Anonymous must mean the Indult at San Juan Capistrano Mission. They have an 8:00 am Tridentine on Sundays. I hear one must get there very early since it is held in the chapel and doesn't seat many people.
