|St. Hyacinth |
by Carracci, 1595, the Louvre
Today, August the 17th is the Feast day of the second greatest Dominican saint: Hyacinth of Poland. One would not know this, based on the actions of the neo-modernist liturgical destroyers who invaded Rome as the real barbarians to sack and burn the Roman Rites of the Church of Rome.
The neo-modernist "Roman" Calender of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has completely expunged St. Hyacinth; he is not even there an an "Optional Memorial". Gone is the great saint.
Likewise, the neo-modernist cabal that controls the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have ensured that St. Hyacinth will become a long forgotten memory.
But then, should we be surprised? These sad bishops are merely following the decadent Romans who see no further use for Hyacinth and the likes of him. It would be too much to torpedo St. Dominic himself; so why not remove his most spiritually favoured disciple? So they did.
What a striking difference is this true Dominican to the effeminate, homosexuals who have infested the once great Dominican Order. The American Dominican, Fr. John O' Connor,formed in the real Dominican tradition once said that "the Dominican Order I joined no longer exists, it has been destroyed by these homosexuals...". The effeminate malefactors dealt with Fr. O' Connor through persecution, suspension and expulsion from the Dominicans. The men who hated Fr. O' Connor naturally hate St. Hyacinth and all all he stood for. These malefactors hate Our Lord, hate His Church. No wonder St. Hyacinth was removed from the Calender.
Here we must pause in the historical part of our story, and consider a striking trait of Hyacinth's character, which should not be overlooked, but to which we have hitherto scarcely called attention. It is his spirit of humility, prayer, penance, and mortification. The more God blessed his efforts, the more he prayed and sought to sink himself in self-annihilation. Like Saint Paul, he wished the glory of all that he did to be given to heaven. Like Paul also, he chastised his body, and brought it into subjection, lest, while he preached to others, he himself should become a castaway.
It should not be forgotten that these travels, through which we have traced the apostle, were all made on foot. He nearly always slept on the bare earth, or a bard board. Frequently, even in the frozen regions of the furthest north, he was overtaken by night during his journeys, and compelled to use the snow for a bed. One marvels how he stood it. Withal, he slackened not in the observance of his rule, or in his practice of penance and mortification.
