An idea for our bishops...

Yes, I know ole Q is always coming up with ideas for our bishops.

Well, here is another one, and made as usual with no apologies to anyone:

What if our bishops were to close as many abortion mills in their dioceses as they have traditional Catholic churches?

See a panoramic view of the interior of St. Vibiana Cathedral

For a video view of the interior of St. Vibiana as it is today, or at least post-sale, click on this post's title. Talk about "bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang!"

Good news -- kind of -- about St. Vibiana "ex"-Cathedral

For some kind-of good news, read the story (click on this post's title) in today's L.A. Times about yesterday's returning, after 11 years, of the cloud-white cupola of St. Vibiana Cathedral to its rightful place atop the bell tower of that beautiful Italianate "ex"-Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles.

You can even see a four-minute KTLA Channel 5 news video of the 20-foot, 3,500-pound cupola being lifted by crane back to its historic position.

This is only "kind-of" good news, because you notice right away that gone from the cupola is its cross. How symbolic that is of the effects of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles's attack on St. Vibiana back in 1996.

Secular preservationists were the ones to defend St. Vibiana and save her from the Archdiocese's relentless attempts to destroy her.

In 1996, the preservationists had to get a court to issue an emergency restraining order to make the Archdiocese stop its sudden, Saturday morning sneak demolition attempt. Such was its frenzy to obliterate St. Vibiana that the Archdiocese, says the Times, hadn't gotten a demolition permit.

This was a day after the city government had said the Archdiocese needed to "abate" danger that the earthquake-damaged bell tower supposedly posed.

Naturally, repairing the Cathedral would have abated any danger. Yes, that would have cost a lot. But the faithful would have dug deep to save St. Vibiana.

The Archdiocese claimed repairing St. Vibiana would have cost too much. Does that mean it would have cost $200 million (the Armadillo's cost)? Or maybe $773 million (the cost of the clergy sex abuse and cover-up scandals)?

By the time the court's restraining order was served, the Archdiocese had lifted the historic cupola off the tower and dumped it on its side in the parking lot. And, says a preservationist, "They were stripping the interior."

What is with so many members of our hierarchy all over the USA that they rush to demolish historic Catholic churches that are irreplaceable architectural gems filled with artistic treasures and spiritual and historical significance?

In Russia and elsewhere in the ex-Communist-ruled countries of the USSR and the Captive Nations, they are restoring and even re-creating and replicating cathedrals and churches that the Bolsheviks desecrated and destroyed.

America's Catholic hierarchy should follow the example of the church-restorers, not the church-destroyers. The Church needs to grow, not retreat. It can be done!

What would you do?

The latest L.A. Times news story (click on this post's title) about a case of sex crimes against children reminds me to ask a question. Here it is:

If you were a bishop and one of your priests came to you and admitted to molesting a child or children, or a teenager or teenagers, what would you do?

Now, I know some bishops claim, absurdly, that years ago they didn't know about sex crimes what they know now. So let's just say this admitting-to-molesting scenario happened, say, 30 years ago.

Wouldn't the normal reaction to hearing that from one of your priests be shock, followed by indignation and grief, followed by you lifting his facilities and telling him his priestly career is over, and followed by you telling him that because of his crimes against children you and he must go to the police?

I've never understood how a bishop could think that a man who has committed sex crimes against children or youth could be fit to stay in the priesthood.

Wouldn't you automatically -- automatically! -- think, "We made a big mistake in admitting this man to ordination and, before that, keeping him in the seminary. Either he never had a true vocation to the priesthood or he fell away from his vocation. In either case, he is not able or fit to continue."

The rest of your reaction, of course, would be to see to pastoral care of the victims and their families, and to see to spiritual care for the priest.

Isn't all this what you would do...automatically and right away?

Molestation stories in the L.A. Times

Have you seen the L.A. Times article (click on this post's title) today about an Orange County youth hockey coach pleading guilty to homosexually assaulting three boys, ages 11-13? Tomorrow he could get up to 18 years to life in prison.

