Guest post: Patronising youth, even if by the Pope is still patronising

A guest post by Irenaeus, a 23 year old reader of Vox and more than slightly put off by the patronising of young Catholics as the new Synod soon comes upon us.





Birds, Bees, Youth, Youth Masses and Yutes

by Irenaeus

When I was in elementary school about ten years ago, sex ed was taught throughout Grades 6 to 8 in the Catholic Ontario school system, during puberty, at precisely the time we needed it. When we weren’t watching informative videos on the reproductive systems or labeling diagrams of said reproductive systems, we were given relative freedom to ask our burning questions about fertilization and the like. Never once did I ask – or hear anyone else do the same – when women and men should have their first child.

Until now.

In preparation for the much-hyped 2018 Synod on the Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment, Il Vaticano has aggressively pushed for youth aged 16 to 29 to complete a survey which promises to “provide [them] with the opportunity to communicate, express and recount who you are and what you want to say about yourself.” It’s being lauded on social media as the best thing to happen to Catholic youth since sliced bread.

Newsflash: it’s not. And it’s time to stop treating youth like they need special treatment.

In addition to the odd question I mentioned above, the survey asks youth to rank characteristics they feel they consider themselves to possess on a 1-5 rating. Or rank their satisfaction with certain institutions. Indicate their sentiments about the working world. Explain why they live with their parents. Why they are unable to have children. If they involve themselves in society through “movements of some type.” If they are Catholic, and how often they participate in “religious services.” Use certain words to describe God. Describe their view of Jesus. Rank only three things (out of nine!) which they consider to be “of particular urgency for the Catholic Church today.” Describe their habits on “the social network” and view of its importance. You get the picture.

I have a couple questions of my own for the people who put this together, and make it look like it came out of Angus Reid. Who cares? Why is there such a willing desire to dumb things down and appeal to more than Catholic youth? Why do the youth deserve an entire synod devoted just to them?

I’ll tell you why: it’s because the youth have been indoctrinated to think they are special in the Catholic Church and will somehow become its saviours.

Hear me, fellow youth: You’re not. And we already have a Savior. His name is Jesus Christ, Supreme Creator and King of the Universe.

Take it from me. I’m in my early twenties – fitting the demographic range targeted for the survey – and I spend regular time with people who are at least ten years my senior who aren’t my parents. On a weekly basis. We talk about serious matters affecting the Church, and discussions are passionate. I’m spoken to as though I am older than I actually am. Things aren’t watered down for me because I’m younger. I’m given the straight up truth and I regularly peruse other materials to bolster my knowledge. In short, I am taken seriously.
Unlike the survey, which slathers on a veneer of respect in order to coerce youth to agree with its modernist, progressive, Novus Ordo-based ideology.

What deceit. What duplicity. Like those youth Masses which are all the rage. With its guitars. Pop-based music. Priests who step out of the sanctuary in order to connect more with the youth, with horrible, simpering sermons to boot. Along with a host of other abuses I’m not going to mention. The youth may come out, but how many actually stick with Catholicism past high school? Regularly attend Mass once they move away from home? Not become apostates? Or otherwise succumb to destructive ideologies currently running rampant on post-secondary campuses? Though there are some, it’s not as many as the droves of youth who come to your Saturday youth Masses, pastors and youth ministers.

As a youth, I stopped attending those Masses long ago. They are disrespectful to our Lord. They are also disrespectful to the youth, who come there looking for something solid and immutable when their lives are in a swirl of change. They don’t get that in Masses that blatantly ignore the reason we have a Mass in the first place. They don’t get that by being taught watered-down, Protestantized Catholic tenets, which ill-equips them for the real world, which is so anti-Catholic. They don’t get that in youth groups, where they are basically forced to agree with what everyone else is saying, even if they personally don’t. Quite simply, they don’t carry on the faith as they should when they receive “primacy of place” in a place where they shouldn’t. Back when I was a Novus Ordo Catholic, I was involved in these things, and it sickens me I used to think youth were the saviours of the Church.

