Thou shalt not ramble

Christmas, Easter, New Year's Day...the regular parish Mass schedule can get adjusted a bit on those days. But the last day of the Winter Olympics? For a gold medal hockey game? Forget about it, as Father Glenn Dion at Vancouver's Holy Rosary Cathedral told The New York Times. On the other hand, he admitted the 11 a.m. Mass-goers might have caught a bit of a break on the homily this week. I know of at least a couple of shorter-than-usual homilies this Sunday to allow worshippers to get home in time for the puck drop. Any stories to tell of homilies that set a new 2010 Olympic speed record?
