Freedom As Opposed To Liberty Both Civil & Faith

9 Jul

I remember some years ago in 1991, when members of the NYC Department Of Consumer Affairs Enforcement Service, received Official Training as Peace Officers in New York State, leading to certification. I was amongst that group and was #1 in the Class.

This Certification gave People The FREEDOM to exercise actual authority to a Just Conclusion. But these People were into Liberty, doing whatever one wants, leading not to a Just Conclusion, but to repeated error, in the Pretense of being Productive, though their Work only produced #s on a Spreadsheet, the idea was for Continouous Pretense that Something was being accomplished in the Pretense of Accomplishing the Goal of Extensive Statistical Lies. What they feared in all their belief in Liberty, is being exposed for being such Frauds. In short, they FEARED being exposed as Thieves who feed at the Public Trough.
For as such Sworn Peace Officer in the City of New York, in the County of New York, I had been on a Counterfeit Goods Investigation Detail. The Sales of Counterfeit Goods such as Prada Milan Handbags made in someone’s Wine Cellar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, constitutes anywhere from A Class A Misdemeanor to a Class D Felony in New York State for the Sale of these Items in Violation of Copywrite Laws. I was engaged in two Lawfully Constituted Arrests as an Arresting Officer in 1995. This was done according to the Law itself.
Sadly, the Custom of People who believe in Groupthink without questioning the Validity of what is being deliberately misinterpreted, is to treat those who believe and practice The Freedom to do what one NEEDS to do, with Utter Contempt, which includes depriving that person of ways of making a decent living, often through the use of forced Psychoanalysis or through the Protecting of their False Doctrine of a Law by the Groupthink and Group Practice of The Glorification of Statistics, minus the Negative Results. This Group Practice takes Liberties with Laws for the Purpose of Fraudulent Self Profit of Members of The Cooperative, who band together to prevent a person from exercising God Given Freedom, to protect Selfish Motives.

For I remember such a member of THAT Cooperative, who told me that in the interest of said League of Liberty Taking, that I should have Falsified an Official Document in the name of that League of Liberty in order to protect them from potential recriminations for their continouous taking of Liberties with the Law so that no one would notice their peculiar disregard of Law. He called it “The Team Way.” I walked away from this Liberty Lover, who like the Rest of the Cooperative of Assorted N’er Do Wells, despise anyone who dares to disagree with their practice of Rationalist Thought, that “Everybody Does This.” For Liberty En Masse is NOTHING More Than TYRRANY. I experienced that TYRRANY of those who take Liberty with the Law, including having been assaulted by Three Thugs, all related to each other, with one as Ringleader, who was placed under Arrest(Or So I Thought), only for a Boss to unlock the Handcuffs, doing so on behalf of his colleagues who also continue to believe not in Truth, but in Protection of False Practice as The Group Sees Fit. As one who believes in what is proper, being betrayed by one who believes in Tyrrany By Liberty, after my being subjected to Violence and not being backed up for performance of a Lawful Duty, it is the loneliest feeling in the world, so that someone would betray someone for approval by those who take Liberty with the Law. The Message of this Cowardly N’er Do Well, who was being Blackmailed for a Private Sexual Action, committed in Agency Restrooms on a Number of Occasions, so that assorted people with questions about their own morality, will, in the Name of Liberty, Coerce People to their own questionable train of thought.
And because I had the Unmitigated Gall to question this Edition of the 1919 Chicago White Sox, who took Liberties with the 1919 World Series by throwing the Series in their Selfishness, I was told to forget about The Freedom to do what has to be done and exchange it for the Liberty Of The Will Of The N’er Do Well Group.
I still chose Freedom & My Conscience is Clear.

Fr Annibale Bugnini took Liberty with WHAT was given to him by the Tradition of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. He was enslaved by this Taking of Liberty in his own pride. And he has his Disciples Today. The “Mass Of MAN”, also called Novelty, killed much of The Catholic Faith in the Roman/Latin Rite.

Time to do away with the “Mass Of MAN” and return to Tradition of The Mass of Sacrifice which truly made Saints.

Kyrie Elaison

An Extraordinary Minister Of Holy Communion’s “Fear Of One’s Tongue”

26 Jun

It was at a 1210 Mass in a rather large Roman Rite Catholic Church in a rather “Manhattan Wannabe” section of the Borough of Queens in the RC Diocese Of Brooklyn, where an Extraordinary Minister Of Holy Communion, perhaps not used to doing more than placing The Body Of Christ in one’s hand, as if one is handing out Halloween Candy or Hor d’oeuvres at a party, stands in abject fear of putting Christ’s Body on One’s Tongue.
I have received the Body Of Christ Twice from her.
She has twice put the Body Of Christ in the Side of my mouth.

I am not going to receive The Body Of Christ in my hand. I am NOT a Priest, nor Deacon.

From Freedom To Liberty, The Novus Ordo Mass, Part Two

1 May

Liberty is “The God That Failed”, which is a book by a Catholic Barrister named Christopher A. Ferrara, JD. And in The Modernist Liturgy called The Novus Ordo Mass, where the alleged big key is Participation, this Liberty is driving people away.

Renewal? What Flavor of Hashish is being smoked here?
New Springtime? My Arse! I have seen the crowds disappearing.

I am privileged to have a Most Dear Friend. We often have short but intense, Faith Filled Catholic Conversations. But, it was a question which she asked which disturbs her. It disturbs me, ever since the Altar of God became a Table and the Priest stopped facing Liturgical East. Her question is as follows:
“Why Does The Priest Have His Back Turned Away From God?”
I am both Glad & Sad that this question is being asked. It is about time that it is asked. She does read “The Remnant” & watches “The Vortex”, hosted by Gary M. Voris(Gary is his 1st Name, with Michael being his Middle Name, so I will be calling Mr Voris by his 1st Name from Now On). I AM Sad that this question has to come up, because so few Roman/Latin Catholics know so little about the Faith.

