Today I went to Old St. Pat’s for mass with my family as we were meeting my aunt for brunch downtown.
Fr. Hurley, the pastor, said the mass and he gave the best prompts, good naturedly, whenever there was a new phrasing. Encouraging but not patronizing. Just what we need as we adapt to saying “And with your spirit” instead of “And with you” after the priest says, “Peace be with you.”
Change isn’t easy.
