Surprising Developments as Pope Francis Is Sympathetic To SSPX following Seminaries Visitations By Vatican Officials – Pontiff called the SSPX clergy and people “Catholics’ working towards full reconciliation” – wow
In an effort for uniting Western Christianity and Eastern Orthodoxy He has just elevated to top 3 priorities of his Pontificate, requesting Catholics pray about the Eastern Orthodox 2016 Synod and the Pope’s request for the East to take back to their Synod his unification considerations – Even the people that are anti-Francis have to admit this is impressive
He wants the reconciliation of the Orthodox and the Traditionalists – He also clearly cited the doctrinal differences in the East as “something that is not ‘invisible’ but needs to be struggled through”
Even from a man-made climate change theory perspective – whose theory is about as solid as Darwin’s WHAT IF –his key advisers are letting him know that with the ‘type” of temperament and culture of the East these communities NEED a unifying reason for what the East calls “to save face” and therefore something everyone has to do – regardless of the premises
Stranger things and circumstances have brought schismatic groups back to ‘one’ as evidenced from some of the great ecclesiastical history books and true stories
I’m willing to hit the required ‘working towards Charity as a virtue’ reset button on this Pontificate and ask for forgiveness
On the subject of Pontiffs – Saint John Paul II and Benedict XVI responded together to US Supreme Court’s Marriage decision
And as the former White House now “The Rainbow House” suggests legislation to remove the logo from US money “One Nation Under God” and change to “One Nation Under Pride”
We as Catholics have to simultaneously begin to lower “self” and “pride” in ourselves as a counter balance in the world – As John The Baptist prepared us for in the Liturgy – We must decrease while He increases (at the exact same time that secular culture meets us on the road going in the opposite direction)
Maybe the protestant legacy philosophy and theology , can be pointed to, over hundreds of years of work of wearing down the walls of singular Catholic theocratic authority to personal autonomy of Christians through their own personal interpretation of “their own form of Jesus” as a large indirect cause coupled with the work of international ecclesial Freemasonry but not the ‘direct cause’
When it came down to the gun It’s always Catholics that pull the trigger in every century in every apostasy in history It was a Catholic that pulled the trigger !
In this case it is again the Irish and Irish /American Catholics that lead the way in Apostatizing the US
An 80 year old Irish Catholic Apostate , Anthony Kennedy throws the United States Supreme Court decision over the margin
For the month of June the US flag should be flown upside down side by side with the flag of the Emerald Island (in the US and Ireland) in front of every public building in the country
Obergefell v. Hodges immediately becomes the precedent case enshrined in law to be studied by every Law entity, Catholic college and bar association in the country
The permanent boiler plate of the Catholic poster boy for pseudo marriage was written ( like the obituaries before famous people die) and posted to Wikipedia even before the decision came down
Catholic Poster Boy is put up in gay bar men’s bathrooms
The majority of the US Supreme Court justices are Catholics and they are the ones led by Kennedy who himself wrote and handed you this pseudo marriage law
Justice Kennedy, the author of the Court’s opinion handed it down on the 2nd anniversary of Windsor vs. the United States (2013) that overturned DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) and to which he also wrote the court’s opinion blatantly ignoring precedent in the 1972 Baker v. Nelson case, which ruled there is no constitutional right to homosexual “marriage.”72′
In response Justice Scalia – a traditional Catholic – who regularly attends Traditional Mass and whose Son is a traditional Catholic Priest led the writings on the dissent that did an outstanding job of defending the US Constitution – the Declaration of Independence and the 14th Amendment
He was joined by Justice Thomas and Justice Alito – The majority of the Supreme Court are made up of Catholics with a Jewish minority and there are no Protestants currently on the Supreme Court nor have their been since 2010
Everyone should read the dissent as it is being touted, not as a Catholic response, but the best Supreme Court Justice dissent ever written in the history of the US and will be studied for some time to come by all types of legal professions and social historians (Read on National Review for objectivity’s sake) at the following link
Then in probably the best background & breakdown of the US Supreme Court in relation to this issue is written in both Part #1 and Part #2 by Christine Niles –of CMTV talented Vietnamese/American Catholic law grad from Oxford and Notre Dame
Part #1 Highlights Justice Scalia but gives the overall demographic and breakdown of the Court
Justice Clarence Thomas gives an excellent and eloquent concurrence to the Scalia dissent and highlights the ruinous affects that will domino through the former freedoms in this country
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The Supreme Court’s conservative justices lambasted today’s majority opinion that the U.S. Constitution grants an inalienable right to same-sex “marriage,” emphasizing the threat the opinion poses to religious liberty, the democratic process, and the institution of marriage even as it is redefined.
