TCVBS Third Day

After Holy Latin Mass and breakfast, we started the young men and boys off with a hour of Latin Mass Altar Boy practice.  For their first time many older boys started learning the Latin Mass parts and actions.  We repeated over and over together the prayers and then had actual practice of the actions.  St. Catherine’s still has 6 side altars where the young men and boys were able to practice at.

The satanist love all the publicity and conflict this is causing.  Adam Daniels, who is organizing this and who is a satanist high priest and a registered sex offender, stated that; “It’s definitely a positive for us, we continue to have an issue with Christians trying to shut us down, and this highlights that.”

Encyclopedia Britannica definition of a black mass is: “a blasphemous and usually obscene burlesque (mockery) of the true (Catholic) mass performed by Satanic cults. The naked back of a woman often serves as an altar, and a validly consecrated (Catholic) host is generally used to intensify the mockery. The rite commonly incorporates other elements of Satanic magic.”  Words in parenthesis are mine.

Eucharist 3We need to let everyone in Oklahoma City know that the sacrilegious satanic black mass is not a form of free speech, but is instead, a worship of satan by desecrating a consecrated Catholic Host, which truly is the Body of Jesus Christ.  Also that this is not educational, nor is it American.

Traditional Catholic Vacation BIble School Second Day

As what normally happens, more children and more children begin to come to the TCVBS everyday.  And of course we start off with the Holy Latin Mass.photophoto

The girls are behaving very very well.  They are all good children.   But the boys, OH BOY!

photoIt was my plan to take them to swim at the public pool everyday.  So yesterday we went and it was closed because someone had defecated in the pool and they had to do a chlorine shock treatment to the pool.  So it was closed when we walked down to the pool.

In our meeting of the young volunteers at the end of the day, one of the young men said he felt that it was God saying He did not want us going to swim at the public pool.  I think what he meant was that we should not be swimming with all the public girls in immodest bathing suits.

Also, the time it took to get the boys changed for swimming, wasted so much time.  So we have nixed the swimming plan.  We had planned shorts and T-shirts to swim in.  Now the students can come in their semi-formal clothing and stay in it.

We start off with an hour of sports to get the boys energy out before they try to sit still and learn about God and traditional Catholicism.

photoThe boys are fine too, but it takes a lot of patience with them.photoAlmost a goal, but the goalie was too good.

photoTaking Gregorian Chant seriously.  But not too seriously.photo

photoThe boys had all sorts of questions about demonic possessions and ghost.  They also had questions about the seeing eye of the illuminati and other cult things.  
photoGirls continue to study God’s creation.

The girls also learned about what it means to be a woman, to nurture and to give life.  They also learned about making a home by cooking, cleaning, sowing and loving.  And they learned about a vocation to be a nun who prays or who helps in hospitals or teaches.photoThen the young men and boys teamed up to learn the Latin Mass Altar Boy Responses. photo

All you parents, priests and religious need to remember that what you are teaching your children will last all their life time.  They may reject it for a while, but them, later on, the truth will come to mind when they need it.  Children, young men and young women are future Catholics in potential.  We are trying to help them to convert from ordinary people to extra ordinary people.  To do great things with their lives.  We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics.

Absolutely No Extra Ordinary Eucharistic Ministers At St. Catherine Phoenix Az

Here at St. Catherine of Siena’s there is absolutely no Extra Ordinary Eucharistic Ministers. We priests and the deacon are the only ones who touch the Body Of Christ.  Only the Body of Christ is given at all the masses because the Body and Blood, soul and divinity of Jesus is in every Host.  When you receive the Holy Host you receive God-Jesus.  For 1500 years or more only the Host was given to Catholics.

9f9eebd4c494f145336e51b8a6ddda6bI know that many people are Extra Ordinary Ministers to help the priests and are doing it as a ministry.  But I contend, very, very strongly, that only priests have consecrated hands to touch Jesus in the Holy Communion.  So I want to ask all of you reading this to not touch the Holy Host.  Let priests take Holy Communion to the sick people.  Also in that way we are able to hear confession and make sure the people are truly prepared to receive Jesus.

There is a man who was in the seminary and installed at Acolyte long time ago.  He does take Holy Communion to the Sick People.

photoOnce a month I also go to hear confessions and to bring the Holy Communion to the shut-ins. Yesterday was the Sunday for me to go.  We had visited many homes when we finished at a Convalescent Hospital.

