APRIL 21, 2019 – EASTER SUNDAY DOUBLE FEAST OF THE FIRST CLASS

MEDITATION ON EASTER SUNDAY:
The days of violet are gone. The voices of the Old Testament prophets Isaias and Jeremias are stilled. The Alleluias and Glorias that have been missing since Septuagesima return once more, in profusion. “Hence it is that at the Gloria today the bells are rung, the organ peals forth, the statues and pictures are uncovered, and a few moments afterward the glad Alleluias, silenced for nine weeks past, are heard again in jubilant tones, soaring in their triple repetition higher and higher until they seem to mingle with the songs of the angels in heaven.” As the great drama of our redemption draws to an end, let us join in the joy of Holy Mother Church today as she specially sets before us after Communion the great psalm of praise to our risen Lord: “Praise the Lord, all ye nations; praise him, all ye people. For his mercy is confirmed upon us; and the truth of the Lord remaineth forever” (Psalms 116:1-2/DRV). Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

APRIL 20, 2019 – HOLY SATURDAY DOUBLE FEAST OF THE FIRST CLASS

MEDITATION ON HOLY SATURDAY:
Through these rites of Holy Saturday, historically and devotionally so gripping, from ancient ages the most solemn of all Vigils of the year, we see Our Lord revealed to us in specific ways, and we in turn are called upon to reflect Him in those ways in our own lives. Together, on this, the “Mother of All Holy Vigils,” as St. Augustine calls it, we hear the Lessons that teach us the history of our Faith, the Old Law before the fulfillment of our redemption under the New. We come through the darkness of Our Lord’s Passion and Death into the light, as together we now celebrate His glorious Resurrection.

WARNING AGAINST THE CONCILIAR-BUGNINI FALSE NEW LATIN RITES OF 1962. The Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as the opening salvo toward the completely-fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Holy Saturday, making the “Motu” rite like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) eliminating two of the three ancient prayers blessing the new fire; (2) replacing the traditional ceremony for inscribing and blessing the Paschal candle with a new one, completely fabricated by the Modernists; (3) eliminating the ancient procession of the triple candle into the church while Lumen Christi was thrice invoked; (4) modifying the ancient Paschal Proclamation, the Exsultet; (5) eliminating eight of the twelve Old Testament prophecies foretelling the coming of Christ; (6) directing that the Collects be chanted at the sedilia rather than the altar, in the manner of the Novus Ordo “presider”; (7) dividing and partially eliminating the traditional Litany of the Saints; (8) introducing a spurious “Renewal of Baptismal Vows” in the vernacular, the first time that the vernacular is explicitly permitted as an integral part of a liturgical rite; (9) eliminating in their entirety from the Mass the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar and the Last Gospel, as does the Novus Ordo service; (10) moving the entire service to nighttime instead of before noon with the First Mass of Easter immediately following at noon, in contravention of the traditional principle that during Lent, in both Western and Eastern rites, there is a symbolic inversion of time as a consequence of the Fall, with the restoration of normality coming only with the victory of the Lord on Easter morning.

APRIL 19, 2019 – GOOD FRIDAY DOUBLE FEAST OF THE FIRST CLASS

MEDITATION ON GOOD FRIDAY:
There are few scenes liturgically more impressive than the appearance of the church at the beginning of the rites of Good Friday. The bare floor, the dismantled altar, the veiled crucifix, the unlighted candles. Then, when the procession of the celebrant in black vestments with servers has silently made its way to the sanctuary, the sudden prostration before the altar, where the celebrant annihilates himself in abject penitence — all these are things that can hardly fail to produce an effect upon each one of us. Then follow the sorrowful lessons and tracts and the reading of the Passion of Our Lord, producing a sense of desolation that no other service in the liturgical year approaches. On this day the Church gives her churches an appearance of desolation and clothes her clergy in mourning. Today the Church, and we who enter the church, are in mourning because Our Lord has died to redeem us.

After the celebration of Good Friday at the University of Durham, England, one year, Rev. Dr. T.C.G. Glover, JCD, a former priest of the Roman Oratory, who continued to celebrate the Sacred Triduum in the traditional Roman form, not in the Conciliar-Bugnini “Motu/Extraordinary/1962+” false rites, was asked why he didn’t celebrate the New Rite of Holy Week introduced into the New Order church by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini. His answer was pure Dr. Glover at his very best: “I would rather get drunk in a brothel than celebrate that crap.”

