Cutting of pastor's role called 'vindictive'

Full story: Newsday

For 32 years, the Rev. Robert E. Mason celebrated a children's Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Massapequa Park that attracted a loyal following among some families at the ultraconservative parish.

Interesting post Lou. And yes, as usual Bruser has pinpointed the obsessive nature of Anthony R.
Saw him scurrying around on the altar yesterday and yet, he wasn't scheduled ??
He just can't stay away and let the EM who was scheduled to set up for Mass.
Interesting comment by the pastor.."galloping towards 60..." Hmmm,
Is he planning on turning 60 again in April???
Hey Msgr Jim, fibbing doesn't work with those who know you for a lifetime!
Embrace you age and live an abundant life.(:

Wow, you will surely incur the wrath of Anthony now. Are you trying to steal Msgr attention away from Anthony???:)

Frank,
This is why the Catholic Church has lost its "Unity", and has lost so many good catholics. I have been following this story with much disdain, as I feel that the Pope should have handled the negotiations himself. All traditional catholics will not abide with the proletarianization of the mass.
The vatican will accept protestant priest from and anglican church, but will shut the door on the SSPX,
because of their outspoken objection to the mis-directed Vatican II un-Catholic directions.
Here is part one of the rebuttal of the attack on the SSPX leaders.by Arch-Bishop Mueller:

Attention Al Gore:

Doomsday Canceled Per NASA
By KCRep | Posted 21 hours ago | Fullerton, California

NASA has stated, after scanning outerspace, that doomsday 2012 will not be taking place. This was an official announcement from NASA.

Now, get out there and do your Christmas shopping!

Mayan Calendar doomsday Dec. 21st, 2012...yeah right!

Preppers should keep all your prep stuff for other catastrophic events, like earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and other real world events. This way you wouldn't have wasted your money.:)

I never believed in this Mayan Calender, but, I was surprised that NASA actually felt the need to make this announcement.

Looks like Toni Pom Pom's Facebook Prayer Group for Anthony the EM may be having some positive effect.(a lot of feedback on that page and Toni Pom Pom did a great job creating it) He's at least stopped posting and cursing on these blogs after stalking Bruser for years on several sites. Maybe he doesn't have as much rage..although THAT would be hoping for a lot. We do know he's STILL following Msgr. Jim though! lol

I told Toni Pom Pom the good news that Anthony the EM is no longer posting on the blogs, with his profanity and anti Catholic Church rage.(May there be peace in his heart). She was so glad to hear that and will post an update on the Facebook Prayer Group page she has for him. Toni Pom Pom really did do a beautiful job with the Prayer Group for Anthony the EM and with that page. She has always championed lost souls and lost causes and says with prayer everything is possible. God bless you Toni Pom Pom!
What an event mass today was!! Not JUST a Confirmation, BUT a Baptism too!! For the same person!! Toni Pom Pom and I had a laugh about Msgr. Jim's remark, Galloping towards the big 6-0! That horse reached that destination this past April as those of us who went to school with him and are also 60 know! lol And not for nothing, but who really is going to go to Confession and say I had sexy thoughts??

Ahh yes!

Short synopsis of yesterday's 10:30 mass:

Giggles and grins on the altar with Anthony and the pastor-(no surprise)

Speed dialing the sacraments at Mass ( hey, why don't we all a a communal vow renewal with our spouses to ensure we don't have "sexy thoughts,") the mass has turned into a revival -all we are missing are the snake charmers and fainting parishioners.

Mr.Ed-- "a horse is a horse ..." However Mr.Ed, galloped out of his barn 8 months ago
On April 7th. Is the pastor showing early signs of forgetfulness?

Michael Voris should see this fiasco-

I don't know how much more I can take of this weekly nonsense

Time to move to a Parrish whereby Mass is REVERENT AND RELEVANT!

i know Bruser, however I work most Sunday afternoons. I wi.l be seeking out St. rose' however. I know Fr. Bruno is a faithful priest and beloved by many in the diocese. I happen to see him preside of a funeral mass of a friend who passed unexpectedly. Although he did not know him personally, he did a faith filled funeral mass without the nonsense seen at Oll I was quite impressed. He is a humble priest -devout and sincere. I think that's where I will go and cut my ties with Oll and all the abuses that I witness with Anthony and the pastor.

There is no leadership in this parish nor in the diocese. Things are bad and getting worse. The clergy are phonies for the most part, but some are good guys who cannot challenge the diocese because they fear retribution.

