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.

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.

A Conversation With A VORISian NOT

12 Mar

I had one of those SSPX Conversations in Isaiah Hall at Holy Innocents on W37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue.
This NOT considers herself to be a Traditionalist Catholic &, yet, relies on information from Michael Voris & ChurchMilitant.com. It only works on occassion at Holy Innocents, but not at St. Agnes on E43rd Street between Lexington & 3rd Avenues, where The President of Una Voce New York, David Lane & Dr. John Rao, are known to “Hold Court” after the Sunday 11:00AM Mass, a place where the mere mention of “Schism Boy Voris” is met with Derision.
But one may get away with The Defence of Schism Boy Voris at Holy Innocents, as many 1st Timers at the Tridentine Latin Mass, head to Holy Innocents, though there are many Subscribers to John Vennari’s Catholic Family News & Michael J. Matt’s The Remnant Newspaper, who are offended by Michael Voris at Holy Innocents.
This nice young woman told me that the SSPX is “In Schism” because Michael Voris had a Big Special about it.

Michael Voris is a News Reporter, formerly from CBS at The Big Warehouse On West 57th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues in Upper Midtown Manhattan. He knows a thing or two about “Slanting The News.”
His “ChurchMilitant.com” gets a LOT of Viewers, many of the Converts to Catholicism. But, Sadly, a Texan with Huge Moolah, who is originally from Long Island’s North Shore, & with Ego to match the money, controls what is said on Programming. The Money Man also dictates who Michael’s(Or Is That Gary’s)Friends may be. The shows on this Channel, reflect the Opinions of The Man with The Money. The Old Programming under a Different Donor, was much better. But, Voris takes his marching orders from The Backers in two different eras. Hey, Cash is Cash.

Voris, quite simply, is a “Hired Gun.” His Ideology is “Whoever Has The Gold, Makes The Rules.” He is no independent. He is OWNED.

Getting back to “The VORISian NOT”, VORISian NOTS listen to everything he says. They rely on Voris for interpretation of Church Documents, such as Sacrosanctum Concilium(The Reform of The Mass, which turns out to be a Blueprint for the Novus Ordo Mass). Voris said that the Novus Ordo Mass was not a product of Vatican II. Yet, the Blueprint came out on December 4th, 1963. It is apparent that Voris never read the Document. Like WHAT GAME ON FOX was Voris watching? Granted the New Mass was rolled out on November 30th, 1969, but the Blueprint is from 1963. The Document had so many holes in it, you could run the IND Subway through it.
The VORISium NOT would not listen to what I had to say. It is as if ChurchMilitant.com & Michael Voris is all that matters.

The Gospels Over 3 Days

7 Mar

First Friday was Novus Ordo, as was Saturday, which is called Saturday of Our Lady. Today is the 1st Sunday. It is also the Fourth Sunday In Lent, called Laetere Sunday, which is a Lenten Sunday of Joy. It means that Easter(Pesach) is Nigh. And I was at St. Agnes on E43rd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
Friday, March 4th at 8:00AM & The Mass Celebrant was the Most Reverend Paul Sanchez, aided by the Pastor Emeritus of St. Vincent Ferrer Parish in Brooklyn, Monsignor Fursey O’Toole, Irish Born.
The Gospel was the Greatest Commandments, both of which summarize the 10 Commandments. As Jesus said “Thou Shalt Love The Lord Thy God, With All Thy Heart, With All Thy Soul, With All Thy Mind & With All Thy Strength. The Second Great Commandment is “Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbour as Thyself.” An Example of “Love Thy Neighbour” was given at The 12:05PM Mass by Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Administrator, Fr Frank Passenant & it was an Excellent Example. We don’t always look at Our Parents as Neighbours, but they are the Neighbours closest to you. Hey, They’re Neighbours by Blood. Pray For Them, both Living & Dead.
First Saturday at the 12:05PM Mass was offered by Fr Frank Passenant. This is the Story in The Gospel of The Pharisee & The Publican. The Pharisees were the Learned Religious Men. They were The Priestly Class of Judaism. But, they were NOT always known for their Humility. Everything was OUTWARD, but not always INTERIOR.
Publican is a Nice Name for The Most Hated of Roman Officials, namely The Tax Collector. Many of these Men were conmen, often taking more than what was due. For the Tax Collector was one who often lived like a Fat Cat. For he was a Private Contractor for the Roman Empire, who often took Liberties beyond what was due. And One of The Original 12 Apostles, Matthew, was originally a Tax Collector. He was also one of The 4 Evangelists in The Writing of The Gospels.
In this Gospel, The Pharisee is, in his Prayer to The Lord, bragging about how good he is, while degrading others such as Publicans. This guy was there to be seen, like close to The Sanctuary, practically telling The Lord that his “Excrement doesn’t have a foul odor.”
What A Schmuck!
Meanwhile, The Sinful Publican, barely able to raise his eyes Heavenward, who was all the way in the rear of The Temple, actually recognized the fact that he was a Sinner, & begged The Lord in this manner, “Lord, Be Merciful To Me For I Am A Sinner.”
The Publican received God’s Mercy. The Pharisee only got the Admiration of Man.
For Today on Lautare Sunday, as this is the Sunday indicating, that The Joy of Easter is Near, hence Vestments in the Bright Colour of Pink, Today’s Gospel for The Tridentine Latin Mass is The Miracle of The Loaves Of Bread & Fish. It was only 5 Loaves of Bread and 2 Fish, yet there was enough left over to fill 12 Baskets. There were 5,000 Men who were fed. This was The Miracle of The Loaves & Fish, and Jesus Multiplied the Loaves & Fish. No one left hungry.
Three Days, Four Masses & The Good News, The Gospel Of The Lord Jesus Christ!

