Outrage in Malaysia

SACRILEGE: Profanation of the Eucharist in Malaysia: Undercover Muslims spit out Host

19 comments:

  1. This repulsive behavior is deeply offensive. Unfortunatly this kind of abuse (and worse) is all too common in Muslim countries. Respect is a one way street there. The demand respect in Christian countries but bristle at any suggestion that this needs to be reciprocated.

    Maybe it's time to restore the proper function of the ostiaries and the true meaning of Mass of the Faithful?

    Catholic countries used to punish outrages like such (and even smaller, like profaning the Cross) by death. And that's rather a gentle treatment.

    But now, in the days of aggiornamento worst crime possible remains unpunished as a rule, not only in Malaysia.

  3. Perhaps all of us in the 12 million rosary crusade could add another intention: that of making reparation to God for such profanation of His Person in the most Blessed Sacrament. Adding that intention would not in any way dilute the primary intention. (The essential element of the Fatima message is, precisely, REPARATION!)

    I would suggest also praying often the reparation prayer taught by the angel: "Most Holy Trinity,...."

  4. you know they had this over at catholic forum and some of the responses I got were certainly repugnant, like we shouldn't do anything because "Jesus is big enough to handle himself." Albeit this is true, but this is a reflection of how irreverant and complacent in our Faith. We need to look into the mirror and see whether we are truly successors to the apostles, martyrs, and saints if we just let this happen.

    Time end the era of inter-religious dialog and ecumenism.

    It's great to respect other religions, but that's where it should stop.

    No more ongoing endless dialog, accomodation, prayer services a la John Paul II and his Assisi I & II meetings, no more sending congratulations and greetings to Muslims at the end of Ramadam, no more greetings to Buddhists or Hindus at their pagan commemorations,
    and no more bending over backward to appease the Jews or the Protestants.

    Being respectful of religions is great. But not at the expense of appearing as religious weaklings who allow all kinds of abuse and disrespect to us.

    John Paul II did tremendous disservice to the Church with his over emphasis to ecumenism, accomodation to Jews, and inter-religious dialog and prayer services with every religion in the world.

    Time to end this nonsense now.

    Please make an act of reparation to Jesus in the Holy Sacrament and pray for the Muslim's conversion; pray that God would be merciful and spare them from Hell, especially those who desecrated the sacrament.

    "Act of Reparation to the Most Blessed Sacrament"


    With that most profound respect
    which divine Faith inspires,
    O my God and Saviour Jesus Christ,
    true God and true man,
    I adore Thee,
    and with my whole heart I love Thee,
    hidden in the most august Sacrament of the Altar,
    in reparation of all the irreverences,
    profanations, and sacrileges, that I,
    to my shame, may have until now committed,
    as also for all those
    that have been committed against Thee,
    or that may be ever committed for the time to come.
    I offer to Thee,
    therefore, O my God,
    my humble adoration, not indeed,
    such as Thou art worthy of,
    nor such as I owe Thee,
    but such, at least,
    as I am capable of offerings;
    and I wish that I could love Thee
    with the most perfect love
    of which rational creatures are capable.
    In the meantime,
    I desire to adore Thee now and always,
    not only for those Catholics
    who do not adore or love Thee,
    but also so supply the defect,
    and for the conversion of all heretics,
    schismatics, lebertines,
    atheists, blasphemers,
    sorcerers, Mahomedans,
    Jews, and idolaters.
    Ah! yes, my Jesus,
    mayest Thou be known,
    adored, and loved by all
    and may thanks be continually given to Thee
    in the most holy and august Sacrament!

    (http://www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?p=1048)

    Pray for that particular Catholic Church and Holy Mother Church in Malaysia.

    "...Be Thou King of all those still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them all into the light and Kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards that race, once thy chosen people. Of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life, Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm...."

    (From the Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: Act of Consecration, 'Blessed Be God', pg. 366, copyright 1925.)

    St. Michael and St. Joseph pray for us.

    Anthony, they're neutralizers and you can thank the EWTN/Catholic Answers crowd for this wimpism.

    Anon 16:19 - I'm with you. Enough of this nicey-nice nonsense. We've turned into a church of lazy, good for nothing, do nothings. Are we or are we not the Church Militant?

    Disgusting, imagine an "undercover Catholic" doing such a thing during Muslim service..It is unthinkable...I am sure Allah does not look down on this behavior with love and appreciation..They are hurting their own salvation with this radical obsession with other faiths. It is sick.

