Jesuit James Martin congratulates Party of Death Nominee, Jesuit-educated Tim Kaine

We knew this was going to happen.

One day, this man is going to go before God, if he even really believes in the Particular Judgement. He will be held accountable for his actions, not the least of which was to praise a man who has sold his Catholic soul for less than Wales!

This, is the good little Jesuit student, that James Martin,S.J., congratulates.

"I have a traditional Catholic personal position, but I am very strongly supportive that women should make these decisions and government shouldn't intrude. I'm a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade and women being able to make these decisions. In government, we have enough things to worry about. We don't need to make people's reproductive decisions for them."

At least Mike Pence doesn't pretend to be a Catholic, anymore.

Now, how about this?

Any bets on how long it will take for a chance meeting with a certain Jorge Bergoglio, S.J. for the photo-op to secure the apostate-Catholic vote?

Idiot Bishops - learn your Latin!

Fathers Hunwicke and Zuhlsdorf have written frequently these last two weeks on the mis-translation that bishops are using to smack down the "ad orientem" issue in their dioceses. Father Z covers it again.

If it were not permitted, why is Pope Francis it so?

Just one more reason why the Novus Ordo is a dead letter. It is irreformable. There is no reform of the reform. It is a lost cause. The Novus Ordo Missae, whilst valid, is a deficient liturgy even when celebrated in Latin, ad orientem, with chant as is proper to it, incense, the Confiteor and Roman Canon, and so on. It is deficient because of the Offertory and the changing of ancient Propers and elimination of the historical, 1500 year old Lectionary! It is a bastard rite because of its Offertory and multiplicity of Eucharistic Prayers, none of this authorised or asked for by the glorious Council! 

None of it!

When one takes these deficiencies,combined with priests and bishops who enforce an outdated and incorrect liturgical theology, how can one believe that there is any possibility of reform?

The treatment of Cardinal Sarah was the final straw for me, It happened to coincide with the badly-behaving Catholics at the parish I served at for eight years. Enough! 

No more work in the nervous disorder. Traditional Mass is it.

This is my third Saturday off. Fox and I will enjoy it immensely.

GIRM WARS: Another front opens in Iowa

When the 2000 GIRM was issued (now usually cited as 2002 GIRM because it is in the 2002 Missale Romanum), a question was put to the Congregation for Divine Worship: Can a bishop, in his role as moderator of the Sacred Liturgy in the diocese, forbid ad orientemworship?
On 10 April 2000, the Congregation for Divine Worship issued an official response (Protocol No. 564/00/L) about GIRM 299 (my emphases):

Senator Tim Kaine - an apostate Catholic as Clinton's Vice-President pick

U.S. Senator Tim Kaine has been selected by the malefactor, Hilary Clinton, as the Vice-Presidential running mate.

Kaine is a Jesuit-educated Catholic.

He spins the yarn about being a "traditional Catholic," and adopts the Kennedy position.

Tim Kaine is a malefactor. An apostate Catholic. 

Mike Pence, the Veep selection by Donald J. Trump is also an "apostate Catholic" as he left the Church for evangelical protestantism. I recall reading that the former Catholics are the largest "denomination," in the United States.

What is the difference? 

Pence does not pretend to be a Catholic. This Kaine character does and calls himself "devout" and "traditional." That is hypocrisy.

Frankly, Mike Pence is a descent man. A truly, devout Christian. He is pro-life on record and in action. Of the four of them, he is the best of them. 

May the LORD lead Mike Pence back home and convert Tim Kaine.

God help America.

John Corapi said it best. 

"It is not morally possible for any Catholic to support abortion, euthanasia, fetal stem cell research, human cloning, or same-sex marriage. There are no ways around this, no justifications whatever. Why? For the simple reason that the Church holds these things to be intrinsically evil. They are evil in themselves, and no circumstances or subjective conditions can ever change that."People try to say they are pro-choice and Catholic... I'll give you one, I've heard some so called Catholic politicians say this.. we may as well talk about the truth .. Some say, I'm a good catholic , but I'm pro-choice ...'Well Happy horse manure, "There ain't no such thing, You can't be pro-choice and Catholic ... "Period!" .. You can't.... That is Impossible! ... Man, wake up, and smell the roses, you mean to tell me that you can condone killing the most innocent that would, should be the safest place in the universe for them, in their own mother's womb .. You're saying you can condone that, support that, promote that, and be a good Catholic, 'you are out of your mind'. ~Fr. Corapi

The Protestant Pope!

