Greek-Orthodox Archpriest: Don’t Touch Traditional Latin Mass!
AldoMariaValli.
it published an interview with Vasilios Koutsourás who is presented as a Greek-orthodox archpriest. Koutsourás is telling the Catholics to preserve the ancient Roman Liturgy. He explains that this is one of the oldest rites of the universal Church. The Roman Canon, which is virtually never used in the New Rite, is likely of apostolic origin.
According to Koutsourás, the ecumenical dialogue between the Church and the Orthodox should be based on the ancient dogmatic, patristic and liturgical texts, especially those of the first millennium, the time before the split. Quote, “In these texts, one can find the foundations for a path towards Christian unity and for a spirit of mutual respect.” Therefore, Koutsourás says, the Roman liturgy and its revaluation by the Pope is necessary on the path of dialogue, both because of the sacredness it exudes and because of its antiquity.

The Catholic Liberal Was NOT Welcome Among the Normal Liberals
Anna Keating
, a liberal and a feminist, used to be a Coordinator of Catholic Life at a small liberal arts school which was founded by Congregationalists but had become entirely secularised. After a while, she understood that she had to quit her workplace because – quote – “the atmosphere had become so toxic that it was affecting my well-being.” Keating knew that her position would not be refilled. Why? Because progressivism that has suffused the atmosphere of elite schools does not welcome religious students, and makes it difficult for students to engage with religion in any way, she wrote on HedgehogReview.com.
Being a liberal, feminist and product of an elite university, Keating didn’t see her presence on campus as a Catholic campus minister as controversial or political, when she took the job. She thought that she would fit in well culturally at a progressive institution and was committed to helping students explore …More

Axed Motu Proprio: Fears and Hopes
Rorate-caeli.blogspot.com has a risk assessment on the impending withdrawal of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum with which Benedict XVI liberated the Roman Rite in 2007. The essential point: priests belonging to Roman Rite communities and diocesan priests who already celebrate the Roman Rite may continue to do so. Other diocesan priests may only begin with the celebration after having been granted a special permission of their bishop. Roman Rite communities are no longer under the jurisdiction of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, but of the Congregation for the Liturgy which is staffed with hardened enemies of the Roman Rite: Prefect Roche, Secretary Viola and Undersecretary García Macías.

So what? They are fine with government advocating abortion but not with monarchy.

Revolutionary: Study About Covid-19 in the Church
Russian-born biologist Sergey Budaev of Bergen University, Norway, reviewed countless studies on covid spread in churches and at liturgies. His article appeared in the Journal of Religion and Health on 24 May. Budaev largely follows the mainstream, talking of a pandemic, against which masks, government coercion, vaccination, masks in church, cordoned-off church pews and no singing help.
Many Novus Ordo Features Are Dangerous
Budaev also comes to conclusions which question many measures implemented in the church. For example: Because of sanitary distancing, it is advisable to avoid concelebration. The kiss of peace should be omitted. Lay people should not distribute communion as they have less practice in doing so. In chapels, Budaev advises celebrating towards the Lord so that the priest is less exposed to the aerosols of the faithful. Budaev finds plastic gloves unnecessary. Because of the consecrated host alone, the priest …More

Old Rite Priests Warns: Its Again Five to Twelve
Rumours of an impending abolition or amendment of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum are to be taken seriously, Father Glen Tattersall, a diocesan priest of Melbourne, Australia, wrote in a statement on Saturday. Tattersall heads an Old Rite parish in Melbourne, the Newman Parish. He was the founder of the Australian Ecclesia Dei Society and organised an Old Rite Pontifical Mass in Melbourne Cathedral in 1992 which was celebrated by then Auxiliary Bishop George Pell. This was the first Old Rite Pontifical Mass in the Cathedral after more than 20 years of Novus Ordo. More than 1000 faithful attended.
Don’t Ignore the Signs
Tattersall is not surprised by the impending attack on Summorum Pontificum. He stresses that there have been several indications in this direction, namely: the abolition of the Ecclesia Dei commission, the strange 2020 worldwide survey on the Old Mass, the ban on private Masses in St Peter's, the banishment of the …More

