SS.Romanus and Barulas


Let there be brought," said the saint, " a child of tender years, and let us learn from him whether it be better to follow a religion which teaches a plurality of gods, or that which adores only one."
The prefect accepted the challenge, and the young child, who had not been long weaned, was brought forward, to whom Romanus said : "Which is better, my child, to adore Jesus Christ or a plurality of gods?" The boy replied that the true God could be only one, and that a plurality of gods was inconceivable. The tyrant, confused by this answer, turned to the child and said: " Who has taught thee these things?" He replied: "My mother, who was herself taught by God."' Asclepiades had the cruelty to have the child torn by force from his mother's embrace, scourged, and beheaded. The Church celebrates the triumph of this infant martyr, named Barulas, who was baptized in his own blood on the 18th November.


Footnote: A wonderful profession of faith, evidently inspired by Him who said : " You shall be brought before governors, and before kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the gentiles [of my divinity and of.the truth of my doctrine]. But when they shall deliver you up, take no thought how or what to speak ; for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak. For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you" (Matt. x. 18). The Holy Church is our mother according to faith, and it is God who has revealed to her the truths that she teaches us.-ED.

Teaching the Ten Commandments, prayers and how to reverently hear Mass, how we are helpless without God's aid, translating into making a Christian gentleman, are hard enough things to do. I couldn't possible see any reasonable didactive purpose in somehow trying to teach that the Novus Ordo Missae has problems. That might be a matter somehow for a priest or brother who might have delve into religious controversy, but it cannot possibly be something appropriate for a child or youth. The idea sounds horrifying.

God puts very little children to very difficult tests all the time. There are 2 and 3 year old martyrs who were able to answer the theological questions of their persecutors.


A 4 year old boy was recently taken away by his mother, told that his holy traditional Catholic relatives were bad, and forced to start going to the Novus Ordo.

After his first Novus Ordo Mass, he was asked what he thought of it. He said,

“Fake Mass. Fake priest.”

Wow! How did the 4 year old know that?
