At Least It’s Not A Mass Exodus
A German priest's flock grew threefold after he offered them money to attend Mass. Father Burkhard Westphal handed out envelopes containing five euros (about $7.50) to people who came to Mass at his Collinghorst church. The usual attendance is about 60, but 189 turned up on Sunday when word spread. Westphal said most people had put the money back during the collection.
