26th Sunday after Pentecost
From you was spread abroad the word of the Lord… in every place, your Faith, which is towards God, is gone forth (from the Epistle, 6th Sunday after Epiphany, 1 Thess. 1.2-10)
The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard-seed, which is the least of all seeds; but when it is grown up, it is greater that all herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and dwell in the branches thereof (from the Holy Gospel, 6th Sunday after Epiphany, Mt. 13.31-35)
The one true divine Religion which has God for its author and perfecter (Heb. 12.2) is called “Catholic” because, as St. Augustine says, “diffused by the splendor of one Faith [Eph. 4.5] from the rising to the setting sun [cf., Mal. 1.11].” And of the one true Church professing the one true divine Religion: “Unlike states of human institution, or the sects of heretics, she is not confined to any one country or class of men, but embraces within the amplitude of her love all mankind… Therefore it is written: Thou… hast redeemed us to God, in Thy Blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation, and hast made us to our God a kingdom [Apoc. 5.9,10]. Speaking of the Church, David says: Ask of me and I will give Thee the Gentiles for Thy inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession [Ps. 2.8]…” (The Roman Catechism or The Catechism of the Council of Trent).
“Moreover,” continues the same Catechism, “to this Church belong all the faithful who have existed from Adam to the present day, or who shall exist, in the profession of the true Faith, to the end of time; all of whom are founded and raised upon the one corner-stone, Christ, who made both one, and announced peace to them that are near and to them that are far.” She is “also called universal because all who desire eternal salvation must cling to and embrace her, like those who entered the ark to escape perishing in flood… This [note of catholicity], therefore, is to be taught as a most reliable criterion, by which to distinguish the true from a false Church [a pseudo-Church].”
“Universal because all who desire eternal salvation must cling to and embrace her…” But the “New” ‘Catholic’ DisOrder claims: “The churchES [this is belied by the Eternal Word: I will build My church (Mt. 16.18) – not “churches”!] and separated communities, although we once believed that they suffered from deficiencies [No! True Catholics take exception for it is of Apostolic teaching that they are sects of perdition (2 Pet. 2.1)], are not totally deprived of importance and value in the mystery of salvation. THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST [that is, the pseudo-Christ of the ‘Pontifex’ who, he claims, was “incarnate in souls to infuse the feeling of brotherhood” (1st Oct interview with the Italian “La Reppublica” and quoted also by the “L’Osservatore Romano”; cf., our post Estote Sapientes and "The True God - The Catholic God") – the “New” ‘Christ’ of the Neo-Catholic creed or the “New” ‘Catholic theologism’ (cf., “The Ultimate Delusion ofVatican II ‘Catholicism’”): the reason why a “New” Rite of ‘worship’ had to be, to quote Card. Ratzinger later Pope Benedict XVI, “fabricated”] DOES NOT REFUSE TO USE THEM AS MEANS OF SALVATION, through the strength deriving from the fullness of grace and truth which has been conferred on the Catholic Church [the Church is thereby “deprived of its essential unity,” explains Fr. Paul Kramer, “… united by some essential bond of communion with the (false) religions, and therefore distinguished from them not by essence but by degree” (The Suicide of Altering the Faith in the Liturgy, 43)!], thus Vatican II proclaims (“Unitatis Redintegratio”), the Neo-Catholic ‘Catechism’ (n. 819) proposes, and ‘Blessed’ John Paul II reiterated (“Ut unum sint,” 10).
“…Distinguish the true from a false Church.” In calling the sects of perdition “churches” (Vatican II document “Unitatis Redintegration” quoted above), the “New” ‘Catholic’ DisOrder inaugurated by the perverted Second Vatican Council betrays itself as that false or pseudo-Church – just as ‘Protestantism’ was a false or pseudo-Christianity (cf., our post “Anti-Christian Conspiracy: Scriptural Truthand Historical Fact”) – the putrid bastard seeds of which were sown in seminaries and monasteries in the 1930s (cf., our post “The Year 1929”): putting itself on equal footing with them. The regime of Msgr. Fellay of the Neo-SSPX has contributed to this “diabolical disorientation” with a false ecclesiology: mistaking the Church with its conquerably ubiquitous institutions.
The Holy Church has now been reduced to a mustard-seed – to the remnant (Is. 37.32) inhabiting the mountains (Mt. 24.16), the eagles gathered together… wheresoever the Body shall be (Mt. 24.28) – yet still scattered throughout the world professing the same Faith of the Apostolic Tradition, worshipping the true “Catholic God” of both mercy AND JUSTICE professed only in the same traditional Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and united with the same “hierarchical subordination by true obedience to the SUMMUS Pontifex [crowned with the Papal tiara as the Sovereign Vicar of the King of kings and Lord of lords]” through a truly Catholic bishop (cf., “Catholic Resistance”): purified, readied to be sown in their own [purified] fields (Jer. 23.2) – these good figs… I will bring them again into this land: and I will build them up… and I will plant them (Jer. 24.5,6) – during the “period of peace” promised by Our Lady of Fatima for the last measure of increase required for filling the empty places in Heaven.
