Sacred Heart not depicted with Body (advice needed)

This picture was taken immediately before Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament about 4:00PM Divine Mercy Sunday at the end of our Divine Mercy Holy Hour, the third Holy Hour of the day in the parish.

We displaced, as it were, the Divine Mercy painting for emphasis. One priest I know, who hates the Divine Mercy, says that this painting is the worst thing ever in the history of art as it “blashemously” does not depict the Sacred Heart, just rays of light representing the blood and water which gushed from Jesus’ Heart when pierced through with the soldier’s gladius:

Anyway, that picture of Roman gladii is by Matthias Kabel on Wikipedia’s “Gladius.” Such swords were so heavy they could cut someone in half with one hit, so wide that the wound was at least as wide as a man’s hand. When Thomas put his hand into the side of Jesus he surely touched that Heart pierced through.

Anyway, yet another priest, a good friend, who loves the Divine Mercy, told me that Jesus told Saint Margaret Mary that His Heart is not to be depicted without the rest of the human nature of the Divine Person, such as with this image in the Major Papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome (on the epistle side of the Basilica):

This topic of the depiction of the Heart without the Body came up because I’m thinking of having a mosaic created for the front of the altar with the Two Hearts, something like this:

I would switch the places, left to right and vice versa with the two, and slightly overlap them, perhaps all told some 18″ wide.

My answer to the objection that the Sacred Heart is not to be depicted apart from the Body was the infant Jesus at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament:

But my priest friend said this was all good because, although apart from the chest, was with Jesus.

My response to was that my planned mosaic was all good because the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus, the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and in the Tabernacle, is absolutely present fully. :-)

Anyway, I’m wondering if any reader knows where it is that an account of Jesus giving such instructions to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque is to be found.

Eagle sighting, every day, but called “The Last”

Not my picture. I couldn’t get a picture of the one I saw, as I was driving at the time and he had been right over the top of the car. Massive white head, gargantuan wingspan, white tail. Yep.

The Bald Eagle, symbol of strength in freedom with God-given rights in the rule of law enshrined in the Constitution is refreshing to see amidst all the betrayal of these USA and of our military. There are so many, so high up, who are treasonous, who are intent on destroying this country, and for what? A couple of bucks from big money with which they can eat ice cream cones and drink from sippy cups while proving senility and dementia as marxist college kids do up subversion for him?

That’s a perpetual rant going on in my heart. But that betrayal of the “powers that be”, that violence against everyone from conception to death, dragging the world into persecution of the Church, fades into insignificance compared to the scandal and destruction of eternal souls by the pastors of the Church.

But that apostle and evangelist who has an eagle as a symbol always has encouragement for us daily at what is called the Last Gospel, exactly parallel with the Proto-Evangelium, the First Gospel of Genesis 3:15 and exactly parallel with the the Apocalypse, and is the Prologue of his Gospel:

  • In principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per Ipsum facta sunt, et sine Ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In Ipso vita erat, et vita erat Lux hominum. Et Lux in tenebris lucet et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen erat Iohannes. Hic venit in testimonium ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine ut omnes crederent per Illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit. In propria venit et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum dedit eis potestatem filios Dei, fieri his qui credunt in nomine Eius. Qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. ET VERBUM CARO FACTUM EST, ET HABITABIT IN NOBIS et vidimus gloriam eius, gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.
  • In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

When I see a Bald Eagle, that’s what flashes through heart and soul and mind.

How very sad: Same-sex mockery of the Sacrifice of the Mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica

Easter Monday witnessed a same-sex provocateur sing for some 80,000 Italian youth in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica. Here’s a screen shot of Rome Reports depicting some of those youngsters:

In Genesis, in the Gospels, the image of God is expressed in this universe as male-female-marriage-family. Encouraging same-sex sex among adolescents is to attack God’s image and is abuse of youngsters. How very sad.

This took place not far from the demon-idol altar, the altar of Jesus’ Sacrifice now given over to the abomination of desolation having been caused to be set up on that now besmirched Holy of Holies, the Pachamama to whom uncountable youth have been sacrificed. How very sad.

The Sacrifice of the Mass, the Last Supper united with Calvary, the Wedding Feast of the Lamb with His Immaculate Bride the Church, with those wedding vows of His at the Consecration, my body given for you in sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in sacrifice, is the redemption of the image of God. But this redemption is insulted with encouragement of same-sex sex. The Wedding Feast of the Lamb is insulted with the encouragement of same-sex sex. The Most Blessed Sacrament is insulted with the encouragement of same-sex sex. How very sad.

I recall a bishop who was asked what could be done for youth who don’t even know what a church is. He responded instantly: “Offer the Holy Mass better.” Yes. Reverence for God, taking God as deadly seriously as He takes us in His being tortured to death for us, for our redemption, for the restoration of the image of God within us, is impressive to youth. They are enthralled. They assent to the faith being given to them.

The antidote to the anti-image-of-God crowd is to look to the restoration of the image of God at the Wedding Feast of the Lamb united with the Sacrifice of Calvary.

But know this, when youth convert to follow Jesus they do so with enthusiasm, keeping the commandments because they love Christ Jesus, and that cannot be ripped away from them. Now they will belong to Jesus. But where are the shepherds of Jesus’ Little Flock who will lead them to Jesus?

LifeSite ran an article opining that regardless of any LGBT content of the youth get-together at Saint Peter’s Basilica, what’s really sad is that the Holy See thinks that this is what they have to do to be relevant, when, of course, this is what makes them all entirely irrelevant.

But I think it’s worse than that. I’m opining that this is a purposed insult to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. This insult of the Mass is consistent with, say, with the attack on the Mass in Traditionis custodes.

Pray for our youth. Pray for priests. Pray for bishops. Pray that all bow in reverence before Jesus, and follow Jesus. Hail Mary…

Consecrations at Mass in various languages in various rites because, you know, !tradition!