On this day of Solemnity of the Apostle Martyrs Saints Peter and Paul it would be good to remember their symbols of Word and Deed in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition are not separable
Peter was crucified upside-down with the symbol of the rooster on the cross beam and he is buried directly beneath the main Altar of Saint Peter’s of Vatican City and lives in testament and symbol next the Lord’s Word in Saint Paul in infamy
The history of the construction – the evolution of the technology – the financing – the unions – all tied to the Sacred
The competition with him and his Sacred Architecture – partner Architect Lorenzo_Ghiberti (forced partnership by Italian merchants banking that is) and their relationship interactions with worker guild unions and the mason (pre-masonry masons) were amazing
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenzo_Ghiberti Their machines and animal drive hoist inventions were referred to and studied in detail as all massive Cathedral construction were by the Industrialists era – hundreds of years latter
Grand Churches and Cathedrals (all of which that were built prior to the Council) were also design for the acoustics of Liturgical music emanating from the Choir loft towards the high Altar
Millions of people built and designed Sacred Architecture this way for the majority of post -Resurrection salvation history for the purposes of salvation
Engineers and Sacred Architecture – Architects
Ties to Sacred Music
In keeping with this Sacred Tradition – The Center For Music and Liturgy at Yale University will present the Mass of the Divine Shepard at Carnegie Hall on Monday night June 29th @ 7:30pm
400 Voices and 600 Handbells – like a 1st Class High Mass in a Cathedral in the days of old
The persecutions will now begin as we will all see starting on Monday morning We will see Catholics accused and convicted of hate speech –
Catholic Church sermons monitored
Cake and dress makers jailed
Hall and Party Space providers dragged before judges – lives ruined
Generations of prestigious legacy Catholic elite families disgraced
Questionaires on job applications of whether you don’t believe to to be legal or not become legal to ask and CAN be used as criteria not to hire and eventually to fire
What will you do when they threaten you with the martyrdom of firing – jail – accusations and attempts of public disgracing
Will they scare you into silence ?
– Will you lie when filling out forms -? Will you no longer proclaim the Truth at family graduations- Baptisms – Confirmations and weddings Will you stand in the sin of silence – Will you succumb to fear ?
The post conciliar Church has brought this day upon us my friends and dusk sky has turned toward you and I my friends
A Davidic King at the black gate standing before vast numbers of the armies set to defend the last strong hold of the human race says to their Queen in Heaven just like Scripture says
“Thou art beautiful and fair O daughter of Jerusalem, as majestic as an army in battle array”
and the King then says to the outnumbered armies defending the last civilization of earth giving answer from the ranks of the Faithful Catholics as follows
Sons of Gondor Men of Rohan My brothers I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me A day may come when the courage of men fails when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship but it is not this day.
An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day !
This day we fight ! By all that you hold dear on this good earth – I bid you standO men of the west
Arise arise o riders of theoden (in these days) Spears shall be shaken – shields shall be splintered ! A sword day …a red day.….is upon us ….Ride now
We will ride to ruin (in the Glory of the one true God) and unto the world’s ending
The silence on the marriage debate from the liberal Bishops in Italy is so embarrassing to Catholics as is the turn-out display response of Catholics overshadowed by the Neocatechumen Way
That sub-plot story is summed up by saying the error of the silence of the Bishops cannot be responded to via using the voices of additional errors or “two wrongs cannot make a right-”
What is the Neocatechumen Way ?
