Saint Joan of Arc Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota substituted a children’s message from the United Nations for the Scriptures. The first reading on May 20 was this:
“We are not the sources of problems; We are the resources that are needed to solve them. We are not expenses; We are investments. We are not just young people; We are people and citizens of this world. You call us the future, But we are also the present.”
Hum, it is a cute secular message, but I could not imagine replacing the Word of God with the Word of the UN. It appears that sometimes the laity are the ones who give the religious message at Masses. Their bulletin this week says that the pagan Gyuto Monks Tibetan Tantric Choir would be chanting at all liturgies this past weekend. Song is worship, so I suppose here is another instance of false worship in a Catholic setting. As I read their site, they seem to break a lot of the rules and even seem to condone homosexual activity and same-sex adoption. Is this place for real? I would think the bishop would shut them down.
