31 July: St. Ignatius of Loyola – Of the Church Militant and book shredding

Here is the Martyrologium Romanum entry for this great saint and founder of the Society of Jesus. (To the right is my first class relic of St. Ignatius).

Memoria sancti Ignatii de Loyola, presbyteri, qui, hispanus in Cantabria natus, in aula regia et militia vitam egit, donec, post grave vulnus acceptum ad Deum conversus, Lutetiae Parisiorum studia theologica complevit et primos socios sibi ascivit, quos postea in Societatem Iesu Romae constituit, ubi ipse fructuosum exercuit ministerium et in operis conscribendis et in discipulis instituendis, ad maiorem Dei gloriam.

This morning Holy Mass was celebrated in the presence of a 1st class relic of the saint.

Here is the spiffy Collect from 1962 edition of the Missale Romanum:

COLLECT (1962MR)

Deus, qui ad maiorem tui nominis gloriam propagandam, novo per beatum Ignatium subsidio militantem Ecclesiam roborasti: concede; ut, eius auxilio et imitatione certantes in terris, coronari cum ipso mereamur in caelis.

LITERAL VERSION

O God, who strengthened the Church militant with a new reinforcement through blessed Ignatius, in order to spread widely the greater glory of Your Name, grant that we, who are contending on earth by his help and example, may deserve to be crowned with him in heaven.

The Novus Ordo Collect for Ignatius was weenied-down, I think:

COLLECT (2002MR)
Deus, qui ad maiorem tui nominis gloriam propagandam
beatum Ignatium in Ecclesia tua suscitasti,
concede, ut, eius auxilio et imitatione certantes in terris,
coronari cum ipso meramur in caelis.

Notice anything missing??

Let’s have your perfect renderings of the prayers.

Here is a shot of the altar and tomb of the saint in the Church called the Gesù in the heart of Rome.

Now that’s an altar.  Church architecture reflects the Church’s understanding of her own identity.  Each era has a different expression.  Compare and contrast.

To the right and near the bottom, along where the Communion rails were until recently, are allegorical statues of faith. They are among my favorites in Rome.  Angels tear up the books of the heretics Luther and Calvin.  When the statues were cleaned, the Jesuits, craven gits, extracted the bronze letters of the authors names and ripped out the rails.

Were these statues to have experienced a true aggiornamento, they’d be tearing up The Pill and the Fishwrap, though I admit there are many other candidates.

Nancy Pelosi rides again!

Hamas is a “humanitarian organization.”

“And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization,” Pelosi said to Crowley.

HERE

Perhaps she should go spend some with Hamas in order to find out what’s in it.

Meltdown Countdown: Fishwrap on the Synod

The Synod on the Family will start in October.   Already the dissidents at the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap) are whining.   They have twigged to the fact that they are not going to get what they want.

Today there is an editorial which shows that they are starting to panic.

Editorial: Obstacles riddle synod on the family’s path

Editor’s note: The 50-page instrumentum laboris, or working document, that was released June 26 and will guide the discussion during the October Synod of Bishops on the family was dry and impersonal, lifeless almost, and that confounded us at NCR.
From personal experience [You see... it's all about "experience".] and from listening to colleagues, readers and friends, we have experienced marriage and family life as life-giving and joyous. Marriage and family life is not without its challenges and struggles; [and, since I'm not married dare I guess, "experiences"?] it offers ample lessons in humility and forgiveness, but that, too, at the best of times can be nurturing. [Just what does that mean? Lessons are "nurturing"?] If the writers of the instrumentum laboris, which is now supposed to be being studied in dioceses throughout the world, had begun with the fundamental experience of people who have lived in marriages and raised families, we wondered, how different would it have been? [And just imagine the difference had the experience been intermediate or even advanced!]

[...]

Accordingly, the instrumentum laboris for the upcoming extraordinary session (a second, ordinary session dealing with the same subject will be held in October 2015) bears some remarkable observations and questions on such topics as natural law and divorced and remarried Catholics.  [When dissidents start mentioning "natural law", you know that they are soon going to say that deviant sex is just fine, or maybe even a "nurturing experience".]

It is imperative, however, to first understand [to first split an infinitive] the culture in which the synod mentality is rooted. [Do you pick up the scare word? If you said "mentality", you got it right!] As diverse as the issues and personalities involved in meetings of bishops from around the world, a common thread binds all of these gatherings. They have been, without exception, organized by, participated in and interpreted for the world by a tiny representation of humanity, celibate and exclusively male, [as opposed to... partially male? hermaphroditic?] whose careers [Oooo! Pope Francis would like them!] have been largely dedicated to maintaining the status quo [Oooo!  BAAAD.  We want change!] in a very exclusive fraternity. [C'mon.  "Very"? It's either exclusive or it ain't.]

