Update On The USCCB Scandal, Part IV
The bishops circle the wagons, the panicing begins

Maybe it's just me, but I find it odd, shall we say, there has been no denial from the USCCB in regards to heaps of money being thrown at pro-abortion/pro-homosexual groups.

Thanks for posting this Caveman. I just got around to watching all 4 videos. I also posted them on my Facebook page, since I haven't heard a single one of my friends bring this up.

My question is: What do we do? Do we send our Bishop's a 'sternly worded' letter? Do we bypass the collection plate until this is resolved?

Quite frankly, I'm getting really tired of this helpless feeling. Our country is spiraling down the crapper so fast it's making my head spin. I, for one, am not convinced that we'll even have elections in November...and even if we do, the Oba-messiah and his minions will do everything they can to steal it.

Now this. It's all well and good to sit here and complain about how wrong it is, but our opinions won't amount to anything when it comes right down to it.

I sound really negative....don't I? Anyway, it's Friday night and I should go relax and have fun.

Although if anyone has any actionable ideas, please post them!!

As for me, this is what I'm doing --

1. Exclusively attend the Latin Mass. The more the numbers grow, the more they get the message.

2. Never ever attend the Novus Ordo. The more the numbers decrease, the more they get the message.

3. Never give one cent to anything the USCCB is associated with.

4. Let people know what's going on!

5. Pray. Especially ask for the intercession of Our Lady of Akita.

But all this is just me. God will point you in the right direction He wants you to go. Hope this helps!

We have Latin Mass available every Sunday morning at a church about 10 minutes further away than our normal church.

HOWEVER.....our normal church is one of two minor basilicas in Iowa. It is BEAUTIFUL. Our priest is fantastic! He came to us directly from Rome. We have sacred music played on a pipe organ, Latin as much you can for a Novus Ordo. I became Catholic there, we were married there, our kids were baptized there and our oldest son received First Communion there. But it is a NO Mass. If our priest is gone, it's totally a grab bag of what kind of hippie crap/heresy the retired fill-in priest is going to subject us to. We also have a lot of other very conservative home-school families that go there.

The TLM is held in a basement. Folding chairs, bright (and I mean BRIGHT) florescent lights, a coffee pot gurgling in the background. The priest is great, it's just the ambiance and the fact that it's not 'our church.'

Our priest is going on sabbatical from June-August and we're planning on attending the TLM exclusively. My husband is ready to switch now, but I'm holding out hope our priest will offer it at our church.

Heather, the TLM will not grow if you all stay in the basilica.

I tend to agree w/ JLS. I'm sure your parish is stunning in it's architecture, and that the pastor is one heckuva nice guy... but llike you said, the moment he's gone, and semblence of The Sacred and reverence for God will be swept away in a flood of "worship me" BS.

With alll that said, I'm asking you in fraternal love - do you go to Mass because of a beautiful church and a wonderful priest.... or to worship God Almighty in a fashion that you KNOW is Modernist proof?

It's with respect for you that I ask you to please take a look at this picture.

It was taken atthe exact same place as this picture was taken.

I'm ready to switch. I understand the "sentimental" issues involved with our family though.

I'm just pissed that to switch to the Latin Mass will literally be "going underground". Why should tradition be hidden? Why is there so much animosity to tradition by people in the church?

Makes me sad...and angry.

I do hope things change, but then I also believe there is only a remnant left.

Underground is sometimes good. It is traditional. There is a Franciscan monastery in Washington DC which has a replica of the underground tunnels where the Catholics hid and worshiped in early Rome during the severe persecutions.
