The people's Mass.
The Rev. Stephen S. Josoma, presiding at a Mass on Boston Common protesting the leadership of the Archdiocese of Boston, asked forgiveness "for the times we have paid, prayed, and obeyed." Approximately 2,000 Catholics attended Sunday's outdoor Mass, which was sponsored by Voice of the Faithful, the lay reform movement launched in response to the clergy sexual abuse scandal.
