The Feast Of St. Mark Evangelist, Russian Easter & Prayers For Michael Voris

27 Apr

I was at the Missa Solemnes of The Feast Of St Mark Evangelist at HOLY INNOCENTS, last evening.
It was the 6PM Tridentine Latin Mass, which was a Solemn High Mass, with Priest, Deacon & Subdeacon.
For you see, St. Mark Evangelist is one of The 4 Evangelists who wrote Gospels. St. Mark Evangelist established the See & Rite of Alexandria, Egypt in The Catholic Church.
The Celebrant Priest was the Pastor of Holy Innocents, Fr Leonard Villa, assisted by Deacon, who is a Priest of The RC Archdiocese of New York & The Subdeacon was played by Eddy Toribo, who is a Sacristan, who emails me with various Holy Innocents Parish Events.
The Epistle was The Prophet Exichiel:
Four Men become as Eagles, Moved by The Holy Ghost to wherever they are needed.
The Roman Graduale was sung.
The Alleluia was sung.
Eddy Toribo proclaimed in Latin, the Epistle which was Old Teatament.
The Gospel according to St. Luke Evangelist was proclaimed in Latin by The Deacon. This was the Time when Christ commissioned 72 Disciples to go forth and Preach The Good News. Everyone worked in pairs.
The Homily was given by Fr Leonard Villa, who read both the Epistle & Gospel in English & spoke of St. Mark.
Holy Communion is kneeling at a Holy Communion Rail and receiving on one’s tongue from a Priest or Deacon. There is no standing & receiving Christ as if He was a Cocktail Snack.
“Faith Of Our Fathers” was sung as Priest, Deacon & Subdeacon were leaving the Sanctuary.

Prayers were offered for Michael Voris & his Enemies.

Talk took place among Catholic Trads about where to celebrate “Russian Easter.” One woman Trad talked about St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on East 7th Street in the East Village. This is a Catholic Church of The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Eparchy of Stamford, CT. I have often gone there for the Sunday, 4:00PM Divine Liturgy in English. I just have to find out the Starting Time for The Divine Liturgy. I have to experience this Liturgy. Or I can do this at Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Astoria, Queens. Both are Old Calendar(Julian)Catholic Churches.

By the Way, Fr Villa spoke of “The Old Evangelization. Let’s all share the Faith of The Fathers.

Deo Gratias!

EWTN”Knights of Columbus 133rd Supreme Convention Wednesday Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom”

25 Apr

I may be from The Roman/Latin Rite of One, Holy Catholic & Apostolic Church, but, Any Time I have attended a Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom(Doctor of The Church), I am INTENSELY Moved.

EWTN carried this Broadcast of The Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor & Doctor Of The Church) as part of The 133rd Supreme Convention of The Knights Of Columbus from Philadelphia, PA. The Prime Celebrant was Ukrainian Greek Catholic Archbishop Stefan Soroka of the Archeparchy of Philadelphia. There were many Priests, both Ukrainian and Latin Rite.
This is a Catholic Liturgy which I am most familiar with. Add The Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Honour Guard, and this becomes so solemn. Let me say that, while it is sung in English, with some Old Slavonic & Ukrainian added, it has more of The Feel of The Tridentine Latin Mass, as The Priest faces Eastward.
During The Prayer For Fervent Supplication, I was moved so Deeply, that I was crying, for it was a Prayer calling for the Beatification of Venerable Fr Michael J. Mc Givney, Founder of The Knights Of Columbus. This was before the Nicene Creed.
Great Choir from The Immaculate Conception Shrine Basilica in Washington, D.C.(Part of The Ukrainian Archeparchy of Philadelphia & the RC Archdiocese of Washington, D.C.). And Byzantine Rite Tradition forgoes the use of Musical Instruments so all you hear is live a Capella.

I believe that the Upcoming Sunday Mass will be a Divine Liturgy in the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom.
I need it to fight “The Good Fight”, as St. Paul puts it.

Christ Is Risen
Indeed, He Is.

“That Took Balls, Michael! I Like That!”

23 Apr

WHOA!
The Public Admission of Past Sexual Sins ALREADY Confessed by G. Michael Voris, proves that the Guy has BALLS.

My Words of Advice & WARNING to the Schemesters of The RC Archdiocese of New York & Detroit are as follows:

CUT THE CRAP OUT & Boldly Proclaim THE FAITH & Not The Cotton Candy.

Granted, I don’t always agree with G. Michael Voris in everything except Doctrine. The thought that Vatican II is Gospel Truth, when it contradicts Traditional Teaching in several sections. The SSPX Special Series sounded like it was the Personal Manifesto of The Texas Based Backer, who is a Long Island Native. Trying to excuse the Current Pope through the Mantra, “It’s a BAD Translation” doesn’t cut it with me.

Remember in your Prayers, those who proclaim The Glory of The Catholic Faith & Her Truth for She is The Bride Of Christ.

Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis, Amen!

Sesame Street Now Is On HBO

18 Apr

In 1970, Sesame Street had its’ premiere in Prime Time on NBC. From there, it became a mainstay of PBS Stations in the USA.

Now, it’s on Home Box Office or HBO. Forty Six Years is a Long Time for a Children’s Show.