Why There Will Never Be a Modernist Schism
For most of this pontificate, Francis has been the most turbulent figure in Roman Catholicism, Ross Douthat wrote in the New York Times. He has dropped rhetorical bombshells, made unexpected gestures and appointments and used his power and influence to reopen old debates. But over the past two years, the sources of Catholic turbulence have shifted. Now, the centrifugal forces Francis has set in motion are pulling at the Church.
For Douthat the latest and starkest example happened in Germany with the recent homosex “blessings” which challenged the Vatican. He notices that the debates driving this confrontation are the kind of arguments that Francis seemed intent on opening up when he called for – quotation mark – “more debate” within the Church. Thus, the German bishops seemed to be working in a tacit partnership with Francis. Douthat explains that their push for maximalist change created space for Francis to go partway with the liberalizers, …More

Lao Tse’s Teaching About the Papacy
Francis knows that he is a usurper and reveals it by unmistakable signs, the prominent Italian journalist Maurizio Blondet writes. The first sign is that Francis doesn’t dare to sleep in the apartment where – quote – “the legitimate Popes lived” but exercises his despotism from a hotel, the Domus Santa Marta. That Francis shuns the papal residence where the presences of Pius IX, Leo XIII, Saint Pius X, Pius XII, Karol Woytyla is hovering, is for Blondet symbolic. He asks whether Francis cannot stand certain shadows that in the silence and solitude of the night could visit him. A second, even more revealing sign for Blondet is Francis’ angry and spiteful suppression of the Masses in Saint Peter’s.
Because the moderns have no understanding anymore for Holy Writ, Blondet refers to Tao Te Ching, a fundamental text of Taoism to explain the eternal truth contained in the papacy. Tao Te Ching says that during the Golden times, the people barely perceived …More

Old-Rite Catholic Jean Raspail’s Prophecy Becomes Reality
The great Paul Craig Roberts, a former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal and Republican, refers in his newest article to the famous French novel The Camp of the Saints written by the Old-Rite-Catholic Jean Raspail in 1973. It depicts the destruction of Western civilisation through mass immigration driven by leftwing and anarchist compassion, and the persecution of the the few warning voices. The process ends in genocide. The novel returned to the bestseller list in 2011.
Roberts notices that the process of self-destruction of American Culture has advanced beyond Raspail’s predictions. Quote, “The Democrats, the media, the woke ‘intellectuals', the universities, and the public schools are hard at work preparing our doom.” The blue states believe in white guilt, critical race theory, systemic racism, identity politics, and that all products of Western civilisation, even mathematics, are presented as symbols and devices …More

South Africa born Jani Allan

Yiannopoulos sees the clinic as the great moral duty of the next decade of his life.
Yiannopoulos, outraged his detractors by going to Hawaii to cast into the ocean what he calls the “Sodomy Stone” – a four-carat diamond worth $150,000 which he bought as an engagement ring for his homosex pseudo-marriage. In a video, Yiannopoulos is seen on a chartered boat holding a Cartier jewelry box.

The Bishops Will Not Sanction the U.S. Election Thief
The American bishops
will not enforce canon law against election thief and abortion militant Joe Biden, George Neumayr predicts in The Spectator. The U.S. bishops lack the will to withhold Communion from Biden, even though Canon 915 “obliges the minister of Holy Communion to refuse the Sacrament” to those in “manifest grave sin.” Neumayr asks, “If Biden’s direct facilitation of the killing of unborn children doesn’t fall into that category, what does?”
Neumayr observes that the Vatican II Church has bred many of her own destroyers. He calls Biden an anti-Catholic “Catholic” who persecutes his own Church. The bishops could have crushed this serpent in its shell, but because of their laxity and heterodoxy they declined to do so. Biden is for Neumayr the product of the bishops’ passivity, the culmination of a secularized Catholicism that the bishops permitted to spread for decades.

