This morning… I want this guy’s job!

It’s about 8:30 a.m. and I have already had four phone calls about stuff having to do with the Synod and other related things.

It feels like the world and the the Church withing the world are flying apart at the seams.  So, let’s have a break.

Here’s the latest from Mat.

Mat isn’t doing anything in these videos, except just being there and being, probably, being happy, which is what I need.

This morning… I want this guy’s job.  I could go to all sorts of places and make videos of me saying the traditional Mass.   Okay… maybe not quite so much with the whole crowd involvement thing.  Any better ideas?

Nothing actually goes on, but it is hard to take your eyes of this.

Unfamiliar with Mat?

Here is another one.  There are a few great moments in it, like the Bollywood thing. For all of them in one video HERE.


And speaking of travel… click the waving flag to send a donation for my Rome trip in January for the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy meeting.

    Perhaps today is a good time to shoot some holes in some paper and make a nice meal. [Tomorrow.]

    You could do processions!

    Oh, thank you, Father! I really needed that this morning, too. Humans dance. That’s one of the things we all do. The blanking out of the women’s faces in the Moslem countries was a real tell. I understand that music and dancing are “unIslamic” and that, if we needed any other evidence, shows Islam is deeply, HUMANLY wrong. Thank you again.

    Perhaps you should try getting a message through the owner of these parrots asking that they should make a guest appearance on your forthcoming videos. You never know, they might stretch to Latin.

    It would be so great if the answer to uniting the world in love was simply to dance. I love it! Perfect fare for a Friday.

    Thank you for sharing. I have seen this video before an really enjoyed watching. There is beauty everywhere. I certainly would like that job also. Those who are blessed to travel and see the beauty of other people, cultures and history are very fortunate. So wonderful we are not all cookie cutter robots. A good reminder to be grateful for what we have! Oh, and I thought I was the only one who liked Bollywood, well, in these parts at least.

    Yes! A video compilation of Fr Z offering Mass all over the world!

    Maybe substitute various scholas for the crowds…

    (I do love these joyful dancing videos! They are much better than the “coexist” bumper stickers.)

  8. Eugene says:

    You are one cool Padre, Father Z.

  9. majuscule says: They are much better than the “coexist” bumper stickers.

    Indeed they are, except for this one, perhaps.

    It would be truly amazing and edifying to see the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass presented,or as it is , the perfect sacrifice represented throughout the world from the rising of the sun to its’ setting in its Ancient form for His bride the Church ,beautiful,and truly diverse ,cultured and awaiting her bridegroom. Come Lord Jesus!

    Very cool. Thanks, I needed that too.