I can't believer that this nonsense continues at Oll. More surprised at the pastor and former classmate

That sounds like the right thing to do Frank. The antics of Anthony are a complete distraction to the reason we are going to mass, and we should feel uplifted when we leave mass instead of feeling that the mass was just a show. My daughter and her family had attended Msgr's masses before he became Pastor and had inspired me that we were getting a conservative Pastor. When he arrived and we listened to his mass, and saw Fr Blockley running around the altar looking like a hippy, and acting like Anthony,
I looked at them, and they shrugged their shoulders, and his induction with his being likened to A MODERN DAY John the Baptist,
caused us to stop going to his masses. We go to mass to honor our Lord, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, and his Crucifixion for our sins, and the Transubstantiation of the Bread and Wine.
God bless you Frank, I feel that we are Brothers in Jesus.

Oh, I think Anthony the EM is gone from these forums for good! He either came to a realization about his terrible un-Christian like behavior (due to the prayers headed by Toni Pom Pom and her prayer group for him), or maybe his wife told him going on here was only fueling more and more of his rage.

WHG, We can only hope for the best, but I believe that Anthony has to deal with his own Devils, and his cross and follow Jesus. He can not be healed, just like a drunk, unless they realize their problem.
It was you good catholic that drew out Anthony from his hiding place,
and his false beliefs. Please do not stop praying for him, as he may be at his cross-road of his life. Which path he will chose is his own decision, and our Lord can only reveal himself to him, and he must chose what path to follow. I feel that he is too close to his problem to realize the truth, and the mis-guided teachings that he is following. My eldest grand-son just told me tonight that he was told by a Priest during mass at St. James on Hicksville Road, that no one was to receive the host on their tongues, which is quite contrary to what the Pope had said.
I advised him to speak to the Msgr about this, as I have gone to that Church, and kneel before the EU, and received the host on my tongue. Unfortunately young people take as gospel the teachings given to them by those in authority. I advised him also to stick out his tongue when he is to receive the host at the next mass, and let me know if they refused to administer the host to him.
I will personally go and speak to the Msgr, and show him what the Pope had said. If we do nothing, and act as sheep, we will be mislead by the Judas goat, and be led to the slaughter.

Sound like your grandson has a great model in his grandpa

Today is the saddest day I have ever lived through --the slaughter of the tiny innocents
In conn. has me reeling - as most Americans

Dear GOD IN HEAVEN!

What kind of country do we occupy?? A GODLESS ONE. As sinking faster than anyone could imagine.

Can't even process the agony of the families

We have become a Country that "Slaughters the Innocents". I put up the petition to end the abortions and wound up with only 2 signing up on that petition. I had circulated it all over the country through the health-care topix site. The only two that signed the petition was myself and my daughter. England's NHS(National Health Service) had posted that they had euthanized 136,000 people in 2011. They with-hold medications that could prolongate life as a waste for the elderly, and that is where the Obama-care health system is heading. The corruption of the family, and schools, and the trafficking of drugs to a point where they are into the grade and gramma schools was predicted by a book in the 1950's called
"NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON". That was the start of the Socialists getting even with the USA. They destroyed Joseph McCarthy for exposing the Socialists in Hollywood and the Government. If you look as the USSR the country took away the children and controlled
them. They were(and in large part) are still a Atheistic country.
What is the USA becoming? Exactly the same through false religious teachings, and destruction of the family. Evil is on the march, and no one can recognize it or believe it is happening, not even the leaders of our Church's. Norman Matoon Thomas who ran for President under the Socialist ticket said in 1944:
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.
But, under the name of "Liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened"
He went on to say: "I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party.
The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.
The Prediction Of Norman Mattoon Thomas Is Coming True(he rand for president 6 times)

Today, even the most socialist Dems will still deny that their policies and the policies of Barack Obama are socialistic.
Thomas was right. We Americans will never “knowingly” adopt socialism.

Wake up America, Socialism is here already!!!

Norman Thomas
Norman Mattoon Thomas was an American Presbyterian minister who achieved fame as a socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.(Wikipedia)
Born: November 20, 1884, Marion
Died: December 19, 1968
Education: Princeton University, Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, Bucknell University

God have mercy on those innocents that were murdered, and those that are murdered by the millions each year, and GOD have mercy on the USA. Is it any wonder that GOD will put a heavy hand on the USA and the Catholic church if we do not REPENT?

Today bring to Me all Devout and Faithful Souls,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were a drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness."

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
