It is clearly evident to many within and without the Church that the way Forward Is NOT to resurrect the outdated ideologies of the 1960s utopia vision of Vatican II’s most liberal minority wing and forcibly attempt to make it the new implemented Catholic religion by majority

In our Rosary ending prayers we must not pray for “the intentions of the Holy Father” but our intentions for him to return to the Orthodoxy of Faithful Catholics and abandon his mission to dismantle the teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic Church

The Prophesies Of Fatima Are Upon Us – O Virgin Mary Bring To The Feet Of Our Lord Our Prayerful Petitions To Defend Our Families From This On-Onslaught And With Saint Michael The Archangel Fight With Us To Join The Resistance Together With The Restoration
Although tomorrow is the the Nativity of John The Baptist- a double first class Solemnity – today is the Vigil of same and it is replete with many Catholic traditions requiring wider restoration
The Vespers of the Vigil of the Solemnity is also resident within the new Rite’s Breviary of the Liturgy of the Hours of the Divine Office
It is said that only the “predestined” had solemnities for their births – The true and only Son of God – The Mother Of God and the forerunner of God – Saint John the Baptist whose beheading is also celebrated with much fanfare in his martyrdom
The Blessing of the Bonfires | Instaurare Omnia in Christo –
Following the longest day of the year and before the light upon the earth begins to wane – The light of the power of the Incarnation through the Son of God and the coming of his forerunner John The Baptist begins to wax brighter the light that comes into the world, as it was written, in 1 John 1
6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. 8He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. 9That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. 13Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth
Regardless of whether we can access a traditional vigil Mass or not we then gather around a family or community made fire,,,,bless it with Holy water and have the burning of old and unneeded and broken things…. to Outdoor Vespers – Reading Of Summer Opening Poems –and the chants or reciting by the head of the household the Ut Queant Laxis –
Pius XII, in a further clarification of the standard argument,
‘that when the State, acting by its ministerial power, uses the death penalty, it does not exercise dominion over human life but only recognizes that the criminal, by a kind of moral suicide, has deprived himself of the right to life. In the Pope’s words,
Even when there is question of the execution of a condemned man, the State does not dispose of the individual’s right to life. In this case it is reserved to the public power to deprive the condemned person of the enjoyment of life in expiation of his crime when, by his crime, he has already dispossessed himself of his right to life.’

Aside from the consistency of the licit nature of the Death Penalty in Catholic Social teaching it was supported in the codified writing of the Doctor Saints of the Church, Saint Thomas Aquinas and Saint Augustine – (the latter the new Church’s primary model no less ) along with the Catholic Doctrinal re-stating of Popes: Nicholas the 1st – and Innocent the 3rd and Saint Pope Leo The Great – ( Leo the 1st)
Were they all wrong – ?! Should their writings be burnt ? How will it now jeopardize other Catholic Dogmas for non-Catholics?
Following both a cousin and friend’s questions on the actual teachings of the Catholic Church regarding cremation – I have the following facts to share more widely.
Cremation throughout salvation history was always forbidden by the Catholic Church as a pagan practice and it was codified as prohibited in the 1917 Code of Canon Law -punishable by the denial of a Catholic Funeral to the deceased as well as excommunications for those family members that persisted in the propagation of its practice
#1 It denies the resurrection of the Body –#2 It was a recorded formal albigensian heresy and -#3 It was and continues to be a pressing exception that was repeatedly requested and insisted upon by several generations of ecclesial freemasonry who celebrated the Vatican II changes allowing cremation by “exception” in many documented instances of its anti-Catholic journals –
Today’s secular US culture presses forth illegally to make the exception ” the norm”
Although the new non-binding post-concliar ideologies are in many instances an aberration of traditional Catholic theology and practice, the little known facts are, that much of what is practiced in the new Rite today violates its own rubrics and the laws of the Church.
In Addition To Canon Law On The Body Being Present At Funeral, please see these excerpts from the following citations of the law
*(Only using EWTN as a source when it is an old (1990s document)*
The Canon Law directive also dictates that Liturgical Law is to be followed
The highest ranking Vatican Congregation On The Liturgy is The Congregation of Divine Worship which presses the case for the presence of the Body at Funeral Masses
413 Although cremation is now permitted by the Church, it does not enjoy the same value as burial of the body. The Church clearly prefers and urges that the body of the deceased be present for the funeral rites, since the presence of the human body better expresses the values which the Church affirms in those rites.
414 The Church’s teaching in regard to the human body as well as the Church’s preference for burial of the body should be a regular part of catechesis on all levels and pastors should make particular efforts to preserve this important teaching.
The ‘exception” is ONLY for the liberal Catholic province of the United States – To ‘celebrate’ the Holy Eucharist in the presence of cremated remains during a Funerary Rite, is NOT the norm, and again is granted #1 as an exception for unusual circumstances and #2 only the United States
417 The cremated remains of a body should be treated with the same respect given to the human body from which they come. This includes the use of a worthy vessel to contain the ashes, the manner in which they are carried, the care and attention to appropriate placement and transport, and the final disposition.
The cremated remains should be buried in a grave or entombed in a mausoleum or columbarium.
The practice of scattering cremated remains on the sea, from the air, or on the ground, or keeping cremated remains in the home of a relative or friend of the deceased are not the reverent disposition that the Church requires.
Whenever possible, appropriate means for recording with dignity the memory of the deceased should be adopted, such as a plaque or stone which records the name of the deceased.
Requiem eternam dona ei , Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei . Requiescat ei in pace. Amen.
