Covid Deaths & Eastern Rites



We Will Have All that We Missed


TIA (from Facebook),

Re: Golden Nights

Beautiful.

We in America have never known a catholic culture. Sad. But, we will have all that we missed and more if we remain faithful to the end.

Paganized Christmas


TIA (from Facebook),

Re: Golden Nights

Every year, it just seems that Christmas is becoming more paganized and secular. It's very hard to celebrate this Holy Feast among non-Catholics.

Who want to keep Christ out of CHRISTmas and substitute him for secular representations? Including Santa Claus and silly jingles?!

Reason for the Chinese Troops


Dear TIA,

I appreciated Frank Rega's comment re "China Troops in Canada" [12-15-2020] but I wonder if it occurred to him that any Chinese troops in Canada/Mexico may, in fact, be there at the behest of TPTB in order to be used in the USA if needed?

After the last four years, absolutely nothing should surprise us.

Covid Did Not Increase Number of Deaths


TIA,

Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19, per Johns Hopkins Applied Economics specialist.

Since the crude number of total deaths by all causes before and after COVID-19 has stayed the same, one can hardly say, in Briand's view, that COVID-19 deaths are concerning.

"All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary," Briand concluded.

     E.K.,M.D.

Eastern Rites


Dear Tradition in Action,

I've noticed a lot of Eastern Catholics, such as Mr. J.B., seem to become very upset when someone makes a mistake regarding the Eastern Rites. Some Easterners also often seem upset about the Church being called Roman (as Pius XII stated). Others also fears and lament the "Latinization" of their Rites.

I understand wanting to keep your regional identity and the diversity of organic rites and liturgies. This surely is good so long as the rite submits to Rome. But the spiteful and prideful attitude of some Easterners, who seem to look down upon the "Roman" Church, does not seem organic to me.

The Church is built upon Rome and the Pope, and the Eastern Rites are a small minority which still must submit to Rome even though they may keep their unique identity.

"If we would define and describe this true Church of Jesus Christ - which is the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church - we shall find nothing more noble, more sublime, or more divine than the expression 'the Mystical Body of Christ' - an expression which springs from and is, as it were, the fair flowering of the repeated teaching of the Sacred Scriptures and the Holy Fathers." - Pope Pius XII (Mystici Corporis Christi, 1943)

     God bless and Mary keep you,

     I.C.

TIA responds:

Dear I.C.,

Thank you for your message and your observations. We are on the same page regarding the centrality of the Roman character of the Catholic Church.

Regarding your remarks about the Eastern Catholic Rites, there are a few nuances to be added:
  • These Catholic Rites already admit in principle the primacy of Rome and the Pope. This is why in different epochs each of them abandoned their previous schismatic or heretical position and adhered to the Catholic Church.

  • Although in principle each takes this good position, sometimes in practice we notice what you observed, not only in the posting you mentioned but in the day-to-day life of some Eastern Catholics. That is, some of them side with the schismatics and heretics whom they left to criticize Rome, the Roman character of the Church, Latin in the Liturgy and the Pope. It is a bad habit they should correct.

  • Today, these important disputes are somehow eclipsed by the enormous crisis that afflicts the Catholic Church including the Papacy and the Holy See. We ourselves are obliged in conscience to take a position of Resistance toward many progressivist teachings coming from Rome in order to protect the Catholic Faith against Roman Prelates who want to destroy it.
So, in these difficult times and until Progressivism is expelled from the Church, we have to distinguish which spirit the criticisms against Rome are made.

With these nuances added, we entirely agree with you.

     Cordially,

Resisting Draconian Covid Measures


Dear TIA (from Facebook),

Re: Corona Tyranny

Thank you so much for being a lighthouse of sanity and reason in this plandemic and for your stellar role in rebuilding a truly Catholic civilization and leading souls to Christ and His spotless bride, the Catholic Church. It is through you I came into contact with stalwarts like Drs. Scott Atlas, John Ioannidis, David Katz, Dan Erickson, Joseph Mercola and Knut Witkowski.

I wish to share my experience of covid for the benefit of your readers. So here it goes:

In the last week of September, there was heavy rain in Bombay, India, coupled with incredibly low temperatures. My mom and I got a cold and slight feverish feeling, which vanished within a day or two, thanks to our chicken diet. I used to go out to buy groceries, never wore a mask and no one at home got infected. My dad went out in the pouring rain, came home drenched and forgot to wipe himself dry. Now dad is 68, Mum is 63 and I am 35 years old.

Dad has a mainly vegetarian diet. He developed fever, a racking cough, general weakness and was diagnosed covid +ve whereas Mum and me also got a positive result (false) despite being in the pink of health. Dad habitually wears a mask when he would go out shopping.

Could prolonged mask wearing have lowered Dad's resistance? Could he have contracted pneumonia? The doctors on our Indian news channels are nothing but clones of Anthony Fauci - they too trumpet masks-lockdowns-social distancing. Strangely enough I don't see epidemiologists/infectious disease specialists, but general doctors, physicians on our TV shows (just like CNN and the leftist liberalist lame stream media).

Are the media afraid that the epidemiologists/infectious disease specialists will reveal another side to the plandemic that is being intentionally obscured - the truth that will empower people to resist these draconian edicts?

     S.M., India