The disparity between those who will be doing the talking and deciding and those who will be talked about — the instrumentum is concerned primarily with married men and women, as well as homosexual persons [DING! You knew it was coming.] — is, in this instance, particularly glaring.

[...]

They are lowering expectations, I guess.   But wait!  There’s more:

Finally, [not really - There's another "Finally," several paragraphs later.] how effective might a synod be in its consideration of marriage and the family when, again, the celibate men of the institution insist on rules regarding contraception that much of the community has consistently rejected for more than 50 years?  [Decoded: The majority opinion (of the so-well-informed) should determine the Church's doctrine.]

A section of the document abounds in the church’s soaring rhetoric about marriage, analogizing it to the Trinitarian love of God and Christ’s relationship with his church. Marriage is called “the great mystery” and a fundamental “community of love.”

But when discussing sex, the deepest human expression of enduring love between two people, humans are reduced to the level of baboons, their only legitimate purpose for engaging in sex the production of more little humans. Love and procreation are reduced to biological necessity. And if that is not the primary intent of every sexual act, then the marriage is fundamentally flawed in the church’s eyes. [You can sense what this is driving at, right?]

The working paper for the synod claims the reason the teaching is rejected is because of lousy catechesis. Lots of married people would tell the synod it’s because of even worse theology and anthropology. [So much for Catholic Doctrine!] The men making the rules really don’t understand the profound joy and endless implications of conjugal love in an enduring, committed relationship. They don’t understand, in any ongoing, experiential way, that fundamental “community of love.” [Get it?] It is about far more than producing offspring. Responsible parenthood involves so much more than making certain that each instance of sexual expression could result in another child. [See it?]

Nor does the paper address at all what marriage could mean for those unable to conceive, or those who marry beyond their childbearing years. And dare we mention the reality that keeps pressing on us with a logic that seems to be accepted more and more by segments of the community — homosexuals in a committed, loving relationship?  [DING!  There it is!  You knew it was coming, didn't you.  Decoded: If a whole bunch of Catholics want to stick what they have anywhere they want then, hey!, the Church had better change its bad theology and lousy anthropology.]

[...]

I see that the Catholic League also picked up on this whine. Here is what they say:

What accounts for them acting out? They are alternating between rage and depression. They thought Pope Francis would usher in their dream—the Protestantization of the Catholic Church—but instead they have come to the conclusion that they will not get their way this fall. But only a baboon would have thought they were going to win in the first place.

It’s a terrible thought: dying excommunicated…

I want you to stop for a moment and do something: Right now… try to imagine what goes through the mind of a soul during her first 15 seconds in Hell.  The realization of where you are…

“This can’t … be happening… to ME….

But. It. Has.

Let’s get a couple things clear.

We should never wish Hell for a person out of malice.  We must pray that both God’s mercy and God’s justice place people exactly where they ought to be.  If that place is Hell, so be it, but we should prefer and pray that all find the means to attain heaven, even after an unfathomably long time of purgation.  We especially pray for God’s mercy on all obvious sinners, just as we pray for mercy for ourselves, for wee, too, are sinners.  We should desire that even the most horrible of sinners, in their last moments at least, repent and throw themselves on God’s loving mercy.

Secondly, excommunication is not a sentence to Hell.  Excommunication means that you may not receive the sacraments.  But think about how much harder it is to get to heaven without the sacraments!  The sacraments are the ordinary means of our salvation.  Christ Himself willed that we receive sacraments.  He gave them to us.  When you are excommunicated, you cannot receive Communion or go to confession.

How much harder is it to reach Heaven without the sacraments?   Lots.  How much easier is it to go to Hell?  Lots.

This is something that the divorced and civilly remarried had better start thinking about, especially if they are going about their business as if they haven’t placed themselves in real spiritual peril.  For example, every time they would go to Holy Communion, they would be committing the sin of sacrilege.  ”Sacrilege”… the improper or irreverent treatment of something sacred… in this case the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, God.  If that isn’t seriously bad, I don’t know what is.

Does that sound like something that you can do over and over again and still get to heaven?  Really?

The above goes for all of you who are in the state of mortal sin for any reason and are still trooping up for Communion as if nothing were wrong.