  • “The words of Consecration, the Epiclesis (the invocation of the Holy Spirit), as well as certain hymns and blessings, should be in the original Aramaic, the language spoken by Christ, to remind the faithful of their Maronite heritage and traditions.” https://www.stgeorgesa.org/maronite-divine-liturgy
  • “The languages used in the Maronite Liturgy are ancient Syro-Aramaic for certain fixed parts (the Trisagion, Qadishat aloho; the two approaches to the Altar; and the Consecration of the bread and wine), along with Arabic, and the other local languages of the countries of expansion.” https://www.maronites.ca/maronites/maronite-liturgy/

That’s just an example of one of numerous liturgical rites right around the world. I could provide many more. How’s that? Because religion and tradition go together very deeply in the human spirit. Of course they do. This is how God made us. Let’s see what our Jewish friends have to sing about all kinds of tradition:

For myself, if I’m offering the New Order of Holy Mass in Latin or English or Spanish or German or Italian or French or Hebrew (which Hebrew Mass I’ve memorized from beginning to end decades ago) or whatever other language, the readings are in that particular modern vernacular, and the preaching is in whatever vernacular language as well. Without any particular permission of the bishop, any priest of the Roman Rite can offer the Novus Ordo Missae in Latin, including the readings and the preaching, whatever is pastorally indicated, right? Whatever.

In this parish, weekday and weekend Masses up at the mission church are entirely are exclusively in English. The Novus Ordo. The Saturday vigil Mass at the main parish church in is in Spanish, all of them, exclusively. Well, almost….

At various times during the year there are “mixed” Masses in English and Spanish, and many other languages. For instance, Palm Sunday Mass and Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper, and the Good Friday Service, and the Easter Vigil were, this year, as in all other years, all a mix of Spanish and English and Latin (I sang, as always, the Exultet, in Latin and sang the “Ite Missa est. Alleluia. Alleluia” in Latin. Oh, sorry! “Alleluia” is a Hebrew imperative verb: Praise ye the Lord! “Amen” is also Hebrew for “So may it be.” “Kyrie eleison” is Greek. Such multi-lingual liberalism! The “narrator” for the reading of the Passion Narrative on both Palm Sunday and Good Friday was a fine gentleman from another liturgical rite altogether. Both Passion Narratives from the Gospels were all in English. It’s all good. But wait, depending on which Gospel is used, we sometimes hear: “My God! My God! Why have you forsaken me!”, either in Hebrew or in Aramaic. Yikes! So confusing for those who feel entitled to hear every single word they ever hear in a language of their choice. It’s like trying to guess someone’s pronouns.

I mean, whatever about the languages used, the one thing important, the One Person who is important is Jesus and His Sacrifice of the Mass.

Having said all that, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is also offered in Latin except, you know, the usual bits in Hebrew and Greek, etc. And whether this is the Novus Ordo in Latin or the TLM, all readings are pronounced in the vernacular and the preaching is in the vernacular.

Meanwhile, yours truly, although Latin Rite by baptism and practice, and growing up in the North Woods of Minnesota with moose and timber wolves and German speakers as companions, has spent a large part of his life learning languages, living and dead, of the Holy Land and the Middle East including Syriac and Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew (biblical and modern), Latin and so many others. An even longer part of my life was spent getting to know the Sacred Scriptures, also by way of historical philology, with my studies also being in Jerusalem and the West Bank. I went up as far as Lebanon and the West Bank and far into Egypt as well. Over time, I became convinced, as I still am today, that however expert Jesus was in speaking Aramaic from the street kids in Nazareth, and Arabic from His exile into Egypt, and of course, the languages of commerce both of Greek and the ever so vulgar (common) language of Latin, it is nevertheless true that at the greatest fulfillment of the entirety of God’s interventions upon this earth at the Last Supper united with Calvary, the New Covenant prophesied by Jeremiah, and with the action of the Suffering Servant on Calvary prophesied by Isaiah… to me it is obvious that Jesus would use, in this Supreme Liturgy of the Last Supper, the ultimate Sacrifice of all times and places, the ultimate and supreme liturgical language of Hebrew, and not some cool dialect with which He was also familiar. The chances that Jesus used Hebrew at the Last Supper is fully 100%. Just my opinion. Sorry.

But – Hey! – I’m no liturgist. What do I know? I’ll tell you what I know. I know that the Sacred Liturgy belongs not to any priest, nor to any Patriarch, nor to any bishop (not even to the bishop of Rome), but rather belongs, in whatever liturgical rite, to the entire Body of Christ, of which we, the members, have Christ Jesus Himself as the Head of that Body. The Holy Mass, the consecrations, specifically belong to Jesus. Those consecrations are defined by Pope Benedict as the lex orandi, the Law of Prayer, for all Liturgical Rites, and that pronouncement of Benedict is cited by Pope Francis in Traditionis Custodes and its accompanying letter to the bishops. Therefore, the universal law of the Church is to be followed regarding those consecrations. They are most sacred. If your rite instructs you to use Aramaic, do it! If your rite provides that you use Latin for pastoral reasons or another language for pastoral reasons, by all means, do so. The consecrations are, in se, whatever language they are in, the very Law of Prayer from which we get the lex credendi, the Law of believing. No bishop has the right to change the rites at whim, acting ultra vires, acting beyond their powers. If Aramaic is provided for that rite, no bishop or Patriarch of that rite can forbid it. If Latin or other languages are provided for, say, the Latin rite, no bishop forbid those languages. And, for that matter, no priest has this right to do whatever he wants. And no layman has any right to coerce, or extort, or bribe, or intimidate, or threaten, or demean or humiliate or slander any bishop or priest so as to force him to change the universal law of the Church regarding the Consecrations at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

But – Hey! – I’m no liturgist. What do I know? I’ll tell you what I know. I know that the very diverse rites used in Holy Mass are to be respected, so that the rite of, just to give another example, that of St John Chrysostom is to be respected, as is, for instance, that of the Roman rite of the much larger Latin rite (I think there were dozens of Latin rites at one time). This respect for all rites right around the world is enshrined in the laws of the Church, the Canon Law of the Latin Rite and the Oriental Code for so many others of our dear brothers and sisters throughout the world.

In other words, those of the Eastern rites have no right, as it were, to bribe or coerce or extort those of the Roman rite to celebrate Holy Mass according to the whims of the Eastern rites, and vice versa. Right? Yep. Everyone has the right to be free to follow faithfully his own rite. As it should be. I mean, what if I were to go to, I don’t know, say, Lebanon (because I’ve actually been invited to go and take up a parish there[!] already decades ago) and then, as a simple priest, surprise surprise, command the revered Patriarch to pronounce the words of the Consecrations in a low voice and in Latin? They would laugh at me, right? And probably excommunicate me. And rightly so. But what if I said that – Hey! – I’m me, so all y’all have to change your rites because I have entitled rights as a North Woods boy from Minnesota who grew up with moose and wolves and German speakers! At that point I think they would have, as Saint Benedict said, two stout brothers explain the matter to me. And then I would say, “Finally! Someone’s respecting their rites! I love it!”

