All Saints Day Tridentine Latin Mass & A “Marathon”

2 Nov

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

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

It Was At Giants Stadium As I Remember

10 Aug

It was Soccer Great Pele’s Last Game. Pele'(Edson Arrantes Do Nascimento) received the Most Thunderous of Applause.

But the Game, in The New Jersey Meadowlands, was at a place called Giants Stadium.

The Next Largest Ovation went to RB-WR #16, a Member of The Pro Football Hall Of Fame. He was broadcasting for ABC Sports On That Day.

As there were Numerous NY Football Giants Fans in attendance, that other Thunderous Ovation went to Frank Gifford, whose Giants Heroics spanned the Polo Grounds and Yankee Stadium.

And “The Giff” was not forgotten. He died yesterday at home on Greenwich, CT, of Natural Causes, age 84, a Week short of his 85th Birthday.

Kyrie Elaison!


A Death, Bill Belichik, A Call From Above

4 Feb

Ann Mara died. She is the Widow of Wellington Mara. A moment of Silence was held before Super Bowl XLIX.

For Bill Belichik stood solemnly for this moment, as he was once a Giants Assistant Coach under Bill Parcells in the Glory Times of the Middle 1980s-Early 1990s. Belichik understood the World of “Mara Tech” quite well. For he looked as if his Bravado was gone. He even appeared with what appeared to be a tear in his eye.

It was a moment few, if any, would notice, if any at all. But I took notice of this 3 Days Ago, especially since Sunday, February 1st was Super Bowl Sunday.

It was as if Bill was in meditative prayer mode when the NFL made the announcement.

And in “Mara Tech” Style, Belichik was victorious.

Pete Carroll was not from “Mara Tech.”

M, Eh!

J C T S, Just Continue The Season

10 Nov

NY Jets 20
Pittsburgh Steelers 13
NY Jets are 2-8 & have a bye next Sunday.
Unbelievable! They have won a game in an upset in The Meadowlands in New Jersey.

I was at the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom at St George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the East Village. It was a change of Pace Catholic Church Liturgy. It was Older Than Old School, but it was in English. And it is older than the Tridentine Latin Mass.

And the NY J E T S won at last.

Deo Gratias!

M, Eh!

“Three Pro XXII”

4 Nov

This is the 22nd Sunday After Pentecost, the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time and 3rd in the Countdown to The 50th Anniversary of The Vernacularized Portions of The Tridentine Form Mass, as well as to the 45th Anniversary of The Mass of Paul VI, which led to the Queens Latin Mass Group’s Battle Cry of “No NO”, which is chanted at the Post Holy Communion Meeting of The Queens Latin Mass Group “Parking and Chowder Society” Tailgating Party, an idea taken from the NY Jets in their Shea Stadium Days.

“Three, Set, No NO, Hut, Hut” are the After Mass Audibles for XXII Sunday After Pentecost.

Hic Et Nunc(Hat Tip to Fr Daniel Champoli for Latin Version of “Here and Now)

M, Eh!

How Would Fr Volpi Handle The NFL

6 Oct

Perhaps, due to a Compact between The Holy See and NFL Owners, NFL Football will take the Modernist Track and become a “Touch League.”

This will be praised, effusively, by Vatican Deputy Censor, MV I, using the wotds of one which MV I, has approved of, by authority of PF1, without a Ctitical Eye, as to the NFL becoming a touch league.
MV I simply asks all NFL Spectators the question, “Who Am I To Judge” & “Take it up with my Major Domo.”

Sundays become a Disaster as no one shows at the Stadia.
