In conversation with some priests today, someone asked if anyone saw the Mass from San Fransisco. Of course no one did, we were all busy. The truth was it was not Mass, and it was not on the tele but the radio, and according to one of my parishioners who heard it, it was more sad than gay.
One of our number suggested the BBC ought to look after other Catholic minorities. So why not an Old Rite Mass?
"Low Mass? On Radio?" said one priest who celebrates it often, "It will be; Boing! tatata... mutter, mutter mutter... MUTTER, MUTTER, MUTTER, muttermuttermuttter... ting, ting, ting, muttermutter ting, ting, ting mutter muttermuttermutttermuttermutter muttter muttermuttermuttter.... etc.
I am sure this will offend, not my intention but somethings just aren't BBC radio friendly! Which is good.
Commiserations if you waited for news on this feast of S. Pio, well there is still May 5th!