The one thing that Vatican II will be known for is the promoting of False Ecumenism, which is “Can’t We All Get Along.” It is also known as “The Era of Dialogue & Holiday Parties.”
For you see, Ecumenical is taken from a Greek Word meaning Home(Oike). So the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council was supposed to be about the Home Church, One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. One thing which was accomplished was that the Eastern Catholic Churches were told to return to their own Customs & Practices. That is what the Eastern Catholic Churches began to do.
A certain # of USA Bishops during the Council, all from the Roman/Latin Rite, appealed to Pope Paul VI to have the Eastern Catholic Churches closed in North America, and have the Eastern Catholics worship in the Roman/Latin Rite. They were turned down.

Name Of Liturgy:
Missa Paulo VI, also called The Missa Novus Ordo.
Author-Fr Annibale Bugnini, a Vincentian Order Priest, elevated to Rank of Archbishop by Papam Paulo VI
First Major Critics are Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, Cardinal Bacci & John Carmel Cardinal Heenan.
Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci write a Critique of The Normative Mass, which is a Novelty all by itself. It is said to be in whole and In part, “A Striking Departure from the Theology of The Mass…which would please the most Modernist Protestant.” This is The Letter by Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci called “The Ottaviani Intervention.” It is in this letter that the words “Novus Ordo Missa” are spoken.
John Carmel Cardinal Heenan, Archbishop of The See of Westminster(London North of The River Thames) made This observation when witnessing the 1st Offering of This Mass in that during the Tridentine Mass, one sees Men, Women & Children. But with this New Mass, it will be mostly Women & Children, with The Men disappearing. That prediction proved to be True. Pretty Soon, the Novus Ordo Mass would have all the Popularity of the 1979 Oakland Athletics at The Oakland Coliseum, as Attendance & # of Masses begin to drop. Whereas in one Brooklyn Parish on the Queens Border would have 10 Masses on Sunday, by 1979, it would be 5 Masses. That Parish today has only 4 Masses which are Sunday Masses & rather poorly attended(Not unlike the 1979 NY Mets in a Comparable Sense. I often find Major League Baseball References to be useful).

The Tridentine Latin Mass & The Divine Liturgies of Saints John Chrysostom & Basil The Great, have withstood The Test of Time in The One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church. All Three Great Liturgies are about Sacrifice. All Three have inspired Symphonies. Sergei Rachmaninoff even composed a “Divine Liturgy Of St. John Chrysostom Symphony.

The Premiere of what is today’s Roman Rite Catholic Mass, occurred in the R C Diocese of Brooklyn on Sunday, November 30th, 1969, a little bit over 45 Years Ago. Supposedly, certain Traditions were restored.
About 450 Years before this Mass, the Lutherans followed by The Anglicans, were offering The Prototype of this Liturgy, complete with their Ministers offering their Liturgies Facing NOT God but The Congregation in an Assembly(NOT Unlike PS 171K in Brooklyn, where I was in Kindergarten, when people went to the Assembly Hall for certain meetings or performances).

The Novus Ordo Mass is really a “Bare Bones” Mass. There are no “Prayers At The Foot Of The Altar” because Priests do NOT ascend to a High Altar. Rather, they stop at a Freestanding Table type of Altar.
There is an opening line prayer which after the Sign of The Cross is “The Grace & Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Love of God The Father & The Unity of The Holy Spirit be With You All”, would be followed by “And Also With You”, which was not an actual translation of “Et Cum Spiritu Tuo “(And With Your Spirit).

“And Also With You”, which was a “Translation” is meant to appeal to those Liturgical Protestants such as Evangelical Lutherans & Broad Church Episcopalians as well as Methodists & Presbyterians. It also signifies that the Priest is merely a Delegate of The Assembly, which is Protestant Practice. Protestants deny The Sacrificial Priesthood.

But the Opening to The Mass is NOT a Roman Rite Opening:
“The Grace & Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Love of God The Father & the Fellowship of The Holy Spirit, Be With All of You.”
This is actually from the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom(Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of The Church, Ordinary Form Calendar on September 14th & Tridentine Calendar on January 27th), and it is the Opening to the Eucharistic Anaphora of St. John Chrysostom & Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, (Bishop, Martyr, Confessor, Doctor of The Church, Feast offered in January).
In the Tridentine Mass, The Priest and Servers at the Foot of the High Altar, had a way different opening. It will be In English, as it was in 1965, so you can follow along:
After The Sign of The Cross, the Priest recited “I Will Go To The Altar of God.” The Servers recited “To God Who Gives Joy To My Youth.” The Priest then recited “Our Help Is In The Name Of The Lord”, to Which the Servers replied “Who Made HEAVEN & Earth.”