And I’ll tell you what, however much, say, individual lay members of one rite want to kick in the face those priests and bishops who belong to another rite, it is the most reverend bishops of those other rites who will step up to smack down their own recalcitrant members, telling their own recalcitrant members to stick to the affairs of their own rites instead of interfering with the rights of the rites of others around the world. I mean, if I, a simple priest, were to insist that no Eastern Rites anywhere in Western North Carolina are to be allowed to use Greek or Aramaic or whatever at the Consecrations at Holy Mass, well, my own bishop of my own rite would happily smack me down. And rightly so. That would be the right thing to do.

Finally, just to say it. There is something that happens at every Holy Mass when the priest recites the Consecrations, the wedding vows, really, of Jesus, regardless of the language used:

Father George the newbie prepper burns sacred oils, gets great prepper idea

That’s the little heap of cotton that was drenched in the “Oil of the Sick” (Oleum infirmorum), taken out of the “stock” used uncountable times this past year for the Last Rites. I’m sure the CDC would have comments to make about that. I’d have plenty of commentary to make right back at them. At any rate, I had to top off the “stock” many times.

The old cotton and oil is burned every year after the Chrism Mass, when new cotton and newly blessed Oil of the Sick is placed in the “stock.” That little fire, on tinfoil, is in the chapel of the rectory. The painting of Jesus is by a one-time parishioner just to the side of the Altar of Sacrifice. The subsequent dust gets washed down the Sacrarium.

Meanwhile, the containers of oil (oil of the sick, oil of catechumens, and the Sacred Chrism) from the Chrism Mass the previous year were poured out over the wood for the Easter fire at Easter Vigil, and the little plastic containers were thrown in as well. We didn’t have an explosively large Easter fire this year, just bigger than most I’ve ever seen anywhere, and very “solid” for a fire, meaning big chunks of wood burning really well.

Prepper idea: The prepper idea useful for, say, starting a campfire in wet conditions, is to use a fire starter made up of a cotton ball with a glop of petroleum jelly, neatly wrapped in tinfoil until ready for use. Scrape some magnesium on top of that, spark it, and place the whole thing under the bits of kindling that you have. It burns and burns with a sturdy flame. Easy. Efficient. That would get, for instance, my homemade rocket stove flaming up in no time, every time.

Father Michael Rowe and Saint Athanasius

LifeSite has a good article on the machinations hurting the Latin Mass community and hurting Father Michael Rowe. I met Father Rowe a number of times decades ago. Very enthusiastic for the faith. I hate that this is happening to him and to the faithful. I recall the letter of Saint Athanasius to his flock:

  • “May God console you! …What saddens you …is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises, but you have the apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle-the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? True, the premises are good when the apostolic Faith is preached there; they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way …You are the ones who are happy: you who remain within the church by your faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis. No one, ever, will prevail against your faith, beloved brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day. Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”

Here’s a recent Mass:

These are just good Catholics. Why bother them? Their church is more than doing well. They made untold capital improvements with really a lot of money. This is just so sad. A sign of the times.

Latin & ad orientem forbidden in Novus Ordo? Since when is acting ultra vires legit?

I’m that overwhelmed altar boy. I’m that priest offering Mass in Latin. But it seems that every day (Cardinal)(Arch)bishops are dictatorially, tyrannically forbidding Latin and ad orientem worship in the Novus Ordo, which directly contradicts the validly celebrated ecumenical council of Vatican II and directly contradicts both the Institution of the Missal (otherwise called the GIRM) and also the in-line rubrics printed in the Altar Missal, not to mention Post-Conciliar Papal interventions such as Paul VI’s Iubilate Deo, none of which was never rescinded. These (Cardinal)(Arch)bishops hypocritically shriek: “To hell with Vatican II and all post-Conciliar reform! I’m the one! I’m the only one!”

So, as (Cardinal)(Arch)bishops forbid such things, the question is this: can they do this legitimately? Are they acting ultra vires, beyond their powers?

The answer comes from expert Canon Lawyers and Liturgists. No. It’s not legit. But then they are quick to add: “But if you don’t submit to their tyrannical hatred of Christ, they have a thousand ways to F*** you up. And they will. And they have always done this: “No one in Rome is going to take the side of the law, or stand with Christ Jesus, and certainly they will not come to your rescue. Get over it.”

So, my question is this: If everyone is compliant with effeminate (Cardinal)(Arch)bishops steamrolling over the Sacred Liturgy, over Christ, over Jesus’ priests, who is it that will ever stand alongside Jesus in His trials? Anyone? Ever? Jesus doesn’t say, “Blessed are you who ran away so as not to stand with me in my trials.” No. He said: “Blessed are you who have stood by me in my trials.”

TLM cool rubrics on St Peter & St Paul

A priest who offers the TLM rejoices to be the beneficiary of a continuous river of the Living Tradition of the Church flowing into one’s heart and soul and mind. The outward rubrics and words and actions of the TLM act as invitation into that Sacred Tradition. One’s response in assenting to the faith is like unto the littlest of children squealing in joy in recognition that the love into which one is drawn is – how to say it? – is that to which one has always been drawn by the Lord. It is a homecoming in the sense of being at home for the first time, knowing that one belongs to the great family of faith whom you love and who loves you. This is not some sort of political ideology as it called by Pope Francis so coldly, so cruelly. No.

I am a newbie to such things, so perhaps my rejoicing is too exuberant, but, no, one can never rejoice in the Sacred Mysteries too much. Here’s what happened:

Here I am, offering Holy Mass on the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul, getting to the end of the collect, the opening prayer, all about Saint Paul, as one might expect, and the rubric states that one is to continue without concluding that prayer so as to begin another another prayer all about Saint Peter, only then adding the conclusion for both together. Usually the first prayer has it’s own conclusion and then whatever other even multiple commemorations are brought together with their own singular conclusion. So, this is quite jarring in it’s childlike simplicity. I almost laughed out loud. This is so cool.

Here’s the deal. Peter was Pope while Paul was merely Saul. Peter was already believing in the Jewish Messiah, Christ Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception at the time Saul became a believer. The tables would, however, be turned. Now the believing Paul was going to have to reprimand extremely severely the one upon who Jesus founded His Church, for Peter had not just become idiot Peter, but Peter who “stood condemned” (Galatians 2:11). Condemned means condemned to hell. Put it this way:

  • If Paul had not reprimanded Peter, Paul would go to hell for not reprimanding Peter, and Peter would continue on his merry way of political correctness right to hell (as judged by the Holy Spirit, and the Scriptures cannot lie).
  • If Paul had reprimanded Peter, as he indeed did, then he would continue on as Saint Paul, even if Peter did not take the correction and so continued on his way to hell.
  • We rejoice both that Paul reprimanded Peter and that Peter stood corrected, with now both being saints.

