Metropolitan quoted in article about the homeless in Brighton

October 26, 2012 1 comment

The impact of the financial crisis on the city of Brighton and Hove was highlighted today in a feature article by Sussex newspaper “The Argus”. The Brighton Oratory has been volunteering with the Salvation Army Homeless dropin on Wednesdays since it started two years ago. Msgr Lloyd was interviewed on Wednesday together with the Salvation Army officers and ecumenical volunteers about the increase in attendance at the Homeless project. Msgr Lloyd was quoted:

“In the last six months the people coming here has gone from being more or less people living on the streets or squatters through to now where people who lost their jobs and are finding it difficult to make ends meet, and ended up homeless.

“We have had various stories. “There was a chap whose job was working in a burger shop and had a flat upstairs. When the shop closed he lost his flat and his job in one go and was living in a tent in Preston Park.

“We have had young mothers as well, who bring their children in during half term or the school holidays – the children are fed at school but when it’s closed they struggle to feed them.”

The article included interviews from both the statutory and voluntary sector and highlighted the significant increase in demand on the various shelters and food stations across the city.

Bishop says Christians left in Aleppo, Syria, struggle to survive | USCatholic.org

October 23, 2012 1 comment

The Chaldean Catholic bishop of Aleppo said Syria’s second-largest city, which he “loves so much,” has been left in ruins by months of fighting, and Christians there are struggling to survive.

“People have fled their homes,” said Chaldean Bishop Antoine Audo.

Speaking at a reception in Parliament Oct. 18, the bishop said that, even with the violence of “bombing and snipers,” Aleppo’s bishops have decided to stay with their people to try to prevent the loss of a Christian presence in the area.

“We don’t want to leave them alone. If I go out of the city for a time, the people will feel alone,” he said.

“We did not go to Lebanon to meet the pope to tell him that we are in a dangerous situation,” he said, referring to Pope Benedict XVI’s Sept. 14-16 visit to Lebanon. “Instead, we wrote the pope a letter to ask for his support.”

Bishop Audo was willing to visit Britain briefly, however, to raise the awareness of the plight of Syrian Christians in the West and to appeal for material assistance to help improve their situation.

“In some areas … they have fled their homes because of the threat of bombs, they have lost their livelihoods; schools, hospitals and other public services do not function. There is chaos,” he said.

“Eighty percent of people have no job and have no option but to stay at home,” the bishop said. “Poverty is getting very serious, especially with rising prices and no salaries. The face of the city has changed. There is no security, everything is dirty, there are difficulties in basic travel, no taxis, no buses.”

He said that although many Syrian people had suffered as a result of the violence that has convulsed the region Christians were confronted by problems that were “uniquely serious.”

“In the city of Homs, home to what was the country’s second-largest Christian community, all but a few of the faithful were forced to leave after a wave of persecution — all the churches desecrated,” Bishop Audo said.

“The desire to emigrate is always on people’s minds, especially Christians,” he said. “The majority of wealthy people have already left Aleppo for Lebanon to seek schools for their children.

“Those who remain in Aleppo are only the poor families. We are fearful that Christianity will decline and will lose (its) influence as it has done over the past decade in neighboring Iraq,” he said.

“If Christians in my country were reduced to a token few, it would be disastrous because, until now, ours has been one of the last remaining strong Christian centers in the whole of the Middle East.

“And so I ask what is the future of Christianity in the Middle East now?” Bishop Audo said.

The civil war in Syria erupted in March 2011 when rebels attempted to overthrow the ruling President Bashar al-Assad.

The United Nations estimates that 300,000 people have fled Syria to neighboring countries, and that an additional 1.5 million are displaced within the country. The United Nations says more than 18,000 people have been killed in the conflict, but activists put the death toll at more than 30,000.

In Geneva, officials from the World Food Program said that, in September, 1.4 million people in Syria required food assistance, and that aid workers cannot reach all those in need because of the war.

