Longing for God: Homosexuals too

I have heard of several pieces of information about Bishop Vincent Long which greatly concern me. His opening speech said it was ‘not good enough’ to call the homosexual lifestyle intrinsically disordered, while treating them with compassion.  (Link to article here: https://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/parramatta-bishop-calls-on-church-to-accept-homosexuality/news-story/38408da11324d1ff8c427005aca3e6d4 )

He ordered a priest, that was imploring fellow priests and bishops to teach the truth about homosexuality, to cease and take down his video resulting in Catholic Church congregations being left confused, unaided and unguided in the recent vote – except by popular society.

He refused to urge people to vote ‘no’ against same-sex marriage in the recent Australian postal vote to change the law and apparently said “We have won” when the numbers came in as approving of the Aust. government changing the law to allow same sex marriage.  So what could be worse than that?

Blessing same-sex unions as if they are approved by God.

Why is this act so bad? True care for our homosexual inclined neighbour involves all Christians truly caring for, understanding and assisting them in their spiritual struggles. It involves self-sacrificial love. People experiencing same-sex attraction or participating in homosexual relations, long for God too. They too are made in the image of God, as all people are. The deepest desire of a human heart is to know and be loved Longing for Godby The Father. We were all made to know,  love and serve Him so we can be happy here on earth- and happy with Him in heaven (Baltimore Catechism). In fact, I do believe, as St. Augustine says, that our hearts are restless until they rest in Him.

“Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.” (Augustine, Confessions (Book 1)

Gene Fant, of First Things blog, describes it thus:

The longing of our hearts for something more, something beyond ourselves is powerful. Intuitively, we know that we need something to complete our broken hearts, minds and spirits. Augustine rightly points out that our completion is found not in romance, wealth or learning but rather in the One who formed us.

(Taken from: https://www.firstthings.com/blogs/firstthoughts/2009/12/our-hearts-are-restless)

If you, or I, or the Church, pretends that it is fine to go on committing sins of a homosexual nature, among other sins, we exclude them from the joy and the happiness stored up for them by God. It is the deepest and most satisfying joy that a person can ever know. And we deny them the Truth, and the help they need, in order to inherit eternal life. There is no love in a person who hides the Truth and allows their neighbour to go to hell.

By God for God

 

This is why it upset me so much to hear that Bishop Vincent Long held an LGTBi symposium where, at the end of it, he told his priests that he wanted them to help find a way to bless same sex unions. Because to bless is to condone the sin. It is to lie to the sinner in the worst possible way and to abuse the privilege given by God to his sacred servants. It is to expect priests to assist in breaking God’s Commandments. God the Father will not (and cannot) bless what is an abomination in His Eyes. The blessing would, therefore, be empty, null and void. It would be counterfeit.

All of this I knew, when I heard the new intention of Bishop Vincent Long to find a way to bless same-sex unions and I  was simultaneously aware that another prophecy from the Book of Truth was being fulfilled; that they will ask priests to bless same-sex unions.

With this in mind, I felt the sobering need to warn Christians that blessing same-sex unions is unacceptable by giving them the words of Jesus from His prophetic message.

I Priest blessing marriage unionalso prayed about this: that God’s will be done and that I would find the right words  to explain this in a loving, sensitive but honest way. That night, I began to look for the exact message where God says He cannot condone same-sex marriage or ever bless them and why. Only my initial searches could not find the message I wanted which puzzled me. I jotted one related message down and went to sleep. The night and next day sped by, as I unexpectedly ended up in hospital and had to sleep most of the next day to recover. Regardless of this diversion,  I looked forward to prayer group the next morning and it was there that God stepped in.

At the end, we open the Book of Truth on a message for everyone to hear (after a prayer to the Holy Spirit). Mum asked me to choose a book and open on a passage. I chuckled a little when I saw the heading. It had opened on the exact message that I had been looking for but had been unable to find by my online searches! Later, I found out that my mum had also been searching for the message after I told her of our Bishop’s ultimate intention, but had similarly been unable to find the one about priests blessing same-sex unions! This was a little miracle. There are 5 thick volumes in the printed version of the Book of Truth and over 1330 messages, many going over several pages and we managed to open on the exact page that starts at the beginning of that particular message. You can see why an online search is usually easier!

By the Will of God, therefore, I now share it with you the whole message as given by Jesus in the Book of Truth:

Same sex marriage a grave sin

16 March 2012 @ 10:20pm

My dearly beloved daughter, the pain and suffering of My poor followers, who have to watch, helplessly, as new laws, contrary to My Teachings, are reaching unprecedented levels in the world.

Not only do you have to witness sin, children, you then have to watch as sin is presented to you where you are forced to accept it as being humane.

