Bp. Schneider Directly Confronts Francis, Bishop of Rome, on "Banning... Holy Mass"

It appears that Bishop Athanasius Schneider is directly confronting Francis, the bishop of the "diocese of Rome."

The Catholic newspaper, The Remnant, asked Bishop Schneider the following pointed question about the "diocese of Rome" and he responded with a direct answer:

"The diocese of Rome swiftly suspended all public Masses to comply with the government directives. Bishops around the world [following Francis's example and lead] have taken similar actions. The Polish Bishops [unlike the diocese of Rome], on the other hand, have called for more Masses to be celebrated so that the congregation is smaller. What is your view on the decision [of Francis and other bishops] to suspend public Masses to prevent the spread of the coronavirus?"

"[Schneider said] As long supermarkets are open and accessible and as long as people have access to public transportation, one cannot see a plausible reason for banning people from assisting at Holy Mass in a church. One could guarantee in churches the same and even better hygiene protective measures.
(The Remnant, "A Remnant Interview: Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Church's handling if Coronavirus," March 27, 2020)

It appears that Bishop Schneider has never confronted Francis (and the bishops who have followed his lead) so directly as on this "banning... Holy Mass" in the "diocese of Rome" to supposedly stop the spread of the virus statement.

Schneider is right. Taiwan, only 80 miles away from Communist China, is the country most successful in stopping the spread of coronavirus in their country and it has proven this can be done with still allowing public Masses. In "banning... of Holy Mass" Francis doesn't represent "plausible reason[s]" as the bishop said is proven in Taiwan.
(en.prothmalo.com, "Say a little prayer, remotedly: Taiwan's faithful limited gatherings," March 22, 2020)

By saying Francis doesn't have "plausible reason" to ban public Masses in the "diocese of Rome," he is directly saying Francis doesn't have credible or believable "reason[s]" for his actions against the Mass.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Also, pray an Our Father now for God to give President Trump the grace to do His will in this present crisis.

All that is required of a Bishop, Priest, Layman is to Love the Lord thy God with all thy hear, soul mind, strength; have no other gods before you; keep the Sabbath holy.

In a purified Church, healthy and led from the top by a Catholic, then there would never be a *confrontation* (as you say), because we would all be living according to God’s Law in unity in Christ, Word.

In a sinful, perverted and idol worshipping Church, however, to be faithful to God is to be “confrontational with the Pope“; Bishop; Priest; Superior.

God first, middle, last - everything. I see God through my legitimate authorities: Pope, Bishops and priests. But if they move off the path; leave The Way - I no longer see them, because I will never lose sight of God.

In addition, to all the Laymen who are acutely missing Holy Mass, and to the Priests and Bishops who are suffering with us - I would like to point out that it’s possible, very possible to continue to publicly offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and *still* comply with any secular safety concerns.

My Parish is in a State in which the governor has imposed restrictions on 25 or more gathered in one place. Our SSPX Priest (God bless them all!) now holds ver twice as many Masses - limited to 24 by signup reservation only. He requests that young children not attend and those with any symptoms whatsoever. He requests, once there, we all keep proper spacing and approach the communion rail three at a time. No Altar Servers, so he makes multiple trips back and forth to the Tabernacle and uses his own Paten to preserve the precious Body. We are asked to leave immediately after Mass and not mix with the arriving Parishioners of the next Mass. Homily shortened significantly to remain within the allotted hour. Confession available 30 minutes prior (as always) for every Mass. Respect the neighbors. Wash your hands. Etc.

He is serving every Parishioner of the Parish AND he is showing all due respect to health concerns and legitimate secular authority.

THAT is how it is to be done. God is well pleased with this Priest and this Order in this time. It can be done!

May the movement grow that offers Mass to the People of God. It is an illegal order to demand it be withheld, without first making any attempt to offers it within the boundaries of safety and legitimate laws. There is no excuse for Bishops to withhold Mass completely and totally, rendering our communities, nation, world DARK!

So did Bp Schneider say where and when he is offering his celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass for the public? Or Cdl Burke? Did he mention in his call to pray the Rosary with him this coming April !st where and when he is offering a Mass for the public?

If I missed their announcements, please let me know.
There is hope for Schneider. He has never been heroic enough to publicly denounce Bergoglio's usurpation of the Roman See, but there is hope!

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.


Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
