KENAI, AK - Sr. Joyce Ross, R.C.M, again delivered the homily at the Saturday night vigil Mass at Our Lady of the Angels parish in Kenai. Rev. Andy Sensenig, O.M.I. was the celebrant otherwise.
This is in persistent and knowledgeable disobedience to Canon 767, as posted earlier on this blog here. Here are some comments from parishioners regarding this 'sermon' and the equivocations used by the Pastoral Team to explain it:
Last night's Mass featured Fr. Andy turning over the sermon to Sr. Joyce. I would say the time was 30/70, maybe 40/60 in balance between Fr. Andy's sermon and Sr. Joyce's.
At times the priests have used phrases like 'Sr. Joyce will share with us her reflections', I would guess as a way of screening what she is giving really isn't a sermon. But yesterday she referred to her time as a 'a homily', as in 'whenever I prepare a homily...'
To quote Shakespeare:
Faith, here's an equivocator that could swear in both the scales against either scale, who committed treason enough for God's sake, yet could not equivocate to heaven.
Please pray for Our Lady of the Angels parish.
