And Elias, the prophet, stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch (Ecclesiasticus. 48.1, DRV)

Divine Care


Laetare Sunday

Laetare Jerusalem (Rejoice, O Jerusalem, Is. 66.10). Thus, Holy Church bids us in her Introit for today's Mass as it is in her, not in the Synagogue which witnessed the tragic destruction of its life - the accursed Temple which shall never rise again - that this passage was perfectly realized. Indeed, the Lord is round about His people, from henceforth now and forever (from the Tract of the Mass, Ps. 124.1-2) so that she shall not be moved [that is, she shall not fall into official idolatrous cult for she can never fall into official doctrinal error in the first place: being deceived with error thou adore strange gods, and serve them (Deut. 30.17); cf., Mt. 16.18 why 1 Tim. 3.15 - contrary to what the 'Bible-only' sectarians impiously asserted].

In today's Holy Gospel (the feeding of five thousand men, Jn. 6.1-15), the Lord and Savior manifested the might of His divine solicitude providing, out of five barley loaves and two fishes, for the hungry multitude who followed Him that they not faint even unto spiritual death. By this miraculous bodily refection, He is pointing to us who now see with the eyes of Divine Faith the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist :
1. It was only Our Lord Who distributed - why the true Catholic priesthood is the perpetuation unto perfection (Ex. 29.9) of the priesthood of Old to which office alone belongs the handling and administration of the Sacred.
2. The care for the fragments (Jn. 6.12) of the Living Bread - for even in their smallest particle is, by Concomittance, the same Real, True and Substantial Lord and Savior whole and entire -by His priests lest they be desecrated as when received by unwashed unconsecrated hands (the Protestant practice of the "Vatican II-Church" and granting that the Neo-Catholic priest standing as a Protestant assembly-"presider" in Lutheran or Episcopalian attire is positively, not probably, a validly ordained one).
Truly, the Church was still not moved to hand over to the dogs the Living Bread though the desacralizing 'spirit' of Vatican II has swept so vast a number of her indifferent and complacent children under false Neo-Catholic/Neo-SSPX obedience by Apostolic Resistance of standing fast and holding the traditions... we have received of the Apostles. Laetare Jerusalem! for, to borrow from the counsel of St. Francis de Sales in one of his Sermons on the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, she, the true Catholic Church being the true solicitous Spouse of a most solicitous Christ, has chosen the more consoling role: to rather attend to the great care of her Beloved Who comes to her tabernacle under the form of a hapless wafer.

"Lex orandi, lex credendi"


Feast of St. John Capistran
The Franciscan who preached a Crusade in the 15th c. which delivered Europe 
from the Mohammedans

The supernaturally heroic service this valiant son of Saint Francis rendered to the glory of God and His kingdom on earth - the Church - was rendered 'politically correct' by the "Vatican II-Church" (1965) so as not to contradict the 'ecumenical' "disorientation" (Our Lady of Fatima) of Rome: "They [the Mohammedans, the Jews, heretics and schismatics, Freemasons and Communists, and all the unbelievers] are one with us in worshipping one merciful [g]od" (Antipope Bergoglio in the pseudo-Encyclical "Gaudium evangelii," n. 252) ---

The soon-to-be Pope 'Saint' John Paul II 'the Great' in grossly manifest violation of the First Commandment

Buddist mockery of the traditional Catholic altar setting:the devil of course will not mock his inspired 
Masonic-Protestant "table" on which the New M[e]ss 
is celebrated
And the Neo-Catholic harlotry continued:

Holy Church teaches us in her formula of prayer for today's Feast: "O God, Who through blessed John didst enable Thy faithful people to triumph over the enemies of the Cross by the power of the Most Holy Name of Jesus..." ---

1) that the Mohammedans or Moslems are one of the enemies of the Cross; and,
2) that they must be subjected on their knees at the Name of Jesus Christ (cf., Phil. 2.10).

Now, how the "Vatican II-Church" falsified the grace bestowed on our Saint and the benefit obtained by Christendom and even disjointed these most wonderful effects from the "power of the Most Holy Name of Jesus" in its "New Opening Prayer": "Lord, you raised up St. John of Capistrano to give your people comfort in their trials."

