As You Know It's Cold & Time To Think Fenway Park & Spring

Sunday, April 20th @ 1:35PM, with Texas & Saturday, May 17th @ 3:55PM-ET. I'll be at that Game in May to avoid Mets Skanks @ The Toilet, as well as FOX Coverage of Red Sox-Brewers, with a chance to let Eric Gag-me, really have it for making this race a little too close for comfort, not to mention sheer Mc Carver Mockery:

The NY Mets, in their quest to draw 4.7Million Fans to the Last Season in The Ballpark in The Middle Of NOWHERE(Shea Stadium), gave me a call. I'll take a small package with them;

I think I may just skip "The Toilet", unless Red Sox Tickets open up on 4th Of July Weekend in The Bronx;

A contingent of Red Sox Regulars from Professor Thom's may be @ The Last Game in "The Toilet"(AKA Yankee Stadium), only hanging around outside. You think we'd go to "The Toilet" for a ball game? A Toilet is for going to the bathroom, ONLY;

The One Person Who Roger Clemens Can't Strike Out Is VERITAS

He's never struck that batter out and NEVER WILL, Either:

Who & What Is VERITAS?

Pontius Pilate asked THAT Question of The Christ, during The Passiontide;

Roger can claim he used Lidocaine & Vitamin B12 all the live long day, but the facts do not match up;

VERITAS will hit Roger REALLY Hard;

Veritas-Latin for Truth;

The Passing Of William F Buckley Jr-Requiscant In Pacem

He passed away in his Study @ age 82, earlier today, in CT:
At Age 29, in 1955, he founded The National Review Magazine, which had a Classical Liberal(What We Call Conservative)Tone and never sounded jingoistic, but rather, intellectual in the Magazine's Approach:

He wrote "God And Man At Yale" and other works;

I never forgot a certain discussion on The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass in the Discussion of whether it belonged in Latin or in The Native Tongue;

When I was younger, when the subject was broached by William Buckley, on his Television Show, "Firing Line", he favored it in Latin, as we did have English Translation on the side;

I think now, he foresaw the various Liturgical Abuses with Mass in The Vulgar Tongue. I may not have agreed with his assesment at the Age of 12, but with experience over the years with "Michael Row The Boat Ashore", a "Hymn" more-attuned to a Greenwich Village Coffee House than at Mass & even worse Liturgical "Music", much of it laced with Self-Praise instead of Praising & Pleading with The Almighty Father, and having returned to The Traditional Latin Mass, Mr Buckley had a MOST-VALID Point(Match Point, Mr Buckley);

It was that One Memorable TV Program, which brought back memories, as Mr Buckley was a Man Of Faith, Indeed;

"Well Captain Lidocaine"

Or is Roger Clemens a sheer numbskull? Which pharmacutical combos were you using on the night of Mike Piazza's Beaning and the night of the broken bat? It sure wasn't Lidocaine, because that's only a local painkiller. And now about that party at Canseco's house, it could cause Congressional Action in the form of a referal to the D O J for action.

Tito For 3 More Years With Options

Mr Francona has been given a contract extension through 2011 with options for '12 & '13. So far, he's the best manager in Red Sox History. NONE BETTER than Tito Francona! NONE! MIKE-RSN-NYCQ


It's That Time Of Year, Again

The 4th Annual "MLB On FOX" Send-Up is being penned & will be more of a laugh riot, than in the other years, with live on-screen kisses & other off the wall stuff, never before imagined. Think "The Producers", when you read it. It'll be THAT ZANY. Mike-RSN-NYCQ.


"It Belongs There"

The Tabernacle of The Lord was moved to the Centre of The Altar @ St Margaret's Church. This is a Beautiful Sight To See:

The Story of The Samaritan Woman, who looked for the "Living Water" Of Christ, who had 5 Prior Husbands, was preached yesterday;

The Priest @ this Novus Ordo Mass, also incensed the Altar, which is just so right to do, as prayers rise up to God, so sweetly;

The Ordinary Rite of The Mass, can be so-reverently Offered;

The Priest is also one who offers the Traditional Latin Mass @ St John's Cemetery Chapel on Sundays;

His Homilies are memorable;

Fr Joseph F Wilson, who I have googled numerous times, was the Priest, who Offered The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass;

A Picture Is Worth Several Words-Like Roger Lied

I listened to "Boomer & Carton" on WFAN, this morning & the Latest Evidence that Roger Clemens is a LIAR, came in the form of an 11 Year Old Boy , who has a photo of Roger Clemens, being at the 1998 Party with Jose'(Juiced) Canseco, which Roger Denies:

How long before the photo hits the web?

Let me guess, Roger-you weren't @ Yankee Stadium when you BEANED Mike Piazza, on July 8th, 2000?




