A Pilgrim’s Visit to the Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem at Rome

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Every Catholic dreams of visiting Rome and making the pilgrimage to the 7 Patriarchal Basilicas, which are the object of the devotion of the faithful seeking the plenary indulgence for pilgrims to Rome. But not all of us have the opportunity or the means. For this reason, FromRome.Info publishes a series of virtual visits, so that Catholics everywhere can know something of these holy places and gather some grace by visiting them in spirit.

See our previous reports:

Today, I made a pilgrimage to the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, which contains the most holy relics of the Passion of the Lord. Here in video and image is what you would see, if you came alone with me, this morning at Rome.

Then as you enter, you see this amazing sight:

This is the view of the Nave of the Church from the front door. In front, and the end of the Nave is the Apse containing the High Altar and a magnificent Fresco of Christ the Teacher, revealed in the immensity of Heaven.

Everything about this Basilica is amazing. Look at the floor, covered with precious marble tiles in the mosaic style of the High Middle Ages, which imitated that of Constantinople:

Then there are some magnificent side altars and devotional images. Here is some of them.  First, Our Lady of Grace:

Then, a side altar dedicated to Saint Bruno, showing him miraculously remove a tooth from a Martyr’s skull, so as to obtain a relic for the devotion of the faithful.

The acolyte to the right is vested in the style of the 16th century: that object in his hands is a double candle: here in Italy, on occasion they fuse two long candles together, side by side, to prevent each from breaking. Their use is customary in solemn processions. Saint Bruno to the left is weather the habit of the Eremitical Order which he founded: the Carthusians. He is depicted in this side altar, because at one time his Order had the care of the Basilica.

The Next is a side altar of Christ Crucified, with an ancient wooden carving of Our Lord upon His Cross:

Here, now, is a short video showing the magnificent Sanctuary of the Basilica. In Italian, they call this the Presbiterio, because it is the place reserved for the clergy. At the center is the High Altar, covered above with an elegant Marble and Wood Canopy supported by four pillars. High above in the Apse, there is a quarter-dome with a splendid fresco in late Renaissance style depicting Saint Helena discovering the Holy Cross, venerating it, and carrying it off to Constantinople accompanied by troops of the Imperial Army of her son Constantine.

If you noticed, beneath the High Altar is a marble reliquary: it contains the relics of Saint Helena, and is based on a design found in the Roman Catacombs, at the altars of the Martyrs. This is the ancient reason why in the Latin Rite, relics of the Saints are placed inside or beneath high altars, so that the prayers of the Mass might be accompanied to Heaven by the prayers of the Saints whose relics are enshrined therein.

Here is a better photograph of the High Altar and Apse:

In the next video, which follows, I take you step by step to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, which is located behind the High Altar, but which is approached through a separate hallway, and I show you the wonderful Relics kept there.

The treasure of treasures and the goal of every pilgrim is to kneel before the Relics of our Salvation, and beg the Lord Who hung upon them to redeem us for every grace and blessing:

IMG_20200301_085832

The 4 Major Relics of the Holy Cross are in the 4 arms of the Cross Shaped Reliquary at the center of the above photo. Beneath,  on the left, is a reliquary containing one of the Nails which held Our Lord to His Cross in his 3 Hour long Agony for our salvation. On the right,  next to it, is the reliquary of the Tabella, the piece of wood on which Pontius Pilate had etched in Greek, Latin and Hebrew:  Jesus Christ, King of the Jews!

In the reliquaries above, I am only certain of this, that the one on the right contains 2 thorns of the Crown of Thorns.

John Salza, how I joined the Masonic Lodge

John Salza is associated with the Fatima Center and the SSPX in the USA.

He is also associated with ChurchMilitant.com, where it is impossible to get interviewed unless you get deep approval:

In this second video, Michael Voris asks Salza at about 9:00 mark, Can you recognize the stench of Freemasonry? Listen to his answer: he does not attribute to Freemasons directly, the problems in the Church. He says something like: I am not saying that Freemasonry has a plan to infiltrate the Church, Our Lady is. He further affirms that “good Catholics” can be duped into joining the Lodge.

That Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a Freemason was admitted by his own head of intelligence in Argentina, as FromRome.Info reported recently.

A Catholic who publicly admits to have joined the Masonic Lodge cannot be received back into the Church or to the life of the Sacraments without signing a public document in which he renounces his membership, in due canonical form.

