Each year, at this time, Beth Tikvah holds services and activities for Rosh Hashanah in our church and throughout our campus. Their Hoffman Estates synagogue is not large enough to host these events and we are delighted to share our beautiful spaces of worship and learning with our Jewish neighbors.
Rosh Hashanah literally means “Head of the Year,” and refers to the celebration of a new Jewish year. This holiday marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, and provides an opportunity to examine our actions from the preceding year through prayer. Rosh Hashanah is a joyous and meaningful holiday celebrated by special customs.
When you see members from Beth Tikvah please give them a warm Holy Family welcome. They will be with us September 24 and 25 and rejoining us for Yom Kippur services on October 3 and 4.
If this would not deserve the stake, I do not know what does.
A “c”atholic priest explains to his parishioners that as the infidels* have not enough space to celebrate their infidel rite, the parish “welcomes” them not to convert, but to consolidate themselves into error and infidelity. In order to do this, Christ will be covered everywhere. We must be sensitive, you know.
The text says “provides an opportunity to examine our actions”, as if we, Catholics, would follow, or need to follow, the Jewish festivities, or if they could be of any profit to us. The stink of “one world religion” is very strong.Then there is the invitation to give a warm welcome to Jews who come to worship their strange religion in the house of the Lord, who is then covered as to not offend their sensitive, heathenish eyes.
This is beyond parody.
Incredibile as it may seem, this appears to be a priest in good standing, not one of those breakaway communities who call themselves “catholic” for reasons of their own invention.
Can’t wait for TMAHICH to praise the man; of course, three seconds before repeating to us that those who do not choose Christ end up choosing the devil.
This pope has deserved these priests. These priests have deserved this Pope.
A rebellious laity unwilling to accept the basics of God’s law has deserved both.
The stake would do a lot of good to this chap (apparently even a Dominican). For once it would do a lot to try to save his soul.
But certainly, it would purify the air from this unbearable stench of heathenism in our own ranks.
*Think twice, and instruct yourself, before posting that “the Jews are not Infidels”.