This is also true for the Secret Prayer and the Prayer after Communion. Two prayers with one conclusion each time.

Not only that, but on the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter a month later the same thing happens, but in reverse. There is a prayer involving firstly Saint Peter, and then Saint Paul, but under one conclusion, for the Collect, the Secret, the Prayer after Communion.

It’s so very Catholic to correct and admonish one another. We must help each other get to heaven.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of blustering going on these days. There is horrific heresy and blasphemy and idolatry and leading people into sin and the constant attacks on doctrine and morality and liturgy and the spiritual life from the powers that be across the pond. You offer a correction “to his face” as Paul says of his correction of Peter, but these days you are met with effeminate butt hurt tantrums. Whatever. I don’t care about hurt feelings. I care about helping people get to heaven, even if they don’t want that help right now. Parrhesia, anyone?

But wait, there’s more! And the more is what those who attack the faith say they want. Paul brings Peter back into unity with divinely revealed faith. We find out unity in the Living Truth who is Christ Jesus.

And that’s why you never hear anything good about Jesus which isn’t ambiguous or immediately contradicted in obscene ways. They say Jesus is not the Way, not the Truth, not the Life.

And mind you, I’m not being hateful or causing hate. Rather, they have rejected Jesus and I’m just pointing that out. Those who hate the truth and are always spouting lies hate it when you repeat back to them what they say and do. Whatever with them…

I will stay with Jesus who is personally the Way, the Truth, the Life.

Clericalism = Liturgical Abuse. Pope Francis’ liturgical abuse defines clericalism

Pope Francis says that he is against liturgical abuse. But he is by far the worst offender.

The Lord’s Little Flock has a right by way of the Blood of the Lamb to the Liturgy offered without the abuse of priests whose liturgical abuse screams “Look at me! Look at me!” No, we must look to Christ Jesus. Only He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, who draws us to Himself on the Cross, on Calvary. But you would never know about Jesus with the demon-idol worship of Pope Francis.

Using Francis against himself for the TLM. Sardonic humor, incisive truth. Yikes!

Thanks go to the many who collaborated to bring this extremely helpful if utterly sardonic extended bit of humor to light. Even the length is cynically sarcastic, mimicking the useless verbosity of the Bergoglio-esque modus operandi. One is overwhelmed, suffocated, convinced by the massive weight of the horror, the truth, setting one free, ever so humorous, but ever so sad. But I love it. Totally.


Ultimately, is this useful? Should this actually be used against the insistence of some (arch)episcopal sycophant of Francis? I mean, it would be difficult for, say, a Cardinal Cupich to deny the truths of this humor. But do we set up a precedent? Are we to be “disobedient” with sarcasm?

I mean, I don’t know, let’s figure this out. What is the law when the mens legislatoris (the mind, the intention, of the legislator) is so extremely, excruciatingly clear regardless of what some “It’s-only-the-text-of-the-actual-precept-canon-lawyer” has to say?

I would challenge any (arch)bishop and/or Canon lawyer to read that piece linked above. It’s humorous, but there is a deadly, deadly, deadly serious side to it. The accuracy and completeness and nuance of the citations are stunning, overwhelming. This is academia at it’s best, interpretation of the law at its best. This goes right to the heart of the Church, the Sacred Heart of the Church. This is about the salvation of souls. Sometimes humor speaks more loudly than direct commentary. But this is all direct commentary simultaneously. Yikes! Congratulations to this author, to the translator, to the publisher. Awesome. Great work.

The author, by the way, has been out in the peripheries more than Bergoglio could ever dream of being out in any peripheries. This guy absolutely cares for the sheep and lambs of the Lord’s Little Flock in every way. He gets it. The “authenticity” of this guy makes him someone to be reckoned with. He’s a giant of a Catholic among Catholics. And he has all the degrees in the world. All the street-cred of a true believer.

And after wading though this, I’m quite convinced that this sarcasm is also intended by Francis and +Roche. In other words, for Francis and +Roche, this is what is actually happening:

  • “If you conservative idiots are so stupid as to take Traditionis custodes and the Responses to the Dubia by the CDW seriously, then you’re not even worth taking seriously. Go ahead and hyper-obey, all angry and cynical, which is where we want you to be. But if all y’all are smart enough to catch on to our “no-law-is-a-good-law” way of going about things, then, by all means, we got you where we want you. Go ahead and do whatever you want with the TLM. Celebrate it all the time. We don’t care. That’s not the point. What we want is for you to ignore all law, to ignore the Church, to get into the habit of ignoring any Pope who comes along in the future. We are baiting you, and you have taken the bait. Hahahahaha!”

But what Francis and +Roche don’t understand is that true believers have the wisdom to see through the demonic cynicism. We will remain believers. We will continue to follow all just laws, all just precepts. We will continue to follow Jesus. We won’t be doing any demon idol worship. And Jesus has the last laugh as we use Francis and +Roche against themselves and still remain with Jesus. :-)

So, just to be clear: There is no TLM or any Sacrament or Sacramental of the Ancient Rite which is either invalid or illicit. We know the mens legislatoris, diabolically cynical as it might be. It’s all gaslighting. To them, it’s humorous. But I’ll remain deadly serious about the salvation of souls with Jesus, who was absolutely deadly serious.

Can you imagine saying Holy Mass on the front lines for the guys and putting the demon-idol Pachamama in front of them? I can’t. I won’t. The demonic hierarchy can go to their own place. I will not follow. I will remain with Jesus, by His grace, in His joy.

+Cupich priest Pfleger’s Pachamama canoe?

Front view above, side view below.

Children are sacrificed to Pachamama. This is unfortunate but passes as acceptable Novus Ordo Mass in the Archdiocese of Chicago, where the fabulous +Blase Cupich blesses the pagan demon Nian, to sets about eating children in that monster demon lore.

And, yes, Fr Pfleger seems to be wearing the broken-cross “peace” sign.

This is the Novus Ordo in Chicago. Nothing to see here, folks. But don’t dare to use the Ancient Rite for the Sacrifice of the Mass. The all tolerant fabulous +Blase Cupich will hunt you down. End of you. To survive as a priest in Chicago, you have to give a nod to child-destroying demons. And +Blase is on a rampage hunting priests down in other places. I don’t care. I’ll stand with Jesus. Not +Blase and his very many henchmen both here in these USA and across the pond.

