False religion, religious liberty, Islam, and Catholic combat. 

Blessed First Friday my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. It has been a month since I have posted since it’s very important to give time to God and the duties He gives you in life. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. 

Now let’s cut to the chase. While I was gone we have witnessed chaotic events that have taken place in this world corrupted by sin. From heresy coming from the Hiearchy of Holy Mother Church, to the shootings that slaughtered innocent people, to the construction of satanic temples here in the USA, I would like to emphasize the bombings in Paris from those who practice the demonicly inspired religion of Islam founded by the false prophet Mohammad. 

From what I recall, 60 lives were taken as a result of Islamic attacks upon innocent people. These attacks are done to give praise to the false god “allah” (not to be mistaken with the true Allah, The Blessed Trinity, since Allah translates to God in Arabic, hence the Melkite usage of the term).

We know this cannot be of God since God commands us not to Kill, for this is against the 5th commandment in which is a article of faith and necessary to obey for salvation. Since God does not contradict Himself and make up false doctrines that contradict His nature, such as Jesus supposedly not being God according to Islam: the question is how can we tolerate this false religion? 

In reality, we cannot. This is why we cannot accept the false doctrine of religious liberty, a innovative teaching that many clergymen teach today even though it contradicts dogma and was condemned by the Infallible Magisterium countless times. 

 
For example, Pope Gregory XVI on May 8th, 1844 states the following in his encyclical Inter Praecipuas:

“Experience shows that there is no more direct way of alienating the populace fromfidelity and obedience to their leaders than through that indifference to religionpropagated by the sect members under the name of religious liberty.”

It is a dogma of the faith that indifferentism is a heresy. This is the teaching that all religions are equal and that we must “co exist” since all religions lead to salvation, a infamous teaching especially taught by the Freemasons and Unitarians. 

Pope Gregory XVI condemns this also in Mirari Vos on August 15, 1832:

“Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. 

Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that “there is one God, one faith, one baptism” may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. 

They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that “those who are not with Christ are against Him,” and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore “without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.” Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: “He who is for the See of Peter is for me.”

“A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: “The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?”

It is because of the immoral behavior and false teachings of innovative and infamous men that we cannot tolerate false religion, for nobody has the right to profess heresy, blaspheme God, and worship a false one;For there is only One God, The Blessed Trinity: Father, Son, and The Holy Ghost.

 

St Athanasius of Alexandria – Born: 296 AD, Alexandria, Egypt Died: May 2, 373 AD, Alexandria, Egypt


 The ancient Creed of Athanasius states:
“Whoever wishes to be saved must, above all, keep the Catholic faith.For unless a person keeps this faith whole and entire, he will undoubtedly be lost forever.This is what the Catholic faith teaches: we worship one God in the Trinity and the Trinity in unity.”
It is because that Islam rejects this, with many other doctrines, that it is a false religion. This is why, my dear family in Christ, we cannot accept this notion that all religions lead to God. This is why ecumenism is heresy, for it “uncrowns” Christ the King and The True God. 

So how do we combat Islam in our times? How do we combat heresy? Our Lady has made this known to Saint Dominic that she is the hammer of Heresy. This is why we must say The Rosary, for it is by prayer that demons flee, especially when we call upon her name and God’s Holy Name. Wear your brown scapulars, stay close to the sacraments, and remain in the state of grace. It’s time to suit up.

We mustn’t loose hope.

  
All praise the Thetokos and Our Divine Lord Incarnate, Jesus Christ. In these dark times of apostasy, tragedy, and betrayal from our own hierarchy, we get the tendency to fall into despair. When seeing Holy Mother Church being torn to pieces by wolves, it brings nothing but discouragement and confusion to Her Children. 
Some begin to question if the Catholic Church is the true Church since Christ said that the gates of Hell shall not prevail, yet the actions of the Bishops seem as if all Hell broke loose. 

It is a fact that the gates have not and will not prevail against the Church since Our Lord is not a liar. During the Arian heresy that has infiltrated the entire Church, Saint Athanasius has stated: 
“Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.” 