APRIL 18, 2018 – MAUNDY THURSDAY DOUBLE FEAST OF THE FIRST CLASS

MEDITATION ON MAUNDY THURSDAY:
We have today to consider a great and awful mystery of betrayal. This betrayal is commemorated in the special Canon used only at this Mass of Maundy Thursday. Judas, one of the twelve chosen disciples of Our Lord, taught by Him for three years, confirmed in the faith by so many miracles, loaded with graces, becomes the tool of those who plot the death of Our Lord. He traitorously sells His Lord to the high priest for the ancient price of a slave, thirty Roman denarii. But Judas here is not only an historical figure of some 2000 years ago. He is spiritually each one of us, sinners, for whom Christ so grievously began His suffering and death this night. Let us consider the betrayal of Judas and what it forces us to confront in our own spiritual lives.

April 17, 2018 – Wednesday in Holy Week – “Spy” Wednesday Privileged Ferial Day

MEDITATION ON “SPY” WEDNESDAY:
Today is known as “Spy Wednesday,” in remembrance of the traitorous deed of Judas Iscariot. The Introit gives us a foretaste of what is to come after the passion and death of our Lord: “That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth” (Philippians 2:10/DRV). But immediately juxtaposed to this acknowledgment of divine glory is the other side of the equation. This is the refrain that will be repeated at every Hour of the Divine Office beginning tomorrow: “He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:8/DRV).

APRIL 14, 2019 – PALM SUNDAY SEMIDOUBLE SUNDAY OF THE FIRST CLASS

AS HOLY WEEK, THE MOST SACRED WEEK OF THE YEAR, BEGINS, true Catholics traditionally complete the daily chores that might be an obstacle to participating in the ancient, traditional rites of Holy Week. All true Catholics should attend the traditional sacred rites not only on Palm Sunday but also on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. On Maundy Thursday we commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist, the First Mass, and the Ordination of the Apostles. The priesthood and the holy Eucharist are living events that should remind us of the continuing value of Christ’s act of redemption for the sin of man. Good Friday is an unforgettable reminder to all of us of the price of being a follower of Christ. We have to give something of ourselves to be followers of Christ. The Holy Saturday Vigil is the most solemn memorial of the central mystery of our redemption: Christ’s saving death and glorious resurrection. We are reminded that we are obligated as Catholics to carry Christ into our world.

WARNING AGAINST THE CONCILIAR-BUGNINI FALSE NEW LATIN RITES OF 1962. The Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as the opening salvo toward the completely-fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Palm Sunday, making the 1956-1962 rite like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) directing that red vestments be used, as in the Novus Ordo service, instead of the traditional violet vestments; (2) eliminating the Introit, Collect, Epistle, Responsory, Gospel, Preface, and Sanctus of the First Mass, after which the palms are blessed; (3) directing the priest to leave the altar and face the congregation Novus-Ordo style while blessing the palms; (4) eliminating four of the five ancient prayers of blessing; (5) eliminating the prayers and ceremonial of re-entering the church after the procession of the palms; (6) directing that the priest chant the final Collect facing the congregation Novus-Ordo style with his back to the Holy Tabernacle; (7) eliminating entirely the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar; (8) eliminating the beginning and end of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Matthew; (9) eliminating the Last Gospel, as in the Novus Ordo service.

MEDITATION ON PALM SUNDAY:
All the ceremonies of Palm Sunday — the blessing of the palms, the procession, the chanted Hosannas — are instituted by Holy Mother Church to recall the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem on this day. What a contrast, at only six days’ interval, between the honors rendered to Our Lord today and the affronts and blasphemies that will greet Him five days hence on Good Friday! Let us learn these three things from the great lesson taught us by Our Lord on Palm Sunday. First, to be content to rely not upon man, but upon God alone for consolation and the witness of our sorrows and sufferings. Second, to detach ourselves from earthly possessions, which often come at our soul’s cost. Third, to set no store by earthly greatness, notice, fame, or applause. “For after all these things do the heathens seek” (Matthew 6:32/DRV).

