"Christ's Mass" 23 December, 2017. Ember Saturday


 

 The Holy Sacrifice that is offered on the 25th of December, during which God comes to our altars on the anniversary of his coming to Bethlehem, has long been regarded as especially "Christ's Mass" - which has abbreviatedly come to be Christmas.

THE AMERICAN CHRISTMAS STORY

 

Christmas used to be celebrated by Catholics as the day when God came into our world as a Baby. But Christmas in the U. S. has no such limited significance. It is, instead, the great democratic festival that means all things to all men, the day when everyone celebrates and displays whatever religious feeling, or lack of it, he has, or pretends to have. Christmas, as it is observed in the U. S., is not the day when the Word became flesh, it is the day when the Word becomes anything that anyone wants Him to be. 

 

Christmas in the U. S. is a day composed of, and characterized by, such miscellaneous items as Santa Claus, eggnog, mistletoe, candy canes, scotty dogs, snowfalls, and fruit cake. It is a day presided over by Protestant sentimentalism and by Jewish commercialism. It is a day that provides Americans with an opportunity for re-calling their Thanksgiving gluttony and for anticipating their New Year’s drunkenness. It is a day when the Protestants, who refuse to believe that the Baby whose birthday they are observing is true God and true man, and that His mother is the true Mother of God, try to turn Him into a symbol. They make Him stand for peace, or goodwill, or some other high-sounding Protestant abstraction, and they enthrone in His place, as the child of Christmas, that obnoxious little Protestant brat, Tiny Tim. 

 

Christmas in the U. S. is a day when the Jews, who have rejected the Baby as their King, their God, and their Messias, re-affirm their belief in the divinity of the dollar. Christmas is not so much a day they care to celebrate themselves as one that they urge others to celebrate by exchanging the gifts that they sell and the cards that they write. 

 

Christmas in the U. S. has been made what it is by the Protestants and by the Jews. But it is the Catholics — and especially the Catholic priests — who have allowed them to make it so. Because of the neglect, the equivocation, and the infidelity of too many American priests, the significance and the challenge are gone from Christmas, and it has been turned into the kind of day that the Protestants and the Jews have been able to take over and pervert to their own interests. And this has happened not because of what the priests have said and done on Christmas Day, only, but because of what they have said and done all through the year. 

 

Too many American priests have failed to insist on the meaning and the necessity of the Incarnation; they have been careful, when in the presence of non-Catholics, always to talk about “God,” rather than about Jesus, the God-man; they have given the impression that all they ask of non-Catholics is belief in some common un-incarnated deity rather than in the God Who became a Baby at Bethlehem. They have pretended to the Jews that there is some other way to the Father than through this Baby; they have pretended to the Protestants that there is some other way to this Baby than through His Mother; they have pretended to all that there is some other way to Heaven than the single way He ordained. By equivalating the love and knowledge of this Baby with whatever belief one might sincerely hold, they have made Him seem vague and unreal. They have made His message vague, his Church vague, the Way to salvation vague. 

 

Christmas in the U. S. will be the same in 1952 as it has been in other years. There will be the usual decorations, the usual revels, the usual songs. The Protestants will go on filling their mouths with plum pudding and talking about the spirit of the day; the Jews will go on hanging signs saying “Seasons Greetings” over their shops and hiring fat men to wear red suits and frighten the children. And, in the Catholic churches, Midnight Mass will be said; priests will bring God down upon their altars, in a presence as real and intimate as when He lay in the crib of Bethlehem. 

 

But when Mass is over, and the door of the tabernacle has been locked, these American priests will go on talking and acting as though it does not matter, for those who choose to ignore it, that God has become a Baby. 

 

POINTERS

 

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine hopes to have the first installment of its new translation of the Bible out in time for Christmas. The translation is notable chiefly for its treatment of Genesis 3:15, the famous and crucial text in which God the Father, speaking to the serpent (the Devil), establishes enmity between him and Our Lady. In former versions, it read: “She shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.” The Confraternity has decided, for the instruction and edification of American Catholics, that Our Lady does not belong in the text, and has changed it to read: “He shall crush thy head ... ” 

 

If Our Lady could have had the benefit of the Confraternity’s scholarship in time, she would surely not have made the mistake of appearing at Lourdes with her heel crushing the serpent’s head. 

 

*   *   *   *   *   
 

For centuries, Catholics have believed that the world was created the way Genesis says it was, and that, therefore, the age of the world is a knowable, and not too large, number. Not until the “anthropology-priests” of our day have Catholics defied the Church’s clear tradition on the age of the world. Each Christmas, however, the priests’ Breviary contains a decided kick in the shin-bones for those excavating clerics who prefer to think that the ancestors of the Infant Jesus were the baboons of a few million years ago. 