Having a great day yet?  Let’s make it even better.   You are all going to die someday and you don’t know when that will be.  When you die, you will go to your judgment and the verdict is eternal.  Get that?  Once given, it can never change.

Are you ready, or are there some things you need to get straightened out?

I turn now to something I saw at Fishwrap, where they shamelessly and scandalously promote the ordination of women.  Get this headline:

First woman priest ordained in New Jersey dies

First, she wasn’t a priest, wasn’t ordained.

Newton, N.J. Mary Ann McCarthy Schoettly was not known to brag, but many among the more than 150 who attended her memorial service Monday at Newton Presbyterian Church [How sad is that?  But remember... she was excommunicated.] said she had plenty to boast about.

One thing she could have trumpeted was that she had received all seven Catholic sacraments. [No. She hadn't.  It is a matter of wonder that Fishwrap publishes this rubbish without hesitation.] From her baptism in 1942 to her more recent reception of the anointing of the sick, she had made her first confession, first Communion and been confirmed in her youth. Later, she entered into matrimony.

But what set her apart from the others in the church was her ordination to the priesthood. [No, she wasn't.  She attempted something that was impossible and then simulated the celebration of the Eucharist, publicly, which is a horrible sin.] Schoettly was the first Roman Catholic Womenpriest from New Jersey to be ordained. [No.] Her [fake] ordination took place for the St. Mary Magdalene Community in Philadelphia in 2009.

Schoettly died July 22, the feast of Mary Magdalene. At the time of her passing, she had been co-presiding over the Sophia Inclusive Catholic Community, [sheesh] which meets every Sunday for worship and faith sharing in Sparta, N.J., and once a month in Morristown, N.J.

[...]

The assembly was encouraged to participate in the Eucharist by joining the celebrant in the words of consecration. Following the opening hymn, “All Are Welcome,” Corso repeated the welcome when it was time “for all” to come forward and receive the gluten-free bread and alcohol-free wine.

[...]

If you have the stomach to, read the rest of this goofy but tragic business over there.

Remember: Those who attempt ordination like this, to the diaconate or priesthood, incur the censure of excommunication.  Any attempt to celebrate the Eucharistic Sacrifice, Mass, by someone not truly ordained to the priesthood commits a delictum gravius. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 2008 decree confirms that these “attempted ordinations” are invalid.  Cann. 1378 and 1443 apply to those who participate in these fake ordinations.  Those involved are automatically excommunicated.

As faithful Catholics we hope for the salvation of this poor deluded soul and for the conversion of all those who are set on that same path.  It is a horrible thing to be excommunicated and to die excommunicated.

Now that you have, hopefully, been frightened about Hell, stop and say a prayer for the soul of poor Mary Ann, who died recently.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord…

Fishwrap closed the combox on that entry. Wisely. I shall turn on the moderation queue.

Finally,

GO TO CONFESSION!

INTERNET PRAYER UPDATE: Tagalog AUDIO added (Klingon on the way)

I am delighted to report that a reader sent me a recording of the now well-known “Internet Prayer” in Tagalog.

It makes my day when I get recordings of native speakers reading this prayer.  It really makes my day when I get new language versions.  And it super really makes my day when yet another diocese has approved a translation.  Yes, that happens.

Here is the Tagalog version.

FILIPINO (TAGALOG) 
LISTEN

Isang panalangin bago pumasok sa internet:

Diyos na makapangyarihan at walang hanggan, na lumikha sa amin ayon sa Iyong imahen at nagtagubiling hanapin ang lahat ng mabuti, totoo, at maganda, lalo na sa  banal na persona ng Bugtong Mong Anak, ang aming Panginoong Hesukristo, nagsusumamo kami na Iyong tulungan, sa pamamagitan ni San Isidro, Obispo at Doktor, sa aming mga paglalakbay sa internet na akayin lamang ang aming mga kamay at mata sa nakalulugod sa Iyo at pakitunguhan nang may habag at tiyaga ang lahat ng kaluluwang makikilala. Sa pamamagitan ni Kristong aming Panginoon. Amen.

By the way, I hope to have an audio version of Klingon soon.

I am waiting for a translation in Japanese. I welcome other language submissions. Help is appreciated.

I would also very much like a video of the prayer in ASL, American Sign Language and in other sign language versions.

Look at the different languages on that page (HERE). If you are a native speaker, please consider making a recording, including the title. You could probably make a voice memo on your smart phone and then email it to me. Use the link at the top blog menu to make contact.

Card. Pell: Holder of Vatican purse strings, celebrant of Traditional Roman Rite

CLICK ME!

