Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


The Pillars Are Crumbling

June 27th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

A Rochester reader has alerted me to the fact that the irony of ironies is unfolding at St. Anne Church. It always seems as if there’s something there to keep our interest. While she was unable to snap a photo of what’s going on, I think that her words will be just as illuminating and entertaining:

“Well, it turns out that our pillars in front of the church have started to decompose over the past few years. It got really bad recently when it was seen that there were several inches of separation between the ceiling and the pillars. I don’t need to tell you that that’s a pretty serious thing. We all had a bit of a laugh about it because the pillars of the church are crumbling, sort of like how all the pillars of the community and the parish left. Sometimes I think that I should go back, after all I live just three blocks away. But I always say no. The only time I go back is when they have the auction. I’ve always admired the organ, so maybe I could get a couple pipes? Lord knows I deserve it!”

Is this any surprise?

On a related note, my informant also notified me of a sudden sanctuary appointment which is prominently placed in front of the processional crucifix. Here is the original:

Here is the anticipated reality:

    There were some construction crews working outside of St. Anne this weekend, this might have been why.

    St. Anne is eroding, literally.

    This blog is the work of the Lord! The Holy Spirit has inspired the author and the contributors to proclaim the truth relentlessly for the good of the Diocese of Rochester. The Lord will not be silent. He will speak through the mouths of the ones he has chosen to burn the heretics with the words of truth and light. God bless you all.

    I hate that painting. I hate that paintings of our Lord are replaced by paintings of buildings, paintings of diversity, etc etc.