“On October 31, Jorge Mario Bergoglio will fly to Lund, Sweden, where he will be met by the local female bishop, to celebrate together with the Lutheran World Federation the five hundredth anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. And the closer that date gets, the more sympathy the pope manifests for the great heretic.” Sandro Magister

ROME, July 22, 2016 - In the alarmed letter that thirteen cardinals from five continents were preparing to deliver to Pope Francis at the beginning of the last synod, they were warning him against leading the Catholic Church as well to “the collapse of liberal Protestant churches in the modern era, accelerated by their abandonment of key elements of Christian belief and practice in the name of pastoral adaptation:"

Then at the last moment the thirteen deleted these two lines from the letter that was actually put into the hands of the pope. But today they would put them back in word for word, seeing the ever more pronounced idyll that is developing between Francis and the followers of Luther.

On October 31, Jorge Mario Bergoglio will fly to Lund, Sweden, where he will be met by the local female bishop, to celebrate together with the Lutheran World Federation the five hundredth anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. And the closer that date gets, the more sympathy the pope manifests for the great heretic.

Jesus sees a "gift" in Judas Iscariot according to the supposed papabile, Tagle

For those who don't see the problem with Tagle's comment, following in the footsteps of Jorge Bergoglio's about Judas being a "poor penitent," Denzinger-Bergoglio is the resource to knock this heresy down.

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila has called on Filipino Catholics not to be quick in condemning anybody but instead ‘find gifts’ in people often discredited by society.  In his homily during the closing Mass of the 3rd Philippine Conference on New Evangelization on Sunday, he said that there many people who are being treated like worthless and no one cares for them.  “Let us be careful. The person we want to discredit might be a gift of God. You don’t throw away gifts. Gifts are treasured,” Card. Tagle told the crowd gathered at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion in Manila.  The cardinal asked the people to be merciful like Jesus who sees a gift even in “wounded sheep”.  “Jesus sees a gift even in Judas,” he said. “There’s hope even in someone who had betrayed Jesus.”

Reflecting on the Gospel of John, the Archbishop of Manila said God does not want to condemn anybody, but rather seeks salvation of all people.  This means that Christians were also sent not to become signs of damnation but of mercy and love that saves.  The prelate became teary eyed when he recalled a Syrian refugee boy he met in Greece last October.  He was alone because his parents told him to go. “These are people who are thrown away by situations that they did not create, they did not intend, but they are victims,” Cardinal Tagle added.

Vatican "striking back" against faithful Catholics

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican is striking back at conservative critics of Pope Francis' landmark document on family life, ratcheting up its defense of the pope with new vigor as bishops begin implementing the document around the world.

The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano on Wednesday carried a lengthy essay by an Italian Catholic historian insisting that Francis' "The Joy of Love" was absolutely in line with his predecessors and church doctrine on the thorny issue of whether divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Communion.

Earlier this month, the Vatican-approved magazine La Civilta Cattolica ran an interview with Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn in which the Vienna archbishop pointedly rejected conservative claims that Francis' work didn't count as an authoritative teaching document.

Both articles upped the ante in the increasingly divisive theological and ideological battle sparked by "The Joy of Love," and were published on the eve of Francis' trip to Poland, where the Jesuit pope will symbolically deliver the document to the deeply conservative Polish church at a youth rally next week.

When it was released in April, "The Joy of Love" immediately sparked controversy because it opened the door to civilly remarried Catholics receiving Communion. Church teaching holds that unless these divorced and remarried Catholics obtain an annulment — a church decree that their first marriage was invalid — they cannot receive the sacrament, since they are seen as committing adultery.

