"Benedict XVI is an Enigma!"

      We at The Daily Catholic publish this because the more Benedict Ratzinger 'claims' he's returning to Tradition, the more his actions prove the very fact that he is a wolf in sheep's clothing leading countless souls to perdition. Kangaroos and Koalas know a phony, mate, why don't most Catholics? Below are Gary's words.


"Actions Speak Louder Than Words"

By
Gary Morella
    "We lost much with the demise of the "old" Mass, which was the intention of the liberal periti of Vatican II. They made sure that the seeds for this inevitable demise were planted in many Vatican II documents that encouraged a myriad of special options, modifications, i.e., the 'novelties'. They did this in the name of bowing to the customs of the culture, a false enculturation in tune with a corresponding false ecumenism that now tells us that Catholicism is equal with any other religion, and there is no dire need for conversion for eternity's sake. Lest we forget, many martyrs shed their blood by refusing to 'bow to the customs of the culture' because many of those customs were pagan. Today we see that same paganism de facto being encouraged at meetings called by Catholics in the name of this false ecumenism, which is nothing more than indifferentism or syncretism, and in the liturgical travesties of WYD."

    There was a time when attending Holy Mass was something very special in that the supernatural was visibly felt. It was a unique Catholic experience. Now it has been reduced to the banalities of the world where the profane has replaced the sacred!

    It is becoming increasingly evident that the main reason that Catholics no longer know their faith is that the prime catechetical tool for teaching it to them, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, has been watered down such that many of the immutable truths of the faith are no longer a part of that sacred liturgy. What happens at these WYD entertainment extravaganzas shows the extent toward which sacriligeous extremes are reached as Holy Mass becomes a vehicle for the profane.

    Benedict XVI is an enigma! What good does it do to encourage the Tridentine Mass when partaking in such a sorry example of the bastardization of the Mass? This is a violation of the fundamental principle of non-contradiction which has become a modus operandi of the current papacy!

    We lost much with the demise of the "old" Mass, which was the intention of the liberal periti of Vatican II. They made sure that the seeds for this inevitable demise were planted in many Vatican II documents that encouraged a myriad of special options, modifications, i.e., the "novelties". They did this in the name of bowing to the customs of the culture, a false enculturation in tune with a corresponding false ecumenism that now tells us that Catholicism is equal with any other religion, and there is no dire need for conversion for eternity's sake. Lest we forget, many martyrs shed their blood by refusing to "bow to the customs of the culture" because many of those customs were pagan. Today we see that same paganism de facto being encouraged at meetings called by Catholics in the name of this false ecumenism, which is nothing more than indifferentism or syncretism, and in the liturgical travesties of WYD.

    Real ecumenism is standing in contradiction, not accommodation to the world, as a witness to Christ's Church and the need for conversion to it. And it's high time we started practicing it as reinforced by the beauty of the Tridentine Mass, which begs the obvious question. Why doesn't Benedict XVI do this publicly as an example for the Catholic world. Actions speak louder than words by an order-of-magnitude!

    The entire theology of Catholicism is contained in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. At least, it used to be. When you dilute and diminish the Mass, you do the same to the faith, making it unrecognizable as Catholic. We don't need "child Masses", "teen Masses", "rock Masses", "polka Masses", “folk Masses” ad nauseam! We need to reinforce the aforementioned theology by letting the faithful know that we're dealing with a "sense of the sacred" that cannot be trivialized via manipulation to accommodate the latest fads, e.g., "fake aborigines!" The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not a toy to be played with, something those who encourage dissent couldn't care less about!.

    The current difficulties in the Church are not hard to understand because when you mess with a Mass that wasn't broke, a Mass that didn't need fixing, you mess with a person's faith. This is what happened after Vatican II.

    What kind of an example is this for Catholics? It tells them that our beautiful Liturgy can be changed at whim. And if that is the case, what other things in the Church can be changed at whim to include the Church teachings on faith and morals? They're all up for grabs. What other message can there be? And that is the crux of the problem. Until this fact is recognized and rectified by Rome, the problem will not go away.


    Gary's words above prefaced Christopher Ferrara's first-hand account of the debacle down under and posted on the Remnant website in revealing the sad fact that the ostrichs still have their head in the sands even as the wind blows further through the progressive prairie that has been turned into a desert of destruction by the very enablers of Vatican II. See, Sydney of Sodom?
