Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Little Bombs of Orthodoxy

June 13th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

Sitting in church today, I heard several things which I wished to convey to you. Here’s a list containing the quotes, as I can recall them.

  • “The priest is not just ‘one of the guys.’ He is ‘alter christi’: another Christ. I’m sorry, that’s just the way it is.”
  • “During a diocesan gathering, we sang a hymn in which the Blessed Sacrament was called ‘bread and wine.’ People do not die for ‘bread and wine.’ It’s not holy bread, it’s not special bread, it’s not bread at all. It’s the body, the soul and divinity of Jesus Christ.”
  • “I don’t care what bishops have to say. I follow what one bishop, the bishop of Rome, has to say.”
  • “These lay administrators insult Holy Orders. They preach, and that is explicitly forbidden. Their vesture is another insult to the ordained ministry. This is not the way it used to be.”

Such sweet orthodoxy! Let more priests follow this one’s example and speak for truth, not politics. After all, politics killed Jesus. Truth killed the empire that condemned Him.

    I know exactly what you're talking about, and I agree, the truth was spoken fully.

    Let me see if I've got this straight …

    Those things were said by a priest?

    In the Diocese of Rochester?


    Has that brave soul received his invitation to a Buffalo Rd. "counseling" session yet?

    He *may* or *may not* be in Rochester. I do go to church in Albany, too. lol