Holy Week Is a Week to Put Aside Earthly Concerns and Contemplate The Momentous Events Celebrated during the Traditional Catholic Solemn Holy Week Rites

From: Patricius Anthony, TRADITIO Columnist

The Week that Changed the World

The Disregard and Ingratitude for What Jesus Christ Did
During “The Week that Changed the World”
Does Not Bode Well for Mankind’s Future
The Grave Economic, Political, and Social Problems
That the West Now Faces
Are Ultimately the Result of the Indifference toward God
With the Neglect of Holy Week as a Prime Example
Every True Catholic Should Treat the Days of Holy Week
As Days to Put aside Earthly Concerns
And Walk with Christ on Every Day
On Which the Traditional Latin Solemn Rites
Are Celebrated during That Holy Week that Changed the World

At one time, Holy Week — Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday — was recognized and commemorated by the Western world as a solemn period where earthly matters were put aside, and focus was directed to history’s most seminal event. Most businesses were closed or had reduced hours, especially during the Sacred Triduum of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Entertainment and leisurely activities were curtailed while schools and universities’ “spring breaks” coincided with Holy Week, as mankind contemplated, as best it could, the momentous events which took place in a small backwater outpost of the mighty, and at the time unknowing, Roman Empire.

Tragically, for the human race those days are a thing of the discredited past. Sports are played, most people work throughout the week, financial affairs are routinely conducted — while Easter Sunday is not seen as a celebration of the Resurrection, but of egg hunts. In politics, it can be safely assumed that there will be no acknowledgment of the week, but business as usual. The triumph of secular humanism is almost complete.

Such disregard and ingratitude for what took place two millennia ago does not bode well for mankind’s future, especially in those lands and among those peoples who once revered these sacred days. The ominous eternal consequences of such indifference was warned about by the Divine Savior as recounted in St. Matthew’s Gospel (10/32/DRV): “Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven.”

Although most people do not realize it, the grave economic, political, and social problems which the West now faces are ultimately the result of the indifference toward God — with the neglect of Holy Week as a prime example. None of the current abominations such as abortion and “gay” marriage could have ever been possible had human societies been dedicated toward Christ.

This indifference will not go unpunished. The problems that the West faces today cannot be resolved as a matter of the right policy, but are at their core spiritual. Redress of social ills will not come about through the ballot box or reform. The forces that seek the West’s destruction must be fought on the spiritual plane. These forces have long understood this fact and have tried to — and largely succeeded in — removing religion from society, allowing it only on Sundays, and if trends continue, even Sunday worship will no longer be tolerated. Those who seek to preserve the fruits of Western civilization must realize that this is a religious contest.

The disastrous consequences of mankind attempting to set its own rules is on display for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. The cultural depravity that abounds in contemporary life is stunning and has gone on for so long and with such intensity that most people are now desensitized to it. Creating jobs, halting mass immigration, appointing “conservative” judges, and the like will do little to overthrow the cultural Marxism that permeates society today.

Until the Divine Entity on which Holy Week is centered is once again placed at the summit of Western life, the chances of resolving its various crisis are nil.

Sveti Grob Života

 

Velika Subota! Sin Božji počiva u grobu! Prije više od dvije tisuće godina ovaj je događaj preokrenuo ljudsku povijest punu očaja i besmisla nakon pada naših praroditelja u prvi grijeh.

Zmija se radovala svojoj prividnoj pobjedi. Trijumfu koji je stvorio kraljevstvo tame za sve duše koje poput Jude Iškariota odbaciše Boga. Trideset srebrenjaka kao cijena izdaje za Neprocjenjivoga. Onoga za kojim toliko žuđahu proroci staroga saveza. Za Mesijom kojega očekivaše po obećanju Oca Nebeskoga.

》Ako su mene progonili i vas će progoniti《, riječi su Kristove koje se duboko urezaše u srca svetih apostola. 》Nije sluga veći od svojeg Gospodara《, potvrda je trpljenju i mučeništvu tolikim kršćanima koji se primjerom svojega Božanskog Učitelja, u nadi obećanja vječnog života posvjedočiše vjeru do prolijevanja svoje krvi. Krv Kristova u krvi mučenika! 》Ne dođoh da donesem mir već mač.《 Riječi Gospodinove koje savršeno pojašnjavaju Put Boli (Via Dolorosa) i Put Križa (Via Crucis) koji prolazi kroz burnu povijest Njegova Jedna, Sveta, Katolička i Apostolska Crkva.

Neki su sveti crkveni oci prvih stoljeća, kao i sveci novijega vremena posvjedočili da će Crkva posljednjih vremena po uzoru na Božjega Sina doživjeti istu sudbinu koju je Gospodin dočekao po Božjoj providnosti: put trpljenja, najužasnijega progona i Gospodinov grob. Mnogim katoličkim misticima je isto objavljeno.

Negdje pročitah kako će neki katolici pred dolazak Antikrista posvjedočiti svoju vjernost Bogu do tog stupnja da će svojim primjerom prednjačiti svjedočanstvom vjere i smrti u odnosu na kršćane prvih vremena do cara Konstantina, pa i nakon njega.