Francis didn't create a church-wide pass for these Catholics, but suggested — in vague terms and strategically placed footnotes — that bishops and priests could do so on a case-by-case basis after accompanying them on a spiritual journey of discernment.

The conservative criticism was swift.

American Cardinal Raymond Burke, a figurehead for archconservatives who was removed by Francis as the head of the Vatican's supreme court, insisted that the document wasn't part of the church's teaching magisterium but rather was a personal reflection on meetings of bishops about family matters.

"The personal, that is, non-magisterial, nature of the document is also evident in the fact that the references cited are principally the final report of the 2015 session of the Synod of Bishops and the addresses and homilies of Pope Francis himself," Burke wrote in the National Catholic Register.

Schoenborn rejected Burke's claim in his interview with Civilta Cattolica.

The document, Schoenborn said, "is an act of the magisterium that makes the teaching of the church present and relevant today."

Italian Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, another leading conservative, has criticized the document as vague and confusing, and denied that it opened the door to Communion, since doing so would contradict previous church teaching on the indissolubility of marriage.

Francis' own doctrine czar, German Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, concurred with Caffarra, saying the pope would have been more clear if he had intended such an opening. Mueller argued in a May 4 speech in Spain that decisions about whether someone can receive the sacraments cannot be arrived at purely in the realm of individual, private discernment.

"A privatization of the sacramental economy would certainly not be Catholic," he said.

In Wednesday's Osservatore Romano, Italian historian and politician Rocco Buttiglione said the church has always taught that there can be cases in which the faithful might not believe themselves to be in a state of mortal sin, or might not be fully responsible for it, which can mitigate their culpability.

"The path that the pope proposes to divorced and remarried is exactly the same that the church proposes to all sinners: Go to confession, and your confessor, after evaluating all the circumstances, will decide whether to absolve you and admit you to the Eucharist or not," he wrote.

Buttiglione's argument, featured on the front page, marked a shift in the Vatican's defense of Francis' document, confronting the criticisms head-on rather than just praising the pope's text.

The initiative could signal a more concerted campaign by the Vatican to ensure that the "The Joy of Love" is interpreted as Francis intended. Already, conservative Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput has said that divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can only receive Communion in his archdiocese if they abstain from sex and live as "brother and sister."

Georg Gänswein says Pope can't change doctrine with "ambiguous footnotes." What does Thomas J. Rosica think about that?

Archbishop Georg Gänswein, serves as the Prefect for the Papal Household to Pope Francis and has made an interesting statement. According to this story in LifeSiteNews, Gänswein said:

“But when a pope wants to change an aspect of the doctrine, then he has to do so clearly, so as to make it binding,” noted the 59-year-old archbishop, a canon lawyer who formerly worked in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. … “Important magisterial tenets cannot be changed by half sentences or somewhat ambiguous footnotes.”

The erudite, Father Thomas J. Rosica, CSB, is the Vatican's English language "volunteer" spokesman and Executive Producer of Salt + Light Television. He has said, on numerous occasions:

"Will this Pope re-write controversial Church doctrines? No. But that isn't how doctrine changes. Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge such that particularly doctrinal formulations no longer mediate the saving message of God's transforming love. Doctrine changes when the Church has leaders and teachers who are not afraid to take note of new contexts and emerging insights. It changes when the Church has pastors who do what Francis has been insisting: leave the securities of your chanceries, of your rectories, of your safe places, of your episcopal residences go set aside the small minded rules that often keep you locked up and shielded from the world."

That is all.

Communiqué of Bishop Fellay - where are the rest of the "Catholic" bishops, or are they, even?

