Sr. Joan Sobala: Nun of the Week?

December 1st, 2009, Promulgated by Dr. K

Tmac over at Journey to a New Pentecost informs us that Sr. Joan Sobala has been profiled as the nun of the week over at “A Nun’s Life.” Below is a story of Sr. Joan written by a parishioner of St. Mary’s downtown. Keep your eyes on the lookout for the blatant liturgical abuse advertised in this passage. To help, it’s in bold and underlined:

“Last summer I had the opportunity to re-connect with a very special nun, Joan Sobala, SSJ. Her community is Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester, NY.

I met Sister Joan when I was a student at the Eastman School of Music, and attending St. Mary?s parish in downtown Rochester. She was the pastoral associate of the parish at that time. She came into my life at a fragile time for me, spiritually speaking. I had grown dissatisfied with my Catholic faith, and was ready to search for something different. I knew faith was important in my life, but I hadn?t felt connected to the parish my family attended. But, several girls from my dorm hall were going to Mass the first week I spent in Rochester, so I went along.

It was an entirely new experience for me ? wonderful music, a community that immediately embraced us newcomers, and a woman (Sister Joan) giving the homily! I felt as though she was speaking directly to me, and with such wisdom. I became involved at St. Mary?s in music, and it really was my home away from home during the 4 years I spent in Rochester.”

    Shameful. Absolutely shameful.

    Leave them alone. Jesus already spoke where it concerns the reprobate like this sad, sorry old hag Sobala and her cabal.

    "But He answering them, said: Every plant which My heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit."

    Apparently, they have reservations in Hell. It is best to just pray for them and not look upon their ugly or take in the stench of their rotting souls. What they offer is not for Catholic yes and ears.

    Has she left us faithful alone? I think not.

    Well, she certainly found "something different" in Sr. Joan.

    Can I take it that someone voted for "Grandiose German Month?"

  8. OMG, Herr Doktor: That is was one of funniest piece I have ever read. I seriously busted a gut.

    Just to keep things civil, folks, I'll stop the comments here. If you feel strongly either way, pray first, then email me.
