Satanists Are In Need of Prayers…And A Beating

A happy and blessed Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you. Normally, today would be a Holy Day of Obligation, but because today is Monday and everyone just went to Mass yesterday, the Bishops have decided that it would be too difficult to go to Mass, *gasp* two days in a row! But that’s a discussion for another post. Today, I want to talk about the disgusting and vileness of Satanists and one way we should handle them.

Satanists in Oklahoma will be blaspheming Our Lady with one of their disgusting “ceremonies” today. I won’t go into the detail of what these Satanists are going to do, as I don’t want to give them the satisfaction that innocent minds and souls will be exposed to their putrid displays of hatred for the Truth. The amazing thing about this is that from what I can tell, there have been no statements made by bishops within this country calling for prayer and/or fasting against this demonic attack against our faith and our Blessed Mother. But, don’t worry, if Donald Trump says something mean they will call a press conference immediately to let you know how upset they are.

Satanists are possibly the saddest and most pathetic souls to walk this vale of tears. In some regard, Satanists are stronger believers than many Catholics. Most Catholics believe in the Real Presence of the Eucharist; Satanists don’t believe it. They know it to be true.

Satanists blasphemy Our Lord by desecrating the Eucharist during their black masses. They know the Eucharist to be the Physical Manifestation of Jesus Christ, and instead of bowing down to worship Our Lord, they stamp upon Him, they trample Him, and they do many vile things to Him.

They do the same thing to Our Blessed Mother, except they are even viler.

We should pray for these poor souls, as that is the charitable and Catholic response. But in all seriousness. Why are we not beating the living Hell out of these people?

After all, St. John Chrysostom said that one should sanctify their hand by striking the mouth of a blasphemer who refuses to recant their error. Not only do these perverts refuse to renounce their erroneous and diabolical beliefs, but they get off on them…literally.

Why is it that Catholics are so timid to do anything but pray? If a rapist was to announce publicly that he was going to rape someone at a specific location, would we just sit outside that location and pray for his conversion, all along allowing the victim to be raped? Here we are, our victim being Our Blessed Mother and the best that we see is that there will be a prayer rally outside.

At one time, Catholics would have rushed in to interrupt these vile displays and would even bring priests along to sprinkle exorcised water. But today, we see that only prayers will be offered.

Now, I know what you are thinking. “Wow! This is some super violent behavior, so not Catholic!” Let us recall the time that Jesus went into the temple and made a whip of cords and literally beat the snot out of those who were desecrating what was Holy, that being the House of the Lord.

If Jesus went so far as to beat these people for exchanging money and selling items within the temple, how much more deserving of a beating of someone who is desecrating the Holy of Holies of Our Blessed Lord or His Mother? Is Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior that much more Holy than a Temple? Is His Mother, who was conceived without sin, pure throughout her entire life, died a beautiful and holy death and then assumed into Heaven, both body and soul, not more Holy than a Temple?

It is not violent to ask these questions as desecration of the Holy should make your blood boil. It is not “non-Catholic” to ask these questions either, despite the amount of effort put forth to make Catholic men act, behave, and think like women. And that isn’t a slight at women, as men and women have differing duties in the realm of the physical and the spiritual.

But I know there are some of you out there who are thinking that I am not being a “good Catholic” because I write this article. And that’s completely fine, you’re entitled to your opinion, even if it’s wrong. And while you sit there thinking how much better you are because you don’t think this way, I’ll say a couple of things. First, you’re a coward because you do not love Our Lord enough to defend Him with your life. Second, your pride is showing.

For those who can’t be there, continue to offer up prayers, as they are powerful. For those who are actually in the area, do something. Deus Vult!

Welcome Home to Jesus

With Christmas only nine days away, I thought I’d share something with you that I received in the mail. The local Lutheran church sent out postcards to probably everyone in the area inviting them to Christmas services. While the gesture appears to be kind, one thing caught my eye. “Welcome Home to Jesus” was their opening line to invite you. Upon seeing this, I immediately thought “huh, I didn’t know they had Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.”

Jesus Christ Eucharist

Obviously, they don’t, which is why I found the choice of words ironic. The only Church that can honestly claim that they have Jesus Christ, physically present, is the Catholic Church (no, I’m not discussing the Churches who have apostolic authority but are in schism). It is also worth noting that only those who are members of the Catholic Church will be making the trip to Heaven, extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

The invitation continues: “Join us this Christmas and each Sunday as we worship our Savior and live our faith as a welcoming community.” The fun part about “welcoming community” with this church is that they are very gay-friendly, with 80% of their congregation voting for gay marriage.

While we have but only a handful of days before we await the joyful birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I want to remind and urge you to get to confession. Christ came to make all things new, and through the Sacrament of Confession, we can give our sins to Jesus, so that we may return to the state of grace. To go to Heaven, we must be in the state of grace. Mortal sin kills the soul and severs our ties with God. Confessing our mortal sins with a contrite heart will heal this tie and allow us to have a chance at eternal life.

We should also spend this time preparing for the Lord by assisting the poor as we can, pray for the dead, help the sick, and performing the other spiritual and corporal works of mercy. I would also ask that you pray for the Pope and all of the clergy, as it is clear we are dealing with a modernist infestation at all levels.

The Synod Is Over and All I Got Was This Lousy Shirt

The Synod on the Family is over. If you recall from my post three weeks ago in which I outlined the three possibilities that I foresaw the Synod  coming to, I was somewhat right:

I see that Option Two is much more likely to happen, simply because those who want to administer Holy Communion to adulterers and actively homosexual, will be able to through a liberal reading of the documents. Meanwhile, those who will actively refuse this reading will accuse the Synod of intentionally allowing this evil to occur. Thus what we will see is those who adhere to the “traditional view” (read: Catholic) will be accused of going the way of the SSPX and causing schism, when the reality simply is that Rome has condoned the practice by not condemning it, all for appearing to be “pastoral”.

Pope Francis leads the Synod of Bishops on the family at Vatican

The final report from the Synod does not come out and say that adulterers can receive Holy Communion. On the other hand, the report also doesn’t come out and condemn it either. From paragraphs 84-86 of the document as translated by Rorate Caeli:

84. The baptized who are divorced and civilly remarried are to be more integrated in the Christian communities in the various possible ways, avoiding every occasion of scandal.
The logic of integration is the key to their pastoral accompaniment, so that they be aware not only that they belong to the Body of Christ, that is the Church, but that they may have a joyful and fruitful experience. They are baptized, they are brothers and sisters, the Holy Spirit pours gifts and charisms in them for the good of all. Their participation can be expressed in various ecclesial services: it is therefore necessary to discern which of the different forms of exclusion currently practiced in a liturgical, educational, pastoral, and institutional role that can be overcome. They should not only not feel excommunicated, but they should live and mature as living members of the Church, feeling her as a mother that welcomes them always, takes care of them affectionately, and encourages them on the path of life and Gospel. This integration is necessary for the Christian care and education of their children, who must be considered what is most important. For the Christian community, taking care of these persons is not a weakening of their own faith and testimony regarding matrimonial indissolubility: rather, the Church expresses precisely in this care her charity.

85. Saint John Paul II offered an all-encompassing criterion, that remains the basis for valuation of these situations: “Pastors must know that, for the sake of truth, they are obliged to exercise careful discernment of situations. There is in fact a difference between those who have sincerely tried to save their first marriage and have been unjustly abandoned, and those who through their own grave fault have destroyed a canonically valid marriage. Finally, there are those who have entered into a second union for the sake of the children’s upbringing, and who are sometimes subjectively certain in conscience that their previous and irreparably destroyed marriage had never been valid.” (FC, 84) It is therefore a duty of the priests to accompany the interested parties on the path of discernment according to the teaching of the Church and the orientations of the Bishop. In this process, it will be useful to make an examination of conscience, by way of moments of reflection and repentance. Remarried divorcees should ask themselves how they behaved themselves when their conjugal union entered in crisis; if there were attempts at reconciliation; what is the situation of the abandoned partner ["partner" in the original Italian]; what consequences the new relationship has on the rest of the family and in the community of the faithful; what example does it offer to young people who are to prepare themselves to matrimony. A sincere reflection may reinforce trust in the mercy of God that is not denied to anyone.

