Archive Review Of The Prof Dietrich Von Hildebrand Book The Devastated Vineyard By Michael Davies On Angelus
In this Preface he sets out the purpose of his book in very clear terms:
“The purpose of this book is, first of all, to give a short, clear presentation of the principal errors which are being presented today as a breakthrough to the “modern” man who has “come of age,” whom one can supposedly no longer expect to believe the teaching of the Church in the form it has taken up to now . . . Secondly, we shall especially try to unmask those hidden, subtle errors which are usually introduced under beautiful, apparently noble titles, and whose danger is often overlooked even by believing Catholics.”
The biggest abortion supporters are strangely enough, you guesed it , the homosexualist community. Now we have mounting empirical evidence as presented by Linda Harvey at a Cleveland Right To Life Convention that you can read about and watch her outstanding 45 minute talk here.

The surprising reason why LGBT and abortion activists have been close allies from the beginning | News | LifeSite
The pro-abortion and LGBT movements are linked spiritually, ideologically and politically, a Christian pro-family advocate says. Because of this, it has become more important than ever before for pro-life and family advocates to unite against these enemies of life and the family.
Linda Harvey – Bringing America Back to Life 2018 – YouTube
Former abortion volunteer and Christian convert Linda Harvey explained to a recent pro-life conference how the LGBT and abortion movements have the common elements of rejecting God’s plan for humanity and targeting children.
Unsurprising was the tight connection between the elements of the culture of
death “The first one to demand the poster’s removal was Democratic Party Senator Monica Cirinnà, champion of LGBT rights and author of the bill that
eventually sanctioned homosexual civil unions in Italy.”
Malta archbishop open to contraceptive use by married couples? : News Headlines | Catholic Culture
Attempts to make a distinction between chemical contraception and chemical abortifacients that contain a common chemical and the commonality of being produced by the same pharmaceutical companies . This support also violates Thomas Aquinas teachings on secondary (mortal ) sin in support of companies and concerns involved in grave evil
The only thing worthy of comment from this selection is his apostolic ardor that drove him to fight heresy until the last breath of his life.
We see that he was very sick, worn out from his many labors. When he went to celebrate Mass, he found himself without the strength to say it. But, he was so opposed to the enemy that, even in this weak state, he ascended to the pulpit and gave a great sermon against the heretics, a sermon more energetic and ardent than all the others he had delivered before. This was his last act; after that he died.
As counter-revolutionaries, we should always be ready to fight against error & heresy
From the Book of Revelation 9:1-12 The plague of locusts
The fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I, John, saw a star fall from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the abyss; he opened it and smoke poured out of the shaft like smoke from an enormous furnace. The sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the shaft. Out of the smoke, onto the land, came locusts as powerful as scorpions in their sting. The locusts were commanded to do no harm to the grass in the land or to any plant or tree but only to those men who had not the seal of God on their foreheads. The locusts were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months; the pain they inflicted was like that of a scorpion’s sting. During that time these men will seek death but will not find it; they will yearn to die but death will escape them.
In appearance the locusts were like horses equipped for battle. On their heads they wore something like gold crowns; their faces were like men’s faces but they had hair like women’s hair. Their teeth were the teeth of lions, their chests like iron breastplates. Their wings made a sound like the roar of many chariots and horses charging into battle. They had tails with stingers like scorpions; in their tails was enough venom to harm men for five months. Acting as their king was the angel in charge of the abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek Apollyon.
The first woe is past, but beware! There are two more to come.

From the Book of Revelation 8:1-13 The seven angels punish the earth
When the Lamb broke open the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw that the seven angels who stood before God were given seven trumpets.
Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a gold censer. He was given a great quantity of incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the holy ones, on the gold altar that was before the throne. The smoke of the incense along with the prayers of the holy ones went up before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with burning coals from the altar, and hurled it down to the earth. There were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.
The seven angels who were holding the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.
When the first one blew his trumpet, there came hail and fire mixed with blood, which was hurled down to the earth. A third of the land was burned up, along with a third of the trees and all green grass.
When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a large burning mountain was hurled into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood, a third of the creatures living in the sea died, and a third of the ships were wrecked.
