The “Great Renewal” at work…
Lent in the Vatican II Church:
Introducing… Horror Stations of the Cross!
For people who can’t figure out why God would permit there to be a Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve got some new explanatory data coming to us from the burial chapel of St. Kilian’s Cathedral in Würzburg, Germany.
As all churches in the country are closed, the diocese of Würzburg released a video today with a “Stations of the Cross” liturgy to allow people to assist at this penitential exercise virtually. It was nothing short of a blasphemous parody of the Passion of Christ. The individual ultimately responsible for it is Mr. Franz Jung, who’s been playing Catholic bishop of Würzburg since 2018, when “Pope” Francis appointed him.
The Stations of the Cross, also called the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis), can be prayed at any time of the year, but they are particularly suitable for Lent. Every Catholic church has pictures or plaques of the fourteen Stations, typically on the side walls. The Way begins with Christ being condemned to death by Pilate and ends with our Lord’s burial. The Catholic Encyclopedia explains:
The object of the Stations is to help the faithful to make in spirit, as it were, a pilgrimage to the chief scenes of Christ’s sufferings and death, and this has become one of the most popular of Catholic devotions. It is carried out by passing from Station to Station, with certain prayers at each and devout meditation on the various incidents in turn.
(s.v. “Way of the Cross”)
Beautiful meditations on the different Stations have been written, for example, by St. Alphonsus Liguori and by St. Francis of Assisi.
That the Vatican II Church would make a mockery of this sacred devotion, goes without saying; but few people were probably prepared for what they would see during the Wurzburg diocese’s virtual Stations today.
In his prefatory remarks, the presider, Rev. Helmut Gabel, explains that the pictures of the Stations they are about to use for their meditation are found in a hallway of the Burkardushaus (St. Burkhard’s House), which is adjacent to the cathedral. This building houses the headquarters of the diocesan academic institute and is also used for conferences and similar events. Clearly aware of the need to warn his viewers, Gabel says that for some people the pictures are too much to look at, just as the images of war, violence, and suffering in this world are too difficult for some to accept.
Ladies and gentlemen, we share with you now the fourteen “Stations of the Cross” to which the diocese of Würzburg subjected the public today:
↑ First Station: Jesus is condemned to death
↑ Second Station: Jesus is made to carry His cross
↑ Third Station: Jesus falls the first time
↑ Fourth Station: Jesus meets His sorrowful Mother
↑ Fifth Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry His cross
↑ Sixth Station: Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus
↑ Seventh Station: Jesus falls the second time
↑ Eighth Station: The women of Jerusalem weep over Jesus
↑ Ninth Station: Jesus falls the third time
↑ Tenth Station: Jesus is stripped of His garments
↑ Eleventh Station: Jesus is nailed to the cross
↑ Twelfth Station: Jesus is raised upon the cross and dies
↑ Thirteenth Station: Jesus is taken down from the cross and placed in the arms of His Mother
↑ Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the sepulchre
The devil himself couldn’t have done a better job!
This blasphemous junk, entitled Via Crucis, was created in 2011 and 2012 by German “artist” Thomas Lange. What is depicted here shows just how sick and anti-Catholic the Vatican II religion is. If art is the mirror of the soul, what goes on in the souls that create, put up, approve of, or tolerate such horror? Incidentally, Lange is a public sodomite “married” to a male Japanese sculptor, according to his German Wikipedia entry.
With this “Way of the Cross”, it seems like the Würzburg diocese was in a competition with Austrian diocese of Graz, as to who can manage to put up the grossest possible blasphemy. Alhough it’s a tough call because the “crucifix” in the seminary chapel in Graz is hard to beat, one may say the Germans eked out a victory.
Fifty-five years after the “great renewal” of Vatican II, this is where they’re at. Ladies and gentlemen: The Modernists have wrought nothing but apostasy, destruction, sacrilege, and impiety. At this point, they’re simply laughing at us.
By the way, would it surprise you to learn that St. Kilian’s Cathedral features a gigantic Jewish menorah?