As we were giving Holy Communion, two of Mother Theresa’s sisters came down the hall. They were so glad to see me because they knew of people in the Alzheimer-psyche ward that needed to go to confession.

photoI had been to this convalescent hospital many times, but never in the locked down part.  It was so so sad.  We were there at dinner time and they were all crammed into a small cafeteria.  The food was served on plastic plates and was not that good.  People were asking for some coffee and had to wait quite awhile to get some.

Many people wanted to talk to me and I spent time listening to many.  1 wants me to baptize him Catholic because he was only baptized a mormon.  2 did the best they could to confess their sins.  Another needs help getting out, but no one is helping her and she rarely gets a pass to leave for some time.  They are all living in a close quartered nightmare.

Each one of us should be so so happy we are free to come in and out of our houses.  We should be so happy to not be committed to a Alzheimer ward.  We are so blessed to have our freedom and our mind that can make common decisions.

Crucifixion_FERRARI, GaudenzioI wanted to take some pictures but did not want to embarrass the poor people.  Even though it was so sad, God also worked while we visited these people.

May we never take for granted everything we have and can do.  And let us also reach out in Catholic love to others that are not so fortunate as we are.

 

Traditional Catholic Vacation Bible School

I want to encourage all  of you who are reading this blog to start a TCVBS or Traditional Catholic Vacation Bible School.  Most Vacation Bible Schools use protestant generic materials with a few Catholic things tacked on.  I know because we would have one every summer at St. Patricks in Ripon California.  We always purchased the kit from Liguori Press.  Protestants would lend us their art work for the same VBS they had already completed, and of course without the Catholic components.

cropped-copy-vbs_header_wp3You could always tell the videos where protestant with the “new generic christianity” (which is really just anti-christ “truth”).  We love Jesus and each other, but let us not believe in anything that could cause controversy, like Catholic beliefs.  The anti-christ will teach that all religions are good and that we have to accept all religions as true religions.  One world order with a one world religion of peace and love (unless you may not agree with “all religions are true religions”).

So what does it take.  First find a priest who is willing to begin every morning with the Holy Latin Mass.  Then find some good young volunteers.  Come up with a schedule and materials with which to do the traditional Catholic teachings with.   Other than Holy Mass and Holy Rosary, the boys and girls are separate and have their own schedules.  Everyone is asked to come nicely dressed.  Girls dresses/skirts, boys long pants and collared shirts.

Sacerdos Alter Christus - grandeOur schedule is:

8-9 Latin Mass  Boys on one side, Girls on other side of Chapel.

9 – 9:30 Breakfast  (Cereal with milk) Boys in one building and Girls in another.

9:30 – 10:30 Sports (while it is still cool) Boys and girls separated.

10:30 – 11 Altar boy practice,   arts and crafts (girls).

11 – 12 Gregorian chant workshop (boys)  Saints Video (Girls)

12 – 12:30 Lunch.  

12:30 – 1:30 Saints Video (boys)  Gregorian Chant workshop (girls)

1:30 – 2: 30 Bible study.

2:30 – 3:00 Holy Rosary

It is a great deal of time and hard work, but these young men and women and children are our future.  It is so wonderful to be traditional Catholics.

Traditional Catholic Vacation Bible School, St. Catherine Phoenix, July 7-11 & 14-18

The classes end with Holy Rosary and students go home at 3:00 pm.

Supreme Court Allows For-Profit Corporations To Not Pay For Abortifacients

On June 30th. The Supreme Court ruled that for profit corporations do have the religious freedom to not have to pay for abortifacient birth control.  I read some of the Supreme Court document and put some of it on this blog.  If want to read the whole long document you can find it here.

LIFE-GENDER“The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) prohibits the “Government [from] substantially burden[ing] a person’s exercise of religion even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability” unless the Government “demonstrates that application of the burden to the person is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.”

As amended by the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA), RFRA covers “any exercise of religion, whether or not compelled by, or central to, a system of religious belief.”

Since RFRA applies in these cases, we must decide whether the challenged HHS regulations substantially burden the exercise of religion, and we hold that they do. The owners of the businesses have religious objections to abortion, and according to their religious beliefs the four contraceptive methods at issue are abortifacients. If the owners comply with the HHS mandate, they believe they will be facilitating abortions, and if they do not comply, they will pay a very heavy price—as much as $1.3 million per day, or about $475 million per year, in the case of one of the companies. If these consequences do not amount to a substantial burden, it is hard to see what would.