This is another proof why the "New 'Missal'" of 'Pope Paul VI'-Bugnini is illegal for it contravenes by a mere volumus ("We wish...") the Divine judgment manifested by the ex cathedra decree of Pope St. Pius V: "...Let Masses not be sung or read according to any other formula other than... of this [our Traditional Latin] Missal" (Papal Bull Quo primum). Indeed, the forged novel formula being enjoined instead this day in the New Church is a contemptuously impious subtle departure under the pretext of a "New" (updated and improved) calendar. Hence, a New forged-'law' of praying (cf., the lies and forgeries in the institution of the abomination of desolation in the holy place, Mt. 24.4, by 'Pope Paul VI' and of the Vatican Press in our post Obey God rather than men) - "lex orandi" - brings about the New false 'religion' ("lex credendi" - literally, law of believing) of "Vatican II 'Catholicism'" and the same the other way around..

The Great Catholic Battle (IV): "Dominus tecum"


Feast of St. John Damascene

Dominus tecum (The Lord is with thee, from the Holy Gospel on the Feast of the Annunciation). Therefore, the Immaculata - in whose womb the Son of God would be made flesh by the power of the Holy Ghost - had nothing to do whatsoever with not even the shortest moment of bearing, through Original Sin, the image of that proud and filthy queen of the impious, immodest and the impure - that is, the devil. We have been reborn into the image and likeness of Her Son and many times over - in God's grace and mercy - were able to regain it at the Confessional where not only our sins but also our semblance to the devil get blotted out by the Most Precious Blood of the Lord and Savior at the words "Absolvo te..." And to guard us against this most unfortunate loss of 'human dignity' in its authentic sense (not the Masonic ideal: 'show off your worth, your true colors, no matter what for god created you THAT way') - that is, of a most perfect conformity or our most perfect transformation into the image and likeness of the Son of God - we have been given a powerful contact point with the Immaculata: Her Scapular, wherewith we are clothed - validly at that - with Her own virtues so that "as the Mother is, so Her children;" and, our most powerful contact point with God: the Holy Eucharist* through Which we are assimilated to Him Who Is the Bright Radiance of the Form of God (Phil. 2.6).
* Of course, not that kind confected with "ineffective prayers" (Fr. G. Amorth, Vatican's Chief Exorcist) by Protestant assembly-"presiders" (in Lutheran or Episcopalian 'Communion Service' attire) of the "New M[e]ss" (revised, as with the "useless" New Rite of Exorcism, to reflect the "New THEO[god]..." of Vatican II and which the SSPX now accepts to have been "legitimately promulgated") on the Masonic-Protestant-style Neo-Catholic "tables."

For or Against the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - No Neo-Catholic Nonsense 'FULLy...' (or 'partially...')


Third Sunday in Lent

He who is not with Me is against Me
(from today's Holy Gospel, Lk. 11.14-28)

She [the Immaculata] shall crush thy [the devil's and his minions'] head (Gen. 3.15). Today, we see Our Lord's head-on confrontation with the devil and his party - no 'dialogue' with them: the devil to be expelled; his party to be refuted and rebuked (Lk. 11.14-28). Thus, the Kingdom of God on earth - the true Catholic Church on bended knees before her Eucharistic King of kings and Lord of lords (Apoc. 19.16) - cannot but militate against the "New DisOrder" of Satan and his dum[b]ies [sinners, apostates, heretics and schismatics, the "perfidious" (the Roman Missal) Synagogue of Satan (Apoc. 2.9; 3.9) and its tentacles: Freemasonry and Communism].

The Divine Judgment - He that is not with Me is against Me (Lk. 11.23) - as was the CONSTANT voice of the Chair of Peter: "...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... And that nobody can be saved no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church" (Pope Eugene IV in the Council of Florence, Feb. 4, 1442; see, The Great Tribulation). But the soft, 'luving', 'umble pseudo-Church of Vatican II IN CONTRADICTION: "They are one with us in adoring one and merciful [g]od" ("Vatican II-Church" 'Pontifex', in his imitative 'Encyclical' Gaudium Evangelii, n. 252). Hence, the Word of God, living and more... piercing than any two edged sword (Heb. 4.12), has, against the Neo-Catholic Church - which the Neo-SSPX SG fallaciously considers the Church in which 'Tradition' must be brought back (according to his recent blasphemous 'Rosary Crusade' intention) - this most severe rebuke He once uttered to the first man whom He raised to be His Vicar: Go behind Me, Satan! (Mt. 16.23)

"De Spiritu Sancto est!"


