No health emergency ever warrants such desecration and sacrilege of the holiest Sacrament

Is this happening in Rome as is claimed by a Gloria TV source? It doesn’t matter where in fact because it is forbidden always.

Gloves and hand sanitizer used by the priest at the altar to protect us from the Body of Christ and serving the Eucharist in plastic packaging like ordinary food? If one is ill or vulnerable that person should stay home as has always been the case and a priest, if he can do so sanitarily, brings the Sacrament to the homebound.

The gloves and plastic packaging can take away particles of the host, a potential desecration that the priest is duty-bound before God to make every effort to prevent.

Such hysteria-fueled sacrilege is never warranted or permitted.

President Trump: “Houses of worship are essential”

“Today I am identifying houses of worship ... as essential places that provide essential services. Some governors have declared liquor stores in abortion clinics as essential but have left out churches and other places of worship; this is not right.”

Thank you, President Trump.

My latest column: “A Pope Francis Primer“

A Pope Francis Primer A Pope 

We are immersed in cultural and political wars, with opposing parties engaged in perpetual bickering and posing for effect. On the political front we are faced daily with the spectacle of elected officials who don’t want to work. Instead, they go on the attack and attempt to impeach the reputations of others.

False criminal accusations might provide riveting political drama, and may serve somewhat as distractions from the achievements of political rivals, but they also waste precious time for doing genuine good and waste millions of taxpayer dollars.

One of the weapons in these wars is fake news. Picking through all the information available on the Internet is difficult. Big legacy networks and news organizations that used to stake their reputation on unbiased reporting of the facts have abandoned that cause.
Advocacy opinion journalism and fake news now instead litter the Internet landscape like so many landmines for the unsuspecting. News is for the most part now free. Financial survival for those who used to do news is achieved now by pandering to wealthy advertisers with an underlying agenda that cannot be brooked without adverse consequences.

Tony Perkins: “Animus toward religion” exposed by coronavirus pandemic

Tony Perkins of FRC appeared on Fox News this week in interview about legal challenges to
pandemic church shutdowns. He noted the pattern of Democrat governors keeping churches closed while other states are permitting reopening. He said that the Coronavirus pandemic has thus exposed an “animus toward religion“.

Unequal treatment of religion seen in allowing businesses to open with 50 people but churches must limit attendance to 10. In Michigan, Governor Whitmer okayed opening a gay club while keeping churches shuttered. Barr at DOJ has issued a letter warning California about unequal treatment of religion after Governor Newsome’s reopening guidelines left churches in limbo about when they can reopen.

Respectfully disagreeing with Patrick Coffin and SSPX-bashers

Respectfully and with disappointment disagreeing with Patrick Coffin here.

If anything the SSPX is regularly panned for not having any lace at all on their plain surplices or other liturgical vestments. As well, they regularly wear boots or thick-soled plain footwear for holy Mass being that they must often trudge around in the mud for the fact that they regularly offer Mass in large tents because, for the most part, in many places they are effectively homeless or don’t have enough facilities to shelter all the people who come for ordinations or other large Masses.

Speak of that which you know. Otherwise take shelter in the wisdom of silence.

Oh, and Archbishop LeFebvre, far from being proven a conspiracy theory nutcase as you might be implying here, is a holy man who has been more than proven correct in his warnings about the errors of Vatican II and the damage to the faith and the faithful resulting, which you and many others rightly and regularly decry.

To the extent the SSPX is Catholic in the sense which the word Catholic has always meant they occupy the same moral high ground as everybody else who does the same thing.

Some years ago in Argentina Pope Francis, then-Cardinal Bergoglio, in a meeting with members of the Society declared them to be Catholic.

Thank you for visiting.
