(Given to the three children by the Angel who preceded Our Lady’s first appearance to them.)
MOST Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. And through the infinite merit of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.

Is he an evil hearted Pope and a bad man -?! No – I don’t think anyone thinks so
He just does not have the exegetical – and theological wherewith all- full stop
He does not have the traditional Catholic formation which was purged from most dicastry leaders under the post-concilar reign
And he does not grasp the urgency of the militancy needed at this juncture He is not a war time concigliere as the Italian say and he has surrounded himself and continues to surround himself with fellow progressivists, modernists, and like minded Jesuitism ecclesials
They were formed in this “Spirit of Vatican II” to create a world universalism among religions (and are still shooting like the Japanese on small Islands five years after WWII ended) No one has told them that the emperor has no cloths on and the marijuana, the acid and the grateful dead music have run out
Only the lay groups and the strong Catholic entities that are left are holding the line and a contingency of a solid percentage of US Catholic stand alone Priests are left on the front lines along with the various Catholic peoples that are NOT part of the Novus Ordo theologica
HHS fell again last night and the Supreme Court ruled again as “un- enforceable in Michigan” – silence from the hierarchy
A major Abortionist that performed upwards of 50,000+ abortions has a turn around and says that he began to know and see that he was murdering babies with squiggling baby body parts scrambling to stay alive – He saw it and renounces abortion !!! Praise our Trintiarian God of might and power
Do we have a Cardinal or a Vatican official to trumpet this turn around as a potential Beatification and Papal Encyclical material – far from it- Silence is deafening
CATHOLICS MUST BEGIN TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ITSELF – END – THE – DENIAL
CHURCH OF NICE – GREAT POPE – THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL FIX EVERYTHING ECT…ARE LIARS
The Holy Spirit calls men and women of all ages to militant action and says God helps those to help themselves and to teach others all around you friends, family, and strangers, the Truth ! in all eras through all the ages
Over half of all the Dutch doctors that are certified to administer care to the mentally ill or those with Dementia would encourage or approve SUICIDE !
The Knights of Columbus are floundering – The national Knights of Columbus has scheduled sessions to consider to allow sodomite marriage receptions in their Catholic properties that were built and dedicated to spreading the Word and work of our Savior Jesus Christ- Here Voris regularly explains their union with the Bishops and the financial grants coming from the Democrats and their unholy partnerships more eloquently than I can ever
But why …why is there high ranking Ecclesiastical silence and even confused response teaching on the actual interpretation of Scripture on these matters and what the Sacred Tradition also dictates as part of the Covenantal Word of God coming from the hierarchy of the Catholic Church
People are not converting to Catholicism in any significant numbers anymore in case anyone is not looking
IF YOU HAVE NOT FIGURED IT OUT YET – WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD?!
I SHALL ASSIST IN CLUEING US TO THE INSIGHT OF YOUR OWN INVESTIGATIONS
IT’S THE RESIDENT CORE THEOLOOGY BEHIND THE NEW RITE OF THE NEW MASS IN THE WESTERN CATHOLIC CHURCH !!!
It’s the abolition of Catholic absolutism – Absolute Truth means there can never be two simultaneous conflicting premises to be True – One must be objectively right and one must be objectively wrong about each issue and at the end we will all find out – Transcendentalism and Universalism that were the core subjects of the 1960s Catholic reformers maintains there can be MULTIPLE TRUTHS and each left to each person’s own conscience that is not just a slightly eroded heretical teaching – That’s full on Apostasy – sufferable throughout all of the eons of Christendom by full excommunication
To this premise lies the resident evil
In the theology of the new Rite – protestant Catholicism leaves each person to the decision of his own conscience and therefore rather than several hundred thousand people that should show up to a northern NJ abortion mill protest you have only a handful and never a Bishop and rarely a Priest unless he is either a Traditional Rite Priest or one of the Eastern Catholic Rites that possess a completely different theology about everything Catholic (or a new Rite Priest willing to face severe career set backs for the sake of the Blood of Truth)
Mother Angelica in her last years before being forced off the board of her own network at EWTN and subsequently having a heart attack had for many years wavered back and forth at her network and with her staff between the Traditional Rite and Charismatic Catholic
One thing she was sure of
The new Rite – the New Mass and the new Theology had gone down someone else’s road not ours

Here are only but two St. Thomas Aquinas and St. John of Damascus
If required I could provide you WITH HUNDREDS
St. Thomas Aquinas on Islam:
“He (Mohammed) seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh urges us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected; he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom. Indeed, the truths that he taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity.
He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the Contrary, Mohammed said that he was sent in the power of his arms – which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants. What is more, no wise men, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him from the beginning (1). Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Mohammed forced others to become his follower’s by the violence of his arms. Nor do divine pronouncements on part of preceding prophets offer him any witness. On the contrary, he perverts almost all the testimony of the Old and the New Testaments by making them into a fabrication of his own, as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is thus clear that those who place faith in his words believe foolishly.”– Summa Contra Gentiles, Book 1, Chapter 16, Art. 4. Footnote: 1. Sura 21:5, Sura 44:14; Sura 16:103, Sura 37:36
St. John of Damascus’s (Doctor of the Church) Critique of Islam:
There is also the superstition of the Ishmaelites which to this day prevails and keeps people in error, being a forerunner of the Antichrist. They are descended from Ishmael, [who] was born to Abraham of Agar, and for this reason they are called both Agarenes and Ishmaelites. They are also called Saracens, which is derived from Sarras kenoi, or destitute of Sara, because of what Agar said to the angel: ‘Sara hath sent me away destitute.’  These used to be idolaters and worshiped the morning star and Aphrodite, whom in their own language they called Khabár, which means great.  And so down to the time of Heraclius they were very great idolaters. From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk,  devised his own heresy. Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration.
He says that there is one God, creator of all things, who has neither been begotten nor has begotten.  He says that the Christ is the Word of God and His Spirit, but a creature and a servant, and that He was begotten, without seed, of Mary the sister of Moses and Aaron.  For, he says, the Word and God and the Spirit entered into Mary and she brought forth Jesus, who was a prophet and servant of God. And he says that the Jews wanted to crucify Him in violation of the law, and that they seized His shadow and crucified this. But the Christ Himself was not crucified, he says, nor did He die, for God out of His love for Him took Him to Himself into heaven.  And he says this, that when the Christ had ascended into heaven God asked Him: ‘O Jesus, didst thou say: “I am the Son of God and God”?’ And Jesus, he says, answered: ‘Be merciful to me, Lord. Thou knowest that I did not say this and that I did not scorn to be thy servant. But sinful men have written that I made this statement, and they have lied about me and have fallen into error.’ And God answered and said to Him: ‘I know that thou didst not say this word.”  There are many other extraordinary and quite ridiculous things in this book which he boasts was sent down to him from God. But when we ask: ‘And who is there to testify that God gave him the book? And which of the prophets foretold that such a prophet would rise up?’—they are at a loss. And we remark that Moses received the Law on Mount Sinai, with God appearing in the sight of all the people in cloud, and fire, and darkness, and storm. And we say that all the Prophets from Moses on down foretold the coming of Christ and how Christ God (and incarnate Son of God) was to come and to be crucified and die and rise again, and how He was to be the judge of the living and dead. Then, when we say: ‘How is it that this prophet of yours did not come in the same way, with others bearing witness to him? And how is it that God did not in your presence present this man with the book to which you refer, even as He gave the Law to Moses, with the people looking on and the mountain smoking, so that you, too, might have certainty?’—they answer that God does as He pleases. ‘This,’ we say, ‘We know, but we are asking how the book came down to your prophet.’ Then they reply that the book came down to him while he was asleep. Then we jokingly say to them that, as long as he received the book in his sleep and did not actually sense the operation, then the popular adage applies to him (which runs: You’re spinning me dreams.) 
When we ask again: ‘How is it that when he enjoined us in this book of yours not to do anything or receive anything without witnesses, you did not ask him: “First do you show us by witnesses that you are a prophet and that you have come from God, and show us just what Scriptures there are that testify about you”’—they are ashamed and remain silent. [Then we continue:] ‘Although you may not marry a wife without witnesses, or buy, or acquire property; although you neither receive an ass nor possess a beast of burden unwitnessed; and although you do possess both wives and property and asses and so on through witnesses, yet it is only your faith and your scriptures that you hold unsubstantiated by witnesses. For he who handed this down to you has no warranty from any source, nor is there anyone known who testified about him before he came. On the contrary, he received it while he was asleep.’
