UU Goes to Catholic Liberation Mass

Img_6593

It was packed, overflowing, I estimate over 1,000.  Females and Males participated in the mass leadership, even young girls with the young boys.  It was Catholic, but the message focusing on the empowering and justice centered aspects of a loving God of the poor.  I didn’t understand all of it.

It felt informal, yet out of all the Masses I’ve been to in Ireland, USA, Philippines, Guatemala, Mexico, I sensed the most parishioner attention during the service and the sermon.  The Padre walked down among us, with notes in hand, and preached, and was a great physical presence – lots of looking up at the ceiling, waving of arms, stretching out hands.
