St. Peter Catholic Church Omaha Traditional Tradition Catholic Success

DOING WHAT VATICAN II ACTUALLY STATED.

AN AMAZING REVIVAL OF 
 A CHURCH BY ITS PRIEST BEING EXTREMELY FAITHFUL TO THE CORRECT INTERPRETATION 
OF VATICAN II.

A new documentary (which is available on DVD) tracks the journey of how a priest, at St Peter Catholic Church, Omaha, and his community, through fidelity to Church tradition and the authentic words of Vatican II, turned a church with dwindling numbers into a thriving parish.


"We're trying to do everything as faithfully as we can, as beautifully as we can, to what the Church has given us," 

Father Damien Cook, pastor of St. Peter Catholic Church in Omaha.



St. Peter's is "dedicated to the restoration of the sacred," he said, with Masses sung with Latin and chant, liturgies celebrated both facing the people and facing the altar, altar boys, Eucharistic adoration, evening prayer sung every day, processions, and distribution of Communion at the altar rail. There is a emphasis on what he terms 'holy distractions'. He has made the church as 'Catholic' as possible so when people come in tired and not concentrating before Mass there are lots of holy points of reference to take their mind away from life's troubles and to centre them on Christ.





"This is what we should do, if we're going to be a fully faithful church according to Vatican II and the whole tradition of the Church," said Fr. Cook.

"Where Heaven Meets Earth" is a 30 minute documentary produced by the StoryTel Foundation, which will be premiered on EWTN on Tuesday, April 30. A DVD of the documentary is also available (here) for pre-order at the foundation's website.

“I’ve been amazed to see the progress people have made over the last few years, and the numbers of people we have had at the masses through mostly word-of-mouth,” said St. Peter’s pastor Father Damien Cook. “The congregations have grown and flourished to the point that at one of our masses the church is completely full with standing room only, which amounts to over 800 people. For our neighborhood, in our situation, in just six years’ time, this is radical growth.”

THE CATECHISM OF POPE PIUS X & ON MODERNISM

THE CATECHISM OF POPE PIUS X


Q: Where are the members of the Church to be found?

A: The members of the Church are found partly in heaven, forming the Church Triumphant; partly in purgatory, forming the Church Suffering; partly on earth, forming the Church Militant.

Pope Pius X On Modernism




Despite a relatively hard reputation Pope Pius X was in reality an extremely kind man, and Pope, who was born poor and who said that he wanted to "die poor". The video contains a talk concerning Pope Pius X and modernism.

PENTECOST

'Moments ago these were frightened men who gathered only behind locked doors, in secrecy. They were huddled together in fear. But now they go forth to the crowds and boldly proclaim Christ. They have gone from fear to faith, from cowardice to courage, from terror to testimony'.

JEAN VANIER SEEING GOD IN OTHERS

JEAN VANIER
SEEING GOD IN OTHERS

The Catholic hero and role model Jean Vanier (founder of L'Arche) is well known for stating that every time we come into contact with someone with a disability, it is at these moments that we have an experience of God whilst we are on earth. This belief was central to the L'Arch Communities he founded around the world.


Jean Vanier's father was Governer General of Canada. He gained a Ph.D as well as becoming a QC, but ultimately, through his faith, gave it all up to found the L'Arche communities.



In 1964, through Vanier's friendship with a priest named Father Thomas Philippe, he became aware of the plight of thousands of people institutionalised with developmental disabilities. In Trosly-Breuil France he founded the first L'Arche community. He initially believed that he could teach them something about life. He soon discovered that in fact it was the 
other way around.



.
He is one of the people I am most inspired by. Beyond this he seems to have a tangible connection to God.
