Graveyard Mass

Ahh, summer. Do you remember my post about the Graveyard Mass with Fr. Liberal? Well, Graveyard Mass was today, and now, with the new Parish Priest, everything went lovely!
The Differences.....
  1. Last yeart, Fr. Liberal did not wear a Chasuble, as "it was too windy; well, this year was even windier, and our lovely new Priest wore a beautiful white-and-gold chasuble. Note, it was windier than last year.
  2. The homily was fire and brimstone. Father preaches about the sins of not attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and of not going to confession, he stressed the importance of the Eucharist! That it was not just "a piece of holy bread and wine". He preached that people were putting their souls in danger for not going to Mass, by not going to Confession they were putting their mortal fate in danger. Good for him! Bravo! And the best part is, is that he delivers his BEST homilies when there is a big crowd. Mass attendance has increased since he became vicar. The church looks more orthodox that what once was.
  3. The hymns were not by the St. Lousic (not) Jesuits! They were the Prayer of St. Francis (not contemporary, I can tell you that ), Hail Queen of Heaven the Ocean Star, and sadly, I can not remember the other.
  4. Before Mass he asked everyone to keep a prayerful Silence, as it was the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and NOT a cocktail party.
God Bless his heart. I was so impressed, as were the older folks. Everybody went back to their little salt-box homes thinking of God's love for us, and how we must be careful, and stray away from sin-and from the Devil, the importance of the Mass, and of the Holy Eucharist. Before Mass, the Rosary was prayed.

I am impressed.

No, I am not superstitious!

Nor am I crazy. Here is a not-so-common question: Can things be cursed? The answer is Yes.
You see, people today are so caught up in thinking that they can believe what they want to, and God is ok with that. WRONG. God is NOT okay with that. There is one Church, and one Church only! There is a Heaven and there is a Hell. God is real, real, real. Buddha is NOT real, though he lived once upon a time. Krishna is not real; the Shinto "Gods" are not real; there is no other god except for God himself, who is our Father. God who is the Son, and Sog who is the Holy Spirit. ONE GOD, in THREE DIVINE PERSONS. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. But, people think they can object to that, people think they can object to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. To quote Kat, from The Crescat "There are two religions. Catholic and Pagan".

Now to get to my point. Items can be cursed.
Genesis 3:17 Yet truly, to Adam, he said: “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, from which I instructed you that you should not eat, cursed is the land that you work. In hardship shall you eat from it, all the days of your life. Thorns and thistles shall it produce for you, and you shall eat the plants of the earth. By the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, until you return to the earth from which you were taken. For dust you are, and unto dust you shall return."

The ground is cursed, because of what our first parents listened to the Serpant. Though, people these days, so-called "modern day people, who are accepting and understanding" believe that EVERYONE goes to heaven and will live on a big happy rainbow in the sky, and we will play with God ForEver. This is so wrong, that it makes Bill Maher funny.

Items can be cursed, as well as blessed. Remove those items which are cursed, burn them, dispose of them in some kind of manner. People go the Heaven and people go to Hell. There are good people and bad people.

My dear friends

My dear readers, please excuse my absence from blogging. With the summer months, comes a flock of people who want you to do everthing for them. Pluse, the temperatures are too high to stay inside on the computer, when you could be out side running around, fishing, walking everywhere, discover new places. Yes, I do have an adventerous side. But, most importantly, the Church. I volunteer my time sometimes to clean up outside the church, and with the innumerous amount of tourists, asking information. Helping the Parish. Going to the Lords sacrifice. Which I proudfully, and joyfully pray. But, my schedule has been sky-rocketed. Plus, my dear relative died a few short says ago. A woman, by the name of Margaret. I would ask of you to pray for the repose of her sould, my dear friends. Please forigve me, and within a few days, once I get the mobile-blogging app figured out and what not, I will be back on a normal blogging schedule. I ask ye again, dear readers. Forgive me, for I don't know why people can't do things for themselves in the summer, some people are just really lazy. But, I will not complain, Whenever someone wants help, why not help them. God Bless.