A high-level delegation of bishops, including New York Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York, is scheduled to travel to Damascus in late October to show solidarity with victims and encourage peace negotiations.

Bishop Audo spoke alongside Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos, Nigeria, at a reception organized by Aid to the Church in Need and sponsored by the All Party Parliamentary Group on International Religious Freedom.

Both men were due to speak in London’s Westminster Cathedral Oct. 20, a day of prayer for the persecuted church.

NEW Daily Mass Online website launched!

October 19, 2012 2 comments

On the Octave Day of S. Wilfrid, the Old Roman Catholic Church Latin Rite in Europe launches a new website to facilitate the Daily Mass Online apostolate, www.dailymass.co.uk as referred to in the Metropolitan of Europe’s Pastoral Letter last week.

The apostolate was originally begun by the Metropolitan, Msgr Jerome Lloyd OSJV in August of 2008 to facilitate the ill and housebound to hear Mass and members of the Sussex Mission unable through distance to attend Mass, but it gradually came to include viewers at work or people who’s schedules prevent them from attending Mass, particularly on holydays of obligation. Episodes of the broadcast Masses now attract an average of 1’400 viewers per month. Visitors to the website are now able to watch the Mass live and see previous archived episodes categorised by month and Solemnity.

The new interactive website, it is hoped, will enable viewers not just to watch the daily broadcasts of Mass but also register membership of the site to engage with each other and form an online worshiping community. A discussion Forum has been included to enable viewers, some of whom being housebound have little interaction with other members of the wider Church, to introduce themselves and discuss their faith. Those who use the popular social website Facebook will also be able to join using their site membership.

The Mass is offered according to the Gregorian or Tridentine Rite and Kalendar codified and promulgated by Pope S. Pius V in 1570. Due to the proliferation and variance of liturgical Kalendars since then, the broadcast follows the 1570 General Kalendar more or less “as is” saving national and local custom. The Mass continues to be broadcast from the Brighton Oratory of the Sussex Mission, during the week from the Metropolitan’s domestic chapel and at weekends from the Mass centre hired by the Mission in central Brighton. Msgr Lloyd employs recorded music during those moments, aside from the Canon, where there would otherwise be silence, in part to enhance the experience for the viewer and he preaches a homily daily too. He said,

“The apostolate is very much more than just a gimmic! Its meant to be a very real opportunity for people who would otherwise be without opportunity, to experience worship, feel part of the wider Church and receive spiritual nourishment and encouragement. It is a pity that so many are unable to make a daily Communion, but many Saints have extolled the virtue of a Spiritual Communion, unifying intentions with those of the Church in her ultimate offering of prayer and praise to God in, through and with Christ.”

Prayer requests and Mass intentions may also be posted online for celebrants to collect both for broadcast and private Masses (a donation towards the running costs of the website rather than the customary Mass stipend is suggested). Celebrants are drawn from the Oratory of St John Vianney, a mixed congregation of religious and secular priests desiring to emulate the example of the saintly Curé d’Ars.

On Saturdays a new service called “The Vigil” will be broadcast replacing the more conventional First Mass of Sunday with something akin to the “little Oratory” of St Philip Neri i.e. a slightly more informal service of hymns and prayers and an informal “Q&A” teaching session. Viewers will be able to send prayer requests and questions via SMS text messaging for answering live during the broadcast. The service will end with Holy Communion for those attending and an Act of Spiritual Communion as usual for viewers.

“The Vigil” is conceived as an introductory medium for enquirers of Catholic Tradition for whom a full Latin Mass may be intimidating or confusing. The hymns, readings and prayers will be in English, reassuringly employing the vernacular for those unused to Tradition. The Holy Communion Rite will be in Latin according to the Rituale Romanum and will itself be a gentle introduction to the traditional Latin of the Mass.

