Some Thoughts on the TV Masses and the Lack of Worthwhile Scripture Study on TV

It is wonderful that shut-ins have many opportunities to view Masses on television. I myself participate in the channel 13 pre-taped Sunday Mass which currently has four local priests besides myself involved in this program. There are also Masses from the Cathedral, St. Ann’s Monastery, EWTN, etc., available. What is lacking is a similar access to accurate Scripture programs of real substance. Some of the TV Scripture is mediocre, or in certain cases, just plain awful. At one time, we had regular programs from one of my mentors and good friend, Fr. Robert Barone, who died in 2004. There is a real void in accurate scholarly presentations on TV. Another painful topic for me is the lack of volunteers among our youth for altar servers. Quite a few adults have volunteered to take over the altar serving. Our adults are a great asset for serving funerals and helping at nursing and personal care homes. However, I want our youth to handle the serving of Mass. Certainly, we will not get vocations if we cannot even get altar servers. When Faith Formation resumes, I will make another appeal for servers a few weeks after we are organized.