    MOURNING
    BELLS

    The bells
    They stopped years ago
    At the Consecrations
    Of many a Mass

    Where kneeling down
    Their Savior adore
    The people said "that
    We'll pass."

    And now at six
    The happy-hour
    When the Angelus
    Used to chime

    There are no bells
    To remind the people
    Pray your souls
    To prime

    And in the night clubs
    Dancing till dawn
    The people sin
    No regret

    And now at six
    The mourning hour
    Bells die with each passing
    Minaret.

    In reparation for the outrage, Leontyne Price sings Panis Angelicus by Cesar Frank.

  11. So much desecration for a miserable kiss to their Koran. True ecumenism has little to do with what some clergy has done so far.
    However, the Body of Christ is also desecrated within the realms of the Church with communion in the hand, lack of devotion, Eucharistic ministers, and priests giving communion like candy.

    I just read a very good, although relatively short, book on the life of El Cid, who fought the Moors (the Spanish term for African Mohammedans) at the end of the first millennium. The book does a pretty good job of illustrating why the mixing of Moslems and Christians just doesn't work - then and now. Sooner or later, the radical call for the spread of Islam pushes all of them to either support or suffer the consequences of opposing the radical actions of their own kind, and being Moslems first, they will overwhelmingly choose their own religion. Then it gets more and more radical, until eventually, large-scale violence results. The two religions simply cannot coexist. Their means differ, but they are both called to convert the world. One must win and the other must be defeated. (Just for the record, our primary means is to offer sacrifice to God for their conversion, whereas their means move efficiently to conquest.)

    I see nothing much has changed since then.

    I have a neighbor whose daughter had to go to Italy in order to find a good missionary Order to enter (1998). There are very, very few in the post-Vatican II Church-and none in the USA- so she went to Italy, near Rome.

    The Order of nuns still has several hundred still in the mission field, and about 30 houses in Italy alone. Their missions are mainly in Africa (29 houses in 7 countries), and India (9 houses).
    Surprisingly, in the Motherhouse, there are close to 90 in community (this year 23 novices from 3 countries(mostly Italian girls), and 31 postulants(including 5 Americans and 2 from G. Britian).

    They still wear the traditional old "1950's" style nuns habit with large white wimple and black veil and dress. They wear a red cord around their waist and a rosary.

    The point of my story is that in 2001, they opened a convent/school/hospice for the poor in the Palestinian territory.
    Most of the people (99% Muslims), love the 13 nuns attached to the institution. But there is a radical bunch of young thugs who every day, just as the young nuns go out to minister to the sick in the streets spit on the large red cross which is sewn on the nuns scapular.
    The sisters just smile and keep walking. But every day it's the same little "spitting" ritual from this group of Muslims.

  14. I suspect Allah is actually looking up at this behaviour. ***

    "Allah" is Arabic for "God," and is not an exclusively Muslim name for the Deity. Gnostics and Marcionites more than suspected, but insisted, that the Creator God worshipped by Jews and Christians was an evil demonic entity.

    Anyway, it seems especially remarkable that this week we have seen three noteworthy reports of desecration of the Blessed Sacrament (Malaysia, Canada, Germany), all during a week of noteworthy events for Catholics (new encyclical, reorganisation of Ecclesia Dei, and Pres. Obama getting an audience with the Vicar of Christ, who invited him to rethink his hellish beliefs on the "life issues").

  15. Jordanes,

    Of course, you're right. I'd be indebted if you would delete my comment (I eschew blasphemy, even accidental), but it's at your discretion.

  16. Part of the problem that I think no one wants to address (or even acknowledge) is that options for dealing with this are limited. Christians in Muslim countries live every day as at best 2nd class citizens. They face constant harassment and even physical danger. Many have already received the crown of martyrdom.

    For all of the venting here and talk about "no more nicey nice" I have seen no real viable suggestions for a response. And that is I suspect for a good reason. There really aren't many out there.

    Lodging a formal protest is probably not a bad idea. But beyond that we must obey the commandment to pray and fast for those who persecute us.

    Under the mercy,
    John

    I guess Pope John Paul II was right - they do pray to the same God we do. They just spit Him out after they pray to Him.

    But in VII reasoning, they probably just feel unworthy to consume Him.

  19. the video in YouTube says "These are our victories" which is a great error since it is believed was a victory attributed to Our Lady, not to them.
    Besides, are they the only ones in the whole church? This claim is particularly disturbing.
    I have great sympathy for the SSPX, but this video is not officially from them, but from a private follower.
