Parish Priest refuses to issue Burial Certificate – John Menezes

In Bandra lived Mrs. Ann D’Souza, a very pious Catholic who did not attend the New Mass like me for reasons of conscience. After she suffered a heart attack she was annointed to the traditional rite of Extreme Unction by a SSPX priest, Fr. Gregory Noronha, at Guru Nanak Hospital because Paul VI’s new rite of annointing is totally bogus (critique attached)and so are the priests ordained to his new rite of ordination after 6/4/1969. After she passed away on July 2, 2014 the parish priest of her parish church, Mount Carmel Church, refused to issue the burial certificate for her to be buried in her family grave in St. Andrews Cemetery unless her sons who made the application gave in writing that they were New Church Catholics who attend the new mass in Canada and that her body would be submitted to the new mass in Mount Carmel Church before being taken to the cemetery.
The sons did not have the presence of mind to tell the parish priest to cite the relevant canon of the Code of Canon Law for the action he was threatening. My subsequent inquiry at my BMC Ward office revealed that the BMC has no powers in respect of private cemeteries but a complaint could have been made to the Police against the parish priest and they would have taken action.
I shall be grateful if you would please take up this abuse of authority with the Church authorities .
When the husband of Mrs. Ann D’Souza passed away on 29/9/1998 there was no such problem. He too never attended the New Mass after he came to realize that it was not a Catholic Mass at all. The burial certificate was issued by the Chuim Church in Khar without conditions and the True Mass was performed at the residence by a SSPX priest, Fr. Thomas Blute,  who also buried him in St. Andrews Cemetery without the New Mass being performed anywhere and with no hindrance from St. Andrews parish priest.
Your kind help will be much appreciated.
A critique of the New Mass is also attached which shows that it is not a Catholic Mass at all. So too, attached herewith is a critique of Paul VI’s revised rite of ordination which is not designed to create Catholic priests and bishops.
Paul VI’s rites are known as “Bastard Sacraments” as they are not designed to impact the soul with sacramental grace. Paul VI suffered from a grave personal disorder which surfaced in the world press, including the Indian press, in 1976.

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
