Distress Sweeps Catholic Nut Blogs! But meanwhile, in Firenze . . .

THE ORDINARY NEWTON
empowers his official spokesman
to issue this warning

10 November 2015


Pope Francis

Today's Bolletino contains addresses which for the most part simply repeat what we have so often heard from our Holy Father about whom he likes and whom he very deeply dislikes. Franciscan hate-words such as Pelagian and Gnostic make yet another weary appearance. But there is, at one or two points, a profound and distinct anti-intellectualism, which I have not noticed before. I find this worrying. Anti-intellectualism is a stance people very often take when they propose to do something irrational.

Some people may find this extract quite funny. I resist the temptation to comment.
"May your words be simple, so that everyone can understand, rather than long homilies."

I'm still resisting hard ...

Fr. Z asks for help: houseling cloths (communion rail)

Where I help out on Sundays we are planning on adding “houseling” cloths, cloths over the Communion rail. I don't have my "houseling" Vietnamese servant boy anymore. But these cloths? Yes! Yes I do!
The Communion rail is used at the parish for all Masses.  It is wonderful how smoothly, quickly and reverently Communion time goes. And pieces of Jesus don't fall onto the people born again in Jesus by reason of their baptism but still filthy ugly human beings. Just like me.

THEIR HOPE FOR NEXT POPE

Meanwhile, seen today on TV
from Florence Italy
by the rest of us who
unlike the above trash bucket of nut-jobs
are actually happy to be Roman Catholics
came this lovely picture
after this amazing speech:

Pope urges Catholic Church to disavow conservatism and fundamentalism:

“Before the problems of the Church it is not useful to search for solutions in conservatism or fundamentalism, in the restoration of obsolete conduct and forms that no longer have the capacity of being significant culturally ...

I would like an Italian church that is unsettled, always closer to the abandoned, the forgotten, the imperfect. I desire a happy church with face of a mother who understands, accompanies, caresses.”


Jesus' Vicar understands, accompanies, caresses.
Tuesday, Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time

+ Gospel: Luke 17:7-10

Jesus said to the Apostles:
“Who among you would say to your servant
who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field,
‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’?
Would he not rather say to him,
‘Prepare something for me to eat.
Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink.
You may eat and drink when I am finished’?
Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?
So should it be with you.
When you have done all you have been commanded, say,
‘We are unprofitable servants;
we have done what we were obliged to do.’”

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

I usually try and take down their crap, but I guess I missed this one. It's difficult sometimes having an actual life to be responsible for, rather than trolling the Net night and day like they do.

  4. "The other face of the same vice is the Pelagianism of the pious. They do not want forgiveness and in general they do not want any real gift from God either. They just want to be in order. They don’t want hope they just want security. Their aim is to gain the right to salvation through a strict practice of religious exercises, through prayers and action. What they lack is humility which is essential in order to love; the humility to receive gifts not just because we deserve it or because of how we act…"

  6. As an Anglican friend of mine remarked, "I have nothing against the Tridentine Mass, I just can't stand the people who celebrate and attend it." How true, how true. These cultists utterly repel those who might sympathize with some of their views by their perpetual sniping. And at some level, they must also realize that among the many liturgical reforms they despise the Lectionary threatens their worldview most. As Fr. D's post of the day's Gospel reading points out (something not available to the "TLM" crowd) -- the words of Jesus now heard in the liturgy with far greater breadth and scope than the previous rite entailed undercut their juvenile preoccupations. All Pope Francis is doing is preaching from these texts on a daily basis. This is what truly disturbs them -- the niggling awareness that they are far from the Kingdom of God in their finery, their legalism, their self-righteousness, and their hypocrisy.

  8. Readerette here. What a hopeful statement by the Pope. I am glad I kept reading. I don't get all the in-jokes, but to me a houseling cloth is something that seems like it's been considered a waste of money for hundreds of years, much like the scruple spoon.

  13. Z is more obsessed with fabric than some of our great drag queens at Lucky Pierre's on Bourbon St. Last week it was purple (properly called liturgical violet but I digress) fabric from Gamerelli ($$$) now houseling cloths which I never understood. Isn't that why the server jabs the paten into your Adam's apple (like the servers do at our traditional parish in New Orleans named for the patron saint of Ireland on Camp St.)--to prevent the Blessed Sacrament from falling to the floor? It's as big as a dinner plate and covers a lot of territory. How hard is that?

    3. That's unfair, Hundenvick's alter took 45 minutes to lay out those vestments, do you think he has the time off from doctoral studies to get his own vestments? What was is it, if you go below a certain number of hours you are no longer a full time student and you might get drafted--No, keep those guys out of the mission(s) (of the Church), chalk it up a therapy without a license, or pastoral (flashing) counseling, rubber (please donate) smiles---how will we know what faction of the laicus can be bullshitted without these guys.

    4. It will never happen we tried it with the posts awhile back, Z will never go back to school, Roman or otherwise, plus Morlino gave him the Latin Mass Sodality job, if Morlino wanted to promote the Extraordinary Rite, he would have put someone in with cred.
      Sort of like the movie Becket, he goes on "permanent" retreat till he says "this is too easy" and goes back for the fight--sec gonadus is right.

      Delete
    5. Morlino is protecting him and obviously considers the grifter a member of his household, but they are cut from the same extra wide brocade cloth. Most of the long time pastors in Madison will not have anything to do with him, except for his buddy with the walk in confessional in Pine Bluff. They both have their heads so far up the bishop's ass when he yawns, you can see them smile.

