The New Modernist “Catholic” Church

THE ENEMIES OF GOD AND OF HIS CHURCH

“…the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. […] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.”- Pope St. Pius X

“They are men whose audacity against the wisdom that has come down from Heaven increases daily. They arrogate to themselves the right to correct this revealed wisdom as if it were something corrupt, to renew it as if it were something that had become obsolete, to improve it and to adapt it to the dictates, the progress, and the comforts of the age as if it had been opposed to the good of society and not merely opposed to the levity of a few men.- Pope St. Pius X

“…You must labor and diligently take care that the faith may be preserved amidst this great conspiracy of impious men who attempt to tear it down and destroy it.” (Mirari Vos, Encyclical of Pope Gregory XVI, August 15, 1832 A.D.)

“If a future Pope teaches anything contrary to the Catholic Faith, do not follow him.” – Pope Pius IX

FREEMASONRY

The aim of Freemasonry is “to exercise an occult overlordship upon society; [its] sole raison d’etre is to wage war against God and His church.” - Pope Leo XIII

“Now the Masonic sect produces fruits that are pernicious and of the bitterest savor for, from what We have above most clearly show, that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view – namely the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordances with their ideas,” - Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Humanum Genus

The foundational principle of Freemasonry is for Man to take the place of God - the Worship of Man. They propose a "civic" morality, - they are "philanthropists" (Greek for 'lovers of Man'). They propose that an ideal world, based on Fraternity, and Equality, could be made without God.

Other principles naturally flow from this. God is the source of all legitimate authority, therefore, they espouse anarchy. In God's order, men are in a position of authority over women. Therefore they promote Feminism. No one is "over" another. Of course, without God, there is no heaven, so the emphasis in on earthly happiness and peace - "the pusuit of happiness" rather than the eternal reward of heaven. If man is to be worshipped, in and of himself, then there can be no sin, everything a Man does, is good. God is the source of all truth - but everyone knows that Man isn't good at arriving at, or telling the truth! So, there is no truth; and of course, there is no true religion, all religions are the same, which of course leads to the conclusion, that none of them mean anything, they're just so many man-made legends! Do you see where we're heading? To atheism. And of course, that is the final masonic goal – to erase the Name of God from the earth.

We see all of this pervading Society as well: The 1960's Hippie movement brought Eastern religion and spirituality to the West, with its fundamental ethos, - harmony with nature, communal living, experimentation particularly in music, and the widespread use of mind-altering drugs — spread around the world . An Anti-establishement counter-culture. As the 1960s progressed, all aspects of chastity were abandoned, - "free love"- women took on men's roles, and all God-given authority was despised.

"There they were in America, all getting house-trained for adulthood with their indisputable principle of life: short hair equals men, long hair equals women. Well, we got rid of that small convention for them.... perhaps they grew too tired for (morals)" - Paul McCartney, 1966

Added: Masonry, “correctly point out that, despite advances in science, the rabbis and Kabbalists Jews wishing to maintain their power over minds, devoted themselves to the “Kabbalah of the left”, ie to magic, demonology, the evocation of spirits, sorcery, spiritualism, all sorts of sordid excitement, in order to enslave the weak minds that have lost, for one reason or another, the benevolent support of the True Faith. We understand that such studies, far from serving the true God, lead directly to the worship of the occult and devil worship.”…..

“The Kabbalah is the basis of the doctrine of the Masons, as well as all secret societies called to life by the infiltration of Jews in Christian circles.The purpose of Freemasonry is the symbolic rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon, but the secret purpose that is understood, is the destruction of the Christian Church and all Christian States, to replace the Christian faith by the luminous mysteries obscured in the Kabbalah, and submit all Christian peoples from the yoke of Kabbalistic Jews.”….

“To achieve these goals, Masonry, from its installation in all countries, entering through its agents, all layers of society, managed to occupy the highest positions of State by its members … and result in all peoples of the Universe riots, insurrections, revolutions. It spreads by all means, regardless of duty and the Patriot neglect the family, to the faith. Masonry is also seeking for the Jews, equal rights and the establishment of constitutional government under the label of which she promises to the nations of the benefits of all kinds, those benefits are really just enslavement of the people of the State, the Church to the Masonic Constitution, legalized in London in 1720, by the statutes of a secret Anglo- Jewish, whose aim is to worship the devil. “….. Monsignor Ernest Jouin

Freemasonry’s symbolism contains elements of Judaism, as well as Egyptian paganism, in which some of the Jewish people became involved in Old Testament times. The pillars are referencing the Temple of Solomon. The hexagram is featured within and on the outside of many Masonic temples. It may have been found within the structures of King Solomon’s temple. Egyptian influence is seen in Eye of Horus -the All-Seeing Eye of the Illuminati - as well as the pyramid.

“The meaning of the left in Latin sinistra, sinister, macabre, is also worthy of attention, because Christ said that on the day of Judgement, the Son of God would place the sheep on his right, that is to say those who have followed His commandments, and left, the goats that is to say those who have rejected His divine doctrine (Matt. XXV, 33), so the left indicates those who reject Christ are against Him, as well as the truth. The parties led by the Jews, the Masons or other Judaizing heretics call themselves leftists, to mark the initiated into the mysteries of Kabbalah their hostility to Christ and the Truth, and their adherence to devil worship and falsehood!” -Monsignor Ernest Jouin

The Kabbalah is a mixture of secret doctrines of Babylon and Egypt, distorted by the Jews in their own way under the influence of their hatred for Christianity. We see how some of the Jews were seriously involved with the gentile paganism of the area by from Bible quotations:

“But Solomon worshiped Astarthe, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Moloch, the idol of the Ammonites.” 1 Kings 11:5

“Then Solomon built a temple for Chamos, the idol of Moab, on the hill that is over against Jerusalem, and for Moloch, the idol of the children of Ammon.” 1 Kings 11:7

“Thou shalt not give any of thy seed to be consecrated to the idol Moloch, nor defile the name of thy God. I am the Lord.” Leviticus 18:21“And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Ennom: that no man should consecrate there his son, or his daughter, through fire, to Moloch.” 2 Kings 23:10

“And they have built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Ennom, to consecrate their sons and their daughters to Moloch: which I commanded them not, neither entered it into my heart, that they should do this abomination, and cause Juda to sin.” – Jeremias 32:35

FR. MAXIMILIAN KOLBE ON JUDAEO-MASONRY

In 1917 Fr. Maximilian Kolbe founded the Militia of the Immaculata. His fight was not turned toward killing the enemies of the Church, but aimed to convert them so they could achieve eternal salvation. It is in this spirit that he addressed his enemies.

In an article titled “The Poor Ones” he describes the hatred expressed for Christ and His Church in The Talmud: “Man was redeemed, and Christ founded His Church upon a rock. Some of the Hebrew people recognized Him as the Messiah, but others – among them principally the Pharisees – did not want to recognize Him. Instead, they persecuted His followers and issued numerous laws obliging the Jews to persecute the Christians. These laws, together with stories and appendixes, became their sacred book called The Talmud around the year 500.

“In this book Christians are called idolaters, worse than Turks, murderers, impure libertines; they are manure, animals in human form, worse than animals, children of the Devil, etc. Catholic priests are called fortune-tellers and bald-headed dunces … the Church is called a house of stupidity and filth; sacred statues, medals and rosaries are called idols. In The Talmud Sundays and holy days of obligation are considered days of perdition.

“This book teaches, among other things, that a Hebrew can deceive a Christian and steal from him since all the properties of a Christian are – from the text itself – ‘like the desert, the first to take them becomes the owner.’ “This book, written in 12 volumes and breathing hatred against Christ, is considered by these Pharisees a sacred book, more important than Sacred Scriptures.”

At the time of the International Congress of Freemasonry in Bucharest in 1926, Fr. Kolbe wrote the article “Rycerz Niepokalanej” [The Knight of the Immaculate] in which one reads:These men [the Freemasons] believe that they are the ones who will rule everything, but let us hear what is written in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Protocol n. 11 states: ‘We will create and put in effect the laws and the governments … in opportune moments … by means of national rebellions. … What we want is that the multitudes, disoriented by the revolt, still in a condition of terror and uncertainty, should understand once and for all that we are so strong, so untouchable, so powerful that in no way will we take into account their opinions and wishes. Instead we are ready and able to crush with irresistible power their manifestations at any moment and in every place. … Then, in fear and trembling, they will close their eyes to everything and await the consequences. …

“For what purpose have we created this policy and insinuated it into the minds of the Masons, without giving them any possibility of examining its underlying meaning? … This is what has served as the basis for our secret organization of Masonry, whose existence is not known or even suspected by these cattle, attracted by us into the army of Masonic lodges.”

In another article of 1926, Fr. Kolbe, again citing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, wrote: “They say of themselves: ‘Who or what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is precisely what our force is. Gentile Freemasonry only serves as a screen for us and our objectives, but our plan of action will always remain unknown by the people.”

THE JEWISH ROTHSCHILD FAMILY is the most powerful in the world, with and estimated 500 trillion dollars. They own most of the central banks of the world, including the Federal Reserve. The six pointed star, known as the Star of David, as seen on the Israeli flag, has nothing to do with King David, and it was not considered a Jewish symbol before the Rothschilds appropriated it as their family moniker and symbol. The six-pointed star, called the talisman of Saturn, is commonly use as a talisman in different forms of occult magic. It is also referred to as the Seal of Solomon.

In all organizations that owe their origins to the Rothschild’s Illuminati you will find either the pyramid shape, the single eye, or both in combination. The best example is on the American dollar bill. This is because the Rothschild family owns the United States Federal Reserve Bank.

Masonic symbolism is very prominent at the supreme court building is Jerusalem, Israel.

The French Revolution: Liberty – Fraternity – Equality

……and the Rights of MAN

1789 – 1799 According to The Catholic Encyclopedia, the Masonic book La Franc-Maconnerie, printed in 1746 predicted the program of the French Revolution, and quotes documents of the Grand Orient of France where Freemasonry claims credit for the French Revolution. Most of the French revolutionaries were Freemasons including Voltaire, Marquis de Lafayette, Marquis de Condorcet, Mirabeau, Georges Danton, the Duke of Orleans, and Hebert.

The official causes for the French Revolution were food shortages, economic crisis and despotism. However, it is believed that the famine and malnutrition previous to the conflict were intentionally caused by the Duke of Orleans (grandmaster of the Grand Orient Lodge) by buying all the grain available and then selling it abroad or withholding it from the population. Galart de Montjoie, a contemporary, said about the Duke: “[he] was moved by that invisible hand which seems to have created all the events of our revolution in order to lead us towards a goal that we do not see at present…” Second, the economic crisis was to a great extent due to Louis XVI’s support for the American Revolution; and we already saw that the ones negotiating that support were Solomon and Franklin. And third, it’s said that Louis XVI’s rule was tyrannical and despotic, but it is also believed that the same man accused of those things gave the order not to shoot when his own palace was raided.

“The red cap of Liberty” on the seal of the U.S army

The declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of 1789 proclaimed freedom of religion across France. A programme of destruction was waged against Catholicism, and eventually against all forms of Christianity, included:

• destruction of statues, plates and other iconography from places of worship

• destruction of crosses, bells and other external signs of worship

• the institution of revolutionary and civic cults, including the Cult of Reason and subsequently the Cult of the Supreme Being (spring 1794)

• the enactment of a law on 21 October 1793 making all nonjuring priests and all persons who harbored them liable to death on sight The climax came with the celebration of the goddess of “Reason” in Notre Dame Cathedral on 10 November 1793.b ( A naked woman was placed on the altar of Notre Dame Cathedral. All church property in France was declared to belong to the nation, confiscations were ordered and church properties were sold at public auction. In July 1790, the National Constituent Assembly published the Civil Constitution of the Clergy that stripped clerics of their special rights — the clergy were to be made employees of the state, elected by their parish or bishopric, and the number of bishoprics was to be reduced — and required all priests and bishops to swear an oath of fidelity to the new order or face dismissal, deportation or death.

Le Marcellaise, the battle cry of the Revolution, is now the French National Anthem:

On 13 April 1791, the Pope denounced the Constitution, resulting in a split in the French Catholic church. Over fifty percent became abjuring priests (“jurors”), also known as “constitutional clergy”, and nonjuring priests as “refractory clergy”.

Fourteen Carmelites nuns were executed 17 July, 1794.

In September 1792, the Legislative Assembly legalized divorce. At the same time, the State took control of the birth, death, and marriage registers away from the Church. An ever-increasing view that the Church was a counter-revolutionary force exacerbated the social and economic grievances and violence erupted in towns and cities across France. In Paris, over a forty-eight-hour period beginning on 2 September 1792, as the Legislative Assembly (successor to the National Constituent Assembly) dissolved into chaos, three bishops and more than two hundred priests were massacred by angry mobs. Priests were among those drowned in mass executions for treason under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Carrier; priests and nuns were among the mass executions at Lyons, for separatism. Hundreds more priests were imprisoned and made to suffer in abominable conditions in the port of Rochefort. Between the two summers of 1793 and 1794 more than 50,000 people were killed for suspected counter-revolutionary activity or so-called “crimes against liberty”. One third of this number died under the blade of the guillotine. If the Convention’s brutal retaliations against civilians in the Vendee and other provinces are included, the victims of the Terror number closer to 250,000.

King Louis XVI was executed Jan 17, 1793, and Queen Marie Antoinette was executed16 October, 1793.

The word "dimanche" (Sunday) was abolished. The Gregorian calendar, which was decreed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582, was replaced by the French Republican Calendar with no sabbath, saints’ days or any references to the Church. Anti-clerical parades were held, and the Archbishop of Paris was forced to resign his duties and made to replace his mitre with the red “Cap of Liberty.” Street and place names with any sort of religious connotation were changed. Religious holidays were replaced with holidays to celebrate the harvest and other non-religious symbols…….

Under threat of death, imprisonment, military conscription, or loss of income, about twenty thousand constitutional priests abdicated and handed over their letters of ordination, and six thousand to nine thousand of them agreed or were coerced to marry. By the end of the decade, approximately thirty thousand priests had been forced to leave France, and others who did not leave were executed. Any non-juring priest faced the guillotine or deportation to French Guiana.

Meanwhile, The French Revolution improved the situation for French Jews in 1789, resulting in their full emancipation in 1791. In 1806, Napoleon I ordered the convening of a “Grand Sanhedrin” in Paris and in 1808 he organized the “Consistoire central des Israelites de France”, the administrative agency for all French Jews. The consistorial system made Judaism a recognized religion and placed it under government control. By tradition, the “Central Consistoire” has had a member of the Rothschild family as its President…………

The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States by France. The Lodges in France organized French support for the American Revolution also. Ben Franklin was a member of a French Lodge when he was serving as liaison in Paris. Furthermore, as we have seen, the economic crisis that sparked the French Revolution was to a great extent due to Louis XVI’s support for the American Revolution and the ones negotiating that support were Solomon and Franklin.

As the result of revolution in France, Masonic-based revolutionary clubs sprang up in other countries as well, including England, Ireland, German states, Austria, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland

The popes on Freemasonry:

Pope Leo XIII published the Encyclical Humanum Genus 20 April 1884

Below are excerpts:

“Today evil doers all seem allied in a tremendous effort inspired by and with the help of a society powerfully organized and widely spread over the world, it is the Society of Freemasons. In fact those people no longer even try to dissimulate their intentions, but they actually challenge each other’s audacity in order to assail God’s August Majesty.

It is now publicly and overtly that they undertake to ruin the Holy Church, so as to succeed, if it is possible, in the complete dispossession of Christian nations of all the gifts they owe to Our Savior Jesus Christ.

"Lamenting these evils, We are constrained by the charity which urges Our heart to cry out often to God: “For lo, Thy enemies have made a noise; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They have taken a malicious counsel against Thy people, and they have consulted against Thy saints. They have said, ‘come, and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation.'”

“As a result, in the space of a century and a half, the sect of the Freemasons has made incredible progress. Making use at the same time of audacity and cunning, Masonry has invaded all the ranks of social hierarchy, and in the modern States it has begun to seize a power which is almost equivalent to Sovereignty.

“This peril was denounced for the first time by Pope Clement XII in 1738, and the Constitution promulgated by that Pope was renewed and confirmed by Benedict XIV; Pius VII followed in the footsteps of those Pontiffs, and Pope Leo XII including in his Apostolical Constitution ‘Quo Graviora’ all the deeds and decrees of the preceding Popes on that subject, ratified and confirmed them for ever. Popes Pius VIII, Gregory XVI and on several occasions Pope Pius IX spoke in the same manner.”

“The only thing which has found grace before the members of the Masonic sect and in which the request that youth should receive the proper teaching is what they call ‘Civic Morality’, independent morality, free morality, in other words a morality in which religious beliefs find no room. This morality is insufficient and its effects are its own condemnation. All means are to be systematically used, in order, to saturate the multitudes with licentiousness and vices; because in their opinion peoples would naturally fall into their hands and become the instruments needed for the accomplishment of their most audacious evil projects. Such counter-morality is that of civil marriage, of divorce, of free love and of irreligious education for youth.”

“It aims at the complete destruction of the main foundations of justice and honesty. In this way Freemasons make themselves the auxiliaries of those who wish that, like an animal, man had no other rule of conduct than his own desires — Such a scheme can only dishonor human kind and ignominiously cast him into perdition.”

**********

When Pope Leo XIII adjures his Venerable Brethren to unite their zeal to his own efforts in order, “to annihilate the impure contagion of the poison which flows in the veins of human society and causes a state of total infection,” one brings to mind the death sentence pronounced against humanity in the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”: “When we introduced into the State organism the poison of Liberalism its whole political complexion underwent a change. States have been seized with a mortal illness — blood-poisoning. All that remains is to await the end of their death agony.”

***********

“Since the proper and very special mission of the Catholic Church consists in the safeguarding of the incorruptible purity of the doctrines revealed by God, as well as that of established authority for their teaching and other God given help for the salvation of mankind; it is inevitable that the major antagonism and most violent attacks of the Sect should be directed against the Church . . . Therefore, even at the cost of a lengthy and opinionated labor the Sect’s purpose is to reduce to naught the teaching, and authority of the Church among the civilian population. . .”The enmity of the sectarians against the Apostolic See of the Roman Pontiff has increased its intensity . . . until now the evil doers have reached the aim which had, for a long time that of their evil designs, namely, their proclamation that the moment has come to suppress the Roman Pontiff’s sacred power and to completely destroy this Papacy which was divinely instituted.”

“The facts which we have reviewed throw sufficient light upon inner constitution of Freemasons and show clearly the road they are following in order to reach their goal. Their chief dogmas are so completely and manifestly opposed to sane reason that it is difficult to imagine deeper perversion. In reality is it not the peak of madness and of the most audacious impiety to be so presumptuous as to want to destroy the religion and the Church created by God Himself: and assured of His perpetual protection; and after 18 centuries to want to replace it with the customs and institutions of pagans?”

“Still no less horrible nor easy to bear to witness the repudiation of those gifts which, in His mercy, Jesus Christ bestowed first on individuals, then to human beings grouped both in families and in nations. Even the enemies of Christianism acknowledge the supreme value of those gifts."

“There is no denying that in this foolish and criminal plan it is easy to understand the implacable hatred and passion for revenge which animate Satan toward Jesus Christ. We refuse to follow the dictates of such iniquitous masters that bear the names of Satan and of all evil passions.”

POPE LEO XIII ENCYCLICAL INIMICA VIS – Dec 8, 1892 also on Freemasonry

Below are excerpts:

“The enemy forces, inspired by the evil spirit, ever wage war on the Christian name. They join forces in this endeavor with certain groups of men whose purpose is to subvert divinely revealed truths and to rend the very fabric of Christian society with disastrous dissent. Indeed, how much damage these cohorts, as it were, have inflicted on the Church is well-known. And yet, the spirit of all previous groups hostile to Catholic institutions has come to life again in that group called the Masonic sect, which, strong in manpower and resources, is the leader in a war against anything sacred....

"Now, though, a certain thoughtless indifference on the part of many Italians has resulted in their not recognizing the magnitude and extent of the peril. And so the faith of our ancestors, the salvation won for mankind by Jesus Christ, and, consequently the great benefits of Christian civilization are endangered. Indeed, fearing nothing and yielding to no one, the Masonic sect proceeds with greater boldness day by day: with its poisonous infection it pervades entire communities and strives to entangle itself in all the institutions of our country in its conspiracy to forcefully deprive the Italian people of their Catholic faith, the origin and source of their greatest blessings”.

THE MEXICAN REVOLUTION

Added: Mexico’s first constitution, enacted in 1824 stated that the religion of the nation was, and would perpetually be Roman Catholic. After the Revolution of Ayutla, nearly all of the top figures in the government were Freemasons and fierce anticlericalists. In 1857 a Constitution was adopted which attacked the property rights and possessions of the Church. After a civil war and the dominance by the supporters of that Constitution under Benito Juarez, a freemason, the supporters of tradition backed an ill-advised Mexican Empire supported by the French. When the Emperor Maximillian was deposed and killed, the country descended into a series of anti-clerical governments. After the rule of Porfirio Diaz who was relatively moderate in his stance toward the Church, an increasingly violent and extreme anticlericalism erupted. In 1917, a new Constitution was enacted, hostile to the Church and religion, which promulgated an anti-clericalism of the sort seen in France during the Revolution. The 1917 Constitution outlawed teaching by the Church, gave control over Church matters to the state, put all Church property at the disposal of the state, outlawed religious orders, outlawed foreign-born priests, gave states the power to limit or eliminate priests in their territory, deprived priests of the right to vote or hold office, prohibited Catholic organizations which advocated public policy, prohibited religious publications from commenting on public policy, prohibited clergy from religious celebrations and from wearing clerical garb outside of a church and deprived citizens of the right to a trial for violations of these provisions. Another article of the Constitution emboldened Marxist and then Communist labor unions which subsequently incited even more anti-religious governments. With Plutarco Elias Calles’ election in 1924 anti-clerical laws were stringently applied throughout the country. Calles also added his own anti-clerical legislation, including a requirement that prohibited priests from ministering unless licensed by the state. State officials then began to limit the number of priests so that vast areas of the population were left with no priest at all. After a zealous persecution of unlicensed ministry, decrepit churches were soon expropriated for use as garages, museums and the like, and the Mexican bishops, deported or underground, as a last resort of protest suspended all remaining ministry and urged the people to protest the persecution of their faith.

Between 1926 and 1934 at least 40 priests were killed. Where there were 4,500 priests serving the people before the rebellion, in 1934 there were only 334 priests licensed by the government to serve fifteen million people, the rest having been eliminated by emigration, expulsion and assassination. By 1935, 17 states had no priest at all.

MARXISM/COMMUNISM

Communism, well known for it's militant atheism, is also of Jewish origen. Karl Marx, known as “the father of Communism, was the grandson of a rabbi by the name of Mordeccai. Marx was given his initial encouragement by a Communist-Zionist by the name of Moses Hess. As founder and editor of the Rheinische Zeitung, the main organ of leftist thought in Germany, he provided Karl Marx with his first important platform. Later, in Brussels, he collaborated with Marx on The German Ideology. It was Hess too who converted Friedrich Engels to Communism, the wealthy textiles magnate who later subsidised Marx from the profits of sweated labour in Britain and Germany. When the Bolsheviks overthrew the short-lived democratic government in Moscow and St. Petersburg in October 1917, it was a virtual Jewish coup d’etat. The most prominent Jewish Commissar was Trotsky, real name Bronstein. He had been married by a rabbi in 1900, and whilst in exile in New York he had worked for Novy Mir, described in the Church Times (23 January 1925) as a “Yiddish newspaper.”

The various reporters and diplomats who were there at the time of the “Revolution” have given evidence as to its Jewish nature. The widow of the Guardian’s correspondent Mrs. Ariadna Tyrkova-Williams wrote: “In the Soviet Republic all the committees and commissaries were filled with Jews.” The Communist Journal L'Humanite was founded by the Jewish multi-millionaires: Levy- Brahm, Dreyfus, Elias-Rodriguez, Salomon Reinach, Blum, Casewitz, Herr, Sachse.

THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR

From 1936 to 1939 stands as one of the traumatic events of the 20th century. As many as a million people, civilians included, might have died in a conflict that pitted class against class, unbelief against faith and left a shattered nation. Once again, the Catholic Church was one of the main targets. Thousands of priests, religious and laypeople died for the faith in execution-style killings, surpassing even the French Revolution. During the 18th century, the anti-religious propaganda of the Enlightenment had worked to undermine the influence of the Church. In 1837, its extensive landholdings were seized at the insistence of liberals and were sold to middle-class speculators.

By the early 20th century, bringing the Church down had become “a matter of obsession” for the Church’s enemies. A major aim of the Church’s opponents was to drive religious orders out of the field of education. Hostility went beyond obsession and took a violent turn. In 1923, anarchists shot and killed the archbishop of Saragossa. In spring 1931, a wave of violence broke out in Madrid, Seville and other cities, with mobs attacking churches, monasteries and convents. Though nearly every Spaniard was baptized, two-thirds of them didn’t practice their religion, except possibly for baptisms, weddings and funerals. Only 5% of the rural inhabitants of New Castile made their Easter duty in 1931; in Andalusia, only 1% of the men in some villages went to Mass, and in a well-off Madrid suburb, 90% of Catholic school graduates didn’t go to church. In 1931 supporters of a republic won a majority of votes in local elections. King Alfonso XIII, left Spain, and it was proclaimed a republic. The new provisional government almost at once declared separation of church and state and religious freedom. In the spring, a campaign of anti-monarchist, anti-religious violence began in Madrid, Seville and other cities. May 10 brought fresh attacks on churches and other religious establishments. The cardinal-archbishop of Toledo and the bishop of Vitoria were expelled from the country for anti-Republican statements. In the fall, the government introduced a draft constitution with religious clauses. They included ending government payments to priests begun in last century as compensation for seizure of Church lands; requiring religious orders to register with the justice ministry under threat of dissolution if found to be threats to the state; dissolving orders whose members take more than the usual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience (in other words, the Jesuits); ending all religious education; requiring government approval for any “public manifestation of religion”; and recognizing only civil marriage as legal.

Pope Pius XI protested these developments in an encyclical published in June 1933 titled, Dilectissima Nobis (“Extremely Dear to Us” — i.e., the Spanish nation). Denouncing the “anti-religious whims of the present legislators,” the pope declared: “We cannot fail to raise our voice against the laws lately approved … which constitute a new and graver offense not only to religion and the Church but also to those declared principles of civil liberty on which the new Spanish regime declares it bases itself.” The pope likened what was happening in Spain to the persecution of the Church then under way at the hands of the anti-clerical government in Mexico and the atheist rulers of the Soviet Union. The attack on the Church in Spain, he said, was “not so much due to misunderstanding of the Catholic faith and its beneficial institutions, as of a hatred against the Lord and his Christ.”

Churches were set ablaze, shrines were defaced, statues destroyed, treasures looted, and religious art became kindling for the nightly bonfires. Statues and plaques dedicate to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in particular had long been an object of hatred. In the days following the outbreak of civil war, the colossal Sacred Heart of Jesus statue in Aranjuez, just outside Madrid, was torn down using ropes and a mule-cart. When the statue hit the ground and shattered, the head was seized and thrown into the river.

In Almeria, local militiamen blew up the Sacred Heart monument in the town square. Elsewhere in Spain, images of the Sacred Heart were burned, smashed with pickaxes, hurled from balconies and publicly ‘executed’ by firing squad. Random acts of an anti-religious nature were, by now, common. In Andalusia, after lightning destroyed a church roof and the priest celebrated Mass under the open sky, he was fined for an unauthorized public display of religion. Another priest, preaching on the feast of Christ the King, was fined for expressing monarchist sentiments by referring to the kingship of God. The ringing of church bells drew a fine in one place, while elsewhere churches were robbed and burned, with the authorities doing little to identify perpetrators.

In the Republican controlled areas, public blasphemy and mock religious events took place as well. In the town of Cienpozuelos, near Madrid, right-wing sympathizers were force to march in “Catholic procession” while armed revolutionaries, dressed in priestly robes sang obscene parodies of religious hymns on the feast day of Our Lady of Consolation. In Alcaniz, a town famous for its Holy Week events, people organized a parody Lamentation of Christ procession. And in Calanda, a group of local elites were forced to carry the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary through jeering crowds to the town’s bullring, where it was destroyed. Tombs were opened and church graveyards dug up as the remains of saints, priest, and nuns were exhumed and profaned in the streets of Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo, Valencia and Almeria. The tomb of Fr. Jaime Balmes was profaned, and people have played football with the skull of Bishop Torras y Bages. Further incidents took place in Toledo, at he Church of San Miguel, where disinterred corpses were displayed on the central altar, and Madrid, where skulls were placed on the altar of the Carmelite Church, in the most notorious incident, the bodies of nineteen Silesian nuns were exhumed and exhibited in Barcelona, “flanking the doors of the church and spilling out onto he street. Here they remained for three day, during which time more than forty thousand people filed past them, sometimes silent, but more often jeering. Meanwhile, a reaction against the radical policies of the new regime was setting in among monarchists, aristocrats, wealthy people and the middle class, elements of the army and some in the Church. The conservative political parties pulled themselves together and began winning elections, while their opponents on the left grew ever more hostile and determined to fight if it came to that. Spanish society as a whole descended increasingly into a state of constant tension and revenge-seeking among a mix of groups that included anarchists, socialists, communists, Freemasons, Catholics, monarchists, the fascist Falange, the army, the civil guards and others. The wave of clergy killings was staggering. During the first two months of fighting, 13 bishops, 4,172 diocesan priest and seminarians, 2,364 monks and friars, and 283 nuns and an unknown number of laypeople were killed for their faith. The majority of these killings were collective in nature, with groups of clergy member rounded and publicly executed. The hatred was so extreme that after death the bodies of clergy members were subjected to public mockery and mutilation, or else dragged through the streets. In one example the parish priest’s body was ‘shamefully mutilated,’ dragged through the city and finally hoisted up the bell tower of his own church, where it went up in flames with the rest of the building. When it was over, it has been estimated that 150 churches and cathedrals were completely devastated during this period, with another 4,850 severely damaged (of which 1,850 were considered half-destroyed). Persecution of the Church continued in Madrid and other places where the Republican forces or the militias of the anarchists, communists and socialists were in control. Although the persecution eventually slacked off, never in the next three years did it end.

MODERNISM…the clothing of sheep

BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS WHO COME YOU IN THE CLOTHING OF SHEEP, BUT INWARDLY ARE RAVENOUS WOLVES, BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM.

The Modernist movement succeeded the French Revolution. Several of the propositions collected in the Syllabus of Pius IX, although enunciated from a rationalist point of view, have been appropriated by modernism. Such, for example are, the fourth proposition which derives all religious truth from the natural force of reason; the fifth, which affirms that revelation, if it joins in the onward march of reason, is capable of unlimited progress; the seventh, which treats the prophecies and miracles of Holy Scripture as poetical imaginings; propositions sixteen to eighteen on the equal value of all religions from the point of view of salvation; proposition fifty-five on the separation of Church and State; propositions seventy-five and seventy-six, which oppose the temporal power of the pope. The modernist tendency is still more apparent in the last proposition, which was condemned on 18 March, 1861: “The Roman Pontiff can and ought to conform with contemporary progress, liberalism, and civilization.”

Modernism may be summarized under the following heads:

• A spirit of complete emancipation, weakening ecclesiastical authority; the emancipation of science, which must traverse every field of investigation without fear of conflict with the Church; the emancipation of the State, which should never be hampered by religious authority;the emancipation of the private conscience whose inspirations must not be overridden by papal definitions or anathemas; the emancipation of the universal conscience, with which the Church should be ever in agreement;

• A spirit of movement and change, with an inclination to a sweeping form of evolution such as abhors anything fixed and stationary;

• A spirit of reconciliation among all men through the feelings of the heart. Many and varied also are the modernist dreams of an understanding between the different Christian religions, and even between religion and a species of atheism, and all on a basis of agreement that must be superior to mere doctrinal differences.

• “The avowed modernists”, says Modernist M. Loisy, “form a fairly definite group of thinking men united in the common desire to adapt Catholicism to the intellectual, moral and social needs of today”. “Our religious attitude”, as “Il programma dei modernisti” states, “is ruled by the single wish to be one with Christians and Catholics who live in harmony with the spirit of the age”.

“These enemies of divine revelation extol human progress to the skies, and with rash and sacrilegious daring would have it introduced into the Catholic religion as if this religion were not the work of God but of man, or some kind of philosophical discovery susceptible of perfection by human efforts.” Pope Pius IX

“Nothing can ever pass away from the words of Christ, nor can anything be changed in the doctrine which the Catholic Church received from Christ to guard, protect, and preach.” Pope Pius IX

80) That the Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism, and modern civilization – Pope Pius IX: Syllabus of the Principal Errors of our Times (1864)

POPE PIUS IX:“If anyone says that it is possible that at some time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the Church which is different from that which the Church has understood and understands: let him be anathema.”

Modernism was denounced by Pius X as the “synthesis of all heresies”. “The danger” Pius X said, is “in the very veins and heart of the Church.”

POPE ST. PIUS X ENCYCLICAL PASCENDI DOMINICI GREGIS, Sept 8, 1907

“The office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord’s flock has especially this duty assigned to it by Christ, namely, to guard with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called. There has never been a time when this watchfulness of the supreme pastor was not necessary to the Catholic body; for, owing to the efforts of the enemy of the human race, there have never been lacking “men speaking perverse things” (Acts xx. 30), “vain talkers and seducers” (Tit. i. 10), “erring and driving into error” (2 Tim. iii. 13). Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the cross of Christ has in these last days increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to overthrow utterly Christ’s kingdom itself….”

“….their system does not consist in scattered and unconnected theories but in a perfectly organized body, all the parts of which are solidly joined so that it is not possible to admit one without admitting all……

And now, can anybody who takes a survey of the whole system be surprised that We should define it as the synthesis of all heresies? Were one to attempt the task of collecting together all the errors that have been broached against the faith and to concentrate the sap and substance of them all into one, he could not better succeed than the Modernists have done. Nay, they have done more than this, for, as we have already intimated, their system means the destruction not of the Catholic religion alone but of all religion. With good reason do the rationalists applaud them, for the most sincere and the frankest among the rationalists warmly welcome the modernists as their most valuable allies.

For let us return for a moment, Venerable Brethren, to that most disastrous doctrine of agnosticism. By it every avenue that leads the intellect to God is barred, but the Modernists would seek to open others available for sentiment and action. Vain efforts! For, after all, what is sentiment but the reaction of the soul on the action of the intelligence or the senses. Take away the intelligence, and man, already inclined to follow the senses, becomes their slave. Vain, too, from another point of view, for all these fantasias on the religious sentiment will never be able to destroy common sense, and common sense tells us that emotion and everything that leads the heart captive proves a hindrance instead of a help to the discovery of truth. We speak of course, of of truth itself- as for that other purely subjective truth, the fruit of sentiment and action, if it serves its purpose for the jugglery of words, it is of no use to the man who wants to know above all things whether outside himself there is a God into whose hands he is one day to fall. True, the Modernists do call in experience to eke out their system, but what does this experience add to sentiment? Absolutely nothing beyond a certain intensity and a proportionate deepening of the conviction of the reality of the object. But these two will never make sentiment into anything but sentiment, nor deprive it of its characteristic which is to cause deception when the intelligence is not there to guide it; on the contrary, they but confirm and aggravate this characteristic, for the more intense sentiment is the more it is sentimental. In matters of religious sentiment and religious experience, you know, Venerable Brethren, how necessary is prudence and how necessary, too, the science which directs prudence. You know it from your own dealings with sounds, and especially with souls in whom sentiment predominates; you know it also from your reading of ascetical books – books for which the Modernists have but little esteem, but which testify to a science and a solidity very different from theirs, and to a refinement and subtlety of observation of which the Modernists give no evidence. Is it not really folly, or at least sovereign imprudence, to trust oneself without control to Modernist experiences? Let us for a moment put the question: if experiences have so much value in their eyes, why do they not attach equal weight to the experience that thousands upon thousands of Catholics have that the Modernists are on the wrong road? It is, perchance, that all experiences except those felt by the Modernists are false and deceptive? The vast majority of mankind holds and always will hold firmly that sentiment and experience alone, when not enlightened and guided by reason, do not lead to the knowledge of God. What remains, then, but the annihilation of all religion, – atheism? Certainly it is not the doctrine of symbolism – will save us from this. For if all the intellectual elements, as they call them, of religion are pure symbols, will not the very name of God or of divine personality be also a symbol, and if this be admitted will not the personality of God become a matter of doubt and the way opened to Pantheism? And to Pantheism that other doctrine of the divine immanence leads directly. For does it, We ask, leave God distinct from man or not? If yes, in what does it differ from Catholic doctrine, and why reject external revelation? If no, we are at once in Pantheism.

Now the doctrine of immanence in the Modernist acceptation holds and professes that every phenomenon of conscience proceeds from man as man. The rigorous conclusion from this is the identity of man with God, which means Pantheism. The same conclusion follows from the distinction Modernists make between science and faith. The object of science they say is the reality of the knowable; the object of faith, on the contrary, is the reality of the unknowable. Now what makes the unknowable unknowable is its disproportion with the intelligible – a disproportion which nothing whatever, even in the doctrine of the Modernist, can suppress. Hence the unknowable remains and will eternally remain unknowable to the believer as well as to the man of science. Therefore if any religion at all is possible it can only be the religion of an unknowable reality. And why this religion might not be that universal soul of the universe, of which a rationalist speaks, is something We do see. Certainly this suffices to show super-abundantly by how many roads Modernism leads to the annihilation of all religion. The first step in this direction was taken by Protestantism; the second is made by Modernism; the next will plunge headlong into atheism.

If only they had displayed less zeal and energy in propagating it! But such is their activity and such their unwearying capacity for work on behalf of their cause, that one cannot but be pained to see them waste such labour in endeavouring to ruin the Church when they might have been of such service to her had their efforts been better employed. Their articles to delude men’s minds are of two kinds, the first to remove obstacles from their path, the second to devise and apply actively and patiently every instrument that can serve their purpose. They recognise that the three chief difficulties for them are scholastic philosophy, the authority of the fathers and tradition, and the magisterium of the Church, and on these they wage unrelenting war. For scholastic philosophy and theology they have only ridicule and contempt. Whether it is ignorance or fear, or both, that inspires this conduct in them, certain it is that the passion for novelty is always united in them with hatred of scholasticism, and there is no surer sign that a man is on the way to Modernism than when he begins to show his dislike for this system.

