The Synod – Week 1 in a Nutshell

Day 1:
It seemed like a good start: Cardinal Peter Erdo had no intention of being side-lined again (after what happened at last year’s synod). He tried to set the tone for this year’s synod – he began the proceedings by arguing against the ideas proposed last year. (They were defeated last year at the last moment, but according to the rules, these items were not meant to be back on the agenda.)He fought for Truth and true Catholic doctrine, which the Church of Ages has always taught. He covered lots of ground, arguing against
– Kasper’s proposal for divorce and remarriage
– homosexuality and same-sex relationships
– abortion and euthanasia.
He was strong and encouraged other bishops to “not go soft in defending Church teaching.”

Day 2:
In contrast, by day 2 we had progressive bishops mention:
ordination of women to the diaconate (Archbishop Durocher)
polygamy – “a matter to be decided locally” (????)
– Bishop J. Bonny (of Antwerp) wants the church to bless sodomite marriages.

Issues:
• A ban on communication imposed by Cardinal Balsissori means that the synod fathers can only publish their own statements, not those of others. They can’t comment on what others have said.
When Polish Abp. Gadecki published a summary of what various fathers had said during the day, it was promptly removed the next day. (This is a way of preventing the faithful from learning the truth of what was really said and what happened during the day.)
Why does mainstream media accept the Media blackout bans? (Whose side are they on?)

Cardinals such as Daneels, Kasper, Baldisseri, Spadara and many others (too many to keep track of) support heretical ideas. These were handpicked by ‘ f’ (i.e. the man who sits on the chair of St. Peter). and they are the ones who have prominence at the synod.

Cardinal Erdo was denied the microphone (after causing displeasure the first day by standing up for the Truth) and thus prevented from continuing his role as Realtor –General so that he can’t cause any more trouble by defending the Truth.

New Synod Rules – this was an intervention by ‘f’ so that all the power goes to him. He has to be guided by the bishops, who have to give him a list of choices. (But this is not a true choice because the only bishops that are heard are the “progressive” ones.) The bishops have to rely on only 3 things – the opening and closing address of last year’s synod and the Relatio of that same synod. This means that they have to ignore Cardinal Erdo’s speech at the beginning of this synod.
Cardinal Pell objected that these rules were being weighted one way. He was instantly put down by ‘f’ himself. In fact, 13 Cardinals and Bishops participating in the synod suggested that the synod was being ‘skewed’ by the General Secretary and ultimately by ‘f’ himself.

Sodomite propaganda was allowed to be distributed in the synod on 7th October, 2015.
What an insult on this great feast day!

I am not looking forward to the next 2 weeks.

What You Need To Know about Angels

I wanted to write a piece about angels and what Jesus (and the bible) has taught us. But I knew I had to be careful not to offend anyone. My intention would not be to lead anyone away from belief in these divine beings! But there are things you need to know…

Not every one knows the difference between a holy angel and a fallen one. For instance did you know that fallen angels may appear as very beautiful and make what appear to be ‘harmless’ or cajoling or consoling suggestions? They rarely show their true nature initially! They can appear as deceased loved ones, or as kindly, old men or women, as well dressed gentlemen or as priests, or even saints!! There are many stories about this that you could read. You might want to start with the experiences of Padre Pio with the devil.

What people may forget is that what looks or sounds good, may be the source of evil.  Remember the serpent and the apple. You must listen carefully to what they ‘say’ or ‘suggest’ to work out where they are “leading you”. Holy angels lead you to faith in God because they know that He is Supreme over all. They know He created them, as He did you! They serve Him with Endless Love and holy praises and both desire and GIVE all glory to Him alone! ALL spirits should be tested first.

Each group of angels has a different mission. Our guardian angel’s mission is to ultimately help our soul to reach heaven. We make them very sad when we sin or ask for selfish things, such as worldly comforts. They want us to desire heaven! They want us to keep our heart focused on spiritual things!

The Catechism of the Catholic Church  says

“336 From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession.202 “Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life.”203 Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God. (1020) (Taken from: http://www.usccb.org)

Secondly, in order to know the difference between a holy angel and a fallen one (which is actually a demon or devil- which is what ALL fallen angels are…) we have to remain in a state of * grace and to be knowledgeable about what God truly desires of us. True angels do NOT desire worship of themselves. They would rebuke this. If you continue to do this, you will cause them anguish, grief and misery. (Unless they are actually fallen angels in disguise)…Why?
Because they know that all glory belongs to God alone and that angel worship is FORBIDDEN in the Bible!

