On Sunday, November 19th, I celebrated two Sunday Masses, one a very, very, very Modern Roman Missal Sung Mass at St. Gregory the Great’s 11 AM Mass (Bluffton, SC). This parish is the Diocese of Charleston’s largest parish with over 5,000 registered households (mostly retirees to Sun City (9,000 homes) Margaritaville and other retirement communities, expensive ones!
You can watch their Facebook feed of the Mass HERE. It starts at about minute 43! My spectacular, short and to the point homily begins at minute 59:30!
And then I rushed to downtown Savannah’s Sacred Heart Church for their 1 PM TLM. The Church was full with all kinds of Catholics, young families, crying babies, white, black, Africans, African Americans, Filipinos and all the world’s ethnic groups. As everyone knows, I love both forms of the Mass and I am enriched by celebrating both forms. And yes, I had to prepared two stunningly spectacular homilies since there are two different sets of Scripture readings. I’m exhausted!
Here are photos of the TLM, not in any particular order:
