Hello my friends!!
A question on a couple of other matters. I remember, once, while attending the SSPX chapel, the priest thought it was bad to move the Feats of Christ the King, the way it has been arranged in the new calendar. He thought it fine to move the feast of a saint but that moving first class feasts of eithr Our Lord or Our Lady was taboo. Also, what are your thoughts on the subject of funeral Masses as they exist now (I believe white vestments are worn) as opposed to the old Requiem Masses with the wearing of black. As always, I welcome all of your knowledge on these matters.

The Splendor of the Church

[Hello my friends!!]

HELLO TERRY. NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN.

[A question on a couple of other matters. I remember, once, while attending the SSPX chapel, the priest thought it was bad to move the Feats of Christ the King, the way it has been arranged in the new calendar.]

WELL, THAT CONCERN OF SSPX IS PART OF THEIR NARROW-MINDEDNESS AND LACK OF DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF THE HISTORY OF LITURGY.

REMEMBER WHEN THE POPE DECIDED TO REPLACE THE JULIAN CALENDAR WITH THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR THE DATES OF FEASTS ALSO CHANGED A LOT. JUST LIKE THE SSPX, SOME EASTERN GROUPS LED BY THE MONKS OF MT. ATHOS REFUSED STRONGLY TO OBEY THE POPE. SO THAT UNTIL NOW THEY ARE USING THE JULIAN CALENDAR WITH DIFFERENT DATES FOR CHRISTMAS AND OTHER FEASTS.

THE SSPX ACTUALLY IMITATES THE REBELLIOUSNESS OF THESE GROUPS. THEY ARE LIKE THOSE WHO REFUSE TO OBEY THE POPE ON MATTER OF THE CALENDAR AND THE MOVING OF DATES. BY THEIR REBELLIOUSNESS THEY REVEAL THEIR BEING NARROWMINDED AND PRIDE AGAINST THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH THROUGH THE PRACTICAL DECISIONS OF THE POPES. DON’T BE LIKE THEM.

[He thought it fine to move the feast of a saint but that moving first class feasts of eithr Our Lord or Our Lady was taboo.]

THAT MENTALITY IS A MANIFESTATION OF LITURGICAL STUPIDITY AND BASIC IGNORANCE OF THE LITURGICAL TRADITION OF THE CHURCH. HA HA HA… FIRST AND FOREMOST THE SSPX HAS FORGOTTEN THAT THE GREATEST FEAST OF ALL, THE HOLIEST FEAST OF THE CHURCH IS “THE RESURRECTION”… YET THE FEAST OF THE RESURRECTION CHANGES EVERY YEAR BASED ON THE LUNAR MOVEMENT. HA HA HA ISN’T IT? THE ORTHODOX AND THE CATHOLIC SCHOLARS ARE TRYING HARD TO UNIFY AND FIX THE DATE OF EASTER SUNDAY BUT TO NO AVAIL.

IF THE SOLEMNITY OF THE LORD’S RESURRECTION CHANGES BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH THEN THE SAME CHURCH HAS THE AUTHORITY TO MOVE THE FEAST OR SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST THE KING. WELL, IN FACT THE CHURCH CELEBRATES THE SOLEMNITY OF THE LORD’S NATIVITY ON DECEMBER 25 BUT AT THE SAME TIME SHE PERMITS THE EASTERN CATHOLICS TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ON LATER DATE IN JANUARY FOLLOWING THE JULIAN CALENDAR. HA HA HA…  IS THAT TABOO? NO NO NO… NADA, NUNCA, NIENTE… NEVER EVER… IN RUSSIAN: NYET, NYET. HA HA HA…

ALSO, IF THE SOLEMNITY OF RESURRECTION IS MOVING SO ALSO THE GREAT SOLEMNITIES OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD [PALM SUNDAY], THE CHRISM MASS AND THE MASS OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST ON MAUNDY THURSDAY AND THE ADORATION OF THE CROSS ON GOOD FRIDAY THEN THE EASTER VIGIL. ALL OF THEM ARE MOVING DUE TO THE LUNAR MOVEMENT NEAREST TO THE FULL MOON FOR EASTER.