Let's see the liberal news media blame this on celibacy. Somehow, I don't think the hockey center the coach worked for asked any of its employees to take vows of celibacy.

If you read the L.A. Times, you know that about twice or more every week they carry news stories about non-clergy -- usually government school employees -- being arrested, convicted or sentenced for committing sex crimes against children or teenagers.

Celibacy is not a contributing factor in any of those crimes.

Now, obviously, my pointing this out is NOT to minimize in any way the scope and the awfulness of the clergy molestation and cover-up scandals. It is just to say two things:

1. The news media and the public will not stop sex crimes against kids and youth by focusing, as they have, mainly on the Church. If they really want to protect kids, they need to concentrate on the government schools.

2. The news media and the public will not stop sex crimes against kids and youth by solely blaming priestly celibacy, as they often do.

Blessed Mother Teresa, pray for us!

It was only a matter of time before someone responded to recent news reports and gave a Catholic explanation for the spiritual dryness that Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta endured for so many years as she "served Jesus in distressing disguise."

Now Carl E. Olson, editor of the Ignatius Insight online newsletter, has given that good explanation (click on this post's title). Bravo, Carl!

Blessed Mother Teresa, pray for us!

Let's foster "The spirit of Summorum Pontificum"

As we know -- oh, do we know -- the liberal Catholics have been running wild for the last 45 years now, and citing "the spirit of Vatican II" for their forays into dissent and disobedience.

So ole Q proposes right now that it is time for the rest of us to run wild with forays into orthodoxy and obedience, and that we do so by citing the spirit of Summorum Pontificum always and everywhere.

Have you banded together with your friends and fellow parishioners yet and asked your pastor for celebration of the Latin Mass? When you do, you could tell him about the concept of the spirit of Summorum Pontificum.

Have you written a letter to the editor of The Tidings or other diocesan newspaper and defended the Holy Father's request for Latin Mass? When you do, you can say you are acting in the spirit of Summorum Pontificum, the spirit of obedience to that document, and it's time for every Catholic to.

What do you think -- shouldn't we cite the spirit of Summorum Pontificum to foster orthodoxy and obedience in our Church?

Sacramentum Caritatis (Feb.22, 2007) is a treasure for each of us

No one seems to be talking about it much, but we should be: Pope Benedict XVI's post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis (The Sacrament of Charity), issued February 22, 2007, is important.

The Holy Father's message (click on this post's title) is a treasure-trove of Catholic truth about the Eucharist, the Mass and the Christian life. We can read and re-read it, meditate on it, pray along with it and thank God for it.

And as long as we've been talking here about the Latin Mass, I'm going to quote an especially unsung section of Sacramentum Caritatis (I've quoted it here before, too) because it could radically change both American seminary education and parish pastoral practice:

"62. ...Speaking more generally, I ask that future priests, from their time in the seminary, receive the preparation needed to understand and to celebrate Mass in Latin, and also to use Latin texts and execute Gregorian chant; nor should we forget that the faithful can be taught to recite the more common prayers in Latin, and also to sing parts of the liturgy to Gregorian chant."

It's interesting that the Holy Father made this request before he issued Summorum Pontificum, isn't it?

We should each write the Ordinary of our archdioceses and dioceses, quoting this request from the Vicar of Christ and politely asking the Ordinary what he has done, is doing or will do soon to implement the Holy Father's desire.

What do you think about Pope Benedict's request? It is epochal but will be widely ignored. If only it came with an enforcement provision, because nowadays so many bishops pick and choose what they will deign to obey.

"The people" are (gasp!) facing away from each other!

The opponents of the Latin Mass claim, wrongly, that in the Latin Mass the celebrant "has his back to" and is "facing away from" the congregation.

Of course, they don't say, "congregation." They use a term that, as it happens, the collectivists and socialists also use, "the people."

But as we know, the priest is not "facing away from" the congregation or "having his back to" us. He is leading us in worship.

Let's use the logic of the opponents of the Mass of the Ages, though. If it is bad for the celebrant to "have his back to the people," let's look at "the people" themselves in the Novus Ordo Mass. Row after row in the pews, they (gasp!) all have their backs to each other! Shocking, but true.

It's going to take a Rubik's Cube expert to figure out how to position everyone in the congregation so no one has his back to anyone else.

Got any suggestions? (Hint: Don't ask a liberal.)

EWTN to telecast Latin High Mass live on Sept. 14

Everyone is invited to tune in! Mother Angelica's Eternal Word Television Network will broadcast its first-ever Latin Solemn High Mass live this September 14, a Friday, at 8 a.m. EST, from the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama.

From its branch in Denton, Nebraska, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter will provide the celebrant and a deacon, subdeacon, preacher, master of ceremonies and altar boys.

Father Calvin Goodwin, a professor at the FSSP's Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, says, "Most Catholics have not seen this heavenly celebration in over 40 years. We are very excited to help EWTN and to support the Holy Father’s call for a wider presence of this form of the Mass. This is a cause for great joy."

A media advisory by the FSSP adds this:

"Established in 1988 by Pope John Paul II, the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter is an international society of Catholic priests entrusted with the preservation and administration of the Catholic Church’s ancient Latin liturgical traditions. Over 120 seminarians are preparing for the priesthood in the Fraternity’s two seminaries in Bavaria, Germany and Denton, Nebraska."

No vocations shortage at Thomas Aquinas College!

Did you see the online California Catholic Daily article (click on this post's title) yesterday, Aug. 16, about all the vocations to the priesthood and the religious life among the alums of Thomas Aquinas College (shown above) in Santa Paula?

The article includes an interview with Fr. Sebastian Walshe, O. Praem., a Norbertine priest who is a graduate of Thomas Aquinas College.

"TAC" is doing things right, and when will the vocations directors in Los Angeles and all over the USA start copying them?

Do you know any TAC grads who are in, or pursuing, vocations to the priesthood or religious life? If you can spare a moment, please tell us about them!

Relocate the congregation to a side chapel

If, as the liberal Catholics say, Jesus is really and truly present in the congregation at Mass, and if, as the liberal Catholics also say, we need to put the really and truly present Jesus of the Blessed Sacrament off to the side and away from Mass...

...Then shouldn't we also put the whole congregation off to the side, too?

And should we put the Gospel in a side chapel too, for the same reason?

I'm just looking for a little consistency from the liberal Catholics, here.

Any comments?

Resources for the Latin Mass

The Latin Mass Society of England & Wales has many wonderful and indispensable resources for saying, following and assisting at the Latin Mass (click on this post's title).

We all owe it to ourselves -- and to our parishes and all our fellow Catholics -- to make these resources known widely and to get them ourselves.

Do you know of other sources and resources? Please tell us about them! Thank you in advance.

Sursum corda -- Lift up your hearts.
Habemus ad Dominum -- We have lifted them up to the Lord.

Architect Moyra Doorly comments on Cardinal Mahony's cathedral

The August issue of the Ignatius Insight e-bulletin (click on this post's title) has an interview by its editor, Carl E. Olson, with architect Moyra Doorly, author of the new book No Place For God: The Denial of the Transcendent in Modern Church Architecture (Ignatius Press, 2007).

Author Doorly says this, among other things, about Cardinal Mahony's cathedral:

"Why build a Catholic cathedral that has as one of its central aims not to be specifically Catholic? To aim for universal appeal is a Relativist impulse borne of the belief that all religious traditions are equally valid, that there's 'nothing special' about Catholicism and nothing special about God. In Los Angeles Cathedral it seems that only Man is special."

She said that after citing passages in a brochure about the cathedral.

What do you think about her assessment?

Accompanying the interview is a nice, worthwhile list of links to material about Catholic churches and their design.

By the way, editor Olson made a comment here recently; glad he checked in, and glad you have, too.

What Pope Benedict says about Vatican II

Thanks to the The Wanderer for pointing out in its current issue that Sandro Magister's July 27 www.chiesa edition (click on this post's title) reproduces a reply that Pope Benedict XVI gave to a priest on July 24 who asked him about Vatican II and its aftermath.