 

Says the Martyrology for the 25th of December: “In the 5,199th year of the creation of the world, from the time when God in the beginning created the heavens and the earth, in the 2,957th year after the flood; in the 2,015th year from the birth of Abraham; ... in the 42nd year of the rule of Octavian Augustus, all the earth being at peace, Jesus Christ, the Eternal God, and the Son of the Eternal Father, ... was born in Bethlehem of Juda of the Virgin Mary, made Man.”

BY FATHER FEENEY

St. Joseph’s Christmas

Not envied, not desired,

Only admired: —

A girl on this will thrive

As on no thing alive.

And such was God’s rare plan

For Mary’s man.

He watched his loved one flower

Hour after hour,

With footstep caused no fear

In angel-anxious ear,

Gave her his husband’s praise

In nought but gaze:

The exquisite adulation

Of contemplation

That lets a fact reveal

Itself as real,

And, in Our Lady’s case,

As full of grace.

He must have marveled most

When of the Holy Ghost

Her little Son who shivered,

At dawn was delivered.

He must have feared and feared

And hid behind his beard

When what was not his life

He welcomed from his wife

And his bride’s Babe and Lord

Adored and adored.

At Christ’s Nativity,

St. Joseph, I love thee.

BREAD OF LIFE (excerpt)

 

At Bethlehem, in the crib, is a loving, warm, exquisite Baby. In order to find that little Charity, that bundle of Love lying in the straw, you have got to walk down the hills, over the rocks, across the brooks, into the dark, in your hunt for the cave. You have got to sacrifice other things in order to find it, even the brightness of the stars. The songs of the angels have to be put away, or, if you are a shepherd, your sheep. That is how chaste you have to be to find this Baby ... 

 

A Child is given unto us! A Child is born to us, Who is Christ the Lord! Our Lord’s life was, in its simplicity, the life of a child. He did not have too many friends. I do not think you would call seventy-two disciples too many followers — or twelve apostles too many close friends. ... 

 

We all stay a child as we go through life — the best part of us does. We are a child when we eat, when we sleep, when we are sick, when we are old. When we are lonely, we are a child; when we are hurt, we are a child. If we only would let that child in us become interested in Jesus, you would be surprised how easily we could find Him! 

 

 

Jesus of Bethlehem is given all over the world in the simple, complete value of Christmas, in all the traditions we know — in the kind of story one tells to a child. The inspired record of His life in Holy Scripture is there, in case a child is looking. If you are looking as a child this Christmas, it is child’s play to find it. 

 

And Still ...

And still ... though maybe not one-tenth the town
Believes what boon this birthday brought us down,
We go on keeping Christmas just the same
With tinsel tricks, pretenses, and a name.
Whatever else one could or could not say,
(And who but God could deal us such a day?),
There must have come to notice, less or more,
That blinds are drawn in the department store.

And having soared in sales of Christmas cards
Inscribed with Christ-less rhymes by Christ-less bards,
Proprietor Mazuma sends the season’s
Best greetings round to all for Christ-less reasons;

Bravely endures a one-day profit pause,
Appeased with turkey and cranberry sauce,
Then snoozes sweetly as a buttercup,
Or boozes indiscreetly, woken up.
And still ... and still ... the marvel Mother-Maiden
Is of her infant Lad and Lord unladen;
Emmanuel, grown little for our sakes,
Into our world His baby-entrance makes.

And still ... above the Cave the stars are bright,
Some sheep and shepherds run with all their might;
And kings and camels from the Orient come,
While angels sing: Let there be Peace, for some!

 

DIM LIGHTS ON A CHRISTMAS TREE

 

Every December twenty-fifth, in liturgical generosity, the Church gives us three distinct Masses: the Midnight Mass, the Mass at Dawn, and the Mass of Christmas Day. In the midst of the middle Mass, the Mass at Dawn, the Church presents us with the memory of a girl named Anastasia, the only saint who gets a “feast day” commemoration on Jesus’ Birthday. 

 

Saint Anastasia was martyred by burning on December twenty-fifth in the year 304, which means that her birth into Eternity occurred on the same day, 304 years later, as Jesus’ birth in Time. Among all the Christmas Day occurrences of nineteen hundred years, the Church has chosen to remember this fourth-century girl who defeated the flames that consumed her by becoming a new kind of Christmas star, burning in martyrdom to light us the way back to Bethlehem. 

