Ite Missa Est. Well, this is the end of the road for HallowedGround. I’m pretty much “blogged out”. Not a bad run, eh? Alot of real great pictures were posted, laughs were had, tears were shed (so melodramatic!). Between work (or possibly in the near future the lack thereof!), and other issues I am just really tired of blogging. Let it be said, that when I first started blogging, I was primarily concerned about the then-fabled “Motu Proprio”. We exhorted each other to pray for it, and the Good Lord being Good was propitious upon his people, and it was issued! Always pray for Pope Benedict XVI. Benedict has put “traditionalism” back into the life of the Church. When I came back to the Church about 5 years ago, it was due in no small part to the Latin Mass. He has taken the Ancient Liturgy from the fringes, and put it back into the Heart of the Church where it belongs. He has given the Church a new, lively step as of late, and things seem like they’re picking up.

If I have said anything to offend anyone, I am sorry. Please pray for this poor sinner, I have always been overly cantankerous.

Yes, the blog will be staying up in perpetuity, or at least until WordPress goes out of business. Also, I promised I would open up the “vaults” when this blogging thing wore out. Please do use them on your blogs, just because I stopped blogging doesn’t mean “Traditional Catholic Visualism” has to end. I have used about 75-80% of the pics I have stored. You can find them in these places:

Oh.. A Big P.S.:
Due to repeated questions of  “Ken, where do you  get these great pics?”etc…left in the combox of numerous posts, I have promised that I would eventually provide some tips & hints for finding great pics. Well, here you go:

Foreign Ebay always has tons of great “Churchy”  pics, go to Italian Ebay, and put in Papa Pio/Paolo/Giovanni. Or German Ebay and put in Papst Pius/Paul/Johannes. Or any of the foreign ones for that matter. And the same things go for Foreign Google picture searches: Italian Google. Great Example: French Google: type in Soutane. You get the picture!

Thank you all for coming to this blog, I hope it occasionally edified you.

He that giveth testimony of these things, saith, Surely I come quickly: Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Book of Revelation)

PhotobucketHomosexualist Zealots Attacking Mormon Temple in L.A.

What’s going on in California? Anti-democratic homosexualist riots are continuing. The people of California voted, and the people voted against the homosexual fiction. Are we Americans to riot every time a ballot doesn’t go our way? Is this a precedent we wish to establish? Mind you, America has just elected a far-left politician, who also happens to be our first black president. Should folks who disagree with the results of the Presidential election (whatever their reasons) take to the streets and violently disrupt society? Be careful. Yet, this is what is happening in California as we speak. The majority of Californians voted against Homosexual “marriage”, despite years of mainstream media brain-washing. Now, the homosexual agenda wants to take it out of the hands of the people, and have the case decided by an faceless judiciary. Just as important, and dangerous, is the violent attack made against religious institutions (some Catholics, mostly Mormons). Now, as much as I think mormonism is ridiculous, having a fringe group overtly attacking them is very frightening, and points to an increasingly violent, anti-democratic radical movement. They talk of “tolerance” and “discrimination”, and yet spew violent hatred on  their fellow Americans, Democracy, and Religious Freedom when it stands in their way. I wouldn’t be suprised if the Totalitarians of the 21st century will be wearing Lavender jackboots.  Article on Issue Article on the violent mindset of the rioters

And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but he was asleep. And they came to him, and awaked him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish. And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm. Matt 8:24

While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity, heavily thickening
to empire
And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops and sighs out, and the
mass hardens,
I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make fruit, the fruit rots
to make earth.
Out of the mother; and through the spring exultances, ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.
You making haste haste on decay: not blameworthy; life is good, be it stubbornly long or suddenly
A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mountains:
shine, perishing republic.
But for my children, I would have them keep their distance from the thickening center; corruption
Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie at the monster’s feet there
are left the mountains.
And boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man, a clever servant,
insufferable master.
There is the trap that catches noblest spirits, that caught – they say –
God, when he walked on earth. Robinson Jeffers: Shine, Perishing Republic

