A friend of mine who lives in Iraq -whom belongs to the Chaldean Rite of the Church – made the image above. It’s valid because of the fact that these Modernists Bishops and Cardinals, like many others, intend to either change Church teachings or water it down. When was the last time you ever heard any of these Cardinals preach upon the dogma of Hell, to repent, and the necessity to convert to the Roman Catholic Church for your salvation if one is outside the Church? Rarely, if ever, therefore they must be resisted since they preach heresy and do not care for souls. This is what we Traditional Catholics have been warning about all along, yet we are identified as “schismatic”.
According to Saint Thomas Aquinas in Summa Theologica II, II, q. 33, a. 4, Sed Contra he states:
“Augustine says in his Rule: ‘Show mercy not only to yourselves, but also to him who, being in the higher position among you, is therefore in greater danger.’ But fraternal correction is a work of mercy. Therefore even prelates ought to be corrected.”
“It must be observed, however, that if the faith were endangered, a subject ought to rebuke his prelate even publicly.” (Summa Theologica II, II, q. 33, a. 45)
Pope Leo XIII comments upon the above quotes of Saint Thomas Aquinas in his encyclical ‘Sapientiae Christianae’:
“But, when necessity compels, not those only who are invested with power of rule are bound to safeguard the integrity of faith, but, as St. Thomas maintains: ‘Each one is under obligation to show forth his faith, either to instruct and encourage others of the faithful, or to repel the attacks of unbelievers.'”
So what do the saints have to say about bad and heretical bishops that reject church teaching?
Blessed Anne Cathrine Emmerich on June 1, 1821 states the following:
“Among the strangest things that I saw, were long processions of bishops. Their thoughts and utterances were made known to me through images issuing from their mouths. Their faults towards religion were shown by external deformities. A few had only a body, with a dark cloud of fog instead of a head. Others had only a head, their bodies and hearts were like thick vapors. Some were lame; others were paralytics; others were asleep or staggering.”
St. John Chrysostom: “The road to hell is paved with the skulls of erring priests, with bishops as their signposts.”
St. John Chrysostom, Extract from St. John Chrysostom, Homily III on Acts 1:12: “I do not think there are many among Bishops that will be saved, but many more that perish.”
St. Athanasius, Council of Nicaea, AD 325:“The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops.”
Scripture states:’Return O ye revolting children … and I will give you pastors according to My own heart’. (Jer. 3:14,15)
Saint John Eudes comments upon this with the following :
“The most evident mark of God’s anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them.”
As we can see, we are given bad prelates as a result of our rebellion against Christ through sin. Let us continue to pray for the conversion of sinners and our Bishops, especially for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
