So. Went to an afternoon Mass on Friday. It was the Vietnamese priest again. Homily began after a short while. He was preaching about love, as usual. And then, he mentioned Warren Buffet. Then he mentioned that there are two political parties in power, and that one of them has the nerve to protect the rich from getting taxed more. He mentioned Bill Clinton's name later on. And his homily ended with the slogan: "Yes We Can."
I believe that the Norvus Ordo Mass is vaild. I think that this man is a priest, no matter how wrong his opinions are. And I think it was the Body of Christ that we took.
But after this episode...I may inconvenience the family a great deal now to get to that boring old FSSP Mass on the bad part of town. I know we should focus on Christ and the prayer of the Mass more than the personality of a priest...but this one was bad. He basically turned the Mass into a political event, and I could see winces and sniggers among the laity there.
