Novus Ordo parish priest has strong words about Pope Francis' new rules for those who pray the traditional Latin Mass.

Maybe this is what the Costa Rican bishops call the "springtime" of their church?

Faithful priests are in tears, unable to preach. Will those who inflict this pain persist, tormenting faithful Catholics who simply want to pray the Mass of our forefathers?

Today's timely first reading (in part, Jer 23:1-3):

Woe to the shepherds who mislead and scatter the flock of my pasture, says the LORD.

Therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, against the shepherds who shepherd my people: You have scattered my sheep and driven them away. You have not cared for them, but I will take care to punish your evil deeds.

I myself will gather the remnant of my flock from all the lands to which I have driven them and bring them back to their meadow; there they shall increase and multiply.

Pope Benedict XVI on the Traditional Latin Mass. He was, of course, 100% correct:

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful."

This is a great android programme you can use instead of the official YouTube one.

It is better than the YouTube ‘app’ in every way:

no adverts
can download videos and audio
costs nothing

(Mt 10:16-23)
"Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves.

But beware of people, for they will hand you over to courts and scourge you in their synagogues, and you will be led before governors and kings for my sake as a witness before them and the pagans.

When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say. You will be given at that moment what you are to say. For it will not be you who speak but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

Brother will hand over brother to death, and the father his child; children will rise up against parents and have them put to death.

You will be hated by all because of my name, but whoever endures to the end will be saved.

When they persecute you in one town, flee to another. Amen, I say to you, you will not finish the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes."

Demolition Derby in rural PA on Saturday night. Compare the physique of the Mennonite guys walking in front with the rest of the crowd.

Late modernity is corrosive to mind, body and spirit. Fight it (like the Mennonites do).

Praying for Pope Francis today. He is in for surgery.

Is there was #smartphone out there that could #dualboot #Android and/or #Linux ? I'll be in the market for a new phone soon and curious if there is such a thing. Maybe a #pinephone or #librem5 ?
