For your Just Too Cool file and your TEOTWAWKI file!

For your Just Too Cool file and your TEOTWAWKI file for you more ambitious Catholic preppers.

Mass from a church truck!  A mobile chapel.  And it’s a Solemn Mass, to boot!

If I remember, didn’t Aid To The Church In Need do something like this too?

Pretty soon we might be reduced to this, after all the hate groups have sued the Church out of their property in most places.  But then the Obama Administration in its 4th term would then send his special Domestic Security Force to arrest people for unlawful assembly and the crime of not confining religion to behind closed doors.

    Fatima, truth or just an incredible coincidence? At this hour, it is late.

  2. John Woolley says:

    Yes! A few years back, Aid to the Church in Need gave several “boat chapels” for use on the Volga to the Russian Orthodox Church. May God reward them richly, and everyone who donates to them.

    I’d add a confessional car.

  5. pkinsale says:

    Google “motor chapel” and you find other images and information. Looks like confessional is built into the side, behind the driver’s seat?

    Equipped with a compass, I hope, so it can be parked “ad orientem”.

    This post reminds me of the Catholic Church Extension Society in its early days. There is a photograph on their website of a railroad car from which they celebrated Mass and distributed communion here in the USA.

    They still collect and distribute money to 91 poor mission dioceses here in the USA. They have a map which shows the dioceses they serve. Perhaps you live in one and are unaware of this designation.

    The Glenmary Home Missioners, a religious community devoted to missionary work in the United States, had a similar chapel. Brother David Henley has some a rather insteresting photo of it on his blog here:

    Here’s some photos of the boat chapel.

    Ah, Priests on the Bus long before Nuns on the Bus.

    Please read about The Little Ark used in County Clare, Ireland in the mid-19th century by Father Michael Meehan – beautiful priest, beautiful story. A church site couldn’t be found due to Catholic persecution so Father Meehan built an “ark” and said Mass in it for years. God bless our holy priests!

    PLEASE! Our worst nightmare! But not out of the question with the way this administration operates! Can we make through 3-1/2 more?!?
