It’s official! Moments ago, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that President Trump will address the March for Life on Friday via a live video feed direct from the Rose Garden at the White House!
Interresting! Remember the stories about Harvy Weinstein and that PBS clown that liked to get naked in front of women co-workers? I was listening to a Bishop Fulton Sheen show where he talked about Satanic possession. He mentioned that he had talked to one of his brother priests. Sheen asked him what are some of the first signs that a person is possessed. He said love of nudity, when the priest presented the blessed sacrement in front of some the first thing they did was strip. Putting two and two together……………………………..The nudity part starts at 7:00
Akita, Japan is the site of a Marian apparition that took place in 1973 in which the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Agnes Sasagawa three times with several messages.
Sr. Sasagawa “in the convent was a very hidden soul, nobody knew about her outside of her own community and own family,” says Patrick Madrid, host of The Patrick Madrid Show on Relevant Radio®, yet the Virgin Mary chose her as the recipient of some important messages. Here are parts of the messages that Our Lady gave to Sr. Sasagawa in Akita:
July 6, 1973 – The Blessed Mother spoke to Sr. Sasagawa about her vocation and prayed with her, and then gave her this message:
“Pray very much for the Pope, Bishops, and Priests. Since your Baptism you have always prayed faithfully for them. Continue to pray very much…very much. Tell your superior all that passed today and obey him in everything that he will tell you. He has asked that you pray with fervor.”
August 3, 1973 – Our Lady of Akita implored mankind to turn away from sins and make reparation for sinners, as prayer, penance, and sacrifice could soften the Heavenly Father’s anger:
“Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates.”
“In order that the world might know His anger, the Heavenly Father is preparing to inflict a great chastisement on all mankind. With my Son I have intervened so many times to appease the wrath of the Father. I have prevented the coming of calamities by offering Him the sufferings of the Son on the Cross, His Precious Blood, and beloved souls who console Him forming a cohort of victim souls. Prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices can soften the Father’s anger. I desire this also from your community…that it love poverty, that it sanctify itself and pray in reparation for the ingratitude and outrages of so many men.”
October 13, 1973 – Pray the Rosary daily, instructed Our Lady, as a terrible punishment would come to all humanity if men do not repent. She also spoke of the things that would happen within the Church and the world as a result of the many offenses toward Our Lord:
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”
“This is not a new message, they have been repeated over and over again, certainly at Our Lady of Fatima’s apparitions in Portugal. And if you’re wondering, the apparitions in Akita were approved by the local bishop. He gave his approval of their authenticity after a significant study of the phenomena … it’s hasn’t run up the food chain to the pope—it doesn’t need to in order to be considered approved. The local bishop has the authority to do that,” says Madrid.
“I can’t help but think about that apparition in Akita, Japan, because she pretty much spelled out the situation that we’re facing today, not only in a lot of the turmoil that’s going on in the Church right now, but also in the world and the potential for a nuclear conflict,” says Madrid. “It may well be that this punishment that the Blessed Virgin Mary describes and foretells may not be a nuclear war—that’s entirely possible—to us it seems as though that would fit the bill … but it wouldn’t necessarily be that, it could be any number of things including a solar flare or it could be something we haven’t even encountered before.”
Regardless of the punishment that will befall the earth, Madrid says that we must heed Our Lady’s warning. “Let’s pay attention to what she’s saying … let’s start doing what she said, including praying the Rosary every day. It’s such a simple thing to do.”
Listen to Patrick Madrid speak about Our Lady of Akita, the current state of the world, and how Our Lady’s message may be coming to fruition:
God is invisible, but always there.
Men must believe in Him, His Heaven to share.
