The increased Eucharistic practice at St. Stephen's in Milwaukee continues to be a great gift. On Monday, 2 Feb., we had Mass for the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Yesterday, 3 Feb., we had Mass for the Feast of Saint Blaise, the physician who became bishop and was martyred in 316. Tomorrow, 5 Feb., we will celebrate the Feast of Saint Agatha, the early church Virgin & Martyr, with the Holy Mass. And on Friday, 6 Feb., again I will hear Mass, this time in celebration of the Feast of Saint Titus.
Even in the course of busy weeks, I find that getting to Mass in the morning is an immeasurable blessing, rather than the burden that some fear it would be.
