Tylor Marshall Paid Tschugguel’s Flight To Eliminate Pachamamas

Why? How? Marshall paid for a couple of plane tickets. Where's the scandal?

Cross Crumbles - Coronavirus Continues

No mozetta. No stole. No vestments of any kind. Just his usual sleazy, see-through white cassock.

Cross Crumbles - Coronavirus Continues

I saw a photo today of JPII's funeral. The same crucifix was standing by his coffin. Outdoors in St. Peter's Square--but the weather was bright and cloudless.

Cross Crumbles - Coronavirus Continues

A malicious act by the anti-pope. Ann Barnhardt was dead-on: the Abomination of Desolation. A public act by a destroyer, exulting in his destruction. The vandalism against the crucifix must have been especially delicious for him. A totally un-Catholic "ceremony." Reading the tweets from Bergoglio's groupies--totally gaga--is pretty disheartening..

Paul_D: Nothing I have said contradicts the prayer in the Mass that you pasted here. The prayer does not assert that the Blessed Sacrament kills bacteria or viruses--or that this magical power is extended to church buildings!

Novella Nurney:

Read St. Thomas Aquinas on the Eucharist. Easy to find in the Summa Theologiae.

It is heretical to hold that, at the consecration of the Mass, there is some PHYSICAL change in the bread and wine. Transubstantiation is NOT a physical event. It is a metaphysical event. The substance of the bread and wine are changed into the substance of the Body and Blood of the Lord.

There is absolutely no physical change to the (former) bread and wine, which is why there is absolutely no change in how they appear to our senses. They also do NOT suddenly have germ-killing properties.

Saint Thomas deals with the question: "Is a Eucharistic Miracle the Sacrament of the Eucharist?" His answer is NO, because the moment the accidents of bread and wine cease to exist, the Sacrament ceases to exist.

Eucharistic miracles ARE NOT THE EUCHARIST. The moment that a Host starts to LOOK like flesh, it ceases to be the Sacrament. A Eucharist miracle provides evidence for the truth of the Faith, but it is not the Eucharist any longer.

I am shocked that any adult Catholic would hold this sort of childish, superstitious belief. The same goes for those who hold the heretical belief that the Sscred Species have germ-killing properties. The Sacred Species have exsctly the ssme physical properties as bread and wine.

Coronavirus: Protection against Christ?

Wearing rubber gloves is stupid because it is unnecessary. First of all, to whom is he giving Communion? However: The Church condemned Eucharistic Hyper-realism about 800 years ago. There is NOTHING in the Church's authentic teaching about the Real Presence that suggests that pathogens die on contact with the Sacred Species.

Francis Uses Left Hand For Making Sign Of The Cross

That's weird. (That website, I mean.) I'm talking about the "epicletic gesture," which occurs at the words "Hanc igitur oblationem..."

Francis Uses Left Hand For Making Sign Of The Cross

He does not make the epicletic gesture at Mass. It is required for validity.

Geneva: No Holy Week, No Easter – All Masses Suppressed

Holy Cannoli: I have been shocked to see how many Catholics believe that the Sacred Species kill all microbes. I think the hysteria about Mass cancellations may be coming from people who believe that frequent reception of Communion will kill the virus, and that they are being denied this remedy. I think the decision to cancel public Masses is the right decision. People should not be gathering …More
Holy Cannoli: I have been shocked to see how many Catholics believe that the Sacred Species kill all microbes. I think the hysteria about Mass cancellations may be coming from people who believe that frequent reception of Communion will kill the virus, and that they are being denied this remedy. I think the decision to cancel public Masses is the right decision. People should not be gathering ANYWHERE for ANY REASON.

I think many pious Catholics are reasoning backwards: Their first premise is: "Nothing can justify cancelling Masses." They conclude that the coronavirus is a hoax.

Geneva: No Holy Week, No Easter – All Masses Suppressed

I always push the Host off my index finger with my thumb, dropping it on the tongue. By time the Host is touching the tongue, it is not touching my fingers. People should close their eyes so they can't try to "help" the priest by "licking" the Host out of his fingers. People generally stick their tongues out too far and don't open their mouths wide enough. And they don't put their heads back far …More
