Father Simon Says – September 20, 2021

Ezr 1:1-6

  • Father Simon discusses the Decree of Cyrus the Great.

Lk 8:16-18

Mass Hysteria: Prayers that should have been kept in the Novus Ordo Mass.

Letters:

  • Gail – Let’s pray more for priests, especially the ones who are deceased.
  • James – I understand any priest can trace their line of succession back to the apostles. How do they do this?
  • Dan – Why do we get angry about what we believe?

Word of the day: Modion – The Greek word for a bushel basket. Nobody lights a candle and hides it under a bushel basket

Callers:

  • Gary – Was there anti-Semitism around in the year 1900 in the Catholic Church? How do I dispute there wasn’t anti-Semitism in the Church around in the year 1900.
  • Tim – When Jesus was performing miracles, why did he say to them ‘Don’t tell anybody about this?’
  • Tom – Why is it that with the music in the Mass, they make up words with the same tune and why is their clapping?