ONCE AGAIN TERRY THIS ISSUE IS PART OF THE EXERCISE OF THE POPE OF THE POWER TO BIND AND TO LOOSE GIVEN BY JESUS TO ST. PETER IN Mt 16:18-19 WHICH AT THIS TIME YOU SHOULD KNOW BY MIND AND HEART. UNFORTUNATELY, THE SSPX HAS A VERY SHALLOW AND DEFECTIVE UNDERSTANDING OF Mt 16:18-19 BECAUSE THEY ARE POPELESS. HA HA HA…

CONCERNING THE TRANSFER OF THE FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING, IT IS BUT FITTING AND THEOLOGICALLY AND BIBLICALLY CORRECT THAT THE POPE PUT IT AT THE END OF THE LITURGICAL CALENDAR  IN THE FINAL SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME BEFORE ADVENT WHICH IN TURN BEGINS THE LITURGICAL CALENDAR. IN ORDER TO SHOW THAT AT THE END OF TIME CHRIST WILL REIGN AS THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.

THAT IS VERY BIBLICAL. THAT IS TAKEN FROM THE THEOLOGY OF ST. PAUL THAT AT THE END CHRIST WILL CONQUER EVERYTHING AND THEN SUBMIT EVERYTHING TO THE FATHER:

1 Cor 15:25-28 [DRB]  For he must reign, until he hath put all his enemies under his feet. 26  And the enemy, death, shall be destroyed last: For he hath put all things under his feet. And whereas he saith: 27  All things are put under him; undoubtedly, he is excepted, who put all things under him. 28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then the Son also himself shall be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 

CHRIST’S FULL REIGN AS KING OVER ALL SHALL BE MANIFESTED AT THE END OF TIME WHEN HE WILL DESTROY SATAN BY DESTROYING DEATH. CHRIST WILL CONQUER ALL THINGS THEN AFTER VANQUISHING EVIL AND WILL OFFER TO THE FATHER THE ENTIRE CREATION AT LAST FREE FROM SIN AND FROM EVIL.

THE THEOLOGY OF ST. PAUL CONCERNING THE APOCALYPTIC REIGN OF CHRIST THE KING IS SUPPORTED BY ST. JOHN THE APOSTLE AND EVANGELIST IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION:

Rev 19:11-16 [DRB]  And I saw heaven opened: and behold a white horse. And he that sat upon him was called faithful and true: and with justice doth he judge and fight. 12  And his eyes were as a flame of fire: and on his head were many diadems. And he had a name written, which no man knoweth but himself. 13  And he was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood. And his name is called: THE WORD OF GOD. 14  And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15  And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp two-edged sword, that with it he may strike the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16  And he hath on his garment and on his thigh written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 

ST. JOHN PRESENTED CHRIST AS KING OF KINGS AT THE FINAL BATTLE OR ARMAGEDDON WHEREIN HE WILL DEFEAT FOR GOOD ALL THE FORCES OF EVIL. SO THE DECISION TO PUT THE SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST THE KING AT THE END OF LITURGICAL CALENDAR OR THE FINAL SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME IS BIBLICALLY FITTING. THAT IS FOUNDED ON PAULINE AND JOHANNINE APOSTOLIC TRADITION OF THE CHURCH.

SINCE THE SSPX OPPOSES IT THEN IT SHOWS THEIR IGNORANCE OF THE BIBLICAL TRADITION OF THE CHURCH CONCERNING THE APOCALYPTIC REIGN OF CHRIST THE KING BASED ON PAULINE AND JOHANNINE TRADITION. SO MUCH FOR THESE FAKE TRADITIONALISTS. HA HA HA… ACTUALLY IT IS NOT ONLY IN PAULINE AND JOHANNINE TRADITION BUT ALSO IN MATTHEAN TRADITION: “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:18). JESUS DECLARED HIS KINGSHIP AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW. POPE PAUL VI TRULY MADE THE RIGHT DECISION BASED ON SACRED TRADITION IN PUTTING THAT SOLEMNITY AT THE FINAL SUNDAY OF THE LITURGICAL CALENDAR:

In his motu proprio Mysterii Paschalis of 1969, Bl. Pope Paul VI amended the title of the Feast to “D. N. Iesu Christi universorum Regis” (Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe). He also moved it to the new date of the final Sunday of the liturgical year, before the commencement of a new liturgical year on the First Sunday of Advent (the earliest date for which is 27 November). Through this choice of date “the eschatological importance of this Sunday is made clearer”.[6] He assigned to it the highest rank of “solemnity”.[7] WIKIPEDIA

ACTUALLY BEFORE BLESSED POPE PAUL VI THE FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING WAS LESSER IN IMPORTANCE BUT POPE PAUL VI MADE IT INTO ONE OF THE HIGHEST FEASTS GIVING IT THE RANK OF SOLEMNITY. BEFORE HIM ST. JOHN XXIII MADE IT A FEAST OF A FIRST CLASS. WE HAVE SO MUCH TO THANK FOR TO THESE TWO VATICAN II SAINTS: ST. JOHN XXIII AND BLESSED [ST.] PAUL VI.
