There is a chapel attached to my diocesan Cathedral that is dedicated to the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. I often visit the grounds (not the chapel itself; I cannot vouch for the validity of the consecrations there. The Bishop was ordained a priest in 1966, but not ordained as a Bishop until the term of Wojtyla) and play my guitar in a small garden devoted to Our Lady.
Many people come to the chapel to pray before the monstrance, and I have been greatly encouraged by many people's appreciation of my humble offering of praise to Our Lord and His dear Mother.
Well, I went to the chapel today... CLOSED.
The Cathedral's school was having their HALLOWEEN PARADE!
There are usually 4 or 5 cars in the parking lot of the Cathedral and chapel on a weekday. There were close to 100 cars (maybe more) all OVER the lot, on the adjacent streets and even in lots attached to adjacent buildings. There were crowds of people in sloppy street clothes, kids dressed as witches, goblins and whatever else, and all kinds of chattering and picture-taking.
Sometimes there's only one or two people at a time in the chapel on the average day to pray and visit with Our Lord.
Throw a pagan, secular and totally worthless Halloween parade, though, and now there are HUNDREDS of people there. Obviously, many of them had to take off work to be there.
This, friends, is the 'fruit' that grew when Roncalli opened the 'windows'.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
