Called the Carmelite Monastery in Cody Wyoming. They do not have facilities for priest guest. So on Sunday I have decide to go instead to Wyoming College in Lander Wy. The Yates family live there and I will visit with a Philosophy teacher Peter (I do not remember his last name). He is interested to encourage me in my mission. Then I plan to go to Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary (Fraternity of St. Peter) in Nebraska. Then hopefully to Detroit to get to know Michael Voris and Fr. Paul Nicholson.
Today after the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass I have done simple work helping my friends whom I am visiting continue their unpacking. I feel strange not doing more priestly work, but offering this up is very redemptive. I don’t necessarily like work, so it makes it more of a Advent sacrifice. Remember that Advent always was a penitential time. Of course I do not like penance. So we can support each other to prepare for the Birth of Jesus by small disciplines.
Every morning at 7 AM, I am celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at St Peter and Paul in Grangeville Idaho. Thank God and Mary that the pastor is kind enough to let me say the Holy Mass in his church. Around 50 people attended yesterday and today around 30. There is a lot of division here between the Latin Mass community and the Society of Pius X.
I am still looking for a ride to Wyoming and also looking at some cars to buy and drive. As I work on my missionary work of spreading news and support for the Holy Mass, I know it will be very difficult to get permission to say the Holy Mass because the pastors ask for a letter from my bishop to his bishop. That will take a great deal of time and planning ahead. Right now I have a the letter from my bishop to St. Patricks saying I am in good standing with the diocese. So the liberal bishops and pastors can stop you from saying the Holy Mass by these requirements. But God will help as He did here and I may just have to say a private Holy Mass on my own in the places I stay. I am very hopeful that all things will go well and not without some difficulties of course. Today the feast of St. Francis Xavier, we are reminded how important missionary work is. St Francis Xavier, pray for my work and all who are sharing the Gospel and the whole Catholic faith. Amen.
Yesterday flew from Sacramento to Lewiston Idaho. Then off to Cottonwood Idaho. Today, Sunday, I said the Holy Latin Mass in Grangeville Idaho. Here are some of the kids who attended. We had lunch together with these home schooling families and discussed the struggle to get the Holy Latin Mass in this area. The bishop says that because there is such a need just for the english Mass that they can not have the Holy Latin Mass. My God; how sad that there are so many people desiring the Holy Latin Mass and no where to go other than 3 hours away. Let us pray and write to Ecclesia Dei, the Papal Nuncio in Washington D.C. and our bishops on a constant basis. But above all, PRAY PRAY PRAY.
I will next go to Wyoming College in Lander Wyoming to visit the college and old friends. I still need to find a ride there. Have to have faith in God and Mary to get me together with who ever they want me to connect with. Hopefully my friend Jesus will meet me in Wyoming and go from there to the Carmelite Monastery in Cody Wy.
The Sacred Heart is such a consulation when we are desperate. Thank you Jesus.
It is so important, as we read in the prophets, to renounce all the evil that we as Catholics have committed and beg for God’s blessing again on our Church. We are afraid to be bold about all the terrible actions that are going on in our Church today and to denounce them and beg for God’s mercy on us. What I am referring to is the bishops, priest and laity who are (behind the back) fighting against what is Holy and the Church’s teachings. So I am proposing that we begin by boldly denouncing what is going on by letters to the chanceries and the Vatican. But more important is to beg for forgiveness so that the curses that we received for these bad actions will be lifted by God and the Church can be renewed.
“A son honors his father, and a servant fears his master; If then I am a father where is the honor due me? And if I am a master, where is the reverence due to me? So says the Lord of host to you, O priest who despise his name. But you ask, “How have we despised your name? By offering polluted food on my altar! Then you ask, “How have we polluted it? By saying the table of the Lord may be slighted! When you offer a blind animal for sacrifice, is this not evil? When you offer the lame or the sick, is it not evil? Present it to your governor; see if he will accept it, or welcome you, says the Lord of host.” Malachi 1,6-9 “And now, O priest, this commandment is for you: if you do not listen, And if you do not lay it to heart, to give glory to my name, says the Lord of hosts, I will send a curse upon you and of your blessing I will make a curse. Yes, I have already cursed it because you do not lay it to heart. Malachi 2,1-2
