A day after the New York City St Patrick’s Day Parade announced a step toward s0-called “LGBT inclusion” of various perverted sodomite organizations, a pastor at the Archdiocese of Washington said that it is time to end such events altogether as they have been “hijacked.”
Instead of wearing green and attending St Patrick’s Day celebrations, Monsignor Charles Pope, said Catholics should “enter their churches and get down on their knees on St. Patrick’s Day to pray in reparation for the foolishness, and to pray for this confused world to return to its senses.”
The good monsignor was spot on right!
The statements were published on Msgr Pope’s designated blog on the Archdiocese of Washington’s website, but the post was apparently removed from the site shortly after BuzzFeed inquired about the post to a spokesperson. The original link to the post now leads to an error page.
ESH says: the sodomite Brown Shirt bullies win this round with weak churchmen not acting as shepherds protecting the flock, but kowtowing to the world and it’s vile evil.
So, ESH will say it for Msgr Pope who succumbs to Cdl McCarrick’s PC antics.
The Society of St Pius X, founded by the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, has recently come under attack by Bishop Zubic of the same diocese for their purchase of a used Catholic church that the diocese sold off more than 10 years ago, ESH has learned.
Zubic threw out the usual canard of “schism” to detract from the SSPX, which as an organization has never been in schism, whether de facto or de jure. Seems Zuzek has no problem gushing up and selling off diocesan churches to Lutherans and Baptists–who are formal heretics and schismatics–but has a great problem with those faithful Catholics who adhere to what the universal church has always taught, to be hled by all, and everywhere, a sure sign of Tradition and fidelity.
The church, formerly St James in the old West End neighborhood in the downtown area across the Ohio River from the Golden Triangle, was originally founded in 1853 (the release says 1854 but that was actually the formal dedication of the church building).
Here is their release in full. See for yourself:
On August 15, the Society of St. Pius X acquired the former St. James church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A few days later the Pittsburgh Diocese published a notification against the SSPX. Here is our press release in answer to this notification.
Press release: The Society of St. Pius X refutes the accusation of schism recently published by the Pittsburgh diocese
Platte City, Missouri
August 31, 2014
The Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) denounces the false accusation and unlawful threat made by the Diocese of Pittsburgh in its notification of August 29, 2014.
The Department for Canonical Services of the Diocese declares that “the Society of Saint Pius X is separated from the Catholic Church.” Ignoring the Church’s Canon Law, the same Department also states that “the Roman Catholic faithful are to know that free and willful participation with this group, including reception of the sacraments implies an act of separation from the Roman Catholic Church.”
The SSPX and the Catholics frequenting its sacraments have never proven to be declared schismatic, heretical or excommunicated by the authorities of the Church who alone are competent to deliver such a judgment.
As a religious congregation of the Roman Catholic Church, the SSPX rejects the novelties of the Second Vatican Council which come in contradiction with the previous infallible teaching of the Church, and it keeps the traditional Roman Mass which has “never been abrogated” as Pope Benedict XVI reminds us, and gives valid sacraments according to the law of the Church.
The SSPX is established in 50 countries in the world. In the United States, 100 priests serve in more than 150 chapels, priories, schools and retreat houses.
The SSPX recently acquired the former St James Church in Pittsburgh in order to offer the Immemorial Roman Mass every Sunday.
ESH can see the threat that Zubic and the diocese see with the SSPX being closer to downtown,, and as it were, in competition for the so-called “extraordinary form indult” Mass normally allowed at Holy Wisdom Church (formerly known as St Boniface when Cdl Wuerl ran the diocese). Any knowledgable Catholic knows that the Tridentine Rite Mass has never been abrogated, and does not need the local ordinary’s permission to be held by a validly ordained priest. Pope Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum (2007) confirmed–for the umpteenth time–that pearl of truth.
ESH can only see that Zubic feels threatened by the Mass of All Time and now wishes to engage in a very un-Christ like propaganda campaign against those who only wish to worship as Catholics of the Roman Rite have done for centuries, and to be left alone, if he wishes to not be charitable with his episcopal office with them. Seems in post-Vatican II NewChurch, everything goes with “ecumania”, masonic influences (the Ohio Valley is certainly full of this especially the hostile York Rite) and indifferentism, except when it comes to what was the norm until recent times.
Maybe he would like some pointers on how to grow Catholicism as the highly successful SSPX has done for 44 years, rather than shrink and sell off assets to pay debts and the results of homosexual sodomite predator lawsuits, the latest was the Marianist scandal at North Catholic revealed this past May.
Will the real Rev Sharpton, please stand up, please stand up? Who will help make this the new Ferguson?
The religion of peace has struck again, as promised when they beheaded Catholic James Foley. This time they beheaded Jewish journalist Steven Sotloff.
So glad Mohammedans have contributed more to the USA as described by the Kenyan kommie in his apology tour to Egypt in 2009.
Here’s the video: WARNING, some is pretty graphic and not for the faint of heart:
The Mohammedans have been called the “religion of peace” by the Regime’s Kenyan kommie. But most normal, non-delusional people have a better grip on reality.
The Mohammedans, by and large, are a violent, brutal, ugly and filthy set of devil worshipers, relying on almost no peace and little, paltry “love” , slandering the Redeemer of the human race, Jesus Christ the Son of God and His Ever Virgin Mother, Mary, mankind’s solitary boast.
Recently, in Bangladesh, which is 90% Mohammedan, a group of PIME Catholic sisters were brutally attacked and raped by Mohammedans in the town of Boldipuku. No doubt, their selfless service to the surrounding area residents, which harbor few Catholics and mostly Mohammedans, just didn’t cut it with this bunch of cowards. Maybe this was their version of a customer dissatisfaction survey?
Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been acting—whether Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Mesopotamia’s Islamic State, Somalia’s Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.
In the words of Bishop Sebastian Tudu “the nuns were beaten and molested, ending when police arrived.”
Catholic Online has the complete story:
[S]ome 60 men attempted to loot the building and rape the nuns… The attackers first tied the hands and legs of the mission’s two night watchmen and gagged them in the early morning hours. They then broke down the door of the room where the assistant pastor Father Anselmo Marandy was sleeping. They then raided the convent located in the mission campus…. Three PIME nuns suffered attempted rape and were sent to their provincial house in Dhaka, the national capital where they are trying to overcome the shock and mental suffering. “It’s very sad that the sisters cannot continue to work for the people, but our sisters are no longer safe,” Rosaline Costa, a Catholic human rights activist lamented. Local Christians are currently living in fear since the attack. Christians form only 0.8% of Dinajpur district’s three million people.
Although some of those quoted in the Catholic Online report say that this attack is “unprecedented,” the fact is, raped sisters is a phenomenon that goes back centuries with the Mohammedans. According to “Muslim” historian Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (1364-1442), during his raids on then Christian-majority Egypt (Copts), Caliph Marwan II (r.744–50) “made captive a number of women from among the nuns of several convents. And he tried to seduce one of them.”
Where’s Babu Bhatt, from Seinfeld, when you need him, to wag his finger at these lowlifes, as very, very bad men?
The report in the Wash Free Beacon summarizes it thus:
“August 23 is the day that we hope in the future many more Americans and members of Congress will use the opportunity to commemorate the victims of totalitarianism in Europe,” he added. “Of course it’s focused on Europe, but communism is an ideology that still governs people’s lives. It lives on in five existing communist states and in those five countries roughly 1.5 billion people, or 20 percent of the world’s population.”
“Both ideologies are terrible, but one is largely gone and one lives on,” Smith said [ESH emphasis].
As usual, our criminal drive by state run media totally ignored this 75th anniversary of Europe’s marking the 100+ millions exterminated and liquidated (the latter is the commie preferred term) at the hands of totalitarian regimes, due to the Molotov-Ribbentrop agreement of pre-WW II Germany and the Soviet Union.
Eventually, Hitler stabbed the commie Soviets in the back and invaded their country, with poor outcomes. He was greedy and went south first to the land of the South Slavs, so-called Jugoslavija, in April 1944, causing untold damage on top of the revolutionary war going on there between the good guy Home Guard and the commie partisans.
That little delay caused Hitler’s troops to come into western Russia late in the year, trying to take Moscow in the winter, something NO invading army has ever done in known or recorded history, at least since the founding of Ki’iv-Rus in the 900s AD.
More than 100+ million–mostly Christians–died at the hands of the communists in the 20th century, far exceeding the oft-stated 6 million of the holocaust. Many groups suffered and none but those with communist religious fervor were untouched, even Molotov suffered from the paranoid frequent Soviet purges
August 23, 2014 marks the 75-year anniversary of a pact between Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin that ignited the Second World War, an agreement of non-aggression that allowed the fascist and communist regimes to divide up Europe.
The Black Ribbon day now serves as a reminder of the dangers of totalitarianism, and an opportunity to educate the world about lesser-known details of what became the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.
“In the 1980s, in the US, South America, Australia and in Western Europe there were refugee communities from the captive nations of Europe, the Baltic countries, Poland, Czech, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenija, Hrvatska (Croatia), Srpska (Serbia) and others, who began to use August 23 as Black Ribbon Day as a day to protest the commie Soviet Union and to make the point to Americans and Westerners that the people living behind the Iron Curtain were living under totalitarian regimes,” Marion Smith the executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation stated.
The leader of a prominent liberal super PAC on Wednesday defended taking money from pro-abortion extreme leftwing billionaire George Soros while simultaneously condemning conservatives for benefiting from the fortunes of the Koch Brothers.
During a Twitter exchange Wednesday, Brad Woodhouse of the Soros-backed American Bridge 21st Century argued that it is okay for his group to accept money from liberal billionaires because, unlike the Koch Brothers, these donors are “not looking to screw
the middle class to enrich themselves.”
Conservatives argue that thinking is patently hypocritical.
Andrew Kaczynski, a reporter at BuzzFeed, responded to that email on Twitter by stating: “It’s almost pathetic how weak the Democrats ‘run against the Koch brothers’ strategy is.”
Woodhouse, clearly rattled by the criticism, responded to Kaczynski on Twitter that “it’s a shame you have no idea what you are talking about” before taking a cheap shot at BuzzFeed’s content: “Stick to cats.”
Thought you’ve seen it all with indifferentism and syncretism following the post-Vatican II modernists hits a new low in a parish in San Antonio. Seems a local church there, st Mark’s, along with the martyrology of the weekly calendar, included the following:
If you want to download the entire bulletin (7 Mb) to see it in context it’s here (page 3, left side)—–>>>>Bulletin-515210_14_06_22
How, exactly, does this build up the faith of the parishioners? To equate a pagan holy period with the inestimable Feasts of the Most Sacred Heart, the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, and all the other Feasts listed…….it is incredible.
St. Paul tells us (1 Cor X:20): But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils.
St. David (of Goliath fame) tells us in the Psalms (95:5) For all the gods of the [heathen] gentiles are devils; but the Lord made the Heavens.
We don’t need this kind of compromising “dialogue” with pagan religions like the violent Mohammedans, with their wholesale slaughter of Christians in the mid east at present, including emptying out whole towns of tens of thousands of their Christians, in some areas where Christians have been continuously for 0ver 1800 years!
