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

When "not everyone who [ 'prays' ] shall enter the kingdom of heaven..."


Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace in seasonable aid...[for] in [Her] is all grace of the way and of the truth, in [Her] is all hope of life and of virtue (Heb. 4.16; Ecclus. 24.25).

"May Thy healing work, O Lord, both mercifully free us from our perversities, and lead us to those things which are right..." (Postcommunion). Our Immaculate Mother, Mediatrix of All Graces, constituted by God to be that golden cistern holding among us the living water (cf., Jer. 2.13), indeed pleads for us before the "Lord... Most High... Great King OVER ALL" (from the "Introit" of the Mass, Ps. 46.2) that Her children be freed from "all hurtful things, and [given] all things which be profitable for us" (from the "Collect") - things which in their sum total could pertain only to the salvation and perfection of our soul (their ultimate end as regards us, for all things must redound first to the glory of the Most High Lord and King). MANY have recourse to our Mediatrix that they may be freed from what is hurtful to their bodily health, commerce, their plans and ambitions to clinch a comfortable lot in the "New World" city-'paradise' (very soon to be shaken and annihilated from the face of the earth), and the like this-worldly concerns but , now, not so much as forgetful anymore as ignorant - no thanks to the "false prophets" (from the Holy Gospel, Mt. 7.15-21) "in scarlet and purple" (Apoc. 17.4; cf., the "pseudo-Church" of infiltrated dumbies of the "Synagogue of Satan") and those they have perverted in Neo-Catholic 'seminaries', 'universities', and 'monasteries' - of the many and deep spiritual infirmities and "perversities" they may be actually immersed in by the subtle deceptions, snares, schemes and suggestions of the world, the ego and the flesh, and the devil: Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee; and THEY HAVE NOT LAID OPEN THY INIQUITY, TO EXCITE THEE TO PENANCE [BUT TO 'LUV'] (Lam. 2.14). They run the risk of being "interested devotees" and therefore of being "false devotees" (St. Louis de Montfort: "Mater Sanctae Spei"). Our Lord warns us in today's Holy Gospel: Not everyone that [ 'prays' ] shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father Who Is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

"Broken Cisterns" (Jer. 2.13) at Vatican II


Feast of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces
(Traditional Carmelite Calendar)

Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace in seasonable aid...[for] in [Her] is all grace of the way and of the truth, in [Her] is all hope of life and of virtue (Heb. 4.16; Ecclus. 24.25).

The Blessed Virgin Mary - Mediatrix of All Graces, the "throne of... all grace of the way and of the truth... all hope of life and of virtue" spurned at Vatican II: "The Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary Sacrificed to Vatican II 'Ecumenism' of Religious Harlotry". For my people have done two evils. They have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and have digged to themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (Jer. 2.13).

A most blessed Feast to everyone!

'Trouble-Maker' Prophet


Feast of the Prophet Elias
Father and Prophet of the Order of the Virgin
Art thou he that troublest Israel? (3 Ki. 18.17)

The Teresian Carmelite Order which was the only one to have been privileged in having its title decorated with the Holy Name of Mary, the "Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel", does not only exude the exquisite sweetness, fragrance, and beauty of the Immaculata but knows also how, like its Venerable Prophet on Mount Carmel, to [stand] up, as a fire, and the Word in them [burning] like torch (Ecclus. 48.1). There were those who reacted against our making ourselves known as the Teresian Carmel or the Discalced Carmelites when we are in no way 'official' - not in 'full' communion with Rome, according to the ridiculous sense [for one is only either with or against the Lord and, as with any defectible human element of the Church, Rome is now found again as when its first Pontiff contradicted the Cross (cf., Mt. 16.22-23) and the Gospel of the Truth (cf., Gal. 2.11-21) - pursuing  even leading the path of "diabolical disorientation" (Our Lady of Fatima) : towards the "one-world religion" of the "New World disOrder" promoted by the tentacles of the Synagogue of Satan (Apocalypse 2.9; 3.9), namely, Freemasonry and Communism; a god of falsehood : source and one-author/'great architect' of self-contradicting conflicting creeds and a new Christ (head and body - his new 'liberal Modernist' Vatican II-'Church') uncrowned and unadored triumphalist Tridentine King of kings and Lord of lords (Apoc. 19.16)] of the propagandists and mere lay 'commentators' of the so-called "NEW 'Catholic THEOlogy'" - and 'critical' of the Popes of Vatican II; now, holding, as with that taunting jest (3 Ki. 18.27) which the great Prophet of Carmel directed against the pseudo-prophets of the devil, that man Bergoglio as possibly the greatest antipope* jerk to have ever laid his impious hands, bedecked with the rainbow-colored flag of those awaiting the recompense God once rained down upon Sodom and Gomorrah (cf., Lk. 17-29-30), on the Chair of St. Peter. Indeed, the Carmel that they know is swept off of what Carmelite is for, following the Vatican of 'ecumenical' "disorientation" into integration with the Masonic "New World Order", it is rubbed off first of what is Catholic [according to the three essential elements that make up the definition of the word] - "to be a Carmelite, one must first of course be Catholic" (Fr. Jerome of the Mother of God, C.D.). On a parenthetical note, it is very amusing how, even in Tradition, whenever an attempt is made to distinguish Carmel from the other Orders, priests and laymen misunderstand what the spirit and charism that is properly Carmelite; as it is written, the great Prophet of Carmel, misunderstood thus: Art thou he that troublest Israel? (3 Ki. 18.17), madest successors after [him] (Ecclus. 48.8).
* Cf., our post Saggitam Electam - I on the "Declaratio" of 'resignation' read by Pope Benedict XVI

