I was fortunate to have 2 priests celebrate Divine Liturgy from 11:30 pm on New Years Eve to 12:30 am many years ago, and when they passed, no one continued to do that for the parishioners. I loved doing that to open the new year. Miss those 2 priests very much, who have gone home to Jesus. They were men of prayer and service.
Did you have the opportunity to celebrate Mass or Divine Liturgy over midnight where you live?