Katolička Crkva je i nakon spomenutog razdoblja imala svoj trnoviti hod. Najteža su njena razdoblja mnoštvo neobraćenih kršćana koji su zbog pogrešnih razloga postajali članovima Crkve. Još pogubnije su pojave hereza koje su potkopavale Crkvu iznutra. To je bio najstrašniji bič koji je uništavao vjeru odvajajući mnoge duše od Boga. Progonstva kojima smo i danas svjedoci nisu ništa u usporedbi s krivovjerjem. Ubojstvo tijela je ništa naspram ubojstva duše. 》Ne bojte se onih kojih ubijaju tijelo…《, upozorio nas je Gospodin.

Katolička Crkva je u posljednjim vremenima koja još mogu potrajati izvjesno vrijeme. Heretici su nakon preminuća velikoga i siromašnog pape Pija XII. preuzeli Svetu Rimsku Stolicu i uveli lažna učenja koja su izvitoperila vjeru pokoncilskih katolika, što je i bio njihov krajnji cilj. Masonerija se koristi rafiniranim sredstvima kako bi zarazila katolike svim mogućim krivovjerjima, te nametnula sotonske nauke i proglasila pobjedu nad Katoličkom Crkvom i njenim božanskim Utemeljiteljem.

Nadalje, ciljevi su slobodnih zidara stvaranje nove religije koja će ujediniti svijet i pokloniti se Antikristu. Adonai (Bog Otac) kojega masonerija smatra ‘zlim biblijskim Bogom’ trebao bi prepustiti mjesto ‘dobrome bogu Luciferu’: palome anđelu koji je svjestan da nema puno vremena na raspolaganju. Lucifera jednostavno pokreće iracionalna mržnja prema Bogu Stvoritelju i njegovim ljudskim stvorovima. Vrhunac izopačene ambicije u arhitekturi carstva zla i neodoljiva Luciferova želja da se proglasi bogom kako bi se iskalio mržnjom na izgubljene duše koje su pod njegovom vlašću. Razlog je taj što su ljudi vrhunac Božjega stvaranja. Bog je stvorio čovjeka na svoju sliku pa je idealan objekt mržnje od strane Lucifera koji poznaje činjenicu da je čovjek Stvoritelju najdraže stvorenje. Udarac u mjesto koje je najbolnije za Stvoritelja, s time da je Lucifer svjestan činjenice koliko je čovjek vrijedan Bogu: Sin Božji je umro za grijehe čovjeka kako bi ga iskupio od velike krivnje otimajući ga od Lucifera, i s potpunim pravom vraćajući duše koje je stvorio pod vlast svoje Očinske Ljubavi! A Ljubav je stvarnost koju Lucifer ne razumije u biti i ona ga zbunjuje, razoružava i uništava. Božja Ljubav je za čovjeka tolika da je Providnost namijenila otkupljenim i spašenim dušama Božje kraljevstvo; isto ono u kojemu je Lucifer prije davne pobune imao visoku službu u anđeoskoj hijerarhiji. To je za njega još jedan razlog koji ga hrani mržnjom. Ambicija da postane bog!

Zlo je zapravo odsutnost dobra. Tama je stvarnost koja nema svoju fizikalnu podlogu. Svjetlost ju ima. Ona se sastoji od fotonskih čestica i fizikalna je stvarnost. Svjetlost ustvari posjeduje potpis Svevišnjega. Božanska duhovna svjetlost posjeduje još veću suprotnost duhovnoj tami koja je grijeh što rađa smrt.

Danas dok Sin Božji leži u grobu moramo se posvjestiti kako je njegova sveta smrt i privremeno boravište u grobu života za naše otkupljenje i spasenje isti onaj Sveti Grob Gospodnji koji će nas osloboditi naših grijeha kojima smo zaslužili grob truleži i vječne smrti. Cijena grijeha je smrt kako je zapisano u Svetom pismu. No u nadi u uskrsnuće tijela i duše po Kristovu Grobu prinesimo grobove i ostatke tijela naših najmilijih, te braće i sestara koji se žrtvovaše za Boga i poradi ljubavi prema žrtvovanome Kristu i nama, kako bi zaslužili vječni život u nebeskom Jeruzalemu.

