We’re initiating a new feature in The Remnant called
“Who’s the Genius?”. In that column, we’ll be asking
questions such as:
Who’s the genius that decided it was a good idea for
Catholics to stop kneeling for reception of Holy
Who’s the genius that determined it was time to can the
Communion rail, pitch the paten, and drop the Sacred
Species like popcorn into the hands of everyone—even
though for over a thousand years only the consecrated
hands of the alter christi were allowed to touch
Who’s the genius that decided it was a good idea to
introduce women into the sanctuary—the Holy of
Holies—when after several millennia and for most all the
major religions in history, it had always been reserved
for men, for priests?
Who’s the genius that determined the time had come to
remove Christ altogether from the sanctuary by hiding
the tabernacle almost anywhere but where it belongs?
Who’s the genius that decided pop music at Mass better
serves the soul than the gloriously sublime Sacred Music
composed by the greatest musical minds Western
civilization had ever produced?
Who’s the genius that decided a drum kit and guitars in
the sanctuary actually add something to the unbloody
sacrifice of Calvary?
Who’s the genius who declared it was time for statues to
go, and for felt banners to become a sort of Catholic
finger-painting scrawled all over the place?
Speaking of finger painting, who was it that decided we
all need to hold hands at the Our Father like a bunch of
Remember the old Confiteor? “I confess to Almighty God,
to blessed Mary ever Virgin, to blessed Michael the
Archangel, to blessed John the Baptist, to the holy
Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you,
brethren, that I have sinned exceedingly….” Remember?
Well who was the genius that decided it was time to
streamline that to: “I confess to Almighty God and to
you brothers and sister that I have sinned”? Huh?
What, acknowledging our sins at the feet of our Blessed
Mother and all the Saints in heaven was just too much
for us to handle?
Who decided we should start saying “Peace on earth good
will to men” when the inspired words of Sacred Scripture
actually have it “And on earth peace to men of
goodwill”? Bit of a difference there, don’t you think?
Who was the genius that decided we no longer need to
take a knee at the most sacred statement of belief in
the Nicene Creed—Et incarnatus est…—but rather we
should stand there like a bunch of dolts, at best giving
the Incarnate Word an up-nod. What, was it too much
work for us to kneel?
I mean, really, what sort of demon says: “Hey, people,
what are you doing? Get off those knees! We don’t do
that in the Presence of the Divine Godhead anymore! We
don’t need to kneel to receive Him; we don’t need to
kneel at the et incarnatus est; we don’t kneel
during the consecration; heck, we don’t’ even genuflect
in front of the tabernacle anymore, should there happen
to be one.”
Who was that guy? Where is he now? And why was he never
Nice work, genius! No wonder the churches are closing
by the hundreds, “Catholics” like Nancy Pelosi and Joe
Biden are leading our country, and whole generations of
our children are simply losing the Faith, while millions
of our babies are aborted every year, our old folks live
in fear of being euthanized, and homosexuals are getting
Clearly the fort has been betrayed, and maybe these
seemingly little things provide more evidence of that
frightening reality than anything else.
Kudos to commentator Ann Barnhardt for calling it like
it is in one of her recent posts where she makes an
obvious point that all Catholics should have caught on to
When the Nicene Creed is recited at the Holy Sacrifice
of the Mass, you don't just stand there staring off into
space, breathing through your mouth, thinking about
football or lunch. At this statement in the Creed, YOU
GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES:
Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto Ex Maria Virgine,
et homo factus est.
by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and
Kneel. Don't bow your head. GET ON YOUR KNEES. Just
as everyone did up until 1968, the year the Mass was
eviscerated and Western Civilization thus began its
I don't care if no one else in your parish kneels. Stop
being such a pathetic little sissy having to "fit in
with the crowd". Get. On. Your. Knees. I don't care if
your priest doesn't kneel, or even if your priest tells
you not to kneel. Get. On. Your. Knees. If your priest
GETS ANGRY at the sight of someone REVERENCING THE
INCARNATION he is probably a Marxist-homosexualist
heretic who is actively trying to destroy the Church
from the inside-out and drag as many people as possible
into hell with him. Good grief, just stop and think
Minimizing or denying the Incarnation of Our Lord all
together is a very, very high priority
for these tools of Satan. Satan declared war on God
precisely because of the Incarnation and Satan’s
unwillingness to ever bow down to a Man, even if that
Man was the Second Person of the Holy Trinity Himself.
The Marxist-homosexualist priests are exactly the same.
They worship THEMSELVES and despise Christ because He
condemns their filthy sodomite ways and/or Marxist
worldview and will do anything to degrade Him and His
authority as the Fearsome Judge of mankind. THEY want to
be the judges so that they can declare and elevate
themselves as "god" and thus ratify their own sins,
namely sodomy and the coveting of wealth and earthly
power, which is the cornerstone of Marxism.
back against Satan and his infiltrators. KNEEL when the
Incarnation is proclaimed in the Creed, just as everyone
did up until 1968 when the Holy Mass was gutted by the
Marxist-homosexualist infiltrators, and just as everyone
still does at every Tridentine Latin Mass (and the other
... and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin
Mary, and became Man.
That is one of the most important statements of Truth
in the entire universe. It is the fulcrum upon which
everything turns. It is the declaration and proof of
God's infinite love and mercy.
Here's a thought: why don't you start acting like you
actually believe it? That is, after all, what the word
"creed" means. I believe . . .” (http://www.barnhardt.biz/)
Amen! Please keep an eye out for the new Remnant
