Red Mass In Lubbock

Posted:

So often we think of judges and lawyers having to be neutral on the issue of religion.  Often that is required during legal proceedings. But there is nothing wrong with religious leaders taking an interest in the legal profession. And that's what happened Wednesday at Christ the King Cathedral. 

It's a ceremony called Red Mass. "The Red Mass comes from a tradition that dates back to the 11th and 13th century, in Italy and England. The judges and the court will come together and they will have a special high mass to recognize those in the legal profession," says Nyla Ptomey, Director of the Catholic Foundation.

Wednesday evening was the 8th annual Red Mass ceremony in Lubbock.