“Since When Did Mass Become Like A Chinese Restaurant?”(Penitential Rites A, B & C)
To those of you who are not aware of the Chaos of Sunday, November 30th in 1969, it was the 1st Sunday of Advent. Hence, the Gloria was omitted.
I sat on the Elderts Lane Side of St. Sylvester’s Roman Catholic Church in City Line, Brooklyn, as was my custom in the 1960s. I always had a side view of The Mass, hence I could see what the Priest was doing on the High Altar. But, on This Day & Date, the Priest & Servers were NOT in their usual positions, as The Mass went from Ad Orientem(Facing Towards Liturgical Jerusalem) to Versus Populum(Facing Everyone on The Center Aisle(Mc Kinley Avenue Side).
There are Three Penitential Options. On this Particular Sunday, it was the New Confiteor. Upon reviewing the current Confiteor, it was a variation of The Confiteor as prayed by the Lutherans. For this Confiteor, Blessed Mary Ever Virgin was said only Once. The names of other Intercessors, namely Saints Michael The Archangel, John The Baptist and Peter & Paul. Not only that, it wasn’t even translated properly, as I discovered on the Last Night of 2010 @ Our Lady of Mercy on Kessel Street in Forest Hills, Queens. The “Mea Culpa” had not even been translated.
The Addition of “Vos Fratres” or Brethren was actually a holdover from the Tridentine Latin Mass of The Roman Missal of 1962. But, in the interest of early Political Correctness, it became “Brothers & Sisters.”
The Kyrie was Shortened into “2, 2, 2” format. “Lord Have Mercy” was said Twice by The Priest & Twice by The Congregation. “Christ Have Mercy” was said Once by The Priest & Once by The Congregation.
The Confiteor was now a Collective Prayer. In the case of Penitential Rites B & C, The Kyrie is the base prayer.
The Introit was said.
The Format for The Readings had also changed from Introit, Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia or Tract & Gospel & Homily.
It was changed to a Three Year Cycle of Readings on Sundays & a Two Year Cycle during Weekdays.
The New Format of Readings goes as follows:
Old Testament, Responsorial Psalm, New Testament, Alleluia or Tract & then the Gospel and Homily.
This form, eliminated in the 6th Century by Pope St. Gregory The Great, was replaced by Epistle, Gradual, Alleluia or Tract, Gospel and Homily. In the older form of the Current Form, there was a Responsorial Psalm after the Epistle.
The Current Form of The Readings was eliminated from Roman/Latin Usage in the 6th Century, returned to usage with Martin Luther in the 16th Century(As well as with Thomas Cranmer), and returned to usage on Sunday, November 30th, 1969. It had been out of Roman Catholic Usage for almost 1400 Years.

This Format was suggested by Anglican “Bishop” Moremann. As Pope Leo XIII once declared Anglican Holy Orders to be Null & Void, this man is a Layman wearing a Halloween Costume(Something Gary M. Voris accuses the SSPX of being & doing).

The New Lay Ministry of Lector was promulgated for the Novus Ordo Mass. This person would read everything but The Gospel, which is charged to The Bishop, Priest and Deacon. It is said to be an old custom, but NOT in the Roman/Latin Rite. The Lector is of Byzantine Origin. The Lector usually sits in The 1st Pew, with a Light & Microphone and reads the Epistle. In most cases he or she is the Cantor. And unlike his or her Roman/Latin Rite Counterparts, he/she faces Liturgical East.

“This Is An Offertory? What?”
Consider that the Cunning, Scheming & Conniving Secular Humanist, Vincentian Father Annibale Bugnini, wanted to eliminate practically all Roman/Latin Rite References to The Mass, The Offertory was chopped to pieces.

The Tridentine Offertory was prayed by The Priest for the Expiation of His Sins and for The Faithful, both Living and Dead, with the Epiclesis being prayed For The Holy Spirit to come upon the Offerings, in anticipation of The Sacrifice. The Lavabo Prayer(Washing of Priest’s Hands) is of Byzantine Origin, used in The Preparation of The Gifts, before the Public Portion of The Divine Liturgies.
But, in order to make Modernist Mainline Protestants feel at Home, the Offertory was severely abridged. And the Source of the Format of The New Offertory is a set of Books called The Talmud, a set of Jewish Traditions, a number of which border on Immoral. Jesus and Mary are treated in a Blasphemous Manner in The Talmud.
A Prayer used in The Passover Seder, a Simple Table Blessing, is used for the Offertory. The Prayers of Expiation were removed. For Protestants, Prayers for The Dead are not their forte, as for many of them, Purgatory does not exist.

At the Orate Fratres(Pray, Brethren), in the days of Horrible Translations as if to make the Priest out to be nothing more than a group therapy leader, said In English, “Pray that Our Sacrifice”, which implied that the Congregation and Priest had the same power from God, this was corrected in the 2011 Correct Translation.

The Eucharistic Canon:
In The Tridentine Form, ONLY The Roman Canon existed. And there were The Prefacing Prayers.
What was strange for the “Translation” of “Dignum Et Justum Est”, normally reading “It Is Right & Just”, came a Variation of The Byzantine Form of the Response, which is normally translated from either the Greek or Slavonic. Bugnini was not joking when he wanted to strip The Catholic Elements out of The Mass. Thing is, he actually meant The Roman/Latin Elements. He did not hesitate to utilize Byzantine & Antiochion Elements for the New Mass.

The Sanctus was not properly translated. Sabaoth which means Hosts, became “Power & Might.”

There were initially 4 Prayers. I will stay on The Roman Canon. That ended up being abridged.
The New Prayers, in fact there are 16 of them, 17 if you count The Roman Canon having been Renovated, for The Consecration, contain The Epiclesis, which the Roman Canon does NOT have. This follows from The Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies.
But, unlike the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great, The Epiclesis goes BEFORE The Consecration, while in the Two Divine Liturgies, the Epiclesis is after the Divine Words of Institution.
And in the Two Divine Liturgies, there is only One Anaphora or Canon. The Novus Ordo Mass has the 17 Canons.

But, unlike in the Roman Canon of The Tridentine Mass, there are portions of Prayers in Parentheses, which means that the Priest has the option not to say that portion of the Prayer. This NEVER occurred in the True Roman Canon, EVER.

It is at The Time of The Consecration in The Roman Canon in the, where things were predefined. One could say that The Canon, when offered in a low voice, provided a truly Holy Atmosphere. But when The Offertory was changed to the Passover Table Prayer, the Roman Canon became disjointed.
The Roman Canon, at The Consecration, had a change done. It is at The Time when the Wine is changed into The Blood of Christ. In The Words of Institution, the Words “Mysterium Fidei”(Mystery Of Faith) appeared, signalling that Transubstantiation has occurred.
But, what then was added, has a Byzantine-Antiochian Orientation to this with Responses which the unedited Roman Canon never had. For The Mystery Of Faith had verses from St. Paul The Apostle’s Exhortation on The Eucharist, added on, which confused the Faithful, as, while Christ is here in The Present, the Faithful were not sure that He came down into The Eucharist or that His Coming is at The End of Time.

Please note though, while taking the Cue from The Byzantine & Antiochian Rites, the Byzantine Formula is a Thanksgiving Prayer for the Sacrament. As in the Other 16 Eucharistic Prayers, the unnecessary additions continue to baffle The Faithful.
The reason I mentioned The Byzantine Rite, is that my familiarity comes from attending the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, a total of 25 Times in Ukrainian Greek Catholic Churches. If you want to meet really knowledgeable Catholics, these Catholics are up there with Tridentine Latin Mass Catholics.

Now back at the Nicene Creed, instead of the word “Credo”meaning “I Believe” it was mistranslated as “We Believe”, a Collectivization of The Prayer. That Prayer changed with the 2011 Accurate Translations.

As For Standing for Holy Communion, this came when Altar Rails were Removed so Standing, an Abuse in the Roman/Latin Rite, became the practice.

The Roman/Latin Rite was becoming anything BUT.
My Most Dear Friend, who has witnessed the Ultra Abuse of “The Liturgical Music You Could Throw Up To,”, which would be about 85% of it, which she would not get caught singing, to which I say “Bravo”(No, Not The Cable Network by that Name), asked me as to “WHY Are We Trying To Please a Bunch of Heretics”, which is what she calls Protestants & Eastern Orthodox. She sounds like the Eastern Catholics who say exactly the same thing. Facing the People during the Ordinary Form Mass is a Protestant Practice. Another thing is that the Eastern Orthodox are NOT THRILLED in the Least, with the way this version of The Mass, what with some of their practices mixed into the New Liturgy. It has

been said of the 4th Eucharistic Prayer that the Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, has the Epiclesis before the Consecration, not after it. I should know from having been to the Byzantine Divine Liturgies In The Catholic Church. And it was a Modernist Benedictine Monk who edited it. In fact the Epiclesis is put before the Consecration In 16 Other Eucharistic Prayers, except for The Roman Canon(Eucharistic Prayer #1), whereby in The Tridentine Mass, the Epiclesis is in the Offertory.

At Holy Communion, the Roman/Latin Tradition was to kneel and receive on the tongue.
It was an Apostate Former Dominican Priest, Martin Bucer, who also wrote the Null and Void Holy Orders for the Church of England, who believed that Holy Communion was only a Memorial Meal & NOT The Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ, Introduced Communion In The Hand, to teach the Church of England that the Bread and Wine were only a Memorial Meal, not a Sacrament.
Now with the New Mass in place, more Novelties were to be introduced. It was In the Summer of 1977, when the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, under the Leadership of Modernist Prelate, Archbishop Joseph Bernadin, who, after losing Three Rounds of Holy Communion in The Hand, resorted, as if he was Mayor Richard J Daley of Chicago in the 1960 Presidential Elections, obtained(Fraudulently)votes from Retired & Bedridden Bishops(According to Bernadin), to bring the total up to 2/3 of The US Bishops in Favor of Holy Communion in The Hand. The Vatican stated that this could only be permissible if in a particular nation, the Unlawful Practice was out of control. This was certainly not the case in the USA.
Archbishop Bernadin meets Mayor Richard J Daley. The Fish smells from the Head, downward. It was so ironic & fitting that Archbishop Joseph Bernadin was named Archbishop of Chicago, with the Title of Prince of The Church(Cardinal). Because a Lie was submitted to The Holy See, THIS practice in the USA, is like Anglican Orders, namely NULL & VOID under Liturgical Law. It did not follow the Secret Ballot as Mandated by Pope Paul VI’s Encyclical, Memoriale Domini.

All of this started in The Netherlands, Belgium, West Germany & France, near the end of Vatican II. Supposedly, The Archbishops in those nations, couldn’t control the popular outcry for Holy Communion in The Hand. Particularly, in The Netherlands & Germany, there were cries for The Church to change Her Teaching on Birth Control.
An Indult was granted, based on Memoriale Domini.
South Africa and Canada were the 1st Two Nations, in 1970, to adopt Communion In The Hand. I wonder just how many Canadians still believe in The Real Presence, Eh(This is What I get for listening to CBC Radio One Montreal or Bob & Doug Mac Kenzie on “SCTV”, Eh).

In the Interest of “Inculturation”, supposedly “Native” Customs were added to The Mass, many of them of Pagan Origin, which led to many abuses.
The USA led off with Guitar Masses with the kind of Music, all of it so syrupy(Utter Treacle, which My Most Dear Friend puts it, just enough to cause a good many people to head to Vomitariums due to Acute Stomach Upset). This graduated to adding Drums & Bad Tambourines “From The $.99 Store”(Last Line of a Hymn Parody, called “Sing A New Song Unto Oneself”). The “Clown” & “Halloween” Masses & “Liturgical Dance” Masses, are America’s “Contribution” to “Inculturation.” Let The Vomiting Begin!

BTW, Clown & Halloween Masses as well as Liturgical Dance Masses are outlawed by Canon Law, as Sacrilegious Abuses.

Extraordinary Ministers Of Holy Communion were originally intended to bring Holy Communion to The Sick & The Elderly & That Is All. Later it was expanded to when NOT enough Priests, Deacons & Instituted Acolytes were available. It was not intended for them to be a Veritable Armada when there are only 50 People at the 8AM Mass on Queens Boulevard. The Extraordinary Ministers, some of the Nicest People I have ever met, aren’t really needed at 8AM, nor at 12Noon when there are about 75 to 100 People. I think that this is being tolerated because The Faithful are in a hurry in the Morning and so are The Priests.

The Tridentine Latin Mass & The Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great, have absolutely NONE of these abuses. And Everybody Faces Liturgical East, as if Facing Jerusalem.

Perhaps, a very telling statement on all this rigmarole, came from an unlikely source.
In 1969, One of the 6 Protestant Minister Consultants, Taize Community Subprior Brother Max Thurian, a Minister of the Swiss Reformed Church, and based in France, remarked that “There is nothing in this Liturgy which will offend a Modernist Protestant.”

The “Reform Of The Reform” Proposed

Fast Forward to 1988, and not only did Br. Max Thurian come into the One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church, Brother Max was ordained a Roman Rite Priest, and now was a Roman Rite Catholic Theologian, quite a bit more orthodox in practice than many in Rome. And he had a number of questions about the current Novus Ordo Mass, of which he was a major consultant.
From the Orientation of The Priest to The Congregation, he remarked that “With Priest Celebrant facing the People, The Mass closes in on itself.”
He began to criticize the New Mass Setup. For you see, Father Thurian was no dummy. He had celebrated this Mass. He was also named by Josef Cardinal Ratzinger(Later Pope Benedict XVI) to the Pontifical Commission on The Sacred Liturgy.
Father Max Thurian had come a long way from the Time he was a Protestant Consultant.
“The Mass has lost its Character of Mystery.”
So Father Maximilian Thurian proposed that from the time of The Offertory to the close of The Eucharistic Canon, that the Priest & People be reoriented towards Liturgical Jerusalem(Liturgical East). He also remarked that The Priest and People appeared to be in mere dialogue with each other, instead of in Worship.
Something tells me that Father Max “Got It”, that The Mass is a Sacrifice & NOT a Memorial Meal. Cardinal Ratzinger, sadly, may have been the only One who knew what Father was talking about. The Rest of The Commission, ignored Father Thurian.
Father Thurian died in 1996, on The Feast Of The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary in Switzerland on the day before his 75th Birthday.
Because he became a Catholic Priest, Brother Roger Schutz, The Prefect of the Taize Community, considered Father Thurian to be a Traitor, for leaving the Community of Taize.
Requiscant In Pace, Father Thurian, Amen.

It was in 1969 & 1970 that the Definition of The Mass, in the General Instruction of The Roman Missal, never mentioned the word “Sacrifice.” The Mass was given the name of “The Lord’s Supper Or Mass”, which is the name that The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Apostate Thomas Cranmer, gave his version of The Mass, replete with Freestanding Table Altar. Cranmer, like Martin Luther, went with a Table instead of a High Altar, because both lost the Truth of The Mass as Sacrifice, only becoming a Memorial Meal. Luther reputed anything to do with Oblation(Sacrifice). Cranmer said it more succinctly when he remarked that “An Altar is Made For Sacrifice, While A Table is for Preparing a Meal.” Both Cranmer & Luther were once Catholic Priests With Higher Authority. So if one reads The Definition of The Mass according to the 1970 Roman Missal, one will think that the Apostate Thomas Cranmer, wrote this definition.

In “The Ottaviani Intervention”, the New Mass in its form was(& Still Is) “A Striking Departure From The Theology of The Mass.” After going to my 1st Tridentine Latin Mass in 2007, after years of The Novus Ordo, which was a bit over 42 Years without it, I realized that the Tridentine Mass is both The Real Mass & The Intelligent Choice. It was through The Tridentine Mass that I was led to experience the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. It was at The Divine Liturgy where I recognized that One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church is Truly Universal.
According to Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci, the New Mass would alienate the Orthodox(Especially when one of The Anaphoras, The Anaphora of St. Basil The Great, in Eucharistic Prayer #4, was butchered by a Modernist Benadictine Priest/Monk. Pope St. John Paul II was rebuffed by the Eastern Orthodox, because of The Novus Ordo Mass. Cardinals Ottaviani & Bacci hit the nail on The head with this observation.

And Pope Francis I says we must keep moving forward? To Where? Utter Oblivion?

When the Tridentine Latin Mass all but disappeared in The 1970s, the Byzantine Rite became the temporary home of many traditionalists. It is a Great thing that Blessed Paul VI said “No” to certain Latin Rite US Bishops who wanted the Eastern Catholic Churches closed so that Eastern Catholics may assimilate into the Roman Rite. I think that many Eastern Catholics would have rebelled, especially when the New Mass was promulgated. A Cantor in Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church despised the Guitar Music at his Mom’s Roman Rite Parish.

In regards to People presenting the Gifts of Bread & Wine to the Priests at Mass, in the name of “Active Participation”, this practice died when Religious Orders began making the Elements themselves. So WHY resurrect it?

The Offertory used to have a Sung Chant until The New Mass replaced it with an Offertory Song of the “Vomit, Barf, Puke” Modern Variety. Fortunately, at St. Agnes on East 43rd Street, a Gregorian Chant is sung by the Cantor in Latin. “Table of Plenty” by Dan Schutte would cause St. Agnes Parishioners to form a queue at the nearby Vomitarium.

The ONLY, True Participation in The Mass is To listen to The Gospel and receive The Body of Christ at Holy Communion.

As for Holy Communion under both Species in The Roman/Latin Rite, in order to cut down on the Communion In Hand Traffic, make Holy Communion to be received by Intinction. The trouble with receiving under both species is that the Ordinary Roman Rite Catholic is confused as to whether he or she received all of The Christ. In either form, one receives All of HIM, no ifs, ands or buts. Running from Communion Station to Drinking from a Common Chalice, allows potential and actual illnesses to spread.

Restore The Communion Rail in the Roman/Latin Rite. Roman Rite Catholics should kneel when receiving The Body of Christ. It is a Profound Sign of Humility & Worship. This is NOT mere bread. It Is HIM who feeds you.

Forget about Holy Communion in The Hand. By the Definition of Memoriale Domini, that permission or Indult, passed by the US Bishops, is actually invalid, due to the actions of Archbishop(Cardinal) Bernadin, counting supposed Telephone Ballots. No Good!

Like My Most Dear Friend has said to me:
“WHY are We Kowtowing To Heretics?”

And You Wonder WHY The Vatican II Church is in the Massive Mess it is in today.

<, While The “Bride Of Christ” is NOT Wounded., with this Liturgy drawn up to please such Rationalists as are Mainline Protestants who DENY The Sacrifice Of The Mass, It is Wounding The Christ Himself by Worship of Humanity, Truly a Grave Violation of The 1st Commandment.