Modernists and their admirers should remember the proposition condemned by Pius IX: The method and principles which have served the doctors of scholasticism when treating of theology no longer correspond with the exigencies of our time or the progress of science (Syll. Prop. 13). They exercise all their ingenuity in diminishing the force and falsifying the character of tradition, so as to rob it of all its weight. But for Catholics the second Council of Nicea will always have the force of law, where it condemns those who dare, after the impious fashion of heretics, to deride the ecclesiastical traditions, to invent novelties of some kind . . .or endeavour by malice or craft to overthrow any one of the legitimate traditions of the Catholic Church; and Catholics will hold for law, also, the profession of the fourth Council of Constantinople: We therefore profess to conserve and guard the rules bequeathed to the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church by the Holy and most illustrious Apostles, by the orthodox Councils, both general and local, and by every one of those divine interpreters the Fathers and Doctors of the Church. Wherefore the Roman Pontiffs, Pius IV and Pius IX, ordered the insertion in the profession of faith of the following declaration: I most firmly admit and embrace the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and other observances and constitutions of the Church. The Modernists pass the same judgment on the most holy Fathers of the Church as they pass on tradition; decreeing, with amazing effrontery that, while personally most worthy of all veneration, they were entirely ignorant of history and criticism, for which they are only excusable on account of the time in which they lived. Finally, the Modernists try in every way to diminish and weaken the authority of the ecclesiastical magisterium itself by sacrilegiously falsifying its origin, character, and rights, and by freely repeating the calumnies of its adversaries. To all the band of Modernists may be applied those words which Our Predecessor wrote with such pain: To bring contempt and odium on the mystic Spouse of Christ, who is the true light, the children of darkness have been wont to cast in her face before the world a stupid calumny, and perverting the meaning and force of things and words, to depict her as the friend of darkness and ignorance, and the enemy of light, science, and progress (Motu-proprio, Ut mysticum, 14 March, 1891). This being so, Venerable Brethren, no wonder the Modernists vent all their gall and hatred on Catholics who sturdily fight the battles of the Church. But of all the insults they heap on them those of ignorance and obstinacy are the favorites. When an adversary rises up against them with an erudition and force that render him redoubtable, they try to make a conspiracy of silence around him to nullify the effects of his attack, while in flagrant contrast with this policy towards Catholics, they load with constant praise the writers who range themselves on their side, hailing their works, excluding novelty in every page, with choruses of applause; for them the scholarship of a writer is in direct proportion to the recklessness of his attacks on antiquity, and of his efforts to undermine tradition and the ecclesiastical magisterium; when one of their number falls under the condemnations of the Church the rest of them, to the horror of good Catholics, gather round him, heap public praise upon him, venerate him almost as a martyr to truth. The young, excited and confused by all this glamour of praise and abuse, some of them afraid of being branded as ignorant, others ambitious to be considered learned, and both classes goaded internally by curiosity and pride, often surrender and give themselves up to Modernism. And here we have already some of the artifices employed by Modernists to exploit their wares. What efforts they make to win new recruits! They seize upon chairs in the seminaries and universities, and gradually make of them chairs of pestilence. From these sacred chairs they scatter, though not always openly, the seeds of their doctrines; they proclaim their teachings without disguise in congresses; they introduce them and make them the vogue in social institutions. Under their own names and under pseudonyms they publish numbers of books, newspapers, reviews, and sometimes one and the same writer adopts a variety of pseudonyms to trap the incautious reader into believing in a whole multitude of Modernist writers – in short they leave nothing untried, in action, discourses, writings, as though there were a frenzy of propaganda upon them. And the results of all this? We have to lament at the sight of many young men once full of promise and capable of rendering great services to the Church, now gone astray. And there is another sight that saddens Us too: that of so many other Catholics, who, while they certainly do not go so far as the former, have yet grown into the habit, as though they had been breathing a poisoned atmosphere, of thinking and speaking and writing with a liberty that ill becomes Catholics. They are to be found among the laity, and in the ranks of the clergy, and they are not wanting even in the last place where one might expect to meet them, in religious institutes. If they treat of biblical questions, it is upon Modernist principles; if they write history, it is to search out with curiosity and to publish openly, on the pretext of telling the whole truth and with a species of ill concealed satisfaction, everything that looks to them like a stain in the history of the Church. Under the sway of certain a priori rules they destroy as far as they can the pious traditions of the people, and bring ridicule on certain relics highly venerable from their antiquity. They are possessed by the empty desire of being talked about, and they know they would never succeed in this were they to say only what has been always said. It may be that they have persuaded themselves that in all this they are really serving God and the Church – in reality they only offend both, less perhaps by their works themselves than by the spirit in which they write and by the encouragement they are giving to the extravagances of the Modernists. That We make no delay in this matter is rendered necessary especially by the fact that the partisans of error are to be sought not only among the Church’s open enemies; they lie hid, a thing to be deeply deplored and feared, in her very bosom and heart, and are the more mischievous, the less conspicuously they appear. We allude, Venerable Brethren, to many who belong to the Catholic laity, nay, and this is far more lamentable, to the ranks of the priesthood itself, who, feigning a love for the Church, lacking the firm protection of philosophy and theology, nay more, thoroughly imbued with the poisonous doctrines taught by the enemies of the Church, and lost to all sense of modesty, vaunt themselves as reformers of the Church; and, forming more boldly into line of attack, assail all that is most sacred in the work of Christ, not sparing even the person of the Divine Redeemer, whom, with sacrilegious daring, they reduce to a simple, mere man.

Though they express astonishment themselves, no one can justly be surprised that We number such men among the enemies of the Church, if, leaving out of consideration the internal disposition of soul, of which God alone is the judge, he is acquainted with their tenets, their manner of speech, their conduct. Nor indeed will he err in accounting them the most pernicious of all the adversaries of the Church.For as We have said, they put their designs for her ruin into operation not from without but from within; hence, the danger is present almost in the very veins and heart of the Church, whose injury is the more certain, the more intimate is their knowledge of her. Moreover they lay the axe not to the branches and shoots, but to the very root, that is, to the faith and its deepest fires. And having struck at this root of immortality, they proceed to disseminate poison through the whole tree, so that there is no part of Catholic truth from which they hold their hand, none that they do not strive to corrupt. Further, none is more skillful, none more astute than they, in the employment of a thousand noxious arts; for they double the parts of rationalist and Catholic, and this so craftily that they easily lead the unwary into error; and since audacity is their chief characteristic, there is no conclusion of any kind from which they shrink or which they do not thrust forward with pertinacity and assurance. To this must be added the fact, which indeed is well calculated to deceive souls, that they lead a life of the greatest activity, of assiduous and ardent application to every branch of learning, and that they possess, as a rule, a reputation for the strictest morality. Finally, and this almost destroys all hope of cure, their very doctrines have given such a bent to their minds, that they disdain all authority and brook no restraint; and relying upon a false conscience, they attempt to ascribe to a love of truth that which is in reality the result of pride and obstinacy.

OTHER QUOTATIONS OF POPE ST. PIUS X:

“Our Apostolic Mandate requires from Us that We watch over the purity of the Faith and the integrity of Catholic discipline. It requires from Us that We protect the faithful from evil and error; especially so when evil and error are presented in dynamic language which, concealing vague notions and ambiguous expressions with emotional and high-sounding words, is likely to set ablaze the hearts of men in pursuit of ideals which, whilst attractive, are nonetheless nefarious.“ It is an error to believe that Christ did not teach a determined body of doctrine applicable to all times and to all men, but rather that He inaugurated a religious movement adapted, or to be adapted, to different times and different places.” – Pope St. Pius X

The Motu Proprio, issued on September 1, 1910, contained an Introduction in which Saint Pius X declares:

• “We believe that no bishop is ignorant of the fact that the wily Modernists have not abandoned their plans for disturbing the peace of the Church since they were unmasked by the encyclical Pascendi dominici gregis. For they have not ceased to seek out new recruits and to gather them into a secret alliance (foedus clandestinu).”

Pius X reiterates “it is the duty of all bishops to exert themselves in defense of the Catholic Faith and most diligently to see to it that the integrity of the divine deposit suffers no loss. Likewise, it is most definitely Our duty to obey the commands of Christ the Savior, Who gave to Peter, whose position of authority We, though unworthy, have succeeded, the order: ‘confirm thy Brethren’.

********

On 15 December 1937, during his last consistory, Pope Pius XI strongly hinted to the cardinals that he expected Cardinal Pacelli to be his successor, saying “He is in your midst.” He had previously been quoted as saying: “When today the Pope dies, you’ll get another one tomorrow, because the Church continues. It would be a much bigger tragedy, if Cardinal Pacelli dies, because there is only one. I pray every day, God may send another one into one of our seminaries, but as of today, there is only one in this world.”

“I will fight this battle with the greatest energy on the inside of the Church, just as outside of it, even if the forces of evil may one day take advantage of my person, my actions, or my writings, as they try today to deform the history of the Church.”

– Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, Secretary of State to Pope Pius XI, who was to become:

POPE PIUS XII

"I am concerned about the confidences of the Virgin to the little Lucia of Fatima. This persistence of the Good Lady in face of the danger that threatens the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that the alteration of the Faith, in its liturgy, its theology, and its soul, would represent.

I hear around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments, and make her remorseful for her historical past. Well, my dear friend, I am convinced that the Church of Peter must affirm her past, or else she will dig her own grave.

“The preaching of the faith has lost nothing of its relevance in our times. The Church has a sacred duty to proclaim it without any whittling-down, just as Christ revealed it, and no consideration of time or circumstance can lessen the strictness of this obligation.”- Pope Pius XII

“To separate tabernacle from altar is to separate two things which by their origin and nature should remain united. – Pope Pius XII

Suppose, dear friend, that Communism is the most visible among the organs of subversion against the Church and the Tradition of Divine Revelation. Thus, we will witness the invasion of everything that is spiritual: philosophy, science, law, teaching, the arts, the media, literature, theater, and religion.” – Pope Pius XII

CONCLAVE 1958: THE TAKEOVER – John XXIII

The papal conclave of 1958, which was held to elect a successor to Pope Pius XII, commenced on 26 October 1958. Cardinal Giuseppe Siri, then 52 years old, was considered a strong candidate in the election. Siri was viewed then- and throughout his life - as staunchly conservative. On the evening of 26 October, the first day of the conclave, white smoke was seen coming from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel, a traditional signal to the crowds in the square outside that a pope has been elected. At 6 pm, after the smoke had continued white for several minutes, Vatican Radio told the world, “The smoke is white… There is absolutely no doubt. A Pope has been elected.”[3] No announcement was made, however, and after about half an hour, the smoke turned black, indicating that there was no result. Vatican Radio corrected its report.[1] Two days later, on 28 October, it was announced that Cardinal Angelo Roncalli had been elected pope, and would take the name John XXIII. -Wikipedia

What really went on in the Vatican on Oct 26, 1958?

That name was symbolic: No pope had taken the name of John since Pope John XXII died in 1334. That was because there was an Anti-pope John XXIII from 1410-1415.

John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli) smoking a cigarette with radical socialists.

A dossier had been maintained by the Holy Office on Angelo Roncalli which read “suspected of Modernism.” This file dated back to 1925, when Roncalli was removed from his Professorship at the Lateran Seminary in mid-semester and sent to Bulgaria. Of particular concern was Roncalli’s continuing, close association with the priest, Ernesto Buonaiuti, who was excommunicated for heresy in 1926.

When Angelo Roncalli was the nuncio to France, he appointed a thirty-third degree Freemason and close friend, the Baron Yves Marsaudon, as head of the French branch of the Knights of Malta, a Catholic lay order. Yves Marsaudon, 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason: “The sense of universalism that is rampant in Rome these days is very close to our purpose for existence… with all our hearts we support the revolution of John XXIII.”

When Roncalli was made a cardinal, he receive the red hat from his friend, Vincent Auriol, an atheist and notoriously anti-clerical socialist Vincent Auriol, President of France, whom he had described as “an honest socialist.”

The Sillon was an organization which was condemned by Pope St. Pius X. John XXIII wrote about its founder, Marc Sangnier: “The powerful fascination of his words, of his soul, had thrilled me, and the liveliest memories of my entire priestly youth are for his person and his political and social activity…”

“AGGIORNAMENTO”: THE GREAT UPDATING: On 25 January 1959, John XXIII announced his intention to call a general council. Aggiornamento was the name given to his program. It will be remembered that Modernism was a call for the Church to keep up with “the times”. So, John XXIII’s call for “Aggiornamento” – Italian for “A bringing up to date”, was paramount to an open declaration of Modernism.

The forked-tongues of the revolutionaries are very evident in the fact that, while they claim to be "updating", their favorite excuse was "in the early Church" (as if all of this sacrilegious nonsense was anything like early Church.) Of course, this was more than a simple excuse: it implied the the Church had been in a state of progressive deterioration for her entire history. That is why we must move forward into the past......

On July 18, 1959, John XXIII suppressed the prayer: “Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or Islam.” In his Apostolic Brief on October 17, 1925, Pope Pius XI had ordered that this prayer be publicly recited on the feast of Christ the King.

He then introduced the first change into the Canon of the Mass by inserting the name of St. Joseph. The request to have St. Joseph’s name placed in the canon was officially rejected by Pope Pius VII on September 16, 1815, and by Pope Leo XIII on August 15, 1892.

Psalm Judica me was removed from the Mass, as well as the Last Gospel, and the second Confiteor.

John XXIII ordered the suppression of the prayers prescribed by Pope Leo XIII to be recited after low Mass.

The laws of fast and abstinence from meat were dropped.

John XXIII personally consecrated Albino Luciani (the future John Paul I) a bishop on Dec. 27, 1958. Luciani was the son of a committed Socialist. As Patriarch of Venice, Albino Luciani stated about the French Revolution: “…the intentions of those who had kindled insurrection and revolution at the beginning had been very good ones: Liberty, fraternity and equality.” Luciani was named a “cardinal” by Paul VI. In his General Audience on September 13, 1978, John Paul I said: “Those are the truths: we must walk along the way of these truths, understanding them more and more, bringing ourselves up-to-date, proposing them in a form suited to the times. Pope Paul too had the same thought.”

“The Great Western Mexican Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, on the occasion of the death of John XXIII, makes known its sorrow for the disappearance of this great man who revolutionized the ideas, thoughts, and forms of the Roman Catholic liturgy His encyclicals Mater et Magistra and Pacem in Terris have revolutionized the concept favoring human rights and liberty. Mankind has lost a great man, and we Masons acknowledge his high principles, his humanitarianism, and his being a great liberal.The Reporter (El Informador), June 4, 1963

“To the memory of Angelo Roncalli, priest, Archbishop of Messamaris, Apostolic Nuncio in Paris, Cardinal of the Roman Church, Patriarch of Venice, Pope under the name of John XXIII, who has deigned to give us his benediction, his understanding, and his protection.” – Charles Riandey, a sovereign Grand Master of secret societies, in his preface to a book by Yves Marsaudon (State Minister of the Supreme Council of French secret societies)

A second preface to the book was addressed to “his august continuer, His Holiness Pope Paul VI.” “I know Cardinal Roncalli very well. He was a Deist and a Rationalist whose strength did not lie in the ability to believe in miracles and to venerate the sacred.” – Carl Jacob Burckhardt, freemason, in the Journal de Geneve

MONTINI AND JOHN XXIII

Cardinal Heenan, who was present at the 1958 conclave, said: “There was no great mystery about Pope John’s election. He was chosen because he was a very old man. His chief duty was to make Msgr. Montini (later Paul VI), the Archbishop of Milan, a cardinal so that he could be elected in the next conclave. That was the policy and it was carried out precisely.

THE TIMES, THEY ARE A’CHANGIN…..

Like the Marcellaise of the French Revolution, “The Times They are a’Changin” by Bob Dylan, (a Jew), is the battle cry of the this revolution.

“…Everything must change, everything must progress. Evolution seems to be the law that brings liberation. There must be a great deal that is true and good in this mentality.” - Paul VI – General Audience, June 27, 1973

The papal tiara renounced.

The papal tiara is a crown that was worn by popes from as early as the 8th century to the mid-20th. From 1143 the papal tiara was solemnly placed on the pope's head during a papal coronation.

 

The papal tiara also serves as a symbol of the papacy, as it appears on the coat of arms of the Holy See and the flag of Vatican City.

 

 

 

 

 

Paul VI, in a ceremony, renounced the papal tiara in a ceremony. It was then sold to a museum.

 

 

Paul VI's, action is all the more striking, if you consider that the absence of the papal tiara is what sybolizes the lack of a pope on the Sede-Vacante emblem, the coat of arms of the Holy See when it is vacant. The papal tiara is replaced by the umbracullum. This symbolizes both the lack of a Pope and the governance of the Camerlengo over the temporalities of the Holy See.

 

 

John Paul II, and his successors, were not crowned, they were “inaugurated”!

MASS IN THE VERNACULAR

On Nov. 29, 1964 the Mass was changed from Latin in the the vernacular, and it was now to be said on a table, placed in front of the altar. All talk of the Mass being a sacrifice is out, it is now a communal “meal” - that is why it's said on a table! And the priest must face the people, in order to give them due honor. All of those magnificent altars were left to collect dust - relics of past dark ages when people didn't know any better than to give honor and glory to God.

To separate tabernacle from altar is to separate two things which by their origin and their nature should remain united.- Pope Pius XII

The use of the Latin language prevailing in a great part of the Church affords at once an imposing sign of unity and an effective safeguard against the corruptions of true doctrine. Pope Pius XII, Mediator Dei, 1947, Sec. 60

The day the Church abandons her universal tongue is the day before she returns to the catacombs. Pope Pius XII

 

Paul VI abolished the Index of Forbidden Books in the notification Post Litteras Apostolicas of June 14, 1966 .

THE OATH AGAINST MODERNISM ABOLISHED:

The Oath Against Modernism promulgated by Pope St. Pius X in 1910, it was required of all clergy, pastors, confessors, preachers, religious superiors, and professors in philosphical-theological seminaries of the Catholic Church. Very understandably, it was abolished under Paul VI, 17 July 1967.

“I sincerely hold that the doctrine of Faith was handed down to us from the Apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same explanation (eodem sensu eodemque sententia). Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another, different from the one which the Church held previously......”

At the end of the Oath, he makes this solemn Promise before God Himself: “I promise that I shall keep all these articles faithfully, entirely, and sincerely, and guard them inviolate, in no way deviating from them in teaching or in any way in word or in writing. Thus I promise, this I swear, so help me God, and these holy Gospels of God which I touch with my hand.”

“On the other hand, She [the Church] is also trying to adapt herself and assimilate herself to the world’s ways; She is taking off her distinctive sacral garment, for She wants to feel more human and earthly. She is tending to let herself be absorbed by the social and temporal milieu. She has almost been seized by human respect at the thought that She is different in some way and obliged to have a style of thought and life which is not that of the world. She is undergoing the world’s changes and degradations with conformist, almost avantegarde zeal.” – Paul VI, General Audience, Oct. 1, 1969

Those therefore who after the manner of wicked heretics dare to set aside Ecclesiastical Traditions, and to invent any kind of novelty, or to reject any of those things entrusted to the Church, or who wrongfully and outrageously devise the destruction of any of those Traditions enshrined in the Catholic Church, are to be punished thus: IF THEY ARE BISHOPS, WE ORDER THEM TO BE DEPOSED; BUT IF THEY ARE MONKS OR LAY PERSONS, WE COMMAND THEM TO BE EXCLUDED FROM THE COMMUNITY.”– Second Council of Nicaea (787 A.D.);

“Far, far from the clergy be the love of novelty!” – St. Pope Pius X

The Novus Ordo Missae – the New “Mass”

The crowning blow was to take the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and deform it to make it fit the new religion. This occurred in 1969. Paul VI wrote the New “Mass”, also known as the “Novus Ordo Missae” with the help of six Protestant ministers. Many prayers were discarded, words were left out of others, emphasis was shifted, parts fused etc., so that nothing was left to stand in the way of the masonic principles - worship of Man. In the New “Mass”, all emphasis is on “our brothers and sisters” (Man) instead of God. Most acts of reverence were banned, while new “rituals” of irreverence, such as the “Rite of Peace” were instituted; Communion is given in the hand, etc. The “mass” is said either with the priest's back to the tabernacle or it has been removed, communion rails were removed, ornamentation done away with as much as possible -incense, rich vestments, architecture, no silence, no hushed tones. The magnificent Gregorian chant has been traded for nonsensical guitar renderings, polka masses etc.