Among other things, the Holy Father said this about the aftermath of the Council in the late Sixties:

"One side was of the opinion that this cultural revolution was what the Council had wanted. It identified this new Marxist cultural revolution with the will of the Council. It said: This is the Council; in the letter the texts are still a bit antiquated, but behind the written words is this 'spirit,' this is the will of the Council, this is what we must do. "

The Supreme Pontiff is acknowledging that a phony "spirit of Vatican II" has existed and that
it has caused much trouble for the Faith.

So it is legitimate for the rest of us to echo the Pope in exposing and criticizing that phony "spirit of Vatican II."

The "social justice" phonies don't care that Saturdays are the last day of life for many babies such as this dear little girl or boy

As we know from their words and especially their inaction, almost no Catholic "social justice" phonies care one bit about the worst social injustice of our times, the cruel aborting of thousands of baby girls and boys every day, including hundreds in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

We should join our local pro-lifers at the abortion mills on Saturdays and whenever we can; and if ever for good reason we cannot be there, we should pray at those times for the babies and the pro-lifers, for the conversion of the parents and for the closing of the abortion mills.

The baby above, by the way, was just four months along. You can find this photo and those of other babies at the web site of Priests for Life (click on this post's title). The site also has photos of aborted babies on a separate page.

Ah, yes, the social justice phonies prate about "love" and "justice"; they congratulate themselves on being "loving"; but they castigate and lie about pro-lifers who save babies, and on their road to Jericho every day they step right over the torn and bloody bodies of the aborted babies.

Let's also pray for the conversion of the "social justice" phonies who ignore and sometimes even favor and justify the crying injustice of cruelly aborting millions of baby girls and boys.

The equation has become, "Social justice = Dead babies."

Let me think a minute. Which political party is it that 100% supports aborting babies? Oh, yes -- it must be the democrats.

So how many Catholic "social justice" types do you know who do NOT vote for the party of mass baby-killing, the democrats? How many Catholic bishops and priests do you know who do NOT vote for the mass baby-killing party, the democrats?

Today, every Saturday and every day, let's you and I do something to save babies, and let's pray for the babies, for all pro-lifers and for restoration of the right to life -- true social justice.

The news media are disrespecting the priesthood again

Twice in the past week, once in USA Today and once in the L.A. Times, I have seen a bizarre new usage that is disrespectful to our Catholic priests and our Catholic priesthood.

Instead of saying, "Father John Doe," they say, "priest John Doe."

That is a very anti-Catholic and anti-clerical usage and tone. They had to go out of their way to think that up and write it.

Nobody talks that way in real life. They say, "Father John Doe," never "priest John Doe."

Actually, some people do write that way and have written that way: Evil, avowed enemies of the Church such as dictators, fascists, nazis, communists, anarchists, etc.

Little-noticed things like this are harbingers of persecution. What do you think?

O Mary, Queen of the Clergy and Mother of the Church, pray for us and our beloved priests!

Fathers Kenneth Baker and Kenneth Myers on the Latin Mass

In the March 2007 issue of the Homiletic & Pastoral Review, Father Kenneth Baker, S.J., the editor of that great Catholic journal, has an insightful editorial (click on this post's title) about the Latin Mass. He writes:

"One aspect of the prayers of the traditional Latin Mass that impresses me is the number of references to sin, forgiveness, damnation and salvation. The traditional liturgy is very much aware of the weakness of human nature, man’s proneness to sin, and the fact that we all, with the exception of Jesus and his Mother, are sinners...

"The prayers before communion express several times the need for forgiveness and for the grace to save us from eternal damnation. Here we see that the traditional Mass takes the real possibility of our falling into mortal sin and going to hell for all eternity very seriously...

