1st Holy Communion & Bad Music

14 May

There is SOMETHING To be said for SILENCE. The Tridentine Latin Mass & the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Church), both experience this at Holy Communion. Not so in Novus Ordo Land, as “Music” of what My Most Dear Friend calls “Vomit, Barf, Puke & S–t”, warbles over the Wurlitzer Organ. It is the type of Liturgical Music, which can be considered to be Torture by The Geneva Convention & The Canadian Human Rights Commission, as well as unsuitable for use as theme music for assorted Television Series on CBC in Canada. CBC’s Resident Curmudgeon, The Redoubtable Rex Murphy, would call this Gaggle “The Utter Disonance of Trite Tripe, with the Ability to cause massive intestinal distress.”
No Doubt that Peter Mansbridge would concur.
Ever since the Seeming End of the Tridentine Era & Coming of The Novus Ordo Era, the Emphasis is on Meal instead of The Sacrifice. And the Music is written to express the Nouvelle Theologie of a Protestant Friendly Liturgy called The Mass.
Opening a 1st Holy Communion Mass with a Sure Fire Schutte Song(Hymns Are Sung TO God), “Table Of Plenty”, which would cause Fits to both Tridentine Latin Mass Attendees as well as for Catholics of The Eastern Catholic Churches, is a Horizontal Song. One is never supposed to sing the Part of The Christ unless one is a Bishop, Priest or Deacon.
As the Doctrine of The Body & Blood of Christ is The Doctrine of Holy Communion, WHY is this Song played, as it virtually infers a Pizza Party? Because, ever since the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council(V II), the emphasis became Meal Oriented, in the Name of False Ecumenism, which Protestants proclaim since the Time of Martin Luther & Ulrich Zwingli, both Apostate Catholic Priests, who were both Excommunicated for Heresy & Apostasy.
Almost 50 Years have passed since Benedictine Archabbot Rembert Weakland, with a couple of Revolutionaries, brought into being the Utterly Nauseating “Folk Mass”, strummed on Guitars, replete with Music With Absolutely No Majesty. I call it “106.7 Lite FM.” This occurred While The Tridentine Form of Mass was still in effect in October of 1967. Archabbot Weakland was later named Archbishop of Milwaukee, WI. He discovered a slew of Loopholes in the V II Modernist Document, “Sacrosanctum Concillium”, Fr Annibale Bugnini’s Blueprint for a Protestant Friendly Liturgy called The Novus Ordo Mass. A sure sign of Change would be the Playing & Singing of “Bread Songs.”
At the(Stripped Down) Offertory, there is what is called “The Presentation Of The Gifts”, which is merely transferring the Bread & Wine to The Priest, so that the Priest will offer up the Bread & Wine & later consecrate it into The Body & Blood of Christ.
The “Offertory Song” is a Folk Mass “Classic”, as it almost 50 Years Old, called “Take Our Bread.” The way that song comes out, it treats The Most Holy Sacrament of The Altar, as if it was a Campfire Sing Along about a Meal. Instead of being played on Guitars, the Organ was used.
This was at a Queens Parish in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn, not in Canada.
One wonders how the Children were trained on how to receive Holy Communion. This being the USA, it most likely was in the hand. In my time, in 1962, ONLY the Priest could even touch The Body & Blood of Christ. Hey, his hands, as he acts “In Persona Christi” are consecrated. Ours are NOT.
At Communion Time, “One Bread, One Body”, as part of “The Bread Songfest” was sung.
A “We Are” Song called “We Are Many Parts”(Totally Unknown to me, but is part of “The We Are Songfest of 2016”) was sung. It is a Song where we tell God how good we are, then ask God for “The Spirit Of Love.”

And My Most Dear Friend would have been Utterly Enraged by the Musical Selection, calling for the Starvation of The Music Director. She would have to include the “Liturgy Committee” for such Musical Selection.
It is as if The Liturgy has done a 180° Turn, with Man worshipping himself, forgetting who put Man there.
Keep this up like this and The Triune Lord will send Man something Man will NEVER Forget & it will NOT be a Pretty Sight.

Kyrie Elaison!

For “ChurchMilitant.com” Subscribers, NYC Is Not Entirely Under Cardinal Dolan

31 Jan

The Roman Latin Church is in a Diocese called Brooklyn and the counties of Kings & Queens are covered by the RC Diocese Of Brooklyn. While The Metropolitan of The New York Province is Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, he is NOT The Ordinary of The RC Diocese Of Brooklyn. The Ordinary means the Bishop who has jurisdiction in his Diocese & as Ordinary, ordains Deacons & Priests under the Jurisdiction. He is the Primary Teacher of Faith in his Diocese, just as Cardinal Dolan has jurisdiction over the Boroughs of Manhattan, Bronx & Staten Island, as well as Counties North of NYC, such as Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Orange, Ulster & Sullivan Counties.
New York City, like London & Rome, have more than One Diocese in the City. New York City is NOT exclusively MANHATTAN ISLAND. My(Brooklyn) Diocesan Bishop is the Most Reverend Nicholas Di Marzio(Who originally comes from Newark, NJ, a part of The New York-New Jersey-Connecticut Metropolitan Area).

