Fr. Peter Carota has been in Mexico for some time, serving as many souls as he can.  I take a bit from each of a number of posts below.  He is experiencing quite a bit of resistance to the traditional practice of the Faith there, especially from wayward priests and religious, some of whom he describes as drunk and materialistic.  These are some of the people most opposed to the traditional practice of the Faith, because, it must be said, it stands as a rebuke to so much of their own apostolates, such as they are.  Unfortunately, they also influence many lay people there, who are also resistant to the TLM and the traditional Faith.  Is it different in the Mexico City area than it is in Guadalajara? I ask because Fr. Romanowski said many Guadalajarans are still attached to more traditional piety, even if not the TLM, like kneeling to receive Communion.

Some snapshots of Fr. Carota’s experiences:

I had to go pay the electricity bill in another city, Tenancingo.  All the micro buses where full.  So I hitch hiked.  The woman who stop was going to the same city.  She ended up being great friends with Herman Gabriela.  We prayed the Holy Rosary all the way.  As I was leaving her, I told her (with kindness) that the tight pants she was wearing offend God greatly.  She accepted my correction and said she wears them because it is easier to work in them.  [My wife has kind of objected to this kind of admonishment, especially by men, before. What do you think?  I don’t have a problem with it. We’re certainly not going to change adhering to the blase’ status quo]

I have compadres here who work on Sunday and sell tight pants to woman.  I keep on lovingly telling these people it is wrong.

Last night people arrived for the Latin Mass and for spiritual direction.  Also a 17 year old man who wants to become a priest with the Augustinians.  But I told him how liberal they are and that many of the ones I have known are into money and get drunk. I hated to talk bad about priests to a young man who wants to become a priest.  But he could lose his vocation and possibly his faith if he does not know the situation of the priesthood. [Boy ain’t that the truth. I know a young man who for years was just certain he wanted to be a priest, then he went on retreat to a group that has a pretty good reputation and they absolutely destroyed his interest in the priesthood. It was amazing – a two week retreat, and he came back a radically different person, and has shown no sign of changing since. We still have no idea what happened, other than that they encouraged him to date and, maybe more, IYKWIM]

Another woman came to talk to me about her son who has some spirit that sleeps with him in his bed.  She also told me that her TV gets pornography.  I am begging everyone to get rid of the TV, dress modest, not work on Sunday and go to Holy Mass. [Doesn’t it seem there is an inordinate amount of very marked demonic activity in Mexico?  I know a lot of Hispanics are mixed up in the occult, and many more are still very superstitious – there are shocking items for sale in Mexican markets near our house, all kinds of potions and spells, supposedly.  What’s up with that?]

WE are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to know what will get us to hell and what we can do to avoid them.

We waited to have the Latin Mass so that the family of Leonardo could experience it.  He loves it and wanted his family to experience it.  The man who drove the small bus had never experience it before and he said it gave him a peace that he had never felt before.

Before we started offering the Holy Mass, I showed this picture below to help the people understand that the Mass is a sacrifice, not a feel good prayer……


…….Then we began to talk about the holy Mass and true Catholic morals.  We talk about it being a contemplative prayer directed to God and not to man.  I explain to the people how the masons, (who were behind Presidente Elias Plutarco Calles killing of the Cristeros), are also to blame for getting rid of the Latin Mass because it united the Catholics in One Holy Catholic Church with One Holy Latin Mass.  (Yes there is an insignificant number who are Catholics and have the Divine Liturgy in Greek, Russian and Aramaic.  But in comparison to the Billion who used the Roman Missal in Latin the number is small.)

One of the young men said he did not understand Latin and I give the same answer; I am not speaking to you, I am speaking to God and He understands His sacred language.

I told her to listen to the good that is deep in her soul and not to the 3 enemies, the devil, the flesh and the world.  I said that God probably has a special mission for her, but the devil doesn’t want her to accomplish it.

Her parents do not go to mass every Sunday, even though they try to live good lives.  But I explained to the mother that her daughter was not protected because her father is not being the spiritual protector of the family by missing Sunday mass.

The grandma was a good Catholic and understood what I said.  She probably is 80 years old.  I told the mother and daughter that they would miss the holiness of the grandmother after she died.  These holy old women are not appreciated until they die.  Then the whole family usually separates and there is no one to pray for them.  

