While there is still time.. Repent!

  

It is because of the fall of Adam and Eve that Original Sin has come into the world. When sin came into the world, nature within itself has fallen. Our very human nature itself has become attached to sinful vices that not only contradicts our very obligation to serve God, but offends Him dearly since He has been nothing but merciful and loving like any good Father would.

Whether it be greed, lust, envy, hatred, theft, pride etc: we all have a sinful vice that we need to break from by the Grace of God. It is very necessary to cooperate with God’s Graces and stay in Sanctifying Grace, for we are not guaranteed another breath nor another heart beat. It is nearly impossible to count how many Blessings Our Dear Lord has given us, that being each beat and breath of life that we do not deserve.

Since life on Earth is temporary, we must remember to seek first the Kingdom of God, for attachments to this very world is not only foolish, but deceptive since this world will pass away; whether it is by our own personal death or the return of Our Lord in Glory, we will have no choice but to detach ourselves from it. 

To the parents, priests, and other superiors that view this blog; it is necessary to make sure that your dear children are in the state of grace, whether it be your own as a parent or the souls you are responsible for as a priest. Remember that you are held accountable. 

At baptism, we promise to renounce Satan and to make sure that we raise our children within the Church for their salvation. Priests have a equivalent obligation by the virtue of religion and their vocation. 

This is what Christ means by the Commandments He as God in the Flesh has given to us; “Love thy neighbor as thy self.” How can we say we love somebody -whether it be a friend, spouse, child etc. – when we do not care for their souls? 

How can we truly love ourselves if we are not staying close to the sacraments and praying daily to flee from sin and temptation? 
It is necessary to pray as if it is your very breath, for the soul cannot truly live without it since it depends upon it for the Graces necessary for its salvation.

 It is prudent to flee putting yourself in occasions of sin as if it were the plague, and to never  ever return. Returning would be like returning to your own vomit. When sin comes your way, chastise yourself through prayer and much penance. 

Remember what scripture says my dear friends, “Blessed is he that has the law of God written in his heart. Blessed is He who is tempted and overcomes it.” Christ told the apostles this very request in His Agony in the garden: “Pray that you may not be tempted.”

Some say “well if I sin again I’ll just go to confession. God will understand. I’ll sin now and repent later.” This is the sin of presumption and a very foolish and deceptive view, especially when even some priests encourage it to their very flock by being lukewarm and sugar coated in the confessional. 

Remember that confession is a privilege. Taking advantage of it and misusing it would be blasphemy, such as going just to make fun or hold back sin. We never know when our last confession will be. Heck, the next confession may be your final one. Who knows when we will die. That’s why it’s necessary to repent daily. Stay in the state of grace. Without grace in the soul, one will be damned for eternity.

Why am I telling you guys this? Because I love you all and want to see you in Heaven. Im repeating this because TAB is also a poor sinner. I’m serious. I’m a sinner and the worse of all of them. But it doesn’t mean I cannot encourage my dear brothers and sisters to do better than me, a hypocrite. This is why I beg all of you to not only pray for one another as a family in Christ, but to pray for me.

Remember to pray your rosaries daily and to wear the brown scapular. The daily morning consecration to the Brown Scapular is a pledge of obedience to Our Lady’s promises, which is to wear the brown scapular out of devotion for Sanctifying Grace and Her Immaculate Conception so that the soul shall not perish eternity in the eternal flames of Hell. 

The full promise of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to Saint Simon Stock July 16, 1251

“Accept this Scapular. It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and a pledge of peace. Whosoever dies clothed in this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.”

Note: The promise must be taken in context. It would be heresy to confuse the Scapular with a good luck charm that automatically brings one to Heaven after death. It is true devotion to Our Lady that will keep us in Sanctifying Grace as long as we cooperate with the Graces Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, gives us. 

While we continue to wear our Brown Scalulars that Our Lady has given us as an instrument of Grace through devotion to Her Immaculate Conception, let us remember to pray for the salvation of souls and for those in Purgatory.

