Edit: basically, one of the Eucharistic Monsters didn’t have enough Hosts and probably forgot that they/their had additional Hosts in the ciborium. Alzheimer’s is the first thing I thought of.
Another sign that there’s likely nothing miraculous going on at these “Masses”, besides the fact that a Eucharistic Monster hands out sacrilegious Communion in the hand, is that the tabernacle has no veil.
Presybyter: “…Sometimes it comes in this weird way…” After saying how it was “pretty cool”, a few laity scattered in the church gave themselves some half-hearted applause. How lugubrious!
If you want to be demoralized, go to the Novus Ordo.
The parish is Saint Maximilian Kolbe and was the last parish attended by the founder of Knights of Columbus.
It looks fairly conservative. Surely, most of the laity who attend there believe in the Dogma of real presence of Christ in Holy Communion. I’m sure in most liberal parishes, the “faithful” would scoff at this as much as I am but for different reasons.
Can you imagine a more humdrum and almost profane way God could manifest Himself? It’s not cool at all.
What’s even weirder, is that the pastor allegedly couldn’t give Holy Communion because his thumb was bandaged.
The Pastor is Rev. Joseph Crowley of the St Maximilian Kolbe Parish at St Thomas Catholic church in Thomaston, CT. This parish was previously known as St Thomas Parish until a merger and was the last parish served by Blessed Michael McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus.
