The New Prefect of the Congregation for Doctrine and the Faith Gerhard Ludwig [Müller] is determined to end the problem of Mass for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transexuals. The offensive event is offered two times every month in a Novus Ordo Eucharist in Warwick Street in the London district of Soho. The homosexual celebration takes place with the approval of the current Archbishop of Westminster, Msgr Vincent Nichols.
London Catholics have turned after futile attempts to address the Ordinary, to Rome. Several contacts in the Roman Curia have shown themselves concerned by the action and have looked for an explanation of the London Andersrum-Service. Thereupon, the principle aspects were discussed principally in terms concerning pastoral validity and a ghettoization within the Church, if such specifically prescribed group-services are celebrated.
London Catholics were especially offended by the form in which the Mass was celebrated. In a petition already sent a long time previously to Archbishop Nichols, several Roman Congregations were made aware, that they complained that in the preaching, the condition of homosexuality was justified and with that there was a position taken which contradicts the teaching of the Church. The Catholics then complained that with every positive approach toward pastoral support of people with homosexual inclinations it will then be nullified. The Catholic teaching of penance, contrition and forgiveness is not taught, but the “otherness” is celebrated as being-as-it-is.
In the Catholic Church in Warwick Street there are significant portrayals of the rainbow flag of the homosexuals. The rainbow flag, originally portrayed representing God’s manifestation in the rainbow as a symbol of peace, has been usurped by homosexual groups in recent years to be perceived as a militant symbol of an offensive homosexual movement.
The Catholics of the English capital complained in their petition that numerous flags and banners of dubious content were draped over crosses, altars, Mary and Saints statues and other religious symbols in the Church. Most were encouraging transvestites and transexuals to declare themselves.
The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St. Gregory is covered in a dazzling twice a month, so that it veils from the faithful, not only the Catholic Faith, but also a holy place. As there is no one among the authorities, neither pastor, nor Archbishop to whom the faithful can give an ear but to “hustle and bustle”, the faithful have resorted to self-help. They gather during the homo-Masses in front of the church and on the street and pray the rosary as a sign of disapproval, above all in any case as a gesture of reparation.
