Sorry, but I'm far more sympathetic to the priest here, who cares about sacred things, than to the family, who don't seem to know how to behave in a Catholic church. To be fair, though, most Catholics don't, either. He should have handled it better, especially with a grieving family, but the time for hugging and greeting is at the funeral home, or at a reception afterwards. Not at Mass. The two great commandments are love of God and love of neighbour, but these days, too many ignore the first and focus only on a worldly intepretation of the second. That's how we end up with things like communion for adulterers.

And what's next? Is the Archdiocese of Washington going to suspend Our Lord for what He did to the moneychangers in the Temple? (Hopefully this parish has another priest, so the parishioners can continue to receive the sacraments while Fr Briese is suspended).

Many times it's not just what you say but how you say it.
