If liberal liturgists followed the Vatican II directives strictly they'd find there's nothing new in the New Mass.

      In his column today, Pat Ludwa completes his two part series of answering those who persist in perpetrating the myth of the Mass as a banquet and celebration of the people. He points out, with the aid of some very good sources, how the liberals have watered down the true essence of the Sacrifice of the Mass and, in so doing, taken away the reverence and awe that should be reserved for this august and most exalted of prayers and devotion passed down to us by Jesus Christ. Find out the truth of the purpose for which the Novus Ordo was truly intended in part two of his column titled Mass Confusion. For more, click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Mass Confusion part two

Sacrifice is simple if we are properly conditioned and our soul is in shape

      Today we continue our Lenten segment on the Church today, specifically with Sacrifice, a necessary spiritual and physical exercise we cannot live without! By its nature sacrifice dictates there will be a heavy attrition rate which Jesus knew only too well (cf. Matthew 7: 14) Our Lord has said that we need to be supple, enthusiastic and innocent as little children in order to inherit His kingdom. Sacrifice is the spiritual "nautilus" we must use to keep ourselves in shape to offset the sin-fattening temptations of the world.

"Amen I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God as a little child will not enter into it."

Mark 18: 17

Portiuncula Indulgence

Even now war looms on the horizon which will embroil every nation.

     That shocking statement by the BLessed Mother to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in late September 1993 is truer today in 1999 when we see the caldron that could boil over in Kosovo and the mideast. Our Lady warns in Message #410 that events are unfolding that will pave the way for the antichrist and the signs are evident, manifested in what is happening today throughout the world and America from the White House on down. All that Mary has foretold is coming to pass and the only way to combat the advance of satan is through her Rosary and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. She prefaces this same theme in Message #409 urging her little ones to keep the faith, not give up and willingly take up the cross for that is the only means of survival in the times ahead. For Messages #409 and #410 in late September 1993, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."
