Picking Up from When I Was 18
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…

I Am Heading Westbound To E43

The Ordinary Form Mass on Venerable Archbp Fulton J Sheen Place, also called East 43rd Street, Lexington to 3rd Avenues on the Cross, is perhaps the Best Ordinary Form of the Latin Rite Mass in The 5 Boroughs, complete with Opening and Communion Antiphons chanted in Latin, Kyrie Sung in Greek, and Gloria sung in Latin, Stately Opening Hymn in English, Closing Hymn sung in Latin and the Beauty of…

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…

The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel(7/16/2014 on The Tridentine Calendar)

Since Yesterday was such a stormy day, replete with heavy rain, Lightning and Thunder, until 11:00PM E D T, I was not afforded Freedom to Travel.
But, I was free this Early Evening, so I headed to Holy Innocents R C Church on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue.
This, being The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the Tridentine Calendar, the 6PM Tridentine Latin Mass was a Missa…

The Persecution BY “The Church Of Nice”

The Persecution BY “The Church Of Nice”

Mr. Michael Voris, the Fearless Leader of St. Michael’s Media and Church Millitant.tv, coined the phrase “The Church of Nice”, because little of Substance occurs there.  The Liturgy is Banal and, perhaps too simplified. A Freestanding Altar, with the Priest facing “Liturgical West”, called in Latin, “Versus Populum”,  and the Offering Priest is often called “The Presider” or “President Of The…

For A 2nd Night NOT In “The Church of Nice”

For A 2nd Night NOT In “The Church of Nice”

For on this evening, I was NOT in a “Church Of Nice” Parish. For the Joyful Mysteries of The Rosary were recited along with Commentary as to which Mystery was Prayed. It was NOT “Machine Gun Speed” Style of Rosary. There were two Mantilla Wearing Women who served as Leaders and Commentators.
And the Blessed Sacrament was Exposed for Prayer. The “Tantum Ergo” was sung, as were all the responses,…

A Homily Not From ‘The Church Of Nice”

A Homily Not From ‘The Church Of Nice”

I am moving away from the “Wonderful World Of Rembertland” style of Homily, which is usually a variety where one hardly remembers anything about the lesson taught at Mass, but only snippets of Humour.
Such is the sad case of when the Ordinary Form of the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass, is utilised for some theme by whim. Whether The Theme is Entertainment, such as The Circus or The Celebration of…

Holy Innocents Update From New York City

The Proposal to merge Holy Innocents with St. Michael’s on the West Side a few blocks away, makes sense as it would preserve the Tridentine Latin Mass and put the combined Parish of St. Michael’s Holy Innocents under the capable hands of The Redoubtable Father George William Rutler of Impeccable Orthodoxy and Impeccable Roman Catholic Credentials.
It Holy Innocents and St. Michael’s were merged…