Talking with an Indult priest (one who says the true Mass but obeys the Church officials in Rome) I have become confused about Archbishop Lefebvre and the stand which he took in defence of the Faith. I thought he was right, but now I am not so sure. Here are some of that priest’s arguments:—
1 The Archbishop disobeyed Rome. That proves that he was proud.
2 Had he given up his Society and seminaries to obey Rome, he would have been heroic.
3 If he disobeyed Rome to save Tradition, he did evil in order to bring about good, which is wrong.
4 To obey a Pope as misguided as Pope Francis is, is a martyrdom by which one imitates Christ.
5 For Bishop Fellay to step into the jaws of the Roman lion is, in spiritual terms, heroic.
In sane times the Catholic Church gives to souls a clear direction as to what is true or false, right or wrong, and you would need to be in no confusion. But ever since the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965) these have not been sane times, because the Roman churchmen themselves at that Council abandoned God’s true Catholic religion and adopted a false man-made religion which we can call Conciliarism. So ever since the 1960’s, Catholics have been confused from top to bottom of the Church, by trying to go in two directions at once. For instance, your Indult priest says the Mass of the true religion, while meaning to obey the Romans set upon the false religion. No wonder it confuses you to listen to him. And you will remain confused until you fully grasp the difference between God’s true religion and men’s Conciliarism – God may want you to do some more homework.
A Catholic is a Catholic by the Faith he believes in, by the sacraments he receives and by the hierarchy which he obeys. But he is firstly Catholic by his Faith, without which he would hav e no concern for the Catholic sacraments or hierarchy. Therefore the Catholic Faith is fundamental to a Catholic, and it is that Faith which the Roman officials abandoned at Vatican II in order to get off the wavelength of God and onto the wavelength of modern man. Therefore Conciliarism is fundamentally different from Catholicism and it creates a quite different viewpoint from which to consider pride, heroism, obedience, and so on. The Catholic viewpoint is true, the Conciliar viewpoint is false. Now, to the Indult priest’s arguments:—
1 The Archbishop was not proud, because he was defending God’s truth and putting God before men. On the contrary, heretics like Luther and Conciliarists are proud because they are defying God to please men.
2 He was heroic not by giving way to Rome, but by resisting Rome, in order to put God first.
3 When he did what he did in order to save Tradition, he was doing not evil but good to achieve good.
4 Catholic martyrdom lies in suffering harm and death not just for any cause, but only for the true Catholic Faith. The Archbishop suffered a true martyrdom not by giving way to the Popes who had gone wrong, but by doing all he could to make them see how they were abandoning the true Faith.
5 His successors on the contrary, by doing all they can, since 2000 at least, to bring the Archbishop’s Society under the control of the Conciliar Romans, are in no terms heroic because they are putting men before God. Nor are they martyrs, nor are they truly imitating Christ, but they are indeed proud.
Dear Sir, I hope that by now you can see that everything in the Church must ultimately be judged in the light of the Truth and of the Faith. This is because a man’s faith or lack of it is his basic attitude to God. A man may choose to go to Hell if he wants, but if he wants to go to the one true Heaven of the one true God, then he must start by believing in Him, according to the true Faith.
The Carmelite monastery high in the mountains in Cody Wyoming continues to take shape. This is the real Catholic church of pre-Vatican 2 stature. How appropriate it is located in the mountains. In scripture the mountains were symbolic in communication with God. It was in the mountains where the transfiguration took place, it was the mountains that Moses was given the 10 commandments.
In the Tridentine mass the priest walks up 3 steps to the altar and the tabernacle which symbolizes the holy man going into the mountains to talk to God. Therefore it is only fitting that this truly holy place also be located in the mountains.
Below is the latest newsletter from the monks with progress on their new buildings. They are striving to make this a truly Traditional Catholic environment complete with the traditional mass.
Please consider contributing to this great cause or at least buying some fresh roasted coffee the monks make to support themselves. You can find their website here
”Doctrine and piety,” demands St Paul –
Catholics! Read and pray, or you will fall.
As the world plunges downhill, more and more people are opening their eyes and are wondering where it will end. As the Catholic Church is led resolutely downhill by a pope who seems intent only on rubbing out the last traces of the pre-Conciliar Church, more and more Catholics are opening their eyes and are driven to wondering if the Council (1962–1965) was not some kind of problem for the true Catholic Church. Then they look towards the Society of St Pius X, because it was founded in 1970 by Archbishop Lefebvre precisely to ensure the continuation of the pre-Conciliar Church, and what do they find? A group of priests more and more sympathetic to the post-conciliar Church, less and less clear on Vatican II, and sliding into the arms of the Conciliar Romans. Result? Many of these souls looking for the Truth are more confused than ever. So where are the Church and the Society of St Pius X headed in 2018?
