By | September 11, 2019


>>A READING FROM THE FIRST LETTER OF ST. PAUL TO THE COLOSSIANS. BROTHERS AND SISTERS, CHRIST JESUS IS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, THE FIRSTBORN OF ALL CREATION. FOR IN HIM WERE CREATED ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH, THE VISIBLE AND THE INVISIBLE, WHETHER THRONES OR DOMINIONS OR PRINCIPALITIES OR POWERS, ALL THINGS WERE CREATED THROUGH HIM AND FOR HIM. HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND IN HIM ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER. HE IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, THE CHURCH. HE IS THE BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD, THAT IN ALL THINGS HE HIMSELF MIGHT BE PREEMINENT. FOR IN HIM ALL THE FULLNESS WAS PLEASED TO DWELL, AND THROUGH HIM TO RECONCILE ALL THINGS FOR HIM, MAKING PEACE BY THE BLOOD OF HIS CROSS THROUGH HIM, WHETHER THOSE ON EARTH OR THOSE IN HEAVEN. THE WORD OF THE LORD.>>THANKS BE TO GOD.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>SING JOYFULLY TO THE LORD, ALL YOU LANDS, SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS. COME BEFORE HIM WITH JOYFUL SONG.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>KNOW THAT THE LORD IS GOD. HE MADE US, HIS WE ARE, HIS PEOPLE, THE FLOCK HE TENDS.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>ENTER HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING, HIS COURTS WITH PRAISE. GIVE THANKS TO HIM, BLESS HIS NAME.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>FOR HE IS GOOD, THE LORD, WHOSE KINDNESS ENDURES FOREVER, AND HIS FAITHFULNESS, TO ALL GENERATIONS.>>COME WITH JOY INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.>>♪ ALLELUIA ALLELUIA ALLELUIA>>♪ ALLELUIA ALLELUIA ALLELUIA>>♪ I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, SAYS THE LORD ♪ ♪ WHOEVER FOLLOWS ME WILL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE ♪>>♪ ALLELUIA ALLELUIA ALLELUIA>>FATHER: ♪ DOMINUS VOBISCUM ♪>>♪ ET CUM SPIRITU TUO ♪>>FATHER: ♪ LECTIO SANCTI EVANGELII SECUNDUM LUCAM ♪>>♪ GLORIA TIBI, DOMINE ♪>>FATHER: THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES SAID TO JESUS, THE DISCIPLES OF JOHN THE BAPTIST FAST OFTEN AND OFFER PRAYERS, AND THE DISCIPLES OF THE PHARISEES DO THE SAME, BUT YOURS EAT AND DRINK. JESUS ANSWERED THEM, “CAN YOU MAKE THE WEDDING GUESTS FAST WHILE THE BRIDEGROOM IS WITH THEM? BUT THE DAYS WILL COME, AND WHEN THE BRIDEGROOM IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM, THEN THEY WILL FAST IN THOSE DAYS.” AND HE ALSO TOLD THEM A PARABLE. “NO ONE TEARS A PIECE FROM A NEW CLOAK TO PATCH AN OLD ONE. OTHERWISE, HE WILL TEAR THE NEW AND THE PIECE FROM IT WILL NOT MATCH THE OLD CLOAK. LIKEWISE, NO ONE POURS NEW WINE INTO OLD WINESKINS. OTHERWISE, THE NEW WINE WILL BURST THE SKINS, AND IT WILL BE SPILLED, AND THE SKINS WILL BE RUINED. RATHER, NEW WINE MUST BE POURED INTO FRESH WINESKINS. AND NO ONE WHO HAS BEEN DRINKING OLD WINE DESIRES NEW, FOR HE SAYS, ‘THE OLD IS GOOD.'” ♪ VERBUM DOMINI ♪>>♪ LAUS TIBI, CHRISTE ♪>>Father: AS FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, THERE ARE TIMES WHERE WE FEAST, AND WHERE WE FAST DURING THE LITURGICAL SEASONS OF THE YEAR. DURING LENT, ADVENT, AND MANY OTHER TIMES DURING THE YEAR, EVEN FRIDAYS. FRIDAYS ARE CONSIDERED A PENITENTIAL DAY IN THE CHURCH STILL. EVEN THOUGH IT’S NOT REQUIRED TO FAST FROM MEAT, THE CHURCH STILL HIGHLY ENCOURAGES THOSE OF THE FAITHFUL TO ABSTAIN FROM MEAT. AND IF THOSE DO NOT ABSTAIN FROM MEAT, IT’S ALWAYS DEFINITELY ENCOURAGED TO DO SOME TYPE OF PENANCE ON A FRIDAY. THIS IS HOW WE GO ABOUT ENTERING INTO PRAYER AND MORTIFICATION TO GROW IN THE LIFE OF