Why the details Matter

The difference between resume and résumé is a matter of accent marks. Those accent marks change the the definition of the word from a paper to contnue.

Eg: Let us take a look at the word CATHOLIC…..

1. Let us say that you take the Tabernacle out of the Church. What does this do? You’ve taken away the Tabernacle, an expession of Adoration, as well as Christ (i.e. You eliminate the letters C, A and T

Thus the word becomes: HOLIC

2. Let us say now that you take Mary, and denounce her Perptual Virginity. You thus take away he I, because no longer do you have Mary as the Immaculate Virgin. By doing this you also take away the L, since she is no longer the Hand Maid of the Lord, just merely a used Lady

This changes the word to HOC

3. Let us say that we start to invent our own liturgies. It becomes less about God and more about our own self interests. and entertainment. It becomes about the personality of the priest, and not about the worship due to God.

Thus the word becomes C

4. Now let’s take everything that’s identified us as Catholics away. The altar rails, the mantila’s, the genuflections, the incesne, the Latin Language. What do you get?

….

Yes, the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church. Every little detail affects what we belive as Catholics. That extra genuflection could be the difference between a vocation to the priesthood, or life in sexual immorality. That woman dressed modestly in Church could be the difference between a vocation to marriage or absolutely no respect for the Mass. If you don’t believe me, all you need to do is look around you. In how many Churches has Jesus been banished to the side, and people don’t even give genuflection to Him physically present at the Sacrament of the Altar? In how many Churches do you see immodest dress from the women, and the guys looking at them like objects.? In how many Churches do you see people not even understanding the actions that are taking place at the altar? It is not a coincidence that vocations have decreased since the NO Mass. I’m not saying that the NO Msss is invalid, as it is totally valid. and can be edifying when done correctly. Everything from the smallest Host to the words of the priest can change everything. If you change one thing, you then can have the lisence to change everything. My dear friends, Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, the Law of Prayer affects the Law of Belief. The details from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass Matter, whether you want to admit it or not. We believe that the Trinity is physically present at the altar, let us start showing it n the things that we do, and caring for everything in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! Amen!
