“Today Our attention is directed to one of the most common of them (abuses), one of the most difficult to eradicate, and the existence of which is sometimes to be deplored in places where everything else is deserving of the highest praise; the beauty and sumptuousness of the temple, the splendor and the accurate performance of the ceremonies, the attendance of the clergy, the gravity and piety of the officiating ministers. Such is the abuse affecting sacred chant and music.”- St. Pius X, PopeHome

Lopes removes Ordinariate Priest for being, well, Catholic

“We were told that Fr. Treco was visited by Bp. Lopes, who essentially provided Fr Treco with the option of renouncing what he had said in the sermon (which Fr. Treco declined), or that he be removed as pastor, wherein he would have to take… wait for it…. further education classes so that he could better understand the post-conciliar church. We were also told, though, that Fr. Treco is free to continue as priest for St. Bede, even presiding over mass, just as long as he (a) does not deliver sermons or (b) has his sermons reviewed and signed off by the local diocesan priest prior to any such delivery.|

It has been hinted that Bp. Lopes was madder than a Vatican II bishop who has just been told that Jesus is a Divine Person. 10:14 pm, January 21, 2019

Please, Friends, pray for Father Treco. I wrote to him with a word of support. I do not think he didn’t care for it. 12:50 am, January 22, 2019

So now instead of just a few hundred people hearing the sermon, a few hundred thousand will hear it. And then all those people are going to google the bishop’s name, find his picture, and confirm exactly what they were thinking about him all along: that he’s a flaming faggot.1:14 am, January 22, 2019

Of course. I know of a priest in my parish that is being silenced and persecuted for mentioning Catholic teaching. Happening all the time. The “church” hates the Catholic faith and is becoming one of the primary persecutors of the faith. Francis is supposed to help the destruction.4:09 am, January 22, 2019

Dan said…

Dont worry though. Just keep sitting in those pews, you’re not aiding and abetting the destruction of the faith at all…4:11 am, January 22, 2019

Dan said…

I should mention that the young priests “crime” was mentioning that homosexuality was still considered a sin during a homily addressing the current crisis.

So naturally they MUST find a way to destroy him and “discover” that this priest didn’t REALLY have a vocation. Not to worry though, cause “womyn deaconessas” will soon be coming. Of course “deaconess” may be too patriarchal of a term, so we will have to wait for the Francis to enlighten us.

Reminder. Be generous when you give to the bishop’s annual appeal so that your dollars will help spread this new and improved gospel.5:34 am, January 22, 2019

This follows the utter betrayal of the Chinese Catholics which has resulted in communists re-writing scripture (& sermons?) according to Mao Tse Tung. I hope to read a response from his congregation. These red tyrants crumble when confronted – even PF would if anyone in the Vatican had the to do so – they are all vacuous sodomites when their ecclesiastical garments are removed. 6:26 am, January 22, 2019

Wow! Almost certainly the best sermon I have ever heard from a priest whose jurisdiction is derived from the VII hierarchy (rather than simply “Supplied” by the urgent needs in this crisis).  

Such well documented, carefully crafted, congruently delivered truth… I’m still stunned.  
God Bless this man. May his martyrdom be the example that other priests need to follow the Truth rather than the relative comfort and security of their positions. And, may the support made available to Fr. Treco from the laity provide the assurance needed to other priests that teaching the Truth is the right thing to do – the only thing to do.  

Each Rosary I pray includes, among other intentions, that all priests may receive and accept the graces that He offers them, reflecting them everywhere for the salvation of souls. Certainly, Fr. Treco is one such. 9:23 am, January 22, 2019

This is simply a case of a modernist liberal removing a modernist conservative. Trads should avoid getting emotionally invested in the plight of these modernist conservatives simply because they share some same values. Ask this modernist conservative where he stands on ecumenism and religious liberty and you will quickly hear a non Catholic response.12:19 pm, January 22, 2019

A “church” that hates the Catholic Faith is not the Catholic Church. Nor are priests of a “church” that hates the Catholic Faith, Catholic priests. 12:23 pm, January 22, 2019

Lets pray he renounces V2 and the blasphemous NO fake mass as well. 12:24 pm, January 22, 2019

If he is an ordinariate priest how comes a non ordinariate bishop cam discipline him?12:25 pm, January 22, 2019

