Three Miracles On The 10th Sunday of Ordinary Time(2nd Sunday After Pentecost)

6 Jun

It was in the Old Testament Reading where The Prophet Elias(Elijah) came into a house where a widow’s young child had died.
He took the child into an upstairs room, put the child on a bed & put his body over the child Three Times. The child came back to life.
In The Gospel according to St Luke, the son of a Widow had died. Jesus came into the house and raised up the son.
Both are Miracles. Both prefigure the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Mother Mary Theotokos was also a Widow.
The Third Miracle occurs at EVERY Catholic Liturgy in The World, as the Offered Bread and Wine becomes The Body & Blood, Soul & Divinity, through the action of The Priest, acting in Christ’s Person as an Alter Christus. This does NOT occur in most Protestant Ecclesiastical Communities because most of these Communities have no VALIDLY Ordained Priesthood.

Vivat Christus Rex!

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!

“24”Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round III

14 Jan

This will NOT be a Live Streaming Time. And it will be on 1st Class Video Networks Vimeo & Gloria.tv, in HD 720p.

I choose NOT to utlize “The Clown Car” called You Tube. After attempting a Live Streaming Web Telecast on You Tube, I switched over to Ustream.tv, who are pros when it comes to this & we were on for one Three Minute Round. If Veetle had straightened out the problem of the Android 5 & 6 Systems, it would have been streamed there, live.

And broadcast quality on You Tube is never really that good. Besides, on You Tube, too many morons patrol the comboxes. I never have that Problem on Dailymotion. I never had that problem on Vimeo, though some brat in Middle Village, Queens bragged that she had my 1st Vimeo Account canceled. That 2011 Coverage can still be seen on Dailymotion.

In fact, the Vimeo Portion will be a Classic Black & White webcast, as an Artistic Experiment. Gloria.tv will be crystal clear & in Colour.

You might say that Catholic Apologists Louis Verrecchio & Michael J. Matt, serve as examples of utilizing Platforms other than You Tube. I plan to do this. The last time it was done was in 2011. It was successful outside of You Tube.

Here we go again, except that it’ll be a 1 Hour Webcast on both seervices.

I Don’t Recognize Ordinary Time As Catholic

11 Jan

For One Should see the Real Roman Latin Mass Calendar & realise that we are still in The Christmas Cycle.
Wednesday Is Still Baptism Of The Lord & that there are Sundays After Epiphany until Septuagesima Sunday on 01/31/2016, with the Final Christmas Cycle day of February 2nd, The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.

WE ARE ROMAN/LATIN RITE Catholics, NOT Presbyterians.

The Novus Ordo Mass Calendar Is

11 Jan

Reformed Protestant in Style, except for all The Added Saints.

The Presbyterian Style is where the term “Ordinary Time” comes from. From the Sunday after The Transferred Celebration of Epiphany, called “Baptism Of The Lord”, which is the End of The Octave of Epiphany(On The Tridentine Mass Calendar, Epiphany is still January 6th & Baptism Of The Lord is still January 13th), the 1st Sunday After Epiphany used to be Feast Of The Holy Family, and the Last Day of The Christmas Cycle(Tridentine) is Candlemas Day-The Feast Of The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple.
But, in the Interest of The False Ecumenism, there is a Table where the Priest has his back turned away from God, toward the Congregation, and Ordinary Time.

Funny, but The Anglican Communion, The Lutheran Communion & The Methodist Communities all have Advent, Christmastide, Epiphany, Time After Epiphany, & Time After Pentecost, so the Cycles come together, Both Christmas & Easter. Instead the Roman/Latin Rite tries to be something it isn’t & that is all Flavors of Heretical Protestant.
And most Novus Ordo Catholics think Protestant Style. And the Catechisis is AWFUL.

The Next Neo Catholic Polemicist who says that Vatican II has nothing to do with the Novus Ordo Mass, will be relieved of his hairpiece.
Capice?

