Cardinal Arthur Roche throwing the Traditionally offered Sacrifice of Jesus (TLM) out of parish churches:
- “The exclusion of the parish church is intended to affirm that the celebration of the Eucharist according to the previous rite, being a concession limited to these groups, is not part of the ordinary life of the parish community.”
In analyzing this, we see that the Jesus’ Sacrifice is inescapably reduced to vacuity, lowered to being a mere political football to kick into the faces of those you are bullying, isn’t that correct, Cardinal Arthur Roche? You disrespect Jesus to make a point, slap Jesus in the face to make a point, push Him down and out to make a point? And what would that point be, Cardinal Arthur Roche, that you’re an unbeliever?
If you spit, Cardinal Arthur Roche, so easily on Jesus in one rite or form of His Sacrifice, you are spitting on Jesus in all rites or forms outside or inside whatever church, are you not? After all, throwing Jesus out and spitting on Him for good measure is all about… throwing Jesus out and spitting on Him for good measure. It’s personal, with Jesus. It’s an affront to Him… and His dear Mother.
I don’t care what form or rite of the Most Holy Sacrifice of Jesus is being offered wherever in the parish by priests of whatever rite or with whatever form, and I don’t care if I know that such a Holy Mass is happening or not. Those logistics are not so important as that the Holy Sacrifice of Jesus has taken place, and that fact, that glorious event, has everything to do with the life of the parish. It cannot be otherwise.
As Saint Pio said:
- “It would be easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Mass.”
Dear Cardinal Arthur Roche, how could you possibly say that the Sacrifice of Jesus is ever irrelevant?
You are wrong, Cardinal Arthur Roche. Jesus is our life. Without Jesus you are not even a backwardist. You think that Hegelian-Rahnerianism dialectic has you move forward. It just brings you down. Come back to Jesus and go to heaven, your Eminence.
Now, here’s what is not Mass, but just a get-together with young people who love Jesus, who believe that Jesus is entirely relevant to them, that Jesus is their very life, you know, the life of the parish community. Get with Jesus, Cardinal Arthur Roche. He’s waiting for you in the confessional. And, yes, what you have said is objectively a sin and you do need to repent. Jesus’ Holy Sacrifice is always our life.
JESUS YOU ARE MY LIFE!
And you know what JPII did? He started bringing back the TLM. Yep. That’s what JPII did.