VIRTUE AS FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST. MANY TIMES NOWADAYS, WE HEAR ALL THESE NEW FADS COMING OUT ABOUT FASTING. HOW FASTING IS A GOOD THING AND HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE DOING FASTING FOR MANY DIFFERENT PURPOSES, TO LOSE WEIGHT AND FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND THE LIST CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON. BUT IF THERE IS NOT A SPIRITUAL COMPONENT TO FASTING, REALLY FASTING DOESN’T REACH ITS PURPOSE IN OUR LIFE, AS CHRISTIANS. WE REJOICE IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST BUT AGAIN, AT THE SAME TIME, WE MUST ENTER INTO PERIODS OF FASTING. AND DEFINITELY, WE MUST MOURN FOR OUR SINFULNESS. SO, IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE, THERE’S THIS, AT THE SAME TIME, REJOICING AND MOURNING. AND ONLY IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE CAN THOSE THINGS HAPPEN. ONLY IN CHRISTIANITY, CAN REJOICING AND TRUE CONTRITION FOR OUR SINS FIND A HARMONY. FASTING AND REJOICING ARE PART OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. THE MESSAGE FROM TODAY’S GOSPEL IS A WARNING FROM THE LORD NOT TO HAVE A CLOSED MIND TO LEARNING NEW THINGS. THE LORD ALWAYS WANTS TO TEACH US NEW THINGS. THE LORD WANTS TO, FIRST OF ALL, HE WANTS US TO PUT AN END TO THOSE THINGS IN OUR LIVES WHICH SEPARATE US FROM HIM. HE WANTS TO ROOT UP IN OUR LIVES THOSE THINGS THAT PREVENT US FROM SEEING HIM, FROM GIVING HIM DUE WORSHIP AND PRAISE. IN THE GOSPEL, SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST DISCIPLES WERE CONCERNED THAT THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST WERE NOT FASTING. AND FASTING WAS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT RELIGIOUS DUTIES ALONGSIDE OF PRAYER AND ALMSGIVING. IN HIS EXPLANATION TO JOHN’S DISCIPLES, JESUS DOES NOT CONDEMN FASTING AT ALL. HE SIMPLY HELPS THEM TO UNDERSTAND THE JOY OF ENTERING INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM, WHAT IT MEANS TO REALLY ENTER INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. JESUS COMPARES THIS RELATIONSHIP TO THE JOY THAT WEDDING GUESTS SHOULD EXPERIENCE IN THE PRESENCE OF NEWLY-WED COUPLES, A BRIDEGROOM AND A BRIDE. IF ANYONE OF US HAVE EVER BEEN TO A WEDDING, THERE’S SOMETHING TANGIBLE, SOMETHING EVEN DIVINE BECAUSE IT’S A SACRAMENT, THE PRESENCE OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE AT A WEDDING. THAT SHOULD SPREAD AND SHOULD BE LIKE CONTAGIOUS. THOSE WHO ARE AT THE WEDDING, AND YOU SEE THIS WITH COUPLES THAT HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR MANY YEARS, 10, 15, 20, 25 YEARS. WHEN THEY GO TO A WEDDING, IT’S ALMOST LIKE THEY THEMSELVES EXPERIENCE, ONCE AGAIN, THE JOY OF NEWLY-MARRIED LOVE. BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU CAN LOSE THAT FERVOR. AND IT’S THE SAME THING IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. SOMETIMES WE CAN LOSE THE FERVENCY THAT WE ONCE HAD WHEN WE FIRST STARTED FOLLOWING THE LORD. AND WE NEED TO ALWAYS KEEP THAT IN MIND. A NEWLY-WED COUPLE BRINGS JOY AND HOPE. PUT THIS IN CONTEXT WITH OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. JESUS WAS EXPLAINING TO JOHN’S DISCIPLES THAT HE IS THE BRIDEGROOM AND WE ARE HIS DISCIPLES. WE ARE HIS BRIDE, WE ARE HIS CHURCH. HE IS GIVING IMAGERY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HIMSELF AND HIS BODY, THE MYSTICAL BODY, THE CHURCH. IN THIS SPECIFIC GOSPEL PASSAGE, JESUS ENCOURAGES JOHN’S DISCIPLES THAT TO FOLLOW HIM MEANS TO ENTER INTO A NEW TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP. JESUS CLEARLY SAYS THAT WHEN THE BRIDEGROOM IS NOT HERE, THERE WILL BE A TIME FOR FASTING. WHAT IS HE REFERRING TO HERE? HE’S TALKING ABOUT HIS IMMINENT DEATH. THIS HAPPENS MANY TIMES IN THE GOSPEL PARABLES. JESUS IS TALKING ABOUT, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN VERY SHORTLY THAT HE WILL BE PUT TO DEATH AND THAT HE WILL RISE, AND ON THE THIRD DAY, HE WILL BRING ABOUT NEW LIFE. JESUS CLEARLY SAYS THAT WHEN THE BRIDEGROOM IS NOT HERE, THERE WILL BE A TIME OF FASTING. JESUS DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE OLD LAW, BUT HE CAME TO BRING THE OLD LAW TO ITS COMPLETION AND TO ITS FULFILLMENT. THE IMAGERY THAT JESUS USES OF OLD WINE AND NEW WINESKINS IS VERY SIGNIFICANT. PONDER THIS IMAGE. HE USED THE IMAGE THAT PEOPLE WOULD RELATE TO AND COMPREHEND DURING THESE DAYS. FIRST OF ALL, WINE WAS NOT STORED IN BOTTLES AS IT IS TODAY BUT IN WINE SKINS. WHILE THE WINE WAS FERMENTING IN THE WINE SKINS, THERE WOULD BE PRESSURE ON THE WINESKINS FROM THE GASES THAT WERE BEING RELEASED FROM THE WINE THAT WAS BEING FERMENTED. THIS IS WHY NEW SKINS, NEW WINESKINS WERE REQUIRED IN THE PROCESS OF FERMENTATION. IF OLD WINESKINS WERE USED TO POUR WINE INTO IT BEFORE THE FERMENTATION PROCESS, THE OLD WINESKINS WOULD WHAT? BURST. UNDER THE PRESSURE OF THE GASES BEING PRODUCED. THIS IS TO SAY, THE OLD MAN MUST DAY. THE OLD MAN MUST BE PUT TO DEATH BY GOD’S GRACE. AND THIS IS NOT A PROCESS THAT WE BRING ABOUT OURSELVES. WE COOPERATE IN THIS PROCESS. WE SUBMIT OURSELVES TO CHRIST AND TO HIS SAVING GRACE. BUT WE CAN’T BRING THIS PROCESS ABOUT OURSELVES. THIS IS A PROCESS THAT’S BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IN OUR LIVES AND WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO IN OUR LIVES. THE OLD MAN MUST DIE. HERE’S ANOTHER MEANING PERHAPS. IMAGINE THAT WE ARE OLD WINESKINS, AND THE NEW LIFE OF GRACE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT CANNOT BE POURED INTO OLD WINESKINS. AGAIN, OUR OLD SELVES MUST BE CAST AWAY, MUST PASS AWAY. WE MUST ENTER INTO THIS NEW LIFE, THIS NEW CREATION, REALITY OF BEING A DISCIPLE OF JESUS. IN OTHER WORDS, THERE NEEDS TO BE A TRANSFORMATION. AND A LOT OF TIMES, EVEN IN THE TRANSFORMATION THAT WE EXPERIENCE, WE TEND TO HOLD ON TO OUR OLD SELVES. WE DON’T WANT TO LET THAT OLD LIFE GO. AND THIS HAPPENS MANY TIMES WHEN ONE ENTERS INTO A RELATIONSHIP IN MARRIAGE WHEN SOMEONE IS CALLED TO MARRIED LIFE, ONE CANNOT CONTINUE LIVING AS A SINGLE PERSON BUT INSTEAD MUST LEAVE THE OLD BEHIND AND CLING TO A NEW WAY OF LIFE AND TO DIE, BRINGING IN THE OLD LIFESTYLES AND HABITS WOULD TAINT THE NEW RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE. THIS IS WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT WHEN COUPLES PREPARE FOR MARRIAGE, THAT THEY GET EVERYTHING OUT ON THE TABLE BEFORE THEY ARE MARRIED. EASIER SAID THAN DONE, RIGHT? YOUR WHOLE LIFE, YOU UNPACK OLD HABITS, THE OLD MAN STARTS TO CREEP HIS HEAD UP AGAIN. IT’S NEVER COMPLETELY DONE AWAY WITH. WE’RE ALWAYS FIGHTING AGAINST THE OLD MAN, THE OLD HABITS, EVEN THE OLD HURTS AND WOUNDS THAT PERHAPS WE BRING INTO OUR LIVES, WHETHER IT BE IN RELIGIOUS LIFE OR MARRIED LIFE. THOSE WOUNDS TEND TO SOMETIMES CREEP THEIR HEAD UP AND SAY, OH, I’M STILL HERE. BUT THAT BEING SAID, WE STILL SUBMIT THOSE THINGS TO THE LAW OF GRACE, TO THE NEW LAW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS WANTS TO CONVERT OUR OLD CONDITION, OUR OLD BEAT UP WINE SKINS AND TRANSFORM US AND GIVE US NEW WINESKINS AND TO LIVE IN THE LAW OF GRACE. OLD WINESKINS CANNOT STRETCH WHEN THEY ARE FILLED. WHEN THE LORD FILLS US WITH HIS GIFTS, WE ARE ABLE TO ENTER INTO THIS NEW TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. THE LORD GIVES US THE CAPACITY AGAIN TO STRETCH. AND OLD