When the third angel blew his trumpet, a large star burning like a torch fell from the sky. It fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The star was called “Wormwood,” and a third of all the water turned to wormwood. Many people died from this water, because it was made bitter.
When the fourth angel blew his trumpet, a third of the sun, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them became dark. The day lost its light for a third of the time, as did the night.
Then I looked again and heard an eagle flying high overhead cry out in a loud voice, “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth from the rest of the trumpet blasts that the three angels are about to blow!”
Pope Francis And The Vatican Closes Ancient Cloister of the Briggitines in Munich – On EP
On words from Pope Francis latest encyclical
“It is not healthy to love the silence and avoid meeting others, to want peace and reject activity, seek prayer and despise ministry. Everything can be accepted and integrated as part of one’s own existence in this world and be integrated into the path of sanctification. We are called to live contemplation in the midst of action, and we sanctify ourselves in the responsible and generous exercise of our mission “(GeE, 26).
Zeno’s Papacy and the Sherlock Holmes Axiom – By Hilary White On The Remnant Newspaper
“Among the questions remaining at this astonishing pass is how fine is he going to be able to cut the remaining infinitesimal distance between himself and a formal declaration of heresy? And, perhaps even more to the point thismonth, as Cardinals Burke and Br and muller were speaking at a Rome conferenceon the “confusion in the Church” over doctrine whilst never once actually calling Francis out by name to demand that he declare and defend Catholictruth: who is going to hold him to it? Who, among these “good” bishops and cardinals is going to say to him, to his face, “Holy Father, you’re a
heretic and you will lose the papal office if you do not recant immediatel y.”? Who of our hierarchy is going to have the guts to call it?”
Christians, in this civilizational struggle, need to be awakened from their slumber, moral malaise, and decades of being driven into oblivion by political elites who are destroying the spatial revolution from which 2,000 years of Christian fertility has nurtured and guided Western man.
The Arianism in the new Rite is sometimes subtle requiring a theologically trained eye , other times more pronounced as in the example below
Prior to the Council the prayers of the Offices, The Masses and even the Indulgence prayers (as seen in the preconciliar collection book of all the Indulgences and Indulgenced prayers of the Roman Catholic Church “The Raccolta” – A Manual of Indulgences, Prayers & Devotions) http://www.aquinasandmore.com/catholic-books/raccolta/sku/20201/s/97?dfw_tracker=20512-20201&gclid=CjwKCAjwk9HWBRApEiwA6mKWadpA_Nls1hsl_FrEIMepII2j-f1D56OrTWXeLZkRO5EpUK2KY9FX8RoCp0EQAvD_BwE where prayer openings and ending are balanced between the three persons of the Holy Trinity – Sometime addressed to God the Holy Ghost in union with God the Father and God the Son , Sometimes and frequently addressed to God the Son in union with God the Holy Ghost and God the Father. The new Rite addresses 95% of all prayers to God the Father in union with God the Holy Ghost and God the Son. This reveals the Arian thought of the Council and the post-conciliar era , it’s found everywhere , especially in modern Catholic prayers and modern Catholic radio, Jesus is a Holy man and our Brother , not our Father in union with God the Father. It’s constant . More revealing is NEVER does the Church in the post conciliar era formally and or theologically address the Arianism of the seventh day adventists and the jehovahs witnesses , never , why because it sympathizes with them. When we have spreading errors in every previous eras of the Church the magisterium addressed it head on and indeed the seventh day Adventist/JWs are insidiously spreading like a contagion to by majority an evangelizing of uncatechized Catholics that abandoned the unintelligibility of the novus ordo
From the Divine Office of The Liturgy Of The Hours – Office Of The Readings From Saturday April 14th
From the he constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council On God’s Plan For Salvation
The bolded refutations are mine
In his desire that all men should be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth, God spoke in former times to our forefathers through the prophets, on many occasions and in different ways. Then, in the fullness of time he sent his Son, the Word made man, anointed by the Holy Spirit to bring good news to the poor, (the spirit came forth from God the Father and God the Son) to heal the broken-hearted as the physician of body and spirit and the mediator between God and men. (Jesus is the mediator to God the Father – the Blessed Mother is the mediatrix between God the Son and humanity ) In the unity of the person of the Word, his human nature was the instrument of our salvation. (The instrument of our salvation was his two natures , in hypostasis , in one person , his Divine Nature inseparably united to His human nature ) Thus in Christ there has come to be the perfect atonement that reconciles us with God, and we have been given the power to offer the fullness of divine worship.