Communiqué from the Superior General to All Members of the Society of Saint Pius X at the conclusion of the meeting of major superiors in Anzère (Valais), June 28 2016

Filed under From TraditionNews
Following the meeting of the superiors of the Society of St. Pius X, in addition to the statement he read on June 29, 2016, during the priestly ordinations in Ecône, Bishop Bernard Fellay, the day before, had addressed the priests in a statement that DICI publishes today exclusively.
Réunion des supérieurs majeurs de la Fraternité Saint-Pie X (25-28 juin 2016).
Meeting of Major Superiors of the Society of Saint Pius X (25-28 June 2016).
For the glory of God,
for the honor of Our Lord Jesus Christ and of His Most Holy Mother,
for our salvation.
In the present grave state of necessity in the Church, which gives it the right to administer spiritual aid to the souls that turn to it, the Society of Saint Pius X does not seek above all a canonical recognition, to which it has a right because it is Catholic. The solution is not simply juridical. It depends on a doctrinal position that it is imperative to express.
When Saint Pius X condemned modernism, he traced the whole argument of the encyclical Pascendi back to one initial principle: independence. Now the world makes all its efforts to change the axis around which it must turn. And it is obvious to Catholics, as it is to those who are not, that the Cross is no longer that axis. Paul VI said it very well: man is (See Closing Speech of Vatican II, December 7, 1965).
Today the world turns around this, according to him, definitively established axis: human dignity, man’s conscience and freedom. Modern man exists for his own sake. Man is the king of the universe. He has dethroned Christ. Man exalts his autonomous, independent conscience, to the point of dissolving even the very foundations of the family and marriage.
The Society of Saint Pius X has always opposed this project of deconstruction of the universe, both the political society, and the Church.
To remedy this universal disorder, the Good Lord raised up a man, a Christian, a priest, a bishop. What did he do? He founded a society—a hierarchical society—the principle and end of which are just the antidote to this universal disorder: The Sacrament of Holy Orders. The purpose of the Society of Saint Pius X continues to be not only the actual remedy of the crisis but also thereby the salvation of all who cooperate in it. The Society is determined to keep doctrinal, theological and social rectitude, founded on the Cross of Jesus Christ, on His Kingship, on His sacrifice, and on His priesthood, the principle of all order and of all grace. Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre fought his whole life long for the triumph of these fundamental truths. It is incumbent on us at the present hour to redouble our efforts and to intensify the same fight on the same principles.
We are not “conciliarists”: for they deny that Christ’s cross is the world’s axis; neither are we dissenters who reject the social nature of the Church. We are a Society of priests of Jesus Christ, of the Catholic Church.
Is this truly the moment for the general restoration of the Church? Divine Providence does not abandon its Church, the head of which is the Pope, the Vicar of Jesus Christ. This is why an indisputable sign of this restoration will be the express desire will of the Supreme Pontiff to grant the means with which to reestablish the order of the priesthood, of the faith, and of Tradition, sign which will moreover be the guarantee of the necessary unity of the family of Tradition.
Christus regnat,
Christus imperat,
Deo gratias,
+ Bernard Fellay

My fellow Catholics: STOP reading the "catholic" bloggers at Patheos and Aleteia

Austin Ruse, the President of C-FAM (Centre for Family & Human Rights) a New York and Washington DC-based research institute focussing on international legal and social policy, has written an important article in Crisis Magazine.

Various writers there have taken an anti-historical and anti-catholic stance on the great and pure, Saint Maria Goretti. You all know the story of this holy virgin, I do not need to repeat it here.

What I do need to say is this.

Simcha Fisher, Mark Shea, Mary Pezzulo, Father Dwight Longenecker (yes, him too), Dave Armstrong, and many others write "click-bait." They receive their income from their writing and every click at Patheos and Aleteia feed them. Some, such as Mark Shea, goad people into fighting in the combox with him, a direct attempt to get more "clicks."

Not only that, in the case of Patheos, they also feature pages on Wicca, Paganism, Atheism and more. Why would any faithful Catholic write on religion for any group that just places the One, True, Faith on the panorama of world religions as if all are true and equal?

It is frankly, blasphemous and that is what Longenecker, Shea, Fischer and the others are doing when they write there.

Austin Ruse challenges the writing of these people on the great Saint.

It is a must-read and should be shared.

"The sinister Fr. Rosica?"

Whatever does he mean?

Not even this writer, used such an adjective to describe him. What does Father Hunwicke know that the rest of us do not?

Cupich is an ecclesiastical vandal!

