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.

 

Part 5: Magnum Principio to be posted tomorrow

Prophecy fulfilled – PF and his letter

“Recently I re-read a message given by Jesus on December 23rd, 2012 which refers to the destruction of the family unit, changing of teachings and how the priests will have to make a choice. Not only has this been fulfilled, but down to the’ letter’ (Pun intended). The writing in black bold was actually in bold on the original prophecy.  All other lines have been coloured by myself. Very interesting in light of recent events.

See extract of  prophecy below:

“The family unit, and the destruction of it, will be at the root of everything

My dearly beloved daughter, many of those sacred servants of Mine, are to face a terrible challenge. This will be one, which will convince them to take one of two separate paths. It will be up to each, by his own free will, as to which path he must choose. For the abomination will make itself known shortly.

Many of My sacred servants will not be immediately aware of what is happening. It 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 viciousPriest against priest. Bishop against Bishop. Cardinal against Cardinal.

Let it be known that those amongst you, My sacred servants, who know Me and love Me, I will lead you. I will guide you. I will give you the strength to deal with these enemies of God. You are not alone.

You must never listen to lies, given or presented to you, in My Holy Name. Only you know the Truth in your hearts. Listen to your heart. Remain loyal to all that you have been told is the Law of God.

If you are presented with anything, which seems to be in contradiction of My Teachings, then you must turn your back.

Your Jesus

_________________________________________________________________________________

The prophecy,  as we now know, probably refers to the admittance of those in  grave sin, to Holy Communion (despite not having a firm purpose of amendment), through Amoris Laetitia.To allow this is an abomination before God.

And faithful prelates like Cardinal Müller of the CDF, and Cardinal Burke and Cardinal Sarah refused to accept this or to interpret it in any other way than the way in line with scripture and the lasting Magisterium of the Church.

This confirms the line:”It will be up to each, by his own free will, as to which path he must choose. Many of My sacred servants will not be immediately aware of what is happening.”

This is why the guidelines differed from country to country and the Dubia was launched as a result of the confusion. Each diocese made a choice and each priest chose whether to obey or resist their Bishop.

 
The pope’s intent became crystal clear however, when he sent “a letter” to the Argentine bishops about the Bueno Aires Guidelines, praising their decision to allow adulterers to Holy Communion. This was leaked to the public and priests then knew PF’s true intention. This fulfils the line of prophecy It will only be when they read letters, given to them from those in high places, that they will find difficulty.”
 
To ‘go along’ with PF, would put them in direct contradiction with Canon Law 915:
“Can. 915 Those…who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy communion.”
Recently that letter was added to the Vatican site as an official “Act of the Apostolic See” through the AAS, to give it more weight. This letter upgrades the PF’s private letter to the Buenos Aires Bishops to the official magisterial status of  ‘Apostolic Letter’.
This letter includes a rescript by Cardinal Parolin secretary of State which declares that the Pope’s letter in conjunction with the Guidelines bear the character of his authentic Magisterium and that the pope personally ordered their publication.

The AAS is the regular method under Canon Law 8 by which universal ecclesiastical laws are to be promulgated. So the re-script basically seeks to amend or change the law.

 
This fulfills the following parts about amendments and changes to law:

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 amendments  are clearly those in Amoris Laetitia; the fact that they have been put into the magisterium matches the details of the prophecy:  “They will urge those holy sacred servants of Mine, to accept tolerance of sin.” 
Since then protesting priests were told to go along with and accept these changes or face demotion, or even excommunication! These penalties have been threatened and imposed for even questioning the changes, let alone for not condoning them! Bishops have in some cases, actually instructed sacred servants, by their own letters or pastoral guidelines, to condone these laws, as well as new laws in countries such as those legislating for same-sex marriage. Bishops have either directly said things in support, often quoting Francis as they do so, or condoned them through their silence or through ambiguous statements. These are as a consequence of Amoris Laetitia, the letters and the implications of accepting the amendments; the language extending to all “irregular” (ie. sinful) “unions”.

Prophecy being fulfilled as events unfold – Changes to the Mass

AMDG

Timeline of events so far:

  • Cardinal Sarah at a conference in Scotland announced that Mass should be said “Ad Orientum (i.e. with the priest facing the altar and leading the people in offering the Sacrifice to God) and that Communion should be received kneeling and on the tongue. See Catholic Herald, July 2016. He was later rebuked by Pope Francis for this.
  • An article by Fra Cristoforo on 03/01/2017 announced that there is a private commission made by Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans, to “change the Mass”. http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/3530742/posts
  • On 14th February 2017, an article mentions how Bergoglio, at Santa Marta speaks of the “usual beatification of Luther and his reform” and that “the Bishop of Rome has given further directions for a change of “Eucharistic Liturgy”. See https://anonimidellacroce.wordpress.com/2017/02/06/spifferi-da-santa-marta-sullintercommunione-di-fra-cristoforo/
.
  • Pope Francis issued “Magnum Principium” on 3 Sept. 2017 which changes the rules for liturgical translations. It transfers power to episcopal conferences (i.e. to the bishops in their own local dioceses) and thus away from the Congregation for Divine Worship in Rome.   

