ABP. GOMEZ LEADS 6-MILE EUCHARISTIC PROCESSION IN DOWNTOWN LA TO REVIVE FAITH IN REAL PRESENCE
A Mass on the feast of the Annunciation was followed by the procession through the city streets and concluded with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
LOS ANGELES (LifeSiteNews) – On March 25 for the feast of the Annunciation, Archbishop José Gomez led a six-mile Eucharistic procession through the streets of Los Angeles. After a Mass in the Chapel of the Annunciation at San Gabriel Mission, the archbishop led a procession with the Blessed Sacrament, carried in a large golden monstrance under a canopy, through the streets of downtown L.A. to St. Luke the Evangelist Church. The procession, with many lay Catholics, religious, and clergy of the archdiocese in attendance, returned to San Gabriel Mission shortly after noon, where the archbishop led solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The procession route spanned 6.5 miles. The event is part a three-year National Eucharistic Revival launched by the U.S. bishops on the feast of Corpus Christi last summer to increase faith and devotion to the Eucharist.
DESTRUCTION OF THE WEST: PACHAMAMA MASSES
(LifeSiteNews ) — On this week’s episode of Faith & Reason, John-Henry Westen and Liz Yore shared their thoughts on the new Mayan rite of Mass replete with pagan symbolism and lay leadership. The details on the Pope Francis-encouraged Mayan rite of Mass were publicized in two reports by LifeSiteNews’ Maike Hickson this week. Photographs, images, and statements showed the presence of pagan symbolism in this proposed rite, and then a 31-page official draft  outlined the concept of lay “principles” and highlighted the “relationship with sister mother earth.” Liz Yore called the proposed rite the “logical extension of the last 10 years, from the Pachamama Mass, from Laudato si, from the Amazon Synod, and frankly from the Abu Dhabi Declaration.” “All of this is really part of the foundation for what … we’re now calling the Pachamama Mass,” she said. “This is very troubling because at the same time Pope Francis is elevating the Mayan, pagan Mass, he’s eliminating the Traditional Latin Mass.”
