Advice for Priests
Blogged by James Preece on 14th August 2008
From Orthfully Catholic...
At Mass today Father gave a whole new meaning to in persona Christi. He said more priests should be thrown out of their parishes by their parishioners as Our Lord was thrown out of the Synagogue in today's Gospel simply by preaching the Truth.
He said priests are not preaching the truth from the pulpit anymore and Catholicism is becoming too comfortable. He used today's patron, St Alphonsus Liguori as an example, he preached the moral truth, God's Moral Law, something priests aren't doing any more.
So come on Fathers, preach the truth and get thrown out of your churches for Jesus!
Fr Martin responds...
Until you are ordained then please do not assume to offer advice to priests.
The advice I will offer you is if you wish to be ordained then I suggest that you refrain from such patronising comments. You are lucky that I do not know which Seminary that you attend, as if I did I would be expressing my concerns to your Rector.
Spirit of Vatican II in action... seminarians like Orthfully Catholic must blog anonymously because existing priests are just looking for an excuse to destroy them.
