Rockford Bishop Spreads the Disunity of Pastoral Unity.

Alternate Title:  Stop trashing Ad Orientem while Ignoring Communion in the Hand The hippies win again… or: When AmChurch Smacks Trads, it Does it With HARSHEST RIGIDITY Word is spreading today of discussion on the Bishop of Rockford, who wrote in his pastoral letter that: First, as I noted at that time, we are all…

And They Can’t Figure Out Why People Don’t Go to Mass

Among all the other things Mass is meant to be, it certainly stands out that it is meant for us, as the people of God, His children, to worship Him together. A priest and friend from an unknown parish, in an unknown American location sent this photo of a booklet found in the sacristy. These are…

Tempting Akita’s Fire: AmChurch Wreckovations, Hare Krishnas, and Tokyo St. Ignatius Removes Kneelers

Back in the 90s, I remember seeing images of then Archbishop Rembert Weakland donning a miter that bore an upside down triangle with a rainbow and a rainbow chasuble. During those years, it was common to hear rumors of Churches being “renovated” and the end result being white washed interiors and sanctuaries being leveled and converted…

Yes, it’s Bad, but Stop Belly Aching and Start Acting like a Soldier of Christ

It was a changing point in my life: “Lord, I feel really bad for you because I can leave this place, but You can’t!” I’ve never really looked at things the same ever since then. I had walked into a new parish to me in Michigan, one that was close to where I lived, and was…

ACTION ALERT! AmChurch Meat Grinder returns to Church of Our Saviour in New York

Over the decades, I have encountered the lame, stupid, and frankly tendentious “excuses” given by the apparatchiks of destruction, the front men for the insatiable beast of hell otherwise known as AmChurch (see, e.g. this post). The most inane tripe is passed off on the authority of a position to do the most treacherous things. For instance,…

Calling Jesus a Liar: Anglican Style (which is twenty years behind AmChurch fashion trends)

It was over twenty years ago, at a daily Mass in Cincinnati (the head of the AmChurch hydra), when I first heard someone try to pray the “Our Mother” prayer. They also liked to say the Suscipe with the fantasy option, ending it with the “her Church.” [that was the older english form at the time, so naturally it…

Pentecost and the Church of Tommorrow

One thing I notice that’s different today from when I was a kid is that there doesn’t seem to be anymore fiction geared towards tomorrow that isn’t dystopian. Sure, I was still a tyke when the movie Logan’s Run came out about a world in the future where people that hit thirty were euthanized, yet others ran…

Father Hardon: Stop Communion in the Hand Now!

  I often forget that the things that were common knowledge in the 90s are forgotten or ignored today. It becomes apparent when discussing communion in the hand, as I did the other day in the neopaganism article, or as I have in other contexts over the past few years, that people generally believe now that…

Truth of the Roman Rite Today. Laugh or Cry.

I’ve often been dismayed when visiting a town or city or knocked off schedule and unable to catch a recommended parish and have to toss my fate to the winds and catch Mass at whatever Church is available. It shouldn’t be like this, but I often have the feeling that I’m putting my spiritual life…

Who is Laughing Now? R.I.P. Rev. Richard P. McBrien

Years and years ago, I remember listening to Bill Marra and Fr. Micelli talk on the Catholic shows they did, and frequently they’d discuss Fr. McBrien and nearly every time the topic of his work came up, they’d compare the past of Notre Dame to what it had become. I miss those kinds of guys, with…
