Vigano!

When Traditian Order member and speaker of the truth Father Edwin Palka’s words stop being absolutely vital to hear and learn from we will stop running his bulletin posts on the page. Alas that time has not yet come.


From the Pastor: Vigano!
Bulletin article, September 2, 2018

Last Saturday evening news broke regarding a statement the former Papal Nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Vigano, was releasing. I was extremely grateful that I had already announced that I was going to be preaching a series of explanatory sermons on the Traditional Latin Mass.

Whew! I certainly didn’t want to have to jump right back into the quagmire of filth which so many our bishops have been complicit in producing and covering up. It was certainly a nice surprise that the whistleblower was such a high-ranking Churchman since his arguments would have to be given at least a look-see before labeling him a kook.

Penance For The Restoration

breadIn the wake of the great scandals rocking the Church in recent weeks, the Traditian Order hereby calls on its members and supporters to voluntarily adopt the traditional penitential practices of the Church, offering any sacrifice this entails for the restoration of Holy Mother Church.

The traditional rules of fasting and abstinence under the 1962 liturgical calendar, as outlined in Canons 1250-1254 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law, are as follows.  Our Upcoming Events on the right-hand sidebar of our page will note the holidays listed below as they arise.

1.   Abstinence is obligatory on all Fridays, except on Holy Days of Obligation outside of Lent.  Fasting and complete abstinence are obligatory on the following days:

  • Ash Wednesday
  • Fridays and Saturdays in Lent
  • Good Friday
  • Holy Saturday
  • Ember Days
  • Vigil of Pentecost
  • Vigil of Christmas
  • Fasting and partial abstinence are obligatory on all other weekdays of Lent (i.e., Monday through Thursday—Fridays are always complete abstinence); this means that meat can be eaten at the principal meal on these days.
  • Sundays throughout the year or on a Holy Day of Obligation outside of Lent cancels the fasting and/or abstinence of any day.
  • If a fast-day Vigil falls on Sunday, the fasting and abstinence associated with the Vigil are not anticipated on the Saturday, but dropped altogether for that year.
  • In 1931, Pope Pius XII gave an indult to the American bishops allowing them to dispense with Abstinence on any penitential day that was a civic holiday and on the Friday that followed Thanksgiving Day. (Canon Law Digest, vol. 1.)
  • Moreover, in the United States liquids, including milk and fruit juices, may be taken at any time on a day of fast, but “other works of charity, piety, and prayer for the pope should be substituted” to compensate for this relaxation.

2.   What can be eaten?

  • The law of abstinence forbade the eating of flesh meat and of broth made of meat, but did not exclude the use of eggs, dairy products, or seasonings made from the fat of animals.
  • The law of fasting prescribed that only one full meal a day was taken with two smaller meals that did not equal the main one.
  • As to the kind of food and the amount that might be taken, the approved customs of the place were to be observed. It was not forbidden to eat both flesh meat and fish at the same meal, nor to interchange the midday and evening meals.

 

From The Pastor’s Mother

motherThe Traditian Order has been running the bulletin posts of its member and Roman Catholic Priest Father Edwin Palka for several weeks.  He has displayed noteworthy courage and holiness in detailing a priest’s point of view in the recent and ongoing scandals of the Roman Catholic Church and he is an inspiration to those who know him.  We ask that you pray for him.

While we probably cannot continue to post one priest’s bulletin posts forever, this week’s was again particularly poignant and worthy.  This week’s was written by his mother.

From the Pastor’s Mother: A Mother’s Point of View
Bulletin article, August 26, 2018.

Today I let my mother tell a story about priests, a bishop and a Cardinal the family encountered when my brother, sisters and I were young and new to Florida.

Our family consisted of Mom, Dad, and 4 children. In 1974 we moved to Florida to follow our dream of getting out of the cold Michigan weather. We rented a home, enrolled the kids in school, and found the nearest Catholic Church. I volunteered for CCD and was asked to teach the Confirmation class. Within 3 weeks after starting the pastor asked to lie to the parents and students about how and why the requirements and costs of the program suddenly changed. I was shocked.

A priest had never asked me to lie. I told him that he could have his books back and find someone who was willing to lie for him. We continued going to Mass there and were encouraged to attend the parish New Year’s dance. At the party, the pastor came with his girlfriend. It was very obvious there was more going on than friendship.