Demon-Blessing-Mass of New Novus Ordo. To hell with your demons, +Blase Cupich.

Novus Ordo Mass in the Archdiocese of Chicago with Cardinal Blase Cupich presiding. In the video above he presides over the blessing of the Chinese lion demon Nian. He’s done this many times through the years. With this blessing, the great friend of Pope Francis and world class enemy of the Traditional Latin Mass, is having the idol thing channel the demon Nian, whose usual escapades include eating human beings, particularly children. Just like Pachamama. Oldsters might remember Shirley MacLaine up top Machu Picchu channeling spirits. Maybe the greatest of all Princes of the Catholic Church, the fabulous +Blase Cupich wants to be hip and famous like her!

Red clothing and loud noises are supposed to scare Nian away. But Nian is confused, running in circles, until Nian spots his friend, the effervescent Blase! It hotly desires a blessing from the Cardinal so as… what?… so as not to be scared away? And why would anyone want to bless this monstrous demon thing and bring it to to life? To appease it, so that it won’t eat human beings, particularly children? Typical pagan sycophancy to demons. Bribe them, appease them, and then they murder you anyway, you know, just to encourage more bribes next year as well. Demon-Mafia. What this means is that demons are more powerful than God Himself. This is blasphemy. This is idol worship. This is scandal on a grand scale.

Meanwhile, the ultra fabulous and greatest of all Cardinals, +Blase Cupich, is kicking the Traditional Latin Mass, kicking Jesus in the face, punishing those who believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, trolling, mocking those who are humbly thankful to Jesus for His Sacrifice, for the lex orandi, the law of prayer.

Do you see how the law of prayer is the source of the lex credendi, the law of believing? The hipster channeling master, +Cupich, instead ever so hotly desires to the presence of demons who eat children for breakfast, because that’s the most respected, highest liturgy of the Church? Coming to a church hopefully not near to you. Listen up all you fabulous (arch)bishops, it certainly ain’t gonna happen here in my parish, not on my watch.

Oh, wait! This monster-demon is from China, like the Wuhan virus, the latter of which, through “vaccines”, devours children. And that’s all blessed and required by +Cupich, the fabulous ecclesiastic with his forced “vaccine” mandates of his priests. Yep.

You pagan, demon-worshipping (arch)bishops! What the hell is the matter with you? Convert now, because you stand condemned (Galatians 2:11).

  • “But Father George! Father George! You don’t understand! In criticizing this most honorable prince of the Church, the fabulous +Blase Cupich, you’re committing the most grievous mortal sin against being a man of consensus as if little you have the entitled right not to be a sycophant as is required by, um, you know, like, by stuff, you know, our liturgies and stuff, like inclusive Nian who, like, dances and stuff, so it’s official!”

What? So, let’s cite that passage once again for those of short memory:

  • “When Cephas came to Antioch, however, I opposed him to his face, because he stood to be condemned” (Galatians 2:11).

Here’s the deal: Pope Francis said that he doesn’t like intolerable abuses of the Novus Ordo. But this is meaningless, and the fabulous +Blase knows it, because Pope Francis committed the worst liturgical abuse in the history of Judeo-Catholicism when he caused for all the world to see the establishment of the abomination of desolation, the demon-goddess Pachamama, to whom children are sacrificed, on the Holy of Holies, the Altar of Jesus’ own Sacrifice in Saint Peter’s Basilica. Nothing can be considered an abuse after that, well, except offering Holy Mass ad orientem (instead of the priest screaming LOOK AT ME!), except using Gregorian chant, except using Latin, etc.

So, I ask, what is the Novus Ordo? And, by the way, what is Vatican II? What is the “spirit” of Vatican II? What is the actual content of Vatican II? What is the dogmatic teaching of Vatican II? Tell me, you fraudulent (arch)bishops. You don’t know, do you? You can’t translate the actual documents and tell us what the “Fathers of the Council” thought about the actual words and phrases and paragraphs and articles and documents and decrees and constitutions: you can’t tell us why so many did NOT sign such things but were not disciplined and tortured until they should put their signatures down under duress, but now you demand all sign off on every jot and tittle, not of Divine Revelation, but of some documents that are so purposed to be ambiguous that no one knows what they mean. For me, I haven’t read the content of Vatican II in a long time, very many decades. I never read all of it in Latin. I’ve only read some parts of some of the schemata, and I’m not aware of all the politics and backroom maneuvering in those years… Nobody does.

But I’ll tell you this, the Holy Mass offered right throughout the entire Council by all Council Fathers without exception was the Ancient Rite of the Mass. You didn’t even know that, did you? You didn’t know that the Mass of Vatican II was the Ancient Rite of Mass, the TLM, did you?

So, why don’t all of you go ahead and accompany your demons to their own place? Let the Lord’s Little Flock honor the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception the best way we know how, in His Holy Sacrifice in the Ancient Rite whose basic form surely goes right back into the first century right to the Apostles themselves, and back to Jesus for the consecrations. That Ancient Rite is said by the blasphemers and demon worshippers not to be a manifestation of the Roman Rite in any way whatsoever, that it is therefore invalid, a wrong headed symbol of bygone days that we have surpassed in our Hegelian Rahnerianism, that it is not to interfere with the life of the parish.

I’m sick of all the demon worshipping. Ain’t gonna happen in my parish. Not on my watch.

You want the Mass of Vatican II? Great! That’s the Traditional Latin Mass, ad orientem, in Latin. And… and… we’re gearing up for Gregorian Chant. And the preaching that takes place? It’s by the priest, and it’s about all that which is doctrine, morality, what happens in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It’s about Confession, the Eucharist, the Rosary. It’s about staying faithful against all the perversion and aggression of the fallen world and fallen individuals said to be in the Church. It’s about Christ Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception. That’s the Mass of Vatican II I want.

Disobedience to Traditionis custodes and Dubia: interdicts and other penalties

  • Canon 1373 – A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.

Some notes on terminology:

  • “animosities” – This generally refers to riling people’s emotions to such a point that their emotions rule their reasoning capacities. We would normally call this inciting prejudice. However, this wouldn’t be an evil if it were to be directed at someone who, until he absolutely repented, couldn’t be trusted for anything whatsoever, such as Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao. So, the question is as to whether there is that which, in the law itself, helps us to distinguish what kind of animosity it is with which we’re dealing.
  • “hatred” – “In the words of the Scriptures, “I loved Jacob, but I rejected Esau” (Romans 9:13). God hates the sin and the sinner in such manner that He provides all that is needed for the sinner to repent and stop the sin, stop being a sinner, now being loved. Hatred can be a tool of love. So, the question is as to whether there is that which, in the law itself, helps us to distinguish what kind of hatred it is with which we’re dealing.

