DISUNITED BY OUR CATHOLIC FAITH
The Paulists Fathers on the website of the new St. Patrick's Church, 1 state 'United by our Catholic faith and English language, we celebrate and live together the faith of Saints Peter and Paul founded in this holy city of Rome.'
This is false.Since those Catholics who did not interpret Vatican Council II as a rupture with the dogma EENS were told directly not to enter the Church or receive the Eucharist.There was a rupture with the Church of St. Peter and Paul as it was known to those saints and the Catholic Church down the centuries.
EVICTED BY ELDERLY CISTERCIANS SISTERS
So the American Paulist Fathers have replaced the liberal Irish Augustinian community at St. Patricks'.At the former Church of Santa Suzanna, Rome they were evicted by the elderly Italian Cistercian Sisters.2 The liberal American community which would attend Mass at Santa Suzanna would then be seen at different churches in Rome.
The Paulist Fathers who discriminate on the basis of ideology, and are not 'inclusive' of those who affirm and interpret Vatican Council II differently from them, were asked to leave the Church premises by the nuns.
DIVISIVE AND INTOLERANT LIBERALS
The Paulist Fathers are 'divisive'.I was a member of their church choir for a short time at St. Suzanna, before Fr. Greg Apparcel was the Rector.I would listen to the Prayer Intentions criticizing Pope John Paul II.
TURN LEFT AND GENUFLECT
When I would enter the Church at Santa Suzanna I had to turn to the left to genuflect towards the tabernacle, which was not in the center.There was no sense of the sacred at their Mass in English. It was my personal meditations and prayers which would keep there during Mass.
MASS IN ENGLISH WAS MORE SOCIAL THAN SACRED
The Paulist Fathers were good speakers, entertaining, but the Mass was Protestant and was more social then sacred.
May be it has been some 10 years or more since I have been inside that church .I did not know about the tension with the Cistercian sisters.
Cloistered sisters and a flamboyant, Protestant-Catholic, liberal American community - a bad mix.The Paulists appealed to Pope Francis but those Italian Sisters refused to be subdued.
I am not sure if there was only just one entrance for the Sisters and the American community. I used to see the Sisters there.Possibly there was no silence for them.
RUPTURE ON CHURCH DOCTRINE
Between the Paulist Fathers and me there was a rupture over doctrine on salvation and the receiving of the Eucharist.
For me "There are no physically visible cases of the BOD,BOB and I.I in 2018" nor " LG 8, LG 14, LG 16, NA 2, UR 3, GS 22 etc in Vatican Council II refer to only hypothetical cases " so Vatican Council II does not contradict the Syllabus of Errors but for Fr. Greg Apparcel and the other Paulist Fathers there is a rupture.Invisible non Catholics are visible exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.Those who do not use this irrational reasoning are not allowed to enter their Catholic church.
The website says 'We join in ecumenical collaboration with those of other Christian traditions to know and live our gospel faith most fully.' I laugh to myself when I read this.
"There are no physically visible cases of the BOD,BOB and I.I in 2018" nor " LG 8, LG 14, LG 16, NA 2, UR 3, GS 22 etc in Vatican Council II refer to only hypothetical cases " so when there are no exceptions to outside the Church there is no salvation, it means all the Lutherans and other Christians are on the way to Hell. This is how the Bible was interpreted over the centuries.So which 'gospel faith' do they refer to ?
The website says that they live their ' gospel faith most fully'.The Americans at the church of Santa Suzanna would vote Democrat and they would propagandize it. So many of them were addicted to television and liquor, divorced and remarried, others were living with friends who were not their married spouse...others believed they could not change their sinful lifestyle and God would still forgive them in the end.
NO RELIGIOUS BOOKS IN LIBRARY
Their library had no religious books. Not a single one. I went there in search of books in English.The category of books were restricted to romance and the usual pulp novels.Before Mass it was always announced that "this is a chance to meet new friends...".
The Vice Rector, who assists at the Caritas soup kitchen in Rome, would block someone receiving food, creating a hurdle. I know this first hand.
IDEOLOGICAL EXCHANGE OF PEACE AT MASS
While even the exchange of peace at Mass is selective among the lay congregation, unless your a liberal on EENS and Vatican Council II.
This was the hate I experienced personally from the priests. It was not the 'political hate' of the Jewish Left, but the negative feelings associated with dislike, resentment, anger,un-welcomeness,fear,not being one of us ...-Lionel Andrades
