BREAKING NEWS: New Filipino Cardinal!

A comment from The Master of None

First of all, pectoral crosses are worn INSIDE the chasuble. Secondly, he should've worn a chain, not a pectoral cross cord. Lastly, he denoted himself a cardinal by wearing red cords. LMAO. Oh, and right thumb crosses over the left.

Susme, walang kang galang sa Cardinal!

Still relevant to discuss today as it was then...

We have some problems to-day with balancing the Mass as a community gathering and as a sacrificial act of worship. What can be done? I think it is fairly simple: when addressing the people, the Priest looks at them. 
When addressing the Father, he lifts his eyes to heaven, as Jesus did. And when addressing Jesus Himself at Communion time, he looks at the Eucharist on the Altar.
- Rev. Fr. Tim Deeter

BREAKING NEWS! New Bishop of New Diocese

It was announced earlier today that Pope has named a new Bishop to lead the newly cratered diocese of Scarborough Shoal which is disputed by many a country. 

We tried reaching the new bishop for his comment but he has blocked us from sending him the traditional warning message.

The head should be uncovered in the presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  

Susme, even the Pope removes his skull cap during the procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament!

Is he higher than the Pope?

This rubric is so basic, even the laity knows that the head of men should be uncovered, even when entering the church.

It is so basic that even by just observing the Mass of a bishop, you will notice that they remove their skull caps by the end of the Prayer over the Gifts.

Another word for skull cap is solideo.  Soli  is only, and Deo is God.  This means that the bishop removes this head piece only in the presence of God.

Eh ano yang naka-biretta sa Eucharistic Procession.

Naturingang Defender of the Faith eh basic liturgy and theology, kulang.  Gaya nga ng kasabihan. Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, Lex Vivendi.

Kaya pala walang galang sa ibang tao kasi walang galang mismo sa Diyos.

Pastoral Guidance on the Implementation of the Reproductive Health Law

Now that the RH Bill is a law, because too few bishops and priests fought against it, and how do you expect the laity to rally against this evil when their own shepherds prefer to sing and dance with the tune than fight, below is the CBCP guide on the RH Law.

As teachers of the faith and morality, and assisted by legal experts, the bishops are presenting an outline of the salient points in the Supreme Court decision which they think may be helpful for our pastoral ministry and discernment.

Read more HERE

The Episcopal Commission on Family and Life as well at the CBCP Legal Office will be available to give formation seminars in the various ecclesiastical circumscriptions upon the invitation of the bishops. May Mary Mother of Life guide our every step in protecting the dignity of human life and protecting every human life from harm! “Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward” (Ps 127:3).

Sinusuot mo ba ito?

Today begins the novena to Mary, under her title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Do you wear Mary's cloth with faith and devotion, or do you prefer to wear amulets from Feng Shui shops?

Sloppy Cardinal

He is the main celebrant, but his concelebrants vest relatively more properly than him.  If he can do this in Milan, why can he not do it in his own native land?
