At Holy Family Catholic Church, Inverness, IL, a Chicago suburb, the priest blessed the congregation with a guitar. He said, “Rock with us as we roll with you.”
The story emanated from the Catholic News Agency and included a tweet with video of the blessing, theater-like backdrop, plain table, and rock band. The title of the story: “You saw the guitar blessing? There was more to that Mass that you missed.”

A man stood in the sanctuary, dipped a large wand into a bowl of bubble soap, and waved it around to create a giant blue bubble. He said, “This is the first time this has happened at the feet of the cross of new life.”
I call out the bandleader, Chicago Cardinal Cupich, enabler of the gospel of guitar and bubbles.
