St. Peter Canisius on Sodomy


1.      And what is extant in Holy Scripture touching the sin of Sodom and the punishments thereof?
The men of Sodom, says Scripture, were very naught, and sinners before God too, too much: This horrible and abominable sin Saint Peter and Saint Paul do reproveyea nature herself abhors itand the Scriptures also declare the greatness of so foul a wickedness, in these words:  The cry of the Sodomites and the Gomorrians is multiplied, and their sin is aggravated too, too much. For which cause the angels speak thus unto the just man, Loth, who greatly abhorred the outrageous filthiness of the Sodomites:  We will destroy this place, because the cry of them hath increased before our Lord, who hath sent unto us to destroy them. Therefore our Lord rained down upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire, from out of heaven, and overthrew those cities and all the country about. Neither does Scripture leave untouched the causes which moved the Sodomites, and may also move others to this so grievous a sin. For thus we read in Ezekiel (16:49): Behold this was the iniquity of Sodom thy sister: pride, fulness of bread and abundance, and the idleness of her and her daughters: and they did not stretch their hand to the needy and poor.
And of this vice which can never be sufficiently detested,  they are guilty who do not fear to break the Law of God, yea and the law of nature written in Leviticus, (18.22&23) which is this: Cum masculo non commiscearis coitu femineo, quia abominatio est. Cum omni pecore non coibis, nec masculaberis cum eo. Which sin if it be committed, we are admonished in the same place, that the very earth is polluted with such horrible and abominable lusts, and that God’s wrath is very much provoked against the people, and that the crime is to be punished with death. For which cause St. Paul doesn’t only once rebuke the liers with mankind, but often. He condemns also unclean and effeminate persons. Of which one was Onan son of Judas, who could not escape the present revenge of God, for that he sinned against his own body, and worse than any beast, would violate the honesty and order of nature.

Fr. Campbell's Sermon where he asks, "What is killing America?"


Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, June 28, 2015

“That you might inherit a blessing” (1Pet.3:9b)


Our Covenant with God is sealed in the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, our eternal High Priest. As Jesus raised the cup of wine at the Last Supper, He said to His Apostles:

“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which shall be shed for you” (Lk.22:20).

But there was an Old Covenant. What happened to the Covenant that God made with the Israelites at Mount Sinai, when He gave the Ten Commandments to Moses? According to St. Paul, it became obsolete:

“Now in saying ‘a new covenant,’ he (God) has made obsolete the former one; and that which is obsolete is near its end” (Heb.8:13).

So the claim made by John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis Bergoglio, that the Mosaic Covenant is still in effect, directly contradicts Holy Scripture. There is only one valid Covenant, to which the individual is admitted through Baptism.

Those who are not baptized cannot be saved, because they have not taken advantage of the amazing offer made by God’s Divine Son, Jesus Christ. I guess it was too much to ask – repent, believe and be baptized. The world has turned away from God, refusing His generous offer of a blessed eternity in Heaven, and has chosen instead the devil’s option – an eternity of unimaginable horror and suffering in Hell.

Why did God find it necessary to establish a new Covenant? Because the Law “given through Moses” had no power of itself to save, whereas “grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” (Jn.1:17). The original Covenant was a provisional one, to be fulfilled with the coming of the promised Messiah. In any case, the Mosaic Covenant was broken and finally rejected by the Jews. 

The original covenant is spelled out in detail in Sacred Scripture in the Books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. God’s blessings would be upon the people if they kept His Holy Commandments. But there would be curses, or woes, punishments for those who failed to keep the Covenant:

“But if you do not heed me and do not keep all these commandments, if you reject my precepts and spurn my decrees, refusing to obey all my commandments and breaking my covenant… I will punish you with terrible woes…” (Lev.26:14-16).

The covenant woes of Leviticus are grouped in four sets of seven chastisements.  If the people failed to repent after the first chastisements, they would suffer seven more severe punishments: “If you do not obey me I will punish you seven times more for your sins” (Lev.26:18). 