Do NOT Blame Cardinal Dolan for everything which goes on in The 5 Boroughs. Only Three Boroughs are his Jurisdiction. The Matter of “The Star Wars Mess” is in the RC Diocese Of Brooklyn. This Farce is between Msgr Jamie Gigantiello, the Vicar For Development for The RC Diocese Of Brooklyn, as well as Pastor of St Bernard’s in Mill Basin, Brooklyn & The Most Reverend Nicholas Di Marzio.

The Reason I am saying Mess instead of Mass, is that The Mass is the Unbloody Re-presentation of The Sacrifice on Calvary, and it would hard to see this in this Elaborate Entertainment Spectacle. It reminds me of The NHL Joke of The 1970s, “I went to a Boxing Match & a Hockey Game broke out.” And one wonders if there was even a Valid Consecration in this Melee in Brooklyn. One wonders if these Parishioners even understand that The Mass is a Sacrifice. Or do they prefer “Circus Et Panem Maximus?”
For Tears began streaming at the start of Prayers at the 11:00AM Tridentine Latin Mass at St Agnes on E43rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. And it doubles my resolve to see to it that The Novus Ordo Mass be consigned to The Dustbin of History.

Vivat Christus Rex!

“The Blasphemous Sacrilege Of A Novus Ordo Mess In Brooklyn”

31 Jan

In the Parish where a Mr Jimmy Kimmel was Christened, namely St. Bernard Of Clarveux in the Mill Basin Section of Brooklyn, what I believe to be a Most Sacreligious Act is to occur on this Sunday, January 31st, 2016 @ 11:30AM EST.
The “Star Wars Mess” has arrived in Mill Basin, Brooklyn, of all Places. I might have expected this in Park Slope, Brooklyn or Jackson Heights, in Queens, home of People who may be covered under the 2014 Synod Of Bishops(Synod of Doom as Mr Ferrara puts it). But Mill Basin, next to Marine Park? WHAT?

For I was at The Tridentine Latin Mass at St. Agnes on E43rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. As Mass on Sextagesima Sunday began, as a Preparation for Lent as the Easter Cycle began last Sunday with Septuagesima Sunday, Tears streamed out of my eyes while thinking about The Blasphemous Sacrilege Of The Novus Ordo Mess In Brooklyn.

Above is the Beautiful Altar of St. Agnes on E43rd Street. Here we kneel for Holy Communion & receive The Body Of Christ on the Tongue. The Only Ministers Of Holy Communion are Priests and Deacons.
While it may not be the High Altar of Holy Innocents on W37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, this Parish was the Original Indult Tridentine Latin Mass Parish in the RC Archdiocese of New York. It is also known as the Parish where “Life Is Worth Living”, Hosted by Venerable Archbishop Fulton J Sheen, often originated from. Also, certain EWTN Programming with Fr George Rutler, originated from St. Agnes. Mum was baptised here in 1921. Noted History Professor & Remnant Writer, Dr. John Rao & The President of The Latin Mass Society Of New York, Mr David Lane, were at the Tridentine Latin Mass at St. Agnes. They were duly Notified of The Blaphemous Mess in Brooklyn.

Msgr Jamie Gigantiello, who is both the Brooklyn Diocesan Vicar For Development & Pastor of St. Bernard’s in Mill Basin, Brooklyn, reportedly will “Preside” at this “Mess.”

Like what kind of Attention are you looking for, Msgr? Louie Verrecchio’s akacatholic.com was not kindly in the least about this. Meanwhile, you are getting “Ripped a New One” by Michael Voris & his Trusty Band of “Cub Reporters”, who operate from the “Warehouse In Detroit”, aka “ChurchMilitant.com.” Just ask Cardinal Dolan just how many times Voris has “Ripped him a New One.”

In fact, Msgr, you should try something RADICAL at the next Family Mass. Like try something TRADITIONAL. The crowds will come. Large Families will come to that Mass.
It is called The Tridentine Latin Mass. And People, for once will be fed “Bread Instead Of Stones.”

Kyrie Elaison!
Vivat Christus Rex!

“The Summons” Should Be Made Returnable To 125-01 Queens Blvd

12 Oct

It is “Pure Schutte.”  In short, this song was sung at the typical Novus Ordo Mass. Praise & Supplication offered to God, is NOT the object of This Hymn.

Dan Schutte, who has been torturing Catholic Ears since the 1970s, was once a Jesuit Priest & a member of “The St. Louis Jesuits”, most noted for writing the kind of Liturgical Music, which may cause rather lengthy queues at the Vomitarium in one’s Parish(Waiting Times may vary). The Human Rights Commissioners of the European Union, have called this music a form of Torture, not to be used on Prisoners.

