Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

One thing I truly miss is the option of a Sunday evening Mass. We have a very old church in North Seattle, that used to offer that. I used to go with my Dad on the few Sundays he would oversleep the earlier Masses.
Because saturday is only if you cannot go to the Sunday mass.
Sunday is the preferred day. Saturday is supposed to only be an exception to fulfill sundays obligation if one cannot make the sunday obligation
My church used to have 2 masses on Sunday morning one at 8am, "which is now gone" and the other one at 10:30 "which is still there."
I went to the 8am mass for a long time so switching to 10:30am mass once the 8am mass was gone took some schedule adjustments. I started getting physically active again and working out at the gym 5 days a week and when the 8am mass was cut, I only belonged to the YMCA at the time and they open at 10am which conflicts too much with the 10:30 mass, then I found another gym Planet Fitness which opens up at 7am on Sundays and that allowed me to go back to my home church again on Sundays, and I could not be happier about that!! Due to things I have scheduled I am not able to take Sundays off from the gym and get 5 days a week in at the gym. At first I did not want to work out on Sundays, since I never done it before, but now it does not matter anymore since I am use to it. If anything it helps me relax before going to mass
On Sundays, I am committed to singing at the 9:30 am choir, so that is what I attend, even though I would like to go earlier (first order of business for the day/week!). I schedule my bi-monthly lectoring commitment during the 8:00 am Masses.
Every now and then when my Sunday schedule permits, I would stay to sing for two Masses. On the rare occasion, even all three. Yes, I do love choir. :-) I guess I'm kind of all over the place with my Mass schedules! Lol! The important thing is to go on Sunday as much as you can afford it.
I loved going to the 9pm Mass on Sunday night. I find that I have trouble concentrating during Mass when I go in the morning because I have trouble not thinking about my plans for the rest of the day. I do best when the day is done and can just focus on the Mass.
