  • I don't thing the Resistance Forum was intended to be for asking about Mass centers.  None the less, there is yet to be established a Mass center in Texas for the Priests of OLMC on a regular basis.

    First of all, just to clear things up: that's a 100% perfectly legitimate question for this subforum.

    Second of all, this should answer your question:

    (Note: That thread was posted in September 2013... the last time a Resistance priest visited the S.A. chapel)

    LKCTexas is right, though. We haven't had Mass here in a while, and it's not for lack of support/interest/local organized Resistance, or even lack of permanent (non-rented) location for Mass.

    If I had to blame anything, I'd blame A) lack of Resistance priests and B) our geography. Texas is very remote from everything else in the USA; it's such a huge state. And while it sports the only substantial Resistance center in Texas, San Antonio has a second-rate airport (read: not a "hub" like Chicago, Dallas or Houston) despite being in the Top 10 cities by population. So flight choices are more expensive/limited when flying in or out.

    If Houston, Austin and/or Dallas had a viable Resistance group, Father could make a circuit out of it and say Mass in several places, driving between them. But as it stands, only isolated S.A. has an organized Resistance (Dallas gets visits occasionally because of 2 large families there, one of which had a seminarian in the Boston, KY seminary for a while).

    You said that as a bit of an afterthought. Dallas does have a resistance group even if they only have Mass occassionally.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

  • Texas, huge???  That is an understatement  :roll-laugh1:  It's over 800 miles across and takes close to 13 hrs at 75 mph to cross, that's if your lucky and you don't have a fuel pump fail on you 100 miles from the nearest mechanic, or a tire blow, or...
    or...
    or...
    all at least 100 miles from whatever it is that you need  :surprised:

    So far I've driven it twice this summer, with at least one more round-trip before the end of the year!

    I do however love the hill country :alcohol:
