FATHER KELLY DANCING WITH RYAN TUBRIDY ON THE LATE LATE 😥

DOES ANYONE ELSE FIND THE SINGING PRIEST RAY KELLY EMBARRASSING?

There is absolutely no doubt that he has a very good voice.

In fact I wrote to him when his singing first hit the news and congratulated him on his voice.

But has the attention gone to his head and is making him behave embarrassingly?

Those of us of a certain age, and not endowed with external beauty, need to conduct ourselves in a manner that suits our age, our appearance and our state in life.

And we all have to resist that narcissistic part that is in all of us that suggests to us that we are something that we are not.

So many priests nowadays present themselves as PERFORMERS when that is not what we are.

We priests, when it comes to Mass and the Sacraments are “celebrants” and “presiders”.

In the rest of our lives we are “pastors”.

Of course the Mass or Sacraments become more meaningful when the celebrant is warm and has the gifts of good preaching or even a good voice to lead the singing.

But our basic calling is to put Jesus Christ at the centre – and not ourselves.

Maybe priests, who are neither fathers or husbands are pushed towards narcissism because they live alone or do not have to negotiate their personal spaces to include a partner and children.

And on top of that goes the adulation priests gave traditionally received.

Pedestals are alright – but you run the risk of thinking you are better or different.

Father Kelly was apparently angry that he was not asked to sing for Pope Francis in Ireland?

I think he has lost his contract with his recording company too?

But he still has the best contract any priest could have – to be a parish priest.

    Celebrity has gone to Ray Kelly’s head, not to mention, perhaps, his conscience.
    Kelly says he’s very easily sucked into these things (celebrity stuff) as if he’s being impelled against his will. Well, he is…if you take personal ego-tripping as an external and irresistible force.
    But here’s the puzzle for me: why do Irish Catholics continue to adulate men who represent one of the most morally corrupt and criminal institutions in human history? The mind boggles, and baffles itself, in equal degree.
    Personally, I’d be embarrassed to appear on television with such a man, and not just for his juvenile behaviour with Tubridy.
    Do the Irish really have such short memories?

  4. Pat, your assessment of Fr. Kelly is embarrassing. Your notion of what a priest should/shouldn’t be is suspect and very questionable. Who are all the “priest performers” you speak of? The majority of us get on with our work and lives quietly, without any nonsense and do our best. Why do you feel the need to constantly condemn priests like Fr. Darcy, Fr. Kelly, the 3 Singing Padres etc…? Why? I am not a fan of any of them but it intrigues me as to your motivation to criticise, name call and denigrate these men. I know from a family relative who lives near Fr. Kelly’s parish that he is loved by his parishoners, is well supported and does a huge amount for worthy charitable causes. He has brought many people back to the Church. Do you feel threatened by other priest’s popularity? Seems you do. I think it is important to share your gifts, even singing, for the purpose of sharing good news, and, it is important that a certain clientele can call on priests like Fr. Darcy to officiate at family funerals and other occasions. He has a gift for particular moments, something you and I don’t possess. Let’s encourage and affirm these priests who put themselves out there in the public domain knowing that they may be ridiculed – by people like you, stuffy face. Do you seriously want us to believe that you and you alone present the ideal of priesthood? Take look at some of the horrible things you have written and allowed to be printed on your blog. Pat, like many priest’s, you struggle with living the gospel. I do and thus I would never compare anyone against my fragmented, imperfect priesthood. As to being a narcissist – you are right: priests, including your good self, fall prey to it and so you know how unattractive a virtue it is. But Please Pat: spare me the repeat mantra that all priests are an embarrassment. Let Ray be Ray and Brian be Brian. No one is stopping you from being Pat even when you’re an embarrassment. Do angels visit you at night to give you messages to give to all others than yourself.

  13. 9:01. Would you listen to yourself. Yeh singing on BGT is reaching out to people ! It is self serving, self seeking adulation. Nothing more, nothing less . I’m sorry you find the true way of living the gospel such a bore. Tell me, why should a priest seek the limelight for their own vanity. It seems that no matter what this crowd do, there will always be apologists, enablers and facilitators. Get a grip and wise up. Ray Kelly had his moment of fame when the YouTube video of him singing at a wedding went viral. Now we have a priest riding out of a church on an electric scooter. Where was Christ in all of this? Why dont these clerics leave entertainment to those who choose that profession and concentrate on preaching and living the gospel. Is it any wonder the RCC church is in a mess ? Are these all distraction tactics to take away from the horror show that is being exposed in the RCC. They already have bananarama in the guise of the three warbling priests. Is Kelly hoping to jump on the bandwagon, join up and rename themselves the fun boy four and the priest on the scooter could be the warm up act. I’m not against a bit of fun but given the enormity of the problems facing the RCC it would be wiser if these “performers” got on with what the believe they have been “called” to do. I said it before that the RCC is a circus. There seems to be a queue of willing clerics wanting to get in on the act. Go and put your defenses to the thousands of men, women and children who have been abused by the RCC. I’m sure it sickens them to the core when they see these muppets on stage, smiling, laughing and dancing. But no matter what the truth is there are those who either choose to ignore or conveniently forget about the abuses.

