I was alerted to an interesting point found in a parish bulletin.
Old Saint Mary’s in Cincinnati provides information about the weekly totals for the collections at Masses. The totals for 26 May were interesting. HERE
Given that the 11 o’clock is in German, the 9:15 is the more likely candidate to be the principle Mass than is the 12:30. Still, there is quite a contrast in the collections at those Sunday Masses…. aren’t there Fathers?
And compare the attendance numbers. The attendance is not exactly high for any of these Masses, but the per capita giving is markedly higher for one mass than for the others.
“But Father! But Father!”, some one is sure to interject. “That’s just one parish. People will send you bulletins that show that the lowest collection of the day was for the ‘Latin Mass’. So there! You hate Vatican II!”
Maybe they will and maybe they won’t.