Moreover, they call us Hetaeriasts, or Associators, because, they say, we introduce an associate with God by declaring Christ to the Son of God and God. We say to them in rejoinder: ‘The Prophets and the Scriptures have delivered this to us, and you, as you persistently maintain, accept the Prophets. So, if we wrongly declare Christ to be the Son of God, it is they who taught this and handed it on to us.’ But some of them say that it is by misinterpretation that we have represented the Prophets as saying such things, while others say that the Hebrews hated us and deceived us by writing in the name of the Prophets so that we might be lost. And again we say to them: ‘As long as you say that Christ is the Word of God and Spirit, why do you accuse us of being Hetaeriasts? For the word, and the spirit, is inseparable from that in which it naturally has existence. Therefore, if the Word of God is in God, then it is obvious that He is God. If, however, He is outside of God, then, according to you, God is without word and without spirit. Consequently, by avoiding the introduction of an associate with God you have mutilated Him. It would be far better for you to say that He has an associate than to mutilate Him, as if you were dealing with a stone or a piece of wood or some other inanimate object. Thus, you speak untruly when you call us Hetaeriasts; we retort by calling you Mutilators of God.’
They furthermore accuse us of being idolaters, because we venerate the cross, which they abominate. And we answer them: ‘How is it, then, that you rub yourselves against a stone in your Ka’ba  and kiss and embrace it?’ Then some of them say that Abraham had relations with Agar upon it, but others say that he tied the camel to it, when he was going to sacrifice Isaac. And we answer them: ‘Since Scripture says that the mountain was wooded and had trees from which Abraham cut wood for the holocaust and laid it upon Isaac,  and then he left the asses behind with the two young men, why talk nonsense? For in that place neither is it thick with trees nor is there passage for asses.’ And they are embarrassed, but they still assert that the stone is Abraham’s. Then we say: ‘Let it be Abraham’s, as you so foolishly say. Then, just because Abraham had relations with a woman on it or tied a camel to it, you are not ashamed to kiss it, yet you blame us for venerating the cross of Christ by which the power of the demons and the deceit of the Devil was destroyed.’ This stone that they talk about is a head of that Aphrodite whom they used to worship and whom they called Khabár. Even to the present day, traces of the carving are visible on it to careful observers.
As has been related, this Mohammed wrote many ridiculous books, to each one of which he set a title. For example, there is the book On Woman,  in which he plainly makes legal provision for taking four wives and, if it be possible, a thousand concubines—as many as one can maintain, besides the four wives. He also made it legal to put away whichever wife one might wish, and, should one so wish, to take to oneself another in the same way. Mohammed had a friend named Zeid. This man had a beautiful wife with whom Mohammed fell in love. Once, when they were sitting together, Mohammed said: ‘Oh, by the way, God has commanded me to take your wife.’ The other answered: ‘You are an apostle. Do as God has told you and take my wife.’ Rather—to tell the story over from the beginning—he said to him: ‘God has given me the command that you put away your wife.’ And he put her away. Then several days later: ‘Now,’ he said, ‘God has commanded me to take her.’ Then, after he had taken her and committed adultery with her, he made this law: ‘Let him who will put away his wife. And if, after having put her away, he should return to her, let another marry her. For it is not lawful to take her unless she have been married by another. Furthermore, if a brother puts away his wife, let his brother marry her, should he so wish.’  In the same book he gives such precepts as this: ‘Work the land which God hath given thee and beautify it. And do this, and do it in such a manner” —not to repeat all the obscene things that he did.
