In this Sunday Sermon from South Saint Paul, Father explains the importance of the Easter Octave, with special emphasis on the Gospel reading about the first bishops to either betray Jesus Christ (Judas) or doubt His Resurrection (Thomas).
Two thousand years later, the Church is filled with the successors of Bishops Judas and Thomas, men who have betrayed the Mystical Body of Christ to such an extent that apostasy is the only word to describe what is happening all around us.
“Do you want Total War?”
This was the question that Joseph Goebbels asked to a select audience of Nazi Party stalwarts during his perhaps most famous speech at the Berlin Sports Palace on February 18th, 1943. Accompanied by measures fully mobilizing the German people for conflict for the first time since the outbreak of hostilities in 1939, it was seen as a defiant response to Franklin Roosevelt’s announcement of the United Nations Alliance call for “Unconditional Surrender” of the Axis Powers at a meeting in Casablanca just a few weeks earlier.

During this Octave of the great feast of Easter, I’m pleased to present a reflection on the Resurrection of Christ as presented by the OG Parking Lot Priest in Easter Sunday 2021.
Vatican II’s Lumen Gentium dedicated several paragraphs to the topic of the “Universal Call to Holiness in the Church,” concluding with the following:
“Therefore, all the faithful of Christ are invited to strive for the holiness and perfection of their own proper state. Indeed they have an obligation to so strive. Let all then have care that they guide aright their own deepest sentiments of soul. Let neither the use of the things of this world nor attachment to riches, which is against the spirit of evangelical poverty, hinder them in their quest for perfect love. Let them heed the admonition of the Apostle to those who use this world; let them not come to terms with this world; for this world, as we see it, is passing away.”
Your Excellency, through your repeated interventions and the activity of various blogs we are denouncing in every way the apostasy that is spreading in the Church just like the tyranny imposed by the ideology of the New World Order, to which the Hierarchy of the Church seems to be in total submission.

And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani? My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Mark 16:33)
The whole earth was shaking. What a frightening moment that must have been, perhaps not altogether unlike ours today. The earth is shaking again, and Man would put God to death once more.
This is your hour; it is the reign of darkness.
The texts of the liturgy of the Sacred Triduum strike us, like the lash of a whip, for the crude brutality of the torments to which the Lord was subjected by the will of the Sanhedrin, at the order of the Roman procurator. The crowd, instigated by the high priests, invokes the innocent blood of the Son of God upon themselves and their children, denying in the space of just a few days the triumph which had been attributed to Him at His entrance into Jerusalem. The praises and cries of Hosanna turn into shouts of Crucify him, and the palm branches become whips and clubs. How much crowds can disappoint: they are capable of giving honor with the same conviction with which shortly afterwards they decree the death sentence.
After Vatican II, a good and holy priest who’d refused to offer the New Mass (and was thrown out of his own church for it) predicted that the day was coming when the faithful remnant would be sustained by recourse to Our Lady. At the time, he said: “Should they take away the Mass completely, you will always have recourse to the Rosary and the Scapular, so learn to use these lifelines right now, before the darkness descends over the earth.”
EXIVIT DE TEMPLO
Jesus autem abscondit se, et exivit de templo.
Jesus however hid himself, and went out of the temple.
Jn 8: 59
On March 12, by means of an ordinance issued without signature, protocol number or addressee, the First Section of the Secretary of State forbade the celebration of private Masses in Saint Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, beginning on the First Sunday of Passiontide. In the following days, Cardinals Raymond L. Burke, Gerhard L. Müller, Walter Brandmüller, Robert Sarah and Joseph Zen expressed their justified bewilderment at this decision, which due to the irregular form in which it was drawn up leaves one to conclude that is an explicit order of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

How far are you willing to let them go with their war against God and Country?
From the Editor’s Desk, Michael J. Matt asks tough questions:
• Why does the Old Normal show no signs of returning, even though the vaccines are finally here?
• Wasn’t the point of masks and social distancing to flatten the curve and slow the spread until the vaccines were ready?
