On Sunday At Mass With “Parochial Announcements”

29 Jul

A Lovely Opera Singer called Patricia, acted as Cantor at the Sunday 1PM Mass at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens, NY.
She is Latina. She made my day, cheerfully belting out Modern But Catholic, Doctrinally Sound Hymns.
Msgr Patrick Fursey O’Toole, Senior Priest now residing in Florida & Irish Born, ordained for the R C Diocese of Brooklyn, NY, offered the Mass of the 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time, also known as 7th Sunday After Pentecost. For his Homily, he spoke of Pearls and How at the End of Time, God will collect those Pearls at the End of Time.

The “Francis  Effect” (As in Fr. Passenant):
In attempting to add some pizzaz to Parish Announcements, Fr. Frank Passenant, when reading the Parish Announcements, says “Now for the Parochial Announcements.”
Parochial simply means Local. So, near the end of Sunday’s Mass, Msgr O’Toole also intoned “Parochial Announcements.”
Methinks that Fr. Passenant should have “Parochial Announcements” Copyrighted and Trademarked.
Think of The Royalties for THAT Statement.
