Yesterday at St. Rose of Lima Church in Eddystone PA, located within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Deacon Anthony DiIenno committed sacrilege while giving the homily at Mass. See for yourselves, from the facebook page of his very misguided daughter.
UPDATE - She pulled the post or changed its privacy settings. I had a feeling that might happened so I saved a screen-shot of it. Below is that screen shot in lieu of the post.
Apparently the mask had to do with some football game. No matter. Holy Mass is not the time to be acting like a juvenile. Mass is about Our Lord Jesus Christ and nothing else. This Holy Sacrifice, which is the most important event of the week for any Catholic, is not to be trivialized for any reason.
Please contact this parish, St Rose of Lima in Eddystone. Also register a complaint with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. We as faithful Catholics must raise our voices when Our Lord is outraged during Holy Mass. This deacon needs to issue a public apology for his sacrilege. If he won't, he should be disciplined and even laicized. From his daughter's facebook page, we know he is a grandfather. He knows better than that.This behavior is unacceptable.
Speaking of facebook, one can go to the parish's facebook page from the link on the parish webpage. Please do that and leave your respectful but firm complaint.
