Feast Of The Sacred Heart Of Jesus

7 Nov

Divine Mercy On 1st Friday:
Christ’s Sacrifice On The Cross:
Baptism & Holy Communion expressed by Christ being Pierced with Water & Blood flowing from His Sacred Heart.
For Father preached last evening in regards to Divine Mercy comes ONLY WITH REPENTANCE, and comes through The Sacrament Of PENANCE. That is HOW we become UNITED To The Sacred Heart of Jesus. This was preached at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue.

Deo Gratias!

The Novus Ordo Mass & Unbelief

4 Nov

It was a Goal of The Revolutionary Father Annibale Bugnini, to come up with a Liturgy, which was “Ecumenical” in Nature, as part & parcel of The “False Ecumenism”, promoted in the Document on “Religious Liberty”, @ the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, a product of The “Americanist Heresy.” In short, The Mass would be REDUCED to The Protestant Concept of “The Lord’s Supper”, with the Priest as “A Little More Man Than The Rest.”
No longer would the Priest be Intercessor Before God. No longer would he recite Psalm 42(Judica Me Deus), and No Longer would he recite The Confiteor, asking for both Forgiveness of Sins & the Intercession of The Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Michael The Archangel, St. John The Baptist & The Holy Apostles, Saints Peter & Paul, each prayed to TWICE. Now it was to be a COLLECTIVE Prayer, with one Intercession of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin, with the the other saints eliminated, in the Interests of The False Ecumenism. The Collective Confiteor is based on the Lutheran & Anglican Confiteor, so by ONE Intercession of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin, a Piece of Roman Rite Catholicism would remain. Calling for TWO Intercessions of The FRATRES, is Merely HUMANISTIC.

Look at the Beauty which has been sacrificed for the sake of becoming like those who REJECT Catholic Truth. One wonders where so many Catholics disappeared to. Perhaps, many ended up as Mainline Protestants, such as Lutherans & Anglicans. And many Catholics who remain in Novus Ordo Land, think like Mainline Protestants, including support of Artificial Birth Control &, Sadly, ABORTION.

Denying The Sacrifice Of The Mass On A Table:
The APOSTATE Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, stated that “A Table Is Made For Preparing A Meal, While An Altar Is Made For Sacrifice.” According to the Great English Catholic Writer, Hillaire Belloc, Thomas Cranmer knew the Theology of The Mass & HATED IT. An APOSTATE Dominican Priest(Order Of Preachers of St. Dominic or OP) called Martin Bucer, who lost all belief in The Corporeal Real Presence of Christ In The Eucharist, introduced Communion A Mano to the Anglicans, to get the Faithful to lose all belief in The Corporeal Real Presence of Christ. An Offertory which no longer has the Priest making reparations for his Sins, nor praying for both Living & Dead, took out a lot from The Sacrificial Nature of The Mass. All of this was to please PROTESTANTS, when all this does is confirm them in their Error.
Then, 1st Communicants are taught that this is a “Sacred Meal.” Emphasizing this Meal is Holy Communion In The Hand, which arrived in The USA by the Dishonest Maneuvering of Archbishop Joseph Bernadin of Cincinnati, OH, when he was President Of The US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, via not following the Rules set forth in “Memoriale Domini”. Because that was NOT followed, Holy Communion In The Hand is actually NOT VALID in this Country. Think about THIS, as the Indult granted by The Holy See in 1977, is NOT VALID & Holy Communion In The Hand is Unlawful in The USA.

This Mass is called what Thomas Cranmer called it “The Lord’s Supper.” It is Valid as The Bread & Wine become The Body & Blood of Christ, but in presentation & gestures, it is Protestantism with a Catholic Colouring.

And we shouldn’t be Imitating Heretics. That is WHY we must return to The Mass as was offered from 1962 & BEFORE. That will restore belief in The Corporeal Real Presence of Christ In The Eucharist. That will restore Catholicism in The Roman Rite.

And the Pope must, with the Bishops, consecrate Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.
By The Way, Blessed Mary Ever Virgin means business.

Vivat Christus Rex!