One Never Fully-Knows From Day To Day What's Next

1st, Red Sox Nation rallies around Kaylee in AZ, in the Fight of her life & for her life. We were joined by the Traditionalist Catholic Bloggers(Of which I'm also one of them)in prayers for Kaylee:

Then, the Mom of one of the members of Msgr Sherman Council Knights of Columbus #5103, died yesterday morning. The Member, a Former Mason, had his hands full with this mess, ever since Saturday, December 15th, '07, when his mom with an abdominal muscle tear, bled & was taken to LI Jewish Hospital, & given the wrong blood in a blood transfusion. Cancer of The Lungs was discovered in his Mom & she passed on yesterday. I handled the Telephone Relays to the Grand Knight & One NY State Council Official, as well as 4th Degree Notifications;

In my memories of the Red Sox, came an article from April, '07, on the Order of Nuns, Sisters Of Charity-Halifax, many of whom are from both Nova Scotia & The Boston Area, especially Dorcester. The Niece of One Of my nuns, a HUGE SOX Fan, especially of the 1967 "Impossible Dream Team", contacted my blog. Correspondence has begun;

& someone took his 2nd Degree in the K of C Order, identifying himself to me as the Brother of one of my St Agnes HS Classmates. Yes, yesterday was One For The Books;

Like Mets Radio Play By Play Man, Howie Rose always says after a Victory, this day I'll really "Put It In The Books";

I Was Watching FOX Sports With Rosenthal

In fact I was watching online:

FOX is the Network which gives Baseball its' Big Money;

FOX Sports was attempting to whitewash the whole Clemens Affair;

All I know is that McNamee was backed up by others testimonies;

& that retired NYPD Officer, who explained the use of Lidocaine & a Steroid on his ankle-I believe the Retired Officer;

Because, I sure don't believe Roger;

Or his Whitewashers @ FOX Sports;

The "Yankees-Centric" Ones, who blab on unceasingly about Derek Jeter;

Immediate Changes Occuring When The Mass Was Radically-Changed

ATTENDANCE took something of a drop. So did the # of Masses in a Parish Schedule:

In 1964, there existed at St Sylvester-City Line, Brooklyn, a total of 10 Masses on Sunday, alone, starting at 6:00AM & continuing until the 1:00PM Mass. 8 were in the Church & the 9:00AM Adults Mass was in the School Hall, as well as the other 10:00AM Mass. On Holy Days of Obligation, the Masses ran from 6:00AM to 12:00Noon, in the Church, ONLY. There was no Vigil Mass on The Eve Of The Holy Day, in those days;

It is 2008 & the demographics of that Parish, have changed, with much of the area being Latino & Guyanese-Indian. Currently, the Sunday Mass Schedule is Saturday @ 5:00PM(Vigil), & Sundays @ 8:00AM, 10:00AM & 12:00Noon(Spanish), for a Total of 4 Masses, Offered only in the Church, & sparse crowds, except at 12:00Noon in Spanish;

@ one time, you could set your watch to a Catholic Mass Schedule-this is not the case, at present. That the Total Sunday Mass Schedule @ St Sylvester-City Line, is the size of what the Daily Mass Schedule was in 1962, is astonishing, as on the Daily Mass Schedule, there were Masses Offered at 6:00AM, 7:00AM, 8:00AM & 9:00AM;

By 1970, there was a Saturday Vigil Mass @ 7:30PM, & 7:00AM, 8:00AM, 9:00AM, 10:00AM, 11:00AM & 12:30PM;

From there, it would drop to 6 Masses in 1982. Now there are ONLY 4;

Starting in 1982, the Parish would get a Spanish-Language Mass, despite the still heavily-Italian Population. By 1983, the Area practically changed over the Winter;

One wonders if both a Progressive Pastor, whose vision was of Changing Demographics & the Spanish Language Mass, contributed to the fleeing of much of the area's population, leading to a financially-poorer parish;

In 1966, one could say it was the beginning of the "Era Of Bad Chatechetics", as 1st Graders in that year were switched from the Tried & True Baltimore Catechism, over to Books without an emphasis on Doctrine, which Prior 1st Graders had to learn in order to receive their 1st Holy Communion. Communions in this era, moved into 2nd Grade, instead. The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass, was in English, except for Offertory & Consecration, as per the Missale Romanum of 1965. With less emphasis on Doctrine, there was a corresponding de-emphasis on Sin. By 1967, in September of that year, the 9:00AM Children's Mass was discontinued, with Emphasis on Family Celebration of Mass, together. There was even a "Folk Mass", in '67, or the beginning of the "Era Of Bad Liturgical Music", much of which could be better-suited for sing alongs in coffee houses in Greenwich Village;

The 1960s', by the end of Vatican II, were a mess, as Schoolchildren were led away from learning Doctrine. Eventually, those children grew up & didn't bother with the Mass, from all this Post-council confusion which arose;

The Novus Ordo Mass led to a lot of indifference, & people didn't feel obligated by it at all. The Emphasis was seemingly, on the Populi & NOT on orienting towards God;

The crowd at the 11:00AM Mass was down;

Time For a Return to Doctrine & The Reform of the "Reform" is at hand. & The Traditional Mass is making a huge comeback;

"Communion Should Be Received On The Tongue, NOT In The Hand"

That was the verdict from an Extraordinary Minister Of The Eucharist, as we spoke today. She's a Nurse, from The Emerald Isle, now also known as "The Silicon Isle Of The European Union":

