Mass at Home/Messe zu Hause

What do you do when you cannot go to church due to illness?  Watch Mass at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, a place I know so well from my days at ND.   Right now you can only watch one Mass because school is not in session.  Today's Mass can be found here and also below.

Wenn man aus Krankheitsgründen nicht in die Kirche kann, kann man sich die Messe bei der Basilika des heiligen Herzen von Notre Dame ansehen, der Kirche meiner alten Universität, wo ich viele Messen erlebt habe.  Die Messe von heute kann man hier und unten sehen.

    1. Thanks so much, Christine. So nice you are still thinking of me. I am making progress (although today was not my best day). I am not sure if I can go to church next Sunday, we will have to see. But the Sunday after that should work.

  2. That's nice, Eva :) I hope you've been getting better and better each day.

    We had a busy week at my Mom's and Dad's house . . painting the back of it . . and trying to do some small repairs inside. But we also managed to get to the beach in the late afternoon for a swim. Well, I would swim. The water is too cold for Greg! He grew up in Florida and likes warm bath-like water :) Last time we visited down there, he swam for hours, and didn't swim at all because the water was too warm and unpleasant for me. Funny, huh?

    1. Notre Dame is a special place although conservative Catholics have lots to complain about when talking of Notre Dame these days. The campus is gorgeous and whenever we drive to visit Peter's parents we need to stop here. I have been to so many amazing Masses at the Basilica, one of them was a Good Friday Mass and one a Christmas Midnight Mass. I also was blessed by Frère Roger, the founder of Taizé, in this very church when I was pregnant with Jonathan. So seeing a Mass from there and sometimes recognizing priests (many of them are also professors) is so moving.

      I saw the pictures with Greg at the beach. I think men don't like sand (see my comment on your blog) and also don't like cold water. I have never swum in a warm ocean so I don't know how I would react.

    2. People always have something to complain about . . :) Liberal and conservatives :) I think it's nice how special it is for you to go back.

    4. That is so true, some people are never happy unless they can complain a bit. Normally we get to go back once a year for real, but the Masses are a nice reminder of our time there. I do still have contact with one former colleague, but unfortunately he is at Yale now. So when we visit ND we cannot see him and his wife and children. (His wife is a former student of my father-in-law!)

    1. They have nice Masses and the videotape quality is better than many other online free Masses. I also like to recognize familiar faces among the priests :):