Is it a cult ? Is it a new form of religion within the Catholic Church with alternate dogma- catechesis and an exegesis of it’s own- ?
Is it a heresy –?………..What is it ?-
First of all every movement in Catholicism has academics, it’s roots, it’s own art, it’s philosophy, and it’s theology that articulates it (right or wrong)
What is this movement’s roots – and philosophy?
This post and these links below attempt to investigate and answer that question
First of all the word neo- means “after”
The term used in traditional Catholicism called neo-Catholic refers to everyone that follows the liberal interactions and interpretations in post of the Vatican II Council
George Weigel for instance – the Catholic public speaker and author – decades ago was a traditional conservative Catholic – He is now neo-modern
I didn’t make this term up the Catholic world did
Weigel theologizes and justifies how all these late John Paul II ultra-ecumenism trajectory events that he began in the Church are very Catholic etc….etc…similar religious Universalism can be found in their Catholic Journal publication “First Things”
He’s now preaching a different religion – In essence he’s Neo
Just recently studying the philosophies of theologies of the neocatehumens I found more correctly these are the correct questions in need of posing to a wider community
If this is not a heresy is it then a new form of a new Christian Religion within the Church and if so what is it based on on ?
Every heresy category that has ever arisen into the Catholic Church and every heresy that will ever arise in Catholic history has already been addressed by the Roman Catholic Church in detail and had “legal and official” elements of ascent and approval within the Church
Which one does this fall under and what are the facts and details of it ?
Judaism had elements of mystical kabbalism within it that broke away from it after starting from within it like all movements What sat beside the kabbalism movement was gnostic dualism within the Church
It was the only heresy – “Christian Gnosticism” (greater than Islam, since Islam is actually an apostasy not a heresy) that was ever defined by the Church Fathers as being THE ONE (the only one) that almost destroyed the Catholic Church
And #2 The one form that will always re -raise its head into various forms throughout the rest of Salvation History as predicted by our own Church Fathers
Preconcilar Catholicism by contrast to Dualism Christianity is the Catholicism from the Patrology era that concluded in the early 400s AD, and went though the Council of Trent 1500s AD and all the way up to the Pontificate of Pius XII following WWII
Some of the hallmarks of preconcilar Catholicism are as follows
The theology of the created and uncreated elements of the Holy Spirit
The Mother of God as the Mediatrix of All Graces
The Hypostatic Nature of Jesus Christ (two wills and two natures in one person) presented in the form of a perennial repeated living blood-less Sacrifice
The veneration of the Intercession of Saints through their Novena Masses and Patronage
The daily Masses and prayers for the Dead and our reflection on their trajectory through the after life
The Mass as an ancient Rite of oblation of sin through “a victim” – with the propitiation of sin being the offering of the Sacrifice of God on earth to God the Father in exchange for not enacting his wrath upon you and your family but instead extending the offer to merge with this Triune entity
Mercy as interpreted as being offered to one willing to surrender their whole life to the Lord in exchange for their sins (this means no secular job) but martyrdom or religious life – that’s the authentic Mercy exchange – the rest is false Mercy-
These are some of the hallmarks of “Catholicism” that can be spotted or identified when they run against – philosophies – prayers – reflections – interpretations of Scripture and dogmas or lack there of in other forms
One clear example
One of the mistakes with offering two species of the Body AND the Blood to the congregants is a theological breach
Body and Blood are separated = death
During the Mass – We die with Christ on an Altar of Sacrifice
Body and Blood come together in Jesus and in the Catholic Priest in the form of the blood drops in the Body performed during the Consecration of the Canon of the Mass. Holy Communion is WITHIN the Sacred Host of the Body
The re-theologizing is significant. Now the Body itself is in degrees of less importance as a resulting 1 to 1 relationship.– The premature re-assembling in the Mass offered to the people in this way lowers the need or the importance of the physical Body and the rubrics associated with the Mystical Body of Christ are also in turn lowered by significant degrees
