  1. Is the power out in that church?
    I'm Byzantine Catholic so I'm accustomed to lots of candles, and that strikes me as alot.

  2. Beards, lace, and extra special red cords! The Traddy Drag Show that will save the Church?

  3. Used Google to translate and laughed out loud!

  4. Glad to see you are back to your more elevated humor, Fr. D. Enough with the scatological references, even if your prelatial targets are pleni stercori.

  5. Father, it must be a slow news day. On the bottom ticker on the news it reads, "Vatican doesn't rule out Pope might chew cocoa leaves during Bolivia visit."

    1. A coked up pope? Now that's news. I'd like to see Pope Benny and his house boy Archbishop Gayorg after doing a couple lines. I bet the lace and brocade comes out of the closet (snicker) then for pontifical high tea.

    2. Wouldn't be the first, Pius X was a coca-wine enthusiast.

    3. I'd give it try. Why not, eh.
      Imagine Father Paul Nicholson and Mike Voris wired on coke.

  6. Father D,
    Love your blog. Glad you have pointed out this prevalent form of liturgical abuse. You'd think they'd know better....

    "In giving Benediction the celebrant holds the monstrance through the ends of the humeral veil, turns by his right to the people, and makes the sign of the cross once over them, not lifting the Host above the level of his own eyes and not moving his feet.(1) Meanwhile he neither sings nor says any words aloud. He then turns back to the altar by his right so as to complete the circle."

    (1) Cf. S.R.C. 1562. The cross is made within the limts for correctly blessing with the hand at Mass.

  7. All the Latin has finally come in handy for something. Ha ha.

  8. I told my students that inevitably one parent on parents' night would proudly declaim the aforesaid quote or the following, " ubi o ubi est meus sub ubi."

    Oh yes, "fidem scit" pronounced in that wretched ecclesiastical style was uttered by the more advanced.

    1. That "advanced style" is a fake Italian accent via Guido Sarducci--as if the ancient Romans were 19th century nationalists.

  9. In diving parlance, what degree of difficulty would this manoeuvre entail?

  10. The alb is too short. The surpluses are mismatched and look like they were pulled out of a dirty clothes hamper. The lead based painted altar is covered with a cloth from Walmart. Where is the respect? Why doesn't Fortescue lay down a few denarii? Or Fr. Z's reptile fund?

  11. Why don't we ever see a congregation of Faithful as a part of any of these liturgical grand works?

    1. Because they are not there.

    2. Another packed house, chock full, up to the rafters and out the window. They're flocking in to see the New Evangelization in action, confounding heretics and saving souls, as it should.
      Do I hear an AMEN?

      Delete
    3. Yeah, sure.... amen.

      At least in the Ben Yankinit report in the other thread on the NLBM celebation the producers were smart enough to hire extras and put them in the pews.

  12. uh oh..."semper ubi sub ubi"...the man's a flasher with assitants.