Feast of St. Joseph
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Confessor

That which is conceived... is of the Holy Ghost
(from today's Holy Gospel, Mt. 1.18-21)

“We don't understand it,” says the readily posed common objection by the post-Vatican II generation – and even by a number of elder Catholic folks - against the Traditional Roman Rite of Divine Worship in Latin (the Traditional Latin Mass).

When St. Joseph learned of the Most Blessed and Immaculate Virgin bearing Child, although he did not knew Her, he thought of dismissing Her privately rather than exposing Her publicly – his confession of Her perfect fidelity in chasity but it was a confession of a perfect soul in “dark night:” how was it made possible without offense against God and men? God only answered that the conception of the Child was entirely by the operation of the Holy Ghost – this should suffice; and Joseph, a just man that he is, did not murmur, “I still don't understand...,” for God's work need not conform to our sens[e]-ible manner of appreciation.

Thus, the objection, among a host of its possible conclusions, only betrays that what was proposed to be rather 'rationalized' was already actually something else: other than that same perfect sanctifying work of the Holy Ghost that was the pattern of the Tabernacle and Temple service of the true God in the Old dispensation (which was man's preparation to adore at the foot of the Crucified – the real Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world by the shedding of His Most Sacred and Precious Blood). From the service of God – why all the redeemed, from the Summus Pontifex down to the least layman, are directed towards the primacy and centrality of God “really, truly, and substantially” (The Roman Catechism) present as our King before all ages, delight[ing] to be with [us], on His exalted throne [why the traditional Catholic altar is high – elevated] in His sacred court [why the Traditional Catholic Sanctuary is arranged as a “royal court” - not the Protestant celebration 'stage' for commemorative-Supper-fellowship], cf., our post “The CatholicSanctuary Prefigured of Old – II” - to the service and cult of man: the “People of [non-'Catholic God' – according to the 'presiding' usurper (why, cf., our post The powers of heaven shall be moved)]” is the one really addressed and made the “New” focal point of the reverse orientation and direction (the Immaculata in battle-array does not apologize about it: “diabolical disorientation”) and this sense of the 'spirit' of Vatican II, oozing from its very heart which is the “New 'Mass'”, was not lost to the subconscious power of the mind which would only logically require a 'rationalization' of this 'right'. And that therefore the “New Rite of 'Mass'” is not the work of our eternal High Priest but a “fabrication” (Card. Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, Preface to Msgr. Gamer's “Reform of the Roman Liturgy”) conceived of perverted men is evidenced by the impious hands of a Freemason, a dum[b]y of the Synagogue of Satan (Apoc. 2.9; 3.9) - Bugnini, modeling the sanctuary of the “New Church” temples after the Masonic chambers (cf., our post “Catholic Sanctuary II”, link already provided above) - assisted by the heretical leaders of “Bible-only” sectarians [why the interior of the “New Church” temples do not differ also from their 'table'-furnished ones].

Pope St. Pius X taught that the Holy Sacrifce of the Mass is “the perfect and highest form of prayer.” And one of the “royal” roads to the heights of authentic prayer where there is the pervasion by the Holy Ghost, our Father St. John of the Cross, in his Ascent of Mount Carmel, teaches: “not by understanding.”

A most blessed Feast to everyone!

Transfiguration Unto Christian Perfection


The Transfiguration of the Lord and Savior

Lord, it is good for us to be here
(from today's Holy Gospel, Mt. 17.4 – Second Sunday in Lent)

A short time before Our Lord's transfiguration on Mount Thabor in Galilee, He declared Peter blessed for confessing what the Heavenly Father revealed – that the Messias is not only the Son of man but also a divine Person: the Son of the living God (16.16); but, from that time, Jesus began to show to His disciples, that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the ancients, and scribes and chief priests, and be put to death, and the third day rise again (v.21): a truth which Peter could not accept – why he got this severe rebuke from the Lord and Master: Go behind Me, Satan, thou art a scandal to Me: because thou savorest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men (v.23).

