DON'T YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE PROBLEM? LOL!

While over 100 people, many of whom were well into their senior years, stood outside the Cathedral for nearly 3 hours, most of the people inside the Cathedral, many of whom were nowhere close to their senior years, apparently could barely stand for a moment to accept the communion bread (since that is what Kiko believes it to be - just bread).

Okay, okay, so the NCW statute permits these people to remain in their place to receive communion, but look at the zoo it creates. What a mess. And the only reason why they are standing is because Pope Benedict demanded that they at least do that when he oversaw the revision of Kiko's statute in 2008. And of course, there is NO provision for the "communicants" to NOT consume the "bread" immediately upon reception as the rest of us are required to do. Yet that is what they do. This is the permission that Apuron says he has "somewhere."

The bottom line is that Liturgy is Theology in action.
  • If one does not believe that this is Jesus Christ made present under the appearances of bread and wine through the One Sacrifice of his Body and Blood on Calvary, then one does not need an altar, one only needs a table. And a table is what they have. 
  • If one does not believe that this is Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, made present under the appearances of bread and wine through the One Sacrifice of his Body and Blood on Calvary, then one need not have care or concern for the thousands of fragments of his Body dropped to the floor and trampled upon. And care and concern they do not have. 
  • If one only believes that this is some sort of banquet and not the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, then why not just stay in your seat and let what used to be priests act as restaurant waiters. And stay in their seats is what they do (save for the 12 inches or so it takes for some to extend their legs who actually stood to receive the bread. 
So while you may be shocked at what you see here, don't you see that YOU are the problem? Not them! You see, YOU are the problem because (gasp), YOU:
  • Believe that THIS is Jesus Christ made present under the appearances of bread and wine through the One Sacrifice of his Body and Blood on Calvary.
  • Believe that THIS is Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, made present under the appearances of bread and wine through the One Sacrifice of his Body and Blood on Calvary.
  • Believe that THIS is NOT just a banquet but the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and that a priest is not a restaurant waiter but one who offers sacrifice on the ALTAR of God. 
So how dare you criticize the Neos for doing it their way. Don't you know that Brother Tony says they have permission to do it this way? Don't you know that he is going to "find it?

Meanwhile, the crowd grows and grows.