This work of man’s redemption and God’s perfect glory was foreshadowed by God’s mighty deeds among the people of the Old Covenant. It was brought to fulfillment by Christ the Lord, (who completely abrogated the Old Covenant) especially through the paschal mystery of his blessed passion, resurrection from the dead and ascension in glory: by dying he destroyed our death, and by rising again he restored our life. From his side, as he lay asleep on the cross, (he was never asleep – he descended immediately into the realms of the hades of the dead ) was born that wonderful sacrament which is the Church in its entirety. (The Church was not born from the puncture of His side on Calvary Mount of Golgotha but at the descent of the Holy Ghost on Pentecost) Secondly the Church is not in any way a Sacrament but the Mystical Body of Christ that contains seven Sacraments outside of which there is no salvation)
As Christ was sent by the Father, so in his turn he sent the apostles, filled with the Holy Spirit. They were sent to preach the Gospel to every creature, proclaiming that we had been set free from the power of Satan and from death by the death and resurrection of God’s Son, and brought into the kingdom of the Father. They were sent also to bring into effect this saving work that they proclaimed, by means of the sacrifice and sacraments that are the pivot of the whole life of the liturgy. (They are not the pivot as salvation can only be attained by God’s Grace . God’s grace is obtained and maintained through the Sacraments therefore they are the primary
“method” of Salvation to our Trinitarian God )
So, by baptism men are brought within the paschal mystery. Dead with Christ, buried with Christ, risen with Christ, they receive the Spirit that makes them God’s adopted children, crying out: Abba, Father; and so they become the true adorers that the Father seeks.
In the same way, whenever they eat the supper of the Lord they proclaim his death until he comes. So, on the very day of Pentecost, on which the Church was manifested to the world, (contrary to what was taught above in the same confusing document ) those who received the word of Peter were baptized. They remained steadfast in the teaching of the apostles and in the communion of the breaking of bread, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.
(The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not the Supper of the Lord in the primacy , which is Holy Thursday. This is secondary and attempted to raise to primacy by Vatican II while lowering THE primacy which is the representation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Cross , a heart rendering solemn event on our knees.)
From that time onward the Church has never failed to come together to celebrate the paschal mystery, by reading what was written about him in every part of Scripture, by celebrating the Eucharist in which the victory and triumph of his death are shown forth, and also by giving thanks to God for the inexpressible gift he has given in Christ Jesus, to the praise of God’s glory.
(The redefinition of the Mass as a Eucharistic celebration of the resurrection is the protestant error of Lutheran and Episcopalian doctrines that Vatican II sought an overnight unity with)
By sneaking these types of corrupted documents into the Liturgy of the Hours every month or two and have all the religious read them every year unawares and unprepared to defend their own disformation the consequences prove to be dire. Other religious knowing better turn instead to a secondary reading by one of the Saints to supplant.
A common practice of many as well as to restrict the praying reading of the new rite liturgy of the hours to Advent /Christmas and Lent/ Eastertide and resort back to the Little Office of The Blessed Virgin Mary in between seasons – especially since the new Rite abolished Pentecost Season and all its octaves following Pentecost Sunday and returns to the weirdness of “ordinary time “ at midnight on Pentecost Sunday
Catholics seeking restoration have to be aware of these things and forcefully & adamantly reject them from Catholic life and the building of traditional Catholic families
This is not to say that arguably 80% to 90% of the new Rite Liturgy of the hours is not otherwise a retention of the traditional Catholic psalmody , minus the overlay of the new disjointed Calendar of the Saints and the martyrology . It was actually the Holy Ghost Fathers (the pre-SSPX order) and Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre that fought for retaining the current structure of the new Rite Liturgy of the hours against an onslaught of requested liberalisms

“Points of Rupture” of the Second Vatican Council with the Tradition of the Church – A Synopsis

An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine: Cardinal John H. Newman – On Amazon.com: Books
AcB Chaput recently said“ A nation’s identity fractures when it changes so rapidly, so deeply and in so many ways, that the fabric of the culture ruptures into pieces that no longer fit together. We’re close to that point as a society right now—if not past it.”
