Have we truly arrived to a SCHISM?
As always, it is very important in these times of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, to not only pray much and to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC), but to keep our eyes open so as not to fall into the beautiful lies of Satan presented as if they were the Truth!!!
A friend of mine recently showed me a synthesis of a conference given by Padre Santiago Martin, F.M., entitled Love, Truth and Mercy, May 2014. I found this article on several Italian web sites, a few of which added the subtitle: Have we truly arrived to a SCHISM?
I have translated this article into English to help people realize the gravity of the situation. Very few Catholics today realize the great devastation that will be caused if it becomes widely accepted, or even officially approved, what Cardinal Kasper proposes, as well as many bishops and cardinals in agreement with Cardinal Kasper who have been promoted in the last three years, such as the new General Secretary of the Italian Episcopal Conference, Monsignor Nunzio Galantino, and the new Archdiocese of Chicago, Monsignor Blase Cupich. Cardinal Burke who stanchly explained that you cannot change Church Doctrine, the Truth, Who is Christ, was demoted.
Our Lady of Akita, Japan (1973), told us: The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see CARDINALS OPPOSING CARDINALS, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise

This article by Padre Santiago Martin explains well that what Cardinal Kasper is proposing is totally contrary to the constant teaching of the Catholic Church.
After following what has been going on in the Church in the last three years and the great confusion in the Catholic Church, as well as the fact that the bishops promoted in the last three years are basically along the lines of Cardinal Kasper, and the bishops who do not think like Kasper, such as Cardinal Burke, have been demoted, my eyes are wide open while I wait to see what will be published in the Apostolic Exhortation on the Family at the end of this month.
Satan, the father of lies (Jn 8:44), says lies or says the truth when it serves his purposes at the moment he decides. Normally people assume that people generally say the truth and thus we are vulnerable to liars and manipulators. It is the nature of a good mother to assume the best about her child, while the good father should protect the child from the poison of lies. If everyone did as Satan, there would be totally chaos in a free society; in hell there is forced order. Jesus said: You will know them by their fruits (Mt 7:15-20; Lk 6:44). Jesus did NOT say, You will know them by their leaves, which would be their nice words! From the highest leaders in the Catholic Church we have heard contradictory statements recently. Cardinal Kasper, and bishops like him have been encouraged and promoted recently.
Cardinal Müller Reasserts Church's Teaching on Divorce-Remarriage; In a Feb. 27 (2016) interview with Cologne diocesan radio, Cardinal Müller stressed that the indissolubility of the marital bond is a dogma and that there cannot be a second marriage. Pope Francis nominated Cardinal Müller as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. (http://www.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/cardinal-mller-reasserts-churchs-teaching-on-divorce-remarriage).
So now we can relax and put our guard down!
My eyes are wide open for the words and phrases that will be used in the forthcoming Apostolic Exhortation. In the past, at least up to three years ago, the Church has always been very careful to not use ambiguous words and phrases in such important documents. Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2Cor 11:14)! Where are the true pastors ready to loose their titles, prestige, money and life to protect the sheep from the hidden but powerful poison of the nice lies, presented as the truth, by our adversary, the devil, who prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour (1Pet 5:8-9)?!?
If I were Satan, I would gently and silently facilitate the slide down the slippery slope toward the acceptance and even the denial of sin, and at the same time I would make to look ridiculous or hypocritical and vilify, in a covert way, the few who hold to the true teachings of the Catholic Church, the uncomfortable Truth which truly sets us free (Jn 8:32). If I were Satan, the true Catholics should be labeled as ridged and old-fashioned, insensitive, lacking in compassion, divisive, judgmental, moralists, and above all lacking in mercy in this Year of Mercy! This is no new strategy, but it works, especially when, by now, the great majority in the Catholic Church have allowed themselves to slide into the easy and gratifying way of relativism.
Precisely at this moment Cardinal Müller reasserts Church's teaching on divorce-remarriage! Why was this not reasserted clearly and without confusion before and during the two Synods on the Family? Why did Cardinal Burke say after the Synod in October 2014: Many have expressed their concerns to me. At this very critical moment, there is a strong sense that the Church is like a ship without a rudder? Why was the book, Remaining in the Truth of Christ, in defense of marriage, by five cardinals, not allowed into the Synod of Bishops in October 2014?!? Why did Our Lady of Good Success warn us (January 20, 1610), that when the Sacrament of Matrimony will be attacked and deeply profaned in our century, in this supreme moment of need for the Church, the ONE who should speak will fall silent!?!? (The Woman Clothed With The Sun In Search Of The Little Ones; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/02/children-of-woman.html).
I have also translated the THIRD meditation of Don Stefano Gobbi, of June 2003. During the International Spiritual Exercises, at Collevalenza Sanctuary of Merciful Love (Madre Speranza), June 29 July 5, 2003, Don Stefano Gobbi offered to over 200 priests and to over 10 bishops of the Marian Movement of Priests the following meditation. This is the THIRD of four meditations given by Don Stefano Gobbi during this week of Spiritual Exercises.