I refer to one sin in particular, same sex marriage, which is presented as a natural right. You are then expected to accept this abomination, as it is set before My Father’s Throne in a Church.

It is not enough for these people to condone same sex marriage in the eyes of the law, they then want to force God the Father to give them His Blessing. He could never do this, because it is a grave sin in His Eyes.

How dare these people think it is acceptable to parade this abominable act in My Father’s Churches?

Children, I love every soul.

I love sinners.

I detest their sin, but love the sinner.

Same sex sexual acts are not acceptable in My Father’s Eyes.

Pray for these souls because I love them, but cannot give them the graces they desire.

They must know, that no matter how much they try to condone same sex marriages, they are not entitled to participate in the Holy Sacrament of Marriage.

A Sacrament must come from God. The rules for receiving Sacraments must stem from My Father’s Teachings.

You cannot force My Father, God the Most High, to give His Blessing, or access to, His Holy Sacraments, unless they are respected in the way they are meant to be.

Sin is now presented in the world as a good thing.

As I have said before, the world is back to front.

Good is presented as evil and those people who try to live by the Laws of God the Father, are sneered at.

Evil, no matter how you dress it up, cannot be turned into an act of goodness, in the Eyes of My Father.

My Father will punish those who continue to flaunt their sins before Him.

Heed this warning, for your sins, which are carried out when you refuse to obey God, will not and cannot be forgiven.

This is because you refuse to accept sin for what it is.

Your Saviour, Jesus Christ

Truth and Error: More Events and the Local Bishop

AM+DG

More on the local Bishop:

It’s just gets worse. A little over a week ago, we found out about a new R.E (Religious Education) Curriculum (which denies the True Presence in the Eucharist) and which is to be implemented in the  Catholic schools of this diocese in …  Australia, See our previous post on 1 July at:  https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2018/07/01/advancing-toward…on-of-desolation/

This week, there is more:

The Bishop held an LGBTi symposium to which he invited priests and others of influence in his diocese. He invited various speakers including a ‘practising Lesbian in a wheelchair’ who felt rejected by the Church and spoke only of her negative experience, as well as ‘theologians’ who began with what seemed like authentic teaching about love, compassion and inclusion but failed to include the one most important element: helping these wounded people to experience the fullness of the Love of God and His plans for them, by turning away from their sin; one which is mortal and which, unrepentant, denies them entrance to Eternal Life.

He describes it as an “inaugural event” that means there will be a lot more meetings like this to come. He says “We hope to become a Church where LGBTi Catholics feel welcomed, accepted and loved.” The Church already does this. The Church has never differentiated against them- they are welcome to come to Mass, and receive Holy Communion if they are in the state of Grace. In order to assist them in reforming their lives there are amazing organizations like Courage: https://couragerc.org/faqs/ and media releases like that of Brandon Vogt: https://brandonvogt.com/third-way-homosexuality-catholic-church/ or websites from the point of view of prodigal sons (reformed homosexual) like Joseph Schiambra: http://josephsciambra.com/

  • It’s like any other sinner – including fornicators, adulterers, etc. sinners go to Confession, then with a firm purpose of Amendment, may receive Holy Communion. They must amend their lives, and seek God above all else, and all will be well. We welcome, accept and love them – on these grounds, which are no different to any other sinner.

Where will these meetings lead?

It has been said that the intention is to bless the ‘unions’ of these people. I imagine that giving them Communion, would be another step. All these things will affect the Sacraments – Penance, Holy Communion, Matrimony.  The Sacraments will be meaningless!

Just as well there are a few brave priests, who speak out:

As a dear parish priest wrote in his bulletin recently while explaining the errors of Amoris Laetitia:..” the Lord Himself (who) said to the woman caught committing adultery ‘…neither will I condemn you, but go now and sin no more'”. This dear priest explains that  Amoris Laetitia “overturns 2000 years of consistent teaching, contradicting the Lord Himself.” The priest explains that to overturn the Lord’s instruction to the woman is to make oneself equal to the authority of Christ Himself; “which in turn, is denying the Divinity of Christ.”

We can’t ignore, or overturn God’s commandments – they are for all.

Another quote regarding the issues:

“Even the devil can be a theologian.”

“Building an inclusive Church.”

The word “accompanying” is used. Now where did we hear that before? In essence it means ignoring the sinjust be there for them. The bishop says “the journey continues”. How scary – I don’t want to know where this journey is going. The poster  explains: “Building an inclusive Church.” It is simply another step towards  acceptance of a One World Church. This bishop supports pope Francis in his vision:

‘John Thavis, a former Vatican bureau chief for Catholic News Service, said of  Francis : “He’s laying down some real markers about the kinds of reforms he expects to preside over, including greater decentralization, openness to diversity in the church, and a greater emphasis on the gospel message of salvation as opposed to church doctrines and rules.” ‘ (See https://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/27/world/europe/in-major-document-pope-francis-present-his-vision.html

Religious Deception

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1950):

“… There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church will be one. And the False prophet will create the other….”