The Lord and Savior, already foresaw this human weakness in the face of pain, suffering, and death. But He would not do away with these facets of defeat – not until the most glorious manifestation of His ultimate triumph over sin and evil, their cause, at the end of time; rather, He would transform them into instruments of Christian victory – but only in so far as they are attached to the Cross and saturated by His Most Sacred and Precious Blood. He was moved, therefore, with compassion for them and their weakness since He also foreknew the severe trials to which His disciples would shortly be subjected in witnessing His bitter Passion and death, as well as the more distant crosses which, when He had finally departed from them, would be theirs on their battle for eternal life and happiness with God, and to strengthen them for their burdens ahead and give them a foretaste of the eternal rewards, He took apart those most devoted to Him, and unfolded to their eyes a glimpse of His divine glory.

Effects similar to those which the three Apostles experienced on Mount thabor are wrought in the souls of those who assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and partake worthily of Holy Communion – they are fortified* against the assault of passion, they are powerfully assisted in bearing the crosses of life, and they receive here below a foretaste of heavenly – not a sentimental or emotional – joy and bliss. So that truly, each time the worthy communicant kneels before our traditional sacred altar, he can say with Peter, Lord it is good for us to be here.
* Something which the “New 'Mass'” - as with the other “New 'Sacraments'” and “New 'Sacramentals'” - with its “ineffective prayers” (claims Fr. Gabriel Amorth, Vatican's Chief Exorcist, on the “New Rite of Exorcism” even approved by a Vatican II-Pope which is just a Sacramental) does not confer as experiences and the widespread basest perversions in and out of the institutional Church that has become 'possessed' for the headquarters, especially the Vatican of Ecumenical “Disorientation” (Our Lady of Fatima), by the infiltrators-propagandists of the pseudo-Church (cf., our post “TheYeart 1929”) eloquently testify.

The Holy Eucharist – made present on the altar according to our sacred Traditional Rite – is the living fountain of graces, whereas the other Traditional Sacraments are so many streams conveying graces to our souls; the former contains the Author of grace Himself, the latter contain grace.

The grace of the Holy Eucharist is superior to that of the other Sacraments; these others are but a preparation for and ordained to Holy Communion; Baptism and Penance remove sin, Confirmation and Extreme Unction strengthen the soul against external assaults of spiritual debility, Holy Orders and Matrimony dispose a man for the proper fulfillment of certain special duties. Thus the grace of each of the other Sacraments is a preparation for the crowning grace of the Holy Eucharist.

The grace of this Most Holy Sacrament is that of spiritual nourishment by which the soul is transformed into the likeness of Christ. The results of this grace are similar to those which ordinary food produces in the body – it repairs; it strengthens; it delights; it sustains. The Holy Eucharist: by remitting venial sins repairs the losses which the soul suffers through these sins; it strengthens the soul by uniting man through charity more closely with God and his neighbor; it delights the soul by exciting actual devotion and fervor; it sustains the soul by fortifying it against temptation, by repressing the inordinate cravings of the flesh for sensual pleasures and passion, and by facilitating the attainment of eternal life.

As natural food is not of use t one who is physically dead, so neither does Holy Communion produces spiritual nourishment in a soul that is spiritually dead, that is, conscious of mortal sin. Those who receive unworthily the Real and Substantial Presence of the Lord and Savior in Holy Communion do not receive benefit*, but on the contrary eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the Body of the Lord (1 Cor. 11.29).
* The case with the sacrilegious “New 'Mass'” - with its “ineffective prayers,” as noted above, having beed changed to reflect the “NewTHEO...” (Theo: “God” in Greek).

Spiritual Communion, which consists in an ardent desire of Sacramental Communion – for those who cannot by any means assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (our Traditional Rite of Worship in Latin) and receive Holy Communion, confers a considerable fruit of the Holy Eucharist, although it is inferior to Sacramental Communion.

The Eternal Word Healeth All Things


Ember Friday in the First Week of Lent

Wilt thou be made whole?
(from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 5.1-15)

Wilt thou be made whole? Divine Wisdom teaches us: It was neither herb, nor mollifying plaster that healed them, but Thy word, O Lord, which healeth all things (Wis. 16.12). The true God Whom we must adore and worship according to the Eternal Word: Mercy and wrath quickly come from Him, and His wrath looketh upon sinners (Ecclus. 5.7) - the "Catholic God" of our Traditional Rite of the Mass in Latin.

The festering Neo-Catholic "disorientation" (Our Lady of Fatima)...

