The Liturgical Triathlon

It might have seemed like this was just another summer of the Italian Church’s long and humid New Pentecost™, between the Mass celebrated by a priest in a bathing suit on a pool lounger...

and another celebrated more recently by a priest on a biking tour, and dressed for it,
but I think our friends at Messa in Latino have rightly guessed that what we are actually witnessing is the invention of the Liturgical Triathlon. Keep an eye on social media for a Mass celebrated for a congregation of joggers, with the priest accompanying them, as it were, on their journey...

As an old Italian proverb says, Si ride per non piangere - we laugh so as not to weep.