Distinguishing factors in the law:

Whenever we find a subordinating conjunction, we must needs pay attention, as it promises to make the necessary distinction for us. We find the legally significant word – “because” – in this law. Thus: “BECAUSE of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them.”

The punishment to be imposed irregardless of the simple fact of inciting animosities or hatred or to also to provoke disobedience in those who are subject to such acts of power or ecclesiastical ministry is, however, subject to the veracity of “some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry” actually being legitimate, that is, lawful, and does not issue from someone acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, beyond their lawful capacities. Did Pope or Prefect or some subsequent bishop anywhere in the world act ultra vires, beyond their powers?

Penalties imposed:

Once it is decided by an ecclesiastical court that no one was acting ultra vires and that the alleged perpetrator is actually guilty of a crime before God and man, then “an interdict or other just penalties” are to be imposed.

As even Wikipedia points out, “an interdict today has the effect of forbidding the person concerned to celebrate or receive any of the sacraments, including the Eucharist, or to celebrate the sacramentals.” That can be tantamount to condemning someone to hell. And I have always said that a “just penalty” would include whatever comes to the imagination of the powers that be, including burning at the stake.

Mind you, for many decades untold numbers of priests have NOT been put under interdict – as that might involve discovery on both sides as appeals are made – but rather priests have simply been marginalized with no due process and with no court at all. And anyway, how do you make an appeal when everyone on up the ladder have already been acting ultra vires on the very point under contention?

So, priests simply trying to do the right thing have been taken out of assignments, their living quarters taken away, having their pay cut, then their insurance cut, and then a request for the priest’s dismissal from the clerical state is made to the Holy See because the cleric is a “liability.” That’s granted, though usually with a fake ultimatum: Either you will spend the rest of your life in a “treatment center” for nothing that needs treatment (fidelity to Christ and the legitimate authority of the Church) or you will be dismissed from the clerical state. Just like that.

Oh, and that picture at the top? That’s the chopping block and axe used for the decapitation of Saint Thomas More in the most civilized of societies, of course. “Most civilized” always refers to the most blood-thirsty.

Anyway, back to any priest thinking about disobedience to Traditionis custodes and to the “legislation” of the answers to the CDW Dubia. I always go back to Aquinas on the law: If a law is unjust, is evil, it is therefore not a law, and is not to be obeyed or disobeyed, but ignored, for it is nothing. Of course, no sycophantic powers that be are going to listen to Aquinas, or Natural Law, or Divine Law, or Canon Law. No, they’re just going to make you feel their power, like Judas demonstrated his “power” over Jesus.

We can pray that bishops invoke Canon 87 in favor of the salvation of souls. One would think that this is what it’s all about, right?

Do I think that Pope Francis and the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW) are acting ultra vires with Traditionis custodes and the Dubia responses? Yes. I’ve written on this quite extensively. I think these documents of Traditionis custodes and the Dubia reponses are an insult to Christ Jesus and His Sacrifice of the Mass and that, in this case, the underlying evil is such that it colors any obedience to the unjust law, such that one is complicit in the underlying evil.

By the by, there are other things

  • I’m not going to give absolution to someone who has no repentance, having them receive Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin. That’s called sollicitation to sin, an automatic excommunication for a priest hearing confessions. I’m not going to do it. Any demand that I do such a horrible thing is illegitimate, acting ultra vires. I’m just going to ignore that.
  • I’m not going to participate in the Synod on Synodality. I’ll have nothing to do with New Ways Ministries other than to tell them that they must repent. That’s it. They know the doctrine and morality of the Church. They know the Sacred Scriptures. The Holy See gives them a stage to promote their horror. To demand that I participate in this is acting ultra vires. I’m just going to ignore that. — et cetera, almost ad infinitum

As Thomas More said at the end of the trial by which he was unjustly condemned, it wasn’t because of his not taking any oath that he condemned, but rather, and simply, it was because of the marriage. And in this case, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we are dealing with the marriage of Christ and His Immaculate Bride, the Church, with the consecrations being His wedding vows. But the response I’ve heard right through the decades is that we are NOT to use our reason and our faith, but we are instead to have Jesus’ Truth filtered for us by brave theologians. Pfft.

This isn’t rocket science. Insulting Jesus is bad and evil and I’m not going there. No discussion.

What I have done here is to invoke the legitimacy of Galatians 2:11:

  • “When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.”

Invoking Galatians 2:11 is a supreme act of charity and justice and mercy. Am I to be condemned for that? Jesus will also have something to say about any powers that be acting ultra vires.

I don’t care about unjust penalties in this life, whatever the cost. I want to go to heaven.

Disobeying Traditionis custodes and Dubia legislation because theology is wrong?

You have heard that it was said that one cannot at all disobey a precept in it’s praxis if what is to be done is at least amoral, not relevant to morality, even though the mere reasons given for that precept by the legislator are in and of themselves heretical, blasphemous, demonic even.

Let’s take an example, the demand of offering the Ancient Rite of the Holy Mass in some sewer because the precept has it that the Ancient Rite of Holy Mass has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish and therefore it can not be offered in any parish church. Offering the Holy Mass correctly and with reverence, albeit in a weird place, like the bunk of a barracks in Auschwitz, is certainly at least amoral, though in the circumstances I would say it is most laudable, heroic. But not to offer the best to our Lord on His Altar in His Church when you otherwise could is a grave sin of omission of reverence due to our Lord and to His Holy Sacrifice.

And I cannot be silent about the statement publicized throughout the world that the Holy Sacrifice has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish, and that’s why it’s thrown out, why Jesus is thrown out. That statement, that heresy, that blasphemy, that diabolical interference, is evil, and is part and parcel with the pragmatic aspect of the precept. The two are intertwined. One cannot follow the precept and not fall into heresy, blasphemy and diabolical horror.

  • Non serviam. Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.

I know, I know. I’m being ironic, sarcastic. But it’s well deserved. It falls on them.

