                                                       It's pretty obvious it's up to the laity alone now, with very few exceptions.

Well, various SSPX chapels still have Mass where the restrictions on gatherings allow.

Of course, Church Militant (or at least it's donors) doesn't think the SSPX is Catholic.

The Ruthenian and Melkite Catholic churches are all closed as well (not sure about the other Eastern Catholic eparchies).

Maybe, if you think about it metaphorically, this year's triduum will be the three days of darkness?

I should probably correct what I said.  The parishes of the Melkite eparchy will still be having liturgy.  They just cannot be attended by more than the priests and two or three additional people.  I'm currently looking at some of the Orthodox websites to see what they are doing.  The Antiochian archdiocese is doing basically the same.

Many churches in our eparchies are trying to set up to live stream the liturgies for parishioners.  So I imagine many Latin parishes will do the same.  It won't be that there will be no liturgies/masses; just that the majority of laity won't be able to attend them.  In some ways, that's not much better, but mystically, it probably is a world of difference.

I'm sick to my stomach but it's not with Coronavirus.

Melkite, will you be posting a few of these?

I can if you'd like.  As soon as I see that my parish's is up online, I'll post a link along with a few other parishes.

I'm praying that mine will, provided Father is feeling better. Unfortunately, I won't know until probably tomorrow or Saturday, and that's if anyone contacts me from my parish.

Is it irresponsible to attend an SSPX Mass for me? I have a pregnant wife with diabetes and a mom around the corner who's on chemo.