Quite a fe of you including the mysoginist Lollipop Josie have been quick to denounce anyone criticising “fame hungry” priests. I don’t know Rat Kelly but I cringe when I see him. If he or the performing crooners believe that they are good enough why don’t they appear as themselves rather than using their Roman collars to open doors. They are using and being used by a fickle entertainment Industry and they are more concerned about their own dame. Let them sing. Let them dance and let them write as long as their actions glorify God, not for profit, not for self seeking adulation or backslapping, not for political Disney awards like MBE’s. If they truly believe that they have been called to be shepherds of Christ, then get on with the job and in everything they do bring glory to God. Now sadly we have seen that the church they belong to doesn’t follow this theory. It is a self seeking, back slapping cabal of chancers who take money off the poor, cover up their abuses, hide money in illegal schemes. If that’s the leadership that these priests are given then who can blame them for wanting in on the act? But please please do not dress it up in any other way just because these men wear Roman collars. None of us are perfect but I for one can say that I’m not a hypocrite. And lollipop Josie please do not tell any woman to wash her dishes. That comment from you speaks volumes about your mind you foolish foolish little man.

    One day I’ll be rich
    Of that you can be sure
    I don’t give a damn
    About the hungry or the poor
    I’ll sit amongst the gentry
    And enjoy their lavish feast
    Nothing more than I deserve
    For I’m a Roman Catholic priest
    Who’s this guy called Jesus
    Who called children to his knee
    I’m much too busy singing
    That crap is not for me
    Repent and be saved he says
    As I ski here on the piste
    That must be for someone else
    For I’m a Roman Catholic priest
    I think I’ll sip some Chardonnay
    Or maybe some Sauvignon blanc
    As I sit here and count my money
    And hide it in Vatican bank
    Alas I must retire
    And sleep in my comfy bed
    Watch beauty and the beast
    Oh what a life this is
    I’m a Roman Catholic priest
    And as I drift to slumber
    And dream of what I’ve been paid
    Perhaps one day I’ll get to Rome
    And someday I’ll wear red
    I know the chances are minimal
    But I can dream and hope
    If I get a record deal
    They might even make me Pope
    So goodnight to you one and all
    You begrudgers, filthy beasts
    Leave us all alone
    We’re holy catholic priests

      Like

      1. He’s not.
        The reason these ontologically changed idiots think that that is serving the gospel is the mindset that once you have been changed everything you do is the service of the gospel.
        This is the exact argument used by many a clerical abuser – because they are Jesus they can do no wrong. This is the most bizarre and frightening of RC clerical aberrations and frankly I think provides reason on its own that all clergy should be tagged. At least then we’d know where they were.

  28. Latest from National Catholic Reporter: Pope Emeritus Benedict and Cardinal Robert Sarah have publicly fallen out over the stated co-authorship of a book calling into question the consideration being given to ordaining married men in the Amazon region where there is a shortage of priests.
    Sarah claimed that he and Benedict co-authored the book, soon to be released and already the subject of heated controversy and accusations of betrayal of Pope Francis. Benedict did contribute at least one essay to the book (Et tu, Brutus), but the spineless ex-Nazi is now trying to distance himself from both the book and from Sarah.
    Question to Sarah: how does it feel being thrown under a bus?

    If we can’t exchange our rings

    And nod at the appropriate time
    When they bring up the subject of abuse

I’ve met many many priests and I could count on one hand how many came across as genuine. The whole outfit is a sham and more and more they’ve been found out. Most people aren’t afraid of them anymore. They ruled by instilling fear in us from the cradle to the grave. What have they left in their armour now that the fear is gone! Certainly not the gospel of Jesus Christ. They ALL, every last one of them, should hang their heads in shame for being part of a terrorist cabal.

  36. To the tune of mickey marleys roundabout:
    Pope Frankie has a wee church
    That leaves the faithful in the lurch
    His priests perved and shagged all about
    Until someone, they found out
    CHORUS
    Round and round and up and down
    Through the streets of Belfast town
    All the children come and shout
    Watch, the priest has his Micky out
    As children we had to go to Catholic school
    They’d save our souls
    That was the rule
    The brothers were strict
    They’d batter you
    With their fists and with their shoe
    Chorus
    Round and round and up and down
    The brothers shagged the children in Belfast town
    All the children come and shout
    Watch, the brothers got his Micky out
    We used to dread each PE day
    Stripped in the showers
    In case he would say
    Come with me little boy
    And have a feel of my wee toy
    CHORUS
    And then we left
    And went to big school where
    Instead of the brothers, the priests they ruled
    They’d smile to your parents
    Before banging your head
    Kick you in the ground
    Till you played dead
    CHORUS
    They’d talk of Christ as if He was their mate
    And then ask if you did masturbate
    They’d take you for a ride in their wee car
    Give you sweets from a great big jar
    And tell you it was for your own good
    Take it out and play with your wood
    CHORUS
    Sung slowly
    But pervy brothers and priests grow old
    Their secrets safe and never told
    But we’ve grown up
    Our stories to tell
    And those bastards they can rot in hell
    Round and round and up and down
    They shagged their way through Belfast town
    All the children come and shout
    The priest he has his Micky out
