St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City held a rare Mass of Reparation on Saturday after the N.Y. Archdiocese said mourners at a funeral service last week for transgender icon Cecilia Gentili engaged in “scandalous behavior.”
The Very Rev. Enrique Salvo, St. Patrick’s pastor, said Cardinal Dolan’s request the Mass, which was to pray for forgiveness for what some Catholics considered a desecration of the historic Midtown Manhattan church.
The archdiocese said the church took issue with the actions of the mourners, not Gentili’s sexual identity.
They also reportedly jokingly identified Gentili as a “saint” and changed the lyrics to some Catholic songs to honor the LGBTQ advocate.
