Why Are Bishops So Set Against The Old Mass?

Did Francis Xavier Practice Zen Meditation?

What the...?

Well, I admit my first reaction to seeing the bulletin from St. Francis Xavier parish in NYC was a bit harsher than that.

A reader sent me the link to their bulletin which had information about several of their groups at the parish.

Upon studying the bulletin, I soon learned that the groups one would normally expect to find listed in the bulletin of a Catholic church were nowhere to be found. There were no sign ups for Eucharistic Adoration. Sadly missing was the listing for the Altar and Rosary Society. And for the life of me I couldn't locate anything about the Knights of Columbus.

But bless their bleeding progressive hearts, I did learn that there would be no meeting of the Gay Catholic Group until September. The Peace and Justice Committee meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and the Spirituality Committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month, in case you wanted to go. And the Catholic Lesbians meet in the West Room on the 2nd Friday of the month.

And don't forget the Zen Meditation group is looking for members every Monday at 7pm.

The Church is in a dare I say it, heretical state in some mainstream parishes. Pray and do penance.

Kudos To Father Burke!

I have been informed that this past Sunday a person attempted to disrupt the celebration of the Old Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Philadelphia.

An eye witness tells me a man attending the TLM went up to the Communion rail and instead of accepting the Host on the tongue as is the norm (and the rubrically correct way) he put his hands into the "receiving position" and ignored Father Burke's attempts to offer Communion. Father Burke then moved on to the next communicant.

This fellow got up and followed Father Burke shoving his hands over the heads of the kneeling communicants at Father Burke, who cooly ignored the man and continued to distribute to those properly disposed communicants.

The Novus Ordo plant then gave up and marched out of the church.

The man in question obviously had a point of some sort to make, but Father Burke was quick to protect our Lord from defilement. And make no mistake, the priest did not deny the man communion, the man rejected communion according to the traditional norms.

But I am certain good ole' Cardinal Rigali will not approve of this.

Everyday Muslim Happenings Update

Remember a little while back when the Muslim driver of Bishop Luigi Padovese brutally murdered him in cold blood and beheaded him while shouting "Allah Ackbar!"?

Well, as we should all know by now, that is what Muslims do in the name of their cult.

And they are showing no signs of stopping.

Here's a short update of the most recent murders in the name of Allah.

And more and more often, the targets are Christians. Go figure.

When they aren't complaining about 'Islamophobia', our Muslim friends busy themselves killing anyone they can find who disagree with them. Two weeks ago a young family was beaten to death by an Islamic mob in Pakistan.

Last week, a Pentecostal pastor was shot in the head in Russia.

At least ten Christian children were hacked to death and churches were burned to the ground over the weekend in Nigeria.

And this past Monday in Pakistan, two Christian brothers, (one a Christian pastor) who were to face charges of blasphemy in a court were shot dead while chained outside the halls of justice.

They aren't violent animals, they are expressing their religious freedoms, right?

Appeal To Heaven!

I've said this before and no doubt I'll say it many more times: America had better wake up.

Muslims are slowly gaining their foothold in America, and if we don't wise up and stop these murdering, false-prophet following heretics, the Islamatization of our country is not far off.

As a child I remember watching Walter Cronkite and watching footage of the Iran/Iraq war, the hostage crisis, and the USSR battling Afghanistan, and many other Middle Eastern wars and bombings and murders. I remember when Anwar Sadat was murdered while watching a parade, and I wondered what was wrong with "those people".

Now, "those people" are here and it won't be long until all the violence and all the heartache will be happening right here in America.

Will we wake up in time?

I doubt it. America is full of lefty leaning politically correct souls who have accepted the media hype about the "religion of peace".

I fear it won't be until muslims start blowing themselves up at our little league games and malls and county fairs that will we understand. But then it will be too late.

Here's a great video by Pat Condell about the latest Muslim atrocity at Ground Zero. Will we stop them from building an Islamic Victory Center and Mosque 600 feet from the cemetery of the World Trade Center?

Probably not.

Teach The True Faith

As you all know I've been railing against the lackluster teaching of the faith by laymen, priests and Bishops, not just in this Diocese, but worldwide ever since I underwent the travesty known as RCIA.

It seems that most "catholics" today either don't understand what the Church teaches, or have allowed themselves to be influenced by pop culture, and they pick and choose what they do and do not believe. They think that the Catholic faith can be shaped by their personal beliefs, chief among them, those "catholics" who believe that abortion should be permitted in the case of rape or incest. Or those who believe that to further the cause of women's equality, they should allowed to be priests. Or that priests should marry. Or any of a thousand other ideas floating around out there.

Michael Voris from touches on this issue. Give it a look and leave your comments.


Having two kiddies, a new home, and additional job responsibilities have all taken their toll on the Traddy.

But rest assured, I am here.

This re-launch of the blog, complete with a new logo is an example of my commitment to keeping this blog going despite all the hardships and attacks associated with it.

Thank you to all who have emailed to check up on me.

And yes, my search for a parish to attend is ongoing and more desperate with each parish we visit. It would seem that if one wants Tradition one either has to attend an independent chapel, or travel quite a distance. Disheartening to say the least.

As I've said before, as parishes and Bishops the world over are for the most part embracing Tradition, in the Diocese of Scranton, they barely consider it an option.

Thanks for your support, and pray for me!
