WARNING: Do not donate to Boston Catholic Appeal

Cardinal Sean is at it again. He made every parish play a ten minute video before Mass yesterday asking everyone to donate to the annual Boston Catholic Appeal next weekend, March 1-2, 2014. While the video is supposed to convince parishioners to help support the local church and the agencies the Archdiocese operates and how they help strengthen the parishes, this notion is totally false.

What spoiled it at the end is that the credits state that it was filmed at a parish in South Carolina.

So I warn all Faithful Catholics who reside in the Archdiocese of Boston NOT TO DONATE TO THE "CATHOLIC" APPEAL UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Instead, exclusively support your local parish or a Traditional Catholic religious order that is faithful to the Magisterium.

Not a very Happy St. Valentine's Day

I was sick yesterday, big time, vomiting. I also could not go out and find my sweetheart on St. Valentine's Day.

To make matters worse, a few more federal judges have ruled that banning sodomy is unconstitutional, which makes me want to vomit even on a good day.

With this homosexual agenda being pushed too far, We The People have to start looking now at the 2016 Presidential Election. WE NEED A TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC PRESIDENT!

Faithful Catholics, if you are at least 35 years old, were born in the USA, and have lived in the USA for 14 years, you are eligible to run for President or Vice President.

Consider running, because chances are things will get worse if a major party candidate gets in.

Not responsibility of any political candidate or their committee.

Why our bishops have been doing nothing

The following interview recorded on the radio program The Voice of Catholic Tradition explains why our Catholic bishops have done nothing to protect and defend the Faith, including the New York bishops who allow the fake Catholic Governor to receive Holy Communion despite asking pro-lifers to leave the state:

The newest Novus Ordo temple in Boston Archdiocese

Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church.

-Saint Ignatius of Antioch, First Century A.D.

I begin with this very important quote from Saint Ignatius on his feast day to put the following in perspective: most recent disturbing news item that took place last Sunday in the Boston Archdiocese. This one involves one of my professional topics: architecture.

More specifically, Cardinal O'Malley dedicated the newest Novus Ordo temple, named for Saint Bonaventure in Plymouth. (Click here for the photo gallery, and view at your own risk!)

The only religious item that is orthodox is the crucifix, and that's it. If you look at the photos, they pretty much show the Novus Ordo "Dedication of a Church and Altar," altar girls, and a bunch of pagan-looking rituals instead of the solemn Consecration that a church building of Sacred Tradition would undergo. The Blessed Sacrament is of to the side on a pedestal.

When Saint Ignatius means "a proper Eucharist," he means the received and approved rites of the Church that began at the Last Supper in the Upper Room. As Tradition holds it, the First Christians offered what is called the Traditional Latin Mass, albeit in the catacombs because Christianity was illegal in the Ancient Roman Empire until 313.  

In terms of "the bishop shall appear," this means a bishop who says the "proper Eucharist" (i.e. the Traditional Latin Mass). Neither Cardinal O'Malley nor one of his auxiliary bishops have offered the Traditional Latin Mass here, same with most of the presbyters. So therefore, the Archdiocese of Boston is mission territory.

Clearly, the architects of this church building did a lousy job on the interior sanctuary. Instead of hiring architects who design traditional buildings, the Archdiocese will often go to the modernist who will botch a job like this for generations to come.

Speaking of modernist architects, I was forced out of my architecture school because of my traditional-minded design philosophies, so I am on a fundraising crusade to help start a classical architecture school in the Boston area. For more info and/or donate, please click here.

I would never, ever design a church building in a modernist style, ever!