Of Awe & Of All Souls

3 Nov

I have been to All Souls Day Masses in The Ordinary Form of Mass, where the Names of The Faithful Departed would be read in the Litany of The Faithful. I have been to the Mass of The Resurrection(What the Novus Ordo Mass Name for Requiem Mass is called). Protestantism has affected The Sensus Catholicus in such a way that Death, Judgement, Heaven & Hell, are rarely spoken about. Purgatory, in Novus Ordo Land, is almost never spoken about, which Fr Villa Preached in a Brief Homily.
Fr Leonard Villa offered the Mass, aided by The Deacon, Fr Christopher Salvatori, who it has been said, taught many a Priest in The RC Archdiocese of New York, including Fr Villa, to offer The Tridentine Latin Mass. The Subdeacon was an Altar Server named Eddie. In The Roman(Latin) Rite, Subdeacon was an Ordained Order until 1968 when the Sacraments underwent changes.

This is called “Missa Memorium Pro Defunctis”, or Memorial Mass For The Dead. We get the word Defunct from Defunctis, so in reality, the Tridentine Latin Mass is not all that difficult to follow.

There are many chants including “De Profundis”, which the chant “Out of The Depths I Cry Unto Thee, O Lord.”
On the Catervault, a Coffin, covered with a Black Cloth with Religious Marking, is displayed. There were Rites for the Dead, chanted in this ceremony.
At the Conclusion, there was a Procession to the Sacristy.

As This Missa Solemnis occurred The Epistle, Gradual, Tract & Gospel are chanted in Latin, as is the case of the Normal Tridentine Latin Mass.
So to conclude this Mass, the Epistle & Gospel were read in English & the Brief but Incisive Homily was given by Fr Villa. And then we were dismissed. The Theme of November is Prayer For The Souls In Purgatory.

On the way out, I met a Three Compatriots from The Queens Latin Mass Group. It was Grand to meet up with them. One of them brought her son. Last Year at Douglaston, that woman drove me to Woodhaven Blvd and Jamaica Avenue.

A Blessing of a Holy Water Dispenser and Font took place, with Fr Christopher Salvatori celebrating The Blessing, done in Latin, followed by Hyssoping those Present, in the Foyer of Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue.

It was a Night Of Awe & Prayers For The Dead.

Pray For The Souls In Purgatory, that they be admitted to The Beatific Vision of Heaven.

Deo Gratias!

All Saints Day Tridentine Latin Mass & A “Marathon”

2 Nov

As My Most Dear Friend says, to which I heartily concur, the Liturgical Muzak at the Missa Novus Ordo, is Treacly and “Does NOT Draw In.” And so, as I make my journey via the IND Queens Blvd 6th Avenue F Train, running as a Local, I am making my way to Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, in order to avoid the Treacly Musical Creature called “Pukeasaurus Rex.” “Table Of Plenty” does not cut it, in English, nor Latin, as it is “Pure Schutte”, as in a former member of the St. Louis Jesuits, writers of Treacly Muzak, which could lead to rather lengthy queues at Parish Vomitaria, with varying waiting times.
After Mets 2nd Baseman Dan Murphy’s Imitation of Red Sox 1st Baseman Bill Buckner at Citi Field in Game 4 of the 2015 World Series, queues at the Citi Field Vomitariums were lengthy. Buckner at least had a major excuse, in that he was injured. Murphy realized that he is a Free Agent, and may have been careless. Cespides is an oversized Bobby Bonilla Type with little Mobility.
So hence I headed to Holy Innocents & heard Mass in Latin. The Epistle was from The Apocalypse According To St. John Apostle. The Gospel According to St. Matthew was The Beatitudes. Fr Leonard Villa, Pastor, offered the Mass.
As FOX Sports has a Super Day of Sports on the Schedule, with an NFL Game in London, UK at 9:30AM EST(The Clocks Went back an hour), at 1PM with the NY Football Giants & 4:15PM with Dallas, followed by Game 5 of the 2015 World Series between the NY Mets & KC Royals from Citi Field in Corona, Queens, beginning at 8PM Eastern, it will be a long haul for FOX Sports. As this is the 1st Sunday in November, ESPN is carrying the NYC Marathon at 10AM EST.

At 10:30AM EST, an Ecclesiastical Marathon occurred at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, as it was The Tridentine Latin Mass for All Saints Day, lasting from 10:30AM to 12Noon, The Angelus in English, followed by a Coffee Hour which stretched until 2:30PM, followed by The Rosary(In English), Vespers for All Saints Day(Latin), and Vespers For All Souls Day in Latin.
Yes, The Race was long, but I am glad to have completed it. And I am Tired.
Deo Gratias!

