"Abbyssus Abysum Invocat" -- Priest Mourns Death of Pannella, andWishes Death of Cardinal

(Rome) The step from "Aperitif Mass" to samba and bossa nova rhythm, to shocking statement, is often only small.

Last Thursday  radical enemy of the Church, Marco Pannella, died. The Catholic priest Fabrizio Fiorentino regretfully wrote on his Facebook page:

"Such is the world: instead of Cardinal Bagnasco, Marco Pannella dies. I would rather have entrusted him with the presidency of the Italian bishops."

Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, who the priest wants to die, is the archbishop of Genoa. The cardinal was appointed  in 2007 by Pope Benedict XVI. to take his place as President of the Italian Bishops' Conference.

Don Fabrizio Fiorentino was ordained in 1998 as a priest of the Archdiocese of Palermo in Sicily. He is the inventor of the "Aperimessa", a so-called "aperitif Mass."

"Trivialization of the sacred liturgy"

Don Fiorentina, born in 1971, is head of the Office for Family Pastoral of the Archdiocese of Palermo in 2008. With Samba, Bossa Nova and aperitif Masses, the former deputy head of the Office for the youth ministry of the Archdiocese, according to his statement, appeals to young people and the unchurched.

Critics speak of a "trivialization of the sacred liturgy, the great harm to the faith of participating believers, but also for the priesthood."

"Not even the greatest pessimist could imagine ever having to read a sentence like that by a Catholic priest," said Messa in Latino.

To critics of his "Aperitif Mass" Don Fiorentino responded by saying: "if it does not suit, to them we say, thank you and goodbye. The door is open…".

The church where Don Fiorentino celebrates his Apertif Mass is, incidentally, filled each Subday to bursting,  "because that's where the party happens," the weekly magazine quoted a participant.

What's an "aperitif mass?"

iDk, probably something Gaybrielle would like.

Not sure, since an apéritif is an alcoholic drink served before dinner, I guess an aperitif Mass is where the parishioners get hammered before watching this Priest doing outrageous things.

If this was my local parish, I'd probably want to get loaded before Mass
