My prayers for you, Bishop Noonan. You have lost the faith!

“For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, and will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables” – St Paul the Apostle (Tim 4: 1-8)

I was recently contacted by a brother in arms that lives in the state of Florida. He and two close friends of him are new to Traditionalism. At first they did not agree with me when it came to the crises in the Church and the apostasy coming from our own hierarchy. The more they visited parishes in their diocese, which they fled by the Grace of God, the more they became convinced that there really is a crises in the Church.

Since I will not expose his real name to the public, out of request, we will call him MG since this is a knick name he prefers to go by, standing for his patron Saint, St. Maria Goretti in whom I ask to intercede for us. Now MG and his two friends were once under the Diocese of Orlando headed by His Excellency Bishop Noonan, whom they resist and now only attend  parishes that offer the True Mass, including the Eastern Rites.

When you examine the parishes within the Diocese of Orlando, as I have since I physically been in one in my previous years, you can see that these parishes have, objectively speaking, lost the faith. From Modernist architecture to watered down catechesis, it sticks out like a soar thumb. What has made my stomach drop was the story of what one of MG’s friends, who goes by  JP, has reported to me.

When JP formally attended the New Mass at his old parish, he has made it known to me that Bishop Noonan was the celebrant one Sunday. After Mass JP sobbed uncontrollably and reported to Bishop Noonan about the liturgical abuses that take place in his parish in which only blaspheme Our Lord. Bishop Noonan chastised him with responses such as “You do not have peace in your heart… You shouldn’t care about what others did but only about yourself… just attend another parish.”

With a response like that, can we say that this Bishop cares for souls? In my opinion, the state of his diocese in which is infected by modernism only reflects his pastoral care and the faith that he believes in since he fails to correct and condemn the actions and blasphemies within his own diocese.

Payback for a prankster: Bishop Noonan wears his Mickey miter during the farewell lunch and roast thrown by Pastoral Center employees.

Now that I have introduced everybody to the Bishop, I would now like to give you a glance of one of the many parishes under his pastoral care. Friends, welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes located in Daytona beach. According to their own website their heading reads “Rethink Church … Building Justice, welcoming diversity, extending conditional love, embracing inclusiveness, advocating mercy!”

For all of those that understand Novus Ordo language, it is clear that this is a parish of apostasy and heresy that only rejects dogma. Still not convinced? Lets examine a few images from their very website, shall we?

Here, my friends, is a poster in their parish that reads “Welcome all colors, all sexes, ALL ORIENTATIONS, ALL RELIGIONS, all cultures, all ages, all sizes, all individuals. Love Lives Here” (Emphasis on Orientations and Religions in which is heresy and sacrilege.) If you are asking if they are serious, indeed they are.

Just incase anybody wants to accuse me of calumny, overreacting, and cherry picking pictures from liturgical abuses from the past or simply imagery from Protestant congregations, I challenge you to visit their very website in where I am getting this information and imagery. In fact, many of the images I have displayed above come from their very video. Did I tell you that they have a snack bar in the sanctuary? Talk about dismissing canon law and the fast, eh? I just wonder who is justifying all of this…

Pray for these men, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, and do not have hatred for them, but only their evils. Since today is the feast of Saint Peter Chrysologus (meaning golden speech), let us ask for his intercession since he kept the faith.

The Gift of Piety, The Ancient Rites, and the Charismatic Movement

When studying the Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost, we are given the knowledge that one of the amazing gifts is known as piety. According to the Oxford dictionary, Piety is: “The quality of being religious or reverent.”

This is what we explicitly express in the traditional liturgies of the Catholic Church that were handed down by the apostles and the saints since they do not only bring attention the divine truths of our faith, but it also gives the respect due to our dear Lord, Jesus Christ, since He becomes present in the consecrated elements of Bread and Wine.

This explains why Pope Pius V and the Council of Trent explicitly codified the ancient rites for all time and why new ones cannot be constructed, under the pain of anathema.

“If any one saith, that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by every pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema.”

Again, These ancient rites in themselves are handed down from the apostles when they went and preached the gospel to each and every corner of the earth as Christ commanded. Matthew 28:18 – 20:

And Jesus coming spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.”

For those of you who are not aware of what the ancient rites are, these are the Latin, Armenian, West Syrian, East Syrian, Byzantine, and Alexandrian liturgies that are used by the 23 (now 24) Sui Juris Churches of the Catholic Church. While different and diverse in culture, all of these ancient apostolic rites are equivalent in reverence and holiness and should be treated as such.

