“I have come not to abolish but to fulfil.”
“In the first instance,
the finger of God inscribed the laws on tablets of stone
but now, it is in human hearts,
that He writes it (Ex 31:18; 2 Cor 3:3).“
“The New Testament lies hidden, in the Old;
the Old is made accessible, by the New.”
“His mother is the whole Church,
since it is she, who, by God’s grace,
gives birth to Christ’s members,
that is to say, those who are faithful to Him.
Again, His mother is every holy soul
who does the Father’s will
and whose fruitful charity is made known
in those, to whom she gives birth for Him,
“until he has been formed in them” (cf Gal 4:19)”
St Augustine (354-430)
Father and Doctor of Grace
“He is the one who teaches
the truth of prophecy
through His presence
and makes obedience
to the commandments possible
“When it comes to obeying the commandments
or enduring adversity,
the words uttered by the Father
should always echo in our ears –
“This is my Son, the beloved,
in whom I am well pleased,
listen to Him.”
St Pope Leo the Great (400-461)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“The Old Testament is like a radio
with its hidden voice
announcing the One to come.
The New Testament is like a television
because the Word became both
audible and visible.”
Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
” Christ instituted this new covenant,
the new testament, that is to say, in His Blood, (1 Cor 11:25) c
alling together a people made up of Jew and gentile,
making them one, not according to the flesh but in the Spirit.
This was to be the new People of God … :
“a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
… the people of God” (1 Pt 2:9).”

Annie,why can’t we get back to the Old Time Religion and Love Our Neighbor? Yesterday, Saint Elizabeth of the Hill Country made the news in Charlotte focusing on Fr Buckler not wearing a mask or gloves while giving us the Eucharist. I quit my job because I wasn’t wearing my mask while cleaning toilets and I was reported. I am not a person who puts up with this Drama in stupid retaliation. Is Satin turning everyone into liars, cheats, swindlers,and murders who kill because it’s a Choice! Yep,I am angry, but I am not going out and looting and burning as rioters are doing because the Police put a legal neck hold on a black man and he died. I was taught that hold when I was in Project MK Ultra along time ago and it can be done while standing as well. I would not and never used it because it’s not controllable and easily can kill. It should be removed from training and banned. Well I will get off my soap box. It’s just one man’s opinion anyway.

Hughie! I am sorry – I am sorry about the job, I am sorry about Fr Buckler! Very sorry but both you and Fr Buckler are IN THE RIGHT – it is NOT just an opinion Hughie – it is the truth and it is just.
Why can’t we get back to the way it was – because the world has opened it’s door to satan and his minions, it has rejected God, the Church too is in error – very sadly – things are not going well for the world and I am convinced the Lord – the JUST AND LOVING Lord has had it with mankind!
Today being Corpus Christi we had a Solemn High Mass today followed by a procession and Adoration. It was so beautiful. My friend Matt did a great job singing, although he always picks the longer versions. Fr Buckler wore a mask and sanitized his hands between each host. the rows cordoned off properly. Know what we need is MORE Worshipers and Adorers. Yeah, I know I ‘d complain if they hung with a new rope.

Most of the world will be celebrating Corpus Christi on Sunday though.
This masked priest and hand cleaning sounds ridiculous – I simply HATE ALL THIS RUBBISH and the fact that the Bishops have proved themselves – or generally disproved themselves. MAKES ME SICK!