Note: the dates indicate when a message was given to Don Stefano Gobbi which can be found in the Blue Book, To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons. (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/).
Many bishops have given their Imprimatur to this book. You will find in these messages of Our Lady revealed through Don Stefano Gobbi a resemblance to the writings of Saint Louis de Montfort, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and to the messages of Our Lady of Fatima, with the sweetness that only the Mother of God, and the Mother of each us, could communicate to those open to the caresses of Our Lady!
The Bishop of Como, Italy, Msgr. Diego Coletti, according to the Norm of Can. 322 sec. 1 and 2 CIC, approved the Statutes of the Association of the Marian Movement of Priests and conferred on this association the Juridical Personality, July 10, 2013. (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/2015/10/our-lady-priests-prologue.html)

Also, below in the APPENDIX, I have included many Web sites of articles that I found or that were sent to me by friends. As I wrote above, it is so important to struggle to seek the uncomfortable truth in these times of great confusion, to seek to put the pieces of the puzzle together so as to realize how we are being led, in a very subtle and clever way, where we do not want to go. Today there are a great number of followers of the father of lies (Jn 8:44), Satan!
Cardinal Burke urges Catholics to storm heaven with monthly Rosary to lift Church from confusion (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/cardinal-burke-promotes-campaign-to-storm-heaven-with-monthly-rosary-to-lif).
As I wrote on my index blog (https://josephdwight.wordpress.com/2015/09/21/joseph-dwight-index/): I do not think it was by chance that when Pope John Paul II was asked toward the end of his life to offer one verse from the entire Bible for the people of God, he responded without hesitation: THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE (Jn 8:32; Jer 6:16)! Father, Sanctify them in the truth (Jn 17:17)! The Truth, tied to the cross of Jesus here on earth, is uncomfortable!
Do not believe the nice lie of Satan that it is easy to arrive to heaven, or that heaven is automatic or that hell does not exist! Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell (Diary of Saint Faustina, 741). If a person freely chooses in this short life to not trust God and to not seek the Truth from their Creator (Ignorance is bliss!), at death, God does not send this person to hell; this person freely throws himself/herself into hell so as not to spend eternity with the eternal Truth Who is God in heaven. After death, there are only two places that exist for all eternity: a place where there is God, and a place where there is not God! The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs (CCC 1035)!
There is no other way to heaven than the way of Jesus Christ, who went to Calvary, who suffered more than we can possibly imagine, and died on the cross for each of us. Do we think that we have found a better and easier way without the cross?!? I thank Thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21).
But it is impossible to follow Jesus Christ without the help of Jesus Christ! The saints tell us very simply: Those who pray will be saved; those who do not pray will be damned! The choice is ours to put a priority on spending time each day with Jesus and Mary in prayer and before the Eucharist, or to put a priority on everything else. If something or someone is important to us, we find time for that something or for that person. God, Who is love, will respect this choice, even if we want to remain immature babies all our life believing that God will judge us as immature babies without any responsibility. If we do not have time for God in this short life, we will not have time for God for all eternity!
Saint Padre Pio said: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS." This saint also said: The ROSARY is the weapon for these times!
Go to CONFESSION REGULARLY, otherwise you will end up as so many Catholics today who believe and live as if there is no sin, as if Christ died on the cross for amusement! There are so many sacrilegious Holy Communions today, with very few going to confession and almost everyone going to Holy Communion at Holy Mass. So many priests and bishops no longer guard the flock from the nice lies of the wolf, Satan, and do not talk about sin and the consequences of sin according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC), but rather according to the prince of the world (Jn 12:31; 14:30), the father of lies (Jn 8:44)! Beautiful lies presented as if they were the truth are always easier than the Truth crucified on the cross! But the Truth crucified on the cross in this short life, after death, will shine with an unimaginable splendor for all eternity!
The responsibility of fathers of families, priests and bishops is very great; pray for them that they might live their God-given vocations for the salvation of the eternal souls entrusted to them. I have a great sorrow in my heart for souls entrusted to fathers of Catholic families, to priests and to bishops, who do not live nor teach the true Catholic faith well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC)! Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2Cor 11:14)! Where are the real Christian men who reveal and warn about these very numerous wolves in sheeps clothing today, at the risk of being ostracized, ridiculed and persecuted, for the good of the souls entrusted to them? The TV today portrays men as misfits, awkward, cowards, wimps, womanizers, philanderers, skirt chasers, milksop, namby-pambys, sissies, OR arrogant one-man saviors like Rambo or Arnold Schwarzenegger who are seeking the glory before men (Lk 6:26; Jn 12:43; 5:44) and thus are not instruments of God but of themselves!
Where are the real Christian women who inspire the men in their God-given vocation (not according to the world) instead of seducing them and ridiculing them and manipulating them as we see continually in our mass media today?!? Saint Monica did not have the greatest husband nor the greatest son, but persevering in her God-given vocation as a wife and as a mother, with much prayers and sacrifices and tears, her husband converted before dying and her son became the great Saint Augustine, doctor of the Church!
Only with sincere (THY will be done, not MY will be done!) persevering prayer is it possible to live our God-given vocations according to God, not according to the world and the very powerful mass media today! Satan does all he can to mess up, to mix up, to upset the God-given vocations of the priests, of the lay people, of the family, of man and of woman, pitting one against the other, using his various diabolical groups to destroy the family, such as the Freemasons, secular feminism, the secular mass media and the like. We desperately need the gift of the vocation of the other person beside us, to be able to fulfill our own vocations; the vocations from God are complimentary so as to build up the Body of Christ (1Cor 12)! The husband needs his wife, the heart of the family, to be inspired by his wife. The wife needs her husband, the head of the family, who receives from God the graces of his vocation to not only to guide and to provide for the family, but to have the opportunity to offer his life, not for a false ideal offered by the continual bombardment of the mass media today, but for a genuine eternal ideal in protecting his wife and children and the society from the sugar-coated poison of the beautiful lies of our invisible adversary the devil who prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour (1Pet 5:8). How many husbands have such a wife who patiently inspires him in his vocation so that he has the help and strength to persevere in such a contaminated world so as to have the courage to say: let us turn off the TV and let us pray together as a family the Rosary, the spiritual television (Pope Paul VI; Angelus, October 3, 1976)?
The parishioners need the human instrument of the gift of guidance and of the life giving Sacraments, THE PRIEST; and the priest needs the parishioners to have the opportunity to give his life for Jesus in each parishioner and for the Body of Christ, the Church, as Christ did for each of us, and for His spouse, the Church. No one can substitute for the gift of the vocation of the other. Thus is it very important to inspire, to confirm, to have patience, to appreciate, to enjoy, to pray much for the other persons and to encourage the vocation of each person which helps to build up each other, the family and the society, instead of tearing down each other, the family and society. Behold the hidden strategy of our mortal enemy, Satan!
Do we believe that God gave us the Ten Commandments for our good or for our harm? Do good parents give rules to their children for the good of their children or to harm their children? Do we trust God or do we trust ourselves or the world? If children are led to mistrust their parents and legitimate authority by the TV, they will automatically trust the messages of the world; the prince of the world is Satan (Jn 12:31; 14:30)! Have we as adults remained spoiled arrogant children or have we learned to trust our heavenly Father by way of much prayer and sacrifice? When a good priest leads, with his example and then with his words, the parishioners toward Calvary to live in an authentic way the Gospel explained by the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults, and then some parishioners telephone the bishop to complain, how many bishops today back up the good pastor to help the parishioners overcome the lack of human and Christian maturity, probably not received from their fathers during the formative years from 1 to 12 years of age?!?
But even though our culture today offers us many justifications and motives and excuses to remain spoiled arrogant children in our closed egoism, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE, just as there was for Saint Augustine and for all the saints, as long as we are alive and willing to humbly confess our sins (according to Gods laws) and as long as we are willing to sincerely pray especially before the infinite God in the tabernacle with the help of the Mother of God with her Rosary!
My Cardinal, along with the young auxiliary bishop of my diocese, took away my parish last October 13, 2015. A great number of parishioners today are used to Christianity without the cross; when I explained simply and clearly that this does not lead to heaven for eternity, a few of them telephoned the bishop, and the bishop took their side without speaking with me. The bishop was not happy when I told him that all my homilies are recorded and many of them are on YouTube. As I wrote above, I have a great sorrow in my heart for the souls entrusted to such bishops and priests! I like this date of my dismissal from the parish, exactly two years before the centenary of the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun, October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal! Among other things, this auxiliary bishop on October 9, 2014 wrote to me the following: 3) You cite the bible and the CCC, but you also cite prophecies and private revelations. These things do not regard the faith and cannot be imposed on anyone! Do not cause confusion, neither in the preaching, nor in your head. (The Hidden Broad Road to Perdition; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/05/road-perdition.html).
