Lay Ministers Leading a “Healing Ritual”

March 19th, 2011, Promulgated by Dr. K

St. Mary downtown will soon offer a Lenten healing service. A priest has been invited to deliver a reflection, however, lay persons will administer the “healing ritual.”

Isn’t this something a priest should be doing, or is that too Pre-Vatican II?

    When is Rome going to do something????? What chance do we have when no one in authority puts a stop to all this nonsense? Can’t they see that our church is crumbling? Why won’t they listen to what is going on in this Diocese and do something about it?

    Because they don’t care. That’s why.

    This goes on at All Saints Parish in Corning. We even have Protestants running the services. All with the blessing of the administrator.

    Typical Fr. Werth. Classic case of “Nice guy, horrible priest.”

    Healing ritual? Hmmm – I think we already have two: Sacrament of Penance and Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Both require a priest.

    Except sacraments are so “old school” in our newfangled Church!
