King Solomon vs the Extraordinary Synod on the Family

 

Firstly, the Commandments of God handed to St. Moses the Prophet are mandatory for salvation and are dogmatic. 

 The Council of Trent Session 6, Chapter 6: “But no one, how much soever justified, ought to think himself exempt from the observance of the commandments; no one ought to make use of that rash saying, one prohibited by the Fathers under an anathema,-that the observance of the commandments of God is impossible for one that is justified“.

The Sacred Council continues in CANON XVIII.- “If any one saith, that the commandments of God are, even for one that is justified and constituted in grace, impossible to keep; let him be anathema.”

CANON XIX.-“If any one saith, that nothing besides faith is commanded in the Gospel; that other things are indifferent, neither commanded nor prohibited, but free; or, that the ten commandments nowise appertain to Christians; let him be anathema.”

We have witnessed that the majority of the bishops at last years synod were in favor of divorce and remarriage, even though it is against Roman Catholic dogma and the infallible scriptures.

The Roman Catholic Church teaches that divorce and remarriage is a mortal sin in which puts one outside the Church, and if not repented, into Hell for all eternity. The 6th Commandment of Our Lord States “Thy Shall Not Commit Adultery”. He continues in Matthew 19 – 9:“And I tell you that he who puts away his wife, not for any unfaithfulness of hers, and so marries another, commits adultery; and he too commits adultery, who marries her after she has been put away.” 

 

The rationalist who stated that:”We need not to take the so called “Nature miricles” (of Christ) as historic” -that being Cardinal Kasper – stated that scripture needs to be re examined.. as if the Church was wrong for 2000 years until the ‘infallible’ modernist heretic Cardinal Kasper came to the rescue. The book of Proverbs 6:12 makes it known that  “A man that is an apostate, an unprofitable man, walketh with a perverse mouth“. 

Being that we live in dark times in where Christ’s doctrine is being challenged by the enemies of the Church, even within – that being the heretics, schismatics, freemasons, infidels, apostates etc -let us examine the scriptures written by King Solomon, son of the Prophet David, in whom the Holy Ghost Spoke Through.

 

The Sacred Book of Proverbs Chapter 6:20 – Chapter 7 state the following:

“My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. 

21 – Bind them in thy heart continually, and put them about thy neck.

22 – When thou walkest, let them go with thee: when thou sleepest, let them keep thee; and when thou awakest, talk with them.

23 – Because the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light, and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

24 – That they may keep thee from the evil woman, and from the flattering tongue of the stranger. 

25 – Let not thy heart covet her beauty, be not caught with her winks: (Subjectively speaking, I believe this can also refer to the false doctrines of the harlot, that being the counterfeit church that is founded upon freemasonry in which intends to destroy the Catholic Church by its demonic doctrines).

26 – For the price of a harlot is scarce one loaf: but the woman catcheth the precious soul of a man.

27 – Can a man hide fire in his bosom, and his garments not burn? 

28 – Or can he walk upon hot coals, and his feet not be burnt? 

29 – So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife, shall not be clean when he shall touch her.

30 – The fault is not so great when a man hath stolen: for he stealeth to fill his hungry soul:

31 – And if he be taken he shall restore sevenfold, and shall give up all the substance of his house.

32 – But he that is an adulterer, for the folly of his heart shall destroy his own soul: 

33 – He gathereth to himself shame and dishonour, and his reproach shall not be blotted out:

34 – Because the jealousy and rage of the husband will not spare in the day of revenge,

35 – Nor will he yield to any man’s prayers, nor will he accept for satisfaction ever so many gifts.”

The Holy Spirit continues speaking through Saint Solomon in Proverbs Chapter 7: 

1 – My son, keep my words, and lay up my precepts with thee. Son,

2 – Keep my commandments, and thou shalt live: and my law as the apple of thy eye:

3 – Bind it upon thy fingers, write it upon the tables of thy heart.

4 – Say to wisdom: Thou art my sister: and call prudence thy friend,

5 – That she may keep thee from the woman that is not thine, and from the stranger who sweeteneth her words. 

