In The Ice & Cold Ahead In NYC & New York State

13 Feb

In Albany, it is worse at 4°F(-16°C). But it is Windy here, at 15°F(-8°C), with Wind Chill Temperature at -11°F(-25°C).

Nevertheless, as Sunday is The Lord’s Day, I plan to make it to Mass, Somewhere. I may even head via IND SUBWAY 6th Avenue F Train to Broadway Lafayette to 266 Mulberry Street to 1st Sunday of The Great Lent at St. Michael’s Russian Greek Catholic Chapel. Or it might be Holy Innocents. Holy Innocents Tridentine Latin Mass is at 10:30AM, while St. Michael’s Russian Greek Catholic Chapel has the Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom at 11:00AM. St. Agnes is also a TLM Option at 11:00AM.
Dumb Muzak is Not an Option. The Eucharist is Where It’s At.

Most Interesting!

“Gospel & Homily Feast Of St John Chrysostom” on YouTube

28 Jan

It is in Tridentine Latin Mass Calendar Country, where one will find the Great Eastern Catholic Heirachial Saints being honoured.

I know that you may think of St. John Chrysostom as a Heirarch Saint of Eastern Orthodoxy, particularly Greek Orthodox Churches, but he is a CATHOLIC Saint, Bishop, Confessor & Doctor of The Church. He was Archbishop of Constantinople, in short, Patriarch of Constantinople, in the time of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. He is Patron Saint of Orators & Preachers. He was at war with Heretics called Arians. Arians believed the Heretical Teachings of a Priest called Arius, who taught that Jesus Christ was a Super Perfect Man, but NOT GOD.
He was a Student of St
Basil The Great(Bishop, Martyr, Confessor & Doctor Of The Church).
St. John Chrysostom did much anslysis of the Gospels and gave great commentary.
He was a True Reformer of The Catholic Liturgy. With the Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia & Gospel, it became the Practice of The Eastern Catholic Churches & eventually the Latin Church.Since the Liturgy was about the Re-presentation of Christ’s Sacrifice on The Cross, St. John Chrysostom wrote an Anaphora & added the Prayer Response from a New Testament Codex “For Thine is The Kingdom, The Power & The Glory, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, Now & Ever & Forever”, which is the Doxology of The “Our Father”, chanted by the Priest. It is also chanted by the Priest in an earlier part of The Divine Liturgy.
But, his orations of The Gospel & Homilies are what he was known for, as well as certain short statements attributed to him. He is quoted 18 Times in “The Catechism Of The Catholic Church.”
There is more to The Catholic Church than just the Latin(Roman) Church. Learn the Eastern Catholic Churches & you will truly learn about The Church which Christ Founded.

Deo Gratias!
Vivat Christus Rex!

“CatholiSchism”? “Voris Hates Us!”

27 Dec

I was viewing a “Faith Based Investigation” on ChurchMilitant.com, called “CatholiSchism”, a drawn out piece about The Society Of St Pius X, as hosted by Michael Voris, one who grew up on the Novus Ordo Mass, and is too young to remember Vatican II.
Michael Voris did NOT do any real reaearch. He did do the Special on ChurchMilitant.com. It was nothing but a Sheer Propaganda Piece.
And after Mass on Christmas Day, I met the Highly Regarded Catholic Historian and Writer, The Brilliant Dr John Rao. I mentioned that “A Certain Polemicist from Detroit is in The City this week, going after Cardinal Dolan.” John asked who it was, so I told him that it’s Michael Voris.
John exclaimed “Voris Hates Us(The Remnant).” I mentioned The Remnant & Catholic Family News, Michael Matt, Chris Ferrara & John Vennari & that I got a visit from The Big Cheque Writer in Texas(Originally From Long Island’s North Shore). John asked if Voris is liked at Holy Innocents, which I then remarked that Voris isn’t as liked as Voris thinks he is.

According To “Captain Schism”, Pope Honorius was declared a Saint by Byzantine Catholic Churches. Wrong, Verenky Breath! Honorius I is a Saint in the Eastern ORTHODOX Churches. The Authority to make Saints in The Catholic Church, comes out of The Holy See.
Vatican II, a Doctrinal Council with Teachings CONDEMNED by Previous Popes & Councils?  What? The Novus Ordo Mass didn’t come from Vatican II? The Blueprint came in Sacrosanctum Concilium. It is starkly apparent that you didn’t really read Sacrosanctum Concilium. Religious Liberty putting the Protestants on a footing that they”re part of The Church? Jews, Hindus & Muslims need not convert to the One, True Faith? You declare War on The SSPX for not accepting this as Catholic Teaching?  Are you sure YOU aren’t in SCHISM?  Who elected YOU as Pope? Besides, WHAT GAME ON FOX ARE YOU WATCHING?

Gary? Pride goeth before The Fall.
And ripping Cardinal Dolan “A New One” every week is NOT going to cut it.

“Traditio, Traditio….Traditio”(A Touch Of “Fiddler On The Roof”)

18 Dec

My Most Dear Friend has gone & done it. After the purchase of a Used Tridentine Latin Mass Missal in 2013 & a White Mantilla in 2014 & a Black Mantilla in 2015, it was on Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 at the 6:00PM Tridentine Latin Mass at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, where she 1st Experienced “Traditio.”
The Mass, offered by a Priest, assisted by a Deacon & Subdeacon, was a Missa Solemnes(High Mass).

She has finally experienced “The REAL Roman/Latin Rite.” And Since she is a Convert from Greek Orthodoxy, she saw certain elements from the TLM which correspond to The Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom.
For she told me that she had gone to a Wedding Liturgy in The Hamptons at a Methodist Church & that this morning’s Novus Ordo Mass, looked like that Methodist Liturgy.
It was at this point that I explained the Novus Ordo Liturgy & the fact that this Liturgy had Protestants involved in the Design.

She noticed that the differences of the two Roman Rite Masses are “Night & Day.” Only one of them, the Tridentine Latin Mass, truly “Speaks Catholic”, especially on The High Altar.

On The Feast Of The Sacred Heart Of Jesus(Tridentine Calendar)

6 Dec

One of the more memorable moments of The Mass was the Singing of “Veni, Veni, Emmanuel”, a Hymn of Advent. This being 1st Friday, this evening’s Mass was a Missa Solemne.
For on this evening, it was the Time of Christ’s Crucifixion & the Piercing of His Side, from whence Blood & Water Flowed, as His Body was Dead, because the Roman Centurions decided not to break His Legs, due to The Death On The Cross.
One thing about the Beginning of Advent is that it tends to overlap in regards to the End of The Prior Liturgical Season.
For it is in The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass, That it is the Re Creating of Christ’s Sacrifice On The Cross. The Priest, acting “In Persona Christi”, offers The Bread & Wine, as “Another Christ”, to The Heavenly Father, a Propitiary Sacrifice for Remission of The Priest’s Sins, & The Sins of The Living & the Dead.
THIS Is No Mere “Memorial Meal.”

Kyrie Elaison!
