Mass Intention in Print: ObL

A Florida parish lists ObL as a Sunday noon Mass intention. Good idea or not?

If your parish is like a lot of mine were, it’s next to impossible to drop a Sunday Mass intention in on a few weeks’ notice. Sometimes, one Sunday Mass was set aside for something general, “the intentions of parishioners” or something like that. I wonder if this is the pastor’s doing.

As you would expect, it’s controversial:

I just don’t think it’s right, I really don’t. I think what’s happened to the American people, what he’s done, what he was planning to do and because we killed him, it doesn’t stop there.

The way he was trying to prove his god to do killing, I can’t approve of that. But I have mercy on his soul and I have to pray for him.

    Nothing wrong with offering the mass for ObL or anyone else for that matter. Perhaps, the intention need not have been made public.