Oh Cincinnatus of the Potomac! Weep for the Republic! Leftist Rabble have taken the ramparts…The Leathery Wings of Socialism are casting a dark shadow over our fair land. The Bureaucratic Vampires of the Nanny State are sharpening their teeth, and marking our veins. The Grand Turk has taken the reins…. The Demoniac Party’s planks of Atheism, Socialism, and Pre-Natal Infanticide will be further entrenched into law. My countrymen have become “flakes”, they are the most gullible politically-corrected dullards, they have elected their own chains. I never thought we would buy into Euro-style short-leash Socialism. Evidently they want Big-Daddy government handing out bread. They forget there’s a price attached. They have castrated and lobotomized themselves, and call it Freedom. Elected a man who has done nothing for this country. The Ayatollah Barak-Hussein-Obama will have a Demoniac Majority Congress, and he will stack an aging Supreme Court with like minded men. I just finished watching the crowds on the TV news shows, flashing to triumphant Obama supporters quipped up into a Hitlerite Euphoria. <Sigh>As the Omnipotent state rises, Thank God for the 2nd Amendment.

As for you American “Catholics” out there who voted for this guy…If you’re a Catholic I’m an Algonquin Shaman.

I call heaven and earth to witness this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Deut 30:18

“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” Barack Obama, March 29th 2008

It is no less true that we are confronted by an even larger reality, which can be described as a veritable structure of sin. This reality is characterized by the emergence of a culture which denies solidarity and in many cases takes the form of a veritable “culture of death”. This culture is actively fostered by powerful cultural, economic and political currents which encourage an idea of society excessively concerned with efficiency. Looking at the situation from this point of view, it is possible to speak in a certain sense of a war of the powerful against the weak: a life which would require greater acceptance, love and care is considered useless, or held to be an intolerable burden, and is therefore rejected in one way or another. A person who, because of illness, handicap or, more simply, just by existing, compromises the well-being or life-style of those who are more favoured tends to be looked upon as an enemy to be resisted or eliminated. In this way a kind of “conspiracy against life” is unleashed. Pope John Paul II: Evangelium Vitae

St. Paul: Let women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted them to speak, but to be subject, as also the law saith. But if they would learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church. 1 Cor 14 (wouldn’t it be funny/sad/telling if this reading was in the N.O. lectionary, and was being read to the congregation by a woman?!)

Contra St. Paul: ***Probably the most newsy — and somewhat unexpected — item in the final propositions of the Synod of Bishops on the Bible was a proposal to allow women to be officially installed in the ministry of lector.

The issue was raised in Proposition 17 on “The ministry of the word and women,” and on Saturday morning it passed with 191 votes in favor, 45 opposed and three abstentions, according to our sources***.CNS article

Isn’t that special? I cringe when I hear people speak of Modernism in the past tense, as if it was some early 20th century heresy that was crushed, vanquished, and we can now breathe easy. Nonsense. Modernism has the Church in a strangle hold, and is slowly squeezing the life out of Her as we watch. These men with itchy ears are running the Church, and are the instruments of destruction. You never know what they are going to do, they’re almost totally untrustworthy. Another abuse becomes the norm.

Thus far, history has not yet given humanity a just war. Despite philosophical or theological rationalizations, there is no such animal as a just war. Only fools say otherwise. Only clowns wear smiles during war. And only those, whose business is war, rejoice when war is actually waged. Philippine Bishops Statement

**What? No just wars, ever? Somebody should have told the guys in the below pics there are “no just wars” when they were fighting and dying to save the bishops own country from Japanese slavery. His comments sound silly, cowardly, and against the teaching of the Church.**

Where the Hell is Osama? Did we forget about Bin Laden while fighting for Israel in Iraq? (thanks to AIPAC, and our Evangelical “brethren”). If you would have told me in Sept-Oct 2001 that 7 years later Muhammeds truest son would still be breathing I would have laughed, or have been very angry. But, nonetheless here we are. Justice delayed is justice denied.

In my eyes at least, Bush can partially redeem his otherwise horrible presidency by getting this guy before he leaves office. (Since his malfeasance almost guarantees a Democratic win in the upcoming election, or at best a razor thin Republican win).