When examining all the ancient rites of the Catholic Church, both eastern and western, it explains why all of the liturgies are identical in their essence and reverence. Even though they are diverse cultural wise, they unite the Church because of their nature, excluding all innovation. This is because Christ commanded that this be done and explains why the apostles and early church fathers passed them down, something we know as Apostolic Tradition or Sacred Tradition. As Saint Paul stated: “Now I praise you, brethren, that in all things you are mindful of me: and keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you.” ( 1 Cor 11:2)

When we look at the state of the Church today within her liturgical celebrations, one thing we most likely see are things that contradict tradition. We see many abuses such as communion in the hand, altar girls, extraordinary ministers, contemporary music and bands in church, and charismatic praise and worship music that is identical to a heretical Protestant service; something that is especially seen within the Neo Catechumenical way, life teen, and many other charismatic movements that are all heretical in their nature due to their modernist theology and philosophy which is clearly shown in their worship. 

Even though the Charismatics constantly repeat that we need a “renewal of the Holy Spirit” and that they “Feel the Holy Spirit” in their worship, can we honestly conclude that this is the same Holy Ghost of the Divine Trinity, or a devil that deceives the flock by convincing them that they are receiving gifts from heaven that inspire a feel good atmosphere and reckovation of Catholic identity? While many of these abuses are done out of ignorance and most likely innocence due to the misleading teachings of the conciliar hierarchy, can we honestly say that these new and heretical practices are from the Holy Ghost, God Himself? Absolutely not! To say otherwise would be blasphemy. The Holy Ghost is God, equivalent in Nature to The Father and The Son, and cannot change! “Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words shall not pass.” (Matthew 24:35). And since the Holy Ghost is God and Is Christ: “Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today; and the same forever.” (Hebrews 13:8).

So where am I going with this? This same Holy Ghost, my dear brothers and sisters, is the same Holy Ghost that inspires the Gospels, the infallible statements of the Popes, the Councils and its anathemas. This same Holy Ghost stated the following at the Second Council of Nicea:

“Let everything that conflicts with ecclesiastical tradition and teaching, and that has been innovated and done contrary to the examples outlined by the saints and hereafter at any time be done in such a fashion, be anathema.”

But don’t take my word for it, Pope Pius X repeats this by stating the following:

“But for Catholics nothing will remove the authority of the second Council of Nicea, where it condemns those ‘who dare, after the impious fashion of heretics, to deride the ecclesiastical traditions, to invent novelties of some kind . . . or endeavor by malice or craft to overthrow any one of the legitimate traditions of the Catholic Church’. . . . Wherefore the Roman Pontiffs, Pius IV and Pius IX, ordered the insertion in the profession of faith of the following declaration: ‘I most firmly admit and embrace the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and other observances and constitutions of the Church’.”  – Pope St Pius X, Encyclical Against Modernism (Pascendi)

So my Charismatic friends.. who are you really praying to? Let us continue to pray that our hierarchy and mislead brothers and sisters return to Tradition.

               St. Thomas Aquinas

“It is absurd, and a detestable shame, that we should suffer those traditions to be changed which we have received from the fathers of old.” – The Decretals (Dist. xii, 5) Cited by St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa Theologica, II, I, Q. 97, art. 2.

Pope Gregory XVI on the destruction of the liturgy

  
We often hear from our beloved clerics that the statistics in Mass attendance are decreasing and the faith of many of those who identify as Catholic has been lost. How often do you see what I identify as “holiday catholics”; that being Catholics that only attend Mass on specific feast days and holidays out of routine but do not actually care about the faith nor think about it? 

We often hear about this “new evangelization” from the hierarchy. The question is this; what progress have we made from this “new evangelization”? Sadly, many clerics would interpret a “new evangelization” as a way of converting those outside the church and even inside by using watered down theology and liturgy in order to be accepted and “pastoral”. What are the results of this?

 The lukewarmness of the faith since our beloved prelates have been mislead with a plague from Satan that only deceives souls, something we need to take to prayer so our beloved clerics may notice their errors, strive for holiness, and conquor over Satan’s attacks and all of Hell itself. 

What better prayer is there than the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? What liturgies are better than those accepted by the Council of Trent for all time; that being the Latin Rites of the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern rites, in which explicitly express Catholic orthodoxy? As the angelic doctor of the Church Saint Thomas Aquinas has repeated: “Lex Oriendi, Lex Credendi”. The way we pray is how we will believe; and boy wasn’t he right? 

