Is the 'late late Mass' a good idea?

    Over at theAmerican Papist, Thomas Peters points out this story about a Pittsburgh parish that's raising eyebrows with its new Mass time:

    Old-time Pittsburghers remember when a church in the city offered services in the early morning hours for employees who worked odd hours. One church is now bringing that tradition back with a 2:30 a.m. service.

    Maybe he should give it a chance and see how it works first. :)

    Where did Jesus go when he was preaching?

    I think that Rev. D'Amico is following the tradition of bringing God's word to those who need it, rather than waiting for them, unencouraged and ignored, to come to church on their own.

    I think that maybe it might be better to have some sort of prayer/worship event rather than a Mass, just because the teens and young adults etc who were drinking and clubbing would not be able to participate in the Mass worthily or recieve Our Lord worthily. It's not a good idea to come to Mass drunk, to say the least!. :( But if it was another type of Catholic event, it might help to share the Gospel with them.

    However if the Mass was very early in the morning for people who have difficult work schedules, that would be great:thumbsup:

    I pretty much agree.

    I thought the same about receiving under the influence, etc.
