Psalm 73 with commentary by Bishop Williamson
O God, why hast thou cast us off unto the end:
+BW: O Lord why are you letting tradition to go right down the drain
Why is thy wrath enkindled against the sheep of thy pasture?
+BW: Why are You seemingly enduringly angry with Traditionalists?
2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast possessed from the beginning.
+BW: It is your Catholic Church, we are Catholics, we are yours
The sceptre of thy inheritance which thou hast redeemed:
+BW: You created the Catholic Church, we are Catholics
Mount Sion in which thou hast dwelt.
+BW: The Catholic Church is your house, we belong to it why do You abandon it? Why are we so trampled upon by the world? Why are we always losers?
3 Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end; see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
+BW: The Novus Ordo Mass, and now ambiguity in the official declaration of the SSPX general chapter. Pride is the (cause) answer to it.
4 And they that hate thee have made their boasts, in the midst of thy solemnity. They have set up their ensigns for signs,
+BW: The Novus Ordo boasts that it is the real religion, in the cathederals and basilicas, and the ridiculous Novus Ordo banners you see disfiguring and defacing the noble Churches
5 And they knew not both in the going out and on the highest top.
+BW: They do not know the difference between their ridiculous banner and a real Catholic Church, it reaches to the highest top of the Church
As with axes in a wood of trees,
+BW: You may remember Anne Catherine Emmerich's vision of the Freemasons dismantling the Chuch stone by stone and the whole thing coming down
6 They have cut down at once the gates thereof, with axe and hatchet they have brought it down.
+BW: And now the same Masons, or the influence of the Masons, if not directly then an agent, God knows we do not know, anyway an agent is doing it and their influence in infiltrating the SSPX
7 They have set fire to thy sanctuary: they have defiled the dwelling place of thy name on the earth.
+BW: Elsewhere in the Psalms, you may remember, they have turned the Church into an apple store, they store apples, that's another psalm. They have made a monkey of the Catholic Church, a mockery to the nations.
8 They said in their heart, the whole kindred of them together: Let us abolish all the festival days of God from the land.
+BW: And you know of course, Christian feasts are disappearing one by one from the calendar, to be replaced by Jewish feasts. Nothing new under the sun, it is exactly what is going on today.
9 Our signs we have not seen, there is now no prophet: and he will know us no more.
+BW: I think it is the bad guys talking and saying, God has given up. We have not been told what we should do, we have been abandoned by God, there is now no prophet, there is no man of God setting us straight, of course there was, when the Novus Ordo came along there was Archbishop Lefebvre. He was equivalent to a prophet, a man of God telling the truth, on TV and all over the world. Since God has backed off and given up, only by illusion, we are free to do what we like. The SSPX wants to join in on that, the leadership of the SSPX wants to join in on the destruction of the true temple and the religion of God
10 How long, O God, shall the enemy reproach: is the adversary to provoke thy name for ever?
+BW: Are the Masons and the Jews going to go on and on and on winning and winning? How long does this go on?Are we going to see a resistance set up and then a subversion of the Resistance, how long?How long does this collapse go on for? When shall you step in?
11 Why dost thou turn away thy hand: and thy right hand out of the midst of thy bosom for ever?
+BW: Instead of taking out his hand to strike the enemies he turns it away
12 But God is our king before ages: he hath wrought salvation in the midst of the earth.
+BW: It looks as though God has backed off
13 Thou by thy strength didst make the sea firm: thou didst crush the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14 Thou hast broken the heads of the dragon: thou hast given him to be meat for the people of the Ethiopians.
15 Thou hast broken up the fountains and the torrents: thou hast dried up the Ethan rivers.
16 Thine is the day, and thine is the night: thou hast made the morning light and the sun.
17 Thou hast made all the borders of the earth: the summer and the spring were formed by thee.
+BW: 12-17 Who God is and who He has not ceased to be. Today how can we think that God has not everything under control, do not worry.
18 Remember this, the enemy hath reproached the Lord: and a foolish people hath provoked thy name.
19 Deliver not up to beasts the souls that confess to thee:
+BW: Lord we are trying, we are poor creatures, we are sinner but we are trying
and forget not to the end the souls of thy poor.
+BW: We are poor as far as the world goes, and poor financially sometimes, but people look after us
20 Have regard to thy covenant:
+BW: The New and Eternal covenant now
for they that are the obscure of the earth have been filled with dwellings of iniquity.
+BW: Iniquity dwells everywhere today
21 Let not the humble be turned away with confusion: the poor and needy shall praise thy name.
+BW: The poor and needy. With the prestigious and famous not many of them have and keep the true faith. Some, are like Lazarus, but not many. It is usually the ones who have not worldly goods that want heavenly goods, the worldly will find out too late, like the rich man who spurned the beggar at his gate.
22 Arise, O God, judge thy own cause: remember thy reproaches with which the foolish man hath reproached thee all the day.
+BW: God, 2012, step in, step in! The Church is in desperate trouble and now the SSPX is in desperate trouble. The SSPX is rotting from the head, step in O Lord and save it before it is completely destroyed.
23 Forget not the voices of thy enemies: the pride of them that hate thee ascendeth continually.
+BW: That is the modern world they are more and more sure they have won, they are more and more sure they have got the Church strangled. Lord please get in there smash them.