WINE SKINS CAN’T STRETCH, THEY WILL BURST. AND THIS IS WHY WE MUST CONSTANTLY, IN OUR LIVES BE RENEWED, ENTERING INTO THIS RELATIONSHIP, THE JOY OF WHAT IT MEANS OF BEING A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST. HE GIVES US THE GRACE TO OVERCOME THE WEAK WINESKINS OF OUR LIFE, THE WINESKINS THAT HAVE CRACKS AND ARE DEFICIENT. THIS IS WHERE WE COME INTO THE LIFE OF THE SACRAMENTS, RECEIVING HOLY EUCHARIST FREQUENTLY, ESPECIALLY ON TODAY, FIRST FRIDAYS. THE LORD GAVE MANY BEAUTIFUL PROMISES TO SAINT MARY MARGARET ALACOQUE IN FRANCE, ABOUT THE DEVOTION OF THE SACRED HEART AND WHAT THE SACRED HEART MEANS. AND JUST TO MENTION TWO OF THOSE, NUMBER SEVEN, THE PROMISE THAT THE LORD GAVE, TEPID SOULS SHALL BECOME FERVENT. ALL OF US IF WE ARE HONEST FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY ONE TIME IN OUR LIFE OR ANOTHER. WE BECOME A LITTLE BIT TEPID, A LITTLE BIT LUKEWARM. BUT DEVOTION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS, COMING INTO CONTACT WITH HIS SACRED HEART HOPEFULLY TAKES THAT LUKEWARMNESS OF OUR LIFE AND IGNITES THE FIRE ONCE AGAIN. IN THE SAME PROMISE, IN NUMBER 8, HE SAYS THAT FERVENT SOULS SHALL BECOME QUICKLY, RISE TO PERFECTION. SO, HE WANTS TO BRING TO PERFECTION THE GRACE IN OUR LIVES. AND ONLY IF THE LORD CAN BRING ABOUT THIS TRANSFORMATION. THE OLD WINE SKINS WERE THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS LEADING UP TO CHRIST. JESUS BROUGHT THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS TO COMPLETION AND FULFILLMENT AND BROUGHT ABOUT NEW WINE SKINS, THE LAW OF GRACE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. AND TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS, WHAT DO OUR OWN PERSONAL WINESKINS LOOK LIKE? THIS IS SOMETHING TO BRING TO YOUR PRAYER. ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO REALLY REVEAL TO YOU WHAT YOUR OWN WINESKIN LOOKS LIKE; THAT IS, YOUR LIFE AND YOUR SOUL. DON’T BE AFRAID TO HAVE YOUR FAULTS REVEALED TO YOU BY THE LORD. MANY PEOPLE FEAR EVEN ENTERING INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD BECAUSE THEY FEAR THAT THE LORD WILL ASK THEM TO CHANGE TOO MUCH. AND THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO LET GO. THERE’S NOTHING TO FEAR ABOUT ENTERING INTO A DEEPER REGULARS RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST. HE TAKES NOTHING FROM US. HE WANTS TO GIVE US EVERYTHING. THIS IS A GREAT THING TO BRING TO CONFESSION AFTER A GOOD EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE AFTER THINKING ABOUT, WHAT DOES MY SOUL LOOK LIKE? WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT ARE PREVENTING ME FROM ENTERING INTO THE JOY OF THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD, TO BRING THESE THINGS TO THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE, AND TO NOT BE AFRAID. PERHAPS ITS BEEN SOME YEARS, SOME OF OUR VIEWERS THAT MAY BE LISTENING OR ON THEIR WAY TO WORK RIGHT NOW. MAYBE YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO CONFESSION IN FIVE, 10, 15 YEARS. DON’T BE AFRAID! JUST THINK ABOUT HOW JESUS WANTS TO LIBERATE YOU AND TO SET YOU FREE. HE DOESN’T DESIRE YOU TO WALK AROUND WITH THOSE OLD WINE SKINS THAT ARE ALREADY BURST. HE WANTS TO RENEW YOU. HE WANTS TO SET YOU FREE. AND MAY EACH OF US ALLOW THE LORD PERMISSION TO BRING ABOUT THIS TRANSFORMATION IN OUR LIVES. REMEMBER, YESTERDAY WAS THE MEMORIAL OF NOW, ST. TERESA OF CALCUTTA AND SHE WOULD OFTEN TELL PEOPLE, WE NEED TO GIVE GOD PERMISSION. WE NEED TO ALLOW THE LORD PERMISSION TO WORK IN OUR LIVES. HE NEVER COMES IN LIKE A DICTATOR. BUT THE LORD ASKS US FOR OUR PERMISSION, AND THIS COOPERATION INTO THE TRANSFORMATION INTO HIS LIKENESS.

