Minnesota’s Catholic Churches Will Resume Public Masses in Defiance of Ongoing Stay-at-Home Order

The bishops are reopening the church.

Minnesota’s Catholic bishops are preparing to reopen their churches to public masses and liturgies, citing the state’s Democratic governor’s refusal to commit to a specific reopening plan as just cause to disobey the state government’s stay-at-home order.

A letter on the resumption of church operation from the statewide conference of Catholic bishops authorizes parishes to resume public gatherings on May 26th. The bishops cited the draconian nature of Governor Tim Walz’s ban on gatherings, pointing to its prohibition on any religious gatherings that have more than ten people present.

An order that sweeps so broadly that it prohibits, for example, a gathering of 11 people in a Cathedral with a seating capacity of several thousand defies reason,stated Minnesota’s six Catholic bishops. “Therefore, we have chosen to move forward in the absence of any specific timeline laid out by Governor Walz and his Administration. We cannot allow an indefinite suspension of the public celebration of the Mass.

The bishops are retaining a broad set of safety-oriented restrictions on church operation, including a limitation of parish capacity at one third of maximum. The faithful are still dispensed from their normal obligation to attend Sunday mass as a result of the health pandemic.

Religious organizations throughout America were generally among the first institutions to suspend their congregations as a result of the epidemic, but religious leaders and pastors are increasingly skeptical of remaining closed indefinitely at the whims of largely progressive governors who are unwilling to stake out an exit strategy.

More than 1,200 Christian pastors in California are vowing to hold in-person religious services in spite of the state’s broad restrictions on gatherings, suggesting that the state’s Christian community has all but had it with Governor Newsom’s hardcore stay-at-home order.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti: It’s Time to Cancel “Everything”

Full lockdown.

Published

on

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sternly instructed residents of his city to cease all outgoing activities of everyday life, citing the county’s dismal coronavirus prospects, which he states are worse than what the nation’s second-largest city faced in March.

It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. If it isn’t essential, don’t do it.

Los Angeles County officials enacted a full coronavirus shutdown for three weeks last week, strictly limiting permissible activities and placing the county in a lockdown similar to those utilized across the country at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking, and county officials are concerned the city’s medical system is unprepared to accommodate a surge in coronavirus cases similar to that seen in New York earlier in the year.

Black Lives Matter protestors have staged nightly protests outside of Garcetti’s house demanding special privileges for individuals charged with felonies. However, the Mayor’s emergency order exempts protest gatherings from restrictions, placing them in the same category as congregating for religious services.

Garcetti was seen congregating in a group of chanting BLM demonstrators earlier in the year. Angelenos can only hope that their neighbors will execute greater discretion in the interest of public health and saving lives than their mayor has.
