St. Ignatius Loyola - Concord Hill

This morning, October 9, I decided to drive out and check out the fall scenery, so I headed to St. Ignatius in Concord Hill/Marthasville for the 10 am Mass.  Just so you know, my GPS is insane.  Like my pal, it has a fondness for scenery and gravel roads.

St. Ignatius was built in the 1930s.  The windows are clearly from that time period but the rest of the church is more classical.

The music was accompanied by an organ in the choir loft.
Opening:  Only A Shadow
Offertory:  In Christ There is No East or West
Communion:  Where Charity and Love Prevail
Closing:  Love Divine All Loves Excelling

The mini-homily was about how God is the God of all.

The homily started off with how in the next few weeks, some words in the Mass will change.  We need to pay attention to words.  The expression of characters in word is disappearing as cursive is no longer taught.  Soon reading will disappear as devices read for us.  It means that the word is less dwelt upon.  We should choose 3 phrases from each reading and dwell on them.  God expects us to have an understanding of the Word.  In Isaiah, the Lord God will wipe away the tears from every face.  God is the God of All.  By the time Jesus comes, the Jewish Leaders believed that God was only God for the Jewish people.  Everyone is invited to the feast but no one seems to come.  You need the right attitude. That's what is meant about not being dressed right.  It is a challenge to learn in this age of mass media.  St. Paul says he can do all things in Him who strengthens me.

Father used EPII and there were bells.  Because it was Catechail Sunday, Father had a special blessing for teachers.
