Bishop Clark to Assist at Mass for Fulton Sheen

December 8th, 2009, Promulgated by Dr. K

According to the latest Diocese of Rochester ‘tweet‘, Bishop Matthew Clark will be assisting Archbishop Dolan in offering a Mass in remembrance of Archbishop Fulton Sheen. The Mass will be offered tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5:30 PM, and will be televised on EWTN. According to EWTN, it will be re-aired at midnight on Thursday morning. It has been 30 years since the former bishop of Rochester passed on from this life.

    Good grief. That ought to make Abp. Sheen roll a few times. Please don't tell me he was the liturgical dancer.

    I don't see Bishop Clark yet. Maybe I just don't recognize him in mime gear.

    I saw the mass. Didn't see the bishop.

    Did anyone notice almost all the laypeople received Communion in the hands. The only ones who received on the tongue were a group of reverential young nuns….Hmmmmm.. Reverential and young. Someone is doing something right.

  4. What's with all the Christmas wreathes in St. Patrick's. Hokey smoke, it's still Advent. Sometimes I can't figure the Church out. It tells us not to rush into Christmas and taking time and reflect on Advent and, voila, up go those Christmas wreathes.

    Have you ever seen so much politicking as you have with Archbishop Dolan has he processed in and out of the Cathedral. A liturgist he's not. I thought a bishop was supposed to bless people and not wave at them, or is that a new kind of blessing I haven't seen before?

    Be glad they didn't bring in the St. Stanislaus Polish indoor tree farmers.

  6. Those trees in St. Stan's go up right after the Latin Mass on the 4th Sunday of Advent this year. If any of you blog readers have not been to St. Stanislaus at Christmas, please come this year, if for no other reason, than to check out the "Polish Forest". But we wish you would come to the Latin Mass on Christmas Day at 8 a.m., not 1:30 p.m., but 8 a.m.

    So whatever happened? Did he show up or not?

    I didn't see him at any point, and I even watched it (in fast forward) a second time.

    Maybe they thought about what an insult to Archbishop Sheen that would have been and uninvited him?
