A Diocese of Rochester Children’s Mass

October 13th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

These pictures below are a little dated (from December of last year), but I don’t believe they have appeared on any of the Rochester blogs up to this point. The following are from a children’s Mass at St. Charles Borromeo church in Greece. I don’t think I need to run through the laundry list of liturgical abuses present in these images, but suffice to say that sitting on the floor within the sanctuary and throwing pieces of paper all over the “holy of holies” are hardly appropriate during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Continue to make a mockery of the Mass, and you will continue to see young people fall away from the faith. These strange activities would have been more appropriate in a Sunday school class or vacation Bible camp setting. But no, they are taking place within the liturgy.

    Absolutely disgusting. When is this madness going to stop?

    A tale of two priests.(10-25-10)

    Last Sunday(Oct.17, 2010) I attended the 9AM Mass at St. Helen’s
    and was impressed by the homily. The priest gave a moving talk
    of his experiences with women who had abortions. Not a sound was
    heard in the church during this riveting account.
    Unfortunately, I returned yesterday (Oct.24, 2010),
    to the 9AM Mass at St. Helen’s but there was a different priest.
    The music started out as shouting “happy” music
    and started to become annoying to me. When the priest got
    to the Gospel at the Mass, he stopped and called all the children
    up to the altar steps to have them become part of the homily.
    I waited for him to actually read the Gospel but he never did,
    He just paraphrased parts of it to explain it to the children.
    So by doing this, did the priest invalidate the Mass for everyone?
    Don’t they have to follow the form of the Mass?
    He did a baptism right after that and the music returned
    to loud “happy” noise to distract me again.
    I decided to go to St. Stanislaus at 1:30PM and welcomed the
    peace of the Latin Mass.

    Fr. Hewes (the humble one) and Fr. Schramel (the game show host). I know exactly what you’re talking about, anon 10:51.

    Does the following image from St. Helen look familiar?

    That’s it! I am not alone, then.
    So I can only go there when
    Fr. Hewes (the humble one) is present.
    Can’t go to Saint Anne.
    Can’t go to a growing number of other churches.
    Just OLV and St. Stanislaus…
