1600 Hrs In Byzantine Rite

30 Aug

In the Byzantine Rite of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, one is fully in Union with the Holy See & one experiences awe and wonder.
And it is offered in the local language of the people. There are no Organists, no guitar players, no “Muzak” which will cause one to stand in queue in what My Most Dear Friend calls the “Vomitarium” & the Prayers are sung by Priest, Deacon & Congregation.
So, after a Period of Preparation, I will head over to East 7th Street between 2nd & 3rd Avenue for the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Church, Patron Saint of Preachers In One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, Tridentine Latin Mass Calendar On January 27th, & Novus Ordo Calendar on September 13th, except 2015 which is a Sunday in Ordinary Time). And one will NOT be singing “Table Of Plenty”, a Dan Schutte Tune, nor the Ultra Treacly “Gift Of Finest Wheat”, a Hymn which causes My Most Dear Friend to become enraged. The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is Timeless Liturgy.

To those of You who usually assist at the Tridentine Latin Mass, this The Sacred Readings are Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia & Gospel. Don’t Worry, for you will feel at home.

Deo Gratias!

Vimeo is used for mostly artistic exhibition of my videos.

For more Public Exhibition, Dailymotion is my choice.

You Tube in most cases is out of the question.

“The Parade Of The Hands Out”

24 Aug

It was Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 at the 10:30 AM Mass at a Roman Catholic Parish in Queens, in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn. It was time for the Reception of Holy Communion.

When things were Sacred & Proper, AMNO(Ante Missa Novus Ordo), or Before The New Mass, one knelt at a Communion Rail and received Corpus Christi(The Body of Christ) on one’s tongue in the Roman Rite, also called the Latin Rite.

As people lined up to receive Holy Communion, their hands were jutted foreward. There was the Bow before receiving Holy Communion. It was almost as if this was a Snack Line. Ever Since Communion A Mano(In The Hand) was introduced in the United States through the Connivance of Archbishop Joseph Bernadin of Cincinnati, OH, fixing a Ballot of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops as if he was Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago, IL, an Archdiocese which he received the Red Biretta as a Prince of The Catholic Church. Sadly, the Most Blessed Sacrament of The Altar, was being taught to Catholic School and Confraternity Classes as a “Group Meal.”
But, in the effort to make Protestants a group of “Happy Campers”, the Missa Novus Ordo was NOT presented as a Sacrifice, but as an Assembly with Priest as Presider over a Sacred Meeting.

So at yesterday’s Mass, where the Pastor was to head to a new assignment in another state, I viewed perhaps the largest procession of Hands Out ever seen by me. There were people who were in their 80s seen receiving Sancte Communion A Mano. This was TOTALLY Impossible 50 Years ago.

In the Priest’s Homily, he spoke of The “Go With The Flow” Mentality. But there were a few that refused to go with that flow and received Sancte Communion A Lingua(On The Tongue).

For me, IT IS THE ONLY WAY To Do It, along with a few others.

Besides, We Aren’t PRIESTS.

Kyrie Elaison!


In Making A Special Presentation On Vimeo

24 Aug

Number I:
If it is Special, DON’T “Go With The Flow.” Doing WHAT Everyone Else does, such as uploading to You Tube, is merely “Following The Crowd.”
I first discovered this when shooting the rather massive 2011 Historic Coverage of The Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage, which is exclusively on Dailymotion, the World’s Second Largest Video Site. Coverage of The Events were uploaded to You Tube, where it was largely ignored, save for one round which was mostly watched in Canada.

So much for the “Go With Flow” Crowd! The “Flow”, in this case would be the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. People paid little attention to You Tube, much greater attention on Vimeo & a good deal of attention on Dailymotion.

Number II
In order to receive credit for an actual view of a video, a viewer has to watch over 50% of the Actual Video. This is how views are actually recorded on Vimeo. Not only that, but the Video Producer cannot click up his or her own views. One wonders just how many Views on You Tube are of this standard which Vimeo has. Below 50% on Vimeo, a Load is credited.

So, to the ones who appear in their local Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship, being carried on You Tube, one wonders just how many times the winning comtestants are clicking for what amounts to a load on Vimeo?

So on Vimeo, a View is where over 50% of the Video is actually watched. The View Count is REAL.

I can live with that. Someone actually watched the Video.

Deo Gratias!