 

And it is doubtful, in this year of Our Lord nineteen hundred and fifty-two, that we should even recall the first Christmas, were it not for Anastasia and the girls of her Catholic courage whose professions of Faith still echo at Christmas time for men of good will. It is because we are assured of this echo in our world that Saint Paul tells us that “faith comes from hearing” a truth which is more often rendered in Latin, and was once put poetically this way: 

 

And shepherds knew that Christmas was

A glory to agree to.

For angels were provided speech,

And fides ex auditu!

 

Thus, Christmas has traveled down to us by a route that is both audible and feminine. Christmas is a spoken invitation to hurry to Bethlehem and wonder at God in His Mother’s arms. And, to the Catholic children of America, that invitation has been most audible, and most feminine, when it has come from the dedicated lips of a Catholic nun. 

 

We, who have been the Catholic children of America, retain whatever we have left of Christmas because of our early acquaintance with a wimpled lady in black. She talked of mangers and magi as if it were her custom to encounter them often; although we knew that day after day her one excursion into the world was a silent triangular trip which took her from the convent to the church, from the church to the school, and from the school back home to the convent. 

 

Sister Imelda (or Agnes Joseph, or M. Theodosia) would each year conduct the school’s Christmas pageant. With much faith and a few yards of crepe paper, she annually transformed Jack (or Tom, or Joe) into a herald angel, complete with gilded trumpet and a well rehearsed declamation of “Glory to God in the highest.” And, when the pageant was over, Sister would return to the convent, grateful to Jesus that in her singleness she had been made fruitful with children who adored Him as God at Christmas time. 

 

Because we love our sisters, we who have been the Hail Mary-reciters in their classrooms, and the paper angels in their plays, we are concerned about them this December. We have had, lately, some disturbing reports on America’s Sisters, associating them with things foreign and hostile to them. Only after much investigation did we accept the report that Sisters who teach in our schools are now getting instructions on how to do it from nun-smearing professors at secular universities. Regretfully, we have read in recent public print the dissatisfaction of some of our nuns with their traditional clothing — how they hoped that they could be allowed berets instead of veils: how they would be pleased to look more like Red Cross nurses; how black was a depressing color, and long skirts an encumbrance. While a best-selling Catholic book is exploiting the cartoon potentialities of America’s nuns, the Catholic Press, ever anxious to prove that Catholics can meet Protestant standards of achievement, has taken to publicizing a hyphenated series of nun-poets, nun-chemists, nun-physicists and nun-jeep drivers. 

 

Hopefully, we who have been the Catholic children of America are praying for the one nun in every convent who will be a little sad this Christmas, wishing there were someone around to say, “Dear Sister, throw away your test-tubes, burn up all your degrees, and come and tell your children about Jesus and His Mother. Don’t leave us at Christmas time with a Bethlehem and no Baby, a manger and no Mary, plenty of crepe paper and no angels.”

The 52nd Anniversary of the Sub -Antarctic Campbell Island 1965/1966 Expedition ... A Mainly Pictorial Review

_______________________

Background

 

Campbell Island lies about 400 miles SSE of Stewart Island, New Zealand, just south of the roaring 40's and into the howling 50's, at a latitude of 52 deg 33' 26" S. lat., 169 deg 08' 41"E. long.

It is small, covering about 40 square miles, and about 10 miles north to south and east to west, rugged with precipitous sea cliffs, buffeted by the storm swept waters of the Southern Ocean, and there are many spectacular off shore islets.

 

The weather conditions on Campbell Island are unpredictable, with overcast skies and gale force winds the normal, but there are quiet days of brilliant sunshine. [ Sunshine hours for the year are around 600 hours].  Although temperatures are uniformly low, snowfalls are rare with rainfall around 48 inches a year.

Campbell Island was discovered by Campbell & Company in 1810,  when the sailing ship Perseverance, commanded by Captain Frederick Hasselburgh, was engaged in searching for  for fresh fields to replace sealing grounds which under indiscriminate plunder, were now failing to supply payable cargoes.  He named one of two islands he discovered, Campbell Island, after the owner of his vessel.

 

 

Later on in the 1940's it was used as a coastal watch station, and after the closing of the coastal watch station in 1945, was set up as a Meteorological Station under the jurisdiction of the Air Department, being strategically located for weather observations, with surface and upper air information using  radiosonde balloons sending back data on pressure, temperature and humidity, this in turn with other data, being reported back to Wellington to be used in forecasting New Zealand weather.

Radiosonde upper air balloon sends back data on temperature, pressure and humidity to ground station.