Daily adopt a unknown dying soul

It is because of the fall of Adam and Eve that Original Sin has come into the world as a consequence for disobedience to the commands of God. Being that we are human beings with a fallen nature, we are attached to sin. However, it is by God’s Grace that we can avoid sin and near occasions of sin. It is Catholic dogma that the only spotless Humans to be purely immaculate and free of sin are both Our Lord Jesus Christ – being that He is God and cannot contradict His own nature since He is Almighty and Good – and Our Immaculate Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is at the very moment of our death that the devil and his minions tempt the soul to fall into sin so that the soul may descend into Hell for all eternity; therefore loosing all hope for salvation and also loosing the possibility of attaining Eternal Life and the Beatific Vision. “Moreover we define that according to the general disposition of God, the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down into hell immediately after death and there suffer the pain of hell.” (Encyclical “On the Beatific Vision of God” Issued by Pope Benedict XII in 1336).

What a aweful tragedy it is to be tempted, especially at death since the time on earth to save ones soul is absolutely over. The Catholic Church teaches that it is a spiritual work of mercy to pray for souls and their conversion so that they may be saved, especially for the souls in purgatory in whom are already saved but thirst for Heaven since there are not any prayers being said for them. So what can we do to pray for souls at the hour of their death so that they may not be tempted? I invite you to join me in the following prayer. You won’t regret it. Let’s not forget that some day we will die and we will need prayers for us at the hour of our death as well, for we cry out to Our Dearest Lady: “Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”


A Prayer for the Dying and a Special Soul
“O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,

I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,

and by the sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother,

wash clean in Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world

who are to die this day.
Remember most especially the soul I spiritually adopt

with the intention of entrusting him or her to Thy Shepherd’s care:

I beseech Thee for the grace to move this sinner, who is in

danger of going to Hell, to repent. I ask this because of my

trust in Thy great mercy.
If it should please Thy Majesty to send me a suffering this day

in exchange for the grace I ask for this soul, then, it, too,

shall please me very much, and I thank Thee, Most Sweet Jesus,

Shepherd and Lover of Souls; I thank Thee for this

opportunity to give mercy in thanksgiving for all the mercies

Thou hast shown me. Amen.
Heart of Jesus, once in agony, have mercy on the dying. Amen”

Let us all keep each other in prayer for salvation. The way is very narrow to Heaven, however, the way to Hell is very wide. Pray for me as well, dear friends, for the TAB is also a sinner. God Bless You!

The weapon against Heresy And Sin: The Most Holy Rosary

Being that we live in dark times in which the errors of Russia have and continue to spread throughout the world and the Church as predicted by Our Lady of Fatima, causing apostasy and schism, it is important to recite the prayers of the most Holy Rosary daily in which was given by Our Immaculate Mother Mary, Theotokos; Mother of God Incarnate so that we do not become deceived and fall into Mortal Sin (God Forbid). 

We as Roman Catholics have to remember that the 15 promises of Our Lady to Saint Dominic and to those who recite the Most Holy Rosary daily with devotion will always be in affect since the aid of those in Heaven will never deceive nor lie to the flock, that being the Church. 

“The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.”

This promise that I am emphasizing, my dear friends, is a message of Hope. It is by prayer and God’s grace that we can convert the modernists within Holy Mother Church. Let us continue to do just that and even encourage heretics to do the same for their own salvation since it is dogma that there is no salvation outside the true faith. So remember, for the love of Jesus Christ and His Church: pray, pray, pray.

Was the post on the LMS an “over reaction”?

Recently a couple of priests upon Facebook and their supporters stated that my post was “an over reaction”. My only question is this, how do they defend the Latin Mass society’s 20th commandment? It states the following:

“Thou Shalt Obey and Honor All Superiors Even If the Head is Lucifer”

  

 

This is Satanic, idolatrous, and blasphemous. If my previous post was – as they stated – “An overreaction” then they must explain that very quote. Is it because these people – in whom are probably modernists themselves – do not believe in the devil themselves? God forbid. 