We see this prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes. Pope Francis (the false prophet) and his cohorts are building a counterfeit church. The local bishop is part of this plan. It is happening in many places with many bishops. If God’s commandments and Christ’s teachings are changed, or amended, or re-interpreted against 2000 years of continuous teaching, then it is no longer the church that Christ established,

Pope Pius X11 – 1950’s:

“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the church is a Divine Warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in her Liturgy, Her Theology and her soul…”

1 Timothy 4: 1-2:

“Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils,…”

Book of Truth:

“…The Ten Commandments, given to the world by My Father through the prophet Moses, are being re-written by man. They have been taken apart, twisted and given new meaning, so that man can condone sin.

… You show disrespect for the institution of marriage and think little of abusing this Most Holy Sacrament. You insult God further when you continue to seek His blessings on marriages, when He does not, nor can, recognise them. Yet, you continue to insult Him….” (8 July, 2013)

“…You, all of you who believe in My Church, must never betray Me. You must never accept any substitute for the Sacraments as I gave them to you. I Am the Truth. My Church represents the Truth. But you can only claim to be part of My Church if you retain all of My Teachings, My Sacraments and accept that My death on the Cross was the greatest Sacrifice to secure your salvation.”

“…They, the enemies of God, want Christians to accept marriage between couples of the same sex, but they must never accept this, as it offends My Father. It is not acceptable in His Eyes. …

…When you deny the Teachings of God and follow a new, alternative Church, you will no longer remain part of My Church on Earth. ..” (5th August, 2013)

Please pray for this bishop, and all the priests and people in his care.

Advancing towards the Abomination of Desolation

AM+DG

Posted on the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, July 2018.

Yesterday (Sat. 23 June, 2018)  I was shocked!!! REALLY SHOCKED!!!

I didn’t expect this to happen so close to home; ‘in our own backyard’, so to speak.

When I first received an email from a fellow Catholic, I thought it couldn’t be true. It stated that a new R.E  (Religious Education) Curriculum was to be introduced into Catholic Schools in our diocese to children in upper primary and high school ( i.e; from  11-18 years of age).

Later, I received further news from this person, (who is well known in a few parishes and who also is well known to a number of Catholic priests):

“Just want to let you know a good priest was at the teachers & principals meeting in … Diocese recently where the new R.E Curriculum to be implemented was discussed and he had to stand up and defend the Catholic Belief at the Heart of The Faith: that Jesus is really, truly and substantially present in the Blessed Sacrament.

The link to the article below, in The Catholic Weekly last year, explains what this new Curriculum is about. It is called the Leuven Research Project and it is going to be implemented in the systemic Catholic Schools in the Diocese of  (…)  for Year 5 to 12. That Jesus performed miracles is also symbolic (as well as the Eucharist being just a symbol)  according to this Curriculum.”

Reading the link* (see below) that she sent me, it seems they had been working on this for over a year. I remembered a former parishioner of ours who left the diocesan Catholic Education Office and deliberately got a new job in a new diocese a few months ago. He didn’t like what was happening (but he couldn’t tell us at the time). At least he has a very good bishop where he is now!

The event described above, has since been verified to me today (1 July) by another parishioner who heard of this meeting through her own contacts.

I did a search online but could not find the R.E Curriculum . Another (teacher) source said that it has not yet been “released or published for staff”.

The Bishop of the diocese directing this development, was chosen by Bergoglio when the former bishop was elevated to Archbishop -to replace the cardinal of a neighbouring diocese who was called to Rome.

 

“What the lack of response (at the meeting)  shows me is what a thorough job they have already done of erasing and undermining the faith of teachers, PRIESTS, principals, Catholic school leaders…in our (once) Catholic school system” (comment by DonnaLiane)

This is another attack on the Eucharist!

  • First Amoris Laetitia (Communion to adulterers)
  • Then Communion to Lutherans (as happened at a Mass at the Vatican)
  • Communion to non-Catholic spouses of Catholics – (on 22 June, Pope Francis said that individual bishops can decide on whether Protestant spouses can receive Holy Communion)
  • Communion to people identifying as LGBTQi and who have not repented and continue to live in sin…
  • Now we are told, and our children are to be taught – that the True Presence  is only symbolic – Jesus is not truly present. Also that the miracles written about in the Gospels, are only literary devices!!

