Glasgow Archdiocese: “A Prayer For Our Earth: For The Success of COP26″… Gimme a BREAK!

Glasgow Archdiocese: “A Prayer For Our Earth: For The Success of COP26″… Gimme a BREAK!

Live-streamed today, some hours ago… This nonsense really begins at around 10.50…

It’s laughable to think that Glasgow is hosting an environmental conference, given that “The streets are filthy, litter is everywhere, chewing gum and vomit is omnipresent, the roads are potholed and the pavements are a patchwork quilt of trip hazards and disrepair. Obviously, the pandemic has been a huge factor with half-empty streets and boarded-up buildings, but the whole place reeks of we don’t give a damn any more…” 

I’m posting this video prayer-fest although I’ve not had time to watch it through, because both the fact of a prayer service for this purpose coupled with the fact of the disgraceful state of the city, is a microcosm of the state of the Church itself, right now – and not just in the Archdiocese of Glasgow, but that, too…

Take a look at the congregation in St Peter’s Partick.  They strike me as true believers – but not in Catholicism, from what I’ve seen at the time of posting this thread. They are climate enthusiasts, but I’m not witnessing any reverence for the Real Presence, not in those introductory minutes – are you?

    I listened to that, God Help Us B.S. Halfway through, and that’s My Penance for the Week. One thing always bothers me with this Environmental Mob and it’s WHY is China never mentioned, I mean they cause 40% of the Heat into the Atmosphere ( well they Did ) before God Decided to Erupt a Volcano in the Canary Islands. Anyhow as soon as Bergoglios Tooty Fruty is mentioned sorry ,but that’s more than enough for me to watch anymore.
    What is it that these people do not get ,Prayers for World Peace , certainly Yes . Prayers for the Earth. I actually believe that that is Blasphemous as it’s Gods Earth . He created it He’s in Charge. Certainly not Bergoglio and His Pansie Lavender Mafia Mob .
    Also why is it that this resembled a Protestant Gathering.

    One thing is for sure a Few More Windmills in Scotland as far as Pollution is concerned is certainly Well you know what against the Wind .
    Also it seems that The Globalists have done a great Job with Our Kids by Teaching them to Fear something that Britain certainly has no power over . I wonder how many of them attending Prayers for the Earth will Turn down their Thermostats in their well Heated Homes tonight.
    Certainly Bergoglio nor his Bishops and Lavender Mafia Mob won’t. That’s for certain.
    ED is their a Link to any of this to Protest against the Chinese who at the Moment Have in process the Building of 600 Super Coal Fired Power Stations.
    Or again is that a Stupid Remark.

      FOOF,

      Not a stupid remark – I just don’t know the answer.

      I’ve just finished watching that highly depressing video. As you rightly note, fear is being embedded in the souls of the youngsters. God help them. If I didn’t know better, my entire mindset would be “what’s the point of even getting up in the morning…” after watching that.

      I’d forgotten the catchy “O Lord all the world belongs to You” which I remember from my NO days. If they’d only sung that at the beginning and then gone home, we’d all be happier bunnies 😀

        And not just the youngsters. Everywhere I go now, it seems that most adults have fallen for this scam either one way or another. There’s nothing wrong with responsible stewardship of the earth, which I believe the Church has always taught, but this stuff is just blind fanaticism – a substitute for the Faith. When you get people to worry about the environment all the time, you distract them from their primary goal – their sanctification and salvation. The last words of Our Lady at Fatima were ““Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because He is already so much offended,” Sister Lucia said in her Memoirs: “Of all the words spoken at this Apparition, the ones most deeply engraved upon my heart were those of the request made by our heavenly Mother: ‘Do not offend Our Lord and God any more, because He is already so much offended!’ How loving a complaint, how tender a request! Who will grant me to make it echo through the whole world, so that all the children of our Mother in Heaven may hear the sound of her voice!” It’s interesting that these words were engraved most deeply in Sr Lucia’s heart. This is what we should be promoting in parishes, not environmentalism.

        W. Fly I believe that WE know their are Problems with Pollution. I mean we only have to be Walking down the street and we get Whiffs off of Exhausts which sometimes take our breath away, but this has always been the case one way or another.

        E D you and I can remember the Glasgow Smogs where you were lucky sometimes if you could see 10 Yards in front of you , these youngsters thank God have Never, and will Never experience such as their is now no Heavy Industry in Scotland ( in fact is their any Industry at all ) nor Coal fires. Was their no Global Warming in those days . Their certainly wasn’t in my Home when the Extra Duvet I E an Old Army Coat was put on top of the Blankets.

