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.

Catholic Radio Beyond EWTN

21 Feb

I’m listening to Relevant Radio with TuneIn. #No
wPlaying http://tun.in/seprW
Growing up here in NYC, particularly in Brooklyn, outside of owning a shortwave radio, there was really no such thing as Catholic Radio, unless one picked up Vatican Radio on Shortwave. Now there were Protestant Radio Stations & even Jewish Radio, but nothing of Catholic Radio.
Now there is The Web and a growth of Catholic Radio. On Shortwave I used to listen to EWTN in the 1990s & eventually via the web. It was great because until this century, EWTN was not yet on Time Warner Cable in the 5 Boroughs.
There are 3 such Catholic Stations, an AM FM Combo & one in Newark NJ, whose signals reach NYC. One is in Trenton NJ & the FM is in Freehold NJ. I usually use the Tune In Radio App to access these stations. There is a 4th Station, WQOM in Boston, also accessed by the Tune In App.
Give them a listen. You’ll learn about The Catholic Church.

Deo Gratias!

The Church Militant In The Byzantine Rite

22 Jan

Michael Voris is NO MATCH for the Ukrainian Greek Catholics in Manhattan’s East Village. If Voris ever got out of line with these Catholics, they would march on “The Warehouse In Detroit”, with lit torches. They would even be joined by Tridentine Latin Mass Communities, one on the East Side of Manhattan on East 43rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue and the one on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. This Sight wouldn’t be pretty, especially the Chant of “S, S, P, X”.
Thanks to the Discombobuluted, Ever Loving MTA, with E Trains running Local over the F Line & A Trains running over the F Line, I eventually decided against the NO Mass & went to St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the East Village on E 7th Street between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue for the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom. It was at 4:00PM in English. It was a Low Mass as there was no Cantor Available.

It was Sunday Before Theophany(Epiphany), as this Parish operates on the Julian Calendar(Yesterday was January 4th on the Julian Calendar). I did see some amici from Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan at this Divine Liturgy. Nouveau Tridentine Latin Mass Catholics, particularly the younger ones, will not hesitate to head to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgies. They do hesitate to head to the Novus Ordo Mass though.
The Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom was offered by The Economos(Pastor) of St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the Very Reverend Fr Bernard Panzcuk, OSBM(Ordo Sancti Basilli Magni, or Order of St. Basil The Great), Fr Superior of The Order.
The Baptism Of The Lord was The Theme & so was the Descent Of The Holy Ghost in the form of A Dove. The Holy Ghost makes us Holy, as Does Christ having instituted The Eucharist just before He died on The Cross.But, thtough Baptism, we enter into Christ’s Life through Grace.

In Nomini Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritu Sancti, Amen.

“Independent Catholic Media? Seriously?”

8 Jan

I went over to churchmilitant.com & on there, a Video from “The Marian Catholic”, hosted by one Christopher McCarthy, was playing about the need for “Independent Catholic Media.” McCarthy even spins the Pencil like Michael Voris when the 1st Pot Shot was fired. It was so blatant, it was as if Mr Voris had copied the script from the..ahem.. “Executive Producer”(The Big Cheque Writer in Texas), & sent along to Christopher to use on his program.

Dr John Rao is RIGHT when he said one Sunday after The 11:00AM Tridentine Latin Mass at St Agnes on E43rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, that “Voris Hates Us(The Remnant).” Now Mr Voris is using Kids to attack Traditional Roman Catholic Media.

McCarthy attacked The Remnant as an outlet, leading people into Schism, while calling ChurchMilitant.com, the ONLY outlet defending the Fullness of Catholic Truth. Like when did your channel become a Mouthpiece for “The Vortex, Where Truth & Orthodoxy is Deleted?
Like I always ask, WHAT GAME ON FOX ARE YOU WATCHING? You sound like a Susidiary of Voris’ Cheque Writer.

