Subconscious and innate psychological mechanisms discourage Communion in the hand
In the first weeks of a baby's life are built and defined the primary psychological mechanisms, which are the most important for the physical and emotional survival of people. From there everything else part.
Since we were babies our mind used hand to manipulate reality around us, to pick up objects, toys, food, etc.. And later for handling all instruments and money everyday, etc.
One is the defending the N.O. solely because it is "valid." There is much in the way of liturgy that is valid but nowhere near worthy of our Lord. I've never seen any other basis upon which modernists defend the N.O. that holds water.
Second, as sure as the sun rises, the liberal/modernist will in the end resort to assailing anyone who disagrees with him by impugning his honesty, integrity, even sanity. Disgraceful.
Not quite...... when we leave behind knowledge we enter the world of superstition and divination! Knowledge fuels prayer which fuels knowledge and faith. It canot be left out of the dynamic. If it is omitted, like I said, we descend into superstition and divination!
WHY O WHY PRAY TELL!!! are you chaps continuing to engage this mentally ill man [trady] on the Gloria.tv website????? The mind simply boggles at this utter display of non-intelligenciae and volleys to and fro of mentally challenged repartee!! You do this man NO favours in encouraging him in his dimentia..... CEASE AND DESIST!! For the love of God, do!!
"Invalid and Not a Sacrifice should not be on the list" (re: New Mass)
yes Rhemes, "it should Not be on the list"....but sadly it IS! Did you see the interview with Francis Cardinal Arinze when he said "Today one would have to question whether some of the New Masses is valid." And I have heard this said by numerous priests, Believe me. This is not saying all New Masses are invalid.
"I suspect someone out there will be anxious to argue that. If you choose to do that; Please …[More]
@ CatholicLiturgy - Bravo that man!! According to Dr Fortesque on the origins of the Roman rite, what we see and experience in the 1962 Mass will be recognised by all peoples in the 17th and 18th Centuries - 1570....they would recognise it with questions about the Last Gospel, the Chants AND the ceremonial. Anything before this would be regional, e.g. the Sarum Rite in the UK, Notre Dame in Paris, etc...... all with their own peculiar ceremonial and ritual.
Excellent interview. There is, however, an unfortunate error in Cardinal Burke's historical review of the Extraordinary Form. "...the rite going back to practically Pope Gregory the Great." The form of the EF used today does not go back to Pope Gregory the Great. As a matter of fact, it looks very little like the rite celebrated in the time of Gregory I. There have been multiple, and at times inorganic, developments in the form and language of the liturgy from 600AD until 1962. I wish we would … [More]
Among the atrocity of abortion, which must cry out to the ends of the earth in defense of God's innocent and defenseless children....we hope and pray that our Holy Father will Mandate that Communion be received on the tongue while kneeling only.
@Mychele you state; "now being short of helpers, insecurity resides especially in the older communicants. In this case I would not consider the practice of communion in the hand irreverent."
being short of "helpers" has nothing to do (and is an excuse …[More]
Most Reverend Eminnence, Congratulations of your enlightning interview. Please allow me to bring a point. If the practice of'' communion in the hand'' is considered to be irreverent for sacred things, I think that in the New mass, many communicants use this practice mainly because of ignorance. Therefore, it would be appreciated to be informed by the celebrant of the proper way. In the past, we used to receive the holy communion at the balustrade with an altar boy holding a paten which … [More]
exactly as cannoli states, this is diplomatic tactics. but if the bishops chose not to obey, all this diplomacy will end up nowhere - and so they have chosen. so who will put any pressure on them, if even rome refuses to do so? it is of course the same problem with the words of the consecration, but i agree that in matters concerning the protection of the unborn, the problem shows even more violently.
This was the first time I have ever heard you speak and I now have a better understanding why you were chosen to be Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome which is categorized as the highest judicial post in the Church short of the Holy Father himself. You are a scholarly man obviously grounded in Scholastic theology, diplomatic, mild mannered with a profound understanding of the current state of affairs within the Catholic Church.
Lose members? The catholic church has lost hundreds of millions of members worldwide BECAUSE of V2. The province of Quebec went from 90% catholic to 4% attendance with a very anti-catholic stance because none of them actually understand Catholic Teachings anymore.
Meanwhile The Society of St. Pius X has grown from one Archbishop and few priests to over 1 million members and continueing to grow in that same time period. They Reject V2 and Novus Ordo mass. Not only are they growing … [More]
