Picking Up from When I Was 18
About Hyssopo In The Byzantine Rite

Hyssop is a Mint Like Plant, from the Mint Family.
It was after the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in January of this year at Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Astoria, Queens, NY, when the Blessing of the Waters occurred. Also, herbal essences are added to the water.

I received the Blessing with Water with the Priest, using Hyssop, which is used to remind us of our Baptism. I…

"The Martyrs Wave of Peace"

“The Martyrs Wave of Peace”

At Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens, whenever it comes time for The Sign of Peace before Holy Communion, especially during the weekday, People simply wave their hands to each other, if only because there are so many people spread out around the Church.

This never happens in the Traditional Latin Mass nor in the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.

What next, The Ballpark Wave?

In The Persecution of The Franciscan Friars of The Immaculate

Yanks? It Figures as to WHY a Local “Molehill” was turned into a Vatican Mountain.
It was revealed that the Dissidents in the Order of The Franciscan Friars of The Immaculate, had come from “The Good Ol’ US of A”, a Modernist Land of Very Little Milk and Honey, but land of ” Liturgical Muzak” which was exported in many languages to many lands, causing for massive indigestion, the Land where an…

The Persecution Of Faithful From Within

The Franciscan Friars and Sisters of The Immaculate are Faithful to the Magisterium of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, so WHY, a Growing Religious Order such as this, being subjected to profuse persecution of Vatican Modernistas?

Did they run afoul of the Congregation For The Preservation Of Musical and Liturgical Novelty? Did they fail to sing “Table Of Plenty” or “All Are Welcome” at…

The Ordinary Form Mass and How It Should Be Done

Forget “The 4 Hymn Sandwich”, as in reality, this is not really allowed by The Church. Considering the Banal “Quality” of what is being sung(Or Ignored, which is most of the time), it is time to get rid of such songs(Hymns are reserved for worshipping God, Not SELF), which are filler. These songs do NOT constitute Actual Participation in The Mass. Rather, they constitute Distraction from the…

Somehow, Despite MTA Bus, I Made It To The 5:15PM Mass

The MTA Bus Company, which is a legalized form of Torment, calls itself a Public Benefit Corporation, where anybody but the Public, Benefits. If the Q60 Bus is any indication, one should bring plenty of Peptic Bismuth. The ride today was utterly nauseating. Two buses failed to materialize on the schedule, while a 3rd one showed up late.
Well, so much for public benefit due to damned inefficiency…

Tridentine Followed By Classical

The fact that I utterly DESPISE the Banal “Do I Not Love Me” Style of “Liturgical Muzak”, shouldn’t surprise ANYONE who reads these short essays. It should be noted that such “Music” inspires ANYTHING but Worship of The Triune Godhead. It does, however, inspire Brutal Critiques and Satirized Versions of the “Hymns”, to use that term rather loosely, which express my utter contempt for such Utter…
