The Crucifixion, Mass Attendance & the Church

Of the people who were an intimate past of the ministry of Christ in the world, including the 12 apostles, Holy Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Mary of Clopas, 1 betrayed him, and 10 ran away.

Only John and the three Marys stayed with him, four of fifteen, strong to the end.

Sunday mass attendance ranges around 22-23%.

The rock of the faith is endurance, and it endures still, through all of the great horrors of the present day crisis, the mass is our rock.
