L.A. Masses

Did Mass in your parish look anything like the horrid cover of this infamous booklet?

As a matter of fact, it DID!

Well, if you substitute the Press-On-Claws sportin' June Taylor Dancer holding the oven baked Play-Do Crucifix, with an Altar Boy carrying a gilded Crucifix...

If you substitute the green clad Sister Mary Polyester who appears to be ready to bonk the chick in front of her right in the back of her head with a rather humoungus edition of "Rog's Big Book Of Spells", with another Altar Boy...

If you substitute the (purposely?) almost hidden androgynous individual waaaaaaaaaaay in the back, with a Catholic priest, Biretta and all, then yes! It looked exactly where I attended Mass today!

My family and I went to St. Margaret Mary in Oakland for the Tridentine Mass. I was elated! There were some young people making their First Communion, with a homily by Fr. Wiener of the Institute of Christ the King explaining why Christ is the King of the Universe (Today is the Feast of Christ the King in the Tridentine Calendar, but I suppose most of you know that!). It is so refreshing to see a homily that is not dumbed down for the masses or because there are children present.

Is the LA Archdiocese plagued by these ribbon banners? They are all over here in Monterey. At Oakland they di have a small banner at the front of the procession, but it was embroidered with an image of Christ the King. My wife says she was always bothered by ribbon banners, but could not explain why. now today she says it was because they don't represent anything. An embroidered banner with Christ the King tells you what we are celebrating.

Fr. Wiener is always so reverent in his celebration of the Holy Mass. The Chilren's Choir could make you cry, they are so good.

We travel two hours each way to go to this Mass with gas priced the way it is, but it is well worth the time and effort to go. I feel dismayed that my parish of 33 years, 5 minutes away is getting (is?) so irreverant.

Have a blessed Feast of Christ the King, and a blessed All Hallows Eve, All Saints, and Day of the Dead (All Souls)!

Pathetic what passes for Catholic these days.

"Gather Faithfully Together"??? What is that supposed to mean? More Mahoneyisms, I guess.
