Sorry! No Mass this Christmas

I see from the *LMS magazine 'Mass of Ages' that Westminster Archdiocese does not have an EF Mass anywhere on Christmas Day this year.

 The EF Mass is outlawed in Westminster this Christmas!

So, let's do the sums.....

1 Archbishop

+ 3 Bishops

+1 Retired Cardinal

+ 300 plus priests (est)

+216 parishes

= 0
That adds up to zero EF Masses on Christmas Day!

So, please don't ask for a Latin Mass as a smack in the mouth often offends!

*I believe that the above information is correct at time of publication but, I have to say that the LMS Mass listings shall I phrase it without arousing ire?......a little ambiguous. There.......that was nice and subtle wasn't choking over the Lapsang Souchong in Macklin Street over that!


  1. Pull yourselves together you LM fanatics. You don't hear the Soho Mass parishioners complaining, they won't have their "special Mass" either, and they have to put up with only two each month. So there!

  2. You are a tease Momangelica...v. naughty!
    God bless.

  3. Not at the Oratory or St. James's, Spanish Place?

  4. Genty - not according to the LMS bods.

  5. Richard,
    You could not make it up!
