More on the blasphemy at Saint Mary's Church in Orange, Massachusetts...

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 2148, teaches that, "Blasphemy is directly opposed to the second commandment. It consists in uttering against God - inwardly or outwardly - words of hatred, reproach, or defiance; in speaking ill of God; in failing in respect toward him in one's speech; in misusing God's name. St. James condemns those 'who blaspheme that honorable name [of Jesus] by which you are called.' The prohibition of blasphemy extends to language against Christ's Church, the saints, and sacred things. It is also blasphemous to make use of God's name to cover up criminal practices, to reduce peoples to servitude, to torture persons or put them to death. The misuse of God's name to commit a crime can provoke others to repudiate religion.
Blasphemy is contrary to the respect due God and his holy name. It is in itself a grave sin."

In my last post, I examined the blasphemy committed by Father Piotr Pawlus in a homily given last weekend at Saint Mary's Church in Orange, Massachusetts.  Specifically, Fr. Pawlus asserted that the Fifteenth Chapter of Matthew, verses 21-28, reveals Jesus' "warts."  This confused priest else asserted that the Canaanite woman bested Jesus in argument.

Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church, in His Compendium of Theology, writes, "Inasmuch as Christ is God and the Word of God, He is the begotten Wisdom of the Father, as 1 Corinthians 1:24 indicates: 'Christ the power of God and the Wisdom of God.' For the interior word of any intellectual being is nothing else than the conception of wisdom.  And since, as we said above, the Word of God is perfect and is one with God, He must be the perfect conception of the Wisdom of God the Father.  Consequently, whatever is contained in the Wisdom of God the Father as unbegotten is contained wholly in the Word as begotten and conceived.  And so we are told, in Colossians 2:3:, that in Him (namely, in Christ), 'are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.'"

And yet, Father Pawlus would have us believe that the Lord Jesus has "warts" or imperfections.

Saint Alphonsus de Liguori, Doctor of the Church and a great moral theologian, says that:

"All Sins are Hateful, in the Sight-of God; but the Sin of Blasphemy ought more-Properly to be Called, an Abomination-to the Lord. Every Mortal Sin, as the Apostle says, Dishonors God. "Thou that makest thy Boast of the Law, by Transgression of the Law, Dishonourest God" - Romans 2:23. Other Sins Dishonor God Indirectly, by the Violation-of His Law; but Blasphemy Dishonors Him Directly, by the Profanation of His Holy Name. Hence Saint Chrysostom teaches that no Sin Exasperates the Lord so-much-as the Sin of Blasphemy, against His Adorable Name. "Nihil ita exacerbat Deum, sicut quando nomen ejus blasphematur". Dearly Beloved Christians, allow me then, this Day, to show you First (1st), the Great Enormity-of the Sin of Blasphemy; Secondly (2nd), the Great Rigor, with which God Punishes it." See full article here.

It is significant that while I was banned from Saint Mary's Facebook page for defending the perennial teaching of the Church, such filth is tolerated and even applauded at Holy Mass.

Saint Mary's has become a haunt of demons.  A place where blasphemy against Our Lord is, apparently, most welcome.

Blasphemy consists, "in speaking ill of God." That says it all. Will Piotr now be banned from St. Mary's Facebook page?

There is a lot of anger and hatred at St. Mary's. Which explains the disintegrating congregation, plummeting collection and lack of enthusiasm for participation.

At this rate, the parish doors will close in the near future.

The Ship of Peter is torn apart
Martyred in its Holy Teaching
It sinks and sinks, no work of art
The bottom though never reaching
Dissidents are screaming loud
Leaving behind an awful niff
Pretending to be proudly stout
Gearing the Ship into a cliff
Jesus shows His wounded Heart
Smitten with a deadly dart
Peter the Rock in desolation
Deploring severe desecration
Wake up, you Christian Brother
Show now your truthful face
With Mary our Heavenly Mother
We'll reach that Peaceful Place
In allegiance to the Holy Father 
United in prayer and fasting
No victory will claim, but rather
Satan's defeat be everlasting.

Tragic for a priest to speak so of our perfect Lord. I have the parish, and the entire diocese in my prayers. Sad.
