Archbishop: Preaching Over FIVE Minutes Is A Crime

In Santa Fe Archdiocese, USA, a “spectacular bullying of priests” is taking place, writes Damian Thompson on Twitter.com (August 17).

Vicar General Glenn Jones alerted his personnel that the archdiocese had “received reports of some homilies going on for well over the five-minute limit set by the Archbishop.”

According to Jones this “not only increases [coronavirus] exposure time to others, but increases the discomfiture of many congregants, to the point of some not attending Masse because of it.”

Therefore Archbishop John Wester announced “severe actions" against his priests "including possible suspension of the faculty to preach.”

Thompson describes Wester as “smooth and user-friendly on television” while he issues "haughty and menacing diktats to his clergy.”

Well, it all depends Archbishop, on what the homily is about? If it's more of the same rot pertaining to Liberal issues, Trans, the importance of facial coverings, or whether or not we've disinfected our hands properly on the way in to Mass , then I agree - 5 minutes is long enough! In fact, it's HEAPS TOO LONG - better still, don't talk at all!
The sort of Priests who speak endlessly about Covid …More

The sort of Priests who speak endlessly about Covid , do so, because they hate to choose the better option and preach about Christ.

Our Lord raises us way above Covid but unfortunately, your god makes use of it to steal attention from CHRIST in His Sanctuaries.

Go and roam around aimlessly in the Desert for 40 years with the rest of the virus-worshipers. You drone on and on senselessly about Covid, - in fact The degree of respect the Virus Priests have shown to Covid and false religions, shows that you have a new Master, and are prohibiting us from kneeling down before Christ, because YOUR god, (the Devil) gets insanely jealous and has prohibited us from doing so! So, who's temple IS it ? Woe betide the rational people who prefer to Adore the only One we SHOULD be bowing down to in Christian Sanctuaries - CHRIST!!

Bow down before the molten calf Pachamama in the desert if you prefer, but don't waste our time, we're more obsessed with GOD (not yours!) & obtaining the Promised Land

A five minute homily "increases the discomfiture of many congregants, to the point of some not attending Masse because of it." Sure... :P The same kind of people stand in line all night waiting for Wal-Mart to open on Black Friday