Msgr Lloyd said, “The Traditional Mass is not directly of itself, purposefully an evangelistic tool, people may well be moved by it to desire to know Our Lord Jesus and through previous generations many have! But the Mass is primarily an act and participation of worship by the faithful, that is, those already confirmed in the Faith and the historical formulation and development of the Mass indicates this, for example the “Mass of the Catechumen”. “The Vigil” we hope will be a gentle introduction to the Traditional Mass, that experiencing something of it but not quite “it” will draw and encourage people to want to know more about the Mass and discover it gradually, more appropriately as a means of desiring it, developing a deepening faith and understanding about the Sacred Mysteries.”

Suggested, in part, by Pope Benedict XVI’s “Year of Faith”, “The Vigil” is part of a wider vision for evangelisation conceived by Msgr Lloyd supported by other activities designed to invite people to experience the beauty of Traditional worship. Inspired by the formula of the Ordinary of the Traditional Latin Mass, i.e. the first half of the liturgy traditionally called the “Mass of the Catechumens” and the Early Church practice of Dominical Vigils (the popular Easter Vigil being the best known remnant) Msgr Lloyd hopes to engender and reawaken a heightened sense of expectation concerning the Sacred Mysteries, most especially for those enquiring about the Faith.

Armenian Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem dies

October 12, 2012 1 comment

His Grace, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Europe sent a message of condolence today to our Christian brethren of the Armenian Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem upon hearing of the passing of His Beatitude, Archbishop Torkom Manoogian, 96th Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem, “memory eternal” and for whom we pray “requiescat in pace”.

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live.” (John 11:25)

Armenians of Palestine are united in sorrow with the worldwide Armenian Orthodox Community and especially with their Armenian Patriarchate and community of the Holy Land over the death of their Patriarch Torkom Manoohgian, whom the Lord has called from this life.

May the Lord of life welcome in peace this son who has long served the Armenian Church of the Holy Land with dedication.

On October 12 Vicar of the Patriarch of Jerusalem Archbishop Nurhan Manoukyan informed Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II that after long illness at the age of 93 Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem Rev. Archbishop Torkom Manoukyan died.

As Information Centre of the Mother See informed “Armenpress”, Catholicos of All Armenians, Supreme Spiritual Council and all clergymen of Armenian Apostolic Church are mourning over the loss of merited Holy Father Patriarch and praying to God to grant consolation of Holy Ghost to our Christian people and bless Armenian Patriarchy of Jerusalem and its brethren.

Honourable Rev. Archbishop Torkom Manoukyan was born in Northern Baghdad (Iraq) on February 16, 1919 and after receiving elementary education at Armenian school of Holy Translators he entered St. James’s seminary of Armenian Patriarchy of Jerusalem.

Torkom Patriarch could exert his authority over development of international ecumenical relations. He was a chairman of “Religion in American Life” Council. He also was a member of the council of directors of “Call of Conscience” foundation.

He was author of more than 20 monographs including three books of poetry, study on Armenian Divine Liturgy, books dedicated to the Armenian Genocide and detailed guide to the holy places of Jerusalem. The deceased Patriarch was a prominent expert on Komitas.

Metropolitan of Europe’s Pastoral Letter: “Et nos cognovimus”

October 12, 2012 3 comments

outlinehabit[Issued to the Clergy on the Eve of today’s Titular Patronal Feast of St Wilfrid of York]

Carissimi

“And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him.” [1 John4:16] Today is the beginning of the “Year of Faith” proclaimed by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVIi. Tomorrow is the feast of St Wilfridii, first bishop and heavenly patron of our Titular See of Selsey. We feel it appropriate then to write to you, our brethren, this our first pastoral letter since our consecration to the episcopate and the receipt of our charge to perpetuate and continue the apostolic ministry of this historic Seeiii.

