The thoughts and musings of a Roman Catholic in the Archdiocese of Washington.
During the Prayers of the Faithful, this one came up: "Pray for those unjustly treated because of their sexual orientation."
I know a place where this happened but only because the pastor had not reviewed the material prior to the liturgy.It was provided in materials many parishes subscribe to and probably was read in many churches that day.
All the more reason to get rid of the Prayer of the Faithful!The "petitions" end up being agenda driven and ideological.Any petition that beings with "That" or has a clause beginning "so that" is ridiculous in telling God what to do.
Yes! Actually, I am not sure if it occured at Sunday Mass, but I heard it read by the priest at daily Mass this week. What is going on?
It been prayed at my parish in the petitions and certainly I pray privately that those unjustly treated for any reason.