Pastors and youth ministers, are you willing to take me up on a challenge?

Abolish youth ministry. Get rid of Lifeteen. EDGE. The horrible Alpha program. Pluck the youth Masses out of the Mass schedules. Disband the youth bands. Trash all the terrible, modernist music. Like a particular Jesuit who appears on this blog, you’re losing more souls than you’re saving. In the vacuum that results, have the Mass of the Ages – the Tridentine Latin Mass – and nothing else. Restore Gregorian Chant. Polyphony. Institute a rigid catechesis program. Teach yourself the many abuses of the Mass – anything that diminishes the sacred – and eradicate them.

It won’t be immediate. Or easy. But the return will be more than you’re getting now. Believe me. I’ve seen more return after almost a year of attending the TLM than almost four years of attending the Novus Ordo.

If we simply stopped putting youth on a pedestal, we wouldn’t need to deal with simpering surveys like the one put out by the Vatican. Or deal with priests that give lip service while ill-equipping their charges to face an anti-Catholic world. We need youth to become true Catholics who will carry on the faith after they stop being children. We need adults firm in their faith.

In the meantime, let’s stop using the word youth and replace it with the word ‘yutes.’ It’s what the survey wants us to do, anyway.

Saint Jude speaks to us today

Epistle of Saint Jude the Apostle

 [1] Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James: to them that are beloved in God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called. [2] Mercy unto you, and peace, and charity be fulfilled. [3] Dearly beloved, taking all care to write unto you concerning your common salvation, I was under a necessity to write unto you: to beseech you to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints. [4] For certain men are secretly entered in, (who were written of long ago unto this judgment,) ungodly men, turning the grace of our Lord God into riotousness, and denying the only sovereign Ruler, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [5] I will therefore admonish you, though ye once knew all things, that Jesus, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, did afterwards destroy them that believed not:

[6] And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day. [7] As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the neighbouring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to fornication, and going after other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire. [8] In like manner these men also defile the flesh, and despise dominion, and blaspheme majesty. [9] When Michael the archangel, disputing with the devil, contended about the body of Moses, he durst not bring against him the judgment of railing speech, but said: The Lord command thee. [10] But these men blaspheme whatever things they know not: and what things soever they naturally know, like dumb beasts, in these they are corrupted.

[11] Woe unto them, for they have gone in the way of Cain: and after the error of Balaam they have for reward poured out themselves, and have perished in the contradiction of Core. [12] These are spots in their banquets, feasting together without fear, feeding themselves, clouds without water, which are carried about by winds, trees of the autumn, unfruitful, twice dead, plucked up by the roots, [13] Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own confusion; wandering stars, to whom the storm of darkness is reserved for ever. [14] Now of these Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying: Behold, the Lord cometh with thousands of his saints, [15] To execute judgment upon all, and to reprove all the ungodly for all the works of their ungodliness, whereby they have done ungodly, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against God.

[16] These are murmurers, full of complaints, walking according to their own desires, and their mouth speaketh proud things, admiring persons for gain's sake. [17] But you, my dearly beloved, be mindful of the words which have been spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, [18] Who told you, that in the last time there should come mockers, walking according to their own desires in ungodlinesses. [19] These are they, who separate themselves, sensual men, having not the Spirit. [20] But you, my beloved, building yourselves upon your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,


[21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting. [22] And some indeed reprove, being judged: [23] But others save, pulling them out of the fire. And on others have mercy, in fear, hating also the spotted garment which is carnal. [24] Now to him who is able to preserve you without sin, and to present you spotless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, [25] To the only God our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory and magnificence, empire and power, before all ages, and now, and for all ages of ages. Amen.

