How Often Is Holy Mass Said Every Day, All Around the World?

At least 350, 000 times, according to Fallible Blogma in 2010.

The same statistic is repeated on a few other sites. I'm not sure where it's from, how it was arrived at, or how accurate it is. But it's a very pleasing thought.

Has Mass ever been celebrated in outer space? It would appear not, from this post by Father Z.

I think I got to thinking about all by way of thinking about Ireland's much-reported annual biker Mass.

  1. Don't look now Maolsheachlann, but there's a woman dressed as a priest in that picture.

  2. Oh, but on topic. I'm actually surprised the number is so high. I don't think I would have come close to guessing that.