President Obama will be too busy building his vision of a Socialism: American Style (Federally mandated sodomite “marriage”, more liberal pre-natal infanticide laws, civilian brownshirsts, Sex ed in Kindergarten, you get the picture..) than hunting down his co-religionists in Afghanistan. (Mrs. Obama is the really scary one). I digress from the filth of politics, back to the question….

What the Hell? Osama is still alive 7 years after murdering over 3000 Americans in our own backyard!

When I was a teenager/early 20′s, and was very far from practicing my Faith, anything like this would have kept me miles away from the Church. A bunch of suggary, “slap-happy” drama-club kids clapping hands, strumming guitars, and saying things like “Ain’t Jesus great, gang!”, or, “Let’s Praise Him” would have led me to a mix of nausea and ridicule. The only reason I would have went would be to meet girls (evidently, from some of the below pics, many boys thought the same).

However, WYD serves a purpose, as it shows in one concentrated locale what Traditional Catholics are fighting against, and why we exist. Is this what Christianity is? Is that it? Hanging out half naked, half drunk (don’t you doubt some are drunk, or worse), and un-reformed at a Giant Woodstock Mass with 100,000 people?  I don’t even want to think about the many acts of Sacrelige such a gathering practically gaurantees. It just creates another generation of half-ass “Catholics”.

From Article on WYD :

Along with the spiritual aspects of the event, the social interaction that comes with hundreds of thousands of young people mingling is also a big attraction for the pilgrims.

“Just the euphoria of everyone coming together, all different countries for one purpose, for peace,” said one young female pilgrim.

“It’s a good time because you can do so many things you don’t expect to be doing and there’s great people, you can be doing partying when you don’t expect to,” said a young male participant. (Article on WYD, and justified response from the local SSPX folks)

Warning: Some of the below pictures from past WYD Masses are scandalous, profane, and indecent. Some might lead to indecent thoughts, and contempt for clergy. **Isn’t that sad, that Mass can lead to indecency?, Speaks volumes!**

What the Hell?

This is a cover a new book I saw on B&N. It features on the cover a statue commemorating a meeting between Pope Paul VI, and Metropolitan Meliton of Chalcedon. Evidently the statue is based on an actual occurance of Paul VI prostrating himself before the Metropolitan, and kissing his feet. I have yet to find a full picture of the statue, or the event itself. (If you find one, drop a link in the combox). Now, I am first guy who approves of increased friendship with the Orthodox. However, the question with this is: What the Hell?

Secular “Saints”

For some reason progressive “Catholics” have decided to elevate non-Catholics into their own pseudo-Canon of “acceptibles”. Gandhi especially has been presented as a paragon of the only “dogmas” now taught: tolerence, peace, dialog, niceness, ecumenism, holiness without Christ & His Church (that’s the big one)..bla.bla.bla..you know the nonsense… Well, I hate to burst bubbles, but just in case you didn’t know, a little background on the secular “saint” on black natives in S. Africa. He was very much a Hindu who did not like mixing even among different “castes”, let alone with the African natives of Johannesburg. The below quotes are his opinion of the Indians being classed along with “kaffirs” (his term) during his time in South Africa.
(*Note: The word “kaffir” is considered an insulting term for blacks in S. Africa)

Gandhi1.jpg picture by kjk76_95(“icon” of the “saint” by some delusional loon)

On having to live near Africans:
Why, of all places in Johannesburg, the Indian location should be chosen for dumping down all kaffirs of the town, passes my comprehension.

Of course, under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population, and it is an undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen.
_____________________________________________________

On having to use public transportation with Africans:
You say that the magistrate’s decision is unsatisfactory because it would enable a person, however unclean, to travel by a tram, and that even the Kaffirs would be able to do so. But the magistrate’s decision is quite different. The Court declared that the Kaffirs have no legal right to travel by tram. And according to tram regulations, those in an unclean dress or in a drunken state are prohibited from boarding a tram. Thanks to the Court’s decision, only clean Indians or colored people other than Kaffirs, can now travel in the trams. (Read Article deflating the myth of the “saint”)

Although the teaching that priestly ordination is to be reserved to men alone has been preserved by the constant and universal Tradition of the Church and firmly taught by the Magisterium in its more recent documents, at the present time in some places it is nonetheless considered still open to debate, or the Church’s judgment that women are not to be admitted to ordination is considered to have a merely disciplinary force.

Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church’s divine constitution itself, in virtue of my ministry of confirming the brethren (cf. Lk 22:32) I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful. (John Paul II: ORDINATIO SACERDOTALIS)

When the One True God of the Universe was worshipped only by Abram and a small group of people who came from Chaldea the priest who offered sacrifice was the Father of the Family. Never adminstered to liturgically by female hands.

Then that same God manifested himself to Moses, and revealed to him how he was to be worshipped by the Chosen People. Aaron and his sons were to be the only ministers at the Altar. Never adminstered to liturgically by female hands.

Then that same God came down to Earth to save us sinners, and took the name Yeshua ben Yousef (Jesus son of Joseph). He established a Church with many disciples, but only 12 Apostles. He established the Sacraments, and gave them to the Apostles, and to their spiritual descendents (Bishops) in perpetuity. Yet, Christ Himself only ordained 12 Apostles, all of whom were men. This same God was: Never adminstered to liturgically by female hands.

Members of St. Barnabas Parish in Mazomanie say they are stunned to learn that the priests leading their Catholic community will no longer allow their daughters to be servers at Mass. From now on, only boys will be able to assist priests in the ancient religious rite.

The new policy was announced at a meeting with parents Tuesday by Rev. John Del Priore, who was assigned to the parish on June 1.

“It’s an outrage,” said Tammy Parks. “They said it was a good way for boys to be indoctrinated into being a priest.”  After letting her 11-year-old daughter know that she would no longer be allowed on the altar, Del Priore asked her 8-year-old son about his interest in becoming an altar boy, Parks said in an interview.

“Not only is the priest discriminating against my daughter, he’s teaching my son that that is appropriate behavior,” she said.  Parents at St. Barnabas are so distressed that there is talk of having the boys boycott altar duty.

The Catholic Church broke with centuries of tradition in 1994, when the Vatican said girls would be allowed to join “altar boys” in assisting priests at Mass. (Read about the “outrage”)

You can send a note of encouragement to the Pastor of the Parish here.

Get ready for more of this stuff over the next 20-30 years. Sweeping “feminism” out of the sanctuary. Another part of  “New Evangelization” which has forced Catholics to argue ad nauseam over the basic rudiments, and traditions of the Faith all over again. Arguing over things which never should have been in the first place. It’s like repeatedly teaching a 25 year old how to tie his shoes. Wasted time. 27 years of novelty, confusion and destruction.

“Having set our minds to remove everything that may in some way offend the Divine Majesty, We resolve to punish, above all and without indulgence, those things which, by the authority of the Sacred Scriptures or by most grievous examples, are most repugnant to God and elicit His wrath; that is, negligence in divine worship, ruinous simony, the crime of blasphemy, and the execrable libidinous vice against nature. For which faults peoples and nations are scourged by God, according to His just condemnation, with catastrophes, wars, famine and plagues. . . . Let the judges know that, if even after this, Our Constitution, they are negligent in punishing these crimes, they will be guilty of them at Divine Judgment and will also incur Our indignation. . . . If someone commits that nefarious crime against nature that caused divine wrath to be unleashed against the children of iniquity, he will be given over to the secular arm for punishment; and if he is a cleric, he will be subject to analogous punishment after having been stripped of all his degrees [of ecclesiastical dignity].” (St. Pius V in article about teaching of Church against Sodomy)

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination. . . . Defile not yourselves with any of these things with which all the nations have been defiled, which I will cast out before you, and with which the land is defiled: the abominations of which I will visit, that it may vomit out its inhabitants. . . . Beware then, lest in like manner, it vomit you also out, if you do the like things, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. Every soul that shall commit any of these abominations, shall perish from the midst of his people. . . . I am the Lord your God.” (Levi 18:22-30)

What precipatated this Post?:
Dr Qazi Rahman, a lecturer in cognitive biology at Queen Mary, University of London, said that he believed that these brain differences were laid down early in foetal development.

