Pelosi: Helps Us Clarify Doctrinal ‘Issues’

Wonders never cease, at least not in the mind of a dissenter, in this case an ‘ardent practicing Catholic’. In case you were wondering, on Sunday, August 24th (probably while you were at Mass), Speaker Pelosi adorned herself with the mantle of two Doctors of the Church, St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to ‘clarify’ for the Magisterium of the Church, when life actually begins…

CCC 2089:
Incredulity is the neglect of revealed truth or the willful refusal to assent to it. “Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.”

TLM Time Change at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

St. Cecilia at the Organ by Carlino Dolci

In i order to guarantee we always have a priest available to offer the Extraordinary Form, it has become necessary to move the Sunday Mass time from 5 pm to 3 pm. This change takes effect on Sunday, August 24th. Thanks to Father Christopher Roberts for dedicating himself to the St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community and its success. Father Roberts will now become our regular priest.

In other news, we have been hard at work hiring a permanent organist and choir director. You might have noticed some new faces at the keyboard for the last three weeks. These are AGO organists and choir directors from around the area who have applied for the position. Two additional organist will audition on August 24th, and August 31st. Soon after the last audition, we will be able to begin regular rehearsals in order to make the weekly Mass a Sung Mass. If you have a comment on any of the performance of one particular organist, please let any Una Voce member know.

Prayerful Protest at Bill Maher’s Gig in Indy

March of Reparation set for August 16

Prayerful event to coincide with local appearance by anti-Catholic ‘comedian’
By Dr. Timothy Thunell, DVM

 One of the most anti-Catholic personalities in the world today, Bill Maher, will be performing at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis on Saturday, Aug. 16, at 8 p.m. A self-proclaimed “politically astute comedian,” Maher’s shows on television and stage – and soon to be at movie theaters – are notorious for their vulgar vitriol directed at all religion, most especially the Roman Catholic Church.

To counteract Maher’s offensive brand of comedy, local Catholic laity are organizing a March of Reparation, along with a Mass for the Defense of the Church, for Aug. 16. Catholics are being asked to turn out in large numbers to pray the rosary, sing hymns and make other acts of public prayer and reparation. It is especially hoped that large numbers of Catholics will be present outside the theater before and after the show.

The Solemn High Votive Mass for the Defense of the Church will be at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Indianapolis at 6:00 pm, with the March immediately following. The celebrant, Fr. Dennis Duvelius, will be joined at the altar by Fr. Gerard Saguto and Fr. David Phillipson.

Anyone not familiar with Maher’s statements on the Catholic Church would likely be shocked by much of what he has said, repeatedly, throughout his career. A lengthy list of his quotes – almost all of which are too obscene to be printed here – has been documented by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Here is one of the few “clean” attacks he made on April 11, 2008, on the HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher:

“I’d like to tip off law enforcement to an even larger child-abusing religious cult. Its leader also has a compound. And this guy not only operates outside the bounds of the law, but he used to be a Nazi and he wears funny hats. That’s right. The pope is coming to America this week, and, ladies, he’s single! … If you have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion, they call you ‘pope'” (source: transcript provided by Real Time with Bill Maher).

All Catholics on earth are considered to be members of the Church Militant, engaged in battle with the world, the flesh and the devil. The March of Reparation is a concrete, visible way to defend our Faith and stand up for all that we believe.

Organizers are asking participants in the March of Reparation to set a good example for others by displaying Christian modesty in their attire: no shorts, tight clothing, short skirts, no sleeveless, backless or cutoff tops, or other immodest clothing.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing”

Attributed to Edmund Burke (1729 -1797) was an Anglo-Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher who served for many years in the British House of Commons as a member of the Whig party. He is mainly remembered for his support of the American colonies in the dispute with King George III and Britain that led to the American Revolution and for his strong opposition to the French Revolution. The latter made Burke one of the leading figures within the conservative faction of the Whig party (which he dubbed the “Old Whigs”), in opposition to the pro-French-Revolution “New Whigs”, led by Charles James Fox. Burke also published a philosophical work where he attempted to define emotions and passions, and how they are triggered in a person. Burke worked on aesthetics and founded the Annual Register, a political review. He is often regarded by conservatives as the philosophical founder of Anglo-American conservatism.