The time and situation in which we serve has similarities to the age and situation in which our illustrious predecessor first sowed the seeds of Faith in the historical geography of our See. We, like S. Wilfrid who was in exile when he came to pagan Sussex operate “in partibus infidelium”iv, the seat of our ancient See long ago subsumed to the ravages of timev and her fold eventually to apostasy, our flock scattered and lost. We minister in a society that, to all intents and purposes is fast shedding the remnants of its historic Christian culture and fast returning to attitudes akin to our pagan ancestors, losing the light of the Gospel and returning to the spiritual ignorance of the dark ages; the young being sacrificed to Mammon and human intellect to base subjectivity. Added to which, unlike S. Wilfrid, we no longer have the confidence and security of a true shepherd in Rome upon whom we may rely for guidance and teaching. In many respects, the glorious achievements of our See’s past have been lost to our present. Indeed, as such we might justly claim to be that prophetic church described once by an aspiring theologian, “From today’s crisis, a Church will emerge tomorrow that will have lost a great deal.”vi.

Yet, we are here! Yet God has preserved our salvific inheritance that we exist to serve even nowvii! Yet does Our Lord still, by our consecrated hands in the continuation of the Levitical priesthoodviii, fulfill His promise to remain abiding with His peopleix, in the Sacrament of His Lovex, available to them through the ministry of His anointed servants, we His apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachersxi. Yet even directly in the descendency of our apostolic lineage, connected as we are to S. Wilfrid’s apostolic ministry through that of his pupil, S. Willibrordxii, has God’s fidelity not been proven to usxiii?

Today our former brethren celebrate the fiftieth anniversaryxiv of an occasion which solidified their distance in conciliarism from that Tradition preserved and inherited by us through the See of S. Willibrordxv and the resolute steadfastness of Archbishop Mathewxvi. For all the ignominy he endured and despite the lack of comfort that might have been his from those to whom he entrusted his legacy, yet have we inherited that same Apostolic Faith that he sought to preserve. By his efforts, not only did we receive that true inheritance of saving Faith, but also the unquestionably valid espicopate of the Apostles themselves, recognised and legitimised by his communion with two of the ancient Patriarchies, even that See which was first of Peter before Romexvii. Though we might be “poor and a Church of the little people”xviii even so we have all the benefits of Christ’s promises to His Apostles. Is there another Church as authentic as ours, more closely resembling the nascent Church of the Apostles themselves, drawn as our members are from all works of life, living on our wits and the providence of God rather than on the legacies of past benefactors?

Conciliarism did not begin fifty years ago! Rather it began a century or so beforexix and almost exactly one hundred years before its influence effected a radical alteration to the Faith in its timeless liturgical expressionxx. Haven’t we seen the evidence all around us, where salvific dogma and doctrine is decided by election and majority votingxxi? Whilst we thought prophetic voices in those intervening years made a stand for Sacred Traditionxxii, they did not realise that in effect the “Great Apostasy”xxiii had already long infected the Church, because they were in the midst of the conflict they could not see its damage. How over the years we have acclaimed such voices as heroes of Tradition, yet all the while they were fighting blindly! The battle had already been lost, long before a hapless successor of Peter put pen to paper and with one careless sweep both opened the door and heralded the “smoke of Satan”xxiv entering the Church… the forces of darkness had already been long at work and triumphant! Is it not reminiscent of wartime that we see friends and church families divided and parting ways, torn by the ravages of militant modernism and so-called progressivism all resulting from this spiritual debacle?

So what are we to do? What can we do? Small and poor, unprivileged in the eyes of the world and yet blessed by such an inheritance? For do we not “know and have believed the love which God hath in us”xxv? Is that not why, widely dispersed though we are, we have found each other as we have sought on our personal pilgrimages of faith to find that “pearl of great price”xxvi? We must not repeat the mistakes of those fallen heroes so tragically wasted in a lost battle, we must not give in to anger and conceit. We can only do that which Our Lord bids us to doxxvii. We must seek to represent Tradition with that same Divine Charity by which it was preserved for us to receive it. We must seek to proclaim and maintain it as our forefathers did, all of them, S. Wilfrid, his student S. Willibrord and his descendants the Ultrajectine fathers and our own Archbishop Mathewxxviii. We in our own turn must continue to suffer, to endure and to remain steadfast despite the persecution, defending the Truthxxix, despite the ridicule and emnity we receivexxx honouring the Saints, martyrs and confessors who went before us from whom we received the Faith. For if we face all with charity, if we bear all with humility and contriteness of heart, demonstrating our conversion both individually and collectively for love of Christ, for love of His Church for love of our Father in heaven; then we will succeed to preserve that “single deposit of the Faith, once delivered to the Saints” [Jude 1:3] and by that Faith, Christian hope and above all charity will prevail. We must seek to be the “salt” that does not lose its savour, be “lights to the world”xxxi.