We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to have the whole truth and God’s protection from the devil by all of the sacramentals we correctly believe in, (The crucifix, Holy Water, St, Benedict’s medal and the scapular. [Yes, we are so blessed]

[The saddest of all……] It can be absolutely overwhelming entering into any Catholic Church for the new mass.  My friend invited me to his son’s baptism here in the parish of Malinalco.  During the mass, women all dressed alike in tight pants and in white tops were the ‘liturgy helpers’.  They did the reading and at the time of the consecration stand with candles near the altar.  Almost all of the women in the church were also in tight pants.  Those, who after mass had their children baptized, were even dressed worse.  The priest had everyone clap after the baptism. [While a lot of caucasian Americans dress horribly for weddings and sometimes on Sundays, I would have to say my that in my experience Hispanic women in this country are somewhat worse at dressing immodestly at Mass. It almost seems to be a contest to see who can wear the most revealing clothing. Even more, I have been to a number of Spanish Masses and find more of a problem with disinterested or distracted (phones, video games, etc) behavior.  Is that typical?  There are some wonderfully devout Catholics in Latin America, but Father notes some not so good ones here, and I have seen quite a few here north of the border. I have seen “anglos” do the same, but not in the same numbers. Is this criticism fair?  Is my experience too narrow or biased?  But then it seems there are some really very holy regions like Guadalajara.]

After mass and baptism I went to talked to two of the priests.  One I have known for 30 years.  The other one is new.  As I approached, I ran into my neighbor.  She said: ‘I have really bad news.  The pastor will not allow you to offer the Latin Mass in the neighborhood chapel.  She was so depressed and could not understand.  I was not surprised at all.  She is helping the pastor with the youth and thought he would say yes. [Note it was no imposition on the pastor at all.  He just doesn’t like the TLM, or Fr. Carota, or both]

After the baptism we went to the Fiesta.  There were a lot of people drinking too much and women terribly immodest.  I was asked to bless the food and I just tried to be kind to everyone who was there.  How do you fit in?  What do you say?   I just stayed enough time to eat and then told everyone good by.  I tried to be the presence of Christ in this party environment.

People, from all over the pueblo, continue to keep coming to go to confession or for the Latin Mass.  But I am afraid the priests will get angry.  I am not inviting them, they just hear that I am in town and keep coming.

What is so so frustrating is that you want to help people, but because you are traditional, most of the bishops and priests are against you.  And then you see the horrible condition that the Catholics are in and you wonder, ‘What can I do?’  ‘Don’t they see?’

I redundantly ask myself, ‘What is so horrible about traditional Catholicism, traditional modesty and traditional morals?  Isn’t there something worse that the bishops and priests can be worried about? [As Dismas would say……it’s a different religion, and it will brook no competition, especially from the former religion of the same name]

Meanwhile, I just keep on hearing confessions, praying for the sick, giving counsel to the lost and offering my private Holy Latin Mass.  All I can say, over and over again, is thanks be to God we are traditional Catholics and are trying to live lives pleasing to God. [I really admire Father’s charity.

Please pray for Fr. Carota. He is really wearing himself trying to reach as many souls as he possibly can with the traditional practice of the Faith.  He is a very good man.  We need so many more like him.

The real story of Bishop Finn’s tenure in Kansas City April 22, 2015

Since Bishop Robert Finn resigned – or was forced to resign – from his episcopal see in Kansas City, MO on Monday, he has once again been exposed to all manner of vicious attacks and outright calumnies.  Certainly there is some room for disappointment in Bishop Finn’s handling of matters related to one perverse priest in Kansas City during his tenure, but whatever failures of leadership Finn may have had pale in comparison to many of his much more left-wing confreres guilty of far worse failures including abject personal immorality, which in a number of cases is still ongoing.

I found the article via Bishop Gracida to give the most accurate accounting of Bishop Finn’s tenure, which included turning around one of the most disastrously heterodox and immoral dioceses in the country.  There are some nice quotes from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles below.  In a nutshell, and as I said yesterday, Bishop Finn was hated not for any particular alleged failings, but for who he was.  He was hated and vilified for his orthodoxy and the threat he posed to the status quo of the dominant left-wing elite in that small metropolitan area, which only sought excuses to attack him.  Sadly, the less than perfect handling of the Fr. Ratigan affair gave Bishop Finn’s enemies all the ammo they needed to bring him down.

As Bishop Gracida said, you can chalk this “victory” for the anti-Catholic left at the feet of the Kansas City Star and the National Heretic Reporter (I add emphasis and comments):

 After years as the American media’s object of blame in the Church’s sexual abuse scandal, and criticism from the left for his efforts to promote Church doctrine and traditions, the head of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph has been removed by the Vatican from his position…..

…….“It has been an honor and joy for me to serve here among so many good people of faith,” Bishop Finn said in a statement on his diocese’s website. “Please begin already to pray for whomever God may call to be the next Bishop of Kansas City – St. Joseph.”

Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Joseph Naumann, head of the archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, as apostolic administrator temporarily until Bishop Finn’s successor is named…….

……A grand jury found Bishop Finn guilty of a misdemeanor in 2012 for failing to report a priest, Fr. Shawn Ratigan, to the police after the diocese discovered that he had sexual images of minors on his computer. [Given how dozens of other prelates around the country got off absolutely scot-free for far worse crimes – if Finn’s even was a crime, see below – this was a gross miscarriage of justice.  Finn did very little, if anything, wrong. I cannot stress how much certain very influential Kansas City and Johnson County residents despised him, and wanted him gone. It was those very same elites who helped drive this criminal investigation.  Many lawyers have attested that the statute under which Finn was charged doesn’t even apply in his case, and that he almost certainly would have won a reversal on appeal, but Bishop Finn did not want to drag his own name, and, especially, that of his Diocese and the Church through the media again]

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, has defended Finn throughout the ordeal. In a press release today, Donohue offered the following point-by-point of the facts surrounding the case: [You know I’m not real high on Donahue, but he’s righter here than usual]

  • In 2010, a computer technician found disturbing crotch-shot photos of girls fully clothed on Ratigan’s computer; there was one naked photo of a non-sexual nature.
  • Even though there was no complainant, a police officer and an attorney were contacted by diocesan officials. They both agreed that the single naked photo did not constitute pornography.
  • After Ratigan attempted suicide, he was evaluated by a psychiatrist—at the request of Finn. Ratigan was diagnosed as depressed, but was not a pedophile.
  • Finn put restrictions on Ratigan, which he broke. The diocese then contacted the authorities, though it had no legal mandate to do so.
  • Finn ordered an independent investigation, even though there was no complainant.
  • When it was found that Ratigan was again using a computer, an examination revealed hundreds of offensive photos.
  • The Vicar General, Msgr. Robert Murphy, then called the cop
  • A week later Ratigan was arrested. 

“Though no child was ever touched or abused by Ratigan, it is clear that he never belonged in the priesthood,” said Donohue. “But Bishop Finn did not take a cavalier attitude toward his misconduct. If he had, Ratigan’s problem would have been ignored altogether, counting on the fact that no one ever called his office saying Ratigan had abused his child.” [Indeed, in many dioceses, this would have been completely buried. The authorities would have never even known about this had Bishop Finn and his administration not involved them]

Since assuming leadership of the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese in 2005 the bishop has been the subject of vitriol for undertaking efforts to refocus the diocese’s direction in union with the Church. Changes in staff and programs, along with steps to ensure the diocesan newspaper functions faithfully, drew liberal ire and public attack from the beginning.

Shortly after his arrival, a local newspaper [the distorter] circulated a derisive eight-page issue focused entirely on biasing the faithful against the bishop, placing it in numerous churches throughout the diocese.

[To me, the best defense of all……] Bishop Finn, an ardent defender of life throughout his episcopate, has been completely misrepresented in the media campaign against him, say the nuns in a contemplative women’s religious community in the diocese.

