  • If only he were pope. Ecumenism, table altar, CITH, novelty, narcissism, all addressed in a firm manner.

    Quote
    (kreuz.net, Vatikan) At the end of June Malcom Cardinal Ranjith of Colombo in Sri Lanka condemns the celebration of the Mass on the supper table facing the pews.

    The Cardinal spoke in the framework of a conference, which took place in Rome from 20th to the 24th of June in Rome, organized by the "Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist".

    The Priest as a Boring Entertainer

    The Cardinal stressed that the Priest at the supper table is forced in the role of an entertainer.

    The Second Vatican Council never talked about a Calvin Box: "The people's altar is not suitable for the fear inducing Mystery of the Holy Eucharist" -- admonished the Cardinal.

    He received enormous applause for stating this truism.

    The Cardinal stated that the active participation in the Mass is not an external activity rather the significance interior worship.


    How does one reform a Diocese?

    At dinner during the Conference Cardinal Ranjith described, according to the US Traditionalist Website 'rorate-caeli.blogspot.com' that he had abolished Communion in the Hand in his Diocese.

    At the same time he restored communion rails in every church as well.

    His priests may only use certain parameters in their celebration of Holy Mass.

    Finally he has forbidden all of the priest, to hold syncretic Liturgies, in which elements of other religions are introduced into the Liturgy.

    He may not be full blown trad, but he's certainly orthodox.

    He has been known for his orthodoxy for a long time and it did not stop him from being made a Cardinal.  It seems likely the Vatican approves.

  • Now watch his diocese boom with the Faith, vocations, etc. like the Diocese of Campos did after Vatican II because Bishop Castro Mayer refused to make the changes. The Diocese of Lincoln is also booming because of Bishop Bruskewitz's conservative stance toward liberal ideas such as not allowing girls to be altar servers.