An abortion advocate is not enough, now he appoints a euthanasia advocate to the Pontifical Academy for Life

I am beyond words.

https://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2017/06/new-pontifical-academy-of-life.html

New Pontifical Academy of Life Appointee Supports Euthanasia by Starvation

An ethics study group for the Italian Jesuit magazine Aggiornamenti Sociali, headed by Fr. Maurizio Chiodi, a newly appointed member of the Pontifical Academy for Life and a theologian of the Northern Italian Theological Faculty of Milan, has joined Italian euthanasia activists in supporting a bill that would legalize physician assisted suicide and/or euthanasia in certain cases. The bill has already been approved by the House and is now before the Italian Senate. 

Fr. Chiodi's study group  cites "proportionalism" to argue that terminally ill cancer patients and those in a persistent vegetative state (like Terri Schaivo - pictured here) should have a legal right to refuse food and water, or to create an advanced healthcare directives for such a euthanasia by starvation and dehydration. Fr. Chiodi's group writes:
2. ... A democratic state is made up of citizens committed to respecting the different ethics, world views and religions, in a context of mutual inclusion and sincere hospitality without trying to impose itself on others..... 

5. A controversial issue concerns artificial nutrition and hydration (ANH), which the draft of the law includes among the treatments that can be refused in an AHD [advance healthcare directive] or advance planning. In Catholic thought it is often stated that these means are always obligatory; in reality, ANH [artificial nutrition and hydration]​ is a medical and technical intervention and as such does not avoid the judgment of proportionality. Nor can it be excluded that sometimes it is no longer able to achieve the purpose of providing nourishment to the patient or the alleviation of suffering. The former case can occur in the illness of terminal cancer; the second [can occur] in a vegetative state which is extend indefinitely, if the patient has previously stated that this prospect is unacceptable. Since it can not be ruled out that in cases like these the ANH [artificial nutrition and hydration] ​becomes a disproportionate treatment, its inclusion among the refusable treatments is correct."


​On the contrary Pope St. John Paul II clearly refuted Fr. Chiodi in this matter in a 2004 address:

4. Medical doctors and health-care personnel, society and the Church have moral duties toward these persons from which they cannot exempt themselves without lessening the demands both of professional ethics and human and Christian solidarity.

The sick person in a vegetative state, awaiting recovery or a natural end, still has the right to basic health care (nutrition, hydration, cleanliness, warmth, etc.), and to the prevention of complications related to his confinement to bed. He also has the right to appropriate rehabilitative care and to be monitored for clinical signs of eventual recovery.

I should like particularly to underline how the administration of water and food, even when provided by artificial means, always represents a natural means of preserving life, not a medical act. Its use, furthermore, should be considered, in principle, ordinary and proportionate, and as such morally obligatory, insofar as and until it is seen to have attained its proper finality, which in the present case consists in providing nourishment to the patient and alleviation of his suffering.

The obligation to provide the "normal care due to the sick in such cases" (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Iura et Bona, p. IV) includes, in fact, the use of nutrition and hydration (cf. Pontifical Council "Cor Unum", Dans le Cadre, 2, 4, 4; Pontifical Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers, Charter of Health Care Workers, n. 120). The evaluation of probabilities, founded on waning hopes for recovery when the vegetative state is prolonged beyond a year, cannot ethically justify the cessation or interruption of minimal care for the patient, including nutrition and hydration. Death by starvation or dehydration is, in fact, the only possible outcome as a result of their withdrawal. In this sense it ends up becoming, if done knowingly and willingly, true and proper euthanasia by omission.​

The Pontifical Academy for Life's 2000 Document, "Respect for the Dignity of the Dying" as confirmed by John Paul II similarly stated: "One must always provide ordinary care (including artificial nutrition and hydration), palliative treatment, especially the proper therapy for pain, in a dialogue with the patient which keeps him informed."


​Likewise, a 2007 declaration by the CDF , confirmed by Pope Benedict XVI, declared:

First question: Is the administration of food and water (whether by natural or artificial means) to a patient in a “vegetative state” morally obligatory except when they cannot be assimilated by the patient’s body or cannot be administered to the patient without causing significant physical discomfort?

