The new newness of the new! So shiny!

“New Evangelization!”

“New ecumenism!”

“New Rosary!”

New! title for a new! idea of a “retired” pope “emeritus!” Courageous! New!

And, btw guys, “Novus Ordo Missae” means “New Order of the Mass,”

…and every day we hear from you guys about how all this “new” stuff is fine, juuuuust fiiiiine…

In fact, its GREAT! It’s progress! It’s “development of doctrine”! It’s a throwing off of “outdated” ways of “being Church” (or whatever it is you people say)…

New! New! New! Wheeeee! The newness of new things! So shiny!

So, how then are you not “neo-Catholics”?

Guys, “neo” just means “new”.

Maybe that’s confusing to you. It’s Greek, after all.

    My apologies — I hadn’t noticed your comment until just now.

    Check out the following YouTube videos, and note that in the description, these services are said to be “traditional” Episcopal:

    Rite I:

    Rite II:

    And here’s the Book of Common Prayer (Rite I begins on page 323, Rite II on page 355):

    Is that so? About the Anglican Book of Common Prayer? I wouldn’t be surprised, but I’ve not heard that one!

    I like the New Oxford Review. Except that it’s title is difficult to pronounce.

    I’m reflecting upon the new humble, formerly known as narcissism.

    I am just a simple man, so can anybody explain to me how it is that these Neo-Catholics like Fr Longeneker:

    1) Can criticize trads for intolerance of other views and yet be the first to shut down the comm boxes on their own blogs?

    2) Can criticize trads for self-righteousness in the most self-righteous manner and yet see no irony in that fact?

    3) Can criticize trads for adherence to the fundamentals of Catholic dogma, while seeing no irony in their adherence to the fundamentals of modernism, papolotry, and daily fluctuations in the Zeitgeist?

    4) Is their fear to engage in open debate without banning, blocking and ridiculing really due to the fact that they know the incoherence of their position or are they just cowards?

    Shiny, happy people! Holding hands! And stuff!

    They’re an oddly sensitive bunch. I keep reading online that we Traditionalists (i.e., Catholics) are the ones who are so easily upset, but when you point out that the Novus Ordo is a direct copy of the invalid Episcopal service (straight out of the Book of Common Prayer), their heads explode. U.S. “Catholics” gasp with disbelief when you tell them that No, you don’t hang on Pope Francis’ every word, didn’t get excited when he visited the States. And they faint when you show them a word cloud of his speech to Congress and point out that the Vicar of Christ never once mentioned Christ by name.

    The liturgy and post-conciliar theology do indeed comprise an entirely new, different religion.

    The church will close its churches to focus on and expand
    its much more profitable hospital, nursing home, and children’s daycare operations. The “church buildings” that remain can be
    transformed into community centers, unless sold for a profit. This new model of church will do better financially.

    Thank-you Hilary! May Our Lord Jesus and His Holy Mother Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother Of The Angels, Queen Of Heaven,
    Sorrowful Mother, Protect and defend you and all of The Faithful.
    Michael Matt and The Remnant thank-you. Ann Barnhardt May Our Lord Bless and keep you!
    I pray that I faithfully defend The True Faith. May we not fear. O Holy Spirit help us. St. Michael The Archangel defend us in battle.
    Mea Culpa Mea Maxima Culpa. Most Sacred Heart Of Jesus Have Mercy On us!

    Don’t forget the one that set the wrecking-ball in motion, the New Pentecost, prophetically announced by Pope St. John XXIII the Good.

  12. Anton says:

    Not to mention…
    Nova Vulgata,
    novus Codex Iuris Canonici,
    “New Vocations for a New Europe”,
    Neo-Catechumenal Way,
    “a new springtime of the human spirit” (1995),
    “a new springtime in the Church” (1998),
    New Oxford Review,
