As the Boston Globe first ..., 14 June 2011 [cached]
As the Boston Globe first reported, Saturday, June 11, Church officials have ordered Rev. John J. Unni, pastor of St. Cecilia's Parish, located in the city's Back Bay neighborhood, to cancel a Mass scheduled for 6:00 pm, Sunday, June 19.
On Tuesday, June 14, the Boston Globe featured a front-page interview with Father Unni and editorialized in support of the "All are Welcome" Mass.
"Father Unni has the full confidence and support of the cardinal and the archdiocese,'' spokesman Donilon wrote in an e-mail, according to the Boston Globe, adding, "He is a great pastor.''
During the 11:00 am Sunday Mass, which also celebrated Pentecost, Father Unni spoke to parishioners about the controversy.
"We here at St. Cecilia's have an agenda," he said, walking up and down the main aisle of the church. "I have an agenda. Our agenda is the Jesus agenda."
As Unni went onto explain it, "Jesus loved people. He accepted people. He ate with people, those who were the marginalized and ostracized sinners of his day. And by that compassion and interacting as Jesus did at this [communion] table by loving in a good way, people are strengthened, people are healed, people are reminded of their dignity, their beauty, goodness and worth - ready, ready - as they are!"
The last part of "Jesus agenda," Unni said, "and I dare say the cardinal's agenda" is to be "supportive of all."
And Unni left no doubt about what that meant. "You are welcome here, gay or straight, rich or poor, young or old, black or white," he said. "Here, you all can say, 'I can worship the God who made me as I am.'"
Father Unni clarified that the "All Are Welcome" Mass has been postponed, not canceled as previously reported in local media.
Councilor Charles Cipollini also raised ..., 9 Nov 2011 [cached]
Councilor Charles Cipollini also raised questions about Roper's decision to ask Father John Unni, the pastor of St. Cecilia Parish in Boston, to speak as a character witness.
Cipollini, however, suggested that Roper invited Unni to appease Gov.
Gov. Timothy Murray, calling Unni a "controversial" figure in the Catholic Church who had angered conservative Catholics with his outspoken support for gays and lesbians.
Two funerals in two consecutive days ..., 21 Sept 2014 [cached]
Two funerals in two consecutive days have left the Boston firefighters, family members, and first responders in attendance emotionally "exhausted," said Rev. John Unni, the pastor who delivered the homily at both funerals. But he urged the community to take care of themselves and each other and not to keep their emotions inside.
"Don't be afraid to talk to each other, don't be afraid to lean on each other," he said. "Tap into that relationship with the Lord."
