Just over at “Liturgy Reflections“, you know the [place where all good libs go to worship at the altar of a “Father” Jan Larson] I put Father in quotes because as you will see, he does not use the title when describing himself.
In an earlier post we highlighted Father John Zuhlsdorf’s chef skills when he “sliced and diced” Fr.Jan Larson’s commentary on Saturday’s Pontifical High Mass. We weren’t quite sure if FatherZ realized that he might be considered for a spot on “Top Chef”. His dicing & slicing acumen was that good.
Well,FatherZ & manwithblackhat got us so jazzed we thought we should take a run over to “Liturgy Reflections”. Barf bag in hand I sauntered over on my laptop to Jan’s place. (Forgive me, Lord I know I should call him Father BUT…)
This is what yours truly found: the usual barfbagging nonsense except for the Combox. (It’s really good so I’ll leave it until later)
First, let’s meet “Jan”.
Jan Larson, a senior priest of the Archdiocese of Seattle, was ordained in 1968. He received a M.A. in liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame, and a D.Min. in pastoral liturgy from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. He has served as director of the Archbishop’s Office of Worship and as liturgical consultant for the building and renovation of churches in western Washington. For eighteen years he wrote a weekly column on various liturgical issues in The Catholic Northwest Progress, the official newspaper for the Archdiocese of Seattle. He currently assists the liturgical ministry of Our Lady of Sorrows church in Snoqualmie, Washington, and St. Anthony church in Carnation, Washington. He teaches for the Archdiocese’s Liturgical Ministry Institute, and presents various workshops.
Well! That biography reads like, “Intro how to be a liberal priest & disobey the Church 101” Same old, same old, yawn…….barfbag, please!!
We really do not have to rehash his ridiculous, insulting “commentary” on the “old Latin Mass, you can read it at WDTPRS and give Father Z the hits on his blog instead of “Fr.hippie,dippie,doodle,Jan” getting the hits. He probably more hits from us in one day than he normally gets in a year)
final thoughts on “Father” Jan, Check the combox at his page. Full of Traditional Catholics explaing to him why he is offbase. One problem: I wrote a comment & it posted then quickly deleted. So, I had a copy (always prepared) and resubmitted it under my name and website. The first comment I had signed in with Twitter and the name AlwaysCatholic. I am posting the screenshot for all of you to see. Maybe Jan will repost it tomorrow. Ho hum!
Notice I posted it as AlwaysCatholic at 7:19PM and two minutes later at 7:21PM as Sophia Guerra. I immediately took a screenshot and when I went bact to the combox it was gone. Let’s give Jan the benefit of the doubt and perhaps he moderates the comments. I will check back tomorrow to see if yours truly is back up!