Then there is the book of The Camel of God.  About this camel he says that there was a camel from God and that she drank the whole river and could not pass through two mountains, because there was not room enough. There were people in that place, he says, and they used to drink the water on one day, while the camel would drink it on the next. Moreover, by drinking the water she furnished them with nourishment, because she supplied them with milk instead of water. Then, because these men were evil, they rose up, he says, and killed the camel. However, she had an offspring, a little camel, which, he says, when the mother had been done away with, called upon God and God took it to Himself. Then we say to them: ‘Where did that camel come from?’ And they say that it was from God. Then we say: ‘Was there another camel coupled with this one?’ And they say: ‘No.’ ‘Then how,’ we say, ‘was it begotten? For we see that your camel is without father and without mother and without genealogy, and that the one that begot it suffered evil. Neither is it evident who bred her. And also, this little camel was taken up. So why did not your prophet, with whom, according to what you say, God spoke, find out about the camel—where it grazed, and who got milk by milking it? Or did she possibly, like her mother, meet with evil people and get destroyed? Or did she enter into paradise before you, so that you might have the river of milk that you so foolishly talk about? For you say that you have three rivers flowing in paradise—one of water, one of wine, and one of milk. If your forerunner the camel is outside of paradise, it is obvious that she has dried up from hunger and thirst, or that others have the benefit of her milk—and so your prophet is boasting idly of having conversed with God, because God did not reveal to him the mystery of the camel. But if she is in paradise, she is drinking water still, and you for lack of water will dry up in the midst of the paradise of delight. And if, there being no water, because the camel will have drunk it all up, you thirst for wine from the river of wine that is flowing by, you will become intoxicated from drinking pure wine and collapse under the influence of the strong drink and fall asleep. Then, suffering from a heavy head after sleeping and being sick from the wine, you will miss the pleasures of paradise. How, then, did it not enter into the mind of your prophet that this might happen to you in the paradise of delight? He never had any idea of what the camel is leading to now, yet you did not even ask him, when he held forth to you with his dreams on the subject of the three rivers. We plainly assure you that this wonderful camel of yours has preceded you into the souls of asses, where you, too, like beasts are destined to go. And there is the exterior darkness and everlasting punishment, roaring fire, sleepless worms, and hellish demons.’
Again, in the book of The Table, Mohammed says that the Christ asked God for a table and that it was given Him. For God, he says, said to Him: ‘I have given to thee and thine an incorruptible table.’ 
And again, in the book of The Heifer,  he says some other stupid and ridiculous things, which, because of their great number, I think must be passed over. He made it a law that they be circumcised and the women, too, and he ordered them not to keep the Sabbath and not to be baptized.
And, while he ordered them to eat some of the things forbidden by the Law, he ordered them to abstain from others. He furthermore absolutely forbade the drinking of wine.

First question comes in the world of Vatican intrigue which we usually do not get into and stick to the purely theological aspects of the authentic Faith and the upholding of Catholic social teaching as part of the Sacred Tradition elements of the Word of God
The question is in regards to the fact that we already know that there is a civil war within the Catholic Church underway but is there an even more intense one underway “within the Jesuits” and having to do with their new theology on islam and the new widespread theologically shifting sand of protestantism on homosexuality.
Is this a component of the new Catholic universalism touted by such high profile Catholic media figures such as Father Robert Barron with “ ALL PEOPLE have a reasonable hope that everyone will go to heaven” and the rest are dogmatic concept ideas” ?