Souls looking for the Truth must read (for instance Ralph Wiltgen’s The Rhine flows into the Tiber, or Archbishop Lefebvre’s Letter to Confused Catholics). That is how many Catholics found their way in the 1970’s and 1980’s towards the Traditional movement where they found again the true Church which they knew they had lost after the Council’s “renewal.” And in Archbishop Lefebvre (1905–1991) they found a leader with a clear and Catholic vision of what had happened at the Council – it had taken place under pressure from the modern world to conform to the world, whereas from the beginning of the Church through to the 20th century, it was always the Church that had put the world under pressure to conform itself to God. In this perspective, Vatican II represented an upheaval, a turning upside down, without precedent in all Church history, but the Council Fathers were nearly all more or less beglamoured by the modern world. It is this upheaval which set the course of th e official Church from the Council until today. And given that the enemies of God and man were behind the modern world and behind Vatican II, and given that by a just punishment of God they are now deeply entrenched within the offices of the Vatican, then in 2018, short of a miracle or of grave events intervening, the official Church will continue on its downward plunge.
And the Society of St Pius X in 2018? At the beginning of July, in six months’ time, the SSPX holds its elections for those who are to be for the following 12 years its three senior officials, the Superior General and his two Assistants. If the 40 leading priests of the Society who vote in those elections wish to continue the Society’s slide into the arms of Conciliar Rome, i.e. the official Church, then no doubt they will vote for Bishop Fellay to be Superior General so that he can finish the work of replacing the Archbishop’s clear vision of the need to resist Vatican II with his own confused visi on of blending Catholic Tradition with Vatican II, which is like blending fire with water. For just as Paul VI (1963–1978) dreamt of saving both Church and modern world by blending them in Vatican II, and almost crushed the life out of the Church by his tyrannical dream, so Bishop Fellay has drained the life out of the Society by clamping upon it his parallel dream of saving both Tradition and Council in a messianic reconciliation of his own making. The vision is quite different from the Archbishop’s. Then how will the 40 priests vote? Upon their vote depends how the Society will develop in 2018, at least from July onwards.
However, there was a reason for Vatican II, and that was the ever widening gulf between God’s true Church and modern man. The strain of holding them together became unbearable, and the Council Fathers snapped. Archbishop Lefebvre stood his Catholic ground and founded the Society, but his successors at its head have in turn snapped under the strain. T oday’s godless world surrounds all of us, and its siren charms are highly seductive. Catholics must “watch and pray” – they need to read, and to continue reading, and they must have a strong prayer life by which to cleave to God – 15 Mysteries of the Holy Rosary, every day.
I was looking for more of an historical book about St. Francis the man with less dwelling on all the flowery aspects of his sainthood. I wanted to know how Francis overcame the secular temptations given the times he lived in. This book seemed the ideal choice for that.
I am only into the third chapter and so far the book is pretty much what I was looking for. Mainly historical facts. Then some red flags started to pop up. Every time the crusades were mentioned it was with the full distaste of the author. He called them unnecessary, and brutality on both sides and basically said they were fought for money. It was apparent to me then he had no religious understanding of the evils of Islam.
For me a practicing Catholic those statements were either pure pacifism or political correctness. When I googled the Author in Wikepedia under personnel life it mentions his “husband” and thought it was a misprint. It was not, Mr. Spoto is openly gay. How can I then trust what this man puts into print about the Catholic church when already he violates one important doctrine of the Catholic faith thru sodomy. Before he condemns the Crusades Mr. Spoto needs to look into what Islam does to gay people. He more than anyone else should be a supporter of the Christian crusades!
It has only been two chapters and already I feel my Orthodox Catholic faith is being attacked thru this book. At a waste of 18 dollars, the book the reluctant saint, is now in the trash. I will not tolerate my Catholic Faith being attacked as I see it. It is bad enough given what is now occupying the chair of St. Peter.
What a shame, if the author could of only remained objective and stuck to fact without injecting his anti papal opinions every other paragraph. Back to my other choice about St. Francis, The life of St. Francis of Assisi by Saint Bonaventure by Tan Publications. At least I know this book will be solidly Catholic.
This SSPX press release outlines some of the “serious reservations” for the forthcoming beatification of Pope Paul VI, due to occur at the close of the Synod of the Family.
