Red Mass(es)

Justin, Marcellinus & Peter, Charles Lawanga and the 11 companions, and Boniface. It's a week of wearing red as we celebrate martyrs.

The only other day of the week is Friday, a First Friday, which is usually a votive Mass for the Sacred Heart (where you'd think red would be the choice - a la Valentines Day - but you wear white). But then, next Friday, is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. I considered NOT celebrating the Sacred Heart today, to draw attention to next Friday's feast. Especially since next Friday's feast will mark the end of the Year for Priests.

In the meantime, hope you enjoyed the red.