        I also believe that as W. F says we are good stewards of the Earth as far as is possible. I mean am not like David Beckam who says He wears His underwear One Day then throws it away . I wear mine for 6 Weeks then Wash them whether they need it or not . What a wasteful lot The Real Climate Mob are . And as for Horror Bergoglio . When is He going to come back Down to Earth as He’s in the Air more times than the average Saltcoats Seagull ,in that Private Gas Guzzling Jet of His . In fact if Horror kept His mouth shut for a just a Week. Am sure that the Ozone Layer would be grateful to Him .

      The reason that Chinese emissions are never mentions is because those emissions are in large part created via manufacturing all the cheap goods which the west craves and enjoys.

      All those mobile phones, TVs, computer equipment, clothing, furniture, toys, vehicles etc etc. They would all be much more expensive, if Chinese industry had the same restrictions and environmental targets as does Western industry.

      And so the West pretends that climate alarmism is a project for it only – one of many things which shows the whole thing up for the nonsense it is.

      Ultimately, western greed for consumer products outweighs any faux concern over environmental scare stories.

        You remind me of an American (Ken) who attended one of our conferences a few years ago. He was a larger than life character who was emphatic that we must resist the temptation to buy “Made in China” products; you have underlined that message in the context of the environmental fear mongering. So… very well said.

    On first watching I thought my look how many people in a Church, but then the camera moved and I could see they were in maks!
    The priest getting everyone to wave and greet one another, no comment.
    The school reps at the front, the individuals up giving their well intentioned bit on warming, and of course the choir singing completely unmemorable songs. Once you take out these “involved” there is hardly anyone there. That is what I find very reassuring.
    It is really quite sad that the Church is being used to spread the dogma of believe do not ask any questions.

      That is unbelievably shocking. The Pope is actually invoking a pagan goddess and denying Scripture by saying we are probably the last generation – only God the Father knows when that will be, to the best of my knowledge. I will be happy to be corrected of course. This is where this stupid green nonsense leads, right to paganism.

        Am sorry but I don’t realise why your so surprised about this Horrible Man who Dresses up as a Pope . Am not trying to be a Know it all here, but do you just read World News. Ever since his terrible ” Who Am I To Judge ” Garbage on the Sins of Homosexuality He was off my Christmas List.
        Bergoglio has Very Many Sins to answer for and that saying now is The Banner for which the Perverted Deviants March with on those Horrific Pride things.
        Of course His Worst Sins are Bergoglio serves Man and not God , am actually sure that ad beat Bergoglio in a Theology Debate He’s that Bad .

        His Biggest Sin though, without a doubt was selling out the Faithful Catholic Chinese to the Communists. Of course Bergoglio never done it for nothing as the Chinese leaked out that they Personally gave this Pagan his 30PIECES of Silver. Well it was actually $2Billion ,but what’s a few Dollars here and there amongst friends. Nothing absolutely NOTHING now that Bergoglio does surprises me . Also just for the record, He Bankrolled probably one of the Richest Homosexuals in the Worlds , Movie Rocketman ,with the Money from Peters Pence ,and We know that’s a Fact . Even Elton John said so .
        So Let’s not be surprised by Anything that Bergoglio does, for right now He’s certainly on a roll . Where that will take Him eventually well that’s up to God and He’ll not be able to say to God ” Who Are You To Judge “

    It used to be “Holy Mother Church”, now it’s “Mother Earth”, the worship of Gaia! This was from first to last a pagan service, even though it was Protestant in its presentation. I was really angry watching that blasphempous video, especially at what these pretend Catholics have done to the young people in that congregation. Poor kids, they have no idea about the Catholic Faith – absolutely no clue!

    To think that we of the SSPX in Glasgow desperately need a church worthy of the true worship of God, the holy sacrifice of the Mass, and here are these heretics with just such a church and not one iota of supernatural faith. It’s maddening!

      Athanasius,

      I share you shock horror at this blasphemous display of paganism in a beautiful Catholic church. It’s totally disgraceful.

      I’m puzzled about your remark about the SSPX though – there’s hardly likely to be any problem with them being given (or sold) one of the many empty churches in the archdiocese of Glasgow. With Traditionis Custodes limiting the diocesan priests, they might just be glad to give or sell the SSPX a church big enough to take care of all the Latin Mass goers without having to have them in other places in the diocese. I’d say if the SSPX clergy ask, they are very likely to receive LOL!

      However, from what I’m hearing on this blog (or rather, reading!) the SSPX priests are quite content with the status quo. A couple of comments on other threads recent went along the lines that there’s been no expansion in Glasgow for anything between 20-40 years. That’s some lack of expansion. It sounds like they may be war weary, but since the war’s really only around 60 years old, that doesn’t look good for them!