A fellow brother in Christ has also pointed out that the courting video that I will share below has actually played music from the artist, Janis Joplin, the same artist in whom stated 

“On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people, then I go home alone.” 

Video Link

Is this a good example of chastity and purity as LMS has tried to display within their video? I don’t think so. 

Please say a rosary, a Saint Michael’s Chaplet, and 3 Hail Mary’s for this dear brother and those who work with him. Unfortunately, those within this group are deceived.

The reality of Hell and it’s eternity

  
One of the many controversial topics in which people in our times tend to avoid is the reality on the existence of Hell and it’s eternity. Since we are now living in dark times and the faith is often challenged by the secular world and even Catholic clerics themselves – in which we are to resist since they are harmful to souls – I will initiate this essay with the following quote from the Holy Gospel – the infallible and inerrant Word of God:

“But the cowards, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” – Rev 21:8

Recently I have been in a dialogue with a brother Catholic upon the existence of Hell and it’s eternity. In response to my post upon the USCCB and Pope Francis appointing Father Barron a Bishop of the Church, he argued it was not heresy to state that Hell is empty and that Catholics have the option to state otherwise. 
  
Let’s just say that this were true. If this were the case then what was Christ and the apostles preaching about if the Gospel is centered around salvation? Theologians would argue that 95% of the Gospel is based upon the reality of Hell and the necessity to repent to avoid going there. In fact, what have the councils of the Church spoken about when it declared that Hell was eternal and very real in its nature, especially upon the Last Day?

Saint Alphonsus Ligouri use to say: 
” “Many shall come from the East and the West, and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. But the Children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into the Exterior Darkness: there shall be Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth”. By these words Our Lord Wished to-Signify, that many Persons born-in Infidelity shall be Saved, and Enjoy the Society of the Saints; and that many who are born-in the Bosom-of the Church, shall be cast-into Hell, where the Worm of Conscience, by its Gnawing, shall make them Weep Bitterly for all Eternity.”

Being that Catholics are bound to accept dogma, the Catechism of the Council of Trent, which holds authority for all time by the declaration of its introduction, states the following:
“These abodes (Limbo, Purgatory, and Hell) 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.” 
The Church infallibly teaches that souls who die in mortal sin will descend into Hell for all eternity. This is a Dogma of the faith.

“Moreover we define that according to the general disposition of God, the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down into hell immediately (mox) after death and there suffer the pain of hell.”Encyclical “On the Beatific Vision of God” Issued by Pope Benedict XII in 1336

Catechism of Trent:
“For whoever offends God, even by one mortal sin, instantly forfeits whatever merits he may have previously acquired through the sufferings and death of Christ, and is entirely shut out from the gate of heaven which, when already closed, was thrown open to all by the Redeemer’s Passion. When we reflect on this, the thought of our misery must fill us with deep anxiety. But if we turn our attention to this admirable power with which God has invested His Church; and, in the firm belief of this Article, feel convinced that to every sinner is offered the means of recovering, with the assistance of divine grace, his former dignity, we must exult with exceeding joy and gladness, and must offer immortal thanks to God.”

1 Cor 6, 9-10: ” Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.”

All of Holy Scripture unequivocally affirms that not all men are saved, but that some of them are lost by their own fault and will suffer eternal punishment. It is quite sufficient here simply to recall the Last Judgment mentioned in Mt. 25:31ff., and especially from v .41 :

And when the Son of man shall come in His majesty…and all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another…and He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left. Then shall the king say to them that shall be on His right hand: Come ye blessed of my Father….Then He shall say to them also that shall be on His left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels …and these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting.

And, in the same vein, in Jn. 5:28-29:
For the hour cometh, wherein all that are in the graves shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that have done good things, shall come forth unto the resurrection of life; but they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment (i.e., condemnation).
And in the Old Testament, we need only to refer to Daniel (12:2)..:
…and those that sleep in the dust of the earth, shall awake; some unto life everlasting, and others unto reproach, to see it always.
And thus it is throughout the Sacred Scriptures, both in the New as well as the Old Testament.

Against the Pelagians and semi-Pelagians, who (as some of today’s modernists) reduced God down to the level of a simple spectator of man’s salvation or perdition, St. Augustine and his disciples have already defended predestination as a traditional teaching of the Catholic Faith:

The Church has always had faith in this truth of predestination, a faith which nowadays she defends with a renewed solicitude against the new heretics (St. Augustine, De dono perseverantiae, 23, 65).

 The First Constitution of the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215 at the very least alludes to the fact that folks then living in AD 1215 would be in hell. This was the opening statement of the Council and its “Profession of the Faith.” The implication is that people from every generation would finally be eternally separated from God, not just people from the 13th century. But, at the very least, for the strict interpreter of the words of the Council, it seems inescapable that the Council taught souls are in hell now:

Indeed, having suffered and died on the wood of the cross for the salvation of the human race, he descended to the underworld, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. He descended in the soul, rose in the flesh, and ascended in both. He will come at the end of time to judge the living and the dead, to render to every person according to his works, both to the reprobate and to the elect. All of them will rise with their own bodies, which they now wear, (Latin text reads quae nunc gestant—which they are now bearing or wearing) so as to receive according to their deserts, whether these be good or bad; for the latter perpetual punishment with the devil, for the former eternal glory with Christ.

The present tense indicates that some folks then living—now wearing their bodies—would go to hell. Thus, the Church is here teaching there are souls “in” hell.

  
So in conclusion: the thought that Hell might be empty and that it be so, is to fly in the face of divine Revelation and to declare, also, the entire Church to be in error for two thousand years, hence its heretical since it involves the intention to progress dogmas, something Pius X condemned in pescendi. “To the laws of evolution everything is subject under penalty of death — dogma, Church, worship, the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself.” 

The early church fathers ,who were disciples of the apostles and defenders of Sacred Tradition, taught the reality of Hell and it’s eternity for sinners.

Saint Ignatius of Antioch

“Corrupters of families will not inherit the kingdom of God. And if they who do these things according to the flesh suffer death, how much more if a man corrupt by evil teaching the faith of God for the sake of which Jesus Christ was crucified? A man become so foul will depart into unquenchable fire: and so will anyone who listens to him” (Letter to the Ephesians 16:1–2 [A.D. 110]). 
 
Second Clement
“If we do the will of Christ, we shall obtain rest; but if not, if we neglect his commandments, nothing will rescue us from eternal punishment” (Second Clement 5:5 [A.D. 150]). 
“But when they see how those who have sinned and who have denied Jesus by their words or by their deeds are punished with terrible torture in unquenchable fire, the righteous, who have done good, and who have endured tortures and have hated the luxuries of life, will give glory to their God saying, ‘There shall be hope for him that has served God with all his heart!’” (ibid., 17:7). 
 
Justin Martyr
“No more is it possible for the evildoer, the avaricious, and the treacherous to hide from God than it is for the virtuous. Every man will receive the eternal punishment or reward which his actions deserve. Indeed, if all men recognized this, no one would choose evil even for a short time, knowing that he would incur the eternal sentence of fire. On the contrary, he would take every means to control himself and to adorn himself in virtue, so that he might obtain the good gifts of God and escape the punishments” (First Apology 12 [A.D. 151]). 
“We have been taught that only they may aim at immortality who have lived a holy and virtuous life near to God. We believe that they who live wickedly and do not repent will be punished in everlasting fire” (ibid., 21). 
“[Jesus] shall come from the heavens in glory with his angelic host, when he shall raise the bodies of all the men who ever lived. Then he will clothe the worthy in immortality; but the wicked, clothed in eternal sensibility, he will commit to the eternal fire, along with the evil demons” (ibid., 52). 
 
The Martyrdom of Polycarp
“Fixing their minds on the grace of Christ, [the martyrs] despised worldly tortures and purchased eternal life with but a single hour. To them, the fire of their cruel torturers was cold. They kept before their eyes their escape from the eternal and unquenchable fire” (Martyrdom of Polycarp 2:3 [A.D. 155]). 
 
