"My most recent analysis ... reveals a striking trend: A generation of conservative young priests is on the rise in the U.S. Church." - Fr. Andrew Greeley, in the article, "Young Fogeys", from The Atlantic Magazine. January, 2004.

With today being the Feast (okay, obligatory memorial) of Saint Barnabas, how many of you who went to Mass this morning heard the first Eucharistic Prayer? It starts, "We come to you, Father, with praise and thanksgiving..."
We were taught in the seminary that it's a nice thing to use EP#1 on the feastdays of those who are specifically mentioned within the prayer. I used it at Mass this evening and Mass was still under a half hour.