Dogmatic Council of Trent No one conscious of mortal sin should approach the Holy Eucharist, however contrite he may seem to himself
Now ecclesiastical usage declares that this examination is necessary, that no one conscious of mortal sin, however contrite he may seem to himself, should approach the Holy Eucharist without a previous sacramental confession. This, the holy Synod has decreed, is always to be observed by all Christians, even by those priests on whom by their office it may be incumbent to celebrate, provided the recourses of a confessor be not lacking to them. But if in an urgent necessity a priest should celebrate without previous confession, let him confess as soon as possible [see n. 1138 ff.]. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1647. Council of Trent, Session XIII, October 11, 1551)More

The Oldest Group of Sedevacantists in the U.S.
Daniel Hamiche
presented on Lettre de Paix liturgique the sedevacantists and the independent chapels in the United States. Sedevacantists believe that since Pius XII there is no valid pope anymore. The oldest sedevacantist organisation in the United States is the Congregation of Mary, Queen Immaculate.
This group was founded in 1968 in Idaho by Francis Schuckardt, a layman. He surrounded himself with some Jesuits and diocesan priests. In 1971 Sedevacantist Bishop Daniel Brown convinced Schuckardt to become a priest and a bishop, and Schuckardt agreed. Brown was consecrated a bishop by the Old Catholics but quickly separated from them. Only ten years after Schuckardt’s ordinations, he found himself in charge of 120 nuns, 6 priests, 61 clerics and brothers, a school from kindergarten to senior high school, and several hospices.
In 1984 there was a split in the Congregation of Mary, Queen Immaculate, when Father Denis Chicoine, Schuckardt’…More

No sect (CMRI) is part of the Mystical Body of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Those who reject His unique Church, oppose the Divine Son of God and His work. The successors of the Apostle Peter are the obvious and visible sign chosen by God. One of the upsides is the easier differentiation between the Church of God and the churches founded by men, whatever are their intentions.
Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) who is now a blessed spirit in Heaven, is a real Roman Pontiff and successor of the Apostle Peter. If it were not the case, two events would have occurred during his lifetime:
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE GIFT OF PROPHECY At least one person would have announced that God, the Virgin Mary or another heavenly spirit revealed to him that John XXIII is an antipope. This prophet would have had a minimum of visibility at the universal level as well as acceptance by some catholic faithfuls and some priests.

None had a greater impact on the monastic way of life and its commitment to expand the culture of the nation than St. Benedict of Norcia.

Happy Catholic Youth: “We Feared the Sisters”
I wish more of today’s children
could experience the memorable upbringing I enjoyed growing up in a Catholic family, the American columnist Tom Purcell wrote on Omaha World-Herald. Growing up Catholic in the 1970s meant going to a Catholic school. It was not like in today’s schools, in which some teachers fear their students. Quote, “We students of St. Germaine Catholic School feared the sisters.”
The sisters ran their classrooms in a structured, orderly manner. They took guff from no kid. The floors were so clean, you could eat off of them. The blackboards had a brighter sheen than a Cadillac fender, Purcell remembers, “Our desks, which were subject to frequent and unannounced inspections, were expected to be organized at all times.”
Purcell stresses that “our precious egos, fragile feelings and self-esteem were not part of the Church’s teaching plan.” He explains: “Either we got with the sisters’ program or we got into big trouble.” …More

For the first time in history
, the Church has been hijacked by Leftists, the Los Angeles Attorney Derek Dobalian writes on lewrockwell.com. He admits that the Left has had influence on the Church before, but now they approach a total takeover. The reason why this is happening, is for Dobalian because current Church leaders are intellectually weak.
Dobalian explains that the Left already controls every major institution in America. The last and strongest to be conquered was the Church. The Church’s leaders were all too ready to oblige. The leftwing take over of the Church represents a total corruption of the Bible and the morality it teaches. It is dangerous for American liberty because it adds “Thus saith the Lord” to all of the Left’s commands.
The common denominator in left-wing Christianity’s policies is for Dobalian “more government control.” Thus, the Left uses Christianity as a tool for tyranny. The Left has bullied Christian leaders …More