*Read about this new curriculum and its inception as a research project here. The article was written over a year ago.

https://www.catholicweekly.com.au/monica-doumit-catholic-religious-education-project-has-a-lot-in-common-with-safe-schools/

The final attack:

The final attack on the Eucharist will probably arrive with the changes to the Mass which are now being planned. When the words of Consecration are changed to signify that the Eucharist implies communion with each other … then it will no longer be the Body of Christ.

 If children (and their parents) are being already taught that the Real Presence is not true and that it is merely symbolic, then the transition will be easy.

At one of our prayer meetings, we opened up the Bible at Hosea 9: 1-6:

 (Summary:) They have deserted God and the bread and wine won’t nourish them. They won’t offer the sacrifice of the Lord anymore. And their bread will be like mourners’ bread. It will make them unclean…

It seems things are happening very fast – orchestrated in fact.

In this country, we have had an inquiry into sexual abuse by priests and as a result there came an attack on the Seal of Confession, with a new law being passed. On June 18, 2018, it was reported in LifeSite News that Australian bishops remained defiant and said they would risk gaol rather than break the Sacred Seal of Confession to report sexual abuse.  This is to be implemented from the end of March next year.

See – https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/australian-priests-say-theyll-risk-jail-to-protect-seal-of-confession-from?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com&utm_campaign=dc38221574-Daily%2520Headlines%2520-%2520World_COPY_264&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_12387f0e3e-dc38221574-402310269

Also see video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5JOQjaGs9Q&feature=youtu.be

It seems the US has similar problems:

On June 19, LifeSite News reported that the US Bishops’ Conference upheld the Church’s teaching on the ‘inviolability of the seal of confession’.

See – https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/bishops-make-clear-the-churchs-teaching-on-the-inviolability-of-the-seal-of?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com&utm_campaign=202cfa52e6-Daily%2520Headlines%2520-%2520World_COPY_265&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_12387f0e3e-202cfa52e6-402310269

It seems the Bishops are on the right track, but the laws our governments pass are a different story.

Our Sacraments are being attacked relentlessly:

Matrimony- Amoris Laetitia; civil remarriages after divorce acknowledged; same-sex ‘marriages’;

Penance this will be affected by a flow-on effect of Amoris Laetitia; also the new “Seal of Confession” laws being promulgated in various parts of the world (Australia and US)

Eucharist  – Communion to adulterers; Communion to spouses of Catholics; Communion to Lutherans (as has happened at the Vatican) … and now the most vicious attack of all – that the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist is only symbolic!

Holy Orders – whisperings of married priests, women priests, homosexual priests…(synods to come??)

LifeSite News has articles on all these examples listed above. You will probably have read them during the past few years/months.

Don’t expect it to stop soon!

Don’t think that your children are safe from this new religious curriculum being introduced!

If you live in a Diocese, where such changes to religious school curricula are proposed:

  • Find out from your school’s principal whether they will be implementing this curriculum. (I don’t think they will have a say). It will be mandatory.
  • Spread the news to other parents. Don’t expect to see an article in your local diocesan newspaper regarding such a change (or at least not one that explains the Truth).
  • Find out if there are independent Catholic schools in your diocese – approach them and see if they can accommodate your children
  • Find out if an adjoining Diocese (that is easily accessible in terms of transport), with a more conservative Bishop, is easily accessible.
  • Move your family to a diocese that is “safe”, but do your homework first, and remember, that bishops can change.
  • Be ready to home-school. Make inquiries to find out about other Catholic home-schooling groups in your diocese. As far as our diocese is concerned, there are plenty of home-schooling groups, with lots of support.

Jesus warns us in the Book of Truth:

“…The reign of those who wish to destroy the word of God has commenced and the times for all those prophecies, as foretold to Daniel and John, are upon you. 

Your Jesus” (Message of 17 April 2014)

I will ensure that My church, those who adhere to My Teachings, My Sacraments and the Word of God, lives on through the remnant who will never desert me. There will be those amongst you who will betray me today. Others amongst you will soon denounce my sacraments, as you will be too weak to defend the Word of God.

PF’s Encyclicals and Apostolic Exhortations – Part 6: Gaudete et Exsultate

AM+DG

Part 6: Gaudete et Exsultate 

Exultate Gaudium or Gaudete et Exsultate (“Rejoice and be glad”),

subtitled “On the call to holiness in the contemporary world”

Francis’s Gaudete et Exsultate is his third apostolic exhortation, after Evangelii Gaudium, and Amoris Laetitia.

Comments re quote in Exultate Gaudium:

“It is not healthy to love the silence and avoid the encounter with the other, to desire rest and reject activity, to seek prayer and to despise service” 

From Tt Crusader (to Donna): Well, there go the Carmelites and poor Clares, and other enclosed orders, and silent adoration, etc…

Donna’s reply: “…And I’m sure I can find biblical quotes about rest and silence. Some of the greatest hermits and saints took up this sole way of life.”