I'll let John explain.

The response to Cardinal Sarah's remarks reveal the evil cabal in the Vatican itself - they can't hide anymore, they have exposed themselves

Phil Lawler has an instructive column at and an astute observation:

"In the process, the cardinal clearly hit a nerve. The overwrought reaction to his speech showed how very nervous some Catholic leaders are about any possible change to the liturgical status quo. (And by the way, is anyone completely happy with the current state of the Catholic liturgy?) Even the Vatican's response appeared wildly disproportionate.
Cardinal Kasper suggested a dramatic change in Church teaching and sacramental practice, and the Pope offered him a forum at a meeting of cardinals. Cardinal Marx suggested that the German bishops were ready to write their own rules, and drew only a quiet demurrer from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. But Cardinal Sarah makes a suggestion—for a practice that is already allowed under existing liturgical guidelines, and that was championed by Pope Benedict XVI—and immediately the Vatican press office blew the whistle and called a foul."

Father Richard Cipolla, writing at Rorate states in reference to the situation that:
"It seems that there is no limit to the nonsense that Father Lombardi allows himself to spew forth in defense of the indefensible.  We hope that once he lays aside this burden, as he will very soon, he can return to more spiritually profitable endeavors. The ideology that lies behind that repudiation of Cardinal Sarah’s exhortation to return to the Traditional posture of the priest at Mass rang out quite clearly in the Clarification.  It is an ideology that has for so many years prevented the Church from restoring the liturgical life of the Church that is necessary for the mission of the Church to the world.  It is an ideology that has no basis in Tradition and in fact is a break with Tradition.  Anyone who still believes that the Mass of Paul VI is continuous with the Roman Rite of Catholic Tradition needs to get out into the fresh air more."

The other day, I called the Novus Ordo a "bastard rite." I am not the first to use this expression. 

In the same piece at Rorate Caeli blog, Father Cipolla reminds us that:

"The heart of the ideology driving the post-Conciliar reform of the liturgical books is the destruction of  the Traditional understanding of the Mass as a sacrifice, namely, the re-presentation of the Sacrifice of Calvary, the offering of the Son to the Father.  Without the Roman Canon, which the reformers tried to get rid of entirely, that the Mass is a sacrifice is not evident in the three new Eucharistic prayers."

If that is not a "bastard rite" then I do not know what is. What will it take to get Catholic to wake up to the fact that Sacrosanctum Concilium was a seriously flawed document; that it was a compromise between radicals and what the Fathers would accept, an error on their part to be sure. What will it take for Catholic to understand that Pope Paul VI, for whatever reason, allowed himself to be manipulated and bamboozled by evil men such as Annibale Bugnini? How can a Catholic sit there, knowing anything about history, about the faith, about what existed in practice and conversions before and after their all powerful Council and say with any conviction that it is good?.

It is a disaster and the world is burning and it is the fault of the Pope, the Bishops, the Priests and John and Mary Catholic who refuse to follow the Faith of Our Fathers!

The Novus Ordo liturgy is "banal." It is a "manufactured.. These were Joseph Ratzinger's words, not mine. It is destructive to the Faith. It is horizontalist and feminised, it is Pelagianism in its fundamental development. It is a Modernist calamity that has cost millions of souls. It cannot be reformed and we have seen that in this topic on "ad orientem" and that is already part of the Missal of Paul VI.

Father Cipolla continues at Rorate:

Furthermore, the very rubrics of the Paul VI missal assume that the priest is celebrating ad orientem.  It is distressing to have to repeat all of this at this time, but the fact is that most of our bishops may have never read the rubrics in English let alone Latin.  At the "Orate fratres", the rubric reads:  Stans postea in medio altaris, versus ad populum….The obvious and easy English translation is:  Then, standing in the middle of the altar, turning  to the people….Why should he turn to the people if he is already facing them?  There are other examples where the rubric calls for the priest to turn to the people.  And again, it is tiresome to have to go through these explanations once again.  But after what happened in the slap down of Cardinal Sarah by the powers that still be, one has to rehearse certain facts and show how it is sheer ideology that has driven and continues to drive the intense hostility to the Traditional understanding of the Mass as the Holy Sacrifice (despite pious talk about the Holy Sacrifice).

