19 September 2022: The Blood of San Genaro

The blood of San Genaro, St. Januarius, liquified today in Naples, Italy, on the saint’s feast.

There is video of the event.   It’s a bit strange because it also includes pre-Mass warm ups and an open mic.   Then you get to see how in typical Italian Novus Ordo style, people are simply bombarded with constant chatter and noise.

    One of the things I appreciate is attending a TLM low Mass. Silence. It’s wonderful.

    There was a visiting missionary at our parish on Sunday. We did take up a collection for him but we didn’t see him as the TLM wouldn’t have a place for him to make an appearance. I suppose he spoke or celebrated at the later NO Masses.

    Gee, they’re still wearing the face-diapers over there? I don’t know what it’s like in the rest of the US, but where I live, very few bother with the masks. The hospital still gets all bent out of shape if you can’t wear one, but otherwise, almost nobody bothers.

    What’s with the masks? Are they still doing that?

    I also noticed in Ireland when I went to Mass in Dublin a lot of people wore masks including the celebrant at communion. Also they would not allow me to receive on the tongue except at the end with the few that received the proper way, kneeling on the floor and the priest using hand sanitizer between communicating each person.

    Follow the Science! Funny how the bit of Science that COVID is not spread by contact doesn’t seem to be followed.
