Feast of St. Venantius
Martyr at the age of fifteen
* That is, "from the Chair" of the Sovereign Roman Pontiff speaking also in his capacity as the supreme lawgiver and judge whose judgments and decrees, solemnly issued in the name of God, cannot be revoked.
** ** The New 'Mass' was defined in Pope Paul VI's "Institutio Generalis" (General Introduction) according as the Lutherans understood it and not as the Council of Trent dogmatically defined it: “The Lord’s Supper or Mass is the assembly or meeting of the People of God, met together with a priest presiding, to celebrate the Memorial*** of the Lord."
*** Though still using the same term, this is no longer understood, however, in the same sense as it was understood in Catholicism prior to Vatican II, that is, to show the death of the Lord (1 Cor. 11.26) by the shedding of His Most Precious Blood; hence, we find in the traditional formula for the consecration of the wine the "Mysterium Fidei" (the mystery of Faith) - now, shifted to the "anamnesis" of the New 'Mass' but pushed from the sole focus to a side: the "presider", "Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith," to which the assembly responds, "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again," for the inventors of the New Rite knew very well that an explicitly diabolical action always manifests a doing away with the Cross and that completely.
Our Lady in Her first Fatima Message attempts to salvage then our Traditional Eucharistic life, vicarious of the Passion and Death of the Beloved on Calvary - a life in which the interests of the Sovereign God (all which pertain to His glory - that is, His manifested majestic goodness duly acknowledged by His creatures) occupy the centrally prime position to which follows in order the interest of salvation of souls; a life according to the rhythm of the beatings of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord on the Cross: to console and appease the greatly offended heart of Our Heavenly Father (cf., our reply to a comment on "The Problem with the 'Divine Mercy Devotion'") and to snatch poor miserable sinners descending to their eternal wretchedness in hell which was prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt. 25.41).
