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.”

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.
