Read In A Roman Catholic Mass
of Aggeus (Haggai)
If one of the Faithful participates in a Roman Catholic Mass every
single day of the year, for three years, he/she will hear a
considerable part of the Holy Scriptures (New and Old Testaments)
during these liturgies. However, many parts of the Holy Scripture will
never be read in Mass; thus, they will not be heard by the most
faithful of the Faithful unless they make a point of studying the Holy
In the four Gospels the omissions, in many cases, make sense, since the
same story or parable appears in more than one Gospel. Although they do
not necessarily appear in the same manner, the key concept is still
transmitted to the Faithful. The real problem arises when major
portions of the Old Testament are simply left out from what should have
been the Evangelization Process.
Take the Books of the Major Prophets, for example. Most of their
contents are not read in a Roman Catholic Mass. Thus, most of the
Faithful are ignorant of their very important contents unless they have
made an effort to study it on their own.
Through the Grace of God and the diligent work of Mrs. R. M., from
Puerto Rico, we are able to bring to you today all verses from the Prophecy of Aggeus
have been left out of the Roman Catholic Masses.
The on-line Douay-Rheims Version of the Holy Bible was used in the
development of what we now call the "Inconvenient

 In the four and twentieth day of
the month, in the sixth month, ….
 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second
year of Darius the king, the word of the Lord came to Aggeus the
prophet, saying:  Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Ask the priests the
law, saying:  If a man carry sanctified flesh in the skirt of his
garment, and touch with his skirt, bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil,
or any meat: shall it be sanctified? And the priests answered, and
said: No.  And Aggeus said: If one that is unclean by occasion of a
soul touch any of all these things, shall it be defiled? And the
priests answered, and said: It shall be defiled.  And Aggeus
answered, and said:
So is this people, and so is this nation before my face, saith the
Lord, and so is all the work of their hands: and all that they have
offered there, shall be defiled.
 And now consider in your hearts, from this day and upward, before
there was a stone laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord. 
When you went to a heap of twenty bushels, and they became ten: and you
went into the press, to press out fifty vessels, and they became
twenty.  I struck you with a blasting wind, and all the works of
your hand with the mildew and with hail, yet there was none among you
that returned to me, saith the Lord.
 Set your hearts from this day, and henceforward, from the four and
twentieth day of the ninth month: from the day that the foundations of
the temple of the Lord were laid, and lay it up in your hearts.  Is
the seed as yet sprung up? or hath the vine, and the fig tree, and the
pomegranate, and the olive tree as yet flourished? from this day I will
bless you.  And the word of the Lord came a second time to Aggeus
in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying:  Speak to
Zorobabel the governor of Juda, saying:
I will move both heaven and earth.  And I will overthrow the throne
of kingdoms, and will destroy the strength of the kingdom of the
Gentiles: and I will overthrow the chariot, and him that rideth
therein: and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by
the sword of his brother.
 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, I will take thee, O
Zorobabel the son of Salathiel, my servant, saith the Lord, and will
make thee as a signet, for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