CDW +Arthur Roche: Stop licking fake wounds! [Bonus: Jesus in the rains of Birmingham]

Traditiones custodes has it that if the Ancient Rite of the Sacrifice of the Mass is to take place, it cannot happen on an altar in a parish church, insisting that Jesus is to be thrown out bodily, literally. Then, in the recent answer to the first “Dubia” about this hatred of Jesus, there is an insistence not only on throwing Jesus out of His own church, but that there can be no mention even in a parish bulletin that the Ancient Rite, the Last Supper united with Calvary, is taking place somewhere in the parish territory. There is a reason given: because Jesus in His Holy Sacrifice has nothing to do with the life of the parish. That’s, like, demonic, blasphemous, is it not?

Archbishop Arthur Roche the other day commented on those Dubia comments to the National Catholic Register, saying that “the challenge is to get on with it without licking one’s wounds when no one has been injured.”

The Archbishop dares to mock God Himself. Not one lamb of Jesus’ Little Flock could possibly care less about being mocked by the Archbishop. What we don’t like is that JESUS HAS BEEN WOUNDED, INJURED. We don’t want Jesus to be mocked and reviled and mistreated. But that Jesus is marginalized, discriminated against, called irrelevant to the life of the parish is what is hotly desired by the Archbishop, who doesn’t, who cannot see Jesus.

G.A. Studdert-Kennedy’s poem of long ago effectively mocks the Archbishop today, with a rejection of that effeminate softness that cannot bear to witness Jesus’ wounds and injuries:

When Jesus Came to Birmingham

When Jesus came to Golgotha, they hanged Him on a tree,
They drove great nails through hands and feet, and made a Calvary;
They crowned Him with a crown of thorns, red were His wounds and deep,
For those were crude and cruel days, and human flesh was cheap.

When Jesus came to Birmingham, they simply passed Him by.
They would not hurt a hair of Him, they only let Him die;
For men had grown more tender, and they would not give Him pain,
They only just passed down the street, and left Him in the rain.

Still Jesus cried, ‘Forgive them, for they know not what they do, ‘
And still it rained the winter rain that drenched Him through and through;
The crowds went home and left the streets without a soul to see,
And Jesus crouched against a wall, and cried for Calvary.

////////////// I stand, we stand in solidarity with Jesus. We’re happy to be crouching against a wall in the winter rains, drenched through and through, all of crying for Calvary, and the Archbishop simply shrieking: Depart you followers of Jesus, the Pachamama and New Ways Ministries liturgies are with me! And we calmly respond: “Cease! The Sacred Heart of Jesus is with me!”

  • “When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.” – Galatians 2:11

I think that citation of Saint Paul is still permitted by divine mandate, whatever the most tender entitled snowflakes otherwise think in the Roman Curia. Get out your bibles and look it up.

But I’m not done with my rant yet. It’s Christmas. And we’re passing Jesus in the manger, and we don’t hear the angels singing, we don’t even notice Him there in the manger, except to say, with some cynicism we hope is not too deeply ingrained: “How cute!” And then we go get “vaccine” jabs that were researched, developed, tested on the image of Jesus in the womb, the least of the brethren. The Pope and his minions, the faithless bishops, the vast majority, almost 100%, praise the abortion-tainted “vaccines”, even require them, even use the jab as a requirement to give or get the Sacraments. “Kill Jesus to get Jesus in the Sacraments.” And when they are done with the babies, they throw their corpses against a wall in the winter rains to be washed into a sewer.

You think this is mean to say this on Christmas morning? No, no. It is what brings us joy, Christmas joy, joy in the Holy Spirit, joy for seeing that God knew what he was getting into upon this earth and was born amongst us anyway, knowing what we would do to Him for having too much goodness, too much kindness, too much truth. Thank you, Jesus, for taking us seriously, deadly seriously. Thank you for being born during the reign of terror of Herod, for going into exile in an enemy country, for then being crucified for us, for not caring about all that violence, but with joy just setting out to get the job done, to “get on with it” (as +Roche said) with enthusiasm, gladly paying the price of our redemption, taking on the suffering we deserve for sin, standing in our place, Innocent for the guilty, having the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. And He does. And He intended this from the first moment of His conception, with joy. He intended this in the manger, with joy. He intended this on the Cross, with joy.

That Jesus would have joy in bringing us to heaven is a great joy. Thank you, Jesus, for being borne amongst us so as to have us be borne into heaven where you desire to give us as a gift to our heavenly Father. Amen.

Oh, and that picture at the top? That’s Herod in his party palace moments before having John the Baptist’s head cut off for John’s having witnessed to Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. There’s an analogy in there somewhere methinks.

I’m soooo afraid of the dubious Dubia! Not. Breaking the “It’s not up-to-date” clock.

You have heard that it was said that a “Freudian slip” appears in the closing sentence of the recent incredibly cruel and petty truly hateful dubious Dubia published the other day. However, that would be out of character for such profoundly cultured giants in the history of entitled will-to-power. I think this is simply more mocking of Christ’s Little Flock:

  • “From the offices of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, 4 December 2021, on the 58th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution on the Scared Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium. — ✠ Arthur Roche – Prefect

Bunch of self-absorbed Promethean Pelagian trolls, are they not? The thing is, the CDW otherwise consistently insists on mocking that Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, shrieking that any citation of it (retain Latin, retain chant, retain ad orientem…) is anachronistic, invalid, as it is only the weirdnesses subsequent to the Council until today (Clowns, Pachamama usurpation of Jesus’ Altar, no blessings in the Book of Blessings, etc.) that can legitimately be desired by the faithful. Yes, little Arthur says: “The very Liturgy is scared of us! We’re in power! Feel our power!”

Meanwhile, the Lex orandi, the Law of Prayer, which is precisely the very Sacrifice of Jesus at the Last Supper united with Calvary – My Body betrayed for you in Sacrifice, my Blood poured out for you in Sacrifice – is defined in that manner, note well, by the accompanying letter to Traditionis custodes, with its citation of Pope Benedict to that effect. That Lex orandi is rejected for the Ancient Rite, and therefore for all rites, including the Novus Ordo. That the Ancient Rite is not any kind of expression at all of the Latin Rite is as much to say that the Ancient Rite is not at all any kind of expression of the Sacrifice of Jesus at the Last Supper united with Calvary. That’s rank heresy, blasphemy.

+Roche is saying that it is Jesus Himself who should be scared, since it is God Himself, the Word Incarnate, laying down His life for us, the Innocent for the guilty, who is being rejected, forbidden, marginalized beyond any peripheries, all by way of the power of +Roach and Pope Francis. Well, Jesus is not scared. He stays on the Cross:

I’ll tell you who should be scared. It should be +Roche and Pope Francis who should be scared to go before the judgment and meet up with the Immaculate Conception holding Jesus. This will be the judgment, will it not? Looking into her eyes?

