Tipsy Tuesday: The Ban on Private Masses in Saint Peter’s Basilica

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.
