Loneliness and Unemployment

In which Dorothy gets her Polish-o-phile on.

Just kidding! Since I thought you’d all be depressed, I’ve decided show you a video of a young Catholic priest in Warsaw leading 50,000 Catholics (some devout!) in loud chants of “Ewangelia, a nie koran!” which means, “The Gospel, not the Koran.”  Most of you won’t understand anything except the many references to ++Jezus Chrystus++, but it will probably cheer you up anyway. Think Gates of Vienna, Jan Sobieski II and croissants, and Bobek’s your uncle.

Father Twentysomething is yelling against secularism, too.

Yup, sit down to twelve minutes of Polish-Catholic ranting goodness with flags and men baying “God, honour, fatherland” like wolves.

    He appear to be welcoming the devil himself.

  2. B flat says:

    Sub tuum refugium confugimus Sancta Dei Genitrix…. This is also prayed by Eastern Catholics and the Orthodox Church.

  3. Lady J says:

    This is the first pope who has welcomed the infidels rather than calling a crusade against them!

  4. Aaron Baugher says:

    After reviewing some of his statements, I’d cautiously agree. Everyone remembers his Regensburg address because it was supposedly offensive, but he made other statements at other times about the necessity of welcoming Muslim migrants with open hearts. However, the circumstances were different then; it wasn’t so obvious what that would mean. Also, Benedict was far more careful with his language than Francis, so in the statements I found he made a point of distinction between opening our hearts to them in terms of charity, versus the state’s responsibility to deal with them as a practical matter.

    I’m pretty sure Benedict wouldn’t be calling for a Crusade to evict the Moors from Europe, any more than Francis is. But I think he’d be more careful with his rhetoric and try to stay away from the political side of it, instead of charging in looking to score political points as Francis does. He might even say some less-than-glowing things about Islam, which would be a nice change.

  5. Dorothy says:

    It was the “Under Thy Protection” prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary. I completely forget what we call this in English because I’ve only heard it prayed by Poles. Silly because it is a very old Catholic prayer that all Catholics used to pray.

    I don’t think my brothers are barbarians but I do think the culture is rotten because the people have never embraced the gospel. I see corruption, sexual perversion and greed at all levels. I have lived elsewhere so I know that the religion of a country affects ithe way people live. It’s like living in Old Testament times with all these strange gods, idols and superstitions. It’s a very popular but mistaken belief that cultures are all relative or that foreigners and missionaries are to blame for everything and not the moral degeneracy of a country’s citizens. However, I don’t subscribe to racism and I misread what you were saying and felt offended.

  7. Galloglasses says:

    My apologies, I had thought your comment was replying to my own response to the guest commentator. I retract my previous comment. Sorry.

  8. Guest says:

    I posted that the clarify my first response. Thank you for clarifying your post. I was confused what you meant and actually felt offended. Sorry for my misunderstanding.

  9. Two2trees says:

    Yes. Benedict grasps the musloid problem at least on a theological level — not a bad place to start. Francis, on the other hand, applies the subtlty of thought to this by which he arrives at homily pronouncements declaring God impotent and islam peace.

    So yes. The difference would be unable not to manifest.

  10. Two2trees says:

    We need priests and BISHOPS like this. Heck, a half decent pope wouldn’t be all too bad either.

  11. Yankeegator says:

    Now these are Brothers I can relate to!

  12. Galloglasses says:

    Did you not read my comment? I said that I DO consider the Philippines as part of Christendom.

  13. Chloe says:

    Thank you again.

  14. Linda Clerkin says:

    Aina, hey???!!!

  15. Dorothy says:

    By later, I mean later in the week, just so you know! In short, however, it is a speech quoting Pope Francis of the importance of going to the peripheries (here, of Poland) to preach the Gospel and win souls from the influence of left-wing secularism.

