Liturgy: Passion Sunday – They Took up Stones to Cast at Him

“We are not unaware,” says St. Leo, “that among all Christian celebrations the mystery of the Pasch holds the first place. Our manner of living throughout the whole year, by reforming our ways, ought to give us the dispositions for keeping it worthily and in a fitting manner.

Please pray daily this week after your Rosary the Memorare!

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Name the Patron Saint of Snitching … 

From MSN – News…

If there’s one thing that runs to the heart of British culture, it’s being a stickler for rules and “the small print”. Oh, and we love snitching too, apparently.

In news that seems surprising, but then immediately isn’t, a police force says it has had a surge in calls from people reporting their neighbours for “going out for a second run”.

Government lockdown rules allow people to leave their homes to take one form of exercise a day. And Nick Adderley, from Northamptonshire Police [pictured below], has told the BBC that during this overstretched and stressful time his force has received “dozens and dozens” of calls about people allegedly ignoring the order.

Police now have the powers to fine anyone found to be flouting the law. But, to be honest, aren’t there better uses of everyone’s time? Such as dispersing big groups and, you know, dealing with serious crimes?
Nick Adderley
Adderley said:  We are getting calls from people who say ‘I think my neighbour is going out on a second run – I want you to come and arrest them’ We have had dozens and dozens of these calls.

To make matters even more ridiculous, the force has also been getting reports from people whose neighbours are gathering in their back gardens.

We won’t have police officers crashing through garden fences to check the ID of everyone who is there to see whether they live at the house or whether they should be self-isolating.

We wouldn’t want to discourage people from making us aware, but we have to set expectations. If people think we will be descending on these houses with blue lights, then we won’t.

But be under no illusion, we will be using these powers if necessary.

Ash Tuckley, who leads the force’s control room stressed the “need to exercise caution”. Pardon the pun.

One man who’s absolutely not happy about this news is Nigel Farage. He compared the UK to “east Germany” after learning the news that people were calling the police over these matters. 

But sorry Nige, at least this means that Brits are finally taking these regulations more seriously, which is a good thing. Though maybe people should refrain from calling the police unless it’s definitely, 100 per cent necessary.  

Comment:

Can you name any canonised saint who would be likely to call the police to report a neighbour for breaking these temporary rules, set by a secular Government, given that nobody seems to complain about real immorality in UK society?  Only a minority of people actively complain about the murder of unborn babies, and same-sex “marriage” is OK with the majority now, despite the majority in Scotland having voted against it – twice.   Seems that if the secular Government makes the rules, they must be kept – God’s laws, on the other hand, are expendable.   Is Nigel Farage right to argue that “We have become East Germany c.1985 overnight. Next thing children will be encouraged to report on their parents. ” [Twitter]. 

Would you report a neighbour in these circumstances?  Can you name a saint to support doing so?  

Coronavirus: Bishop Schneider on the Ban on All Forms of Public Worship…

Comment: 

The above video address is taken from The Remnant Video platform, where we read: Bishop Athanasius Schneider grew up under Soviet tyranny and so quite obviously knows of what he speaks. He also knows how to survive and keep the Faith, and it is for this reason that we’re happy to offer this hopeful video message at this particular moment of uncertainty.

God has not abandoned us. God has not abandoned His Church. There is a worldwide brotherhood of faithful Catholics—subjects of Christ the King, children of the Queen of Heaven—and we are all in this together, united in the old Faith.  Remnant Comment Ends.

In the comments, underneath the video address, one blogger writes: He is right! This has been a globally planned event. This is NOT the plague. This wholly disproportionate reaction has garnered an unprecedented global cooperation the likes of which has never been seen before in the entire history of mankind — discouraging daily human interaction and contact, shutting down schools and businesses, bringing the world economy almost to a standstill . When have the nations of the world ever cooperated to enact the same rules and measures that results in exerting control over most of the global population! It is all spun in such a positive manner. It is because all of our govts care about us and about saving lives.
Even in the sparsely populated area of Patagonia at the bottom of the world the border agents were in hazmat suits, stopping the few cars on the little dirt road that served as a border crossing between Chile and Argentina!  I want to see it as a good thing but an ominous sense of foreboding keeps getting in the way of that. I have always been a bit too gullible, but even I cannot swallow all these govts doing all of this for our own good because they care so much about us…please...

Yet, Bishop Schneider insists…

Well – is Bishop Schneider correct?  Do you agree that this trial will bring us greater spiritual benefit than if we had not experienced it?

Vatican: Only Obstacle to the New World Order is… Donald Trump! 

American economist and population control advocate Jeffrey Sachs launches a scathing attack on the Trump administration, saying it is a bullying threat to multilateralism. Sachs, who has a record of supporting abortion and contraception as a means of population control, was the keynote speaker at the conference on “New Forms of Solidarity” at the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences in the Vatican Gardens, Feb. 5, 2020.  See: https://www.ncregister.com/blog/edwar…

Comment:

A couple of comments from underneath the video on YouTube…

He says “the US has taken tremendous, disastrous cuts in corporate taxation which is blowing up the worldwide taxation on companies.” Again, what a buffoon intending only to mislead for political and personal gain. The US had some of the HIGHEST corporate tax rates in the world before the tax cuts, and now falls in the lower mid range.

And…

The lies about China competing on merit turned my stomach. I work in hi-tech and the theft of our IP from China is unprecedented. To run a website there you have to get a number from their military, have a 51% partner, host it there, filter out everything they censor, for it to be viable. This just makes me sick to see him smugly maligning our country. Seriously! Sure the multi-lateral proponents are sore about their inability to continue to loot our country. Last I checked Mr. Sach’s goals were contrary to Catholic belief. What is the end game here for our Church.

And, finally…

See ya in 2020 Jeffrey when you will still be preaching doom and gloom…
