Novus Horror Missae: Brazil Team Football Chasuble for World Cup

(Rio de Janeiro) Today was  the kickoff of the World Cup 2014. The hosting country of the greatest football spectacle is Brazil. Just what demonstrates enthusiasm for the leather ball, or it is better to speak of fanaticism, is shown by the Brazilian priest Luiz Carlos Magalhães.
As the Brazilian Correio Popular reported last week, Reverend Magalhães has customized his own chasuble in the colors of Brazil for the World Cup. But not only that  the Chasuble is decorated in green and yellow, there are  dozens of small Brazilian flags and footballs on it. Magalhães is pastor of the Catholic parish of Cristo Rei of Campinas and it is by no means the first time that the pastor Magalhães has behaved erratically. Already during the Football World Cups of 2002, 2006 and 2010, he celebrated the Holy Mass during the World Cup in his football chasuble.

"God is Brazilian, but I Fear Competition, Now There is an Argentinian Pope"

The closer to the World Cup, the more Pastor Magalhães gets out of control. Frankly, he appears in public, with his quirky "chasuble" to violate the liturgical norms, and has been doing this for 12 years. When asked about this   Magalhães replied: “What’s the harm? Everyone knows that God is Brazilian.” In 2014 concerned the football fanatics only care about one thing:  ".. I fear a strong competitor, now that the Pope is an Argentine.”  He had always been football enthused confesses the 67-year-old priest," The World Cup is a unique moment in our country. Brazil has many problems, but now is the time for joy, serenity and patriotism.

Bad Vestments Hit the London Runway

Edit: the show got off with a rousing "hooray" and Julia roamed down the runway with a deep red chasuble. Many bad ideas were born of a desire to be less stuffy.

THESE strutting 'supermodels' are more familiar with the Holy Ghost than Heidi Klum.

They're all real vicars, hand-picked to show off the latest range of ecclesiastical wear at a special clergy catwalk show.

Five trendy revs, including retired Methodist minister Brian Hoare and minister-in-training Beth Allison, flaunted a collection of brightly-coloured cassocks and blinged-up crucifixes aft the event, part of a Christian exhibition in Bristol.

Dominican Bad Vestments for Football Season

Edit: here's Father Dismas Sayre, who is the Parochial Vicar of the Hispanic Ministry for the Dominicans in California.  He's attired for football season in a stole with a professional football team on them.

Chris Gillibrand showed us a link where this man shows a penchant for Lifeteen Liturgy too,which is famous for Arizona's own sexual predator and Modernist Msgr Dale Fuschek.

What's the big deal, you ask?

If you don't know what's wrong with this, a dictionary definition probably won't help, but perhaps you might object if he showed up wearing this for a relative's funeral.  Part of the definition of Sacrilege from New Advant's Catholic Encyclopedia as follows:

Sacrilege is in general the violation or injurious treatment of a sacred object. In a less proper sense any transgression against the virtue of religion would be a sacrilege.

Theologians are substantially agreed in regarding as sacred that and that only which by a public rite and by Divine orecclesiastical institution has been dedicated to the worship of God. The point is that the public authority must intervene; private initiative, no matter how ardent in devotion or praiseworthy in motive, does not suffice. Attributing a sacred characterto a thing is a juridical act, and as such is a function of the governing power of the Church.

It is customary to enumerate three kinds of sacrilege: personal, local, and real. St. Thomas teaches (Summa, II-II, Q., xcix) that a different sort of holiness attaches to persons, places, and things. Hence the irreverence offered to any one of them is specifically distinct from that which is exhibited to the others. Suarez (De Religione, tr. iii, 1-3) does not seem to think the division very logical, but accepts it as being in accord with the canons.
