When was the last time Muslims celebrated Easter by singing Catholic hymns? That's right, never. "Ecumenical diversity" is a one-way street.

I agree! Obviously, the answer is “Never”!, but then, we keep on doing this - in the name of ‘ecumenism and religious tolerance’.

Nowadays, there is a prayer petition going like this:

“For our ... brethren -.who are celebrating ... May God ...”

So, I just made a sour face and lukewarmly replied, “Lord, hear our prayer...”

I've got some good news for you J G Tasan :) You don't have to feel guilty or even "lukewarm" in your endorsement of a prayer petition "For our (anti-Christian, blaspheming) bretheren who are celebrating (whatever anti-Christian, blaspheming holiday)."

It's all a matter of understanding the nature of the petition itself. Technically, they are our bretheren. All people are "brothers" in that …More
I've got some good news for you J G Tasan :) You don't have to feel guilty or even "lukewarm" in your endorsement of a prayer petition "For our (anti-Christian, blaspheming) bretheren who are celebrating (whatever anti-Christian, blaspheming holiday)."

It's all a matter of understanding the nature of the petition itself. Technically, they are our bretheren. All people are "brothers" in that we are all fellow children of God and His handiwork. That remains true in spite of their obstinate refusal to follow God's one true Faith within His One True Church. So the term "bretheren" is accurate.

It's a meritorious act of Christian charity to pray for unbelievers. Christ Himself prayed for his persecutors, even while hanging from the cross in unimaginable agony.

As Catholics, we can and probably even should pray that God treat today's unbelievers mercifully and grant them the grace to open their hearts to His Son Jesus and His Church. All the moreso when they're celebrating some foul anti-Christian parody of a "holiday" (a word deriving from the term holy day).

The important difference is that praying FOR a sinner does not imply that we should condone the sin they commit, which is exactly what modernist hippy-dippy ecumenical clergy would like us to do.

I'll give you an even tougher example... praying "for the intentions of the supreme Pontiff" in a group rosary. Oh dear... :P

I personally know of a pastor who felt compelled to explain why it is still licit for devout Catholics to pray for "intentions of the supreme Pontiff" aka (the intentions of the Holy Father).

The pastor pointed out that the intentions themselves, are all quite laudable. How certain agencies within the Vatican would apply those intentions to the world and The Church is an entirely different matter.

He drew a further distinction between praying for Pope Francis' published intentions and whatever personal intentions the man might have, either for the world or The Church.

Apparently much of the pastor's flock were bleating rather nervously at the idea of praying to God for anything Pope Francis might intend, as well they should. ;-)

Yes, I do pray to Mother Mary for Anti-Pope Francis’ conversion of heart, including those who have strayed away (e.g. Pachamama worship) and lapsed Catholics.
J G Tasan
On the “intention of the Supreme Pontiff” --> just recite the “Our Father” would be sufficed!

Now you're going to get me all nit-picky about Francis being a supposed "anti-Pope" -but you already know that. :D

Silly nuns, lost their heads.

No longer Catholics, pray for them
