No Sense of Sacred

April 15th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

Once again, the Diocese of Rochester demonstrates that they have absolutely no respect for the sacred. It is in the DoR where the tabernacle containing the Blessed Sacrament is shoved into the corner or a separate room, where our Masses are profaned by barefoot liturgical dancers, and where our sacred Chrisms are… poured into (what looks like) an empty Poland Spring bottle???
God help us.

  1. Do you know what they were doing in that picture?

    I can't even figure out why there is THAT much Oil… all around?

    It is very perplexing? I am assuming this is prior to a Chrism Mass? Is this how they were transporting the oils back to the parishes?

    Our reader says this was taken after the Mass.

    I'm afraid if you go to most dioceses, you'll find a similar event happening after the Chrism Mass. The oils needed for over 150 parishes, chapels, monasteries, etc., not to mention the individual priests is much. If you look to the left of the picture, there is the sterling silver urn which is used during the liturgy. The glass pitchers are used to distribute the three oils to the individual parishes and priests. What the woman in the sweater is holding is inappropriate, but you can hardly blame the diocese on that one. I've seen such happenings in Rome at parishes there!

    Oh, I don't think moving tabernacles off center or liturgical dancers are only in the DOR.

    But they are in the DoR nonetheless.

    That sure looks disrespectful. Look at the smirk on her face too.

    Person poring: "Ok, do you have the glass bottles for the Chrisms?"
    Smirking idiot: "Dang, I forgot it was the Chrism Mass. Wait a minute let me finish this Dasani…. AHHH. Refreshing. Here, put the Chrism in here."
