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.

What Is Rarely Said In Novus Ordo Company

29 May

Sin, Hell and Purgatory are rarely mentioned, including in the Novus Ordo Version of Missa Pro Defunctis. That can also be said of Missa Memoriam in the Novus Ordo.
I was at a Mass of Christian Burial at Holy Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, Queens, for the Repose of The Soul of the Wife of an Active Member of the Ancient Order Of Hibernians.
It was a Celebration of the Woman’s Life. The Parish Church was packed to the Rafters. Beginning with a Novus Ordo Song, directed for the edification of The Assembly followed by Opening Prayers, it would be an experience not to be forgotten.
Both the “Ave Maria” and “Pie Jesus” were sung with Awe by a Young Lady. But what was Extremely Strange was the Responsorial Psalm, as that was sung to a Guitar, which I have never seen in my life at a Mass Of Christian Burial(Missa Requiem). The Farewell was “On Eagles Wings.”
Many received Holy Communion in the Hand, as it goes with Novus Ordo Territory.
The Neo Canonization is getting ridiculous at these Missae Novus Ordo. Prayer for The Soul of the Faithfully Departed is needed here.
For later in the day at Saint Matthias R C Church was a Tridentine Latin Mass. There, one could truly pray for the Departed’s Immortal Soul.Without Distraction.

The Major Error made in the Revision of The Offertory, was the Removal of The Prayers the Priest said for his Sins as well as for the the Souls of Both Living and Dead.
This was done in the “Spirit Of Vatican II”, so as not to offend Modernist Protestants, in the “False Ecumenism” infecting The Church, for the Last 50 Years, especially since Sunday, November 30th, 1969, when the Novus Ordo Mass was 1st Offered, Bad Translations and All.
In pleasing Modernist, Mainline Protestants, taking the Sacrifice out of The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, was and still is affecting the Faith of Roman/Latin Rite Catholics until this very day.

1967-The 1st Guitars Are Played At Mass

30 Nov

It was 1967 & The Vietnam War was in full stride. The Tridentine Form Mass in Vulgar Tongue was in use. In fact, everything went to Vulgar Tongue in 1967, except for the Solemn High Mass. In some Parishes, Tables were being used as Altars.
So when I went into the 7th Grade in September, 1967, there were further changes on the Horizon. Two Nuns donned the 1st Novus Ordo Habits. Religion became a mixture of Sociology and Political Science. And at Mass on Sunday, the 1st Guitars were Strummed. The “I, Mine, Me” Muzak reached into The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass in the Roman Rite. Welcome to the World of “The Greenwich Village Coffee House”, only that the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass was the Saving Grace, as this so called “Folk Music” was syrupy dreck. Stately Hymns such as “O Sacrament Most Holy” & “Humbly We Adore Thee”, were being replaced with “Kumbaya”, “Blowin’ In The Wind” and “Sons Of God, Hear His Holy Word”(Which was the 1st Quasi Folk Song to imply that the Novus Ordo Mass was coming, Table and All). And the Music was mostly “I Love Me.”
With the absence of the haunting silence during the Offertory and Consecration, here came the guitars. It was Preparation for what lie ahead, on Sunday, November 30th, 1969.
Then came the New Mass with Abridged Prayers, New Prayers and Modern, more syrupy Music. Fewer people came to Mass. Mass Schedules were cut at Parishes. Lines for The Sacrament of Penance were short. The young people, by and large, stopped going to Mass.

But with the Return of The Tridentine Latin Mass, young people started coming to Mass again.

Ahhh, But, Hope Springs Eternal!

Deo Gratias!