CatholicOnline: "Anniversary of Pope Francis: Richness of Mercy and Compassion, Inside and Out." - But the 'pontifex' is only exemplifying his non-"Catholic God" ("I do not believe... in a Catholic God. There is no such thing as a Catholic God," in the Vatican's "L'Osservatore Romano," 2nd Oct. 2013) - the "New THEO..." of VaticanII: [g]od of all mercy and compassion who knows no wrath, cf., our post "The Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II 'Catholicism'" - a "delusion of sinners" (St. Alphonsus Liguori, Bishop and Doctor of the Church).

In the Royal Court of the "Catholic God"


Thursday in the First Week of Lent

But God is our King before the ages
(Ps. 73.12, from today's Office of Prime in the Roman Breviary)

Only Our Lord can we find in the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart should lead to the purification of our heart - the expanding consummation or extinguishing of every movement in it towards the pride of 'liberty of opinion' (you shall be as Gods, knowing what is good and evil, Gen 3.5) - which leads to 'liberty of conscience' which in turn leads to 'indifferentism': each one to his own 'truth', let's just 'respect' one another's view - and the satisfaction of the disordered cravings for sensual pleasure which all lead us to the service of the devil who sways and conspires with these wayward movements by too subtly deceptive allurements of half-truths and the seemingly good: the purification - active on our part and passive on God's - of everything that is not Him. Therefore we need a supernatural light - the light of our Faith, for Christ may dwell in [our] hearts by Faith, Eph. 3.17 - which makes us see, not so much as the vilest tendencies and inclinations of our fallen nature which drag it down to level of the dogs (from today's Holy Gospel, Mt. 15.21-28), nay even worse today [for dogs burning openly in their lust on the streets do not deviate from the Natural Law]; as the healing and saving hand of God working by means of a far exalted a manner (the Lesson, Is. 55.6-11, last Tuesady) in the trustfully persistent prayer of the humble (Have mercy on me, O Lord, Mt. 15.22) before His royal throne of grace and mercy in our midst - "royal throne": sharp contrast, as in today's Holy Gospel, of Who God is according to His judgement (But God is our King before the ages) and who we are, as sinners, standing before Him, the dogs... the whelps (Mt. 15.26,27); and this "royal throne" is none other than our traditional Catholic high altar: 1) upon which seats Him Who is the awaited King - Thou Son of David, (Mt. 15.22) Whose kingdom [the true Catholic Church] there shall be no end (Lk. 1.33) - and Whom we must discern by a great... faith (Mt. 15.28) to be the King of kings and Lord of lords (Apoc. 19.16) under the form of an unleavened Wafer-Bread Which is 2) reserved only for a) the faithful [not to 'ecumenical' Protestants, Jews, Schismatics, or infidels who are allowed in the "New 'Church'"; cf., the abomination (Mt. 24.15) perpetrated by 'Blessed' Pope John Paul II against the First Commandment for the sake of Vatican II 'ecumenism' in our post The Great Tribulation] b) in the state of grace [Penance replaced by the "New Sacrament" of 'Reconciliation' in which the traditional formula of absolution is rarely heard: sin devalued by priests of the "New 'Catholic Theology'" into a mere 'weakness'] - Divine judgement: It is not good to take the Bread of the children and to cast it to the dogs (Mt. 15.26)...

In the Masonic-Protestant chamber of the "New 'Catholic Church'" (the "Vatican II-Church")

... When the modern-day anti-pope Bergoglio (Francis), cf., our post The powers of heaven shall be moved, installed this day a year ago, made new 19 strands of scarlet (Apoc. 17.4) - the cardinals of the Vatican II-'Church' (the "Novus Ordo" or the "New 'Catholic Order'); cf., our post Illuminare - he addressed them at St. Peter's Basilica: "A ["Novus Ordo"] cardinal enters... NOT A ROYAL COURT" (23rd Feb.). Why the King of kings and Lord of lords got dethroned from the high altar: perched on anything somewhere else or even booted out of the sanctuary. "Not a royal court" but a Masonic-Protestant chamber: cf., our post "The Catholic Sanctuary: Prefigured in the Old Testament (II)".

