SSPX Superior General Bishop Fellay.
Doesn't he look papal here? What if?
Always Low Mass.
I do my best, I think. I go to my local parish church for Mass and the sacraments. I go to adoration there, I pray there. I'm always so grateful there are so many Catholic churches in my immediate area, three within walking distance - so I'm not really complaining. I'm likewise just as grateful that Mass is available at all, and the Blessed Sacrament reposes in the churches. It's just always Low Mass however. Crappy music, untrained servers, chaos on the altar, the priest has trouble with his lines, there are announcements and speeches and applause during the communion thanksgiving, not to mention greet and meet at the beginning of Mass - and the shouts and screams and laughs and loud crowd-talk after Mass. I do okay. I pretend I'm deaf and dumb and pray - by the grace of God I can do that. Unless there are just too many calls for my attention.
Like last night. Father did the anointing of the sick - right after the announcements after communion. People who weren't participating were leaving while all the old people went forward for the anointing - I did too - because I'm going blind and have so many health problems. After the anointing - people just walked out of church - no concluding prayer - no nothing. It was a free for all. Bless, dab, thank you man, and out the door.
It's a free for all, I tell you.

I'm sorry. I'm human and a sinful man - sometimes I just have to vent. This post may self-destruct...
