Just three days after Archbishop George Niederauer issued a public apology for giving communion to two “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” at Most Holy Redeemer church in San Francisco, the parish bulletin published a thank-you note from a member of the “leading order of queer nuns” who attended the Mass, says the California Catholic Daily.
What is wrong with this church?
The Oct. 14 parish bulletin contains the thank-you note on page 1, entitled “An Email from One of Those Attending Mass,” written by “Sister Delta Goodhand.”
In the message, “Sister Delta Goodhand” writes:
To all the Folks at Most Holy Redeemer,
Just a quick note to recognize the wonderful Mass yesterday at your Church to welcome Archbishop Niederauer. Your entire congregation was so welcoming and it was great to be able to participate in the Mass. The service was absolutely beautiful and I know that I personally walked away very inspired by both the Archbishop’s message and the angelic voices of your choir ringing in my ears! Amazing!
Afterwards, one of the parishioners offered us a blue “MHRC: An Inclusive Catholic Church” pin that I was proud to wear through the Castro Fair. You are a wonderfully inclusive church!
This kind of thing just continues to scandalize the church. Essentially this church is allowing these guys to come in and put a “kick me” sign on our backs and we’re laughing right along with them so we can be called “inclusive” while they go on kicking.
The one good thing about this is that millions of Catholics now think their parish isn’t that bad.
