Missing Mass these days is tragic

Even though I missed Sunday Mass today because I have another severe cold and allergy symptoms and excused according to the law itself, it is still tragic. Every time I do not attend Mass, plus anytime I do and do not meet a single Catholic girl before or afterwards, it is still tragic. The fact that my adoptive parish church is thirty miles away from home is challenging  in itself on a happy day, never mind on a rainy day. 

This comes to show that despite living in a major American city with over 180,000 inhabitants, there is not one Catholic house of worship that offers the Traditional Latin Mass. There is no hope for the future. Crime and drugs all over the place. Ecclesiastical crimes are committed on a daily basis and nothing is done about them. No cassocks, no habits, no discipline, no reprimands. 

In my last post I showed some screenshots of the Facebook page for NEW Worcester, the "New Evangelization Worcester for Youth and Young Adults." They showed nuns dancing to Taylor Swift and the Steubenville East Conference that took place recently in the Archdiocese of Boston (with Cardinal Sean's blessing and presence). 

For those who know me, I don't use Facebook or Twitter for good reasons. When I revisited the page last week, they now require a login. So I am considered a humbug.

Because I am more Catholic than most of the employees (clerical and lay) of the Diocese of Worcester, I get punished indirectly. There is a TLM at a monastery chapel in a rural part of the Diocese, but there will never be one within the city limits of Worcester or a bordering town anytime soon. 

It doesn't help that we have the worst pope in living memory, a topic which I will address in my next post.

Wonder why I can't get someone?...blame the hierarchy

The Archdiocese of Toronto sings songs to the pagan goddess of nature, Gaia, during the televised TV mass for the homebound and elderly. Exposed by The Remnant

Down here in New England, the youth and young adult Catholics are being improperly served and taught the Faith. There are too many examples to name, but when our youth are being encouraged to attend conferences approved by the bishops that are anything put Catholic in character, then we all are in trouble. 

One USCCB survey of seminarians and younger priests clearly states that contemporary worship music influenced their priestly vocations. This is tragic. The thing passes on with events like the ones put on by Lifeteen and the Franciscan University of Steubenville. This following video features Dominican nuns dancing to a Taylor Swift song:


This same act is approved by the Diocese of Worcester. Below are Facebook screenshots that prove that both Worcester and Boston are in favor of contemporary worship instead of the council of Trent:

Events like these plus the Novus Ordo liturgies that most of these kids attend in their parishes are part of the crises in the Church today. They are the reasons why I am have trouble finding a Catholic companion.

Late Fr. Keane's former chapel up for sale

St. Roger and St. Mary Chapel, the former independent Latin Mass chapel in West Roxbury established by the late Fr. John Keane, is now for sale. The property at 95 Rockland Street is listed for $395,000 by Donahue Real Estate. According to city records, the owner is the Society of Saint Pius X, who bought the property thinking they were going to reopen it as a chapel. But with only a seating capacity of 90 and no parking lot, it is no longer useable as a church. Mass has not been said there for quite some time. 

The SSPX currently rent office space in Woburn, where Mass is said every Sunday morning at 9:00 am. There is also an endangered parish which could get axed by the Archdiocese of Boston, which the SSPX should try to acquire.