Response: Yes. The administration of food and water even by artificial means is, in principle, an ordinary and proportionate means of preserving life. It is therefore obligatory to the extent to which, and for as long as, it is shown to accomplish its proper finality, which is the hydration and nourishment of the patient. In this way suffering and death by starvation and dehydration are prevented.

Second question: When nutrition and hydration are being supplied by artificial means to a patient in a “permanent vegetative state”, may they be discontinued when competent physicians judge with moral certainty that the patient will never recover consciousness?
Response: No. A patient in a “permanent vegetative state” is a person with fundamental human dignity and must, therefore, receive ordinary and proportionate care which includes, in principle, the administration of water and food even by artificial means.

February ​2017 also saw the publication of a problematic update to the Pontifical Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers's New Charter for Health Care Workers, paragraph 152 of which affirms: 
"​Nutrition and hydration, even artificially administered are to be considered among the basic cares due to the dying, when they do not become too burdensome or are of some benefit. Their unjustified withdrawal can have the significance of a true and proper act of euthanasia."
The 1995 older version of this text admittedly left room for clarity on this issue, as it had stated in paragraph 120: "... The administration of food and liquids, even artificially, is part of the normal treatment always due to the patient when this is not burdensome for him: their undue suspension could be real and properly so-called euthanasia."

It should be noted that besides his stance in support of euthanasia, Fr. Chiodi also opposes the Church's perennial teaching on contraception. 


Pope not only ignores the Cardinals' dubia, but their request for an Audience

The Pope not only ignores the legitimate questions, the dubia, of four leading Cardinals of the Church, he even ignores their plea for an audience.

Remember friends; your job and mine is to be faithful to Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Etneral Father begotten from the beginning, consubstantial with Him and the Second Person in the Unity of the Godhead of the Holy Trinity. Your job is to be faithful to Him. Let us praise the FATHER, SON & HOLY SPIRIT, let us praise Him forever. Put not your trust in princes or popes. You must remain faithful to Jesus and to His Church and to the Papacy as an institution and the Magisterium of teaching of Holy Scripture and Holy Tradition. You must be faithful to Christ, not to men.

http://www.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/full-text-of-dubia-cardinals-letter-asking-pope-for-an-audience


 Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, the archbishop emeritus of Bologna, asked for an audience on behalf of the four 'dubia' cardinals.
“Most Holy Father,
It is with a certain trepidation that I address myself to Your Holiness, during these days of the Easter season. I do so on behalf of the Most Eminent Cardinals: Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke, Joachim Meisner, and myself.
We wish to begin by renewing our absolute dedication and our unconditional love for the Chair of Peter and for Your august person, in whom we recognize the Successor of Peter and the Vicar of Jesus: the “sweet Christ on earth,” as Saint Catherine of Siena was fond of saying. We do not share in the slightest the position of those who consider the See of Peter vacant, nor of those who want to attribute to others the indivisible responsibility of the Petrine munus. We are moved solely by the awareness of the grave responsibility arising from the munus of cardinals: to be advisers of the Successor of Peter in his sovereign ministry. And from the Sacrament of the Episcopate, which “has placed us as bishops to pasture the Church, which He has acquired with his blood” (Acts 20:28).
On September 19, 2016 we delivered to Your Holiness and to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith five dubia, asking You to resolve uncertainties and to bring clarity on some points of the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia.
Not having received any response from Your Holiness, we have reached the decision to ask You, respectfully and humbly, for an Audience, together if Your Holiness would like. We attach, as is the practice, an Audience Sheet in which we present the two points we wish to discuss with you.
Most Holy Father,
A year has now gone by since the publication of Amoris Laetitia. During this time, interpretations of some objectively ambiguous passages of the post-synodal Exhortation have publicly been given that are not divergent from, but contrary to, the permanent Magisterium of the Church. Despite the fact that the Prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith has repeatedly declared that the doctrine of the Church has not changed, numerous statements have appeared from individual Bishops, Cardinals, and even Episcopal Conferences, approving what the Magisterium of the Church has never approved. Not only access to the Holy Eucharist for those who objectively and publicly live in a situation of grave sin, and intend to remain in it, but also a conception of moral conscience contrary to the Tradition of the Church. And so it is happening — how painful it is to see this! — that what is sin in Poland is good in Germany, that what is prohibited in the archdiocese of Philadelphia is permitted in Malta. And so on. One is reminded of the bitter observation of B. Pascal: “Justice on this side of the Pyrenees, injustice on the other; justice on the left bank of the river, injustice on the right bank.”
Numerous competent lay faithful, who are deeply in love with the Church and staunchly loyal to the Apostolic See, have turned to their Pastors and to Your Holiness in order to be confirmed in the Holy Doctrine concerning the three sacraments of Marriage, Confession, and the Eucharist. And in these very days, in Rome, six lay faithful, from every Continent, have presented a very well-attended study seminar with the meaningful title: “Bringing clarity.”
Faced with this grave situation, in which many Christian communities are being divided, we feel the weight of our responsibility, and our conscience impels us to ask humbly and respectfully for an Audience.
May Your Holiness remember us in Your prayers, as we pledge to remember You in ours. And we ask for the gift of Your Apostolic Blessing.
Carlo Card. Caffarra
Rome, April 25, 2017
Feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist
*
AUDIENCE SHEET
1. Request for clarification of the five points indicated by the dubia; reasons for this request.
2. Situation of confusion and disorientation, especially among pastors of souls, in primis parish priests.”