Communique of the SSPX’s General House on the Beatification of Pope Paul VI
On October 19, 2014, at the close of the Extraordinary Synod on the family, Pope Francis will go forward with the beatification of Pope Paul VI. The Society of St. Pius X wishes to express serious reservations concerning beatifications and canonizations of recent popes, whose rushed proceedings dispense with the wisdom of the Church’s centuries-old rules.
It is true that Paul VI was responsible for the encyclical Humanae Vitae, which letter instructed and consoled the Catholic family at a time when the most basic principles of marriage were under bitter attack. So they are again, and in a scandalous fashion, by certain members of the present Synod.
But Paul VI is also the pope who saw Vatican II to its conclusion, thereby introducing in the Church a doctrinal liberalism manifested especially in errors such as religious liberty, collegiality, and ecumenism. The result was an upheaval which he himself admitted on December 7, 1968, in the following words: “The Church is now confronted with uncertainty, self-criticism, one might almost say self-destruction. As if the Church were doing violence to Herself.” The following year he conceded: “In many areas the Council has not yet put us at peace; it has rather stirred up trouble and difficulties which are useless for reinforcing the Kingdom of God in the Church and in souls.” He went so far as to give this dire warning on July 29, 1972: “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God through some crack: doubt, incertitude, dissension, worry, discontent, and conflict are plain to see…” But he was merely stating a fact, while failing to take those measures capable of stopping the self-destruction.
Paul VI is the pope who imposed a liturgical reform of the rites of Mass and other sacraments for reasons inspired by ecumenism. Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci denounced this New Mass because it departed “significantly, on the whole and in its details, from Catholic theology of the holy Mass as formulated during the 22nd session of the Council of Trent.” Along the same lines Archbishop Lefebvre said that the New Mass was “infused with a Protestant spirit” which is a “poison inimical to the Faith.”
Under his pontificate many priests and religious were persecuted, and even condemned, for their fidelity to the Tridentine Mass. The Priestly Society of St. Pius X remembers with great sorrow the condemnation of 1976 whereby Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre found himself suspens a divinis because of his attachment to that Mass and his categorical refusal of the reforms. Only in 2007, with the issuance of Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio, was it finally admitted that the Tridentine Mass had never been abrogated.
Following in the footsteps of its founder, the Society of St. Pius X declares yet again its attachment to the Church’s 2000 year-old Tradition, convinced that such fidelity, far from vain nostalgia, in fact provides an apt remedy to the Church’s self-destruction.
From God alone comes culture that is best.
In trash must wallow the God-forsaking West.
Let us resort again to the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, for some politically incorrect common sense on the notion of “culture,” which he is taking in its broadest but real sense as the values, standards and way of life of different peoples at the national and international level. The enemies of man and God wish to homogenise all nations in a global mush which it will be that much easier for their Antichrist to dominate in the worldwide tyranny of which they dream. Almighty God, on the contrary, establishes an astonishing variety throughout His Creation, because the ordered variety of creatures best reflects His own fullness of being. But any ordered variety means a higher and a lower, in other words inequality. That is why His enemies wish to level everything down in the name of equality – “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” for example. Catholics on the contrary must wish for all creatures to be as varied and as unequal as their Creator meant them to be. Putin is in this respect on the side of Almighty God.
India, our neighbour to the left, has a population of 1.2 billion, and China has a population of 1.5 billion. As for the United States, it continues to receive more and more immigrants; and, as far as I understand, its White Christian population has recently become a minority, less than 50 percent of the total US population. What I mean to say is that the world is going through dramatic, global change. I am not saying this is good or bad, just that global changes are taking place.
You have said Russia is a vast territory – indeed. But from its western to its eastern borders , it is a Eurasian space. As regards culture, even language, language group and history, it is all undoubtedly a European space insofar as it is inhabited by people of European culture. This I say because it is what we have to preserve if we are to remain a significant centre in the world – and I do not mean that in the military sense or any other such sense. We should not divide peoples according to their ethnicity, and we should not look back in history, thinking, say, of the war between France and Russia from 1812 to 1814, rather we should look to the future for ways to build a common future and follow a common path.
