BREAKING: New England Priest May Have Deflated Parishioner Enthusiasm During Homily

Things are beginning to get interesting in New England after Archbishop Sean Patrick O’Malley met with the media yesterday and said he knew nothing about whether or not a diocesan priest purposely deflated parishioner enthusiasm for the Church during last Sunday’s homily.

The homily, which many are now calling  “fluffgate” because of its absence of any substance, has brought nationwide attention to the small Catholic parish. O’Malley said he was shocked by the allegations and seemingly placed the parish priest Fr. Thomas Brady under the bus, indicating that [Brady] would know more since pastors are more sensitive to the weight of their homilies.

Brady was originally scheduled to talk to the press tomorrow, but that was moved up in light of the news and circumstances surrounding the gravity of how lackluster and mind-mindbogglingly dull the homily was.

Catholic blogger Jon Sorensen told EOTT that the bland homily the parishioners received was not the first time, nor would it be the last time a priest completely and utterly sucked the Christian energy from a congregation.

“I think Catholics would be shocked to know that these types of unimaginative homilies happen more often than they think,”  Sorensen said. “What am I talking about…no Catholic would be shocked to know this.”
