The Red Mass

Our annual Red Mass took place over the weekend.

The Red Mass is a Sacramental celebration for our lawyers and justices to supply them with the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit as Roman Catholics.

The Vestments are red to symbolize martyrdom and tongues of fire.

This comes in handy when our Catholic hospitals, doctors, nurse were illegally forced to hand out abortifacients to...Oops..

..when our priests are falsely accused and they don't have the money to defend themselves against...

...when the archdiocese hired abortionists to outsource abortions to and promised to give women a ride there so they could look like they didn't have anything to do with it... the Caritas hospital give away to Cerebus with Catholic conscience protections hanging by a thread..

Oh wait.

Well, that photo brings back memories. The poor paparazzo working for The Pilot got the bum's rush out of a job for that shot. But Scalia was only trying to convey the same attitude that the archdiocese took in its dealings with the victims of Bernie Law's pervert proteg├ęs. Bernie is still ensconced in Renaissance luxury in the Eternal City and Patrick McSorley is still dead.

The filth polluting the Boston Church extends all the way to Rome. Even if the stables are swept clean here, who will flush the ordure from the Roman barn? Who will change Bernie's mitre for a millstone?

Vafangulo. The motto of Lake Streen then and Brooks Drive now. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I have never heard of a Red Mass before. Thanks for the link - I see it has a lot of historical precedence.

Jack, you crack me up.

I'm not sure we see eye-to-eye on Cardinal Law's administration but I can't argue that the culture has been sick for a very long time.
