Leonardi reports the latest news on the Sr.
Anne parish “Father” Joan pastoral administrator debacle.
The woman you are speaking about also
was seen wearing a t-shirt with an image of the nativity scene with one
major alteration – the words ‘Its a girl!’ and the Crucifix she wears
is different as well – the Corpus is not Christ, but clearly a woman.
She also shared in a meeting that she has been waiting since the 1970s
for the Church to ordain women and she thinks the time is finally upon
us. A letter is on the way to the Papal Nuncio’s office if it has not
yet arrived and attached are several signatures of eye-witnesses to
Rich previously reported on what a now former parishioner
had to say.
At the “third informational meeting”
held before she was officially acting as the administrator, she made 2
statements, in front of a good size representation of the congregation,
when asked if some of the previous traditional liturgical practices
would remain the same at Saint Anne’s. She replied, “I AM what I AM and
it IS what it IS”.
When asked about wanting to become a priest, she announced quite
boldly, “It is no secret that since 1975, I have wanted to become a
priest.” When asked by a parishoner if she understood that this was
against the acceptance of the Catholic Church, she told the parishoner
that he was “out of line”. This was very confusing to many of us, as we
still cannot figure out exactly what or who, it IS she THINKS she IS.
I wonder how many people in this diocese have the date of the Bishop’s
75th Clarks birthday memorized?
