Now the United Sates Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB ) is stuck with their candidate, Donald Trump.  Trump will have been in office over a week, when this liturgy takes place.  Raymond Arroyo and EWTN try to do their best to disrupt the admonitions of Vatican II as practices by the Democrats.  On Thursday, January 12, Arroyo pointed out that Pope Francis did not accept Cardinal Mueller’s corrections to Amoris Laetitius, about saving the environment.  Another approach would have been to note the audacity of Mueller to publicly correctly the Holy Father.  U.S. Representative Sean Duffy was shocked that CNN aired something false about Donald Trump, with no concern with anything false aired about Hillary Clinton.  Ray Flynn, the Democratic former mayor of Boston criticized the Obamas for not leaving Washington D.C., giving their daughter a chance to graduate with her class.  Flynn also attacked Obamacare.  These are the sort of programs that eviscerate credibility of the USCCB.

 

The readings for this Sunday are about the Beatitudes, something contrary to the Trump campaign.  The Faithful do well to recall Matthew 5:3, the Antiphon, Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!  The prayer is not to fall victim to the faults of the Trump campaign.  The art of a con artist is to make the mark think someone else is being marked, all the while he is the victim.  If the electorate that voted Trump into office realized how he is conning them, the repercussions may be severe for both church and state.

 

 

Material above the solid line draws from material below the solid line.  Those uninterested in scholarly and tangential details should stop reading here.  If they do, however, they may miss some interesting material.

As a teaching moment, Funerals uses this section of Matthew as one of the texts for Funerals for Adults.[15]  Pastoral Care of the Sick uses the same section.[16]  These verses offer consolation to those put upon in the social order.  Divine order reigns over not only history and human society, but also the universe.

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the Gloria, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “that we may honor you with all our mind.”[48]  The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is  Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs! (Matthew 5:3).[49]  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 Let them praise the name of the LORD; for he commanded, and they were created (Psalm 148:5).[50] 

 

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.  I am the founding president of the Hampton Roads, from which the Number 1 Movie January 15, “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.” 

 

By July 31, I had identified a pattern of attack on Pope Francis by Arroyo.  The attack is on what the Pope is preaching about climate change and capitalism.  In the United States Republicans have firm opposition to such sermonizing, as the Trump administration will show . . . or not.

 

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.
