The accusation: THEY ARE AS RIGID AS THE CROSS! RIGID! THEY ARE RIGID!
- That’s true. Jesus doesn’t let go. No one can rip me from His hands.
- And with Him holding also my heart with His in His hands I have no strength to let go.
The repeated accusation: THEY ARE AS RIGID AS THE CROSS! RIGID! THEY ARE RIGID!
Yep. Lol. Ever ancient, ever new, Jesus’ Sacrifice not merely reflects the Lex orandi, the Law of Prayer, presently, but IS the Lex orandi, always, past, present, future. I love that when Jesus was lifted up on the Cross He drew to Himself all of us right across time and space, across Calvary, through all the hell that was broken out on Calvary. It’s quite the ride, that, from death to life, from hatred to love, from hell to heaven.
Meanwhile, no pope can legitimately say that the Last Supper united with Calvary at Holy Mass (say, in the Ancient Rite) is not anymore the Lex orandi, and therefore must be thrown out of any parochial church as that which is unworthy, just a load of shit hurtful to all.
Should, say, Pope Francis do that in Traditionis Custodes I wouldn’t pay that “document” one bit of attention. Oh, wait, I forgot, he already did that. So, whatever. Even if the Pope declared himself to be the One God, the only God, and that no other gods will be before him (except the bloodthirsty demon idol Pachamama), even then, especially then would I ignore him. I would pray for his conversion, but I would ignore his wild execrations.
And anyway, Pope Francis is so ideologically rigid in his cruel accusations: THEY ARE AS RIGID AS THE CROSS! RIGID! THEY ARE RIGID!
