Oh, hey, I'm glad you brought up the New Israel. Did you see my post this morning from a sermon by St. Sophronius, 7th century Bishop of JERUSALEM? He mentions that the Church is the New Israel! I'll repost it for you in case you missed it. Guess it's not the new theological concept that you thought after all. It's a very nice meditation for the Feast of the Presentation as well.
Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office)- Matins
Second Reading
From a sermon by Saint Sophronius, bishop (560 -638 A.D.)
Let us receive the light whose brilliance is eternal
In honor of the divine mystery that we celebrate today, let us all hasten to meet Christ. Everyone should be eager to join the procession and to carry a light.
Our lighted candles are a sign of the divine splendor of the one who comes to expel the dark shadows of evil and to make the whole universe radiant with the brilliance of his eternal light. Our candles also show how bright our souls should be when we go to meet Christ.
The Mother of God, the most pure Virgin, carried the true light in her arms and brought him to those who lay in darkness. We too should carry a light for all to see and reflect the radiance of the true light as we hasten to meet him.
The light has come and has shone upon a world enveloped in shadows; the Dayspring from on high has visited us and given light to those who lived in darkness. This, then, is our feast, and we join in procession with lighted candles to reveal the light that has shone upon us and the glory that is yet to come to us through him. So let us hasten all together to meet our God.
The true light has come, the light that enlightens every man who is born into this world. Let all of us, my brethren, be enlightened and made radiant by this light. Let all of us share in its splendor, and be so filled with it that no one remains in the darkness. Let us be shining ourselves as we go together to meet and to receive with the aged Simeon the light whose brilliance is eternal. Rejoicing with Simeon, let us sing a hymn of thanksgiving to God, the Father of the light, who sent the true light to dispel the darkness and to give us all a share in his splendor.
Through Simeon’s eyes we too have seen the salvation of God which he prepared for all the nations and revealed as the glory of the new Israel, which is ourselves. As Simeon was released from the bonds of this life when he had seen Christ, so we too were at once freed from our old state of sinfulness.
By faith we too embraced Christ, the salvation of God the Father, as he came to us from Bethlehem. Gentiles before, we have now become the people of God. Our eyes have seen God incarnate, and because we have seen him present among us and have mentally received him into our arms, we are called the NEW ISRAEL. Never shall we forget this presence; every year we keep a feast in his honor.
Thanks much...no need ..
I said it was a Catholic concept ....I do not care how,old it is...

The fact it took almost 50 years,for the Vatican to recognize the REAL ISRAEL to avoid confusion among Catholics...not my words,..one of you posted that link.....speaks,volumes .

Now they want more presence on the Temple Mount ....wonder why .

Israel is Israel

Your Church obviously did not have Faith in the prophecies which are being fulfilled ..
So supplanted the actual.Israel in its teaching ..

In my opinion they are wrong now,and then ...I don't care who said it .

Jesus,will return to ISRAEL ..the NEW,JERUSALEM will come from heaven after Jesus,returns,

Your cult didn't "give" anyone anything. In fact your cult suppressed any and all writings not in alignment with it's lies and fantastic fabricated elaborations, destroyed all knowledge and science conflicting with it's ridiculous dogma, tortured, burned, and murdered millions of world citizens, and is the cause of the "dark ages" we are still climbing out of yet today, and still the underlying cause of ignorance, hatred, and fear mongering warring among people and nations to this day because of it's errant teachings and corrupted priesthood.
You are a "PRIME" example of the result of it's teaching and influence.

Why do protestants get so caught up in cults of personality?
SHAMEFUL!

Remember what St Paul wrote to sinful pagan gentiles like you....

"1 COR 1:10-13, 17

I urge you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that all of you agree in what you say,
and that there be no divisions among you,
but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.
For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers and sisters,
by Chloe’s people, that there are rivalries among you.
I mean that each of you is saying,
“I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,”
or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to Christ.”
Is Christ divided?
Was Paul crucified for you?
Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel,
and not with the wisdom of human eloquence,
so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning."

1 COR 1:10-13, 17

Consider the message.

Every year you keep a feast in the honor of Jesus??? Are you serious?
The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, which is what it is called, also marks the official end of the liturgical observances related to the Nativity of the Lord. Another name for the day is Candlemas because candles are also blessed on this day harkening to the Canticle of Simeon, "a light to reveal you to the nations". It's a beautiful celebration.

We have many feasts and solemnities of our Lord. And don't forget, Marge, every Sunday is a little Easter!

What has that got to do with anything? I agree that Catholicism is much deeper than he realizes, that he's only skimmed the surface, and really not even that, but I don't see that his illness has anything to do with it. If they want to hit below the belt, let them, but don't you do it. I know, I'm a fine one to talk...but still...

That's pretty close to what those words meant to me which is our Gospel, We preach Jesus as Saviour and Light to what God wants which is to preach Jesus.

And yes thank you Jesus!

The entire basis and premise of bible only Protestantism is animosity,condemning,judging and spreading arrogant hatred and hostility against Jesus Christ HIMSELF and against His (historically and biblically proven One True Apostolic Catholic Church. The fact is that bible only fundamentalism "cannot exist" on its own without attacking 2,000 years of the biblical and historical TRUTH of the Catholic Church ---and the personal faith and salvation of any and all Catholics. If Regina, Clay, Star, Anthony and "every other Catholic left this forum,you "fundies"would be (frantically) looking for someone "ANYONE" to start an argument with regarding bible interpretation and your own individual (make it up as you go) Church History and eventually begin to complain,bitch and rip into each other's Protestant bible only (man-
made) contradicting opinions. "All 42,100 man-made denominations. Bible only Protestantism is IMPOSSIBLE to exist on it's own beliefs without attacking the Historical and biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church.(I know because I lived in the bondage of this bible only Protestantism for over 35 years!!!!!