"A great big Polka mass!".....

At the same time, the emphasis on sin and the unworthiness of man was pushed into the background as much as possible. What little mention there is of sin, is shifted from an offense against God, to an offense against “our brothers and sisters”. Besides the prayers, most or all of the brief versicles and responses were banned, as well as twenty-five signs of the Cross, twelve genuflections, and many lesser acts of reverence; to the tabernacle, to the crucifix, to the Blessed Sacrament, and at the pronunciation of the Names of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints. These acts of reverence include bowing the head, elevation of the eyes, kissing the altar stone and its relics, turning towards the tabernacle and the crucifix, and the subdued tone of voice.

Everything centers on Man, all is to please Man, The music, the guitars, what do the people like! (really they think it is nonsense) Man is inherently Good. All will be saved.

NOTICE THE LOCATION OF THE TABERNACLE

The priest, was blended into the “Community.” Also his priesthood, and his priestly powers are faded out. Only a priest can offer sacrifice. The idea of “Authority”, over the people is phased out, religious anarchy in other words. The priest became one of “us”.

The individual has been taken away and replaced him with “the community.” Even the priest is denied private prayers. The revolution detests the individual person, with a mind and a will, and an eternal destiny of his own, with a personal faith and an divinely imposed obligations.

All reference to sacrifice is discarded and replaced with thoughts of a meal. The most blatant symbol of this is the fact that a table replaced the altar. Furthermore, the priest is now called the “president”, which means he is simply presiding over what everyone is doing together.

 

In God's order, men are given a role of authority over women. In the New “Mass” women are given a place in the liturgy, and their heads not covered.

Reference to Heaven, is replaced with simply earthly good and happiness

Almost all reference to the Blessed Virgin have been cast out.

THIS was outlawed!

SANCTUS! SANCTUS!, SANCTUS!

Yet, the Church teaches: “....in virtue of Our Apostolic authority, We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us. We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its full force notwithstanding the previous constitutions and decrees of the Holy See, as well as any general or special constitutions or edicts of provincial or synodal councils, and notwithstanding the practice and custom of the aforesaid churches, established by long and immemorial prescription – except, however, if more than two hundred years’ standing.....”-Quo Primum of Pope St. Pius V, 1570

DESACRALIZATION:

The future “Pope” Benedict XVI referred to what they were doing as “desacralization”: “The desacralization of the ministries of the Church seemed to represent the newness of Christianity.” – Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) International Symposium on the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Conciliar Decree, Presbyterorum Ordinis (23-28 October 1995)

 

Desacralize – dictionary definitions:

1. remove the religious or sacred status or significance from.

2. to divest of sacred qualities or status

3. to remove the aura of sacredness from; secularize

RATZINGER (Benedict XVI): “SUSPECT OF HERESY”: On 28 April 1969, Paul VI announced the foundation of the International Theological Commission, a organ intended to be parallel to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. On that occasion, the French magazine Informations Catholiques Internationales (n. 336 – May 15, 1969, p. 9), reported the story and gave the list of the 30 theologians chosen for the Commission. Among them, JOSEPH RATZINGER: German, age 45, dogmatic theology, ecumenism; previously suspect [of heresy] by the Holy Office; member of the Faith and Ecumenism Commission; outstanding work in collaboration with Karl Rahner: Primacy and Episcopate

“COUNTER-SYLLABUS”: “If it is desirable to offer a diagnosis of the text [of the Vatican II document, Gaudium et Spes] as a whole, we might say that (in conjunction with the texts on religious liberty and world religions) it is a revision of the Syllabus of Pius IX , a kind of counter syllabus… As a result, the one-sidedness of the position adopted by the Church under Pius IX and Pius X in response to the situation created by the new phase of history inaugurated by the French Revolution, was, to a large extent, corrected…” – Benedict XVI, Principles of Catholic Theology, 1982

DESECRATION OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST

“Eucharistic devotion such as is noted in the silent visit by the devout in church must not be thought of as a conversation with God. This would assume that God was present there locally and in a confined way. To justify such an assertion shows a lack of understanding of the Christological mysteries of the very concept of God. This is repugnant to the serious thinking of the man who knows about the omnipresence of God. To go to church on the ground that one can visit God who is present there is a senseless act which modern man rightfully rejects.”– Die Sacramentale Begrundung Christliche Existenz by Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI)

THIS IS HOW CATHOLICS ADORE OUR LORD PRESENT IN THE HOLY EUCHARIST:

Communion in the Hand

Communion in the hand began to be introduced in Europe in the late 1960's. Paul VI, while making an apparent opposition, granted permission to some, then let it up to the bishops, and we all know where it went from there.

 

 

And soon the "Eucharistic ministers came....one lame plea that it was too hard for the priest or he had better things to do on Sunday than give our Lord the blessed Sacrament to the faithful.

 

 

Let us see what the Long-standing Tradition of the Church is on this:

Pope St. Sixtus I ( 115-125): "it is prohibited for the faithful to even touch the sacred vessels, or receive in the hand";

The Council held at Saragozza (380), it was decided to punish with excommunication anyone who dared to continue the practice of Communion in the hand;

The local council at Rouen, France (650) stated, “Do not put the Eucharist in the hands of any layman or laywomen but only in their mouths”;

The Council of Constantinople (692) which was known as in trullo (not one of the ecumenical councils held there) prohibited the faithful from giving Communion to themselves. It decreed an excommunication of one week’s duration for those who would do so in the presence of a bishop, priest or deacon;

Council of Trent: "To omit nothing doctrinal on so important a subject, we now come to speak of the minister of the Sacrament, a point, however, on which scarcely anyone is ignorant. The pastor then will teach, that to priests alone has been given power to consecrate and administer the Holy Eucharist. That the unvarying practice of the Church has also been, that the faithful receive the Sacrament from the hand of the priest, and that the priest communicate himself, has been explained by the Council of Trent; and the same holy Council has shown that this practice is always to be scrupulously adhered to, stamped, as it is, with the authoritative impress of Apostolic tradition, and sanctioned by the illustrious example of our Lord himself, who, with His own hands, consecrated and gave to His disciples, His most sacred body. To consult as much as possible, for the dignity of this so August a Sacrament, not only is its administration confided exclusively to the priestly order; but the Church has also, by an express law, prohibited any but those who are consecrated to religion, unless in case of necessity, to touch the sacred vessels, the linen or other immediate necessaries for consecration. Priest and people may hence learn, what piety and holiness they should possess who consecrate, administer, or receive the Holy of Holies." (Council of Trent, Session 13, Chapter 8)

GOAL REACHED: (!)

https://youtube.com/watch?v=qWI4UyesL0U

During the late 1960's permission began to be granted to attend Mass on Saturday evening, supposedly “anticipating” Sunday. Soon, for many, Sunday the Christian Lord's day, turned into “Funday” - for Man, of course.

"Off the deep end we go....."

There was obviously a concerted effort to make the whole thing ridiculous; to make the Church into a laughing stock. Young people were expected to take this serious? Obviously God is not being worshiped and adored - if the thing has been “desacralized”, so what is this all about?

 

 

The idea was to get across that Catholic = idiot. Clumsy English, stupid banners, “Gregorian? Chant” in English etc.

Is anyone still amazed that these characters molest children?

 

 

What are the fruits of all of this "people-pleasing"? In America, 4 out of 10 people who were raised “Catholic”, no longer identify as such…..In Ireland weekly Mass attendance levels in Dublin are currently put at 20-22 per cent (of the population), while being as low as 2-3 per cent in some working-class parishes….. No wonder!

 

 

BAPTISM BECAME THE RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION:The new rite for the baptism of infants was introduced on June 1, 1970. The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) was issued on January 6, 1972. Changes (alterations, deletions, and insertions) were made in the ritual to express the new theology. The documents relating to the new rite of Baptism, or as it is called “The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) contains 50 pages of small print with only a single passing reference to original sin while stressing that “baptism is above all the sacrament of that faith by which men and women are incorporated into the Church, built up together in the Spirit into a house where God lives, into a holy nation and a royal priesthood. It is a sacred bond of unity linking all who have been signed by it.’ They have changed the intent of baptism from “removal of original sin” to “initiation into the Christian community”. In the new rite, the candidate for baptism is not even asked if he believes. The candidate for baptism is no longer required to make a baptismal vow. In addition, all the exorcisms of the Devil are omitted in Paul VI’s new rite of Baptism. Although Satan is mentioned in the texts, he is not banished. It should be noted that “Initiation” is a masonic word, not a Catholic one.

Then of course, it wasn't long before the church swimming pools came......

NEW RITE OF HOLY ORDERS:

On June 18, 1968, Paul VI — signed an “apostolic constitution” to change the Roman Catholic rite of ordination. These changes touched not only some of the more peripheral ceremonies but the very substance of the sacrament itself. The very words which Pope Pius XII, in 1947, had definitively decreed were necessary for the validity of the sacrament of holy orders, were changed by Paul VI.

Traditional Roman Catholic Form (episcopal consecration), per Pope Pius XII (1947):

[Translation:] “Perfect in Thy priest the fullness of thy ministry and, clothing him in all the ornaments of spiritual glorification, sanctify him with the Heavenly anointing.”

Modernist Form, per Paul VI (1968):

[Translation:] “So now pour out upon this chosen one that power which is from you, the governing Spirit whom you gave to your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, the Spirit given by him to the holy apostles, who founded the Church in every place to be your temple for the unceasing glory and praise of your name.”

These words do not even in any way express that what is taking place is the consecration of a bishop. They do not even ask the Holy Ghost to make the ordinand into a bishop. Instead, even if one were to say that the totally abstruse phrase “Spiritum principalem” (“Governing Spirit”) is a clear reference to the Holy Ghost, the fact remains that it is not stated just what the Holy Ghost is supposed to be doing. God the Father is being asked to “pour out” the Holy Ghost (or at least that “Governing Spirit”) – but to do what? To what end? We’re not told..

A sacramental form that does not express what it is supposed to accomplish is invalid.

In addition to changing the sacramental form of priestly and episcopal ordination, in his document Pontificalis Romani Paul VI abolished the major order of subdeacon and all of the minor orders (acolyte, exorcist, lector, and porter), none of which are sacraments, but whose denial was condemned by the Council of Trent and which betrays the Modernists in their lie that they to seek to restore things to “antiquity”:

“…from the very beginning of the Church the names of the following orders and the duties proper to each one are known to have been in use, namely those of the subdeacon, acolyte, exorcist, rector, and porter, though not of equal rank; for the subdiaconate is classed among the major orders by the Fathers and the sacred Councils, in which we also read very frequently of other inferior orders” (Council of Trent, Session 23, Ch. 2; Denz. 958)

“If anyone says that besides the priesthood there are in the Catholic Church no other orders, both major and minor, by which as by certain grades, there is an advance to the priesthood: let him be anathema” (Council of Trent, Session 23, Canon 2; Denz. 962)

According to a decree of the Novus Ordo “Sacred Congregation of Rites” dated August 15, 1968, Paul VI’s new rite of ordination became obligatory for the entire Latin church as of Easter Sunday, April 6, 1969. Since this date, they have not validly consecrated a single bishop in the Latin rite, and probably not ordained a single valid priest, either.

DESTRUCTION OF MARRIAGE

Annulments: Marriages are null only if a diriment impediment existed at the time of the marriage. The diriment impediments in the true Church are very clear and very rare. In 1930, nine marriages were declared null (annulled) in the United States.

In 1970, the bishops of the United States obtained permission from the Holy See to modify canonical procedures in the adjudication of marriage cases. One judge, and not three, could render a decision, and cases could be heard in the diocese of the person seeking the annulment; in addition, appeal of a declaration of nullity to another court became discretionary rather than obligatory. The latter provision lapsed with the promulgation of the new Code of Canon Law in 1983, which expanded the grounds of invalid consent: “they are incapable of contracting marriage…who are not capable of assuming the essential obligations of matrimony due to causes of a psychic nature” (canon 1095). (Wikipedia)

In the United States, there were 338 "annulments" granted in 1968; 28,918 in 1974 and 50,000 in 2002.

JEWS

Just prior to his death, John XXIII composed the following prayer for the Jews:We realize today how blind we have been throughout the centuries and how we did not appreciate the beauty of the Chosen People or the features of our favored brothers. We are aware of the divine mark of Cain placed upon our forehead. In the course of centuries our brother, Abel, has been lying bleeding and in tears on the ground through our fault, only because we had forgotten Thy love. Forgive us our unjustified condemnation of the Jews. Forgive us that by crucifying them we have crucified You for the second time. Forgive us. We did not know what we were doing.”

So, according to John XXIII, Catholics are the “sons of Cain”……..

John XXIII once greeted some Jewish visitors with the words, “I am Joseph, your brother.” The patriarch Joseph said this to his brothers when they came into Egypt during the time of famine. After having been sold into slavery by his brothers many years before, Joseph had risen to the highest position in the kingdom of Egypt, and therefore was free to dispense the treasures of the kingdom at his pleasure. Just as Joseph, who was not an Egyptian, found himself in the highest position of the Egyptians, John XXIII told the Jews that he was “Joseph, your brother” because he was actually a Jewish infiltrator at the very highest position in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.

The phrase “perfidious Jews” was taken out of the Good Friday Liturgy in 1960. The word perfidious means “unfaithful.”

When John XXIII died June 3rd, 1963, the Chief Rabbi of Rome and other leaders of the Jewish community gathered with hundreds of thousands in Saint Peter’s Square to mourn

PAUL VI: Pope or Jewish High Priest?

Paul VI wore the ephod, a vestment of a Jewish high priest. The twelve stones represent the twelve tribes of Israel. Not only is this the breast-plate of a Jewish High-Priest, but according to the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry by Mackey, the ephod is also “worn in the (Masonic) American Chapters of the Royal Arch, by the High-Priest as an official part of his official ornaments.”

John Paul II, Meeting on the Roots of Anti-Semitism, 1997: “This people has been called and led by God, Creator of Heaven and Earth. Their existence then is not a mere natural or cultural happening… It is a supernatural one. This people continues in spite of everything to be the people of the covenant…”

On August 12, 2002, the American bishops in union with John Paul II issued a document on the Jews.

“… campaigns that target Jews for conversion to Christianity are no longer theologically acceptable in the Catholic Church.”

“Whatever the depiction… the theological message is the same – God’s election has now passed to the Christian people; and the Church, the true Israel, may triumph, She who confesses the saving truth brought by Christ. At Vatican II, the Catholic Church finally revised this teaching and understood to what extent it contradicts the Bible itself"….... "John Paul II recalled on numerous occasions the permanence of the First Covenant, which was never revoked by God. Today, we desire to work together with our elder brothers toward reconciliation and fraternal dialogue. Yet we must have the humility to recognize that the doctrine of contempt and the “theology of substitution” – making the Church to be the new and only Israel of God – still penetrate the minds of a large number.” –Joseph Dore, “Archbishop” of Strasbourg, France, Speech to B‟nai B‟rith (Jewish Freemasons), August, 2003

John Paul II and Israeli Prime Minister Sharon exchange a masonic handshake

Message to Chief Rabbi of Rome, May 23, 2004: “To the most distinguished Dr. Riccardo Di Segni, Chief Rabbi of Rome. Shalom! With deep joy I join the Jewish Community of Rome which is celebrating the centenary of the Great Synagogue in Rome, a symbol and a reminder of the millennial presence in this city of the people of the Covenant of Sinai. For more than 2000 years your community has been an integral part of life in the city; it can boast of being the most ancient Jewish community in Western Europe and of having played an important role in spreading Judaism on this Continent. Today’s commemoration,therefore, acquires a special significance…Since I am unable to attend in person, I have asked my Vicar General Camillo Ruini, to represent me; he is accompanied by Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Holy See‟s Commission for Relations with the Jews. They formally express my desire to be with you this day. In offering you my respectful greeting, distinguished Dr. Riccardo Di Segni, I extend my cordial thoughts to all the Members of the Community, to their President, Mr. Leone Elio Paserman, and to all who are gathered to witness once again to the importance and vigor of the religious patrimony that is celebrated every Saturday in the Great Synagogue of Rome… Today’s celebration, in whose joy we all readily join, recalls the first century of this majestic Synagogue. It stands on the banks of the Tiber, witnessing with the harmony of its architectural lines to faith and to praise of the Almighty. The Christian Community of Rome, through the Successor of Peter, joins you in thanking the Lord for this happy occasion. As I said during the Visit I mentioned, we greet you as our, beloved brothers in the faith of Abraham, our Patriarch… you continue to be the first-born people of the Covenant …[These friendly relations] saw us united in commemorating the victims of the Shoah especially those who were wrenched from their families and from your beloved Jewish Community in Rome in October 1943 and interned in Auschwitz. May their memory be blessed and induce us to work as brothers and sisters……the Church has not hesitated to express deep sorrow at the failures of her sons and daughters in every age and, in an act of repentance, has asked forgiveness for their responsibility connected in any way with the scourges of anti-Judaism and anti-Semitism… Today… we are addressing a fervent prayer to the Eternal One, to the God of Shalom, so that enmity and hatred may no longer overpower those who turn to our father, Abraham – Jews, Christians and Muslims… Our meeting today is, as it were, in preparation for your imminent solemnity of Shavu’ot and of our Pentecost which proclaim the fullness of our respective paschal celebrations. May these feasts see us united in praying David’s paschal Hallel.”- (L‟Osservatore Romano, June 2, 2004, p. 7.)

Benedict XVI in the synagogue

Benedict XVI, Milestones, 1998, pages 53-54: “I have ever more come to the realization that Judaism… and the Christian faith described in the New Testament are two ways of appropriating Israel’s Scriptures, two ways that, in the end, are both determined by the position one assumes with regard to the figure of Jesus of Nazareth. The Scripture we today call Old Testament is itself open to both ways…”

“We can claim with gratitude that no other Pope in history has visited as many synagogues as Benedict XVI.” – “Cardinal” Kurt Koch

Benedict XVI, Zenit News story, Sept. 5, 2000: “[W]e are in agreement that a Jew, and this is true for believers of other religions, does not need to know or acknowledge Christ as the Son of God in order to be saved…”

Benedict XVI, God and the World, 2000, pages 150-151: “their [the Jews] No to Christ

brings the Israelites into conflict with the subsequent acts of God, but at the same time we know that they are assured of the faithfulness of God. They are not excluded from salvation…”

On December 14, 2012, Francis celebrated Hanukkah with Jews in Argentina which included Francis lighting a menorah - openly practising Judaism........In 2007, Francis attended Jewish Rosh Hashanah services at a synagogue in Argentina. He told the Jewish congregation during his visit that he went to the synagogue to examine his heart, “like a pilgrim, together with you, my elder brothers”.

On July 7, 2008 Francis endorsed Rabbi Sergio Bergman’s books. Francis called him a “believer” and said: “his job is the one of a rabbi who as our master helps us”.

Francis and Rabbi Skorka

When Francis was Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires, he and Rabbi Abraham Skorka co-wrote a book of dialogues on Judaism and Roman Catholicism titled, “On Heaven and Earth,” had a similarly themed TV show called “Bible, A Dialogue for Today,” and offered prayers from each other’s pulpits.”

 

 

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, p. 220: Francis says to Jewish Rabbi Skorka: “I did not forget how you invited me twice to pray and to speak in the synagogue, and I invited you to speak to my seminarians about values.”

Francis On Heaven and Earth, p. 188: “The Church officially recognizes that the People of Israel continue to be the Chosen People. Nowhere does it say: ‘You lost the game, now it is our turn.’It is a recognition of the People of Israel.”

On October 11, 2012 Francis gave Rabbi Abraham Skorka an honorary degree at a “Catholic” university. After the rabbi received the degree, he said: “We are waiting for the Messiah, but in order for him to come we have to prepare the land….”

When he speaks about evangelization, the idea is to evangelize Christians or Catholics,” to reach “higher dimensions of faith” and a deepened commitment to social justice. This is the idea of evangelization that Bergoglio is stressing – not to evangelize Jews. This he told me, on several opportunities.” – Rabbi Abraham Skorka

From the Vatican, 4 September 2013, In his letter to Eugenio Scalfari “You also asked me, …what should be said to the Jewish brethren concerning the promise that God made to them: is that an empty promise? This question, believe me, is a radical one for us Christians because with the help of God, especially in the light of the Second Vatican Council, we have rediscovered that the Jewish people remain for us the holy root from which Jesus was born. I too have cultivated many friendships through the years with my Jewish brothers in Argentina and often while in prayer, as my mind turned to the terrible experience of the Shoah, I looked to God. What I can tell you, with Saint Paul, is that God has never neglected his faithfulness to the covenant with Israel, and that, through the awful trials of these last centuries, the Jews have preserved their faith in God. And for this, we, the Church and the whole human family, can never be sufficiently grateful to them. Moreover, persevering with faith in the God of the Covenant, they remind everyone, including us Christians, that we wait unceasingly as pilgrims for the return of the Lord, and that therefore we should be open to him and not remain entrenched in our achievements.”

FREEMASONS

When Angelo Roncalli was the nuncio to France, he appointed a thirty-third degree Freemason and close friend, the Baron Yves Marsaudon, as head of the French branch of the Knights of Malta, a Catholic lay order. Yves Marsaudon, 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason: “The sense of universalism that is rampant in Rome these days is very close to our purpose for existence… with all our hearts we support the revolution of John XXIII.”

FREEMASONS PRAISE JOHN XXIII’s “PACEM IN TERRIS”

“THE LIGHT OF THE GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE ENLIGHTENS THE VATICAN

“Generally speaking, the encyclical Pacem in Terris, addressed to all men of goodwill, has inspired comfort and hope. Both in democratic and Communist countries it has been universally praised. Only the Catholic dictatorships have frowned upon it and distorted its spirit.

“To us many concepts and doctrines it contains are familiar. We have heard them from illustrious rationalist, liberal, and socialist brothers. After having carefully weighed the meaning of each word, we might say that, the proverbial and typical Vatican literary rubbish notwithstanding, the encyclical Pacem in Terris a vigorous statement of Masonic doctrine… we do not hesitate to recommend its thoughtful reading.” the Masonic Bulletin, the official organ of the Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Masons, for the Masonic District of the United States of Mexico, located at 56 Lucerna St., Mexico, D.F. (Year 18, No. 220, May 1963)

“The Great Western Mexican Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, on the occasion of the death of John XXIII, makes known its sorrow for the disappearance of this great man who revolutionized the ideas, thoughts, and forms of the Roman Catholic liturgy His encyclicals Mater et Magistra and Pacem in Terris have revolutionized the concept favoring human rights and liberty. Mankind has lost a great man, and we Mason acknowledge his high principles, his humanitarianism, and his being a great liberal." The Reporter (El Informador), June 4, 1963

To the memory of Angelo Roncalli, priest, Archbishop of Messamaris, Apostolic Nuncio in Paris, Cardinal of the Roman Church, Patriarch of Venice, Pope under the name of John XXIII, who has deigned to give us his benediction, his understanding, and his protection.” – Charles Riandey, a sovereign Grand Master of secret societies, in his preface to a book by Yves Marsaudon (State Minister of the Supreme Council of French secret societies)

A second preface to the book was addressed to “his august continuer, His Holiness Pope Paul VI.” “I know Cardinal Roncalli very well. He was a Deist and a Rationalist whose strength did not lie in the ability to believe in miracles and to venerate the sacred.” – Carl Jacob Burckhardt, freemason, in the Journal de Geneve

John Paul I and Woijtila exchange a masonic handshake

Albino Luciani (John Paul I) was born the son of a committed Socialist. John XXIII personally consecrated Luciani a bishop on Dec. 27, 1958. As Patriarch of Venice, Albino Luciani stated about the French Revolution: “…the intentions of those who had kindled insurrection and revolution at the beginning had been very good ones, and the slogan proclaimed was ‘Liberty, Fraternity, Equality.’” He was in just 33 days, from Aug. 26 to Sept. 28, 1978. Luciani was named a “cardinal” by Paul VI. In his General Audience on September 13, 1978, John Paul I said: “Those are the truths: we must walk along the way of these truths, understanding them more and more, bringing ourselves up-to-date, proposing them in a form suited to the times. Pope Paul too had the same thought.”

In December of 1996, the Grand Orient Lodge of Italian Freemasonry offered John Paul II its greatest honor, because he had promoted “the values of universal Freemasonry: fraternity, respect for the dignity of man, and the spirit of tolerance, central points of the life of true masons.”

PAUL VI AUDIENCE HALL, BUILT IN 1971....

“I have been in the city of Rome several times. On one of these occasions I was in the Paul VI Audience Hall (Aula Paolo VI) where the papal udiences are held. I was in it, but I did not really see it. If you view the aula from the sky above it looks like the head of a serpent. And if you stand in the center aisle and look towards the front you see the serpent's wide open mouth and it's deadly fangs.

You see his scaly head which arches above, and his cold staring eyes. But at that time I saw none of these things, even though they were staring me in the face. My eyes were focused on the throne in front of the serpent's fangs, where sat the the one they called the “pope” It's beyond belief!” - Fr. Louis Campbell, Traditional Catholic priest

 

BENEDICT AND THE MASONIC CAPITAL OF ASTANA

Friday 6 November 2009, Benedict XVI received,the president of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, in audience. Nuzarbayev came out obviously pleased with the audience. Benedict sent him off with a blessing, for which the self-declared atheist thanked him enthusiastically. The Kazakh President presented the Benedict with a reproduction in silver and enamel of Astana’s Palace of Peace and Consensus – a mega-pyramid on a hilltop near the presidential palace, “which looks up towards Paradise”, he told the Benedict. To which he replied, “Yes, it is a place for concord”….

Now, let’s look more closely, and see what the source of that “concord” would be…….

 

The twin the golden pillars in Astana are named by the architect as “Boaz” and “Jachin”. Two brass pillars named Boaz and Jachin stood in the porch of Solomon’s Temple. This is judaeo-masoncic symbolism.

 

The Pyramid of Peace in Astana. We also see the occult magical principle of the the middle path of enlightenment in this design, where the middle piller in Astana is represented by the presidential palace. The pyramid of peace rises above in the background placing the all-seeing-eye of the Illuminati above the roof of the building.

 

Benedict, about to hand over the reigns to Francis. Note the masonic handshake

 

 

MORE DUBIOUS HAND GESTURES:

 

Anton, LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, making the Devil Horns Hand-sign.

 

 

 

The similar "I love you" in sign-language. Notice that the out-stretched thumbs is essential for this sign.

 

 

Apparently, the closed-in thumb, is not important to the Devil's Horns sign.

 

 

 

Which does this look like to you?

 

COMMUNISTS – Blood-Thirsty Comrades

“We finally arrived at the brief but resplendent pontificate of John XXIII. We saw the explosion of a thirst for justice, a craving for liberty, a rejection of the ‘consecration’ of the capitalist regime and the ‘excommunication’ of socialism, and an ardent desire for fraternal dialogue with the ‘infidel’.- Lucio Lombardi of the Italian Communist Party

“I see no reason why a Christian could not vote for a Marxist if he finds the latter to be more fit to follow such a political line and historical destiny.” – John XXIII

 

On the occasion of his eightieth birthday (Nov. 25, 1961), John XXIII received a telegram from Khrushchev offering his “congratulations and sincere wishes for good health and success in his noble aspirations to contribute to … peace on earth.”

 

January, 1959 Cuba fell into the hands of Communist-Atheist Fidel Castro. Thousands of Cubans died in front of Castro’s infamous ‘paredon’ (the wall). There was no discrimination, as far as sending people to the firing squad was concerned. Many of those who helped Castro gain power, were among the thousands who were shot.

 

The Cuban Memorial displayed at Tamiami Park, Miami, Florida: Each cross bears the name of a victim of Castro the brothers’ genocide against the Cuban people

 

 

Jan. 21, 1998, Pope John Paul II visited Cuba and met with Fidel Castro. Notice the masonic handshake, which is being covered somewhat by Castro’s left hand.

 

July, 2012, Benedicts visits Fidel Castro, just like John Paul II. And the same handshake…

 

 

September, 2015 Francis visited with Fidel Castro, just like his predecessors John Paul II and Benedict XVI….and yet another covered handshake…….

 

On Oct. 24, 2001, John Paul II apologized to the Communist regime in China for the “wrongs” of Catholics and praised the social justice of Red China.

 

The Catholic Church for her part regards with respect this impressive thrust and farsighted planning… The Church has very much at heart the values and objectives which are of primary importance also to modern China: solidarity, peace, social justice…”

Social justice in China includes a one-child-per-family policy, which is imposed by forced abortion and contraception. The Chinese Government kills millions of children every year, in addition to imprisoning, torturing and murdering Catholics. John Paul II stated that the Catholic Church and China are two ancient institutions not in opposition to one another.”– John Paul II, Oct. 24, 2001

Francis, Conversations, p. 39: “It’s true that I was, like the rest of my family, a practicing Catholic. But my mind was not made solely for religious questions… I read Our Word and Proposals, a publication by the Communist Party, and I loved every article ever written by Leonidas Barletta, one of their best-known members…”

 

Reuters, June 29, 2014….He was asked about a blog post in the Economist magazine that said he sounded like a Leninist when he criticised capitalism and called for radical economic reform. “I can only say that the communists have stolen our flag. The flag of the poor is Christian. Poverty is at the centre of the Gospel,” he said, citing Biblical passages about the need to help the poor, the sick and the needy. Communists say that all this is communism. Sure, twenty centuries later. So when they speak, one can say to them: ‘but then you are Christian’,” he said, laughing.

REDISTRIBUTION OF THE WEALTH: “Pope Francis on Friday called on United Nations leaders to take better care of the poor and advocated for a “legitimate redistribution” of wealth.

“Equitable economic and social progress can only be attained by joining scientific and technical abilities with an unfailing commitment to solidarity” with the poor, the Pope said, in addition to a new spirit of generosity, according to a transcript published by Vatican Radio. Francis called for “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.”

THE WORSHIP OF MAN INSTEAD OF GOD

Pope Pius XII: “A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?’”

“…whoever shouts is unjust! We must always respect the dignity of man standing before us, and above all the freedom of every man.” – John XXIII

Discourse, Sept. 4, 1968: “…the themes which today pre-occupy religion, be it Catholic or non-Catholic, all these converge from different directions upon one central, dominant focus, namely: man. ‘According to the almost unanimous opinion of believers and unbelievers alike, all things on earth should be related to man as their center and crown.’”

Audience, April 28, 1969: “In the final analysis, there are no true riches but man…

Angelus Address, July 20, 1969: “We would do well to meditate on man

Address, Aug. 1, 1969: “…do not let yourselves become discouraged by the obstacles and difficulties that constantly arise; do not lose faith in man.”

"Our message desires to be, above all, a solemn, moral ratification of this lofty Organization (the UN) this message is born from our historic experience. It is a as a specialist in humanity that we bring this Organization the approval of our more recent predecessors, the entire Catholic episcopate, and our own, convinced as we are that this Organization represents the obligatory pathway for modern civilization and world peace. “ (Paul VI, Address to the United Nations on October 4, 1965)

Put not your trust in princes, in man, in whom there is no salvation." - Psalm 146:3

Address, Feb. 7, 1971: “All honor then to man!”

General Audience, July 28, 1971: “The dignity of man! We will never be able to appreciate and honor it enough.”

Audience, Jan. 10, 1972: “For the demands of justice, Gentlemen, can only be gathered in the light of truth, that truth which is man…”

Address, April 11, 1973: “…always anxious to safeguard, above everything else, the primacy of man…”

Angelus Address, Jan. 27, 1974, Paul VI spoke positively of: “…the cult of man for man’s sake.”

Angelus Message, July 13, 1975: “…the most precious science of all, the science of knowing oneself, of reflecting, almost dreaming, about one’s own conscience… Long live the holiday free of other commitments, but occupied in exploring the secrets of one’s own life.”

Angelus Message, Sept. 26, 1976: “We are in ecstasy of admiration for the human countenance…”

Christmas Message, Dec. 25, 1976: “Let us honor fallen and sinful humanity.”

John Paul II: Man is Christ”

John Paul II, in his very first homily, Sunday, Oct. 22, 1978: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God‟ (Mt. 16:16). These words were spoken by Simon, son of Jonah, in the district of Caesarea Philippi… These words mark the beginning of Peter’s mission in the history of salvation… On this day and in this place these same words must again be uttered and listened to: You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Yes, Brothers and sons and daughters, these words first of all… please listen once again, today, in this sacred place, to the words uttered by Simon Peter. In those words is the faith of the Church. In those same words is the new truth, indeed, the ultimate and definitive truth about man: the Son of the living God – You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Dec. 25, 1978: “Christmas is the feast of man.”

John Paul II, Redemptor Hominis, March 4, 1979: “IN REALITY, THE NAME FOR THAT DEEP AMAZEMENT AT MAN’S WORTH AND DIGNITY IS THE GOSPEL, THAT IS TO SAY: THE GOOD NEWS. IT IS ALSO CALLED CHRISTIANITY.”

Feb. 11, 1984: “Christ’s resurrection has revealed, the glory of the future age, and, at the same time, has confirmed, the boast of the cross: the glory that is hidden in the very suffering of Christ and which has been and is often mirrored in human suffering, as an expression of man’s spiritual greatness. This glory must be acknowledged not only in the martyrs for the Faith but in many others also who, at times, even without belief in Christ, suffer and give their lives for the truth and for a just cause. In the sufferings of all of these people the great dignity of man is strikingly confirmed.”

General Audience, Feb. 22, 1984: “… so that consciences can be freed in the full truth of man, who is Christ, peace and mercy for everyone.”

Homily, August 10, 1985: “Today, in consecrating your cathedral, we ardently desire that it become a true temple of God and man…”

Dec. 25, 1985: “What is grace? Grace is precisely the manifestation of God… Grace is God as “our Father.” It is the Son of God… It is the Holy Spirit… Grace is, also

man…”

Homily, June 24, 1988: “… God wishes to encounter in man the whole of creation.”

Salvifici Doloris (# 22),

Homily, Dec. 10, 1989: “… make straight the way of the Lord and of man…”

Homily, Dec. 17, 1991: “Dear brothers and sisters, look to Christ, the Truth about man…”

Address to Ambassador of Tunisia, May 27, 2004, p. 8: “…For its part, the modest

Catholic community that lives in Tunisia has no other ambition than to witness to the dignity of man…”

“Mass” in honor of Muslim migrants (MAN)

Francis celebrated “mass” on a cute boat on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa to commemorate thousands of (Muslim) migrants who have died crossing the sea from North Africa; Catholics commemorate Saints and Martyrs who gave their life for God; not unbatptized migrants (Man).

GOOD FRIDAY STATIONS OF THE CROSS IN HONOR OF MAN

ROME, April 2014 — “Desperate migrants, suicidal failed business owners, battered women, torture victims and all people suffering in the world were remembered at a torch-lit Good Friday Way of the Cross procession presided over by Pope Francis at the Colosseum. With his head bowed and eyes often closed, Francis joined tens of thousands of faithful in listening to meditations read aloud in the ancient arena in downtown Rome. One meditation, read by Italian actress Virna Lisi, singled out the plight of child soldiers. Other readings recalled migrants who risk death in trying to reach the shores of affluent nations, women and children enslaved by human traffickers and inmates in overcrowded prisons. The selection of subjects reflected the pope’s resolve to focus the Catholic church’s attention on those who suffer, often on the margins of society.”

 

FRANCIS KISSING THE FEET OF A MUSLIM MIGRANT. Catholics kiss the foot of the pope, as the representative of Jesus Christ. Francis kisses the foot of an unbaptized man as a representative of Man.

 

THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST DENIED

NESTORIAN VESTMENTS:

Pope Paul wearing newly-designed Marian vestments, for Pontifical Mass, January 1967. Notice instead of saying “Mother of God”, it says “Mother of Jesus. This may seem unimportant and harmless, but it actually is a very subtle way of undermining the divinity of Jesus Christ. The title Mother of God, is very important. Mary was declared to be the Mother of God at the Council of Ephesus (431) in condemnation of the Nestorian heresy. This heresy claimed that the Son of God was only in Jesus, and that the divine and human natures were distinct from each other. The Council declared: “If anyone does not confess that the Emmanuel (Christ) in truth is God and that on this account the Holy Virgin is the Mother of God – since according to the flesh she brought forth the Word of God made flesh – let him be anathema.” Now: the title that the Nestorians used to replace “Mother of God” was “Mother of Man” or “Mother of Christ” So, you see……

Francis prays to Jesus to pray for him and intercede for him……..

Radio Vaticana 10/28/2013 – "At the centre of Pope Francis’ homily on Monday morning was the passage from the Gospel of Luke during which Jesus remained in prayer throughout the whole night before choosing the twelve apostles, and he pointed out that Jesus continues to pray and to intercede for us. “We often say to each other: pray for me. I need prayers. I have so many problems”. And that is good – Francis pointed out – “because we are brothers and we must pray for each other”. And the Pope says he prays to Jesus to pray for him and intercede for him. We must think about this – concluded the Pope – and we must thank the Lord. We must thank him for giving us a brother who prays for us and intercedes for us. And speaking to Jesus we must say: “Lord, you have saved me. And now pray for me”.

Universal Salvation and Denial of Hell

Homily, June 6, 1985: “The Eucharist is the sacrament of the covenant of the Body and Blood of Christ, of the covenant which is eternal. This is the covenant which embraces all. This Blood reaches all and saves all.”

Redemptoris Missio,, Dec. 7, 1990: “The Redemption event brings salvation to all, ‘for each one is included in the mystery of the Redemption and with each one Christ has united himself forever through this mystery.’”