In my homily on November 1, 2013 at the cemetery of my parish, I gave a few scoldings to the people when I say that at that Mass at the cemetery of the parish, there were more than 100 people, but at the Sunday Mass, there were less than 20. I said to them: For the Mamma or the Grandmother here at the cemetery, more than 100 people, but for Jesus Who gave you your Mamma and your Grandmother and all the rest, less than 20 people at the Sunday Mass; it seems to me that it has become a religion of the dead instead of the living. Without gratitude, there is no salvation! The Sunday after this homily at the cemetery, a couple of parishioners gave me a scolding. As a response to this, I put on the bulletin board outside of the church the following (in Italian): Attirare la Gente, a Chi? (http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/01/attirare-la-gente-chi.html). To listen to the actual homily at the cemetery on November 1, 2013, in Italian, visit: Omelia Don Jo 131101 Tutti Santi Lisciano https://youtu.be/OhcOkeUhmsA
If a good father of a family tries to lead the children with his example toward a healthy self-discipline in following Christ, but his wife tells the children that this is not necessary and is exaggerated, who will the children believe and follow? If a good pastor offers the authentic teaching of the Church and the five or six priests in the area criticize this good pastor while they offer a Christianity without the cross, who will the parishioners believe and follow, especially if the bishop backs up these five or six priests? Behold the fundamental strategy to destroy: divide and conquer!
When our Lord said, What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder (Mt 19:6), the disciples said to Jesus: If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is not expedient to marry (Mt 19:10). The disciples knew what Jesus was saying. THIS IS HARD! Do you know what the divorce rate was in the USA in 1960? Five percent! Were human beings different then? What was it that made 95% of the marriages stay together until death? Now you look at it and you say who could possibly expect today to stay together until death!?! Even though many who stayed together years ago would have divorced if they lived today, those who stayed together years ago, when the spouse died, they sobbed like babies. So the Church basically says yes, we recognize that those terrible things happen. But unfortunately when you open the door to divorce, EVERYBODY WANTS TO RUN THROUGH IT!
A fundamental strategy of Satan in this period is to offer false love, false mercy and misguided compassion. Certainly if a child is struggling with certain difficulties, it is good for the mother to comfort the child. But the ultimate solution is not to comfort the child for his whole life but to lead the child toward the real and lasting solution, to follow Jesus Christ to Calvary, with Mary at his side. We are all dust, as we hear on Ash Wednesday: Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return! If the father of the family, or if the pastor of the parish, does not lead the children or the parishioners, by good example and then by word, to the one true God Who alone can give strength to overcome our difficulties, what can dust do to help a child or a parishioner? Behold the cult of man today, which puts man and the love of man before God and before the love of God! If the wife does not support the good husband, or the bishop does not support the good pastor, who will lead these people to the One true Solution, the Way, and the Truth, and the Life (Jn 14:6)? If the father of the family leads the children with his example of true love according to the Gospel and not love according to the TV, which includes the authority of the father as head of the family, then the children will much more easily and happily accept the loving authority of Jesus Christ who is not a weak or arrogant wimp as the mass media today portrays Christ and men in general.
When priests and bishops and lay people, who are immersed in the cult of man, see a priest who follows the old ways, they say, he is not like us, the majority, therefore he has a problem; their question is whether this priest is like us, their question is NOT if this priest is like those who follow the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults!!! The Truth, Who is God, does not change! Behold the great pressure exercised on those who do not conform to relativism, to put them in line with political correctness, with the great majority in the cult of man today, a Christianity without the cross which does not lead to the true eternal resurrection, but rather to the true eternal damnation in hell, whether the creature believes hell exists or not!!! After death there are only two place that last for eternity: a place where there is the Immutable Truth, God, and a place where there is not the Immutable Truth, God, but the father of lies! God, Who is Love, does not force anyone to spend eternity with the Truth Who is God! Whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven (Mt 10:33)!
Those who pray sincerely, which means THY will be done, not MY will be done, put Christ before themselves as model and realize how much is needed to imitate Christ. Those who do NOT pray sincerely, and do not truly desire to discover what God desires, end up putting themselves as the model and go around seeking to put others in line according to their mindset, the dictatorship of relativism!
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold (Dan 3:1). Today the idol is the cult of man behind which is Satan to be worshiped and adored!
When a pastor of a nearby parish continued relentlessly to try to draw me back into this cult of man after I left his parish, I tried to explain to him that he did not live his ideal of the Focolare Movement to make yourself one with the other (farsi uno), which means to seek to understand the other persons thoughts and point of view, as Chiara Lubich explained in order to offer true love. But a great number of people in the FOCOLARE MOVEMENT have put aside the uncomfortable Truth so as to love, while deceiving themselves and others because they do not truly embracing Jesus Forsaken, which is a fundamental point of the spirituality of unity of Chiara Lubich!?! Do they realize that this is false love that in the end does great harm to the ones they claim to love?!? Finally when this did not work with this pastor, I accused him of being like the fascists before WWII who said (according to the Italians): EAT AND SHUT UP! (Mangia e stai zitto!). I said to him that you do not want to understand my thoughts and you do not want to read my articles on the Web which have many references to the documents of the Church, but you tell me to come to your parish festivals, to eat, but shut up, like a slave in the house who can eat, but his thoughts and words are not worth anything! I think he finally understood a little, enough to at least back off a little. (The Hidden Broad Road to Perdition; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/05/road-perdition.html).
When even the apostles at the beginning of their walk with Christ were amazed and even exceedingly astonished at the uncompromising words of Christ (Mk 10: 23-27), Christ did not do as the men (wimps) that we see on TV today. Instead He said: With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible (Mt 19:26; Mk 10:27; Lk 18:27).
Precisely at a turning point in the conversion of Saint Augustine (Confessions, VIII, 12), when he was inspired to open the Bible at random, he read: But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires (Rom 13:14). How many fathers of families (priests and bishops) today, formed by the culture of relativism today instead of by a good Christian father, and not inspired by a good wife who overcame secular feminism, do not live this verse of Saint Paul and thus do not help their children to make the same conversion as did Saint Augustine and all of the saints? Saint Francis of Assisi called his body brother ass, indicating how he lived Romans 13:14. This widespread lack of good wholesome fathers is at the root of the feminized Church of the Nice that we have today as well as the increase of homosexuality and the slide into false ecumenism which will lead to the One World Church as a preparation for the advent of the Antichrist.
Our Lady at Akita, Japan said (October 13, 1973): The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise (The FALSE POPE - Saint Hildegard; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html).
Contrary to the lies of the prince of the world, Satan (Jn 12:31; 14:30), heaven is not automatic but hell is automatic for those who do not engage in this spiritual battle. The whole of mans history has been the story of dour combat with the powers of evil (CCC 409)! Dead bodies float downstream; to get to heaven one must continually swim upstream in this short life of DOUR COMBAT! One must struggle to seek the uncomfortable crucified Truth on the cross in the midst of much confusion and false easy truths all around us today, and then live this Truth with much prayer, especially the Rosary, and with the help of the Sacraments and frequent adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament. One must persevere in prayer; at the beginning it is more difficult but as time goes on, as with any sincere relationship, our relationship deepens with Jesus and Mary, and time spent with Jesus and Mary even becomes a real delight and the most beautiful and enriching moments of our day. I took the advice of the Servant of God, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, over 15 years ago and began spending at least one hour everyday before the Most Blessed Sacrament in church. What a great gift!
The truth shall make you free (Jn 8:32)! The beautiful lies of the father of lies will apparently make you free today but will make you slaves tomorrow and, after death, for all eternity, even if you do not believe that heaven or hell exist! God establishes the reality after death, not the very numerous false gods, the relativists! In heaven there is room for one God; hell is full of gods who did not seek Truth or reality outside of their own finite heads! In the end, each of us, according to our choices we freely make in this short life, will spend eternity under a benevolent dictatorship of love or under a malevolent dictatorship of total slavery! The Truth (of God!) will make you free!

