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!

A Pope, The Magisterium & “Mr Mouthwash”

14 Apr

Matrimony is tied into The Eucharist. Violating the Bond of Matrimony through Divorce, does NOT mean that this Sacrament is dissolved. It cannot be dissolved. The Catholic Church, however, through Annulment, judges as to whether or not a Valid Marriage had occurred. One may not enter into a Civil “Second Marriage” as this would constitute Adultery & both parties under Church Law would be denied the Sacraments, particularly Holy Communion & Penance. This was called Excommunication when I was educated in the RC Diocese of Brooklyn. Divorce was unheard of when I was in Catholic School.

I had a Speech Therapist. A nice woman, she resided in Forest Hills Gardens in Queens. She was divorced with two sons. She was not Catholic. I think she was Lutheran. I asked my Mom about Divorce. Her answer was “That’s what Protestants do.” Annulment is NOT in Protestant Vocabulary. Nor is it in the Vocabulary of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. Divorce, sadly, is in both Protestant & Eastern Orthodox Faiths.
For Christ said that Marriage is Forever & Divorce is out of The Question, so Second Marriages were out of The Question.

Like “What Game On FOX is Pope Francis I watching?” He, from Observation, either doesn’t understand Doctriine, or disregards Doctrine completely. As the Utterly Liberaltastic Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio, a person who was Divorced & Civilly Remarried in the RC Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, often received Holy Communion with Cardinal Bergoglio’s Permission. He often visited Los Barrios(Slum Areas), where many people were married a few times, and authorized the giving of Holy Communion to these Multi Marrieds, who divorced and Civilly Remarried. It is contrary to Church Law and The Magisterium to do this but Bergoglio was a Disobedient Archbishop.

The Apple doesn’t fall far from the Tree. In his early goings as Pope Francis I, Bergoglio gave Telephone Permission to two women who were divorced/Civilly Remarried to receive Holy Communion. These are the only two women that anyone knows of. It may have occurred more times than what we know of the two women.

It is as if Rome is the New Buenos Aires. As there were two Synods, called “Synods On The Family”(More like “Synods Of Doom” as Christopher Ferrara calls them) in October, 2014 & 2015, called by Pope Francis I. His Intent is to Change Doctrine via the “Pastoral Route”, whereby the Law stays on the books but a new interpretation is given to that Law.
Welcome to Stealth.

Neo Catholic Broadcast Journalist Who Denies This Heresy:
Actually The Neo Catholic Broadcast Journalist Who runs a Studio under subsidy of a Fat Cat Backer In Texas, is into Censorship of the variety which would make the CHINESE Envious.
(The North Koreans would be even more envious).
Papalotry runs deep here. Censoring a report that Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke called for Pope Francis I to be more clear at Synod Of Doom Part One, tells me that this Internet TV outlet, would be useful to the current Papacy, as a Mere Propaganda Tool. The Executive Producer is named in part for a Mouthwash.
Of course, if Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan comits an act of Flatulence aboard a Northbound IND 6th Avenue D Train headed to Yankee Stadium, this outlet will break in with Correspondents in New York & Detroit to announce the Flatulence, but when Pope Francis I is pronouncing Heresy in an Exhortation, it is WHITEWASHED.
MR Mouthwash, your report is Drivel. It says NOTHING about the Evil being perpetrated. It is as if The Evildoer does NOT exist.
And you don’t read the Vatican Documents.
YOU ARE A MOUTHPIECE FOR A FAT CAT IN TEXAS, whose Nuns in Oyster Bay, North Shore of Long Island where that FAT CAT GREW UP, didn’t smack this guy around enough. Neither did his High School Brothers in Mineola, in the Town of North Hempstead, teach this guy a Lesson.
Are you sure that you’re a Newsman, Mr Mouthwash?

The Remnant Newspaper, Catholic Family News, akaCatholic.com, Rorate Caeli & Mundabor’s Sites, I fully recommend as Catholic Sites. The Internet TV outlet in Ferndale, MI, heavily hosted by Mr Mouthwash, is NOT on my recommended list.