THIS Is Epiphany Today, In The 12 Days Of Christmas

6 Jan

Though it was a Gospel Reading of Jesus Christ walking on water, it is part of The Revelation of Christ, as Epiphany means Revelation.
In The Byzantine Rite Catholic Churches, this day is called Theophany, which means Revelation(Those Byzantine Rite Catholic Churches on the Gregorian Calendar, celebrate today, while those on the Julian Calendar, celebrate on January 19th(Gregorian Calendar).

And those of Latino & Mediterranean Heritage, make this the Traditional Day of Gift Giving, symbolizing the Three Magi, who came with Gold, Frankinsense & Myrrh, for The Christ Child.
And with Theophany, Christ is revealed as He is Baptized in The River Jordan(Latin Rite celebrates The Baptism Of The Lord 7 Days After Epiphany, which is Octave Of The Epiphany).
The Traditional End of Christmas is The Feast Of The Presentation of The Child Jesus In The Temple on February 2nd(Candlemas Day).
So Christmastide has a little way to gp in the Latin & Byzantine Rites of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church.

So, Happy Christmastide!

“It’s Sad, Really”

24 Nov

The above is a comment made by Christopher Ferrara Esq on “The Remnant Forum” on You Tube, in regards to Michael Voris becoming Estranged from The Traditionalist Allies, who helped shape Michael’s Sensus Catholicus. I am using this comment to decry the Rather Massive Drop in crowds at St. Agnes on E43rd Street in Midtown Manhattan, from 2013 to 2015. It is from this Parish where I resumed a major return of My Sensus Catholicus in January, 2007, by going to a Tridentine Latin Mass(TLM), on a Sunday After Epiphany.
It was around The Advent Season, in fact the 1st Sunday of Advent(December 1st, 2013), when the Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass was “Wall To Wall” with Young People in a packed house.
And NOW? Where Did They All Go?
I recall the “Unofficial Master Of Ceremonies”, Mr David Lane of Woodside, Queens, passing Circulars after Mass. I asked as to why there is such a huge crowd, to which he remarked “The Latin Mass Is The Youth Movement of The Catholic Church.”
Fast Forward to 2015 & the Crowds were going much lower, though a young Dallas, Texas convert named Anne was there with a friend. A number of Pews were empty. I saw Anne at a TLM in 2014, as the crowds began dying down.
I may have gotten an inkling one Sunday, December 15th, 2013 at my 1st Ever Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom at St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the East Village on E7th Street, across from Mc Sorley’s Ale House. A Latino Male told me that he goes to Holy Innocents in Midtown Manhattan & they have The TLM there 7 Days a Week. I did a double with the TLM at St. John’s Cemetery Chapel in Middle Village, Queens & then the Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom. A certain # of Tridentine Latin Mass Catholics have often known about St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. Certain of the Holy Innocents Crew also utilize the Russian Greek Catholic Parish of St. Michael’s on Mulberry Street in the Former Chancery of The RC Archdiocese of New York, on the Grounds of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral Parish in Little Italy.

Today, much of the TLM Crowd at Holy Innocents is made up of former regulars at St. Agnes. Some felt uncomfortable at St. Agnes. I often see the St. Agnes Regulars at Holy Innocents during the week & a number of the Young People there. Potential Converts often come to the Sunday TLM at Holy Innocents.
The TLM came into St. Agnes in January, 1989. For awhile it was the ONLY TLM in NYC. Holy Innocents went with the TLM in 2009. It saved the Parish from Utter Oblivion. And it became The Centre of The TLM Movement, especially receiving huge Media Coverage because it was threatened with being merged or shut down.
There was Summorum Pontificum by Pope Benedict XVI on 07/07/07, which freed up the Offering of The TLM, by any Roman Rite Catholic Priest. In NYC the Mass grew. And in 2009, Holy Innocents joined the Tridentine Latin Mass. And this saved Holy Innocents.
But, I do say to those who want to give the TLM a shot to save one’s Sagging Faith, give St. Agnes a shot. You Will Love the TLM & the Great Conversations which follow it.
Give St. Agnes A Chance, People!

Deo Gratias!
