Once again

Did you go to Mass at the Cathedral yesterday (Sunday)? (I did not.)

Cardinal Mahony held a Mass of post-MacArthur Park reconciliation there.

That was nice, but: In a photo in today's Los Angeles Times, right beside the Cardinal was our photo-opportunitying pro-abortion alcalde (mayor), Antonio Villaraigosa.

So: Imagine a Cardinal or Archbishop so devoted to saving the lives of preborn babies that he would say this to the local pro-abortion politicians:

"Oye (listen), stay away from our churches, and your political photo opportunities there, until you repent, reform and become actively pro-life. Until then, no more business as usual! And if you really want to help newcomers to this country, save them from abortion and contraception! I am serious, and Almighty God is serious, about the lives of His little ones."

Well, we can dream, can't we?

Hi, can you help me out? I have to be in Santa Monica for work beginning on Saturday. My hotel is fairly close to both St. Monica and St. Anne parishes. Which should I attend for Sunday Mass? I'm from the Diocese of Lincoln, so I imagine either one could be quite different from what I'm used to back home.

I wouldn't attend St. Monica's...unless you are into liturgical dancing, guitar masses....and cantors who think they are entertainers. Although the church itself is a nice building.....except for the fact that the tabernacle isn't in the sanctuary. Not a very orthodox parish. Not sure about St. Anne's...but can't imagine it being any worse. It might be worth it to drive to St. Victor's in West Hollywood.....about a 15-25 minute drive on Sunday mornings, as they are fairly orthodox doctrinally and least as far as Novus Ordo parishes go.

Dear Sparki,

I'm not familiar with St. Anne's, but I'd give it a try! Hope your stay in Santa Monica is very nice.

Your Bishop and diocese in Lincoln sure sound nice. Glad for you.

St. Monica's tabernacle isn't in the sanctuary? At all?!?!?! So there's no reason to genuflect then?!?!?!? How very odd.

JohnPaul, thanks for the tip, but I won't have a car to drive to West Hollywood. I'll have to walk. I guess I will try for St. Anne's.

Yes, Quintero, we are very blessed in Lincoln. Our bishop is very orthodox, but in a grandfatherly way. He's Wisconsin-born-and-bred, really down to earth and not at all intimidating when you meet him. And such joy! Plus he is such a good shepherd for all our priests.