  • Headline: Francis contradicts previous Popes: immigration issue just as important as abortion

By John -Henry Westen   9 April 2016

(https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/francis-contradicts-previous-popes-says-migration-not-a-lesser-issue-than-a)

In his lengthy exhortation released this morning, Pope Francis chastised those who would see abortion as a more important issue than migration.

“Our defence of the innocent unborn, for example, needs to be clear, firm and passionate,” he said, but should not supercede the defense of the poor or migrants.

The contrast with Pope Benedict XVI is evident from Benedict’s 2006 remarks to members of the European People’s Party. “As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable,” he said.”

From the Book of Truth: 

 “If those who say they represent Me do not speak with the same passion about the evil of abortion, as they do about other acts against humanity, then be aware that something is amiss.” (25 Dec. 2014)

  • Raymond Arroyo of EWTN:

    Doug Mainwaring Lifesite News April 16th

“Raymond Arroyo and the “papal posse” broke down the “troubling” parts of the document on The World Over on April 12. (2018)

“I enjoyed the parts which dealt with the supernatural life,” said Fr. Gerald Murray, a canon lawyer, “but I got to the section where the Pope deals with what he calls ‘neopelagianism’ and I just said to myself, ‘Wait a minute. What’s going on here?’”

“Then there’s another section on ‘neo-gnosticism,’” said Murray, adding, “These are, in my opinion, very serious problems in this document because he seems to be defending the controversial parts of Amoris Laetitia by lashing out at people who don’t agree with him. And I find that very, very troubling.”

You cannot categorize obedience to the Ten Commandments as a defect,” said Murray. “And it is not ‘a museum’ to say that what Christ said 2,000 years ago is what I believe today.”

 

  • Claire Chretien of LifeSite news said on April 9:

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis’ new apostolic exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate “blurs lines and causes confusion” about the gravity of abortion, the leader of a pro-life group that majorly influences U.S. politics said today.

Pope Francis wrote that migration shouldn’t be seen as a “secondary” or “lesser” issue to “‘grave’ bioethical questions” and that helping “victims” of “every form of rejection” is just as important as defending the pre-born.

 “It is impossible to equate the moral weight of abortion – the direct killing of innocent unborn children occurring on a daily massive scale, here in America and abroad – with any other social justice issue,” said (Marjorie) Dannenfelser. “The right to live predates or precludes every other right. It is simple logic. Without the fundamental right to life, no debate can even begin on the rights that follow.”

“The Catholic Church has long taught that abortion is an intrinsic evil that must always be opposed,” she continued. … We all affirm the absolute dignity of the migrants and those suffering from poverty. How we solve these issues are matters of prudential judgment on which Catholics can disagree. Today’s exhortation blurs lines and causes confusion.”

From the Book of Truth:

Those who are of Me and who represent My Church on earth have failed to proclaim the Truth. Murder, including abortion, is one of the greatest sins against God. Why do they distract you from acknowledging the most serious of sins while they preach about the importance of humanitarian acts?” ( (25 Dec. 2014)

 

Christopher Ferrara says about “Gaudete et Exsultate”

in the Remnant Newspaper on April 11, 2018:

The document’s call for a living relationship with God animated by charity is belied by its repeated descent into the uncharitable caricature and outright calumny of those members of the faithful Bergoglio perceives as impediments to his maniacal designs. Herewith a sampling of the invective interwoven into the pious passages of the document:…”

Ferrara explains the errors in this article re;lating to Bergoglio’s views of Church teaching:

1) Contemplative orders apart from the world are unhealthy: …

2) The Church does not have all the answers and should not tell people how to live (unless it is Bergoglio speaking): …

3) Catholic doctrine is subject to different interpretations depending on circumstances: …

4) Catholic doctrine is not monolithic, but rather is open to doubt: …

5) Strong attachment to Catholic doctrine and discipline is Pelagianism: …

6) Those who resist change—i.e, whatever Francis wants—have succumbed to the forces of evil: …

7) Those who say all things are possible with grace are really Pelagians:

8) Even with the aid of grace it is impossible for “the weak” to keep the moral law given their “concrete” limits; only gradual progress is possible (thus exalting the frailty of human will over grace in precisely the Pelagian manner Francis condemns): …

9) Attachment to Catholic doctrine and discipline is Pelagian aridity that rejects “the Spirit”: …

10) Observant Catholics are heartless Pelagian curators of a religious museum who reject “the Spirit”: …

11) Attempts to limit mass Muslim migration (primarily military-age males) are morally equivalent to murder in the womb:

12) Any public opposition by the faithful to Bergoglian designs is defamation inspired by the devil (whose dwelling place is unclear given the interviews with Scalfari): …

13) The defenders of orthodoxy are heartless judges who look down on others (says Bergoglio who constantly judges and looks down on others): …

14) God demands that we accept Bergoglio’s “magisterium” of “today” and see the Gospel in a new light rather than simply following what the Church (including all prior Popes) has always taught; all else is rigid dogmatism:

PF’s encyclicals and exhortations – Part 5: Magnum Principium

AM+DG

Magnum Principium

Motu Proprio : Sept. 2017

  • Local Conference of bishops – Missal translations – ‘Magnum Principium’

Magnum Principium: “… new “Apostolic Letter” motu proprio, entitled Magnum Principium, in which the “Pope” makes a change to Canon 838 of Novus Ordo Canon Law, which pertains to the translation of liturgical texts. The modification has been decreed to take effect on Oct. 1, 2017.”

Whereas formerly approval by the “Holy See” was needed for liturgical translations, now the Vatican needs to merely “recognize” and “confirm” the translations made and approved by the local bishops’ conferences themselves.

… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that what will happen in actual practice : “…the Vatican will just give the nod of approval more or less automatically to virtually all of them. We will probably also see “priests” and “bishops” using their own words for all sorts of liturgical things and daring the Vatican to intervene, which will happen only after a long time and only in the rarest of cases.”

From:    https://novusordowatch.org/2017/09/francis-motu-proprio-magnum-principium/

  • “…He has taken the extraordinary step of modifying canon 838, §§2 & 3 of the Code of Canon Law….”

From: http://www.praytellblog.com/index.php/2017/12/23/the-relationship-between-the-moto-proprio-magnum-principium-and-liturgicam-authenticam/

“…In a strategic move of great importance, Pope Francis today issued a motu proprio which will return authority over liturgical translations to the conferences of bishops, by means of a change in canon law….”

From the Book of Truth:

All of My Words, contained in the Holy Gospel, will be interpreted differently. They will say My Word means something new, which will be more relevant in the world today. They will try to give examples as to how I would teach you, were I to walk the Earth at this time.” (9 Nov 2013)

“Accept nothing new, when it comes to My Holy Word. I will never condone one word that did not come from My Sacred Lips. Nor should you. You are either for Me or against Me. Accept any new interpretation of My Word, which is contained in Holy Scriptures, and you will betray Me. Once you do this, you will swallow a whole new doctrine, which will destroy your soul. I love you and if you truly love Me you will always remain loyal to My Word, which will never change”. (8 April 2014)

 

Part 6: Exultate Gaudium to be posted tomorrow

PF’s encyclicals and exhortations – Part 4: Amoris Laetitia

AM+DG

Amoris Laetitia – 8 April, 2016

Amoris laetitia is a post-synodal apostolic exhortation by Pope Francis addressing the pastoral care of families. Dated 19 March 2016, it was released on 8 April 2016.

It follows the Synods on the Family held in 2014 and 2015.

“I wrote to Sister Lucia of Fatima through her Bishop…  I received a very long letter with her signature – now in the Institute’s archives. In it we find written: ‘the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid,’ she added, ‘because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue.’

Prophecy from Book of Truth:

  • When Satan attacks humanity, his first focus will always be on the family, because the family represents all that is of My Father. He will destroy marriages, change the meaning of what marriage is, encourage abortion, seduce people into committing suicide and he will divide and break up families. Then he will destroy and break up My Family – My Church on Earth, for that is what he swore he would do to Me at the final hour. He has already begun to dismantle My Church and he will not stop, until it has collapsed in a heap at My Feet. My Father has permitted a destroyer, in the form of the antichrist, to do this, but only so far can he go. My Church is My Family and, while a large proportion of God’s children will leave to follow a restructured false church, many will still cling to Me and so My Church – My Body – cannot die.” (8 April 2014)

Errors in apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia

  • Footnote 351 (Amoris laetitia‘s) granted permission for unrepentant adulterers to commit sacrilege at Mass
  • He also conveniently failed to quote St. John Paul’s Familiaris consortio 84 which explicitly upholds Christ’s commandment forbidding Communion for purportedly remarried adulterers,
  • Amoris laetitia‘s Footnote 329 rips the Second Vatican Council’s Gaudium et spes 51 (concerning temporary abstinence from marital relations) completely out of context in order to argue that “doing it for the children” might mitigate the mortal sin of adultery.

  1. #AmorisLaetitia ¶3:  “Each country/region can seek solutions better suited to its culture/traditions/local needs”  [aka protestant style federation of (40000+) churches, no central church magisteriurm, relativism]
  2. #AmorisLaetitia ¶297: No one can be condemned for ever [ie, no one goes to hell]
  3. #AmorisLaetitia ¶301: It can no longer simply be said that all those in any irregular situations are living in a state of mortal sin.[ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators are not in a state of mortal sin, sin does not exist, and the 6th commandment is washed away]
  4. #AmorisLaetitia footnote #351: “In certain cases this can include the help of the sacraments” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators may receive holy communion]

  • Into the magisterium despite the Dubia

As a result of this document, 4 cardinals issued a “Dubia” (i.e. a formal correction) to which Pope Francis had to answer some simple questions. He ignored it and eventually was able to get it into the magisterium through the back door. “Describing them as “authentic magisterium,” Pope Francis ordered the official publication of his letter to a group of Argentine bishops and their guidelines for the interpretation of “Amoris Laetitia,” his apostolic exhortation on the family.” (https://www.ncronline.org/news/vatican/popes-letter-argentine-bishops-amoris-laetitia-part-official-record)

  • Here’s how Pope Francis elevated communion for adulterers to ‘authentic magisterium’

    Mon Dec 4, 2017 – 11:00 am EST

December 4, 2017 (Rorate Caeli) — This week, the Vatican’s organ for promulgating the Official Acts of the Apostolic See, Acta Apostolicae Sedis (AAS), has published its October 2016 issue, containing Pope Francis’ infamous Letter to the Buenos Aires Bishops. AAS not only published this letter, declaring that there are “no other interpretations” (“No hay otras interpretaciones”) of Amoris Laetitia other than those of the Buenos Aires bishops, but it also published the full Buenos Aires guidelines themselves, which permit Holy Communion in some cases for couples in a state of permanent and public adultery who are not committed to living in complete continence.

Most significantly, AAS upgrades Pope Francis’ private letter to the Buenos Aires bishops to the official magisterial status of an “Apostolic Letter” (“Epistola Apostolica”) – AND it includes a special rescript as an addendum by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State. This rescript declares that Pope Francis expressly intends that BOTH documents – the pope’s letter and the Buenos Aires guidelines themselves- bear the character of his “authentic Magisterium”, and that the pope personally ordered their publication in AAS and on the Vatican website….”

See the excerpted portion of the AAS in its original published form  at :https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/declaring-communion-guidelines-for-adulterers-to-be-magisterium-cannot-be-s

Prophecy from the Book of Truth:

( seems to refer to Amoris laetitia being inserted into the magisterium via the letters)

“…Many of My sacred servants will not be immediately aware of what is happeningIt will only be when they read letters, given to them from those in high places, that they will find difficulty.

Those who uphold My Holy Word, given to man through the Gift of the Holy Bible, will be challenged and urged to accept amendments. These amendments will be given to them and they will be expected to swallow them, and accept them as The Truth. They amount to one thing….

They will urge those holy sacred servants of Mine, to accept tolerance of sin.

They will be told that God is an ever-merciful God and that He loves everyone. Yes, this part is true. But then, they will be instructed to condone laws, which are an abomination in My Eyes. The family unit, and the destruction of it, will be at the root of everything…

Be alert. Open your eyes and beg Me for the strength you are going to need, in order to stand up against this vile and wicked plan.

This battle within My Church on earth will be vicious. Priest against priest. Bishop against Bishop. Cardinal against Cardinal. …” (December 23rd, 2012)

  • A new dark age

It seems that when Bishop Egan  spoke  of “a new dark age” (on April 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews), that he was referring to “Amoris Laetitia”.

Bishop Egan mentioned the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, Blessed Pope Paul VI’s landmark encyclical reaffirming Catholic teaching on married love and artificial contraception

“It restates the Church’s doctrine on the integrity of sexual intercourse, Bishop Egan wrote, reserved to a husband and wife in marriage, as an act of love open to life and that these two aspects, openness to life and love, must not be split or artificially separated.”

“Otherwise, the Pope warned, there would be catastrophic consequences for persons, families and society,” he added.

“The extent of the laudatory comments from President Obama UN leaders, all the liberal mainstream media, almost all leading Catholic dissidents and other of the most prominent world de-population, anti-Christian, socialist and even Marxist leaders, is chilling for those who understand the implications of this extraordinary support for the encyclical.”  Mon Dec 28, 2015 – 8:12 pm EST

 

From Catholic Family News: written by Chris Ferrara of Lifesite News

“It is impossible to provide an adequate synthetic description of Laudato Si (LS) because it is effectively a composite of multiple documents between the same covers, running to book length. In its six chapters, LS attempts to combine numerous disparate elements under the theme of an “ecological crisis”:

  • An assessment of alleged environmental problems around the world which descends to an astonishing level of detail regarding technical and scientific matters never before discussed in a papal encyclical, producing a veritable environmentalist essay  (Chapter 1).