Christ has selected Judas as his disciple to give that very example of a traitor within Holy Mother Church, and unfortunately we are seeing that within our times by many of the clergy who have abandoned the faith. 
We continue to see Bishops departing from the Catholic faith. We see many bishops falling in apostasy, not to mention the anti Christ desire to change dogma, which is impossible since truth cannot ever change. 
While the ‘conservative’ bishops and Traditional Catholics are being silenced and labeled schismatic by the modernists, we get the impression that we are in a stuck situation that we cannot get out of, similar to that of a young boy that has fallen into a well but cannot find a way out since there isn’t a rope or latter to pull him up out of it. 
My dear brethren in Christ Jesus, we must not loose hope. We must continue to say Our Rosaries every day, stay in sanctifying grace, and pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary since it has not been done validly, confirmed by Sister Lucia herself while the Vatican covered it up with a false interpretation that it has been done, as Pope Benedict XVI admitted himself since he read the third secret.

DEVOTION OF THE FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS: Brief history and information

  July 13, 1917, Our Lady revealed that she would come to ask for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart and for the Communion of Reparation of the Five First Saturdays. As a result, she asked for the devotion in 1925 and the consecration in 1929.

 
While staying at the House of the Dorothean Sister in Pontevedra, Portugal, Sister Lucia received a vision on December 10, 1925 where the Blessed Mother appeared alongside a Boy who stood over a luminous cloud. Our Lady rested one hand on the Boy’s shoulder while she held on the other hand a heart pierced with thorns around it.

Sister Lucia heard the Boy say, “Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother which is covered with thorns with which ingrate men pierce it at every moment with no one to make an act of reparation to pull them out.”

Our Lady expressed her request in the following words,

“See, my daughter, My Heart surrounded with thorns with which ingrates pierce me at every moment with blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at least, make sure to console me and announce that all those who for five months, on the first Saturdays, go to confession, receive Communion, say five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for 15 minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the purpose of making reparation to Me, I promise to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls.” 

A few days afterward, Sister Lucia detailed this vision in a letter addressed to Monsignor Manuel Pereira Lopes, her confessor when she resided in the Asylum of Vilar in the city of Oporto, Portugal.

  
In June 1929, Lucia, already a religious of St. Dorothy, describes the following apparition: Vision of the Trinity

” . . . . suddenly the entire convent Chapel was illuminated in a supernatural light, and a Cross of light appeared over the altar and reached the ceiling. On the superior part the face of man was seen and his body down to the waist. A dove of light was over his chest and nailed to the Cross was another man. Suspended in air over his waist I was able to see a chalice with a large Host. Drops of Blood from the face of Jesus Crucified and His pierced side fell into the the chalice, dripping from the Host. Beneath the right arm on the Cross was Our Lady. It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without thorns or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames. Underneath the left arm on the Cross, big letters, similar to crystal water came down to the altar forming these words: Grace and Mercy.’ ”

Lucia said : “I understood it was the mystery of the Blessed Trinity that was revealed to me, and I perceived inner light about this mystery which I’m unable to reveal. The Blessed Virgin told me: The time has come in which God asks the Holy Father that in union with all the bishops of the world the consecration of Russia to my Heart be made, I promise salvation through this means.’ Preventing diffusion of error and advance its conversion.”

Note: the Consecration has not been done validly. See Link

The elements for the 1st Saturday devotion 

 

1- Confession: Essential for the journey of repentance and conversion. 

2- Eucharist: The first fruit of this devotion is the worship of the Holy Eucharist in three ways: sacrifice, communion, and adoration.

3-Holy Rosary prayer with two aspects: prayer, meditation. Five mysteries are to be prayed.

4- The promise of salvation   
Meditation of the Holy Rosary: 

The vocal prayer of the Rosary has always been fundamentally based on the interior act of meditation on the mysteries of the life, sufferings, and glory of our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The prayer that our Lady requested us to pray after each mystery is : “Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.” In this prayer, we are praying for the conversion and eternal salvation of the souls of sinners. 

These sinners may be very obstinate in their sins, refusing to repent. Some are unknowingly in mortal sin and are at the precipice of death. Finally, there are those who because of circumstances of location or education, are far from the possibility of finding a priest and receiving the sacraments, even in their last moments. 

 The graces and merits from the reparation and prayers of Christians who are united in meditation with the Heart of Mary, Mother and refuge of sinners, are especially for these poor souls “most in need of God’s mercy.”
Promise of Salvation:

To those who practice this devotion of the First Five Saturdays of the Month, Our Lady promised: “I promise to assist them at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation.” She does not promise eternal salvation, but the graces necessary for salvation. 

There are many testimonies from souls particularly devoted to the Heart of Mary who receive knowledge from heaven about the proximity of their hour of death. It is not necessarily an announcement of death, but a new awareness and need to receive the sacraments with more dignity, a purer intention in all their actions, and an intensification of charity and dedication to their apostolate. The Heart of Mary perfects the souls of her children until they reach their decisive encounter with their Divine Savior.

