Thanks for the info, Bernard.
In my sheltered world, I would have never imagined these things would happen!!!
What strange times we live in... It seems that there's always a good excuse for whatever people want to do. I do believe in Ecumenism, but this was stretching it a bit too much for comfort.
I will pray and think about these types of situations.

As the article says,it is up to the local Bishop.

When something like this is allowed, the blessed Sacrament must be removed from the tabernacle, assuming the tabernacle is in the main body of the Church. If it is hidden away, as it unfortunately is in too many church's today, it doesn't matter.

Assuming all requirements have been met, what's the beef?

There are many instances that for some reason or another, where a Catholic Church is not available for Mass, non-catholic churches often extend a helping hand and allow a Catholic mass to be celebrated in their church.

It makes total sense and is an act of Christian Charity for Catholic Churches to return the favor when necessary.

Well put, Paul. And many of these protestant churches are facing the same struggles and contraversies as the Mother Church. We are not the only ones being attacked.

Nor are we the only religion suffering from the lack of vocations, nor the closure of Churches because there are no ministers for them or because so many have stopped attending services that there are not enough members in the Congregation to support them.

Pretty bad...

And especially bad as it was an ordination in the UMC. What does the RCC stand for anyway?

I know there are Lutheran synods that refuse to participate in ecumenical worship. Can you imagine the Wisconsin Synod allowing a UMC ordination of a woman minister in a WELS church? In many cases the RCC has become a liberal Protestant denomination.

You are quite correct.

Do the Methodists have no churches to allow them to hold their ordinations? This is clearly a case of "ecumania," which is to say ecumenism divorced from its Christic intent of bringing about Christ's prayer, "Ut unum sint" (that all may be one, John 17:21), and simply promotes indifferentism.

Michael Voris speaking against the indifferentism that is shrinking the Church because they will not seek the lost sheep.

Did the tax collectors have no places to have their meals that that Jesus nut had to go eat with them? What is wrong with those Catholics, don't they understand that Christ always preached that you shouldn't ever talk to people who disagreed with you. That's why he wouldn't accept the drink of water at the well- He was too good to even speak to a Samaritan woman right?

Obviously the way to bring those stinking Protestants back in communion with Rome is to make sure we always treat them like dirt and refuse to ever lend a helping hand.

They're allowing a false, blasphemous ritual of a false religion to be celebrated within a Catholic church. Basically, they've desecrated it. Just because they take out the Blessed Sacrament doesn't mean it's suddenly right. It's like hiding a cross when you're trying to rob a guy's house. 'Helping' Protestants doesn't mean supporting them in their false (and completely invalid) rites. Their 'ordinations' are nothing but words, and thus a mockery of God and the true priesthood. That isn't treating them like dirt, it's being truthful.
