Good King(& Saint) Wenceslas

30 Sep

Monday was a Liturgical Doubleheader in Two Versions of The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass.

Now on the Novus Ordo Mass Calendar, two Saints are Commemorated on this day. San Lorenzo Ruiz, Patron Saint of The Philippines has his feast on September 28th. At Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills, Queens, the Celebration occurred at the 1PM Mass on Sunday, September 27th.
St. Wencheslas is also commemorated on September 28th. So at OLQM’s 8:00AM Mass, Fr Antonin Kocurek offered the 8:00AM in honour of his country’s Patron Saint(Czech Republic).
At 6PM at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan, The Mass was offered in Latin in Honour of St. Wencheslas, as this Feast is on the Traditional Latin Mass Calendar.
Wencheslas was murdered by his Brother.
The Vestment Color was Red at the Tridentine Latin Mass, in Honor of a Martyr.
At the Conclusion of that Mass, “Good King Wencheslas” was sung.
Christmas is a little under 90 Days away. By celebration of this Saint, we are reminded of December 25th.

Deo Gratias!

From Madison Square Garden-O How Novus Ordo

26 Sep

Please! Even With all The “Smells & Bells”, Novus Ordo is Novus Ordo is Novus Ordo Missae.

Even when the Pope offers this before a crowd in Madison Square Garden, The Mass still closes in on itself.

And no matter how fancy, it is still the Form which caused many of the Faithful to say good bye to the Catholic Faith.

September 11 & Byzantine Catholics

10 Sep

For those of you who are Ukrainian Greek Catholic and are on the Traditional Julian Calendar, tomorrow is The Feast & Fast of The Beheading of St. John The Baptist. It is a Day of Liturgy(Holy Day of Obligation) & a Day of Abstention From Meat. According to the Traditional Julian Calendar, September 11th on the Gregorian Calendar is August 29th on the Traditional Julian Calendar.

But, I doubt that any of you have forgotten Tuesday September 11th, 2001 when at 8:46 AM ET, a Plane was crashed into the North Tower at the World Trade Center Complex, followed by a second Plane crashing into the South Tower of The World Trade Center Complex at 9:03AM ET. The South Tower collapsed at 9:59AM ET, with the North Tower collapsing at 10:29AM ET.

Do this day as one of Prayer & Penance. Also do abstain from Meat. This is for all Catholics, East & West.

Ad Aeternam Et In Paradisium, Orate Fratres.

The Cooling Weather & The End Of Novus Ordo Silliness

10 Sep

I may be able to Enjoy going to both the Tridentine Latin Mass & Byzantine Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, after the Horrible Heat & Humidity of Summer, 2015. Going to a “WYSISWYG” Novus Ordo Mass, complete with the “Simging” of “Utter Treacle”, which causes for long lines at the Vomitarium, is more than annoying. One is not awed nor inspired by “Gifts of Finest Wheat”, which is both Treacly and Ecumenical, as it is more a song about elements than of Sacrament.
“WYSIWYG” is a Computer Expression meaning “What You See Is What You Get”, and in “Novus Dis-Ordo Land”, you may come to a “Table Of Plenty” loaded with “Utter Schutte” & Way Too Much Treacle. However, it does bring about a lot of Snark Filled Writing, on Subjects ranging from Obama & Trump to the October “Schism On The Family”, a Statement Attributed to Michael J. Matt, which means that “Simon Censor Pro Bellum Voriscum” will see to it that I NEVER Comment on ChurchMilitant.com, offering a Defence of Fratrum Sacerdotus Sancte Pius Decca or SSPX, those 4 Letters constituting a Bad Word, never to be uttered in the Presence of “Dear Anchor”, nor Mrs Niles, nor the Gaggle Of Cub Reporters.

On One Sunday this Month, I may do a Byzantine Ruthenian Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom & SSPX TLM, so from the Rising of The Sun to its’ Setting, A Perfect offering To The Triune Godhead may be made for The Glory of The Lord. I have come to the conclusion that the Ordinary Form Mass(Novus Ordo)is fine for weekdays, but on Sundays, it is NOT Truly the Highest Form of Worship. It will fulfill one’s Sunday & Holy Day Obligation, but it does NOT truly show Catholicity.

And Sheerly Novus Ordo Catholics have the Least Catholic Knowledge of ANY Catholic, East or West. As that Ukrainian Greek Catholic Woman @ St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Manhattan’s East Village, said about Communion A Mano(In The Hand), “We Are NOT Priests-Only Priests should handle The Lord.”

Amen!

Kyrie Elaison!

“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!