"The point is that the traditional liturgy is very aware of man’s sinfulness and begs over and over again for forgiveness and perseverance in the grace of God. The Latin Mass is permeated with the sense of the sacred. Those who attend it and know what is going on, love it and want to attend it as often as they can. In pointing out man’s sins and need for forgiveness the old Mass strikes home. Many people relate to it. That, I think, is one reason why it is coming back and attracting both young and old to worship God as the saints and our predecessors have for over 1500 years."

Father Baker's editorial is a commentary on a substantial, must-read article in that same March 2007 issue, "A New Look at the Old Mass," by Father Kenneth E. Myers, chaplain of the Pittsburgh Latin Mass Community. See the link to it at

Wish everyone in our Archdiocese, clergy and lay, would read Fr. Baker's editorial and Fr. Myers' article. Bring on Sept. 14th!

But with the Tridentine Mass, how can we have clown Masses anymore?

Do you think a big reason the liberals hate the Tridentine Mass and hate the Catholics who love it is that they know they can't turn it into a clown Mass like the one above (from the Fish Eaters Website)?

And how will tutued liturgical dancers fit in at a Tridentine Mass?

And how can you celebrate a Tridentine Mass under a "gay pride" banner?

Wouldn't the pastoral thing be to offer the Tridentine Mass?

Catholic writer Brian Mershon makes a great "Now, why didn't I think of that?" point in a lengthy article of his (click on this post's title) at

He writes that for pastors who worry about Catholics attending SSPX Masses, the pastoral thing to do would be to offer parish Tridentine Mass so the people will stay home in their parishes.

Here is the relevant passage:

"As such, the question needs to be raised: what does the Church officially teach about Catholics who attend SSPX chapels out of spiritual necessity with no desire whatsoever to separate themselves from full communion? In Fr. Newman's July 8, 2007 sermon at St. Mary's, he reportedly repeated that the SSPX is in schism, directly counter to what the Church teaches, as Cardinal Castrillón has repeatedly said in numerous public interviews.

"The immediate question that comes to mind to a faithful Catholic is that if this is truly happening — Catholics being led out of 'full communion,' or in the traditional ecclesiology, 'out of the Church' — then wouldn't it be an act of pastoral solicitude on the part of Fr. Newman to offer his parishioners a 'wide and generous application' of the Traditional Roman rite on a regular basis in order to keep his flock in 'full communion' as Pope John Paul II requested 19 years ago [in his Ecclesia Dei]?"

Pretty obvious, when you think about it.

Reverend pastors in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, you now have a fine way to keep your parishioners from going SSPX: Starting Sept. 14, give them the Mass previously denied them. What say you?

Happy Feast of the Transfiguration

Happy Feast of the Transfiguration! The photo above is from

The old Catholic Encyclopedia -- courtesy of -- says this:

"In 1456 Callixtus III extended the feast to the Universal Church in memory of the victory gained by Hunyady at Belgrade over the Turks, 6 August, 1456. Callixtus himself composed the Office."

Jesus, mercy! Mary, help! Amen.

What one parish is doing for the Tridentine Mass -- and how about yours?

Nice to see how much some parishes are doing for the Tridentine Mass.

St. Josaphat Catholic Church (click on this post's title) in Detroit has been celebrating the Tridentine Mass for some time. Now they are holding an Introduction to Latin class, inviting new people to join their choir, and seeking altar boys and even ushers for the ever-new "old" Mass.

What is your parish doing -- here in Los Angeles or elsewhere?

What one pastor is doing for the Tridentine Mass

A young pro-life friend who took a job in another state has written me this:

"Thought you might find this interesting... Our pastor announced this weekend that he will offer the traditional Latin Mass (aka the"extraordinary form" of the Roman Rite) at our parish... on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Sept. 14th), which is also the date that the Holy Father's motu proprio officially goes into effect.

"If enough parishioners are interested, he will offer this Mass regularly, although as far as I know, our ordinary Sunday Mass schedule (Novus Ordo) will not change. Our pastor (who has never offered Mass this way before) is preparing to celebrate it for the first time, our own altar boys are being trained to serve at the altar, and our Gregorian choir is preparing for it as well.