Homily, April 27, 1980: “… Jesus makes us, in himself, once more sons of his Eternal Father. He obtains, once and for all, the salvation of man: of each man and of all…”

“We are dealing with each man, for each one is included in the mystery of the Redemption and with each one Christ has united Himself forever through this mystery.” (He is saying all will be saved)

Speech, July 28, 1999: “Eternal damnation remains a real possibility, but we are not granted, without special divine revelation, the knowledge of whether or which human beings are effectively involved in it. The thought of Hell – and even less the improper use of biblical images – must not create anxiety or despair, but is a necessary and healthy reminder of freedom within the proclamation that the risen Jesus has conquered Satan, giving us the Spirit of God who makes us cry, Abba, Father!” In a brief audience in Polish to fellow countrymen, John Paul II recalled the teaching of Hans Urs von Balthasar that, “There is a Hell, but it could be empty.”

In a March 15, 2015 interview, Eugenio Scalfari, the famed atheist reporter, quotes Francis as follows: “What happens to that lost soul? Will it be punished? And how? The response of Francis is distinct and clear: there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is finished.”

The Fourth Lateran Council in 1215 declared that, at the end of time, “all will receive according to their deeds, good or evil, the former to their everlasting glory with Christ, the latter to perpetual punishment with the devil.”

In his constitution of 1336, Benedictus Deus, Pope Benedict XII solemnly defined that “the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down immediately after death into hell and suffer the pain of hell.”

‘Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!’ – Matthew 7:13-14

“Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, which was prepared for the devil and his angels.” Matt 25:41

St. Augustine (d. 430) ‘It is certain that few are saved.’

 

St. Thomas Aquinas: ‘Since their eternal happiness, consisting in the vision of God, exceeds the common state of nature, and especially in so far as this is deprived of grace through the corruption of original sin, those who are saved are in the minority.’

St. Anthony Mary Claret (d. 1870) ‘A multitude of souls fall into the depths of Hell, and it is of the faith that all who die in mortal sin are condemned for ever and ever.

 

BENEDICT DENIES THE DOGMA OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY

“Paul teaches not the resurrection of physical bodies but of persons…” – Joseph Ratzinger, Introduction to Christianity, (republished in 1990 with Ratzinger’s approval), p. 277

The Resurrection of the body is a dogma de fide of the Catholic Faith.

 

NO TRUTH

” Jesus saith to him: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.”

“God is not only true, but Truth itself.” Pope Leo XIII

“The Church alone, being the Bride of Christ and having all things in common with her Divine Spouse, is the depository of the truth.”- Pope St. Pius X

BUT FRANCIS SAYS: “Secondly, you ask me whether it is erroneous or a sin to follow the line of thought which holds that there is no absolute, and therefore no absolute truth, but only a series of relative and subjective truths. To begin with, I would not speak about “absolute” truths, even for believers, in the sense that absolute is that which is disconnected and bereft of all relationship. Truth, according to the Christian faith, is the love of God for us in Jesus Christ. Therefore, truth is a relationship. As such each one of us receives the truth and expresses it from within, that is to say, according to one’s own circumstances, culture and situation in life, etc. This does not mean that truth is variable and subjective, quite the contrary. But it does signify that it comes to us always and only as a way and a life….truth, being completely one with love, demands humility and an openness to be sought, received and expressed. Therefore, we must have a correct understanding of the terms and, perhaps, in order to overcome being bogged down by conflicting absolute positions, we need to redefine the issues in depth.”

“Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them.” – Pope St. Felix III

"DO NOT PROSELYTIZE"......

“In the name of this charity, we reject all forms of proselytism, in the sense of acts by which persons seek to disturb each other's communities by recruiting new members from each other through methods, or because of attitudes of mind, which are opposed to the exigencies of Christian love or to what should characterize the relationships between Churches. Let it cease, where it may exist.” - Common Declaration of Paul VI and “Pope” Shenouda III of Alexandria,

In a joint declaration with Eastern Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios I on December 7, 1987, John Paul II said the following: “In this spirit, we reject every form of proselytism . . .].”

"Pope Francis cautioned against the idea of unity as ‘going back in time’ to incorporate one church into another. No one should deny their own faith history, he said, and no-one should tolerate the practice of proselytism which he called ‘a poison for the ecumenical journey’. True ecumenism, the Pope concluded, is when we focus not on our own reasons and regulations, but rather on the Word of God which requires us to listen, to receive and to witness to the world." (Vatican Radio)

"We can inspire others through witness so that one grows together in communicating. But the worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes: “I am talking with you in order to persuade you.” No. Each person dialogues, starting with his and her own identity. The church grows by attraction, not proselytizing. -Francis in his Top Ten Secrets to Happiness

The Church considers herself the disciple and missionary of this Love: missionary only insofar as she is a disciple, capable of being attracted constantly and with renewed wonder by the God who has loved us and who loves us first (cf. 1 Jn 4:10). The Church does not engage in proselytism. Instead, she grows by “attraction”: just as Christ “draws all to himself” by the power of his love, culminating in the sacrifice of the Cross, so the Church fulfils her mission to the extent that, in union with Christ, she accomplishes every one of her works in spiritual and practical imitation of the love of her Lord -Francis

NO TRUE RELIGION

John XXIII, Pacem in terris #14, April 11, 1963: “Also among man’s rights is that of being able to worship God in accordance with the right dictates of his own conscience, and to profess his religion both in private and in public.”

 

Speech to Representatives of non-Catholic churches in Geneva, June, 1969: “The spirit that animates us… This spirit lays down, as the first basis of every fruitful contact between different confessions, that each profess his faith loyally.”

General Audience, Nov. 8, 1972: “Ecumenism began in this way; as respect for non-Christian religions…”

Message, Nov. 24, 1969: “…overcome divisions, by developing a mutual respect between the different religious confessions.”

 

“Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God.” - Pope Leo XIII

 

“Is it permitted for Catholics to be present at, or to take part in, conventions, gatherings, meetings, or societies of non-Catholics which aim to associate together under a single agreement everyone who, in any way, lays claim to the name of Christian? In the negative! … It is clear, therefore, why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics. There is one way in which the unity of Christians may be fostered, and that is by furthering the return to the one true Church of Christ for those who are separated from Her.” – Pope St. Pius X

 

Pope Pius XI,Mortalium Animos Jan. 6, 1928:

“For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians, even those who have unhappily fallen away from Christ or who with

obstinacy and pertinacity deny His divine nature and mission. Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion.” “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics…”

“Everyone knows that John himself, the Apostle of love, who seems to reveal in his Gospel the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress on the memories of his followers the new commandment ‘Love one another,’ altogether forbade any intercourse with those who professed a mutilated and corrupt form of Christ’s teaching: ‘If any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you.’ (II John 10).

“The union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it” – Pope Pius XI

-Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, Jan. 6, 1928 “The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship… if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.”

 

Pope Pius XII: “By divine mandate the interpreter and guardian of the Scriptures, and the depository of Sacred Tradition living within her, the Church alone is the entrance to salvation: She alone, by herself, and under the protection and guidance of the Holy Spirit, is the source of truth.”

 

On June 24, 1993, the Vatican signed the Balamand Statement with the “Orthodox,” 1993: “The situation thus created resulted in fact in tensions and oppositions. Progressively, in the decades which followed these unions, missionary activity tended to include among its priorities the effort to convert other Christians, individually or in groups, so as “to bring them back” to one’s own Church. In order to legitimize this tendency, a source of proselytism, the Catholic Church developed the theological vision according to which she presented herself as the only one to whom salvation was entrusted. As a reaction, the Orthodox Church, in turn, came to accept the same vision according to which only in her could salvation be found…

“…According to the words of Pope John Paul II, the ecumenical endeavor of the sister Churches of East and West, grounded in dialogue and prayer, is the search for perfect and total communion which is neither absorption nor fusion but a meeting in truth and love (cf. Slavorum Apostoli, 27). 15. While the inviolable freedom of persons and their obligation to follow the requirements of their conscience remain secure, in the search for re-establishing unity there is no question of conversion of people from one Church to the other in order to ensure their salvation….Pastoral activity in the Catholic Church, Latin as well as Oriental, no longer aims at having the faithful of one Church pass over to the other; that is to say, it no longer aims at proselytizing among the Orthodox. It aims at answering the spiritual needs of its own faithful and it has no desire for expansion at the expense of the Orthodox Church….To pave the way for future relations between the two Churches, passing beyond the out-dated ecclesiology of return to the Catholic Church connected with the problem which is the object of this document, special attention will be given to the preparation of future priests and of all those who, in any way, are involved in an apostolic activity carried on in a place where the other Church traditionally has its roots. Their education should be objectively positive with respect of the other Church.”

“First, the missionary who is attempting with God’s help to bring back Greek and eastern schismatics to unity should devote all his effort to the single objective of delivering them from doctrines at variance with the Catholic faith. For the only work entrusted to the missionary is that of recalling the Oriental to the Catholic faith…”-Pope Benedict XIV, Allatae Sunt, July 26, 1755

“It is impossible for the most true God, who is Truth itself, the best, the wisest Provider, and the Rewarder of good men, to approve all sects who profess false teachings which are often inconsistent with one another and contradictory, and to confer eternal rewards on their members… by divine faith we hold one Lord, one faith, one baptism… This is why we profess that there is no salvation outside the Church.” – Pope Leo XII, Ubi Primum, May 5, 1824

“We address all of you who are still removed from the true Church and the road to salvation. In this universal rejoicing, one thing is lacking: that… you might sincerely agree with the mother Church, outside of whose teachings there is no salvation.”Pope Leo XII, Encyclical, May 24, 1824:

“The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship… if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.” -Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, Jan. 6, 1928

“Be not deceived, my brother; if anyone follows a schismatic, he will not attain the inheritance of the kingdom of God.” Pope Gregory XVI, May 27, 1832

Pope Pius XII spoke of Catholics being tortured and killed because they would not become Eastern “Orthodox” schismatics:

“Those of the faithful who would not depart from the true faith, and dutifully and undauntedly resisted the union with the dissident Church imposed in 1875, were shamefully punished with fines and flogging and exile.”

….“The Ruthenian community received… a noble company of confessors and martyrs. To preserve their faith unimpaired and to maintain their zealous loyalty to the Roman pontiffs, these did not hesitate to endure every kind of labor and hardship, or even to go gladly to their death… Josaphat Kuntzevitch… He was the outstanding martyr for Catholic faith and unity at that period, but not the only one; not a few of the clergy and the laity received the same palm of victory after him; some were slain with the sword, some atrociously flogged to death, some drowned in the Dneiper, so passing from their triumph over death to Heaven.”

…“Besides all of this a new and no less bitter persecution of Catholicism was begun a few years before the partition of Poland. At the time when the troops of the Russia emperor had invaded Poland many churches of the Ruthenian rite were taken away from Catholics by force of arms; the priests who refused to abjure their faith were put in chains, insulted, scourged and cast into prison, where they suffered cruelly from hunger, thirst and cold.”– Pope Pius XII, Orientales Omnes Ecclesias, Dec. 23, 1945

“At the same time I wish to assure once more the pastors and our brothers and sisters of the Orthodox Churches that the new evangelization is in no way to be confused with proselytism…” John Paul II, Ecclesia in Europa, Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, June 28, 2003

 

The new text describes the relationship between the Church and non-Catholic Christians without speaking of ‘membership.’ By shedding this terminological armor, the text acquired a much wider scopeThe Catholic has to recognize that his own Church is not yet prepared to accept the phenomenon of multiplicity in unity; he must orient himself toward this reality… Meantime the Catholic Church has no right to absorb other Churches.”– Joseph Ratzinger, Theological Highlights of Vatican II, New York: Paulist Press, 1966, pp. 61, 68

“It means that the Catholic does not insist on the dissolution of the Protestant confessions and the demolishing of their churches but hopes, rather, that they will be strengthened in their confessions and in their ecclesial reality.” -Ratzinger, Principles of Catholic Theology (1982), p. 202 (Ecclesial reality?…..)

Benedict XVI stated that the teaching of Vatican II was a “countersyllabus” which was “an attempt at an official reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789 and an effort to correct what he called “the one-sidedness of the position adopted by the Church under Pius IX and Pius X in response to the situation created by the new phase of history inaugurated by the French Revolution…” (Joseph Ratzinger, Principles of Catholic Theology, Ignatius Press, 1987 pp. 381-382.)

He also declared that at Vatican II, “the attitude of critical reserve toward the forces that have left their imprint on the modern world is to be replaced by a coming to terms with their movement.”

FRANCIS CELEBRATED THE APOSTASY OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION

Francis is to took part in a joint Catholic-Lutheran service in Sweden in October marking the start of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s anti-Catholic Reformation.

Luther, an apostate priest, started the Protestant Reformation in 1517. Luther’s doctrines were was condemned as heretical and he was excommunicated. The Protestant Reformation led to a violent, often political schism throughout Europe, prompting among other things the 30 Years’ War. The service will took place in the southern Swedish city of Lund on Oct. 31, the Vatican said. Lund is where the Lutheran World Federation was founded in 1947. A “common prayer” that both religions was use during the 2017 commemorations, greatly praises Luther.

• Francis:I think that the intentions of Martin Luther were not mistaken. He was a reformer. Perhaps some methods were not correct. But in that time, if we read the story of the Pastor, a German Lutheran who then converted when he saw reality – he became Catholic – in that time, the Church was not exactly a model to imitate. There was corruption in the Church, there was worldliness, attachment to money, to power…and this he protested. Then he was intelligent and took some steps forward justifying, and because he did this. And today Lutherans and Catholics, Protestants, all of us agree on the doctrine of justification. On this point, which is very important, he did not err. He made a medicine for the Church, but then this medicine consolidated into a state of things, into a state of a discipline, into a way of believing, into a way of doing, into a liturgical way and he wasn’t alone; there was Zwingli, there was Calvin, each one of them different, and behind them were who? Principals! We must put ourselves in the story of that time. It’s a story that’s not easy to understand, not easy. Then things went forward, and today the dialogue is very good. That document of justification I think is one of the richest ecumenical documents in the world, one in most agreement. But there are divisions, and these also depend on the Churches. In Buenos Aires there were two Lutheran churches, and one thought in one way and the other…even in the same Lutheran church there was no unity; but they respected each other, they loved each other, and the difference is perhaps what hurt all of us so badly and today we seek to take up the path of encountering each other after 500 years. I think that we have to pray together, pray. Prayer is important for this. Second, to work together for the poor, for the persecuted, for many people, for refugees, for the many who suffer; to work together and pray together and the theologians who study together try…but this is a long path, very long. One time jokingly I said: I know when full unity will happen. – “when?” – “the day after the Son of Man comes,” because we don’t know…the Holy Spirit will give the grace, but in the meantime, praying, loving each other and working together. Above all for the poor, for the people who suffer and for peace and many things…against the exploitation of people and many things in which they are jointly working together.”

LUTHER’S “JUSTIFICATION” (etc.) MARTIN LUTHER taught justification by faith alone; that we are saved solely by our faith in the power of Jesus Christ, apart from our actions. Accordingly, he told his followers to “Sin and sin boldly”. This method of thinking has been adopted by millions of Protestants since his time. He also denied Tradition; the divine authority of the Papacy; that councils were infallible; that original justice was supernatural gift; that human nature remained essentially the same in its powers after the fall of Adam; that man, after the fall, can produce any good works; held that man sins in whatever he does; that the sins of the just are covered by faith and not done away with; maintained that all works of sinners are sins; denied free-will; all the Sacraments except Baptism and the Eucharist; transubstantiation; the Sacrifice of the Mass; purgatory and the utility of praying to the Saints; he maintained that vows are made to the devil; that concupiscence in invincible; that the sensual instincts are irrepressible; and held that the gratification of sexual propensities is as natural and inexorable as the performance of any of the physiological necessities of our being.

Lutheranism in general and all the Protestant sects that developed from it were condemned at the Council of Trent (1545-1563)

John Paul II approved the Vatican-Lutheran Agreement on Justification. On Oct. 31, 1999. This agreement teaches: that Justification comes by “faith alone”; that the Canons of the Council of Trent no longer apply to the Lutherans; that none of the Lutheran teaching in the Joint Declaration, including the heresy of Justification by faith alone and numerous other Lutheran heresies, is condemned by the Council of Trent .

Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, May 8, 1844: “But later even more care was required when the Lutherans and Calvinists dared to oppose the changeless doctrine of the faith with an almost incredible variety of errors. They left no means untried to deceive the faithful with perverse explanations of the sacred books…”

APOLOGIES TO THE PENTECOSTALS….

Italy (RNS) Francis sought forgiveness for decades of “persecution” of Italian Pentecostals when he met with around 300 evangelicals from the U.S., Argentina and Italy in the southern town of Caserta. Pope Francis said he knew people would be shocked that he would make such a trip outside of Rome to visit a group of Pentecostals, “but I went to visit my friends.” During the visit, Francis apologized for the persecution suffered by Pentecostals under Italy’s fascist regime in the 1920s and 1930s and urged Christians to celebrate their diversity and unity. “Catholics were among those who persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy,”

“I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil.”

AND THE NON-CHRISTIANS......

Catechesis, August 24, 2005: “This year is also the 40th anniversary of the conciliar Declaration Nostra Aetate, which has ushered in a new season of dialogue and spiritual solidarity between Jews and Christians, as well as esteem for the other great religious traditions. Islam occupies a special place among them.”

Address, May 22, 2002: “Praise to you, followers of Islam… Praise to you, Jewish

people… Praise especially to you, Orthodox Church…”

Benedict XVI, Zenit News story, Sept. 5, 2000: “[W]e are in agreement that a Jew, and this is true for believers of other religions, does not need to know or acknowledge Christ as the Son of God in order to be saved…”

Benedict XVI, God and the World, 2000, pages 150-151: “…their [the Jews] No to Christ brings the Israelites into conflict with the subsequent acts of God, but at the same time we know that they are assured of the faithfulness of God. They are not excluded from salvation…”

Benedict XVI’s Telegram to Chief Rabbi of Rome, Riccardo Di Segni for the Jewish feast Rosh Ha-Shanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot: “On the festive occasions Rosh Ha-Shanah 5773, Yom Kippur and Sukkot I address heartfelt wishes for peace and good will to you and to the entire Jewish community of Rome, asking the Almighty for abundant blessings for the New Year and hoping that Jews and Christians, as they grow in mutual respect and friendship, many bear witness in the world to the values that come from adoration of the One God.” BENEDICTUS PP. XVI”

“HE WHO BELIEVES AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED, HE WHO BELIEVES NOT, SHALL BE CONDEMNED.”

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives…”

Paul VI, Speech, Sept. 9, 1972: “We would also like you to know that the Church recognizes the riches of the Islamic faith – a faith that binds us to the one God.”

On May 14, 1999, John Paul II bowed to and kissed the Koran.

John Paul II, Message to “Grand Sheikh Mohammed,” Feb. 24, 2000: Islam is a religion. Christianity is a religion. Islam has become a culture. Christianity has become

also a culture… I thank your university, the biggest center of Islamic culture. I thank those who are developing Islamic culture…”

March 21, 2000:May Saint John the Baptist protect Islam and all the people of Jordan….”

On May 6, 2001, John Paul II traveled to and attended the “Great Umayyad Mosque” of Damascus. While in the mosque, John Paul II took off his shoes as a sign of reverence.While in the mosque, John Paul II was also seated in a chair identical to that of the Grand Mufti. Here is the statement that John Paul II made to the Muslims that day:

“It is in mosques and churches that the Muslim and Christian communities shape their religious identity… What sense of identity is instilled in young Christians and young Muslims in our churches and mosques? It is my ardent hope that Muslim and Christian religious leaders and teachers will present our two great communities in respectful dialogue, never more as communities in conflict.”

