God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

A Catholic burial for me but not for thee...

So it seems that the Diocese of Rome has refused a Catholic funeral Mass for a Nazi. Here's the story:

The man must have been a walking waste of human flesh. Period. BUT IMO he was just as deserving of a Catholic funeral as Senator Ted Kennedy. Perhaps more so as Kennedy enabled the slaughter of millions while Priebke murdered a few hundred. Yes, the man was a Holocaust denier. So what? If he admitted his role in the murders of his specific victims and asked for God's forgiveness via the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation I'd think that would be sufficient. Hey, I don't know for certain, I'm just a retired submarine mechanic and not a theologian.But until someone with more authority in this corrects me I'll keep on keeping on.

Denying Priebke a Catholic funeral was as wrong as a football bat. According to several reports, he was in full communion with the Church. End of story.

We don't know just how the mercy of God works, passing judgment of this sort is a violation of the 2nd Commandment because when it's done we're abrogating God's role in judging someone. The funeral Mass is an occasion to pray for the forgiveness of the soul of the deceased and that applies to all of us.

Sub - I was shocked by this whole episode. It reminds me of when Patheos blogger Elizabeth Scalia wished someone or another to a life in hell. WTHeck??? As Catholics we should be wishing for the redemption of all souls.