“As far as I’m concerned there is no argument any more – if you are gay, you are born gay,” he said.

The amygdala, he said, was important because of its role in “orientating”, or directing, the rest of the brain in response to an emotional stimulus – be it during the “fight or flight” response, or the presence of a potential mate. (Article on “Gay Brain”)

Response: So what? Every Human Being on this planet is attracted to some form of Sin. Whether or not there is a physical phenomenon to explain this is irrelevant. Known Example: Men with high Testostorone levels tend to exhibit higher levels of promiscuity, and violence. Does that decrease the culpability of their actions? If so, then we would need to release most of the prison population. I would not be suprised in the coming years if science eventually finds physical “proofs” for “voilence brain wrinkles”, or “greed genes”, etc.. Why so? Since when does Original Sin effect only the soul of man? Is not the body also groaning under sin? You have the answer every time you pass by a cemetary, hospital, or dentist office.

Homosexuals want their sin to be exempt, they want us to say their sin is not sin. They want us to call evil good. They have organized themselves, and are forcing Society to go along with it. Why don’t all pick-pockets get organized, and campaign against “anti-Thieve” sentiments. Create something called “Theiveaphobia”, and lambast all who disagree as biogots, hate-mongers, etc. We’ll have an annual “Thief Pride Parade” down 5th Avenue!

Even if all Humanity lost it’s mind and it’s morals and acquiesced to the “normalization” of Sodomy it would still be Objectively wrong. Example: Imagine if all men in the world held hands , and simultaneously screamed out “Homosexuality is normal”, would it make it so? How about if they screamed out “The sky is green, and there are 2 Suns in the sky!”, would it change anything? We understand the word Objectively to be the view of God, right? He is the Only One who’s “opinion” matters. His “opinion” is reality, it’s what we live in. And, we know He considers this particular sin to be an Abomination. We are not doing the folks who suffer with same-sex attraction any favours by going along with the Organized Homosexual aganda. We’re just greasing the skids into The Exterior Darkness.

Gregorius_XVI_-Franceso_Podesti-1.jpg picture by kjk76_95
 (Source)

Warning: Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that “there is one God, one faith, one baptism” may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that “those who are not with Christ are against Him,” and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore “without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.” (Gregory XVI: Mirari Vos)

Reason for the Warning: “Yes, the people are obsessed by Islam. For example I’m going to India next month and I want to give this message that all religions are equal. Sometimes there are priorities because of particular situations, but we mustn’t get the impression there are first class religions and second class religions,” said Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Pontifical Council. He also  said “[Christians] have many things in common with other believers – for example that we all believe in one God, that we profess the same sacredness of life, the necessity of fraternity, the experience of prayer.” (Interview of Cardinal Tauran)

Hello All, Over the next week or so, I will be re-posting the pictures of the Canonization of Pope St. Pius X. You might be asking: Why Ken, we have seen them all already, what are you getting lazy with this blogging thing? Woah,…slow down there Punky Brewster! The reason is actually quite simple, and is for your benefit, my dearly beloved viewers. When I first was given the pictures by a Priestly reader (thanks Father!) of my old Blog-city blog, I used flickr instead of Photobucket to host my pictures.

Now, hindsight being 20/20,  I know that Flickr is vastly inferior to Photobucket in every respect, but especially when it comes to showing very large pics. Looking at the Page on the Canonization pics, and comparing them to what they actually look like (in full size), I realized the smaller size really cannot do them justice. So, thanks to switching to Photobucket, and to the recent unveiling of Catholic Pictures (handmaid to Hallowed Ground) , I can now present to you the ceremony in all it’s photographed glory.

Please do look at Catholic Pictures every day for the next 2 weeks or so. I do hope you enjoy them. Here is a snippet of a screen shot for the first in the series: What are you waiting for? Go!

