    AED, you are so thoughtful
    We in Md are on high alert
    Our governor just declared a state of emergency
    No one knows the exact track yet
    It is niw cat 3 or 4
    The landfall might be outer banks of North Carolina
    The storm is forecast to sit and spin and bring rainfall totals in the tens and twenties
    Depending on track of storm we might get some wind and rain and falling trees
    On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
    So we do not know yet
    We are preparing for loss of power
    Praying for people in the path of the storm
    Praying for best possible outcome
    This all comes at the end of a very wet summer
    It’s a chastisement for sure !
    Thank you
    Not sure about Long Island
    Not sure about anyone on forum in Carolinas and Virginia

    You will be in my Rosary tonight along with everyone bracing for this. Do you have the prayer against storms? Piers prayerbook. I’ll dig it out and pray it. I saw a thunderstorm —electrical—stop cold after this prayer was said. That was in 1981 but I don’t think it’s shelf life is over.;)
    God bless and stay safe! Holy Angels protect you.

    St Mary of Seven Sorrow's in downtown Nashville. We still have our alter rails and we use them at every Mass and our Holy Tabernacle is dead center (East) and our priest faces the Tabernacle during consecration. Our first Bishop some years ago was exhumed and his body was found to be incorruptible...his tomb is right in front of the confessional. Please visit if passing threw..

    I did a websearch for that church because in the unlikely event that I visit the US again, I would like to see Nashville. There's a short video posted on Facebook showing the inside of the church. I can't remember whether the video was posted on the church's FB page or some other page but I'm sure you should be able to find it.

    Not wanting to take this thread off topic, but I wonder how elderly priests would manage if Communion rails were re-introduced.

    Is your concern about whether they would find it tiring to walk back and forth to give Communion?

    Maybe they can remain at one place on that altar rail, communicants can line up, each one kneel and receive in front of the priest and then leave
    Like now, only kneeling at altar rail

    At the Mass I go to there is one priest in the confessional and one saying the Mass. When the time comes to receive the faithful the priest who was hearing confessions comes out in vestments and helps.

    Or maybe only about 3-4 people kneel at any one time next to one another, and this would save time in the movement of people, while the priest would only have to take a few steps back and forth to distribute Communion.
