In Ireland, celebrating the 6th anniversary of Summorum

His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke will offer a Pontifical High Mass at Ss. Peter and Paul Church in the Diocese of Cork on Sunday, July 7, 6th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum, at 11:30a.m. 

Or perhaps it's not too late, while he's in the country, for there to be a Mass of Reparation for the grave scandals caused over and over by the Redemporists of Limerick (see here and here). These Clown Masses, public trashing of the Traditional Latin Mass, and the Redemptorists allowing open homosexuals to preach "homilies" from the pulpit about their "lifestyles," surely could use His Eminences' prompt attention.

Perhaps too the Mass might be in reparation to Mary, Queen of Ireland, for the pro-abortion legislation presently proposed, and certain to pass, here in Ireland propelled onward through the strenuous efforts our 'Catholic' Taoiseach, Enda Kenny.

I feared that our great Cardinals would back away from the Traditional Latin Mass with the election of Pope Francis. I now see that the Holy Ghost is still with his Church. We should all pray that Pope Francis would leave his personal ideas aside and lead Christ's Church as Christ intends it to be. Christ inspired the Church for 2000 years and modernists have attempted to erase it all for their own idea of what the Church should be. Pope Francis must uphold the condemnation of this heresy by his predessesors Pope Leo Xlll, St. Pius X, Pope Benedict XV and Ven. Pius Xll.

I'm sure the Church will be packed and the faithful consoled - just as, when the relics of St Thérèse visited Ireland and a million people turned out to venerate them and ask for her intercession.

The Church in Ireland has fallen off the cliff.
The faithful in Ireland need all the strengthening, consoling and, long term, re-educating in the Faith that they can get.

As for the pastors of the Church...

Well, Servant of God, Fr Edward Flanagan saw way back in 1946 what would come to pass - saying this on his return to the USA:

"What you need over there is to have someone shake you loose from your smugness and satisfaction and set an example by punishing those who are guilty of cruelty, ignorance and neglect of their duties in high places . . . I wonder what God's judgment will be with reference to those who hold the deposit of faith and who fail in their God-given stewardship of little children."

Wishful thinking no doubt. But we can pray those who perpetrated such disgusting insults against The Faith will have the humility to repent.

Liam Ronan said...

I often think of the scandals and travails besetting the Church these days at such a frighteningly accelerating pace and am reminded of 1 Peter 4:17
"For the time is, that judgement should begin at the house of God. And if first at us, what shall be the end of them that believe not the gospel of God?"
There is a great silence in heaven these days. Pray in earnest my friends.

@ecclesia millitante
Too late?
I fear it is too late for Eire even now.
There is an old prophesy of St. Patrick (and St. Columcille as well) that goes:
" years before the Last Judgement, in order to spare (Eire) Ireland the reign of the Antichrist, Ireland shall be destroyed by the sea in a single inundation".
Not to be glib, and with apologies to the Beach Boys, we're waxing up our surfboards here at the moment.

I wouldn't count on it, seeing as Cardinal Burke is on record defending a transgendered "nun."

Liam Ronan said...

What is your source for that, Matthew?

Matthew said...

Mr. Ronan,

Of course.

It is not the most salutary newspaper, but there is no evidence of which I am aware refuting this.

Liam Ronan said...

Thank you Matthew. I've read the article in question and the individual in in question, i.e. Sister Julie Green, to quote Cardinal Burke's written forthright remarks " no way espouses a sex change operation as right or good. In fact, she holds it to be seriously disordered. Therefore, I caution you very much about the rash judgements which you made in your letter to the Apostolic Nuncio."
Grave injury to the body is a sin against the 5th Commandment and may be forgiven in the Sacrament of Confession as with any grave sin
truly repented of. It seems quite apparent that such was the case for this poor individual and seems too that this person publicly (at least to competent ecclesiastical authorities) repented, and that a determination was made that this person might be allowed to pursue religious life as a nun.
I myself was a judge for 25 years before retiring and I have no problem whatsoever with the decision of the Cardinal notwithstanding the article is somewhat sketchy.
Christ's Peace be with you, Friend! And do please be prudent in what you toss out in public. You yourself said the article was not published in a 'salutary newspaper'.

Angelo said...

"You yourself said the article was not published in a 'salutary newspaper'." We must all be careful when reading any publication from liberal sources. Liberals are known to outright lie and distort the facts. They have no scruples whatsoever when it comes to lying. It is strange, but it is a fact. I myself have known Bishops, priests and lay leaders who lied to my face and lied to others. Never trust liberals for accurate information.

Liam Ronan said...

There is a saying attributed to President Ronald Reagan:
"Trust, but verify."
I think that wisdom extends to both 'liberals' and 'conservatives', whatever species they may be. I've never quite figured out a satisfactory definition for either.

A recent visit by Raymond Burke to Klnock Shrine in Ireland to celebrate the TLM was captured on video and put on you tube. It has attracted many negative comments particularly in relation to his wearing of the Cappa Magna in procession. No doubt many of those making comments do not see the beauty of the TLM, nor its spendour nor magnificence. WIll this visit result in more pf the same?

Angelo said...

Liam Ronon, I should have also mentioned to be very careful of the publications of the anti-Vatican ll ultra-traditionalists. The sedevacantist type. They are as bad as the liberal publications. I have read their publications and WOW! can they distort facts. I describe both liberal and sedevacantist type publications as liars.