6 – For I look out of the window of my house through the lattice,

7 – And I see little ones, I behold a foolish young man,

8 – Who passeth through the street by the corner, and goeth nigh the way of her house.

9 – In the dark, when it grows late, in the darkness and obscurity of the night,

10 – And behold a woman meeteth him in harlot’s attire prepared to deceive souls; talkative and wandering,

11 – Not bearing to be quiet, not able to abide still at home,

12 – Now abroad, now in the streets, now lying in wait near the corners.

13 – And catching the young man, she kisseth him, and with an impudent face, flattereth, saying:

14 – I vowed victims for prosperity, this day I have paid my vows.

15 – Therefore I am come out to meet thee, desirous to see thee, and I have found thee.

16 – I have woven my bed with cords, I have covered it with painted tapestry, brought from Egypt.

17 – I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

18 – Come, let us be inebriated with the breasts, and let us enjoy the desired embraces, till the day appear.

19 – For my husband is not at home, he is gone a very long journey.

20 – He took with him a bag of money: he mill return home the day of the full moon.

21 – She entangled him with many words, and drew him away with the flattery of her lips.

22 – Immediately he followeth her as an ox led to be a victim, and as a lamb playing the wanton, and not knowing that he is drawn like a fool to bonds,

23 – Till the arrow pierce his liver: as if a bird should make haste to the snare, and knoweth not that his life is in danger.

24 – Now therefore, my son, hear me, and attend to the words of my mouth. 

25 – Let not thy mind be drawn away in her ways: neither be thou deceived with her paths. 

26 – For she hath cast down many wounded, and the strongest have been slain by her. 

27 – Her house is the way to hell, reaching even to the inner chambers of death.

The schismatic Eastern Orthodox Church and the Dogma of Purgatory

Among many teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic & Apostolic Church; the Church’s dogma on Purgatory is what keeps our dear brothers in the Schismatic East separated. While they believe that prayers for the dead benefit the departed souls in some fashion: they refuse to accept the dogma of a ‘purification’ after death for those who died in sanctifying grace because they claim that it cannot be found in apostolic and sacred Tradition – later claiming it is a man made teaching and therefore a innovation and a heresy.

While I will not engage in theological disputes in this article, I want our dear brethren to acknowledge something; that being the book ‘Elder Hadji-Georgis The Athonite’  by a author they identify as “Saint Paisios” – in whom was a monk of Mount Athos. In the section titled ‘Three hours in Hell’ it states:

“Once, a man was ill lost his patience and cried out to the Lord asking to be relieved from his terrible pains. An angel then appeared and told him:

” The All – Merciful God had heard your prayer and will grant your petition, but under one condition. Instead of one year with torments on earth by which every man is cleansed from sin like gold in fire, you will agree to spend three hours in Hell. Because your soul needs to be cleansed with the trials of illness, normally you would have to endure sickness for another year. Since this seems difficult for you, think of what hell means where all sinners go. For this reason try it if you wish for three hours only, and them with the prayers of the Holy Church you will be saved.”

My only question is this: does this not sound like Purgatory considering the fact that Purgatory is the abode in which cleanses imperfect souls? Not to mention that it is in the same location as Hell according to the Catechism of Trent.

Section ‘Different Abodes Called Hell’:

“These abodes are not all of the same nature, for among them is that most loathsome and dark prison in which the souls of the damned are tormented with the unclean spirits in eternal and inextinguishable fire. This place is called gehenna, the bottomless pit, and is hell strictly so-called.

Among them is also the fire of purgatory, in which the souls of just men are cleansed by a temporary punishment, in order to be admitted into their eternal country, into which nothing defiled entereth. The truth of this doctrine, founded, as holy Councils declare,’ on Scripture, and confirmed by Apostolic tradition, demands exposition from the pastor, all the more diligent and frequent, because we live in times when men endure not sound doctrine.

