Raymond Arroyo continues to attack the Papacy.  Thursday, February 16, 2017, Arroyo hosted Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-Kiun who disagreed with the Pope cooperating with the Chinese Communist government.  Nothing was said about President Donald Trump in cahoots with Communist Russia.  Arroyo certainly does not like the idea of letting divorced and remarried people licitly take the sacraments.  Arroyo had the Papal Posse hard at work, again, namely Father Gerald Murray and Robert Royal.

 

The Liturgy of the Word is about going forth from the land of your kinsfolk i.e. pre-Vatican II customs, to land I will show you (Genesis 12:1) in the new policies of Pope Francis.  These are tough time in the Church, Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you (Psalm 33:22).  Bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God (2 Timothy 1:8b).

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the Gloria, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “with spiritual insight made pure.”[21]  The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you. (Psalm 33:22)[22]  Between November 25, 2011 and November 25, 2012, Personal Notes systematically examined the illiterate 2011 Missal.  For a more thorough examination of the illiterate 2011 Roman Missal, go to 1610 Missal: Thirty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time 121125.pdf/htm at http://www.western-civilization.com/CBQ/Personal%20Notes/Personal%20Notes.htm.

 

 

This is a call for grace that some Black Baptists bring to mind with Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved; [sic])” (Ephesians 2:5).[23] 

 

Addenda

 

Due to greater responsiveness at the National Catholic Reporter blog, beginning with the Fourth Sunday in Lent, Reading 032B, March 15, 2015, my interest began shifting from annotating my index here, to engaging conversation there.  I may keep up the Bibliography, but without further comment.  Time will tell. 

 

On Wednesday, December 28, 2016, I discovered that my web site, www.western-civilization.com was receiving 1000 hits per day, from the United States, most of which were for these readings.  That complicates my priorities, priorities that require balancing between developing these Personal Notes, engaging writing on the National Catholic Reporter at https://www.ncronline.org/blogs/ncr-today, developing a Cleveland Organizing Branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), attending to my archival resources at the Western Reserve Historical Society, and preparing my 1972 dissertation, “Cleveland and the Negro following World War II” for publication at least on the web.  On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, I met the Lorain County Section, National Council of Negro Women and think they might form yet another ASALH Branch.  I am the founding president of the Hampton Roads, from which the movie “Hidden Figures” arose, meaning that these priorities have potential consequences of note.

 

Raymond Arroyo, “The World Over,” on EWTN uses fear-mongering, rather than the Joy of the Gospel to entrance its viewers.  In the past, Arroyo has responded to my concerns, particularly the Reverend Robert A. Sirico, who rarely appears anymore, with his drivel.  Beginning, May 3, 2015, I intend to begin pointing out, here, the role fear, rather than joy, has in “The World Over.” 

 

As, on June 23, 2015, I prepared Reading 110B for the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary time for July 26, I decided to begin reading unread book reviews and articles from Theological Studies for two reasons.  The first is I have already read every article cited in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly.  The second is that traditionally Theological Studies articles have been more helpful to my prayer life.  I also began reading unread book reviews in the Biblical Quarterly.  When perusing the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, I sometimes call attention to what I underlined there.
