Archbishop Blase Cupich Celebrates Year of the Monkey

Edit: if they're not launching speed skaters down ramps anchored to the door of cathedrals, they're worshiping pagan deities, all in the name of diversity.  It's just another day in AmChurch, that's all. What an insult to the Chinese martyrs!
On February 21, 2016, Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich went to Chinatown's St. Therese Chinese Catholic Church to celebrate the Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese calendar, 2016 is the year of the monkey. 

Following Chinese pagan traditions, the lion and dragon dances at the New Year's eve celebration are meant to drive away evil spirits and bring good luck for the future year. Above and below first row, we see Cupich inside the church blessing a monster representing the lion.  

In the second row, the Chicago Archbishop concelebrates a Mass on an altar with several pagan symbols. The dragon, which dominates the front of the altar, represents good luck; the two black and gold labyrinths set on each end of the altar symbolize the flow of cosmic forces that one must try to balance but always ends in the same way: a shadowy life in the underworld. The incense burner at the side of the altar is to offer appeasement for the suffering souls of the ancestors – a pagan animist practice.

I turned off the Oscars this year, because I was bored to death hearing about a certain issue that the host kept hammering away about. He had an agenda...and not a good one from the reaction of many in the entertainment industry.
But this side-show at the Catholic Church is similar. Diversity, Diversity, Diversity....that is the catch word today. They expect you to throw your own beliefs out the window in the name of acceptance and diversity.
Regarding religion,it should be totally different. Religion should be off limits, and everyones SEPERATE sacred traditions should be respected, without trying to blend them in with everyone else

I think we can safely blame Vatican II, the abuses from it, and the example of John Paul II with this kind of thing. Benedict XVI I think was very much averse to this kind of expression.....and condemned the 1985 or 1986 Assisi I Gathering (remember that circus with JP II and all the "pagans".

I don't know that much about the Orthodox, but having been to a Greek Orthodox Church several times...I very much doubt they would allow for this garbage.

We've altogether given up any hope for programs like the Oscars. But what we expect in our church is something else, and to see this kind of pagan practice encouraged and tolerated can only be called diabolical. We are disgusted and refuse to give any support to these pagan worshippers and One World Order acolytes.

"frickin' francis effect."

This is true. I have one friend who is a nun in Rome, and from her and others, you would not believe how unpopular this Pope Francis is in Italy.
I would not go so far as to say "hate", but the people of Rome, and spreading thru Italy, can't stand him.
Neither I have read, can most of the Italian Cardinals, and except for losers like Bishops Bruno Forte, Gallatino, and Fischiella, the Italian bishops can't stand him either.
But they are all to much cowards to stand up to him and oppose him.
All except giants of the Faith in Italy like Cardinal Bagnasco and a few others.

Cupich looks like a monkey so that would seem to be appropriate.

Damian,are you forgetting Assisi 3 which was hosted by Benedict XVI?

Cupich is a monkey anyway.

Why is it that many of these Modernist fools typically look so moronic? Look at the pampered idiot from Manila, Cardinal "Chito" Tagle. The same inane look and semi-smile as Cupich. The vacuity of their minds is so clearly reflected in their "Alan Alda New Sensitive Male" look. Oh, for real men---with gravitas and dignity---in the hierarchy! But with Francis at the helm we can only expect more empty dolls for bishops (although Francis himself does not have that look---it is hard for a consummate Machiavel to disguise the darkness of his mind with inanity).

Well Pope Francis ushered in the Year of the Monkey on December 8 last (the Feast of the Immaculate Conception) when he had an image of a vile chimpanzee (among other images) projected onto the facade of one of Christendom's holiest churches.
