The Emerald Isle is not Catholic anymore



Today is the Feast of Ss. Peter & Paul, the two major martyrs who were killed by Nero in Rome. These are the two major saints, the most popular apostles who are responsible for establishing the Roman Rite. Their wrath is shown when someone does not offer the Mass that Our Lord Jesus Christ established. It is a Holy Day of Obligation in the Universal Church, but not in the USA.

Now, here comes my point. In terms of the liturgy, Pope St. Pius V states in Quo Primum Tempore:

Now, therefore, in order that all everywhere may adopt and observe what has been delievered to them by the Holy Roman Church, Mother and Misteress of the other churches, it shall be unlawful henceforth and forever throughout the Christian world to sing or to read Masses according to any formula other than this Missal published by Us... Accordingly, no one whosoever is permitted to infringe or rashly contravene this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, direction, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition. Should any venture to do so, let him understand that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul." (July 14, 1570).
This Papal Bull states that anyone who does not pray the Mass and Breviary according to the 1570 Missale Romanum, reissued by Pope John XXIII in 1962. You cannot attend the Novus Ordo. A priest cannot say the Novus Ordo validly. It is clearly stated above.

Now, in the above Vortex, Michael Voris is reporting from Dublin, Ireland, asking people on the street if they are baptized Catholics, and if they go to Mass. Only one gentleman said he attends Mass freely because he believes. Amazing!

I once dated an Irish-American girl who whose family was "100% Irish". They ate corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day, which always falls during Lent. I called the mother one day and wished her a "Happy St. Paddy's Day". I asked what they did, and they ate corned beef and cabbage. I told her that I was Catholic and cannot eat meat during Lent. She said, "Oh no, that's right!" I then replied "Cardinal O'Malley did not give us permission this year." She then said "There's nothing we can do about it now."

Now, for the girl herself, she refused to get her confirmation because she did not believe. She supported gay marriage, and had a female friend, her "best friend", who was Protestant, and she went to her "best friend's" church. She was baptized Catholic and recieved her First Holy Communion, but she passed on Confirmation. She said her parents got a letter from her parish church, for which they hardly went, stating that she needed Confirmation for the salvation of her soul. She refused to get Confirmation. She and her family pledged allegiance to the American flag, which satisfied part one, but refused to practice Catholicism, therfore I dumped her.

I am not of Irish decent, but of British and Lithiuanian decent, and practice the faith traditionally as it was practiced for nearly 2,000 years. She was of Irish decent, a predominatly Catholic background, but she and her adoreres of St. Patrick refuse to receive the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Does having an Irish surname gurarantee Catholicity? I don't think so.

  1. Interesting interviews with the Irish. So Voris concludes, unsurprisingly they have lost the faith. Along with the Spanish, the Italians and much of the rest of the formally Catholic world.

    But why? Why don't they believe? Could it just be the appallingly bad example set by the leaders of the Catholic Church on a national and supra-national level. I simply cannot see how Voris can conclude the situation is as dire as it is and NOT lay the blame squarely at the shepherds in Rome. If the flock is scattered the shepherd cannot be blameless unless God withdrew the supernatural grace and made that shepherd incapable of doing his job.

  2. The reason many lost their faith to begin with is the fact that Vatican II confinscated the Faith of their Forefathers by replacing it with a Protestantized liturgy that does not do anything. Publicly, only one bishop in the world was against (at least that I'm aware of) Vatican II was Marcel Lefebrve. He believed that VII was not dogmatic, and therefore continued to practice the traditional faith as it was established by Jesus Christ. All the other bishops ignored all Archbishop Lefebrve's warnings, and the church was virtually destroyed after the Novus Ordo Missae was released. That led the archbishop to establish the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) to maintain the priesthood of Jesus Christ on earth.

    Today, VII churches do not use Latin in their liturgies, teach that a baby needs to be baptized ASAP after birth, that cohabitation, the pill, abortion, and premarital affairs are sinful, and the most basic precept of attending Mass on Sunday.

    If it wasn't for Abp. Lefebrve, there would have been no Summorum Pontificum, and possible Cardinal Ratzinger would not have been elected Pope Benedict XVI. Liberals hate the pope and don't care what he says. Laymen think they run the Church, but they don't. The pope is in charge, not the laymen, the priests, nor the bishops.