The Papal Mass today. What can I say ? So nice to see blatant liturgical abuse done in the presence of the Pope. The “lovely” Indian drum music, with Pan piping in the background. How embarrassing for the Church. The whole country/world was watching, and this was the best American Catholicism can offer? When not playing Aztec pagan pipe/drum music, they were doing a Broadway musical performance. I was waiting for Rum Tum Tugger to come out, and dance in front of the Altar. All the music had bells in the background, yet at the consecration,..not one bell.

 At least the Holy Father can see our “Local Liturgical norm” i.e. (silly, banal, and ugly) that American Catholics see at their local parish week in, and week out. The wisdom, and the necessity of the Motu Proprio becomes apparent.  Even the priestly commentator on EWTN mentioned the abuses, and the fact that every liturgical malady that Pope Benedict has spoken out against was on display. This was AmChurch saying: “This is how we do things, and we’re not going to change, Pope or No Pope!”.

Another thing, what was with all the Spanish? Are we “Latin America” now? Weird bi-lingualism. The singing in every language at the end of the mass, how stupid.  My, if only we had a common language! Oh, wait a second what’s that old language that Catholics use to use, uh.., oh Latin. Gosh. It was just a show, with people clapping at ever little thing. Did that seem prayerful to anyone? Was that Worship of the Most High God? Would our ancestors in the faith have seen that as being Catholic? Hopefully the New York Mass won’t be such an embarrassment. Good Grief!

Anwar Ashiqi, president of the Saudi centre for Middle East strategic studies, endorsed this view in an interview on the site of Arab satellite TV network, al-Arabiya on Thursday.

“I haven taken part in several meetings related to Islamic-Christian dialogue and there have been negotiations on thisissue,” he said.

“It would be possible to launch official negotiations to construct a church in Saudi Arabia only after the Pope and all the Christian churches recognise the prophet Mohammed.”

“If they don`t recognise him as a prophet, how can we have a church in the Saudi kingdom?” Ashiqi`s comments came after a declaration launched by the papal nuncio of the Persian Gulf, the archbishop Mounged El-Hachem, at the opening of the first Catholic church in Qatar last week.  (Rorate Caeli post)

Christ does indeed speak of Mohammed (amoung others):

For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand. If therefore they shall say to you: Behold he is in the desert, go ye not out. (Matt 24:24)
——————————-
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall seduce many. (Matt 24:11)
——————————-
Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (Epistle John 4:1)
—————————–
And the false prophet shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Apoc 20:10)

These Jews, who were blind to all things, called on the Emperor (Julian the Apostate) for help and begged him to aid them in undertaking to rebuild the temple. The Emperor, for his part, spared no expense, sent engineers from all over the empire to oversee the work, summoned craftsmen from every land; he left nothing undone, nothing untried. At the same time, in his mad folly, he was hoping to cancel out the sentence passed by Christ which forbade the rebuilding of the temple.

They removed a great mound of earth and began to lay bare the foundations. They were just about to start building when suddenly fire leaped forth from the foundations and completely consumed not only a great number of the workmen but even the stones piled up there to support the structure. This put a stop to the untimely obstinacy of those who had undertaken the project. Many of the Jews, too, who had seen what had happened, were astonished and struck with shame. The Emperor Julian had been madly eager to finish the work. But when he heard what had happened, he was afraid that, if he went on with it, he might call down the fire on his  own head. (St. John Chrysostom Against the Jews Homily V)

Julian the Apostate

He (Julian) planned at vast cost to restore the once splendid temple at Jerusalem. He had entrusted the speedy performance of this work to Alypius of Antioch. But, though this Alypius pushed the work on with vigour, aided by the governor of the province, terrifying balls of flame kept bursting forth near the foundations of the temple, and made the place inaccessible to the workmen, some of whom were burned to death; and since in this way the element persistently repelled them, the enterprise halted. (Ammianus Marcellinus Chronicler of the Emperor Julian)

Contrast: The Jewish Third Temple movement have built a theologically improbable alliance with evangelical Christians, who have come to believe that the Second Coming of Jesus–already accelerated by the return of the Jews to Israel–will be given even more momentum if the Jews build the Third Temple. If they build it, He will come. (Evangelical Support for rebuilding the Temple)

