“Happy Thanksgiving”(USA, Eh)

27 Nov

I look at this day to be Grateful, with a Roof over my head. The Weather has been grey, cold and wet.
I am considering heading to Holy Innocents R C Church in Manhattan for a Tridentine Latin Mass at 6PM tomorrow evening, close to the World Famous Macy’s, as it is snowing, with the Weather letting up, later this afternoon.

But from the time in the 1960s in My Native Brooklyn,NY to Now, the Secular Holiday with Religious Overtones has now become, not a day of Rest and Celebration, but an Extra Day of SHOPPING. For US Thanksgiving is NOW a Snack Period for “The 48 Hours of Black Friday”, for Yanks of All Stripes, all about Materialism, NOT of The Triune Godhead, but of SELF.

It was 50 Years Ago, when the 1st Changes in The Mass took place.(Only The Offertory and Consecration were offered in Latin). English became the primary Language of The Roman Catholic Mass. The Beautiful Prayers of The Foot of The Altar were said. People and Priest faced Liturgical East(Not Staring at a Wall or turning one’s back on the Faithful).

But 45 Years Ago, a Fundamental Change occurred when a Portable Altar was erected in front the Main Altar and the Mass became as if a Lecture. People were distracted away from The Triune Godhead towards SELF. The Language is only the Vulgar Tongue. The sense of Mystery is Missing.

So, I am Thanking the Triune Godhead for Mystery and Memories as well as Life. For Without The Triune Godhead, all is naught. Prayers will be offered for Family, Past and Present and for Those Most Special Friends who aided me in the 2013 Rough Part of Life’s Journey.

Deo Gratias!

M, Eh!

First Thursday At Holy Innocents 6PM Latin Mass

4 Oct

I was at Last Night’s Missa Cantata(A Sung Tridentine Latin Mass)@ Holy Innocents R C Church on W37th Street in Manhattan. It was the Feast of The Holy Angels, which means Guardian Angels.

But at Holy Innocents, it was also 1st Thursday, which is a night dedicated to Prayers for The Priesthood. And Father spoke of Priests and Angels. The Priest is cloaked in Holy Orders and has the Divinely Given Authority to forgive Sins in Christ’s Name, as well as to offer the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass. Angels cannot forgive Sins, but Priests can, In Persona Christi, as Alter Christus. Hence, as Father put it so elegantly, Priests are Higher than Angels, though Human.

Perhaps, I hope that during one of His Holiness’ Off The Cuff Comments, when he said that men are higher than Angels, that Pope Francis I means Priests. The Pope in these Off The Cuff Comments, could be teaching error instead of Truth.

It reminds me of the time when I was 11, I was listening to All News WINS 1010 in Brooklyn. I know about W. E. B. Du Bois(Pronounced Do Bwah), but the WINS Reporter, I believe he was Stan Brooks(+), had pronounced the name as “Do Boys”, was reporting on a Political Club called The W. E. B. Du Bois Club in Harlem, which had affiliated with the Communist Party USA. I blurted out to my parents that “The Boys Club joined the Communist Party.” It was my “Bergoglian Moment.” And all this because the name of W. E. B. Du Bois, was spoken in what amounted to a mispronounced name on a News Broadcast, with me listening and jumping to conclusions.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Kyrie Elaison!

The Persecution Of Faithful From Within

23 Jul

The Franciscan Friars and Sisters of The Immaculate are Faithful to the Magisterium of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, so WHY, a Growing Religious Order such as this, being subjected to profuse persecution of Vatican Modernistas?

Did they run afoul of the Congregation For The Preservation Of Musical and Liturgical Novelty? Did they fail to sing “Table Of Plenty” or “All Are Welcome” at the beginning of Mass?

If you said “Yes” to either Song(Hymns are sung To God), it is because these are Orders who believe in the Praying of The Latin Mass of St. John XXIII, where the above two songs are NEVER Sung. The Monastic Orders in the Eastern Catholic Churches would Never sing Songs like what is mentioned above.

Meanwhile, at the Vatican, the Leadership Conference For Women Religious(LCWR), who represent 80% of all remaining Nuns in the USA, where the growth figures are in both the numbers of deaths and Apostasies, are given a light tap on the wrist and sent home to supper. You know who these ladies are. They have been known to ride cross country on buses to protest assorted crap. Meanwhile the Convents are empty, from participating in Psychological Therapies designed to cause these women to lose their vocations in Consecrated Life.

It is interesting to note that in a statement by Pope Francis I, that he could understand why older people(Like Blue Haired Biddies), prefer the Traditional Latin Mass, but cannot understand why the Young People would embrace this Liturgy.
Does this Pope embrace GLASNOST? Glasnost is a Russian Noun meaning “Publicity Stunt.” Kissing the Hand of a Known Gay Activist Priest is One Stunt. On Television, appearing before a Priest outside of a Confessional for Confession, was a little bit stranger than normal for a Penitent.