    1. Ed Peters thinks Jesus wrote the Code Himself and ascribes to it more authority than the Gospels. Though, I do not think he has been openly critical of Pope Francis. He's just a tight ass legalist.

      Delete
    2. And a tight ass legalist with little in the way of a broad theological framework who fiercely resents Francis, just like Burke, his former employer at the Signatura, because of the Pope's relentless assaults on the Law & Order' semper idem' crowd.

      I get the impression that he does a fair bit of Brass Ass bidding and much of it out of some sort of obligation because the Lard has used Peter's son's unfortunate accident a few years ago to rouse up the Remnant into 'works of charity' on behalf of the family.
      I think Peter's will live to regret that he has joined Lacy Boy's parallel church.

  19. Totally agree that Peters legalism is wearisome and he does not sound much like a theologian and does not contextualize the code in the context of the Gospels. Still, just wonder why he opts to do Z's bidding. I wonder if Z has him on retainer or something - I just can't imagine that no episcopal leadership has expressed concern about Z and I am sure Z's defence is to go straight to canon law. Zero also dabbles in it and fancies himself as adept as handling canon law as he does with shooting. He is just SOOOOO manly with all those handguns, cigars, and drinks......yep....he is such a MAN....a real man....in fact he even reads books on how to be a man...that is how much of a MANLY man he is.....and he really needs to remind everyone and himself that men are interested in law so he should be because you know he is a MAN. Honest he really is....a real man....(how many other men do you know who go to such extents to "prove" manliness). I grew up with 6 brothers.....hung around with guys (and sorry I was a rough boy in my youth) and I actually no a sum total of "0" who go on and on the way he does...Very weird

  21. In an effort not to disappoint us, Father Z wrote offensive, politicized things in response to the awful tragedy in Paris. I replied on Twitter and added Bishop Morlino's handle.

    Another priest that I find vile and offensive is Fr. Kevin Cusick. He was an army chaplain and spews anti-Muslim and extreme fundamentalist stuff on his Twitter feed on a regular basis. He was in fine form today as well. Does anyone know where he is incardinated? Is it still as an army chaplain? I see characters like Cusick as more dangerous than blubbery things like Zed because I could see the former inspiring 19 something privates to commit war crimes.

  23. The great anal retentive, Lard Ass, thieving more second hand poetry from Long Skirts combined with theological belches by Gin & Tonic:

    "Inner participation leads to outward expression. The outward can also spark the inward. The former, however, has logical priority over the latter.

    Participation at Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form can help us recover a deeper, fuller, more conscious and proper active participation in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. It has the harder elements of deprivation which lead to that indispensable apophatic encounter with Mystery.

    This is also why our priests must always be faithful to the official texts and rubrics.

    Oh… one more thing.

    The most perfect form of active participation is the reception of Holy Communion in the state of grace."

    Thanksgiving and Advent.. it’s COFFEE time!
    Posted on 16 November 2015 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    "In these USA, Thanksgiving Day is coming up fast. After that, Advent will be upon us.
    You may have need for both hostess gifts when you are invited to people’s homes for Thanksgiving. You may have need for small gifts for office events or stocking stuffers.
    Remember… Mystic Monk Coffee.
    You could give people 5 lbs bags, of course. Everyone would be happy if you did. The Carmelites in Wyoming would be happy. They are building their monastery from this coffee. The recipients would be happy. They’d think of you with every cup. I’d be happy, knowing that you were happy … ehem… and because I get a percentage of the sale. And, having sparked all this happiness you would be happy too.

    Of course, it's all for a *good* cause: helping the Camel-Lights of Flavor Country build their Hollywood studio back lot set. No, it's not an Old West town with saloon and sheriff's office. It's a "gothic" monastery of concrete block and rusticated stone facades. If they had gone with Romanesque arches they could have opened an Olive Garden.
    They do enjoy posing for brochure photos (cowl up, naturally) on every log on the ranch. I'm not sure what else they do out there but much of their website claims they are all manfully committed to 'manual labor'.

  29. There is one constant in the tiny universe of the great sine-cure Hermaphrodite of Madison and that is his utterly pathological fixation on honorific ecclesiastical drapery. Now he's second-guessing possible checks by a commenter by describing such as 'squealing like piglets!'
    He's even more unhinged than I thought!

    "What does it mean to abolish or suppress an article of clothing?

    What is being abolished is the necessity of wearing them. They are not forbidden. In the instruction, nowhere is it stated, “Cardinals may not wear…”. It simply states that certain articles of clothing are “abolished” or sometimes “suppressed”.

    “But Father! But Father!”, some of you are squealing like piglets. “The Pope clearly wanted to get rid of all this … this… frippery! This is proof that you hate Vatican II! And you hate the poor too! And mercy!”

    Some may find this pedantic, but we must ask: What does the author of the Instruction really say about the motivation behind abolishing the obligation of wearing such things?"

  32. ISIS is described as believing in a fundamental apocalyptic religion. Fundamental in the sense that they believe they have the TRUTH and no one else has even a piece of the truth. Apocalyptic in that they believe the end of the world is coming soon and they want to hasten its coming by their actions.
    Does this sound like anyone we know? The Zero believes he has the Truth and there is no room for mercy. In his world view there is no tolerance for any other opinions. Zzzz has a disproportionate emphasis on the apocalyptic. (TEOTWAWKI, Have you been to confession today? - the world could end today, militaristic uniforms and guns.)
    It is no wonder he has such a preoccupation with ISIS. He is so like them in his religious fundamentalism. Perhaps he protests too much.
