    Gosh! I thought the first video was tremendous – this upgrade is even better! I love it!

    “Merciless attack!” and “God help us all” – fabulous!

    Thank you folks, for commenting on the updated video. Your high praise will be greatly appreciated by our video-master who has worked very hard indeed today to improve the About Us video, and create the advertisement.

    Thank you, video-master!

    Fantastic video and ad. Well done, video-master.

    I do hope somebody sends the video to Bishop Keenan, since he’s one of the “stars” LOL! He really needs to see that “God help us all” !!!!

    What a gifted video-master you’ve got yourself! That’s a fab video and advertisement. People are much more likely to listen to a short video than to trawl through pages of print. A sign of the times, I suppose.

    I thought the first version of the video was excellent, but I have to say this updated version is just perfect. If you remember, I made the suggestion (not criticism! LOL!) that editor was mostly looking away from the camera but in this version the popup words and pictures draw attention away from that and just make the whole thing gel more. I think it’s fantastic. Even better than the first one, and I thought THAT one was excellent!

    Roll on the rest of the videos. I am really looking forward to those.

    The About Us video is superb – fast moving, informative, and with that touch of Catholic Truth humour!

    I also liked the short advertisement. Also fast moving and keeps the attention. I hope it brings us many new bloggers!

      Hi Benedict,

      Suggest you go into town, Renfrew Street, to attend a traditional Latin Mass, offered by the priests of the Society of St Pius X – afterwards, join us in the tearoom. Just ask anyone to point you to the Catholic Truth people and we’ll treat you to your tea/coffee…. Sunday Mass begins at 10.30.a.m.

      Saint Andrew’s Church
      202 Renfrew Street

      Benedict,

      I second Editor’s suggestion of St Andrews (SSPX) Renfrew St.

      This is my 6th year of attending there, (time flies when you are having fun!) and it has been first rate. I have learned so much and taken up so much, regarding the practice of the Catholic faith – its like night and day compared to the Catholicism I grew up with.

      It would be very easy to get there from Partick area. Local trains run between Partick and Charing X (only 1 stop) and the Underground would take you from Partick (or Kelvin Hall) to St George’s X. Both are then just a short walk from the Church. There will be buses too.

    I will try and go sometime, I went to an FSSP parish in texas but I have never been to SPX. Since I live near St peter’s in partick I may try and go locally too – Is it a traditional parish

    April 17, 2018 at 11:30 pm
  • editor

    Benedict,

    St Peter’s is not a “traditional” parish. There is no such thing in Glasgow. All the parishes provide the Protestant-inspired novus ordo Mass. There are some traditional Masses available in a couple of parishes but you cannot escape modernism if you attend any parish in the archdiocese of Glasgow. Since you are commenting on this thread, I presume you’ve watched the video where I said plainly, in words of one syllable, that Catholics who continue to attend the new Mass are supporting the revolution against Christ and His Church. No question about it.

    As Gabriel Syme has pointed out, you’re a stone’s throw from the SSPX chapel, and Mass has recently been changed to the later time of 10.30.am so why you would even consider attending the new Mass – specifically designed to remove anything and everything objectionable to Protestants – beats me.

    Your call!

    Are there any other parishes that offer the TLM? I heard there were a few possibly ? I was told that the Mass was sung in St peters and presumed i was a High Mass – is this not the case?

    April 18, 2018 at 7:40 am
    • gabriel syme

      Benedict,

      A few parishes advertise “sung masses” but they are not TLMs, rather they are novus ordo masses which have (e.g.) the Kyrie, Creed and Pater Noster sung by a choir.

      I have not been to St Peter’s myself, but I presume this is what is offered there. (I used to go to St Aloysius, Garnethill, and that’s what their “sung mass” was).

      In terms of other TLM locations that I am aware of:

      1) St Brigids (Toryglen) offers a monthly First Saturday mass.

      2) Sacred Heart (Bridgeton) offers a weekly Sunday mass.

      3) Immaculate Heart (Balornock) offers several TLMs each week, including Sundays.

      4) There are occasional “one offs” at times, in various parishes.

      Unfortunately the local hierarchy, while better than their predecessors, are still not well disposed towards tradition, which is why Diocesan provision is so poor.

      This is also shown by the fact that they have ignored repeated requests from Una Voce to invite a “canonically regular” traditional order to the City, even despite struggling for priests and threatening to close parishes. Talk about cutting your nose off, to spite your face. In all of Scotland, there is only one FSSP priest (Edinburgh) and he has to share a building with a novus ordo congregation. This is indicative of the attitude of the hierarchy.

      In Glasgow and wider Scotland, the hierarchy’s chief concerns are (i) ecumenism and (ii) pleasing secular politicians, not restoring and advancing the faith.

      It would be worth your while to check out St Andrews (SSPX) – it is very popular and most of the diocesan priests who say the TLM can be found visiting at times!

      Additionally, this congregation is “going places” as shown by the fact that we had the full Easter Triduum this year, which was a first in my time.

    I should add I have been going to the cathedral since coming back from the USA. I have only just recently discovered an interest in the TLM and while I was in the States i attended it. So. I’m still learning and enjoying it. Ido have to say we had a very traditional orientated Novos ordo with regular homilies on the truths of the faith and no liberal ideas, so my experience isn’t like yours. The priest did the prayers at the foot of the altar and from the offertory it was ad orientem and often in latin. I know its not the same abut compared to what was on offer it was a relief there were no women ministers etc I will come visit the sspx

      Benedict,

      we had a very traditional orientated Novos ordo with regular homilies on the truths of the faith and no liberal ideas

      Unfortunately, while there are some good diocesan priests in Scotland, the typical novus ordo here is very far removed from what you describe here.