At the Pontifical Oriental Institute it seems there are some that are planning on making that concept a “forced reality” The Priestly Prior was murdered and found in a nearby field – The Jesuits voted to bring in an Islamic expert to provide the new direction to the Catholic Pontifical Institute, their high ranking Monsignor at odds with the newly invented Catholic dogma on Islam defects from a prestigious chair (at the same University!) to Eastern Orthodoxy. The Jesuits then sweep the whole team out
He repeatedly used the new ideological terminology called “dialogue” that Catholic theologians term false ecumenism – Does it meet the definitions of false ecumenism? Does he call for their conversion or for the hopes of them turning towards sharing the joy in becoming part of the Truth and global witnesses to the plain fact that the Old Covenant has been abrogated (revoked) in it’s fulfillment in a New Covenant that has transpired between God and mankind ?! – Discern for yourselves from within the transcript of his own words if anything like that transpired or instead a new Catholic theology is publicly introduced to the Jewish people
In studying Catholic theology and ecclesial history I find it to be disconcerting and a rupture with the understanding of the writings of 2000 years of Canonized Saints and high ranking Roman Congregations of the Faith of Catholicism and very similar to that of the strange newly created quasi Catholic theology on Islam that was invented only within the past several years
Traditional and or Conservative oriented Catholic Bishops are being deposed right and left – They just forced out yet another relatively good Bishop because he reported the suspected sexual abuse of a Priest in his diocese past the legal limit and six months after it happened
Bishop Robert Finn forced to step down by the Vatican- story below
Mind you subsequent to his book publication and the condemning of him with the statement of no high ranking homosexuals are in decision making positions of influence in the Church – the Cardinal in Scotland admits a permanent homosexual affair but it stands they said, he’s still suspended
Meanwhile outright criminal Bishops are spending millions of dollars of their Parishioners hard earned money on the construction of luxury retirement homes with pools and grand extensive world class libraries – and allocating millions through their votes in the USCB towards groups that advocate euthanasia, abortion, prescription contraception distribution inside of vaccines to 3rd world country mothers, and pro-sodomy organizations while simultaneously closing Churches and Schools without a fight
One of the heads of the USCB’s main Charity Organization CRS (Catholic Relief Services) is a man married to another man and is a public activist advocate for sodomite marriages and against laws that uphold marriage between one man and one woman as just reported
Meanwhile the Jesuits hammer away not only on the new islamic dogmas that the Sacred Scripture scholar and theologian Scott Hahn has publicly spoken out against but also the social tract that continues full force down the rabbit hole of “Liberation Theology”
Facing an onslaught of criticism of their plans to Beatify Oscar Romero, Pope Francis declares him a hero to liberation theology, a martyr and schedules beatification in September 2015 and that as a martyr (which was also fiercely debated) no miracles will be required
It’s a miracle enough that they Beatified him, Romero’s beatification process was blocked during the papacies of John Paul II and Benedict XVI both of whon were opposed to both Liberation Theology and Oscar Romero
Meanwhile a powerhouse of Saintly man – The Polish Edmund Bojanowski from the late 1800s and his steadfast claims of the necessity towards public works of Catholic Faith and Charity is stalled ?! somewhere ?! we don’t know where
How about Blessed John Duns Scotus ? A Dogmatic hero and theological defender of Our Lady and the Immaculate Conception from the 1600s a monster size Franciscan of the Immaculata – cause for Canonization is ?! where exactly (maybe offensive to new rite dialogue with protestants? nah)
Obviously at the very least they are far behind the agenda of the reigning liberation Jesuitism for sure
Let me refresh my ecclesial historical memory again – The Jesuits were suppressed on and off for over 150 years in the history of the Catholic Church but officially and close to abolishment for 25 years in the 1700s at the time of ______”the French Revolution’s………………..
Liberation Theology …..(very good ) and the ideology of ? ………you guessed it Freemasonry ……(amazing how things are so connected when you actually study them )
along with the heavy unbearable weight the Church has placed upon the new Rite’s orientation to protestant ecumenism with a mass defection underway by the majority of protestantism towards the social enshrinement of sodomy – What does this new Rite’s theology do now ….? as the world now anxiously awaits the Pope of the Catholic Church to change the religion of the Body of Christ in the Church established by Jesus Christ himself

We won’t use the word heresy with our own Pope but would instead call it a severely misguided ideology of a former Catholic hierarchy (a prosperity gospel with threads of universalism and syncretism have infiltrated the Church) which is something that the Catholic world will not be able to “ideologically’ return to nor sustain

The powerhouse of our late Cardinal, His Eminence Francis George, that passed away this past Friday, may God rest his soul, became a unique part of the restoration he began and part of new treasure store houses being built up on a daily basis
As Archbishop of Illinois he kicked it off at the run down and defunct St. Gelasius Church in the south-side of Chicago
Within and surrounded by a mix of college communities, abject poverty, and protestantism his Eminence Francis George kicked off the restoration of the magnificent structure and it’s convergence to a national Shrine of Christ the King
The restoration is on-going and it could conceivably take decades (as all large major works of Sacred Architecture and worship take) but it is underway! Amidst a thriving Traditional community the Cardinal gifted to the Order of Christ the King Sovereign Priest the expanding location as their national headquarters ICKSP is the order that also runs the Oratory of Saint Anthony of Padua in West Orange, NJ
A financial gift to the Chicago restoration efforts towards the level of a National Shrine of Christ the King is a great way to supplant the funds we once use to donate to the Bishops appeals prior to discovering that the USCB regularly givies our money to pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage groups
The story, the success, and the video can be found here owing to the Cardinal’s understanding of the path that Catholic restoration must take to reverse the destruction wrought upon our Holy Mother Church

Cardinal Willem Eijk, of the Netherlands states that due to the Vatican II edict bans on proselytization and evangelization and due to the new method of “dialogue” the Netherlands will be establishing new “dialogue” with realtors and close 1000 Churches and eliminate roughly 2/3rds of the Catholic Church in the Netherlands
Let us look at the current state of Catholic Schools in the United States
In the months leading up to the opening session of Vatican II Council there were over 13,000 Catholic schools in the US and over 5 million Catholic school students
From the close of the 4th session of the Vatican II Council till the present date we are down to less than 6500 Catholic schools and less than 2 million Catholic school students
Of outstanding note * This occurred at time when simultaneously the total quantity of US citizens increased by 60 MILLION PEOPLE over the same period *
In the last two years rather than institute reforms and or Catholic education restoration programs the US Bishops have run from the situation and instead closed 2000 schools in the past 30 months while the USCB boys club decides how to divide the spoils
I now provide you not with the root cause analysis but the amazing and numerous symptoms from today’s era Catholic news stories
LGBT Radicals Organize Hundreds To March Against San Francisco Archbishop’s Policy On Teachers : News Headlines – Catholic Culture
You will remember about four years ago in 2011 when the Trenton Catholics raised uproar over Bishop David O’Connell’s choice to move from a Rectory in the City to new Five Story Cape on over a dozen acres in Lawrence, NJ a lush suburb of Princeton that he had the diocese pay over a half million for not including furnishings This occurred just after he closed the largest amount of Catholic Schools in the history of his diocese
This past year 2014-2015 our corrupt Newark Archdiocese Bishop did the exact same thing – following it like a blueprint
Bishops here have multiplied like rabbits There are over 450 of them in this country
Sure there a half dozen rock solid orthodox Bishops but the question remains WHERE ARE THE OTHER 400+ ?!
There is a secular war going on against the Catholic Church in the United States and simultaneously within the Catholic Church is a raging civil war and the majority of them have chosen from two options to either run or to hide and now a new third option has come up ………some are hiding while running
Catholic education is all but gone (by majority in the US) now 60% in dissolution headed towards 70% are GONE – ! Not on hold but gone –Let’s be honest ! Trading –selling and leasing Catholic school buildings takes up the majority of their time – Indoor pools and home libraries are not cheap – highly expensive
Meanwhile in their absence Catholic HS students now believe it’s part of being an “American Catholic” to protest in favor of and on behalf of homosexual teachers as seen here in this Catholic HS
The radically liberal executive branch of the United States government – having all but conquered the Catholic school system leaving one regimen behind to finish her off – has now turned it’s attention to dismantling Catholic Health and Hospitals which to date in 2015 is still by majority 55% controlled by the Catholic Church. Another extensive dismantling story for another time looms large in that sector
To compound matters worse the majority of Faithful Catholic men in this country that are being called to step up and lead their Parishes – their Families and others to Catholic restoration and reform believe that it is somehow a Catholic attribute to remain silent on the situation with the Bishops and the Church.
Catholic men are called to stand up and say without flinching, and regardless of what any other cacophony blurts out, the unshakeable Truth is that THE MAJORITY OF UNITED STATES CATHOLIC BISHOPS ARE COWARDS and we as Faithful Catholic men and Knights will lead our Families over and above their quasi missing in action leadership
You do realize that LGBT groups should complete forcing the Catholic Church completely out of children Adoption apostolates by the 4th Quarter of 2016 ?! – A ministry (which they now call a taxable business) was always and formerly the mainstay, at least in this Country of the Catholic Church
Now I provide remediation and root cause analysis
#1 We need what Italian people call a war time Consigliere – A Supreme Pontiff – of the Pius Popes tradition that will re-institute the full Tiera – the Procession Chair, an International Catholic Military, the Tribunal of the Inquisition, and who will command all people to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the spot
#2 The death penalty should be used for mass murderers and public pay per view executions of apostate Catholic Bishops – and any clerics found to be practicing Freemasonry
#3 The Swiss Guard should be tripled – and also accompany Curial Inquisition Cardinals for support – The Swiss Guard is already armed with automatic weapons of which many are not aware of – (See the documentary on the Pontifical Swiss Guard – many of which regularly attend traditional Mass)
On a more sober note and all Christmas wish lists aside – Root cause analysis follows
Bishop Athanasius Snyder issued a public letter in need of addressing that many Bishops agree will at least stop gap some of the blood letting
“If not a full Vatican III than a syllabus of correction of Vatican II is needed” states Bishop Athanasius Snyder
If you ever have time to read two documents of the Council
These two …Dignitatis Humanae and Guadium Et Spes are the two most heretical Catholic Church documents ever written and of which there is something on every page that violates Infallible Catholic Church teachings If you’re not sure then refer to the Scripture “By their fruit you will know them” and then review the above consequences
You must remember one key fact –Of the 21 Councils of the Catholic Church – Vatican II – is the only one that IS NOT a binding doctrinal council but a Pastoral Advisory – – I urge you and all Catholics to confirm that fact on their own and it WILL change your life
** A public letter from the words of Bishop Athanasius Snyder follow **
THE CHALLENGE OF OPPOSING INTERPRETATIONS by Bishop Athanasius Schneider
[. . .] For a correct interpretation of Vatican Council II, it is necessary to keep in mind the intention manifested in the conciliar documents themselves and in the specific words of the Popes who convened and presided over it, John XXIII and Paul VI.
Moreover, it is necessary to discover the common thread of the entire work of the Council, meaning its pastoral intention, which is the “salus animarum,” the salvation of souls. This, in turn, depends on and is subordinate to the promotion of divine worship and of the glory of
God, it depends on the primacy of God.
This primacy of God in life and in all the activity of the Church is manifested unequivocally by the fact that the constitution on the liturgy occupies, conceptually and chronologically, the first place in the vast work of the Council. [. . .]
The characteristic of the rupture in the interpretation of the conciliar texts is manifested in a more stereotypical and widespread way in the thesis of an anthropocentric, secularist, or naturalistic shift of Vatican Council II with respect to the previous ecclesial tradition.
One of the best-known manifestations of such a mistaken interpretation has been, for example, so-called liberation theology and the subsequent devastating pastoral practice.
What contrast there is between this liberation theology and its practice and the Council appears evident from the following conciliar teaching: “Christ, to be sure, gave His Church no proper mission in the political, economic or social order. The purpose which He set before her is a religious one” (cf. “Gaudium et Spes,” 42). [. . .]
One interpretation of rupture of lighter doctrinal weight has been manifested in the pastoral- liturgical field. One might mention in this regard the decline of the sacred and sublime character of the liturgy, and the introduction of more anthropocentric elements of expression.
This phenomenon can be seen in three liturgical practices that are fairly well known and widespread in almost all the parishes of the Catholic sphere: the almost complete disappearance of the use of the Latin language, the reception of the Eucharistic body of Christ directly in the hand while standing, and the celebration of the Eucharistic sacrifice in the modality of a closed circle in which priest and people are constantly looking at each other.
This way of praying – without everyone facing the same direction, which is a more natural corporal and symbolic expression with respect to the truth of everyone being oriented toward God in public worship – contradicts the practice that Jesus himself and his apostles observed in public prayer, both in the temple and in the synagogue. It also contradicts the unanimous testimony of the Fathers and of all the subsequent tradition of the Eastern and Western Church.
These three pastoral and liturgical practices glaringly at odds with the law of prayer maintained by generations of the Catholic faithful for at least one millennium find no support in the conciliar texts, and even contradict both a specific text of the Council (on the Latin language: cf. “Sacrosanctum Concilium,” 36 and 54) and the “mens,” the true intention of the conciliar Fathers, as can be seen in the proceedings of the Council.
In the hermeneutical uproar of the contrasting interpretations, and in the confusion of pastoral and liturgical applications, what appears as the only authentic interpreter of the conciliar texts is the Council itself, together with the pope.
