Kneeling For Communion A Mano-A NOvelty

17 May

NO is shorthand for Novus Ordo, as in the so called Ordinary Form of The Mass of The Roman/Latin Rite. The Letters “NO” are the 1st two letters of the word “Novelty.” So called “Inculturation” is a form of Novelty.
In a place where I would go for The Tridentine Latin Mass, St. Agnes on East 43rd Street in Manhattan, I went to the 5:15PM Novus Ordo Mass, where the Propers & Prayers were sung.
At Holy Communion, a number of people are known for heading to the Altar Rail to kneel to receive Holy Communion.
I knelt for Holy Communion & received on the Tongue. But I also noticed something rather weird.
This I noticed as a Novelty. It was kneeling for Holy Communion & still receiving Christ in the Hand. People who stand usually do this, but while kneeling at the Altar Rail?
From here on in at St. Agnes, it will be Tridentine Latin Mass only. I don’t want Novelty at the Communion Rail.

Kyrie Elaison!

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.

image

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 Tridentine Latin Mass Of 1962 & The Novus Ordo Mass Of 1970

24 Sep

It was in The Roman Missal of 1962, when certain changes were made. One was when, before the Confiteor of The Priest, the “Judica Me Deus”(Judge Me O God), was eliminated.
There was still the Confiteor of both Priest & then the Servers and Parishioners. The Priest gave absolution. In his Confiteor, he asked his Servers for Forgiveness.
But, in both recitations “Et Tibi Pater” & “Et Te Pater” were replaced by “Et Vos Fratres”(And You Brethren), while Et Te Pater & Et Tibi Pater, referred to The Priest, acting “In Persona Christi”, offering Sacrifice To The Heavenly Father, as “Alter Christus”(Another Christ).
In The Roman Canon, St. Joseph was added to The Canon of Saints.
The Confiteor before Holy Communion was eliminated.
In 1964, people were now to acknowledge the Body of Christ by responding with Amen, after the Priest says “Corpus Christi.” Prior to this, when one received Holy Communion, the Priest recited in Latin “May The Body Of Christ Be Given To You For Life Everlasting Amen”, and the Priest Made the Sign of The Cross with the Consecrated Host. There was no actual response from the Communicant. A Gold Plated Paten was placed under the chin of one receiving Holy Communion by the Altar Server.
Now, when the Priest was to receive Holy Communion, he prayed “Domine Non Sum Dignus”(O Lord I Am NOT Worthy)3 Times & a bell was rung by an Altar Server after each praying. Prior to Holy Communion, the Communicants prayed the “Domine Non Sum Dignus”, 3 Times.
The Kyrie Elaison(Lord Have Mercy) had 5 Recitations by The Priest & 4 by the Servers and Parishioners(3 Kyrie Elaison, 3 Christe Elaison, 3 Kyrie Elaison).

Other Additions to the 1962 Roman Missal included the “Prayers Of The Faithful”, a variation of the Litanies of The Byzantine Rite, for Sundays & Holy Days of Obligation & the OPTIONAL Sign of Peace. This was added for Mass Of The Tridentine Form starting on Sunday, November 29th, 1964, the 1st Sunday of Advent.

In regards to The Prayer of The Faithful, I will say it this way-The Ukrainian Greek Catholics at the Divine Liturgies of Sts John Chrysostom & Basil The Great, are much better at this form, as The Litanies are sung A Capella & Without Musical Instruments, so forget about the Guitars common at “Folk” Masses of The Novus Ordo Mass Era.

It was in Liturgical Year 1967, around November in Brooklyn, in the Fully Vernacularized Tridentine Form of Mass, when Priests tried to sound like Beatniks & “Folk Style Treacle” Muzak came to The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. There was also the so called, in the Spirit of The False Ecumenism setting in, the Mistranslation of The Latin Phrase “Pro Multis”, into “For All Men”, instead of “For Many”, as “For All Men”, which signifies the Protestant Heresy of Universal Salvation. It was near the end of Vatican II that the 1st Permissions were given that the Utterly Bad Idea of The Portable Table Altar, for the Tridentine Form of Mass, were authorized. Only the More Progressive Parishes had this Table Altar, beginning with 1965.

“For All Men” gave rise to both the Traditionalist Catholic Movement in 1967, and, Sadly, The Sedevacantist Movement(The Teaching that there had been no Validly Elected Pope after the Death of Venerable Pope Pius XII & that from Pope John XXIII onward, there were all Antipopes seated in The See of Peter).