From what she has seen, for instance with various Carribean Women, who take The Consecrated Host & try putting it in a handbag, to take home for some Black Magic Ceremony, or trying to give it to a child who has not attained the age of reason, as this is as a Result of Communion In The Hand;

BTW, she also favors kneeling @ the Altar Rail;

To which I Say "Amen";

& The Most-Prosperous Ireland, has all the faith of a horse. Catholic Churches are EMPTY of Irish. Who's saving The Church in Ireland, are Immigrant Poles. You heard me correctly-Poles, as in P J P II Poles. That's also the case across The Irish Sea in England;

A NYC Cop(Now Retired)On Lidocaine Controversy

He, btw, walks with a cane & has a bad ankle injury:

In his treatment, he had Lidocaine injected into the Injured Area, followed by a MEDICALLY-APPROVED Steroid to that ankle;

Roger is a LIAR;

These Are The Fans From HELL(& I Don't Mean Norway, Either)


To Our NY Yankees Fan Friends

Note-Thanks to Ernie In Andover, MA-Editor Of Fenway Nation


Why Didn't I Think Of It, 1st?

Okay, I shut off the eMac, waited 2 minutes & turned on the machine. I then went to the Apple Website to Downloads & found where to download Mac OS X 10.5.2 Combo Update, bringing the OS up from 10.5.1 Leopard:

Using Software Update, it took me nearly 5 Hours. Downloading from Apple's Site & Installing the Update, only took me 30 Minutes & the machine is purring like a kitten. In doing it the Software Update Way, I actually took an hour nap, hoping things would proceed, quickly, but that proceeded like a Constipated Person on the "Throne", if you get my drift;

Funny, but I've always found Update to be slow-going to Apple's Site is the way to go-faster than a Mac Shot to Clemens' Butt;

& I'm up & Running Again-Sure beats tapping out an article on my Motorola V3 Phone on AT & T, using a phone keypad & the Opera Mini-Browser;



This Is As Torturous As Listening To Dan Burton Calling Roger Clemens A Baseball Titan, Mr Jobs

Steve? What kind of files are The Engineers @ Apple, sending down to Leopard users with 10.5.2? Bethoven's "Ode To The Steroid Era?" Protection from MS Office-Induced Nausea? Protection from the 1st Mac OS X Virus, code named "Mc Carver", which causes writers to write nice things about Derek Jeter on Red Sox Blogs? WHY is taking almost 4 hours to get through half of the installation of this crap? What's next, Steve-10.6 & "Hello Kitty" which consumes as many resources as a Long Island Great Neck Princess? I could commute between Boston & Brooklyn, in the time it is taking for this ordeal. THIS BETTER BE GOOD!

Doing This In Misremembering Of Roger

Roger’s Sure-Fire List Of People Who Misremembered

“The following people are those who misremembered who I am, namely Roger William Clemens. I am not some uncultured idiot who reads Beowulf, like some twit named Tim Mc Carver, for I’m of superior intellect, for I AM KNOWN as The Rocket.
How can Scott Shannon, the Blue Jays Trainer, forget his giving me a B12 shot, then testify against me to jump-start his career as a shock jock on a radio station in Newark, NJ? Why? Doers he fear my insecurity?
Andy Pettitte knows my butt, inside & out. He could give me a better B12 shot than Scott Shannon. So could Derek Jeter. Why did they misremember me on Valentine’s Day?
I’m announcing today that Sterling Mets LP & Predecessors, Sterling Doubleday Enterprises, Doubleday & Company & The Metropolitan Baseball Club, Inc, are being sued for having in their employ, one Ronald Wesley Taylor, who claimed to be a pitcher on the 1969 World Series Champion NY Mets, whose miserable fans have absolutely no class, whatsoever. Those fans misremembered my class & good taste.
That entity is being sued for allowing Ronald Wesley Taylor, to go on to Medical School in Canada, or my name isn’t Wesley Rogers Clements.
And for that guy, Brian Macintosh, who lied to you about giving me Human Growth Hormone & Winstrol & Testosterone, all he ever gave me was a sore arse, treating the pain with Lidocaine & B12, though Taylor claimed he gave me 1 B12 Shot. My suggestion is that Macintosh should find his Vista & jump out of a couple of Open Windows.
All of you who misremembered, Y’all can kiss mah arse, or my name isn’t Matthew Raymond Clement."

