Apparently the US Conference of Catholic Bureaucrats Bishops is finally going to address the problem of declining belief in the Real Presence.

Now, if your just the average Joe or Jane in the pew you might say, “Bravo! It’s about time.” Then you might ask, how exactly are the successors to the apostles going to solve this problem of disbelief and even sacrilege?

Is the USCCB going to (finally) proclaim that those public Catholics who by their very own words and deeds excommunicate themselves from the Church, are to be denied the Eucharist? (This would of course be immensely merciful, demonstrating a true concern for the salvation of souls).

Possibly these bishops will finally end the 50 year failed experiment of distributing Holy Communion in the Hand, and return to to venerable tradition of the Roman Rite to only receive the Eucharist on the tongue.

While they’re at it, I’m sure our sagacious shepherds will rush to have altar rails restored so that the faithful can once again kneel to receive Our Lord at that most sublime moment of the Mass.

Well, if you believed that the USCCB was finally going to do something to address this crisis of their own making, you were wrong. Very wrong.

No, after all the uproar and headlines, after all the very public catfights and papal hints, we have the bureaucrats bishops response.

A paper.

Yes, another position paper.

This one is apparently called, “The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church”… which sounds official enough, if not a bit dry.

In true USCCB fashion, however, in lieu of doing something that might actually increase belief in the Real Presence, immediately address the ongoing sacrilege and profanation of the Eucharist, or tackle head-on the scandalous acts of the so-called Catholic politburo, they instead do this:

“In addition to approving the document, titled “The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church,” the bishops approved a strategic plan for a three-year eucharist revival campaign… (the) initiative is to include the development of new teaching materials, training for diocesan and parish leaders, the launch of a dedicated revival website, and the deployment of a special team of 50 priests who will travel the country to preach about the Eucharist.

Websites and pamphlets. Wow, isn’t that inspiring?

Oh, and training. Well, that ensures more money for the folks who kick out cool looking training material for the volunteer catechists who are (apparently) supposed to accomplish what the bishops have been completely incapable of doing for decades.

And a team of 50 priests to preach on the Eucharist…? Well sure, I guess, but isn’t that supposed to be happening already? From every ambo in every parish every Sunday?

Imagine not recognizing that how we practice our faith, tangible liturgical practices-such as our manner of receiving communion-isn’t even considered one of the possible solutions?

Even worse, imagine that our bishops might recognize this to be a factor but might be so cowardly, indifferent, or both that they refuse to go there.

Deny the Eucharist to public, unrepentant, sinners? No, no, no. How about a new website instead! Surely Biden and Francis approve of this impotent response.

It’s good to see that in this time of constant change we can always count on the USCCB to be an ineffectual embarrassment.

Bishops not bureaucrats. Is that too much to ask for? Apparently it is.

  1. Stephen KrampStephen KrampI really enjoy the Liturgy Guy’s insights. And I’m sure this is what he expected to be the outcome of the meeting.This is the document that I expected. They confirmed more than disappointed.Anyone who truly believed the bishops would issue a document against pro-abortion politicians, was living in dream world. (Many of us Catholics hoped they would, but we didn’t believe that they would.) Some bishops are pro-life liberals, some are just liberals, and some are too afraid to face the ”mob” should they promote faithful Catholic teachings. Oh, and there are a handful of faithful Catholic Bishops!There is a reason Dante put many popes and bishops in the deepest section of Hell.The Church in America will continue to spiral down–my prediction–until we have a pope and bishops who truly believe the Church’s teachings and are unafraid to proclaim the Good News.Svara1Gilla-markering

  4. DontexDontex”Bishops not bureaucrats.” That is a great line. The money spent on maintaining the offices of the USCCB could well be spent supporting the priests and religious who travel the back roads of the county trying to make sacraments available to Catholics and evangelizing.
    The USCCB Campaign for Human Development is rife with administrative mistakes in the awarding of grants – especially to groups that do not follow the teachings of the Church. And even when made aware of the problems with the CHD, the bishops do nothing.
    Bishops all over the country are closing or consolidating parishes because of dwindling resources, but the USCCB never seems to run out of money.
    The faithful in the pews would have a lot more respect for the bishops if they would act like bishops and not bureaucrats.SvaraGilla

      2m sedanHOW SHOULD WE RECEIVE OUR LORD IN HOLY EUCHARIST TO PREVENT LOSS OF FRAGMENTS AND MAINTAIN APPROPIATE REVERENCE?“There is the grievous fact of the loss of Eucharistic fragments because of Communion in the hand. No one can deny this. Fragments of the consecrated host fall to the floor and are subsequently crushed by feet. This is horrible! Our God is trampled on in our churches! No one can deny it. This is happening on a large scale. We cannot continue as if Jesus our God is not really present, as though the Eucharist is only bread. As I said before, the modern practice of Communion in the hand has nothing to do with the practice in the ancient Church.”⚜ Bishop Athanasius SchneiderIn the preface to a book by an Italian priest, Don Federico Bortoli, published under the title ‘The Distribution of Communion on the Hand: A Historical, Juridical and Pastoral Survey’, Cardinal Robert Sarah, the Former Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments offers a long defense of communion on the tongue.“Why do we insist on receiving Communion standing and on the hand?” asks Cardinal Sarah.“The liturgy is made up of many small rituals and gestures — each of them is capable of expressing these attitudes filled with love, filial respect and adoration toward God,” he writes.That is precisely why it is appropriate to promote the beauty, fittingness and pastoral value of a practice which developed during the long life and tradition of the Church, that is, the act of receiving Holy Communion on the tongue and kneeling. The greatness and nobility of man, as well as the highest expression of his love for his Creator, consists in kneeling before God.“We can understand that the most insidious diabolical attack consists in trying to extinguish faith in the Eucharist, by sowing errors and fostering an unsuitable way of receiving it,” continues the Guinean cardinal. “Satan’s target is the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus in the consecrated Host.”The high-ranking prelate does not hesitate to argue against communion on the hand, rightly pointing out that it “undoubtedly involves a great scattering of fragments”. And if Christ is truly present in the host, He is also present in the tiniest fragment. The risk of profanation or a lack of respect is greatly increased.QUOTES ON RECEPTION OF HOLY COMMUNION‘Prophet of The People: A Biography of Padre Pio’ Dorothy M. Gaudiose (Page 202)“Then he uncovered the chalice, but before he offered the unconsecrated wafer on the paten, he ran his fingers around the Host to make sure there were no loose particles.”Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., EWTN Talk“Also, I want to state very clearly that the experiment of giving communion in the hand has been a disaster.”Father John Hardon, S.J., November, 1997“Behind communion-in-the-hand – I wish to repeat and make as plain as I can – is a weakening, a conscious, a deliberate weakening of faith in the Real Presence.”Pope John Paul II, ‘Dominicae Cenae’ Feb 24, 1980“To touch the sacred species and to distribute them with their own hands is a privilege of the ordained…”“But one must not forget the primary office of priests, who have been consecrated by their ordination to represent Christ the Priest: for this reason their hands, like their words and their will, have become the direct instruments of Christ. Through this fact, that is, as ministers of the Holy Eucharist, they have a primary responsibility for the sacred species, because it is a total responsibility: they offer the bread and wine, they consecrate it, and then distribute the sacred species to the participants in the assembly who wish to receive them. Deacons can only bring to the altar the offerings of the faithful and, once they have been consecrated by the priest, distribute them. How eloquent therefore, even if not of ancient custom, is the rite of the anointing of the hands in our Latin ordination, as though precisely for these hands a special grace and power of the Holy Spirit is necessary!”Dietrich von Hildebrand, ‘The Devastated Vineyand’ p 67-68, 1973“Unfortunately, in many places Communion is distributed in the hand. To what extent is this supposed to be a renewal and a deepening of the reception of Holy Communion? Is the trembling reverence with which we receive this incomprehensible gift perhaps increased by receiving it in our unconscentrated hands, rather than from the consecrated hands of the priest? It is not difficult to see that the danger of parts of the consecrated Host falling to the ground is incomparably increased, and the danger of desecrating it or indeed of horrible blasphemy is very great. And what in the world is to be gained from all this?”COMMUNION RECEIVED ON THE TONGUE AND WHILE KNEELING
      (Office For The Liturgical Celebrations Of the Supreme Pontiff 2009)The most ancient practice of distributing Holy Communion was, with all probability, to give Communion to the faithful in the palm of the hand. The history of the liturgy, however, makes clear that rather early on a process took place to change this practice.From the time of the Fathers of the Church, a tendency was born and consolidated whereby distribution of Holy Communion in the hand became more and more restricted in favor of distributing Holy Communion on the tongue. The motivation for this practice is two-fold:a) First, to avoid, as much as possible, the dropping of Eucharistic particles;b) Second, to increase among the faithful devotion to the Real Presence of Christ in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.Saint Thomas Aquinas also refers to the practice of receiving Holy Communion only on the tongue. He affirms that touching the Body of the Lord is proper only to the ordained priest.Therefore, for various reasons, among which the Angelic Doctor cites respect for the Sacrament, he writes: “. . . out of reverence towards this Sacrament, nothing touches it, but what is consecrated; hence the corporal and the chalice are consecrated, and likewise the priest’s hands, for touching this Sacrament. Hence, it is not lawful for anyone else to touch it except from necessity, for instance, if it were to fall upon the ground, or else in some other case of urgency” (Summa Theologiae, III, 82, 3).Dela1Gilla-markering

Under vissa omständigheter som utlöser dem, stänker dessa minnen, dessa känslor, dagligen och överväldigar oss som plötsliga starka känslor som vi inte kan innehålla och tvinga oss att bete oss irrationellt. Ibland kan de också orsaka oss vissa fysiska tecken och till och med sjukdomar. I sådana fall talar vi om psykosomatiska sjukdomar. Sömnlöshet, huvudvärk, buksmärtor och andra delar av kroppen, allergier, andningsproblem och olika inflammationer, och till och med cancer, kan vara konsekvenserna av vissa psykologiska traumor från barndomen. Medicin, psykologi och psykiatri hjälper redan till stor del till att förstå dessa problem och är mycket bra på att diagnostisera. Men ibland mer ibland kan de lindra och behandla dessa svårigheter. I andliga övningar för inre helande accepterar vi vården och motsätter oss dem inte. Men vi försöker uppgradera dem och komplettera dem med andliga medel. Vi ber Jesus att med sin kärlek hela våra sårade hjärtan, våra inre sår, smärtsamma minnen från vårt förflutna. Hans helande kärlek kan först upplevas i en grundlig bekännelse och i en djupgående gemenskap av eukaristin. När vi förlåter andra befriar vi oss själva först och helar oss själva. Genom tal, i bönatmosfären, i tillbedjan inför den Allraheligaste, i begrundan i tystnad över Guds ord, genom att skriva en personlig berättelse, försöker vi upptäcka rötterna till våra emotionella, fysiska och sociala problem. Dessa rötter förs sedan till Jesus i olika personliga och gemensamma böner, i en ödmjuk begäran om att röra vid och läka dem. Vi ber honom också att hjälpa oss att förbättra vårt sätt att tänka och leva och att behålla vårt helande. Han leder p. Mia Kekić DJ. Tack för att du registrerade dig. Ansökan skickades in!

Titus Brandsma: časnikar, mučenec, svetnik 20. stoletja Mojca Masterl Štefanič Za vas piše: Mojca Masterl Štefanič Sv. Titus Brandsma: časnikar, mučenec, svetnik 20. stoletja Sv. Titus Brandsma. FOTO: Wikimedia Papež Frančišek je med včerajšnjim slovesnim bogoslužjem na Trgu sv. Petra v Vatikanu razglasil deset novih svetnikov. Med njimi je tudi Titus Brandsma, nizozemski duhovnik iz reda karmeličanov, pa tudi časnikar, mistik in mučenec, primeren zavetnik spletnih časnikarjev in blogerjev. 7 stvari, ki jih je dobro vedeti o novem svetniku: 1. Čudež na njegovo priprošnjo vključuje sobrata karmeličana. Ko je p. Michael Driscoll, karmeličan iz ameriške zvezne države Florida, leta 2004 prejel diagnozo melanoma 4. stopnje, je vedel, na koga se bo obrnil: začel je moliti za priprošnjo bl. Titusa Brandsme, mučenca iz nacističnega koncentracijskega taborišča Dachau. Duhovniški kolega je p. Michaelu podaril relikvijo drugega reda, košček črne tkanine iz Brandsminega talarja, ki si jo je p. Michael vsak dan pritisnil na čelo, ko je molil za ozdravljenje. Prestal je že številne operacije, da bi mu z obraza odstranili manjša rakava znamenja, tokrat pa je bil rak že zelo razširjen. Kirurgi so mu odstranili velik melanom z glave in vratu, pa tudi 84 bezgavk in slinavko. Po mnenju zdravnikov je imel zelo malo možnosti za okrevanje. In vendar je okreval. Preiskovalna komisija v škofiji Palm Beach je več kot leto dni analizirala njegovo ozdravljenje, pogovarjala se je z zdravniki p. Michaela in drugimi medicinskimi izvedenci ter 12 patrovimi župljani in dvema duhovnikoma. 25. maja 2021 je senat odločil, da je duhovnikovo ozdravljenje res čudežno, in svoje poročilo so poslali v končno preiskavo vatikanski Kongregaciji za zadeve svetnikov. 9. novembra je ta kongregacija potrdila kanonizacijo in svojo odločitev posredovala papežu Frančišku. Dva tedna pozneje, 25. novembra, je papež pooblastil kardinala Marcella Semerara, prefekta omenjene kongregacije, naj izda odlok, s katerim je bil čudež potrjen – to je bil še zadnji korak na poti k kanonizaciji. 2. Kot časnikar je bil Titus Brandsma neustrašen. Titus Brandsma je spregovoril vsakokrat, ko se je zdelo, da se vsi drugi tiho obračajo stran. Pripravljen se je bil sam zoperstaviti vladi, ki se je upirala volji ljudi. Ko je v 30. in 40. letih prejšnjega stoletja živel in delal na Nizozemskem, družbena omrežja še niso bila razvita. Kar je papež Janez Pavel II. imenoval »digitalna celina« – ta nov način komuniciranja prek meja –, je bila tedaj stvar domišljije. Kljub temu je Titus Brandsma, duhovnik karmeličanskega reda in časnikar, uspel na široko komunicirati z nizozemskimi verniki. Delal je kot urednik svojega krajevnega časnika in kot cerkveni svetovalec katoliških časnikarjev pri približno 30 nizozemskih časnikih. Kip novega svetnika. FOTO: Vatican Media 3. Poleg časnikarskega dela je bil tudi akademik. P. Brandsma je predaval na več univerzah po Nizozemski, v nizozemščino je iz španščine prevedel delo sv. Terezije Avilske. Bil je eden od ustanoviteljev Katoliške univerze v Nijmegnu (danes univerza Radboud), kjer je predaval filozofijo in zgodovino misticizma, pozneje pa je bil njen rektor. Bil je priljubljen zaradi svojega velikodušnega duha in znan po svoji nenehni dostopnosti vsem, ki so iskali njegov nasvet. 4. P. Brandsma je avtor množično razširjenega pastoralnega pisma nizozemskih katoliških škofov, v katerem so obsodili antisemitizem, brali pa so ga v župnijah po vsej državi. V Nemčiji so se skupaj z deportacijo prvih Judov iz Nizozemske pojavljala nizkotna čustva. Nizozemski škofje so v pismu predstavili ostro nasprotje med katolištvom in nacizmom ter pokazali, da sta obe ideologiji povsem nezdružljivi. V Hitlerjevi Nemčiji odziv nacistov na pastoralno pismo ni bil takšen, kot so upali nizozemski škofje: več kot 3.000 judovskih spreobrnjencev v katoliško vero je bilo deportiranih iz Nizozemske. 5. P. Brandsma je pisal in govoril proti nacističnim protijudovskim zakonom o zakonski zvezi in propagandi. Leta 1942 so p. Brandsmo aretirali, potem ko je poskušal prepričati nizozemske katoliške časnike, naj ne tiskajo nacistične propagande (kar je zahteval nacistični okupator). Nemci so mu ponudili možnost, naj temu ne nasprotuje in bi lahko mirno živel v svojem samostanu, vendar je njihov predlog odločno zavrnil. FOTO: Vatican Media 6. P. Brandsma je umrl kot mučenec. P. Titus Brandsma je bil februarja 1942 premeščen v koncentracijsko taborišče Dachau. Julija istega leta je bil usmrčen s smrtonosno injekcijo. Medicinski sestri, ki mu je dala injekcijo, je odpustil in ji podaril rožni venec. Čeprav takrat ni bila verna, je pozneje postala katoličanka. 7. Njegov god obhajamo v mesecu juliju. Titusa Brandsmo je papež Janez Pavel II. za blaženega razglasil leta 1985, v karmeličanskem redu pa njegov god obhajajo 27. julija. Ob njegovi beatifikaciji je poljski papež dejal, da je »na sovraštvo odgovoril z ljubeznijo«. ”Maria, titta på oss!”” Det står till dig: ”Maria, titta på oss!”” ”Det blommar redan för dig, det luktar för dig, en bukett små blommor, Mary!” Vi har gått in i maj månad, som är tillägnad vår himmelska Moder Maria. Den här månaden läser vi marhas, sjunger Marjis dikter och vänder oss till Maria med särskild uppmärksamhet. Den första marman var nattvarden 1851 ”Marias säregenhet i maj månad är tillbaka till 1500-talet, och regelbunden fromhet utvecklades först på 1700-talet. Den första spaten var nattvarden i Ljubljana 1851 vid seminariets seminarium. Hängivenheten spred sig snart till andra institutioner och församlingar, bland annat utanför Ljubljana, och tog snabbt en stark vändning för folket. Andakten, som de började namnge efter majonnäsblommorna, partytältet, utfördes snart utanför kyrkan – i byn, i kapellen och i skyltarna”, skrev Niko Kurent i boken Slovenernas festliga år. Šmarnice är fortfarande en av de mest populära folkfromheterna i Slovenien. FOTO: Tatjana Splichal Under de kommande dagarna kan vi också vända oss till Maria genom att be nästa bön, skriven av den pensionerade påven Benedictus XVI. Bönen publicerades ursprungligen i Youcat Prayer Book för ungdomar. Maria, du sa ditt ja, du lyssnade på Jesus, och du känner ljudet av hans röst och hjärtat av hans hjärta. Du, stjärnan danica, berätta om honom och berätta för oss hur du följde honom på trons väg. Maria, som bodde med Jesus i Nasaret, präglar sina känslor i våra liv: hans öppenhet, hans tystnad, att lyssna till Guds ord och göra det till ett verkligt fritt val. Maria, berätta om Jesus, att hon från våra ögon kommer att återspegla friskheten i vår tro och kommer att förtöja hjärtan hos alla som möter oss – som du gjorde med ditt besök hos Elizabeth, som vid en hög ålder gladde sig med dig gåvan av ett nytt liv. Maria, jungfru magnificata, hjälp oss att föra glädje till världen, och som i Kana, uppmuntra alla unga människor som ger sig till sina bröders bästa att bara göra vad Jesus säger åt dem att göra. Maria, se på de unga människorna för att bli kyrkans bördiga jord. Han ber att Jesus, som dog och uppstod, ska återfödas i oss och förvandla oss till en natt full av ljus som är dränkt av honom. Maria, Guds Moder, din himmelska port, hjälp oss att rikta blicken uppåt. Vi vill se på Jesus. Vi vill prata med honom. Vi vill förkunna hans kärlek till alla.

Gifted with excellent health, Verena grew up happy, intelligent, generous and a lover of nature. She began to attend school at seven years of age. The fervour and commitment with which she made her First Communion, on the 16th of April 1860, remained constant in her for the rest of her life. Devotion to the Eucharist would, in fact, form the foundation of her spirituality. Having completed her elementary studies at the age of 14, Verena dedicated herself to farm work and experienced affection for a worthy young man with whom she fell in love. On feeling the call of God, she broke off the engagement in order to turn completely to the Lord. During this period in her life she was granted the grace of enjoying the presence of God, feeling Him very close. She herself said: ”To explain this state of soul to someone who has never experienced anything similar is extremely difficult, if not impossible”.

They do not inhabit separate cities of their own, or speak a strange dialect, or follow some outlandish way of life. Their teaching is not based upon reveries inspired by the curiosity of men. Unlike some other people, they champion no purely human doctrine. With regard to dress, food and manner of life in general, they follow the customs of whatever city they happen to be living in, whether it is Greek or foreign… Christians love all men, but all men persecute them. Condemned because they are not understood, they are put to death, but raised to life again. They live in poverty, but enrich many; they are totally destitute, but possess an abundance of everything. They suffer dishonor, but that is their glory. They are defamed, but vindicated. A blessing is their answer to abuse, deference their response to insult. For the good they do they receive the punishment of malefactors, but even then they rejoice, as though receiving the gift of life. They are attacked by the Jews as aliens, they are persecuted by the Greeks, yet no one can explain the reason for this hatred… Christians love those who hate them just as the soul loves the body and all its members despite the body’s hatred. It is by the soul, enclosed within the body, that the body is held together, and similarly, it is by the Christians, detained in the world as in a prison, that the world is held together. The soul, though immortal, has a mortal dwelling place; and Christians also live for a time amidst perishable things, while awaiting the freedom from change and decay that will be theirs in heaven. As the soul benefits from the deprivation of food and drink, so Christians flourish under persecution. Such is the Christian’s lofty and divinely appointed function, from which he is not permitted to excuse himself. Amen Lijepo je što postojiš 4 m · Kada je metak pogodio moje srce, nisam umro. Umro sam kada sam vidio tko je pucao. Tomislav Ivančić 7 m · [GENERACIJA DUHA SVETOGA] ”Ajmo biti generacija Duha Svetoga, trijezna, mirna, razumna generacija. Duh Sveti ti pomaže u bitkama i borbama. On je Tješitelj, Iscjelitelj, Ravnatelj, Ljubitelj čovjeka. On je čovjekova sloboda, mir. U njemu vidimo tko smo, kamo idemo, odakle Smo. Sve je u Duhu.” (Od Uskrsa do Duhova) Foto: Laudato – koncert Progledaj srcem https://l.facebook.com/l.php… services/liturgy/saints/2008/ns_lit_doc_20081012_verena_en.html?fbclid=IwAR259_9kOGfc00SBV-BFsfZAv7ShqD2c7YvW5vgAUwf8ekF68sXHQpGAVcU https://www.medjugorje-info.com/…/primite-blagoslov-oca…
