Sadly there are selfish beings who think that their private masses are more important than lives. These altar huggers are the same people who would turn their backs on their neighbours if given the chance. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Nuts. What an excuse of a priest !!! Keep the doors shut.. time to move on and make the churches a thing of the past 👌🏻

Well man up and say NO..the church vows down to everyone due to all the scandals.. Take your power back.. Be our leaders at this time ... How the tables have turned.... 'Is there anything to be said for another mass' 😂 I wonder would holy water cute covid 19 They need to see that video of the Italian Mayors?

This is exactly when priests should be praying for and saying mass! The hunters become the hunted. The church should tell them use the font, COVID-19 soup it undoubtably is. The same Catholic Church was interviewed last week in RTÉ and said they were disappointed with the drop in funds because of the cancellation if masses due to collections not taking place. They also set up online platforms pleading with parishioners to donate. Cop on

This bishop gets it right: So selfish to want to worship God in the Mass. So selfish. So, sel-... Wait, isn't this what God commanded us to do? Enough with the fake news. Thought they had unlimited protection.....that's what we were taught in school!! Yeah right sure there asking for online donations as I've said before I a previous post in the famine they closed there doors when people starved I have faith but in a time a need people and organisations show there true colours

You were never concerned about ‘selfish’ parishioners before Mr. Doran so do not let them bother you now. Father Alton Crosby would, 'He gives good mass'. Couldn’t they tape the mass from RTE 1 & replay it as many times they want Don't blame them it's not their fault It's a sickness Mass addiction is real
