AUSTRIA: Woman carried monstrance, read Gospel, blessed faithful on Corpus Christ

It is probable that widespread Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and many Masses coram Sanctissimo preserved Austria from the Protestant revolt, or so I have been told.
Now, it seems as if every story about anything Catholic that comes out of Austria … Continue reading

Pastor Iuventus on the appalling Met “Gay-la”

From the UK’s best Catholic weekly the Catholic Herald comes a commentary on the Met “Gay-la”.   Yes, we are still talking about that horrid blotch on the Church’s reputation, lest we forget.  My emphases and comments:

Sad: “Cranmer tables” in the Pantheon and many great Roman churches

I was in St. Peter’s Basilica the morning they tore out the Altar of the Chair.    There were people stationed to prevent anyone from taking photos.   Workers pried it apart with crowbars and hauled it off like so … Continue reading

You’ve been reading about the “Gay-la”, the “Fellini Rip Off”.
I wrote earlier that it was sure to have made all the Jesuits present swell with pride.  I then learned that Jesuit homosexualist activist James Martin, LGBTSJ, was there.

They have to make a joke out of everything. Weird blasphemy calls for reparation.

I now have quite a few emails in my box about the fashion “gala”… “gay-la”?… in NYC inspired by ecclesiastical dress of all kind, aided and abetted by “the Vatican”.

They … Continue reading