If they were still unrepentant, they would suffer seven more punishments until God’s patience would be exhausted, and they would have to endure the final set of seven terrible woes. Israel’s ultimate act of defiance against God was its rejection of Jesus Christ as the promised Messiah, which broke their Covenant with God and merited for them the final set of woes. No doubt the Scribes and Pharisees knew what Jesus meant when He invoked the covenant curses upon them, declaring that “all these things will come upon this generation” (Mt.23:33-36).
 
Because Jesus Christ established a New Covenant in His Blood, the Church is now the New Israel, and there is only one valid Covenant to which all must belong who hope to be saved. As St. Paul says in Romans: 
 
“Christ is the consummation of the Law unto justice for everyone who believes” (Rom.10:4). 
 
Then what’s killing America? Why is America about to experience its share of the woes pronounced against Israel? Because America has bonded itself to Israel, and will share in its punishments! The infamous Scofield Bible has borne its bitter fruit. The evangelical preacher, John Hagee, claims that God’s words to Abraham – “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you” – are addressed to the Jews of the modern state of Israel, whereas those who inherit Abraham’s faith are his true heirs, that is, Christ and His Church. Blood descent from Abraham counts for nothing. But Hagee insists:
 
“This is God’s foreign policy statement for Israel, that has never changed… When you as a nation begin to do practical acts of kindness that bless the Jewish people, the miracle power of God begins to explode in your life… Christians in America stand united for Israel today, tomorrow, and forever. Let the word go forth from this place tonight that the unity of fifty million Evangelicals and seven million Jews in America is a match made in Heaven.”
 
The outspoken Christian convert from Judaism, Brother Nathaniel, who reports these things on his website, says that it is a match made – somewhere else, and that the Jews are dragging the deluded Evangelicals down there with them. “Unite with God’s enemies, and you’re headed for Hell,” warns Brother Nathaniel (realjewnews.com). 
 
This is what is killing America! This is what is killing the Church that unites itself in false worship and false brotherhood with the Jews, instead of preaching the Gospel to them, the only means of their salvation – the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. But we do not have to go down with the ship! St. John in his Apocalypse tells us what we must do, and this becomes all the more urgent in the light of the latest ruling of the Supreme Court concerning same sex marriage: 
 
“And I heard another voice from heaven saying: ‘Go out from her, my people, that you may not share in her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached even to heaven, and the Lord has remembered her iniquities’” (Apoc.18:4,5). 
 
We must be true to our Covenant with God. The time has come for us to really live the promises of our Baptism, and show that we are citizens of Heaven, and not slaves of Hell. Our true Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ; our true Mother is Mary Immaculate, our Heavenly Queen. If, by the grace of God, we obey His Commandments, our Covenant with God is secured, for
 

“the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin” (1Jn.1:7).

Between Scylla and Charybdis Lies the Straight and Narrow Path



The Encyclopedia Brittanica Online describes Scylla and Charybdis as follows:





in Greek mythology, two immortal and irresistible monsters who beset the narrow waters traversed by the hero Odysseus in his wanderings described in Homer’s Odyssey, Book XII. They were later localized in the Strait of Messina. Scylla was a supernatural female creature, with 12 feet and 6 heads on long, snaky necks, each head having a triple row of sharklike teeth, while her loins were girdled by the heads of baying dogs. From her lair in a cave she devoured whatever ventured within reach, including six of Odysseus’s companions. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Books XIII–XIV, she was said to have been originally human in appearance but transformed out of jealousy through the witchcraft of Circe into her fearful shape. She was sometimes identified with the Scylla who betrayed her father, King Nisus of Megara, out of love for Minos, king of Crete.