Nonexempt employers are generally required to provide coverage for the 20 contraceptive methods approved by the Food and Drug Administration, including the 4 that may have the effect of preventing an already fertilized egg from developing any further by inhibiting its attachment to the uterus. Religious employers, such as churches, are exempt from this contraceptive mandate. HHS has also effectively exempted religious nonprofit organizations with religious objections to providing coverage for contraceptive services. Under this accommodation, the insurance issuer must exclude contraceptive coverage from the employer’s plan and provide plan participants with separate payments for contraceptive services without imposing any costsharing requirements on the employer, its insurance plan, or its employee beneficiaries.

tumblr_mw8gtq1BLp1r6mdnjo1_500In these cases, the owners of three closely held for-profit corporations have sincere Christian beliefs that life begins at conception and that it would violate their religion to facilitate access to contraceptive drugs or devices that operate after that point.”

Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. “Fifty years ago, Norman Hahn started a wood-working business in his garage, and since then, this company, (Conestoga Wood Specialties), has grown and now has 950 employees. Conestoga is organized under Pennsylvania law as a for-profit corporation. The Hahns exercise sole ownership of the closely held business; they control its board of directors and hold all of its voting shares. One of the Hahn sons serves as the president and CEO.  The Hahns believe that they are required to run their business “in accordance with their religious beliefs and moral principles.”

The Hahns and Conestoga sued HHS and other federal officials and agencies under RFRA and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, seeking to enjoin application of ACA’s contraceptive mandate insofar as it requires them to provide health-insurance coverage for four FDA- approved contraceptives that may operate after the fertilization of an egg.  These include two forms of emergency contraception commonly called “morning after” pills and two types of intrauterine devices.

The Mennonite Church opposes abortion and believes that “the fetus in its earliest stages . . . shares humanity with those who conceived it.”

It is therefore “against [their] moral conviction to be involved in the termination of human life” after conception, which they believe is a “sin against God to which they are held accountable.” The Hahns have accordingly excluded from the group health insurance plan they offer to their employees certain contraceptive methods that they consider to be abortifacients.”

Hobby Lobby.  “David and Barbara Green and their three children are Christians who own and operate two family businesses. Forty-five years ago, David Green started an arts-and- crafts store that has grown into a nationwide chain called Hobby Lobby. There are now 500 Hobby Lobby stores, and the company has more than 13,000 employees.  Hobby Lobby is organized as a for-profit corpora- tion under Oklahoma law.

418580_350747591670116_1453853407_nChildren are a blessing, not a curse.

They specifically object to the same four contraceptive methods as the Hahns and, like the Hahns, they have no objection to the other 16 FDA-approved methods of birth control.”  (As traditional Catholics, we know that all forms of birth control is against God’s laws).

The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops came out with this statement:

“The Court clearly did not decide whether the so-called ‘accommodation’ violates RFRA when applied to our charities, hospitals and schools, so many of which have challenged it as a burden on their religious exercise. We continue to hope that these great ministries of service, like the Little Sisters of the Poor and so many others, will prevail in their cases as well.”

Claire Ferchaud Asked to Have The Sacred Heart Placed On Flag Of France

In 1916, during World War I, Jesus is said to have appeared the young woman, Claire Ferchaud, from the Vendee part of France.  She was told to have the Sacred Heart placed on the tricolored French Flag (on the white section in the middle).  She was also asked to have it put on all the soldiers uniforms.

clair1She met President Raymond Poincare and asked for him to become Catholic and to reject Freemasonry.  She told him secrets that no one could have known about his family.  He promised to put the Sacred Heart on the flag, but never did.

She then wrote letters to all the generals in France, but only one, General Foch, consecrated the French arm forces and the allies to the Sacred Heart.  At the 2nd Battle of Marne, he won a decisive battle of the war and saved Paris from the German Army.

Many of the soldiers were given flyers that explained what Jesus had asked and some of them wore the Sacred Heart badge.

SCThis is what is said to have transpired when Jesus appeared to Claire.  “He bared his sacred heart, and told her that God was on the side of France, and would lead the country to victory – so long as the country confessed its sins and rediscovered its true faith. Jesus pointed towards the wound on his heart, and explained “This signifies the official atheism of France.” Since the revolution, the French had denied their faith and substituted secular laws for the Gospel.”

