The “New Rite of ‘Mass'” – even when valid, always illicit



Sunday in the Octave of “Corpus Christi”

The calamities that fell upon God’s chosen people of Old prefigured already those that will chastise the Church Militant for its necessary purification. “Now all these things happened to them in figure… they are written for our correction” (1 Cor. 10.11). Pope Leo XIII taught this in his Encyclical “Diuturnum illud” but with grave admonition: those chastisements are graver for us who have been raised to the dignity of a Christian (one who bears Christ in him; better, another Christ yet in its varying degrees of correspondence unto its perfection – beginners, the advanced, and the proficient or the more fervent) by grace merited at the prize of the Most Precious Blood of the Eternal Word-made Flesh.

As this day dawned but yet it was still dark, the light of the Eternal Word, in the lessons of the First Nocturn of the Office of Matins taken from I Kings 4.1-11 (DRV), gave us another glimpse of the mystery of God’s purifying hand now laying heavily on the Church. The chosen people were getting desperate in the face of invasion by the Philistines. They fetched for the Ark of the Covenant – that mighty visible form of the presence of the God of Hosts in the midst of His chosen people of Old. But God delivered His people into the hands of the enemies and let the Ark even as their enemies’ precious spoil! Why this tragedy? The High Priest, Heli, consented to the corruption of the people by condoning his erring priests in the mockery of the sacred.

The ‘mainstream official’ Church still has the Real Presence in cases when a still validly ordained presbyter validly confects also the Blessed Sacrament. But from the preceding lesson, bringing about the Real Presence VALIDLY (with the proper intention and with the prescribed matter and form – the formula of Consecration over the matter – of the Sacrament) in their midst is not enough. There’s still the crucial matter of bringing the Real Presence LICITLY : The priests who brought in the Ark were NOT PLEASING to God – they were far from the ideal of priestly ministry prescribed by God; so are the presbyters more so marked with a “new priesthood” (cf., “At the heart of the crisis – the priesthood“), donned in Lutheran/Anglican ‘liturgical’ costumes and presiding over a ‘table’ at a remodeled sanctuary after the fashion of a Masonic Lodge (cf., “The Catholic Sanctuary – II“) to offer a “new rite of worship” [the “new rite of ‘m(e)ss”” – the falsely claimed “Ordinary Form”] to the (g)od of their “NEW THEOlogy” (the non-Catholic god already unabashedly unmasked by Bergoglio ). To sum it up, even when the Consecration in this Vatican II-Church of the “Novus Ordo” (the “New World disorder”) is still valid it will always remain illicit – unacceptable before the true God of Catholic Tradition; St. Thomas, in his “Summa”, teaches that even when the Sacraments of heretics and schismatics are validly conferred [also in the ‘Black Mass’ of Satanists] they are illicit – the same for the apostates of the day; the Sacraments in their hands do not confer grace – which comes from God appeased, not mocked and enraged! This we are sure of from the preceding lesson by the Eternal Word – the ‘mainstream’, despite the palpably concrete mighty Divine Presence in their midst, was held easy prey to the powerful enemies, figuratively: eager priority of being ‘happy’ ‘in’-citizens of a “New World Order’ where there are no absolute truth-holders (the ‘pre-Vatican II Church’ clerics) and where Christ the King does not insist on His absolute dominion both in socio-economic and private affairs; willing ‘weak’ preys to cravings and lusts of the flesh: ‘I’m only human,’ ‘many commit the same,’ ‘it’s natural urge anyways;’ willing cohorts of the proud devil: who do not want to go any further in pressing the truth confronting them down to its logical conclusions or, having gone painfully through it even with only the first steps cry, ‘no, I will not submit, it’s too much!’

There are of course certain cases when souls – in invincible ignorance and of just dispositions – in the “Novus Ordo ‘Church’ still receive grace but not because of a “Novus Ordo” ‘Sacrament’ reverently conferred validly; the graces flow unto them from the “throne of grace” – from our traditional Apostolic altars. Yet, this mercy of God towards them does not stop there: “iustum dedu[c]it Dominus per vias rectas” (The Lord conducts the just man through the right ways, Wis. 10.10) – and so they are led out of the ‘Novus Ordo’.

Apostasy – the fundamental Truth of the Catholic Faith overthrown



Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity – “Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost” (Mt. 20.28).

The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reveals thus the true God – the fundamental truth of the Catholic Religion. As such, the Athanasian Creed (Office of Prime in the Roman Breviary for the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity and on Sundays after Pentecost) declares :

“Whosoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally.