Missa Requiem Et Metropolitanus Novi Eboraci

31 Oct

I headed via IND E Train to 5th Avenue East 53rd Street to switch to the M Train to W34th Street 6th Avenue, so to go to a Rare Tridentine Missa Pro Defunctis, where the Priest, Deacon & Subdeacon are vested in Black Vestments.
This is a Requiem Mass(You Remember Requiem Masses), not a cheery celebration of a Man’s or Woman’s Life. For the Missa Novus Ordo is Too Humanistic.
Pro Defunctis means “For The Dead”, not “Pro Metropolitanus”(For The NY Mets, Who Defeated the KC Royals at Citi Field 9-3).
The Priest of The RC Archdiocese of New York, offered the Mass alone with Two Servers, both Males, as this is ALWAYS the case at the Tridentine Latin Mass. It was that Great Eastern Catholic Patriarch, St. John Chrysostom, Patriarch of Constantinople, who coined this Gem which applies here:
“Is It Tradition? Ask No More.”

For The Soul Of The Faithful Departed, whether a Member of “Ecclesia Triumphante”(In Paradisium), or “Ecclesia Purgatorio”(The Church Suffering), The Prayer of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic, is of Fervent Supplication with the Chanting of Litanies, between The Epistle & Gospel. Those Living(Ecclesia Militante or Church Militant), are in Prayer & awed by This Litany. There are NO Guitarists singing a Responsorial Psalm, nor that Novus Ordo “Favorite”, “On Eagles Wings.”

At the end of The Last Gospel(The Incarnation), Father spoke of Our Relationship with God, coming via The Sacraments. He spoke in terms of Sunday’s NYC Marathon.
The Winners Finish The Race, and then they go to the Sidelines to root for the others to finish the race.
The Winners ARE “The Church Triumphant.”
We are NOT in This ALONE. It is NOT merely “Christ Is My Personal Savior”. We must Support One Another to The Ultimate Prize.

Metropolitanus Novi Eboraci Members did that Last Night. David Wright & Curtis Granderson built up and gave this support to The Team. And so did Fanaticae Metropolitanus build up their team, last night.

Deo Gratias!

“Vivat Christus Rex”(Traditional)

25 Oct

Long Live Christus Rex. Nevermind Religious Liberty. One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church is The Church Founded By Jesus Christ, Himself. He Is The Vine & There are 23 Branches.
For Today is the Traditional Feast Of Christ The King. The Only Part of The Church not celebrating The Feast is the part of the Roman/Latin Rite, called The Ordinary Form, also called Novus Ordo Land, where Mass is offered on a Table & The Music is often a cause of Frequent Trips to the VOMITARIUM(Waiting Times may vary from Parish to Parish).
For Fr Leonard Villa, Pastor of Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, it was a well offered Mass and Excellent Homily. Law must coincide with and be based in Natural Moral Law.
His Deacon was Fr Christopher Salvatori SAC & Subdeacon was Mr Jeffrey Colllins.
When the Procession of The BLESSED Sacrament occurred, Fr Villa went down with Aches From A Cold. Fr Salvatori took over everything. All went well.

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

Catholic Calendars Of Eastertide

26 May

Roman Rite Ordinary Form
Easter ends on Pentecost Sunday, as there is No Octave of Pentecost.
Roman Rite Extraordinary Form, also called The Tridentine Calendar, Pentecost begins with The Vigil Of Pentecost. This Ecchlesiastical Calendar is still Valid. Easter Ends on The Octave or 8th Day, so Eastertide ends this Saturday. There are Three Ember Days in Pentecost, namely Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Roman Rite Catholics are encouraged to fast from Meat on Wednesday and Friday, commemorating both Spy Wednesday and Good Friday, so that the Growth Of The Holy Spirit in one’s life can be experienced. Self Control is a Gift Of The Holy Spirit.

Byzantine Rite Julian Calendar is called The AfterFeast of Pentecost. It occurs from Monday to Wednesday. Pentecost on this Calendar is 3 Days.In The Byzantine Rite, Pentecost is also called Trinity Sunday.
Byzantine Rite Gregorian Calendar means Pentecost Sunday is the same as Roman Rite Catholics plus the Two Day AfterFeast.
For Roman Rite Traditional Catholics, they can also add the Extra Celebration to Trinity Sunday. Eastertide Celebrations would end on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2015. One Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on E7th Street in the East Village in Manhattan, St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, has an English Language Divine Liturgy at 4:00PM. Like the Tridentine Latin Mass, the Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy Of St. John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor Of The Church), you will be Awed.

Deo Gratias!