Additionally, it cannot be denied that in some circumstances, “the imputability and the responsibility for an action can be diminished or annulled (CIC, 1735) due to various conditioners. Consequently, the judgment on an objective situation should lead to the judgment on a ‘subjective imputability’” (Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Declaration of June 24, 2000, 2a). In determined circumstances, the persons find great difficulty with acting in a different way. Therefore, while holding up a general rule, it is necessary to recognize that the responsibility regarding specific actions or decisions is not the same in every case. Pastoral discernment, while taking into account the rightly formed conscience of persons, should take these situations into account. Also the consequences of the accomplished acts are not necessarily the same in every case.

86. The path of accompaniment and discernment orients these faithful to becoming conscious of their situation before God. The conversation with the priest, in internal forum, concurs to the formation of a correct judgment on what prevents the possibility of fuller participation in the life of the Church and on the steps that may favor it and make it grow. Considering that in the same law there is no graduality (cf. FC, 34), this discernment must never disregard the demands of truth and charity of the Gospel proposed by the Church. In order for this to happen, the necessary conditions of humility, reserve, love for the Church and to her teaching, in the sincere search for the will of God and for the desire to reach a more perfect answer to the latter, are to be guaranteed.

There are a few interesting things to note of these three paragraphs. Each paragraph in this document required a 2/3 majority vote in order for it to be considered in the final text of the document. This means that a total number of 177 yes votes were needed. On paragraph 84, 85, and 86, the vote tallies came up as 187, 178, and 190 respectively. These three paragraphs received the least amount of yes votes in the entire document. Even more interesting is paragraph 85, which is a direct quotation from Pope St. John Paul II’s Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris Consortio, conveniently leaves out this key paragraph:

Similarly, the respect due to the sacrament of Matrimony, to the couples themselves and their families, and also to the community of the faithful, forbids any pastor, for whatever reason or pretext even of a pastoral nature, to perform ceremonies of any kind for divorced people who remarry. Such ceremonies would give the impression of the celebration of a new sacramentally valid marriage, and would thus lead people into error concerning the indissolubility of a validly contracted marriage.

Because this document does not explicitly condemn the act of administering Holy Communion to adulterers, it easily allows for those who read this document with a non-Catholic lens to misuse and abuse the document. In short, the document is written with ambiguity in order that whoever reads it can obtain the interpretation that they want to use. Church documents require clarity when written. If you look at the pre-conciliar documents of the Church, you see that they are written in such a way that no matter what “lens” you read them through, you always arrive at a traditional and Catholic interpretation. Any other interpretation is clearly taken out of context.

This clarity follows from the example of Jesus in the Scriptures. In the entire Bread of Life Discourse in the 6th chapter of John’s Gospel, Jesus says six times that unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man, you do not have life within you. It is clear as day that Our Lord was not speaking of the Eucharist as merely a symbol, but rather, what it actually is. His Flesh and Blood.

But what Jesus has to say in the Gospels does not seem to be taken seriously by Pope Francis. In fact, Pope Francis had some very heavy words to those who uphold the law of Christ and the Church:

It was about trying to open up broader horizons, rising above conspiracy theories and blinkered viewpoints, so as to defend and spread the freedom of the children of God, and to transmit the beauty of Christian Newness, at times encrusted in a language which is archaic or simply incomprehensible.

Compare this with what Pope Pius XII said:

Some assert that the mysteries of faith are never expressed by truly adequate concepts but only by ever changeable notions.

Pope Francis glare

Even worse:

It was also about laying closed hearts, which bare the closed hearts which frequently hide even behind the Church’s teachings or good intentions, in order to sit in the chair of Moses and judge, sometimes with superiority and superficiality, difficult cases and wounded families.

