Well, some say that's also par for the course from the Rio Grande to the Antarctic Circle, and in the Caribbean, too.

Interesting you mention the Caribbean. Last June I was in Grand Cayman, and went to "mass" there. It was difficult to decipher it being a true, Catholic Church in communion w/ Rome. At one point, I felt that I was actually at a game show, when the priest decided to take care of business during his "homily."

Not to mention, some of the standard NO prayers being changed.

(interestingly enough, after Church, we went up to a little town on the north end of the island, no kidding, called "Hell.")

The next Saturday, I attended my first Tridentine Mass.

Talk about being on two opposite ends of the spectrum. I've never looked back since.

Where you in Hell very long? How warm was it?
I'm glad to know that you were able to get out of there.

I thought souls went Down to Hell,
hmmm, I'd better check my Catechism.