Roger's Lobbying Tour Of Capital Hill

Let me guess-is that because you were wearing a particular ring on your finger, seeking certain favors from your lodge brethren? Did you meet on the level & part on the square? WHY ELSE would you lobby various House members? Something tells me that through Fraternal Compromising, somehow you'll beat the system, again. And that'll be a sad day for a republic, founded by your Fraternal Forebearers. Mike-rsn-nyc-queens


On The Sunday Following A Traditional Latin Mass,

I sometimes find myself dreading my return to a Liturgy with Naturalistic, Bad Liturgical Music. It's often the kind of music that makes you want to run up to the Choir Loft in order to take an axe, in order to smash the organ, especially if the organist is Suzyn Waldman, singing her rendition of "Oh My Goodness Gracious, Roger Clemens Is In George's Bawx". I believe that you get my drift, especially in regards to the Novus Ordo Mass, The current Mass doesn't feel like a real Mass, unlike The Traditional Latin Mass which is Truly-Catholic & has that Catholic Feel to it. For I once viewed a Joint Lutheran-Anglican Eucharistic Service on CBS, & it looked identical to the Novus Ordo Mass in style. The current Mass, sadly, is Protestant in style. More in another article at another time. Mike-rsn-nyc-queens

With Curt's Shoulder Tendons Like Strands Of Linguine

It looks like he'll be sidelined & resting up:

His Dr, Craig Morgan, is calling for surgery;

Others are taking a Much-More Conservative approach;

I spoke with a Sweet-Faced Red Sox Fan, now living in Murray Hill, Manhattan, named Gianny, herself originally from Beverly, MA. She feared that Curt's Career would come to an end if he had surgery;

This conversation took place @ 337 3rd Avenue, @ C/O East 25th Street, @ Rather-Well Known Red Sox Bar & Romance Place, "The Hairy Monk";

Oh, & another thing, my Thanks to Gianny & her friend, Megan, for 2 of The Best Warm Hugs I've enjoyed since The Red Sox won it all in October, '07. It was a Perfect Prelude to The Opening of Spring Training;

The MTA Will Take Over Your World

In July, '08, MTA's Bus Services will become 1 regional entity. MTA NYC Bus, L I Bus & MTA Bus will become MTA Regional Bus. A driver told me that, today. What next? MTA Regional Rail to Providence, RI?


This Morning's Intellectual Discourse AKA The Traditional Latin Mass

As Dear Valerie, a Survivor of "Boston 212" put it, in regards to "Anima Mea", she knows that the "International Committee On English Language In The Liturgy" (ICEL), blew it when the English Interpretation read "I Shall Be Healed" & NOT "My Soul Shall Be Healed." Something is missing there in the Interpretation of "Domine Non Sum Dignus", where "Anima Mea", became "I Shall Be Healed" NOT "My Soul Shall Be Healed". Anima is the Latin Word for Soul:

Valerie stated that "I Shall Be Healed" can be an unrealistic expectation. As the Actual Latin says "Anima" or Soul, the Gang @ ICEL decided to give it a whole new, perhaps humanistic, meaning;

& you wonder WHY I will attend a Latin Mass, as nothing is corrupted to someone's agenda. Humanity cannot exist with out man or woman, having a soul. It's what separates us from being mere animals. Souls are animated by Grace;

WHY Did ICEL, Forget that?

Mike-RSN-NYCQ-In The RC Diocese Of Brooklyn

Labels: ,

As To WHY The Novus Ordo Mass Was Reprinted

Dignum Et Justum Est(It Is Right & Just):

The Gang at the ICEL only interpreted the Latin. They did NOT translate the Latin To English;

Like "Et Cum Spiritu Tuo", which is "And With Thy Spirit", NOT the loose interpretation "And Also With You", which makes for a wholly-natural instead of Spiritual Prayer;

Those in the ICEL assume that everybody out there, is some kind of dummy & that they know better;

In The Confetior in The Novus Ordo Mass, the words "Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa". are left out in the English INTERPRETATION;

Multis is MANY, not all. For The Eucharist is for The Many, as in Believers. For All, makes it sound like anybody in that Church, can receive Holy Communion, including Protestants, whose belief in The Eucharist is either as a Symbol or Consubstantiation(Where Bread & Wine Co-Exist With The Body & Blood Of Christ), & not in Transubstantiation, or that The Victim under The Appearances Of Bread & Wine, do become The Body & Blood Of Christ. All was not used By Christ In The Last Supper;

The ICEL-NOT Translators but Interpreters With A Certain Agenda-Butchers;

In The Words of Chris "Mad Dog" Russo & Jere Smith to the ICEL-"Terrible Job";

by the power of the Holy Spirit, he was bom of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis
sub Pontio Pilato;
passus et sepultus est,
et resurrexit tertia die,
secundum Scripturas,
et ascendit in caelum,
sedet ad dexteram Patris.

Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, iudicare vivos et mortuos, cuius regni non erit finis.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to
judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem:
qui ex Patre Filioque procedit.

