I attended the Saturday 4:30 Christmas Children's Mass. The singing by the children was WONDERFUL. Thanks to all that put the program together.
My grandmother also attended mass with us. She usually attends mass at Our lady of Sorrows. This was her first mass with Father Louie. Her questions: "Is he always so dramatic... and so loud?" "Has anyone ever told him that his screaming during mass is offensive and it gives people a headache?"
"And... where does he keep going during mass?" He left the altar several times... once at the end of communion for about five minutes. I thought mass was over, then here he comes again to thank everybody. The service was so LONG, people from the 6:30 mass were stumbling to get in, while the people from the 4:30 mass were trying to get out! Who was in charge of all this planned confusion?
My grandmother said; "I am sorry, but if I had to put up with all of the dramatics and screaming every Sunday... I think I would have to find another church!" Yea... Join the crowd!
6:30 Saturday Christmas Mass
I was not there, but boy have I been hearing about the 2nd sermon! Some say it was the best given at Holy Spirit in quite a while... Can someone fill me in?