The Great Catholic Battle - Spirit of Penance


Ember Wednesday in the First Week of Lent

Do penance... I say to you: but unless you do penance, you shall all likewise perish (Mt. 4.17; Lk. 13.3 - Our Lord seems to recall to us today in pointing to the rebellious Jews their folly compared to the humility exhibited by the men of Ninive, doing penance in sackcloth and ashes, who were but pagans in hearing the penitential preaching of the Prophet Jonas, Mt. 12-38-50). Thus the authentic Catholic spirit has this note of fellowship of the Crucified - fellowship of His sufferings (Phil. 3.10); not content with merely 'feeling sorry' but of exercising (cf., 1 Tim. 4.7) our whole being - body and soul - in reparative sorrow for our sins and that of others. And given the disastrous moral upheaval around us which the Immaculata long foresaw coming, the Great Sign in heaven" appearing at Fatima in Portugal insisted all the more: "Penance! Penance! Penance!" Did the Church, especially the hierarchy, took it seriously? Almost the whole of the hierarchy was even instrumental in lessening the sense of our need to do more penance actually (which implies a prior weakening of the Catholic sense of the evil of sin and of the corruption and disorder in us inflicted by Original Sin): in the revised Calendar they devised for the "New 'Catholic Church'" or the Vatican II-'Church', for example, they dropped the Ember Days (which call for fasting and abstinence for three days: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday), and restricted Friday as a day of abstinence during Lent only (a Friday outside the Lenten season is, in the traditional discipline, always a day of abstinence - except when Christmas Day falls on it) - they maintain Ash Wednesday and Good Friday as days of fasting and abstinence but we wonder how the "New 'Catholic'" fasting is observed (which used to be only one full meal a day throughout Lent excepting Sundays and concurring days of solemn Feasts, as of St. Joseph on the 19th and of the Annunciation on the 25th) nay if practically existent at all. The 'Modernist' "spirit of Vatican II:" "CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE CHANGED and treating the faithful as if they were a brute that needs sensual appetite restraints is incompatible with the 'dignity of man' [the religion of the Masonic "New World Order"]." If Protestantism or 'Bible-only'-sectarianism is but 'convenient #Christianity', the "New 'Catholicism'" is but 'convenient Catholic Religion' which is just the same, of course, as 'convenient Christianity' - the bastard Protestantized 'Catholicism'.

The Great Battle


First Sunday in Lent

Begone, Satan!
(Mt. 4.10)

The true Great Battle does not consist in trimming down sins - as is the shallow perception in the "New 'Catholic' Church" or the Vatican II 'Church' (and this after more than 55 years of an 'understood' New 'Mass' - which, even in its appearance, is but a Protestant fellowship-meal in the local language of church-goers); it is life-long battle against sin and its very roots: the disordered cravings of the flesh for pleasures, against pride and vanity, and against the subtle deceptions of the ancient infernal enemy - the devil - by way of allurements (half-truths and seeming goods). In this Battle, the Christ routed the ancient liar and deceiver by the Truth - but how the "New 'Catholic Church'" lost the Battle by entering into a 'respectful dialogue' with the devil (a big no, no in Exorcism) and the culture of his "New World Order":

Notice how, in today's Holy Gospel, the Eternal Word reveals to us the manner through which the ancient enemy, that is, the devil, makes us prey to him who, as a roaring lion, goeth about unceasingly, day and night, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet. 5.8).

Concupiscence of the flesh: “Command that these stones be made bread” (Mt. 4.3) - why should not the Christ and His adherents rather attend in meeting the practical needs of peoples “by which all live, without which everything would be as dead” (St. Augustine) and as maddening? Which means today: more lucrative opportunities and the most pleasurable sensual experience.

Pride and vanity: “Cast Thyself down [from the pinnacle]... that... His angels... shall bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone” (Mt. 4.5,6). Which means today: “Want more followers – more 'likes, shares, and retweets'? Make yourself a most impressionable 'selfie' star; show your 'true colors' - don't care about how strange may be your preference; why, [g]od made you that way.

Avarice: 'See all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them...All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me' (Mt. 4.9). Which means today: “You want to live in my paradise of a New World Order where there is prosperity, liberty of self expression and conscience, equal rights for all, and brotherhood built on mutual respect of one's personal beliefs? You cannot insist that its skylines be dominated anymore by the Cross and you must be willing to fulfill only your Catholic things on days, times, and circumstances I determine to be not in conflict with its New culture of work and leisure [the devil here does not outrightly demand the renunciation of the Cross and the primacy of the demands of Catholic sanctity and perfection].

