    I wonder if this Mass was in an old church or monastery.

      I’m wondering if it was Saint Elijah’s Monastery in Mosul. I had Easter there a few years back. 150 monks and boys were martyred there when the Persians took over. It was a ‘kneel dog’ kind of moment. I’d like to buy the property and restore it, to be honest. I wonder if anyone would be interested in filling it again.

    Kat I got to con-celebrate a mass for Army reserve here in New Orleans during Isaac recovery. It has been one of the highlights of my first year as a priest. Now I can say I con-celebrated a mass with people in the congregation carrying semi-automatic rifles.