Are you a member of the Arian Catholic Church?

A few years ago, I was at a dinner at my sister's. A cousin was there, a former Resurrectionist Priest who left the priesthood of Jesus Christ some time back in the 1970's and married a former Mother Superior. When he "blest" dinner, because he was a priest after all and my sister seemed to think it appropriate I interrupted him: "You have forgotten something Wayne, let me remind you, In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost."

After dinner we got in to a conversation where he told me that Jesus was not God, just the most perfect man. I was disgusted by this heretic and said, "Oh, so you're an Arian."

You see, he is not the only one. 

I think the majority of priests who went to seminary between 1950 and 1980 are Arians.

Including this one.

After all, if He isn't God, why would you kneel?

What I want to know, is how does Guido Marini and any other priest or monsignor of any faith continue to serve in their roles. Are they not scandalise by the behaviour of a man who refuses to kneel before the "very God," but can grovel on the ground to wash the feet of man? 

Or women.

James Martin, S.J. a man desperately in need of God, a priest adrift from the reality of Christ

Can there be any doubt that the mind of James Martin, a Jesuit priest is distorted beyond any semblance of reason in matter of the faith?

In an interview with the New York Times, Martin stated, “Pretty much everyone’s lifestyle is sinful,”

Image result for james martin s.j.Martin recently stated that the catechism needs to be changed. Homosexual orientation is "objectively disordered," and the acts are "intrinsically disordered." Martin, and other to be sure, (we know who you even though we won't name you) wishes it to be "differently ordered."

This is a blasphemy; for it accuses God of creating a man or woman who will, beyond their control, live a lifestyle based upon repugnant sin that would destine them to a life of suffering and an eternity cut off from God. What kind of god would do this? Certainly not Christian God, the Catholic God, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


It would be a god who would be evil, a god who would not deserve worship or adoration. A false god, a liar from the beginning.

There was a time when a priest's superiors would discipline this kind of priest. The fact that they do not proves that they not only agree with him, but that they are filled with hate. If they truly loved him, as a priest, a spiritual son, they would remove him from public ministry and get him the deep spiritual help he so desperately needs.

James Martin, S.J. is unfit to be in the public square commenting on the Catholic faith. A man unfit for priesthood. A man with a distorted mind crying out to the world for help and not having enough sense where to go to find it.


God help him.

Pope Bergoglio appoints abortion advocate to Life Academy - Cardinal accuses Catholics of not understanding "love"

Image

The Pope of Rome has appointed a pro-abortion advocate Oxford Professor, Nigel Biggar to the Pontifical Academy for Life.

