The consecration of the Host happens at 51:47. The consecration of the Chalice happens at 52:32.
I cannot believe I am about to type these words.
The Pope DID NOT GENUFLECT after either consecration. He did a weird bow thing, but didn't feel the need to bend his knee to God Almighty, physically present in his hands upon the altar.
HE. DID. NOT. GENUFLECT.
This is absolutely stunning. And unprecedented.
Oh yeah, we're in deep, deep trouble.
But hey, all of you guys who are sending me emails whining about how I'm not nice, or something, go ahead and explain this one. He is perfectly physically sound. He FREELY CHOOSES to not reverence Our Lord in the Eucharist upon the altar.
Oh, and he also didn't genuflect to Our Lord in the Tabernacle when he went to Santa Maria Maggiore on Thursday morning, either. Um, how can a man truly love Our Lady if he doesn't first show even the slightest respect to her Son? Someone please explain that one to me.
Hey! I have an idea! Let's do a Pope watch. First one to see the Pope genuflect to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, and not to a Superfun Rockband church pastor, wins! In the mean time, everyone should pray for Pope Francis and that he learns to show Our Lord the tiniest bit of respect and GENUFLECT to Him after He comes down onto the altar, and whenever he approaches or crosses the plane of a Tabernacle in which Our Lord is physically present. I think that would be a great prayer intention for one and all.
I never occurred to me that my desire to do penance in reparation to Our Lord for the sacrileges of the world would include the consecration rubrics of THE POPE.
Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.
And here is a picture of the Tabernacle in the Sistine Chapel.
There’s nothing worse than a Catholic who sees him/herself as ‘more Catholic than the Pope’ Obviously our writer Ann is one of those. Pray for her. She really sounds unhinged and or demented.
I will also point out that the celebrant does not have to genuflect on entering and leaving if he is part of a processional, which of course is what took place.
I suspect the disgust at her overreaction is itself registering as overreaction.
I take it you’re not a fan of Mel Brooks?
I’m not sure it is a woman’s place to correct the pope.
It has been done. Google Catherine of Siena.
The world is so utterly screwed and lost through godless deception PING!
What does the Bible teach about when and how to genuflect?
The main guideline on the RF is to "discuss the issues all you want, but do not make it personal." Click on my profile page for more RF guidelines.
Also, posts containing potty language and references to potty language are pulled on all RF threads. All the posts on this thread which contained potty language - including yours - are being pulled.
This mabe a dumb question to some, but what exactly does the pope do? he cant save you, or forgive your sins, so what is there for?- just curious
Where in the Bible does it say that anyone should venerate "Our Lady" in order to respect her son?
It doesn't. Spoken by a Pharisee or Sadducee? Matthew 23 (New International Version)
"9. And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10. Nor are you to be called 'teacher,' for you have one Teacher, the Christ. 11. The greatest among you will be your servant. 12. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. 13. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
"24. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. 25. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. 27. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean. 28. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness."
oh please....for crying out loud, do you realize that your entire post said exactly nothing....a Demon????he is a Catholic Cardinal who was elected by his peers to lead THEM....wake up and get on a paranoia drug of some sort....pathetic!!
Ping for later
I am not Catholic, so I guess I cannot possibly hope to understand, but WHAT THE HECK DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING???
Following Christ is the most difficult SIMPLE thing a person can do on this earth. Don’t add to the Lord’s words and teachings with this kind of stuff.
he is the CEO of an institution of 1.3 billion people...he runs the show, he is the titular head of the CHRISTIAN church on earth....He is the Bishop of Rome and has the ordinary responsibilities there also.....a very busy guy
I just remembered something. Back in December there was a lot of stuff going around about her getting arrested and her websites going down for non-payment, etc.
Since then, the posts have gotten completely nuts like this. Her facebook page now is full of her posting mortgage spam and says it is no longer an official page but is still cross linked to the page linked in the original post.
Do you think someone seized her website when she didn’t pay and is trolling in her name?
This kind of stuff is just way over the top, even for her.