How Tough Was Your Lent?
The Lenten fast for Catholics living in the third millennium means little to nothing. Perhaps they swap out the lunchtime burger for a Filet-o-Fish, and attend the Stations of the Cross sporadically. This was very different up to the time of the so-called reforms in the 1960s. Today, only the Eastern Christian churches practice austerity during Lent. Meat, fish, dairy, and oil are generally prohibited for them during the Lenten season.
The rules for Lenten penance which St. Thomas Aquinas describes show that the Church was no different. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday were “black fasts.” This means no food at all. On the other days of Lent: no food until 3pm, the hour of Our Lord’s death. Water was allowed, or due to sanitary concerns, watered-down beer and wine. After the coming of tea and coffee, these beverages were permitted. No animal meats or fats were allowed. No eggs. No dairy products – that is, eggs, milk, cheese, cream, butter, etc. Sundays were …More

Obviously, in the 13th century no one boarded an airplane on Sunday to work 1000 miles away, then return on Friday. Physicians weren't called at 2:30am for an emergency, then needed to be in the office for appointments at 8:00am.
Holy Cannoli
Soldiers (in this case an Italian 😉 ) periodically fast throughout the year in order to discipline mind and body.

Why the Oligarchs Fear Christianity
Andrew Torba, the courageous founder of the social networking platform Gab.com wrote in February an article with the title “Why the Oligarchs Fear Christianity.” The oligarchs have been persecuting Gab for allowing free speech, and not submitting to their censorship. In February, Gab.com was banned from three different banks. One bank told Gab they are terminating their account because – quote - “the media has written bad things about your business.”
The Psychpathic Oligarchs in the American Regime
Gab is the test case for the oligarchs, Torba explains. They will soon start attacking churches and Christian organizations in the same way that Gab has been persecuted for nearly five years. He stresses that the – quote – “psychopathic oligarchs in the American regime” picked this fight because Gab has chosen humanity, freedom, order, and Jesus. On the contrary, the oligarchs bet on “their drag queen story hours, 87 genders, degeneracy, moral depravity, …More

"their drag queen story hours, 87 genders..."
I can still remember when there were only 57. pic related. :D
"They will soon start attacking churches and Christian organizations in the same way that Gab has been persecuted for nearly five years."
Unlike Gab, Churches (and synagogues and mosques) 1.) aren't social media platforms 2.) conduct most of their business in the physical world 3.) have (in the US at least) protection in the Bill Of Rights 4.) belong to major world religions, numbering in the billions, not fifty people in a small company.
"or - with a racist undertone. 'white Christian nationalism.' "
It isn't a "smear" to say some Christians, even some Catholics, are fanatically racist and like most idiots (including those on the left), they try to create "converts." (INB4 this gets proven true right here with reams of fail by the usual local culprit)

American Catholics: Stop Worshipping the Unholy Trinity
Laurence M Vance warned on LewRockwell.com that many conservative Christians in the US worship not only the Holy Trinity but also the unholy trinity. According to Vance, the first part of the unholy trinity is the military. Many churches pray for the military and call soldiers returning from overseas heroes. But Vance points out that the U. S. military is an unholy institution and a force for evil in the world. It fights unjust wars. It boldly goes where it has no business going. It bombs countries that pose no threat to the US and carries out a belligerent U.S. foreign policy.
The Second Person of the Unholy Trinity
Police is for Vance the second unholy institution. He admits that police have taken some undeserved beatings during the past few years. However, the militarization of the police and the rise of the warrior cop overshadow any injustices that individual policemen may have suffered. Vance accuses police of operating …More

Mr. Vance is a classic "independent" who's built a political philosophy around his own ignorance. Every enemy of the U.S. sees this country's military as "a force for evil" because their sympathies lie elsewhere.
The same is true for those who see law-enforcement mainly as villains . Their sympathies lie elsewhere as well, invariably in favor of a hazy notion of "libertarian freedumb." In practice what they truly seek is nothing more than anarchy and ruin.
"Unjust wars"? The last two wars America fought were directed against Germany's attempts to take over Europe. Maybe Mr. Vance feels they were "unjust", but Europe today owes its existence to America's willingness to defend its freedom.
"It boldly goes where it has no business going. "It bombs countries that pose no threat to the US."
...as determined by Mr. Vance, yes? Mr. Vance and isolationists like him are the reason those "unjust wars" of the 20th century were fought in the first place. He's the sort of person who refuses …More