Laus Tibi Christe

  
My sweet and most Holy Adorable Lord, Jesus Christ, have mercy on me; a sinner; who has offended Thee through my own fault, through my own fault, and through my own fault alone. I thank Thee for having spared me and loving me even though I have sinned against Thee countless times throughout my life. I ask that Thou giveth me and all my dear friends, benefactors, enemies, – and all of those that I have come in contact with – the Grace to do Thy Will and to overcome sin and near occasion of sin. Breath fourth The Holy Ghost within our souls, and we shalt have life. Pour fourth thy Precious Blood upon us, and we shalt be made white as snow. Praise Be Thy Holy Name forever and ever. Save souls, especially those approaching death with sin upon theirs. Be merciful oh Sovereign King. All thou Holy Saints in Heaven, pray for us. Amen.

A short reflection on today’s epistle and Gospel

  
 
Today’s epistle, Heb. 9:11-15:

“Brethren: But Christ, being come an high Priest of the good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hand, that is, not of this creation: Neither by the blood of goats or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and of oxen, and the ashes of an heifer, being sprinkled, sanctify such as are defiled, to the cleansing of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who by the Holy Ghost offered himself unspotted unto God, cleanse our conscience from dead works, to serve the living God? And therefore he is the mediator of the new testament: that by means of his death for the redemption of those transgressions which were under the former testament, they that are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance, in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

  
St.Paul tells us that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Pontiff and the Mediator of the New Testament. As the High Priest once entered into the Holy of Holies with the blood of the victims so, in a more excellent manner, Christ enters into Heaven, the true Holy of Holies, after having shed His Own Blood which He offers to God His Father.

  

Today’s Gospel, John 19:30-35:

“At that time, Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: “It is consummated.” And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost. Then the Jews (because it was the parasceve), that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day (for that was a great sabbath day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken: and that they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came: and they broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him.But after they were come to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side: and immediately there came out blood and water. And he that saw it hath given testimony: and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true: that you also may believe.”

The prefiguration of this, in which blood and water flowed from the right side of Our Lord, can be found in Ezekiel 47-1:

“And he brought me again to the gate of the house, and behold waters issued out from under the threshold of the house toward the east: for the forefront, of the house looked toward the east: but the waters came down to the right side of the temple to the south part of the altar”.

Laus Tibi Christe: the prophecy of Our Merciful Lord has been fulfilled in Christ our Redeemer.

The Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ; Octave Day of St. John the Baptist

  
DOUBLE, FIRST CLASS / RED

This feast was instituted only in 1849, but the devotion is as old as Christianity. The early Fathers say that the Church was born from the pierced side of Christ, and that the Sacraments were brought forth through His Blood. The special beauty of this feast is its centering of our attention directly on the Blood of Christ, a short cut to the heart of revelation. In these days we need to think of the Passion of Christ; we do not know how God is going to test us. Devotion to the Precious Blood is a fundamental, sane approach to God. It is hard and painful; it will help us to steel our own hearts against weakness.
INTROIT Apoc. 5:9-10You have redeemed us, O Lord, with Thy Blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us for our God a kingdom.

Ps. 88:2. The mercies of the Lord I will sing forever; my mouth shall proclaim Your truth through all generations.

V. Glory be . . .

 

COLLECT

O Almighty and Eternal God, You willed that the world should be redeemed and the sins of man atoned for by the shedding of the Blood of Your Only-Begotten Son. May we on this solemn feast pay fitting honor to the Precious Blood that was the price of our salvation; may that Blood defend us against the evils of our present life so that we may enjoy its everlasting fruit in heaven. Through our Lord . . .

 

EPISTLE Heb. 9:11-15

Brethren: But Christ, being come an high Priest of the good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hand, that is, not of this creation: Neither by the blood of goats or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and of oxen, and the ashes of an heifer, being sprinkled, sanctify such as are defiled, to the cleansing of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who by the Holy Ghost offered himself unspotted unto God, cleanse our conscience from dead works, to serve the living God? And therefore he is the mediator of the new testament: that by means of his death for the redemption of those transgressions which were under the former testament, they that are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

GRADUAL I John 5:5, 7-8

This is He who came in water and in blood, Jesus Christ: not in the water only, but in the water and in the blood.

V. There are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these Three are One. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the Blood; and these three are one.

