Christine Niles speaks with a parishioner on the possible closure of Holy Innocents Church in Manhattan, NY, the only parish in the entire NYC archdiocese that offers a daily Traditional Latin Mass. The archdiocese is pouring nearly $200 million into renovating St. Patrick's Cathedral, the seat of the Cardinal-Archbishop--while considering shuttering and selling off two dozen churches, including Holy Innocents--a historic and debt-free church with a flourishing community--to the highest bidder to be knocked down and replaced with high-rises and other buildings.
Afterwards, Christine reads the text of Fr. Justin Wylie's homily remarks about the closing, which expresses concerns that no provision is being made for a new home for this robust and unique community, as fully part of the Catholic Church as any other group and thus deserving of pastoral care.