Now the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the substance… ”

But Antipope Bergoglio, the “presiding” ‘Pontifex’ of the “New World Order” (the “Novus Ordo”) Vatican II-‘Church”:  “I believe… not in Catholic God, there’s NO CATHOLIC GOD.” – See more @ our post “Estote sapientes

Truth – first in the order of true Charity



The Descent of the Holy Spirit – “That the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father has given Me commandments, so do I” (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 14.23-31).

“Jesus Christ,” says St. Alphonsus, “was given to us as Savior and Master.” “Hence,” continues the great Doctor, “He came on earth principally to teach us, not only by His words, but also by His own example, how we are to love God – our Supreme Good.”

This day reveals to us that Powerful Love Divine Which worked in Him and will work in us – the Spirit of Truth: truth is the first in the order of embrace of the Supreme Infinite Good, “I will espouse thee to Me in Faith” (Hos. 2.20). It is the truth which tells us the real good we ought to desire and take delight in by possession; needless to say, it is also the truth that makes us see through the seeming and apparent good in evil to be teared up and discarded – hence the pains of sacrificing in true love: Divine Charity expurging from our hearts its petty ‘toys’ that fade into obsolescence and decrepitude, petty ‘toys’ that perish after they have wearied us. Such is the power of the blazing “charity of God poured forth into our hearts” (Rom. 5.5). “Send forth Your Light, that our hearts like Yours burn bright.”

To remain Catholic, stay with the ‘official Institution’?



Feast of St. Athanasius – Greek Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church known as “the Voice of Orthodoxy” when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost Arian. 

Against the schismatic Orientals (the self-styled “Orthodox”) who deny the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff over the Universal Church – in one of the numerous instances of forced exile of this venerable Patriarch of Alexandria, he appealed to the authority of Pope Julius who restored him to his episcopal see.

And now, when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost 1789 revolutionary perverts (cf., our post “The Year 1929“) – against the same pseudo-ecclesiology (false doctrine on the Church) current in the mainstream ‘Novus Ordo’ (New World Order) ‘Church’, as with the mainstream ‘SSPX’, which equates the Church to her institutions (churches, seminaries, monasteries and convents, schools, charities, etc.): “to remain Catholic is to stay with the ‘officials'”…

Sorrow for “a little while”



Third Sunday after Easter

“A little while, and now you shall not see Me… Amen, amen, I say to you shall lament and weep… and you shall be made sorrowful… So also you now indeed have sorrow…” (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 16.16-22)

“When therefore you shall see the ABOMINATION of desolation… standing in the holy place [the Sanctuary]… FLEE to the mountains… For wheresoever the Body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together” (Mt. 24.15-16; 28.29). “Greater ABOMINATIONS… men having their BACKS TURNED TOWARD THE LORD” (Ezech. 8.13).

Feast of the Annunciation


“Be it done to me according to your word.”

St. Therese: “Those souls are rare who don’t measure the divine power according to their narrow minds; people want exceptions… but God alone hasn’t the right to make any exceptions!”

A most blessed Feast!

New Life in Christ




“All power is given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Mt. 28.18).

We must bear in mind, says St. Thomas Aquinas in his “Meditations,” that our old life is one consumed in worldly standards and by an age-long experience in sin. But the new life is the heavenly life, renewed from day to day by the grace of God, “be renewed in the spirit of your mind” (Eph. 4.23) so that it stands up to the current of the ‘New World disOrder’, “be not conformed to this world” (Rom. 12.2). To them who “walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6.4) Christ bequeaths the Easter peace: “Pax vobis” (Jn. 20).

The “Easter Sacrament” (from the “Collect” of today’s Mass) is His mighty work in which is transubstantiated the bread into the Flesh of His Heart (as authentic Eucharistic miracles consistently offer) and the wine into His Blood but stops there when It is only validly done so; licitly (in that manner only pleasing to God), then this Sacrament ought to bring about this newness of life by transformation into His image, likeness, and life (subject to the pace of divine dealings with us and ours with His grace – not the instantaneous re-coating Protestant ‘Bible-only’ believers and like-minded ‘liberal free-thinkers’ erroneously imagine it to be).

A blessed Easter!

Yet Carmel lives on…



Feast of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“I looked, and behold Carmel was a wilderness…” (Jer. 4.26).

In giving an account of the first mission of the Discalced Carmelite Fathers in the Philippines, Fr. Sebastian (“A Man Shall Scatter,” 1957) wrote this in his foreword:

“Discalced Carmelites on the missions, how come? I thought…’ People are always asking.

On the Feast of St. Joseph (tomorrow’s) 1581, St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila), the reformer of Carmelites, earnestly approved a decree published by Fr. Jerome (Gracian), the Provincial. Thus it begins: ‘Inasmuch as Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… commanded His Apostles to go unto the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature… it is good for all of us, both religious and priests, who succeed the disciples of the Lord in the Ministry, to have always in our hearts this hunger and thirst for souls… And IT IS GOOD FOR US CARMELITES TO ATTEND most particularly and with great zeal to the salvation and TO THE EXTIRPATION OF HERESIES AND THE CONVERSION OF GENTILES, because we are called imitators and successors of the zealous Prophet Elias.'”

