In Defence Of Father Robert Mann
I found on my comment box the following post:
[…]. Fr. Robert Mann, who has sometimes commented on this blog is in a great deal of trouble for asking a teacher to remind pupils attending a Mass in preparation for their Confirmation that they should not come forward for Holy Communion if they did not attend Mass the Sunday before without having a valid reason. The teacher marched the pupils out of the church back to school. Parents became involved and were outraged at a priest saying this. Protests were organized…and of course guess who the archdiocese sided with…yep the parents. So giving Holy communion to anyone now is fine. Please pray for Fr.Mann, the battle is by no means over.
Seriously, what disgraceful times we live in. This is an exemplary priest who is doing exactly what he has been ordained for, and is attacked by the bigotry of stupid laymen. Unsurprisingly, the Apparatchicks of the Archdiocese then side with the angry (and, I am rather sure, gravely sinning; then those who have a clean conscience do not react in this way upon hearing basic facts of Catholicism) teacher, then in the Church of Francis the only grave sin is to remind the faithful about the very existence of grave sins.
It’s time to put Catholicism back in Catholicism. People like the Protestant teacher in question have no business teaching in a Catholic school, at all. They should pray and, in time, convert.
The enemy is among us.
Please pray for the good father, and for the restoration of sanity.
