Mobile Coverage & Signals In Central Park

26 Sep

In Regards to MetroPCS:
It’s Wholly Owned by T Mobile & the T Mobile Signal & Data were strong 4G LTE. Hey, coverage via Bambuser.com was strong.

Verizon Wireless:
Complaints from users in Central Park were rather numerous, as the Network may have been overcrowded. Trying to transmit Data from Central Park was a chore during the Papal Procession in Central Park. Then again, You Tube was overcrowded.

AT&T was busy. Sprint, well, STILL SUCKS. Text Messaging flowed all around the World from Central Park. I received a text from Europe & responded, as the Message came from AC 917.

This is the Big Difference between Pope Saint John Paul II’s Masses in both Aqueduct Race Track & Central Park. None of us had Smartphones, nor Text Messaging in 1995.

But, This Papal Visit is one for the books and one wonders just how did we do without these conveniences.

We just did!

Deo Gratias!

“Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom at the 2013 Napa Institute Conference” on YouTube

18 Aug

This EWTN Special Presentation is of the Napa Institute Conference.
The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Catholic Church, is a Liturgy of The Byzantine Rite of The Catholic Church as well as the Eastern Orthodox Churches.
Many Traditional Catholics, without access to the Tridentine Latin Mass in the 1970s, often went to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgies, as opposed to the Novus Ordo Mass, because to Traditional Catholics, the Novus Ordo Mass was heavily Protestantized Liturgy.

Do note that in the Divine Liturgy, the Priest faces Liturgical East, just like in the Tridentine Latin Mass.
The idea of Lay Lectors and Cantors, is Byzantine Rite in Origin, but none are in the Sanctuary. In fact, like the Priest, the Cantor & Lector, who are often the same Man or Woman faces Liturgical East just like The Priest. So if you have a Permanent Deacon at Mass preaching The Gospel, this is of Byzantine Rite Origin.
Holy Communion Under Both Species is of Byzantine Rite Origin. Standing for Holy Communion is also Byzantine Rite Origin.
But, Holy Communion In The Hand(A Mano) is Protestant in Practice.
The Byzantine Rite Practice of receiving both Body and Blood, is via Intinction and one receives the Sacrament via a Priest who utilizes Holy Communion Spoon to drop the Body and Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ in one’s mouth, head tilted back.
If only the Roman Rite could do this, instead of Station To Station, it would cut out Holy Communion A Mano.
If anything, the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is Ancient, Traditional, Beautiful and Catholic. The Novus Ordo is NOT.

BUT, the Novus Ordo is still a Valid Mass.

I Watched Cardinal Dolan’s Show On EWTN

10 Aug

It was a fascinating hour on EWTN.

Regis Philbin left me laughing.

Kelleigh Gufstafson, with A Rare, incurable Medical Condition, caused my eyes to well up with tears.

The Story of The Holocost was fascinating.

The Middle East Stories of the Persecution of Christians is Food For Thought.

I viewed this on the EWTN App. EWTN traverses the various Time Zones around the world.

It was a great hour.

Deo Gratias!

Pentecost Is Actually 8 Days

20 May

When the Ecclesiastical Calendar went from the Tridentine to Novus Ordo, the Time of Pentecost went from 8 Days to just the Saturday Vigil and Sunday Mass Schedule. The PROTESTANTIZATION of The Roman|Latin Rite of The Catholic Church, would basically be complete. The Day after Pentecost would be the continuation of what began after Baptism of The Lord, namely Ordinary Time, instead of what used to be called Time After Pentecost.

Pentecost, which is Ten Days after Ascension Thursday, used to begin on Saturday with Vigil of Pentecost, followed by Pentecost Sunday and go through into the Saturday before Trinity Sunday. Easter Season ends on That Saturday before Trinity Sunday. Four Days After Trinity Sunday, came The Feast of Corpus Christi. The Sunday after Corpus Christi began the Cycle called Time After Pentecost. It is in October that The Feast Of Christ The King came to be celebrated in All The Churches In Union With The Holy See.

For those who practice by The Tridentine Calendar, Pentecost Is An Octave, like Easter and Christmas.
When the Calendar Change to Novus Ordo occurred, Blessed Paul VI went to celebrate The Mass Of The Octave of Pentecost. What surprised him unto the point of Crying, was that in addition to the New Mass, Bugnini & Company came up with a Totally New Liturgical Calendar.
The Gutting of The Calendar of The Roman|Latin Rite was Complete. Thus, the Era of The Novus Ordo was in full swing.

The Church has not been the Same, but is going through Her Passion. These past 45 Years have caused many Parishes and Schools to fold up.

It’s Sad.

But with the Resumption of the Tridentine Latin Mass, albeit on a Limited Basis, some sense of Solemnity and Sanity will keep One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, continues. The Eastern Catholic Churches are holding The Fort. They, along with The Tridentine Latin Mass, represent Tradition.

Kyrie Elaison

The Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

12 Nov

http://www.ewtn.com/library/LITURGY/DILITSJC.TXT

The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is every bit as Catholic as the Tridentine Latin Mass. It should be so noted that in the Prayers of The Litany, when praying for the Bishops and Priests and Religious, the ejaculation, “For Our Holy & Universal Pontiff, Francis, Pope of Rome”, is said 4 Times.

You will say “Lord Have Mercy”, many, many times.

Kyrie Elaison!
Deo Gratias!

M, Eh!
