As a mere MC, he was certainly in the thick of everything - either at or near the center of every stage. Clearly, the rites he managed needed reforming.

An excellent Papal Master of Ceremonies. He died in 1967, could the beginning of the disintegration of the Liturgy have hastened his demise. God Grant him Eternal Rest! Monsignor Guido Marini was born the year the Council ended. If given full liberty, Guido Marini would be another Papal Master of Ceremonies for the glory and honor of God, like this Cardinal. But sadly Bishop Francis prefers the banal. Of course under the false modernist pretense of all for the people. Which=nothing for God.

I'm still waiting to find out why Pope Paul VI felt the need to auction the Tiara and give the money to the poor (which lasted about 1 day and now no Tiara) because Jesus was about love.

I'm also trying to understand why I was told with today's homily in a N.O church that Quote: According to Vatican II, Jesus gave a new covenant with the people, ALL the people, and when seeing Abraham, Moses, at the table but I may not be allowed in, because the first may be the last, and the last may be the first, since Jesus is love, and anyone who loves G-d and has a relationship with Him, then they will get in. UNQUOTE.

So, I'm sitting there and thinking: New agers love the earth and universe and feel love of the Maker, but many don't believe in Jesus or the baptism of sins, or confession. Buddhists strive to feel one with the universe, be monks, leave earthly things behind, to touch the source, guess we'll be seeing them at the table, and muslims who love Allah, a devote a whole lot of time and effort, well, I guess according to the new Francis=Paul VI we'll be seeing them also.

My question as I sat in the pew became: Why am I here? Why am I catholic? Why not just love G-d on my own?

Thank you SO much Vatican II and dribbling down Jesus's entire existence down to love, when there are plenty of don'ts in his words on how to live life. The New Testament became a 2 word slogan for Paul VI. Jesus loves. In the 60s the baby boomer generation took that for gospel and ran everything under it.

This is why we won't hear any words about the killing of the Coptic Christians by the Vatican. The other side loves G-d too.

Yes, and that still sounds like one of the less offensive (to God, and to Catholics) homilies, by NO standards! Which is why it's imperative not to assist at NO Masses - lest one wants to risk the loss of faith. (Or, in the best case, sit through the 'Mass' - or rather, community service - seeping with anger and outrage, and full of uncharitable thoughts. I rarely remember any NO service that was not a proximate occasion of sin.)

The military man on the first picture was Francisco Franco, who saved the Church in Spain in 1936.