Laus Tibi Christe!

For 1st Friday & 1st Saturday, I Will Stay Local

4 Mar

In short, I am staying here in Queens, in Forest Hills instead of running by Subway to Manhattan.
The Weather plays a part in it as it is snowing. So, a Doubleheader of Masses at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens, instead of running to Midtown Manhattan, will be what I do, today.
I have to head to Stations Of The Cross at 7:30PM at OLQM. It’ll be a Faith Based Day here.
I will record the Stations Of The Cross On You Tube Live Streaming. It should work better than the Queens County Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round III. OLQM Parishioners tend to watch You Tube.

Deo Gratias!

DAD In Canada Is So Sad

26 Feb

This stands for “Doctor Assisted Dying”. Actualy it is Suicide Via Doctor. “Dr Kevorkian” comes to Canada.
Quebec was once such a Catholic Province. The Shrine Of Ste. Anne De Beaupre is in Quebec, just outside of Quebec City.
The Question is Does Anyone in La Belle Province have The Catholic Faith?
Ever since “The Winnepeg Declaration” in 1968, which the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, declared their oppisition to Humanae Vitae, the Encyclical of Paul VI, one could actually say that The Roman Latin Church in Canada is in Schism, in defying The Eternal Teachings of One,Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church, of Matrimony & Procreation. The Archbishops of Mobtreal & Toronto, both brothers born in Montreal, essentially led a Schism by defying Church Teaching, with others who followed them.
The Barren Wombs, The Lack of Children, The Loneliness, Abortion On Demand, leads to emptiness in Spirit & Mind.

All this plays on the Mind & Soul & a bizarre WANT to end it all. Notice the 1st Initials of Doctor Assisted Dying, and notice what it Spells.
DAD! Quite Ironic, isn’t it.

Pray For Canada, Eh!

Kyrie Elaison!

Feast of The Chair of Saint Peter February 22nd

23 Feb

It was celebrated on both Novus Ordo & Tridentine Latin Mass Calendars. So I went to Mass last evening on the Tridentine Calendar to Holy Innocents on W37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, the 6PM Mass.
It was The Gospel According to St Matthew:
Jesus gathered His Apostles and asked of Them “Who Do People Say I Am?”
Simon tells Jesus that Jesus is The Christ, The Messiah, The Son Of God, to which Jesus tells Simon that Only The Father In Heaven could have revealed this to Simon. “Thou Art Peter(Kephas, Cephas)& upon This Rock, I Will Build My Church & The Gates of Hell shall NOT Prevail Upon It.”
Jesus gave Peter “The Keys of The Kingdom.”
“Whatever You Declare Loosed on Earth shall be Loosed in Heaven. Whatever You Declare Bound on Earth, shall be Bound in Heaven.”

St. Peter is the 1st Pope. The Church is a Divine Z Institution. Thus It Is The Catholic Church.

Deo Gratias!
Laus Tibi Christe!
