    Fr. Joseph Jenkins

  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Three Random Questions

WAYNE

Three questions please:

1) May a Priest attend services at, say, a Baptist Church?

FATHER JOE

Yes, but he cannot take an active part in the order of service.  With permission of the bishop, he might be permitted to preach at a special service.  However, such invitations are highly unlikely.

WAYNE

2) If so, would it be acceptable for him to do so wearing his cassock?

FATHER JOE

Yes, he would be expected to identify himself by his clerical garb.

WAYNE

3) I know a priest who rarely wears that “beanie” cap as it frequently falls off, is this acceptable? If not, how do you keep it on?

FATHER JOE

Most priests these days do not wear the black zucchetto and it is not worn with a suit.  Worn with the cassock or other vestments, it sits under the biretta.
