Chicago Archdiocese: Hugs and Flying Hosts (Video)

Father Michael Pfleger of St Sabina Parish, Chicago, Illinois, presided on 6 June 2021 a sacrilegious Corpus Christi Eucharist during which masked participants exchanged big hugs as a "sign of peace."

One man came up to the meal-table. Pfleger hugged him and patted his shoulder. Unfortunately, during the ambiguous encounter, Pfleger's sleeve got caught on a mini canoe containing supposedly consecrated hosts, and pulled them down. The hosts tumbled around on the meal-table. Others fell on the floor. A co-presiding priest and Pfleger collected them like leaves in autumn.

Pfleger commonly makes up the words of consecration, and uses a wooden chalice and a canoe for the hosts.

Chicago's Archbishop Cupich who presides and promotes sacrileges but cracks down on the Roman Mass, is happy with this.

And anyone who believes the NO shows proper reverence to Our Lord is welcome to watch this video again.

This is not the Novus Ordo.

It sure is a result of it! Couldn't happen anywhere else.
Pieter Wycoff
@Adrien Then what exactly is this monstrosity 'supposed' to be?
Adrien
Fr Pfleger is obviously not following any Ordo. I assume that you know what that word means. He just has his own liturgy without a pre-written support... at least for that part.

I have already seen the video and understand what Ordo means. However whatever Pfleger was doing (and I agree it was akin to a circus), I’m also quite sure that many in attendance expected to be at a Mass where the Host was going to be validly confected. The fact that something like this can be orchestrated and those in attendance be duped into believing something else is further reason to …More

"Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not [hugged] in thy name? and in thy name have [followed CDC protocols]? and in thy name [made] many wonderful [boat-like ciboria]?' And then will I profess unto them, 'I never knew you:' "

Who is supposed to remove him? Francis B. will not do it, and Cupich neither.

Jan Joseph, how many priest you extirpated from the Church so far in Netherlands?

Seems Huggy-Wuggy Guy wasn't all that masked up. Neither was the celebrating ring-master of this circus. "masks save lies" ;-)

The masks are just further evidence of the double standards Church leaders impose today. We're supposed to accept "one" and only one form of the Mass. And THIS is it. We're suppsoed to accept " masks save lives" and they're imposed on many dioceses but THIS is how it's implemented. ....even regardless of any sacrilege, which certainly happened here.
Facts Not Lies
Masks save lives of those who make masks! (so, they really don't since they are already rich).

For the Words of Consecration, I watched the video Christmas Eve 2021 “Catholic Mass” in Chicago
and Fr Michael Pfleger said the Words of the Institution of the first Mass:
-This is My Body
-This is the Cup of My Blood
The Mass can not be invalid by changing the rite but only by either:
Removing the Words of Consecration -This is my Body - This is my Blood or -This is the chalice of my Blood. …More

Removing the Words of Consecration -This is my Body - This is my Blood or -This is the chalice of my Blood.

Like saying '' this represents my body'' would be absolutely invalid.

Not having genuine bread or wine.

The absence of a priest or bishop¹.

Not having the intentional context of a Mass, that mostly means that an accidental Mass can not happen.

When the priest/bishop loses the ''Mark'' that was printed on his Soul at the time of his Sacerdotal Ordination². This can only be achieved by joining the church of Satan³.

When the Son of God knows that the Transubstantiation would be followed by a massive number of sacrilegious receptions of the Divine Host. On such occasions He does not come on the altar.

@Adrien. Pfleger's consecration was definitely invalid.
In the video that you cited above, Pfleger says: "the lasting covenant" (instead of "eternal covenant") and "for you and for all people" (instead of "for you and for many"). These are huge differences in the theological meaning of the words.
St. Pius V said the following in his Papal Bull De Defectibus:

Saint Pius V in De Defectibus is not that radical, not that precise, and not wholly pertinent outside the Ancient Roman Rite.
''V - Defects of the form
20. Defects on the part of the form may arise if anything is missing from the complete wording required for the act of consecrating".

Notice that he doesn't say WILL ARISE.

''V - Defects of the form
20. Defects on the part of the form may arise if anything is missing from the complete wording required for the act of consecrating".


