The Attack On Marriage And The Family Is Related To The Attack On The Clergy – High Level Prelates Continue To Churn Our Proposals For Women Priests, Married Priests, Holy Communion For Adulterers, Intercommunion For Protestants
Bp. Schneider: Out of Fear, Some Prelates Did Not Sign Kazakh Marriage Statement – OnePeterFive
DOUBLE, FIRST CLASS / RED Baptism alone seals a person as a child of God, bestows an initial share in Christ’s priesthood and enriches the soul with divine life. But Jesus instituted also the Sacrament of Confirmation, by which He gives a further indelible seal and a further share in His priesthood, as well as the special grace to live and worship as a mature, apostolic Christian.
INTROIT IV Esdr. 2:36, 37
Receive with joy the glory that is yours, alleluia! giving thanks to God, alleluia! who has called you to the heavenly kingdom, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! Ps. 77:1. Hearken, My people, to My law; incline your ears to the words of My mouth. V. Glory be . . .
O Lord, let the power of the Holy Spirit be with us, gently cleansing our hearts and guarding us against danger. Through our Lord . . .
LESSON Acts 8:14-17
Now, when the apostles, who were in Jerusalem, had heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John. Who, when they were come, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Ghost. For he was not as yet come upon any of them: but they were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands upon them: and they received the Holy Ghost.
Alleluia, alleluia! V. John 14:26
The Holy Spirit will teach you whatever I have said to you. Alleluia! (Here all Kneel.) V. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Holy Spirit, come and shine On our souls with beams divine Issuing from your radiance bright. Come, O Father of the poor, Ever bounteous of your store, Come, our heart’s unfailing light.
Come, Consoler, kindest, best, Come our bosom’s dearest guest, Sweet refreshment, sweet repose. Rest in labor, coolness sweet, Tempering the burning heat, Truest comfort of our woes.
O divinest light, impart Unto every faithful heart Plenteous streams from love’s bright flood. But for your blest Deity, Nothing pure in man could be; Nothing harmless, nothing good.
Wash away each sinful stain; Gently shed your gracious rain On the dry and fruitless soul. Heal each wound and bend each will, Warm our hearts benumbed and chill, All our wayward steps control.
Unto all your faithful just, Who in you confide and trust, Deign the sevenfold gift to send. Grant us virtue’s blest increase, Grant a death of hope and peace, Grant the joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia!
GOSPEL John 10:1-10
At that time, Jesus said to the Pharisees: “Amen, amen, I say to you: He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold but climbeth up another way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth: and the sheep hear his voice. And he calleth his own sheep by name and leadeth them out. And when he hath let out his own sheep, he goeth before them: and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.”
This proverb Jesus spoke to them. But they understood not what he spoke. Jesus therefore said to them again: “Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers: and the sheep heard them not. I am the door. By me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved: and he shall go in and go out, and shall find pastures. The thief cometh not, but for to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they may have life and may have it more abundantly.”
OFFERTORY ANTIPHON Ps. 77:23-25
The Lord opened the doors of heaven, and rained down manna upon them for food. He gave them the bread of heaven, and man ate the food of angels, alleluia!
SECRET O Lord, may we be cleansed by the sacrifice we offer, and made worthy to receive Your Blessed Sacrament. Through our Lord . . .
COMMUNION ANTIPHON John 15:26; 16:14
The Spirit who proceeds from the Father, alleluia! He will glorify Me, alleluia, alleluia!
POSTCOMMUNION O Lord, may the Holy Spirit heal our souls with this divine Sacrament, for He Himself is the forgiveness of all sins. Through our Lord . . .
The “Neo-Catechumenal Way,” a movement whose name would suggest it is the prefect embodiment of neo-Catholicism. Active in dioceses throughout the world, this Judaized, semi-gnostic, intra-ecclesial sect conducts private, closed-door Saturday night “liturgies” which have been dispensed from all compliance with even the absurdly liberalized liturgical laws of the Novus Ordo. The neo-liturgy of this sect has no Offertory, and the congregation dances the horah around the altar-table before consuming a Host the size and consistency of a personal pan pizza, which tends to crumble and leave fragments all over the floor. The sect’s lay founders, Kiko Arguello and Carmen Hernandez (I kid you not) have concocted a neo-catechism in which the movement’s adherents are trained to varying levels of gnostic initiation into the thinking of Kiko and Carmen. This “catechism” is rife with heterodoxy, including the proposition that the Church went astray after the 8th Century and became obscured by an accretion of unnecessary customs and structures — precisely what the Protestants say — until its essence was freed again by Vatican II.7 The sect is armed with a letter of commendation from the Pope himself — which, sad to say, is quite authentic. (The Pope has repeatedly praised this “ecclesial movement.”)
In today’s Rogation Liturgy And Prayers Normally Dedicated To Protection Of Persons And Property From Calamity But Without Lauding Pride In Possessions – Not Coincidentally Enough Are Also Set Aside For The Pope
O God, who by sin art offended and by penance pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of Thy people making supplication to Thee, and turn away the scourges of Thine anger, which we deserve for our sins
Almighty, everlasting God have mercy upon Thy servant Pope Francis., our Sovereign Pontiff, and direct him according to Thy clemency into the way of everlasting salvation, that by Thy grace he may both desire those things that are pleasing to Thee, and perform them with all his strength.
Put your trust in the Lord and do good, and your land and habitation will be secure.
Take your delight in the Lord, and he will give you what your heart desires.
And Liturgy of the Hours – Prayers of protection of ourselves in reflections against the land and properties
Psalm 64/ 65
You have crowned the year with your kindness. Your footsteps will drip with fruitfulness. The desert pastures will be soaked, the hills will be wrapped in rejoicing.
The fields will be clothed with flocks, the vales overflow with corn. They will cry out, and sing your praise.
1 John 2
The love of the Father cannot be in any man who loves the world,because nothing the world has to offer
– the sensual body,
the lustful eye,
pride in possessions –
could ever come from the Father
but only from the world; and the world, with all it craves for, is coming to an end; but anyone who does the will of God remains for ever.
