I've noticed the introduction of jewish traditions in the Roman Catholic Church.

During the solemn night christmas mass services in Roman Catholic Cathedrals, I've noticed a particular jewish tradition, 7 high ranking prelates (cardinals, archbishops, loca vicar) stand in front of the altar, and the presiding prelate gives a brief comment on the ritual saying "we are now going to give you the blessing as our elder jewish brothers, lower your heads, and at the end of each prayer, you say amen" they lift one of their hands each, and start reciting the blessing prayers.

In other Roman Catholic Masses, I've noticed the use of a very popular jewish anthem "eveinu shalom alehem" sung in the company of guitarrs and drums.

Is there any Roman Catholic, or former Roman Catholic in this forum that has seen this?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

Which RC churches in what cities, please?  Did you witness this first hand or just hear about it?

Exactly,  you don't have to become a frequenter of brothels to study the evils of prostitution.   Nor does Pravoslav09 need to attend the services of what Bishop Diomod has described as the Great Whore of the Book of Revelation sitting on the Seven Hills to learn about the RCs.  The idea that Bp Diomid blesses his faithful to so such things is just mindboggling.  We are getting into very murky waters.

Yeah, but really we all know that he meant Parasynagogue of Satan!  Or was the Great Whore of the Book of Revelation sitting on the Seven Hills?  Wink

I have a question: Are you a priest? I am not trying to be smart here, I just don't know. If you are, then I'd like to ask you if making such remarks are in any way edifying? With all due respect, of course.

I think that Forum Rules prevent you asking and me answering personal questions so I'll PM you.

The remarks proceed from

1. a sense of frustration and a sense of shame that now we seem to have finished trashing the Jews we are moving on to the Catholics

2. a belief that humour can help dissipate such irascibility

3. the term "parasynagogue of Satan" is applied by the Fathers to schismatic and heretical church groups and so it is possible to follow their example and use it in an Orthodox way.... but in this thread I am using it only ironically.

4.  "not edifying"?   I have found both the thread on the Jews and now this thread on Catholics to be completely disedifying and utterly shameful (imho.)  I am pleased that neither of them can be credited to members of my own Church.  One way to deal with the ghastliness of what is being said is to prick the bubble and introduce a bit of lighthearted lampoonery.

Yes.
Dear friends:
There is a group of Hebrew Catholics who have formed an interesting website: the Association of Hebrew Catholics.
http://hebrewcatholic.org/

 The site has many articles and links to biographies of famous Hebrew Catholics, and as well has a link to the site: http://www.liturgica.com/html/litEOLitEarly.jsp
Here we find that
“Early Christianity began with a basic form that was a modified form of the Jewish Synagogue rite (or synaxis) that was coupled with a Eucharistic service (a modified Temple rite). Together these two services composed the core of the early liturgy. The earliest liturgical rites were very Jewish in form, for the earliest Christians were Jews who believed their Messiah had come in the person of Jesus Christ.”
“Among the earliest pieces of Eastern Orthodox liturgical music, which attest to this transition, is the hymn "O Gladsome Light." This hymn is recited or sung every evening at the setting of the sun during Vespers. The text of this hymn was cited by St. Justin the Martyr in about 150 A.D. in his dialogue with Trypho. Although it pre-dated the Byzantium, it is referred to as "Byzantine." It is clearly Greek in its musical form and composition, while it possesses a text that is clearly Jewish in origin and conforms to the Jewish calendar in which the day ends and begins at sunset.”

I witnessed many RC rites in the parish I grew up, played with guitars, drums and children singing Allelujah shaking and clapping their hands as if they were at a gospel concert...
As my professor of philosophy always said: Abyssus abyssum clamat...
On the question of Hebrew Catholicism, I just wonder why they didn't adopt the more genuine "Divine Liturgy of st James". After all, it was developped after Jewish worship by one of the most important Judeo Christians of the Apostolic Age...

This has chased many Catholics away from the Church. It has made me look elsewhere for "genuine" worship.

To tell you the truth, I can't stand these guitar Masses. It drives me nuts because it's nothing like what I grew up with. Might as well be a Lutheran!

I think that people in the Vatican need to overhaul the hippie-influenced Mass. Better yet, make the Extraordinary Latin Mass the norm, and the hippie Mass the eccentric, extra-extraordinary Mass for those that like that kind of stuff.

Sorry, but this makes me express the way I feel about the modern Mass and it seems no one in the upper echolon is listening.

Contrary to rumors, the Holy See isn't all powerful. They can't police every parish, of which there are 220,000 worldwide.. What you describe isn't a legitimate option but rather is a liturgical abuse.

Catholics, when they see abuses, are to speak to the priest about them. If that fails to resolve the problem, Catholics are to report abuses to their local bishop. Failing that, they are then to report to the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in Rome.

Or, if someone wishes to remain passive, he can simply go to another parish. There are 220,000 choices.

I do not take seriously anyone who leaves for another communion simply because he was not happy with the liturgy at his parish.