The ancient liar and deceiver ensnares us by what is seemingly true and good. He pounds therefore on our first contact point with Him Who Is the Truth and the Supreme Good: our mind – darkened and weakened by Original Sin. He spews on it seemingly laudable principles and viewpoint: all half-truths; and, stirs up our imagination to dominate that which is the highest power of the soul, clouding and making it preoccupied rather with revolutionary sensual impressions – than with the ever-valid truths of the Catholic Faith and other truths or principles derived from them which make us think and see with Our Lord (which is to have the sign of the Living God, Apoc. 7.2, in their foreheads, Apoc. 7.3 – where they were signed by the Cross in Baptism, the Sacrament of Faith, and then again at their Confirmation in the Faith).

Therefore, Our Lord shows us also how we are to crush and rout the devil. By recourse to the Word of God – the foundation of the saving Catholic or Universal Faith, preached in all the creation that is under heaven (Col. 1.23) – for Faith... cometh by hearing; and hearing, by the word of Christ (Rom. 10.17). If everything that is not of the Word of God is sin, so all that is not of Faith is sin (Rom. 14.23).

To have recourse to the Word of God is, normally, to listen to and obey the episkopoi or the bishops (cf., Acts 20.28) whom the Spirit of Truth appointed to rule the church of God (ibid.). But when they were about to walk not according to the Faith, as St. Paul the Apostle prophesied: of themselves shall arise men speaking perverse things (Acts 20.30) – which also means walking disorderly, and not according to the traditions [of the Apostles], 2 Thess. 3.6 – He sent us the Immaculata (cf., our post The Great Sign in Heaven) that we should not follow pastors of “diabolical disorientation” starting in 1960 (cf., "Our Lady and the Disorientation of Rome") when they would silence the Holy See from thundering anathemas (cf., Pope John XXIII on the "New" way of being Vatican II Church in The Great Tribulation) – except against Catholics who hear the Word in standing fast and holding the Apostolic traditions – into preaching “ecumenism” [Vatican II teaching that Catholics and unbelievers all worship one and the same (g)od: “they are one with us in worshipping the one merciful [g]od” - the 'pontifex' in the first (pseudo-)Encyclical of his modern-day antipapacy, “Gaudium Evangelii,” n. 252], cf., Paul VI in our post "Our Great Reversal".

Of Old, He already foretold of this our great battle under the mantle of the Immaculata: She shall crush the infernal serpent's head (Gen. 3.15) – that is, the devil's perverted angelic intellect: the sewer of all the half-truths which have now converged into such a synthesis in the 'modernist'-conditioned de-Catholicized mind no longer shrinking in disgust with and abhorrence of the “basest perversion” (St. John Chrysostom in our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") in the air everywhere: homosexual behavior is a 'natural' mode of being, hence not only must be accepted but also 'respect'-ed and protected [the Masonic 1789 'Enlightenment' with its 'Rights of Man' is built on 'naturalism' – the proud assertion that there's nothing wrong with human nature: Catholic teaching of Original Sin was a myth, no thanks to Christ and His mission, which the Church is to carry on until the consummation, of redeeming man from the dominion of the devil through pride, the vain allurements of the world and the disordered cravings of the flesh]. Unfortunately, a thousand... fell at Her side, and ten thousand at Her right hand (from the Tract of today's Liturgy, Ps. 90): a horrible figure for the maintream nominal 'Catholics', the so-called “Vatican II Church,” who have, silently or tacitly, come to terms with this “New World Order” 'culture' – why the Apocalytic sentence of the Eternal Word pronounced against a church, thou hast the name of being alive and thou art dead (3.1), appplies to them. “If one is gay and he seeks the will of God, who am I to judge,” says their 'pontifex' – well, one who abandons himself to his disordered sexual attraction, subscribing to its Masonic justification by 'naturalism', and yet said to be seeking still the will of God is a delusion only of a sick (Is. 1.5)-headed 'modernist' mind: the effeminate and liers with mankind... shall not possess the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6.10). They have lost the flavor of Christ's salutary salt (Mt. 5.13).

