Sacrilege in Austria: Stop the Western Mass.

On June 26th in Austria there will be another sacrilegious 'Western Mass'. This posting comes from rorate-caeli and Gloria TV. Please DO NOT watch this video if you are of a nervous disposition.

June: time for the "Vienna Western Mass"

This seems like a lost cause - as everything related to the Cardinal of Vienna -, but, since we were sent it, we cannot deny our support:

Please help us to defeat a sacrilegious Western Mass.

This annual event will be celebrated on coming June 26th, by the rector of Vienna cathedral, Fr Anton Faber, for the fourth time.

Most of the participants at this Mass are sitting at beer benches. While Fr Faber offers the sacrifice of Calvary, they are smoking, drinking and eating. From the beer benches they proceed to receive Holy Communion.

This video shows you the Western Mass of last year: http://en.gloria.tv/?media=164417

This year, Gloria.tv Austria has contacted the archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, through both, his spokesman and his secretary. We have urged the Cardinal to stop these liturgical abuses and to replace the Western Mass with a prayer service with no distribution of Holy Communion.

Help us, to make this appeal known. Here the appeal’s website: www.stop-western-mass.com.

Emails can be written directly to cardinal Schönborn: ebs@edw.or.at
