Archbishop Cordileone of San Francisco Schedules Monthly Latin Mass Despite Vatican Restrictions

The head of the Archdiocese of San Francisco has scheduled a monthly traditional Latin Mass. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone says the Mass in the extraordinary form will be on the first Wednesday of the month at 3pm. He says the Masses are in response to requests from the faithful. The new Editor-in-chief for Catholic News Agency, Shannon Mullen, joins to talk more about why the Latin Masses are being celebrated at 3pm and when the first one will be. Mullen has been following the Vatican’s new restrictions on the Latin Mass. He tells us more about the reaction from Church leaders and the faithful, and how many Latin Masses are resuming versus how many have been canceled. On another note, Catholic gymnast Simone Biles won a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics, but she is not the only Catholic athlete at the games. Mullen discusses more on this. He also goes into his background in journalism and why he felt called to Catholic News Agency. He shares his goal for CNA and some of the upcoming stories he is most excited about.
