Kingship of Christ & Pro-Life March



Denying the Kingship of Christ


Dear TIA,

Dr. Byrne, in her essay number 44 on the Dialogue Mass, has explained how it came about that a Novus Ordo Priest whose Mass I attended was able to assert on the Feast of Christ the King a few years ago that its significance was that it recognizes that “Christ reigns in our hearts.”

I sensed at the time that was just sentimental tosh, but now I understand how a mere change of tense in a translation has helped bring about the subversion of an entire teaching and ultimately the mission of the Church.

Dr. Byrne's work is outstanding in its clarity and rigour. Many, many thanks for publishing it on your invaluable site.

     Yours in Jesus Mary and Joseph,

     N.S.M., UK

Dr. Byrne responds:

Dear Mr. N.S.M.,

Atila Guimaraes forwarded your e-mail to me, and I am writing to thank you for your kind words about my latest article.

I fully concur with your findings: Priests in the modern Church generally have a problem with what was traditionally called the Social Reign of Christ the King. It is a doctrine that was buried with Vatican II and its supposed religious liberty for all. I once heard a Novus Ordo priest say that he found the idea of Christ as King “unhelpful” and went as far as to say that, if he had any say in the matter, he would abolish the doctrine altogether!

If you look at any Protestant Bible, you will see the same translation (“reigns”) as in the Bea version. Some even say “has reigned.” but none “shall reign.” That is because they do not believe that Psalm 46 of the Vulgate (Psalm 47 in Protestant versions) is meant to be a prophecy of the future establishment of the Church and the coming reign of Christ over the nations of the world.

St Jerome faithfully translated it as “regnabit” (shall reign) from the Greek version of the Septuagint. We can be confident that his translation is right because his work was guaranteed as authentic by the Council of Trent in 1546.

So now our Catholic priests have the same problem as the Protestants, not knowing the true meaning of the Scriptures.

     With best wishes,

     Dr. Carol Byrne

Inauguration Etiquette

TIA,

While signing his first executive orders, apparently President Trump breeched some sort of etiquette when gifting pens to the majority leader (I believe) and Mrs. Nancy Pelosi. Mrs. Pelosi (kindly, in my opinion) corrected him.

My question is, should one ever publicly correct one's superior, especially in such a public setting?

     Thank you for your response.

     C.D.

Dr. Horvat responds:

C.D.,

According to the information we found, Trump was signing the documents making his Cabinet nominations official. Each nominee’s document had a corresponding pen, and he, following tradition, gave those pens away as souvenirs to the people in the room.

Nancy Pelosi was there, among others. There was much bantering at the event and, it appears, Mrs. Pelosi was making a suggestion in the spirit of lightness.

Normally speaking, it is indeed a breach of etiquette to correct a superior. But since it was President Trump who was setting the tone for the event, it seems her comment was not a serious offense against courtesy, just an expression of her aggressive and unfeminine personality.

     Cordially,

     Marian Horvat, Ph.D.

Pro-Life March

TIA,

This was a beautiful testament to the truth of the priority of our Declaration of Independence, our unalienable God-given rights to "LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" that no man can take away - the latter two meaningless without the first!

Also please note how clean the street was after the march, which was a common comment that I saw on sites featuring this clip.

     Gary Morella

An amazing new time-lapse video shows thousands upon thousands of pro-life people marching for life through the streets of Washington D.C.

It’s always difficult to capture the exact number of people who participate in the March for Life, the rally and various pro-life events in the nation’s capital throughout the day.

But this tremendous video gives you a visual glimpse of the outpouring of pro-life support for the March for Life

From Tübingen, Germany


To Atila Sinke Guimarães

Hello,

II have just finished the study of Animus Delendi II- vol. V.

It is a very precious work and I want to thank you for this study.

It completes certain aspects of the New Church that I didn’t discover up to now: above all the Marxist aspect.

I give you some details about me; so you may perhaps see the importance of your study for me: I am Catholic (as before Vat II), living in Tübingen, I have seen Küng during speeches there, and every day when I go to my school I drive by his foundation, the Johanneum.

In my favorite café Prof. Ratzinger loved to eat apple pie after his readings; and Prof. Kasper taught here, too. Later he became Bishop of the little town about 10 km from Tübingen, where the Catholics were placed at the time of Napoleon – and where I live. It is a suburb of Tübingen. His Bishop successor is even worse than he: His doctor thesis was about ca. “The secularization of the Logos/the language.”

I would like to have some words from you.

Possible languages: German (of course), English. Spanish, French… I understand Italian.

     Best regards,

     B.Z., Germany

The Editor responds:

Hello Mr. B.Z.,

Thank you for your kind words.

I am glad that we have some points in common regarding the theses of Animus Delendi II, which deals with Secularization and Ecumenism.

Some time ago, I visited Tübingen and I was well impressed by its seriousness, calm and beauty. It is a good place for studies.

I wish you the best in your endeavors and I remain at your reach in the eventuality you need some help.

     Cordially,

     Atila S. Guimarães
