9,000 Irish people are going to a mysterious mass and the posts are hilarious

Is there anything to be said for saying another mass?

Ireland has a unique relationship with mass because a Sunday gathering in your local church isn't just an ecumenical matter, it's a social one.

There are books that are just waiting to be written about the sociological pressures associated with your Sunday sermon. For example, we all felt the pressure of being forced to wear your best clothes, the constant looks around the church to spot your mates, the intense staring contests that you would have with your brothers/sisters in a bid to crack them up and finally, but most importantly,  that incredibly awkward moment when you fart during the gospel. All good fun.

A mysterious Facebook page has 9,000 people interested in attending a mass that organised by "Sunday Morning Mass On RTE One" and some of the posts to their wall are amazing. Take a look.
