Christmas on Monday means twice the Mass this year

Christmas on a Monday means eight masses in 24 hrs for me. And I only have 3 parishes. Remember to say a prayer for those priests (like my immediate neighbour who has 5) with even more churches to serve. They're going to need all the graces they can muster to survive their Christmas weekend schedule!

Australian bishop urges end to clericalism

I always found it somewhat disingenuous to make a headline of a cleric condemning clericalism. Is there some roving band of priests and bishops promoting its existence that it becomes headline news when one of the clergy (in this case an Australian Bishop) points out the errors of such a pattern of ministry?



This said, it's actually a pretty good article for all Catholics, lay or clergy to read. Clearly, the headline doesn't do the story justice.
