  • That said, I would like to say, in defense of Fr. Starbuck:  some years ago now, he was very very ill with some sort of autoimmune disease. I don't remember all of the details, but he probably does not really want to get sick like that again.  It can be hard to shake that sort of experience, especially now that he is suddenly Pastor and has the care of all of these souls who need him to be well.
    Yes he was very very ill and out of commission for a long time. Thank the Lord we had three good priests at that time,and the other two priests could pick up the slack.

    Father Starbuck now has a heavy burden to carry. He's in his 60s and not in the best of health. With Father Perez's passing, Father Weist being in the hospital for several weeks, families coming to Mass when ill, and many of our chapel members being old and vulnerable, Father Starbuck has reason to be cautious.

    Let us pray for Father Starbuck, that God will give him the strength to carry on.

    I will be praying for Fr. Starbuck, but don't the vast majority of trad chapels have only one priest? I'm sure he can manage with the help of God's grace and our prayers.

    Cera, do you know who Fr. Wiest was ordained by? Maybe this has already been answered, but I know there's been some controversy about Fr. Wiest's status as a priest/who ordained him. Would you be able to shed some light on this for the benefit of those who go to OLHC or may be considering going there?
    Heart of Jesus, burning with love of us, inflame our heart with love of Thee.

  • We also have a large number of these same Catholics that have been told for many years by the SSPX leadership to stay offline, basically don't research or look into or question anything.
    It's the same at Institute of Christ the King. They want to keep the faithful ignorant like some Hollywood stereotype of peasants.

    He can cross that bridge when he gets to it. Until then he should do his duty for souls. Preemptive closure of the Church is dereliction of duty.

  • Since when are people who don’t even know Fr. Starbuck qualified to pass judgment upon him?

    Maybe the chapel should be closed if the comments I've been reading on Cathinfo are representative of the people  who go there.

  • Fr Louis Campbell is 87 years old and tends to over 600 souls at St Jude's Shrine in Stafford, TX. He is all by himself.

  • Dear Parishioners,

    The following are updates on this day before Thanksgiving, as we anticipate this holiday weekend and the first Sunday of Advent.

    As to funeral arrangements for Fr. Perez, the family informed me of their plans earlier this afternoon. I want for you to understand that this is their decision, and that I respect and am honoring that decision. The family has asked for private burial with a public Requiem Mass at a later time. They feel the need to bury sooner rather than later, and I agree with that decision. Moreover, they just lost their beloved to a virus that is still infecting our parish. The Church universal developed the catafalque for just such occasions, i.e., so that the Requiem Mass could be held with the absolutions performed over the bier vicariously when it is not possible to have the body present. The family desires to wait for the Requiem Mass at a time when they will feel comfortable attending. And that will be at least a few weeks from now. I understand the need to mourn. So I ask you to visit the table outside of the church and to write a note to express your appreciation of this great priest who gave his livelihood as pastor of this parish - nearly a quarter of a century of service.

    As you know, we will live-stream Mass on Thanksgiving morning at 9:00 a.m. There will be a brief Communion service following Mass. While the church will be closed for the Mass, we will open the doors afterwards and let people come in for Communion at the altar rail. People should not remain in the church for more than 10 minutes after receiving Communion. There will be no Confessions. Mass will be live-streamed again this Sunday at 10:00 a.m., and the church will be closed to the public. There will be no Communion after Mass. Plans are for a December 5 (Sunday) re-opening. There will only be the 7:30 and 10:00 Masses that morning.

    Circuмstances make the Christmas Novena a bit difficult this year. So I am planning to offer an enrollment for the Christmas Masses instead. There will be a card for you to give to recipients of the enrollment. All of the monies from this enrollment will go to the church in this time of need.

    I want to wish you and your family a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving and Advent. Although we have lost much, we have much for which we should be grateful!

    In our Lord,

    Fr. Starbuck

  • Fr. Starbuck keeps referring to Fr. Weist.  So he is convinced that he's a real priest?  He's seen his docuмentations?

    Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab would be proud. I'm sure all the devil worshipers behind The Great Reset and this scheme to implement global Communism and reduce the global population by 90% are insanely happy about this. They love to see promotion and buy-in to their Fear Porn agenda. Every little bit helps. If you won't promote the Great Reset and Climate Crisis, at least promote the Scamdemic. Kind of like "If you can't donate, at least share this video with your friends." These human devils hate God, remember. They don't want to see Him worshiped.

  • Why is it that people in southern California are getting COVID at high rates while people in Florida (with about the same climate) are not?

    I would say it's because there are more vaxxed people in California than in Florida. It seems highly probable now that vaccinated people are shedding the virus onto the unvaccinated.

  • We will now have a no-cough/no-sneeze policy until further notice. There is to be no coughing or sneezing inside the church. And if anyone is caught off guard, he must cover his face. If someone has a chronic cough, they are to clear that with me before attending. That way people can be assured that anyone who is coughing has a chronic (i.e., noninfectious) cough. These are protocols that were normative when I was a boy. But with the loss of etiquette and of common sense, these precautions have fallen by the wayside.
    .
    Huh? I have never heard of such a thing. Has anyone else?

    The "normative protocol" that people should cover their faces when they cough and sneeze?  Yes.  That was the "normative protocol" when I was a boy too.  In fact, here in the Midwest, almost everyone does that.  But this priest is in California.  I don't think they teach common courtesies and politeness there.