Yikes!

“The Silly Summer Of Ordinary Time, Ends”

22 Aug

I have to be at a Barbeque, jointly sponsored by Ancient Order Of Hibernians Queens Division 14 & Morris Park Council Knights of Columbus #566, on The Lawn of Holy Child Jesus Leonard Center in Richmond Hill, Queens, Tomorrow from 1300 Hours EDT(1800 GMT) to 1700 EDT(2200 GMT).
It means that in the Name of Both Orders, I will have to be at the 1200 EDT Mass(1700 GMT).

I wonder just how many “Hymns” I will NOT be singing.

Not By Fraternity But By Choice(& It Was Good)

12 Jul

On Some occasions of both the Knights Of Columbus and Ancient Order of Hibernians, I am requested to be at their Functions called the Inatallations of Officials, for which a Holy Sacrifice of The Mass occurs.
For I am Vice President and Recording Secretary of Ancient Order of Hibernians Queens Division 14, currently domiciled in Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, Queens, NY. For on June 28th, A Sunday called the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time, this was where the Associate Chaplain of AOH Division 14Q, who was now Administrator of Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, was offering a “Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving”, as his Ordination to The Sacred Priesthood.
For earlier, I was at St. Agnes on East 43rd Street(Archbishop Fulton J Sheen Place) at the Tridentine Latin Mass. This is my usual practice, so in heading to an Ordinary Form Mass, was a Major League Shock to my system.
Solemn Mass Of The Extraordinary Form & Solemn Mass Of The Ordinary Form, may be as different as Night From Day, as I was to learn.
So I was in Official Capacity as an AOH Officer. But I do hold a Knights Of Columbus Title called Past Grand Knight(PGK).
The Mass began with the Escort of The 4th Degree Honor Guard of The Knights Of Columbus, which as a PGK of Msgr Sherman Council 5103 in East Glendale, I can identify with, especially since My Mother Fraternity is the Knights Of Columbus.
But, unlike the Tridentine Latin Mass, a Solemn Mass Of The Ordinary Form may involve Local Customs, in WHAT is called “Inculturation”, which turns me off Big Time.
So today on a Most Uncomfortable Day, as I was about to head to St. Agnes, that when I arrived at Union Turnpike and Queens Boulevard, I changed my mind & decided to take in Mass at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills at Ascan Avenue and Queens Boulevard.

In the Gospel According To St. Mark, Jesus summoned the 12 Apostles and sent them out in Pairs wearing Sandals, for the purpose of Preaching The Gospel and Expelling Demons and anointing those who were sick, healing the people.
Jesus told the Twelve that whoever does NOT welcome them, to go outside of that town and shake the dust from their feet.
Annointing, in this case used for curing and healing the Sick and Possessed, is the current Sacrament of Holy Unction. So, whenever the Protestants tell you That there are only two Sacraments, either they fail to read Scripture or read it in accordance with their Man Made Doctrine.

And it felt good not to travel far for The Good News and converse with people after Mass.
It has been awhile since I did that on a Sunday on Queens Boulevard.

Deo Gratias

My Apology To Mr. M.V.

10 Jul

Through a Brilliantly Crafted Two Part Miniseries called “Weapons Of MASS Destruction”, a Title which speaks Volumes of WHAT has occurred inside of The Roman/Latin Church, Liturgically, in the Hands of various Modernists, at least One of Whom was a Secular Humanist, who most likely, had no Supernatural Faith Left, preferring Form over Substance. Let’s just say that Vincentian Father Annibale Bugnini, who “Crafted” what is The “Ordinary Form of Mass”, had a certain “Lodge Room Format”, in mind at creating “The Mass Of MAN.”

It is believed that Fr Bugnini, a Reputed Freemason of Liberal Ideas, was into Naturalism, as taught in The Lodge Room. He imagined the Priesthood as one who presides over a Meeting, as if he was a Democratically Elected “Worshipful Master”, with Senior and Junior Deacons to his Right and Left. No longer would “The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass” centre on the actions of The Priest, in the Role of “Alter Christus”, offering the Sacrifice to God The Father, but, rather, to appeal to Rationalist Thought People called Protestants, who preach not of Sacrifice but of a Memorial Meal.

For “Memorial Meal” is dedicated to MAN and NOT GOD. And THIS is Protestant Rationalism and NOT in the Least Bit Catholic.Oddly enough, the Tridentine Form of The Mass, was vernacularized to lead the Faithful down the Primrose Path to Potential Apostasy from the Catholic Faith.

But I realize that the Transformation of Bread and Wine into The Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ still occurs in this Mass. Unfortunately, the Current Catechisis for The Young is still horrendous. So if one can get a copy of The Baltimore Catechism, please do so for so many treasures of The Faith can be learned there.

“Weapons Of MASS Destruction” is Brilliantly done.

Deo Gratias
Vivat Jesus
