NOT Meeting Christ in the Liturgy

The "womanpriest" (sic) hydra raises its ugly head in the Archdiocese of Washington.

News has come that the Catholic Worker House in the capital city plans to host a "faux" liturgy by excommunicated women who claim to have attempted to receive ordination through apostolic succession.

As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, only men may be ordained to the ministerial priesthood.

There is another tragedy here besides the schism into which Catholics place themselves by participating in so-called liturgies celebrated by so-called "ordained" women or the excommunication into which Catholics place themselves by conferring or accepting invalid and illicit ordination: the heinous manner in which Dorothy Day's name is being dragged in the mire of disobedience and scandal.

Prayer For The Canonization of Servant of God Dorothy Day

Merciful God, you called your servant
Dorothy Day to show us the face of
Jesus in the poor and forsaken.
By constant practice of the works of mercy,
she embraced poverty and witnessed
steadfastly to justice and peace.
Count her among your saints
and lead us all to become friends of
the poor ones of the earth,
and to recognize you in them.
We ask this through your Son
Jesus Christ, bringer of good news
to the poor. Amen

Dorothy Day has got to be shedding tears at how they are betraying what she stood for.