How many times does it need to be repeated. Lombardi and his ilk are either plain stupid, or they are evil.

Let this writer not scandalise you, but let this.

If you cannot be scandalised by a Bishop of Rome who refuses to genuflect to Our Lord on the Altar at Mass but can grovel to wash the feet of a Mohammedan woman on Holy Thursday and literally hundreds of others over the years in violation of liturgical law, thus bastardising the ancient ritual, then you should surely not be scandalised by my words.

Look, if the Pope wants to give example of visiting the poor and washing their wounds or their feet, this is a wonderful thing. Let him do it. Let every bishop and priest and ourselves take up the work. But not on Holy Thursday! Frankly, Jorge Bergoglio, in this regard, is nothing more than a narcissistic, egoist. What man would do such work in front of world-wide media rather than to let his good works be done in secret, that he not receive the praise and adulation of the world. It is hypocrisy of the worst kind. There is no humility in it. Just as there is no humility in living at the Casa Santa Marta versus the Apostolic Palace. It costs more to keep him in the hotel! Where is the humility in this. It is all a show.

It is a lie.

Nor should my Sedevacantist friends rejoice that I am ready to jump into the deep and join in their error, but I love them just the same.

Habemus Papam! For better or worse.

What we have is exactly what Popes and Doctors, Saints and Prophets and Holy Scripture with Holy Tradition and various apparitions of Our Blessed Mother have told us. What we have is exactly what St. Pius X warned us about in Pascendi. What we have is exactly what the tin-foiled-hat Catholic has been saying for years: Freemasons and communists and sodomites have infiltrated the Church of Christ and are now at Her highest levels in order to destroy the faith from within and create a new cult of man that will aid in the globalist agenda of world domination.  That is exactly what we have!

That Federico Lombardi, S.J., James Martin, S.J., Anthony Spadaro, S.J., (development of theme, here) along with Cardinals such as Nichols and other priests, press and commentators would ignore the obvious from Kasper and Marx but would condemn the actual truth expressed by Cardinal Sarah of the reality of the Missal of Paul VI, today, right now, without any change whatsoever and with no so-called. "reform of the reform" is indeed, instructive. It is more than that, it is revealing. 

It reveals that these men are evil. That they do not understand the Holy Mass. That in all of their education, they are nothing more than Modernists. They have no supernatural faith. They have lost all belief. They are malefactors and swine, they are filthy bastards who must repent or they will go to Hell for what they have done not just to their own souls but to millions of others.

Let me add this comment from my good friend at The Eye-Witness, Aged Parent, who writes:

The fast track to oblivion is in full swing thanks to all the incoherent ramblings of an unstable man and his proclamations, the most damaging of which is without question Amoris Laetitia, brilliantly dissected by Mr James Larson here and in the writings of others.  With that exhortation all Hell is about to break loose.  Indeed the results are already before us.  Francis has unleashed a runaway train.
Many have valiantly tried to get it through the Pope's head that he is leading the Church to schism, heresy and disaster.  His autocratic stubbornness has made their pleas, so far, fall upon deaf ears.  He is a child of the Society of Judas, of Teilhard, of de Lubac and Rahner and as such is not open to an Aquinas or a Chrysostum or certainly not an Athanasius.  As H Reed Armstrong recently noted in Christian Order:

Pope Francis has caused this. He has allowed it. It matters not what he told Cardinal Sarah before. what matters is what he has done, or at least permitted, now. 

Do not focus on what they say. Focus on what they do.

National Catholic Reporter has racist view of Cardinal Sarah. Don't #AfricanCardinalsMatter?

If Francis does nothing to make such structural and juridical changes, it is not inconceivable that when the overwhelmingly conservative College of Cardinals elects his successor -- and most likely in the not too distant future -- the new pope would reverse the movement for reform that's currently underway.
And if it were a Pope Cyprian I or Pius XIII (also known as Cardinal Robert Sarah), the reversal would be swift and uncompromising. Of course, they'd have to tear down the walls of our churches to prevent people from crushing each other in the mass exodus that might cause.