Jesus said that; “His Heart was broken and slashed by the sins of mankind.  But He had an even deeper wound, that people do not believe in God.”

List of Promises of our Merciful Savior to Sr. Claire Ferchaud, Loublande / France.

“I come, not to bring terror among you; I am the God of love, the God who forgives and wants to save you all.”

“My grace will work with great power on sinners who, without contrition, kneel before the picture of My Broken Heart, so that they will arise converted.”

“I will forgive their sins, even before the absolution, to those who with a true love kiss the picture of My Broken Heart.”

“My glance will touch the hearts of the indifferent and will inflame them with fervor so that they will practice goodness.”

“A single act of love, with the plea for forgiveness towards this picture, will be enough for Me to open heaven to the soul which, in the last hour, must appear before Me.”

“When some refuse to believe in the truths of the (Catholic) religion, one can put the picture of My Broken Heart in their room (dwelling) without their knowledge.  It will bring, through the wonder of graces, sudden and supernatural conversions.”

Wikipedia says that Sr. Claire of Jesus Crucified was later rejected by the Church??  But when the apparitions were taking place, she asked for and was granted a perpetual Mass for France, which was approved by Msgr Humbrecht, the bishop of Poitiers, France on June 11, 1918.

What is important about her mission, is that she seems to be chosen by God to restore France, The First Daughter of the Church, to Catholicism.  It was also to get rid of the secular humanist laws and government.  The secularist materialistic philosophy that caused the French Revolution, then spread from France, all over the world.  It was just like what happened with Russian Communism that also spread all over the world.  Marxist Communism is just another child of secular humanism that was behind the French Revolution and is continued by the masons all over the world.  

frenchroyalists_sacredheartHumanistic Secularism replaces God with Man, puts Science above Theology.  They believe that by simply voting, the common man can come up with good laws.  Equality, Fraternity, and Liberty.

We are so fortunate to be traditional Catholics and have God as our law giver, provider and protector.

Holy Pilgrimage To Chimayo Sanctuary New Mexico And Heaven

In 1810 a Spanish farmer (Don Bernardo de la Incarnacion Abeyta) was plowing his field in New Mexico U.S.A. when his plow hit on something that was not a rock.  He dug and found a crucifix.

photoHe took the crucifix to the local priest.  The next day he was plowing again and hit the same crucifix at the same place.  So he decided to make a shrine for Jesus right where the crucifix was found.  photoAt the exact spot, there is a hole into which dirt from the Sanctuary is filled everyday and hundreds of pilgrims come and take some of the earth back home with them.  Some of the pilgrims are to old to stoop down and get the earth.  Carlos, who is traveling with us helped fill bags and containers for them.

photoAs the sign above says, many people come here looking for physical, spiritual or emotional healing.  Fr. Brennan, who took us, here told us about a true story of his first pastor here in the Diocese of Santa Fe.

This priest’s mother had walked on pilgrimage for three days to get here with her mother for a miracle.  His mother had been born blind and her mother was bringing her asking for a miracle for her daughter to be able to see in one eye.

photoWhen they arrived and put the earth into her eyes, she was not healed.  But on the way back home she started to run.  Her mother called her to stop so that she would not fall.  The girl cried out that she could see in one eye and could run.

Later on her son the priest was studding in Washington D.C. and met an eye doctor.  He told him about the miracle.  The doctor told him he may be able to help his mother see in the other eye since so many advances in eye medicine had recently taken place.  When he went home and told his mother, she said that she would never do that since God had been so kind as to give her the vision in one eye and she was for ever thankful for that.

photoThere is also a chapel close by built in honor of the pilgrim Jesus, “Santo Nino De Atocha”.

People do need to go on pilgrimages, especially traditional pilgrimages where the Latin Mass is offered each day and people pray along the way and dress modestly.

We are actually all on a pilgrimage through this valley of tears to our true homeland, Heaven.  May we never forget that this life is but a second in comparison with eternity.  Where do we want to reach?  Heaven or Hell.

photoIf heaven is your destiny, then do everything you possibly can to be a holy traditional Catholic.  Pray, love, help others and have lots of faith in God and Mary.  Also, everyday remind yourself of the possibility of ending at the wrong destination; Hell.

In the meantime, it is wonderful that there are places where we can go and get God, Mary’s and the saints’ help.  They have already tread the path that we are on.  Let us be comforted to know that God, the saints and the angels are on our journey with us.

