Argentinian Archbishop: Mass Was Turned into a "Children's Party"

The Original Latin Mass which he calls “the most sacred rite of Catholicism" has been "manipulated," retired Archbishop Hector Aguer, 77, writes on InfoCatolica (June 23).

Improvisation was introduced and beauty abolished especially in sacred music, Aguer explains, "Gestures and behaviours such as shouting, applause and dancing, have been imposed, which are completely alien to the sacred celebration."

Francis fired Aguer ten days after he had reached the age of retirement replacing him with the Francis’ ghostwriter and kissing expert Victor Manuel Fernandez.

Aguer has personally heard fellow bishops say that there is "no longer any distinction between the sacred and the profane," and "that they were pleased with this development."

“The one-sided understanding of the Novus-Ordo Eucharist as a fraternal gathering has obscured its sacrificial nature,” Aguer writes.

He notices that Mass becomes sometimes “a show or little Children's party,” thus “faith is placed in parentheses and the reference to God is replaced by the centrality and the primacy of man."

Not only is it true what he is saying, but those same bishops (and priests) will at the same time lament the lack of priestly and religious vocations.

As important as this is, together with norm [or lack thereof] for the proper reception of Holy Communion, with the current events, these don’t appear to be the foremost.

Shepherds ought to be able to read the times and warn and guide their flock accordingly.

Aguer is a great man and a great bishop. He talks soundly about every issue. It's like in the US: in Argentina, there is great evil, but also great good, and when you get to know them, faithful argentinos give you the impression of something very deep.

Aguer is a great man and a great bishop. He talks soundly about every issue. It's like in the US: in Argentina, there is great evil, but also great good, and when you get to know them, faithful argentinos give you the impression of something very deep. You want to know how to confront those beasts that want to desecrate churches and sacred stuff? Watch videos of argentinos defending their cathedrals, praying the Rosario de Nuestra Señora, being spat at, standing sucubos geting naked and mimicking the sexual act, being spray-painted, and standing fast in their positions, without violence or insult, etc. Everything in front of police officers, standing there to defend the demons, un the name of the government. Here, watch this:

My dad said in the early 70s, at Easter, his church had a dancing nun in a tutu and holding a tambourine.