I za kraj ovoga posta prinesimo Bogu Ocu, Sinu i Duhu Svetomu u revnoj ljubavi za naše otkupljenje i spasenje – koje nam se očitovalo u Svetom Grobu – našu vječno dužnu zahvalnost u molitvi Velike Subote:

Isuse, Spasitelju svijeta! Tvoje je presveto Tijelo poslije pretrpljene gorke muke i smrti čekalo, počivajući u grobu, slavno uskrsnuće. Preponizno Ti se klanjam, prostrt pred slavnim grobom presvetoga Tvoga Tijela, i srdačno Ti zahvaljujem za muku i smrt koje si pretrpio za naše spasenje: podaj mi, molim Te, volju i moć da Tvoj božanski primjer nasljedujem te sadašnji život tako provodim da mi ni smrt ni grob ne budu strašni, nego dapače ugodan prijelaz u vječni život. Po Kristu Gospodinu našem. Amen.

Liber Usualis: Christus factus est pro nobis

 

Otkupio si nas, Gospodine, svojom Krvlju, iz svakoga plemena i jezika, iz svakog puka i naroda i učinio nas kraljevstvom Boga našega. Milosrdna ću djela Gospodnja pjevati u vijeke, svojim ću ustima navješćivati Tvoju vjernost kroz sve naraštaje!

Krist je postao za nas poslušan sve do smrti, i to do smrti na križu. Zato Bog njega uzvisi i darova mu ime koje je nad svakim imenom.

Na Veliki Petak je duhovno korisno poslušati prigodnu gregorijansku antifonu Christus factus est:

 

Kraljevski put Svetoga Križa

 

Mnogima se čini tvrda ova riječ: 》Odreci se sebe, uzmi svoj križ i slijedi Isusa.《 (Matej 16, 24).

Ali mnogo će im teže biti slušati ovu zadnju riječ: 》Odlazite od mene, prokleti u oganj vječni.《 (Matej 25, 41). 

Koji sada rado slušaju i slijede riječ o križu, neće se tada preplašiti, kad budu slušali vječnu osudu. Tada će svi sljedbenici križa koji su u životu postali slični Raspetomu, pristupiti Kristu sucu s velikim pouzdanjem.

Što se dakle bojiš uzeti križ po kojem se ide u kraljevstvo?

Mnogi se žele s njim radovati, a malo ih hoće za Krista podnijeti trpljenje. Mnogi idu za Gospodinom do lomljenja kruha, ali malo tko ide da s njim pije čašu muke. Mnogi se dive njegovim čudesima, a malo tko slijedi sramotu križa. Mnogi ljube Isusa dok ih ne snađu nevolje.

Uzljubi križ Isusov. Drži ga u svojoj sobi, nosi ga uza se i primakni ga dnevno svojim ustima. Najodličnija je ljubav križu Isusovu, ako se mrtviš neprestano tako, da se duhovno odvojiš od svega u svijetu, kao što ni njemu raspetomu na križu nije ništa ostalo što bi mu dalo utjehu ili olakšanje.

Ne bježi pred Isusovim križem, jer ti je jedino u njemu spasenje. Često razmišljaj o Spasiteljovom križu, pa ti neće biti tako gorak, nego će ti plodovi križa biti još slađi.

Ako svijet ljubi zdravo i lijepo tijelo, neka moje tijelo bude ranjeno svetim čavlima dnevnih žrtava. Ako se svijet veseli novcu i zlatu, ja ću se radovati u svojoj siromaštini. Ako svijet stremi za častima, ja ću biti počašćen ako Raspeti na moju glavu položi svoju trnovu krunu poniženja. Ako svijet uživa u lijepom odijelu i bogatom posjedovanju, ja ću se ogrnuti u skromnost kao u ogrtač kojim su za porugu ogrnuli Spasitelja. Ako svijet žudi za sjetilnim užitkom, meni neka budu ugodni bičevi kojima su Isusa bičevali.

Himan Velikog Petka:

Oj zdravo, Križu, nado sva!

U dane muke Gospodnje

Umnoži milost dobrima

I digni krivnju s grešnika!

Naš spase, sveta Trojice;

Nek svaki duh veliča Te,

Ti dijeliš križa plodove

Ti vječnu slavu podaj nam. Amen.

 

Ne ogluši se u buci svijeta Kristovom blagom pozivu kada te zove u crkvu na tradicionalnu Svetu Misu, osobnu i zajedničku molitvu i na svetu ispovijed, te na konkretnija djela bratske kršćanske ljubavi. Spasitelj rado govori duši koja ga sluša.

Od nemara za nadahnuća Tvoja, oslobodi nas, Isuse!