Sandro Magister at Settimo Cielo has a piece about the ever more influential Card. Pell, who has control of Vatican purse strings.

Magister’s piece, in Italian, opens with a mention of the upcoming Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum 23-25 October. I am helping with a pilgrimage to Rome which will coincide with the event. Among other things, Card. Pell will celebrate a Pontifical Mass at the traditional parish Ss. Trinità dei Pelegrini.

In any event, Magister’s point is that Card. Pell is on the rise in Rome and he celebrates Mass also in the traditional Roman form.

It isn’t likely that Pope Francis cares one way or another about Card. Pell celebrating the older, traditional Roman Rite.  I, however, am delighted that he does.  When I visited the beautifully appointed Domus Australia in Rome, which while he was still in Sydney Card. Pell undertook to create from the old Marist college, I saw that the chapel’s side altars were equipped with altar cards and traditional books.  I visited the Domus Australia the last time I was in Rome.  HERE

Fr Z kudos to Card. Pell.

ACTION ITEM! Book from 5 Cardinals in defense of marriage and tradition

Click to PRE-ORDER

There is a book of great importance about to emerge.  It is available for PRE-ORDER at a substantial discount.  It will come out in October 2014, timed for the upcoming Synod of Bishops, which will tackle – inter alia – Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried.

CLICK HERE

(Don’t hesitate, just click.  The UK link is coming soon, as is Kindle, I’m sure.)

I know quite a bit about this book, as it turns out.  The “five Cardinals” mentioned in the blurb, below, are going to please you when their names are revealed.  The other scholars involved are also top-notch.

The book will eventually be out in several languages.  It won’t be an easy read for some people, since a couple of the essays really drill into primary sources.  Do NOT let that discourage.  Punch above your weight, as they say.  You can do it.

YOUR TASK, however, is to pre-order this book NOW.  Make sure that Ignatius has a good response so they can have a big printing and wide distribution.

Here is the blurb:

In this volume five Cardinals of the Church, and four other scholars, respond to the call issued by Cardinal Walter Kasper for the Church to harmonize “fidelity and mercy in its pastoral practice with civilly remarried, divorced people”.

Beginning with a concise introduction, the first part of the book is dedicated to the primary biblical texts pertaining to divorce and remarriage, and the second part is an examination of the teaching and practice prevalent in the early Church. In neither of these cases, biblical or patristic, do these scholars find support for the kind of “toleration” of civil marriages following divorce advocated by Cardinal Kasper. This book also examines the Eastern Orthodox practice of oikonomia (understood as “mercy” implying “toleration”) in cases of remarriage after divorce and in the context of the vexed question of Eucharistic communion. It traces the centuries long history of Catholic resistance to this convention, revealing serious theological and canonical difficulties inherent in past and current Orthodox Church practice.

Thus, in the second part of the book, the authors argue in favor of retaining the theological and canonical rationale for the intrinsic connection between traditional Catholic doctrine and sacramental discipline concerning marriage and communion.

The various studies in this book lead to the conclusion that the Church’s longstanding fidelity to the truth of marriage constitutes the irrevocable foundation of its merciful and loving response to the individual who is civilly divorced and remarried. The book therefore challenges the premise that traditional Catholic doctrine and contemporary pastoral practice are in contradiction.  [Remember: Liberals will say to us who defend tradition that we are conducting a war on mercy.]

“Because it is the task of the apostolic ministry to ensure that the Church remains in the truth of Christ and to lead her ever more deeply into that truth, pastors must promote the sense of faith in all the faithful, examine and authoritatively judge the genuineness of its expressions and educate the faithful in an ever more mature evangelical discernment.”
- St. John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio

Start ordering.  Order and then order some more.  When this book comes out, we want a torrent of copies absolutely everywhere.  You can bet that those who want to overturn our teaching and practice will be as active as little termites, chewing away at our foundations.  Don’t let them.  Get good information into as many hands as possible.

Trust me.

Dust up in Paraguay

At Pewsitter, this headline caught my eye:

Accused Scranton priest sent to faithful thriving Paraguayan diocese whose bishop corrects gays and liberation theologists. Vatican investigates. Bishop defends priest. Cardinal suspends bishop then faints.

That sums it up.

Well… not quite.

I have followed only in a distracted way what is going on in the Diocese of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. Some will suggest that the doings there are yet another example of how much Pope Francis hates traditional expressions of Catholicism, wants to destroy Summorum Pontificum, etc. A closer look shows that there are some other factors.

