"Every Form of the Mass: Simply Extraordinary!"
Not clever. Not helpful. Fr. should regret this silliness.
Just today I noticed a trend where people are thinking it is 'hip' to side with the Catholic Church on this issue. It all has a feel very much like the Spirit of V-II folks, so I am suspicious. It could be a good sign, however. rcg
Bravo for Father Leo. Everyone should use what means they have available to them to convey the same message to Obama, and he happens to have a built in audience from his cooking show. That's not being silly, that deadly earnest.He's a good cook too, beat Bobby Flay in a Throw Down :)
Father this was an answer for me. I had a conversation with one of our parissioners on Tusday night and told them the same message. They were not listening and I started to doubt myself that maybe I did not fully understand but this video was a confirmation that I must continue to speak the truth.Thanks so much.
Too bad Obama will never see this video.~SL
Seems like they all beat Bobby Flay!
Quite clever, quite articulate.Now, may it please God, might there be one soul left in the people's house at 1600 who has the temerity (aka gonads) to sit Barry down for about a quarter hour to take in both Fr. Barron and Fr. Leo's efforts to splain his minions' duplicity and dumb luck that.If he demurs, well may the Chair of Peter unbind all heaven upon his recalcitrant......Yeah, ye complacent and Humpty's, this is also democracy in the 21st century. Works two ways, not just Moloch's way.
LOVE it & LOVE Fr Leo - great priest who LOVES Jesus, is revered by the MSMS Sems & is a great cook too (I have eaten some of that awesome food at the MSMS table)! As this past generation of Catholics have done such a 'great' job following the Church on the issue of contraception, it is time for the new generation to rise up & speak out on this & they are - go to a March for Life & look around. So it is TIME for new wine & new wineskins - the old wine has had 39 years to mellow & what we have ended up with is a lot of vinegar. MOST young priests I am seeing coming out of Seminary today (including CSC @ ND) are radically sold out for Jesus & are unafraid to 'step on toes' - BLACK is BACK in a full length cassock & I am jumping for JOY over Priests like Fr Leo & this new Band of Brothers. Let's hope they have not arrived too late for the complacent 'church militant' who has spent the last generation tearing down the church. These new Nehemiahs have a lot of re-building to do & I am going to stand with them brick by brick. -pgal
They do indeed all beat Bobby Flay (well most anyway), and it's by design. I don't know his religion, but Bobby Flay demonstrates good Christian Charity by allowing these Chefs and Cooks to gain recognition by beating him on National TV so they might be lifted up in their careers. Quite a selfless act for a man of his position. He knows where he came from (nothing) and wants to lift others.And to the commenter about "Black is Back", God Bless you for mentioning it. Nothing speaks to Catholic identity like that Cassock. Nothing says in this world but not of this world like the bold counter cultural statement of wearing that cassock in public. Outward signs matter.
I can only imagine the hysterics that would follow upon Bill Maher flipping the pope the "ring finger" bird, then telling Catholics that "that" wasn't really what he meant.Bill Donoghue would be apoplectic.
Ignotus: Maher has hurled the most despicable of epitaphs at the Pope, the Church, her Doctrines and Dogmas, etc. The mere fact that you are concerned about the sensibilities of flipping Obama a pretend finger sends chills down my spine. That creature is the ENEMY of your Faith, and if you can't see it, so are you.
Vulgarity is vulgarity. That a priest and a seminary teacher has debased himself and, by doing so, encouraged those in formation to do the same, is very troubling.
I thought it was a bit over the top too but used a new media technique that the young would consider cool given the nature of their youth culture today. But when you actually watch the priest he does what most of us have done with vulgarities like darn for damn, shoot for shi-, frock for the f word, witch for the feminine b word and so on, the good father did this visually!
