"Conservative Cardinal not wanted by priests: Mass stopped."
“Such is the Church of Bridges and Mercy, the open Church that reaches out. Cardinal Burke has been forced to cancel a Mass in Ostuni: the cathedral priest asked for the celebration behind closed doors because the cardinal's presence on the upper floors of the Archdiocese of Brindisi is not welcome.”
“The episode throws a dim light on the increasingly political way of doing things in the Church. The idea that a priest, supported by his bishop, a cardinal, denies the church is an indication of how serious the situation in the Church has become and what restrictions on freedom those churchmen who are not committed to the mainstream, are exposed to because they are seen as enemies. Is this the community that you want to force-open dialogue? Are these the desired shepherds with the smell of the sheep, yet with a knife between their teeth?” askes Zambrano.
Poor Cardinal Burke, he seems to have lost his way. I’m sure there are several pious excuses for why this is a wise course of action. But compare the courage of a Chinese priest who celebrates a secret house Mass under threat of arrest or death by the CCP (or excommunication by his Vatican approved Patriotic Church bishop), and a Cardinal dissuaded from celebrating a public Mass in Italy! Pathetic.
The site "One Peter Five" has an article on the prophesies of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. When the modern St. Peter's Basilica was built, the previous site was left intact until the new one was complete. It was her belief that there would be a new Church built over the old.----Everyone is to be admitted into this new Church. This will be a united Church where everyone has equal rights. This is the new one world Church of Bergoglio.----Malachi Martin had started on a new book entitled "How the Catholic Church became a creature of the new world order". The old Church would be left intact as a framework for the new one. Cardinal Burke is attempting to keep the old Church together. The locked doors are symptomatic of the new global Church which is being built over it.---The so called old Church is the one of the "sacrifice of the Mass" through which the grace of redemption is wrought. The new one is the Church of the Resurrection and the interaction of the marketplace. There is no sin and every day is Mardi Gras.
Is the celebration of Mass behind closed doors even licit?
He is such a wimpy pant load
@Anonymous: Your choice of words visualizes a constant emphasis on garbage. Why not criticize from a higher mentality? No problem with criticism. We all need that in order to become a better person. ----Your words are nothing more than "character assassination" and putrid at that. You can do much better. Otherwise, you should be censured by the blog administrator.
Ray's on the nose and is now exposed for what he has always been, a self-referring clericalist show boat. Ray will continue to bleat out criticism of Pope Francis to attract declining support from the Trads/Conservatives but guarded enough to keep his meal ticket and pension. He gives a whole new meaning to 'lukewarm'.
What an utter disgrace that Cardinal Burke, in his wisdom, and in view of the Marxist/ Masonic door closing, chose to cancel his celebration of Holy Mass rather than risk the sacrilegious danger towards the Blessed Sacrament. Italy has indeed strange wimps for priests and bishops. Let us remember the mural of the intertwined homosexuals on the Cathedral wall of one infamous Italian bishop. Italy has fallen it would seem as Francis has knocked the cornerstone from much of its foundation. Thank God all around the world thousands of Catholics are flocking to Latin Mass. That is where the Church lives on. The rest, like watered-down milk, will drain away. Our priest, God Bless him, has had to put on a third Sunday Mass here in Australia to cope with the numbers in our growing community.
How ironic Pius XII removed the ancient ceremony of knocking on the doors during the pre-1955 Holy Week ceremonies.God bless Andrew