        Believe it or not, I was told 4 years ago by the current SSPX prior that he had been in touch with the Archdiocese and had received very favourable noises about churches becoming available. Needless to say there’s been no update since, so we can only speculate on the prior’s remarks of 4 years ago and it’s best not to do that for reasons of charity. You’re right though, there’s no desire to expand the SSPX apostolate in Glasgow, much less seek out a church more worthy of Catholic worship and more accommodating to our elderly faithful. I have written twice to both the District Superior and Scottish prior recently concerning this but to my great disappointment they have failed to respond with so much as a courteous “thank you for your comments”. I guess we’ll just have to wait for God’s providence to send us more zealous superiors – or at the very least good mannered ones.

        In the meantime, Here are some very poisitive links to three SSPX buys and builds around the world. These examples of holy zeal demonstrate very clearly that the problem of laxity in the UK is happily unique within the SSPX.

        The church at the first link and the Philippines one are just beautiful – especially the Philippines, it’s spectacular. The Immaculata one looks like it will be just as beautiful – it’s imposing from the outside.

        So, that’s sad about the SSPX superiors in the UK. They’re standing out in the world for all the wrong reasons! Lack of courtesy is never excusable, so let’s hope that you get the more zealous (or better mannered) superiors you are praying for. Someone should send them the link to this discussion and maybe touch their consciences – it could be that they are not meaning to be rude.

        I agree about those beautiful churches, their construction is reminiscent of the great faith and holy zeal which were once the glory of our holy religion all around the world. Sadly, I can’t agree that the UK superiors perhaps don’t realise that they’re being rude. I’m afraid that when a superior hangs the phone up on you in mid-conversation and then both he and the prior ignore multiple emails, you know you’re viewed as complaining trash and treated accordingly. It’s not remotely Christ-like but it is, sadly, not uncommon in the Church today. The Modernist Bishops have been operating this way for decades, although I never thought it would enter Traditional clerical circles.

        Athanasius,

        There is simply no excuse for such rudeness – ever. If it’s any consolation to you, I’ve advised a couple of those priests that you’ve been kind enough, in the past, to let me see some of your letters to them and so I know, for a fact, that they are always respectful. There is absolutely NO excuse for ignoring your written concerns, and certainly no excuse for hanging up the phone during a conversation.

        Fidelis,

        The priests read this blog, worry not. They know perfectly well that we are outspoken here – we’re not given to currying favour at the best of times, and these are the worst of times, so work that out!

        Editor

        You’re right, of course. I always try to keep my letters to priests respectful, though forthright. The problem seems to be that any form of forthrightness is interpreted as aggression and promptly ignored. It’s this contemptuous response, however, which is truly aggressive. It’s a manifestation known as “passive aggression” and it is far more sinister and damaging to minds and souls than any amount of openly expressed emotion.

        The way I see it, in terms of the Gospel and the lives of the priest-saints, is that the ordained either imitate the spirit of Our Lord by their unfeigned charity, humility, patience and condescension towards even the least of men, or they imitate the spirit of the Pharisees which is that of pride and disdainful clericalism. We can always discern the one from the other, not by their erudite sermons or intellectual prowess but “by their fruits” of piety in a parish setting.

        In this regard I recall reading of one saint who observed this infallible truth, which I now paraphrase: “The saintly parish priest will have a parish full of saints, the indifferent parish priest will have a parish full of lukewarm souls and the bad parish priest will have a parish full of demons”.

        The point being emphasised by this saint, I believe, was the very real supernatural influence a parish priest has on the souls under his care, either for good or for ill, by his example, which is why we should always pray fervently for the sanctification of our priests.

        I thought of you when I read this article today, by Kennedy Hall – some of his videos on Fatima have been posted here. He’s talking about the SSPX support for the vaccine roll-out. I’d be interested to read your response to this.

      • Athanasius

        Josephine

        I listened to that video and was struck by two things. The first is that Kennedy Hall seems to think the choice of taking or refusing the vaccine is one based on individual “principle” when, in fact, Catholic moral teaching forbidding any and all cooperation in the evil of abortion, from when these vaccines arise, removes personal choice for the faithful under any perceived principle. Archbishop Vigano, Bishop Schneider and other Church prelates have made this point admirable clear to every Catholic.

        The other thing was his reference to the old chestnut of comparing the vaccine to paying taxes. These are not remotely comparable in the moral order since we have absolutely no control over what happens to our tax contributions. We do, however, have control over whether or not we say no to a vaccine produced from the stem cell lines of aborted children. In this regard, it’s worth mentioning again that these stem cell lines were not produced from just one or two abortions many decades ago, but rather hundreds, possibly thousands of abortions, that were required before they got the procedures right.

        This falsehood about only one or two abortions first appeared in the Modernist Vatican documents the SSPX quotes in support of its position, but it is now evident to all, including the SSPX, that the pharmaceutical industry lied to the Vatican at the time those documents were being weight and written up, which revelation changes the entire moral ball game.

