Notre Dame Formation: Two of Four Phony Catholic Women Bishops “Newly Ordained” Are Alums

000_img_0046_2

The Bishop’s staff is called a Crozier and it represents the Bishop as the Good Shepherd. Jesus, of course, is the Good Shepherd and is the model Shepherd for all the Apostles and their following successors. The croziers in this case (dripping with irony) resemble big question marks… If excommunication was not such a serious matter the photo would be laughable. Dana Reynolds pictured above (second from left) the first non-bishop woman in America, was joined by four more previously self-excommunicated lay women in Santa Barbara, California, this weekend. 

For the sake of your spiritual life, avoid these groups…

Along with the Obamarama spectacle, sponsorship of pro-homosexual event activities during Holy Week, the University of Notre Dame, and nearby St. Mary’s, can also proudly boast today that two women alums now consider themselves Roman Catholic Bishops.

Ray Grosswirth, national media liaison for CORPUS released this yesterday on his blog:

In honor of these sad times, here’s the ND lineup and victory march:

The Notre Dame Victory March

Johnson
Johnson

Rally sons of Notre Dame,
Sing her glory, and sound her fame
Raise her Gold and Blue,
And cheer with voices true,
Rah! Rah! For Notre Dame.We will fight in every game
Strong of heart and true to her name.

We will ne’er forget her
And we’ll cheer her ever,
Loyal to Notre Dame.

Chorus:

Houk
Houk

Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame
Wake up the echoes cheering her name,
Send the volley cheer on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky,What though the odds be great or small
Old Notre Dame will win over all,
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to Victory.

From The Editor:

Note also that both groups, CORPUS and Roman Catholic Women Priests, are members of the American Catholic Council…

  1. The truly crazy are hard to parody because they take the mockery seriously.
    My friends and I are anime otaku who like to cosplay, which is precisely what these woman are doing. They are dressing up and LARPing as priests. They just won’t realize it. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosplay)
    Now, to add insult to injury, it’s spectacularly BAD cosplay that any self respecting otaku would shake their heads at in derision.