Let’s be honest here; when the ways of the world are initiated in the liturgy in order to “connect with the people” and to “get with the times” we only see the negative results that the hierarchy complains about. My only question is this; what did you expect? If we believe in the false doctrines of the world and teach it from the pulpits or dismiss them and justify them rather than teaching Catholic truth; the faithful will obviously accept the doctrines of the world as okay and even infallible in some cases. If we pray like the world by bringing in a folk band while Father Gregory dances infront of the Altar and Sister Nancy hands out communion with her fellow extraordinary ministers in jeans and t shirts; the whole essence of the Sacririce of Calvery will be lost and only decrease the faith of the flock since dogma is hardly practiced nor taught anymore. 

Solution? Bring back the Latin Mass. Bring back Catholic orthodoxy and identity. Remove innovation.

Cardinal Sarah upon Ad Orientem

  
A brother in Christ has pointed out a article to me in which I found to be quite interesting. The quote that stood out to me was the one found within this very image upon Ad Orientem. As much as I am not a fan of Vatican 2 and conclude that it’s only a pastoral council (which Paul VI repeated himself), none the less this faithful Cardinal has repeated something that is nothing but pure truth. While he stated some other things such as suggesting we must listen to the council for traditional Catholicism (he is obviously mislead) he also states the following in which we see to be the case within the Novus Ordo Mass.

“The contemporary Western way of thinking, shaped by technology and dazzled by the media, has wished to turn the liturgy into a lucrative production. In this spirit, many have tried to make the celebrations festive. Prompted by pastoral motives, liturgical ministers sometimes stage celebrations into which elements of worldly entertainment are introduced. Have we not witnessed a proliferation of testimonials, acts, and applause? It is imagined that this will foster the participation of the faithful, when in fact it reduces the liturgy to a human plaything.”
To all of the Novus Ordo priests viewing this; if you won’t take the criticism from me, take it from a cardinal instead.

Oh now isn’t that cute, Father? 

  
This is going to lead to loads of hate mail from the Neo cons and other life queen, neocat, and youcat supports; but oh well. If you call this “reverence” then it just proves how deceived you are. Guess who else was laughing and dancing at Calvery? The Romans who mocked Christ as King.

The Novus Ordo, Americanism, and The Council of Trent

IMG_9625-1

Before I am labeled as a “Schismatic, Pharisee, a know it all, a sedevacantist etc.” as I was from the Liberals within the Catholic blogosphere and other social media websites I would like to ask you to consider the following questions:

  1. Is the Novus Ordo Mass a rite of the Catholic Church, yes or no?
  2. Did the Pope have the authority to compile a new rite?
  3. Is the Novus Ordo Mass in continuation with Apostolic Tradition?

After reading these three questions in which I have appointed above one may argue ‘yes’ for all three, and that’s fine. However, I would like to ask the fellow reader to consider the following points that I will make by referencing the statements of the Popes (be it infallible or subjective), the Saints, and the canons of the Councils of the Church. So let’s get started!

The Second Vatican Council in the document ‘Sacrosanctum Concilium’ paragraph 1 states the following:“This sacred Council has several aims in view: it desires to impart an ever increasing vigor to the Christian life of the faithful; to adapt more suitably to the needs of our own times those institutions which are subject to change; to foster whatever can promote union among all who believe in Christ; to strengthen whatever can help to call the whole of mankind into the household of the Church. The Council therefore sees particularly cogent reasons for undertaking the reform and promotion of the liturgy.”As we examine this specific canon of Sacrosanctum Concilium we must determine if this is continuing with apostolic Tradition or if it is giving flexibility to the evolution of worship and indifferentism. We sadly would have to assume the latter since not only does this statement state “to adapt more suitably to the needs of our own times” but it continues with “to foster whatever can promote union among all who believe in Christ” following with “The council therefore sees particularly cogent reasons for undertaking the reform and promotion of the liturgy”.

The issue with this is that not only does this insist we change the liturgy in order to get with the times, it insists that we change it in order to “promote union among all who believe in Christ” which is heretical since:

  1. The Catholic Church is the sacrament of unity since She alone is the Kingdom of God upon Earth as a result of being Christ’s Holy Bride.
  2. This insists that we must change the liturgy in order to please heretics, such as the Protestants, in order that they may come into the Church as a result of having a liturgy that suits them;therefore the protestant elements of the Novus Ordo Mass which is identical to a Lutheran Liturgy.

If we as Catholics uphold such an absurd position in which insists that we must change the Church’s liturgy in order to get with the times and to please the Protestants to “promote unity”, then we must argue against the statements of the Pre Vatican 2 Magisterium.

