Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

How Properly To Bury the Alleluia

March 5th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Dr. K wrote a piece documenting the local burying of the alleluia at Sacred Heart. Well, needless to say, the photos show a ceremony lacking any liturgical decorum. The problem with liberals is that they worship community. No – community worships God. You can see a clear comparison when you look at the photos posted below (care of New Liturgical Movement). Now, I ask you, which seems to be more sacred?

So, in the photos from Sacred Heart, we see a rabble professing faith. In these photos above, we see a sacred occurrence. The only way one could find fault with these words is if one, indeed, worships community and human abilities over the awesome omnipresence of God Almighty. This is not what we are called to do as Roman Catholics. 
On a “tying everything together” note, the poem I used in the latest Cleansing Fire video release perfectly suits the comparison set here before you. If you have not yet watched the video, please do so. The poem which is featured is also copied below for your literary delight. I believe it has been chiseled onto the heart of every liberal in the diocese. It certainly reflects their mentality.
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church --
I keep it, staying at Home --
With a Bobolink for a Chorister --
And an Orchard, for a Dome --

Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice --
I just wear my Wings --
And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
Our little Sexton -- sings.

God preaches, a noted Clergyman --
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of getting to Heaven, at last --
I'm going, all along.
Sounds like the liberals have a new marching prancing hymn. 
Quick, someone email Marty Haugen and tell him we need a 
tune for these lyrics.

  1. This is a strange thing to me. Of course I have know that we don't sing "Alleluia" or the more formal "Hallelujah" during Lent. But until this year, I've never heard of doing anything about it other than not singing it.

    How common is this sort of ceremony of any kind?

  2. Gen says:

    It's not too common – one of those "fringe traditions" that died of unnatural causes in the 50's, 60's, 70's. I believe it was more common than it is now, but that it was always done along the lines of what occurred in this church, not Sacred Heart.