Kyrie Elaison!

From Freedom To Liberty, The Novus Ordo Mass Part One.

24 Apr

Perhaps in 1967, when one of my Nuns(Who Wasn’t One By June 18th, 1969) began to wear a Modern Habit, I had an idea that something was about to change, for later that year, something called “The Folk Mass” was to come of age.
For the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, petitioned the Holy See & called for Total Vernacular and Offertory & Consecration to be recited aloud. I finally got to hear both Offertory & Roman Canon Consecration Prayers for the Very 1st Time. This was still the Tridentine Form of The Mass. This is also where the “Pro Multis” Translation became controversial. One could say that a New Movement was underway. In fact, TWO Movements were underway. One was “Sedevacantism” where the Chair of Peter has been vacant since Pope Pius XII, said by Sedevacantists to be the Last Real Pope, With Antipopes occupying the Chair of Peter. The Other Movement is The Catholic Traditionalist Movement, calling For Authentic Catholic Liturgy & Practice, including The Tridentine Mass in Latin.

The Translation Controversy:
Multis, a Latin Word, is Root for “Multiple, Multiply, Multi.” But Multis, is also Many. Yet, Multis was translated as All. Omni is the Latin for All. This pattern would follow into the Novus Ordo Missae, where until 1St Sunday of Advent, 2011, the English Language “Translations” were Suspect.

As to which person had the sheer audacity to come up with the “Guitar Mass”  was Benedictine Arch Abbot Rembert Weakland, now Archbishop Emeritus of the R C Archdiocese of Milwaukee, WI. He and a group of Bishops had exploited the Ambiguous Language of Sacrosanctum Concilium in regards to Appropriate Liturgical Music in Place of Gregorian Chant. Do you think that I like Guitar Masses? By the time that I was 16, I had enough of that Music, which wouldn’t go over too well in a Greenwich Village Kaffehaus.

Two Additions & Two Subtractions(Tridentine Form):
The “Judica Me Deus” prayer of The Priest was eliminated in 1965. The Last Gospel According To St. John, which is The Story of The Incarnation, was also eliminated.
The Addition was called and still called today “General Intercessions-Prayers of The Faithful.” Some people think that this is Lutheran but is actually derived from the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil The Great(Tridentine Calendar Feast Days are in January). At 1st this Line of Chant was sung or said on Sundays after the Nicene Creed, then was added to be offered 7 Days a Week in the Novus Ordo.
The Other was the extension of The Kiss of Peace to the General Congregation. This Practice faded away many centuries ago in the Roman/Latin Church but was kept alive by The Maronite Catholic Church in The Antiochean Rite. This would continue in the New Mass, in The current form at one Rather Large Parish Church In Forest Hills, where it’s Nickname is “The Martyrs Wave” since everybody is so spread out, particularly at The 8:00AM Daily Mass.
I will state that the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is both a Mass of Sacrifice and Reparation, and a Source of Instruction, a Key to understanding both the Ordinary Form of Mass today & the Tridentine Form of Mass.

The Mass Of Freedom & The Mass Of Liberty:
Freedom means being Free to do what is required, while Liberty, which is part & Parcel, Liberalism, means being Free to do whatever One wants to do.

As to what occurred when the Roman Latin Catholic Church when the Mass was switched from Freedom To Liberty, or from Truly Roman Rite to Neo-Protestantism, it began slowly on Sunday, November 29th, 1964, here in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, NY. Mass began as Usual at The Appointed Times. But, the 1st Appearance of Laity came to the Tridentine Form of The Mass In the Form of a Commentator(If You are thinking of FOX Sports One Time Lead Baseball Analyst, Tim Mc Carver, who is Catholic of Irish Descent, you would not only be incorrect, you would be thinking that Acoustic Torture occurred. In a few instances it might be True). The Commentator explained the Parts of The Mass which until November 29th, 1964, were in Latin. Frankly, this 1st Novelty was NOT Needed, especially since this was the Same Form of Mass as it was in Latin. The Offertory & Consecration were offered in Latin. The Changes were as follows:
The “Judica Me Deus”(“Judge Me O God”), recited by The Priest, as a form of Humility before God The Father, as the Priest acts “In Persona Christi”(In The Person of Christ) to offer Christ’s Sacrifice to The Father at The High Altar,as Another Christ(Alter Christus).
The Priest’s Confession of Sins occurred with his recitation of The Confiteor. The Servers & now joined by the Parishioners did the Response to the Priest’s Confiteor. The Public Confiteor was recited by the Parishioners, followed by The Priest giving his absolution followed by the Amen from the People in The Pews. The names of the Saints(Blessed Virgin Mary, Blessed Michael The Archangel, Blessed John The Baptist, The Holy Apostles Peter & Paul & All The Saints)were still intact so that they may be intercessors before God.

The Kyrie retained the “3, 3, 3” format. The Gloria followed The Kyrie(Except in Advent & Lent).
The Introit(Opening Prayer) was recited before the Epistle, followed by The Gradual and then The Gospel. After the Gospel came the Homily.

This 1st Part of The Mass, called The Mass of The Catechumens(Those Under Religious Instruction for Coming into The Catholic Church) was now called “Liturgy Of The Word.”

The Second Part of The Mass, which was called “Mass Of The Faithful”, was renamed “Liturgy Of The Eucharist.” Only on Sundays, was the the Nicene Creed prayed(Credo In Uno Deo or “I Believe In One God”). What followed on Sundays was a New Part of The Mass, called “Prayers Of The Faithful-General Intercessions.” This is a Byzantine Rite Import, coming from the General Prayer of The Divine Liturgies of The Byzantine Rite, which most Latin Rite Catholics have No Idea about. Many Roman Rite Catholics believed this to be a Protestant Innovation. Then again, most Roman Rite Catholics have no idea about Eastern Catholic Churches. Those of us who head to The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in the Ruthenian or Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, are used to these acclamations during the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Antiphons. Protestant, it is NOT. St. John Chrysostom would come down on you for talking about this, as he is a Doctor Of The Church.