The Body the gnostics believe in will not accompany them into the next life – The dozen or more prayers said at the Catholic grave and the importance of the Catholic Cemetery go into dissolution
The Body re-uniting with Soul becomes ‘a concept of option’ in the new religion – Purgatory must then be frowned on The unimportance of the Body then by defacto domino effect introduces semi-acceptance of abortion – contraception – homosexuality and on and on
The soul’s real union with the body and the damned in the body or the salvation in the body is real- Michael Voris of CMTV explains it in much better detail than I am able to and in a better teacher/speaker format
Both versions You Tube and Vortex below – give excellent catechesis reference
Although the new religion rejects these things in words it’s actions….. in it’s theology – carries it out in practice
Lex Credendi Lex Orendi – The Way of Prayer becomes the way of belief
The pre-conciliar methods of prayer are a completely different way of belief and I can attest having lived on both sides of the two Catholic religions for more than a number of years
It’s beyond protestantized type of Catholicism often seen in the Charismatic movement – it’s the next evolution of it in theology
It is a form of gnosticsm that is typified in the “general neo-Vatican II” movement called the Neo-Catechumen Way
I provide you with some first round references into this study
There are more on the way – and I am also hoping to download a white paper from a well known Priest in the Homeletic and Pastoral Review (which is no longer published in print format but has articles for download on demand) that gets into the academic details of some of the same issues raised below and in order to share to a wider reflection
The evangelical lutheran theology and doctrine of the Neo-Catehcumen way by Marian T. Horvat
Am I wrong to say that this does not look Catholic in any way shape or form ?!
Let us study further the religion of Kiko and Carmen – The religion of the Sombrero Flamingo guitarist Kiko in the Kiko Way so that we can better understand what he is proposing to the Roman Catholic Church in it’s New Way
The Roman Catholic Church is under attack ………..from the inside !

A video response to the current see saw commentary in traditional Catholic circles
CMTV’s Michael Voris and Christine Niles walked through uncharted territory earlier this year in the breaking of old alliances when it aired commentary critical of The Remnant publication and video house which basically also serves as a similar traditional balancing effect on the other end of the spectrum of the current liberal pontificate and the increased numbers of Bishops in heretical positions of theological dissent
The Remnant’s attempt to end the division and unite the resistance movement towards Restoration, in setting the record straight, is remarkable. In this video Michael Matt interviews the president of the Catholic Lawyers Association Chris Ferrara on combing out the positions of the various Traditional sector positions
Unfortunately CMTV made some unfounded accusations of Michael Matt and Chris Ferrara that cannot be backed up with facts There were several accusations one of which is portraying them as being an arm of SSPX which is not correct – Everyone knows they are sympathetic to SSPX but so is our “in communion” Ecclesia Dei organizations as well as within the circles of the various levels of Rome….. so no surprise there
What many might not be aware of is that the much respected Wanderer (Catholic newspaper) had a split in the years that followed the Council implementation and the new Mass that resulted in the arm of the Wanderer, in the faction of Michael Matt’s father and uncle spliting from the Wanderer and forming the Remnant- (traditional Catholic news media )
Michael Voris making the statement that they (CMTV) are really the ones following in the foot-steps of and standing on the shoulders of the late great American German theologian Dietrich Von Hildebrand is not well shored up by facts
Dietrich Von Hildebrand was a highly respected theologian one of the greats of the 20th century and he confronted the Pope together with more than several Bishops and Cardinals about the tragic theological mistakes of the new Mass and some of the Vatican II theological documents errors and he went on “the record” publicly
Dietrich Von Hildebrand (and his great wife & author who has survived him and writes for the Remnant as well as several other traditional Catholic publications) was in lock step with Michael Matt’s father and uncle & the Remnant These people actually contributed to preventing a modern day 1095AD schism of the Church – So to accuse them – former friends in traditional Catholic journalistic circles of suddenly being schismatic and SSPX (which is a large international Catholic movement) of being a small schismatic sect is inaccurate to say the least