Meanwhile, Jesus and His Sacrifice are never not-up-to-date, never out-of-date, are never needing to get-with-the-times. Jesus said that when He is lifted up on the Cross, He will draw all to Himself of all times and places, men of every nation, tribe, people, race, language, whatever. Jesus melts the clocks. He draws all into that one hour of our redemption, please God also of our salvation. With Jesus, ever Ancient, ever New, we are always up-to-date, in the time and place where Divine Providence has placed us, that is, always next to dearest Immaculate Mary always next to Jesus under the Cross.

To sum up: In the same way that that Jesus’ Sacrifice, which happened so long ago, is dismissed as irrelevant to the life of the parish, as they say, this is the same way that original sin is dismissed as having any relevance to us today, and is the same way that the importance of the purposed murder of babies ripped from the womb to get their living organs for research, development and testing of “vaccines” for the bottom line of Big Pharma is irrelevant to any moral decision making. Making original sin and redemption and any sin irrelevant because time has gone by is demonic.

Dearest Jesus, thank you for making time as your creation which you hold in your hands. Thank you for bringing us together across time. Thank you for drawing us to yourself, melting those clocks. Thank you for making the likes of +Roche and Pope Francis scared of you, so that they might have the opportunity to be converted to you by your grace. Let them put their fingers into the nail-prints, let them put their hands into your side, your Heart. Let them discover that you are not irrelevant in your Sacrifice, dear Jesus. Let them say, “My Lord and my God,” and believe it by way of your timeless grace. And thank you, Jesus, for making us fearless, you who have insisted so many times: “Do not fear!” “Be not afraid!” And I’m not afraid, we’re not afraid, dear Jesus, thanks to you. Your Little Flock takes consolation that you will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

CDW Vatikan Politburo criminalizes TLM Mass times in church bulletins. What we do…

Pope Francis in conjunction with the Congregation for Divine Worship apparently just made it a criminal offense to advertise Mass times for the TLM in any parish bulletin. I say criminal because, of course, just about any priest (there are exceptions) just about anywhere (there are exceptions) who would do that would immediately be removed from all priestly duties, have his salary and insurance and living quarters ripped away from him, and be set on an involuntary path to be laicized as a liability to the church and the world. This kind of thing has happened hundreds, thousands of times over the decades, and for much less than advertising Mass times.

Well, here’s the deal: I haven’t had a parish bulletin since the beginning of 2020, since the beginning of Covid lockdowns, when our governor of the State of North Carolina decided that he was not only an executor, but also a dictator-legislator who could impose draconian penalties on churches for meeting in church during times of Covid even while with entirely cynical discrimination he was giving State Liquor Stores a pass. If I had a church bulletin they would bring that to court as proof to have me remanded to prison. After all, I had Holy Mass in church during their stupid lockdowns, and the doors were unlocked!

Well, those times have receded a bit, but we still can’t have a church bulletin, because – gasp! – what if I were to advertise TLM Mass times in the bulletin? The politburo at the CDW in the Holy See would come down hard and impose all manner of increasingly severe penalties. I mean, do they get kickbacks from George Soros for this kind of pettiness? It’s truly what you would expect from some communist mayor of whatever small town in Nicaragua. I know, because I was there in the mid-1980s. So, so petty.

People have been asking about Christmas Mass times. I honestly don’t know what to say. If I speak about Mass times am I breaking the “spirit” of the law, going against the “vision” of Pope Francis? Am I to have my throat slit as a priest by the powers that be. Soooo…. soooo petty.

We simply don’t have a parish bulletin. :-)

Insane CDW anti-Christ dubia responses? But my parish does this! Hahahahaha!

Above, at Holy Redeemer very early Sunday mornings.

Below, just a bit later, at Prince of Peace:

For those readers who are “stunned” at my appraisal of the CDW’s efforts, and there are some ecclesiastics who are, as they say, “stunned”, I say this: the dubia answers state that Jesus’ Holy Sacrifice has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish. And that, my friends, is not just evil, but demonic. Objectively, it’s blasphemy, objectively, a mortal sin of scandal over against the Lord’s Little Flock.

Imagine, at the last judgment, with Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, with His wounds still in His hands and feet and side, His Heart, in front of you, and you screaming that Jesus is irrelevant, that only you are important, even as you run into hell: feel the POWER!

Here’s the deal, in this tiniest of all parishes in North America, we who are nothing, all agree with this:

  • Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium, et invisibilium. Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum. Et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo, Lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis: sub Pontio Pilato passus, et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in caelum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, judicare vivos et mortuos: cuius regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum, et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur, et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.

And… and… we’re belligerent about it, entrenched, rigid. [gasp!]

CDW Dubia: Jesus isn’t part of the parish

  • “The Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes in art. 3 § 2 requests that the Bishop, in dioceses where up to now there has been the presence of one or more groups celebrating according to the Missal prior to the reform of 1970, ‘designate one or more locations where the faithful adherents of these groups may gather for the Eucharistic celebration (not however in the parochial churches and without the erection of new personal parishes)’. 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.” (CDW Dubia answer)

So, Jesus’ Sacrifice means nothing whatsoever to the life of the parish. Nothing. God-Incarnate laying down His life for us, the Innocent for the guilty, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, to bring us to life by grace in this world, grace which will turn into glory forever in eternal life… that means NOTHING to the life of the parish? Really?

You lost me there Pope Francis, and whatever henchmen at the CDW. You lost me there.

I stand with Jesus. Not with you, you creepy dark souls. You reject Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. You lead us to hell, you liars, dead men running to eternal death. I’m not with you. I remain with Jesus. He is my life. He is the life of my parish. Do whatever the hell you want to take out your little vengeance on me now, you idiots. Don’t you realize you only bring me, us, to greater faith? Jesus wins. Jesus always wins.

Right this second I’m going to up the parish church to offer the TLM that you hate so much.

  • “But Father George! Father George! They’re just talking about progressivist ideological symbolism as the life of the community, not about Jesus! Be nice, Father George!”

Sure, what they’ve done is reduce Jesus to ideological symbolism to be manipulated for raw power, just another unit to be disregarded in Hegelian dialectic of Rahnerian pantheism. That’s it. I want nothing to do with their Dubia and their penalties, their blah-blah-blah so very hateful of God, neighbor and themselves (objectively speaking, of course). Too creepy. Too dark.