Our Bishop is a man who inspires faith, holiness, and a great zeal for the things of God,” Mother Cecilia, prioress for the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, told LifeSiteNews in November. “It breaks my heart that so many people only know about him what they hear from the blaring voices of the media and news outlets which have carried a prejudice against him from the beginning.” [Indeed. Some of the biggest points in Finn’s favor to my mind are the immense respect with which he is held by these wonderful nuns, his close attachment to the TLM and the great respect so many good traditional priests have for him, and Finn’s own great devotion to the Benedictines of Mary, who are practically his home away from home.  These are all testimonies to his character and devotion]

She also defended the bishop’s work to faithfully shepherd the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese, pointing out that it resulted in making him a target.

“Ten years ago, Bishop Finn was thrown into the midst of a diocese known far and wide for being a hotbed of heterodoxy and dissent,” Mother Cecilia said. “He made necessary and important changes right from the start, and those who were displeased have never forgotten nor forgiven.”

During Finn’s tenure, the diocese has experienced explosive growth in vocations to the priesthood and diaconate, he has opened the cause for canonization of a religious sister, and has overseen the building of two new churches.

The Vatican’s decision to investigate Finn surprised many given that several high-ranking Church officials have faced strong allegations of shielding sexual predators, yet have been left in place. [It’s a clear sign of the sea change that has occurred in the thinking or correlation of forces, if you will, at the top levels of the Church]

Mother Cecilia told LifeSiteNews last fall that despite the campaign against him, Bishop Finn has persisted in humility and fidelity to the Church throughout.

“Our bishop has edured and suffered so much throughout these years,” Mother Cecilia said. “I continue to be amazed and inspired by his humility, charity, and patient resignation amidst so many relentless attacks.”

More comments from Mother Cecilia here, including a few I quote below:

Mother Cecilia has heard many stories from the pre-Finn days, the most poignant being one in which a Kansas City woman described her horror when during his homily, a priest smashed the high altar with a hammer.

“Amidst energies, money and agendas that are directed toward secular and even sinful ‘progress,’ there is a striking lack of sympathy for the spiritual suffering that countless Catholics had been enduring for the previous two generations, where everything they held sacred was torn to pieces before their eyes,” she said.

“These spiritually disenfranchised souls had no voice, no media outlets, no financial resources, no advocate. But they prayed. And Bishop Finn was the answer to their prayers.”….

“I continue to be amazed and inspired by his humility, charity, and patient resignation amidst so many relentless attacks,” said Mother Cecilia.

Bishop Finn clearly understands the Church’s primary role is to sanctify her individual members, she said, likely the reason he’s drawn the ire of Church foes………

……She credits his caring and committed regard for her sisters as integral to the blooming of the Benedictines.

“He has been a tremendous source of inspiration to each of the sisters,” Mother Cecilia said. “His heroic witness to the faith of the Church, and his quiet determination to reform the diocese despite tremendous opposition is like having one of the saints you read about in history right before your eyes.”

Wow.  That is high praise.  I don’t know him well enough to go that far, but if these good nuns who know him so well  call him a saint, perhaps  some of those casually casting aspersions at the bishop should reconsider.

“There is nothing in this world that God loves more than the liberty of His Church” April 22, 2015

So said the great Bishop, Confessor, and Doctor of the Church St. Anselm, as quoted by Dom Prosper Gueranger in his Liturgical Year.  We have heard much over the past few years about “religious liberty,” and requests from bishops and other Church leaders in this country that the Church at least not be persecuted and allowed to operate on an equal footing to the sects and other religions.  Many have lamented this approach, since it fails to recognize the unique rights that must be accorded to the Church as the sole Body founded by Christ for the salvation of souls and His specific vehicle on earth for that purpose.  In fact, the Church is so much more intimately connected with God, being literally His Body on Earth, than any of the other Christian groups or other religions, that for many centuries it was seen not just as a right but a demand that the Church hold an exalted place in society.

Tragically, under the influence of liberalism and other errors, so many in the Church today, including almost the entire hierarchy, operates under a very grave misunderstanding of the Church’s rightful place in society, seeking only equivalence rather than the ascendance the Church demanded and was accorded for so many long centuries.  As we have seen to our dismay in recent years, we find that “equivalence” and “tolerance” are illusory, that it is a very short walk from a Church that tries to treat Herself as an equal to a Church that is attacked, persecuted, and put in a marked subordinate position.