Charybdis, who lurked under a fig tree a bowshot away on the opposite shore, drank down and belched forth the waters thrice a day and was fatal to shipping. Her character was most likely the personification of a whirlpool. The shipwrecked Odysseus barely escaped her clutches by clinging to a tree until the improvised raft that she swallowed floated to the surface again after many hours. Scylla was often rationalized in antiquity as a rock or reef. Both gave poetic expression to the dangers confronting Greek mariners when they first ventured into the uncharted waters of the western Mediterranean. To be “between Scylla and Charybdis” means to be caught between two equally unpleasant alternatives.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
During the hundred years or so before the Eclipse of the Church began in 1958, the Vicar of Christ began to prepare the faithful for the onslaught they would have to endure when they would be without a shepherd to guide them along the straight and narrow path. By means of encyclicals, bulls, letters, locutions, and every other means at their disposal, the true Popes laid down what would be needed for the Catholics of our days to make it safely through the treacherous waters of the Great Apostasy. Ultimately, providentially, providing us with the codification of Canon Law in 1917, within days of the beginning of Our Lady's apparitions in Fatima where she warned us that the Apostasy was about to begin. Was this a coincidence? Of course not!

This Code of Canon Law provides the Catholic with EVERYTHING he needs to make it safely to the port of heaven. There is no need to understand and interpret Divine Law, Theology, Philosophy, or Ecclesiology in order to remain in safe waters. All one need do is consult the Code of Canon Law and OBEY IT.  In the words of Pope Benedict XV who promulgated it:

The most provident of mothers, the Church, enriched by Her Divine Founder with all the notes befitting a perfect society, from the very beginning of Her existence, when, obeying the mandate of the Lord, She commenced to teach and govern all nations, undertook to regulate and safeguard the discipline of the clergy and the Christian people by definite laws.

In process of time, however, particularly when She achieved Her freedom and grew greater and more widespread from day to day, She never ceased to develop and unfold the right of making laws, which belongs to Her by Her very constitution. She did this by promulgating numerous and various decrees emanating from the Roman Pontiffs and Ecumenical Councils, as events and times suggested. By means of these laws and precepts, She made wise provision for the government of the clergy and Christian people, and, as history bears witness, wonderfully promoted the welfare of the State and civilization...

Therefore, having invoked the aid of Divine grace, and relying upon the authority of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, of Our own accord and with certain knowledge, and in the fullness of the Apostolic power with which we are invested, by this Our Constitution, which we wish to be valid for all times, We promulgate, decree, and order that the present Code, just as it is compiled, shall have from this time forth the power of law for the Universal Church, and We confide it to your custody and vigilance.

But in order that all concerned may be able to have a thorough knowledge of the regulations of the Code before they begin to be binding, We ordain that they shall not come into effect until Pentecost day next year, i.e., May 19, 1918.

Notwithstanding all contrary regulations, constitutions, privileges, even those worthy of special and individual mention, and notwithstanding contrary customs, even though they be immemorial, or whatever else may run counter to this Constitution.

For no one, therefore, is it lawful willingly to contradict or rashly to disobey in any way this Our constitution, ordination, limitation, suppression or derogation. If anyone should dare to do so, let him know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul.

Given at Rome, from Saint Peter‘s, on the Feast of Pentecost of the year one thousand nine hundred and seventeen, the third year of Our Pontificate.

In the midst of this Apostasy through which the Bark of St. Peter must travel in our times, the faithful are faced with this exact situation: people left and right willingly contradicting and rashly disobeying the law given by the Vicar of Christ, which is to say, GIVEN BY CHRIST HIMSELF. We must stay on the straight and narrow path that leads to salvation. We must avoid the dangers on either side.

Among those who consider themselves Traditional Catholics and who reject the church of Antichrist that poses as the Catholic Church, most have generally veered off to one side or the other, lured by one of two errors that lie just on the edge of the narrow path that lies between them. One of these groups is composed of those who have felt called to "save" the remnant Church by taking it upon themselves to consecrate bishops without papal mandate, thus bringing automatic excommunication upon themselves and upon the men they consecrate. This is clearly laid down in Canon Law and only by a great deal of circumlocution do they convince people that it is acceptable to disobey the clearly defined laws of Holy Mother Church. Please go to this link to read a very thorough explanation of the absolutely clearly defined mind of the Church on the matter:

Beware of Unauthorized Shepherds


However, the other group goes to the opposite extreme and denies that any priest has any jurisdiction if he ever said the novus ordo even once and they contradict Canon Law by denying that such priests can have their censures lifted. This view also goes against Canon Law and is equally harmful in that it prevents people from availing themselves of Sacraments and Mass from undoubtedly valid priests who were sent by Holy Mother Church to tend Her flock. Please see my article Canon Law, The Great Apostasy, and the Sacraments for a complete explanation of this.

