"Hello, Reverend Moon?": Bozek Laicized
Initial video from Fox 2. Of course, the Bozek, with his usual qualities of humility and honesty, defies the ruling, invites everyone to Mass with him, and incorrectly states he will "continue" to offer "valid" Catholic Sacraments. Which is correct only if you happen to suffer a massive coronary immediately outside his bachelor pad.
The Archdiocese has more detailed information here, with a wonderfully captioned picture of "Mr." Marek Bozek. Even that title doesn't quite describe the wonders of the Bozek, though. It would have been nice if the Archdiocesan information made it clearer that Bozek is misleading people on the valid sacrament claim. In my opinion, the press release is a little too oblique on this issue. Those attempts at confession/absolution, marriage, and confirmations would be absolutely invalid. His consecration of the Eucharist and administration of Baptism are illicit and necessarily involve anyone cooperating with him who knows of his status in mortal sin.
I'll have commentary later today as events warrant. There is a downside to giving up TV for Lent after all.
