I posted this anonymously because people know where I go to Mass and I don't want to identify which priest did this at which chapel. But a Jew came to Mass today. He was dressed like an orthodox Jew with a hat and a yarmulke. He took off his hat at Mass but retained his yarmulke. He was wearing those strings that come down on both sides from his belt that remind me of a brown scapular. Typical Jew. He arrived early. He asked if this was where there was a Church service and we said yes. He prayed the rosary with us before Mass. He was very respectful. He was always crossing himself and knelt at the right times. I could not hear if he sung hymns. He stayed right to the end and talked to the priest after Mass. When Communion time came I put my head in my hands because he got up and went up to Communion and I was like "no!" though I did not say anything out loud or make a scene. When he got up to the front in his yarmulke the priest talked to him before he received and then he gave him Communion. I was like to myself "the priest just gave Communion to a Jew". We learned later the priest asked him "are you Catholic" and he said "yes I am a Catholic". But he was dressed like an orthodox Jew so that some people thought he was a Rabbi. He sat with us for a long time after Mass as we sung the Litany of the Saints and did nothing wrong except go to Communion. We talked after Mass among ourselves. Some people were upset, including I, but I was not the most upset. One man said as Christ said to the lady at the well we should not give Communion to the dogs. Another lady said we should be welcoming. I was hoping he was one of those Novus Ordo "Hebrew Catholics" so at least he was baptized. He said our Mass was "a treasure" and he said he was "a Jew and a Catholic". Father said he will speak to him about some things if he becomes a regular. When I first saw him I thought he would make trouble and he did, but not in the way I expected. So an SSPX priest gave a Jew wearing a yarmulke Communion, though in his defense the Jew declared that he was a Catholic at the altar rail. Is this a sign of SSPX liberalism, or just a strange awkward moment? The same priest tells us not to go to the indult.