Pope Benedict XVI will modify the Good Friday prayers used in the Tridentine Mass that generated protests from Jewish leaders who found the prayers offensive, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Latin prayers for Good Friday that asked Catholics to “pray also for the Jews that the Lord our God may take the veil from their hearts and that they also may acknowledge Our Lord Jesus Christ,” asking God not to “refuse your mercy even to the Jews; hear the prayers which we offer for the blindness of that people so that they may acknowledge the light of your truth, which is Christ, and be delivered from their darkness.” (Link to story)

Reactions of the Jewish Community to the changes of the Catholic Liturgy were not exactly muted: (Why wouldn’t they be happy, they got the stupid “goyim” to change their Religion.)

Just because I’m sick of the politically correct jibber-jabber that passes for politics during an election season (they all suck, the only decent one (Ron Paul) will not win the Republicrat primary, and he said he won’t run as an Independent). So, just to shake things up a bit, some praise for Jefferson Davis, and the death of the small, locally managed Jeffersonian democratic republic he represented (commonly, and erroneously referred to as “states rights”, actually it was much more local).

Whilst Davis was in prison, Blessed Pope Pius IX sent, to the former President of the Confederate States of America, a crown of Jerusalem thorns hand-woven by the Pope’s own hands which, given their sharpness, he could not have done without drawing blood:

“A Girl Thing”

Be of good courage and let us behave ourselves manfully for our people, and for the cities of our God: and the Lord will do that which is good in his sight. (Paralipomenon 19:13) 

ArchbishopOfWestminsterHeenananatCo.jpg picture by kjk76_93

Cardinal Heenan

During the Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 1967, after seeing a demonstration of the proposed new Mass, Cardinal Heenan told the Synod: At home it is not only women and children but also fathers of families and young men who come regularly to Mass. If we were to offer them the kind of ceremony we saw yesterday in the Sistine Chapel we would soon be left with a congregation mostly of women and children”. His words of warning went unheeded.

The above is unfortunately true. The only place I have seen a large male presence in church was at the Latin Mass. Something about the Old Ritual speaks to men, whether it’s the Hierarchal/Sacerdotal nature of the ceremony, or the rigidness of the Rubrics, or whatever. The quickest, easiest way to drive men out of anyplace (church or otherwise) is overt emotionalism (holding hands, talk of love, basically anything too saccharine).  The objective nature, quietness, and use of Latin in the Old Mass  provides a “blacket” to express yourself while not feeling like a sappy extroverted buffoon. The expression is kept internal, God can see it, my neighbors should be focusing on Him.

Some Examples of Catholic Masculinity  from the “Before-Time”:

Sifting

Sifting: Some Priests are busting their butts running around trying to learn the Extraordinary Mass per the Holy Father’s recent lifting of restrictions on the Mass. And a Pastoral care for their flock who request it:

Some, not so much……:

z9.jpg picture by kjk76_91

Pastor of St. Joseph Church in Springfield, MO: “I think that Pope Benedict’s recent decree reviving the old Latin Mass was a step backwards in the implementation of the decrees of the Second Vatican Council. which were approved and promoted by Pope Paul VI”. …. “The Council clearly wanted to give such power to the bishops. But in this too the Council’s teaching is being reversed.I don’t anticipate having a Latin Mass problem in our parish”….”We should all ask ourselves questions like the following: Do we really want to introduce a liturgy emphasizing sin and its expiation in preference to the celebration of the paschal mystery centering on the death and resurrection Christ?”. 

“You know then how to discern the face of the sky: and can you not know the signs of the times? “ (Matt 16:3)

“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” (Tim 4:3)

If I hear one more time that Vat II was the council of the Laity, I’m going to puke. If it was, then it was an utter failure, Catholic Laity are as immoral, and wordly as our Secular counterparts. No, the council was a submission to the world, we capitulated. The “new air” filled our lungs, inebriated us, watered us down to nothingness.

Princess Grace receiving Holy Communion

Story: That night the little girl came back. Slipping past the guard at the priest’s house, she went inside the Church. There she made a holy hour of prayer, an act of love to make up for the act of hatred. After her holy hour she went into the sanctuary, knelt down, bent over and with her tongue received Jesus in Holy Communion, since it was not permissible at that time for laymen to touch the Sacred Host with their hands.