The Gospels Over 3 Days

7 Mar

First Friday was Novus Ordo, as was Saturday, which is called Saturday of Our Lady. Today is the 1st Sunday. It is also the Fourth Sunday In Lent, called Laetere Sunday, which is a Lenten Sunday of Joy. It means that Easter(Pesach) is Nigh. And I was at St. Agnes on E43rd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
Friday, March 4th at 8:00AM & The Mass Celebrant was the Most Reverend Paul Sanchez, aided by the Pastor Emeritus of St. Vincent Ferrer Parish in Brooklyn, Monsignor Fursey O’Toole, Irish Born.
The Gospel was the Greatest Commandments, both of which summarize the 10 Commandments. As Jesus said “Thou Shalt Love The Lord Thy God, With All Thy Heart, With All Thy Soul, With All Thy Mind & With All Thy Strength. The Second Great Commandment is “Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbour as Thyself.” An Example of “Love Thy Neighbour” was given at The 12:05PM Mass by Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Administrator, Fr Frank Passenant & it was an Excellent Example. We don’t always look at Our Parents as Neighbours, but they are the Neighbours closest to you. Hey, They’re Neighbours by Blood. Pray For Them, both Living & Dead.
First Saturday at the 12:05PM Mass was offered by Fr Frank Passenant. This is the Story in The Gospel of The Pharisee & The Publican. The Pharisees were the Learned Religious Men. They were The Priestly Class of Judaism. But, they were NOT always known for their Humility. Everything was OUTWARD, but not always INTERIOR.
Publican is a Nice Name for The Most Hated of Roman Officials, namely The Tax Collector. Many of these Men were conmen, often taking more than what was due. For the Tax Collector was one who often lived like a Fat Cat. For he was a Private Contractor for the Roman Empire, who often took Liberties beyond what was due. And One of The Original 12 Apostles, Matthew, was originally a Tax Collector. He was also one of The 4 Evangelists in The Writing of The Gospels.
In this Gospel, The Pharisee is, in his Prayer to The Lord, bragging about how good he is, while degrading others such as Publicans. This guy was there to be seen, like close to The Sanctuary, practically telling The Lord that his “Excrement doesn’t have a foul odor.”
What A Schmuck!
Meanwhile, The Sinful Publican, barely able to raise his eyes Heavenward, who was all the way in the rear of The Temple, actually recognized the fact that he was a Sinner, & begged The Lord in this manner, “Lord, Be Merciful To Me For I Am A Sinner.”
The Publican received God’s Mercy. The Pharisee only got the Admiration of Man.
For Today on Lautare Sunday, as this is the Sunday indicating, that The Joy of Easter is Near, hence Vestments in the Bright Colour of Pink, Today’s Gospel for The Tridentine Latin Mass is The Miracle of The Loaves Of Bread & Fish. It was only 5 Loaves of Bread and 2 Fish, yet there was enough left over to fill 12 Baskets. There were 5,000 Men who were fed. This was The Miracle of The Loaves & Fish, and Jesus Multiplied the Loaves & Fish. No one left hungry.
Three Days, Four Masses & The Good News, The Gospel Of The Lord Jesus Christ!

Laus Tibi Christe!

Reports From Mill Basin(GMV Screws Up)

6 Feb

The Supposed “Star Wars” Version of The Novus Ordo Mass, was actually just a simple “Family Mass”, offered in the Mill Basin Section of The Borough of Brooklyn at St. Bernard of Clairveux, where Msgr Jamie Gigantiello is Pastor.
From Info supplied from Mill Basin, next door to Marine Park, an area which uses the Flatbush Street System, as in East 69th Street, close to Flatbush Avenue, located near the Kings Plaza Shopping Centre, This “Star Wars Mass”, was not the actual Liturgy itself, but a Themed Party afterwards.
However, NO ONE, But the Priest(s), Deacon(s), Acolytes, Lectors & Servers should be in The Sanctuary, where The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass occurs. This is Sacred Territory. I believe that Liturgical Law covers this.
A Warning by Bishop Di Marzio is in order here, as well as better writing of Celebration Posters.

Deacon Greg Kandra, in the comboxes of The Lepanto Institute, advised people to not jump to conclusions, ONLY to have the OMNIPOTENT(At Least He Thinks He Is)Host & Lead Producer of ChurchMilitant.com, Michael Voris, whose style is that of a Reality TV Talk Show Host(Think Jerry Springer, who grew up about a half mile from where I am in Queens), & often, Historically Inaccurate. He may be “The Modern Howard Beale”, if one remembers that oh so Prophetic Movie “Network.” Voris told Kandra that Kandra was wrong “As Usual.”
Just Like Voris’ Top 20 Worst Churchmen of The 20th Century, where one of The Worst wasn’t even a Bishop at any time in that Century, but only his personal favorite Target in this Century. I believe that you know who that Prince Of The Church is.

Dr John Rao is Right. Perhaps the Host of “The Vortex”, like other “Neo Catholics”, should get an honest job like “A Carnival Barker.”

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!
