Deacon Presides Over [invalid] Mass – Francis, “You Go Ahead”

And the following is an exact transcription of his words concerning the celibacy of the clergy and the “Masses” that already are said to be celebrated by married deacons in the Amazon, with the authorization of the local bishops and the support of Pope Francis.

AND THE POPE SAID: “GO AHEAD!”
I feel it is fitting to recall, together with you, that the Church of priests is coming to an end. Is this a prophecy? No, it is the reality. This has to be taken into account, because it changes completely. We are now reaching the height of folly, every priest is taking care of six parishes, but this is how it ends. This crisis of the priesthood in any case will increase relentlessly, until serious consideration is finally given to the suitability of abolishing the celibacy of priests.
As long as this celibacy of priests remains, the decline is unstoppable, in part because very often there is no reflection on the fact that I, for example, am a priest, but before being a priest I am a monk. Francesco, who is here, is a monk, and since [we] are a very small monastic community of prayer we have given to the Church of Bologna the gift of five priests, but we have been able to do so because we belong to a different breed. But as long as there continues a situation according to which - you get it, right? - the fact of remaining celibate is purely an arrangement of the disciplinary order, juridical, not a vow, not a gift of God, not supported by the life of the community… That’s all it is, he doesn’t get married, the rule is that he cannot marry. But it is clear that when I find out that a thirty-year-old priest who comes to me for confession, now they are putting him in a big rural area by himself, in six months he has a mistress. And so now this decline will be very rapid. They other day someone told me that if one does the math, in 2030 Bologna will have 30 priests. Right now there are 450, and that’s already a big decline. And so this structure of the Church will no longer be there.
The synod of bishops for the Amazon is taking place. We found out that in the Amazon one evening, from an isolated mission parish in the Amazon they made a pone call, it was an old deacon, in his sixties, married, who said to his bishop: “I have to tell you that tomorrow there won’t be any Mass, because there is no priest.” And the bishop told him: “You go there and say Mass.” A married deacon, children already raised, the “elders” are called, and the bishops there have given him authorization to preside over the liturgy. They told the pope about this and the pope said: “For now we cannot write anything, you go ahead!” I wondered, when I found out that he was convening the worldwide meeting of bishops for the Amazon, who knows if perhaps he can or wants to say something. But the Church, in its concrete juridical structure, as it exists now, is at an end.

This is beyond shocking
I feel sick to my stomach at this sacrilege committed by a married deacon with the approval of his bishop.

The hidden Church in Japan survived centuries w/o priests or holy mass. No deacons playing priest needed.

Very true. The hidden Church was composed of loyal genuine converts, not the barely converted who stay Catholic for whatever hand-outs the Church gives.

Heaven is harder to reach than a olympic medall!

So heaven ist the highest and greatest thing to reach out for-

All those money is nothing -compared to heaven!

Of course we have to pray and to work to get through so-

But when we absolute hope and love and trust in god, and do our duties
We make it

The purpose of synod is not doctrinal. It is to provide a framework for the Germans to end celibacy.

Most permanent deacons in my area are malformed half-wits. This would be a disaster.

Tmanc ---exactly as planned, sadly. It is a deconsecration of the the most sacred office. Married priests, female priests, non-priests. We might even one day see the laity celebrating Mass since they are already allowed to do the readings and give out the Eucharist.
