Archbishop of Salzburg declares Jesus Christ to be a layman....

Reactions 
"A topic of conversation was the shortage of priests. The responses of the bishops remained superficial and concentrated to emphasize the role of the laity. With the devaluation of the priesthood and appreciation of the laity, the new Archbishop of Salzburg went the furthest.
The new archbishop of Salzburg, the Franciscan Franz Lackner, reigning since January 12, 2014,  said, "The Future of the Church" will include fewer priests, but that "the laity can take on important and responsible positions in the Church." These tasks should not belittle you, Lackner said. "We have forgotten that Jesus was a layman.""

German posing as a Cardinal arrested

Reactions 
The police in the southern Brazilian city of São Paulo, according to media reports, have arrested a 66-year-old German, who posed as a cardinal. Already in early November, the Archdiocese of São Paulo warned the local churches of the man, who said Mass and read confessions in the locality. The man is now to be deported within the next 15 days to Germany.



 The man, whose real name is specified in the Brazilian press as Wolfgang Schuler, had been arrested by the police in the center of São Paulo on November 20, after he could not identify himself. In various Catholic institutions in which he asked for shelter and financial assistance, he had previously posed as "Brother Andre Cardinal of Hohenzollern" and a member of the Carthusian Order. In some cases, he had also posed as the Bishop of Osnabrück.



 On November 7, the Archdiocese of São Paulo published a letter that warned of the false cardinal. Schuler was said to have been already been picked up by police in 2003 with false papers in the northeastern state of Bahia. He was due to be expelled at that time but escaped.



 Planned expulsion



In the city of Mogi das Cruzes, Schuler asked a monastery for shelter. To the monks, he pretended to be a relative of the German-born Suzane von Richthofen, who is serving a prison sentence of 39 years in prison in the state of São Paulo. Richthofen , supposedly a distant relative of the German World War II pilot Manfred von Richthofen, murdered her mother and father in 2002.



Schuler told the monks he wanted to visit Suzane von Richthofen in prison. However, since she did not know the alleged relative, the monks became suspicious and alerted their superiors. Schuler then traveled to São Paulo, where he was eventually arrested. According to media reports, the responsible Federal police have already requested travel papers for Schuler's expulsion from the German Consulate General in São Paulo.

Better if the poor kill themselves says Minister of "Health" in Lithuania

Reactions 
"Euthanasia could be a good choice for the poor, because due to their poverty they do not have access to medical assistance," such is the "solution" to the problem of poor patients being proposed by the Lithuanian "Euthanasia can be a good choice for the poor, because of their poverty do not have access to medical assistance," such is the "solution" to the problem of poor patients being proposed by the new Minister of Health in Lithuania, Rimante Šalaševičiūtė, took office in early June. She immediately began a discussion on the legalization of euthanasia in Lithuania and said in an interview that zx Lithuania is not a welfare state, palliative care was not accessible for all. This is why euthanasia may be a good choice for people who "do not want to inflict on their relatives the spectacle of their suffering."

Muslim call to prayer from Church in Mainz.

Reactions 

They claim it is an "art event"- mixing of church bells and the call to prayer.

They claim this has belonged to tradition in Würzburg for many years!!! Do they really know no better?

Reactions 


They also filled their cathedral with chairs....what they were trying to prove is elusive as with all modern art.

If anyone says that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs which the Catholic Church uses in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety rather than stimulants to piety, let him be anathema.

Aukirche in Monschau, 1910


The same in 1962- by which time a "people's" altar had arrived, after a restoration of 1937.



This after a "restoration" in 1966.





It was atthe beginning of a rather inglorious career for the architect, Stephen Legge (he died in 2005) and his wife Ursula.

How not to do Eucharistic Adoration!

Reactions 

Full liturgical horror of a carnival Mass in Germany.

Reactions 


Dancing is not a form of expression for the Christian liturgy. In about the third century, there was an attempt in certain Gnostic-Docetic circles to introduce it into the liturgy. For these people, the Crucifixion was only an appearance. . . . Dancing could take the place of the liturgy of the Cross, because, after all, the Cross was only an appearance. The cultic dances of the different religions have different purposes - incantation, imitative magic, mystical ecstasy - none of which is compatible with the essential purpose of the liturgy as the "reasonable sacrifice". It is totally absurd to try to make the liturgy "attractive" by introducing dancing pantomimes (wherever possible performed by professional dance troupes), which frequently (and rightly, from the professionals' point of view) end with applause. Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment. Such attraction fades quickly - it cannot compete in the market of leisure pursuits, incorporating as it increasingly does various forms of religious titillation. Pope Benedict XVI (Spirit of the Liturgy p. 198)
This their 2014 effort- Kölsch is the local dialect being used for humorous effect- this is where the theory of vernacular liturgy gets you to. At 12.42, they sing the homosexual anthem YMCA!!

To be in (modernist) limbo in the Jesuit church in Vienna

Model of a new modern art installation, To be in Limbo, which was installed there two days ago.

Below is the actual installation before being lifted.   St Ignatius looks down in disgust from the pulpit whose height is never used.



A previous installation called Jesuit cosmos.



The Jesuits, the most decadent and neo-modernistic of all the orders.  The worse that could have happened would be to make one of their members Pope and it has.......

An earlier installation from the same team of Steinbrenner, Dempf and Huber in Klosterneuberg, whose Abbot banned Cardinal Burke from saying the Latin Mass in one of his associated churches.  He prefers the lowest expression of modern art to the highest expression of the human being to encounter God.
