O to be perfect!!!
Looking over the many
Catholic blogs on the Internet, I mean no lack of charity towards
them but many are at times wearisome and tiring in their attempted
subjects. When will some one ask who benefits from the splits seen in so
many areas, does Christ? When will some good theologian, who does not apply spin to justify unintelligent actions, speak out. I read the subject content of those
bloggers who long for the days of which Vatican 2, and the liberal
obscurantists of today, have made us out to have worshipped Christ badly and needed to change. I wonder about the liberal obscurantists who tread very close to perdition whose point of view tells us previous worship if not very near to a heresy is certainly schismatic. They use the words retrogressive and old fashioned. I personally object strongly almost violently and of course I do since I cannot see my father to
be a heretic in any form, even a taint of schism made him fearful. I find it disgusting that these sentiments
are broadcast many times by scoundrels hiding behind pen names. Pen names
cribbed from the Church's history. I remind them Jesus is not a pen friend but Lord of all creation and lover of Mankind. Of course here we go with ad
hominem thoughts. How many are shouting in their minds these words,
liar, uncharitable wretch, and you are very wrong and offensive. To
you and those of your ilk, I say terrific I hope I have gotten
through to your minds, so closed to Church history and so
theologically dismissive of the triumphant shout of God, His great, “I
Do you all truly think,
once Christ left he forgot His Promise of the Paraclete to help our
memories? Do you think you have to remind Him of His dereliction of
His promise? Do you think, it is obvious so many do, the Jesus has
not kept His promise and furthermore do you not see that as we return
to grace, our souls moved and drawn to His "raising up", drawn towards a
perfect fullness of grace, how for us beauty becomes so front and centre? No
many of you do not, or we would not have forsaken a liturgy so filled with
humility, expressed by the sacrificial minister, resplendent in truly
holy vestments and attended by lower priestly ranks and replaced it
with some stark funeral home congregation in full Lutheran ugliness, presided over by an inactive sack sat on a chair to one side.
It is so and the vast majority of you cannot deny this statement,
although many will out of ignorance and a lack of experience in the
wonderful liturgical prayer of silence that allows a truly Divine Contemplation
of God. Why, let me ask you why and then give on your behalf an answer so
honest you will think it yourselves, but never say it aloud. We
have never, never sought to see one for ourselves and in any
case the church says Novus Ordo is better.
Novus Ordo, the very
words reek of heresy. When did the Church need a new order did it desert the Old Order? Did so many of us miss Christ coming
again in such a way as He would have to come to make a new order,
that is re-suffer His Passion, Death and Resurrection? Was the Church
so wrong and evil before Vatican 2? The Bishops in their collective ego that will
not listen to any different view point have made it obvious from Rome
they cannot make or have not made a mistake. No revisting they say. This means they feel the
Church has not turned down the Paraclete. The Holy Spirit, the Divine
Spirit of supernatural love and sanctifying grace had done a bunk previously and had left the Church, sometime in the days previous to their pastoral
Council. God had turned His face from us, as David prayed and asked Him not to take His Holy Spirit from him. Therefore
they claim it is they and only they that can renew the Church. This
is the defence of so called paternal fathers that spiritually and
religiously abuse our souls, that physically abused children and packed together to protect their brothers in sin. The outright
foolishness that was committed in the name of renewal, ignoring the
lack of true renewal in the confessional which had started before
Vatican 2. A very present sign of the times but not among the signs they publicly
claimed to be mended pastorally as they considered the state of church and her relationship to the world A former Jesuit Priest, Peter Hebblethwaite writing in the Tablet or a Jesuit
Monthly, wrote and questioned this omission on confession that is about this factual omission. Look at the sudden
awakening today by prelates 50 years later to this bad habit. Is it now a Trojan horse used to divert our attention? It will not easily be repaired.
