Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh. ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Gay Masses



Don't worry...I didn't go dressed like this to the Mass of Ages interview!

Gay Masses


Well it was quite a while ago
When I first heard in Soho
There is such a thing as Gay Masses

I thought “You must be kiddin’ me?
Our Lady and St Gregory?”
Do you think they approve of these Masses?

Oh it’s sacrilege! It’s sacrilege!
What on God’s green earth are Gay Masses?
This is a rather queer affair
But let’s call it 'pastoral care'
This is Soho
So we have Gay Masses
Gay Masses

I was rather quite aghast
Oh that Martin Prendergast
Was organising Gay Masses

How long's this been going on?
It really sounds a little wrong
Has the Diocese embraced his madness?

Oh it's scandalous! It's scandalous!
Ae they celebrating Gay Masses?
Is the Archbishop in despair or does he really just not care?
This is Soho
So we have Gay Masses
Gay Masses

Well I’ll tell you now straight out
I have sympathy no doubt
But the Lord doesn’t care for our preferences

The orientation that He deems
Fit for worship is the East
We’re all human
Despite our differences

But His sadness! His sadness!
Has the Lord been reduced to this crassness?
Try the Brompton Oratory
St Patrick’s you will see
Catholics worshipping Him in gladness
Gay Masses

I understand in this country
LGBT community
Is something that’s very much in fashion
But it really doesn’t mean
Our Lord or Lady do agree
With the rise of LGBT Masses

Let’s face facts here!
Let’s face facts here!
This is just a pick up joint for some fags, dear!
It's a subversion of the Mass
A perversion of the Mass
This is not what the Apostles imagined
Gay Masses

Come on, lads and lasses!
Lads and lasses!
We don’t need these awful Gay Masses!
The Lord wants you in His Church
You're not the last you're not the first
But come on let’s think of saving our asses
Our asses

Oh it’s sacrilege! It’s sacrilege!
What on God’s green earth are Gay Masses?
It's a rather queer affair
But let’s call it 'pastoral care'
This is Soho
And they have Gay Masses

Catchy!

"Let’s face facts here!

Bwahahaha!

Cheeky, but inspired, and "asses" DOES rhyme with "masses" after all.
ROFL

I think you should sing it outside the Gay Masses!

I liked that lone, too: "This is just a pick up joint..."

Funny, sad and true!

I would have thought that there was a greater need for a mass that appealed to the huge diversity of people that frequent the Soho area, a huge proportion of whom do not have English as their mother tongue.

Mass in the Extraordinary form. And no-one will be excluded because of their sexual orientation.