Here is just one of several passages that emphasise this:

Colossians 2:18-20
[18] Let no man seduce you, willing in humility, and religion (worship) of angels, walking in the things which he hath not seen, in vain puffed up by the sense of his flesh, [19] And not holding the head, from which the whole body, by joints and bands, being supplied with nourishment and compacted, groweth unto the increase of God! [20] If then you be dead with Christ from the elements of this world, why do you yet decree as though living in the world?

And to help understand what this means, read below from the footnotes (Douay-Rheims Bible):

[18] Willing: That is, by a self willed, self invented, superstitious worship, falsely pretending humility, but really proceeding from pride. Such was the worship, that many of the philosophers (against whom St. Paul speaks, ver. 8) paid to angels or demons, by sacrificing to them, as carriers of intelligence betwixt God and men; pretending humility in so doing, as if God was too great to be addressed by men; and setting aside the mediatorship of Jesus Christ, who is the head both of angels and men. Such also was the worship paid by the ancient heretics, disciples of Simon and Menander, to the angels, whom they believed to be makers and lords of this lower world. This is certain, that they whom the apostle here condemns, did not hold the head, (ver. 19,) that is, Jesus Christ, and his mediatorship; and therefore what he writes here no way touches the Catholic doctrine and practice, of desiring our good angels to pray to God for us, through Jesus Christ. St. Jerome [Epist. ad Algas.] understands by the religion or service of angels, the Jewish teachers, who sought to subject the new Christians to the observance of the Mosaic law.

It is equally forbidden to consult mediums, psychics, magicians (demonic) hypnotists, and fortune-tellers who have NO place in the kingdom of heaven. It is not disputed that some of these people obtain other worldly knowledge or power! No, many have it alright…but this power is from evil spirits and fallen angels! Although they aren’t necessarily aware of this themselves. They will lead you to hell. They will speak of love and light and nice stuff- but not of God. They will use flattery on you too. They will not worship the One True Triune God or lead you ever to do so.

It is very dangerous to ever invite or enter into any encounter with an evil angel deliberately. You are playing with fire! They are cunning too. I know a young woman who consulted a “bible quoting medium” and within about 2 weeks ended up in a psychiatric hospital. She continues to appear to be badly affected by evil spirits (1 or more, we aren’t sure) and the only thing which brings her any relief are Sacramentals and a priestly blessing and anointing. She knows exactly what started it.

We therefore must not seek to encounter or see angels for the sake of titillation either. We MAY however ask the holy angels which serve God to intercede (pray) for us and to help us to know, love and serve Him! We should be grateful when they do so.

I had a friend who engaged in angel worship, and as she read books about the topic, she thought she desired to know everything she could to use them- mainly to gain power for herself. But her information was all twisted and back to front-even calling the archangels feminine spirits! She was unknowingly reading a book written by demons. Not all inspired knowledge is from God. When her sister became gravely ill, she told me she was praying to the angels. She was heart-broken and felt desperate; I wanted to tell her (and regret not doing so) that only God could help her sister!

Forget praying to angels- go to the Man at the Top! He alone can save the body and the soul!

If you are worried any of these descriptions describe you, do not despair. But do sincerely ask  yourself: Do you really even know the Creator of ALL things? Have you prayed to angels and ignored the Head of All the Angels? Did you know it offends God? If so, you need to talk to God and beg for forgiveness with sincerity of heart. You need to ask Him to help you to know, love and serve Him better. Ask Him to guide you in starting a new relationship with Him through Jesus. It’s what’s been missing in your life- I promise! And pray for Protection from Deceptions*

All power is in Him alone and He is infinitely more powerful than any fallen angel/devil.

Knowing God will fill you with joy and bring you to a place where you’ll always see angels!

