The archdiocese here featured a Latin Mass last Friday as part of a Two Hearts society devotional evening. The priest (from the local FSSP Indult parish) brought his deacons, six altar boys, smells, bells, and his entire Schola Cantorum plus 3 ringer sopranos. The Schola did Schubert's "Mass in G" in its entirety during the Mass. It took 1 1/2 hours . . . but it was worth it. They had a Eucharistic Benediction, Procession, and Adoration afterwards until midnight, with 8 priests hearing Confessions throughout. (My daughter took the opportunity to get in the slowest line, she said the priest was a Jamaican and 'very sweet'.)
Jamaicans are very sweet. When I did the Camino and went to Confession before the Pilgrim’s Mass in the Cathedral, which is of course a prerequisite for the indulgence, we had to go up to an area they had set aside near the altar, where they had priests who theoretically spoke the major languages of the pilgrims (French, German, etc.).
I went to the one who was theoretically English speaking. He was an older gentleman who had not an idea what I was saying, but that was okay, since I’d been on the Camino for almost two months and had done nothing other than get annoyed with bicyclists from time to time. But he was very sweet, and I still remember kneeling there in front of the altar at the Cathedral of Santiago.
