Bah Humbug In Edenderry Parish!!!

It has been brought to our attention that on Christmas Day in the parish of St. Mary's, Edenderry, County Offaly (under the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin) the clergy therein, namely Fr.'s McEvoy and Walsh (pic'd here) failed to distribute or ensure distribution of the Holy Communion to those who needed it.

Seemingly, a residential home for the elderly and infirm located almost beside the Church itself was not in receipt of their presence nor that of the Holy Presence itself.

These elderly are probably not going to see next Christmas and the importance of them receiving the Blessed Sacrament cannot be underestimated...but it has been...

So maybe they would like to offer some explanation as to why the elderly were visibly disappointed and broken hearted to not receive Holy Communion...

The question has been asked Fathers so perhaps you would prefer yourselves to explain why these most vulnerable in society were denied the Blessed Sacrament...

Or perhaps their Ordinary, Jim Moriarty, would care to ask the same question of them as this is a serious issue...

No-one is to be denied the Blessed Sacrament except in particular circumstances so one wonders what rule applied in this particular situation...

Oh no: the old people are going to die because they did'nt get their ration of two thousand year old apprentice carpenter! Cannibalism is the life blood of our elderly!

What a sick and disrespectful comment regarding the Blessed Sacrament.

It is sad to see that the local Ministers of the Eucharist could not visit the Nursing Homes in the area on Christmas Day as a matter as priority as most Parishes now take Communion to the sick and housebound in both private homes and Nursing Homes in most areas each Sunday but Christmas Day is a special day and I totally agree there should be answers as to why these elderly people who were unable to attend Mass should have been denied the Blessed Sacrament.

Finn get a grip. I am sure most of these old ladies and gentlemen would have preferred someone to lift their spirits by way of Communion than be truly a cannibal and eat a poor turkey!!