 

  • “Judeo-Christian” Biblical exegesis concerning the unity of creation, stewardship of the Earth and the value and interconnectedness of all created things (Chapter 2).

 

  • Condemnations of globalism, technocracy and modern anthropocentrism (Chapter 3)

 

  • The presentation of “an integral ecology” embracing all facets of life and society and producing a more just distribution of wealth and resources along with protection of the environment to remedy “planetary inequity” (Chapter 4).

 

  • Proposed lines of action for environmental protection and the remediation of “inequality,”including global, national and local regulation by authorities able to impose sanctions for non-compliance (Chapter 5);
  • An outline of “ecological education and spirituality” aimed at “ecological conversion.” (Chapter 6).

In LS Francis has committed himself to the “climate change” narrative and its related dubious science.

  • a rise in atmospheric greenhouse gasses;
  • global warming;
  • the melting of the polar ice caps, glaciers and other masses of ice;
  • the release of methane gas from decomposing matter uncovered by the melting  of ice packs;
  • a rise in ocean levels;
  • an increase in ocean acidity;
  • the decline of the barrier reefs and their life forms;
  • a threat to the existence of plankton;
  • species extinction and the destruction of biodiversity, including not only mammals, but fungi, algae, worms, insects, reptiles,  “innumerable varieties of microorganisms” and mangrove trees (Cf. ¶¶ 20-50).

Francis endorses the climate-change establishment’s

  • demand for the elimination of the use of fossil fuels (¶¶ 26, 165) and
  • declares the existence of a moral obligation to reduce greenhouse gasses (¶169).
  • secularist-globalist environmental manifestos as the Earth Summit (¶ 167), the Vienna Convention and Montreal Protocol regarding the supposed threat to the ozone layer (¶ 168), and the Earth Charter (¶ 207)…
  • toeradicate poverty” and “safeguard the environment” there must be “development of stronger international institutions with designated authority [and] the power of sanction,” meaning a “true world political authority (¶ 175, citing and quoting Benedict XVI, Caritatis in veritate).”

 

This is a very political agenda!!!

 “sins against the environment”???  REALLY?!!

 

Denziger-Bergoglio (A site by Catholic priests) sums it all up:

I – Suspicion of the Church regarding ‘integral ecology’; a new doctrine involving an ideology which in many points opposes the teachings of the Church

  1. a) Legitimate concerns of the Church for the environment
    b) Grave misgivings of the Magisterium in relation to an ‘ecological mentality’ contrary to the teachings of the Church
    c) Humans are put at the apex of material and visible creation: they are image and likeness of God, with a body and immortal soul, and with a final end that is not in this world

II – The ecological problems of the planet are due to the neglect of the practice of the Commandments – immutable moral principles – by the greater part of humanity. The crisis of our world is a moral crisis, therefore, only a moral conversion will resolve ecological problems

  1. a) The Christian should see the world as a setting where life evolves in accordance with moral principles, with his sights placed on eternity
    b) The root of the environmental crisis is moral
    c) The solution for the world crisis is found in a society based on the religious principles of Christian morals

III – An ecology of a spiritual and irenic character opens the doors toward a distortion of the Catholic religion, that must not – under the pretext of saving humanity and dialoguing with everybody, Catholics and non Catholics – adapt to ways of thinking which constitute doctrines truly contrary to unchanging teachings

  1. a) Dialogue and drawing closer, without transgressing the truth and the faith
    b) Authentic respect for nature and human beings will only exist within an authentically Catholic society
    c) The Christian vision of the Triune God cannot be reconciled with the spiritualist mask of an ecology that appears to be open toward interreligious dialogue, but is interwoven with religious syncretism and pantheism.

 From the Book of Truth:

“So much misinformation has been spread in relation to the environment, when only God can dictate how the earth behaves. Man may harm and damage the earth but he can never destroy it, for all these things are in the Hands of God. A lack of trust in God means that man believes he has control over the universe. The foolish man thinks that his actions can change God’s Laws. The wise man knows that God is all powerful and as long as He is revered, and His Laws adhered to, then man’s survival will be secured. The survival of the earth has nothing to do with mortal man. Only God has the power to control the air that you breathe; the water you drink and the ability to sustain life. The only danger to humanity is man himself.  …. He (man)  will lie if it is to his advantage and when it suits him. Trust is easily broken and now you are living in an era where you must know that the earth will remain as it was before and that any climate upheaval is by the Hand of God. Man’s intervention in such a divine creation will only be permitted if it is according to the Will of God. (1 Jan 2015)
