Does Cardinal Roche channel New Age in New Mass with Hegelian “theology of the Church has changed”

Interview with Cardinal Roche From 10:18 to 11:00.

  • “The theology of the Church has changed; whereas before the priest represented, at a distance, all the people, they were channeled through this person who alone was celebrating the Mass: it is not only the priest who celebrates the liturgy but also those who are baptized with him, and that is an enormous statement to make.”

First of all, let’s turn to the “commemoration for the living” from the Roman Canon of the Traditional Latin Mass:

In a quick personal translation of this paragraph from the Traditional Latin Mass:

  • “Remember, Lord, your sons and daughters N. and N. and all gathered here, whose faith and devotion are known to you. For them, we offer you this sacrifice of praise or they offer it for themselves and all who are theirs, for the redemption of their souls, in hope of health and well-being, and offering their devotion to you, the eternal God, living and true.”

Let’s see… here’s the official translation of the relevant paragraph from the New Order of Mass:

  • “Remember, Lord, your servants N. and N. and all gathered here, whose faith and devotion are known to you. For them, we offer you this sacrifice of praise or they offer it for themselves and all who are dear to them, for the redemption of their souls, in hope of health and well-being, and paying their homage to you, the eternal God, living and true.”

Wait… What? That sounds quite familiar. Let’s see… what’s the Latin for the New Order of Mass?

  • “Meménto, Dómine, famulórum famularúmque tuarum N. et N. et ómnium circumstántium, quórum tibi fides cógnita est et nota devótio, pro quibus tibi offérimus: vel qui tibi ófferunt hoc sacrifícium laudis, pro se suísque ómnibus: pro redemptióne animárum suárum, pro spe salútis et incolumitátis suæ: tibíque reddunt vota sua ætérno Deo, vivo et vero.”

Hahahahahahaha! Those words from the New Order of Mass are absolutely verbatim, to the letter, with the words of the Traditional Latin Mass of the 1962 Roman Missal. So, does that mean that Cardinal Roche is, like, misrepresenting the facts? Maybe he’s having a diabetic episode and isn’t thinking straight.

Even though this is a poor example for him to say that the New Order of Mass and the Traditional Latin Mass have entirely different theologies, his overarching idea is mistaken, that the theology (read doctrine) underlying the Traditional Latin Mass is entirely different from the theology (read doctrine) of the New Order of Mass and, therefore, the Traditional Latin Mass with all of its concomitant theology must be flipped away by the spinning hands of the clock of history.

He’s trying to say that because he and Pope Francis are trashing the Traditional Latin Mass, it is therefore legitimate for he and Pope Francis to trash all the theology (read doctrine) of the Church in Judeo-Catholic religion, from Adam until today and onward.

Truth is One. Truth is Living: Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word of the Father. That Word of the Father is not a lie, a mistake. The Father doesn’t change His mind one fine day in eternity and say that he’s mistaken in speaking that One Word expressing Himself in the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity and must now speak an entirely different Word. No.

Jesus laying down Himself in Sacrifice for us, fulfilling His own justice to have mercy on us, taking our place, Innocent for the guilty, taking on the punishment we deserve so that He can command the Father: Father! Forgive them! is not now worthless and to be tossed away because we say – because we’re better because we live today – that there is no sin, and that therefore no repentance is needed, no forgiveness needs to be provided, and therefore that the Son of the Living God who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire is therefore a fool for having been tortured to death for us. “That’s all passé. We’re the ones, the only ones! Change the Mass! Change the theology! Change the truth! All is a lie!”

What’s Roche trying to say, that the ordained have no sacramental character different from that of the laity? I mean, who knows what he’s thinking. What I do know is that he thinks and says that the Traditional Latin Mass, you know, the Sacrifice of the Son of the Living God, has nothing to do with the life of the parish community. He’s hitting people over the head with that like any mafioso beating their own to death with a baseball bats. This is way to violent to watch, but truth be told, the insult these guys provide to Jesus’ being tortured to death for all of us is so very much worse:

If anyone is channeling anyone, it’s Cardinal Roche channeling himself. How ugly. How disgusting. How filthy.

In answer to Cardinal Roche’s charge, which is actually about the priest having his back to the people (which is rubrically correct in the New Order of Mass, btw), well, that “back to the people” thing isn’t the case at all. Quite the other way around. The priest is just like everyone else. All are facing the Sacrifice together. The priest and Christ’s faithful. As the Apocalypse says, we will all look on Him whom we have all pierced through. When the priest is simply taking his place with everyone else facing the Sacrifice, his importance disappears. He’s ordained to get himself the hell out of the way of Jesus the One High Priest. When the priest faces the people it is then that he himself becomes important. It all becomes a clown Mass overnight.

So, what kind of narcissism is really going on here?

Oh, and that mention of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel? Here’s the modus operandi of Cardinal Roche and Pope Francis, why they think that with the passing of time the theology of the Church (read doctrine) changes like any dialectical materialism that has nothing to do with God:

But instead, Verbum Domini manet in aeternum. The Word of the Lord remains for ever.

The Blah Blah Synod™: Why in hell do you want a voice when the Eternal Word is now Incarnate?

And the pressure is still on for me to participate in The Blah Blah Synod™. When I’m under enormous pressure like this, I get nostalgic and then entrench with the ferocity of the rigidity of the cross, you know, the old crux stat dum volvitur orbis: the cross stands steadfast while the world wildly spins away in its madness.

