I’ll be sending the link to this discussion to the Pastor of the parish, Fr. Alex Santora, to let him know that our conversation will centre on the fact that he is about as Catholic as Nancy Pelosi, whose reputation as an apostate has crossed the Pond – we all know just how anything-but-Catholic is the pro-abortion up to and including birth, Pelosi…
Here’s an extract from the parish website describing their parish priest/pastor…
As pastor of The Church of Our Lady of Grace and St. Joseph, Fr. Santora instituted the annual FunFest, Flea Market & Used Book Sale, Spaghettiaoke, and musical concerts to attract people to the parish. In 2006, with the establishment of a young adult ministry, a Sunday evening Mass was begun. This Mass is popular with people of all ages. Fr. Santora’s unique and easygoing style might belie his deep commitment to God, to his parishioners, and to our church. However, through his commitment and his solid work ethic, he has reinvigorated the life of our parish as well as reinvigorating the entire Hoboken community.
In October 2012, Fr. Santora celebrates the 30th anniversary of his Ordination. Ends.
His “deep commitment to God”…? Er, not remotely, unless this is some new god that we’re only just hearing about. He’s clearly NOT committed to the God of Divine Revelation, Father, Son and Holy Ghost who has entrusted the salvation of souls to the Catholic Church established by Christ which has the grave duty of defending and promoting the natural moral law, which Fr Santora openly rejects. This from the Catechism of the Catholic Church on the subject of homosexuality:
Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. [CCC # 2357, emphasis added].
Note: Cardinal Tobin’s contact details are given at the end of the Lifesitenews report but remember, he is one of those friends of the defrocked (former) Cardinal (now Mr) McCarrick who undoubtedly owes his position within the Church to that notorious former prelate. I think asking Tobin to do his episcopal duty by removing this priest from active ministry (at the very least) would be akin to asking Nancy Pelosi to run an orphanage. And since this priest is being permitted to publicise this Mass for a second year, evidently Cardinal Tobin is completely on board. Seems Archbishop Viganò was spot on when he included Tobin as one of the corrupt McCarrick appointments.
Of course, all of this goes straight back to Pope Francis the First and, we sincerely hope and pray, the last… So, please, no excuses. The buck stops at the Pope’s desk.
In any event, share your thoughts here, because I’ll be sending the link to this apostate priest – and he really does need to know the shocking damage he is doing by promoting behaviour which, according to God’s law, cannot, under any circumstances, be approved, and then heaping coals of fire on his own head by – through a blasphemous “Mass” – misleading people into believing that this immoral activity is pleasing to God. Which reminds me, almost as an aside – will all Catholics reading this please abandon this new and very dangerous Mass, which is clearly so easily used to promote evil, and return to the Mass which nourished the countless saints in Catholic history and for which martyrs gave their life’s blood? Please?
