Clown At Circus Mass Reprimanded For Honking Sanctus Horn At Wrong Part Of Consecration

Sources say that just minutes after a Circus Mass at St. Pius X Catholic Church concluded earlier this morning, Church Pastor and Ring Master Fr. Reggie Smith reprimanded a clown deacon for having honked the Sanctus Horn several seconds after the consecration.

“The GIRM clearly states that a little before the Consecration, when appropriate, a server honks a horn as a signal to the audience,” an infuriated Smith told EOTT as he kissed and hung up his ringmaster whip. “It then goes on to say that according to local custom, the server also honks the horn as the priest and ringmaster shows the host and then the chalice…and our local custom is to honk the horn at this point. After all, what’s the point in using the Sanctus Horn if it’s not used to alert the faithful of the consecration?”

Smith added that not even the Pope himself had the right to change the rubrics of the Mass, and that doing so was in complete contradiction to the spirit of obedience.

At press time, Smith says that he will consider administering disciplinary action should this type of negligence happen again in the future.

    Is this a “Catholic” version of the onion? The worship of man is complete, God has been mocked anew in a Catholic parish during the holy sacrifice of the mass. Bad form!

    • Yes, this is a Catholic version of The Onion.

Does any complain about a mariachi mass or service or a polka service NO!!! What about Christian Bikers they might look different the ones I have meet have a heart of gold and caring people and very Christian. You cant be closed minded We all should be happy and share the Joy of Christ

    If you don’t give the sign of peace wearing a hand buzzer, you’re doing it wrong.

  • Michael Leggett

    I love the irony of the fact that the Parish is named St. Pius X.

  • Michael Leggett

    This is what happens when you excommunicate the SSPX

    Their idea of music is Gagorian Chant.

  • Mr. WAC

    At major papal masses at the Vatican, the consecration bell is (or was) replaced with a trumpet fanfare. So there is precedent.

    Add a second horn and you got two solus altisimus

    Once went to a mass at Our Lady of the Three Rings……..actually counted 37 clowns coming out of the same confessional booth.

      Mwwwwwwaahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Good One!!!!

  • ssoldie

    I am and support the F.S.S.P.X.

  • ssoldie

    this is a hoot,eott has outdone itself.

  • BernardBrandt

    I became Eastern Catholic thirty years ago, precisely because of nonsense like this, and I do not regret a single minute of that time.

    • IrishEddieOHara

      And I am about to leave the Eastern Catholic Church for the Orthodox for the same reason. If you don’t understand…..look up things like “The Teal Terror” and “Byzantines and Lutherans Pray Together” on Google. I’ve about had all I can take of Catholicism in general.

    Sorry Eye of the Tiber……you can’t make satire out of something that is already satirical.