 

Campbell Island may not be as spectacular for its plant life as its northern neighbor, the Auckland Islands,

 

 

 

  but it has a unique animal and bird population, with huge sea elephants which litter the shores of the harbours, sea lions abound on the sandy beaches and grassy slopes, and wary fur seals are moderately plentiful on the exposed rocky coats.

Antipope Francis: "Thank God I Have No Church"! Tuesday 30th October, 2017 Vigil of All Saints

Antipope Francis: "Thank God, I Have No Church!"

______________________

 

 

 

Antipope Francis says “Thank God, I have no Church” and repeatedly rejects proselytism



Brother Michael Dimond

Francis’ interview with “Il Messaggero”.  The interview was published on June 29, 2014:

Question for Francis: “Why have you, from the very beginning, chosen to stress your role as the Bishop of Rome?”

Francis: “Francis’ first service is this: to be the Bishop of Rome.”

Question for Francis: “Where is Bergoglio’s Church headed?”

Francis: “Thank God, I have no Church; I follow Christ.”[1]

The interviewer asks Francis about where his “Church” is headed.  Antipope Francis, a person many consider to be the head of the Catholic Church, responds by saying: “Thank God, I have no Church.”  This is an incredible heresy.  It’s a public statement that he is not a member of the Catholic Church, and that he is not the pope.  Catholics profess belief in the Catholic Church in the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene-Constantinople Creed, and many dogmatic councils.

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “the diocese of Rome”:

“… the Church must do something, must change, must convert in order to become mother.  She must be fruitful!… This is not a question of seeking to proselytize, no, no!  To go ring the bell: ‘Would you like to come to this association called the Catholic Church?…’… The Church – Benedict XVI told us – does not grow through proselytism…”[2]

Francis says the Church “must change” and “must convert”.  This is heretical.  Francis once again condemns proselytism – that is, attempting to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith.  He has done this many times.  To say that he has the Catholic faith, in the face of such a fact, is to blaspheme.  Francis quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI to support his rejection of converting non-Catholics.

Francis’ June 16, 2014 address to “His Grace” Justin Welby, the “Archbishop” of Canterbury:

“‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!’ (Ps 133:1)  Once again we meet, Your Graceas co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard and fellow pilgrims on the path to his Kingdom.  I welcome you and the distinguished members of your delegation… We must walk together. Your Grace, I thank you once more for your visit. I ask the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry and to sustain you and your loved ones in joy and peace.  Amen.”[3]

Francis says that he is in “unity” with the non-Catholic leader, Justin Welby.  He clearly teaches that Welby is in the Church when he says that he is a “co-worker in the Lord’s vineyard”!  That is completely heretical.  Francis also clearly indicates that the heretic Welby is on the road to the Kingdom of Heaven, rather than to Hell.  Welby, by the way, in addition to being a complete heretic and schismatic, accepts homosexuality.  Welby has spoken out strongly against “homophobia”.  Welby also said: “You see gay relationships that are just stunning in the quality of the relationship”.[4]  Francis (as usual) calls the non-Catholic leader Welby “Your Grace”.  Antipope Francis ends by asking “the Lord to shower his blessings on your ministry”.  Welby’s “ministry” is wicked, false, schismatic, and heretical.  It leads souls to eternal damnation.

On July 26, 2014, Francis answered questions from “priests” from “the Diocese of Caserta”.  Francis recounts a story a “priest” told him about a woman who left “Catholicism” and joined a Protestant sect.  The “priest” told Francis that the woman (now a Protestant) kept a statue of The Blessed Virgin.  The Protestant woman said that she now keeps the statue in the closet, for fear that her Protestant “pastor” might find it.  Francis said the “priest” told him that the woman has not returned to “the Catholic Church”, and that “she continues to go to Protestant” services.  Francis then says: 

“And he did not go beyond that, and he did not urge her to return to the Catholic Church.  It is that prudent closeness, which knows just how far one can reach… Proselytism is a trap… And Pope Benedict has a beautiful expression.  He said it in Aparecida but I believe he repeated it elsewhere: ‘The Church grows not by proselytism, but by attraction.’”[5]

Francis once again confirms what he has said many times before: do “not urge” non-Catholics “to return to the Catholic Church”.  This is word for word the opposite of Catholic teaching.

Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (# 10), Jan. 6, 1928: “… the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it…”

When teaching that horrible heresy, Francis once again quotes the apostate Antipope Benedict XVI (who likewise condemned proselytism).

