As everyone knows, I despise beyond despise what those priests and bishops, who just can’t help themselves, do at the Introductory Rite of the Mass and so does Cardinal Tagle, thanks be to God!
Good morning, good morning I said! How are you and I hope you are having a great day. It is a great day when we enter into Mass with the Scriptures that the Mass has. I won’t preach a long homily at this point, but let me point out who is in the congregation, especially those who are visiting. Can you stand and tell us you name and where you are from?
And the Scriptures, especially the Gospel, what a blessing it is to hear the words of Jesus spoken to us, and reminding us that He is God and we are not. He forgives sins and heals a man on a stretcher. Isn’t that precious. But let me stop here and let you call to mind your sins, especially against the environment and in favor of bombs and war and all that kind of violence, but especially for not recycling and for using plastics and throwing them into the sea. Pause and beg God for forgiveness.
Lord Jesus, forgive us for treating others as aliens in a foreign land. Lord have mercy.
Lord Jesus, forgive us for making the climate change. Christ have mercy.
Lord Jesus, forgive us for being too Catholic and backwards. Lord have mercy.
Well, it appears Cardinal Tagle doesn’t like these kinds of introductory rite ad libbing:
