Saint Francis de Sales on the Purification of the Soul from Mortal Sin

  
“THE first purification to be made is from sin;—the means whereby to make it, the sacrament of penance. Seek the best confessor within your reach, use one of the many little books written in order to help the examination of conscience. Read some such book carefully, examining point by point wherein you have sinned, from the first use of your reason to the present time. And if you mistrust your memory, write down the result of your examination. 

Having thus sought out the evil spots in your conscience, strive to detest them, and to reject them with the greatest abhorrence and contrition of which your heart is capable;—bearing in mind these four things:—that by sin you have lost God’s Grace, rejected your share in Paradise, accepted the pains of Hell, and renounced God’s Eternal Love. You see, my child, that I am now speaking of a general confession of your whole life, which, while I grant it is not always necessary, I yet believe will be found most helpful in the beginning of your pursuit after holiness, and therefore I earnestly advise you to make it. 

Not unfrequently the ordinary confessions of persons leading an everyday life are full of great faults, and that because they make little or no preparation, and have not the needful contrition. Owing to this deficiency such people go to confession with a tacit intention of returning to their old sins, inasmuch as they will not avoid the occasions of sin, or take the necessary measures for amendment of life, and in all such cases a general confession is required to steady and fix the soul. 

But, furthermore, a general confession forces us to a clearer selfknowledge, kindles a wholesome shame for our past life, and rouses gratitude for God’s Mercy, Which has so long waited patiently for us;—it comforts the heart, refreshes the spirit, excites good resolutions, affords opportunity to our spiritual Father for giving the most suitable advice, and opens our hearts so as to make future confessions more effectual. 

Therefore I cannot enter into the subject of a general change of life and entire turning to God, by means of a devout life, without urging upon you to begin with a general confession.”

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 tactics of the devil – Saint Alphonsus Liguori

St Alfonso Maria

In Mauritania, there are Bears that go in quest-of the Apes, to feed upon them: as soon as a Bear appears, the Apes run-up the Trees, and thus Save themselves. But what does the Bear do? He stretches himself on the Ground, as if Dead, and waits till the Apes Descend-from the Trees. The Moment he sees that they have Descended, he springs-up, seizes-on them, and Devours them. It is thus, the Devil Acts: he makes the Temptation appear to be Dead; but when a Soul Descends, and Exposes Herself to the Occasion of Sin, he stirs-up Temptation, and Devours Her. Oh! how many Miserable Souls, devoted-to Spiritual Things, to Mental Prayer, to Frequent Communion, and to a, have by Exposing themselves to the Occasion of Sin, become the Slaves of the Devil!
