Archbishop will offer the Mass in Latin...

I've heard in excess of a hundred confessions since Tuesday, in preparation for the archbishop's visit to Our Lady of the Atonement tomorrow, when he will be administering the Sacrament of Confirmation. Most of the children also will be receiving First Holy Communion at that Mass, since we have instituted the restored order of the sacraments of initiation.

Archbishop Gomez will be celebrating the Mass in Latin, using the Ordinary Form. This is the second year he has done this, and I think he looks forward to it.

I'll give a fuller report after the big day tomorrow.
