Bp. Schneider on the Met “Gay-la”

Fallout from the sacrilegious Met “Gay-la” continues.

Today a priest sent a link to an article by Marybeth Hagan at Crisis called “Catholicism and Celebrity Culture at the Met”. He quipped: “a clue to why the New York seminary is emptying”. I don’t know what the number of seminarians might be there, but I’ll bet the seminary is not exactly bursting.

I just read in an interview by One Peter Five with the great Bp. Athanasius Schneider (BAS):

MH: The Vatican recently decided to loan many sacred vestments and other sacred items to a secular fashion exhibition in New York which will also show clothing for a female priest, a female bishop, a female cardinal, and even a female pope. Is such a decision on the side of the Vatican not confusing the sacred with the profane and even the cause of moral and spiritual confusion of the faithful?

BAS: Such an action is clearly a profanation of sacred things, which were blessed for the exclusive worship of the true God, the Most Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. One can’t help being reminded of the profanation of sacred objects in the Old Testament by King Nebuchadnezzar (cf. Dan. 5:2). However, “God is not mocked” (Gal. 6:7). The following words of God through the mouth of the prophet Daniel are quite applicable to the mentioned episode of profanation of the sacred vestments, consented to by a Vatican authority: “You have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood, and stone, which do not see or hear or know, but the God in whose hand is your breath, and whose are all your ways, you have not honored. Then from his presence, the hand was sent, and this writing was inscribed. And this is the writing that was inscribed: Mene, Tekel, Parsin” (Dan. 5:23-25). If the prophet Daniel were to live today and were to know of the mentioned profane use of sacred vestments, he doubtlessly would direct the same words to those people, who consented to such a profanation or collaborated with it.

    Indeed, Bishop Schneider sees the writing on the wall! A most wise shepherd is he.

    Bp. Schneider spoke today at the Rome Life Forum. His opening words were: “Where there is no battle, there is no Christendom.” https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/bishop-schneider-answer-to-a-heretic-pastor-with-the-constant-unchanging-te.

    God have mercy on us and on the whole world.

    I think it is sort of difficult to miss what is going on. I really do not think it takes profound wisdom or
    serious discernment.

    The damage is also impossible to miss.

    Catastrophic comes to mind.

  5. Benedict Joseph says:

    It is true. Simply true.
    That this is not widely perceived — or worse ignored — by those with responsibility reveals the nature of the beast.

    Although I have a dear friend who is in the fashion world in Milan, I confess to knowing nothing at all about it. I’m more comfortable in camos than brocade and lace. But I admit that I know nothing whatsoever about what this Met Gala was supposed to be. I think it could have been a big mistake. I am confirmed in my opinion when I hear the banal comments of the prelate of NYC on his ego-driven radio show today. When you believe in nothing, you’ll say anything.

    Too harsh? Maybe … but fair.

    I actually believe in what I do as a pastor, and I’m doing what I do on principle, and I’m not playing to the highest bidder.

    Fair enough. But it does take guts to say it out loud where the elites can get their claws on you and rip you to shreds (metaphorically. For now.) And it takes true courage to keep on saying it when your bishop, or your own pope, calls you names repeatedly, and insinuates that you are not a good Christian, that you don’t have love in your soul, that you don’t know Christ, etc.

    I’ve been getting myself into major trouble lately: http://tradcatknight.blogspot.com/2018/04/traditional-catholic-writer-chris.html

    I’m fairly recently divorced and am dating the mot attractive woman you can imagine 16 years younger than me–I already have five kids and a grandson, who I baptized myself. This woman is 29, and is ready for babies, which I am good at providing. But my main concern, believe it or not, is the Church–and it’s ability to administer salvation; it’s imperiled, and imperiling souls.

    [If you are thinking along those lines, yes, you are getting yourself into trouble. You should review my posts about indefectibility HERE or find materials elsewhere. Then, man up. Christ’s promises are true and He didn’t promise us an easy road.
    On the contrary.]