“…if anyone were to…worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would be deemed an apostate.” – St. Thomas Aquinas

Benedict XVI’s September 14, 2012 Address in the Basilica of Harissa:

“I am also gratified by the presence of the Orthodox, Muslim and Druze delegations, as well as those from the world of culture and from civil society. The happy coexistence of Islam and Christianity, two religions that have helped to shape great cultures, is what makes for the originality of social, political and religious life in Lebanon. One can only rejoice in this circumstance, which must absolutely be encouraged. I entrust this wish to the religious leaders of your country.”

Benedict XVI’s September 16, 2012 Address at Farewell Ceremony at Beirut’s Rafiq Hariri International Airport in Lebanon: “I cordially thank our venerable sister Churches and the Protestant communities. I thank in particular representatives of the Muslim communities. Through my stay here, I have noticed how much your presence has contributed to the success of my journey. In these troubled times, the Arab world and indeed the entire world will have seen Christians and Muslims united in celebrating peace. It is a tradition in the Middle East to receive a guest with consideration and respect as you have done. I thank you all… I give thanks to God for granting these occasions, for these meaningful encounters which I was able to have, and for the prayer offered by all and for all in Lebanon and the Middle East, whatever their origins or religious beliefs… I pray to God for Lebanon, that she may live in peace and courageously resist all that could destroy or undermine that peace. I hope that Lebanon will continue to permit the plurality of religious traditions and not listen to the voices of those who wish to prevent it. I hope that Lebanon will fortify the communion among all her inhabitants, whatever their community or religion, that she will resolutely reject all that could lead to disunity, and with determination choose brotherhood. These are blossoms pleasing to God, virtues that are possible and that merit consolidation by becoming more deeply rooted.”

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. II, Q. 12, A. 1, Obj. 2: “… if anyone were to…

worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would be deemed an apostate.”

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. I-II, Q. 103., A. 4: “All ceremonies are professions of faith, in which the interior worship of God consists. Now man can make profession of his inward faith, by deeds as well as by words: and in either profession, if he make a false declaration, he sins mortally.”

“I should like now to greet the young Muslims who are with us this evening. I thank you for your presence, which is so important. Together with the young Christians, you are the future of this fine country and of the Middle East in general. Seek to build it up together!

And when you are older, continue to live in unity and harmony with Christians. For the beauty of Lebanon is found in this fine symbiosis. It is vital that the Middle East in general, looking at you, should understand that Muslims and Christians, Islam and Christianity, can live side by side without hatred, with respect for the beliefs of each person, so as to build together a free and humane society… It is time for Muslims and Christians to come together…” -Benedict

Address to Representatives of Islam, August 20, 2005: “The believer – and all of us, as

Christians and Muslims, are believers – … You guide Muslim believers and train them in the Islamic faith… You, therefore, have a great responsibility for the formation of the younger generation.”

Address, Dec. 22, 2006: “My visit to Turkey afforded me the opportunity to show also publicly my respect for the Islamic Religion, a respect, moreover, which the Second Vatican Council pointed out to us as an attitude that is only right.”

During a visit to Turkey in February 2014, Francis took off his shoes as he entered the Blue Mosque, before bowing his head in prayer for several minutes, facing Mecca and standing next to Istanbul’s Grand Mufti Rahmi Yaran, in what a Vatican spokesman described as a joint “moment of silent adoration” of God.

This this happened in Turkey’s capital Istanbul; a city that was violently conquered by the Muslims. The nearby church of Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom), was violently seized in 1453 by the Ottoman empire, whose soldiers stripped it of all its holy icons and its Crosses, and the sultan, Mehmet II, had an imam make the very same prayer to which Pope Francis prayed,

AND THE THE PAGANS.....

Address to Buddhist Patriarch of Laos, June 8, 1973: “… Buddhism… the Catholic Church considers its spiritual riches with esteem and respect and wishes to collaborate with you, as religious men, to bring about real peace and the salvation of man.”

 

Address to Dalai Lama, Sept. 30, 1973: “We are happy to welcome Your Holiness today… You come to us from Asia, the cradle of ancient religions and human traditions which are rightly held in deep veneration.”

General Audience to Japanese Buddhists, Sept. 5, 1973: “It is a great pleasure for us to welcome the members of the Japanese Buddhists Europe Tour, honored followers of the Soto-shu sect of Buddhism… At the Second Vatican Council the Catholic Church exhorted her sons and daughters to study and evaluate the religious traditions of mankind and to ‘learn by sincere and patient dialogue what treasures a bountiful God has distributed among the nations of the earth’(Ad Gentes, 11)… Buddhism is one of the riches of Asia…”

Address to Synod of Bishops, Sept. 2, 1974: “Likewise we cannot omit a reference to the non-Christian religions these, in fact, must no longer be regarded as rivals, or obstacles to Evangelization…

General Audience, Jan. 11, 1995: “I gladly take this occasion to assure those who follow the Buddhist religion of my deep respect and sincere esteem.”

In March of 1986, John Paul II went to New Delhi, India, the place where the Hindu Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. John Paul II took off his shoes before Gandhi’s monument and stated: “Today as a pilgrim of peace, I have come here to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi, hero of humanity.” John Paul II also threw flowers on Gandhi’s tomb to honor and commemorate this pagan.

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. I-II, Q. 103, A. 4: “All ceremonies are professions of faith, in which the interior worship of God consists. Now man can make profession of his inward faith, by deeds as well as by words: and in either profession, if he make a false declaration, he sins mortally.”

Buddha, whom John Paul II called “Lord”.

May 6, 1984: “…the world looks to Korea with particular interest. For the Korean people throughout history have sought, in the great ethical and religious visions of Buddhism and Confucianism, the path to renewal of self… May I address a particular greeting to the members of the Buddhist tradition as they prepare to celebrate the festivity of the Coming of the Lord Buddha? May your rejoicing be complete and your joy fulfilled.”

Address at Airport in Korea, May 3, 1984: “Yours is a proud and sturdy people… bearing splendid fruits in art, religion, and human living. Your ancestors embraced such overwhelming spiritual worlds as Confucianism and Buddhism, yet made them truly their own, enhanced them, lived them and eventransmitted them to others. Wonhyo and Sosan… eloquently express this feat.” …

Benedict XVI’s August 4, 2012 Message to the Supreme “Priest” of the Tendai Buddhist Denomination: “The Venerable KOJUN HANDA, 256th Tendai Zasu Supreme Priest of the Tendai Buddhist Denomination: “I am pleased to greet you and the religious leaders gathered for the 25th anniversary of the Religious Summit on Mount Hiei, in the spirit of the 1986 historic meeting in Assisi promoted by my predecessor Blessed John Paul II. The commitment to the cause of peace by religious leaders is of the greatest importance and I am happy to learn that, thanks to your efforts, the Summit on Mount Hiei has become a major annual event that contributes effectively to dialogue between people of different beliefs… people of different beliefs can cooperate with one another for the good of the human person. With these sentiments, and as a pledge of goodwill and friendship, upon all gathered I invoke an abundance of divine blessings. Benedict PP. XVI”

Pope Pius XII, Fulgens Radiatur, March 21, 1947: “… he [St. Benedict] went south and arrived at a fort ‘called Cassino situated on the side of a high mountain; on this stood an old temple where Apollo was worshipped by the foolish country people, according to the custom of the ancient heathens. Around it likewise grew groves, in which even till that time the mad multitude of infidels used to offer their idolatrous sacrifices. The man of God coming to that place broke the idol, overthrew the altar, burned the groves, and of the temple of Apollo made a chapel of St. Martin. Where the profane altar had stood he built a chapel of St. John; and by continual preaching he converted many of the people thereabout.’”

 

O God, the heathens are come into thy inheritance, they have defiled thy holy temple: they have made Jerusalem as a place to keep fruit. - Psalm 78:1

Benedict XVI, God and the World, 2000, p. 373: “There were in fact Christian hotheads and fanatics who destroyed temples, who were unable to see paganism as anything more than idolatry that had to be radically eliminated.”

St. Francis Xavier would be one on the “hotheads” he’s referring to:

St. Francis Xavier: [regarding the heathen children he had converted to the Catholic faith,+1543): “These children… show an ardent love for the Divine law, and an extraordinary zeal for our holy religion and imparting it to others. Their hatred for idolatry is marvelous. They get into feuds with the heathens about it… The children run at the idols, upset them,

dash them down, break them to pieces, spit on them, trample on them, kick them about, and in short heap on them every possible outrage.”

At the World Day Prayer for Peace, John Paul II gathered in “prayer” with Jews, heretics, pagans and humanists; in the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy, in 1986 and 2002. Among the various “religious” leaders at Assisi there were rabbis, Islamic muftis, Buddhist monks, Shintoists, assorted Protestant ministers, Animists, Jainists and others. During the meeting, a member of each false religion came forward and offered a “prayer” for peace, for instance, the Hindu prayer: “Peace be on all gods.” During the meeting in 1986, the Dalai Lama placed a Buddhist statue Buddha on the tabernacle in the church of St. Francis. During the Assisi II prayer meeting, the representative of every false religion involved was allowed to come to the pulpit and give a sermon on world peace.

A voodoo high priest gave the voodoo prescription for world peace. The Hindu woman told the crowd that everyone is God, ……and so on.

 

 

Benedict, just like John Paul II, held a World Day Prayer for Peace at the Basilica in Assisi in 2011 which included witch doctors and atheists. The purpose was “to solemnly renew the commitment of believers of every religion to live their own religious faith as a service to the cause of peace,”

"BE NOT DECEIVED, GOD IS NOT MOCKED." Gal. 6:7

UNITED NATIONS OF RELIGION

“…the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. […] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.”- Pope St. Pius X

 

 

Published on Tuesday, 09 September 2014: “Last Thursday, Pope Francis and former Israeli President Shimon Peres met for an extended 45 minute private conversation. The focus of this discussion was a proposal by Peres to establish a “United Nations of Religions”. It was the third meeting between the two men in a little more than four months. As you will see below, Francis showed “his interest, attention, and encouragement” as Peres explained his proposal. It is very unusual for a Pope to meet with any world leader three times in just over four months. But it is this latest meeting between Pope Francis and Shimon Peres that was the most noteworthy by far. The following is how Fox News reported on it… Retired Israeli President Shimon Peres has proposed a new global peace initiative to Pope Francis: A “United Nations of Religions,” given that most wars today have religious, not nationalistic, undercurrents. The Vatican said Peres pitched the initiative during a 45-minute audience Thursday in the Apostolic Palace. The two men last met when Francis invited the then-Israeli president and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to pray for peace together in the Vatican gardens on June 8. So exactly why does Peres want a “United Nations of Religions”? Well, according to the Jerusalem Post it is because he believes that such a body would have the best chance of preventing war and violence in the world…

NO SIN AND NO MORALITY

Pope Pius IX Encyclical QUANTA CURA against freedom of conscience (Full text here)

“For you well know, venerable brethren, that at this time men are found not a few who, applying to civil society the impious and absurd principle of “naturalism,” as they call it, dare to teach that “the best constitution of public society and (also) civil progress altogether require that human society be conducted and governed without regard being had to religion any more than if it did not exist; or, at least, without any distinction being made between the true religion and false ones.” And, against the doctrine of Scripture, of the Church, and of the Holy Fathers, they do not hesitate to assert that “that is the best condition of civil society, in which no duty is recognized, as attached to the civil power, of restraining by enacted penalties, offenders against the Catholic religion, except so far as public peace may require.” From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an “insanity,”2 viz., that “liberty of conscience and worship is each man’s personal right, which ought to be legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society; and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil, whereby they may be able openly and publicly to manifest and declare any of their ideas whatever, either by word of mouth, by the press, or in any other way.” But, while they rashly affirm this, they do not think and consider that they are preaching “liberty of perdition;”3 and that “if human arguments are always allowed free room for discussion, there will never be wanting men who will dare to resist truth, and to trust in the flowing speech of human wisdom; whereas we know, from the very teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, how carefully Christian faith and wisdom should avoid this most injurious babbling.”

" ... True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us. When we go to confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us. No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say: 'This is your sin, and I will sin again'. And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us. " Francis, Vatican Radio, 6-15-'13

ATHEISM

“…..I believe that in the first two questions, what interests you is to understand the attitude of the Church towards those who do not share faith in Jesus. Above all, you ask if the God of Christians forgives those who do not believe and who do not seek faith. Given the premise, and this is fundamental, that the mercy of God is limitless for those who turn to him with a sincere and contrite heart, the issue for the unbeliever lies in obeying his or her conscience.There is sin, even for those who have no faith, when conscience is not followed. Listening to and obeying conscience means deciding in the face of what is understood to be good or evil. It is on the basis of this choice that the goodness or evil of our actions is determined.” - Francis

In a homily, Francis told the story of a Catholic who asked a priest if even atheists could be redeemed by Jesus. In a hypothetical conversation in which someone told a priest: “But I don’t believe. I’m an atheist.” “Even them, everyone,” the Pope explained on Vatican Radio. “We all have the duty to do good. … Just do good, and we’ll find a meeting point.”

MASS MURDER

In an interview early in February with the Italian daily, Corriere della Sera, Francis called former Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino one of the nation’s “forgotten greats.” Bonino for decades has been known as Italy’s most outspoken abortion-rights activist. Bonino, a leading member of the Radical Party and former European commissioner, is well known for having an abortion at the age of 27 and then working with the Information Centre on Sterilization and Abortion. Emma Bonino entered Italian politics as a radical feminist and leftist extremist in the ‘70s after she had already made her name synonymous with illegal abortion. She boasted in the press of having invented a device out of a jam jar and a bicycle pump, and has since continued to claim that using that device she had personally killed 10,000 “unwanted” children. Starting in 1979, as a protégée of billionaire Jewish socialist, George Soros, she brought her campaign to the international realm as a Member of the European Parliament, and later, out into the wider world as Italy’s Foreign Minister and president and founder of the Transnational Radical Party. In 1973, abortion was a crime, punishable with two to five years imprisonment. Bonino founded the “CISA,” the Information Centre on Sterilization and Abortion in order to change that. Through this illegal organization, Bonino recorded herself having committed 10,141 abortions. The group claimed in 1974 to have conducted about 4000 a year. As well, for many years she has promoted euthanasia, same-sex “marriage,” and more.

Francis called Bonino, “among the great ones of today’s Italy.” He mentioned her work as foreign minister in Africa: “She offered the best service to Italy to learn about Africa.” Francis acknowledged that his praise, in which he compared her to historical figures such as Konrad Adenauer, who was the first post-world War II chancellor of Germany, and the famed French statesman Robert Schuman, could be considered controversial. “They say: ‘This is a person who thinks very differently from us.’ True, but never mind. We have to look at people, at what they do,” Francis said….

SUICIDE

Francis, On Heaven and Earth, pp. 92-93: “There was a time when they did not perform

funerals for those that committed suicide because they had not continued on towards the goal; they ended the path when they wanted to. But I still respect the one who commits suicide; he is a person who could not overcome the contradictions in his life. I do not reject him.”

SODOMY and ADULTERY

Francis allowing one of his sodomite priests to caress his face.

On his July 28, 2013 on a flight from Rio to Rome, Francis spoke with reporters for 80 minutes. When asked about an apparent “gay lobby” of clergy at the Vatican, the Pope said, “In these situations, it’s important to distinguish between a gay person and a gay lobby, because having a lobby is never good. If a gay person is a person of good will who seeks God, who am I to judge? The Catechism of the Church explains this very beautifully. It outlines that gays should not be marginalized.” Pope Francis then said, “The problem is not having this orientation. No, we must be brothers and sisters. The problem is lobbying for this orientation, or lobbies of greed, political lobbies, Masonic lobbies, so many lobbies. This is the most serious problem for me.”…….Notice, Francis has no problem with his clergy being freemasons…

Benedict and the imam…..

“Religion has the right to express its opinion in the service of the people, but God in creation has set us free: it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person.” Francis said that someone once asked him if he “approved” of homosexuality. “I replied with another question,” he said. “`Tell me, when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ We must always consider the person. Here we enter into the mystery of the human being.”

Francis wants the Catholic Church to study same-sex marriages, Cardinal Timothy Dolan said on NBC’s “Meet The Press”. According to Dolan, Francis wants church leaders to “look into it and see the reasons that have driven them.” Dolan was also asked about Michael Sam, the football player, who recently came out as gay. “Good for him,” Dolan said. “I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless ya. I don’t think, look, the same bible that tells us that teaches us well about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, ‘Bravo.'”

In his book, The Changing Face of the Catholic Priesthood, Reverend Donald Cozzens (2000), a respected rector of the Cleveland seminary, cites studies from 1989 which estimate that 55.1 per cent of seminarians are gay.

"The Catholic church and other Christian communities must apologize to gay people and to many groups they have let down or offended throughout history, Pope Francis has said.

In a press conference Sunday on the flight back to Rome after his weekend trip to Armenia, the pontiff said bluntly: "The church must say it's sorry for not having comported itself well many times, many times."

"I believe that the church not only must say it's sorry ... to this person that is gay that it has offended," said the pope.....

.."I will repeat the same thing I said on the first trip," Francis said today, referencing the press conference he held on a return flight from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2013. "I will also repeat what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: that [gay people] should not be discriminated against, that they have to be respected, pastorally accompanied."

"The matter is a person that has that condition [and] that has good will because they search for God," said the pontiff.

"Who are we to judge them?" he asked, reframing his famous phrase from 2013 into the plural. "We must accompany well -- what the Catechism says. The Catechism is clear."

Francis also said that the culture in which he grew up in Argentina many years ago was a "closed Catholic culture," giving the example of how it was looked down upon to even enter the home of a couple who had been married civilly after one of the partners had previously divorced.

"The culture has changed -- and thank God!" the pope exclaimed. "Christians; we must say we are sorry many times; not only on this." - National Catholic Reporter, June 26. 2016

DIVORCE: (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta residence in the Vatican this morning. In remarks following the readings of the day, the Holy Father focused on the beauty of marriage and warned that the Church must accompany – not condemn – those who experience failure in married life. “When, however, this leaving one’s father and mother, and joining oneself to a woman, and going forward… when this love fails – because many times it fails – we have to feel the pain of the failure, (we must) accompany those people who have had this failure in their love. Do not condemn. Walk with them,– and don’t practice casuistry on their situation.”

The Holy Father also warned against giving in to the temptation to entertain “special pleading” in questions regarding marriage. The Pharisees, he noted, present Jesus with the problem of divorce. Their method, the Pope said, is always the same: “casuistry,” — “is this licit or not?” “It is always the small case. And this is the trap, behind casuistry, behind casuistic thought, there is always a trap: against people, against us, and against God, always,” he explained.

Pope Francis also said the Gospel episode encourages us to reflect “about this plan of love, this journey of love in Christian marriage, that God has blessed the masterpiece of His Creation,” a blessing, he said, “that has never been taken away. Not even original sin has destroyed it.” When we thinks of this, we can “see how beautiful love is, how beautiful marriage is, how beautiful the family is, how beautiful this journey is, and how much love we too [must have], how close we must be to our brothers and sisters who in life have had the misfortune of a failure in love.”

“…Another possibility could be the Orthodox model, which allows some divorcees to re-marry in church and take Communion but gives only a blessing for the second marriage and does not consider it a sacrament. Francis mentioned the Orthodox solution as a “parenthesis” on the plane during his return from a visit to Brazil and it was raised again by some cardinals in their consistory this month in which they said it could happen following “a period of penitence”.