Sometimes it is a wonder to us that Old Roman Catholicism has succeeded to the present age, yet here we are, 102 years after Archbishop Mathew made his stand to preserve this sacred inheritance! Though we have none of the material and social advantage of other churches, yet we possess a greater treasure, THE Catholic Faith, whole and entire! We have strived particularly these past few months to consolidate an apologetic arsenal for ourselves with which to defend our position and regard as a true Church, this evidence is available on the ORCCE/LR website, today relaunched as “oldromancatholiceurope.com”. We have a unique position as Old Roman Catholics and now we must begin to consolidate, defend and proclaim our position both intellectually and in praxis.

We have already been applying such apologetics, working particularly hard to grow and make manifest our European brief and already our labour has borne fruit, two auxillary bishops and a monasteryxxxii! We are establishing relationships with orthodox Catholic groups and individuals across Europe drawn to our apologetics and our efforts to rebuild and establish a united Old Roman Catholic presence in the continent of our nativity. Our enthusiasm for the priceless treasure we posses, is inspiring and drawing others. We continually receive appreciation for our efforts from other places in the world, particularly North America and not just from our brethren in our own wider ORCC/LR communion. Many are looking to us for a lead. We must emphasise here that all this is “OUR” effort, the enthusiasm and dedication of ALL of us and it will ever need to be such for our continued growth. We who have found and are rebuilding Old Roman Catholicism have turned personal grief to joy, loneliness to belonging, all because of the love of God! Now we in our turn must enable the same experience for others.

It is this need to reach out and enable others to find what we have that our Daily Mass Online apostolate was conceived and now needs to grow. We have been constructing a new website to facilitate this and have been developing a platform to enable a wider and more interactive participation for viewers and indeed for you all to cooperate with this apostolate. It is in fact through this particular outreach that many of you found us! Similarly the Congregation of the Divine Caritasxxxiii model is being developed as a tool for church planting and the forming of local communities to assist you in the mission of the Gospel, the salvation of souls, necessary for the growth of the Church. A pack is currently being put together based upon our own experience of developing the Cong.DC model through the establishment of the Brighton Oratory. This is an ongoing work, but there are aspects of our outreach and ecumenical cooperation that are transferable anywhere.

Dearest brethren, we have no need to be embarrassed of our inheritance! Archbishop Mathew, despite all the odds, managed to secure and pass onto us a legacy that is both grounded in historical fact, evidenced by repeated external affirmation and descended authentically from the Apostles themselvesxxxiv. It is clear from our growing experience and relationship with other Churches ecumenically, that our sincerity and dedication is being recognised. Inheriting our own efforts when Vicar General, we have maintained membership of internationally significant ecumenical bodiesxxxv which does help us in discussion with other Christian bodies and we hope to develop this further, using the weightier influence of such organisations to increase our own regard and open doors.

We have desired by this letter to convey to you something of our manifesto, i.e. what we understand Old Roman Catholicism to be and our vision for the future for that which we in turn receivedxxxvi and must pass on. Our charge to guard, maintain and perpetuate, TOGETHER for the sake of True Tradition, the Church and the salvation of souls. We beg your prayers and humbly invoke the intercession of Ss. Wilfrid and Willibrord, for our preservation and our success!