Is it not odd that Pope Francis, the Pope famous for the words “who am I to judge?” when it comes to homosexuals, is judging the hearts of those that uphold the teachings as ones who want to lord the rules of Christ and His Church in order to judge? Even more ironic, is that Jesus said specifically in the Gospel when it comes to divorce:

And there came to him the Pharisees tempting him, and saying: Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? Who answering, said to them: Have ye not read, that he who made man from the beginning, Made them male and female? And he said: For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. They say to him: Why then did Moses command to give a bill of divorce, and to put away? He saith to them: Because Moses by reason of the hardness of your heart permitted you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that shall marry her that is put away, committeth adultery. His disciples say unto him: If the case of a man with his wife be so, it is not expedient to marry. Who said to them: All men take not this word, but they to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs, who were born so from their mother’ s womb: and there are eunuchs, who were made so by men: and there are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven. He that can take, let him take it. Matthew 19:3-12

Jesus Christ makes it crystal clear with complete clarity that divorce is forbidden. There is no such thing as divorce, it is a lie. Yet, Pope Francis would make it sound as though those who adhere to the teachings of Christ are sitting in the throne of Moses (who as you just read allowed divorce) in order to cast judgment. Those who adhere to these “archaic rules” are not casting stones at those who sin, but rather, protecting the souls of those who are in a state of mortal sin from damaging their soul further by making sacrilegious communions.

St. Paul explains in his letter to the Corinthians:

Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 11:27-29

Allowing the divorced, remarried, and actively homosexual to receive Holy Communion without amending their lives and repenting will not bring mercy to the sinner, but rather, far more judgment that will only damn the poor soul to an eternity in Hell. But this isn’t my own opinion or my own teaching, but Our Lord’s teaching and the Holy Catholic Church’s. Real mercy would get the sinner away from that which causes their soul harm, not encourage them to live their life in that sin. But tell that to the Pope; after all, we’re in the “new Catholicism” and this is the “Church of Mercy”.

Modernists and the Synod: Attacking Tradition and Ecclesiastical Authority

This post is part five in a series of posts on the Synod of the Family and Modernism. Read part four here.

Vatican Pope

As we are in the final week of the Synod on the Family, we look at the last excerpt from Pope St. Pius X’s encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (on Modernism).

Q. Contrast the conduct of the Modernists toward the Catholic champion with the methods displayed toward their own partisans?

A. While in flagrant contrast with this policy toward Catholics, they load with constant praise the writers who range themselves on their side, hailing their works, exuding novelty in every page, with choruses of applause.

If you have read me regularly leading up to and throughout the Synod on the Family, then you likely know where I will be going with this section. As we know, Walter Cardinal Kasper has been in favor of allowing the divorced, remarried, and actively homosexual to receive Holy Communion for quite some time. This is not new. This has been known for several decades. He is a Modernist through and through and has quite a bit of support from a number of the Cardinals.

What was even more surprising was the support he received from Pope Francis. Pope Francis stated specifically that the theology Cardinal Kasper proposed was “serene” and “an example of doing theology from one’s knees”. The theology that Cardinal Kasper proposed has already been condemned by Our Lord Jesus Christ. This can not be changed or negotiated. Those who are living in mortal sin, regardless of the sin, can not receive The Holy Eucharist. They must repent and remove themselves from the situation that puts them in their state of mortal sin. Until they amend their lives, they can not receive.

Q. How do the Modernists gage the learning of an author?

A. For them the scholarship of a writer is in direct proportion to the recklessness of his attacks on antiquity, and of his efforts to undermine Tradition and the ecclesiastical magisterium.

Q. When a Modernist falls under the condemnations of the Church, are his fellows bold enough to support him?

A. When one of their number falls under the condemnations of the Church the rest of them, to the horror of good Catholics, gather round him, heap public praise upon him, venerate him almost as a martyr to truth.

catechism of modernism

Continuing from above, we see that Pope Francis has indeed praised Cardinal Kasper for his outright attacks on Catholic teaching. What makes it even worse is the other attacks Pope Francis himself has made upon the Holy Catholic Church. This past weekend, Pope Francis called for the decentralization of the Church and allowing local bishops’ conferences the freedom to determine how they will handle the “solutions” for administering the Holy Eucharist to divorced, remarried, and actively homosexuals.