The Offertory had 6 Prayers in the Roman/Latin Rite, where The Priest anticipated The Sacrifice by praying for Forgiveness of his sins as well as for Those People, Living & Dead. There is also The Epiclesis to call upon The Holy Spirit to come upon The Bread & Wine to become The Body & Blood of Christ. In The Byzantine Rite, the Epiclesis is during the Eucharistic Canon.
Finally, there is a Prayer for Purifying the Hands, which is part of the Byzantine Rite’s Preparation of The Gifts before the Public part of the Divine Liturgies.

This is still a Sacrificial Mass. This Mass is still The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass. The Priest still faced towards Jerusalem.
The Orate Fratres was recited, followed by a Prayer followed by the Sanctus & then The Roman Canon. There was only ONE Canon. There was no Parenthesis & Option. Everything was offered. At the Time of The Consecration, there was no Narrative. It was all The Words of Christ which the Priest prayed. When the Blood was consecrated, the Words “Mysterium Fidei”(Mystery of Faith) were spoken, signifying that Transubstantiation(Elements were changed) to the Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity of Christ) had occurred.
The Prayers CONTINUED with the end of Each Prayer stating “Though Christ Our Lord.”
Then, The Lord’s Prayer(Our Father) was prayed. It is here that the Kiss of Peace was prayed. The Sign of Peace was only an option. Then the Holy Communion Rite, where the Priest received 1st, followed by Public Reception occurred. The Ejaculation of “Domine Non Sum Dignus”(O Lord I am Not Worthy) was recited 3 Times by Priest and later by The Congregation.
People knelt and received Holy Communion.
Beginning at Easter in 1964, The Priest said “Corpus Christi” and the Response was “Amen.” Translated into English, it was “Body of Christ” followed by “Amen”(From 11/29/1964 onward).

There was no Last Gospel on 11-29-1964 except at the High Mass(Still The Tridentine Latin Mass).

The Blessing came followed by a Final Priestly Prayer & then the Dismissal with the Sign of The Cross.

On Sunday, November 30th, 1969 things would be so Different. The Translation was Horrible. And The Mass had a New Name, using what the Church of England gave the Liturgy, “The Lord’s Supper, Also Called The Mass, it was “Welcome To Protestantism in The Roman Rite Of The Catholic Church”, as the Priest faced the Congregation for the 1st Time. It was weird to be at this Mass. The Confiteor left out the Saints, except for One Mention of Blessed Mary Ever Virgin near the end of The Prayer and a Double Mention of “Vos Fratres”(My Brethren in a Politically Correct Form, of “Brothers & Sisters”, leaving out of the “Translation” of “Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa”(Through My Fault, Through My Fault, Through My Most Grievous Fault). This turned out to be an option.
The Kyrie went in a “2, 2, 2” configuration. Eventually the Gloria was said by Christmas. The Nicene Creed was badly Translated and turned into a Communal Response. The Confiteor was mistranslated. Years later I read the Confiteor and found that it took its Cue from the Lutheran Version of The Prayer.
The Offertory took its Cue from A Book, Condemned by Christ, called The Talmud, a book of Jewish Traditions, which cursed both Christ & The Blessed Virgin Mary. No longer were prayers for Living and Dead offered by The Priest, who was called “Presider”. Something had gone terribly wrong.

And People eventually stopped showing up for Mass.
And Chaos Reigned. Eventually there was Holy Communion in The Hand & Standing for Holy Communion. Mass Schedules changed dramatically. For once there were 10 Sunday Masses. In many of the Parishes, there are only 10 Masses all Week..

In the Parish in which I was baptized in City Line, Brooklyn, there were 10 Masses on Sunday. Today, there are only 10 Scheduled Masses all week, excluding Funerals & Weddings.
Daily Masses were offered at 6, 7, 8 & 9:00AM. Once a month, on 1st Friday, Mass was offered at 11:00AM, followed by Benediction of The Blessed Sacrament for the Children of The Catholic School.

The beginnings of Saturday Vigil Masses was in 1970 here In the Brooklyn Diocese. That 7:30PM Mass was well attended. It had NONE of the Horrible Music which drove people on Sunday, crazy.
But, attendance dropped so Masses were consolidated. Masses started at 8AM, 9:30AM, 11AM & 12:30PM. Masses in the School Hall no longer occurred. There were only 5 Sunday Masses including the Saturday Vigil. Hence, the results of the change of The Mass was beginning to be felt. The Teaching of The Catholic Faith in Catholic Schools dispensed with the Teaching of Sound Doctrine. Concepts replaced Doctrine.

Two and One Half Generations of Young People were lost. I remember one 1969 Elementary School Classmate, became a Baptist. The Tridentine Latin Mass which reinforced Catholic Teaching, was offered in very few places.

IT’S A DISASTER. What was supposed to be “Renewal Through The Liturgy” & a “New Springtime”, has been a Long Winter.

End of Part I.

Kyrie Elaison!

A masterstroke of evil genius | Harvesting the Fruit of the Vatican II

The Novus Ordo Mass & So Called “Inculturation”, is really nothing more than presenting “Entertainment”, with a Mass included.
One can almost envision a “Chuck Barris” Style to The Sacred Liturgy, perhaps in the form of “The $.99 Beauty Pageant” or “The Gong Show.”

As a Dear Friend once called it, “Bad Yogurt which sits in the Sun for 3 Days, is pretty bad.”
Actually, that would be “Rotted Milk”, which would cause massive nausea+Other Maladies. So imagine a Mass of assorted(& Sordid)”Entertainments”, and what they would do for(& TO) Your Soul.

It ain’t Pretty & is Blasphemous.

My Most Dear Friend “Gets It”.

