Pigeon Forge, Tennessee––Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion Ernest Robbins is reporting to friends and family that the Extraordinary Form of the Liturgy “should never become the norm,” but that it should “remain true to its name…extraordinary.”  “I don’t know…I just feel that Vatican II helped us move into a new era in the Church, and I guess I just don’t wanna see us move backwards,” Robbins declared to anyone and everyone listening, going on to explain how the Spirit of Vatican II has helped to reshape the proper form of the Mass. “Where just a few decades ago, I had to passively receive Jesus, I can now boldly give Jesus, just as He so boldly gave himself to us. The Extraordinary Mass is a roadblock to my participation in the giving action of the Lord. And I mean, isn’t it just common sense that the Extraordinary form should remain extraordinary?” Robbins laughed. “Say it with me…’extra…ordinary.'” At press time, Robbins was drafting an email to Steve Greydanus of Decent Films asking him to begin a petition to HBO to have them stop airing The League of Extraordinary Gentleman.

    The ‘New Mass’ is obviously ‘all about us’ and NOT ‘all about Jesus’. Ernest Robbins is presumably young enough to have internalized the ‘all about me’ falsehood that so many of our young people have going on today. Very sad.

      This is satire and is not real, Eye of the Tiber is a satirical Catholic news site.

    The only thing funnier than EOTT articles is comments earnestly outraged about them. A word to whomever conceived of and runs this site: way to go, man. Genius. Keep up the great work. The one about the lady who thinks the Church demeans women but is really excited for 50 shades of grey absolutely killed me. Peace.

    Bishops should change the meaning of EMHCs to: Emergency Ministers of Holy Communion. They aren’t extraordinary anymore – they’re so common. Would that they only “perform” during emergencies.