As publicly stated by multiple Cardinals that continue to mitigate towards re-unification “Calling them schismatics is NOT the position of the Catholic Church” full stop – The official position is that they are “ ‘ Catholics’ in an irregular Canonical status” and the Excommunication of their 4 Bishops (now 5) had been lifted by our former great Pope Benedict XVI and still stands in effect in both his declaration and his interpretation of Canon Law
Admittedly we are fans of Michael Voris and CMTV but his lack of objectivity on the Pope contrasted with his willingness to go after the Bishops and analyze their often heretical statements down to the gravity of each Bishop’s sin and what level of hell that they would descend to if passing away tonight without repentance is not balanced with the fact that many of these Bishops are following this radically liberal Pontificate to the letter and that the blame clearly (although shared ) has to reside higher up – So there IS a form of denial within the denial (ghost) busters of our era
While name calling of traditional Catholics and ill treatment continues by the current Vatican administration and many of its Bishops continues, in same fashion, the embrace of true schismatics like the Waldensian evangelicals of Italy -with Pope Francis having just told the world the Catholic Church has sinned against them in the past?! just leaves everyone speechless
Do you realize this Pope just declared SAINT POPE PIUS X lives in SIN IN HIS GRAVE for telling the Catholic world that the Waldensian Evangelicals are erred and schismatics ?!
I cannot see where the starkly contrasting dichotomies that go forth every single day between the two Churches can continue to exist in one Church for much longer- The 100th year anniversary of Fatima will see it all come to a head
If anyone wants to examine the late great Dietrich Von Hildebrand actual public letter to the Pope on the Vatican II subject and the new Mass (and what he actually said to the Pope and his administration) in all it’s splendor it can be found at this link recently re-published below
Dietrich Von Hildebrand Confrontation Of Pope Paul VI – On Vatican II And The New Mass
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue had the following offering to Muslims ” we wish you the fruits of Ramadan”
And then “for a peaceful and joyful celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the celebration that marks the end of Ramadan.’
The full text of the transcription of heretical message the Cardinal gave can be found in the below link within the Vatican Radio news story
Ramadan for people unaware is traditionally kicked off in Islamic majority countries by some major act of explosion or violence against infidels (non-believers in Mohammadansim)
Every Supreme Pontiff from the 8th century beginnings of this fictions religion (along with every ranking Curial Congregation of the Holy See ) all the way up to Vatican II called this an evil religion – It’s in every Vatican archive that was ever recorded
How do we go from that interpretation of our religion that it is NOT the God of Abraham that they follow to this new Catholic Church within the Catholic Church teachings ?!
Was every Pope and Curial official and every Papal proclamation for over 1300 years wrong ?! And have the post Conciliar Popes and Cardinals achieved a reception of a new divine revelation – Who specifically gave them these revelations ?
Vatican Radio News – 06-19-15
Greetings to Muslims for Ramadan, ‘Id al-FitVatican Radio) For the Islamic Month of Ramadan and the feast of Eid al-Fitr, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue has published a Message to Muslims entitled “Christians and Muslims: Together to counter violence perpetrated in the name of religion”.
In the Message, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the President of the Council, offers best wishes to Muslims “for a peaceful and joyful celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the celebration that marks the end of Ramadan.
Cardinal Tauran notes the sufferings of Muslims and others caused by violence. “We are all aware of the gravity of these crimes in themselves,” he says. “However, what makes them even more heinous is the attempt to justify them in the name of religion.” He notes the duty of public authorities to protect people and property from the violence of terrorists, and speaks of the importance of education. “All those who are involved in the education of the youth and in the various educational spaces should teach the sacred character of life and the dignity that derives from it of every person, regardless of his or her ethnicity, religion, culture, social position or political choice.” No one, he adds, can kill another in the name of God: “This would be a double crime: against God and against the person himself.”
