    Minnesota bishops will reopen public Masses, defy state order
    CNA Staff, May 20, 2020 / 05:05 pm MT (CNA).- The bishops of Minnesota have permitted parishes to resume public Masses, and to defy a statewide order prohibiting religious gatherings exceeding 10 people.

    “An order that sweeps so broadly that it prohibits, for example, a gathering of 11 people in a Cathedral with a seating capacity of several thousand defies reason,” the bishops of Minnesota’s six dioceses said in a May 20 statement.

    “Therefore, we have chosen to move forward in the absence of any specific timeline laid out by Governor Walz and his Administration. We cannot allow an indefinite suspension of the public celebration of the Mass,” the bishops added.

    Any place, but the Twin Cities in Minnesota will be fine. Stay away from the metro area..... full of everything you don't want!

    Yes! I live in Minnesota... it's about time! Yaaay!

    Though, my family and I hope to get a proper burial and funeral services for my Uncle G. who passed away just after midnight today. (it was not from Covid 19).
    Meanwhile, my other uncle, J. is awaiting to hear from the mortuary to have burial and funeral plans to get started. Hopefully, ours will not get too delayed or postponed.
    Other than what bishops of MN says of having Masses reopening; my uncle J. says the bishops are also 'fighting' with issues on burials/funerals so that this can't be delayed any longer either. ...and also I'm hoping for more than 10 persons can attend his funeral. Sigh.

    But I am glad that just yesterday afternoon, we were able to get a Catholic priest into the nursing home to give my uncle G. his last rites and I joined in on partial leading of the Divine Mercy Chaplet prayer on which we used via the Zoom video group system. This Zoom video really helps us all to get to say our 'goodbyes' to our uncle G. ...including my mom, too. Only my uncle J. and the priest were able to get inside to his room. This nursing home was real strict and tight on visitors. My uncle G. couldn't speak and his eyes were closed but we could see that he was trying to talk which his lips were moving and his legs and arms moved a bit, too... I really believed he heard us talking to him over the speaker via the Zoom video. This gave me peace with knowing that he has finally let go to go ahead to cross over. May my uncle G. rest in peace and God have mercy on his soul! +++

    Catherine, thank you so very much for sharing this sad and moving account of what your uncle has gone through and what your family has endured. It really has been a blessing that he received the last rites. I am glad that you were able to recite the Chaplet and be there for him on zoom. Everything is so different now.
    I will pray for the repose of his soul and for your family to be consoled.

    Will the police arrest the people attending church?
    Or will the churches be fined?

    A night in jail would be worth Mass.

    I live here also...

    The local nursery had over a thousand people shopping for spring plants/flowers this weekend; full to capacity. Most people spend about an hour shopping there. No masks, crowded conditions, yet allowed by our governor. But not churches...10 or less.

    Give me a break!

    The bishop tried to work with him, promised 1/3 or less capacity, seating plan etc. etc.

    Isn't it something? Here in the USA they let criminals out of prison and throw violators of illegal dictates which violate our birthright in!