The following are some references, video clips and articles, that I found (or from friends), which indicate the various hidden strategies and also a few prophecies for our times. When we come to realize how much we are by now totally under the control of those who do not believe in God and have offered their services and lives to the father of lies (Jn 8:44), we must not despair! WE have given this power to the forces of evil because today, more than ever before, there is less sincere prayer in the world and in the Church and more sin and a great disregard for Gods holy laws! But as long as we are alive, there is always hope, hope to ask forgiveness for our sins. For Catholics with the great benefit of the Sacraments, make a good sacramental confession; do not wait for the ILLUMINATION OF THE CONSCIENCES (see below), otherwise you may not have the grace to repent, and might easily despair, when you see all at once, by an interior revelation, the great gravity of your sins before God.
Jesus revealed to Saint Faustina: Before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice (Diary, 1146; see also no. 367, 848, 1160, 1506).
Make a good examination of conscience not according to your heads formed by subjectivism and relativism that totally surrounds us today, but by the objective truth and laws of God, summarized very well for Catholics in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults. The Truth, Who is God, does not change with the whims and times of the world which is governed by the prince of the world, Satan (Jn 12:31; 14:30).
For us Catholics, who have received much more than non Catholics, we must take advantage of what we can receive in the Sacraments. We must spend as much time as possible on your knees before the Most Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacles in the Catholic churches, pray the Holy Rosary, and meditate often on the Passion of Christ!
Saint Padre Pio said: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS." This saint also said: The ROSARY is the weapon for these times!
The Dream of St. John Bosco, of the two pillars indicates to us the great importance of staying very close to Jesus in the Eucharist (while it is still possible) with our Rosary in hand.

