Shocker: Pelosi Got The Wrong Saint Day

Pelosi: Today We Pray To St. Joseph The Worker For This "Life-Affirming Legislation"

From Wikipedia:

Saint Joseph’s Day

Saint Joseph’s Day, March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph or Solemnity of Saint Joseph is in Western Christianity the principal feast day of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a Solemnity in the Roman Catholic Church, and also a feast in the provinces of the Anglican Communion, and a feast or festival in the Lutheran Church. Saint Joseph’s Day is the Patronal Feast day for persons named Joseph, Josephine, etc., for religious orders, schools and parishes bearing his name, and for carpenters. It is also Father’s Day in some Catholic countries, mainly Spain, Portugal, and Italy.

The Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Saint Joseph on the Sunday after Christmas. Between 1870 and 1955 the Roman Rite had another feast in honour of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, a title given to him by Blessed Pope Pius IX. This "Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Patron of the Universal Church", referred to also as the "Patronage" feast to distinguish it from that of 19 March, appears in the calendars of those years for celebration on Wednesday of the second week after the Octave of Easter (i.e. the third Wednesday after Easter) and was celebrated with an octave of its own….

Pope Pius XII abolished this feast in 1955, and at the same time established a new feast day, that of Saint Joseph the Worker (a Double of the First Class), for celebration on 1 May, a date chosen to coincide with the celebration in many countries of Labour Day (May Day).

Not to mention Madam Speaker’s outrageous hypocrisy about forcing through a bill that provides federally funded abortion on either holy day.

    Too laugh!!

    But here’s the ‘Good’ part (according to Hairy Read)

    She’ll put the Saint in the “First Time” unemployment figures.
    Just so dingleBarry looks good.

  2. As for the blessed Nuns, misguided as they are; “This statement does not represent 59,000 nuns; it represents the . . . nuns who signed it,” said the Rev. Frank Pavone of the group Priests for Life.

    Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann called those nuns in support of Obamacare “incredibly naïve or disingenuous.”

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the official voice of the church in the U.S., is vociferously opposed to this legislation, but Pelosi neglected to mention those people.

    I think Dante dedicated a chapter of his ‘Divine Comedy’ to Pelosi.

  3. philmarlowe says:

    Ms. Pelosi’s invocation of St. Joseph is a blasphemy.

    • JohnMG says:

      When Pelosi prays to St. Joseph, or anyone else for that matter, she gets a busy signal. Or a “that number has been disconnected” message.

  4. canary says:

    Pelosi allowed religion to guide her?
    Why aren’t the muslims in America protesting their free health care has been tainted & cursed by the Pelosi devil. Muslims need to sue the government over health care bill, just like they do when they get pork drippings in their eggs.

  5. U NO HOO says:

    She is an embarrassment to Catholics and the poster girl of stupid Catholic Democrats and stupid Democratic Catholics. Stupid is redundant.

    She must have dementia. Apologies to those with dementia.

  6. Mithrandir says:

    ADD ANOTHER ONE TO THE LIST:

    1. minority children want this.
    2. doctors in lab coats want this.
    3. 6 week old babies want this.
    4. now, Catholic nuns want this.

    Next, it’s time to whip out the fluffy bunny and kitty sock puppets, “why do Republicans want to kill us baby kitty?”
    “I don’t know baby bunny, but we are going to need health care when we get scorched by global warming….”

    The only saint named Joseph she believes in has the last name of Stalin.

    Jack

  8. Reality Bytes says:

    People like Pelosi give even the damned a bad name.

    Obama & Pelosi would never have ruled the land 2000 plus years ago. They most likely would not have been born in those days.

    Joseph had protect & hide Mary & her unborn child Jesus. Then when all who would have killed them were dead, God told Joseph to take them back to Israel. But, Obama just doesn’t understand that history.

    If pressuring Israel to not protect themselves in the West Bank isn’t enough, land thieving Obama, Hillary, & Biden are now pressuring Israel to give up their capital in Jerusalem. Israel are taking rocket attacks as usual, and this hurts tourism.

    Obama’s sister told him, Obama Sr. was always stealing fruit from their neighbors, and that she was always covering up for him. She also told him
    that his father went away to a school and go expelled for stealing farmers chickens because he didn’t like the dorm food. Obama just didn’t have
    any discipline growing up. According to him, he chose to live with his grandparents because they let him do what he wanted.

  10. canary says:

    Is Notre Dam getting any student loan help in the bill?
    They’ll need it, after Pelosi just plugged them.

  11. swee says:

    What’s ironic is that the feast of St. Joseph has become more popular in recent years because of the economy. Who – even those who aren’t Catholic – can’t resist the siren song of a FREE meal at the local church? Not many can, especially when so many are unemployed. Send Ms. Pelosi to partake in the festivities so she can hear the tales of woe.

  12. Mister C says:

    Pelosi is to Catholicism as Ted Kennedy was to Integrity.
