anna RF - meeting Pope Francis


  1. Great, Diana, where did you find it??

  2. Thank you for this video. Pope Francis, himself, encourages one to humble himself when under attack. To promote unity. Unity not uniformity. There are many liturgical rites other than the Roman rite such as the Ambrosian, Byzantine, Coptic, etc.

    Unity not uniformity. Even among the Catholic parishes in Guam, there are differences in how Mass is celebrated such as:

    1) Use of video projectors
    2) Commentary before Mass and readings
    3) Attire of Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers, whether a gown, black pants and white shirt, etc.
    4) All male altar servers, or male and female altar servers
    5) Priest or Deacon giving homily
    6) At daily Mass, homily after Gospel may or may not be given
    7) Celebrant being the parish pastor, or Bishop, or visiting priest
    8) Mass celebrated in English, Chamorro, Tagalog, etc.
    9) Mass celebrated in parish church building, or in gymnasium, or in chapels, or in the park, etc.

    But the readings of the Liturgy of the Word are the readings for the day. For the Liturgy of the Eucharist, there is an altar, bread and wine consecrated as the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

    What does LFM and CCOG mean by ‘I want my Catholic Church back’? Do they want uniformity? What about unity?

    1. correct, but the NCW is in itself not a Rite. Pope Benedict has instructed NCW et al to confirm to the liturgical books.

    2. Dear Anonymous at 2:24 pm,

      The NCW follows it's approved statutes and the liturgical books. An investigation was conducted after the NCW was accused of liturgical abuse. That investigation has already been dismissed by Pope Francis.

    3. You always say it's approved statutes but you never say all of its statutes because not all of them were approved. That's the problem here. The NCW practices all of the statutes here, the approved and unapproved statutes which causes the division in the church. The NCW is a cult, cult, cult!

    4. Dear Anonymous at 12:18 pm,

      Statutes do not cause division at all. It is jealousy, envy, hate and all manner of sin that causes division and separation from God just as Pope Francis said in the video.

    5. The only reason you would you say we are jealous and envious of the NCW is because you all think you're on higher ground than the non-neos!

    6. Dear Anonymous at 10:33 pm,

      People who say they are better than others say that because they are insecure. If you are not jealous and envious then why can you not simply leave us alone?