"Also, our parish is offering a set of workshops to acquaint parishioners with this form of the Mass. Interesting times!..."

St. John Vianney, pray for our priests and for us!

Happy Feast of St. John Vianney, the Cure d'Ars, the patron saint of parish priests. Let us pray extra for our parish priests and all priests today and every day, and do something nice for them very often.

As we know, there can be quite a bit of solitude in priests' lives, so we should be sure to keep in contact with them.

To see a panoply of prayers for priests and seminarians, and for vocations, visit the web site of the Cure d'Ars Prayer Group (click on this post's title) in the Diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina. The illustration above and the three quotes below -- all from the Cure -- are from that site.

"Oh, how great is a priest! The priest will not understand the greatness of his office till he is in Heaven. If he understood it on earth, he would die, not of fear, but of love."

"The other benefits of God would be of no avail to us without the priest."

"What would be the use of a house full of gold, if you had nobody to open you the door! The priest has the key of the heavenly treasures; it is he who opens the door; he is the steward of the good God, the distributor of His wealth."

Here is the link to the web site of the Sanctuaire d'Ars:

Catholics will tell Knights: Live up to Catholic and K of C ideals

Do you think Father Michael McGivney (pictured above), who founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 and whose cause for canonization is underway, would harbor pro-abortion, pro-homosexual politicians in the Order he loved?

We all know that he would not. So why do today's Knights of Columbus harbor some pro-aborts?

Yes, a number of K of C councils around the USA have notorious pro-abortion politicians as members, and their state officials and the Supreme headquarters refuse to kick them out.

Naturally, this casts a pall over the hundreds of thousands of good Knights of Columbus and over all the prayers they offer, donations they make and charitable service they provide.

So if you are going to be in Nashville next Tuesday-Thursday, August 7-9 , please join with our Southern California-based Concerned Roman Catholics of America in picketing the Knights' 2007 international convention. Or tell your friends and relatives in Nashville to help out.

The Christian Newswire today (August 2) ran a press release from CRCOA that announces the picketing. Our friend Kenneth M. Fisher, founder and chairman of CRCOA, said:

"We call upon the Knights, especially Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, to practice the Catholic principles they brag about upholding and kick out all the pro-'gay,' pro-abortion politicians they've welcomed into their ranks.

"It's long past time for the Knights to end the scandal of embracing pro-homosexual, pro- abortion politicians who trample on the Catholic moral teachings the organization says it stands for.

"Especially, the Knights should give the boot to the 16 Massachusetts state lawmakers--all Knights in good standing--whose votes recently killed a ballot measure that would've enshrined man-woman marriage in the law and banned homosexual so- called 'marriage.' These politicians overrode 170,000 citizens who petitioned to put traditional marriage on the ballot. What's more, seven of these 'Knights' have 'pro-choice' ratings from Planned Parenthood, which runs America's biggest chain of abortion centers."

Ken added:

"CRCOA defends orthodox Catholic teachings and works to expose and end false teachings, corruption and scandals. That's why we ask the Knights to clean house and restore their good name. How can they call themselves 'the strong right arm of the Church' when they harbor pro-homosexual, pro-abortion politicians--enemies of the Church--as members?...Anderson has been in charge for more than six years now. He should do his duty before God and expel the pro-'gay,' pro-abortion politicians--or head for the door himself."

This year, the Knights will meet at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville. Ken said CRCOA will picket from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on August 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on August 8, and from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on August 9.

Please come help Ken and friends. As you know, every pro-life picket always needs every hand it can get. For more info, call Ken at: Tel: 714-491-2284, Cell: 714-260-3821

Some long division for our Archdiocese

Cardinal Mahony has arranged $773 million in settlements.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has 290 parishes.

290 into $773 million = $2,665,517.24.

$2.665 million per parish could have funded a pro-life pregnancy counseling center or home for unwed moms in every parish.

That tens of thousands of preborn babies are aborted in our Archdiocese every year PROVES that we do need, and desperately, a pro-life center or maternity home in EVERY parish.

Just thinking out loud.
