Edit: “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world.”
These things don’t happen generally in the NO, except perhaps where there is great faith or irreligion.
And of course this is an endorsement of the correct political order. Where does this bloodless spiritualism come from?
We don’t sell t-shirts and religious goods, so we should be able to safely, unscrupulously, if you will, see God’s hand in this as an endorsement towards “our” side, that is the side of the Catholique et Royale.
Meanwhile, in the NO, a Snickers Liturgy! If the commenter, hadn’t identified this man as a bishop,
I’d have thought he was a renegade nun!
I live in the area of this Monastery.
The Bishop of the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese, where the Monastery is located, is going there next week to check things out. He seems like decent guy. Keeps a low profile. No scandal around him.
I would trust his take on this.
Commentators on other blogs who have knowledge and experience of Polynesian cultures, point out that often even at religious ceremonies, bishops and priests would have a Lei placed around their necks. Usually the Lei is made from flowers but sometimes from candies. A Celebrant would never refuse to accept this kind of gesture which is regarded as an honor not just to the person of the priest but to Jesus himself.
Better not to mock something you of which you are ignorant.
@Matt Tyrell, so?
It seems that the candies Lei story has lead boots.
Things that are appropriate at a Polynesian religious ceremony are not appropriate in Catholic liturgy, but this is the NO church, so who cares?
