Went to confession, in a confessional, at Historic St. Mary’s. Although the web site and the bulletin say that confessions are from 3 to 4, the norm seems to be that the priest goes into the confessional after 3:15. About 4 or 5 people were waiting for him, perhaps a good sign. St. Mary’s celebrates Latin Mass (NO) at 12 noon on Sundays. Tomorrow’s will an orchestral mass of Michael Haydn’s Missa Beatissimae Virginis Mariae, performed the the New York Catholic Chorale. Wish I could be there. St. Peter and St. Paul Tridentine Parish in Troy celebrates the Tridentine Mass. I have never been present at it.

We have invited the Holdens and the Adamses to dinner tonight. Yesterday M got out Thérèse from Hollywood Video. We’ll see if we have any takers tonight.

I should acknowledge that many in the diocese speak favorably of Bishop Howard Hubbard. See also Interview with Bishop Hubbard.


Only Jake and I saw the film. He did not like it, much preferring the 1986 French Thérèse. I thought this film had some good qualities, though it does not show the great saint that Thérèse was. May watch it again if M is interested.

Telephoned Mom in Westport. Dad was with Dennis taking M— to a party. Dennis was supposed to go down to North Hills to visit the visitors, but could not, so Bud drove up with Mom and Dad, Uncle and Auntie, and Leslie to Westport.
