Altar Boys Make a Difference

Visitor from New Jersey at Our Lady of the Rosary says today, “Father, I just want to day that this is the first time in many, many years that I have actually enjoyed going to Mass. The parishes I go to up North, they put as many people as possible into the procession. The music is all kind of happy stuff all the time like the priest wants to entertain us. It’s like they never ever mention God. I mean, they do, but it seems like they don’t. Your mass was beautiful. And you had altar boys! I haven’t seen altar boys for years! And they are so well trained and beautiful to watch. The homily was really interesting and it was, well, just reverent and for the first time in I don’t know how long it was, but well, like for the first time in years I felt like I was at church!”
