Swine or you have to DO something

A week ago today with everything swirling in the press about Swine Flu we decided to temporarily suspend offering the Precisous Blood to the faithful at Mass. This was something I was reluctant to do but I felt we had to DO something. At the same time we, again temporarily, did not use the optional gesture of inviting the congregation to exchange the Sign of Peace. Compliments and complaints. You cannot please everybody!
