Have the smelly sheep, the self-absorbed, Promethean, neo-Pelagians of Toronto just won victory over clericalism?

Can it be true?

Have the smelly, rigid sheep and self-absorbed, Promethean, neo-Pelagians of Toronto just won a victory over clericalism?

Did the sons of St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. Philip Neri just fall down like a house of cards in the face of Catholic laity taking up their rights under Canon 212?

Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen!

Vox, stop speaking in riddles and don't keep us in suspense! Are you saying that they cancelled Fr. Mongeau's guest homily?

Mr. Vox, what is this about?

Good morning, both of you,

Well, to be brief, the Oratorians invited Father Gilles Mongeau, S.J., to deliver the homily on St. Philip's Day, May 26, St. Philip Neri being the founder of the Oratory. It is to be a Solemn Mass in the traditional Rite.

Now, I've never met Father Mongeau, never written about him, I only put up a poster of the Mass, a poster written by the Oratorians which confirms what was in their bulletin.

It seems a few people knew of Father Mongeau and others, using a modern tool called the Internet and Google, were able to find out much more. Far be it from me to criticise any local clergy.

However, it seems that some rigid traditionalists and self-absorbed, Promethean, neo-Pelagians took it upon themselves to begin a campaign of email, telephone calls and requests for meetings with the Oratorian Fathers to discuss the matter.

My sources tell me that these smelly sheep did not receive a reply.

Yet, it seems that changes are a coming.

You'd expect that the backgrounds of all guest speakers (particularly religious ones) would be thoroughly investigated prior to the invitation being issued. This is a grave error unworthy of the Oratorians & someone should take a knock. Congratulations to those who took the time & made the necessary checks to bring sanity to the situation.

Why, yes, those people were victorious. All of the posters with Mongeau's name were taken down upon my arrival at Holy Family yesterday and the Oratorian Fathers seem determined to not mention his name or the affair again. Laus Deo. Deo Gratias.

If it has in fact been cancelled, then now comes the bigger question of who the hell at the Oratory authorized and organized it in the first place? The fact that it was even considered shows that there are some very, very big problems there.

So was his invitation to do the homily cancelled? Or did they just take down the publication of his name, but they're proceeding as planned anyway?

To the anonymous writer at 5:01 and 5:02:

All very good questions. Questions that have not been answered. The Oratorian Fathers have been very quiet about this. They didn't even mention it in the Sunday sermon. My best hope is that the invite was indeed cancelled and Fr. Mongeau won't be coming. We can only hope.

Was there anybody there last evening who attended and can confirm?

The Jesuit was not there.

They went from the Gospel to the Creed.

There was no homily.
