I HAVE HAD THIS KIND OF THING HAPPEN IN EVERY PARISH I HAVE SERVED EXCEPT MY CURRENT PARISH!

BREAKING: Deranged Man Charges Priest on Altar Screaming Profanities During Live EWTN Broadcast (VIDEO)



Screaming man interrupts live mass on EWTN


IRONDALE, Ala. (AP) — A screaming man has interrupted the live, televised Mass on a global Catholic network.
The unidentified man yelled “this is it!” and profanities as a priest lifted the chalice during EWTN Global Catholic Network’s live Mass on Sunday morning from its studios in Irondale, Alabama.
The top of the man’s head could be seen approaching the altar, but much of what he said was unintelligible. After a brief pause, the service continued.
EWTN Chairman Michael P. Warsaw said security removed the man, who was detained by Irondale police. The network ordered the man to stay away from its property.

Fr. Wade Menezes is one of the best. I first encountered him at the newly-opened Shrine in the year 2000. His homilies are stellar. His focus on our Lord, particularly during the Consecration is absolutely on point.

Another reason to have an altar rail that closes during the consecration!

Yes, it is too bad we even have to think about security for our sanctuaries and schools---but of course we do. We have several police at our parish at 30327 every Sunday, in theory to control traffic (we have limited parking, and of course neighbors can get riled about parishioners parking on nearby streets), but always handy to have there for emergency purposes----like when someone collapsed in church a year or so ago and an ambulance was needed.

But as the dean of Atlanta's Episcopal Cathedral said recently, we can't turn our churches into fortresses...

The guy was shouting at father to stop, no more, restore the traditional Mass...that was basically the substance of his yelling.

TRUE STORY:

I have a good friend from San Diego who was a martial arts instructor. One time, several years ago, at a Sunday Mass in his parish, a man came walking through the door during the homily and started shouting at the priest. My friend stood up, and shouted to the man, "Sir, you are out of order and you need to leave, NOW!" The man persisted with his shouting and my friend proceeded to jump out into the center aisle, put the man in an armlock and drag him out of the church.

As soon as they were outside, the man looked at my friend and said, "This entire thing was staged as part of the homily and you just ruined it!"

I guess TJM hasn’t found his way to Richmond Hill yet.

TJM's too busy wasting the IRS' time with bogus complaints about the Jesuits.
