  • Yes. Having lived in Japan, I can attest that the people there are ripe for conversion.  Besides their natural virtues, they have the seriousness and discipline to become very good traditional Catholics.

    Yes!  And Asian cultures, especially the Japanese, are ingrained with the concept of order & social hierarchy.

    So a Catholic Heaven, Purgatory and Hell, earth and everything inbetween falls into a natural order for them.

    They have the potential to be the most loyal and militant Catholics.
    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

    "Well, I continue to ponder, who gave $$ to make a freestanding altar for Our Lady of Sorrows?  Our Lady of Sorrows, does she not still have mortgage to pay? Hm? Did she close her doors during the covid time? Hm? How about an award$$ received, related to the covid?  Didn't Our Lady of Sorrows also say yes to a 5G Tower near in the area to help off set costs?  Or was that 5G tower on their property?"

    (From the Mailbag -- John McFarland)

    One of my sons is the OLOS prior.

    The OLOS altar (and for that matter the church) were built with donations and borrowing, including mortgages.  There are still debts to be paid, but they're making good progress.

    Father McFarland advises that OLOS was never closed during "covid time."  Its masses were streamed to places where the churches were closed.  So much for Songbird's "award$$ received, related to the covid".

    When permission is given to install a 5G tower on someone's property, the owner of the property gets paid for its use.  If OLOS did so, it would hardly be surprising for a church with debts to pay.

    Want to say "thank you"?

  • Sorry, I'm a little late seeing this thread, but something about the altars bothered me, and I couldn't figure it out.  Then I realized how PLAIN they are, compared to the ornate altars of old churches.  

    The plainness does something: it takes your mind off God and forces you to focus on the priest.  Man-centered, again!  Because what else is there to direct your thoughts to God?  Nothing.  There is only the priest to watch and follow, even if his back is to you.

    And also, the plainness is so...plain.  Not ugly, really, but not breathtakingly beautiful.  My husband is fond of saying that when God is angry with His people He takes away things of beauty.  Food for thought....

  • There's a video on youtube where Fr. Rutledge is talking about the new church being built in Saint Mary's. In the video its computer animated and specifically shows its a free standing altar. He also mentions there will be no facade behind the altar because it takes away from the altar, sounds like modernism creep to me. The facade actually helps uplift the faith through visual. To bad these younger priests have been brainwashed.