Qui cum Patre et Filio
simul adoratur et conglorificatur:
qui locutus est per prophetas.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through
the Prophets.
Et unam, sanctam, catholicam
et apostolicam Ecclesiam.
Confiteor unum baptisma
in remissionem peccatorum.
Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum,
et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.
We believe in one holy catholic
and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Liturgy of the Eucharist
Preparation of the Altar and the Gifts
The priest may say audibly:
Benedictus es, Domine,
Deus universi, quia de tua largitate accepimus panem,
quem tibi offerimus, fructum terrae et operis manuum hominum: ex quo nobis fiet panis vitae.
Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation.
Through your goodness we have this bread to offer, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life.
Benedictus Deus in saecula.
Blessed be God forever.
Per huius aquae et vini mysterium eius efficiamur divinitatis consortes, qui humanitatis nostrae fieri dignatus est particeps.
By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share in the divinity of Christ, who humbled himself to share in our humanity.
Benedictus es, Domine,
Deus universi, quia de tua largitate accepimus vinum,
quod tibi offerimus, fructum vitis et operis manuum hominum: ex quo nobis fiet potus spiritalis.
Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation.
Through your goodness we have this wine to offer, fruit of the vine and work of human hands. It will become our spiritual drink.
Benedictus Deus in saecula.
Blessed be God forever.
In spiritu humilitatis et in animo contrito suscipiamur a te, Domine; et sic fiat sacrificium nostrum in conspectu tuo hodie, ut placeat tibi, Domine Deus.
Lord God, we ask you to receive us and be pleased with the sacrifice we offer you with humble and contrite hearts.
Lava me, Domine,
ab iniquitate mea,
et a peccato meo munda me.
Lord, wash away my iniquity; cleanse me from my sin.

Orate, fratres: ut meum ac vestrum sacrificium acceptabile fiat apud Deum Patrem omnipotentem.
Pray, brethren, that our sacrifice
may be acceptable to God,
the almighty Father.
The congregation stands.
Suscipiat Dominus sacrificium de manibus tuis
ad laudem et gloriam nominis sui, ad utilitatem quoque nostram totiusque Ecclesiae suae sanctae.
May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands
for the praise and glory of his name,
for our good, and the good of all his Church.

Eucharistic Prayer III
Vere Sanctus es, Domine,
et merito te laudat omnis a te condita creatura,
quia per Filium tuum, Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum,
Spiritus Sancti operante virtute, vivificas et sanctificas universa, et populum tibi congregare non desinis, ut a solis ortu usque ad occasum oblatio munda offeratur nomini tuo.
Father, you are holy indeed,
and all creation rightly gives you praise.
All life, all holiness comes from you through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
by the working of the Holy Spirit.
From age to age you gather a people to yourself,
so that from east to west
a perfect offering may be made
to the glory of your name.
Supplices ergo te, Domine, deprecamur, ut haec munera, quae tibi sacranda detulimus,
eodem Spiritu sanctificare digneris,
And so, Father, we bring you these gifts. We ask you to make them holy by the power of your Spirit,
ut Corpus et sanguis fiant Filii tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi, cuius mandato haec mysteria celebramus.
that they may become the body and blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, at whose command we celebrate this eucharist.
Ipse enim in qua nocte tradebatur accepit panem
et tibi gratias agens benedixit,
fregit, deditque discipulis suis, dicens:
On the night he was betrayed, he took bread and gave you thanks and praise. He broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said:
Accipite et manducate
ex hoc omnes:
hoc est enim Corpus meum, quod pro vobis tradetur.
Take this, all of you,
and eat it:
this is my body which will be given up for you.
Simili modo, postquam cenatum est, accipiens calicem, et tibi gratias agens benedixit,
deditque discipulis suis, dicens:
When supper was ended, he took the cup. Again he gave you thanks and praise, gave the cup to his disciples, and said:
Accipite et bibite ex eo omnes: hic est enim calix Sanguinis mei novi et aeterni testamenti, qui pro vobis et pro multis effundetur in remissionem peccatorum.
Hoc facite in meam commemorationem.
Take this, all of you, and drink from it:
this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.
It will be shed for you and for all so that sins
may be forgiven. Do this
in memory of me.
Memorial Acclamation
Worship Hymnal #349
Mysterium fidei.
Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine, et tuam resurrectionem confitemur, donec venias.
Let us proclaim the mystery of faith:
Christ has died,
Christ is risen,
Christ will come again.
Memores igitur, Domine,
eiusdem Filii tui salutiferae passionis necnon mirabilis resurrectionis et ascensionis in caelum, sed et praestolantes alterum eius adventum,
offerimus tibi, gratias referentes, hoc sacrificium vivum et sanctum.
Father, calling to mind the death your Son endured for
our salvation, his glorious resurrection and ascension into heaven, and ready to greet him when he comes again,
we offer you in thanksgiving this holy and living sacrifice.

