Unlikely; Jesus is not in the Roman Church at all. Were he, he would not have explained numerous times those who would come preaching "another jesus", the harlot, ect ect..
Saying you profess Jesus is very typical. It is like a Freemason who professes Jesus. They are not Christian.
Luke 6:46 And why call all of you me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
There is more...
The mark of the beast. We are told about this 'mark of the beast' that it is in the hand or forehead. This is symbolic language as one professes god but then does not do the things written. God's people will follow him 100%, and only him. Asking a priest to forgive sin or praying to the 'virgin mary' is not of God who tells us to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus.
...and you're too blind to notice its YOU guys Christ was referring to when He warned of people that would preach another Jesus.

I understand that you get an adrenaline rush while flirting with apocalyptic end of the world crap. I used to too. But that's not what Christianity is supposed to be focused on.

For us, the end of this world is when we die. God already knows when your last breath will be, Soc.
You should try and focus on your 'final battle' instead of the mark of the beast and anti Christ; or floods, famine and war.

The daily Mass is very profound. Its quite and intimate. Sometimes its held in the lower chapel with the Priest, a server, and a dozen laity.
I once went to Church every single day for two weeks when I was out of work. Its indescribable how close we can get to God through the Mass and Eucharist.
Now I usually take in an evening weekday Mass once or twice a week as well as the Sunday Mass.

Its getting more and more full at those daily Masses too. Even the Priest has acknowledged this. Usually in summers, people don't want to sit in the heat and go to Church on a Tue night. But this summer I notice allot more than usual.

As usual, your links didn't work. You might be confusing a 'special youth Mass' with a regular Mass.
Youth groups do a Mass on occasion where there is rock band type music and the kids dance around. The liturgy of the Eucharist is more focused however.
Also, a Priest may have done a Mass for terminal kids at a hospital, and dressed up like Barney at the end. I certainly don't have a problem with that, do you?

being Called by God to Preach is the highest employment in the World,
The priest was just making a point to the young lad when he made that analogy that maybe it was only the rector's breathing.

Many people with active imaginations believed that a god was calling them to preach "his" truth.

That arrogant thought-process was at work in Pat Robertson's brain just lately when he admitted after the flub that he got his message all wrong.

When you see evil in others and not in your self, it's time to choose other scriptures on which to focus so that you can do some work at home rather than trying to improve the behavior of your neighbors.

Your getting nastier and nastier.
Devout believers that perceive they see evil ONLY in others and holiness in their selves ... ARE born-again and again and again idiots.

They keep feeding the wolf inside their selves that craves to believe the self is aligned to the "perfection" of a god ... of all the stupid things on which to focus.

You are simply mortal humans with self-centered human behavior ... and nothing makes that more clear than how you USE your religions.

"I am HOLY and you are EVIL" is a ridiculous self-ingratiating attitude.

When you behave as idiots, you ARE idiots!!!

It's called "tough love"--- June!!
So you call your Catholic favoritism "tough love???"

My guess is, those who were tortured and burned at the stake didn't call it tough LOVE. They probably just called it TOUGH ... as in the same type of treatment committed by "Bubba from the mafia!"

Hey sera, what's your point? We already know this stupidity is out there. No faithful Catholic is going to defend this. Are your intentions here to ridicule and shame Catholics by highlighting misguided Catholics and wishy-washy Catholic priests? Would you like us to post shameful behavior by the Orthodox?

When you claim that a creator favors ONLY what you believe, you have made a statement FOR the supposed creator.

I conclude that it's far more safe to believe that a creator doesn't exist, than to make wild and wooly statements that others need to be corrected and that I am serving the creator exactly the way the creator WANTS to be served.

Then if I am judged in an afterlife, I can express that the way religion was taught on earth made no sense to me and that I refused to believe a creator was leading anyone to say or do anything.

It is common sense that if I don't want others referring to me as an evil offender of a god, I should not refer to others as evil offenders of a god.

June, You are deceived big time, you claim you once followed religion, but you have never followed God ever.
Anyone who is truly reborn in the Spirit of God, would walk away from God and denounce Him as you have.
I backslide once and it was hell for me I was tormented, I couldn't even sleep.
I can guess and it would be a good one that when you lay your head on your pillow at night your mind turns to your immortality.
To be separated from God for all eternity would be hell it self.
It takes great faith to believe in nothing June, your own body speaks of the great miracle of life and how God fashioned man from the dust of the earth.
I would rather be a believing Idiot then a Idiot that believes nothing.
But that is your choice June you made for yourself, I had a choice also and I chose God.
Your constant hounding people, trying to turn them against God .
Is being anti-Christ, which means you are pro-satan.
Which means the father of lairs rocks your world and you don't even know it.
You think its all about you, LOL silly woman. satan has your calling card and some day he will collect your soul, because he already owns it.

If a creator exists, that creator already knows why I left religion, so no explanation in an afterlife would be necessary.

I have always refused to use religion as a weapon against others.

For instance, I never believed that a god wanted homosexuals stoned to death, or that a god wanted them even corrected for having consensual sex ... so I treated them with dignity.

I didn't use words from a bible to harm them ... and for that I have no need to beg my self for forgiveness. When I think of homosexuals ... I am at peace with my self ... and for that I AM thankful.

And if a creator exists, when my time comes to be judged, I will welcome the creator's advice of how I could have done it better, when (from my limited way of perceiving) I was already doing my best.

Ok. I viewed it. Im not sure what your goal is here. Actually, i have a good idea what your goal is. You wanna attempt to smear the Catholic Mass by implying that we worship like this.

For starters, the last piece in your video wasn't a Catholic Mass at all. I think it was Episcopal or Methodist. The other ones weren't done at a Church and appear to be at a hospital or care center somewhere.(like i stated earlier...perhaps the costumes were for terminally sick children?)
Either way, i have never seen or heard of anything like that, and don't approve of it -but i guess i understand a Mass for kids with cancer if thats what it was.
I am a traditional Catholic, and i believe in a traditional Mass. I try and only take communion from a Priest too. I cringe when I see a kid with a Basketball jersey and his sister with a tank top receiving the Holy Eucharist.
That's why i appreciate the beauty of the Orthodox Mass.

It's a horrible way to teach vulnerable little children who have no defense against such vile self-serving dogmas.
