Watch this until you understand. No matter how many times it takes.
He’s there. He is there at the Novus Ordo Mass.
IF there is absolutely no alternative, MOVE, but until you have moved – HE IS THERE. Go. Comfort Him. Tell Him you love Him. Weep salty tears as He is ignored and desecrated. Comfort Him. LOVE HIM.
He isn’t a philosophy. He isn’t a codex. He isn’t an aesthetic. He isn’t even a Rite. He is A DIVINE PERSON. And He loves YOU personally, and infinitely. What He wants to give you for all eternity – the reason He made you – is so good that it is, for now, completely beyond your comprehension. But you have to love Him, and love Him personally, and that means being willing to suffer with Him in His Passion.
Please, please, please – while you still can – go to Him and love Him, even in an illicit yet valid Novus Ordo Mass IF IF IF that is all that is available to you.
Remember, what Longinus gave Him to drink wasn’t poison – it was vinegar. Bitter, to be sure, but NOT poison. Sound familiar??
In thy sight are all they that afflict Me; My heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with Me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort Me, and I found none.
And they gave Me gall for My food, and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink.
Psalm 68: 21-22
