Anti-TLM:s beware!

Council of Trent, 22nd session

Canon 9.
If anyone says
  • that the rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the canon and the words of consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; 
  • or that the mass ought to be celebrated in the vernacular tongue only;[28] 
  • or that water ought not to be mixed with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice because it is contrary to the institution of Christ,[29] 
let him be anathema.

I wonder how many problems could be solved by just looking through the canons of the  Councils...

Weekday Mass, ordinary form

Difference from last picture?
Bigger altar cross, higher candlesticks, roman chasuble and, I might add, in its proper places, biretta.
None of this is new, of course, except for the altar cross, which actually is a candlestick with a short altar cross on top of it. The roman chasuble is used regularly, this priest wears the biretta every once in a while and the high candlesticks are used on Sundays.
So far it has only been this priest that's used a standing cross on the altar, high or low.

B. Williamsson said something I agree with

Fond the following quote here

And speaking of Bishop Williamson [half-crazy SSPX bishop], I recently read that he said (along the lines of the rampant anti-God, pro-homosexual "lifestyle" that's ever so prevalent in Western culture): "if The Lord doesn't do something soon about this, He's going to owe Sodom and Gomorrah an apology."


I must underscore that I do not agree with bishop Williamson in general, and that I only agree with this statement insofar as it is an observation of the ungodly lifestyle of most of modern Western society. Williamson is, though, an idiot Holocaust denyer and a general loon. But even the worst kokoos say thinks that can make you nod.
