12 Hours Alpha & Omega 2015 Into 2016

31 Dec

I am planning to end 2015 & begin 2016, with a contingent of Holy Innocents Partisans, with the Byzantine Rite of The Catholic Church. It should prove to be Prayerful & Mystical.
At 6:00PM on Thursday, December 31st, 2015, a Divine Liturgy will be offered at St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on E7th Street. This will be followed by an All Night Vigil, followed by Coffee Hour at Midnight at St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, continuing with the All Night Vigil & Divine Liturgy at 6:00AM.
It should be a Peaceful Sleep at Home after this is done.
Happy Octave Of Christmas and Happy 2016.

“Are You ‘Wanderering’, Gary?”

30 Dec

After reading the Online Edition of “The Wanderer Newspaper”, and viewing Church Militant.com, both look like Two Peas in a Pod.
The Canon Lawyer from Minneapolis, the Appearance of Wanderer Writers on “Mic’d Up”, neither operation ever dares to criticize The Current Occupant of The Petrine Throne, leads me to believe that there is a Business Relationship between The Wanderer and ChurchMilitant.com. While you do business with a member of The Matt Family, it isn’t Michael Matt, but Joseph Matt.
While “The Remnant Newspaper” has their own Video Operation, ChurchMilitant.com is allied with The Wanderer.
Like I said, “Two Peas In A Pod”, and both of you are Neo Catholics.
Very Funny! I like “The Remnant Newspaper” Way Better.

Wonder & Awe, Byzantine Russian Catholic Style

30 Dec


My Normal Sunday Mass is the Tridentine Latin Mass. But, I was in a Byzantine Mood. After all, Catholic is Catholic and I sought The Byzantine Rite on The Gregorian Calendar & Not the Julian Calendar. Put in Byzantine Rite Catholic Terms, my Primary Sunday Mass is The Tridentine Divine Liturgy Of St Pius V.
It was November of 2013, when, after listening to my Nuns in Catholic Elementary School, waiting over 40 Years to do it, when I began to attend the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom, at St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the East Village on E7th Street.
I listened to a Tridentine Latin Mass Attendee at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan, in fact, two of them, who told me about St. Michael’s Russian Catholic Chapel, on the Property of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral Parish in Little Italy, only a block away from East Houston Street.
As it is one of only 4 such Churches left in the United States, three of them are affiliated under the Melkite Greek Catholic Eparchy of Newton, MA. This one Russian Catholic Chapel, while of Byzantine Rite, is under the Auspices of The Latin Rite Archbishop, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
And as Sunday, 12/27/2015 was the 31st Sunday After Pentecost in The Byzantine Rite, there were TWO Commemorations, one of St. Joseph, leading Blessed Mary Theotokos & Jesus out of Palestine into Egypt & of The Martyrdom of Protodeacon St. Stephen, 1st Martyr of The Church(Latin Rite Feastday on 12/26). Because of The Rage of King Herod, believing that the Three Magi had deceived him, he ordered all 1st Born Males under the Age of Two Years of age, slain, in his search for The Christ Child. This Gospel of St. Matthew was also read on The Feast Of The Holy Innocents on Monday, 12/28/2015. It was a powerful Gospel.
This was The Divine Liturgy Of St James The Apostle, 1st Bishop of Jerusalem. The Divine Liturgy Of St James is the OLDEST Liturgy Of The Catholic Church, both East & West. James is a Cousin of Jesus, or “Brother Of The Lord.” This Liturgy is from 60 AD. It is the Root Liturgy for The Divine Liturgies of St John Chrysostom and St. Basil The Great. The Divine Liturgies are Sung, with the Human Voice as the Musical Instrument. There is No Organist. There is a Choir(Tridentine Version is The Schola).
Some Litany Chants were done in Slavonic, some were done in Russian, with the majority done in English.
The Reception of Holy Communion followed an Ancient Antiochian Formula. One appears before an Acolyte holding Thurible where one incenses ones hands, one then bows before The Priest, who recites the words Body of Christ, when one responds Amen. The Priest puts a tiny piece of The Corpus Christi on the Right Palm & one consumes this piece right away. The Byzantine Rite uses Leavened Bread in The Consecration. Then one appears and bows before The Deacon, who says “Blood OF Christ”, followed by Amen. The Deacon controls the Sacred Chalice. Absolutely no Laity perform this function. And as it should be. The Novus Ordo Mass has Unconsecrated Laity perform this function, hence the New Roman Rite, is engaged in Sacreligious Practices.
In the case of the Lector, a Female, she faced East when reading the Epistle of St. Paul The Apostle to The Galatians & sang the Epistle. The Choir sang the Graduale. The Deacon Proclaimed The Gospel According To St. Matthew The Apostle.
I wish that when Converts enter The Catholic Church, especially via the Roman/Latin Rite, that they instruct these Converts that there are 22 Sui Juris Eastern Catholic Churches in Union with the Holy See. I love how they do the Prayers for The Pope, Bishops, Priests, Deacons & Laity.
There is another thing in that you will make the Sign Of The Cross approximately 20 Times.
For you Nonathletic Novus Ordo Roman Rite Catholics, between bows & Signs of The Cross, be prepared to “Break a little Sweat.”

