A serious problem.Lets get in denial quickly
This is from Fr Clements Blog which I recommended previously
A little bird tells me that someone has dared to say that this blog is 'a bit negative'. I would like to point out that any who share this feeling can go to the main site of Transalpine Redemptorists (see my links) where there is an absolute glut of positive things, allowing me to concentrate on the specific issues that confront Catholics in Christchurch (NZ) who are interested in attending the Tridentine Mass. However, as this is a typical criticism of the pre-Vatican II Church also, such comments, I'm afraid, do not perturb me unduly. Self-defense necessarily is somewhat negative, and it is a little irritating to be told by your attacker that your negativity is turning him off. But, it is, I admit, about time I introduced a nice story for a change, and so here is a little story told by Bishop Fellay, who is no longer excommunicated.
"Let me tell you a story about a lady from Paris which was told to me by the lady herself, so, once again, it is not hearsay. She was going to the New Mass and was not at ease there. Something was wrong there, but she didn't know exactly what. She asked the priest, "What's going on?" She got no reasonable answer, so she continued going, but was very bothered. One day she was chatting with her aunt. For little apparent reason, the aunt made an off-hand comment that the Blessed Virgin Mary spoke to little children. A few weeks later, this popped into the head of the lady and she exclaimed, "I have an eight-year-old daughter. Maybe she can get an answer!" So she and her daughter drove to the Rue de Bac where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to St. Catherine Laboure to give her the Miraculous Medal. Arriving there, she instructed her daughter: "You ask the Blessed Virgin Mary where we have to go to Mass." The lady told me there was so much traffic that it was impossible for her to park and go in with the girl. She stayed in the car and circled around. After 10-15 minutes, the girl came out to the car and told her mother, "We have to go to St. Nicholas du Chardonnet." "St. Nicholas!" said the mother, "That's the Lefebvrist church! They are schismatics!...Why? Ask the Blessed Mother why!" So the girl went back into the chapel, and after a while came back to the car with this answer (I don't invent anything): "Because there is the true Church." "What's that?" asked the mother, "What's the true Church? What is it that you say, daughter? I don't understand." So the girl went in again, beginning a series of question-and-answer sessions with the Blessed Mother which lasted for the next three weeks. For three weeks, this lady would pose questions for the girl to ask Our Lady. The girl would return speaking of Quas Primas, of Mortalium Animos, of Vatican I, Vatican II, and so on. The lady read the encyclicals and her share of serious books. At the end of three weeks, she surrendered and ended up at St. Nicholas du Chardonnet. I know several similar stories, which show very clearly something: the good Lord is not going to abandon anybody who wants to stick to the truth. God is going to help those who want to serve Him even if it takes a miracle. We must trust God. We must give Him this trust, that He is really our Father, and that if we really, really, really want to be His sons, He will care, whatever happens. Of course, we must be serious in our will to be Catholic and to behave as though we mean it. If we are serious and sincere, God is not going to cheat us."
How can we question this? What does our conscience tell us. I wrote a blog or two ago, Mary , our mother, does not like the Novus Ordo. Silence reigned, no abusive e mails. This can mean only two things the comment was written off, very likely, or lets ignore it and trust in God. Trust I would hope like the ending comment in the above excert from Fr. Clements blog.
If she would send a little child to the tridentine mass, should we not at least ask ourselves, our conscience why ever would Mary do that? There must be a reason and we must know the only private revelations about the Mass is seen in the way some wackos want it offered, making it "not in communion with Rome". Our brave churchmen turn a blind eye to every, private revelation that changes the ritual and make fools of themselves in their disobedience to Rome and the Holy Father. That disobedience would not sit well with Heaven in any circumstances. Did God convert from Hebraicism to Catholicism and changed the sacrifice and the ways in which He wanted it celebrated. Assure me father so I can respect you that this was part of the fulfilment of Christ.
When you look at the altar today and the celebrants and the concelebrants (in their minds they are concelbrating and should be priests) it is peopled mostly by women. They become part of the ephereal enchanted sisterhood. Sisterhood with whom. Since when was it Christ's opinon women should suffer the dreadful fate He did. Women as Mary suffer in a womanly way and that is why their prayers are so powerful.
What else is wrong with the present parish Novus Ordo offerings besides having no relationship with Rome. I can say and so can you all, each parish has a different method of celebrating and the minimal is always the acceptable. Looked on from heaven and God hasd already punished confusion remember the Tower of Babe I ask is there any difference for Him between Babel and the Western Sacrifice as He watches the unholy discordant racket that assails His ears and His eyes. Dismiss this question, as I believe many will without thinking as your minds get sore at what, me or perhaps the truth?
The Mass or the sacrifice is a supernatural act of Charity and if we are in that state of grace called Charity then how great is the sacrifice. The majority of catholics who present themselves offering themselves and the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ are without the forgiveness of sins and you Fathers know it well. Hypocritically you say nothing. You know yourself best tell me why or do I already know. I can surmise by the actions after Communion which is unholy for many He did not come for many of you. It is time priests and laity stopped the sin of rationalization saying this is what God wants. It is not and to give your opinion as God's is wrong. He disdains and is disgusted by false Prophets or teachers and those who say it is Peace where Peace is not. How then can this uncharitable mess be acceptable to any. Who would rejoice at such a mess? Who listens to such a mess of windy potage?
Again those of you in whose personal opinion you have the ear of God tell Him to put me right. If not then Father find the bravery to say enough we are going to do it right by the Church. Can you? Should I answer for you from experience and observation?
