If I am not mistaken, Archbishop Burke will be celebrating his final Mass in the La Crosse diocese within the next few days, with a brief going away gathering to follow.
This morning/afternoon at Mass (it was at noon), the schedule for Mass this week and next was announced at the Cathedral (I love that church). The official stuff:
Solemn Vespers, Sunday, January 25, 2004, 7:30 pm - all are invited.
Installation Mass, Monday, January 26, 2004 2 pm - all are invited. Reception (translation: mega party) to follow.
I'll probably go to vespers, but Mass might not be feasible. Anyway, it was also announced that all Masses on Friday will be moved to the St. Cecilia chapel in the crypt, so that all the lighting and cameras for the live broadcast can be installed. Eucharistic Adoration during the day next Saturday will not take place (this NEVER happens) all in preparation. What Father didn't say this morning was who was broadcasting this. I looked on the EWTN site and it's not scheduled. If I learn something locally, I will post it. I can't imagine that EWTN wouldn't carry it though.

My daughter just told me that Archbishop Burke's final Mass in La Crosse was today at 4pm CST. I will relay information about the ceremony when it becomes available.
Secondly, EWTN re-broadcast Archbishop Burke's interview this afternoon so I got an opportunity to see it. What a magnificent human being! I hope the courage and conviction he has shown is contagious.
By the way, next Friday, EWTN will be interviewing Mel Gibson regarding "The Passion".

"I ran. He ran with ME. I ran BY MYSELF"
Just noticed your tagline, Des. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't you have to have multiple personalities or an out-of-body experience to run by yourself? :)
If you possessed either of the above attributes, you could sing by yourself and harmonize in a live performance.
