The Church of Vatican II expunged the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from the Mass.
This was part of a vast program of bombardment of sound Catholicism, which created immense problems in just a few years.
A few decades followed, and we saw almost everything bad under the sun punctually happening: from the dearth of priests to the
pedophile sodomite priest scandal, to the slow death of Christianity even in traditionally Catholic countries, to various scandals in the Vatican itself, including the “Gay Mafia”.
Today, the same Church of Vatican II thinks St. Michael the Archangel might come handy to fight the corruption.
They do not seem to remember this is the same St. Michael whose prayer they have – together with the other Leonine Prayers – eliminated from the Mass; they do not link their disappearance from the Mass with the problems that followed; nor do they appear to think about reintroducing them.
No, they put a statue in the Vatican Gardens and consecrate the Vatican to him; which must certainly have the same effect, eh? uh? no?
Now that‘s smart…
The American Catholic has this delightful video about that hideous fake Catholic, Nancy Pelosi.
The video has first an excerpt from a speech of the same Pelosi on the 6th May. If you go for a moment beyond the unspeakable smugness of the woman, you’ll notice that she says that her favourite word is… the Word and then she launches herself on a (most disgusting, coming from her) lecture about how “beautiful” the Word is (easy emotionalism) , and says that it, ooohhh, “contains everything” (more emotionalism) and that we must, ooohhhh, “give voice to the Word” and be judged according to how we do it in this life or in the next (and here she doesn’t even know how much she is right yet).
At a recent press conference, a CNS News journalist made reference to the 6th May smug fest and asked along these lines: “so when was the Word made flesh, was it at the Annunciation as the Scripture says or was it at the Nativity?”. Simple question, right? Well, the same woman you have just seen feeling oh so emotionally involved in her need to “give voice to the Word” and feeling oh so pure and beautiful whilst talking about it has the effrontery to answer “whenever it was (sic!), we bow our head when we talk about it….. in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that”.
This scarcely believable answer contains the following elements:
1) a refusal to admit that the Word was made flesh when Mary said her “Fiat” (or whereabouts), which doesn’t match with Pelosi’s ideology. She just doesn’t know when, poor lamb. The Word must have had some static noise at the time, or perhaps she was just so busy feeling smug that she didn’t pay attention.
2) a refusal to answer the question (“I’d like to talk about that in church” obviously not being an answer).
It gets even funnier as CNS news, not having had any answer, follows up with an email re-phrasing the question in: “Did Jesus have a right to life from the moment of conception?”. Frankly it doesn’t get easier or straighter than that. Once again, the answer is dodged with the usual shamelessness: “the speaker answered the question. Thanks” is the answer from her press office.
I do hope that, wherever she goes, nancy Pelosi will now be persecuted by questions of this kind. She will obviously not answer them, but it might take away some of the smugness we have seen in her 6th may speech.