Also in The 1962 Missal was the Change in the Names of The Parts of The Mass. The Part called “Mass Of The Catechumens”(Those undergoing Religious Instruction), this became “Liturgy Of The Word”, as it was more “Protestant Friendly.” Then there was “Liturgy Of The Eucharist”, replacing “Mass of The Faithful.” This is only in the Latin(Roman) Rite. This was added in time for the Liturgical Year of 1965.

Oh & Another Thing:
Boys and Men ONLY as Altar Servers, was done because in much older times, servers were often ordained as Priests when the Priest retired or died.

As to the Novus Ordo Missae:
There is So Much MISSING from what is The Tridentine Latin Mass in the Novus Ordo Mass, like the Theology of The Mass.
Also, this version of the Mass incorporated Liturgical Abuses from both the US of A & Der Nederlands.

The Novus Ordo Mass incorporates the US of A Abuse called “The Presentation of The Gifts”, where two people bring up the Elements of Unleavened Bread & Wine. This was tried in Boston under Archbishop Richard Cushing. An Ad Populum Tridentine Latin Mass was done in North Dakota. Venerable Pope Pius XII ruled these practices as abuses & condemned these US Practices.
The General Intercessions Prayers of the Faithful went to be an Everyday Practice at Mass. It is based on the Litanies of the Byzantine Rite in the Divine Liturgies of Sts John Chrysostom and Basil The Great. Trust me on this one-The Eastern Catholic Churches & Eastern Orthodox Churches of Byzantine Rite, do this way better than the Roman Rite Catholic Church does. While Not an abuse, it was added to keep something Catholic in the Novus Missae.
The Collective Confiteor, without the Intercessions of Sts Michael The Archangel, John The Baptist, Peter & Paul & only one Intercession of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin. In the Confiteor of the Tridentine Latin Mass, which the Priest says 1st, then the Congregation’s Confiteor, each Saint mentioned twice, ended up as 1 Mention of the Blessed Virgin May & two Intercessions of “The Brethren.” This Collective Confiteor is one of a number of Penitential Options & has for its basis, The Lutheran Confiteor and the Anglican Confiteor, but neither mentions the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Sign of Peace(Or The Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs Wave, seen every day of the week), is said to have come from the Antiochean Rite Maronite Catholic Church. Only The Servers come out from the Sanctuary & shake the hand of the 1st One in the Pew & it is transmitted down the length of the Pew. It was added to the 1962 Missal in 1964. It is only an option. It is a Distraction from The Mass. It made the cut in the Novus Ordo Mass.

Sancte Communion A Mano(In The Hand):
This Grave Abuse came into being during the Protestant Heresy called “The Reformation”, when it was simply a Huge Schism. Martin Bucer, an Apostate Priest of The Order of Preachers of St. Dominic, lost his belief in the Corporeal & Substantial Real Presense of Christ &, in acting as Advisor to Archbishop of Canterbury, The Heretic Thomas Cranmer, introduced Communion A Mano(In The Hand), to teach those of The Church Of England, that no such Real Presence exists. It was 1st practiced before Vatican II ended in Der Nederlands, to protest that The Catholic Church did not change her teachings on Contraception. From this country came the Infamous “Dutch Catechism”, deemed to teach Heresy.
Memoriale Domini, an Encyclical by Blessed Paul VI, addressed Holy Communion In The Hand.

In Canada, this practice arrived in Early 1970, being permitted by meeting the conditions of Memoriale Domini, which means that the Abuse was widespread & that the Conference Of Catholic Bishops in that Nation petitioned The Holy See, after a 2/3 Majority of Bishops By Secret Ballot, concurred.

From 1975 through 1977, the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, then called the NCCB, was headed by The Archbishop of Cincinnati, OH, Joseph Bernadin, who led the Liberal & Homosexual Wings of The Roman Latin Church. At all three National Meetings of this August Body(Or Hapless Bench) of Bishops in 1975-1977, the motion to promulgate Holy Communion In The Hand fell short of the 2/3 Super Majority. But, Bernadin disobeyed the Papal Edict, and added voters via Telephone and also those Who were Emeriti to the figures, thus having this passed. The Indult was passed but is actually Null and Void, due to the Circumstances on How Archbishop Bernadin effected this practice, which was NEVER widespread in the USA. In short, the Practice in the United States Of America, was born of a Lie, thus NEVER VALID, EVER.