27 Mar

My Most Dear Friend realizes this fact, whenever she is at Daily Mass, as well on Sundays & Holy Days of Obligation:

Since Jesus is in The Tabernacle on what is supposedly the High Altar, under the Appearance of Bread in the Form of a Host(From The Latin Hostia which is Victim), & since He IS God The Son, My Friend asked “WHY Does The Priest Have His Back turned AWAY From God.”
That is a question with an answer in the form of an explanation:
During the Protestant “Reformation”, which is nothing more than Heresy in the form of a Revolution, with some Arianism thrown in to flavor it, Luder(Who changed his name to Luther, because Luder means Beast), supposedly “Reformed” The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, by declaring that there is NO Sacrifice(Funny but why Did The Christ offer The Bloodless Sacrifice to His Father in Heaven at The Last Supper & then the Bloody One on The Cross).
Luther then decided that this is a Memorial Meal. A Meal is served on a Table, while a Sacrifice is offered on an Altar.
Luther then declared that since Priests offer Sacrifice, & Luther does not believe in Sacrifice, a Sacrificing Priesthood is unnecessary. To Luther, those gathered in the pews of the Assembly are the Priesthood of the People. All are equal with the one conducting the Communion Service. To Luther, the Bread & Wine do not change into the Body & Blood of Christ. Rather, the Bread & Wine contain the Body & Blood of Christ, hence no changes in substances. The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, also believed in this and The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass, became “The Lord’s Supper, Commonly Called The Mass.”
Cranmer, later burned at the stake for Heresy on the orders of the Catholic Queen Mary, also believed in Table over Altar. He had a consultant, an Apostate former Priest of the Dominican Order called Martin Bucer, who was German, who denied the Sacramental Presence of Christ in The Eucharist, who introduced Holy Communion in The Hand, to remind people that this is not a Sacrifice but a Memorial Meal.

Fast Forward to the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, which was nothing more than an oversized Revolutionary Synod, filled with Ambiguous Language in Her Documents, especially in connection with the offering of the Holy Eucharist. It was in December of 1963, when Sacrosanctum Concillium was issued on how the Mass of The Roman Rite is to be offered in the Modern World.

Post Vatican II is in reality The Continuation of The Gathering of all the Bishops in Rome, with The Commissions now continuing their work. It was in a period of 1966 to 1969 that the details of the New Mass were being worked on. It was during this period that 6 Protestant Ministers were called in as Consultants on how to make for a Liturgy of Modern Man(What happened to God in this equation).

November 29th, 1964
Permission granted to use update to the Missale Romanum of 1962 with Update & Permission to offer the Tridentine Mass with parts of it in English being allowed for the 1st Time.
The Latin was retained in the Offertory, where the Priest made reparation for his Sins and for all the Souls both Living & Dead. The Consecration was offered in Latin. Both Offertory & Consecration are prayed Silently. 
Subtractions from the Mass were a short prayer of the Priest just before the Confiteor was said & the Last Gospel, discontinued after the Final Blessing.
Added on Sunday Masses were the Prayers of The Faithful, a variation taken from the Byzantine Divine Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom & St. Basil The Great. Also to be offered is The Sign of Peace, which was last done in the 14th Century, but CONTINUED in the Rite of Antioch with The Maronites.

First Sunday Of Advent 1966
Entire Tridentine Form Mass converts to Vernacular. Latin Masses are Solemn, High Masses only(Missa Cantata).
It is here that The formerly low voice parts at the Offertory & Consecration were now read aloud. At some parishes the Table Altar with Versus Populum is an experiment.
But, there is a Translation Controversy. This Controversy launched the Traditional Latin Mass Movement. For it took a translation of the Latin Phrase “Pro Multis”, from which words like Multiple come From, the phrase was translated into “For All Men”, which is “Pro Omnibus”.
There was also Terminology Changes.
In the Tridentine Latin Mass, The Part of the Mass before the Offertory & Consecration was called “The Mass of The Catechumens.” From the Nicene Creed onward, it was now “The Mass of The Faithful.”
For “Mass of The Catechumens”, the term “Liturgy Of The Word” became the words. The New Operative Words for “Mass of The Faithful” became “Liturgy of The Eucharist.” Something was up.

“The Competent Ecchlesiastical Territory of Bishops”:
In some Archdiocese in South America called Buenos Aires in Argentina, the Metropolitan Archbishop for all of Argentina, found ways not to enforce Summorum Pontificum in regards to the Tridentine Latin Mass of The 1962 Roman Missal. This Archbishop had a nearly barren Seminary & went all OUT with the one thing that Vatican II is most noted for, the “False Ecumenism” of The Age.
Alas, he also never celebrated the Venerable Tridentine Latin Mass. But he does have expertise in the Venerable Divine Liturgies of the Byzantine Rite, namely the Divine Liturgies of St. Basil The Great & St. John Chrysostom(Both revered in the Eastern Orthodox Churches & in the Byzantine Rite of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, as well as the Roman Rite of The Catholic Church, especially among devotees of The Tridentine Latin Mass).

“1964”
The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass starts to lose some but not all of The Mystery.

“1967”
All of The Mass is offered with Priest preaching & praying aloud. Guitar Masses run into the New Mass. More tables and fewer altars appear.

1969
Novus Ordo Mass appears. The Translation from Latin to English is horrible. “And Also With You” replaces ‘”And. With your Spirit.”
Confiteor is a collective prayer. Priest becomes a Presider, as well as performer.
And the back is turned on Christ in the tabernacle. New Mass becomes The Norm. It becomes an Assembly. With table & prayers presenting this as the celebration of a Memorial Supper, the Mass goes off the rails. Theme Masses become all the rage & lose the mystery.

Meanwhile Catholic Traditionalist Movement gains. A number join the Eastern Catholic Churches as the attendance spirals downward.

It is that case today.

Thank You for asking that question, Most Dear Friend for it is the Mass of Protestantism with Byzantine Elements to keep a Catholic Presence, but with None of The Solemnity.
We have turned our backs on God.