Notice that he doesn't say WILL ARISE.

Then there's the wording in the Ancient Roman Rite. Of course, the other Rites are not concern by this formulation.

De defectibus: "Now the words of the Consecration, which are the form of this Sacrament, are:

HOC EST ENIM CORPUS MEUM,
and HIC EST ENIM CALIX SANGUINIS MEI, NOVI ET AETERNI TESTAMENTI: MYSTERIUM FIDEI: QUI PRO VOBIS ET PRO MULTIS EFFUNDETUR IN REMISSIONEM PECCATORUM”

Again, there is more than one Rite in the Church!

For example, the Words of Consecration in the Byzantine Ukrainian Catholic Rite that are approved by the Catholic Church:

Pr: Take, eat, this is My Body, which is broken for you,
for the remission of sins.
R: Amen.

Pr: Drink of this all of you, this is My Blood of the New
Testament, which is shed for you and for many, for
the remission of sins.
R: Amen.

Pr: We offer to You Yours of Your own, on behalf of all
and for all.


1 Corinthian 11: 24-26 has another version: “Take ye, and eat: this is my body, which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me.
In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the New Testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me. For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come”.


I could go on, but you get the picture. A lot of wordings had been used, and many are today.

The Apostles and their successors didn’t want to recreate the Last Supper because inspired by the Holy Ghost, they knew that the Words of the Rite of the New Covenant are ‘’This is My Body” and “This is (the Cup of) My Blood”.

It implies that when a priest says these words, the Transubstantiation occurs at this very moment. Even before he starts the additional wording.

For the pro multis or pro omnibus, both can be used but in a time when the heresy of systematic salvation is on trend, I understand that some people want the pro multis in the Mass as a protection, but there are other occasions to announce the true Gospel.

Even if many will be deprived from the benefit of Salvation in Hell, the fact that the Work of Redemption is for everyone and that the Son of God suffers for all men is strongly et repeatedly affirmed in the Divinely inspired Holy Scriptures:

1 Timothy 2:5-6 “For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus: Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times”.

1 Timothy 4:10 “... we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”

John 1:29 “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”

1 John 2:2 "He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

1 John 4:14 “And we have seen and do testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.”

Anyhow, Fr Pfleger is obviously not using the Ancient Roman Rite.

He is using his own wording, he should use the New Roman Rite but he illicitly doesn't.

As we can see in the writings of the antiquity nearly everything was improvised around the Consecration before the coming of partial liturgical books. That doesn't mean that the Mass was invalid in the time of the early Church.

Saint Justin Martyr [100-165] in his First Apology wrote:

“And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs [letters] of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read…Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given….And this food is called among us Εὐχαριστία, of which no one is allowed to partake but the man who believes that the things which we teach are true, and who has been washed with the washing that is for the remission of sins, and unto regeneration, and who is so living as Christ has enjoined…For the apostles, in the memoirs composed by them, which are called Gospels, have thus delivered unto us what was enjoined upon them; that Jesus took bread, and when He had given thanks, said, This do in remembrance of Me, This is My body; and that, after the same manner, having taken the cup and given thanks, He said, This is My blood; and gave it to them alone.”

Going back to De defectibus:

If the priest were to shorten or change the form of the consecration of the Body and the Blood, so that in the change of wording the words did not mean the same thing, he would not be achieving a valid Sacrament.

I provided a good example for that in my post above:

1º Removing the Words of Consecration -This is my Body - This is my Blood or -This is the chalice of my Blood.
Like saying '' this represents my body'' would be absolutely invalid.


De defectibus continues with this important addition:

If, on the other hand, he were to add or take away anything which did not change the meaning, the Sacrament would be valid, but he would be committing a grave sin.

"What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ only when He Caresses us, and to be cold immediately once He afflicts us. This is not true love. Those who love thus, love themselves too much to love God with all their heart." St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Cassandra Laments
One hopes, literally for Christ's sake, that the Consecration is invalid, but that doesn't remove their intention to commit sacrilege or, at the very least, their willingness to go along with it. Hopefully, the speed at which the young Priest acted to pick up the Hosts will stand in his favour - he looks young enough not to know any better.