Ratzinger's forgotten prophesy on the future of the Church A week after Benedict XVI's shock announcement, an important statement he once made comes to light A restructured Church with far fewer members that is forced to let go of many places of worship it worked so hard to build over the centuries. A minority Catholic Church with little influence over political decisions, that is socially irrelevant, left humiliated and forced to start over. But a Church that will find itself again and be reborn a simpler and more spiritual entity thanks to this enormous confusion. This was the prophesy made 40 years ago on the future of Christianity by a young Bavarian theologian, Joseph Ratzinger. Digging it out again today perhaps provides us with another key to understanding Benedict XVI's decision to resign, because it traces his gesture back through the course of his interpretation of history

One of the greatest forces working to DESTROY THE FAMILY and society is radical feminism. The goals of feminism are: the destruction of patriarchy; control of reproduction including contraception, abortion, and reproductive technologies; destruction of the fatherheaded family with divorce and illegitimacy made normal; all women in the workforce, no man able to support his family and free 24 hour day care; destruction of all-male institutions; total sexual liberation including sex for children, homosexuality, and bisexuality; destruction of worship of God as father.

SYLVESTER BERRY 1921 NIHIL OBSTAT IMPRIMATUR ANTICHRIST AND HIS POWER "It is a very general opinion that Antichrist will set himself up as the Messias. This opinion seems to be supported by the words of our Saviour: I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive (Jn. 5:43; see also 1 Jn. 2:18). This pretension as Messias will make it necessary that he spring from the Jewish race."