Could there be a contradiction between the  ‘Catholic’ spirit and the Teresian Carmel’s? “Today, we no longer understand ecumenism in the sense of a return, by which others [heretics and schismatics] would ‘be converted’ and return to being ‘Catholics’. THIS WAS EXPRESSLY ABANDONED AT VATICAN II [speaking of ‘ChurchES’ in GS and the false religions as also means of salvation in UR]” (‘Card.’ Kasper of the so-called ‘Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity’). Could the ‘Church’ and her ‘OCD religious’ abandon a doctrine of the Eternal Word? As was prophesied and prefigured of Old, the ‘institutionalist mainstream’ (those whose reality of the Church is equal to her  ‘official’ institutions) would depart and so the Prophet Jeremias continues: “…and there dwells not a man in them” (v. 29).

“One must first be a Catholic before he becomes a Carmelite” (Fr. Jerome of the Mother of God, C.D., in his retreat on the Rule of Our Lady).

But then, the good Lord did “not utterly destroy” (Jer. 4.27)…

“Cast out the bondwoman…”



4th Sunday in Lent

Cast out the bondwoman… (from the Lesson, Gal. 4.22-31).

Bergoglio to the schismatic Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo sect: “We are brothers and sisters in [c]hrist” (29 Feb 2016). But the Christ of Apostolic “Paradosis” (Tradition, cf., 2 Thess. 3.6): They that are not with Me are against Me (cf., Mt. 12.30). To justify their being with the Christ, the foul-mouthed ‘Pontifex’ insisted on equating them with the CHURCH: “today, the blood of many martyrs of all the ChurchES has become the seed of [Vatican II ‘ecumenical’] unity.” The Word of God belies him: “I will build My CHURCH…;” and that the blood of heretics and schismatics cannot be the blood of Christian martyrs: “…Nobody can be saved no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the #Catholic Church.” – The Eternal Word through Pope Eugene IV speaking “ex cathedra”, in the Council of Florence, Session 11, Feb. 4, 1442 – See more at: “The Great Tribulation

It is the “pseudo-[Catholic] Church” of Masonic and Communist infiltrators (cf., “The Year 1929″), that Apocalyptic “harlot…in purple and scarlet” (Apoc. XVII), that is ‘brother’ and ‘sister’ to these “sects of perdition” (2 Pet. 2.1).

Christian Redemptive Suffering




Feast of St. John of Matha




Lord, that I may see (Lk. 18.41).

The Holy Gospel for the past Quinquagesima Sunday announces the approaching Passion and Death of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is not the first time, though. Holy Church points out what St. Luke noted: the Apostles did not understand and the word was hid from them. The Apostles did not understand, imagining the Savior’s mission to be like another pursuit of an earthly conqueror which is for the rebuilding of Israel; they were dreaming only of triumphs and of occupying the first places in the kingdom. The Savior’s Passion and Death, then, was a cause of upset and scandal for them.

It is not by chance that immediately after the prediction of the Savior’s bitter Passion and a most humiliating Death on the Cross, St. Luke recounts the healing of the blind man of Jericho. We are blind to the mystery of the redemptive suffering by the Cross for it strikes us in what we hold most near and dear – takes away from us what is not God and that which does not lead to God:

Pride of self-excellence and sufficiency – we extol our reason, talents, abilities, good qualities, intelligence on a pedestal of superiority but for which God does not provide a good solid ground; God does not require it yet and with a position in the service of Him and His interests (in which the interest of eternal happiness of others forms part). The Apostles in the Gospel were not so much concerned with the interest of identifying the reestablishment of the kingdom of Israel with the establishment of the reign of God in individuals and societies than as with the great privilege of having a say in the affairs of the kingdom.

Purely material ideal of life – we dream of earthly prosperity the “New World Order” offers with its comforts and pleasures even unto luxury: the fine food for the lusts of the flesh.

These cry out by silent or outspoken complaints against the arrangements of Divine Providence especially communicated to us by our legitimate superiors who stand in the place of our true God; or, by thousand pretexts and excuses of subterfuge or subtly planned ways of subversion to pursue rather their own alternative designs which, because out of the way of God’s designs and order and devoid of the word of our legitimate superiors, must run into stupid inconsistencies by contradictions (the foundation of the religion of Antipope Bergogrelio, of the Fellayite ‘SSPXism’, and sedevacantism).

Let us not run the path of delusion. Can we be imagining that a new road is to built for us? Let us ask not to be exempted from this redemptive suffering of the Cross.
