I will head to the Tridentine Latin Mass of 1962 @ Holy Innocents R C Church on W37th Street, for the 6pm Tridentine Mass.
It is a Traditional Low Mass without Music. But, the Silence at Offertory and Consecration will be a Time of Adoration.

Deo Gratias!

If It Is 33° In July and You’re Sweating

1 Sep

33°C is 91°F and yes it can be quite uncomfortable.
I know from listening to CBC Radio One Montreal, 88.5 FM(104.7 FM in the West End), about how Canadians report weather. I know that it doesn’t sound like WCBS 880AM, but Metric is the way of the Rest Of The World, Eh.
Thought I would give your mind a tease, and a laugh which you need.

M, Eh!

“Hello, Worthy” On Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place(E43rd Street)

1 Sep

As I am a Past Grand Knight of Monsignor Sherman Council, Knights of Columbus #5103 in East Glendale, Queens, NY,  I met another Traditional Latin Mass Catholic, who is a Past Grand Knight of a Council in Florida, but is now a member of St Joan of Arc Champlain Council in Jackson Heights.

Good to see a Brother Past Grand Knight who is a Traditional Catholic.

Deo Gratias!

The Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place(E43rd Street)Conversations

1 Sep

I had a conversation with a Young Lady Convert to the Catholic Faith named Ann, originally from Dallas, TX, who started attending the Tridentine Latin Mass at St Agnes on East 43rd Street(Venerable Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place).

St. Agnes has a huge population of The Young at the Tridentine Latin Mass. So does Holy Innocents, for that matter.

The Newer Traditional Catholics don’t just attend the Tridentine Latin Mass, but also the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom at Ukrainian Greek Catholic Churches, such as St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on East 7th Street in the East Village of Manhattan, Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Astoria, Queens and Holy Ghost Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on N 5th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, quite a Tony Area today. These three Parishes have a good number of Holy Innocents Latin Mass Attendees.

So Ann, her friend Josh and I spoke of The Young Traditionalists, who are currently being criticized by His Holiness, Pope Francis I, who doesn’t seem to understand that the Young hate being talked at, as if the Young Traditionalists don’t even exist. But, I did speak about my theory that Pope Francis I was influenced heavily by the Byzantine Rite Ukrainian Catholics, whose stories of Persecution at the hands of Roman Rite Archbishops, may be driving his thoughts currently. The fact that the Novus Ordo Missae is all he celebrated in the Roman Rite and the fact that as a Jesuit Priest, he had Bi ritual Faculties, has also celebrated the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St John Chrysostom and St Basil The Great, means that he has more of a Preference for Eastern Catholic Church Liturgies.

Ann told me that she read about the 1054 Schism as a Tragedy, but I also pointed out that the Eastern Orthodox Christians reject much of Catholic Teachings. She did read about the Latin Rite Archbishops who refused to talk to the Byzantine Rite Catholics and wanted them to assimilate into the Roman Rite.

What Pope Francis I does not understand is that Today’s Young Traditionalists aren’t Yesterday’s Traditionalists. They go not for just the Tridentine Latin Mass, but also for The Great Traditional Catholic Liturgies of The Other Churches of Eastern Catholic Origin. I hope that His Holiness understands this.

Kyrie Elaison!

12th Sunday After Pentecost(Byzantine)

1 Sep

This in the Gospel of St. Matthew, where Jesus spoke of going to Jerusalem, where He would be put to Death and Rise from the Dead.
St. Peter, quick to blurt out things, says “God Forbid that this should happen to You.”
Jesus rebuked Peter, with “Get Behind Me, Satan.” For Peter was thinking about the Worldly instead of The Other Worldly.
Note, that at the 12:30PM Mass of The Ordinary Form, this is the same Gospel as the Byzantine Rite Catholic Churches preached today. Only in the Ordinary Form of Mass, this is called the 22nd Sunday Of Ordinary Time.
I think that next Weekend, it will be 5PM Saturday Vigil Divine Liturgy at Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on 31st Avenue and 30th Street in Astoria, Queens. Sunday will be the Tridentine Latin Mass at St. John’s Cemetery Chapel in Middle Village, Queens.

Deo Gratias!