--

All that said, certainly there are serious problems with the liturgy in many places. The Holy See is working hard at fixing this, along with increasing numbers of bishops and priests. The laity also must play a part.

One of the better websites to watch this liturgical renewal unfold is here: http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/

Another good one: wdtprs.com

All that said, certainly there are serious problems with the liturgy in many places. The Holy See is working hard at fixing this, along with increasing numbers of bishops and priests. The laity also must play a part.

One of the better websites to watch this liturgical renewal unfold is here: http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/

How come there are so many so-called abuse problems with the Catholic liturgy and not so many with the Eastern Orthodox liturgies?

Maybe because our liturgy is felt of as an inspired expression of the Faith... we have a greater respect for liturgy as if it were a book of the Bible.
Anyway, I think that RCs should get back to the Tridentine Mass, at least they would have a beautiful rite for worship, with wonderful singing and a priest praying eastwards... Huh, I'm feeling nostalgic for a past I unfortunately never witnessed...

Why did the East fall under the devastating scourge of Iconoclasm centuries ago while the West was untouched? This too is a complicated question difficult to answer.

Among others, I personally think one of the reasons for today is that most Eastern Orthodox remain in still-conservative cultures. The numbers of Orthodox in countries like America are very small and fragmented.

As for Catholicism, it is much more difficult to find much liturgical abuse in countries like Mexico and Poland than in America or Western Europe, where many Catholics have been corrupted by modernism and secularism.

I've noticed the introduction of jewish traditions in the Roman Catholic Church.

You mean like iconography, chanting, burning incense, candles, colorful vestments, antiphonal singing, chanting the psalms, reading the Old Testament, praying Liturgically, celebrating feasts, fasting twice a week, having a male priesthood, the concept of the universal priesthood of all believers, having a "Sacrifice", confession before a priest, baptism, anointing with oil; you mean Jewish traditions like these? Yeah, shocking ain't it! Smiley

Dear Ebor,

I witnessed all this first hand.

The solemn high christmass mass with the 7 ministres giving the blessing jewish style. One time I saw that ritual in a Parrish of the Franciscan Order.

Masses where the jewish anthem is sung, accompanied by guitar and bongos. Mostly I saw that in a parrish of the Augustinian Recolletto Order.

I wouldn't mention it if it was just an urban legend, or hear and say.

I've noticed that the Roman Catholic Church is not homogeneous, it is divided in many groups, and each group has their own traditions.

Not because something is not happening in your community, it doesn't mean it doesn't happen in your church (Roman Catholic Church) at all.

So you are admitting you pray with both Jews and heretics often enough that you can make a valid comparison and indentification between their rituals, huh?

Why did the East fall under the devastating scourge of Iconoclasm centuries ago while the West was untouched? This too is a complicated question difficult to answer.

But still, the icons were restored to our Churches and for the last 1000 years they have been the glory of the Orthodox East.

Maybe God allowed your Liturgy to be destroyed for a similar reason and in the future your ancient Liturgy will return in all it glory and soar to new heights of beauty.

Very true. Before this trial, we took our liturgical patrimony for granted.

That, and IIRC he also listed as one of the crimes of what he calls the Soviet Church, and the Orthodox Church calls the Patriarchate of Moscow, is that it's ecumenically minded and the PoM cohorts with heretics whenever he is not torturing "True Orthodox," kicking puppies or drowning kittens.
In fact, I think someone posted ALL the canons against this (I mean the praying with heretics.  I don't know if kicking puppies or drowning kittens are uncanonical acts. Sorry PETA).

You all also seem to be ridding yourself of a lot of dead weight of chaff.  The cafeteria is not only closed, having failed inspection, the Board of Health has condemned it.  The bulldozers should be arriving shortly.

(btw, the West wasn't so untouched: remember the Council of Frankfurt condemning the Seventh Ecumenical Council, and praising the filiqoue IIRC).

I'm wondering if it was a NeoCatechuminal Way service. Apparently they do the liturgy a "bit" differently, and they put menorahs on the altar like in the last video link I pasted, and use guitars and bongos and dance around. AFAIK, it's supposed to be more pure and ancient or something. They are also apparently getting more popular.

The liturgical differences approved for the Neocatechumeanl Way are few and specified.  Admonitions(homiletic instructions) may precede the readings, echoes (testimonies by laity) may precede the homily,  the Sign of Peace is moved to before the Offertory.  Anything beyond this is liturgical abuse.

So they're not allowed to do things like in those videos anymore? The dancing, etc?

The first video only shows them singing a hymn, that is allowed.  The second video showing the  dance around the altar is not allowed.

It's really absurd to say that things are not allowed or that they are abuses, when they happen all the time in the Catholic Churches.

Well abuse or not, I was just wondering if a Neo Cat way mass is what the op witnessed, as they seem to have some Jewish additions.  Like this Pentecost service on You Tube from this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF9OWY4_KvY&NR=1  In the video they have a menorah on their altar.
