Corpus Christi Sunday–Prepare for Possible Heresy!

by Steve Ray on May 20, 2008

loaves-fishes-tilapia002.jpgJesus didn't really do a miracle, right? He just taught everyone to care and share, right? You've heard that homily, right? The people had all brought picnic baskets which they kept hidden up under their robes. Jesus convinced them all to pull out their picnic baskets to share with everyone else. The REAL miracle was not in multiplying loaves and fish, but in teaching people to share.

Isn't that sweet. And after they all shared their food Jesus taught them to sing "Kum Ba Ya" and started a liturgical dance. A good time was had by all! Or so say the trendy homilists!

Well I had ENOUGH of that nonsense. I sat at Mass on Corpus Christi Sunday and heard the priest insult the intelligence of everyone in the church. He also insulted the Word of God and the tradition of the Church. He twisted the Gospel reading like a rubber nose and I almost stood up to protest. But my good wife said, "Steve, no! Go home and write!" So I did.

About 12 pages later I had written a very thorough response to the priest and to all others who preach this nonsense. I sent a copy to the priest, to his bishop and to Catholic Answers. It was then published in the January issue of THIS ROCK Magazine. I hope this thorough rebuttal of nonsense will be copied and given to homilists. Hopefully we can put this insulting claptrap to bed once and for all.

My book CROSSING THE TIBER deals extensively with the Eucharist in the Old and New Tesaments and the first five centuries of Christianity. You can learn more here.

Thank you, Steve!!! I love you for being a voice for so many! As converts we love having (finally) found the Truth (with a capital T) and no one – absolutely no one – is going to take it away from us! I was at a Mass last week where the precious old Priest announced we were going to take Mary off the pillar and she was just like one of us – we could also just have any other woman or mother in the pews pray for us. I nearly went bezerk – I wanted to stand and shout (I heard the Lord say, “Attitude, Attitude!” because I was furious) so I did not – will not – but I wanted to shout, “She is the Ark of the Covenant! She is like no other!” You did it right by writing Truth for all of us. Keep on keeping on.

Hi,
I came across your website googling for “bread fish and Jesus” picture I need for tommorows sunday church information and I’ve read your comment about the miracle on the desert.
I would strongly recommend the book I’am reading at the moment: The Eternal Man by Gilbert K. Chesterton. If you would like to discuss it, mail me.
Greetings from Poland.
Bogna