But then, Cable is no longer the exclusive home of HBO. The same can be said of Showtime. Both are are on Satellite Services. And in the age of the World Wide Web, one can watch on Big Box Computer, a Laptop, a Tablet or a Smartphone.

Suddenly, there is a fascination with the Small Screen. And one can carry this Small Screen in one’s pocket. There’s no need for a Big Box Television & one can view on demand, without being confined to any edifice.

I GOT HBO(But No Television).

17 Apr

I’ve Got HBO!
But I don’t own a Big Screen Television. Thirty Years Ago, if I didn’t own a Colour TV, for me to brag that I have HBO, would be a Ticket to “The Funny FARM.”

But, now Smartphones are our communications centres. And they can do what a big box computer can do. I neither need a Television nor Radio, but I do have The Web.

Hence, I can watch “Seinfeld” on Hulu or “Sesame Street” on HBO, without Cable or Satellite, ditto Major League Baseball.

Yadda, Yadda!

A Pope, The Magisterium & “Mr Mouthwash”

14 Apr

Matrimony is tied into The Eucharist. Violating the Bond of Matrimony through Divorce, does NOT mean that this Sacrament is dissolved. It cannot be dissolved. The Catholic Church, however, through Annulment, judges as to whether or not a Valid Marriage had occurred. One may not enter into a Civil “Second Marriage” as this would constitute Adultery & both parties under Church Law would be denied the Sacraments, particularly Holy Communion & Penance. This was called Excommunication when I was educated in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn. Divorce was unheard of when I was in Catholic School.

I had a Speech Therapist. A nice woman, she resided in Forest Hills Gardens in Queens. She was divorced with two sons. She was not Catholic. I think she was Lutheran. I asked my Mom about Divorce. Her answer was “That’s what Protestants do.” Annulment is NOT in Protestant Vocabulary. Nor is it in the Vocabulary of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. Divorce, sadly, is in both Protestant & Eastern Orthodox Faiths.
For Christ said that Marriage is Forever & Divorce is out of The Question, so Second Marriages were out of The Question.

Like “What Game On FOX is Pope Francis I watching?” He, from Observation, either doesn’t understand Doctriine, or disregards Doctrine completely. As the Utterly Liberaltastic Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio, a person who was Divorced & Civilly Remarried in the RC Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, often received Holy Communion with Cardinal Bergoglio’s Permission. He often visited Los Barrios(Slum Areas), where many people were married a few times, and authorized the giving of Holy Communion to these Multi Marrieds, who divorced and Civilly Remarried. It is contrary to Church Law and The Magisterium to do this but Bergoglio was a Disobedient Archbishop.

The Apple doesn’t fall far from the Tree. In his early goings as Pope Francis I, Bergoglio gave Telephone Permission to two women who were divorced/Civilly Remarried to receive Holy Communion. These are the only two women that anyone knows of. It may have occurred more times than what we know of the two women.

It is as if Rome is the New Buenos Aires. As there were two Synods, called “Synods On The Family”(More like “Synods Of Doom” as Christopher Ferrara calls them) in October, 2014 & 2015, called by Pope Francis I. His Intent is to Change Doctrine via the “Pastoral Route”, whereby the Law stays on the books but a new interpretation is given to that Law.
Welcome to Stealth.

Neo Catholic Broadcast Journalist Who Denies This Heresy:
Actually The Neo Catholic Broadcast Journalist Who runs a Studio under subsidy of a Fat Cat Backer In Texas, is into Censorship of the variety which would make the CHINESE Envious.
(The North Koreans would be even more envious).
Papalotry runs deep here. Censoring a report that Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke called for Pope Francis I to be more clear at Synod Of Doom Part One, tells me that this Internet TV outlet, would be useful to the current Papacy, as a Mere Propaganda Tool. The Executive Producer is named in part for a Mouthwash.
Of course, if Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan comits an act of Flatulence aboard a Northbound IND 6th Avenue D Train headed to Yankee Stadium, this outlet will break in with Correspondents in New York & Detroit to announce the Flatulence, but when Pope Francis I is pronouncing Heresy in an Exhortation, it is WHITEWASHED.
MR Mouthwash, your report is Drivel. It says NOTHING about the Evil being perpetrated. It is as if The Evildoer does NOT exist.
And you don’t read the Vatican Documents.
YOU ARE A MOUTHPIECE FOR A FAT CAT IN TEXAS, whose Nuns in Oyster Bay, North Shore of Long Island where that FAT CAT GREW UP, didn’t smack this guy around enough. Neither did his High School Brothers in Mineola, in the Town of North Hempstead, teach this guy a Lesson.
Are you sure that you’re a Newsman, Mr Mouthwash?

The Remnant Newspaper, Catholic Family News, akaCatholic.com, Rorate Caeli & Mundabor’s Sites, I fully recommend as Catholic Sites. The Internet TV outlet in Ferndale, MI, heavily hosted by Mr Mouthwash, is NOT on my recommended list.

I Am About To Buy Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Apr

And use it for Psoriasis. The Steroid Cream is not for me. The last time I went to a Dermatologist, the Psoriasis went away, but came back.
Acupuncture also works with it.

So, all I have to do is walk to the grocery & buy the Apple Cider Vinegar & sponge it on the affected areas of my legs.

It’s also cheaper than the Doctor.
