Father Casey of St. Dominic's -- combines Wings and prayer, from the Detroit Free Press:



Father Pat Casey began seeing signs in the middle of Mass on Saturday. Nobody else saw them. They bore messages he felt a need to share with his parishioners. Urgent messages.



And so, in the middle of Mass, he intoned: "Red Wings 3, Avalanche 2."



And then, "Red Wings 4, Avalanche 2."



And then the Red Wings won Game 1.



And the crowd was pleased.



And Father Casey, wearing a winged wheel on his vestment, was pleased as well.




I'm a big sports fan of a number of teams, but this is inexcusable in my mind. It makes a joke of the liturgy which is for all people, not just fans of the Red Wings.
