The present ‘roll-back’ is both distressing and discouraging. Maintaining a positive and hopeful attitude, especially for the ‘regulars’ at Mass, is a necessary mode of service to them. I recognize that some parishioners are ‘pushing’ you to do more but if you follow their advice instead of my guidance then you put yourself and your parish, indeed, the reputation of the Church, at risk. Please do not attempt to by-pass or side-step the State or county restrictions.