If this is true of a nation how much more can it be said of our Faith system and its central method of the worship in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass . For it is written that the Church cannot change in any fundamental way but only build upon pre-existing Tradition.
Pope St. Martin I Reflections – On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
From Abydos messengers were sent to the imperial city to announce the arrival of the prisoner Pope who was branded as a heretic and rebel, an enemy of God and of the State. Upon his arrival in Constantinople Martin was left for several hours on deck exposed to the jests and insults of a curious crowd of spectators. Towards evening he was brought to a prison called Prandearia and kept in close and cruel confinement for ninety-three days, suffering from hunger, cold and thirst. All this did not break his energy and on 19 December he was brought before the assembled senate where the imperial treasurer acted as judge. Subscription8Various political charges were made, but the true and only charge was the pope’s refusal to sign the “Typus”. He was then carried to an open space in full view of the emperor and of a large crowd of people. These were asked to pass anathema upon the pope to which but few responded. Numberless indignities were heaped upon him, he was stripped of nearly all his clothing, loaded with chains, dragged through the streets of the city and then again thrown into the prison of Diomede, where he remained for eighty five days. Perhaps influenced by the death of Paul, Patriarch of Constantinople, Constans did not sentence the pope to death, but to exile. He was put on board a ship, 26 March, 654 (655) and arrived at his destination on 15 May. Cherson was at the time suffering from a great famine. The venerable pontiff here passed the remaining days of his life. He was buried in the church of Our Lady, called Blachdernæ, near Cherson, and many miracles are related as wrought by St Martin in life and after death. The greater part of his relics are said to have been transferred to Rome, where they repose in the church of San Martino ai Monti. Of his letters seventeen are extant in P.L

TGEU welcomes Swedish parliament’s historic decision
In a world first, the Parliament in Sweden decided yesterday (21/03/18) to
pay compensation to trans people who were forcibly sterilized. Under the
country’s former gender recognition law, which came into force in 1972,
trans people had to be sterilized for their gender to be legally recognized.
This grave human rights violation was not ended until 2013 when the Court of
Appeal in Stockholm found it to be contrary to the Swedish constitution and
European Convention on Human Rights.
What do The New York Times, transgender activists, the German bishops, and liturgy have in common? Let me tell you.
Jennifer Finney Boylan, who writes for TheNew York Times on “family life, parenting, LGBT issues,” launched into a screed against Ryan Anderson’s new book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment. The column denounced the book as “abundant in junk science,” suggesting it was the result of his “many minutes of meticulous research” and filled with a multitude of “things to break your heart in this book.”

She suffered for the moral corruption and decay of her time – Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
Saint Lydwine and Our Times
Immersed in the moral corruption and decay of modern society, we wonder if there still exist expiatory victims whose continual mortification holds back the chastising hand of God, allowing Him to bestow undeserved graces and blessings upon a sinful world. There certainly has never been a time more in need of them.
However, in addition to these special souls, our society as a whole must look to the cross as means of union with Christ. As the Church has always taught, we must all “take up our crosses and follow Him.” Then, we will find true joy, conquer the errors of our days and together with Saint Veronica Giulani, exclaim: “Long live the Sacred Cross: Long live suffering!”
From the book of Revelation 4:1-11 The vision of God
I, John, had another vision: above me there was an open door to heaven, and I heard the trumpetlike voice which had spoken to me before. It said, “Come up here and I will show you what must take place in time to come.”
At once I was caught up in ecstasy . A throne was standing there in heaven, and on the throne was seated One whose appearance had a gemlike sparkle as of jasper and carnelian. Around the throne was a rainbow as brilliant as emerald. Surrounding this throne were twenty-four other thrones upon which were seated twenty-four elders; they were clothed in white garments and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning and peals of thunder; before it burned seven flaming torches, the seven spirits of God.
