We recently had a change in priests, and our new priest has been introducing some changes. He is planning something for All Soul's Day that I have never heard of before.
He will be offering our usual daily 8:00am Mass (for the intention "For the Parish"), following by a second Mass (for the intention "For all the Faithful Departed"), followed by a third Mass (for the intention "For the Holy Father"). He said that All Soul's Day is one of two times in the year when a priest is permitted to offer more than one Mass in a day. (He didn't say what the other time was.) He also said it was permitted to receive Communion at all three Masses.
Have you ever heard of this? This goes against all I have learned before about how many Masses priests may offer in a day and how many times the faithful may receive in a day. It also doesn't make sense to me, why a Masses needs to be offered 3 separate times; I'm pretty sure a Mass could be offered for one intention, and the priest could include the other two intentions in his personal intentions.