BBS, or sorry, the BBC

Now, I think we should all try to get the BBC (a once-upon-a-tyne) trusted news source, to BBS (British Bull S---[you say it for me, I don't like swearing])Yes, my dear friends. The BBC has betrayed us, again. The I lament for the days when you would turn on BBC and see the Mass from Westminster Cathedral, or a documentary on our dear Holy Father.

Now, look at this twist-of-faith.

The abuse is in the Lutheran church, but yet--they blames it on us.



Maria Jepsen stepped down saying her credibility had been contested.
She denies having known before May this year about a priest in the town of Ahrensburg who reportedly sexually abused boys and girls in the 1980s.
Several cases in Germany form part of sex abuse scandals that have hit the Roman Catholic Church recently.

Maria Jepsen was elected bishop in 1992, becoming the first woman worldwide to hold the post.
"My credibility has been put in question," she said.

"Consequently, I feel that I am no longer able to spread the good word, as I vowed to do at my ordination.
"I expect that the... cases in Ahrensburg and elsewhere will be swiftly investigated and that the truth will come to light."

Maria Jepsen is the third bishop to resign in Germany in recent months.

Roman Catholic Bishop Walter Mixa resigned in April after claims he hit children.
And the former head of the Protestant Church in Germany, Margot Kaesmann, resigned after she was caught by police drunk driving.

Speedy solution
In recent months, allegations of abuse levelled against Catholic priests have surfaced in many countries.

There have also been accusations that Church authorities in Europe and North and South America failed to deal with cases openly or properly.
Pope Benedict XVI himself has been accused of being part of a culture of secrecy, and of not taking strong enough steps against abusers when he had that responsibility as a cardinal in Rome.

However, his supporters say he has been the most pro-active pope yet in confronting abuse.
The Pope pledged in April to "bring to justice" Church officials responsible for abuse.

On Thursday, the Vatican issued new instructions to speed up the handling of the "most urgent" cases of sex abuse by priests, after a series of abuse scandals.
Priests who sexually abuse a mentally ill adult will now be treated in the same way as those who abuse minors.

America Needs Fatima...

and so does Canada. (Hey, that rhymes!). Today in the post, I got a wonderful surprise from America Needs Fatima, an organization in full communion with the church (unlike the Fatima Center). I recieved a wonderful book called "The Book of Confidence" and a huge Prayer card with a beautiful picture of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima on it, which I will frame and hang to the wall. The Fatima Center is also the source of the protest petition, which I urge you to sign, that is protesting the showing of "The Greatest Story Ever Told". They got "Corpus Christi" cancelled due to their wonderful protest against the false truth that is shown in that play. Hopefully, please God, they will get "The Greaest Story Ever Told", that blasphemous play, cancelled too.

But wait! There's more!

I stumbled across another website today (I say stumbled, because it was completely accidental). Lets disect it! It was the website of "Most Holy Redeemer 'Catholic' Church".
On the front page it says

"MHR Parish, located at 100 Diamond Street (at 18th Street) has existed as the {non}Roman Catholic religious center of the Castro neighborhood in San Francisco since 1900. Located just 2 blocks from the heart of the historic Castro district, the parish reflects {"}the diversity{"} and excitement {WOW. Where have I heard that before?} of the surrounding neighborhood. MHR is an inclusive {hear that? inclusive! I say the people at Progressive Catholic church sure are jealous now! The MHR is more inclusive than them!} Catholic community -- embracing all people of good faith {go on}-- Catholics as well as those people interested in learning about the Catholic experience {I say that that "experience" is about as "Catholic" as the Canadian government}-- regardless of their background, gender, race, social status, gender identity or sexual orientation. {Oh, c'mon! what an old, over-used clichè!}"

Let us continue to the "About Us" section (and waste of time).