The floor around the throne was like a sea of glass that was crystal-clear.
At the very center, around the throne itself, stood four living creatures covered with eyes front and back. The first creature resembled a lion, the second an ox; the third had the face of a man, while the fourth looked like an eagle in flight. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and eyes all over, inside and out.
Day and night, without pause, they sing: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, He who was, and who is, and who is to come!”
Whenever these creatures give glory and honor and praise to the One seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before the One seated on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever. They throw down their crowns before the throne and sing:
“O Lord our God, you are worthy to receive glory and honor and power! For you have created all things; by your will they came to be and were made!”
From a sermon by Saint Theodore the Studite The precious and life-giving cross of Christ
How precious the gift of the cross, how splendid to contemplate! In the cross there is no mingling of good and evil, as in the tree of paradise: it is wholly beautiful to behold and good to taste. The fruit of this tree is not death but life, not darkness but light. This tree does not cast us out of paradise, but opens the way for our return.
This was the tree on which Christ, like a king on a chariot, destroyed the devil, the Lord of death, and freed the human race from his tyranny. This was the tree upon which the Lord, like a brave warrior wounded in his hands, feet and side, healed the wounds of sin that the evil serpent had inflicted on our nature. A tree once caused our death, but now a tree brings life. Once deceived by a tree, we have now repelled the cunning serpent by a tree. What an astonishing transformation! That death should become life, that decay should become immortality, that shame should become glory! Well might the holy Apostle exclaim: Far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world! The supreme wisdom that flowered on the cross has shown the folly of worldly wisdom’s pride. The knowledge of all good, which is the fruit of the cross, has cut away the shoots of wickedness.
The wonders accomplished through this tree were foreshadowed clearly even by the mere types and figures that existed in the past. Meditate on these, if you are eager to learn. Was it not the wood of a tree that enabled Noah, at God’s command, to escape the destruction of the flood together with his sons, his wife, his sons’ wives and every kind of animal? And surely the rod of Moses prefigured the cross when it changed water into blood, swallowed up the false serpents of Pharaoh’s magicians, divided the sea at one stroke and then restored the waters to their normal course, drowning the enemy and saving God’s own people? Aaron’s rod, which blossomed in one day in proof of his true priesthood, was another figure of the cross, and did not Abraham foreshadow the cross when he bound his son Isaac and placed him on the pile of wood?
By the cross death was slain and Adam was restored to life. The cross is the glory of all the apostles, the crown of the martyrs, the sanctification of the saints. By the cross we put on Christ and cast aside our former self. By the cross we, the sheep of Christ, have been gathered into one flock, destined for the sheepfolds of heaven.
The hypostasis of the two natures of Christ in ONE person
Represented by the dogma theology and image of the crowned scepter /image of Jesus Christ and his Sacred Heart – the Reign of his Social Kingship must be enforced by untied governments of Christendom or all freedoms will be taken away
The other part is the relationship to the unfulfilled mandates of our Lady, of Russia , and the Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart.Ignorance of Scripture that salvation comes from the Jews and its foundations. If Jesus Christ is truly the eternal Davidic King there must legally and theologically be a Gebriah Queen whose un-refusable intercession to the King never fades and as represented in so many Sacred Scriptures . She prophesized the last battle would be over the traditional faith , traditional marriages, and families. In my instructions are not followed explicitly Russia will spread its errors to the world and it will result in disorder, chaos, and cataclysms

From the Book of Revelation 2:12-29 To the churches at Pergamum and Thyatira
I, John, heard the Lord saying to me: “To the presiding spirit of the church in Pergamum, write this:
“The One with the sharp, two-edged sword has this to say: I know you live in the very place where Satan’s throne is erected; and I know you hold fast to my name and have not denied the faith you have in me, not even at the time when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred in your city where Satan has his home. Nevertheless I hold a few matters against you: there are some among you who follow the teaching of Balaam, who instructed Balak to throw a stumbling block in the way of the Israelites by tempting them to eat food sacrificed to idols and to practice fornication. Yes, you too have those among you who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Therefore repent! If you do not, I will come to you soon and fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
“Let him who has ears heed the Spirit’s word to the churches! To the victor I will give the hidden manna; I will also give him a white stone upon which is inscribed a new name, to be known only by him who receives it.
