One, I was pushing a bit for the fun of it.

Still, Receptionism is problematic. I am not worried about what happens to the crumbs we can't find when cleaning up. What he gets himself into, He can get himself out of.

For that matter, I know my God is bigger than what any someone could do with a consecrated host during a Black Mass. I would be more worried about God's feelings about those that say they believe, but do not perceive.

When all is said and done, my Lord has promised to be present in the Sacrament—whether or not I or any one else believes.

You also seem to automatically reject dogma. While we are encouraged to work out our own salvation—for it is the Lord working in us—that does not mean we are free to go our own ways. The Bonds of Affection extend to our forebearers in the faith, too.

Still, remember that I was pushing a bit to stimulate something. Ultimately, it is Jesus who saves us, not our acceptance of anything.

The BCP (presumably in use at 103's church, though not JPII's) holds that:

quote:
Article XXIX: Of the Wicked which do not eat the Body of Christ in the use of the Lord's Supper
The Wicked, and such as be void of a lively faith, although they do carnally and visibly press with their teeth (as Saint Augustine saith) the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ, yet in no wise are they partakers of Christ...

"in no wise" is both comprehensive and emphatic - Satanists who seek either to use or to desecrate the Sacrament do not receive Jesus in any way whatsoever. They do not take him into their hearts, nor their souls, nor their mouths, nor their fannies.

...that is problematic.

The validity of a sacrament is not dependent on what humans say. The validity of a sacrament is dependent on what God says.

You really haven't got the hang of Hell; encouragement belongs in All Saints. 103 foolishly put something on a discussion board and then got annoyed when it was discussed.
I am intentionally going back a few pages to respond to this now.

Looking at some recent responses to my posts, it seems as if people don't recognize hellishness unless you use one of George Carlin's "Seven Dirty Words."

Nope, There are about 3 copies somewhere but most people adopt the BCP=BOE approach to it!

Also an update to the ebay host - the current bid price is:
£10,000,000.00
Wow! All the bids have been made by first time bidders with really randon names except one who tried to bid £100,000 and he/she has 38 sucessful bids but was outbid by another first time bidder.

How long will it be before Novus Ordo Watch takes notice?

Just to update 103's post, the wafer which reached £10 million and the one I mentioned yesterday with a 'Buy It Now' price of £1.99 have been withdrawn by eBay and the transactions cancelled.

Common sense, at least, has prevailed.

A great fourteen pages, but life moves forward.

I happen to possess a wafer consecrated by HH Pope John Paul III when he was still Cardinal Ratface. It was smuggled out of the Lateran [see how Traditional I can be... Whahahahaha!] by my Great Grandmother who, having ducked to escape the all-embracing clutch and hiss of -100 (-103's Great Grandfather), delivered body blows to the 6' 4" [shorter than I! Ha!] Guardians of the Sanctuary and threw herself through a stained glass window of St Margaret of Antioch [or some other minor canonisation] before escaping to full communion with the CofE and all stations west.

If the shipmates who consider themselves more catholic* than I do not forward to me

£1 000 000 000 000

(that's billion for our colonial brethren who have never managed the counting thing)

then I will personally arrange for Lucifer [i.e. the "Rev'd" Tony Bliar] to be loosed from his chains. MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh well PARDON ME sonny. Your name is "103" it's not "-103" but you just sign yourself with a "-". Forgive me for not reading your mind and knowing what 'twas you meant. Maybe you could learn from the lesson I teach my twelve year olds.... WRITE WHAT YOU MEAN.

OK, I might put it more kindly to them but, actually, I don't, so why should you get away with it?

Has it crossed your mind that some of us on this site have better things to do with our time than wonder whether teenage old-lady-beaters choose to spell their name with or without a "-"? Some of us are concered with serious matters, like people stealing our Lord from his (sorry, His) little cage above the altar. Some of we 6'4" Anglo-Catholics are engaged in protecting the MBS here.

If you wanna be wunna us, learnda speak propa.

I think the correct word is "scandal" rather than desecration. Consumer fraud adds a further tawdry air to the affair.

Which is what we do whenever we commercialize the sacred - be it with turnstyles and tacky plastic Jesuses in our cathedrals, Holman Hunt pictures in a 10 cent frame (not that they deserve more than a ten cent frame) sacred toenails of St Swithin, whoopee Spirit who flops you over in a rar-rah riot of quasi sexual frenzy and then flogs you a Tim LaHaye book to save your soul ...

God knows we walk all over the sacred in our hobnail boots, crunching loudly to drown out the still small voice or the sounds of silence ...

In other words all our traditions have serious fuckedness inbred and only when we dig around to find our own integrity of faith as small individuals and communities will we escape the noise of desecration

Hey 103, I have a question for you. It relates to this post in Purg, but I figured your answer might be Hellish.

My question is this: Do you already consider the sacrament at your church to be invalid, or are you going to wait until you jump ship to adopt that opinion?

Yes, The Bede's American Successor, "dis" is a dialect word in some dictionaries. If you wish to use it, I don't mind.

I just have an aversion to the practice of making verbs out of nouns, but that's another thread.

Actually, dis is a verb, according to the dictionary.

By the way, do you salt your vegetables, or do you apply salt to them?

If you can respect somebody, I don't see why you can't disrespect them. I confess when first I heard "disrespected" used as a verb, I was a little surprised.