Respice, quaesumus, in oblationem Ecclesiae tuae et, agnoscens Hostiam, cuius voluisti immolatione placari, concede, ut qui Corpore et Sanguine Filii tui reficimur, Spiritu eius Sancto repleti, unum corpus et unus spiritus inveniamur in Christo.
Look with favor on your Church's offering, and see the Victim whose death has reconciled us to yourself. Grant that we, who are nourished by his body and blood, may be filled with his Holy Spirit, and become one body, one spirit in Christ.
Ipse nos tibi perficiat munus aeternum, ut cum electis tuis hereditatem consequi valeamus, in primis cum beatissima Virgine, Dei Genetrice, Maria, cum beatis Apostolis tuis et gloriosis Martyribus (cum Sancto N.: Sancto diei vel patrono) et omnibus Sanctis, quorum intercessione perpetuo apud te confidimus adiuvari.
May he make us an everlasting gift to you and enable us to share in the inheritance of your saints, with Mary, the virgin Mother of God; with the apostles, the martyrs, (Saint N. —the saint of the day or the patron saint) and all your saints, on whose constant intercession we rely for help.
Haec Hostiae nostrae reconciliationis proficiat, quaesumus, Domine, ad totius mundi pacem atque salutem.
Ecclesiam tuam, peregrinantem in terra, in fide et caritate firmare digneris cum famulo tuo Papa nostro N. et Episcopo nostro N., cum episcopali ordine et universo clero et omni populo acquisitionis tuae.
Votis huius familiae, quam tibi astare voluisti, adesto propitius.
Omnes filios tuos ubique dispersos tibi, clemens Pater, miseratus coniunge.
Fratres nostros defunctos et omnes qui, tibi placentes, ex hoc saeculo transierunt, in regnum tuum benignus admitte, ubi fore speramus, ut simul gloria tua perenniter satiemur,
per Christum Dominum nostrum, per quem mundo bona cuncta largiris.
Lord, may this Sacrifice, which has made our peace with you, advance the peace and salvation of all the world. Strengthen in faith and love your pilgrim Church on earth; your servant, Pope N., our bishop N., and all the bishops, with the clergy and the entire people your Son has gained for you.
Father, hear the prayers of the family you have gathered here before you. In mercy and love unite all your children wherever they may be.
Welcome into your kingdom our departed brothers and sisters, and all who have left this world in your friendship. We hope to enjoy for ever the vision of your glory, through Christ our Lord, from whom all good things come.
Per ipsum,
et cum ipso,
et in ipso,

Praeceptis salutaribus moniti, et divina institutione formati, audemus dicere:
Let us pray with confidence to the Father in the words our Savior gave us:
Pater noster, qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum;
fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into
but deliver us from evil.
Libera nos, quaesumus, Domine, ab omnibus malis, da propitius pacem in diebus nostris,
ut, ope misericordiae tuae adiuti, et a peccato simus
semper liberi et ab omni perturbatione securi:
exspectantes beatam spem
et adventum Salvatoris nostri Iesu Christi.

Quia tuum est regnum, et potestas, et gloria in saecula.
Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day.
In your mercy keep us free from sin

"Pro Multis" Is NOT "For All"

Pro Multis Is Prayed in The Canon or Eucharistic Prayer of The Church, Catholic & Apostolic @ The Consecration:

Multis, Multiple, Multiply, Multiplex, all mean Many;

OMNI means All;

"For All" does NOT translate from "Pro Multis";

You so called Translators are giving your OWN INTERPRETATION to The Mass & of Christ's Words;

"Not Clement Nor Loving Nor Sweet William Roger's Sheer BS Explanation"

Last Night, I listened to a retired NYPD Constable, who had an injured ankle. The Retired MOS or Member Of The Service, revealed that he had to be treated for the ankle injury with Lidocaine & Steroids by a Doctor, by injections to the injured area itself:

So WHY was William Roger Clemens always getting injections in his arse? He did not need to be constantly-injected with all that stuff, which he managed to get without a prescription. NONE of this was about healing himself-rather he wanted to be ahead of the game;

& William Roger broke down @ the end, with a groin pull in the 2nd Inning of Game 3 of The ALDS. He did NOT need to have B12 Injections, as he could've taken that in Pill Form;

William Roger? You're NOTHING More Than a Junkie, who thought you could fool anybody & all you fooled was YOURSELF;



This Season Is Costing Us A "Schilling"

It feels like '05 all over again, when Mr Schilling missed about 1/2 the season, after the "World Champion Idiots" of '04. This was a time of finding a new pitching combination & "The Schill" was missed, Bloody Sock & All:

It's not time to panic. It's also not time to make a DUMB Deal for a Broken-Down 'Roid Boy(Like The Gag-Me Stunt), so to the Red Sox, do NOT deal for Armando Benitez, as the cascade of booing rage could shatter the windows at Boston Beer Works, The Cask n Flagon & Game On Cafe';

Let's put it this way-Curt is growing older & methinks it's time to hang 'em up. I don't need to hear these words "Oh My Goodness Gracious-Curt Schilling is in John Henry's Bawx", coming from Hazel Mae's Yap(ONLY Suzyn Waldman could make that phrase come to life, as if she was full of caffeine);

@ least this time around, there are younger arms at the fore, so things look better than '05, though History has a way of repeating itself, often;

I Need Something "Latin" This Weekend

I'm NOT talking about the NY Mets Farm System, which IS The Dominican Republic:

I'm talking about the Soothing Sounds Of Gregorian Chant, which I can get at a Traditional Latin Mass, which is NOT available at the Mass based on the 1549 Anglican Book of Common Prayer;

Homilies @ the TLM, stir The Soul. Homiles @ many Novus Ordo Masses have about as much soul as a Bad Telecast of "FOX Saturday Baseball" where the words "I'm Joe Buck & will be joined in a Moment by Tim Mc Carver", only causes Parishioners to cry out "Please Stop";

