Real God particle
• We are regularly reminded of the dramatic fall-off in the number of young people attending Mass.
On a recent visit to Ireland, I got into conversation with a Dublin man on the airport bus. When I referred to this drop in attendance, his heartfelt reply was that there was more Mass on the Ballyfermot bus than in any church.
Here was a man who found the conviviality of his bus journeys an example of his delight to be among people.