The little girl continued to come back each night to make her holy hour and receive Jesus in Holy Communion on her tongue. On the thirty-second night, after she had consumed the last and thirty-second host, she accidentally made a noise and woke the guard who was sleeping. He ran after her, caught her, and beat her to death with the butt of his rifle. (Story from Archbishop Sheen)

Now: Casually received by all in the paw:

756* (see appendix)

That’s right, *, that’s it. Get used to it Barry. I know I just usually put “Churchy” things on this blog, but the whole Barry Bonds thing is making me sick. The guy is a cheater, overt and boldface. We are now supposed to sit here, smile, and make-believe otherwise. The idea is that the skeptics concerning Mr. Bonds should hold their tongues for at least a lil’ while, and permit him to savour his “accomplishment”. The sad part is so many Americans were cheering him on, fully aware of the accusations of Steriod abuse leveled against him. I guess it’s the new American motto: “The Ends do indeed justify the Means”. As long as you “win” no one cares about how. Not me! From now on he is Mr. *. Also, take a look at the below pictures side by side. One was of Mr. Bonds in his early 20′s. As you can see he was quite athletic to begin with, probably due to a weight-lifting regimen. The other is of Mr. Bonds now. Notice he put on a ton of muscle in his 30′s. Question: What normal man who was already athletic puts on a large amount of muscle mass in his 30′s? Most guys who get big usually do it in their teens and 20′s, when men have naturally higher levels of Testosterone. By the time men are in the late 20′s/early 30′s the hormone levels go down to a “normal” adult level. Purely anecdotal: Notice the lower violent crime rates for men as the increase in age. Oh Barry, who you fooling?

Non Serviam

A papal decree earlier this month said priests should now meet requests by the faithful to hold mass in the traditional Church language, which had widely been dropped after the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. The cardinal said he loved the Latin language and would have no trouble celebrating Latin mass.

“But I will not do it,” he wrote. (Read Rest) (He is also a Jesuit…cough.cough…supression…oh sorry, just a cough)

To the “progressives” who keep yammering the same old tired cliches: Church going back to the bad old days, priest with back to people, nobody understands Latin bla-bla-bla.

For the Greater Glory of God, the proper respect of the Most Holy Eucharist, and Edification of his Church.. The Traditional Latin Mass has been let out of the catacombs yet again!! Let the Nay-sayers be Nay-sayed, let the liberal crypto-Protestants gnash their teeth, let accusations of “schmismatic tendencies”, or “nostalgia” be quelled, let heterodox bishops shake their fists, let the Priesthood be”re-sacralized”, let the Priest face Christ in the Tabernacle instead of having his back to Him, let “extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist” quake with fear, let “female altar boys” not get too comfortable doing what boys should be doing, let sappy modernist hymns be silenced, let the Mahony’s, Weakland’s, Kung’s and the rest of them (you know you they are) vomit in terror, let mantilla makers get busy, let talk of the Good Archbishop (Lefevbre) being vindicated start to be whispered, let Communion be recieved on the tongue, and kneeling at the altar railing in all the Catholic World. The Ancient Mass has been given room to breathe, and live. (Some degree of  hyperbole was used in above post, but I am happy). (Link1)   (Link2). All that aside, we should all pray for the placid reception by the Bishops, Priests, and people of the Univeral Church of the Holy Father’s just decision to help restore Tradition.

Iraq could only be governed by a Secular Strongman, like… what wuz him name.. oh yeah.. Saddam. Yes, he was a power-hungry maniac, but Christians were left alone under his regime, and Sunnis and Shi’ites were too scared to get out of line. Democracy is not a Universal, and it does not work for all people at all times. Enough with the political idolatry. We have unleashed hell on these people, and released the Genie of Jihad. The one thing both the Sunni’s and Shi’ites agree on: they hate Christians. Pray for the Church there. I hope the war-mongering Evangelical Zionist “christians” (heretics) reap what they have sown.