Some nostalgia: About 25 years ago, when I was pastor of a parish in a diocese on another part of the globe a bishop had written to me with bullying attitude, really pushing hard, extremely critical of my standing with the unmanipulatable Living Truth, Christ Jesus, it being that I was in solidarity with Jesus in His trials. I was literally insisting in my parish bulletins that any gray-area permitting abortion, euthanasia, or stating stupidity that God wasn’t really God, etc., was not to remain a gray-area in doctrine or morality, for that grayness would soon be colored blood red with the murder of Truth Himself, Christ Jesus. I wish I had kept my bulletins and the bishop’s letter, but I filed it away in a circular container so as to give it the attention it deserved.

Back story: This bishop was high up in the hierarchy of the top-down, not classless society, “Common Ground Initiative” of Cardinal Joseph Bernadine. He was extremely proud of being considered one of the greats of “The Initiative”, as it was nicknamed by in-the-know Prometheans. The Bishop insisted that all truths were automatically discredited in favor of dialogue, even those self-evident truths without which there is no communication possible, such as the principle of non-contradiction. Methodology, which is also (non)doctrine by the way, was that of the tyranny of relativism. With no reference to truth or logic, the only admissible absolute truth from which to begin was that there was no such thing as absolute truth, that being an absolute truth dictated to you by these relativistic tyrants.

The Blah Blah Synod™ is the reincarnation of The Common Ground Initiative.

Both are reincarnations of the Hegelian dialectic. Both are run by self-absorbed tyrants. Both utilize “the people”, who, however, don’t count, as they are cowed into a methodology that actually takes away their voice. “It’s dialogue!” the cows moo. “We have a voice!” It is exactly this which is clericalism in most refined form, at it’s most dangerous for the salvation of souls.

But look at that “We have a voice!” statement. Stare at it. “We have a voice!” Really? If you actually have a voice you just use it. You don’t waste your time announcing you have a voice, or get permission to have a voice. Why would you do that? To whom are you trying to prove something? Yourself? Someone else? To the tyrant? That means you’re fooling yourself and that you have no voice at all. But you’re soothing yourself in insisting you have a voice. But while you insist, you are actually making yourself voiceless. You are fitting in, conforming yourself to the lie that you have a voice in the hearing of the tyrant. It is still the tyrant who says you have a voice or not.

I’m going to use theological language here: What in hell is that anyway. Why in hell would you want to have a voice? Who in hell are you to think that having a having a voice is some kind of fulfillment? Christ Jesus is the Eternal Word spoken by our Heavenly Father. Get that? Our Heavenly Father is the One who has a voice. When our Heavenly Father speaks the Eternal Word, His dear Son, our Heavenly Father speaks the Truth, the Living Truth, unmanipulatable Truth. And you think your own voice has to be heard? No. Just speak the Living Truth of Jesus, but not by getting permission from some Hegelian dialectic tyrant, just do it. Speak the Living Truth of Jesus. Don’t submit yourself, don’t submit Jesus to someone’s yes or no. Don’t allow what you say to be cut down by the abortionists and homosexualists and the Women’s Ordination Conference and the demon-idol-worshippers by saying: “Now I finally have a voice in the dialogue!” That’s caving in. That’s rejecting Jesus, denying Jesus to His face.

The absolute and Living Truth who is Jesus Christ is not to be subjected to the approval or nuancing or changing or adding to or taking away from wrought by some soon-to-be-dead-anyway tyrant with tyrannical sycophants in his entourage.

Jesus Christ is King of kings, Lord of lords, Prince of the Most Profound Peace, Absolute and Living Truth. He cannot be manipulated, thrown away, then reconstructed on some killing fields “common ground”.

We are to proclaim and fully live and express in our lives without apology not our mind-game-reconstruction of tyrannical relativism, merely our fake-love, merely our fake-truth, but rather Jesus who is Living Truth is to be lived and expressed in our lives. We are to die to our own lust for our own tyrannical relativism and live for Christ Jesus. Forget our own voice submitted to liars. Let us be the megaphone for the Voice of our Heavenly Father who speaks Jesus through, with and in us to all so that we might go through, with and in Him to our Heavenly Father.

This unmanipulatable Living Truth of Jesus Christ does not fit in with the Hegelian dialectic, not even when it is sugar-coated with any Rahnerian evolutionary it’s-all-pantheistically-coming-together-on-the-horizon self-referential idiocy.

Jesus, in fact, does not make up any part of any dialogue. He is, by that very methodology, cast away. He’s a nothing, irrelevant, to be marginalized outside even of any existential peripheries.

Participating in The Blah Blah Synod™ is to participate in a methodology that in itself by definition rejects Jesus. The methodology is heretical. The Blah Blah Synod™ is heretical in and of itself.

People think that we should participate because we’ll at least have a say, have a voice heard, make our ♬feelings♬ ♬felt♬, because we’re entitled to do that and it makes us ♬feel♬ better because then we’ve done something.

Nope. All you’ve done in becoming part of the Hegelian dialectic is to smash Jesus down to the level of Hegelian dialectic, crucifying Jesus, saying that His Truth isn’t worthy of being proclaimed as Truth.

I will not comply. I will try to stand my ground, that blood red ground of Calvary, in solidarity with Mary, in solidarity with Jesus. I don’t want to go to hell for denying Jesus. I want to hear Jesus say of me, wretch that I am:

  • “You are the ones who have stood by Me in My trials, and I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father has bestowed one on Me” (Luke 22:28-29).

And I with for all y’all the same. Hail Mary…

The Blah Blah Synod™ / Error has no rights

Above, Pius X gets it right, that error has no rights.

Below, the Hegelian dialectic, which throws objective truth under the bus, especially in Pope Francis’ Rahnerian version of this (evolutionary pantheism), which he uses for his Blah Blah Synod™.

Error has no rights. Even Pope Francis’ Blah Blah Synod™ has no rights.