MHR is an inclusive Catholic community {NOTE: not a church, a community, so called "inclusive"}-- embracing all people of good faith -- Catholics as well as those people interested in learning about the Catholic experience -- regardless of their background, gender, gender identity, race, social status or sexual orientation.{blah blah, blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah.}



Read: Gays and Grays: The Story of the Gay Community at Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish. {There should NOT be one of those despicable "communities" in ANY church} Fr. Donal Godfrey's {So it's writtend by the loopy-hippy Priest}book Gays and Grays tells the story of the life of Most Holy Redeemer parish. The book is the popularized version of Fr. Godfrey's dissertation {must be a typo, the proper word is .dissent.}, and his writing is superb. It starts with the rise - and almost fall of the parish - in a historical exposé. {eks-poh-zay}



Most Holy Redeemer Parish is a Christian Community in the Roman Catholic tradition{"in the Roman Catholic tradition". They say "tradition", not in the "Roman Catholic Church", so...}. The parish draws people from isolation to community, from searching to awakening,
{I've heard ENOUGH} from indifference to concern, from selfishness to meaningful service, from fear in the midst of adversity to faith and hope in God.

The community of Most Holy Redeemer shares God's compassionate love with all people. The parish offers a spiritual home to all: senior citizens and youth; single people and families; the healthy and the sick, particularly persons with HIV disease; regardless of their background, gender, race, social status, gender identity or sexual orientation.{They can't say this enough, can they. They must keep stressy their idiocy}


Now, as you can see, they obviously not Catholic. They are fake, CINO. (Catholic in Name Only)


God Bless.

I am sorry for my absense. Wow, I can't believe that it is so hard to find TIME!
A partial indulgence is attached to the versicle and response.

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedicto.

R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. {Psalm 40:3}

Pray the Pater Noster, and an Ave Maria

Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum Benedicto, quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Disectiong the "Progressive Catholic Church"

Today I was browsing throught the magical world of the internet, and came across the webpage of a church called "St. Joan of Arc Progressive Catholic Church". I said to myself, oh Great! Now they're admitting to it.
Well, to the webpage I go. Then, do I read,

"The Progressive Catholic Church is an independent catholic denomination that is not in affiliated with, or in communion with, the Roman Catholic Church or any other denomination or religious community.".

So now, they have formed their own denomination, not just schismatic communities, like Spiritus Christi in Rochester, and the Spirit of Vatican II Church in Knoxville. The heretical Progressive Catholic Church is not even affiliated with the Union of Utrecht, another supposed "Catholic" schismatic group of churches.

I go to their "What we Believe" page, and find out some very, er, interesting stuff.

The following is taken from that very page, comments mine.


Inclusive • {I was expecting that}The Progessive Catholic Church seeks to reach out to those who feel alienated. {This could be, who?}We believe that who a person is, and how a person lives, does not separate him or her from the love and compassion of God.{So, someone could be an unrepentant serial killer, but that doesn't seperate them from God? They could be full of Mortal Sin (unrepentantly) and not be seperated from God?}


Proactive • Believing that the Holy Spirit continues to guide the Church through the 'Sense of the Faithful'{Which is..}, our Catholic Community{Community} sees itself as a process as well as an institution which hopes to listen to, rather than speak for, {And worship those people} the people of God as they seek ways, prompted by the {Holy} Spirit, to remake{Ah, this is the same old excuse} the Church into a credible community of faith for the world.

Compassionate • The difficult decisions in our lives are always harder to make alone. At such times, the compassionate support of a community of faith can be crucial. Morality ought to be the response to the life of the Holy Spirit within each human person, and a loving way of life for the whole community.

We believe wholeheartedly that an informed conscience, {But not all "conscience" decisions are morally acceptable, of course, they don't care!} molded on Gospel values of truth, justice, compassion and love, {Incorrect, and a false love, cupidity is what I'll and others shall call it} should be the ultimate motivating force in a person's life.

We teach these values with the individual person in mind and with respect for individual human freedom and dignity. We trust that, if we are people fully living in the spirit of truth, we will be able to decide what is just and right conduct, both in our own lives and within society. {This wreaks of Pro-Choice nonsense.)

In Short ... We believe that no person should be denied the ability to worship Jesus Christ in an open and affirming worship community. These beliefs hold forth for both members and clergy. Our family is open to every race, gender, and sexual orientation. {AHA! You first try to confuse us with some crap, then you come right out and say it!)

We celebrate a weekly open communion for all baptized Christians regardless of denomination. {Don't worry, it is invalid and illiciit}

Atleast I found several mentions of "tradition", though, I highly doubt anything they do is "traditional".

Happy Canada Day!

HAPPY CANADA DAY, TO YOU AND TO ALL!