The world also has great need of prayer, Cardinal Tauran said: “There is great need of our prayer: for justice, for peace and security in the world; for those who are far from the right path of life and who commit violence in the name of religion, that they might return to God and change [their] life; for the poor and the sick.”
Cardinal Tauran concludes the Message “With Pope Francis, we wish you that the fruits of Ramadan and the joy of ‘Id al-Fitr may bring about peace and prosperity, enhancing your human and spiritual growth.”
You can find the full text of the (link) Message for the Month of Ramadan and ‘Id al-Fitr, “Christians and Muslims: Together to counter violence perpetrated in the name of religion” at the website of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.
Apparently the Cardinal has never read direct Sura passages from Quran that details out not only permission for violent advances against (Christians) “the people of the book” but the “obligation” of muslims once they become the majority in a particular land – The entire country of France for example is within 30 months of becoming a majority of islam and then via the Quran they are “required” to institute Sharia law amongst themselves !
As for this supposed Interreligious Dialogue Council it’s beyond denial and propaganda it is what is categorized in Catholicism as false ecumenism – It’s the under pinning of the trajectory of the philosophies and theologies of a failed Vatican II ideology on religious universalism that has run it’s course and is responsible for the dissolution of the Catholic Church to the heavily debated numbers that run anywhere from between 1/3 to 1/2 of the Catholic Church that has been dissolved in it’s wake
Right behind it 1300 years latter and within our own Church and theology are regular ecumenical events spear headed by a new religion being formed within the Catholic Church called the Neocatechumen Way
Author and president of the Catholic Lawyers guild Christopher Ferrara wrote an expose’ book on the topic called “The Great Façade” to which he clearly identifies it’s post conciliar implementation arm for part#2 as a “Judaized, semi-gnostic” sect [referring to the controversial} Neocatechumenal Way]
If you REALLY understand it theologically it’s a religion that is headed ideologically for rulers-ship by Sharia law
In this country the propaganda is even thicker – It’s turning into laws left and right that will make this type of ecumenism of universal religion a law
The media corporation Clear Channel, owner of one of the largest amounts of public billboard space, is regularly posting ads and huge billboards around the country via jihad funded Muslim Brotherhood groups while prohibiting all requests to all public advertisements and billboards that are critical of Muhammad – The Spencer site spells it out with evidence you’ll never see or hear on progandABC or progandCBS or PropagandaMSNBC…CNN ect…
To say that the Quran is a book of peace are words of ignorance taking advantage of a non-scholarly generation that have never read what the Quran actually says It calls for a religion by sword These insane religious ecumenist Cardinals should also be reminded that the actual Muhammad the man contracted marriage with a 6 year old and consummated the marriage when she was 9 years old as a matter of public record and extols his Muslim brothers to follow his example in all things
The Rosary of Our Lady and the Sacrifice of the Mass are truly the only real weapons against this advance
As always we must start off with the two sides of the coin of the dichotomies, and in always first asking the Lord’s forgiveness in our own failings and then we acknowledge without denial, the crisis within the Catholic Church and two Churches( and at least two major schools of thought) within the one Church, seemingly diametrically opposed to one another on every issue including one key component within Catholic Restoration = Sacred Architecture We then pilgrimage out towards the start of our grand journey
We see here amongst the parish closings- mergers and Cathedral renovations what the trajectory of the “other” school of thought is
Multi-use designs of Cathedrals that violate Sacred Architecture of space dedicated to God herein happening in Berlin but soon to get underway in NYC with several billion dollars worth of Sacred art and architecture and Churches in the sling shot for divestiture in NY – Sacred Architectural societies coming in from other lands to help persuade and differentiate what should not be sold off from what cannot be sold off and then the complex methods of relocating Sacred items of antiquity
Church architecture is geometrically designed for the acoustics of voices emanating from a choir loft towards the main Altar
It’s not meant to be the Church attic storage – The Lord designed it for a Sacred purpose that served way over a dozen centuries ! and cannot be disposed of by one generation’s philosophical ideologies in less than one generation – it cannot
When a person comes in from outside Christendom and sees the Sacred Architecture interior of a true temple of God – smells what that temple is meant to smell like during worship – hears the sounds of God thundering from above their heads–hears the Word of God from the Parapet surrounded by a procession of torch bearers and incense and then sees it all lead up to the Lamb becoming the Lion in a Sacrificial Rite of a Covenantal Passover –before their eyes ……..