"Who am I to judge?"
It is written in the Book of the Apocalypse that the Prophet Elias will return to oppose also the Antichrist to his face - the seventh and last age of the Church who would be reproved and threatened for halt[ing] between (3 Ki. 17.21) the true God and the last neo-god: I would thou wert cold or hot but because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of My mouth (3. 16-17) - so it is with us in this "dress-rehearsal" (Bp. Williamson) for that period of the Antichrist: against the Conciliar Popes who played the dum[b]y High Priest Urias (against whom the great Prophet of Carmel must have first meant God's rebuke: How long do you halt between two sides, 3 Ki. 18.21) who, even exceeding Urias who built altars for the devil at the command of perverted Achaz (cf., 4 Ki. 16.11), themselves presided at the Neo-Catholic Protestantized "tables" to serve, with a sacrilegious simulated Mass (the so-called "New 'Mass'" or the Novus Ordo Missae of evident Anglican flavor), the Neo-Christ and the 'ecumenical' [g]od concocted by their Neo-Catholic school of Teilhard's delusional 'theologism'; and, against the incumbent precursor of the Antichrist "in Pope's slippers" (Padre Pio, who originally referred to Paul VI as a "Freemason in Pope's slippers.") and rainbow colors of the filthy queen of Sodomites - the devil. For there came in my heart as a burning fire, shut up in my bones, and I was wearied, not being able to bear it  (Jer. 20.9). Therefore, with zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel... have thrown down Thy altars! (3 Ki. 19.10)

A blessed Feast to everyone!

To fly the colors of the Immaculata


Feast of the Solemn Commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel

"The Mother of the Lord has clothed us with the garment of salvation
and has enclosed us with the cloak of justice"
(2nd Antiphon, First Vespers)

Our Immaculate Mother of Carmel, as that valiant woman mentioned in the Sacred Writ who makes sure that all her domestics are clothed with two garments in winter time (cf., Pr. 31.21), exquisitely clothes Her children in a two-fold manner in this our militant exile here. She clothes us that we may be 1) preserved in grace - God living in us, we living by Him - and, 2) that we may attain to the glory of that Christian perfection set for us by Our Lord (cf., Lk. 6.40; Mt. 5.48). This is evident in the complete habit of Her Carmelite religious clothed in Her Scapular and in Her white mantle as a cloak of luminous glory resplendent according to Her image Speculum Iustitiae: Speculum Sine Macula ("Mirror of Justice": "Unspotted Mirror" of the Divine Sun).

Through Her Scapular, She would preserve our heart - which the Eucharistic Heart of Her Little Jesus purifies, cures, nourishes, strengthens, and inflames at the Communion rail - from turning away from its first and only love: the true God of our Catholic Tradition Who, before and above all things, is to be loved with our whole mind, heart, soul, and strength (cf., Mk. 12.30). This is preservation not only from utter coldness or apostasy from God but even from lukewarmness (cf. Apoc. 3.15-16: the seventh or last age of the Church of which our age, the fifth one, is already the "dress rehearsal" (Bp. Williamson) or of halting between our true God and the Neo-Catholic [g]od of 'liberalist' convenience and their opposed standards of living (cf., 3 Ki. 18.21). Thus a heart who is conformed more and more to the Heart of our true "Catholic God" through consecration to the Immaculate Heart of our Blessed Mother, of which the Scapular is the sign, glows more and more brightly with the fire of Love Divine in that same liberal-total life giving by Our Beloved Crucified for the honor and glory of God [dishonor, mockery, and profanation of the Sacred in the "New Order"] and the salvation of souls from eternal perdition with the damned in hell ['ecumenical' and this-worldly happiness in the "New"]. This is the spirit She imparts to Her Carmelite religious and through them to the whole Church by means of Her holy habit, the Scapular, but this spirit is already first and foremost Catholic - why our holy Mother Teresa of Jesus had such zealous care for purity of doctrine: unalloyed truth alone leads to the Heart of God, I will espouse thee to Me in Faith (Os. 2.20); whereas, one single minute distortion of the truth leads to the domain of the devil who stood not in the truth (Jn. 8.44).

A most blessed Feast to everyone!

Shrunken but Never and Will Not Ever be Sunken


Feast of Pope St. Leo II

But yet the Son of Man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, 
Faith on earth? (Lk. 18.8)
"[NOT IN ROME] will the dogma of the Faith
[be] always preserved, etc." - The Great Sign in Heaven in Her visitation
at Fatima, Portugal ending the Second Part and introducing
the Third Part of the "Great Secret of Fatima"

From the "Voice" of Catholic Resistance...

