Three Miracles On The 10th Sunday of Ordinary Time(2nd Sunday After Pentecost)

6 Jun

It was in the Old Testament Reading where The Prophet Elias(Elijah) came into a house where a widow’s young child had died.
He took the child into an upstairs room, put the child on a bed & put his body over the child Three Times. The child came back to life.
In The Gospel according to St Luke, the son of a Widow had died. Jesus came into the house and raised up the son.
Both are Miracles. Both prefigure the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Mother Mary Theotokos was also a Widow.
The Third Miracle occurs at EVERY Catholic Liturgy in The World, as the Offered Bread and Wine becomes The Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity, through the action of The Priest, acting in Christ’s Person as an Alter Christus. This does NOT occur in most Protestant Ecclesiastical Communities because most of these Communities have no VALIDLY Ordained Priesthood.

Vivat Christus Rex!
Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis!

“I’m Voting For Trump. I Don’t Care What The Catholics Say”

12 Mar

This is from a Devout Catholic, who is no Neo Catholic. This Woman is a Close Friend of Mine. Pope Francis absolutely INFURIATES Her(I haven’t Trusted this Pope from Day TWO). She calls “A Spade, A Spade.” Protestants & Eastern Orthodox are Heretics.
I realise that The US Bishops as an Exercise in that Vatican II Practice called “Collegiality”, as a Group or “Hapless Bench”, are certainly NOT “In The Centre”, but, rather, Operatives of The Political Entity of Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama, something which I call the Demagogic Party, officially the Democratic Party of The United States of America(Just ask Cardinal Bravo, which a “Little Birdie Told Me”).
Neo Catholics infuriate her. They enrage me. They have No Solution to a Problem. They are “Go With The Flow” and agree with Papal Novelties. If there were “Altar Trangenders” & if Pope Francis I said they were OK, The NeoCats would go along with The Pope.

Neo Catholics don’t have a clue.

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!

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.

I Don’t Recognize Ordinary Time As Catholic

11 Jan

For One Should see the Real Roman Latin Mass Calendar & realise that we are still in The Christmas Cycle.
Wednesday Is Still Baptism Of The Lord & that there are Sundays After Epiphany until Septuagesima Sunday on 01/31/2016, with the Final Christmas Cycle day of February 2nd, The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.

WE ARE ROMAN/LATIN RITE Catholics, NOT Presbyterians.

The Novus Ordo Mass Calendar Is

11 Jan

Reformed Protestant in Style, except for all The Added Saints.

The Presbyterian Style is where the term “Ordinary Time” comes from. From the Sunday after The Transferred Celebration of Epiphany, called “Baptism Of The Lord”, which is the End of The Octave of Epiphany(On The Tridentine Mass Calendar, Epiphany is still January 6th & Baptism Of The Lord is still January 13th), the 1st Sunday After Epiphany used to be Feast Of The Holy Family, and the Last Day of The Christmas Cycle(Tridentine) is Candlemas Day-The Feast Of The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.
But, in the Interest of The False Ecumenism, there is a Table where the Priest has his back turned away from God, toward the Congregation, and Ordinary Time.

Funny, but The Anglican Communion, The Lutheran Communion & The Methodist Communities all have Advent, Christmastide, Epiphany, Time After Epiphany, & Time After Pentecost, so the Cycles come together, Both Christmas & Easter. Instead the Roman/Latin Rite tries to be something it isn’t & that is all Flavors of Heretical Protestant.
And most Novus Ordo Catholics think Protestant Style. And the Catechisis is AWFUL.

The Next Neo Catholic Polemicist who says that Vatican II has nothing to do with the Novus Ordo Mass, will be relieved of his hairpiece.
Capice?