Their soul will tell them it’s really God no further persuasion need be necessary as in today’s new Mass goers coming in from various religions needing continuing apologetics sessions and convincing – It should take only one well done High Mass in the proper context for the conduit to be placed with Saints and Angels between Heaven and oneself
Among the re-utilization and rededication efforts of Sacred objects – Sacred art- and architecture , some on a large capital program scale are overseen by the Keely Society – The Irish and American Keeley Architects continue their legacy in some of the most interesting Catholic Restoration efforts in the world
Of the restoration Churches Highlighted Saint Michael’s in Jersey City’s downtown 9th Street is one of the Keely Sacred Architectural wonders also with Joseph Siebel statues
A lone simple marble statue in the middle of a Brooklyn Catholic cemetery that says, at the foot of this Irish man’s grave, “Prince of American Catholic Architecture” rightly tagged by the Priests of the Diocese is all that stands for him in there until he resurrects through the top soil of that grave on the last day
With the two Churches clearly sitting side by side in the one Church the Lost and Found Section emerges for restoration consideration and strong apostolates return to the vineyards and the sound of the concluding Angelus bells
The Lost and Found Section of Sacred Tradition – What will your grandchildren find in the attic
How about in the Church choir loft what else will they find? A Church Attic ?
Will they find the little bells on washboard ringers that were once mounted to every Sacristy entrance to the Sanctuary that marked the ‘rubrical start and end of any Liturgy’ and what was by Canon Law permitted between the two ringing of the bells–(certainly not personal priestly reflections at the beginning of a Mass)
Will they find the torches for the Acolyte Altar Servers that are meant to line the inside of the Communion Rail at the onset of the Canon of the Mass of the Faithful ?
Will they find the wooden clips to hold the chant sheets to the Choir position’s boards for the various parts of the Mass that are meant to be sung with the prayers of the Mass that are still used in the oldest cloistered monasteries of the world ?
Will they find the engravings into the walls of the choir loft and the stair chambers the symbols of participating in an ancient protected Sacrificial Rite or will they find the post conciliar happy meal banners of episcopalean theology ?
Key Description page(s) within a book on ‘The theology of the Sacred Tradition of the amice, alb, stole, maniple”
Most people don’t realize how many components the Sacred Tradition elements of the Word of God actually have
When the onset of the Catholic Restoration comes into its fullness Sacred Architecture – Sacred Art and Sacred Music restoration will become like the Marines landing on the beach
As authentic Catholic Restoration takes hold most people don’t realize that there will be formed Investigation committees Advisory Societies to Catholic Cemeteries
People that committed suicide or that married the same sex and were buried in Catholic cemeteries under the approval of radicalized liberal Bishops and Chancery officials will have to be dug up one by one …….
Pro-abortion- and pro-homosexual Catholic politicians and the list goes on
They will be respectfully removed – under prayers and supervision of course – possibly even under candle lit vigil and– but removed none the less
The Sacred ground and the Cemetery ceremonial re-blessed each time with hierarchy of incense to the affected adjacent graves standing on Holy ground
An apropos transition subject from that “Incense & prayer offering”is an excellent article for new Rite reform considerations that are underway
“The hierarchy of the Incessation” in the various types of Masses and Office Liturgies (as seen restored at the Sacra Liturgica conferences by our Traditional Catholic Bishops)
An intelligent projection question for us to post to traditional Catholic Bishops should be as to WHEN the post-civil war restoration of the Catholic Church will begin the next and larger roll out Phase ?
“The altar and dogma are the testing place on which one takes measure of salvation that a creature cannot give to himself.”