Standing to receive Holy Communion In The Roman Latin Rite:
Never Mind that it is a Byzantine Rite Practice, not done well by The Roman Latin Church, that the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops decided to add a Byzantine Rite Practice of Bowing to add a semblance of Eucharistic Piety to receiving Holy Communion, mostly in the Hand. I know of a few Ukrainian Greek Catholics who would beg to differ in regards to Roman Rite Catholics who receive Holy Communion In The Hand. This is SO Novus Ordo.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion:
Originally meant to bring Holy Communion To The Sick Shut In Catholics in their homes and Nursing Facilities, they have become an Armada at Holy Communion Time, supposedly because the Priest and Deacon Communion Lines are too long. These People did not receive Holy Orders. Plus in the Artificially Contrived Priest Shortage thanks to Heterodox Bishops and Priests, suddenly Lay People are NEEDED to give out Holy Communion at Mass.
Holy Communion Under Both Species:
The Eastern Churches, both Catholic & Eastern Orthodox, have Holy Communion via Intinction and the Priest, Bishop or Deacon, distribute the Body & Blood of Christ via Gold Plated Holy Communion Spoon.
There is none of The Two Station Reception of The Sacrament which occurs only in the Roman Rite Novus Ordo Mass, with an Extraordinary Minister handling the Cup where the Precious Blood of Christ comes from.
Sadly, the Novus Ordo Mass is a place where one can lose one’s Sensus Catholicus, and one’s Faith & one’s Belief in The Most Sublime Sacrament of The Altar.

It is Time To End The Novus Ordo Mass.

“The Parade Of The Hands Out”

24 Aug

It was Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 at the 10:30 AM Mass at a Roman Catholic Parish in Queens, in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn. It was time for the Reception of Holy Communion.

When things were Sacred & Proper, AMNO(Ante Missa Novus Ordo), or Before The New Mass, one knelt at a Communion Rail and received Corpus Christi(The Body of Christ) on one’s tongue in the Roman Rite, also called the Latin Rite.

As people lined up to receive Holy Communion, their hands were jutted foreward. There was the Bow before receiving Holy Communion. It was almost as if this was a Snack Line. Ever Since Communion A Mano(In The Hand) was introduced in the United States through the Connivance of Archbishop Joseph Bernadin of Cincinnati, OH, fixing a Ballot of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops as if he was Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago, IL, an Archdiocese which he received the Red Biretta as a Prince of The Catholic Church. Sadly, the Most Blessed Sacrament of The Altar, was being taught to Catholic School and Confraternity Classes as a “Group Meal.”
But, in the effort to make Protestants a group of “Happy Campers”, the Missa Novus Ordo was NOT presented as a Sacrifice, but as an Assembly with Priest as Presider over a Sacred Meeting.

So at yesterday’s Mass, where the Pastor was to head to a new assignment in another state, I viewed perhaps the largest procession of Hands Out ever seen by me. There were people who were in their 80s seen receiving Sancte Communion A Mano. This was TOTALLY Impossible 50 Years ago.

In the Priest’s Homily, he spoke of The “Go With The Flow” Mentality. But there were a few that refused to go with that flow and received Sancte Communion A Lingua(On The Tongue).

For me, IT IS THE ONLY WAY To Do It, along with a few others.

Besides, We Aren’t PRIESTS.

Kyrie Elaison!

“Pagan Gaia Goes to Mass (Vatican II & the New World Order)” on YouTube

6 Aug

Post Vatican II shows The Fruits of Vatican Council II and The Fruits are BAD Fruits.

Michael Matt shows this so eloquently.

WHY should the SSPX sign to agree with Vatican Council II? I say “No Way.”

And for that “Justin Bieber At Middle Age Who Works In That Warehouse Of Toys and Gadgets In Detroit”, You have such UNMITIGATED CHUTZPAH, to declare the SSPX IN SCHISM? WHY? Because they won’t go along with the Novelties of Vatican Council II?

Neo Catholic! The SSPX IS MORE CATHOLIC THAN YOU ARE.
AND WHO ARE THOSE 5 Cardinals who told you that the SSPX are in Schism?

A “Hymn To Gaia”, a Pagan Demon? Who was “Spiking The Molson’s Beer in Toronto, Eh?” I would doubt it was Rex Murphy.

Do Watch this. It is a well made Video.

Kyrie Elaison