THE PLANS OF SATAN - the Programme of Antichrist - IMPRIMATUR "The first and obvious duty the priest owes to the world about him is service to the Truth, the whole Truth, the unmasking and refutation of error in whatever form or disguise it conceals itself." "The kingship of Christ" Imprimatur: 1953 "Satan spreads perplexity and disorder in minds by confusing the "false tolerance of Liberalism," by which equal rights are granted to truth and error.." "Jewish Naturalistic (Global Zionism) opposition to Christ the King is keeping Catholics blind to the danger that is arising from the clever extension of the term Anti-Semitism, with all its war-connotation in the minds of the unthinking, to include any form of opposition to the Jewish Nations naturalistic aims. For the leaders of the Jewish Nation, to stand for the rights of Christ the King is logically to be anti-Semitic.' "In the work of elimination of the supernatural life from society, the Jewish nation has been powerfully aided by Freemasonry." "A day will come when the Jewish Nation will cease to oppose order and will turn in sorrow and repentance to Him Whom they rejected before Pilate. That will be a glorious triumph for the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Until that day dawns, however, their naturalistic opposition to the True Supernatural Order of the world must be exposed and combated."

Has the Synod Opened a Door to LGBT Inclusion? "We must force our way through!" "QUEST" - is a 'Catholic' LGBT activist group ran by leading activist Vincent Cardinal Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, (who is being considered as a candidate to head a Vaticans new dicastery, which will be responsible for Laity, Family and Life.) Pertaining to the previous synod: "...the bishops avoidance of the subject in the final document is a sign that they recognize the need for further "real engagement".. and Cardinal Kasper has said that although there has been no change in doctrine or the rules on communion for the divorced and remarried, nevertheless, "doors have been opened." "Taken together, we may conclude that at least for British lesbian and gay Catholics, a door has opened up a crack. It is now up to us to force the opening wider, and make our way through it." Comment: Well, if you can't do things the right way I guess you "force your way through the "back-door" - pardon the pun! This is exactly what these heretical "progressive" Bishops are doing!

Who are the "advisors" who shaped the Popes New Encyclical??? One papal "advisor" is Professor Schellnhuber: a major voice calling for massive reduction in wait for it human population. In 2009, he articulated the commonly held opinion of the scientific left that the only solution for planet earth will be the elimination of all but one billion of the human population. The New York Times reported on his speech at an international climate meeting in Copenhagen, where he said it is a triumph for science that they have stabilized the estimate: namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people. At that time, Herr Schellnhuber declined to specify a methodology for achieving this. (These so called "advisors" and their ideologies are the main reason why this encyclical is unprecedented in Church History. And that's NOT a good thing! Ungodly advice from ungodly advisors.. sounds not like a Pope but more like Martin Luther!! God save the Church!)

"Extreme Environmentalism is the New World Religion!" God commanded man to go forth and subdue the earth, and to multiply.. Jesus said that if anyone harms a child or encourages others to do so it would have been better for that man NOT TO HAVE BEEN BORN! But no where does He say "saving the planet" is even at the top of the list! After all God will renew the heavens and the face of the earth with a touch of His hand, the blink of His eye, the wind of His breath --- in an instant!! And then there's the Church... This article says a lot about the direction the Church is headed.. -Every Socialists dream! We have been warned through the centuries and most especially through our Holy Mother that Satan would infiltrate the Church to its very summit and his plan to dethroned Christ would be subtle.. So subtle in fact he would take 2/3rds of the Church with him. This new twist and turn for the Church would be wrapped in the cloak of "Environmentalism!" "Extreme Environmentalism is the New World Religion!"

Cardinal Biffi at the Annual Lenten Retreat for the Pope and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007), quoted Vladimir Soloviev, a Russian philosopher, who died in the year 1900 with great acumen, had prophesied the tragedies of the 20th century. In the Tale of the Antichrist, recalled the cardinal, THE ANTICHRIST PRESENTS HIMSELF AS PACIFIST, ECOLOGIST AND ECUMENIST.

Several seers tell us that there will be a Great Warning. God will give to men warnings and prodigious signs to shake them from their spiritual torpor; the illumination of the consciences (http://profezie3m.altervista.org/ptm_c2-3.htm)
TESTIMONY OF CONCHITA (Garabandal; September 14, 1965): The Warning is something that comes directly from God. It will be visible in the whole world, in every place in which one finds himself. It will be an interior revelation to each of us about our sins. The believers as well as the non believers and the people of every religion, will see it and will feel it.
With his divine love, He will open the doors of hearts and illuminate all consciences. Every person will see himself in the burning fire of divine truth. It will be like a judgment in miniature (Message to Don Stefano Gobbi, May 22, 1988). What will come to pass is something so very great that it will exceed anything that has taken place since the beginning of the world. It will be like a judgment in miniature, and each one will see his own life and all he has done in the very light of God (Message to Don Stefano Gobbi, October 2, 1992).

