My 41 y/o daughter is currently in a nursing home rehabilitating after a serious illness that has left her unable to walk and in great pain.
The priest who visits the nursing home stopped by and it seemed to me a very strange visit. He stated she would have to receive Communion with other residents…even though she is up only periodically, He then proceeded to tell us about the great pain he suffers from and how he has managed to deal with it. IMO…he lacked a certain amount of compassion and then proceeded to start to read the magazines I had brought for my daughter…commenting here and there on what he was reading. He gave us a blessing…tapped the foot of the bed and said “Well, we’ll see ya.”
Never having a priest visit…is this “normal?” Just wondering…:shrug:
