Sombody had to say it.

Thanks to Fr. Daren J. Zehnle for the Link.

Graduation is on the horizon and I am currently haggling with the School over normal First Friday adoration. It will be replaced this year with an Award's Assembly on the Day before Graduation. We shall see what kind of hooting and hollering go on. I am not sure I would go as far as the Bishop in this story, but I am not sure it will ever happen again.

I wonder if His Excellency will hire out.... I'd print up business card for him: "Have spine, will travel."
One local Catholic High School has graduation ceremony within an actual Mass, in an actual church, and so far as I know, no one has tried to stop, or even seems to mind the hooting and hollering (from the graduates as well as their guests.)
O the times, o the mores.

This time every year, I cringe at how the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is used as a vehicle for school graduations. Why must the Holy Eucharist be consecrated every time there's some big event to commemorate? Sure, it's appropriate for, say, a religious order's anniversary or something. But for a school graduation? Other civic events? A funeral where most attendees are non-Catholics?
