Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, miserere nobis!
Also a sad day for me. For some years, the La Crosse Cathedral has hosted a First Friday Ordinary Form Latin Mass of which I sang in choir. The priest who said Mass each month is reassigned to another area and, well, nobody comes. I'm not sure why. One would think, First Friday, great devotion, Gregorian Chant, Latin, but people just didn't care. I guess this is part of a longer post I've meant to do on the La Crosse Catholic scene. But the message that Catholics in La Crosse have been sending the powers that be is that an all Latin Ordinary Form liturgy will not succeed or be well attended in the city. I'm sure the diocese is taking note. But on the other hand, we get to do a sendoff in style, providentially the Solemnity is on First Friday this year. Also, my First Fridays are now open to trips down to see my homeboys in Madison more often.
