3 thoughts on “This “Catholic” Diocese Is Openly Helping Catholics Leave The Faith

  1. (@ 5:10 ff especially) Funny, but one who has NEVER stopped believing in —and still spends time before —the
    Eucharistic/ Real Presence of Jesus in the Tabernacle or Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament would EVER think
    this way! In 700AD Berenger of Tours was one of the first to publicly doubt the Real Presence ( . . meaning the
    bread and wine becoming the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ at the words of consecration at Mass by
    the Priest). Beginning in 1248 the reigning Pope kept a close eye on Julliana of Cornillion, of Belgium (Liège),
    who at age five began receiving messages from Our Lord, about establishing a feast in the Church of His Body
    and Blood. She was raised by Benedictine Nuns eventually becoming responsible for the community’s finances,
    for which she was falsely accused and expelled (and later exonerated). The messages from Our Lord continued
    through out, which she later shared with a hermitess (Beguine?), Eva of Liège. Meanwhile, a visiting Priest from
    Prague, visiting Italy (Bulsena ? ), who had doubts about the Real Presence, experience Blood flowing from the Host he had just consecrated during that day’s Mass.The Blood soaked the corporal on the altar, even spilling off the altar onto the flagstones of the floor. [I’m only giving highlights] The Pope “got wind” of these events and told “Perter of
    Prague” to meet him (the Pope) in Orvieto, at the “bridge of the sun”, and to bring with him the Bloodied corporal.
    When met, the Pope immediately prostrated in profound adoration before the Blood. Subsequently, the Pope, still
    keenly aware of the messages given to Juliana, composed the Bull delineating the Truth and the now-to-be-
    instituted Feast of Corpus Christi (Body and Blood of Christ). We’re in the year of 1272 ( . . 74?). A young Dominican
    Monk, Thomas Acquinas, was given the task of composing the liturgy for this new Feast, plus hymns which we
    still sing during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Our Parish of the Catholic Parish of Benedict XVI’s
    Ordinariate of the Chair of St.Peter (Calgary, Canada), did a “full blown” procession with the canopied Monstrance
     —incense, candles, red-and-white-clad servers, hymns (including those of St. Thomas Acquinas) ‘n all, up the
    sidewalk and street of two blocks of Inglewood quarter of Calgary. But the unblief didn’t stop. During the Protestant
    Revolk 300 years later, a book circulated detailing 200 THEORIES of SYMBOLISM applied to the bread and
    wine used during Mass.

    But Catholic Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament didn’t stop either!

    Why these German latter-day Lutherans insist on fooling themselves is beyond this retired Catholic janitor. Mind
    you, I’m probable the only janitor with a BA in philosophy and English. “Big deal, Bob! . . you just BE a GOOD
    Grandpa for your Grandkids.”

    1. POSTSCRIPT: St. Thomas composed the liturgy for Corpus Christ next to his Crucifix, Who [ the Crucified Person on that crucifix] spoke to him when the work was completed, “Thomas, well done, my own. What do you desire?” To which Thomas replied, “Only You, Lord, only You.”

      I don’t know why ANYBODY bothers with these sleek, well-fed, fashionably-dressed, smiling renegades.
      Turn off the digital attention and they’ll be stuck talking only to themselves.

      1. POSTSCRIPT #2: I mean, contrast their “cancer-in-the-body-politic” this-worldly contagion, with the true,
        completely lived-out office of a Venerable Pius XII:
        “Again and again, he emphasized that he felt responsible before God for every soul.
        AMID SHATTERING EXTERNAL STORMS, he was indefatigable in caring for the eternal salvation
        of every hard-pressed Christian. His pastoral love embraced the whole world. No less than any other
        year, 1958 was marked by and filled with work and worry but every morning still began with the Sacred
        Sacrifice at the altar, which unfailingly gave the exalted [ not SELF-exalted, but by Christ Himself! ] celebrant
        new strength and energy.” —His Humble Servant, Sr. M. Pascalina Lehnert, ch.13, “Serviendo Consumata Est”, Transl. Susan Johnson, 1984, Sophia Press.