Mathetes
“When you know what is the true life, that of heaven; when you despise the merely apparent death, which is temporal; when you fear the death which is real, and which is reserved for those who will be condemned to the everlasting fire, the fire which will punish even to the end those who are delivered to it, then you will condemn the deceit and error of the world” (Letter to Diognetus 10:7 [A.D. 160]). 
 
Athenagoras
“[W]e [Christians] are persuaded that when we are removed from this present life we shall live another life, better than the present one. . . . Then we shall abide near God and with God, changeless and free from suffering in the soul . . . or if we fall with the rest [of mankind], a worse one and in fire; for God has not made us as sheep or beasts of burden, a mere incidental work, that we should perish and be annihilated” (Plea for the Christians 31 [A.D. 177]). 
 
Theophilus of Antioch
“Give studious attention to the prophetic writings [the Bible] and they will lead you on a clearer path to escape the eternal punishments and to obtain the eternal good things of God. . . . [God] will examine everything and will judge justly, granting recompense to each according to merit. To those who seek immortality by the patient exercise of good works, he will give everlasting life, joy, peace, rest, and all good things. . . . For the unbelievers and for the contemptuous, and for those who do not submit to the truth but assent to iniquity, when they have been involved in adulteries, and fornications, and homosexualities, and avarice, and in lawless idolatries, there will be wrath and indignation, tribulation and anguish; and in the end, such men as these will be detained in everlasting fire” (To Autolycus 1:14 [A.D. 181]). 
 
Irenaeus
“[God will] send the spiritual forces of wickedness, and the angels who transgressed and became apostates, and the impious, unjust, lawless, and b.asphemous among men into everlasting fire” (Against Heresies 1:10:1 [A.D. 189]). 
“The penalty increases for those who do not believe the Word of God and despise his coming. . . . [I]t is not merely temporal, but eternal. To whomsoever the Lord shall say, ‘Depart from me, accursed ones, into the everlasting fire,’ they will be damned forever” (ibid., 4:28:2). 
 
Tertullian
“After the present age is ended he will judge his worshipers for a reward of eternal life and the godless for a fire equally perpetual and unending” (Apology 18:3 [A.D. 197]). 
“Then will the entire race of men be restored to receive its just deserts according to what it has merited in this period of good and evil, and thereafter to have these paid out in an immeasurable and unending eternity. Then there will be neither death again nor resurrection again, but we shall be always the same as we are now, without changing. The worshipers of God shall always be with God, clothed in the proper substance of eternity. But the godless and those who have not turned wholly to God will be punished in fire equally unending, and they shall have from the very nature of this fire, divine as it were, a supply of incorruptibility” (ibid., 44:12–13). 
 
Hippolytus
“Standing before [Christ’s] judgment, all of them, men, angels, and demons, crying out in one voice, shall say: ‘Just is your judgment!’ And the righteousness of that cry will be apparent in the recompense made to each. To those who have done well, everlasting enjoyment shall be given; while to the lovers of evil shall be given eternal punishment. The unquenchable and unending fire awaits these latter, and a certain fiery worm which does not die and which does not waste the body but continually bursts forth from the body with unceasing pain. No sleep will give them rest; no night will soothe them; no death will deliver them from punishment; no appeal of interceding friends will profit them” (Against the Greeks 3 [A.D. 212]). 
 
Minucius Felix
“I am not ignorant of the fact that many, in the consciousness of what they deserve, would rather hope than actually believe that there is nothing for them after death. They would prefer to be annihilated rather than be restored for punishment. . . . Nor is there either measure nor end to these torments. That clever fire burns the limbs and restores them, wears them away and yet sustains them, just as fiery thunderbolts strike bodies but do not consume them” (Octavius 34:12–5:3 [A.D. 226]). 
 
