Gashwin Gomes made this shaky video and heavenly recording or my beloved Blessed Sacrament parish in Seattle. Mark Shea was squiring him about Seattle.



This will give you a better sense of what the sanctuary looks like.



Stepping cluelessly across the threshold of that (then, not now) crumbling sanctuary as an undergrad at the University of Washington changed my life. I felt the Real Presence although I had no language or mental concept for such a thing - and the rest is history. Blessed Sacrament is a place with a special anointing of God upon it and stepping across its threshold has changed many lives.

Yesterday they celebrated the 100th anniversary of the parish's founding and St. Dominic's Feastday by holding a ancient Dominican rite Mass - and the choir was practicing while Gashwin filmed.

He'll be joinng us at Making Disciples, so I'll have a chance to hear first hand how it went.