      I once attended a diocesan mass where the (obviously homosexual) priest behaved more like a stand-up comic than a minister of Christ.

      At another mass (Jesuits this time) I was horrified to see uniformed school children being used at Eucharistic Ministers.

      I will come visit the sspx

      An excellent decision!

      Remember, although the SSPX as an organisation has an irregular status, the Church authorities have clarified that Catholics can attend their chapels and receive all sacraments there.

      While there are some TLMs in Glasgow – as outlined by Gabriel Syme – a very good point was made to me recently by a parent who has sometimes attended one of those Glasgow parishes. He pointed out that there is a marked difference in the reverence at those Masses compared to the SSPX for this reason: the dignity of the Mass does not only depend on the priest (the priests in Glasgow who offer the TLM are very reverent, and, at least in one case, wholly orthodox in his preaching) but it depends also on the servers.

      Sadly, Una Voce does not seem to train the servers well and there tends to be whispering among them in the sanctuary during Mass, and sometimes a certain clumsiness. It is very distracting. The SSPX servers have been thoroughly trained and the entire experience is one of dignity. Right now, two small lads are being trained, so when they join the line of servers, there has been an occasional blip as they bumped into each other going into and out of the sanctuary, but that’s exceptional, not to say a tad amusing.

      One other thing. The Una Voce representative in Glasgow does not permit the “third Confiteor” to be said, because it is not included in the 1962 missal. I sent him the following article to explain why it is still permitted and desirable, but still, I’m told, it is prohibited in the Una Voce diocesan TLMs.
      http://molatinmass.blogspot.co.uk/2008/12/third-confiteor-controversy.html

      Read it to the end – written, NOT by any SSPX priest, note, but by an FSSP priest (they do pray the “third Confiteor”).

      As for the idea that there are some “traditional oriented novus ordo Masses” – this is a popular reason given for attending the new Mass. No matter how “reverent”, the fact is, that is not the litmus test. After all, Black Masses are very “reverent”. The question is, does the new Mass please God. Can it possibly please God, given that is has been stripped of central prayers and its essential sacrificial character? Remember, its creators, Archbishop Bugnini and Father Joseph Gelineau SJ were very open about their aim to remove everything Catholic from the new Mass, in order to make it acceptable and pleasing to Protestants, and to make it a “permanent workshop” – its purpose has been changed from offering true worship to God, to entertaining the people. http://ccfather.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/fr-joseph-gelineau-sj.html

      Fr Gelineau said, without apology, that we have to be clear: “… the Roman rite as we know it, has been destroyed.”

      If you think you are pleasing God by supporting this revolution, go ahead. I’m not risking my salvation!

    Thank you for all the information. I think I will go to the diocesan priest one in balornock, it has a very good reputation and the priest is lovely i’ve met him before. The priest in partick seems quite liberal and after going to Mass there i wont be back he sings everything loudly and it seems to be all about him no real reverence as you say
    However, i will try and get to the sspx one too. I hear There are other priests learning the TLM too… I believe, somewhere in the East end of Glasgow but yet to find out who. I have a sister there who is poorly and would take her as she wont go to the Novus mass Its sad the bishops wont accept tlm priests into the diocese – would that not take pressure off the novus priests?
    I am also looking for a god preacher or a scripture classto attend not sure if ther are any out there

      Benedict,

      Scripture classes are very dangerous places, which is why we are preparing a couple, maybe a few, of our planned short, educational videos to correct modernist errors in the study of Scripture.

      You’ll “learn” that anything supernatural in the Scriptures, e.g. miracles, or prophecies, was put there by the evangelists to prop up their claim that Jesus was God, long after Christ’s death. You’ll also be told that there is no historical basis for anything in the NT. All of which makes the NT writers liars and fraudsters.

      All lies, of course, but that’s the stuff of Scripture “study” these days.

      Enjoy!

        Madam Editor,

        Your post reminded me of something that happened at a church I used to attend when I lived in Beds. some years back. The Sunday Mass Gospel Reading was one we’re all very familiar with – the miracle of the loaves and fish.

        During his homily, the priest had a different take on what actually happened that day…. ‘there’s no way people would have travelled on foot over those distances in the searing heat without bringing supplies of food and drink with them’… he said. The gist of what he was telling us was that… ‘the people all sat down and shared out what they had with each other – that’s what the miracle was’… I see, so the Scripture Writers had it all wrong then?

        What’s with these modernists, that they just have to sow doubt, error, confusion, dissent and disobedience wherever they tread?

        April 19, 2018 at 11:17 am

        Pat,

        That’s one of the favourites, the miracle of the loaves and fishes. It’s the one they find easy to undermine and deny.

        Preachers like him are also to be found undermining dogma in the same way. How often have I listened to young priests telling the “old joke” about a group of people of various faiths being shown around heaven. When they get to a certain room, St Peter tells them to “ssssh, because that’s where the Catholics are and they think they’re the only ones here.”

        Guffaws from the brain-dead congregation, who are totally unaware of what their priest has just said which is, in effect, choose whatever religion you like, no need to be a Catholic – God doesn’t mind.

        Did I say “brain-dead”? I mean to say “clueless, idiots, brain-dead, and then some”!

        April 19, 2018 at 1:37 pm
  • Benedict McConville

    I think it would depend on the priest to be honest and not all of them would be comfortable or dare I say competent in teaching the scriptures from what I have heard . I have a contact who says her priest Fr Neil something does a scripture class and is supposed to be very, good and traditional .I’ll check and see if it is continuing.
    I’d like to deepen my own knowledge and understanding of scripture so I’ll See what is out there and give it a go and if its a lot of that Jesus didn’t really do or say etc.. I’ll think of something else