How awful a true renewal given to us by God as a sacrament is spurned
by His fallen people, that the bishops of the Novus Ordo cannot repair
but the Bishops and priests of the Latin masses can. Why is this
so??? Tell me fathers you who know best why is this a fact which you
never mention and are obviously so unable to fix??? Can you not see
in this sign of the times God's severe annoyance with your changes? He
draws the traditionally orthodox to the Confessional and Vocations at the Latin mass and
all the Pastoral pleadings of renewed Pastors have no effect at the
Novus Ordo. In fact it is an aberration for a Novus Ordo priest to
mention it, go to confession I mean. Prove me wrong Bishops use your
diocesan paper to survey how many use the Sacrament. Get your sheep
to fill the in the boxed questions do you confess weekly, twice weekly, monthly, seldom or
yearly. Not one of you will do or believe you need do this. You already know and
without fortitude and humility not one of you will write, print or
say one word to support or deny this statement. As I say show me I am wrong. I know of a priest who
told me so many priests of his diocese will not go to confession as
other priests gossip. So Bishops have you the guts instead of
bullying your priests into obedience ask them, “If you love me, go
to confession” or "How often do you confess and why so little?" Well. Well, you do not seem to be brave enough to
do this. Bishops tell me what is more important to you, your
comfort, your financials or your sheep? Taking a guess, it seems
from the news reports more priests and laity inside the church are
prosecuted for financial fraud than illicit sex.
Look at and consider
this. You changed the Mass for no good reason, to give us a ceremony
that barely meets liturgical standards as laid out by God to His
community in the Old Law. It is such a lack of perfection. You design Churches that do not follow the
old ordinances and foolish laity talk about retrogressive ceremonies.
You go absolutely contra to the separation of the altar from the
laity. You are absolutely contra to God's specific instruction to who
serves Him on the Altar. God's anointing oil he reserves to Himself,
that is those who are His by His selection. You remove from us the
very ancient prostration that fear of Him drew from the Hebrews.
Prostration on our knees, hands clasped and heads bowed down. You
take away the separation of the altar rails and what a dumb reason
you give for this. With the kneeling it takes too long to serve His Children with Him.
Where is your wisdom and intelligence that comes with a state of
grace that sanctifies? What have you done in return? You go back to
something from before your pastoral changes and bring back the sign of peace.
and the silliness of catechumens leaving the Church before the Gospel. Makes no sense. These times of pandemonium add more time back in so where is the logic in keeping them? The Church had already removed them. You
go against the Council of Trent and deny by some kind of
unintelligent trickery, the dogma of whole and entire. You have now
made the reception of communion twice as long and you have added even
more time since there are no limit, no boundaries to whom may receive. Even
Shakespeare in the Merchant of Venice proved you cannot have a body
without blood. Do you truly claim your deliberate obfuscation has
glorified God? Explain to me how. How many of you Bishops and Priests truly know, really know
the importance, supreme importance of Michael the Archangel's warning
at Fatima of the sacrileges and blasphemies heaped upon the Most Holy
Sacrifice of the Altar? If you do have I missed you promulgation of such an important message. The very obvious answer is so very, very few.
Is it any wonder we here we do not really have to believe in Fatima.
Even Balam's ass knew better than to ignore holiness.
As the psalmist sang, Do
not let me lead astray those who seek you O Lord God of Israel, so do
I recommend again and again, forward this on to your parish priest, to
your bishop and ask is there any truth in this? Ask if it is worthy
of belief and if not why not? It only takes a little fortitude? A
virtuous grace we can easily obtain by true and deep prayer. Try it
you will get to like it for when God notices your actions in defence
of his Mystical Body he rewards us all with even more grace and as
they say God knows we need it.
To those who say this writer is not charitable let me ask you this question as I asked a parish priest who sought to correct me. " His opinion was I wrote well but not charitably. I asked if it was truthful and he agreed it was. So my next question was who is perfect charity Jesus Christ. He got that right but what stuck his tongue was who is perfect truth Jesus Christ again I answered for him. He knew if it is truth then it is always charitable and it was hard to admit. The sword Christ brought for us is it named charity too?
An Add on
The priest reminds me that all this irritating disunity over the Sacrament could have been avoided by grace filled thinkers, i.e. use the vernacular in the lowmass of the tridentine liturgy and keep with full higm mass of the same liturgy. But egos always stirr up controversy and that is a true sign of the signs.