Lastly, the third kind of abode is that into which the souls of the just before the coming of Christ the Lord, were received, and where, without experiencing any sort of pain, but supported by the blessed hope of redemption, they enjoyed peaceful repose. To liberate these holy souls, who, in the bosom of Abraham were expecting the Saviour, Christ the Lord descended into hell.”

The Council of Florence defines purgatory as the following:

“If they have died repentant for their sins and having love of God, but have not made satisfaction for things they have done or omitted by fruits worthy of penance, then their souls, after death, are cleansed by the punishment of Purgatory; also . . . the suffrages of the faithful still living are efficacious in bringing them relief from such punishment, namely the Sacrifice of the Mass, prayers and almsgiving and other works of piety which, in accordance with the designation of the Church, are customarily offered by the faithful for each other.”

So the question remains; why identify us Catholics as heretics when the description your ‘saint’ gives identical description of what Purgatory is in the first place?

The Novus Ordo, Americanism, and The Council of Trent

IMG_9625-1

Before I am labeled as a “Schismatic, Pharisee, a know it all, a sedevacantist etc.” as I was from the Liberals within the Catholic blogosphere and other social media websites I would like to ask you to consider the following questions:

  1. Is the Novus Ordo Mass a rite of the Catholic Church, yes or no?
  2. Did the Pope have the authority to compile a new rite?
  3. Is the Novus Ordo Mass in continuation with Apostolic Tradition?

After reading these three questions in which I have appointed above one may argue ‘yes’ for all three, and that’s fine. However, I would like to ask the fellow reader to consider the following points that I will make by referencing the statements of the Popes (be it infallible or subjective), the Saints, and the canons of the Councils of the Church. So let’s get started!

The Second Vatican Council in the document ‘Sacrosanctum Concilium’ paragraph 1 states the following:“This sacred Council has several aims in view: it desires to impart an ever increasing vigor to the Christian life of the faithful; to adapt more suitably to the needs of our own times those institutions which are subject to change; to foster whatever can promote union among all who believe in Christ; to strengthen whatever can help to call the whole of mankind into the household of the Church. The Council therefore sees particularly cogent reasons for undertaking the reform and promotion of the liturgy.”As we examine this specific canon of Sacrosanctum Concilium we must determine if this is continuing with apostolic Tradition or if it is giving flexibility to the evolution of worship and indifferentism. We sadly would have to assume the latter since not only does this statement state “to adapt more suitably to the needs of our own times” but it continues with “to foster whatever can promote union among all who believe in Christ” following with “The council therefore sees particularly cogent reasons for undertaking the reform and promotion of the liturgy”.

The issue with this is that not only does this insist we change the liturgy in order to get with the times, it insists that we change it in order to “promote union among all who believe in Christ” which is heretical since:

  1. The Catholic Church is the sacrament of unity since She alone is the Kingdom of God upon Earth as a result of being Christ’s Holy Bride.
  2. This insists that we must change the liturgy in order to please heretics, such as the Protestants, in order that they may come into the Church as a result of having a liturgy that suits them;therefore the protestant elements of the Novus Ordo Mass which is identical to a Lutheran Liturgy.

If we as Catholics uphold such an absurd position in which insists that we must change the Church’s liturgy in order to get with the times and to please the Protestants to “promote unity”, then we must argue against the statements of the Pre Vatican 2 Magisterium.

Pope Pius X, Pescendi Dominici Gregis, Excerpt 26:

“To conclude this whole question of faith and its various branches, we have still to consider, Venerable Brethren, what the Modernists have to say about the development of the one and the other. First of all they lay down the general principle that in a living religion everything is subject to change, and must in fact be changed. In this way they pass to what is practically their principal doctrine, namely, evolution. To the laws of evolution everything is subject under penalty of death — dogma, Church, worship (emphasis added), the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself”.

Pope Leo XIII addressing the Americanism heresy his encyclical Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae:

“The underlying principle of these new opinions is that, in order to more easily attract those who differ from her, the Church should shape her teachings more in accord with the spirit of the age and relax some of her ancient severity and make some concessions to new opinions”.

