  • It seems whenever there is some small modicum of light in the Post-Conciliar darkness, the Post-Conciliar Popes immediately declare a new Springtime! It is like pointing out the fine filet mignon being served in the dining room as the Titanic is sinking.

    Pope Benedict XVI: The Church is enjoying a "Eucharistic Springtime"!

    In his address (on St. Juliana of Cornillon) at yesterday's General Audience, Pope Benedict XVI made the following affirmation:

    I would like to affirm with joy that today in the Church there is a "Eucharistic springtime": How many persons pause silently before the Tabernacle to spend time in a conversation of love with Jesus! It is consoling to know that not a few groups of young people have rediscovered the beauty of praying in adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament. I am thinking, for example, of our Eucharistic adoration in Hyde Park, in London.

    I pray so that this Eucharistic "springtime" will spread increasingly in every parish, in particular in Belgium, the homeland of St. Juliana. The Venerable John Paul II, in the encyclical "Ecclesia de Eucharistia," said: "In many places, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is also an important daily practice and becomes an inexhaustible source of holiness. The devout participation of the faithful in the Eucharistic procession on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ is a grace from the Lord which yearly brings joy to those who take part in it. Other positive signs of Eucharistic faith and love might also be mentioned" (No. 10).

    Remembering St. Juliana of Cornillon we also renew our faith in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. As we are taught by the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "Jesus Christ is present in the Eucharist in a unique and incomparable way. He is present in a true, real and substantial way, with his Body and his Blood, with his Soul and his Divinity. In the Eucharist, therefore, there is present in a sacramental way, that is, under the Eucharistic species of bread and wine, Christ whole and entire, God and Man" (No. 282).

    Dear friends, fidelity to the encounter with the Eucharistic Christ in Sunday's Holy Mass is essential for the journey of faith, but let us try as well to frequently go to visit the Lord present in the Tabernacle! Gazing in adoration at the consecrated Host, we discover the gift of the love of God, we discover the passion and the cross of Jesus, and also his Resurrection. Precisely through our gazing in adoration, the Lord draws us to himself, into his mystery, to transform us as he transforms the bread and wine. The saints always found strength, consolation and joy in the Eucharistic encounter. With the words of the Eucharistic hymn "Adoro te devote," let us repeat before the Lord, present in the Most Blessed Sacrament: "Make me believe ever more in You, that in You I may have hope, that I may love You!" Thank you.

  • So basically B16 does what he's always done, striving mightily to keep the post-conciliar myth alive.  It's all smoke and mirrors, a bold lie of breathtaking proportions.  A true "Eucharistic springtime" will emerge no sooner or later than modernistic New Church collapses and disapperars.  Until then we must shiver through our winter of discontent.

    As SS said yesterday, you have to remember that the people in the church do not think there is any crisis.  They are convinced that we are well on our way out of it and, in a matter of time, all will be back to "normal" -- whatever that means to them.  They like things just the way they are.

  • I wait patiently for the revelation of the Third Secret.  I think its message will erase forever all the ridiculous claims about a "new springtime."  No wonder that it is so actively suppressed.
