Two women giving the homily at St. Ambrose in Rochester, NY

January 6th, 2013, Promulgated by Ben Anderson

From a friend on facebook:

Two women giving the homily at St. Ambrose in Rochester, NY (don’t know if they’re nuns or lay. Don’t know who they are). Ben Anderson, might be of interest to you, bro.


Told her to say “Cheese”

Why am I not OK with non-ordained homilists? Because I’m not a protestant.

I’d like to add another resolution for Bishop Cunningham to Diane’s list.

  • Your excellency, please stay tuned to this channel specifically designed for you. (dovetailing off of DrK’s third bullet here.)

    These ladies are aware that Bp. Clark has retired, right?

    The only people who should be “breaking open the word” during Mass are the priest or deacon.

    Has someone alerted Bishop Cunningham directly, e.g., via email? He may work his way over to this site, but don’t necessarily count on it. St. Ambrose was my mother’s family’s parish. I remember assisting there in the late 70s and early 80s when several priests were on hand. Now it’s the playground for mime minstrels and would-be priestesses. What a shame.

    I believe that is Sr. Marlene Vigna.

    She was featured on this very site just a few months back.

    Ben:
    Who is she??? Inquiring minds want to know!!!
    Was she wearing ear rings to show her tribal affiliation and if she was, was it to show us her tribe’s (order’s) wealth or to make her earlobes attractive?? What was she talking about/subject??
    Did they try the diocesan trick of having the priest/presider give a 25 second talk and say that she will complete it??

    It would be even more interesting to know who the priest is who passively sat there, allowing this abuse of the Mass (and of his congregation) to take place.

    To my mind, he is far, far more blameworthy…and accountable… for the situation.

    True. In fact, I thought I made a comment here initially (I must have pressed the wrong button) asking if the women just got up and started their homily after the Gospel, or if the priest used the usual pretense of giving a quick dud of a homily, and then “turn it over” to the women.

    Ooops. Sorry.

    I hope people will continue to mention when laity (women or men) are preaching the homily. Only the ordained (deacons or priests) are allowed to do so. The rest may make brief announcements before or after Mass, as I understand it. But I think we should continue to identify who is being so disobedient (so that souls can be protected and we can ignore whatever they say) and where it is happening and with what priest supposedly in charge.
