Sisters in Arms (Gotta Love These Gals!)

Mary Theresa Streck, the priestess lady in the middle, who we believe should be properly addressed as Father Mary, poses with newly-elected Deaconette Mary Sue Barnett and veteran Deaconess Maureen McGill.

Congratulations, Deaconette Mary Sue!

Father Mary, by the way, is the former Sister Mary—a Sister of St. Joseph who married former priest Jay Murnane in 1984.  So, Jay is the priest who decided to become a layman, while his lovely wife Father Mary is the nun who decided to become a priest. How cool is that!

Anyway, with the help of Call to Action all of these kids hope to transform the Church of Vatican II into a permanent costume party, complete with no valid sacraments, no valid priestly orders and no valid Masses, which, to our way of thinking, will help clarify things quite nicely.

Once they get their way, and you know it’s only a matter of time, then millions of Catholics will become traditionalists overnight.


So carry on, gang. Well played. Keep up the good work!