There are various indications that the peace promised by Our Lady of Fatima will be fulfilled one the centenary of the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun, October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal, which will be October 13, 2017!
The last part of the homily of Pope Benedict XVI; Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima; before 500,000 people: 13 May 2010: WE WOULD BE MISTAKEN TO THINK THAT FATIMAS PROPHETIC MISSION IS COMPLETE. At a time when the human family was ready to sacrifice all that was most sacred on the altar of the petty and selfish interests of nations, races, ideologies, groups and individuals, our Blessed Mother came from heaven, offering to implant in the hearts of all those who trust in her the Love of God burning in her own heart. At that time it was only to three children, yet the example of their lives spread and multiplied, especially as a result of the travels of the Pilgrim Virgin, in countless groups throughout the world dedicated to the cause of fraternal solidarity. MAY THE SEVEN YEARS WHICH SEPARATE US FROM THE CENTENARY OF THE APPARITIONS HASTEN THE FULFILMENT OF THE PROPHECY OF THE TRIUMPH OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, TO THE GLORY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY.
(http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/homilies/2010/documents/hf_ben-xvi_hom_20100513_fatima_en.html; http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/fatimas-prophetic-mission-not-complete-pope-declares-on-solemnity/). The centenary of the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun, October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal, will be October 13, 2017! I believe that soon the Body of Christ, the Church, as a great purification, will have to go through the stage of the crucifixion as her Head, Christ, three hours on the cross, and even cry out with her Head: My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me? (Mt 27:46; Mc 15:34; Rev 13:7). This period will be the GREATEST TRIBULATION in the history of the world and of the Church (Mt 24:21-22; Jer 30:7; Dan 12:1). Let us make a good confession and changer our lives, with much prayer and sacrifices and good will, while the door of Mercy is still open. Jesus to Saint Faustina: BEFORE I COME AS A JUST JUDGE, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice (Diary, 1146). Jesus said to Saint Faustina (of the Divine Mercy): YOU WILL PREPARE THE WORLD FOR MY FINAL COMING (Diary of Saint Faustina, 429). (The FALSE POPE - Saint Hildegard;

During a vision in 1820, it was revealed to Blessed Anna Caterina Emmerick that Satan would be freed from his chains about 80 years before the year 2000; thus toward the end of the 1910s of the twentieth century. This period of freedom for the fallen seraph would last one century. Pope Leo XIII saw that unusual dialogue on October 13. What comes to mind? Satan was liberated October 13, 1917, the day of the last apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, when there was the miracle of the sun, and Our Lady promised that my Immaculate Heart will triumph! This will correspond to the fulfillment of the Proto-Gospel (Gen 3:15) when the woman will crush the head of the serpent in a definitive final way, as St. Louis de Montfort explains in his classical book: True Devotion to Mary. I believe that in a certain sense the Body of Christ will pass the stages of the life of Jesus. It is interesting that Pope Leo XIII (who by the way was the bishop of my diocese, Perugia, for 32 years!) saw that dialogue exactly 33 years before the miracle of the sun at Fatima; Jesus lived 33 years and finished His life on the cross, when Satan, in His pride, believed to have defeated Christ! I believe that we (the Church) are already in the passion of Jesus if not already on the cross. Regarding this period of great crisis, Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi: MY ADVERSARY WILL ONE DAY THINK THAT HE IS CELEBRATING A COMPLETE VICTORY: over the world, over the Church, over souls. It will be only then that I will intervene terrible and victorious that his defeat may be all the greater when he is certain in his conviction that he has conquered once for all. What is in preparation is so extraordinary that its like has never happened since the creation of the world. That is why everything has already been predicted in the Bible. The terrible struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the Red Dragon (Rev 12), Satan, who has now succeeded in seducing many souls (October 18, 1975).