The result of these two dangerous errors is this: Instead of the faithful seeking out priests who were duped by the novus ordo and might be convinced to return to the True Mass and Faith, we have people with no jurisdiction consecrating and ordaining others with no jurisdiction all of whom calling down automatic excommunication upon themselves according to the explicit Canons mentioned in the article above. If people had sought out true priests and tried to get them to abandon the novus ordo we might have been able to turn the tide of the apostasy and gained the upper hand. Instead we had SSPX, CMRI, SSPV, and who knows how many others bringing about chaos - the precise situation that Pope Pius XII warned would happen if men were to begin consecrating bishops without papal mandate. Do not try to deny that CHAOS is exactly what we have. St. Augustine defined peace as The tranquility of order which is exactly the opposite of what we have on our hands.
But - it is not too late. I urge people to seek out elderly priests who might have expressed some dissatisfaction with Bergolio. This is one thing we can be thankful for - Bergolio is so over the top that anybody of good will is now fed up. Find such priests and tell them about what you know; about the Great Apostasy and the invalid Novus Ordo etc. We must put an end to this chaos. We must realize that a man who was not sent by the Church is a usurper just as much as Roncalli, Montini, Luciani, Wojtyla, Ratzinger and Bergolio.

If you are dying, you are permitted to ask such jurisdiction-less priests for absolution. Otherwise, they should be avoided in terms of the Sacraments. Find a priest who WAS sent and try to bring him back.

In the meantime, we must stay on the straight and narrow path and avoid the monsters on either side if we want to arrive safely at the port of heaven. May Our Lady, Help of Christians, see us safely there!

Fr. Campbell's Sermon: The Way of Truth Maligned (hammering Zionism as an enemy of the Church)


(NB: The diagram above is my addition. It is NOT part of Fr. Campbell's sermon.)

Third Sunday after Pentecost, June 14, 2015
“The way of truth maligned” (2Pet.2:2)

Looking into the future with a prophetic eye, St. Peter, the first Bishop of Rome, and our first pope, warns us against “lying teachers” and “destructive sects”:

“Among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their wanton conduct, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned. And out of greed they will with deceitful words use you for their gain. Their condemnation, passed of old, is not made void, and their destruction does not slumber” (2Pet.2:1-3).

St. Paul describes in strong language, some of which I do not include here, the sinful state of those who have abandoned the true faith and the worship of God:

“And so they are without excuse, seeing that, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless minds have been darkened… And as they have resolved against possessing the knowledge of God, God has given them up to a reprobate sense, so that they do what is not fitting, being filled with all iniquity, malice, immorality, avarice, wickedness; being full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity; being whisperers, detractors, hateful to God, irreverent, proud, haughty, plotters of evil; disobedient to parents, foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. Although they have known the ordinance of God, they have not understood that those who practice such things are deserving of death. And not only do they do these things, but they applaud others doing them” (Rom.1:21;28-32).

You don’t have to say a lot to be a false prophet. You can do it with one picture. Just ask Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn. We are being programmed to accept situations like Jenner’s as the “new normal”. For years we have been exposed to gross moral depravity by the TV and the other media. We watch at the peril of falling into mortal sin, which is worse than any plague. Anthrax, Aids, or Ebola, can kill the body, but can’t touch the soul. Mortal sin means death to both body and soul in Hell for all eternity, unless by God’s grace one is able to repent. Those who don’t fight courageously become blind to the truth, and fall into the grievous errors of the corrupt society around them.  

