Father Joesph Illo, pastor of Star of the Sea in San Francisco, gave a 14-minute homily of Sunday, July 12.
A 15-second excerpt:
Our church leaders are hoping that when the church restrictions are lifted that people will all come back to Mass. I don’t see it , Before Covid, 75 percent of Catholics did not come to Mass every Sunday on a regular basis. How many of the 25 percent attending will return? I think we’ll be down to 5-10 percent of card-carrying Catholics.