John Salza has authored a number of books, two of which deal with Freemasonry:

Masonry Unmasked: An insider reveals the secrets of the Lodge

The blurb for the Book, at Amazon.com is thus:

A lifelong Catholic, John Salza was initiated into a Wisconsin’s Masonic Lodge, lured by the group’s camaraderie and philanthropies. Yet, as he rose through the ranks, he became increasingly troubled by its dangerous teachings, mysterious rituals, and complete incompatibility with the Catholic Faith. Now, former Freemason, Shriner, and Lodge Officer John Salza reveals the astounding truths about what’s really going on behind the lodge door. For the first time, get a surprising, inside look at the group’s controversial rituals, practices, and philosophies from one of their own ? secrets sworn to be upheld under the threat of death! Essential for anyone affiliated with or considering the Lodge, their families, and their friends, this eye-opening book presents evidence on: ? The deception in recruitment, initiation, and covenant oaths ? The problematic ideology of Freemasonry and relativism ? How their spiritual beliefs contradict Catholicism ? and Christianity at large

And, Why Catholics cannot be Masons, which is described thus at Amazon:

Many good Catholic men have been deceived into becoming Masons. In this powerful little book, a Catholic attorney and former 32nd degree Mason, John Salza, clearly shows why joining Masonry (including the Shriners) means embracing a false religion.

Having authored Masonry Unmasked for general readership, here John Salza writes specifically for Catholics, showing why the Church has always condemmed Freemasonry, and continues to condemn Freemasonry today (despite mistaken claims to the contrary.) He explains Masonic doctrines, history, rituals, oaths and curses, showing that Masonry is totally incompatible with Christianity and the Catholic Faith.

He answers the questions: Who is the god of Freemasonry? How does Freemasonry view the Holy Bible? What are the self-curses of Freemasonry? Why does Freemasonry appear to be compatible with the Christian Faith? What have the Popes said about Freemasonry? Are “Catholic Masons” excommunicated? How does a Catholic exit Freemasonry?

Packed with facts and very well documented, Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons is a brief but potent revelation by a man who has been there – and then returned to the One True Faith.

John Salza has appeared on EWTN, and he hosts Catholic radio programs on Relevant Radio and EWTN Radio. He is the author of several apologetics books including: The Biblical Basis for Purgatory, The Mystery of Predestination, and The Biblical Basis for the Papacy.

 

Quinquagesima Sunday: Mass una cum Papa Benedicto

The goal of all Catholics is to attend Mass on Sunday, offered in communion with the true Pope. FromRome.Info for that reason recorded the entire Mass of Don Enrico Maria Roncaglia, O.S.B., offered on Sunday, February 23, 2020, in the Ancient Roman Rite, so that Catholics who are in communion with Pope Benedict XVI can have the grace at least virtually of attending the Holy Sacrifice said as all priests should be saying it, in communion with the true and only pope.

The readings are read in Latin and Italian, and Father Preaches in Italian.

The Mass was offered in the Sala Glauca, at the Hotel Pineta Palace, Rome, Italy, yesterday.

This Video was made possible by a generous donation of a Reader of FromRome.Info which enabled the purchase of a cellphone with the memory capable to record an hour long video. As soon as FromRome.Info Video gets 1000 subscribers, Br. Bugnolo will be able to transmit such Masses at Rome, live to all the world. There are currently 540 subscribers.

Building a new Crusader spirit

DEUS VULT!

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the greatest moments in the history of the Catholic Religion, began when Pope Urban II, responding to the request of Our Lord in a mystical vision of Peter the Hermit, to liberate Christians oppressed by the cruel persecution of Muslims, called the Council of Clermont in France, and on Nov. 27, 1095 called the First Crusade.

In that one act he showed the way for all future generations of Catholics that works of true mercy are not just acts of individual piety, but are just works (opera ex iustitia) of the entire Mystical Body, which should envelope every social unit inside the Church, from the Papacy right down to the local fraternity: Clergy, religious and laity, of all professions and walks of life.

Responding to this spirit and inspiration today, the members of the Ordo Militaris Catholicus work together to help Christians who are persecuted for their faith, where that persecution requires security and defense initiatives similar to those of old. The greatest work of mercy is in fact one which no Christian organization today is organized to do.

Of course this takes a lot of planing and is an effort greater than all of us, but each in our own way we try to do what we can. Among those volunteers which the Order is graced to count as a member, Andrew Baalman as a tireless promoter and recruiter. Lately he has been producing simple videos to inspire others to join and support the Order in this spirit and holy work. And this is his latest video production, which I share here for the edification of all.

Our goal with this video is to encourage others to be investors in the private military corporation which our members have founded in Montana. It is my hope that we produce professional videos in the near future, but as we do not have yet the funds, getting the message out and refining how we present it, is our first goal.

Frank Walker: Trad Inc is now more united in attack on Bergoglio’s critics

https://youtu.be/xXSwt-z0Wmw

Frank Walker exposes the “level of skunkery” in the Catholic media. FromRome.Info has noticed the same palpable unity of Trad Inc. on favoring Bergoglio ever since most of their leaders rushed to the ancestral birth place of the Nazi Party and could not explain why they spent so much effort doing something so insignificant.

Walker quotes of the day: “The Brilliance of this scheming is diabolical”. “Rorate makes it clear who they want to shut up: Don’t give money to those who do not celebrate Bergoglio’s Exhortation!”
