Why God Made the Seahawks Lose


A view of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Marysville, WA, on Super Bowl Sunday.

Deacon Greg Kandra comments on video of that mass:

UPDATE: You can watch a video of the Mass here. Skip ahead to the last two minutes or so. It ends with something truly cringe-inducing: the celebrant, after pronouncing the final blessing, dons a Seahawks ski cap and throws a Seahawks blanket over his chasuble before they begin the recessional.

UPDATE II: The parish has now removed the full Mass video from its online Livestream archive.

Man, I would hate to be that pastor having to explain that desecration to his bishop.
