The following post comes from a long-time source of Rorate in Ireland. While the Franciscans of the Immaculate (FI) have the last remaining breaths of life snuffed out of them, these scandalous priests run free, out in the open, for all the world -- and the Vatican -- to see:
By A. Friend:
You may remember this time last year, Rorate Caeli brought you the story of the Redemptorist priests in Limerick, Ireland -- and the scandal they caused with their balloon Masses and “solemn” novena, their mocking of the Traditional Latin Mass and their praise of Masses for -- and run by -- the Gay [sic], Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender groups, all while attacking Catholics praying the Rosary outside those Masses for their conversion (see here and here).
Well, there’re at it again – and the 2014 novena has only just started!
Have a listen to the homily by Fr. Ciaran O’Callaghan CSsR given five times on 14th of June ... a lesson in disobedience!
"The Pope glared at me grumpily, shuck my hand, and then passed by!"
Take a look at the Balloon Mass (there has been two so far) with the rector of the community, Fr. Adrian Egan, wearing his “singing hat” and belting out the song “Our God is a Great Big God." Don’t miss the hand puppet called “Oscar” – “one of the camels that visited Jesus in the crib at Bethlehem." It’s no wonder the Irish Church is in a complete meltdown considering this is what passes for Catholicism these days.
I would also like to draw attention to the Redemptorist-ran parish of Cherry Orchard in Dublin, where recently two of its priests (Frs. Gerry O'Connor and Sean Duggan) dressed up as women on the sanctuary to "entertain" the congregation. Fr. O’Connor even did the actions to “The Birdie Song” as it blasted from the speakers (see image below).
Incidentally, this “liturgy” was the culmination of what Fr. Gerry O'Connor has coined as "Cherry Orchard Parish Annual Week of Hope" aka "Candle Week."
This final video (below) shows a montage of photographs taken over the course of the Week of Hope. Be warned -- horribly distasteful.
