Department of Redundancy Department

We bring you this Tweet from Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawanna, New York:

Bishop Richard J. Malone of the Diocese of Buffalo speaks for the Department of Irony . . .

“This beautiful temple, the altar of which we consecrate today, . . .”

We are frankly puzzled by the following observation . . .

Monsignor Paul J. E. Burkard, Pastor of Our Lady of Victory, noted that the church has had a temporary altar for the past 30 years.

. . . as our gaze fixates on that structure at the top of the steps behind His Excellency.