Cyprian of Carthage
“An ever-burning Gehenna and the punishment of being devoured by living flames will consume the condemned; nor will there be any way in which the tormented can ever have respite or be at an end. Souls along with their bodies will be preserved for suffering in unlimited agonies. . . . The grief at punishment will then be without the fruit of repentance; weeping will be useless, and prayer ineffectual. Too late will they believe in eternal punishment, who would not believe in eternal life” (To Demetrian 24 [A.D. 252]). 
 
Lactantius
“[T]he sacred writings inform us in what manner the wicked are to undergo punishment. For because they have committed sins in their bodies, they will again be clothed with flesh, that they may make atonement in their bodies; and yet it will not be that flesh with which God clothed man, like this our earthly body, but indestructible, and abiding forever, that it may be able to hold out against tortures and everlasting fire, the nature of which is different from this fire of ours, which we use for the necessary purposes of life, and which is extinguished unless it be sustained by the fuel of some material. But that divine fire always lives by itself, and flourishes without any nourishment. . . . The same divine fire, therefore, with one and the same force and power, will both burn the wicked and will form them again, and will replace as much as it shall consume of their bodies, and will supply itself with eternal nourishment. . . . Thus, without any wasting of bodies, which regain their substance, it will only burn and affect them with a sense of pain. But when [God] shall have judged the righteous, he will also try them with fire” (Divine Institutes 7:21 [A.D. 307]). 
 
Cyril of Jerusalem
“We shall be raised therefore, all with our bodies eternal, but not all with bodies alike: for if a man is righteous, he will receive a heavenly body, that he may be able worthily to hold converse with angels; but if a man is a sinner, he shall receive an eternal body, fitted to endure the penalties of sins, that he may burn eternally in fire, nor ever be consumed. And righteously will God assign this portion to either company; for we do nothing without the body. We b.aspheme with the mouth, and with the mouth we pray. With the body we commit fornication, and with the body we keep chastity. With the hand we rob, and by the hand we bestow alms; and the rest in like manner. Since then the body has been our minister in all things, it shall also share with us in the future the fruits of the past” (Catechetical Lectures 18:19 [A.D. 350]).

So how do we avoid Hell? The Church teaches that one must die in sanctifying grace: therefore – no mortal sin on your soul period. Mortal sin is removed through both baptism and confession. If one is not baptized, their mortal sins will be cleansed off of their soul at baptism as new creations of God. If mortal sin is upon the soul of any person that is baptized, they must remove it at confession. If reaching confession is impossible, say living in a third world country in which there are not any priests of the Catholic Church, one must make a sincere act of contrition to sin no more and to do penance and ask God for the graces to overcome sin and send a good and holy priest. On this journey of growing in holiness, let us all keep each other in our prayers so that we may all enter the narrow gate and unite with Our Lord forever in the Beatific Vision.

The USCCB and the “insults” upon Father Barron. 

 So the USCCB rejected to respond to my concerns. What concerns you might say? Well.. The very fact that Father Barron, the priest who believes that Hell is almost empty and that nobody really goes there, is being appointed a Bishop. I simply asked how does one  who rejects dogma: – therefore a heretic – get the pass and the right to become a ordained Shepard of the Church? Wouldn’t this harm souls? I think so. Even though they removed my previous comments, take a look at the conversation below in which a remnant remained upon the page until I was banned. 

  

  

Wait for it.. Wait for it.. (Banned from speaking further). 

 

The Catechism of Trent states: 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.” 

What I do not get is how those within the Concilliar hierarchy always emphasize upon a “new evangelization” that was called for by Pope John Paul II, yet In his 1994 book, ‘Crossing the Threshold of Hope’, Pope John Paul II wrote that too often “preachers, catechists, teachers no longer have the courage to preach the threat of hell” (p. 183). 

If our job as Catholics isn’t to preach the Gospel to all nations so we can announce the truth for their salvation and give them the sacraments, then what is it, Barron & USCCB?  Even the new Catechism states:

“”The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, ‘eternal fire.’ The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs” (1035).

The Concilliar Clergy and Catholic Truth

  
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.”

He continues: 

“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.