Cardinal Pell sidelined by Bergoglio and the cabal - financial corruption is the name of the game at the Vatican - have the Know-Nothings been right all these years?

"My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have turned it into a den of thieves" says the Lord.

Why break a pattern, right?

Lutheranism in Evangelii Gaudium.

Moral corruption in Amoris Laetitia.

Liturgical disorientation.

Heresy spouted on a regular basis.

Insults from the Vicar of Christ.

At least these enemies of Our Lord and His Church are consistent.

They have disgraced the Church. They have sullied their garments. They have fornicated with the world. 

They have the buildings. We have the Faith.

Jorge Bergoglio is responsible.

Phyllis Zagano and National Schismatic Reporter accuse Vox Cantoris of schism - calumny tweeted out by Tom Rosica. Where's the mercy for us "self-absorbed, promethean, neo-Pelagians?"

This writer has been accused by the National "Catholic" Reporter of being a schismatic.

That's rich coming from a newspaper that has been ordered by more than one Bishop to remove the word "Catholic" from it's title.

Phyllis Zagano recently lectured at St. Michael's College in Toronto; a lecture promoting the cause of so-called "women deacons." The attention given to her thesis also ended up in the Archdiocesan owned Catholic Register. The conference was also attended by the Judicial Vicar for the Archdiocese of Toronto. Did he rebuke her?  That College is a Baslian institution, the same Congregation to which Thomas J. Rosica belongs. 

Who are the schismatics?

Yet, Phyllis Zagano has the uncharitable and unmitigated gall to label this blogger, a schismatic. She, who is travelling around to diocese after diocese as a dissenter promoting the idea that there were women deacons who had a liturgical purpose and should again. That, is not Catholic. That, is a schismatic attitude. 

While she refers to bloggers in general, she highlights the vexatious and frivolous threat of a lawsuit by Thomas J. Rosica, CSB of the ever failing and irrelevant Salt + Light and sometimes Vatican "volunteer" spokesperson, which may change under the new lay director, Greg Burke. Yet, she states it in such a way that his idiotic and stupid action had any effect other than to raise the readers of this blog by 2,000,000! Pretty smart move, Tom.

You can read it below without clicking there.

I follow the faith of my mother and father. Do they?

I worship in the manner that my Lebanese grandparents did when they came to Canada. Do Phyllis or Tom worship in the manner of their Italian ancestors?

I believe everything that my parents were taught by the faith. That men marry women, that adultery is a grievous sin, that sodomy is one of the four sins crying out to heaven for justice and that there is no mercy without truth and justice. Do they?

I married my wife in the same ceremony that her parents were married in Capetown and mine in Toronto. Does that make me a schismatic?

I accept that Jorge Bergoglio is the Bishop of Rome because the priests of that Diocese accept him as such and as such, he is the Pope, for better or worse. Mostly worse and that does not make me a schismatic. Though I really think he should contact Gammarelli about his mitre.

Tom Rosica has frequently said that "doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge." Is that Catholic truth?

I believe all that the historical magisterium of the Catholic Church teaches and She teaches what I believe. Do they?

Who then, are the schismatics?

Listen Phyllis, you've lost. This screed from you and Tom and many others proves it. 

Your FrancisChurch is going to come crashing down.

Very soon.

The next schism isn't down the road somewhere. It is already here. The proponents are lined up in a serious face-off, their team shirts emblazoned "Pre-Vatican II" and "Post-Vatican II."

The "Pre" folks are the all Latin, all the time minority, solemnly preferring Bach during liturgy. The "Post" people comprise the rest of us, dutifully singing St. Louis Jesuits' songs and even (gasp!) exchanging handshakes at the kiss of peace.

The fissure is getting worse, as more and more younger people come along yearning for the good old days (before they were born) when everything was orderly, everything had its place, and the rules were followed.

