I wanted to take a moment to thank Mr. Verrecchio. I have expressed gratitude generally, for saying so many things that I try to say – but far better, and supported by a professional level of research and polish that is exceedingly rare.
But this time, I’m thanking him for bad night’s sleep. I’ve had people thank me for weird things like this in the past. I never understood the gratitude. I get it, now.
Specifically, I didn’t sleep much last night, after reading this exceptional piece: https://akacatholic.com/beware-the-institutional-church-valid-catholic-hoax/
Please read it.
Below are a couple of quotes as a teaser, but please do click the link above, and read the whole article.
Pope Pius XII:
We deplore and condemn the pernicious error of those who dream of an imaginary Church, a kind of society that finds its origin and growth in charity, to which, somewhat contemptuously, they oppose another, which they call juridical [“Institutional”]. (ibid., no. 65)
“The Holy Father went on to provide the true doctrine:”
There can be no real opposition or conflict between the invisible mission of the Holy spirit and the juridical [“Institutional”] commission of Ruler and Teacher received from Christ, since they mutually complement and perfect each other. (ibid.)
There’s really no way around Pope Pius XII’s words. Holy Mother Church is incapable of dissociative identity disorder, and God would never allow His spotless bride to feed her children poison.
So, here’s something to ponder: considering the abominable state of affairs in the Novus Ordo, especially considering the almost complete absence of virtue amongst its prelates, at what point does it become insulting to God to insist that these people are receiving valid sacraments?
I used to attend a diocesan TLM. After they locked us out last year, hid inside their rectories, refused to administer sacraments – including extreme unction – I could not reconcile the almost universal cowardice.
This was back when nobody was sure whether this was going to be a scary thing or not. The reason I say that is not to excuse these men, but to emphasize that it is completely irrelevant.
The only men who I saw never stop administering sacraments were men who were traditionally ordained, by a bishop who was traditionally consecrated (by a bishop who was traditionally consecrated…). Since February of last year, these are the only men from whom I will receive sacraments.
They didn’t tuck tail and run. Satan and Opus Dei expressed frustration with that through Michael “I’m Not Gay Anymore” Virus, and his minion Christine Niles, quite explicitly.
As the farce progressed, I could not reconcile the unbelievable (and almost universal) blindness to the absolute absurdity of this global fraudulent covenant.
The lack of wisdom, bravery, and self sacrifice shouted with the voice of a child: “The emperor is naked!”
To think that we have thousands of these effete losers gaslighting millions of Catholics into taking a poisonous injection derived from murdered children while pretending as if we are morally required to consent to global tyranny, and pretending that it is morally acceptable to participate in intrinsic evil – is apocalyptic.
We are to assume that these men have received a valid Eucharist every day of their adult lives?
We are to assume that this many men simply are such losers that receiving Our Lord’s body and blood and all of the sanctifying grace that entails – on a daily basis – for their entire adult lives, and it … what? Didn’t stick?
I know the type of reader who follows this blog. Tell me if that passes the smell test.
Tell me, with a straight face, that you don’t believe you would be a far better person if you had the opportunity to receive Our Lord (worthily) every single day of your life.
Frankly, to suggest otherwise is blasphemy.
So, I apologize for offending some of you, but I think it is becoming blasphemous to suggest that the Novus Ordo sacraments are valid – at least at this point.
I’ve fought this opinion for decades. I hate this opinion.
If I were a Novus Ordo priest, I would seek a conditional ordination immediately, even if very quietly. I’ve lost friends over this opinion. It sucks, but I can’t change my own mind, and I think last year was the smoking gun.
Edit: I’ve received criticism over the phrase “even if very quietly,” above. Note, I didn’t say “secretly.” But, look, I’m just a layman sorting through all this. There could be very solid reasons that it should not be “quiet” at all. I certainly wouldn’t be, but … I never am.
In any event, take that comment or leave it. I certainly could be wrong. I defer to … anybody with proper authority.
Edit 2: Some comments have made me realize that may owe you guys an apology. I laid a lot on some of you without explaining why, as dire as this all is, it is actually incredible and tangible evidence that we are nearing the end of this eclipse. In other words – and you may think I’m nuts – but the worse it gets, the more excited I get.
I will explain why in a subsequent post soon – after a confession, prayer, and a solid fast. I should have done that before making this post, but I’m sure Louie did, and I’m just talking about his work.
In the meantime, see my reply below regarding ecclesia supplet facultatem.
Don’t forget: Our Queen Mother was assigned this battle before Adam took his first breath. She’s got this, by the grace and power of her Son, and she’s got you – so long as you’re wielding her weapon and shield.