  16. Dorothy says:

    It was a Polish Independence Rally. The priest gave a speech encouraging the marchers to evangelize the rest of Poland and win them from liberal secularist thinking. The drum kit was not involved in his speech. There are so many priests in Poland, it is not unusual for them to get involved in political causes.

  17. Galloglasses says:

    If most of the world became Christian than Christendom would be more than Europe. In my own Opinion, Christendom actually includes all Christian nations, including the schismatic ones, in error though they may be, they are still brothers. This would include places like Ethiopia who have long been cut off from fellow Christian states. These Barbarians are exactly that, barbarians, not just ‘outsiders’. There are plenty of people outside of Christendom who are not barbaric and can be reasoned with and dealt with as men. Christendom is, at its heart about Christ, whatever else people attach to it can only ever be a part of it and not the main focus. Christendom has only ever become synonymous with ‘Europeanness’ only because pretty much all the non-European lands of Christendom got gobbled up by the caliphate for over a thousand years. In my own opinion, Christendom today would extend over the Americas and the Philippines.

    To see fellow Catholics from a very different culture than yours as a barbarian simply because said culture is not European is a sin. (however if said culture actually IS barbaric, it is your duty to teach your brother as best you can why this is so, otherwise to actively tear down his patrimony because it is different than yours is to hate your brother) He is your brother in Christ first.

  18. Guest says:

    I want to know why Philipians is not considered part of Christendom, for example. All the things I’ve read about immigrants and barbarians makes me want to know whether trads are talking about culture and religion (which can change) or race (which cannot). All this talk of “barbarians” make me very uncomfortable, so I want to know who is considered a barbarian by whom and for what reason.

  19. Randi Gordon says:

    A very stirring speech. I watched it twice over with my family. We were all fascinated to see such a multitude of people cheering for the Gospel and Jesus Christ and praying (or saying a creed?) with the priest in public. I have never seen such a thing in all my life.

  20. Lynda says:

    We pray for the conversion of all, especially those who are in positions of power and influence. All evidence is that Francis is a formal heretic – he has been continually attacking Faith and morals and those who uphold them. He still holds the Office in the ecclesiastical, visible realm until the visible Church acts and tries the question and makes a finding on the matter. We pray this will happen.

  21. Lynda says:

    The institutions of the Church were infiltrated and dominated by supporters of the atheistic and eugenic, totalitarian one world government. They are supporting the attacks against Faith, morality and the natural and moral institutions of marriage, family and Church by this evil, materialist global power. In a couple of weeks, the NWO government is establishing its world “carbon” taxes. Our Lady of Fatima, intercede for us.

  22. Lynda says:

    Yes, we need a Crusade, but we don have enough holy men and women. We need to pray and sacrifice more. And the Western powers are using the Islamists to create chaos and destruction in order to increase their totalitarian power.

  23. Guest says:

    I have a question. Suppose that most of the world converts to Christianity. Would Europe still be considered Christendom, or would all of the non-European Christian nations be part of it as well? Is the idea of insider or outsider about cultural values or is it about nationality and race? I can understand from common sense that not all cultures are good, but do most traditional Catholics really accept non-Europeans as genuine Catholics or are they always held to be barbarians?

  24. Guest says:

    It’s madness to say that we must pray for the man people call Pope to convert to Catholicism. A non-member of the Church cannot be its head. Why would you think otherwise?

  25. antigon says:

    Some ruminations, before answering directly.
    Politicians haven’t been paying any attention to what Popes say – often to their rue, as Napoleon concluded &, regarding more recent adventures, Hitler & the Soviets discovered – for some centuries now. To an extent they worried about the faithful, but the depredations of the clericalists under Montini & Wojtyla seemed mostly to have solved that dilemma, they’ve concluded, once formal Communism imploded.
    This overwhelmingly savage as well as comprehensively successful clericalist assault on the Faith since & during Vatican II, not least if hardly only due to its rapefest, pretty much destroyed whatever public authority the clergy once had, by the time Ratzinger became Benedict – which of course, leaving aside his own pre-Papal role in all that, BXVI understood, if alas also reinforced by his timid & scholarly nature.
    Still, whether prudentially or no since it resulted in some murders, his Regensburg observations were clearly critical of Islam, & for reasons vindicated not solely in Paris yesterday. So it seems fair to say his Councilesque ecumenical confusion was not identical to whatever Bergoglio’s been a’garbling.
    And while his motu proprio about the real Mass was the chief & very significant accomplishment of Benedict’s papacy, by temperament, circumstance & likely enough inclination, he felt & likely was in fact without the means either to confront the world, nor the clericalists.
    Per accidens, whether or not Bergoglio is truly Peter &/or Benedict’s successor, he is arguably proving a significant historical figure precisely by bringing all the pus to the surface through his embrace of it, instead of but letting it gurgle as obtained during other post-Council papacies. The distinction between the Catholic Faith & the clericalist repudiation of it now has a clarity that has otherwise been muddy to absent at best, for fifty years & counting.
    All of which preliminary to the hypothetical chase: doubt Benedict would have endorsed the invasion, might even have raised objections to it, but again might not have on the very realistic grounds that it would have been ignored & scorned, & undermined such good as he might otherwise have been able to accomplish for Christians in Moslem lands. But suspect it likely he would have recognized its implications.
    That said, were he to recognize now the even deeper crisis for the Faith Herself & reassume the duties of his papacy – on the comparable annulment grounds that his abdication didn’t take because he hadn’t a full grasp of the decision – the explosive schism that would result would a) substantially help cleanse the Church of her clericalist enemies, b) create a circumstance, whatever its multitudinous calamities, far superior to the current horrors, & c) very likely restore a serious measure of both freedom & authority to the papal office he recovered.

  26. Chloe says:

    Thank you. X

  27. Doctor Nobody says:

    I’m afraid I didn’t like it, and it’s not just the sight of a priest on stage with a drum kit (what was going on?)


  28. Aaron Baugher says:

    Honest question, because I’m wondering about it myself: do you think Benedict’s response to this invasion would be any different from Francis’s? He showed the same ecumenical respect for Islam and the Koran, though perhaps with less personal enthusiasm than Francis. I could see him saying less, but probably not anything much different.

  29. Galloglasses says:

    There will have to be a crusade, it cannot be otherwise, the Pope needs to declare it! Europe cannot fight this horror with the secular mindset on war, the secularists cannot fight an enemy who sees the conflict as a holy war!

    The numbers of the Barbarians within Christendom is in the millions, yes, but not enough to overwhelm the native population, not enough to defeat us if we act now, even with the birth rates. Thank God for our eastern brothers who at least have sense, now if only the Germans and the French could rediscover their balls we can at least stem the flow long enough to form a battle plan.

  30. antigon says:

    Don’t need to depose him qua. Merely need to invoke the annulment principle that since even a Sacrament (of Matrimony anyhow) can’t take if one or both of those who pledge it haven’t grasped its implications, that surely applies to papal abdications.
    Sorry Papa B, Your legitimate Holiness, time to return to work.

  31. Dorothy says:

    I will later.

  32. Chloe says:

    Would someone PLEASE translate this! It’s wonderful anyway but how lovely to be able to follow it.

  33. parishonerusa says:

    I think that the first stop on the Crusade will need to be Rome where brave men depose the Pope who asked every Parish to house our mortal enemies. This was no act of ignorance; I know my enemy when I sees him. We need a Catholic Pope, period. How do we get one? I think that it might take a crusade because this Pope is in league with ISIS and I hope you all know that means they are all on the wrong side, enemies of Jesus Christ and friends of the adversary. To arms is no joke my friends, seriously, this will be coming to us if it hasn’t already. These liberals are getting random retarded drugged out wackos to shoot people randomly in order to enact legislation and take our guns. Be aware, they are on the march already.

  34. Aaron Baugher says:

    If we just had a pope who would offer indulgences to Crusaders.
