On this feast of Corpus Christi (Body of Christ), I would ask you to watch this video “Corpus Christi (58) Years Ago” posted on Gloria TV. It will literally make you cry, seeing what respect the Catholic clergy, religious and public use to have for God, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
You will especially cry over the extreme spiritual and liturgical poverty that the Church now lives in after Vatican II. Real pictures do not lie. The progressive, liberal, modernist, feminist “Catholics” cannot deny that this is truly how God use to be treated by bishops, priests, religious, youth, children, government leaders and military in most Catholic countries around the world.
All we can do is cry and pray, pray and cry. We, the few traditional Catholics left, need to 1) call the Church to repentance, 2) resist the continual self distraction of our Catholic faith, 3) restore little by little what has been demolished, and 4) renew our Church by sharing traditional Catholic rites, music, architecture, art, religious habits and vestments.
Notice how well all the public is dressed. Notice the modesty of the women and girls. Notice the disciplined gate of those in the procession. Notice that this took place on public streets with the Government and military supporting it. Notice the priests and public figures actually kneeling down to the God who made them.
This is extremely sad, but it also is great motivation for all of us who love Catholic tradition. All is possible for those who put all their faith in God’s power, pray and work for tradition.
Today, Thursday June 19, here at St. Catherine of Siena, 6200 S. Central Ave. Phoenix, we will be having the Holy Sacrifice of the Latin Mass at 5:30 and a public procession with the Blessed Sacrament around the neighborhood immediately following. All are invited.
