Opening page – Dedication

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

How could a system dedicated to Lucifer become a force for social change in Catholic parishes?

It is noteworthy that, in the half-century since the Council, the post-Conciliar liturgical texts have not themselves had any apparent power to inculturate themselves into our society and to generate anything similar to what the classical texts had produced.

What Pope Francis forgot to tell you: Before exiting the confessional, make sure you’ve been properly absolved of your sins

confessionforget

“Father, I’m waiting for absolution.”

“Oh. Okay. Jesus forgives you. Go in peace.”

“Would you please give me absolution Father?”

“I just did.”

“No. I’m sorry you didn’t. Maybe I’m being a bit fussy Father, but I really would like to hear you say the words of absolution.”

“Okay, if you insist, Go in peace and be forgiven.”

“I’m sorry Father, but those weren’t the words of absolution.”

He’s annoyed with me now. “Well what do you want me to say?”

“You could say the full words from the rite, but if you want you could just say, ‘I absolve you from your sins.”

Now much annoyed he said, “I absolve you of your sins.”

Has this happened to you? I’m curious because some friends of mine say the same thing happens to them. They are given a great long piece of advice which they don’t’ really want because they have a spiritual director for that, but then the priest doesn’t give them absolution.

Editor’s note: Catholics who rarely go to confession are unlikely to even know about such sloppy practices. Even good, thorough, well-intentioned priests may get a bit “loopy” after hearing an hour or two of confessions.

Know the words of absolution and before you leave the confessional, make sure you hear the priest say them:

“I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

In Another Groundbreaking Act, Pope Francis Confesses His Sins in Public

Pope Francis continued his rock star turn yesterday by breaking with tradition and publicly confessing his sins while leading a penitential liturgy in St. Peter’s Basilica.

The pope, dressed in a simple white alb and purple stole, spent about three minutes kneeling before the priest’s open confessional and received absolution.

Editor’s note: There’s nothing “groundbreaking” about a Catholic going to Confession – especially during Lent.

Time and time again attempts were made to deprive Catholics of their historical memory, even of their language and to subject them to forced assimilation.

The six Protestant Ministers who helped design
the Novus Ordo Mass and usher in forced
Conciliar Reforms 
that the Catholic faithful never requested

Regarding the Crimea situation, Vladimir Putin recently had this (in part) to say:

Time and time again attempts were made to deprive Russians of their historical memory, even of their language and to subject them to forced assimilation.

Those who stood behind the latest events in Ukraine had a different agenda: they were preparing yet another government takeover; they wanted to seize power and would stop short of nothing. 

We can all clearly see the intentions of these ideological heirs of Bandera, Hitler’s accomplice during World War II.

Putin’s words – whatever their particular object or authorship – whether truthful or mere political rhetoric – struck a “cord” with me, regarding recent Catholic Church history and politics. Change just a few of the words and see what you get:

Time and time again attempts were made to deprive Catholics of their historical memory, even of their language and to subject them to forced assimilation. (Absolutely true, right up to the present day.)

Those who stood behind the workings of the 2nd Vatican Council had a different agenda: they were preparing to take over the Catholic Church; they wanted to seize power and would stop short of nothing. (Absolutely true, right up to the present day.)

We can all clearly see the intentions of these ideological heirs of Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Henry VIII and the other great heretics of the Protestant Reformation. (Absolutely true, right up to the present day.)

I don’t know who writes Putin’s speeches – but the stuff about “forced assimilation” applies to all kinds of long standing political and ideological grievances – including the Israel/Palestinian conflict, abortion, homosexual unions, the HHS Mandate and of course, the way the obtuse and destructive “spirit” of Vatican II continues to be forcibly inflicted on the Catholic faithful.

People resent having someone else’s “brilliant” ideas “jammed down their throats” and they also tend to have very long memories. Forty-plus years of dismal evidence testifies to wrong-headedness of the people who took over and implemented the Conciliar Reforms.

I wonder when “The Catholic Peace Talks” will officially begin?