The Music in TLM is Gregorian Chant, in Praise To God. The Music in Novus Ordo can be as bad as "Bleacher Creatures'" Rendition of "YMCA", usually a "Me, Me, Me" Performance. Instead of "Sweet Caroline", it's "Sweet Sacrament We Thee Adore"(Though Some Novus Ordo-ist Might Find a way to put "Sweet Sacrament" to the Tune of "Sweet Caroline"-Please-NO);

Latin Mass This Weekend, Not "Rock & Roll", TRULY SOOTHES The Soul;

In Nomini Patris Et Filli Et Spiritu Santi, Amen;

There's Evidence That Roger Clemens Engaged In "Needle Point n Click"

It is being reported that the Not So-Clement, Nor Loving, Nor Sweet William Roger Clemens, is in exceptionally-serious trouble:

You see, Mr Brian Mc Namee of The Rockaways, known as Roger & Andy's Personal "Strength Coach", has PHYSICAL EVIDENCE, including Syringes, Gauze Pads & Traces of Roger's Blood & Various Steroids, which he gave to the FBI, which will put Roger in the position of lying to Congress, which could lead to his indictment of Federal Perjury Charges;

The 2000* World Series Champion Yankees will have an asterisk, next to that team's name;

Mistaking a ball for a bat & almost killing a man by beaning him, while drugged up like that, made me wonder just what was Roger full of, besides "S--t";

For Yesterday We Feasted & Celebrated & Today We Fast & Do Penance

Ash Wednesday-the start of 40 Days Of Penance, continuing into The Easter Triduum & then Into The Feast Of The Resurrection:

To those of you who're 14 Years of Age & Upward, as well as all Fridays Of Lent & Good Friday, no consumption of Meat is to take place, including TODAY;

When my parents were growing up, in Brooklyn, there was Abstinence from Meat on both Wednesdays & Fridays of Lent;

Sadly, There's the Practice of "A & P" Catholics, who'll be seen getting ashes today & at Palm Sunday Mass, just for The Palm;

This group treats Church as if it was a Giveaway Day at a Major League Baseball Game;

"From Dust You Came & To Dust You Shall Return, So Repent & Believe In The Gospel";

In Nomini Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritu Santi, Amen;

Deo Gratias;

Being that it is Lent, "The Gloria" will neither be sung nor chanted. The "Alleluia" will neither be sung nor chanted, as this is a Penitential Season;

"Pange Domine" will continue to be the Gregorian Chant on This Blog, until The Resurrection Season;

& to those Exceptionally-Stubborn Members of NYC's St Patrick's Day Committee, who INSIST That TRADITION be maintained on St Patrick's Day, by Marching Up 5th Avenue, just remember that The Day shall not be celebrated Liturgically, as This is HOLY WEEK & that it falls on Monday of Holy Week, & not a day to get "Lit";

Frankly, I Hope That Edward Cardinal Egan comes from the Steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral, to give The Arrogant Mr Dunleavy, a Grand Swift Boot In Dunleavy's Arse for this Liturgical Faux Pas;



The Best "Super Tuesday" Coverage Was NOT On US TV

I suggest that when you want the best news coverage in North America, that you click on the title above:

Peter Mansbridge is THE BEST ANCHORMAN In North America.Also, quite good are Alison Smith, Susan Orbiston, & Mark Kelley, CBC Correspondents;

Our Neighbors in Canada ran the best "Super Tuesday" coverage with In Depth Coverage, which puts our networks to shame;

There was no "Fluff" in this newscast;

@ Least The NY Giants haven't been called before Congress, to answer Steroid Allegations, unlike the NY Yankees of Y2K;

I wonder if Belichik is Taping This Celebration;

I wonder if Ed Koch, he who disdained The Giants for playing in East Rutherford, NJ, is celebrating today, as if I cared;

In My Farewell To Shea Stadium, I shall remember my ONLY NY Giants Live Game, a Victory Over San Diego & This Super Bowl Upset For The Ages. I think that it was the Re-Kindling Of A Rooting Interest;

It Was A Grand Thing To See A Protege' Of Bill Parcells Winning The Super Bowl-Great One Tommy

Tom Brady got tossed like a salad> In fact, he got sacked 5 Times. The New England Patriots lost it 17-14 to the NY Giants in AZ:

NE had no real Offensive Line-Tuesday, the NY Giants get "The Canyon Of Heroes Treatment", with a Parade up Lower Broadway, which is well-deserved;

This was the kind of game that required total attention, as it was THAT Interesting-I was in no mood for idle conversation;

Congratulations, Tom Coughlin;

Fitzy is NOT Happy, for once;

Belechik is unhappy-in fact so unhappy, he was taping Celebrations in Queens Bars;

Plaxico Burress had the Game-Winning Touchdown with :35 to play;

Could The Idiots on "FOX NFL Sunday" have looked any DUMBER. Howie? I know that you're from Boston-you don't need to put on your Sawx Cap. @ least Jimmy Johnson had some intelligent perspective on Belechik, losing;