Meanwhile, older church professionals who adjusted to vernacular liturgies and who incorporate mercy into their understandings of justice are retiring daily. They are being replaced, where they are replaced, by people whose theological education is complemented by self-appointed Internet theo-bloggers whose opinions grow from the conviction that anything that happened since 1965 is anathema.

That is probably why Fr. Thomas Rosica, a Canadian priest and CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation took on the so-called Catholic blogosphere several weeks ago, as he delivered the keynote address at the Brooklyn, N.Y., diocesan World Communications Day events. Rosica reported that many people say to him that "we 'Catholics' have turned the internet into a cesspool of hatred, venom and vitriol, all in the name of defending the faith!"

It is true. The internet, as Rosica said in Brooklyn, "can be an international weapon of mass destruction, crossing time zones, borders, and space."

Rosica, whose attorneys sent a "cease and desist" letter to a Canadian blogger who attacked him with a combination of character assassination and misinformation, charitably reported that "Often times the obsessed, scrupulous, self-appointed, nostalgia-hankering virtual guardians of the faith or of liturgical practices are very disturbed, broken and angry individuals, who never found a platform or pulpit in real life and so resort to the internet and become trolling pontiffs and holy executioners!"

I agree. Because they never did or at least no longer do find space in legitimate media, the self-appointed pontiffs build internet and other social media followings for their unfiltered personal attacks on anyone who strays beyond the boundaries of the church of their imaginings. In unedited postings, they freely criticize anyone -- from the pope on -- who carries and/or lives the Gospel in the "wrong" way.

I hope my own experience with these type persons is atypical. While Rosica's attorneys demanded his attacker stop assassinating the priest's character, my own university actually banned a nasty blogger from campus and any online activities some years ago, when he tried to disrupt one of my online seminars. The idea was to keep him away from me. Aside from denigrating my scholarship and defending his personal version of the faith, my attacker also brags about carrying a gun.

That is where the schism is now. It is no longer butchers and bakers having street fights over Real Presence, or any other theological issue. It is shoot-from-the-hip typists whose access to bandwidth lets them threaten your livelihood and, implicitly at least, your life. What they say is true because they say it, no matter their lack of credentials or, possibly, sanity.

The slow and steady recovery of church life during the papacy of Francis is marred by these true schismatics, who denigrate the pope and everything he says and does, and who long for the good old days. These bleating word processors have influenced, are influencing, and will influence otherwise kind people, who think verbal brickbats and worse will bring the church "around." Around to what?

Free yourself - get out of the bastard rite! The Reform of the Reform is dead!

Sooner or later friend, you are going to do it.

You are going to wake up one morning and realise you cannot do it anymore. You cannot fool yourself. 

Leave it. Leave the "serviettes" - the girl altar boys, and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Leave the horizontal man-centred, sorry "person- centred" liturgy, leave the banality. Leave the distortion, the happy-clappy priest in tie-dye polyester. Leave the guitars and bongos. Leave the bad homilies, the heresy and the stupid, bad-behaving Catholics who do not care about their own souls or yours because we're all going to heaven anyway. Leave the protestantism, the bad music and the effeminate, sodomite priests and lesbian nuns and feminazi parish organisers. 

Leave it. Get out of the Novus Ordo liturgy. 

Free yourself.

Get to the traditional Latin Mass.


Get there.

Louie Verrecchio nails the bastards and their bastard rite to the wall in the "instructive" revelation and humiliation of Cardinal Sarah.  

The good news?

They've already lost and are desperate and that is why they are doing it.

Even kids know how it's done!

Joseph Shaw of the LMS in England has performed a valiant exercise in documenting the death of the Reform of the Reform and the 1965 Missal. My recollection, as a young boy, was that the 1965 Missal was the "New Mass" and the "Mass of Vatican II." There was no indication to the people in the pew (from my acquired knowledge) that there was another liturgy coming. However the changes were continuous but in the manner of boiling a frog. When the bastard liturgy was enacted there was no Missal or Chant book until 1974. By then, the wheels had already fallen off the cart and it was too late. 

Dr. Shaw's commentary is right on the mark.
