Opportunity Knocks

+J.M.J+

It should be noted that on a Sunday in October (I do not recall which), Father Morgera will be involved in one of his “retrouvaille” weekends. It is shown in the bulletin of Blessed Sacrament of this past Sunday, and probably in that of Nativity. Regina Caeli Latin Mass Community will attend Holy Mass on that October Sunday at Blessed Sacrament Church, en masse. In like manner, on Sunday 25 November, Father Bravata will be in Italy, leading a pilgrimage. On that Sunday, Regina Caeli Latin Mass Community will attend Holy Mass at Nativity Church.

By these two examples, we should realize the great gift we have been given, both being examples of the blessings attendant to Summorum Pontificum. Some have bemoaned the fact that our Community has divided into two units of that same Community, but the fact is, we are now blessed beyond what we ever dreamed possible: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Tridentine Rite, celebrated in two parishes, each Sunday! In addition, when one or the other of our chaplains is out of town, or otherwise diverted from us, we now have the built-in ability to attend Holy Mass at our other location! .I see that we will be doing a great many things in communione. It is time for everyone within our Community to realize these blessings in their true light, and stop focusing on the “split” of the Community as being something negative.

Some of us, because of our attachment to our chaplain there, or previous parish mmitments, or convenience, have chosen to attend Holy Mass at Nativity Church. Others, for some of the same reasons, or because their souls are more fulfilled by the traditional atmosphere of Blessed Sacrament, have chosen to move back there, taking advantage of the provisions of the Motu Proprio. Both choices are good. They do bring with them challenges, and opportunity

It should also be pointed out that, at Nativity Church, the Mass is now attended by 50 – 60 souls, while at Blessed Sacrament, always the stepchild of Our Lord, attendance is at about 40. Nativity is a dynamic place. It was doing OK when we got there, and will do fine when we are gone. Our real challenge should be clear. We have been given an opportunity, which I see clearly as a calling, to help Blessed Sacrament, through the Graces gained by the Community and by its efforts, to rebuild parish life at Blessed Sacrament into something more than a stopping-off place for an hour on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, and as a place of worship for ethnic groups, who are there, then gone. If we are to help rebuild Blessed Sacrament, the entire Community will have to be involved, to some extent, and for some of us, to a great extent. At this point, I do not know exactly how we will get it done, only that, if we pray and are willing to work, and if the Holy Ghost wills it, we will be able to do it. But we cannot do it if we fail to see the opportunity in its true context, and to appeal to God the Holy Ghost, through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven, for help in it.
