Local Novus Ordo Priest has Communist Prayers and Genderless Creed
It is a bad thing to be a red-blooded male and attend a Novus Ordo liturgy locally. Before the mass began, it was asked of the crowd if anyone would like to do the readings that has been trained. I am familiar with how to conduct a traditional Latin Mass as well as how to operate in the Novus Ordo as a server and reader. I offered, but was turned down, because a college girl had offered her skills. I protested that the Catholic theological norm was that the altar role of serving and reading was ideally for men. This met with a fury of protest as I would later discover, but the priest assured me that the bishop here had set the norms that it was okay to allow women to run every aspect of the service. So not only was my overall point rejected (that it is more consistent and traditionally correct to choose male lectors, should they offer), I was told to go away and ask the bishop. So rather than make a sensible response to my point about tradition in general as regards male authority, Fr. Jason McClure (his email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to send him some of your own thoughts) preferred I go elsewhere. He made it clear that this is of no immediate concern to him, since the local bishop has given permission to do many things in the liturgy. Well, let’s see what this ends up meaning.
Not only was the mass basically ugly, it included several offensive elements to any who have a love of the reverent and holy. After our beautiful evangelical serenade of praise and worship songs, the all-girl guitar band rested and I decided I was not going to let Fr. McClure scare me away from confronting him on an ugly liturgy as well the local Newman House director of religious education’s consideration of instituting a Catholics Going Green Bible Study. In fact, a month ago I met with the girl who runs the Newman House and showed her documentation through facebook that the Green Movement is a movement of fraud geared towards depopulation. This is completely in contrast to Catholic Dogma which teaches that human life is sacred. I went to snatch a few photos of this hideous mass to make sure I had evidence. Read more of this post
