Due to logistics of time, I went to a different church for Mass last Sunday. I've been wanting to visit this church as I've been thinking of sending my children to this parish's school. I was so happy when I heard the cantor singing songs in Latin. Even though I grew up in the 70's & 80's, I'm more of a conservative, more Orthodox Catholic. I'd like to see the Mass celebrated in a more reverent way. I even would like to see some Communion rails spring up. As it was Respect Life Sunday, the priest gave a pull no punches homily about abortion and how we as a society have lost all respect for life, preborn, born, and the elderly. It is very rare that I will hear a priest speak about anything controversial. I was pleased to hear this as I think that most priests try not to upset anyone during their homily. I wish more priests would incorporate more Church teaching in the homilies rather than blandly talking about "touchy, feely" things.
I think I'll visit this church more often. Maybe it wasn't an aberration.
I think I'm coming down with a cold. I've been lucky so far since it's been making the rounds here since December. Hopefully my Zycam can nip it in the bud.