“To the presiding spirit of the church in Thyatira, write this:
“The Son of God, whose eyes blaze like fire and whose feet gleam like polished brass, has this to say: I know your deeds—your love and faith and service—as well as your patient endurance; I know also that your efforts of recent times are greater than ever. Nevertheless I hold this against you: you tolerate a Jezebel—that self-styled prophetess who seduces my servants by teaching them to practice lewdness and to eat food sacrificed to idols. I have given her a chance to repent but she refuses to turn from her lewdness. I mean to cast her down on a bed of pain; her companions in sin I will plunge into intense suffering unless they repent of their sins with her, and her children I will put to death. Thus shall all the churches come to know that I am the searcher of hearts and minds, and that I will give each of you what your conduct deserves.
And now I address myself to you others in Thyatira who do not uphold this teaching and know nothing of the so-called “deep secrets” of Satan; on you I place no further burden. In any case, hold fast to what you have until I come.
“To the one who wins the victory, who keeps to my ways till the end, I will give authority over the nations—the same authority I received from my Father. He shall rule them with a rod of iron and shatter them like crockery; and I will give him the morning star.
“Let him who has ears heed the Spirit’s word to the churches!”
From a Letter from Saint Cyprian, bishop and martyr The contest of faith
As we do battle and fight in the contest of faith, God, his angels and Christ himself watch us. How exalted is the glory, how great the joy of engaging in a contest with God presiding, of receiving a crown with Christ as judge.
Dear brethren, let us arm ourselves with all our might, let us prepare ourselves for the struggle by innocence of heart, integrity of faith, dedication to virtue.
The blessed Apostle teaches us how to arm and prepare ourselves: Put round you the belt of truth; put on the breastplate of righteousness; for shoes wear zeal for the Gospel of peace; take up the shield of faith to extinguish all the burning arrows of the evil one; take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.
Let us take this armor and defend ourselves with these spiritual defenses from heaven, so that we may be able to resist the threats of the devil, and fight back on the evil day.
Let us put on the breastplate of righteousness so that our hearts may be safeguarded, proof against the arrows of the enemy. Let our feet be protected by the shoes of the teaching of the Gospel so that when we begin to trample on the serpent and crush it, we may not be bitten and tripped up by it.
Let us with fortitude bear the shield of faith to protect us by extinguishing all the burning arrows that the enemy may launch against us.
Let us wear on our head the helmet of the spirit to defend our ears against the proclamations of death, our eyes against the sight of accursed idols, our forehead so that God’s sign may be kept intact, our lips so that our tongue may proclaim victoriously its faith in Christ its Lord.
Let us arm our right hand with the sword of the spirit so that it may courageously refuse the daily sacrifices, and like the hand – mindful of the eucharist – that receives the body of the Lord, stretch out to embrace him, and so gain from the Lord the future prize of a heavenly crown.
Dear brethren, have all this firmly fixed in your hearts. If the day of persecution finds us thinking on these things and meditating upon them, the soldier of Christ, trained by Christ’s commands and instructions, does not begin to panic at the thought of battle, but is ready for the crown of victory.
We must all remember and remind ourselves that, although enemies of the Body Of Christ have taken roost in the Vatican – We must speak the truth of the facts , in a filial and faithful Catholic manner with a love and knowledge of the everlasting power of the Papcy. In the same way that no one is above reproach on God’s green earth , no one is beyond full repentance and restoration while still alive

April 12 – Pope St. Julius I – Warrior Against Arian Heresies – On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
Through St. Athanasius, who remained in Rome several years subsequent to 339, the Egyptian monastic life became well-known in the capital, and the example of the hermits of the Egyptian deserts found many imitators in the Roman Church. Julius died on 12 April, 352, and was buried in the catacombs of Calepodius on the Aurelian Way, and, very soon after his death, was honoured as a saint. His body was later transported to S. Maria in Trastevere, the church which he had built. His feast is celebrated on 12 April.