In the prophetic dreams and visions of THERESE NEUMANN, she indicated the maximum power and dominion of the satanic incarnations over a period she calls "the age of Cain", which covers the years between 1999 and 2017. She said exactly that: "...The great wound will open in 1999 and it will bleed for eighteen years: this will be the time of Cain".
We will know soon ... March 19 Pope Francis signs the post-Synod Exhortation ...
Will the post-Synod Exhortation Pope Francis signs on March 19th be a new passage of this process of auto-demolition? Will he confirm the Churchs doctrine or will he deviate on some points from the perennial Magisterium? And if this is the case, how should Catholics act? These are the urgent questions on the table. Questions that demand all the attention an intelligence illuminated by grace is capable of.
Hail Mary, full of grace .........
bump to read later
Catholics elected a socialist (AKA Commie) as their latest Pope. Is it any wonder their church is falling apart.
We’ve survived bad popes before, we’ll do it again.
Then again maybe you won’t.
Anti-Semitic passage. What is Free Republic coming to???
It takes brass to accuse Jews of naturalism when the Catholic Church has done more to spread evolutionism and higher criticism throughout the religious world than any other group in history. It also takes a lot of guff to accuse the Jews of opposing the messianic kingdom when the whole Catholic "social kingdom" thing is a non-literal repudiation of a genuine literal G-dly messianic kingdom.
It's too bad you ruined your post with this passage. Everything else was spot on, but you just couldn't resist.
Don’t want to insult any Catholic on the list. After all, this is your backyard fight. But maybe it might be time to go back to the Bible and see what the Lord says about morals, etc.
It’s particularly offensive because it quotes Teresa Neumann - the spiritual advisor of Fritz Gerlich, who was martyred by the Nazis for his philoSemitism and open contempt of National Socialism.
There is a lot to read in the post, and truth.
However, I was concerned when I read the mention of the parish being “taken away,” from the priest. Usually, there is more to the story.
Finally, I think the whole thing goes off the rails with the Jews and Masonry thing.
Unfortunately, much of this reads like the fevered musings of a well-intentioned, genuine, person who is slightly off track.
Shame on all of you. As long as I am on this forum I will continue to protest every Jew-hating post that I see.
Genesis-hating evolutionist hypocrites!
I do not feel "shame" or like a "Genesis-hating evolutionist hypocrite."
For the record, like SpirituTuo, I believe that "the whole thing goes off the rails with the Jews and Masonry thing."
Wait! There’s more!!
Absolute piles of dead electrons.
You're getting a bit mixed up comparing evolution, for example, to the author's impression of Jewish naturalism. Catholic thought on the matter fundamentally seeks to explain how God chose to accomplish something, rather than explain God away. The tendency in Jewish naturalism is to seek to somehow preserve "Jewish life" or the "Jewish experience" without the sole reason for the existence of Judaism -- God Himself.
The proof is in the pudding. Jews in the US are overwhelmingly non-practicing, and 90% of Jews in Israel, last I saw a number, identify as non-practicing. And yet, they maintain their identity as a Jewish people and a Jewish state. The reason for this is the implicit, and in some circles explicit, rise in Jewish naturalism. There has been quite a lot of scholarship on the subject, but the gist is that to the vast majority of Jews, most particularly Israeli Jews, have developed a sense of identity, a form of religion-based nationalism, if you will, that is devoid of God. The form, the functions, the rituals (Bar Mitzvahs, etc), are all mere tools that reinforce the communal sense of a Jewish identity. I would hazard a guess that most Israelis don't go around thinking, "my outlook on life is informed by Jewish naturalism." It gets stickier, in terms of polite discussion, when this sense of Jewish identity butts heads with Catholicism, but the truth is that the Social Kingship of Christ is incompatible with Jewish naturalism.
It's interesting to trace the rise of Jewish naturalism going back all the way to the OT. The Jews existed not just as an ethnic group, but an ethnic group that was chosen by God. While the Romans, Greeks and everyone else freely adopted and renamed and worshiped each other's gods, the Jews, those peculiar people, refused to even acknowledge any God but their own. Getting beat on by just about every other nation in the ancient world at one time or another made them dig in their heels even more and hold their identity close. And so it went right up to the 1940's, and into today.
There is no other example of a group of people clinging so tenaciously to a religio-ethic identity, even in the midst of the abandonment of faith itself except maybe Catholic Spain, which of course doesn't date back anywhere close as far as the Jewish.
This isn't antisemitism. It's merely a study on the social trajectory of Jews through history. I won't deny that some people can mix in antisemitism when discussing the incompatibility of the Social Kingship with Jewish naturalism (just as those coming from the other end of the argument can mix in anti-Catholicism), but that doesn't mean that any and every acknowledgement of the incompatibility includes and arises from some kind of hatred towards Jewish people.
Did you go to the Web site of this reference? How normal it is for each of us to judge or categorize the few words that we see without taking the time to read the reference article which also has many references.
If we are honest, I think we will agree that we are more influenced by the highly controlled mass media than we realize or even want to admit. Those who control the mass media certainly put themselves before the public in a good, and even deceptive light.
Those who do not submit to the authority that Christ left us, here on earth, automatically slide into subjectivism. I find that I have to struggle everyday to continue to seek the truth and reality outside of my head, from the Creator, despite the fact that “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44) is working overtime in these our days. This also means that if I come across new information tomorrow, I hope with the help of sincere prayer, that I will not shut my eyes just because the new information is not how I want the truth and reality.
God revealed to Saint Francis of Assisi these prophecies:
2. The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will wither to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the MORTAL POISON of his error.
7. Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer.
I agree. But just as Christ went through His passion, crucifixion and burial, before the resurrection, so too, His Body, His Bride, the Church. The few who remain faithful to the Truth that does not change with the world will even cry out with Christ in this period: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me!”
Yes afterwards will be the resurrection, but how many will flee from the passion and even deny Christ, Who is the Truth, in this period?!?
You two have my thanks and appreciation for that, at least . . . the Jewish part, not necessarily the Masonic. The Masons are a secret society and theoretically could be up to anything. Jews are not a secret society nor are there any secret oaths or rituals.
As you pointed out, so many people are non-practicing. How many baptized Christians and Catholics really practice their faith? How many Christians say the Our Father, Thy will be done, but live my will be done. The more one has received from God the more he can do good or evil according to how he uses what he has received. The Jews have received much; Chrisians even more. There are good Jews and bad Jews; there are good Christians and bad Christians.
Just as a General in a war has more power and responsibility, so too in the spiritual battle. A bishop is like a General in this spiritual battle. But many bishops today have followed the way of Judas Iscariot.
I love the Jews, as I love everyone, but I do not close my eyes that they have received much from God. I also do not close my eyes to documents that indicate which groups have the most control of this world. Just because the few very rich Jews do what they do, we should not lump all Jews together in the same group or category.
There are many many Jews who have become Christian in the last several decades but in a silent way that you do not find in the mass media.
The difference is that non-practicing Christians don't tend to cling to a Christian identity, and do tend to be dispersed in society. The Jews have nation that is build on their identity, along with the collective experience of being a distinct, unique religio-ethnic group dating back to deep antiquity.