You must be subsidized by “The Cheque Writer.” Why else do you sound like The Man With The Pompadour. Your Silence about this pontificate, like your Master’s Silence, is deafening.
You’re The Son that Michael Voris never had.

The Synod Of Doom(Credit C. Ferrara)

6 Oct

The Remnant & Catholic Family News will have Digital Reports from Rome including video. EWTN will have live sessions on the Synod.
Salt & Light TV, which is the Canadian Digital Internet Outlet from Toronto, a stone’s throw from The Petermans’ Bridge(If you watch CBC Television, I think you get the idea), will have live Coverage of certain sessions of the Synod.

The Loneliest Correspondent:
I don’t believe that it will be Fr Thomas ROSICA, who is the Head of Salt & Light TV.
Let’s just say that his FAVORITE 6 Letter Word is SCHISM. His least favorite Alphabet Letters are “S, P & X”, especially when “S” is used twice in a row.
His studio facilities are in Suburban Ferndale, MI, in what is called “The Warehouse In Detroit.”

Whenever something questionable was said by Papa Bergoglio, there was the excuse of “It’s A Bad Translation”, repeatedly transmitted. Usually, some Cardinal was substituted for an object of Derision(Just Ask Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan).

He Knows WHO He Is. His Least Favorite “Four Letter Word” is “SSPX.” Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke once told Pope Francis I that Pope Francis must make Catholic Teaching on Matrimony Clear and Unambiguous. But THAT Story was censored by The Correspondent With The Moe Howard Pompador, as The Correspondent(We Are NOT Talking About John Hodgman)was informed by Someone(Reportedly a Diocesan Priest of The Diocese of London, ON, who belongs to an Organisation with the Letters “O. D.”), that The Correspondent couldn’t receive Holy Communion because of The Report being Critical of Pope Francis. It was a Good Broadcast Report, but that it conflicts with the “OD’s” rule of NOT Criticising The Pope.

Look for More Rippings of Cardinal Dolan over the Next Few Weeks.

“The Pope Is Playing The Garden, Just Like Sinatra Did”

26 Sep

The OLD, Traditional EWTN With Mother Angelica still in charge, was a Different Kind of Satellite & Cable Television Channel. Trite Tripe such as what was spoken on EWTN last evening, would be replaced by Mother Angelica, who would have “Ripped Obama A New One.” Mother ripped into the Post Vatican II Style Bishops during the Coverage of World Youth Day 1993, as well as ripping into Bill & Hillary Clinton. World Youth Day 1993 was in Denver, CO.
One wonders WHY I stay with Coverage on Tradition Minded Outlets as “The Remnant Newspaper”, “Catholic Family News” & “Harvesting The Fruit of The Vatican II”, especially when Louie Verrecchio produces his own “Ironic Videos”, stuff which would NOT Make the Cut on EWTN. I eagerly await the Commentary of Michael Matt & Christopher Ferrara, as well as from CFN Media with John Vennari.
Of course, for Contrast, Michael Voris will Rip “Cardinal Dolan A New One”, and totally forget Pope Francis.
Pope Francis I is now in Philadelphia, in a City where Booing Funerals & The Phillies are commonplace for “The World Meeting Of Families” is occurring, as a Prelude to “The October Synod AGAINST The Family.” EWTN is carrying that Coverage in “The City of Brotherly Love.”

So The Pope Played The Garden. And NYC is back to Normal.

The Long Papal Day At Central Park NYC

26 Sep

Anticipation was great, so I went to Morning Mass at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills, Queens. It is a Pious Thing to do on the Second Ember Day of Three Ember Days for the Fall Season. It is a way of doing Penance, so I went without Meat & Alcohol.
One Priest, namely OLQM’s Administrator, Fr Francis Passenant had tickets for West 61st Street and Central Park Drive. That gave him proximity to the B Train at Columbus Circle, where he could get it to W53rd Street/7th Avenue to change for the E Train Train back to Forest Hills.
Funny but Fr Frank recommended staying home and watching this on Television.

Above is the Link to all The Holy Excitement.