The Motu Proprio allowing for the Offering of The Extraordinary Form of the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, also called the Tridentine Latin Mass of St. John XXIII, without a Bishop’s Permission, during the Reign of Pope Benedict XVI, also called “The Benedictine Respite”, freed up this Treasure from the Hands of Reluctant Bishops, who FEAR a Demand for Sacred Tradition, and who prefer Novelty, such as Altar Girls, False Ecumenism and Novelty Liturgies, such as ” Clown Masses”(Sanctus Horn, Anyone).
My Most Dear Friend, She who shared a book with me about “Communion In The Hand” from an Argentinian Bishop who voted against it, in fact the ONLY Argentinian Bishop who voted against it(Clue is that he is not the Son of an Italian Immigrant), finds that the Current Occupant of The Chair of St. Peter is NOT the Humble Man he is being made out to be. He is LOVED too much by The World(Like Jane Fonda).

As for the Young People embracing the Tridentine Latin Mass of St. John XXIII, these are People who despise Novelty in Worship, such as Liturgical Dancers, Clowns, Bishops who wear Green Bay Packers Cheeseheads Gear(Yes, then Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Michael Dolan did perform that stunt at a Mass), among other Novelties, including “Do I Not Love Me” Liturgical Music. The Young Ones are also attending other Fully Catholic Traditional Liturgies, such as the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. St. John Chrysostom, no Shrinking Violet He, once in reaction to Bishops and The Pope, Honorarius I, who fell in with the Arian Heresy, coined the phrase “The Road to Hell is paved with the Skulls of Bishops.”

And it is the Orthodox Young People who helped the Franciscan Friars and Sisters of The Immaculate to grow. Yet, Pope Francis is catering to Dissidents who are supposedly in this order. Why is an Order, dedicated to Traditional Catholic Practice, under Persecution?

Is it possible that this is a Wakeup Call from Heaven?

Kyrie Elaison!

The RCMP-Nothing Romantic

7 Jun

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, “Mounties”as they are called, do not merely travel around on Horseback, looking to capture the Mustachioed Snidely Whiplash. They are not “Dudley Do Right.”
For within the last 48 Hours, Three R C M P Officers in the City of Moncton, NB, in The Maritime Provinces, were gunned down by someone called Justin Bourque, who planned his hideous attack quite well, save for getting Caught, himself.
For the R C M P, function as anything from C I A, to F B I to Provincial and/or Local Constabulary. The Life of One who is a Member of The Service, is often Lonely and Fraught with Danger.
The R C M P Motto is “We Always Get Our Man.”
Too Sad that Three died getting their man.

Kyrie Elaison!

Kathy Dunderdale resigned as Provincial Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador. Rex Murphy, he a Native Newfoundlander, comments on this situation, rather Brilliantly.

On Saturday, January 22nd, 1973, The Unfathomable Occurred In Washington, DC

22 Jan

Eight Days Before, I had just turned 18 Years Old. I finally was of age where I could vote in Elections. I was eligible to sign up for Selective Service. In those days, one could legally enjoy a beer or a cigar.

Sadly, New York & California had Liberalized Abortion Statutes. These States set the tone for What was to come.

I was with my folks as they had gone shopping. It was an overcast day in The 5 Boroughs of New York City.

It was on WCBS Newsradio 880, on Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood, Queens, a Predominantly German & Italian Enclave,  when a bit after 2:00PM, EST, when I 1st Heard about Roe Versus Wade & the Decision by the SCOTUS (US Supreme Court).

The Question I ask is:

How do the 13th & 14th US Constitutional Amendments suddenly come into play, when both are in regards to that Last Great Legal & Moral Problem called Slavery?

Considering that Justice William O. Douglas, an Activist Free Interpreter of What was according to his Masonic Philosophy and William Brennan, who was Catholic(I am not sure if he was practicing), both are noted for interpretations which are questionable.

There is Mens Rea (Legal Intent). The 13th & 14th Amendments dealt with Equal Protection of the Law, for the Newly Emancipated Black Slaves.

But for a Man and Woman to engage in Procreative Activities, which means having Sexual Intercourse, how is the potential birthing mother suddenly treated as if a Slave with no rights?

Mens Rea was not followed here. This was a matter dealing with Slavery. 

Back in 1821, the State of Connecticut passed the 1st Liberalised Legal Abortion Law. The State was one of The 13 States. As one was to find out in 1973, there were 21 States with Liberalised Abortion Laws.

The Two Dissenting US Supreme Court Justices are Byron White & William Rehnquist(Later Chief Justice of this Court). Both questioned the use of the 13th & 14th Amendments.

It will take a Constitutional Amendment to clear this up, which will restore, both the Rights of The Individual States to regulate(& Preferably Repeal this Crime Against Humanity) these activities. It may take awhile, but it will be worth it.

The USA has never been a Catholic Country. This would never have been tolerated in a Truly Catholic Country. All Protestant Denominations once totally opposed Contraception. Then, in The Lambeth Conference of The Church of England, Contraception was given the Go Ahead(1930). All other Protestant Communities followed suit.

“The Pill” followed. The Sexual Revolution followed that. Add Abortion to the mix & it is the Grave Moral Mess we are in Today. Catholic Catechisis of The Present Day doesn’t talk about this.

Utter Shame!

Blessings to those who made it to Washington DC today. Even Snow cannot foil prayers for the End of This “Crime Against Humanity.”
