Papal Mass MadnessWritten by Michael J. Matt | Editor
"Rocca, a reporter for CBS Sunday Morning and former correspondent on The Daily Show, delivered the first, or Lector, Bible reading at the New York City Mass in Spanish. Rocca’s mother is Colombian.
“I am deeply grateful and humbled to have delivered a reading at a Mass celebrated by @Pontifex,” Rocca tweeted afterward."
REMNANT COMMENT: If the Holy Father cannot keep mixed messages, confusing signals, and colossal scandals out of his billion-dollar whirlwind tours then might faithful Catholics be forgiven for suggesting that these Eucharist-abusing liturgical extravaganzas be avoided in future? And if this does not happen, and the scandals continue, how long do we give the Holy Father himself a pass when it comes to culpability? From Communion passed out of Dixie cups in Rio, to consecrated Hosts being passed back from person to person in the Philippines, and now this! Who’s in charge of the papal Mass madness, and is the ensuing scandal worth it?
This is getting ridiculous!
