When you see a liturgical abuse...

 Do you need a college degree before you can even notice something wrong in this?

And this?

And this....

Or this...

And this...

And this...

And this...


Poor guys who got a degree from You-Know-Who...

They need to trumpet their diplomas to get their license and to shut you up.

And what I think is surprising is that these very individuals who trumpet their association with the "world-renowned liturgist" and their "degree in Liturgy" or their "certificate of attending a seminar in Liturgy or Congress in Liturgy," conducted by You-Know-Who or his diminutive padawan or his associate nun, or some who claims such ludicrous titles like "Pontifical Masters of Ceremonies" when they are not even assisting in a Papal Mass or have not been given that title by the Holy Father....


In fact, they are the very ones who either tolerate it or encourage it or are the very architects of the abuse!

They tell you, that you do not have the right to say anything against the abuse that you have seen or even shout..."Broken faucet!".  (if you are on my Facebook list of friends, you'll know what this corny joke is all about. Ha!)

So, if someone tells you to shut up if you cannot show your degree or certificate in Liturgy, give him a copy of the Instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum, which obviously they would not and have never read, along with the Motu Propio Summorum Pontificum:

Here is what Redemptionis Sacramentum, advises us in the even we witness a liturgical abuse:

6. Complaints Regarding Abuses in Liturgical Matters

[183.] In an altogether particular manner, let everyone do all that is in their power to ensure that the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist will be protected from any and every irreverence or distortion and that all abuses be thoroughly corrected. This is a most serious duty incumbent upon each and every one, and all are bound to carry it out without any favouritism.

[184.] Any Catholic, whether Priest or Deacon or lay member of Christ’s faithful, has the right to lodge a complaint regarding a liturgical abuse to the diocesan Bishop or the competent Ordinary equivalent to him in law, or to the Apostolic See on account of the primacy of the Roman Pontiff.[290] It is fitting, however, insofar as possible, that the report or complaint be submitted first to the diocesan Bishop. This is naturally to be done in truth and charity.

I bolden the letters to put emphasis.

It all takes a brave soul to lodge a complaint against Fr. Sobre and his dancing tambourined go-go dancers...

I cannot do it myself.  I'll lose whatever I have as a senior Knight, being a past Grand Knight, former District Deputy and a Faithful Navigator.

Some of you laity can do it.

But do it in TRUTH and CHARITY.

Submit a photo of the abuse, cite what provision of the liturgical law was violated and submit either to the superior or bishop of the priest or deacon in question.

Yup.  You do not need to attach a resume or a photocopy of a degree in Liturgy to lodge the complaint.

Redemptionis Sacramentum nor the Code of Canon Law require it.


  1. After reading the Instruction Redmptionis Sacramentum, I was like "Oh God...". Sobrang nakakaewan lang nung nabasa ko. Lahat yata ng liturgical abuses nagawa na sa chapel namin. (Pray, Mr. TPC, that these abuses will not anymore be done, not only in our parish church, but also in all the churches around the world)

    Naisip ko tuloy: Bakit hindi maglagay ng TV program (sa mga Catholic channels) tungkol sa Redemptionis Sacramentum? I-broadcast sa Radio Veritas?

    Diba sabi nga ang pinakanakatakot mangyari ay yung hindi na alam ng tao na mali pala ang ginagawa nila? LITURGICAL ABUSE IS ONE EXAMPLE! Mama Mary, Pray for us! St. Joseph, Pray for us!

  2. Sana isipin din yung ng mga modernists theologians at mg paring na gumagawa ng liturgical abuse kung pleasing ba sa Diyos ang ginagawa nila o pleasing sa mga tao?...
    Mag isip isip muna sila...