It’s CATHOLIC!

Kyrie Elaison!

“CatholiSchism”? “Voris Hates Us!”

27 Dec

I was viewing a “Faith Based Investigation” on ChurchMilitant.com, called “CatholiSchism”, a drawn out piece about The Society Of St Pius X, as hosted by Michael Voris, one who grew up on the Novus Ordo Mass, and is too young to remember Vatican II.
Michael Voris did NOT do any real reaearch. He did do the Special on ChurchMilitant.com. It was nothing but a Sheer Propaganda Piece.
And after Mass on Christmas Day, I met the Highly Regarded Catholic Historian and Writer, The Brilliant Dr John Rao. I mentioned that “A Certain Polemicist from Detroit is in The City this week, going after Cardinal Dolan.” John asked who it was, so I told him that it’s Michael Voris.
John exclaimed “Voris Hates Us(The Remnant).” I mentioned The Remnant & Catholic Family News, Michael Matt, Chris Ferrara & John Vennari & that I got a visit from The Big Cheque Writer in Texas(Originally From Long Island’s North Shore). John asked if Voris is liked at Holy Innocents, which I then remarked that Voris isn’t as liked as Voris thinks he is.

According To “Captain Schism”, Pope Honorius was declared a Saint by Byzantine Catholic Churches. Wrong, Verenky Breath! Honorius I is a Saint in the Eastern ORTHODOX Churches. The Authority to make Saints in The Catholic Church, comes out of The Holy See.
Vatican II, a Doctrinal Council with Teachings CONDEMNED by Previous Popes & Councils?  What? The Novus Ordo Mass didn’t come from Vatican II? The Blueprint came in Sacrosanctum Concilium. It is starkly apparent that you didn’t really read Sacrosanctum Concilium. Religious Liberty putting the Protestants on a footing that they”re part of The Church? Jews, Hindus & Muslims need not convert to the One, True Faith? You declare War on The SSPX for not accepting this as Catholic Teaching?  Are you sure YOU aren’t in SCHISM?  Who elected YOU as Pope? Besides, WHAT GAME ON FOX ARE YOU WATCHING?

Gary? Pride goeth before The Fall.
And ripping Cardinal Dolan “A New One” every week is NOT going to cut it.

Evangelisation Can Be As Easy As A Click

24 Dec

A very wise man by the name of Father Christopher Salvatori, who is most noted for The Tridentine Latin Mass in many locations in the RC Archdiocese of New York, particularly at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan, says that Evangelism can be as easy as a click of one’s mouse.

How Very True:

Think about this as there are Catholic Sources that need to be pushed out there. Use Twitter, Facebook & Google+, agressively.

If you have a Smartphone, there are apps for The Video Services. And there are Live Services such as Veetle, Tarsii, Ustream, Bambuser &, Yes, You Tube. If the Evangelical Protestants can web telecast their services, well so can you, telecast that Mass or Divine Liturgy.

And another thing, at The March For Life, do televise from your phones certain short segments. It is important that the message gets out there. Emphasize Your CATHOLICISM.

A Blessed Octave of Christmas!

Gloria In Excelcis Deo!
