A Low Mass...

One priest, chasuble emblazoned with the image of Our Lady. Four seminarians in cassock, surplice and biretta. Four young brothers, all vested, sitting in choir. Four young men, in the congregation, prepared to serve if needed.

This was a Low Mass! An announcement was made Sunday, that a Latin Mass would be offered at 9:00 a.m., for the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Short notice, but met with enthusiasm by those willing and able to attend. Attendance was light with perhaps 20 or so adults, but there were no less than twenty-five children present.


After Mass, several moms congregated on the steps outside, with the children playing all around. Cheerful greetings exchanged, plans to meet at the park, old friends welcomed back...peace, joy and fellowship. The fruits of this simple, Low Mass!

Being in the sacrasty before Mass, we went through over 50 hosts. That means that even though there may have been only about 25 or so adults, there were over 50 who recieved communion. That means 50 who were directly benifited by the Mass (other than those benifited by grace by just being there.)

Amazing, Zach! I didn't realize there were quite so many who received...thanks for your input!
