The Fruits of Vatican II

From yesterday’s SSPX communique’

“doctrinal mutism is not the answer to this “silent apostasy”, which even John Paul II denounced already in 2003.”

[...]

amidst a Church in crisis and a world which distances itself farther from God and His law with each passing day.

[...]

waiting for the day when an open and serious debate will be possible which may allow the return to Tradition of the ecclesiastical authorities 

If I understand correctly, the chap in white with the long hair is a Catholic priest, and this horror was set in scene in a real Catholic Cathedral.

In other words, this is not a movie, or a joke. This is supposed to be the real thing.

Welcome to the Church of Paul VII.

In case you want more, here is another video about the same exercise. Note how after (or during?)  the “concert” what is supposed to be Holy Communion is distributed among the “faithful”, leaving one in no doubt that this is not a joke or a videomontage, but a bona fide Vatican II mass. The priest is  (cela va sans dire) in full communion, and no doubt he has the bishop’s blessing.

After this beautiful “outpouring of the Spirit” (both videos from Catholic Church Conservation) , excuse me if I terrify you with the shocking images of the schismatic Mass of a splinter group of disobedient priests, who have the unspeakable arrogance to doubt all the wonderful things the Spirit is doing for the Church.

Thankfully, the bishop clearly approved the mass (or attempt of it) of the first two videos, and I am glad to inform you the splinter group is not in full communion, and the Holy Father is allegedly very cross with them. They are disobedient, you see.

Tsk, tsk…

Perhaps they should buy an electric guitar and start staging such “masses”?

This would mean they are obedient to the Pope, surely?

Forgive my stupidity, I had failed to understand that the SSPX is the real problem afflicting the Church today. The only words I can say to my defence are:

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

  1. Saint Michael the Archangel,
    defend us in battle.

    Amen!

  2. This abomination of an illegal reactionary mass needs to be shut down. It is truly scandalous. Disobedient priests are doing a great disservice to the – what is the correct word? – “reform” of the Church. They really have to get over their outdated attitude of adoration and servility before their experience of a “divine” presence in the bread and wine.

    Rupture is now called Reform. Everything but speed and name stays the same.

    • And no, I did not watch the first two videos – it would not be good for my health.

      As you say: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle…

    • Ah, at this point I suggest you really don’t do it… ;)

    • I fully agree, Catocon. It shows such disrespect for the work of the “Spirit”. I have seen the third video and there was not a guitar in sight, not even an acoustic one!

      One can one be pastoral in such way?!

  3. Goodness. I have only attended one parish for all my time as a Catholic (Novus Ordo), and I mutter in my tent about (in no order) the ‘handshake-of-peace’ the use of lay and female lectors, the muddy translations of even the Latin of Paul VI , communion in the hand, the altered Canon of the Mass, the loss of the Confiteor, – need I go on – but this is utterly, utterly appalling. When I was a little boy, my family went to ‘broad’ Church of England services and I complain because I can’t tell much difference between the Broad Church of England and my Novus Ordo Mass, which I took as a sign of grave sickness in the Church, but this utterly horrified me. Is this sort of thing widespread?

    • It is not widespread in this shocking scale, and in fact whenever it happens you will find a vast echo in the Internet.

      What is absolutely disgraceful here is that this is not something made on the sly in some provincial church, perhaps hoping the bishop doesn’t mutter too loud; but something made in a Cathedral, of which the bishop must carry direct responsibility.

      I have no words (no polite ones, anyway) to say what I think of these people (both the priest and the bishop). There is one place fitting for them, and it’s called the stake.

  4. It’s appalling, isn’t it? I quite agree a trip to an auto-da-fe would do this lot an awful lot of good!
