Realizing the FSSP is still just this awesome. "when it was not difficult to see priests in their cassock kneeling in prayer, rosary beads in hand in Churh, always willing to hear confessions."

Realizing the FSSP is still just this awesome. "when it was not difficult to see priests in their cassock kneeling in prayer, rosary beads in hand in Churh, always willing to hear confessions."

Anyone wanting to see priests in cassocks, kneeling in paryer, just has to hang out in Church for a few minutes before or after Mass. As for confessions... those priests are quite blunt about it: being in a state of mortal sin is a sacramental emergency no different than a relative needing the Last Rites. One can call the parish office for an emergency confession day or night.

...though I'd rather not consider what kind of penance a tired, bedraggled preist will assign at 3am. :D

"Catechism, and not politics, took centre stage." ah... Ms. Cireneo may want to review her Catholic history on this point. ;-)

"it has become impossible to recognise herself in the Novus Ordo Eucharist".

With good reason. She isn't there. She isn't in the Usus Antiquior Eucharist, either. No one is, except Christ.

"and who received the following words of Christ..."

Correction: "who claimed they received the following words of Christ". Christ seems to spend more time chatting with various mystics these days then He did preaching on Earth.

"I will allow the earth to produce no more fruit."

How about vegetables? :P Would Christ punish the entire planet just because of a valid, if inappropriate means of receiving the Eucharist among Novus Ordo Catholics?

Would He sit there in Heaven, stone-faced, watching people starve and die as "punishment" for supposed sins they didn't know even exist?

Ultra Violet Ahh. Perhaps it is time for less pontifical like sarcasim and open your windows and doors to see who may be tapping on it...... perhaps a few Christ likle lessons in being humble and non judgemental and scripturally and prayerfully sound might be a start

" pontifical like sarcasim" :D There is nothing Pontifical about my sarcasm, except when it's directed at the Pontiff.

" in being humble and non judgemental" -gotta love that advice coming from a turkey accusing me of " pontifical like sarcasim"

Motes and beams, G. W., Motes and beams. Unlike you, I don't pretend to be humble or nonjudgemental nor do I hypocritically suggest being so to …More

Motes and beams, G. W., Motes and beams. Unlike you, I don't pretend to be humble or nonjudgemental nor do I hypocritically suggest being so to others.

If you want to argue my comment is not scripturally sound, the you just go right ahead and try. ;-)
Colossal Apostle
Communion in the hand is an abomination. Watching Catholics walking up to receive Him [Jesus] with the same reverence as they would a Ritz cracker. It’s no wonder 70% of “Catholics” do not believe in the real presence.

That was so lovely! Thank you Gloria tv News, and Veronica Cireneo. Father forgive them for they know not what they do.
