Poll — Is an Archdiocesan Mass to honor non-Catholic and non-canonized Martin Luther King, Jr. appropriate?

 

I’m a bit twisted on this one, what’s your vote?

From the St. Louis Catholic…

Quick quiz:

How many Catholic saints had their names legally changed by their parents to pay homage to arch-heretic Martin Luther, [MY LINK] and then lived and died as a preacher in the Baptist sect?
Answer: None.
And yet, again, we face the looming date of the annual Archdiocesan Mass to honor non-Catholic and non-canonized Martin Luther King, Jr.
Neither delving into the accusations of certain sinful behaviors in his personal life, and likewise neither delving into the wonderful things he accomplished in the field of civil rights, it remains a fact that it is grossly inappropriate to celebrate a Mass “in honor” of a non-Catholic. Period.
When will this end?
Not this year, as the Review notes.

As is customary, the Archbishop will also award the “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Model of Justice Award” to area students. Right religion is a duty under the virtue of Justice; God deserves proper worship. This worship comes from the one and only true Church, the Catholic Church.

When is the Reagan Mass, or the Lincoln Mass, or Washington Mass, or the Gandhi Mass?

With all due respect to the intentions of those involved, reflexive political correctness does not justify the continuation of this event. But, this is the third year I’ve written about this, so you can see the pull this blog really has.

FINAL NOTE BEFORE THE VOTE: On Saturday, January 15th, at St. Mary’s in Portland, Oregon, Archbishop Vlazny will lead the Celebration of the Sunday Vigil Eucharist in Commemoration of the birthday of D. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Respect Life Sunday set for October 3

        Catholic parishes in western Oregon will celebrate Respect Life Sunday on October 3. That Sunday will mark the beginning of a month long observance of promoting respect for life from conception to natural death. The theme for this year is “The measure of love is to love without measure.” Archbishop John G. Vlazny will mark the occasion with a Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday, October 3 at 11:00 am.

        The Respect Life Program was adopted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in 1972. It promotes the Church’s teaching on the value and dignity of human life to the Catholic community and to the wider community. It combines education, prayer, service and advocacy. The topics addressed this year include:

* the death penalty and Divine Mercy
* end of life care
* infertility treatments in line with church teaching
* sexual trafficking
* population control
* depression and suicide among youth
* the promise of pro-life youth

        At the request of Pope Benedict XVI, all bishops around the world will join with their parishioners in the Advent season to pray for respect of human life. Archbishop Vlazny will celebrate Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral on December 5, 2010 at 11:00 am. The Mass will join with others around the globe to witness that we are a “people of life.”

ND RALLY/ROSARY: STAND FOR LIFE AT THE CATHEDRAL IN PORTLAND, OREGON

The Word of God, Jesus The Christ -Matthew 7 

13 Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.
14
How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!
15
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16
By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 E
ven so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.
19
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.
20
Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21
Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
22
Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?
23
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