Archbishop Paglia, an alleged apostle of Jesus Christ accuses Catholics who have raised their voices at this outrageous Bergoglian action as being "sensationalist," and not understanding what "love" is. This from the putrid example of a man who commissioned homosexualist erotic art for his Cathedral and wears funny sunglasses whilst swishing his drink.

Paglia is a disgrace, a man unfit for the high office he holds.

You must love as he reminds us all on Twitter.



Do you realize the crisis that the Church is in? Some will say, "the Church has always been in crisis." No, this is not true. They are ignorant of history. They are truly ignorant of the faith. 

The saying, "the fish rots from the head first" has never been more appropriate then it is right now. 

Please try to defend your rotten fruit of Vatican II or your Novus Ordoist culture.

You can't.

Vox sends his congratulations to Stephan Ackermann, Reinhard Marx and the rest of the pathetic sons of Satan in the Diocese of Trier

Trier, the oldest diocese in Germany will see 96% of its parishes close.

Trier is headed by Stephan Ackermann, a rather pathetic example of a bishop.

https://onepeterfive.com/oldest-german-diocese-close-96-parishes/

http://wdtprs.com/blog/2017/06/disaster-in-liberal-germany-leads-to-massive-parish-crisis-closures/

Here is some wisdom from little Stephan.





When in the name of all that is good and holy are you going to wake up?

Surely you expected this right? 

Where are all you "neo-caths," you "conservative" Catholics, worshipping at your Novus Ordo Church of Man?

How do you like it now when you papal positivists and papolaters have to wrap your heads around the complete unravelling of Humanae Vitae.

The enemy has seized the Catholic Church by the throat. He has taken over, if not literally possessed, a great many in the Church.

Adultery is now okay and not an impediment to Holy Communion.

Sodomitical behaviour is just fine and not worth shaming people by calling them out of their sin.

Now, it is contraception.


Yeah, go ahead, you go right on with your papal positivism and your Novus Ordo mindset.

When will you wake up?

What the hell is it going to take?

St. Augustine has a word for these churchmen of today

Joos van Wassenhove St Augustine Oil on wood, 119 x 62 cm Musée du Louvre, Paris

In Matins, this morning, Tuesday of the Octave of Pentecost, we read a verse from the Gospel of St. John and a commentary by St. Augustine.

There are churchmen today at all levels of ecclesiastical and priestly office who are condemned by Augustine of Hippo. They will tell you that it is okay just to live a “good life,” that one must just “live good lives but not to become Christian.” They will tell others that it is better to be an atheist than a bad Christian and that atheists will go to heaven. Some will tell you to just be a “good Muslim,’ or a “good Hindoo” or even, a “good Jew.” Some of these who said this have even been declared Saints. They will tell you that there is no real need to go through the door to join the sheepfold.

St. Augustine has a word for them and with it, he concludes his homily.

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to St. John10:1-10
At that time: Jesus said unto the Pharisees: Amen, amen, I say unto you, he that entereth not by the door into the sheep-fold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber but he that entereth by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. And so on.
Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo. 45th Tract on John.
In the words of the Gospel which are this day read, the Lord has spoken unto us in similitudes, touching His flock, and the Door whereby entry is made into their fold. The Pagans therefore may say, "We have good lives," but if they enter not in the Door, what doth that profit them whereof they make their boast? Good life is profitable to a man if it lead unto life everlasting, but if he does not have life everlasting, what shall his good life profit him? Neither indeed can it be truly said that they live good lives, who are either so blinded as not to know, or so puffed up as to despise, the end of a good life. And no man can have a true and certain hope of life everlasting, unless he know the true Life, Which is Christ, and enter in by that Door into the sheepfold.
There are many such, who try to persuade men to live good lives but not to be Christians. These are they who would fain "climb up some other way," "for to kill and to destroy," and are not as the Good Shepherd, Who is come to keep and to save. There have been philosophers who have treated many subtle questions of right and wrong, who have been the authors of many distinctions and definitions, who have completed many exceedingly clever arguments, who have filled many books, and have proclaimed their own wisdom with braying trumpets. These dared to say to men: "Follow us embrace our school of thought, and you will find therein the secret of an happy life." But these were not of them who enter in by the Door; they came not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.
Touching these, what shall I say? Behold, the Pharisees themselves read of Christ, and therefore talked of Christ they looked for His coming, and when He came, they knew Him not. They boasted that they themselves were among the Seers, that is, of the wise ones, and they denied Christ, and entered not in by the Door. Therefore they, if they led away any, led them away only to kill and to destroy, not to free them. So much for them. Now let us see if all they who boast the name of Christian enter in by the Door. Some there are, and their number cannot be reckoned, who not only boast that they themselves are among the Seers, but would fain appear as though their hearts were enlightened by Christ but they are heretics.

