Video of a "Clown Mass"

While browsing this afternoon on the Fish Eater's Forum, I found a shocking video: a clown Mass. This is a heretical atrocity. Words can not describe how I feel - a priest is allowed to make a mockery out of the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I am speechless and horrified after watching the video. I found contact information to complain about this from an article on the website of St. Joseph's Men Society.

I think these words of Fr. John Corapi are appropriate:

"When a priest shows up for Mass in a clown suit, you can be sure Satan helped him with his vestments in the sacristy."

O Lord, have mercy on us!

Holy cow. Theres so much work to do. Notice how the priest plays martyr and compares himself to Chrsit after someone calls him out for desecrating the sacred liturgy.

Thanks for sharing this.

I couldn't watch all of it; it made me want to throw up.

You and I felt the same way, Mark. And as theGodfearinFiddler said, "Theres so much work to do".

Pray for an end to liturgical abuses!

Was it just me who misheard but did you hear the disrespect towards the bible when the priest said according to Matt instead of Mathew?

I guess everyones right. Theres bad apples everywhere even in the clown community.

"And this priest and this mass is apparently in perfect communion with Rome.
Has any Bishop condemned it? Has any Bishop threatened excommunication of this priest or suspension a divinis if he does not stop? Has he been publicly admonished?

Yet if a priest in that same church had attempted to say the Tridentine Mass he would have IMMEDIATELY been disciplined."

I personally agree with this comment that someone posted on the link you gave to the video.

The church where the liturgical abuse was made has it's own website, where you can find Father Joyce's page.

It's sad what some people do to disrespect the church. I feel bad for those involved.

Clearly no one has heard of St. Phillip Neri.

My computer doesn't have sound, but out of curiosity what Church DOGMA did they deny? Are they saying that Jesus isn't fully divine and fully human? Mary isn't the theotokos? Jesus was made and not begotten? You do know that heresy is denying Church dogma (not necessarily doctrine).
