Everyone is welcome now.

Many people who attend Mass this Christmas season may be in for a shock. The Pope made headlines this year by making progressive statements about divorce and claiming many of our pets will go to heaven (except, of course, my aunt's Cockatoo that bit my hand when I was 6 years old). The Pope also made a few big changes to the Catholic Mass itself to make it more accessible for today's rapidly-changing world. Here are a few of the changes you can expect:

  • The Eucharist is now gluten-free (and the priest is required to recite the fine print about where the body of Christ came from in case anyone with allergies needs to skip it)
  • The incense has been replaced with "Almond Cookie" scented Yankee Candles.
