    Random question for the day:

    Is there a problem with a priest saying three masses in one day? If so, why?

    Kathi,

    The answer may be found in Canon Law:

    “Canon 905 §1. A priest is not permitted to celebrate the Eucharist more than once a day except in cases where the law permits him to celebrate or concelebrate more than once on the same day.

    “§2. If there is a shortage of priests, the local ordinary can allow priests to celebrate twice a day for a just cause, or if pastoral necessity requires it, even three times on Sundays and holy days of obligation.”