I pray we have many more bishops like Saint Anselm again, men who fought, and were ready to die, for the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ and the primacy of place due the Church founded directly by Jesus Christ. I know I quote a lot for Gueranger, but this is perhaps the most important quotation I have ever made:

As bishop, his whole life was spent in fighting for the liberty of the Church.  Though gentle as a lamb by nature, he was all energy for this great cause.  He used to say: “Christ would not have His Spouse be a slave; there is nothing in this world that God loves more than the liberty of His Church.”  There was a time when the Son of God allowed Himself to be fettered with bonds in order that He might loosen us from the chains of our sins; but now that He has risen in triumph from the dead, He wills that His Spouse would be, like Himself, set free.  She cannot otherwise exercise the ministry of salvation confided to her by her divine Lord; and yet there is scarcely a single hundred years in her existence in which she has not had to fight for this holy liberty.  The rulers of this earth, with very few exceptions, have ever been jealous of her influence, and have sought means to lessen it at every turn. [Indeed, Ferrara argues persuasively that it was just to limit this influence and force the Church from her position of prominence that the endarkenment was born. Crushing the supremacy of the Church, such an “evil, medieval” ideal, was the prime interest of the work of Locke, Voltaire, Robespierre, and so many other leaders of the endarkenment.  They have succeeded, I imagine, beyond their wildest dreams]  In our own times there are numbers of her children who do not even know that she has any rights or privileges; they would be at a loss to understand you, if you told them that she is the Spouse of Christ, and therefore a queen; they think it quite enough for her, if she enjoy the same amount of freedom and toleration as the sects she condemns; and they cannot see how, under such conditions as these, the Church is not the kingdom He wishes her to be, but a mere slave.  [So true. And that is why many Catholics are quite troubled by aspects of the most recent Council and especially the implementation in practice we have seen, where the Church constantly abases herself and speaks, if anything, as quite nearly subordinate to the sects and other religions, rather than being exalted quite above them – but always from a preeminence of supreme charity and great humility]

St. Anselm would have abominated all such theories as these; so does every true Catholic. [Do they?  It’s very rare today.] He is not driven into disloyalty to the Church by the high-sounding words, progress and modern society; he knows that all such thinking comes from the Church having been deprived of rights.  One of these is that she should not only be recognized, in the secret of our conscience, as the one only true Church, but that, outwardly defended against every opposition or error.  Jesus, her divine Founder, promised to give her all nations as her inheritance; He kept His promise, and she was once the Queen and Mother of them all.  But nowadays, a new principle has been asserted, to the effect that the Church and all sects must be on an equal footing as far as the protection of the State goes.  The principle has been received with acclamation, and hailed as a mighty progress achieved by modern enlightenment: even Catholics, whose previous services to religion had endeared them to our hearts and gained our confidence, have become warm defends of this impious theory.  [Gueranger could plainly see, over 150 years ago, where all this acceptance of “enlightenment” theories would lead the Church.  “Defenders of this impious theory”……and yet, it must be asked, what of Dignitatis Humanae and Guadium Et Spes?]

Trying as were the times when St. Anselm governed the See of Canterbury, thy were spared the humiliation of producing and ratifying such doctrine as this.  The tyrannical interference of the Norman kings was an evil far less injurious than the modern system, which is subversive of the very idea of the Church.  Open persecution would be a boon, compared to the fashionable error of which we are speaking.  A winter torrent brings desolation in its track: but in the summer, when the flood is over, nature brings back her verdure and flowers. The errors which now prevail are like a great sea that gradually sweeps over the whole earth; and when the Church can find no spot whereon to rest, she will take her flight to Heaven, and men must expect the speedy coming of the Judge.

———–End Quote———-

Indeed. That seems more and more true today – that the Church is rapidly running out of room to maneuver, that we are in the midst of the Great Apostasy prophesied by St. John, and the Second Coming is right around the corner – give or take a century or millennium.

We know not the day nor the hour, but we do know when souls fall away, we often know when error is promoted, and we know when A is not like B.  Many Catholics see the pre-conciliar A as very unlike the present B.  How to square the corner, how to figure all this out?  Much better minds than I have been struggling this since before I was born, and I really have no idea.

