The Same Old Song And Dance At The Roman-Protestant Diocese Of Rockville Center
"An exaggerated sense of unworthiness" is an unwelcome attitude

I'll admit that I'm tardy in getting the word out concerning the White Martyrdom of 'Fr. Fidelis'. Better late than never.

Those would be the same hands that just changed a poopy diaper, wiped a snotty nose, pet the dog, etc. I would never dream of using them to approach Our Lord in the Holy Sacrament. Anyone who does, clearly does not know Our Lord.

God Bless Fr. Fidelis.

This is so sad and upsetting - the liturgical creativity expert should be fired. God bless and give success to the priest's efforts to restore reverence for the Blessed Sacrament.

Communion in the hand is in itself an abuse that was legalized. Much of the inferior forms that were adopted in the 60s help to generate this kind of attitude towards Christ; diminishing the sense of the Sacred and thereby affecting belief in the Real Sacrifice and Real Presence. When will get a Pope who will actually do something about these inferior forms and of the intrinsic deficiency of the Novus Ordo itself (such as its prayers and ritual)?

1. An "extraordinary minister of the Eucharist" in a devil's wig with horns!! Ahh, more of the rotten fruit of Vatican 2. Does anyone in their furthest imagination think anything like that would have happened before 1968?

2. How does a religious Sister get to tell an ordained priest what to do? Maybe she was speaking for the bishop (eunuch).
BTW, nice habit "Sister" Browne.

3. I think Fr. Fidelis should now educate his flock (including the stollie in its midst) by preaching on nothing but the Real Presence for the next year.

Sorry to be so "technical" but it is not Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist. The only Minister of the Eucharist is a priest, an Ordinary Minister. A deacon is the Ordinary Minister of Holy Communion and a lay person or religious can be an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. I know it sounds like mincing words, but Redemptionis Sacramentum was quite clear about this. Too many lay people and some religious acting as if they were clerics when it comes to the distribution of the Holy Eucharist.

Please explain to me how a "sister" has ANY AUTHORITY over a Priest?

Is there something wrong with my brain? A woman with devil horns was distributing the body of Christ?

Will these people not die?

Can you imagine this in the Eastern Orthodox churches?

Somebody, please make it stop. This just can't keep going on like this.

Others have asked this, but I don't could a nun have prevented the priest from distributing the Eucharist any way he thought proper. There's something missing here and I can't find another source for the story.

Ask any priest who has been in the seminary during the last 40 years or had to deal with many a chancery office. Because either the bishop or rector gives them authority or the priest is a testosterone impaired wimp deadly afraid of being sexist or non-colaborative.

Yet nuns (and lay folks) have NO STANDING in canon law when it comes to the administration (and control of) the Holy Eucharist. Not even a deacon. The priest, the priest, the priest!

So much for canon law.

The late Fr. John Hardon use to say "that one of the biggest reasons for the breakdown of the priesthood is their fear to SPEAK UP to women (women religious). This is true as I have witnessed this first hand of a priest taking orders from a "nun".

What I don't understand in the video is where it states that the parishonres were happy that Fr. Fidelis had the courage to do what he did, yet what did these people do to defend not only the priest but to denounce the wicca witch? The people MUST have the louder voices and if that doesn't do; keeping the collection basket empty sure will!
