The Schism No One Wants To Call A Schism
The Sacrament of Penance all but abandoned in Holland

Just like Holy Water for sand... the Sacrament of Penance has gone the way of how you feeeeeeeeel. But hey, maybe the Dutch have given up Confession for Lent.

No. I have that sinking feeling that the Confessional is now going to be the second loneliest place in Dutch churches --- second only to how lonely Christ must be with the Tabernacles hidden away in various Sacred Broom Closets... oops, I mean "Adoration Chapels".

Anyhow, I posted a couple of weeks ago concerning a brave priest who had the audacity (insert snarkiness HERE) to refuse Holy Communion to a self-proclaim homosexual "Prince" (shouldn't it have been 'Princess' in light he is really a Queen?).

But I asked the musical question if this particular priest, one Father Luc Buyens, would "fold like do many other of his confrères?"

Well, he didn't. But you can bet your ass that his confrères did.

Hundreds of pink wigged deviants crowded into Sint Jan's Cathedral to disrupt Mass. Here's a bit of the article (LifeSiteNews) from March 1st in regards; (Emphasis mine)

Anticipating the protest, the diocese announced that Communion would not be distributed. In his homily, Fr. van Rossem explained that he was "compelled by conscience" to not offer Communion because it would be a "grave sacrilege" that the Holy Eucharist would become an object of protest and demonstration. Instead, he urged the congregation to make a spiritual communion.Ahhh, but that was March 1st. Here's what happened, as reported on March 3d (CatholicCulture.org); (Emphasis mine)

Dutch homosexuals call off disruptions as parish backs down on Communion

Militant homosexuals in the Netherlands have called off plans to disrupt worship at a Catholic parish in Den Bosch, after receiving assurances that the parish would not deny Communion to open homosexuals.

The dispute in the Sint-Jan parish began when a priest denied the Eucharist to a noted homosexual activist. Last Sunday a large group of homosexual activists, some wearing pink fright wigs, attended Mass at the parish, planning to present themselves for Communion. When the pastor decided not to distribute Communion, to avoid a disruption, the group marched out of the church in protest.

The parish has now announced that members of the congregation will be asked to decide for themselves whether they are properly disposed to receive Communion.
How sad to know that centuries upon centuries of Catholic martyrs died for nothing.

The Netherlands . . . from . . . Catholicism . . . to Protestantism . . . and . . . from Jansenism . . . to . . . apostasy. Is anybody surprised by this?

What surprises me is that the laity in thee places seem to accept it without a whimper, that is the real shocking aspect any one man be he Priest or Bishop can go bad but for whole parishes to do so is what really shocks the most.

It suggests people who disagree, and I'm sure someone there must, just leave and give up rather than stand and fight against it, which is not the Catholic way.

No, they didn't die for nothing, they died for those souls - and there are still many of us - faithful to Christ and His Church.

While I agree that they should stop this travesty, this sacrilege, immediately, the full recompense of their selfish actions will come back on them tenfold at the end of all things.

And God doesn't cave to pink-wigged protesters.

Amy,
I know that their deaths weren't in vain. I was making a dig at the wolf in sheep's clothing of a bishop there in The Netherlands.

Reads about the same as the Bible story of Sodom and Gomorrah, where the homosexuals stormed the only house with faithful people, and demanded they hand over the angels so they could "know" them.

The gay agenda doesn't have any self restraint, so we'll have to stay tuned to see what they demand next from that parish.

What are the names of the people in Congress who bowed their heads when the imam prayed?
