Novus Ordo Watch: No. 1
I’m opening a Novus Ordo Watch, to chronicle the horrors perpetrated by some priests when celebrating Mass according to the Missal of Pope Paul VI. Here’s one for starters.
A few weeks ago, a little girl well known to me—let’s call her Polynesia—quarrelled with her big sister and tried to kick her. Polynesia lost her balance, fell over and sprained an ankle. At Mass the following Sunday, hobbling on crutches, she joined the queue for Holy Communion.
When she reached the priest, he beamed and said: “Whatever have you been doing to yourself? Aren’t you the terrible girl now? Body of Christ.”