Francis’ July 28, 2014 address during his visit to the “pastor” and community of the “Pentecostal Church of Reconciliation” in Caserta, Italy:

“Good morning, Brothers and Sisters,

My brother, Pastor Giovanni, began speaking about the center of our life: to be in the presence of Jesus… From the first moment of Christianity, there has been this temptation in the Christian community.  ‘I am this; ‘I am that’,  ‘No!  I am the Church, you are the sect’… And thus who acquires us is he, the father of division.  Not the Lord Jesus, who prayed for unity (Jn 17), he prayed!  What does the Holy Spirit make?  I said he makes something else, which one might think of as division, but it isn’t.  The Holy Spirit creates ‘diversity’ in the Church.  The First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12.  He creates diversity!  It’s true this diversity is so rich, so beautiful.  But then, the same Holy Spirit creates unity, and this way the Church is one in diversity.  And, to use a beautiful word of an Evangelist whom I love very much, a diversity ‘reconciled’ by the Holy Spirit.  He does both these things: he creates the diversity of charismata and then makes harmony of the charismata… This is unity in diversity.  It is on this path that we Christians do what we call by the theological name of ecumenism… Some may be shocked: ‘But the Pope went to the Evangelists!’  He went to visit his brothers!  Yes!  Because – and what I speak is the truth – they first came to visit me in Buenos Aires.  And there is a witness here: Jorge Himitian can tell the story of when they came, they made the approach… And thus this friendship began, this closeness between the pastors of Buenos Aires, and here today.  I thank you.  I ask you to pray for me, I need it… that at least I won’t be so bad.  Thank you![6]

Here Francis clearly teaches that heretical Protestant sects were willed by the Spirit!  He also condemns the idea that one group says “I am the Church, you are the sect”!  He says that position is from “the father of division”.  He thus teaches that it’s of the Devil for the Catholic Church to teach that it alone is the true Church, with non-Catholic sects being false.  Francis calls the Protestant “minister”, who is a layman, a “pastor” and “my brother”.

Francis then mentions his closeness with “pastors” of Protestant sects and asks them to pray for him.  Francis declares that if these Protestants pray for him he “won’t be so bad”.  He is a complete and total apostate.

BREAKING NEWS!   7.8 M EARTHQUAKE STRIKES NEW ZEALAND A FEW MINUTES AFTER MIDNIGHT

 

New Zealand Earthquake

7.8 Earthquake strikes New Zealand around 12:04 am Monday 14 November,2016 NZDT

  

  Biggest Earthquake to strike New Zealand, since the Napier Earthquake in 1931. 2 deaths to date reported.  Felt throughout N.Z. from Dunedin in the South to Whangarei in the far north of N.Z.

 

We are in Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt about half an hour drive north of Wellington with no damage here apart from loss of power which is back on this morning...

 

A few pictures included.   Reports of strange lights around about time of the quake…

 

Have been many big aftershocks/earthquakes about three more than 6.0 and even more greater than 5.0 .....

 

Not a lot of sleep for many.   I was on the internet at the time ready to close it down when it hit....lasted for ages (probably up to a minute). Having been through the Christchurch quakes of 2010/2011, I stayed put and protected my computer, while singing the Ave Stella Maris hymn...having great faith in Our Lady!

 

There was and is still a Tsunami warning in place for the east coast of both islands and around Wellington/ Cook Strait area. Earlier Kaikoura recorded waves of 2.5 metre, Christchurch 1 metre and Wellington half a metre.

 http://mediawhores.co.nz/2016/10/04/hillary-clinton-emails-show-advanced-warning-of-christchurch-earthquake/

Recently released Hillary Clinton e-mails show U.S. State Department advanced knowledge of the big Christchurch Earthquake on 22 February, 2011.

The first e-mail sent by the State Department to head of the department, Hillary Clinton, was sent a full 6 hours before the actual quake hit, Washington being 18 hours behind NZST.

Assange had promised to release a 'bombshell' this week, but the mainstream media whores had claimed he backed out.   Seems he backed out of the planned conference, but not the actual release of data online.

Seems they even knew of the 6.3M quake - a possible reference to the Freemasonic Kabbalah number 666.   There is substantial evidence the quake was in fact much bigger than 6.3m ref. my remark a short time after the '6.3'M earthquake struck shortly before 1pm...."it felt more like a 7.4M quake! "

Then if it was indeed much more than the 6.3M reported by Geonet, how come the tie-up between Hillary Clinton's -mails and Geonets reckoning?     Was Geonet pressured by the N.Z. Govt after U.S. State Department pressure?    Seems highly likely!