Here is a Message from The Mother of God about Angels: (Taken from mdmlastprophet.com)

Mother of Salvation: God’s angels can be asked to pray for you but never to grant you powers

Sunday, 30 November 2014 @ 17:20 Message 1279
My dear children, you must never pray to God’s angels, for they are His servants and strive only to give glory to God and to do His Most Holy Will.  Prayer is an act of worship and when you call on God’s angels, within His Heavenly Hierarchy, it must always be with the intention of asking them to pray for you.  If you try to communicate with the Heavenly Hierarchy of Angels, then it must only be to ask for their assistance and guidance so that you can do God’s Most Holy Will.
To those of you who believe that you will receive powers from God’s angels then you are mistaken.
The power given to angels can come only from God and you must never use them as a substitute for praying to Him.
So many souls try to communicate with angels today for selfish reasons and to obtain powers that have nothing to do with God. An obsession with angels can lead to a terrible discontent because this can attract the spirit of evil if you are not careful.
When calling on God’s angels to help you, you must always bless yourself first with Holy Water and then ask them for assistance, in the name of Jesus Christ. If you do not do this and use any object, which is not associated with Christianity, when calling on angels for their help, then this could invite the spirit of evil into your life. Once this happens you will find it almost impossible to eradicate it.
A pre-occupation with communicating with angels can lead to dabbling in the occult. Once this happens, you will attract those angels who were cast out of Heaven by my Heavenly Father. They now roam the Earth in the hundreds of thousands, seeking a home. Souls who leave themselves open to their influence can quickly become entangled in a spiritual world that is not of God. Once you embrace the underworld you will have no peace. These fallen angels will entice you into a web of deceit.
First of all you will feel a sense of hope and then a belief that you can control all aspects of your life, with the help of such angels. Eventually you will, mistakenly, believe that you are in full control of your own destiny. Every false notion of peace will fill your minds but, soon afterwards, you will feel a terrible wretchedness.
Dabbling with such spirits that you believe to be angels of God, but who do not belong in His Kingdom, will lead you into engaging with the occult, which will blind you to the Truth and destroy your soul.
God does not grant His angels permission to give you gifts because these can only come from Him. God’s angels can be asked to pray for you but never to grant you worldly goods or spiritual powers. When you idolize angels and seek out these things you are guilty of breaking the First Commandment of God.
Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

*Crusade Prayer (146) Protection against deception

Dear Mother of Salvation, protect me with the Grace of protection against deceptions, created by Satan to destroy the faith of Christians. Protect us against those who are the enemies of God. Keep us safe from lies and heresy, used to weaken our love for your Son. Open our eyes to untruths, deception and every attempt we may encounter to encourage us to deny the Truth. Amen.

*A state of grace is when the soul is united to God- without any serious, grave/mortal sins on its soul.

FP appoints a new Doctor of the Church- such as has never been seen before.

In March of this year (2015), Gegory of Narek was announced by Francis to be a new Doctor of the Church. Usually, Doctors of Church are saints that are well known.

Other Doctors of the Church include St Gregory the Great, St Jerome, St Augustine – all well known because of their writings on doctrine. Others include St. Basil,  St. Gregory Nazianzen, and St Therese of Lisieux.

Who is this guy? You might be surprised to learn that he is not a saint, and does not have any special skill regarding Doctrine. He is a member of the Armenian Catholic Church (Oriental Orthodox) – this church is not in communion with Rome. They are schismatic. They are  “Non-Chalcedonian”. This means that they reject the Council of Chalcedon held in 451.

This Council’s  principal purpose was to assert the orthodox Catholic doctrine against the heresy of the time. The Armenian church rejected the teaching of the two-fold nature of Christ.

They reject the teaching as stated in the document of this Council  “We teach . . . one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, known in two natures, without confusion, without change, without division, without separation”.

Read the whole story here: http://biblefalseprophet.com/2015/03/06/gregory-of-narek-christological-heresy-now-implicitly-incorporated-into-the-church/#comment-9075

(Reply by Fr Joseph Chaffee-Greek Orthodox priest 16 Sep 2015 )

“They believe that Jesus Christ had only one active free will, the Divine, while His human free will was basically “shut off” at conception. By denying (him) an active human will,(…) they deny Him the capacity of being able to be tempted in every way we are, as the Scriptures declare He was. This dehumanizes Christ and denies His full incarnation. It also takes away all the constant praise in the Scripture for His “obedience”, even unto death, for obedience implies the subjugation of one will (His human will) to another (His divine will–which is one and the same with the Fathers).”

A person who rejects an infallible dogma cannot be considered Catholic!

He is, in fact, a heretic – now formally enshrined as a Doctor of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis’ Questionable Statements

(The following contribution is from a fellow Crusader from a document entitled “Raising Awareness”)

Pope Francis’ statements in his papacy reveal a person who embraces humanism and places a person’s earthly life, wants and needs above that of a soul’s salvation.

As Christ’s vicar, he has issued a number of statements that raise eyebrows and contradict the Holy Bible and Church teachings. Whether the reader is Catholic or non-Catholic, your personal beliefs are not in question here. As Christ’s representative on earth, the pope’s statements should correspond with the teachings of the Church whose founder he represents.

