  1. St. Christopher says:

    Sanctuary for what, for whom? Very impressed with all the TLMs that are offered??? And . . . what is the use anymore? Those who attend this Church should tell the padre to start preaching about sin and the need for redemption and all that. Not attractive topics for many who attend there, to be sure.

    Going to be altar rails? And, frankly, who cares what and whom Pope Francis adores, among his leftist lexicon of revolutionary heroes? He is attempting to remake the Church in an almost anti-Catholic way. Are these people even taught the true Gospel?

  2. 1,500 acre Sanctuary? Are they starting a farm/ranch on the side?

  3. Bob One says:

    To paraphrase Oscar Romero – If I feed the hungry, I am called a saint. If I ask why there is hunger, I am called a communist. St. Christopher, I’m not sure, but I think the Pope, Francis, may be trying to live our faith rather than just talk about it. I’m sure that the Church of England, in the day, thought of Washington, Jefferson, etc. as revolutionaries trying to remake the world order and destroyers of the church. Revolutions, small and large, create change. There is no advancement with disruption. Remember, this man was shot and killed while saying Mass.

  4. Any American church named for Oscar Romero is worth driving away from. Mass at Rosa Parks is a little fishy too.

  5. Your Fellow Catholic says:

    I’ve loved learning more about this growing parish. From what I see, it is committed to the vision of Justice, as Christ himself presents. It is serious about prayer and the welcoming Christ into our hearts that should be the center of every parish. It is serious about welcoming newcomers and long-time catholics. I hope I get to visit soon. And I’d be happy to sit with Rosa Parks and to honor Blessed Bishop Romero.
