8th Circle of Hell

From the Vox Cantoris website:

This past week, I decided, in consultation with the Pastor where I have been singing the Ordinary Form on Saturday for the past eight years, to resign. My frustration been building for a while now. I have come to the conclusion that no matter how faithful the priest, the people are just so distracting and…

One comment and that is this, the entire Novus Ordo liturgy is built on a LIE! It is one thing to ignore the LIE, because one can always plead IGNORANCE. Yet when high ranking prelates have to consciously espouse the LIE to prop up a FRAUD, it takes the matter to an entirely different level. Or rather, one should say “DOWN” to an entirely different level. Here is the definition of just that place: (see here)

The Eight Circle of Hell is resided by the fraudulent. Dante and Virgil reach it on the back of Geryon, a flying monster with different natures, just like the fraudulent. This circle of Hell is divided into 10 Bolgias or stony ditches with bridges between them. In Bolgia 1, Dante sees panderers and seducer. In Bolgia 2 he finds flatterers. After crossing the bridge to Bolgia 3, he and Virgil see those who are guilty of simony. After crossing another bridge between the ditches to Bolgia 4, they find sorcerers and false prophets. In Bolgia 5 are housed corrupt politicians, in Bolgia 6 are hypocrites and in the remaining 4 ditches, Dante finds hypocrites (Bolgia 7), thieves (Bolgia 7), evil counselors and advisers (Bolgia 8), divisive individuals (Bolgia 9) and various falsifiers such as alchemists, perjurers and counterfeits (Bolgia 10).

UPDATE 13:05 11 July 2016

W/r/t the LIE, it pertains to the infamous paragraph 299 of the 2000 GIRM (which applies to the 2002 Missale Romanum). Here is what IT REALLY SAYS via Fr. Z’s blog (see here):

The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has been asked whether the expression in n. 299 of the Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani constitutes a norm according to which the position of the priest versus absidem [facing the apse] is to be excluded. The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, after mature reflection and in light of liturgical precedents, responds:

Negatively, and in accordance with the following explanation.

The explanation includes different elements which must be taken into account. First, the word expedit does not constitute a strict obligation but a suggestion that refers to the construction of the altar a pariete sejunctum (detached from the wall).  It does not require, for example, that existing altars be pulled away from the wall. The phrase ubi possibile sit (where it is possible) refers to, for example, the topography of the place, the availability of space, the artistic value of the existing altar, the sensibility of the people participating in the celebrations in a particular church, etc.

And commentary from then Cardinal Ratzinger:

During the 27 April 2006 presentation of the Italian edition of Lang’s Turning Toward The Lord, there is a preface by Joseph Card. Ratzinger.  Then Card. Ratzinger took up this very issue about the translation of paragraph 299 making it clear, with the Congregation, that (my trans.):

“… the word ‘expedit‘ (‘is desirable’) required no obligation, but was a simple suggestion.”

Oh well, just another instance of being LIED to since 1963!