Pope Pius X, Pescendi Dominici Gregis, Excerpt 26:

“To conclude this whole question of faith and its various branches, we have still to consider, Venerable Brethren, what the Modernists have to say about the development of the one and the other. First of all they lay down the general principle that in a living religion everything is subject to change, and must in fact be changed. In this way they pass to what is practically their principal doctrine, namely, evolution. To the laws of evolution everything is subject under penalty of death — dogma, Church, worship (emphasis added), the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself”.

Pope Leo XIII addressing the Americanism heresy his encyclical Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae:

“The underlying principle of these new opinions is that, in order to more easily attract those who differ from her, the Church should shape her teachings more in accord with the spirit of the age and relax some of her ancient severity and make some concessions to new opinions”.

One may argue that the above quote of Pope Leo XIII is not upon the Liturgy itself, however, is not the liturgy the center of our Catholic faith since it is because of the liturgy (when celebrated validly and in accordance with the rubrics approved by the Church) that the Eucharist becomes the Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, therefore touching upon the dogma of transubstantiation? Does not initiating protestant worship within the liturgy cause innovations and challenges to the real presence, the prayers for the souls in purgatory etc., therefore the removal of prayers within the Novus Ordo rite itself? Is not Saint Thomas Aquinas’ “Lex Oriendi, Lex Credendi” still in effect?

Pope Leo XIII on Christian unity:

“But the true church is one, as by unity of doctrine, so by unity of government, and she is catholic also. Since God has placed the center and foundation of unity in the chair of Blessed Peter, she is rightly called the Roman Church, for “where Peter is, there is the church.” Wherefore, if anybody wishes to be considered a real Catholic, he ought to be able to say from his heart the selfsame words which Jerome addressed to Pope Damasus: “I, acknowledging no other leader than Christ, am bound in fellowship with Your Holiness; that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that the church was built upon him as its rock, and that whosoever gathereth not with you, scattereth.”

Since Protestants do not unite with the Church due to heretical doctrines that were invented by heretical founders, how can we promote such a unity with all “Believers in Christ” if they oppose Dogma? How is it that we can now construct new rites when the Sacred Infallible Councils opposed such an idea?

The Council of Trent in Session 7 Canon 13 states: “If any one saith, that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by every pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema”.

Pope Pius V, the Pope in charge of the council of Trent after the death of Pope Paul III, repeated this in his encyclical Quo Primum:

“We specifically command each and every patriarch, administrator, and all other persons or whatever ecclesiastical dignity they may be, be they even cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, or possessed of any other rank or pre-eminence, and We order them in virtue of holy obedience to chant or to read the Mass according to the rite and manner and norm herewith laid down by Us and, hereafter, to discontinue and completely discard all other rubrics and rites of other missals, however ancient, which they have customarily followed; and they must not in celebrating Mass presume to introduce any ceremonies or recite any prayers other than those contained in this Missal.

Furthermore, by these presents [this law], in virtue of Our Apostolic authority, We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us. We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its full force notwithstanding the previous constitutions and decrees of the Holy See, as well as any general or special constitutions or edicts of provincial or synodal councils, and notwithstanding the practice and custom of the aforesaid churches, established by long and immemorial prescription – except, however, if more than two hundred years’ standing”. (Note – The Novus Ordo is 46 years old since its 2015)

Pope Paul VI was very familiar with this canon and infallible encyclical. This is why on April 3,1969 he stated  “The Missale Romanum was promulgated in 1570 by our predecessor St. Pius V, in execution of the decree of the Council of Trent”: therefore the exact reason why he did not codify it for the Church since he knew that he would put himself in ipso facto schism.

Since this is binding for all time upon pastors, including the Pope since he is a pastor of the Church as the Vicar of Christ, Primate of Italy, the Patriarch of the West, and visible head of the Church, how can we conclude that the novus ordo mass is from the Church herself when it was constructed by 6 protestant ministers and the proven to be freemason, Archbishop Bugini, who repeated that it was his intention to remove the prayers of the Church in order to please the protestants? He insisted that “We must strip from our Catholic prayers and from the Catholic liturgy everything which can be the shadow of a stumbling block for our separated brethren that is for the Prostestants.” – Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, main author of the New Mass, L’Osservatore Romano, March 19, 1969

Jimmy Papist Moment –‘But Didn’t Pope Paul VI suggest that Latin be used?

IMG_9150

I think you are over reacting!’Actually, Jimmy, he said the contrary to the general audience on November 26, 1969 when he said “It is here that the greatest newness is going to be noticed, the newness of language. No longer Latin, but the spoken language will be the principal language of the Mass. The introduction of the vernacular will certainly be a great sacrifice for those who know the beauty, the power and the expressive sacrality of Latin”
