What Earlier Generations Held as Sacred, Remains Sacred and Great For Us Too

We thank our old buddies at the Chant Café (even the young buddies over there are old) for reminding us of something Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI wrote when he de-abrogated the abrogated Mass:

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church's faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place." (Benedict XVI, Cover Letter, Summorum Pontificum)

Exactly how we feel:

But we just wanted to note an important technical point that is, understandably, hard to remember when the cloistered Emeritus is talking almost as much as very un-cloistered Cardinal Burke:




  1. Cardinal Burzurk describes the Church as a ship without a helm... What a turd to say this. Doesn't the Pope have authority to just expel this douche-nozzle?

    1. All I could think of when reading that article was the song:
      "Rock the boat (don't rock the boat, baby), rock the boat (don't tip the boat over), rock the boo-oat!

      While saying "don't rock the boat," he's doing just that.

    2. And while I you-tubed the song, a suggestion next to it was "The Hustle". Hiw appropriate.

    GERMANY: Where the weird stuff comes from

    Posted on 1 November 2014 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    Why is it that truly weird stuff comes into the Church from Germany?

    I think it may be because of a) the Church Tax and b) that Rahner won in German speaking countries.

  3. Bunch of faggots dont know to keep your mouths shut becasue nobody cares what you have to say really. All you are doing is adding fuel to the flames that are going to burn you for picking on a good real priest like Father Z. And how dare you pick on the late most holy father Pope Benedict XVI? That is going to keep you in the fire of purgatory for another five hundred years. Your going to be a burnt toasted faggot if you ever get out.

    1. Benedict is emeritus, not late. Late usually means deceased, you know Benedict is not deceased, right?

      Purgatory for another 500 years, now there's a threat.

    2. Hi there.
      How are you this fine day?
      Feast of All Saints, not matter which Western Usage you are attached to. I am going to guess you're (you are) attached to the Extraordinary Form (aka TLM, Mass Of All Ages, One True Mass, etc.) Am I close?
      Are you from England by any chance? Father D has a fan of sorts from that side of the pond who is attached to the use of the word "faggot."

      I'm not sure where I (or any of the readers here) have picked on the Pope Emeritus (rather than "late" as you referred to him) Benedict XVI. I'm rather fond of B-16. I think His Holiness Emeritus provided some much needed focus on solid academics in theological and patristic matters through his Wednesday audiences. He also called the Church to be mindful and respectful of liturgical traditions. Too many have taken that mindfulness above and beyond and have begun to worship the rite and ritual itself, rather than using the rite and ritual to worship God.

      I do pick on Father Z. I think he asks me to do it. I think he likes it in a way. Much like a musical artist likes to get the parody treatment by Weird Al Yankovic. Yes, I go overboard at times. I'm human with faults and I struggle to overcome them.

      As for calling me (and my readers??) faggots, I have to admit I'm not really sure what you're (you are) meaning to say. Cigarette? Bundle of sticks? Burnable material? Homosexual? Care to clarify?

      If you mean homosexual, then you're (you are) barking up the wrong tree. Sexual orientation is not an issue here, for anyone. I don't care if you're (you are) a homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual, as long as you're (you are) not a hypocrite. (Like calling other people faggots after returning from a night the gay bar unable to pick someone up for the night.)

      Say what you mean, mean what you say and don't say it mean. (Please.)

    3. If you are from the UK then go see the devout Fr Ray Blake. He'll help you through with some advice on anger management for the hate stuff. He'll also help you to make distinctions between adherence to genuine Faith and clinging to the decaying corpse of an ideology.

      Your delusional auto-erotic mentor Mundabor will be of no assistance in the healing and recovery domains. The unfortunate fellow is a very damaged person and has been since that kick in the head by a pigeon in early childhood. Caligula had the same misfortune and was never the same after that.

  4. If your a real priest it is because of priests like you that the church is in the mess that it is with all the pervert faggot priests raping boys and ass humping each other inbetween. I am reporting this entire blog to and the police as a disgusting child rape promoting blog and will see how long you can continue to write your faggot logging child raping blogposts.

    1. Don't waste your time reporting "faggot logging" to the police? The 1st Amendment covers my lumberjack beefcake calendar.

    2. That's a pre-Vatican II SSPX Lumberjack Beefcake Calendar right Jack?

    3. Anonymous 9:15 PM, I am a real priest. At least my mama and bishop tell me so.
      The rest of your rant is not worthy of a further reply. Says more about you than me, or anyone here I'm afraid.
      Please! Report any material here that you find that promotes the harm of children in any way.

  5. Since I'm writing this on Nov. 2 maybe we should sing the Dies Irae to him.
