Worse Than a Black Mass?

Wednesday, September 24, AD 2014

For those who kneel beside us
At altars not Thine own,
Who lack the lights that guide us,
Lord, let their faith atone!

Rudyard Kipling, Hymn Before Action

 

Father Paul Nicholson engages in some silliness on stilts:

 

The imagery that is being circulated of the confrontation with the diabolical at the black mass in Oklahoma city is truly moving. But there is something worse than a black mass. It is the abuse of God’s Mercy.

I have seen the images of the Society of +Marcel Lefevbre in a full demonstration against the black mass that took place on September 21, 2014. They look every bit Catholic … yet they are not submissive to the Vicar of Christ. They are Catholic protestants.
And while they decry the attack on Christ in the black mass, do they not realize that they are compounding the wound in the Heart of Christ, by attacking the Body of Christ? How can any Catholic not feel indignant as he sees this tragedy in front of him.

  • Fr. Nicholson. Another Company man…..on stilts wearing a clown mask.

    I have participated in public pray crusades in front of theaters and P.P..
    One of the inspiring facets of these rallies is the ecumenical gathering.
    While we prayed the Holy Rosary the protestants never balked. They remained committed to the cause at hand. To make reparations for the blasphemy being thrown at Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    At one rally, in Madison WI., the total of protestant faithful out numbered the Catholics by 5 to 1.

    The battlegrounds are growing.

    The Church Militant is not a cowardly militia, rather a force that can never be defeated. This confidence should be evident in the public square. Unfortunately it isn’t.

  • So how can an abuse of God’s mercy be worse that a black mass? From Fr. Nicholson’s article: “By resisting the call of grace to be converted and return to the Church, to remain intransigent, and stubborn to the workings of grace, the Society of +Marcel attack the Mercy of God!”

    But doesn’t the Satanist “resist the call of grace to be converted, to remain intransigent, and stubborn to the workings of grace, and so attacks the Mercy of God” in a particularly virulent manner? Aside from the issue of proportionality between a traditionalist schismatic Catholic and a Satanist, this looks like circular logic.

    Even worse, it goes against the Gospel – see Mark 9:40. “But Jesus said, “Do not hinder him, for there is no one who will perform a miracle in My name, and be able soon afterward to speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is for us. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because of your name as followers of Christ, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.”

    I note that most of Fr. Nicholson’s faithful readers are taking him to task on this topic in his comments section.

  • Donald,

    You are more than generous and merciful in calling this ‘silliness’. We can/should expect far more ‘well-reasoned’ and ‘moderate’ blogs or posts from Catholic priests. Priests are ‘ministers of reconciliation and communion’. This does not mean they cannot or should not give ‘the hard saying’, ‘the prophetic critique’ when it is needed and called for, but as ‘ministers of reconciliation and communion’ they are called to ‘speak the truth with love’-little of which that I see in this segment of his rant. He is called to seek the ‘communion of the Church centered in the Eucharist’ at all times. His ‘garbage’ in the above statement falls far from that.

    What is more amazing, is he writes this precisely when two different moments and events in the Church are going on. First, the Church in America is facing a new challenge from-Satanists (no matter how soft they pedal their product). We saw it in Boston and now in Kansas. This is not a phenomenon that is going away.

    The second, moment and event is the resuming (hopefully) of talks between Bishop Fellay, the Society of Pius X and Cardinal Mueller and the Congregation for the Faith. The fact that they met and are talking is a good sign, if not all that we desire etc.

    To liken brothers and sisters in Christ, even if they are not in complete and total communion with the Church [this could apply to other groupings which call themselves Catholic, never mind the various Orthodox and Protestant bodies. All who are baptized are brothers and sisters in the Lord, but in varying degrees do not share in full communion] with Satanists is not simply beyond the pale. It is absolutely contradictory to the Second Vatican Council which I presume father, believes he is protecting.

    Enough of the emotional thinking, the emotional vomit, father.

  • I applaud them for standing up for their beliefs. I was there and saw only a great group of Christians protesting against evil. Several Evangelicals were present as well Are we going to condemn them as well?
    Is time to stop the name calling and unite in the fight and abandon the timidity and conciliatory policies espoused by the Hierarchy,time to speak from the pulpit and denounce the threats to our religion.
    “THE CATHOLICS OF TODAY ARE NO LONGER MARTYRS THEY ARE WARRIORS AND AS SUCH SHOULD FIGHT THE FORCES OF LUCIFER THAT MEAN TO DESTROY OUR FAITH”

  • Father Paul Nicholson is in error. The Society of Saint Pius X is NOT in schism. This is from Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos. Father Paul Nicholson no longer accepts comments on his blog about this post. I wonder why?

    The SSPX is in an “irregular status”. They don’t like Vatican II – at all. Well, I don’t like some of it, either (Muslims worship the same God? Really?)

    The SSPX claims that the Novus Ordo Mass is invalid. I disagree with the SSPX. This does not make them heretical or schismatic. Protestants are heretics (even though I have know Protestants who are wonderful Christians). Orthodox are in schism (even though my Orthodox neighbors are wonderful Christians).

    As for obedience to the Pope – I recall St. Catherine of Siena’s letter to the Pope of her time.

Is America Satanophobic?

Monday, February 14, AD 2011

Oh, I don’t know Mr. Klavan.  While vehemently opposed to Satan and all his works, not to mention his empty promises, I don’t know if I fear Satanists.  Now if Satanists in various parts of the globe began to engage in suicide bombings,  used mentally handicapped individuals and kids in their suicide bombings, started stoning women,  undertook strenuous efforts to obtain nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, took over countries and proclaimed them Satanist States, beheaded captives and made snuff videos celebrating the murders, murdered 3000 of my countrymen and regularly called down the wrath of Satan on my nation and anyone who is non-Satanist, I guess a small particle of fear might creep in, along with a large amount of rage, at least in regard to those particular Satanists.  Fortunately the Satanists are merely a small band of kooks, and my main emotion to them is pity.  Thank God we are not faced with the type of moral quandries presented if a significant fraction of a global Satanist religion decided to launch a unholy war against unbelievers.  We can all relax now!

  • First and foremost, God Bless America!!!

    At this moment, there are tens of millions of satanists who just want to righteously impose (funded with oil $$$, Soros’ lucre, etc.) their sordid way of life on YOU . . .

    Millions other satanists are actively plotting to murder YOU. At least, YOU may think about how YOU can protect YOURSELF and avoid the disgrace of a piece of human detritis slaughtering YOU like a lamb.

    Instapundit has a report that US port security agents have captured dirty bomb materials. Wonder why we haven’t been informed?

  • I dunno Don. You say they’re a small band of kooks, but back in the 60s many big name rock stars and actors were partying with well-known Satanists and occultists – they have had a massive influence on our culture, including much of the “New Age” movement.

    You can’t dismiss this stuff with a wink and a shrug. Satanic ideas are so entrenched in popular entertainment that we take them for granted now. All of the cutesy little rock bands of the 60s that look so innocent compared to Lady Gaga or these gangster rappers, such as the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, even the Beatles, were in fact spreading a Satanic message far and wide – total rejection of authority, of order, of any semblance of traditional morality, hatred of God, religion and Christianity, and so on and so forth. What we see today is just a more direct version of it, and it only exists because those earlier acts wore down people’s defenses with their superficial charm.

  • Oh, I think Don’s having a not too subtle dig at our islamist friends.
