"Chills, Fever, Mass & CitiField With Kudos To Jackie Robinson"

It was damp & cool in Queens, these past 2 days, so I caught a brutal chill & went to bed:

I also had a bit of a fever, causing me to feel weak, so it was time for a rest, hence a lot of bed time, but was determined to get to the Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass;

The latest Mass in the area is at Nativity B V M in Ozone Park, as this is something I've known for awhile;

It was nice. For those readers who're Catholic, do you remember when the Tabernacle was at the Center of The Altar & not off to the side?

It was at the CENTER there, hence it was a start of a nice Mass;

It was a Youth Mass, complete with Guitars & Flutes;

There was one Liturgical Problem, when an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, was at The Tabernacle, storing away the Eucharist. Only a priest or deacon may do that in accordance with Church Law;

As I was to learn about the Jehova's Witnesses, they do NOT preach Christ Crucified, hence they are NOT Christians in any way, shape or form;

& now Citi Field:
It's the NY Mets new ball park, on the lines of a modern day Ebbett's Field in Brooklyn, only in Queens, next to the current site of Shea Stadium, in Corona, Queens;

45K Seats & Great Views will be the theme, with an Ebbett's Field Style Rotunda at the entrance;

The NY Post(News Corp, owner of FOX Television), tried everything in its' power, unto the point of implying racism, in the Mets Decision, not to name the ballpark, sponsor-free, in honor of Jackie Robinson;

The Mets are keeping Jackie's Legacy alive;
Their names are Omar Minaya & Willie Randolph;
The Rotunda @ the Entrance to CitiField is in honor of the Man who broke Baseball's Colour line, Jackie Robinson,
with contributions being made to the Jackie Robinson Foundation, hence Fred & Company are keeping in line with the Ebbett's Field Tradition;
Will Billie Jean King & Bill O'Reilly, mind their business?
Thanks, because it takes money to do it;

This is while News Corporation is a marketing partner of the NY Yankees;
Mind your business, Mr Murdoch, as News Corp once owned the LA Dodgers & lost $76M one year on that team. Fred Wilpon should listen to you Brain Surgeons in running a baseball team?

Freddie? I'm proud of you in not giving into "The Kangaroo";
Keep up the good work;

Do you recall going to mass prior to Vatican II? Latin mass, priest with back to you much of the time, etc.?

I think some changes were for the better, some for the worse. As my Dad used to opine, when the mass was in Latin, you could go anywhere in the world and follow along, but now that it's in local language...

I recall the Mass in Latin, to a certain extent & that there was a 3 Hour Fast before the Eucharist, allowing ONLY for water & Medicine, for consumption:

Then, in November, 1964, came the Changes which still had Latin at The Consecration & Offertory, but most prayers were in English;

The Priest with his back to us, was facing East, towards Nazareth, the Birthplace of The Christ;

With the changes came the 1 hour fast prior to receiving The Eucharist.

I received my 1st Communion in Brooklyn, in 1962, in the 1st Grade, which is UNHEARD of in these days, as well as instructed in the various state of sins:

Today, one might only hear about Mortal Sin, in the 8th Grade;

Today's Average Catholic can easily fall prey to cults or Fundamentalists.

Oh, BTW, the Rotunda & the Contributions to the Jackie Robinson Foundation, will come from The Mets & CitiGroup:

Take THAT, Rupert!