But I will go on promoting what the Church believed for a very long time, in most cases throughout almost her entire history, and quoting from solid sources of the past.  I pray doing so provides some comfort and guidance to souls.  It does me, anyway.  The God-send of the past, of the Tradition, is that it can not be easily changed, in spite of the efforts of Cardinal Kasper and some others to rewrite history.  That’s another reason I prefer books to reading on computer/Kindle/whatever – electronic memory is arguably a lot easier to destroy than a library full of books.

Anyhoo.  Lunchtime.

A Psalm for our time April 22, 2015

I was praying Compline last night when a Psalm I’ve read probably hundreds of times suddenly penetrated the depleted uranium of my skull and caused a “Eureka!” moment.  Psalm 11 is the perfect Pslam for our time!  Wow…….how could I have missed it so many times before.

Yes, that’s the kind of penetrating analysis you pay absolutely nothing for here at veneremurcernui.  You get exactly what you pay for it.

Anyhoo……the Psalm, first from the Baronius Press Roman Breviary:

Save me, O Lord!  For no one now is faithful; truth has vanished from the sons of men.

Everyone speaks falsehood to his neighbor; with deceitful lips and a double heart they speak.

May the Lord destroy all deceitful lips, and the boastful tongue,

Those who say “We will glory in our eloquence; our lips are our own, who is our master?”

Because of the misery of the needy and the groans of the poor now will I arise, saith the Lord.

I will grant safety to them, I will act faithfully in this.

The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried by fire, freed from dross, sevenfold refined.

You, O Lord, will keep us and protect us from this generation forever.

About us the wicked strut, in Your mysterious wisdom, You have multiplied the sons of men.

Now the same Psalm, from the Douay-Rheims Bible:

Save me, O Lord, for there is no saint: truths are decayed among the children of men.

They have spoken vain things every one to his neighbor: with deceitful lips, and with a double heart they have spoken.

May the Lord destroy all deceitful lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things.

Who have said: We will magnify our tongue: our lips are our own, who is Lord over us?

By reason of the misery of the needy and the groans of the poor, now will I arise, saith the Lord. I will set him in safety.  I will deal confidently in his regard.

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried by fire, purged from the earth refined seven times.

Thou, O Lord, will preserve us: and keep us from this generation for ever.

The wicked walk round about: according to they highness, thou hast multiplied the children of men.

————End Psalm————

I don’t know about you, but it certainly feels more and more that truth has vanished from the “sons of men.”  And even more, how many falsehoods do we hear from our neighbors, even ostensible “good conservatives” or “good Christians” about things like sodomy, obliterating the understanding of marriage, fornication, pornography, and so much else?  When I hear some old protestant conservative Republican tell me “gays have a right to marry, they do have that right”……with deceitful lips and a double heart they speak.

So many around us now (we pray not ourselves) are convinced they can set aside, even overcome the Truth our Blessed Lord has revealed through their eloquence of words or simply naked force. But we know never have truer words been spoken than those contained in Sacred Scripture and interpreted through Sacred Tradition.

We must pray for protection from the wicked who strut about us.  Goodness, they are everywhere. And even though there are so many evil and lost, God still blesses them with offspring and so many wonderful material benefits.  But for how long?

For how long, indeed.

Next men’s prayer outside ‘The Men’s Club’ May 6 @ 8 pm April 22, 2015

I will be praying outside the sexually oriented business “The Men’s Club” on Wednesday, May 6 2015 at 8 pm.  I was told by a good number of men that they would have attended if they had more notice.  So…..here you go.  I will give weekly reminders until the event.

The details:  I will be praying outside  The Men’s Club, 2340 W. Northwest Hwy, Dallas, on April 8, Easter Wednesday, at 8 pm.  I will actually be across the street in the parking lot of the US Post Office.  This is directly across from the entrance to the inappropriately named “gentleman’s club.”  

The post office parking lot is well lit and set back some distance from the very busy roadway.  It is public land so we cannot be harassed for being there.  It’s really an ideal situation, we are basically impossible to miss by patrons leaving this SOB.  Men over 18 only.  All men are welcome.  You don’t have to be a member of a particular parish.

No protesting, just prayer.  No interaction with the patrons at this time.  That may come later.  We’ll see.

Hopefully turnout will steadily grow. I’m hoping SB will send out an e-mail to the local men’s group.

Deo Gratias!