One may argue that the above quote of Pope Leo XIII is not upon the Liturgy itself, however, is not the liturgy the center of our Catholic faith since it is because of the liturgy (when celebrated validly and in accordance with the rubrics approved by the Church) that the Eucharist becomes the Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, therefore touching upon the dogma of transubstantiation? Does not initiating protestant worship within the liturgy cause innovations and challenges to the real presence, the prayers for the souls in purgatory etc., therefore the removal of prayers within the Novus Ordo rite itself? Is not Saint Thomas Aquinas’ “Lex Oriendi, Lex Credendi” still in effect?

Pope Leo XIII on Christian unity:

“But the true church is one, as by unity of doctrine, so by unity of government, and she is catholic also. Since God has placed the center and foundation of unity in the chair of Blessed Peter, she is rightly called the Roman Church, for “where Peter is, there is the church.” Wherefore, if anybody wishes to be considered a real Catholic, he ought to be able to say from his heart the selfsame words which Jerome addressed to Pope Damasus: “I, acknowledging no other leader than Christ, am bound in fellowship with Your Holiness; that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that the church was built upon him as its rock, and that whosoever gathereth not with you, scattereth.”

Since Protestants do not unite with the Church due to heretical doctrines that were invented by heretical founders, how can we promote such a unity with all “Believers in Christ” if they oppose Dogma? How is it that we can now construct new rites when the Sacred Infallible Councils opposed such an idea?

The Council of Trent in Session 7 Canon 13 states: “If any one saith, that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administration of the sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by every pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema”.

Pope Pius V, the Pope in charge of the council of Trent after the death of Pope Paul III, repeated this in his encyclical Quo Primum:

“We specifically command each and every patriarch, administrator, and all other persons or whatever ecclesiastical dignity they may be, be they even cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, or possessed of any other rank or pre-eminence, and We order them in virtue of holy obedience to chant or to read the Mass according to the rite and manner and norm herewith laid down by Us and, hereafter, to discontinue and completely discard all other rubrics and rites of other missals, however ancient, which they have customarily followed; and they must not in celebrating Mass presume to introduce any ceremonies or recite any prayers other than those contained in this Missal.

Furthermore, by these presents [this law], in virtue of Our Apostolic authority, We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us. We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its full force notwithstanding the previous constitutions and decrees of the Holy See, as well as any general or special constitutions or edicts of provincial or synodal councils, and notwithstanding the practice and custom of the aforesaid churches, established by long and immemorial prescription – except, however, if more than two hundred years’ standing”. (Note – The Novus Ordo is 46 years old since its 2015)

Pope Paul VI was very familiar with this canon and infallible encyclical. This is why on April 3,1969 he stated  “The Missale Romanum was promulgated in 1570 by our predecessor St. Pius V, in execution of the decree of the Council of Trent”: therefore the exact reason why he did not codify it for the Church since he knew that he would put himself in ipso facto schism.

Since this is binding for all time upon pastors, including the Pope since he is a pastor of the Church as the Vicar of Christ, Primate of Italy, the Patriarch of the West, and visible head of the Church, how can we conclude that the novus ordo mass is from the Church herself when it was constructed by 6 protestant ministers and the proven to be freemason, Archbishop Bugini, who repeated that it was his intention to remove the prayers of the Church in order to please the protestants? He insisted that “We must strip from our Catholic prayers and from the Catholic liturgy everything which can be the shadow of a stumbling block for our separated brethren that is for the Prostestants.” – Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, main author of the New Mass, L’Osservatore Romano, March 19, 1969

Jimmy Papist Moment –‘But Didn’t Pope Paul VI suggest that Latin be used?

IMG_9150

I think you are over reacting!’Actually, Jimmy, he said the contrary to the general audience on November 26, 1969 when he said “It is here that the greatest newness is going to be noticed, the newness of language. No longer Latin, but the spoken language will be the principal language of the Mass. The introduction of the vernacular will certainly be a great sacrifice for those who know the beauty, the power and the expressive sacrality of Latin”