Here is a sampling of Pope Francis’ statements compared to Catholic Church teachings:

  •  Pope Francis: “I don’t proselytize.” [Proselytize: verb, convert or attempt to convert someone.] 

Holy Bible: Mark 16: 15And he said to them: Go into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He that believes and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believes not shall be condemned.

  •  Pope Francis: …”The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”… May 21, 2013

Holy Bible: John 14: 6  – Jesus said to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father, but by me.

  •   Pope Francis: …”When we go to confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us. No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say: ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again’. And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.”… -June 15, 2013

Holy Bible: 1 John 3: 5And you know that He appeared to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

  •  Pope Francis: …“the Last Judgement. We need not be afraid.”…- Dec 11, 2013

Holy Bible: Matthew 7:21: Not everyone that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

  •  Pope Francis: “The Church and the Virgin Mary are mothers, both of them; what is said of the Church can be said also of Our Lady and what is said of Our Lady can also be said of the Church! All mothers have defects…”

Pope Pius IX, Dec 8, 1854, exCathedra: We declare, pronounce, and define that the doctrine which holds that the most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instance of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by Almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful. [exCathedra: an infallible Church statement]

  • Pope Francis: “God is not a divine being or a magician, but the Creator who brought everything to life.” – Oct 28, 2014

Cathechism of the Catholic Church: 52: God wants to communicate his own divine life to the men he freely created, in order to adopt them as his sons in his only begotten Son.

Pope Francis continues to utter questionable statements that need to be scrutinized. Always be on the lookout of what Pope Francis says and check its validity against the Holy Bible.

Is the pope Catholic?

Does he believe in the Real Presence?

I encountered the same lack of teaching from my priest recently when talking about similar clearly Eucharistic passages which gave opportunities to teach the Real Presence but where he chose to teach other aspects eg. “Feeding on God’s Word”.

Jesus is really truly present and alive in the Blessed Sacrament! He has repeatedly confirmed this in word, miracle and other signs. This is not an option to believe. It’s the greatest honour for our unworthy souls. Those who do not preach maybe do not see the Crisis of lack of faith and equally do not see “The Solution”. The immense power of this Sacrament means Satan works really hard on this one.

By the way, I’ve worked out (God or Blessed Mother gave me to think…) that at the slightest temptation or doubt/thought first entering your head, stop and pray 3 Glory Bes immediately and then implore briefly God’s help – Gods wisdom will quickly, if not instantly, drive the thought away!

Wish I figured that out before! Could have saved a lot of struggles!

Anyway, bless yourself then read this story.

Francis provides Protestant Explanation of the Eucharist

Pope Provides Protestant Explanation of John 6
On Sunday, August 23, 2015

… Today Pope Francis managed to explain today’s Gospel reading without a single reference to transubstantiation. In fact, he went one better. He said that what Jesus meant by that flesh and blood talk was the “sacrifice of his very life.” That’s right. It was not that bread and wine would actually become His Precious Body and Blood. Forget that. Our Lord was merely challenging people with the fact of his coming death, His “failure” as Messiah.
… Pope Francis does violence to the text, because he ignores where Jesus says: “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.” John 6:56. How does one reconcile this with the claim that Jesus is merely referring to his death on the cross? Immediately after Jesus says this, John records the following in v. 60: “Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, ‘This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?'”
Pope Francis goes on to talk about walking, “always on a journey,” in some nice but not particularly Catholic language. You will be glad to know you are not “chained” to Jesus, but “profoundly free.”
… Did he deny transubstantiation and the traditional Catholic interpretation of this passage? No. But when he took it upon himself to preach from it, he didn’t affirm it, either. A Lutheran or an Anglican or a United Church of Christ member or a Presbyterian could have heard this without a single objection. Perhaps that’s the point. [indeed it is!]”

Pope Francis Misleads on Real Presence Again

The next day
“… Pope Francis insisted then, as he did during his most recent angelus message, that the “bread” relates not to the Eucharist, but to Jesus’ death on the cross.
But Pope Francis explained that, “knowing he will have to die on the cross for us, Jesus identifies himself with the bread broken and shared, and it becomes for him the “sign” of the sacrifice that awaits him.”
Interestingly, here is how a footnote from a popular Protestant study Bible, the English Standard Version, deals with v. 6:51. (“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”) Since there is strong risk of confusion, what immediately follows is the Protestant explanation.
6:51 living bread. The “bread” Jesus gives is his flesh (a reference to Jesus’ death on the cross). Jesus’ statement intermingles physical and spiritual truth. Jesus is not talking about literal “bread,” but he is the true “living bread” in the sense that those who believe in him have their spiritual hunger satisfied. He becomes this spiritually satisfying “bread” by sacrificing his own physical body in his death on the cross, and in that sense he can say that this spiritual bread is my flesh.