Joe Buck looked like a DOOF in that "Pepsi" Commercial. Wait, he even puts me to sleep during The World Series;

A Belichik Joke

Bill Belichik dies in a car crash and ends up in front in front of St.Peter.
St. Peter says I don’t know what to do with you. You’ve created many Videos and helped a lot of Coaches in the new electronic age, but you’ve also been a royal pain to some of our big fans. I’ll tell you what, I’ll let you have a look at heaven and hell and choose for yourself.
So St. Peter shows Bill heaven, with the clouds and Angels and harps, and Bill thinks to himself: “OK, as far as it goes.”
Then St. Peter shows Bill hell, with scantily clad bathing beauties on a tropical beach with palm trees and Bill thinks to himself: “This is a no-brainer!”
So Bill says to St. Peter: “I’ll take hell!”
Two weeks later St. Peter thinks to himself: “I wonder how Bill is doing?”
So he drops by hell and finds Bill chained to a wall, consumed by flames and screaming in agony.
“Where are the bathing beauties, where’s the beach?” Cried Bill. “This isn’t what you showed me!”
“That”, said St. Pete, “was a demo.”

On The Fans Watching Tonight's SB XLII

It's now 12:05 to the Alleged Kickoff Time on FOX. Joe Buck & Troy Aikman will report the action, or talk about everything but what's going on(It'll be just like Buck & Mc Carver on WS CIII & Before That)@ SB XLII:

I have my name in 2 Super Bowl Pools-One @ Professor Thom's, a Well-Known Red Sox Watering Hole in The East Village in Manhattan(219 2nd Avenue To Be exact) & @ Richmond Hill Moose Lodge#14, in Queens. Both are small wagers;

& the fan bases are not homogeneous in both the NY Metro Area, nor in New England, especially in Boston(If Drinkwater, The President Of Giant Glass, who sits next to Kapstein @ Fenway Park, behind Home Plate is any indication as he's a Huge NY Giants Fan);

#1-NY Giants Games in the '50s & '60s, were televised all over NY & New England on various CBS Affiliates, so the NY Giants have a fan base in New England. The Dude you heard in the 1960s, most-often, was Frank Gifford;

#2-The NY Giants were selling out games when the Patriots struggled to make rent money;

#3-In NY, there are other factions, such as NY Jets Fans, who whine when the Jets Win Or Lose, like a bunch of Long Island North Shore Princesses, who most-often of today's Jets Crop, are Yankees Fans, like the INFAMOUS Bleacher Creatures. The Old Shea Stadium Variety Of Jets Fans, who tended to go for The Mets, are faded into a sunset;

#4-There's the Dallas Cowboys & Green Bay Packers Factions;

#5-Most will root for the Final Score in the Football Boxes, irregardless of team;

#6-The Red Sox-Themed Bars will make the most cash. The Hairy Monk will sell perfect pints of Guinness Stout, while Professor Thom's will sell kegs of Harpoon Thom's Ale;

#7-The NY Giants actually play in East Rutherford, NJ, while the New England Patriots play in Foxborough, MA, between Boston, MA & Providence, RI;

#8-How suburban a Super Bowl can you get;

In Boston, I see Game On Cafe & Cask N Flagon, getting packed houses by Fenway Park;

I look at today, this way-12 Days until Pitchers & Catchers report to their MLB Camp Bases in FLorida & Arizona;

Theo had a quiet winter while Omar just set the world on fire over Johann Santana;

In the Words of Jere of "A Red Sox Fan From Pinstripe Territory", he says "Go Neither Team";

I say "Go Score";

After today, it'll be 61 Days before you here Joe Buck on TV, when he utters the most-terrifying words in Baseball, namely "Joe Buck Here & will be joined in a Moment by Tim Mc Carver";

"Let's Go To The Videotape"

In The Words of Warner Wolf, those words are spoken to commemorate another Bill Belechick Taping Scheme, from Super Bowl XXXVII involving the St Louis Rams:

For The Sake Of "Hominibus Bonae Voltantis", couldn't Bill Belechik have taped something more useful, more-instructive, such as the times when Roger Clemens was getting his butt injected full of all that "B12", Roger said he used+Before & After Pictures? Ditto, Andy Pettitte & Chuck Knoblauch?

THAT would be doing something to earn a Nobel Prize instead of being fined by the NFL, all the time;

The Santana Sweepstakes DONE

@ least it's NOT Super Bowl XLII BS. The Johann Santana Negotiations with The NY Mets ENDED @ this point & Mets Fans await news from Shea Stadium, as to the outcome. MLB allowed for the extension of the deadline to 7PM:

Ok, WEPN reported that The Mets Negotiations have ended & Santana will take his physical, tomorrow. Ironically, this was heard on The Rangers Pre-Game Show. Meanwhile, "The FAN" was in the middle of an inane singalong, & then broke the news;

@ least this news is a break from whether or not Tom Brady or Eli Manning, were rumored to have farted on a packed 4 Train to Yankee Stadium;

7 Years @ $150.75M;

& He passed his Physical & is now a member of The NY Mets;

& On Opening Day, Pedro Martinez will be starting;