 

Alleluia, alleluia! V. John 5:9

If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater. Alleluia!

 

GOSPEL John 19:30-35

At that time, Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: “It is consummated.” And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost. Then the Jews (because it was the parasceve), that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day (for that was a great sabbath day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken: and that they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came: and they broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him.

But after they were come to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side: and immediately there came out blood and water. And he that saw it hath given testimony: and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true: that you also may believe.

 

OFFERTORY ANTIPHON I Cor. 10:16

The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not the sharing of the Blood of Christ? And the bread that we break, is it not the partaking of the Body of the Lord?

 

SECRET 

May these divine mysteries draw us closer to Jesus, the Mediator of the new covenant. We renew upon Your altar, O Lord of Hosts, the sprinkling of the Blood of Christ which is far more efficacious than the sacrifice offered by Abel. Through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord . . .

 

COMMUNION ANTIPHON Heb. 9:28

Christ was offered once to take away the sins of many; the second time with no part in sinHe will appear unto the salvation of those who await Him.

 

POSTCOMMUNION 

We have been admitted to Your sacred banquet, O Lord, and have joyously refreshed ourselves with the waters from the fountain of our Saviour. May His Blood spring up within us as a saving water for eternal life; who lives and rules with You . . .

Stay calm, Christ is in charge.

 We as Catholics know for a fact that Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, has established a visible Church upon Simon Peter; meaning Rock, in order to save souls. (Matt 16:18) Today’s Gospel in the Old Rite states the following:

“And it came to pass, that when the multitudes pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Genesareth, And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And going into one of the ships that was Simon’s, he desired him to draw back a little from the land. And sitting he taught the multitudes out of the ship. Now when he had ceased to speak, he said to Simon: Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.  And Simon answering said to him: Master, we have labored all the night, and have taken nothing: but at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had done this, they enclosed a very great multitude of fishes, and their net broke. And they beckoned to their partners that were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they were almost sinking.  Which when Simon Peter saw, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying: Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was wholly astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken. And so were also James and John the sons of Zebedee, who were Simon’s partners. And Jesus saith to Simon: Fear not: from henceforth thou shalt catch men. And having brought their ships to land, leaving all things, they followed him”. (Luke 5:1-11)

Caution: Jimmy Papist moment ahead! 


Jimmy: “Okay so you read today’s gospel and bolded a couple of sentences, what’s your point?”

 Good question. When we truly examine today’s Gospel we can see that the Church was not any different from how it was in biblical times to how it is today. Why you may ask? The boat of Peter – in which Christ requested to be separated from the land in order to preach to the multitude – in my opinion prefigures the Church that separates itself from the ways of the world in order to preach the gospel to all nations by the guidance of the Holy Ghost.

Since Peter, whom was upon the boat, was instructed to cast the net into the water by the request of our Lord in order to catch fish, later doubting that he would catch any since he fished all night, why should we as the Church militant be surprised that the modernist hiearchy upholds the position in which states that in order to bring people into the Church we must be “pastoral”, thus the watering down of the faith by substituting Catholic truth with modernist innovation?

In addition, we see that when Peter humbly united his will to the Will of God he had caught a massive amount of fish. Since the fish symbolize converts to the Church, we can also conclude that it is because of the truth that souls will truly be converted to the one true faith as long as they cooperate with God’s Grace. 

Even though the Church may seem as if she is crumbling, we must meditate upon Mark 4:37-40: 

“And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that the ship was filled. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, sleeping upon a pillow; and they awake him, and say to him: Master, doth it not concern thee that we perish?  And rising up, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea: Peace, be still. And the wind ceased: and there was made a great calm. And he said to them: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet? And they feared exceedingly: and they said one to another: Who is this (thinkest thou) that both wind and sea obey him?”

In the end, my dear brothers and sisters, Christ is with us and will never abandon us. Let us not be afraid of the great crises the Church is in, for Christ is her head and He alone will calm the storm.

Can Catholic Teaching Change? 

  
The Holy Catholic Church, in which is the bride of Christ, cannot and will not change her teachings since she breaths upon the Holy Spirit; the guardian of Truth. Since the Church teaches what Christ had always taught and has not ever changed her teachings, unlike false religions, we should not expect or petition the Church to “get with the times” since the “progress of dogmas is only the corruption of dogmas” according to Pope Pius X, therefore the condemnation of the heresy of modernism. It would be prudent to listen to the following sermon given by a FSSP priest: Link