Considering Catholic teaching is crystal clear, I will spell it out for those who don’t understand. You can’t receive the Eucharist if you are in mortal sin. Doing so will compound even more mortal sin on your soul and will lead you to Hell if you die. If a Bishop or priest gives you permission to receive with mortal sin on your soul, he is damning his soul and yours. No priest or bishop has the ability to the authority to change a mortal sin.

By Pope Francis’ actions, we can see that he is no champion of the Catholic faith. Continue to fast and pray. Psalm 108:8.

The Liturgy of the Crucifixion

The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines the Mass as:

The memorial of the Lord’s Passion and Resurrection.

The Holy Sacrifice, because it makes present the one sacrifice of Christ the Savior and includes the Church’s offering. The terms holy sacrifice of the Mass, “sacrifice of praise,” spiritual sacrifice, pure and holy sacrifice are also used, since it completes and surpasses all the sacrifices of the Old Covenant.

The Holy and Divine Liturgy, because the Church’s whole liturgy finds its center and most intense expression in the celebration of this sacrament; in the same sense we also call its celebration the Sacred Mysteries. We speak of the Most Blessed Sacrament because it is the Sacrament of sacraments. The Eucharistic species reserved in the tabernacle are designated by this same name. CCC 1330

We also read in the Baltimore Catechism:

The Mass is the Sacrifice of the New Law in which Christ, through the ministry of the priest, offers Himself to God in an unbloody manner under the appearances of bread and wine.

(a) The name “Mass” comes from the Latin word Missa meaning dismissal. In the early days of the Church the catechumens were asked to leave after the gospel and sermon were finished. The faithful, however, remained until they were dismissed after the sacrifice was completed. Then, as now, this was done by saying or singing Ite Missa Est. In the course of time the word Missa, or dismissal, was used to designate the entire sacrifice. BC 357

In short, the Mass is the unbloody sacrifice of Christ on Calvary in which Jesus Christ is fully present in the form of bread and wine. When you go to Mass, this is the image you should be reminded of.

Jesus Crucified

When we see this image of Jesus bloodied and dying on the cross, we are witnessing this at Mass. We enter into this mystery. With the Novus Ordo, and its countless variables at each Mass, we must ask ourselves a serious question. Would this be appropriate if you were at the foot of the cross?

Contemporary Music

Praise and worship music would be inappropriate as it possesses no solemnity, that is, no respect for the dignity of the Holy Sacrifice. Praise and worship music, by its essence and intent, is upbeat, which elicits a response of happiness. Playing a guitar before Christ Crucified and singing “Gather Us In, the Rich and the Haughty” is insulting. If you disagree, imagine yourself dying a wrongful death upon a cross, suffocating in agony and a group of people singing this song. What would you think of them? What would you be tempted to say to them?

Gregorian Chant possesses the somber tone which from antiquity instills reverence and awe. Pope St. Pius X instated in his Motu Proprio Tra le Sollecitudini (Instruction on Sacred Music):

These qualities are to be found, in the highest degree, in Gregorian Chant, which is, consequently the Chant proper to the Roman Church, the only chant she has inherited from the ancient fathers, which she has jealously guarded for centuries in her liturgical codices, which she directly proposes to the faithful as her own, which she prescribes exclusively for some parts of the liturgy, and which the most recent studies have so happily restored to their integrity and purity.

On these grounds Gregorian Chant has always been regarded as the supreme model for sacred music, so that it is fully legitimate to lay down the following rule: the more closely a composition for church approaches in its movement, inspiration and savor the Gregorian form, the more sacred and liturgical it becomes; and the more out of harmony it is with that supreme model, the less worthy it is of the temple.

