For today’s weekly Tipsy Tuesday, I talk 40 minutes straight about the banning / suppression of “Private Masses” in Saint Peter’s Basilica.
I define the term Private Mass as it is used here.
I explain what exactly is being taken away.
I talk about the reasoning behind it.
I address some of the arguments from those who support this decision.
I discuss what is being done for Mass in the basilica now.
I talk about what this means to someone who plans and organizes group pilgrimages.
I describe what the church is like today now that the Private Masses have stopped.
I share some stories from Private Masses that I’ve experienced.
And I answer your questions live.
