Something I never thought I would see (since the sad silencing of Mother Angelica) apparently EWTN will be airing a Solemn High Mass for the Exaltation of The Holy Cross on 14 Sept…I am very much looking forward to this and I know that Mother will be shedding tears of joy to see THE Mass on her network…
The battle for Tradition is a long way from being won and those of us need to remember that just because the Holy Father blessed us with his Motu Proprio does not mean that all is fine now….The essence of conciliar error is still at the heart of the crisis within Holy Mother Church & this will not be resolved by the aforementioned Motu Proprio.
In conversations with so-called "Conservative Catholics" they see this as something beautiful but again they rally behind the Modernist cry that "The Mass is The Mass" well, it is not……
This viewing of the Solemn High Mass will indeed be interesting however; I fear the the discussion panels that EWTN will have will, unfortunately be riddled with conciliar clap-trap and one-sided half-truths…..The very thought that Catholics would need to have discussions to explain what happens at Holy Mass is a sad thing in the first place but, I only hope that they do not turn it into Novus Ordo minded "explanation" which I fear will happen………..
Today 06-Sept. begins the Novena to the Sorrowful Mother:
"MOST BLESSED and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs, who didst stand generously beneath the cross, beholding the agony of thy dying Son; by the sword of sorrow which then pierced thy soul, by the sufferings of thy sorrowful life, by the unutterable joy which now more than repays thee for them; look down with a mother’s pity and tenderness, as I kneel before thee to compassionate thy sorrows, and to lay my petition with childlike confidence in thy wounded heart. I beg of thee, O my Mother, to plead continually for me with thy Son, since He can refuse thee nothing, and through the merits of His most sacred Passion and Death, together with thy own sufferings at the foot of the cross, so to touch His Sacred Heart, that I may obtain my request, Here pause and name the favours which you are asking Our Sorrowful Mother to obtain for you through this Novena. (Let your secondary intention be to pray for the intentions of all the people making this Novena anywhere in the world. Thus a great mass prayer for all Novena intentions will arise to Our Blessed Mother.) For to whom shall I fly in my wants and miseries, if not to thee, O Mother of mercy, who, having so deeply drunk the chalice of thy Son, canst most pity us poor exiles, still doomed to sigh in this vale of tears? Offer to Jesus but one drop of His Precious Blood, but one pang of His adorable Heart; remind Him that thou art our life, our sweetness, and our hope, and thou wilt obtain what I ask, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Hail Mary, Virgin Most Sorrowful, pray for us." (Seven times)