I’d wager that if he weren’t an married Anglican convert/priest, and somewhat of a ‘sacred cow’ (no offense to the good Padre), he would have been gotten rid of completely and without hesitation. But it would be somewhat embarrassing for them to treat him that way. Many Protestant converts can see what is wrong with the Conciliar Church. It differs so little from the false church they were fleeing and resembles so little the traditional Catholic Church they are dreaming of in their hearts.3:05 pm, January 22, 2019

Hey Tom, The NO Mass I attend on Sunday is not a “fake Mass”; what you wrote is heresy!4:05 pm, January 22, 2019

what about blasphemous? When Christ is on the altar all the presumptuous peace givers turn their back on the altar where the resurrected Christ is displayed in all His glory. At least 95% of you do. Many not in a state of grace presume you can give peace, from where the Prince of peace is not.4:39 pm, January 22, 2019

Oh please, the NO V2 doesn’t believe in heresy anymore. Unless of course you adhere to pre V2 Catholic teachings. 10:15 pm, January 22, 2019

Dear Anonymous @4:05 pm, The NO priest is invalid, the NO bishop who ordained him is invalid, the “mass” he says is invalid and the NO cookie you eat is not the body of Christ. Your intention is good and you receive actual grace for that, but there is no Sacramental grace, because there is no sacrament. I am sure you attend with the very best of intentions, but the hard, sad truth is that you are giving support and recognition to the false judeo-modernist “church.” Millions of good, poor, mislead souls are in the same boat. If you would like to go into the Sacramental theology to substantiate what I am saying, we can.12:58 pm, January 23, 2019

Hello, I would like to offer some correction and clarification on the facts as presented here.

I am a parishioner of the Church of St. Bede the Venerable and was serving the Mass at which the announcement and letter from the Bishop was read. I know the original writer of the email personally. I also have spoken with Fr. Treco to get clarification and he even asked me to make these corrections.

The linked article and the portion shared here have a few factual errors.

– Bishop Lopes did not visit Fr. Treco. Fr. Treco was called to the chancery in Houston (he had to travel from MN to Houston in 1 day.) There was further communication via phone, email, and letter.
-The priest replacing Fr. Treco and now appointed as Parochial Administrator pro tempore is not a diocesan priest. He is succeeded by Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson, Ordinary Emeritus of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter who is here in MN teaching as a professor at St. Paul Seminary and is now our “pastor.”
-Fr. Treco was never technically pastor, though he functioned spiritually as such. Fr. Treco has always been parochial administrator since St. Bede’s has not been canonically erected as a parish but is, for now, what is canonically called a “community in formation.”
-While we were told in a meeting after Mass during our usual “coffee hour” that Fr. Treco could still preach homilies if they were reviewed by ecclesiastical authorities, that is actually not correct. His faculties for both hearing confessions and preaching homilies have been withdrawn. If he is celebrating a Mass as a supply priest that requires a homily (such as a Sunday Mass or Holy Day of Obligation) he is to either have the deacon (if present) preach the homily or, if there is no deacon, what he is to read which is taken from the breviary as his homily.

That is all I would like to add at this point. As far as I am aware, these are the only factual errors present. I would like to of course point out this is not the fault of Vox Cantoris or Mr. Walker, but simply errors in the information received initially.

Please pray for Fr. Treco as well as his family (he is married as many former Anglican priests who have become Catholic are.) He is the best priest and probably the best man I have ever known.6:17 pm, January 23, 2019

“…the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. […] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.”

    Bishop Gracida,

    While I found the Ordinariate priest’s sermon quite compelling and on the mark, I find this post in it’s entirety to be quite chaotic and difficult to navigate within.
    Also, I don’t understand why this priest needs to speak in such an affected, sing-song manner. It is off-putting, distracting and IMO quite unnessecary.

    I feel it is likely even counterproductive towards reaching a larger audience
    and could easily alienate some who might come to a better understanding through the content of the sermon if it was delivered in a different tone.

    I have a couple of other minor “quibbles” with his delivery, but he certainly knocked the heads right off some nails, as he hammered home some hard Truths.
    I’m sure you’ll do what you feel iss best with my comment here, but it’s just an observation on how I perceived things as he spoke.

    God Bless you your Excellency, I hope these things have not been so upsetting that it has caused undue stress on your health.