False prophets abound. Think of the “lying teachers” and “destructive sects” created by the Scofield Bible. Seeking to alter the Christian view of Zionism (the re-establishment of Jewish sovereignty in the land of Israel), the Jewish Zionists have succeeded brilliantly by promoting a pro-Zionist subculture within Christianity. They commissioned Cyrus Scofield (1843-1921) to re-write the King James Version of the Bible by inserting Zionist-friendly notes in the margins, between verses and chapters, and on the bottoms of the pages. The Scofield Bible (1909) became the standard for interpreting scripture in Protestant churches, seminaries, and Bible study groups. And they all followed like sheep, including the famous TV evangelists of our time, Billy Graham, Hal Lindsay, Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Joel Osteen and their like. And they in their turn, with their enormous following, have led the whole country into vassalage to the Godless modern State of Israel. Deceived themselves, they have become “lying teachers”. How the Jewish Zionists must gloat over their mind-boggling achievement.

St. Paul in his Epistle to the Galatians contradicts the claims of the Scofield Bible:

“The promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. He does not say, ‘And to his offsprings,’ as of many; but as of one, ‘And to his offspring,’ who is Christ… For you are all the children of God through faith in Christ Jesus” (Gal.3:15b,16).

This makes it clear that to carry the blood of Abraham in one’s veins, or to be a believing Jew, is of no advantage to those who do not have faith in Christ. And Scofield and the Oxford University Press are liars when they try to prove that those who are known today as “Jews” are the heirs to the promises of Abraham. The Jewish religion today is not the true religion of the Jews of the time of Christ, but the false Talmudic Judaism which blasphemes Jesus Christ and deifies the Jewish race. The promises God made to Abraham are fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

The Jewish Zionists, in the dark themselves, have no interest in promoting a true understanding of the Scriptures. And who would have thought that the “Bible believing Christians” would have stumbled after them into the darkness? Amazing as it seems, those pompous TV evangelists with so much to say, have strayed far from the truth which they think they have found in the pages of the Holy Bible. They should take note of St. Peter’s warning (concerning St. Paul’s letters) that “there are certain things difficult to understand, which the unlearned and the unstable distort, just as they do the rest of the Scriptures also, to their own destruction” (2Pet.3:16).

Standing up in Jerusalem on the First Pentecost, St. Peter spoke to the Jews of the “promise” given to Abraham, which is fulfilled in Jesus Christ: 

“‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For to you is the promise and to your children and to all who are far off, even to all whom the Lord our God calls to himself.’ And with very many other words he bore witness, and exhorted them, saying, ‘Save yourselves from this perverse generation’” (Acts2:38-40).

St. Paul tells us of the true children of Abraham:


“Know therefore that the men of faith are the real sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, announced to Abraham beforehand, ‘In thee shall all the nations be blessed.’ Therefore the men of faith shall be blessed with faithful Abraham” (Gal.3:7-9).

Is Bergolio the Antichrist or the Beast?






For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility.
The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace.
A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a "pause in politics," Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

The Year the World Stumbled - Fr. Campbell's Sermon for 2nd Sunday after Pentecost



Second Sunday after Pentecost, June 7, 2015

The Year the World Stumbled 

Each day during the Octave of Corpus Christi, we commemorate the mystery of the Holy Eucharist, pondering the words of Our Lord: “Amen, amen I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you” (Jn.6:54). Life? Jesus speaks not of the natural life shared by every descendent of Adam and Eve, but of the supernatural life, the spiritual life, the life that comes with Sanctifying Grace through Baptism. We are sons of God by adoption, sharing His life through grace. We are made holy, united in a holy union with the angels and the saints. We are alive! And this life is sustained in us by eating the Bread of Life in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. This life is not given to those who have refused the Lord’s invitation to the Wedding Feast.

