On Monday I led our annual Senior Retreat. It took place at a Baptist camp in the mountains, and although we used their chapel, it was a bare space, and we had to improvise on some of the details. I commented to the boys who helped, “I wonder what it is like when priests have to celebrate Mass in very difficult situations, like on the battlefield.”
Mass in Wartime
That night I came across Fr Ray’s post with pictures of the very thing. Its inspiring to see the same Mass celebrated on the hood of a jeep as in the most glorious Cathedral. Christ is there. His priest is there. His church is there.
