As I was attending Mass yesterday (maskless and proud), something from the Gospel really stuck out like a sore thumb. Tell me if you catch it…
GOSPEL Mark 16:14-20
At that time, Jesus appeared to the eleven as they were at table: and he upbraided them with their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe them who had seen him after he was risen again. And he said to them: “Go ye into the whole world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall he condemned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils. They shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents: and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them. They shall lay their hand upon the sick: and they shall recover.”
And the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God. But they going forth preached every where: the Lord working withal, and confirming the word with signs that followed.
Did you notice it? Let me spell it out for you in caps lock: “THEY SHALL LAY THEIR HAND UPON THE SICK”.
👏🏻THIS 👏🏻IS 👏🏻 NOT 👏🏻 CATHOLICISM 👏🏻
This is shameful. This is gross. And this needs to STOP. Fear is a pathetic look on clergy. Get over yourselves and preach the Gospel of Christ, not the Gospel of Covid. Would JESUS wear GLOVES to administer the sick? No. Why? Because He didn’t while He was on earth. HE TOUCHED the lepers, He TOUCHED the sick.
I hope anyone who supports this covid-church behavior (masks, banned people from the Sacraments, gloves, Eucharistic abuses, jabs) feels ashamed, because you should be ashamed. Just stop, it’s so cringe and so anti-Christ.
I’ll just leave with this photo of SAINT Charles Borromeo administering to the plague victims.