The ancient traditional Gregorian Chant must, therefore, in a large measure be restored to the functions of public worship, and the fact must be accepted by all that an ecclesiastical function loses none of its solemnity when accompanied by this music alone.

Special efforts are to be made to restore the use of the Gregorian Chant by the people, so that the faithful may again take a more active part in the ecclesiastical offices, as was the case in ancient times.

Gregorian Chant is the only form of music which will draw us into these Heavenly mysteries.

Standing During the Consecration and Receiving Communion

Standing is inappropriate as this is not just some man dying, but our Lord. When a mother loses her child, she does not stand, but rather, she collapses. She collapses over the despair of losing her beloved child. She collapses at the horror of never seeing him again. She collapses in grief and sorrow.

Much like any of us would collapse after tragically losing a loved one, we too should collapse to our knees out of grief and agony for the loss of Jesus, because He is our Lord. With the appearance of bread and wine, Jesus is fully present, Body, Blood, Soul, And Divinity. We should kneel out of respect and humility as He has dominion over us.

During the Consecration, we should kneel as the Holy Ghost descends upon the bread and wine and transubstantiates the Essence it into the Most Holy Eucharist. We kneel to receive Him because He is our Lord and only hands that have been consecrated to bring forth His transfiguration should touch Him. Those brave men who have been ordained to the priesthood or the diaconate have hands consecrated to touch Him.

Remember the conversion of St. Thomas, in John 20: 24 – 29. Thomas, both doubting and boastful, sees Jesus for the first time since their Last Supper together and the Betrayal in the Garden. Is it too much to imagine that Thomas, upon seeing Jesus, would jump up and run to Him, calling, “My Lord!” in excitement? And then, realizing that the Wounds in His Hands, Feet and Side are neither bloody nor healed, immediately fall to his knees, his face to the floor, exclaiming, “My God!” in breathless ecstasy and adoration? It all happens together, in that Eternal Moment of Sanctification.

If only hands have that have been consecrated to touch Him are allowed, then logically Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion should not be allowed, as their hands have not been consecrated. While I understand the distribution of Holy Communion would take much longer, this should never, ever be a hindrance at the Mass, but a benefit. During this time, we should be offering prayers of Thanksgiving to Our Lord for allowing us to receive Him worthily. We should bring our prayer intentions to the Lord, focusing on His Holy Sacrifice on Calvary, and thanking Him for paying the debt which we cannot pay. In a society where we are constantly bombarded by noise, this provides ample opportunity to pray in silence before our Crucified Lord.

Clapping

Pope Benedict XVI, while still Josef Cardinal Ratzinger wrote:

“Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of the liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment.” Spirit of the Liturgy

applause

Applause is used to signify an accomplishment of an individual or group. It is not meant for the Mass, especially when we remember that the Mass is the Sacrifice of Christ Crucified. We would not applaud someone else while we are standing before Christ dying on the cross. We should not clap while we are at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The focus of the Mass is not us, but on Christ.

This includes all aspects of the Mass, even when the Mass is concluded. We are in the House of God, present before Jesus Christ in the tabernacle. We do not applaud the choir, nor any other individual or group of individuals. We read in Sacrosanctum Concilium:

32. The liturgy makes distinctions between persons according to their liturgical function and sacred Orders, and there are liturgical laws providing for due honors to be given to civil authorities. Apart from these instances, no special honors are to be paid in the liturgy to any private persons or classes of persons, whether in the ceremonies or by external display.

Altar Girls

Only men can be elevated to the calling of the priesthood. Many priests, while not all, were formed and called during their time as altar boys. A direct correlation has been observed between having altar girls and boys no longer being interested in serving at the altar. When boys are not interested, they may not heed their calling to a Vocation of Holy Orders.

When boys and young men miss their vocation to the priesthood, we are left in the vocations crisis that we are currently facing. Parishes are closing because we do not have any priests to minister to them.

These are but a few examples of abuses that we should aim to eliminate from the Mass if we want to restore a sense of the sacred. Prayerfully consider encouraging your pastor to begin removing elements that are not aimed at bringing forth reverence to Our Lord.