The natural man knows nothing of the life promised by Our Lord. After Jesus offered His disciples His flesh to eat and His Blood to drink many of them walked away. Jesus explained to the Apostles, “This is why I have said to you, ‘no one can come to me unless he is enabled to do so by my Father’” (Jn.6:66). When He asked the twelve if they would also leave, Peter answered: “Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast words of everlasting life, and we have come to believe and to know that thou art the Christ, the Son of God” (Jn.6:69,70).

The Apostles had faith, but the natural man, the man without faith, cannot understand the things of the spirit. Those who do not have faith are like zombies, who do not know they are dead. Not only do they not understand spiritual things, but they oppose them, persecuting the children of God. As Jesus says, “He who is not with me is against me; and he who does not gather with me scatters” (Lk.11:23).

The natural man plans our lives for us – our education, our family life, our work, our clothing, our leisure, our entertainment. Most can no longer think for themselves, because he has also taken command of the language, “dumbing it down”, and loading it with words and phrases that disguise the greatest evil as something good, phrases like “pro choice”. Does a woman have a right to choose to kill her unborn child? The Lord’s Commandment says: “Thou shalt not kill!” The child in the womb is a precious human being who may someday be led to the Font of Baptism and be fed with the Bread of Life. But those who can’t get beyond the words “pro choice” cannot see the truth. Those who control our language control our thoughts.

In 1949 George Orwell published his prophetic novel, “1984.” Later he wrote an appendix in which he explained the principles of “Newspeak”, the language which, in the novel, was created to replace traditional English, which was being abandoned in the new world of English Socialism (IngSoc):

“The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought – that is, a thought diverging from the principles of IngSoc – should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words.” The great works of English literature would have to be translated into Newspeak, a task which “meant that no book written before approximately 1960 could be translated as a whole” (The Principles of Newspeak, newspeakdictionary.com).

What was it about 1960? Both Church and world stumbled. Our Lady’s Third Fatima Secret was to be revealed in 1960, but it was shelved by John XXXIII. The planned revolutionary council, Vatican II, which specialized in “doublespeak,” was about to begin. It would rewrite Church history and doctrine, downplaying practically everything written before 1960, and imposing the Vatican II variety of Newspeak upon unsuspecting Catholics throughout the world. As a result, most Catholics who follow the Newchurch speak a new impoverished language which renders them incapable of understanding traditional Catholicism. No longer able to think for themselves, they have become the brainwashed drones of Orwell’s novel.

“George Orwell saw not only the poverty but the danger of a language that had become purely contemporary. A language without roots, without the authority of generations implicit in its usages, is the perfect instrument for tyranny” (Joe Sobran, d. Sept. 10, 2010, We’re Losing Shakespeare, sobran.com).

So are we going to let them do this to us? How about a little righteous indignation against those who are harassing our souls! There is a place for just anger – not the irrational anger that causes us to lose control of ourselves and strike out at everyone – but righteous anger, Godly anger. Should we not be angry when confronted with their odious work – their ridicule, their lies, their blasphemies, their allurements, their seductions, their satanic music, their lewd performances, their places of carnal delights? Jesus Himself was filled with indignation at the Pharisees. And with righteous anger He threw the money changers out of the Temple.

So are we going to let them destroy our souls? That moral monster at the other end of the shameful image that flashes upon our computer screen is no friend, but an agent of Hell. May St. Michael and the Heavenly Armies strike at such and send them reeling into the bottomless pit where they belong!

But we have true friends with whom we share a spiritual language which is hidden from the worldly. That language is prayer. We can call upon Holy Mary, the Mother of God, to go to war for us against the Dragon, and upon a host of Heavenly Angels and Saints to pray without ceasing for our victory over the powers of Hell.


The Lord feeds us with His greatest gift, the Hidden Manna, the Bread from Heaven, the food of those who accept His invitation to the Wedding Feast: “Lo! Upon the altar lies, Hidden deep from human eyes, Bread of angels from the skies, made the food of mortal man… Thou who feedest us below! Source of all we have and know! Grant that with Thy saints above, Sitting at the feast of love, we may see Thee face to face. Amen. Alleluia” (St. Thomas Aquinas, Sequence of Corpus Christi).