Cardinal Pie (1815-1880) was a great churchman of 19th century France, one of the great defenders of the Faith against that liberalism which was eating up the world from the French Revolution (1789) onwards. Pope Pius X kept his works by his bedside and read them constantly. No doubt the Cardinal's profound grasp of the key ideas driving the modern world played a major part in enabling Pius X to obtain a 50-year reprieve, say from 1907 to 1958, for the doomed Catholic Church.

Doomed ? But the Catholic Church cannot be doomed ! True, by God's protection it will last to the end of the world (Mt. XXVIII, 20), but at the same time by God's Word we know that by then the Faith will scarcely be found on earth (Lk. XVIII, 8), and that it will have been given to the forces of evil to defeat the Saints (Apoc. XIII, 7). These are two important quotes to bear in mind in 2014, because everything around us today tells us that the followers of Christ must be prepared for one seeming defeat after another, e.g. the fall of the Society of St Pius X. Here is what Cardinal Pie had to say on the matter, some 150 years ago ! –

“Let us fight, hoping against hope itself, which is what I wish to tell faint-hearted Christians, slaves to popularity, worshippers of success and shaken by the least advance of evil. Given how they feel, please God they will be spared the agonies of the world's final trial. Is that trial close or is it still far off ? Nobody knows, and I will not dare to make a guess. But one thing is certain, namely that the closer we come to the end of the world, the more and more it is wicked and deceitful men who will gain the upper hand. The Faith will hardly be found on earth, meaning that it will almost have disappeared from earthly institutions. Believers themselves will hardly dare to profess their belief in public, or in society.

"The splitting, separating and divorcing of States from God which was for St Paul a sign foretelling the end, will advance day by day. The Church, while remaining always a visible society, will be reduced more and more to dimensions of the individual and the home. When she started out she said she was being shut in, and she called for more room to breathe, but as she approaches her end on earth, so she will have to fight a rearguard action every inch of the way, being surrounded and hemmed in on all sides. The more widely she spread out in previous ages, the greater the effort will now be made to cut her down to size. Finally the Church will undergo what looks like a veritable defeat, and the Beast will be given to make war on the Saints and to overwhelm them. The insolence of evil will be at its peak.”

These are prophetic words, coming truer by the day, not at all pleasant to admit, but anchored in Scripture. A wise Anglican Bishop (Butler) said in the 18th century, "Things are what they are. Their consequences will be what they will be. Why then should we seek to deceive ourselves ?" Notice especially how the Cardinal foresees the impossibility of defending the Faith on any larger scale than just the home. Not everybody agrees that we have already reached that point in 2014. I might wish they were right, but I have yet to be persuaded that with disintegrated people one can make an integrated society. Contrast with us democratic citizens of today the Roman centurion in the Gospel who understood a chain of command and recognized naturally the authority of Our Lord (Mt. VIII, 5-18) -- how Our Lord praised him !

Patience. Next... how the Cardinal himself reacted to what he foresaw. He was no defeatist !
Kyrie eleison.

A Cardinal saw how far the Church must shrink
In these end times, yet never will it sink.

"Saggitam Electam" (II)


Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Lord... hath made my mouth like a sharp sword...
and hath made me as a chosen arrow...
(from the Introit of the Mass for the Feast of St. John the Baptist, Is. 49.1,2)

Why our special need for our Blessed Mother's "Perpetual Succor" (Feast on the 27th of June) today: Sanctity in the truth.

Charity for one's neighbor: his sanctification, 1) not only his deliverance from error and sin but also its remnants and root in him; 2) deliverance and preservation from what leads to sin: the "New World Order" ('Novus Ordo') or the Masonic ILLUSION of an earthly paradise of 'peace, equality, liberty, religious fraternity of one-world religion [being spearheaded by the PSEUDO-Catholicism of Vatican II], and progress' - the evil and corruption of this world, of the flesh, and the subtle snares, schemes, suggestions and deceptions of the devil and the forerunners of the Antichrist: "Dialogue is the only way to peace" ('Pontifex' Bergoglio in, 1st July 2014, Feast of the Most Precious Blood of the Savior); "The New Mass was legitimately promulgated" (Neo-SSPX Superior-General, "Cor Unum" N.104).

The Charity of our "Immaculata" in Her visitation at Fatima: The Great Sign in Heaven warns Her children against following the Vatican of 'ecumenical' "disorientation" in the name of false 'obedience' (even if the Pope, the bishop, or the priest is already personally offending/defecting from the Faith/the Truth) - "[Not in Rome] will the dogma of the Faith [be] always preserved, etc." She does not want us to suffer the fate of the "MANY souls [who] go to hell": Therefore hath hell enlarged her soul, and opened her mouth without any bounds, and THEIR STRONG ONES, AND THEIR PEOPLE, AND THEIR HIGH AND GLORIOUS ONES SHALL GO DOWN INTO IT (Is. 5.14).

A blessed Feast to everyone!

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).