        As for quoting extreme case possibilities of parents having their children taken away, etc. for not participating in this immoral vaccination programme, I haven’t yet heard of such a case. But even if that were to happen, terrible as it would be, the true Catholic who has immovable faith and trust in God would refuse, as did the martyrs, to cooperate in the evil for their own benefit’ sake.

        I think I quoted a female martyr from the early centuries in a previous comment on this. I can’t remember the saint’s name but I remember that she had to watch her children being brutally murdered one by one before her eyes because she steadfastly refused to sacrifice to the false gods of Rome. She endured that heart-rending tragedy, which was made worse when the Emperor decided that she would suffer the more if he left her alive to live with her sorrow. She was allowed to leave and take her dead children with her for burial. Once buried, she prayed to God in her grief and was quickly released from her agony by being taken to heaven. And today they speak of “principle” and how we might excuse participation of the great evil of abortion? Beggars belief!

    It`s funny how it`s always those at the foot of the ladder who gets the blame for almost everything nowadays. Even on the Knock Shrine website they are advising everybody to just buy what you need whilst shopping, maybe buy jars instead of plastic containers, etc., etc. and think of your fellow human beings. No mention, however, of switching off the floodlights on public buildings including many catholic churches or to tone down the lecky on Come Dancing. I was actually relieved they didn`t go any further, as I have made plans to take a trip into space for about 15 minutes at a cost of half a billit before heading over to bomb the Middle East. Obviously those projects don`t harm the environment.

    It all started off with the hole in the ozone layer. Nobody could ever tell me why I managed to beautify myself on a Saturday night by using a half gallon of spray, thereby causing a hole in the ozone, but it didn`t manage to damage my ceiling, or my oxters, on the way out.

    We now, especially with the sudden disappearance of 100,000 lorry drivers causing fuel shortages, are being told to drive less. That`s fair enough, I suppose, but, going back to the `advice` at Knock, would it not be better to purchase food for a
    couple or three weeks to avoid driving to a supermarket three times, especially when most folk will have to do average return
    journeys of at least 20 miles?

    In our local church bulletins we are getting the same rubbish every week about our carbon footprint I would love to be invited
    to plant my footprint, I can tell you. One of the country parishes in this diocese is now closing owing to the “priest shortages”. The parishioners, probably around 30 people, are being asked to travel a return journey of over 16 miles (total 480m) each week to visit the church in town, not even the nearer church in town since that is not the cathedral. Alternatively, if they are so keen on protecting the environment, why not keep the village church open and close the one in the town which is surplus to requirements, with the priest making the journey of only 16 miles each week, rather than the parishioners? Or is there an obvious answer that I am too thick to understand?
    `
    These are the contradictory and laughable scenarios we have to undergo now on an everyday basis and it is only going to get worse.

    As the saying goes: “if you wish to control anyone, you must terrorise them first” and that is certainly true of today, especially in the Church.

    I am posting this here and on the Saint Francis thread, thus breaking my own rule discouraging posting the same information in two places; I think it’s necessary here, for the record, because it’s a disgrace that the Pope should be doing this on the Feast of St Francis, of all days. Once more placing the office of Vicar of Christ on an equal footing with every other “faith” leader under the sun. And all in the name of “saving the planet”. In any event, this whole “eco” nonsense can’t be challenged enough – especially when it is being encouraged by Catholic bishops and priests.

    This “earth prayer” is further proof, as if we needed any, that the Novus Ordo-ized Church is a pagan cult. I keep hoping stuff like this will be the clincher that jolts people awake, but apparently the hypnosis is too deep. A triple hypnosis, I suppose: the old one of “pray, pay and obey,” a newer one of papolotry, and the steady drip of poison into the mind by the Luciferian mouthpieces in the mainstream media.

    I could not stomach more than a few minutes of the video. Novus ordo slop can be quite the shock when one is blessed enough to have the traditional mass regularly.

    How pitiful it is, to see the Church going along with this nonsense in a desperate bid for relevance.

    Look at the young schoolboys at the front talking among themselves and laughing during the opening stages. It is criminal that they are served this dismal slop, when you think of the spiritual, intellectual and cultural treasure the Church could otherwise engage them with.

    And I note the priest was keen to fulfil his role of “presiding buffoon” with his infantile encouragement that everyone wave at one another in the pews.

    The idea of praying for the planet does seem odd in this context. It suggests that what happens is down to God and not human with their environmental schemes. Do the people in this video really believe that?

      Agree with everything you say – I groaned at the “wave” nonsense and noted the chatting schoolboys. As for your concluding paragraph, it made me literally “laugh out loud” when they rounded off the service with the cheerful “O Lord all the world belongs to You, and You are always making all things new…” Is there not, I thought to myself, a brain in that congregation who might be thinking “Well, if God is always making all things new, what are we worrying about?” Priceless.

      Anyway, this morning’s Scotsman headlines online include this and – again – it is in the “laugh out loud” category…
