It took me a day before I could bring myself to finish reading The Boston Globe article on the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston's decision to ban a scheduled Mass with the theme "All are Welcome."
St. Cecilia Parish had planned the Mass to commemorate Boston's Gay Pride month. Spokespersons for the diocese believe it gave an unintended impression that the Mass is in support of Gay Pride week. The article cites the source of the opposition stemming from a post by a local blogger, Joe Sacerdo. "There's not a place for a Mass like that in the Catholic Church." Hmm ... the Mass is not a place to celebrate Gospel values of love, mercy, peace, reconciliation, non-judgment ... confusing indeed.
