False Right, Hybrid Mass & Rome’s Drought
New Cardinals Show Their True Colors
Christe Rex Noster: Adveniat Regnum Tuum!
My dear and Reverend Fathers,
Back in 2011 NewCardinal Raymond Burke said:
“It seems to me that is what he [Benedict-Ratzinger] has in mind is that this mutual enrichment would seem to naturally produce a new form of the Roman rite – the 'reform of the reform,' if we may – all of which I would welcome and look forward to its advent.”
"Mutual enrichment" means, of course, the synthesis of the two Missals, the Catholic one with the New-Order one. This goes back to the whole
Reform of the Reform
"movement" that we have all heard of for years. Well the Guinean NewCardinal Robert Sarah, writing in the French Journal La Nef for the 10th anniversary of
goes even further by stating:
It is a priority
, [emphasis mine] with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can examine through prayer and study, how
to return to a common reformed rite
always with this goal of a reconciliation inside the Church.”
It is men like these that go around the globe giving talks to pseudo traditionalists and sspx'ers with that baited hook of "recognition" in their scarlet finery, lace and missal mitres; all dressed up like pied pipers leading Catholic souls right into the snare of the NewChurch and its NewReligion... No, thanks.
They have exposed their true agenda, an "integrated" NewChurch with an "integrated" (read here
) Missal and
: NOT the Catholic Religion - NOT the Catholic Mass!
As always, be assured of my paternal benediction and prayers, especially at Holy Mass. I remain,
In Christo Rege,
The Most Reverend Monsignor +Thomas JF Sebastian, SSCR
A Well Deserved Drought
Rome now is suffering a severe drought. To this, it should be added that for more than one year the region of Rome – the Lazio – has been suffering strong earthquakes, which have shaken several churches, making Romans run to the streets in panic and close the schools. Those quakes have caused cracks in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, an important site for inter-faith celebrations.
Further, the cupola of St. Peter's Basilica was struck by lightning twice: once on the day Benedict XVI announced his resignation of the Papacy, and the second time on the eve of Francis’ trip to Sweden, where he inaugurated the commemorations to celebrate the anniversary of Luther's revolt against the Papacy and the Catholic Church.
Anyone who links the dots sees that these things are not happening by chance.
If we consider that the Third Secret of Fatima you published (
) spoke of the destruction of Rome caused by its apostasy, we have the full picture.
WAKE UP, Rome!
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done!
P.S. - Please check the two news reports below.
Lack of rain has Italians worried
Walk along the cobbled streets of Rome and you’re sure to find a fountain which supplies fresh drinking water to Romans and tourists alike. These fountains don’t have taps to stem the flow and now risk being turned off as searing heat and a lack of rain dry up vital water sources.
Meteorologists say that Italy had one of its driest springs in 60 years and rainfalls in some parts of the country have been 80 per cent below normal. Rome had just 26 days of rain in the first six months of this year.
It’s a disaster for agriculture in the country which has so far suffered 2 billion euro worth of damage. And if that weren’t enough, Italy is also grappling with a series of forest fires which also need gallons of water in order to be brought under control.
The lack of water in Rome and beyond has lawmakers extremely worried. The governor of the Lazio region, Nicola Zingaretti, which includes the Eternal City, spoke of the seriousness of the situation.
He said he has ordered no more water to be drawn from Lake Bracciano, which supplies some parts of the Italian capital, because the decreasing water levels pose a clear and present danger to the lakes’ aquatic life.
As the soaring temperatures continue and the country prays for rain, Romans could well see water rationing as early as this week.
Vatican shuts down fountains as Rome deals with drought
Junno Arocho Esteves - Catholic News Service
Vatican City – While Rome reels from one of its worst droughts in decades, the Vatican is doing its part to conserve water by shutting down the city-state's 100 fountains.
The office governing Vatican City State announced July 25 that the drought has "led the Holy See to take measures aimed at saving water" by shutting down fountains in St. Peter's Square, throughout the Vatican Gardens and in the territory of the State.
"The decision is in line with the teachings of Pope Francis, who reminds us in his encyclical
how 'the habit of wasting and discarding' has reached 'unprecedented levels' while 'fresh drinking water is an issue of primary importance, since it is indispensable for human life and for supporting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems,'" the office said.
The prolonged drought has forced officials from the Lazio region of Italy to halt pumping water from Lake Bracciano, located roughly 19 miles north of Rome. Less than usual rainfalls in the past two years have steadily depleted the lake, which provides 8 percent of the city's water supply.
In an interview with Italian news outlet Tgcom24, Nicola Zingaretti, the region's president, said the lake's water level has "fallen too much and we risk an environmental disaster." While the drought already forced Rome city officials to shut down some of Rome's public drinking fountains in June, it may lead to strict water rationing for the city's estimated 1.5 million residents.
City officials may also take the Vatican's lead and shut down water pouring down from Rome's many ancient fountains.
Pilgrims and visitors alike have marveled at the majestic fountains of St. Peter's Square that have cascaded water for centuries since their construction in the 17th century. While the source of water was once provided from an ancient Roman aqueduct, the two fountains, as well as 10 % of Vatican City State's 100 fountains "re-circulate water currently," Greg Burke, Vatican spokesman, told
Catholic News Service
in a July 25 email.
Others, he added, "will eventually be transformed in order to recirculate" the same water rather than let it be wasted by running into the drainage or sewer system.
Burke told CNS that the Vatican's move to switch off the fountains located within its territory is "a way to show a good example" in conserving water as the city deals with the crisis.
"We're not going to be able to solve Rome's water problem this summer, but we can do our part," Burke said. "This is the Vatican putting 'Laudato Si'' into action. Let's not waste water."