Octave of Pentecost - Paul VI wept, and we've been weeping ever since!

Veni Sancti Spiritus. The ethereal chant of the Sequence for Pentecost Sunday which is proper to the Mass in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite as well as the Extraordinary Form.

Was this sung in your parish in the Ordinary Form (OF); even in English as you can find at the link above? 

Was it even just read after the Second Reading and before the Alleluia? 

No? then get out of the Nervous Disordered liturgy and find the traditional Latin Mass where you will be properly nourished and not suffer liturgical banality and abuse any longer. Stop being a liturgical masochist.

We are now in the Octave of Pentecost that was unfortunately lost in the Ordinary Form (OF). An "Octave" is the eight day period following a major feast, a prolongation of that feast. In the traditional, there are three, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost and of course in the OF, only Christmas and Easter. Prior to 1962 there were more including Epiphany. Others included Corpus Christi, Sacred Heart, Sts. Peter and Paul and more of lower rank. 

There is this little story from Father Z.  It seems that he was told this story by an elderly, retired Papal Ceremoniere or a Master of Ceremonies who (according to him) was present at the event about to be recounted.

The Monday after Pentecost in 1970 His Holiness Pope Paul VI rose bright and early and went to the chapel for Holy Mass. Instead of the red he expected, there were green vestments laid out for him. 

He queried the MC assigned that day, "What on earth are these for?  This is the Octave of Pentecost!  Where are the red vestments?"

"Santità," quoth the MC, "this is now Tempus ‘per annum’.  It is green, now. The Octave of Pentecost is abolished."

"Green? That cannot be!", said the Pope, "Who did that?" 

"Holiness, you did."

And Paul VI wept.

And the rest of us have been weeping ever since.

And then there is the Vigil...

London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down

For the third time in recent weeks, twice in London and once in Manchester, England's people have been the target of Mohammedan terrorist losers. 

The first duty of government is the protection of its people. England has let in to its land, tens of thousands from Europe on the EU passport. It has allowed the return of thousands from the jihadist battlefields of Iraq and Syria. 

The British Government is responsible for the continuing slaughter. The Mayor of London is complicit. Even Her Majesty the Queen and the Heir to the throne, Charles, Prince of Wales are both feckless, cowardly and dastardly betrayers of the people.

England is reaping what it has sowed.

Five hundred years ago, England's Kings and scoundrels killed their own people. They were Catholic and they rejected the Truth. They butchered monks and lay alike. They set the country back centuries in literacy and social development. They put this once great Catholic land on a path that has led directly to what happened on London Bridge.

The English people must rise up and demand action. Arrest, internment and mass deportation is necessary of those who do not renounce terrorism and have jihadist sympathies must be done.

Combined with an immediate calling out to God for forgiveness, mercy and grace to restore this once great land.

Canada is not far behind.

Modern day Jesuits call St. Jude the Apostle a liar!

The first three readings from Matins today for the Vigil of Pentecost are taken from the Epistle of St Jude.

Is St. Jude just a panacea for Catholics with hopeless causes? Is he just a pious little devotion? St. Jude, also known as Thaddeus and a cousin of the LORD had a lot to say. Shall we read it?



