A Xt3 Member asked at 3:38am on May 28th 2018
The rules for priest saying daily mass. Our priest is isolating the parish centre from the people and saying daily mass will not be said in the chapel. He said one reason is that when the other priest is saying daily mass he can be in the chapel saying mass on his own. I thought that a priest can't say mass by himself. Is this true or am I barking up the wrong tree.

Hi Peter, not only can a priest say Mass by himself, but if he doesn't have a public Mass he's always recommended to say Mass on his own. This because every Mass is a renewal of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary and his Resurrection, and of course the Eucharist is Jesus' actual gift of himself to us at each Mass. Only once a fortnight do I say Mass on my own, and while I always prefer to say Mass with a congregation, who help me to pray, saying Mass on my own now and then helps me to pray the prayers with more attention. Very best, Fr Brendan
