Mass on the Rails
Catholicism thrives on Tradition. In fact it sits next to Sacred Scripture as a hallowed source of faith and spirituality. So it is not surprising that the Archdiocese of Brisbane would publicize the annual Racing Mass as a "popular tradition".
A few years ago the Australian Catholic Bishops published one of heir best document: A Crown for Australia: Striving for the best in our sporting nation As well as producing a readable and powerful document the Bishops released a youtube clip which still has not reached the viewing numbers it deserves:
What I found most interesting in the video clip is that there is no image or reference to the racing industry. So, why is there an "Annual Racing Mass" but not an Annual Sports Mass"?
