  Paul 6th, "No more changes".
They are still happening, changes I mean.
Last weekend, a priest told me I am always finding fault, looking for problems. He meant in the Church. He was right but it is not so much a matter of looking for problems as having them hit me between the eyes and are unavoidable. Go into any local parish and find the Liturgy has been gerrymandered by the demands of the Laity. A person certainly does not have to judge. These problems cannot be denied, except by ignorance and a disgusting lack of instruction by the Pastor from the pulpit. The relatively new doctrine of ecumenical accommodation is now the norm and is found to be completely and unequivocally acceptable. Another priest told me I was offensive, rightly so and I agree with him wholeheartedly, I am on the offensive and I truly hope that those who know more than I join in and outshine me. They had however better be orthodox and right. The Church and the priesthood is in a sorry state and gone to join the dogs of heresy, schism and plain protestantism. What almost unbelievably horrific is that Isaiah is still valid. Are the rumours of the destruction of Priestly celibacy true, those sins of fornication with other men? Why are so many in the church persuaded by those in the media (as it suits their egos) that change is possible, is allowed, since red blooded men cannot be celibate? Is the prophecy of Isaiah true in chapter 3 verse 4? Can I write it seems so? Correct me you bishops who read this, Show me it is not true. You hierarchs and priests should be sobbing your hearts out over this fault. One fault that is so patently obvious. I have been told that I, and the Latin Mass is so “retro”.
So many, in recent years, have joined the Church and have never really changed how they should practice the Catholic Faith, nor have many been taught the basic rudiments of Catholic Practices. These converts have not been shown or instructed in the common religious manners, actions or behaviour in the Church. They have not one clue on how to behave in the House of God, in His Presence. Do not bother to justify your views it really does not matter God does not mind our behaviour. You can tell that to Adam when or if you meet him. They bring to His Table, to His altar their disrespectful behaviours. Yes, in many cases is what they are. These newly born catholics treat everything as "up for change" and mostly want to return to how they worshipped in some schismatic previous chapel life that they lived. The majority of cradle catholics today encourage them and their whacko signage. We now are all for, besides accommodation, for adaptation and for change. How long before they want the Stations of the Cross removed or the statues of Blessed Mary, to be replaced by so many childish images of dubious splendor. Not long, just wait and see. In many cases parish priests cannot withstand their assault on the ancient practices of our faith and these pastors and more often more supportive of these foolish ways. They have no support. I, as an orthodox catholic, consider their outrageious demands extremely insulting to many of us who have practised the faith faithfully for many, many years. They have, these unformed and uniformed newbies, literally torn the guts out of our beliefs. Their protestantism and lutheranism are the new order of the daily sacrifice. WHY IS THIS SO? My older cousin Maureen, and a great girl she was, taught the catechism at Sunday school on Sunday afternoon and she was careful, as I remember, with newer children to make sure they understood, they were Catholic now and not protestants. Does that happen now? Not in the RCIA classes I have gone to, as my wife says, “To spy on the opposition”. At Catholic Grade School, we had no doubt it was very sinful not to inform our conscience. Yet so many of the newbies say and force it literally down our throats it is scripture alone that governs our faith and our behaviour, not an informed conscience. The cult hanging by their toenails over the abyss, the pentecostalists, great misunderstanders of First Corinthians, claim if it is not in scriptures it is not believable. Is this acceptable I ask, only as it is accepted universally, outside our Church? It must be, as no one raises one iota of objection to this nonsense. This is against what I was taught, that scriptures good works and the Fathers of the Church are intrinsic to the practice of Catholicism. Does one see daily, even weekly the good works of atonement, reparation and penance practised often in the nouveau house of ma, was called a Catholic Church. One cannot truly understand Ist Corinthians without the help of St John Chrysostom who spoke and could understand the classical Greek in which St Paul wrote it. Let alone as the Document on Divine Revelation says, “Consider it in the light of the times when it was written. These newbies have also dismissed the description of the demands of God when he directed the Hebrews to build a place of worship, or as Solomon wrote, “To build on Your mountain a copy of the Holy Tent that You prepared in the beginning”. The separation of the holy altar from the laity not longer exists, a separation of those altar rails that set aside the true worshippers of God. The room, now a tabernacle, where only the High Priest could enter is no longer special, every Tom, Dick, Harry or Jane can bang around noisily with their hands on the Holy of Holies.
One of these stalwart newbies was telling me the other day how good the priest was. I asked “Why”? “He is so nice” was the answer. I am fed up to the teeth with nice priests. I want, not a nice man but a good one, with the kind of good will a priest should have. A shepherd who serves both his laity and God by teaching us to avoid sinful ways and practise an all encompassing love of God? Does a nice man have the good will that worries about my redemption and sanctity? Is he a man who with every weapon Christ and His Mystical Body provides works and listens to my sins and forgives them, who offers my sacrifice in the way God has instructed His Church and with the rules His Mystical Body has instructed us? I do not want local changes by which the priest is persuaded to offer my sacrifice, which takes me out of unity with Rome. These are my privileges and not my right nor is it the right of every opinionated liberal thinkers to demand different.
Well now here we go again take this or forward it to your parish priest and bishop get their opinion on its veracity. The Bishop will tell you that he can if he thinks fit make changes in his own diocese. Who gives him that authority, other bishops of course. Other Bishops who have a vested interest in being in control. The Church insists no one can change the Liturgy, but has neither the will or fortitude to make it stick. Does this happen because the experienced faithful Catholics, wise in their virtue of religion are easily shut up? They are never consulted at the parish level either. I have never seen a truly orthodox practising Catholic appointed by the parish priest to the Parish Council. Faithful Catholics are always waiting for God to answer their prayers and do something, which He will not. He waits to see if we have any value for His Grace and Favours and if we truly value His offering of His Son to Himself for our redemption. So be brave and try your priests and bishops. They need to know we are both serious and will be offensive in the defence of what our parents taught us. Ask your priest and your bishop has he ever on Pro Life Sunday before we join the Life Chain ever gave a homily on Humanae Vitae?