    A pope can separate himself from the Church. Pope Paul IV said (dogmatically decreed) that a priest, bishop or a pope who holds heresy loses his office. If you look at the present canon law, it will lead us to the same conclusion.

    A pope is not God, he can err. He can also be a heretic. A pope can be wrong. There have been more than forty popes in the past to have held wrong theological views. They are not anti-popes, because they and any modern pope never ever plenarily poped any false teaching or liturgical practice into the set of Catholic Credenda.

    Popes Paul VI and John Paul II have at the very least, failed to govern God's church. We can also say, for the most part, that previous popes must be condemned for their failure to govern the Catholic Church in a manner similar to Popes Paul VI and JP II have governed the church.

    Who is wrong: the pre-Vatican Two popes (Apostolic Tradition) or the post-Vatican Two popes ("living tradition")?

    The Vatican Two church cannot claim to have the same faith and (liturgical) Morals as the pre-Vatican Two church. The Vatican Two church conform to an opposite liturgy and religion.

    UPDATED

    "The so-called Protestant Reformation was really THE PROTESTANT REVOLT or major apostasy. At Fatima, God reiterates that the Catholic Church is the one and only true church of Christ. The Pope is of utmost importance — for Catholics and for all mankind. The fate of the one true Church and, THUS, of the world is in HIS HANDS."

    "Beliefs that were attacked or denied by the Protestant Revolt or Great Apostasy as well as by New Age Catholicism and the prevailing "spirit of ecumenism" are reaffirmed and underlined at Fatima. Examples of such are: we are not saved by a "once and for all Protestant type of belief" but by faith expressed in a LIVED CONSECRATION; the Mass and the Eucharist are indeed what the Catholic Church has always believed them to be; the Bible, like Fatima, is not open to subjective interpretation or "subjective belief and twisting," but is objective and clearly understood; and, devotion to the Mass and the seven Sacraments, devotion to Mary and to the Rosary are of utmost importance, especially, in these end-times."

    (THE AWESOME FATIMA CONSECRATIONS by Father Paul Trinchard, S.T.L.)

    I remembered when my mother (New Church or Novus Ordo "Mass" Church) invited her liberal friends (Protestantism is dead and had been replaced by liberalism), and were talking about the bombs that hit Japan in WWII. I said something like, "no, they were Catholic cities," and Nancy was mad! She said some B.S. and I said, "yes, but most who died were Catholics!." Then after they left, my mother said, "Why don't you like Nancy?" And I told her, that she is a Protestant.

    ANNA EMMERICH, a nun, a mystic and a stigmatist who prophesied (in 1820) that many clerics would be heretics.

    "I see MANY excommunicated ecclesiastics who do not seem to be concerned about it or even aware of it. Yet, they are excommunicated. …It can be seen thereby that God ratifies the orders, decrees and interdicts issued by the Pope. …I saw that those things which pertained to Protestantism gradually gained the upper hand. …MOST PRIESTS contributed to the destruction of the Church."

    "Not every sin, even though it be serious, is such as to sever one AUTOMATICALLY from the body of the church as does schism, heresy or apostasy."

    (MYSTICI CORPORIS, POPE PIUS XII, 6/29/1943, P. 203.)
    (Please don't reply, I don't have time for "Catholics" or any other liberals.)
