A very fine, and revealing, synthesis of the conciliar documents which places a lot of what we have been told by many current episcopates into serious question. They have ignored, and forbidden, much of what was promulgated (but not adequately taught to the faithful) and draconically implemented what was not.

This modern fixation on "green" burials shows as little respect for the dead as its advocates typically have for the unborn. Traditional burials reflect a near universal Western respect for the dead and their memory throughout history. This is in contrast to the modern humanist treatment of the body as if it were nothing more than a source of fertilizer.
As usual, this is a variation of the usual environmentalist's argument, "I don't think it's good for nature so YOU shouldn't do it."
Unmentioned is the fact that it will be a lot easier to force a piece of legislation to build new housing on a "former" green-cemetery than it ever will to get all those coffins, concrete liners, and headstones dug up and moved.
Instead, the same environmentalists who were praising the lasting natural beauty of such places will do what lefitsts always do: change their narratives.

The following is from Fr Z's blog.
[The contributor is an exorcist, whom I know and trust. Fr. Z]
Our bodies do not belong to us to mar according to our whims. St. Paul never tires of reminding us that we are temples of the Holy Spirit. Just as I ought not carve my initials in the wall of the Holy Sepulcher, so too, ought I not permanently mark my body. My body is not my property since I am not the author of it.
Tattoos, in their original usage, are a form of manifestation of allegiance to pagan deities. Paul tells us all that all the gods of the pagans are demons.
I have dealt with with people who thought they had innocuous tats on their bodies. When I asked one girl why the “t” in a word was an inverted Cross, she had no answer and was quite angry at the artist. She had no idea.
Sometimes tattoo artists have satanists curse the ink so that the bearer have a permanent malefice (demonic fortuna – something akin to an anti-sacramental, a physical object that bears a curse) in their body …More

Sorry for the delay.
1. Following your link Rituale Romanum, I only found an English translation. Roman Ritual. I read the text, even though I distrust translations.
Further, that is not the latest Rituale Romanum. I don't have access to the newest version, so I don't know what it says.
2. The text referred to by you, however, cites the Council of Trent. And that reminds me of a bigger problem. Trent says there are seven grades of Orders, but Ministeria Quaedam (Paul VI) says there are only three (Diaconal, Presbyteral, and Episcopal). Subdiaconate is de facto suppressed, and the Minor Orders are gone, replaced by Lay Ministries.
O tempora! O mores!
3. I have known Fr Zuhlsdorf well for almost thirty years, and I trust his judgment of the priest/exorcist. I will say, however, that I have known many really good priests and theologians who want no part of exorcisms. My impression has been that there is so much opposition to their ordinary duties, they're loathe to take on
BTW, the late …More

According to the same Rituale Romanum this "exorcist" is citing, he himself is anathema.
"When I decommission tattoos, I use the formula from the Roman Ritual for "Reconciliation of a Profaned Church", altering the words where appropriate."
It is NOT "appropriate" to alter the words or the purpose of a rite in the Catholic Church.
This "exorcist" should read his Rituale Romanum a little more closely. :
---
PART I. GENERAL RULES FOR ADMINISTERING THE SACRAMENTS
2. "If anyone says that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or arbitrarily omitted by the ministers without sin, or be changed into other new ones at the option of any pastor of the churches: let him be anathema."
The "formula" this "exorcist" uses is part of the RITE For Reconciling A Profaned Church. A rite for reconciling a structure is not a rite for "decommisioning tattoos". There is no such rite. The Rituale Romanum …More

A few months ago I was driving through Minnesota and Wisconsin. Around 20,000 years ago the ice there was from one to two miles thick, reaching about 10,000 ft into the sky. What caused that ice to melt? There were no coal-fired plants. Nor were there automobiles with internal combustion engines.

Every subversion need an ignition. This one is the final that devil has invented. And now four riders of Apocalypse are riding. Only those who redirect faith from power of money (man as a god who create things with the power of money) to 100% faith in God's Creating Power of Love, will survive the end of this world.

The county and the town were named for a Colonel Mason Maycomb, a man whose misplaced self-confidence and overweening willfulness brought confusion and confoundment to all who rode with him in the Creek Indian Wars.
The text comes from a novel I am reading. Immediately, I was struck how it seems to pertain to a certain resident of the Vatican.

Top advisers to Pope Francis said on Monday that the Vatican is preparing an official response to accusations that the pope helped cover up an American cardinal’s sexual misconduct.
The statement from the “C-9,” the nine cardinals who advise Francis on Church matters, came on the first day of a three-day meeting with the pope, one of several throughout the year.
The Holy See’s planned response will address accusations by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò — former Vatican ambassador to the United States — that Pope Francis covered up sexual abuse by now-disgraced former cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
Viganò roiled the Church with his bombshell statement last month that he’d warned Francis in 2013 about McCarrick, a former archbishop of Washington, D.C., who had for years been dogged by rumors of sexual abuse of both minors and seminarians. More than two dozen other current and former Vatican officials also covered up for McCarrick, Viganò …More

Obviously,it is a vendetta by Vigano' because he was fired . . . blah blah blah . . . Conspiracy by those opposing reform . . . blah blah blah . . . McQueerick is no longer a Cardinal and is awaiting trial . . . blah blah blah . . .
It must be kept in mind that the head of the C-9 is the corrupt Maradiaga, a nobody from nowhere, who wants to save his own arse.

This morning after mass a lady from Wichita and I were talking about Fr Reinkemeyer--she said he was her all time favorite priest. Maybe mine too. Fr R was a character. Drove a motorcycle all winter. Slept on the floor. Was given the poorest parish in Wichita, and so he had a 7:00pm Sunday mass that attracted people with some money. His homilies were usually sprinkled with quotes from the Fathers. The Church needed a new roof, and he put on a new one. Very funny, with direct, sometimes salty language.

1. First, note that the question is not whether there is anyone in hell. It is de fide that certain angels are there. Traditionally, the text from John's Apocalypse (12:4--its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky) has been interpreted as referring to the angels who became demons.
2. It is certain from Scripture that Christ refers to humans being there. And the tradition among the Fathers is that Judas the traitor is there.
3. The point that Pope Francis was making is: 1) God wants the salvation of all men (de fide, and 2) Anyone who goes to hell goes because he wants to go there, being fooled by the wiles of demons.

Unfortunately, there are critics who confuse their own zealous emotionalism with any of St Augustine's three wisdoms and look for the splinter in the eye of of others. They have very little to offer except their own vitriol.

"I came to the Greeks early," Hamilton told an interviewer when she was 91, "and I found answers in them. Greece's great men let all their acts turn on the immortality of the soul. We don't really act as if we believed in the soul's immortality and that's why we are where we are today."
For those unfamiliar with Edith Hamilton;
She began learning Latin and Greek when she was seven years old and as an adult could read them as if they were English. Later, she studied in Germany but leaving before finishing her doctorate, she returned to the US and helped found the Bryn Mawr School for girls in Baltimore, where she was headmistress until her retirement in 1922. She then began writing books: The Greek Way, The Roman Way, The Echo of Greece, and Mythology are all well known to American classicists.
She was made an honorary citizen of Athens in 1957 and died six years later at the age of 91.