If something is used by a significant number of people(whatever that is) to convey a uniform and accepted meaning, it is foolish to say it isn't a word. New words are added to dictionaries every day, because the language is in constant flux and growth. A truism I learned in school: a true lexicographer is a historian, not a lawgiver. If you find the word clumsy, ugly, or imbued with unacceptable connotations, then don't use it.

Firstly - get the link right! http://http:// indeed!

Secondly - Why do you think I'm jumping ship? I don't think that MY church has an invalid sacrament, but I think that churches with Women Priests, Common Worship Order 2 Mass, BCP Mass and churches that do not see the Sacrament as important enough to reserve inportant enough as a "Complete Sacrament"
I would never say that any sacrament is invalid sacrament, but I think there is such thing as a damaged sacrament. I feel that a lot of communions around the Anglican Communion are damaged, because some ministers DO NOT believe in Real Presence, Transubstatiation or what not, they believe it is just bread and wine. So how can I expect to believe that their communion is the same as the mass that I go to?
I refuse to accept that Women can possibly be ordained as priests so their mass is definatly not the same as the mass that I go to!

If I didn't have a problem with the Anglican Communion I wouldn't feel the need to leave, I'd be perfectly happy in my little AC Center which pretends it has nothing to do with the rest of the Church and does it's own little thing. But there is a problem and I feel that I should get out.

[Killing me] So that would rule out pretty much every Anglican church but your own?

So why not go play altar-dementor for the Catholics, then?

Well, 103. Oh pardon, despite what you've written that's not your name, apparently. Many apologies. (Anything else you write we're supposed to not take seriously? Just so we can get it right, you understand.)

I'd be glad to hear some clarification from some of our Catholic shipmates who can confirm, or not, that Anglican orders are not valid, from the perspective of the RCC. If Anglican orders are not valid, does it or does it not follow that Anglican sacraments are not valid? Or is there indeed, as 103 seems to imagine (perhaps rightly) a dispensation that allows for the Anglican holy communion he is part of at his own church to be considered 'valid' in a Catholic sense?

Or is he just wanting his wafer and eating it?

Well once you jump ship that will be what you sign up to since that is RC's official position. Your priest at the moment will be longer a priest in your eyes. Your new opinion would be that any bread blessed by an Anglican Priest is just a bit of bread.

So it's down to the personal beliefs of the individual minister? I doubt whether your future RCC instructors will agree. I wonder how you will feel in a year's time, when you realize that the cracker you attacked some woman over wasn't Jesus after all.

No matter what the answer to the first question is, the answer to the second is a definite Yes.

Even this "improperly catechized convert" (waves hi at Jennifer) knows that the Thirty-Nine Articles certainly don't. I'm sure there is some more modern expression of it in the C of E.

So masses offered using the BCP or CW - both approved liturgies - are "damaged" but those using whatever freaky unapproved liturgy your church prefers are not. Hmmmm.

So in your opinion the Mass is some sort of magic ceremony that gets spoilt if a Priest uses the wrong words? How weak is your God, that he is scared off by the BCP!

This, of course, is the heart of it. If -103's church were to cross the Tiber, it wouldn't be able to ignore the rest of the church and do its own little thing. Far from it. It'd have to respect the teachings of its heirarchy - even if it didn't agree with them, and use the approved liturgy - whether it liked it or not.

So -103's church, in trying to ape the Romans is, ironically, expressing a freedom the Romans would never allow. It's being remarkably Anglican, in fact.

I can just about believe that -103 is too young and stupid to appreciate that. (What am I saying? -103 is patently young, and is undoubtedly stupid!) But his priest, one assumes, isn't seventeen. So his priest, undoubtedly, is trying to have his wafer and eat it, even if -103 himself is oblivious.

I would if I could, but things are more complicated then that! At current I have no choice but to stick around at my church and I'll make the most of it, Until Benedict XVI, I would've hoped that the new pope would allow full communion between anglicans and RCs but that will not happen.
I'll get the fuck out when I can and then you can celebrate. Although, Us ACs could say the same about the evangelicals, why don't they get out of the CofE and join the baptists or the methodists?

... thus leaving the CofE to the MotR, prayer-book sorts who actually founded the sodding thing. That might actually be quite sensible. Although infinitely less fun, of course.

Bullshit. Unless your parents are forcibly dragging you into the church every week and sitting behind you on the altar with a gun pointed at your head, you damn well DO have a choice to go away. You may not be able to receive -- instead, you'll just have to sit in the pew and have it driven home just how catholic you are not, and how you are not even remotely part of Holy Mother Church, you're the ecclesial equivalent of a free church congregationalist to them, regardless of your protestations to the contrary -- but you fucking well can start going to your local RC parish. So you're a goddamned liar on top of it.

If I were routinely subjected to the evangelicals sucking Baptist dick the way you flounce around here sucking Roman dick I'd say the same things about them. At least they're not taking every chance available (and many that are not) to tell the Anglican Communion how much they suck and how they can't wait to get out of it, like you do, except you WILL NOT LEAVE. I am sick to death of hearing it. So either suck it up and live with where you are, which means that you shut the fuck up about how goddamned wonderful Rome is, or be a man, grow a set, and get the fuck out.

That's certainly true though.