Traditional Catholic Loretto Chapel And St. Joseph’s Miraculous Staircase, Santa Fe New Mexico

Traditional Catholicism is not only sacred, but also beautiful.  But it has always come from God’s divine force, men and women willing to do great things for God, sacrifice and praying with faith for miracles.

St.-JosephThe famous miraculous staircase can be seen by everyone in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe New Mexico.  The name probably comes from the Our Lady of Loreto connected with the Holy Family’s house of Loreto Italy.  This holy house is where both Mary and Jesus were conceived in Nazareth.  It was miraculously transported from Nazareth to Dalmatia in the year 1291.  Then in the year 1294, to be protected from the muslim occupation of Dalmatia, it was again miraculously transported to the little town of Loreto in northeast Italy.

A priest was healed after Our Lady of Loreto (Feast Day Dec 10) appeared to him and told him; 

Know that the house which has been brought up of late to your land, is the same in which I was born and brought up. Here, at the Annunciation of the Archangel Gabriel, I conceived the Creator of all things. Here the Word of the Eternal Father became Man. The Altar which was brought with this house was consecrated by Peter, Prince of the Apostles.

“This house has come from Nazareth to your shores by the power of God, of Whom nothing is impossible. And now, in order that you may bear testimony of all these things, be healed. Your unexpected and sudden recovery shall confirm the truth of what I have declared to you.”

Before we even get to the great and awesome miracle, I want to tell a little about the missionary spirit that religious use to have like the Loretto Sisters who had the chapel and staircase built.

In May 1852, 6 religious left Kentucky to go to Santa Fe.  But on the way the mother superior came down with cholera and died.  Because of this, they were kicked off the steamer.  Two more came down with cholera and only one was able to reach Santa Fe (along with the 3 other sisters).  On the way, by boat and covered wagon, they experienced broken axles, wheels and fear, as they saw bones of other travels.

Once they arrived they began in a one room adobe building.  Santa Fe was mostly made up of Mexicans and Indians.  With Bishop Lamy support, they began to found a convent and school.  Twenty years later, on July 25, 1873, under the patronage of St. Joseph, the beautiful Chapel Of Our Lady of Light was begun.

After the chapel and choir loft had been built, the problem of building a staircase, that would fit in the chapel, was discovered.  All the local carpenters told Mother Magdalen that it was impossible.

photoSo the sisters decided to make a novena (nine day prayer) to St. Joseph for help.  Exactly on the 9th day of the novena, a gray haired man with a donkey came to the convent asking to help the sisters build the staircase.  He only had a saw, a hammer, a T square and a tub to heat water to bend the wood.

He worked during the Christmas season of 1879.  Before he could be paid he vanished.  There was no bill for wood at the only lumber yard there.  They didn’t even know what the sisters were talking about when they went to see if they owed money for the wood.

photoThe staircase is a complete mystery even today by architects, engineers and wood experts.  It makes two complete 360 degree turns as it winds up to the choir loft.  It is made with only wood pegs and no nails.  It has no inner pole to support it, (as is usually the case).  It has exactly 33 steps.

It was constructed with no banister.  The banister was added later and two attachments to the wall of the chapel has been made.  Each stringer is of the exact perfect curve.  There are nine on the outside and seven on the inside.

photoIn 1996, the wood was analyzed to find out what trees it came from and from what part of the world.  It is not wood native to New Mexico.

The sisters of Loretto sold the chapel to a private family.  Thank God that this happened before the sacrilegious “Wreck a Model” took place to the chapel.  It is still in the beautiful traditional Catholic architecture from before Vatican II.  So it still has only the original altar facing God and the beautiful traditional stain glass windows and statues.

photoRight now the chapel is considered a museum where you can rent it to have a wedding in.  Fr. Terry Brennan told me, that the people who own the chapel, are willing to sell it to someone who would be willing to use it again for Catholic masses.  I am not sure how much it would sell for.  But I was told that the income from tourist and weddings earns over three million dollars a year.

photoMaybe one of you know someone who would be willing to buy this chapel to return it to Catholicism and for the Latin Mass only in Santa Fe.  Right now, Fr. Brennan offers the traditional Latin Mass every Sunday at 2pm at San Miquel Mission, (right downtown Santa Fe).

So, we need to pray to St. Joseph for more miracles.  First he helped the sisters get to Santa Fe.  Then he built the staircase.  Then he saved the chapel from being destroyed by modernist.  Now we need to ask him to get it back for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
