A great “wartime” Sunday Mass in my native place. Fr. Z kudos.

Michael Matt of The Remnant posted a super video of a Mass celebrated by my old friend Fr. John Echert, of my native place in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Michael also posted THIS. Well done.

  1. Nothing can stop the Mass.

    “I will be with you always, even unto the end of the age…”.

    Every Mass that’s said now, even with the government suppression of freedom of assembly/etc in the guise of ‘public safety’, is one more poke in the eye of the prince of the world to whom I’m sure bureaucrats and politicians pledge their fealty.

    Bravo, Father(s) who think outside the box. You will be remembered.

    Inspiring! Both videos were great…I agree with most of this, but I’m convinced that for Easter Sunday we have to show the world what it means to be a Christian. If we must do without Masses for the time being, we can offer that up as a Lenten sacrifice.

    But on Easter, I hope to see Masses like this brave parking lot Mass going on around the world!

    “I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history”. Without commentary…

    Bless this faithful shepherd and his flock. How I wish there were more examples of creative ways to get around the realities we are dealing with. It looked very cold for the poor priest, but he gave no hint of it . Thank you for posting this.
