This year we have a deeply wrong offering from the loony National Sodomitic Reporter (aka Fishwrap) by lesbian Mary Hunt, student of the heretic Rosemary Radford Ruether and liberation theologian Juan Luis Segundo and a bid deal to the condemned homosexualist groups New Ways Ministries.
This is a great example of where Fishwrap really is.
Hunt uses the image of an empty St. Peter’s Square to argue the THE CHURCH is in extremis (dying throes). She ridicules hierarchy and the adoration of the Eucharist in the monstrance as “13th-century ritual” that people, who apparently aren’t as enlightened as she is, turn to out of need for comfort. She ridicules people’s sincere and creative attempts to have contact with their churches via the internet, and proposes, essentially, that people should just make up their own stuff to do. After all, As my undergraduate theology professor Jesuit Fr. Tad Guzie emphasized 50 years ago, “A Eucharist without a priest is a Eucharist without a priest.”
Undergraduate stuff, to be sure. But most undergrads students would do better.
And, of course, she hates that men are still doing things.
Thank, Mary, for exposing the Fishwrap even more.
Your Excellency, yes! “Catholic” should be dropped from that article at the Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter). It must be dropped from the entire PUBLICATION and WEBSITE. As a bishop you can bring this to your brethren. Decades overdue. Quousque tandem? https://t.co/V3leZd1Gqj

And then there’s this….
The wymyn-pryst nut jobs have sunk again. This time in Florida.
Look at the way that this silly writer framed this…
Defiance in DeLand: Woman ordained Roman Catholic priest
A DeLand resident followed her [faux] calling and became ordained as a Roman Catholic priest, [not] which the Catholic Church declines to recognize.
DELAND — On March 14, Shelley Rae Gilchrist joined a unique group of rule breakers when she was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest. [Not just rules and no, she didn’t. All three of those terms mean something that she is not.]
It’s a move that Pope Francis and the Catholic Church have declined to support, [“declined to support”?] but Bridget Mary Meehan, the first bishop in the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, says it’s a grassroots movement that isn’t going to disappear. [Yes, I think it will.]
“Hello, 21st century, let’s embrace equality and justice in the Catholic Church,” Meehan, one of the first women [not]ordained in the United States, said.
For Meehan, Picconi, Russell and Gilchrist, the place of women in the church is documented, [Here comes the fiction…] something pointed out at the beginning of Gilchrist’s ordination ceremony, which was held at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of West Volusia in DeLand. [Universalist… uh huh]
“Historical and archaeological evidence reveals that women and men served as deacons, priests and bishops during the first 1,200 years of the church’s history,” said Mary Theresa Streck, a priest and one of the founding members, along with Meehan, of the People’s Catholic Seminary. [I wonder if that’s related to the Judean People’s Front…]
The ceremony began with the hymn “Canticle of the Turning” and an opening prayer. [What a nightmare.]
Full moon, friends.
