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.

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!

2nd Sunday of Lent :(Tridentine Latin Mass)

21 Feb

The Tranfiguration:
The Christ & The Apostles on a Mountain;
The Miracle of The Lord Talking To Elijah & Moses;
Simon Peter, amazed by this, calls for building 3 Booths, with One For Jesus & the other two for Elijah & Moses;
God The Father comes on a Cloud & tells The Apostles “This Is My Beloved Son On Whom My Favor Rests. Listen To Him.”
It was to give The Apostles a Foretaste of Heaven & The Divine & have them Believe In Him. This is in The Gospel According to St. Matthew.

I now realize that The Tridentine Latin Mass is exact & orderly. The Epistle and Gospel Readings are the same. There is No ABC Cycle like “The Novus Ordo Mass.” And the Homiilies are good, in fact better than a Novus Ordo Mass.

The Tridentine Latin Mass speaks Catholic. The Novus Ordo Mass is a Mass of Mankind.

Deo Gratias!
