This sunday is Passion Sunday, the 5th Sunday of Lent, where the statues and icongraphy (except the Stations of the Cross) are covered in purple cloths. This begins the serious introduction of our Lord's Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Here, the Epistle and Gospel are longer, and there is no Gloria Patri. This is the prologue of Jesus entering Jerusalem on the donkey waving olive branches. Next week we'll walk around the neighborhood waving our branches, then the Passion will be read.
What makes this Holy Week and Easter preparation difficult is because I have no Easter date to accompany me to Holy Week services. Spring is among us, and I think it is unacceptable to not have a wife, or at least a girlfriend, or at least a Catholic date that I could converse with.
However, that is not the case. There are barely any Catholic girls that uphold the orthodox teachings of the church with regard to the role of the woman, abortion (is a sin), homosexuality (is a sin), the Mass being a sacrifice, marriage, family, intercourse (must be done all the time), and the role of the papacy, etc., etc., etc.
Most women in parishes today have no clue that a woman "must not teach or preach" (St. Paul) nor cover their heads in modesty before the Blessed Sacrament! Instead, they take their extra long fingernails and rob the tabernacle of the "wafers". Only the hands of a priest can touch the Eucharist! And besides, they're not wafters, they are the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
When a woman takes the pulpit in the Novus Ordo Church to read from the Bible or gives out the cookie, she is violating the rules of Christ the King in his temple. What a shame it is to have these women pretend they are "Catholic" but they are all but it.
