We had left home at 4:30 AM last Sunday and with construction and kids ended up late for Mass. We were passing through Duluth and at the tip of Ray at Stella Borealis chose to stop at Mary Star of the Sea for Mass. Beautiful church, horrible music. The "closing hymn," and I use that phrase loosely, was started with "and a one and a two and a three" and the last verse was met by rhythm clapping through the whole church(I mistook "dancing" for the mad dash to the door by everyone as they applauded the guitarist). Okay, not only was it guitar music, but the guitarist was not able to play his instrument well either. At any rate we had to wait only briefly for the church to clear out before we could spend some time in prayer(you know, because we were in a church).
Someone hoping to get some holy water.
The organ which was NOT used.
The one person who was still there 60 seconds after Mass was over. I wondered how long he had been at the parish and if he was praying to save it from Guitar Man.