Lesson from the letter of St. Jude the Apostle
Jude 1:1-4
1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James: to them that are beloved in God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called.
2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and charity be fulfilled.
3 Dearly beloved, taking all care to write unto you concerning your common salvation, I was under a necessity to write unto you: to beseech you to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints.
4 For certain men are secretly entered in, (who were written of long ago unto this judgment,) ungodly men, turning the grace of our Lord God into riotousness, and denying the only sovereign Ruler, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

5 I will therefore admonish you, though ye once knew all things, that Jesus, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, did afterwards destroy them that believed not:
6 And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day.
7 As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the neighbouring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to fornication, and going after other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire.
8 In like manner these men also defile the flesh, and despise dominion, and blaspheme majesty.

9 When Michael the archangel, disputing with the devil, contended about the body of Moses, he durst not bring against him the judgment of railing speech, but said: The Lord command thee.
10 But these men blaspheme whatever things they know not: and what things soever they naturally know, like dumb beasts, in these they are corrupted.
11 Woe unto them, for they have gone in the way of Cain: and after the error of Balaam they have for reward poured out themselves, and have perished in the contradiction of Core.
12 These are spots in their banquets, feasting together without fear, feeding themselves, clouds without water, which are carried about by winds, trees of the autumn, unfruitful, twice dead, plucked up by the roots,

13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own confusion; wandering stars, to whom the storm of darkness is reserved for ever.


The Apostle Jude has a lot to say to the Jesuits of today, particularly to Arturo Sosa and James Martin who have lost the faith, if they ever really had it, and teach lies and distortions on the Devil who is called Satan and on his most favourite vice, sodomy, to which James Martin is obsessed with.

When will the good Jesuits out there, and I know they are there as some actually read this blog, when will they call out their derelict brothers? 


"A slap in the face?" Well, then turn the cheek so we can slap you again!

Related imageMarcelo Sanchez Sorondo, an alleged descendant of the Apostles of Jesus Christ is the head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Sorondo has referred to the Americans pulling out of the scandalous, globalist, Marxist Paris climate accord as being a "slap in the face."

A "slap in the face," Even in this, he mocks a phase so associated with Our Blessed Lord.

This is the same ecclesiastical nincompoop that said that Pope Bergoglio can bind Catholics under the pain of sin who do not believe that global warming is a sin at the equivalence of abortion. 

Yes, he really said that.

The Pope has no authority to invent new sins, he is not a god. He is a very fallible man and Sorondo is a "loser."

Sorondo wants to speak of a "slap in the face." And what does this clown of an Archbishop think that faithful Catholics have been suffering for four years since the Jesuit hordes have taken over the Church emboldened by the embedded homosexualists and globalists.

There are fossils of ferns and palms in Greenland, Alaska and northern Alberta. I was taught this in school decades ago. A short Internet search will prove this to you. Therefore, we can conclude that the earth was warmer. 

Is there climate change? 

Yes.

The climate changes and then it changes again and then it changes back. 

What these intellectual morons call Co2 is carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is absorbed by green things, trees grass, and the petunias in your garden. What these created things do is give off oxygen which other created things, like people and animals use to breathe and live. Therefore, the more C02, the more oxygen, the more life.

God created all of this. He set it all in motion. We are to be responsible with His creation. We should enjoy the meat he gave us but raise the animals happy and healthy and slaughter them humanely. We should not pollute the water and air which we all breathe, we should all plant trees, I've put in two lilacs, a mountain ash, a magnolia, three birch and a crimson maple on my property in the last twenty years. Do you think I've not covered my "carbon footprint."

These globalists and the ones embedded in the Vatican are liars. They are doing the work of the Devil who is Satan himself, in whom they do not believe.

They have created a false church and a false religion and they are going along with those who seek to take over the world and control all wealth and thought for their own evil purposes. All of them, are of the Antichrist no matter what colour of cassock they wear.

God bless and protect Donald John Trump, the President of the United States.

The next slap for Sorondo may not be as pleasant.