This is how we can preserve Russia and its people as a global centre that is significant for relations with Asian countries and the American continent. If we fail to preserve Russia, it will be divided into minor quasi-national associations of States that would eventually lose their significance in the global sense as independent centres. If we do preserve Russia, this will be a great advantage for the development of all mankind as well, because Russia is a major part of the global culture and it certainly has to be preserved.
Indeed. A leading part of men’s culture has always been their literature, visual arts and music, because human beings of all times and in all places stand especially in need of stories, pictures and music to express and share what is going on inside them. That is why theatre and cinema which can combine all three are so influential, especially cinema today. In literature Russia boasts a number of world-famous authors: Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekov, Solzhenitsyn, etc.; in music, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, etc.; in cinema, Eisenstein and Tarkovsky have international reputations. Putin is right – thanks to Russia’s long winters and deep thinkers, his country has much to contribute to world culture that is far superior to the heap of democratic trash presently expressing what is goi ng on inside men.
Pray for Putin not to be assassinated, because God’s enemies hate him, not without reason – he is leading his country towards its Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which will put off, at least for a while, the Antichrist. May She protect him.
The book the Mosque of Notre Dame by Elena Chudinova gave us a frighten look at a Europe taken over by the brutality of Islam. The book describes how Muslim Immigrants by their sheer numbers have taken over Europe by infiltrating European governments and business. In the Europe Chudinova predicted there are only 3 places safe from Muslim brutality, Poland, the Greek monastery on the island of Mt. Athos, and Russia. Nations who kept their Christian faith.
We are seeing it played out today. The mayor of London England is Islamic, in the United States a judge was sworn into office on the Koran. No go zones in Sweden and Germany are cropping up every where. These are areas so infested by Islamic savages that the “infidel” entering would be easily murdered. Like the plague Islam is festering through the world oozing its Koran venom.
Are there any safe places left that are either free from Islam or extremely limited. The answer is yes, in the nations that did not abandon God and have clung to their Catholic and Orthodox roots.
The weapon the Poles used, our Lady’s sword, is the same weapon Catholics used to turn the tide at the battle of Lepanto. The Christian fleet was faced with a far superior Islamic navy but it was our Lady’s rosary that tipped the balance towards Christianity and gave Catholic Europe a great military victory.
What of the nations that have turned their backs on God. Its obvious, their culture and their nations are being stolen from them by the Islamics and they will eventually wind up as Muslim slaves.
A few examples of nations that have turned their back on God:
Sweden; They continually twist and distort the true faith. The church of Sweden has just proclaimed that the SON of God, Jesus Christ was not a man and in fact according to their Social Justice warriors he has been neutered and is now gender neutral. Sweden now suffers the worst of the savage Islamic attacks on their women.
Germany: From the land of the insurgent Martin Luther and a rapidly decreasing Catholic population comes a high rate of Islamic savagery.
Italy: Even the Italians are not exempt from Islamic take over. But what can be expected from a nation that houses the Socialist in the chair of St. Peter. Bergoglio embraces Islam in defiance of the one true faith. With Catholics dwindling, churches are closing and what is becoming of them? Many are sold to the Islamic’s to be used as mosques. This is nothing more than pure desecration of the house of our Lord. In many cases the church could of sold the buildings to the Society of St. Pius X but they refused preferring instead to stomp out where ever they could any vestige of the true mass.
What is our fate here in the United States? Personally I think we have been granted a reprieve. The name of that reprieve is Donald J Trump, a truly Christian leader. I am convinced he came in answer to all our prayers and he is returning the nation back to her Christian roots after 16 horrible years of Atheistic rule. First 8 years of George Bush, who pretended he was Christian, then another 8 of Barack Obama titular head of the Atheist party of America, i.e. the Democates who, as you recall, booed God at their 2012 convention.
But now we have a truly Christian leader. A man who values and protects the life of the unborn. A man who’s personal dislike of political correctness has brought Merry Christmas back to the nation. A man who stands against the Islamification of the United States. God in heaven is smiling on us, for the time being. We are now at the turning point, either we firmly get behind President Trump and help return our nation to her Christian roots or we go back to the atheistic ways of the past 16 years. If we go back then the future does not look well for us. It will be the future painted for us in the book the Mosque of Notre Dame.