Here is a version from UCANEWS, which gives a swift overview of the situation. See if you can identify in the account, below, the elements of the headline, above.

Vatican suspends ordinations at Paraguayan diocese

The Vatican has suspended priestly ordinations in the Diocese of Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, according to multiple media reports. Following an investigation of the diocese led by Cardinal Santos Abril y Castello, ordinations have been suspended until Pope Francis resolves difficulties in the diocese, reports indicate. No public announcement has been made about the reason for the action. The Vatican ordered an investigation of the diocese following the revelation that a priest who was accused of sexual abuse while serving in the US was serving as vicar general in Ciudad del Este. That report brought to a head tensions between the diocesan leader, Bishop Rogelio Livieres Plano, and other bishops in Paraguay, and complaints from lay activists about alleged irregularities in diocesan affairs. The accused priest, Father Carlos Urrotigoity [This guy? Again?]  —who is identified by the Scranton, Pennsylvania diocese as a “serious threat to young people”—was reportedly removed from his post as vicar general earlier this month, at the request of the apostolic nuncio in Paraguay, Archbishop Eliseo Ariotti. However, Bishop Livieres has defended Father Urrotigoity in the past, saying that thc charges against him are unproven. Defenders of Bishop Livieres have argued that the complaints against him have been fueled by liberal ideology. [NO!  How could that be? Urrotigoity aside (please) who could ever imagine attacks from liberals and leftists on traditional Catholicism?  Unthinkable!] They note that Bishop Livieres, a harsh critic of liberation theology and a strong supporter of the traditional liturgy, has led a strong revival of the faith in the Ciudad del Este diocese, pointing to increases in the numbers of priests, church weddings, and baptisms. [A revival of the Faith? In South America?  Anywhere?  Someone must be doing something wrong.  If not, someone still must be doing something wrong.] Cardinal Abril y Castello arrived in Paraguay to begin his investigation on July 21, and met with Bishop Livieres the next day. The busy schedule of the trip took a toll on the Spanish cardinal, and he was briefly hospitalized after fainting on July 24. But his condition was not deemed serious, and he resumed his duties promptly, finishing his week-long visit. Cardinal Abril y Castello —who is the archpriest of the Roman basilica of St. Mary Major, and was recently appointed by Pope Francis to chair the commission of cardinals supervising the Vatican bank—was joined in the investigation by Bishop Milton Troccoli, the auxiliary bishop of Montevideo, Uruguay. As he prepared to return to Rome, Cardinal Abril y Castello urged the faithful in Paraguay to respect the Vatican’s decision and await further announcements. Bishop Livieres said that he would obey directives from Rome, while insisting that he is innocent of any wrongdoing.

Some positive items

There are so many terrible things going on right now.  How about some good things?

Here is a great quote from St. Briget of Sweden, which I saw at The Back Of The World:

I Believe in Solemn, Reverent Liturgy Because…
…I believe that as Catholics, we need to act like we know this is true:

“One day, when a priest was celebrating Mass, I saw, at the moment of Consecration, how all the powers of heaven were set in motion. I heard, at the same time, a heavenly music, most harmonious, most sweet. Numberless Angels came down, the chant of whom no human understanding could conceive, nor the tongue of man describe. They surrounded and looked upon the priest, bowing towards him in reverential awe. The devils commenced to tremble, and took to flight in greatest confusion and terror.” ~St. Bridget of Sweden

And here is another great thing at Holiness In The Ordinary:

From the Little Soldier, to a newly ordained priest.

IMG345

It reads, “Father Noe. Congratulations! God called you to the sacred order of Priesthood. I know it is a hard life, but it is a good path to heaven.”

I have to brag just a bit. He just turned 7 last month. He had no help from me or from older brother and sisters. Dear Fathers, take heart, do not be discouraged. This little one loves you and prays for you.

That’s mighty fine.

Speaking of priests, this is from The Tenneseean:

Nashville adds 9 priests in historic Catholic ceremony

Nashville welcomed nine men into the Roman Catholic priesthood Saturday, setting a statewide record and promising relief to overworked priests ministering to some of the fastest-growing congregations in the country.

The gain is good news for the 67 priests already spread across 38 counties in Middle Tennessee. At least 70,000 registered Catholics call Middle Tennessee home, and that number is growing. The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University earlier this year ranked Nashville eighth in the nation for its rate of converts.

[...]

And then there’s this:

I will be celebrating the first Solemn High Mass in my parish for the Feast of the Assumption. Would you be so kind as to help promote it? I understand if you are not able.

Thank you!
