ST PAUL EXHORTS US:
"Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold on to the traditions which you have learned."
2 Thessalonians 2:14
"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"
"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ" according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider: 1. Mass versus populum. 2. Communion in the hand. 3. The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers. 4. Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form. 5. Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.

Maranatha - Veni Domine Jesu - Come Lord Jesus
I recently read about the closure of a small neighborhood chapel dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The more I delved into the history of the chapel and its' faithful, the clearer it became to me what a bad omen it is for all Catholics who seek to believe, pray and worship as Catholics have always done. It occurred to me in a very clear way what we are up against at the present moment. For you see the Tridentine Mass at the chapel (for which permission had been given) was prohibited in October 2007. The chapel itself was closed in 2010 even though as one can read in the letter below, it was the Novus Ordo and not the traditional Mass which was celebrated in Latin with Gregorian chant. It gives one pause to ask whether the faithful of such churches & chapels as this one are among those who the holy father described as Pelagian "restorationist groups. I know some, it fell upon me to receive them in Buenos Aires. And one feels as if one goes back 60 years! Before the Council... One feels in 1940." As a member of the chapel parish wrote:
You see sisters and brothers the enemies of tradition (and this as you will see includes even those who wish to celebrate the Missal of Paul VI in Latin for the enemies of tradition have at the very least an aversion & ignorance or even a great hatred for the language of the Church at worst). They will stop at nothing to extirpate its' existence which they see as nothing short of a threat to their post conciliar concept of the Church. The Chapel of the Sacred Heart could (and does) mirror many communities around the world that draw the faithful from far distances who come to assist at an authentically Catholic liturgy and hear unambiguously Catholic sermons preached by faithful, zealous priests. We can no longer take these oases for granted.
Here is a description of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart from 2010:

A year after the closure of the Chapel
We would like to tell everyone and so we return to the beginning of this story. Some came that Sunday morning to Sacred Heart Chapel and there to their surprise was anger and tears.
We wondered what it took for Father Panaro to liquidate this haven of peace and devotion within three months .
We knew who hates Latin ( Do you think that if Christ returned today we speak Latin? this was once asked us) and Gregorian chant (inculturation is not to be against the Social Doctrine of the Church , he said) and he hates the cassock ( Antisigno, ie sign of the culture of death , he confessed). Still reluctantly endured in the papal liturgy.
We believe that what father Panaro could not stand was alive at Christ the King with that parishioners resisted his outrage that day on Corpus Christi. Shortly after hearing said: "It showed what's here inside" Because in the mind and in the hearts of many priests of this time there is no place for the Kingship of Jesus Christ our Lord. Small wonder whether or not one speaks Latin when He returns and do not realize that back King of kings and Lord of lords, "to hurt people with two-edged sword and rule with a rod of iron" ( Rev. 19-15).And the priests also although some of them do not believe.
Maranatha - Veni Domine Jesu - Come Lord Jesus.
Showing this entry you can see the video of the Tridentine Mass, banned by Cardinal Bergoglio.
On June 6 of last year, when he finished the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, diabolical furies were unleashed upon the membership of the Sacred Heart Chapel in Buenos Aires. A man, who can hardly be distinguished as Catholic priest suddenly appeared and interrupted the procession song to the Blessed Virgin, & began to rebuke all of them who of course did not understand what was happening.
But: what would be the sins of those people? Many, according to the mind and heart of progressivism that governs the Church in Buenos Aires. But all can be summarized in a few words: their attachment to authentic Catholic liturgy, which the Holy Father Benedict XVI is trying so hard to restore.
For such Could not be tolerated such an infectious focus could contaminate the neighborhood with Kneeling Communion, Gregorian chant, the Roman Canon said in Latin, etc.., which was Restored even before knowing that the Pope was interested in reviving them.
It Could not be tolerated the large number of young people who, Sunday after Sunday, filled the small chapel, who attracted by tradition, piety, and good preaching, while priests and locals do not know what to do to attract young people between the few snow white haired who are in attendance.
It could not be tolerated that the Blessed Sacrament was solemnly carried in procession (under canopy: how awful!) Twice a year to bless with his loving presence the neighborhood streets, which were deprived of him for many years.
It could not be tolerated the clear vibrant preaching by the strictly unambiguously Catholic Dr. Alfredo Sáenz, SJ, of international renown, who gave luster to his pious presence and wisdom, to that humble neighborhood chapel.
Neither could it continue to allow several other priests, principled and determined, who become part of the attending cast of his flock, while there they gave vent to their desire for traditional liturgy. Not the least was it over the priests also polluting newly formed devotion in the seminary.
And above all, do not forgive that this community could have gotten from his former pastor, now in exile, the application of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum only a month just published! It could never be forgotten the Cardinal Bergoglio, who has been practicing a plan to boycott the will of the Supreme Pontiff expressed in that document.
For all that, this Solemn Mass of Corpus Christi was the last .
Today Sacred Heart Chapel is closed. While Protestant sects continuously ring the doorbells of houses, your Chapel bell has been called to silence by the Hierarchy and to be sure, has been donated to God knows who.
Father Antonio Panaro, who earned the nickname " destroyer of Villa Park "by the treatment he gave to the Church of San José del Talar, his former parish, also gave the few images that remained in the Chapel. The building, which was previously kept by the faithful out of their own pockets in perfect condition, is already showing signs of deterioration due no maintenance.
But that's not the major damage, one must see the frustration and mortal sadness of many hearts, to know how far the iniquity of these people has gone. One must see the dismay of many young people who fail to understand how they are punished for doing good. We must prevent their disappointment from killing their faith. You have to explain the unexplainable to neighbors, even those who did not habitually attend usually do not understand how the Church herself is fought. How to explain the dreadful schism that divides it into the factions, and unquenchable hatred distilled by progressivism toward Tradition!
The estimates, which the following words were made last year from this blog , have been met with a vengeance:
" There will be no more bell calling over the rooftops for Mass, nor will one hear the warm harmony of Gregorian chant from the voices of the faithful who filled the small room, the soft flickering light of the candles will result in the gloom of the windows; scrolls of ascending incense taken by the angel that leads to heaven's altar to the Divine Victim, will be replaced by the thin air, moist closed and empty places ... "
From here, we ask our readers to pray for the early opening of the Sacred Heart Chapel (which would be a miracle itself), while we honor recalling the moment when, after many years, briefly shone a solemn Tridentine rite in its ancient walls.
Tridentine Mass held on October 14, 2007
That afternoon the Cardinal Bergoglio suspended the celebration scheduled for October 28, 2007, Solemnity of Christ the King.
In November of that year, the then pastor informed the congregation that they could not continue the celebrations by order of the Archbishop of Buenos Aires. A Ban that continues to this day.