The Day of the Patron

PiuxXpatronAugust 21 is the day on the modern Church calendar set aside to recognize the great Pope Saint Pius X.  While most moderns recognize him only as a few of the initials in the curious “SSPX” group, in fact he is a pope for the whole Church.

Pope St. Pius X recognized and battled modernism, the heresy of our day, fighting it in the Church.  Had he prevailed, we almost certainly would not be fighting the battles we must today.

While it is a Monday, still you owe it to yourself to spend some time researching this great man, and understanding what he tried to do for you so all of this would not happen.

From The Pastor: One Proposed Solution

Below is the most recent bulletin article of Fr. Edwin Palka, found in the Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida’s bulletin of August 19, 2018 and shared by Father in a Facebook post on his page the day before. Fr. Palka is the pastor at the main Traditional Latin Mass parish in the Diocese of St. Petersburg and also a member of the Traditian Order. His last three weeks of columns have caught national attention due to his bravery in frankly discussing the scandals in the Church.

From the Pastor: One Proposed Solution
Bulletin article, August 19,  2018

Finally. I am done. At least for now! I am tired of writing about active homosexual and homosexual activist (AH/HA – aha! Now you get it!) priests and bishops. I thought it was important for people to have their eyes opened to this sick reality, but exposing this “hidden in plain sight” evil is not the goal. Eradicating it is. The current state of the Church can be depressing, even capable of bringing about spiritual despair. But it need not be. There is always hope. A well founded hope, in fact.

The Light of Christ will conquer the darkness. The Immaculate Heart will triumph. We know that. But what can we do? First and foremost, we must pray and fast. “Oh, no, Father, not that old line!” Yes. We are battling demonic Antichrists when facing men delighting in homosexual desires and actions and all that emanates from them. Some kinds of demons can only be cast out by prayer and fasting according to Our Lord’s explanation in Mt. 17:21 in every Bible except our bishops’ own New American Bible. Interestingly, in the next verse He once again tells his apostles that He will be betrayed (by Bishop Judas Iscariot). If you have any doubts as to the demonic activity of the AH/HAs, for the love of God read Richard Sipe’s (+RIP) works (awrsipe.com) and the Pennsylvania grand jury report, read them. They do not detail “icky” stuff; they detail demonic activity.

The Return of Hell

One look at these monstrous men is to know the endless pride in them.  They are not sorry, these leaders of the lavender mafia.  They are modernists, they do not fear the supernatural, they barely believe in it.  They came into the Church and their touch was rot, evil, unapologetic, vile.  They built a culture of lies, denial, conspiracy, they saw new seminarians as prey, young children as sexual objects.  There is no word for this but evil.

And as much as they have been turning tradition on its head, the truth of tradition is not influenced by convincing wording, it is not undone by a vote of the majority, it is truth and it is unassailable forever.  And these monsters will know this, because many seem too prideful to seek forgiveness, their eyes are steely walls, their souls hollow and maligned, twisting with the wind behind their emotionless facade.  They have denied that their sins are sins for too long.

And they will know Hell.  The unquenchable fire that Jesus Christ spoke about.  The never-ending agony that turning from God and going in the other direction for a lifetime earns you.  The justice that this world may never fully deliver, it will be delivered.

That voice in your head, dear bishop, honored cardinal, lifelong priest, you know who you are, and you know the voice, the one that told you that everything you did was fine and good.  The one that whispered to you to perform the hideous acts you performed, to punish the innocent the way you did, to sin and convince yourself and others that it was not sin.  That voice was not God, that voice was the very prince of darkness, or one of his minions, such as yourself, and he awaits you in the supernatural afterlife you never quite believed in.

You have a fleeting chance to find true remorse, to tell all of the truth and confess all of your sins.  You are probably too prideful, and if so you will burn and your name will be counted among the most vile and putrid names of human history.  But if you repent, turn on the other minions of darkness, cast a light on all of it, restore what you have torn down, believe what you have never really believed, and step down you may have hope.

But if you do not, you will burn in the fires of hell forever, and will have an eternity to learn the painful lesson that truth does exist, sin does corrupt, and judgment does come, whether you like it or not.
