I received some interesting feedback today from a reader in England:
From a reader…
Thank you very much indeed for The Divine Mass, today. I counted up to 50 “Virtual” Congregation Members, today.
You will be pleased to know that I followed (Verbatim) The Mass in my 1879 Missale Romanum. Probably the only time, since 1879, that this particular Missal has been used for such a Divine following of The Sacred Mysteries.
I noted the incessant interjections, at the beginning of Mass, by the clamour of The Civil Defence Alarms going off in your neighbourhood. [Yeah… that was a little distracting. As a result I started the “Iudica” psalm in the prayers at the foot of the altar. Ooops!]
This put me in mind of the incessant barrages against Holy Mother Church by The Dark Forces of this World, insistent upon disrupting and interrupting The Divine Mass. [There is a sort of “Lord Of The World” or “Children Of Men” feeling to it (the book, for the love of God, not the horrid movie).]
It was only yesterday that The British Government, within days of denying The Abortion Lobby permission to add on a Coda permitting women to “Self-Abort“ (without the necessity of two Doctors authorising such a dastardly action) during a Vote on The Virus Situation, did an “About Face” and permitted such an Action. [Don’t let a crisis go to waste.]
The Government agreed that: “It would be unreasonable to expect a pregnant woman to go out into a potentially infected locale in order to ask a Doctor for permission to Abort, and therefore risk infection. Therefore, for a period of two years, Self-Abortion (without the necessity of two Doctors authorising such) would be permitted”. [TWO YEARS?!?]
Mind you, The British Governement are not totally callous. They said that they would review this decision “in two years”.
What odds, one would ask, on The British Government reversing that decision in two years’ time, after permitting possibly millions of unborn Babies to be killed in the interim.
The totally, demonic, irony of the above, is that all this took place whilst the World and his mother are frantically trying to save millions of lives because of the Virus Pandemic. This includes, of course, The British Government.
The Prince of this World must be laughing all the way to the Bank.
The above follows very closely on The New Zealand Government’s decision to do almost the same thing. Except, there are no safeguards at all for the unborn in New Zealand. The Abortion can take place at any time, at the mother’s wish, up to AND INCLUDING Birth.
The Greatest Evil The World Has Ever Seen.
One is staggered at the TOTAL LACK OF COMMENT by any BISHOP, CARDINAL, or PRELATE, of The Roman Catholic Church, in relation to the above. [No prelate in England and Wales responded?]
Meanwhile, back to The Divine Mass, today.
Thank you, very much, dear Fr Z, for the ability to follow the progress towards Easter, to understand in greater detail Passion Week (which I believe was re-named Post-Vatican II to something less “nasty”), and to, indeed, encourage us to think much more closely on The Divine, and NOT on The Temporal.
As always, Thank You, dear Fr, for your Priesthood.
Wow. Alarming. I’ll bet Big Business Abortion is shoveling money around.
I also want to use this bad new to remind you that there is a Morning After Pill REVERSAL available.
What happens when women take the first abortion pill and then change their minds? THERE IS A WAY TO SAVE THE CHILDREN. Dr. George Delgado is on the forefront with his Steno Institute, named after Blessed Nicolas Steno, 17th century Danish scientist, physician and bishop. I know about this because of my work with Heartbeat International, who has taken over the network of doctors in these USA who will prescribe the Abortion Reversal Protocol that Dr. Delgado developed. It has been really successful. This guy is a hero.
However, I am glad to be of help with the live stream of the Masses.
