From CNA: Homosexual Activists Design 'Relational Mysteries' for Rosary
Scrutiny of a group of protesters at Bishop Salvatore Cordileone’s visit to the Jesuit School of Theology at the Graduate Theological Union last week has put the spotlight on a variant of the Rosary designed by homosexual activists to contemplate what they call the “Relational Mysteries.”
The Bishop of Oakland's visit was intended to commemorate the merging of the Jesuit school with Santa Clara University.
The California Catholic Daily reports that the visit’s protesters, about twenty in number, included Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, president of the Starr King (Unitarian Universalist) School of Ministry; Rev. Roland Stringfellow, the organizer of the GTU’s Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies; Rev. Sanna Reinholtzen, a Lutheran minister; and doctoral student Eugene McMullan, apparently a Catholic.[...]
The “Relational Mysteries” are listed as Fidelity - Ruth’s pledge to Naomi; Grief – The Parting of David and Jonathan; Intercession – Esther intercedes for her people; Restoration – the raising of Lazarus; and Discipleship – the two encounter Christ on the road to Emmaus.
The California Catholic Daily also reports a habit among religious homosexual activists of interpreting the relationship between Ruth and Naomi as a homosexual one.
Episcopal priest John Kirkeley, a nominee for Bishop of Los Angeles, has characterized the relationship between Saul, David and Jonathon as a “Biblical Love Triangle,” while Fr. Donal Godfrey, executive director of University Ministry at the University of San Francisco, in a homily likened the story of Lazarus to “the call to come out.”
These aren't the "Relational Mysteries" - they are the "Deviant Mysteries". It's a sham, a total hijacking of a beloved devotion that is meant to deepen one's faith. These 'mysteries' only serve to deepen the pit these misguided souls are sinking in. Another reason to pray for the intercession of Our Mother of Sorrows.
It seems as if my own rosary has become defiled as a result of these people's actions.
Well, guess what. I can make up "mysteries" too. I'm gonna call them the "Fire and Brimstone Mysteries".