Note the same misdirection by Pope Francis and the Protestant study Bible. Both identify Jesus’ “bread” as his flesh on the cross.
• Pope Francis: “knowing he will have to die on the cross for us, Jesus identifies himself with the bread broken and shared, and it becomes for him the “sign” of the sacrifice that awaits him.”
• Protestant study Bible note: “The “bread” Jesus gives is his flesh (a reference to Jesus’ death on the cross).

So, once again, Pope Francis avoids Catholic content and preaches a bland message to which few Protestants could object. Why is it too much for Catholics to hope for the Pope to boldly preach Catholic teaching? …

The Pope further diluted understanding of the Real Presence by making this Protestant-like closing statement. In it, “He who eats this bread” is a metaphor for “living in communion with Jesus on this earth.”
In conclusion, the Pope recalled Jesus’ words, “He who eats this bread will live forever”. He then explained that by living in communion with Jesus on this earth we can look forward to the voice of the Risen Lord who calls us when we finally close our eyes.
… What does the Pope believe? …

Archbishop Anthony Fisher keeps up the pressure

As mentioned in previous post, Archbishop Anthony Fisher O.P. delivered a lecture on 2nd July at St Mary’s Cathedral College Hall. His topic was

“Same-Sex ‘Marriage’: Evolution or Deconstruction of Marriage and the Family?” Defence of the Faith Lecture, Order of Malta NSW Branch
Picture1

His introduction sums up the stance he took, which was to convince everybody, not just those with Faith. He emphasis shows his viewpoint – that it is not “a done deal” – that we must fight, and fighting he is. See previous blog with details.

“The campaign to redefine marriage has recently gained such momentum – with now three and soon four bills before the Commonwealth Parliament – that many think it is inevitable; this can leave those with misgivings feeling that they are already losers in a done deal. Some think it’s the inexorable progress of liberty and equality – which leaves the doubters ‘on the wrong side of history’. In this context supporters of classical marriage are presumed to have no real arguments to offer. So tonight I want to offer some reasons – not decrees from on high or from the past, not expressions of hatred or prejudice – but reasons I hope anyone can understand. I also hope you find these reasons persuasive and helpful in proclaiming and witnessing to true marriage among your families, friends and colleagues. But even if you disagree with me on this matter, I hope tonight’s talk will help you understand why Australian law has always held, and many people still hold, that marriage is for people of opposite sex.

I will examine five common slogans in this debate – that it’s all about justice, that sexual differences don’t matter, that it’s all about love, that it’s all about the numbers and that it doesn’t affect me. Along the way I will be offering some reasons for preserving the classical understanding of marriage rather than redefining it to include same-sex ‘marriage’ (SSM)[1].”

Laudati Si: An Inconvenient Truth

Following is an article by a fellow crusade member on “Laudate Si”
‘Next up from Rome: Al Gore, the prophet of the environment, to be canonized for his work in evangelising global warming.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Inconvenient_Truth

So in this encyclical of Francis, who desires to build “a poor church for the poor”,
what about the unborn, the “poorest of the poor”, as Benedict XVI put it,
those that live in the environment of the womb and are in danger of abortion?

Where is the encyclical on abortion and the culture of death?
Where are the encyclicals on the massive apostasy and the almost complete collapse of the church?
What about an encyclical on the the moral and spiritual collapse of the western world, sodomy, divorce, and the collapse of the family?

The inconvenient truth is that
this encyclical is a POLITICAL NON-SPIRITUAL SOCIAL STUDIES OPINION PIECE
that serves as a DISTRACTION from the real SPIRITUAL issues of our time.

By their fruits you shall know them.

The priorities of those in Rome reveal
who their true masters are
and what their agenda is,
now clearly united to united nations,
the organisation founded by masonry,
which is dedicated to saving the creation of the environment
by destroying God’s greatest creation,
the creation of the human being,
who are the inheritors of the Kingdom of God,
which was lost by the master of the United Nations,
when he said, “I will not serve”.’