Sedevacantist Delusion (III)


Quinquagesima Sunday

Lord, that I may see.
(Lk. 18.41)

'Sedevacantism' - that is, that the Church, for more than 55 years now, has no visible head since the death of Pope Pius XII (1958) with the Chair occupied by modern-day antipopes (who materially taught what were previously condemned by the Teaching Authority) - is nothing but a 'theological' opinion. The Sedevacantist N.O.W. themselves admit it: "there are clergy who are still either unable or unwilling to admit... the theological position of sedevacantism..." ("You Can't Have It 'Your Way': Response to Fr. Chazal's Argument on Sedevacantism"). And with this their own revelation: "despite some admitted difficulties, nevertheless, the only [italics, theirs - Discalced Carmelites of Traditional Observance] position that can make sense of the apostasy of the Modernist Vatican II Church without at the same time contradicting Catholic teaching [it is, for it is de fide: "...from the institution of Christ the Lord Himself, or by divine right that the blessed Peter has perpetual successors in the primacy over the universal Church" (Canon of Vatican I; cf., the "unanimous opinion" of the Fathers of the Church in our post "Against Sedevacantism-I") - by this same Canon is Sedevacantism therefore anathematized; cf., "Against Sedevacantism-II" why their equation of "perpetual" with "always" is absurd] (ibid.).

Now, the apostasy facilitated by the disoriented Vatican itself - an implication of the way the Great Sign in heaven introduced the Third Part of Her "Great Secret" in ending its Second Part: "In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved etc." [the "etc." here obviously contains a detailed revelation why "the dogma of the Faith" will not be preserved in Rome - and this public complete revelation She desired to be revealed in 1960; that is, to forestall Vatican II which was convened in 1962] - effected a most astonishing if not amusing imbalance of mind, having been diabolically turned upside-down not in an expectedly horrifying manner but subtly in all deception the devil's angelic mind is still naturally capable of; corrupted mind disjointed from the Truth - therefore from certitude. But the Truth is the foundation of Catholic position hence there is certitude in the Catholic position - far from this is the "new opinion on the block" which could only identify itself as a 'theological position' yet dare claim, and despite admission of "some" self-built "admitted difficulties" [an understatement really: there are, in the first place, hosts of logical difficulties flowing from its effort to not to contradict the de fide reference given above and, in the second, the canonical difficulty, vis-a-vis the Pio-Benedictine Code of 1917 - the Canon Law of Catholic Tradition - of their interpretation of St. Robert Bellarmine's opinion on "manifest heresy" which they cloaked with the status of an overriding canon], to be "the Catholic position" that it is "the only one that can make sense..."

In another social media venue, the same Sedevacantist faction betrays a most glaring confusion of what really constitutes definitive Catholic teaching. When they were confronted by a Discalced Carmelite religious of Catholic Resistance on the public resistance position of the Apostle Saint Paul against his Superior, no less than the very Prince himself of the Apostles in his episode of dissimulation in the second chapter of Saint Paul's Epistle to the Galatians, they claim:

N.O.W. @Novus...  Apr 2
@Io... Resistance can be against commands, not to magisterial teaching or universal laws.

to which our religious replied:

Jo... @Io...  Apr 2
@Novus... Gal. 2.11ff, w/St. Augustine & St. Thomas, deny your understanding of Resistance.

.. Not at all. You need to go by the Church's teaching on these passages, not simply quote primary sources.

Sedevacantists point to the commentaries in the Haydock Bible on the Galatian episode where the Apostle Saint Paul withstood publicly his Superior to his face... because he was to blame [for belying the Gospel - the Truth - which the Apostle already preached to the Gentiles]. Hence, confusing the opinions of Bishop Challoner and Fr. Haydock which cited the "common opinion" -'til St. Thomas Aquinas expressed a different one - to be the definitive "Church's teaching" on the passages referred to!

.. The typical opinion followed on the matter is that of St .Augustine, that St. Peter was only guilty of imprudence in Gal 2.

@NOW Very interesting reply.

@NOW Your challenge is not the DEFINITVE "Church's teaching" @ all but your source's highlight of the Bp's & the Rev's opinion...

St. Paul, from v.14, takes St. Peter's dissimulation to be an ESSENTIAL undermining of the Faith...

... ... trashing the very core of the Gospel St. Paul was commissioned to preach. Therefore, the Angelic Doctor teaches "... It was NOT LIGHT" (Super Ep. S. Pauli, ad Gal) - this I highlight.

Nothing DEFINITIVE then contrary to what you asserted earlier. "Common opinion" does not settle ... therefore, the Angelic Doctor says NO - the letter and tenor of St. Paul's resistance (vv.14-21) does not support it.

And the Sedevacantists were silent.

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