Francis tells adulteress she should be allowed Communion:

Apr 23, 2014 – Jacqui Lisbona, who is from Francis’ homeland of Argentina, wrote to tell him that she had been refused Communion by her local priest, who objected to the fact that she was married to a previously divorced man. “[The priest] told me that every time I went home, I was going back to living in sin,” she said. In her letter, Mrs Lisbona said she was worried that if she did take Communion – perhaps in a church where she was not known to the priest – she would be “violating Church rules”. Francis called her at her home. He reportedly told her: “A divorcee who takes communion is not doing anything wrong.” In a rebuke to the local priest who refused her the Sacrament, he added: “There are some priests who are more papist than the Pope.”.......When asked whether the remarks attributed to the Pope were correct, a Vatican spokesman told The Telegraph: “We would neither confirm nor deny that – this was a private telephone call made by the Holy Father and we would not divulge the details.”

NUDITY

May 8, 1984, John Paul II had a “Mass” in Papua New Guinea; semi-naked natives of both sexes (including topless women) received “Communion.” A topless woman in paint and native garb read the Epistle. If you must see this to believe it...JPII giving "communion" to topless woman

THE TANGO

In 2010, Sergio Rubin and Francesca Ambrogetti published a book named El Jesuita (Spanish for “The Jesuit”), which is an authorized biography of then -“Cardinal” Jorge Mario Bergoglio. In this book, the authors quote Bergoglio as follows: “I love the tango a lot. It is something that comes from inside me.” Bergoglio’s love for the tango is not unknown. After his “election”, the mayor of Rome invited people to a special Tango Night “in honor of Pope Francis”.

REUTERS, Jan 17, 2014 -Thousands of people sang “Happy Birthday” and danced a mass tango on Wednesday to celebrate the birthday of the first Latin American pope. Argentinian Pope Francis was born in the birthplace of the tango on Dec. 17, 1936. On Wednesday, he heard versions of “Happy Birthday” in Spanish, Italian and other languages as he was driven through St. Peter’s Square to start his weekly general audience. Argentine priests handed him a cake and he blew out the candles before his open-top jeep moved on. The vehicle stopped again so the pope, visibly pleased, could accept a birthday drawing from an Italian boy. At the rear edge of the square, more than 2,000 people who came to Rome from all over Italy for the birthday danced in “A tango for Pope Francis” event as music blared. “We are here for the pope’s birthday. We are dancing the tango as our present to him,” said an Italian woman. Francis, who become Latin America’s first pope when he was elected in 2013, is a fan of the dance from the land of his birth.”

On behalf of Pope St. Pius X, the Vicar General of Rome Card. Basilio Pompili issued a Pastoral Letter in 1914 denouncing the tango as highly damaging to the soul. The Cardinal stated:

“The tango, which has already been condemned by illustrious Bishops and is prohibited even in Protestant countries, must be absolutely prohibited in the see of the Roman Pontiff, the centre of the Catholic religion.” He urged the clergy to courageously raise their voices “to defend the sanctity of Christian customs against the threatening danger and overwhelming immorality of the new paganism.” He also warned parents that if they do not protect their children from such corruption, they will be guilty before God of failing in their most sacred duties. (The New York Times, January 16, 1914)

Card. Aristide Cavallari, the Patriarch of Venice, also strongly condemned the tango, referring to it as moral turpitude, adding: “It is the worst that can be imagined. It is revolting and disgusting. Only persons who have lost all moral sense can bear it. It is the shame of our days. Whoever persists in it commits a sin.” The Cardinal ordered all ecclesiastics to deny absolution to those who dance the tango and do not promise to discontinue the practice. (The New York Times, January 22, 1914

HOMELESS POOR OR ALCOHOLICS?

We all know that a high percentage of homeless people are homeless because they are alcoholics and drug addicts. They were formerly know as derelicts and bums. People, especially parents, are rightfully afraid of them. Yet, we are constantly hearing about all we should be doing for them, with no explanation as to a legitimate reason why they would be in such a condition. Nor is there any talk about helping them reform themselves.

VATICAN CITY — “It is nearly 8 p.m. on a Tuesday in early March, and the Vatican is locked up for the night. A few stray tourists pose for pictures in front of the glistening basilica of St. Peter, and cassock-wearing clergy skim the perimeter of the square on their way home to dinner. In the shadows of the famous colonnade and extending to the foot of the grand boulevard known as the Via Conciliazione, dozens of men and a few women settle in for the night in Vatican-issued sleeping bags.They are the welcomed guests of Pope Francis, though not everyone in the neighborhood appreciates their presence. Joey, a Romanian who used to bed down in Rome’s squalid Termini train station, moved to St. Peter’s in late February. “We are all moving here,” he told The Daily Beast. “Everyone else spits on the homeless. But not here.” By some estimates, the number of homeless people now camping out near St. Peter’s Square has doubled in the last six months, since the pope’s vow to return dignity to those suffering the humiliation of extreme poverty. Rome city officials don’t keep solid numbers on homeless people, though local charities put the number at about 3,275. A nighttime police officer who guards the perimeter of St. Peter’s Square told The Daily Beast that the numbers of homeless around Vatican City are much higher than he had ever seen in his 10 years on the job, estimating them at more than 1,000 in the immediate area. “We are told to leave them in peace,” he said. “They don’t cause any trouble, and in the morning they spread out. They are really only here in high numbers at night.” Francis began his pontificate with a vow to turn the Catholic Church into a church for the poor. One of his first gestures after he was elected in 2013 was to invite four homeless men to celebrate his 77th birthday at the hotel where he lives inside the Vatican’s hallowed walls. This year he again invited a handful of homeless to join him for his birthday lunch. Then he ordered his alms giver to hand out hundreds of sleeping bags to those sleeping on the street. Under Francis, the Vatican also has installed showers near the public bathrooms under the colonnade, and every Monday, local volunteer barbers offer free haircuts once the homeless men and women have taken showers. There are laundry services and a clothes bank where those in need can get clean clothes.The only day the showers aren’t available is Wednesday, when the pope’s general audience attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims. On those days, many homeless people are tasked with handing out prayer books….

….The generosity of the pope may be well received by those in need, but it is not without complications. Store owners along the Via Conciliazione have complained that the number of homeless people and beggars detracts from business and that every morning they have to forcibly remove those in the papal sleeping bags from their storefront steps. A woman at a religious trinket shop who asked that she not be named lest she upset the pope said his kindness was now a magnet attracting the city’s poorest people. “I don’t want to group homeless people with pickpockets and thieves, but we have also seen an increase in petty crime here since the homeless moved in,” she said. “There has to be a balance in finding the peace between those of us who pay a lot of rent to run our businesses here and those who cash in for free.”

There is also a logistical issue with the increase in street people. The city’s charities and soup kitchens do a fine job feeding the poor, but there are very few public toilets for the homeless to use—and a scant few that are open overnight—which means that full corridors of side streets along the flanks of Vatican City are littered with human feces and drenched in urine. Street sweepers have acknowledged that they now spray down full sections of the areas around St. Peter’s Square every morning before the tourists arrive.

“Drunkenness is a great sin. It is a disgrace in the eyes of men. The conversion of the habitual drunkard is difficult. Many people are prone to make light of this vice and excuse the same. We will attempt to show the enormity of this vice and the folly to make excuses for it. It is beyond the power of mortal man to describe the full extent of the havoc wrought by this vice. Probably because it is so widespread, there is too much tolerance for this evil. We cannot be indifferent to the loss of good name, health and most of all, the loss of salvation for the unreformed drunkard. The Holy Ghost tells us the drunkard should learn moderation from the beasts. What a disgrace to human nature if the beasts are held to us as examples. This sin of alcoholism does not abate with advancing age. Drunkards are not easily reformed. The Council of Mayence holds that the drunkard transgresses all the ten Commandments.” – St. John Vianney

All taverns were closed down in St. John Vianney’s parish. When they were, the plague of pauperism abated. “There were very few destitute persons at Ars itself.” says M. Pertinand, the schoolmaster; “by suppressing the taverns, M. le Cure had eliminated the main cause of poverty.”

FILTHY ROCK STAR “NUN”

Sor Christina Scuccia: (Huffington Post -edited):”The Italian nun who shattered stereotypes this year with her powerful voice and electric stage presence finally got the chance to meet the biggest rockstar of the Catholic Church — Pope Francis. It fulfilled a dream that the young nun articulated in her very first performance for Italy’s “The Voice”.

“Sister Cristina chose to work with J-Ax – nickname of Alessandro Aleotti- a rapper who became famous in the 1990s; a self-proclaimed atheist covered in piercings and tattoos.

At the end of the video, he picks her up and gives her a spin. Notice the tattoo of Satan with the words “We shall Triumph.” Also notice that he, and Sor Christina both flash the “devil horns” hand sign.

When the judges asked Sister Cristina what the Vatican would think of her singing, she reportedly replied, “I hope Pope Francis will call me now.”

That dream finally came true after Pope Francis’ general audience on Wednesday. According to Ansa, Sister Cristina shook hands with the Pope in St. Peter’s Square and handed him a copy of her self-titled first album, which includes the single “Like A Virgin.” Her cover of Madonna’s classic song has gathered more than 4 million views on YouTube. The pope responded with a big smile. Sister Cristina is slated to perform at the Vatican’s Christmas concert on December 13, along with American singer Patti Smith."

Pope Pius IX Encyclical QUANTA CURA against freedom of conscience (Full text here)

“For you well know, venerable brethren, that at this time men are found not a few who, applying to civil society the impious and absurd principle of “naturalism,” as they call it, dare to teach that “the best constitution of public society and (also) civil progress altogether require that human society be conducted and governed without regard being had to religion any more than if it did not exist; or, at least, without any distinction being made between the true religion and false ones.” And, against the doctrine of Scripture, of the Church, and of the Holy Fathers, they do not hesitate to assert that “that is the best condition of civil society, in which no duty is recognized, as attached to the civil power, of restraining by enacted penalties, offenders against the Catholic religion, except so far as public peace may require.” From which totally false idea of social government they do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an “insanity,”2 viz., that “liberty of conscience and worship is each man’s personal right, which ought to be legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society; and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil, whereby they may be able openly and publicly to manifest and declare any of their ideas whatever, either by word of mouth, by the press, or in any other way.” But, while they rashly affirm this, they do not think and consider that they are preaching “liberty of perdition;” and that “if human arguments are always allowed free room for discussion, there will never be wanting men who will dare to resist truth, and to trust in the flowing speech of human wisdom; whereas we know, from the very teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, how carefully Christian faith and wisdom should avoid this most injurious babbling.”

Benedict and the pseudo-reform: When Ratzinger was "elected" in 2005, he was hailed by many as a "conservative", and some even dreamed that he would restore the Church. This was because of a few, very superficial actions and statements which he made to draw in the Traditional Catholics. However, we can see he was no conservative but was exactly in accord with everything all along. It seems his concessions were mostly about vestments and fancy slippers!

NO AUTHORITY (ANARCHY)

In the New “Mass”, the priest, was blended into the “Community.” Also his priesthood, and his priestly powers are faded out. Only a priest can offer sacrifice. The idea of “Authority”, over the people is phased out, religious anarchy in other words. The priest became one of “us”.

 

TWO “POPES”: “According to Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi, Pope Benedict XVI would not have the title of Cardinal upon his retirement, and would not be eligible to hold any office in the Roman Curia. On 26 February 2013, Father Lombardi stated that upon the Pope’s resignation his style and title are His Holiness Benedict XVI, Roman Pontiff Emeritus or Pope Emeritus. He will keep wearing his distinctive white cassock without the mozzetta and without the red papal shoes, opting to wear a pair of brown shoes he received during a state visit to Mexico. The Cardinal Camerlengo, Tarcisio Bertone, destroyed the Ring of the Fisherman and the lead seal of the pontificate.” (Wikipedia)

Francis continues to call Benedict “Pope”….. “the revelation is further evidence of the remarkable and unprecedented collaboration between the two popes, who stay in touch by phone, in person and by sending notes back and forth across the Vatican gardens via Gaenswein.” Gaenswein told ZDF that Francis had given him a first copy of the interview and told him: “’Bring this to Pope Benedict; you will see that the first page after the contents is empty. Pope Benedict should write there everything that he has in the way of critiques when he has read it and give it back to me.’ ….“Three days later, he said to me, ‘I have four pages here … in a letter, and please give this letter to Pope Francis,’” Gaenswein recalled.

There is no such thing in the Catholic Church as a “retired pope”. The pope is the bishop of Rome, and one diocese cannot have two bishops. If a pope resigns, he is no longer a pope at all. What better metaphor for an apostate church with two anti-popes than a white, two-headed snake!

BLASPHEMIES, DESECRATION and MOCKERY

FRANCIS BLAPHEMES THE BLESSED TRINITY

In March, 2017, Dr. Emilce Cuda, the first woman to receive a doctorate in theology from the so-called Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina, had an audience with Francis. Crux published a report on the meeting, which includes these lines: “In the meeting, the pope jokingly likened this to the way the Holy Trinity functions.

“Inside the Holy Trinity they’re all arguing behind closed doors,” Cuda says Francis told them, “but on the outside they give the picture of unity.”

THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY ACCUSED OF BLASPHEMY

“The Gospel tells us nothing: if she said a word or not … She was quiet, but in her heart – how much she said to the Lord! ‘You told me then – that’s what we have read – that He will be great. You told me that You would give him the throne of his father David, that he will reign over the house of Jacob forever. And now I see Him there!‘ The Blessed Mother was human! And perhaps she would have wanted to say, ‘lies! I have been cheated!’. John Paul II said this when he spoke of the Mother of God at one point. But she was overshadowed with the silence of the mystery that she did not understand, and with this silence, she has accepted that this mystery can grow and flourish in the hope“.- This passage from the morning sermon by Pope Francis for Mass in the Domus Santa Marta was published by Italian editors of Vatican Radio.

 

We are told here that the pine cones represent life after death and the unity of Christians in God……Notice the location of the tabernacle (right hand corner) and also of the “cross”.

“SAINTS” OF THE COUNTER-CHURCH

Vatican City, Feb 17, 2018 / 08:53 am (CNA/EWTN News).- During his annual Lenten meeting with the priests of Rome last week, Pope Francis confirmed that Blessed Pope Paul VI will be made a saint sometime this year. "Paul VI will be a saint this year," the Pope said Feb. 15, at the end of a long question and answer session with priests of Rome. The text of the private meeting was published by the Vatican Feb. 17.

During the meeting, Francis gave lengthy answers to four questions from priests. Afterward, texts containing meditations by Pope Paul VI, a gift from the Pope, were handed out to each of the priests. “I saw it and I loved it,” Francis said about the book.

 

“There are two [recent] Bishops of Rome already saints,” he continued, referring to St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II, who were canonized together in April 2014.

Besides Blessed Pope Paul VI, he noted that John Paul I's cause for beatification is also ongoing. "And Benedict and I," he added, are "on the waiting list: pray for us!"

NOT SURPRISINGLY, THIS PERSON JUST ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH!

Not surprisingly….. this person just isn’t good enough……..The Catholic Herald reports: “The Cause of Pius XII for beatification has stalled, Pope Francis told reporters during an in-flight press conference on his return to Rome from the Holy Land, according to reports. Francis was asked whether he might declare Pope Pius XII, the wartime pontiff who some claim did not do enough to oppose Nazi atrocities against Jews, a Blessed.

“The Cause is open, I looked into it and no miracle has been found yet,” he said, according to Vatican Insider. “So the process has stalled. We have to respect the reality of this Cause. But there’s no miracle and at least one is required for beatification. I can’t think of whether I will beatify him or not.”

NEW WORLD ORDER

“Now the Masonic sect produces fruits that are pernicious and of the bitterest savor for, from what We have above most clearly show, that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view – namely the utter overthrow of that whole religious adnd political order of the world which the christian teacing has produced, and the substituion of a new state of things in accordances with their ideas,” - Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Humanum Genus

Message, April 26, 1968: “…may all men of heart join together peacefully in order that the principles of the United Nations may be not only proclaimed, but put into effect, and that not only the constitution of States may promulgate them, but public authorities apply them…

Message to President of a U.N. Conference, May, 1976: “…this new international economic order that has to be ceaselessly built up.”

Message, Sept. 8, 1977: “Stress is legitimately laid nowadays on the necessity of constructing a new world order…”

Message to United Nations, May 24, 1978: “…we are aware that the path which must lead to the coming of a new international order… cannot in any case be as short as we would like it to be… Disarmament, a new world order and development are three obligations that are inseparably bound together…”

Message, April 26, 1968: “…may all men of heart join together peacefully in order that the principles of the United Nations may be not only proclaimed, but put into effect, and that not only the constitution of States may promulgate them, but public authorities apply them…

“…the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. […] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.”- Pope St. Pius X

BY THEIR FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM:

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.” – St. Matt. 7:18-20

So, what are the fruits of all of this people-pleasing? In America, 4 out of 10 people who were raised “Catholic”, no longer identify as such…..In Ireland weekly Mass attendance levels in Dublin are currently put at 20-22 per cent (of the population), while being as low as 2-3 per cent in some working-class parishes…..

Only 23% of American Catholics attend church weekly.

In 2017, it was announced that the Diocese of Trier, the oldest in Germany was closing 96% of its churches....

1,000 churches have been closed in the United States since 1995.

 

IN THE END, THE CHURCH WILL TRIUMPH!

"A great number (of private prophecies of the saints) have reference to popes and to the papacy; and finally we have many such prophecies relating to the end of the world and the approach of the Day of Judgment. The more noteworthy of the prophecies bearing upon "latter times" seem to have one common end, to announce great calamities impending over mankind, the triumph of the Church, and the renovation of the world. All the seers agree in two leading features as outlined by E.H. Thompson in his "Life of Anna Maria Taigi" (ch. 18): "First they all point to some terrible convulsion, to a revolution springing from most deep-rooted impiety, consisting in a formal opposition to God and His truth, and resulting in the most formidable persecution to which the Church has ever been subject. Secondly, they all promise for the Church a victory more splendid than she has ever achieved here below. We may add another point in which there is a remarkable agreement in the catena of modern prophecies, and that is the peculiar connection between the fortunes of France and those of the Church and the Holy See, and also the large part which that country has still to play in the history of the Church and of the world, and will continue to play to the end of time." Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911

“The Church will be punished because the majority of Her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until She will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, She will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters.”- St. Nicholas von Flue

“The triumph of the Church will then be so complete that nothing like it shall ever be seen, for this will be the last victory of the Church upon earth. Those persons who shall behold this last revolution will thank God for having preserved them to witness this glorious triumph of the Church." - From: "The Prophets and Our Times," by Fr. Gerald Culleton, 1941, pp. 175-76, Imprimatur.

Tu es Petrus, et super hanc petram. Aedificabo Ecclesiam meam, Et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus eam: Et tibi dabo claves. Regni coelorum.

Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. -Matt 16:18-19

The "Catholic Church, the City of God, whose King is Truth, whose law love and whose measure eternity" (Saint Augustine, Ep. CXXXVIII. Ad Marcellinum, C. 3, N. 17), preaching fearlessly the whole truth of Christ and toiling as the love of Christ demands with the zeal of a mother, stands as a blessed vision of peace above the storm of error and passion awaiting the moment when the all-powerful Hand of Christ the King shall quiet the tempest and banish the spirits of discord which have provoked it. - Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Summi Pontificatus

When the lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted. Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Going they went and wept, casting their seeds. But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves. " - Psalm 125:1-7
