Protest Blasphemous “Pride” Mass to be held at Catholic Church

St. Joseph Catholic Church in Maplewood, New Jersey, is planning a sacrilegious “Pride Mass” on Sunday, June 23! This is a blasphemy to Saint Joseph, the chaste foster-father of Christ, and a grave offense against the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the month of June. A “Pride Mass” is often held in June, and is designed to normalize homosexuality by incorporating homosexuals in the liturgy of the Mass and celebrating homosexual sin.

St. Joseph’s church has a page dedicated to “LGBT ministry” called Open Arms, which describes itself as “[a group] to welcome LGBTQ Community and those who love them.” The calendar of St. Joseph’s includes a “Rainbow [i.e., homosexual] Rosary” on 9 June, and a “Parish Family Pride Mass” scheduled for 23, June.

This is in direct contradiction of the teaching of the Catholic Church, which state:

“Basing itself on sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.”
(Catechism of the Catholic Church 2357)

Catholic teaching is so clear. The so-called “Pride Mass” at St. Joseph’s church is an outrage against God and a violation against the constant teachings of the Catholic Church. But you can help console the Sacred Heart of Jesus!

We must make reparation for this terrible offense against Our Lord, by prayer and action. Please sign our petition to console Our Lord’s wounded Heart. And be sure to spread the petition to your family and friends.

Please stop the blasphemous and sacrilegious "Pride" Mass at St. Joseph's Catholic parish scheduled on June 23, 2024.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most sublime prayer of the Church, as it offers man grace and redemption from his sins.

The Mass and the celebration of homosexual sin are mutually exclusive. "Pride" Masses are a blatant promotion of a sinful lifestyle that calls out to Heaven for vengeance. There can be no harmony, no coexistence, and no inclusion with such a terrible offense to God.

I urge you to cancel this celebration of sin immediately. June belongs to the Pure and Sacred Heart of Jesus, not sinful "pride."

Sincerely and urgently,