One could make a comparison with the confused hermeneutical climate of the first centuriesof the Church, caused by arbitrary biblical and doctrinal interpretations on the part of heterodox groups. In his famous work “De Praescriptione Haereticorum,” Tertullian was ableto counter the heretics of various tendencies with the fact that only the Church possesses the “praescriptio,” meaning only the Church is the legitimate proprietor of the faith, of the word of
God and of the tradition. The Church can use this to fend off the heretics in disputes over true interpretation. Only the Church can say, according to Tertullian, “Ego sum heres Apostolorum,” I am the heir of the apostles. By way of analogy, only the supreme magisterium of the pope or of a future ecumenical council will be able to say: “Ego sum heres Concilii Vaticani II.”
In recent decades there existed, and still exist today, groupings within the Church that are perpetrating an enormous abuse of the pastoral character of the Council and its texts, written according to this pastoral intention, since the Council did not want to present its own definitive or unalterable teachings. From the same pastoral nature of the texts of the Council, it can be seen that its texts are in principle open to supplementation and to further doctrinal clarifications. Keeping in mind the now decades-long experience of interpretations that are doctrinally and pastorally mistaken and contrary to the bimillennial continuity of the doctrine and prayer of the faith, there thus arises the necessity and urgency of a specific and authoritative intervention of the pontifical magisterium for an authentic interpretation of the conciliar texts, with supplementation and doctrinal clarifications; a sort of “Syllabus” of the errors in the interpretation of Vatican Council II.
There is the need for a new Syllabus, this time directed not so much against the errors coming from outside of the Church, but against the errors circulated within the Church by supporters of the thesis of discontinuity and rupture, with its doctrinal, liturgical, and pastoral application.
Such a Syllabus should consist of two parts: the part that points out the errors, and the positive part with proposals for clarification, completion, and doctrinal clarification.
Two groupings stand out for their support of the theory of rupture. One of these groupings tries to “Protestantize” the life of the Church doctrinally, liturgically, and pastorally. On the opposite side are those traditional groups which, in the name of tradition, reject the Council and exempt themselves from submission to the supreme living magisterium of the Church,from the visible head of the Church, the vicar of Christ on earth, submitting meanwhile only to the invisible head of the Church, waiting for better times. [. . .]
In essence, there have been two impediments preventing the true intention of the Council and its magisterium from bearing abundant and lasting fruit. One was found outside of the Church, in the violent process of cultural and social revolution during the 1960’s, which like every powerful social phenomenon penetrated inside the Church, infecting with its spirit of rupture vast segments of persons and institutions.
The other impediment was manifested in the lack of wise and at the same time intrepid pastors of the Church who might be quick to defend the purity and integrity of the faith and of liturgical and pastoral life, not allowing themselves to be influenced by flattery or fear.
The Council of Trent had already affirmed in one of its last decrees on the general reform of the Church: “The holy synod, shaken by the many extremely serious evils that afflict the Church, cannot do other than recall that the thing most necessary for the Church of God is to select excellent and suitable pastors; all the more in that our Lord Jesus Christ will ask for an account of the blood of those sheep that should perish because of the bad governance of negligent pastors unmindful of their duty” (Session XXIV, Decree “de reformatione,” can. 1). The Council continued: “As for all those who for any reason have been authorized by the Holy See to intervene in the promotion of future prelates or those who take part in this in another way, the holy Council exhorts and admonishes them to remember above all that they can do nothing more useful for the glory of God and the salvation of the people than to devote themselves to choosing good and suitable pastors to govern the Church.”
So there is truly a need for a Syllabus on the Council with doctrinal value, and moreover there is a need for an increase in the number of holy, courageous pastors deeply rooted in the tradition of the Church, free from any sort of mentality of rupture, both in the doctrinal field and in the liturgical field. These two elements constitute the indispensable condition so that doctrinal, liturgical, and pastoral confusion may diminish significantly, and so that the pastoral work of Vatican Council II may bear much lasting fruit in the spirit of the tradition, which connects us to the spirit that has reigned in every time, everywhere and in all true children of the Catholic Church, which is the only and the true Church of God on earth.
