Kudos To Father Burke!

I have been informed that this past Sunday a person attempted to disrupt the celebration of the Old Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Philadelphia.

An eye witness tells me a man attending the TLM went up to the Communion rail and instead of accepting the Host on the tongue as is the norm (and the rubrically correct way) he put his hands into the "receiving position" and ignored Father Burke's attempts to offer Communion. Father Burke then moved on to the next communicant.

This fellow got up and followed Father Burke shoving his hands over the heads of the kneeling communicants at Father Burke, who cooly ignored the man and continued to distribute to those properly disposed communicants.

The Novus Ordo plant then gave up and marched out of the church.

The man in question obviously had a point of some sort to make, but Father Burke was quick to protect our Lord from defilement. And make no mistake, the priest did not deny the man communion, the man rejected communion according to the traditional norms.

But I am certain good ole' Cardinal Rigali will not approve of this.

I have no idea exactly what point this person was trying to make other that to prove he is totally rude & inconsiderate to others. As for his lack of reverance to the Real Presence in the Eucharist, well that goes without saying.
