Priest Celebrates ‘Star Wars’ Communion

Meanwhile

in Germany.

Details: 

It wasn’t Darth Vader who gave the blessing to the first communion children. This was personally undertaken by Pastor Christoph Nobs with a bright green laser sword at the celebration of a Star Wars First Communion Mass. The idea for the stars-War Communion came from Nicolas Gkotses community director. Star Wars had been a theme for the children in their religious instruction and so he tried to communicate the gospel in this way in a timely manner. – “May the force be with you!”

  1. The Church in the German lands has a been a mess of weirdness for a long time (the fallout of Vatican II hasn’t been referred to as “the Rhine polluting the Tiber” for nothing). Now that the US has be cleaned up to a good degree (bar one or two noticeable exceptions) and set on the right track, more or less, attention should switch to German-speaking Europe.

  2. I wanted to stop reading at the word “Germany”. Except His Holiness Benedict XVI, Mgr. Gänswein and a few other people, nothing good comes from this heathen land (not that much good things comes either from my country but at last we don’t have “star wars blessings”). The Catholic Church there has been very permeable to ideas coming from the EKD (Lutheran-Reformed United Church of Germany), and a literal mess has been imposed on the faithfuls, who surprisingly continue to practice the faith at a rather high rate, at least in the countryside.
    It is sad that a cabal was mounted against the best Bishop in the country, Mgr. Mixa of Augsburg, by the president of the episcopal conference to have him dismissed. It was alleged that he slapped a child decades ago, and he had to resign under his peer’s pressure. Bishop Voderholzer of Regensburg, Benedict’s choice for that see, is bearable, as is Cardinal Wölki in Berlin, but in a general atmosphere of discouragement and openness to the zeitgeist, they can do nothing besides keeping their mouths shuts to avoid irating the modernists in power, and starting yet another round of parochial consolidations…

    + pax et bonum

  3. This is an example for fantasy going wild. People mistake it for the real thing, and begin worshiping it, just as the Hebrews worshiped the golden calf in the time of Moses.