 

Secret committee working on an ecumenical Mass reported by Marco Tosatti, who listed Archbishop  Piero Marini and a modernist lay liturgist – Andrea Grillo as being some of those involved.  He claims that Cardinal Sarah has not been officially informed. See “firstthings.com”

  • Cardinal Sarah has fought back against Magnum Principium to stop these new rules from becoming the basis of a new anarchy in the liturgy.  The pope emeritus wrote a preface to Cardinal Sarah’s new book saying : “with Cardinal Sarah… the liturgy is in good hands.” He has also been publicly rebuked by the pope for fighting back against these new rules: See https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-publicly-corrects-cardinal-sarah-over-new-liturg      

The prophecies:

  • All those who know My Teachings will see changes in the recital of the Holy Mass.” (16 April 2012 @ 6:00pm)

 

  • You must remain faithful to the Holy Mass and uphold the daily Sacrifices. For very soon you will be forced to swallow a lie.
    The daily Sacrifices, in honour of My Crucifixion and the change of the wine into My Blood and the Bread into My Body, will be changed, twisted and I will be vilified through new laws introduced by the False Prophet.
    You must never accept anything that is not the Truth.
    You must never accept heresy from within the walls of My Holy See. If you do then you will remove yourself from Me.”The changes will begin in the Holy Eucharist itself. You will soon be told that Holy Communion, My True Presence is, in fact, something else. You will be told it means different things. But this is a terrible lie. The Holy Eucharist is My Body and Blood given to you to allow Me to fill you with My Holy Spirit, to give you the nourishment that you need for your souls.When the time comes and you, My Sacred Servants, are presented with the new modern interpretation then you will know that the contamination has already started.This is when you will need to prepare. Gather together and defend the Truth of My Crucifixion. Do not accept the lies, the changes in the Holy Mass and the Holy Eucharist.  For if you do then My Presence will be lost to all of God’s children. (26 May 2012 @ 4:00pm)

 

  • “…You will remain loyal to the services of My Church and conduct your duties until the terrible day. This will be the day when My Holy Mass will be changed beyond recognition.When they present the new Mass, you will be left with no choice then, for you will know that it will no longer offer the Most Holy Eucharist. It will be then that the Truth will finally be revealed to you, although you will be aware of the signs before then.
    The signs will include strange new ways of
    adjusting prayers;
    Satan will no longer be denounced and the Sacraments will be tampered with in order to include other denominations.
    When My Teachings, My Sacraments and My Holy Mass are changed, you must not be deceived.(
    03.17 18:50)

 

  • The danger to the Existence of the Holy Eucharist will be shown to you through the arrogance of those within My Church, whose plan to change the Truth has begun in earnest. My Promise is to provide you with the Food of Life – My Body and Blood – and yet, you will, once again, deny Me.
    You will do this by removing the Holy Eucharist from the Temple of God and you will replace It with a corpse.
    The substitute will be subtle and it will take a while before you can detect the evil action, which will be foisted upon you
    .
    As My Body, through the Holy Eucharist, sustains you, the death of My Body, My Church, will bring death to the souls of those who discard Me.
    The time for the abomination is very near. The time for choosing between My Path, or that of the false prophet, is almost upon you.
    Watch, now, as the Truth will be twisted by the imposter. See how he will exalt himself in My Shoes, but will refuse to
    walk the path of Truth as a servant of God. (2013.03.28 @ 21:30)

 

  • My daughter, the change in the format of the Mass will soon be presented in My Church. It will be very confusing and for many, they will fail to see the lies, which will be presented within the new prayers.
    My Presence will be denounced in the most subtle of ways, but those who follow the new format, in which My True Presence will be denied,
    will be unable to perform the Sacrifice to God in the way it must be.
    My daughter, this one revelation will result in your being despised, but you must know that this has been foretold. My followers will be told that Holy Communion is about all people – everywhere – uniting as one, to show love to one another. Slowly, but surely, the Holy Mass will no longer be about My Holy Sacrifice.
    Instead the ceremony will be created to pay homage to man and you will be misled into witnessing a confrontation before My Holy Altars and all the tabernacles in the world. The day when the daily sacrifices will cease is not far away.
    Know that I come to warn you of this now, so that you will not starve.
    When you are deprived of My Presence, you will be empty of My Spirit and you will find it difficult to remain close to Me.
    The words which will be used to deceive you will include the phrase “for the good of all – for the unification of all God’s children.” The Mass will take on a new meaning. Forgotten will be My Death on the Cross and all the reasons for it will be re-defined. Remember on that day, My Words to you now.
    Accept the substitution and My Presence will disappear.
    I will be with you, but it will not be My Body which you will partake. (2013.06.29 @21:13)

 

  • When they tell you that My Body means something other than My physical Body, know then that the holy communion, which you will receive, will not be of Me. You must never allow them to change the meaning of the Holy Eucharist. It will only be when the Holy Eucharist is abolished completely that the antichrist will enter My Church and take over it. This is the day when you will know that the world of politics will merge with Christian churches everywhere and that I will no longer be Present within them. “ (March 15, 2014 @ 8:10pm)

 

  • “My dearly beloved daughter, people may ask why is it important that the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass be retained at all costs? The Mass is the focal point of My Presence – My True Presence in the world. My Presence brings both Life and Light. It will bring Life to the soul and fill it with a unique Grace. …As long as My Holy Eucharist is held in great glory upon the altars of My Churches, there will be life. Without it there will be darkness. When I Am not Present, there is no Light. Without My Light there is nothing but darkness of the soul. No peace. No love. No hope. No Life. Whatever new rules will be forced upon you in the name of evangelization and modernity, in My Name, know that if My Eucharist is no longer revered, as It should be and as It was meant to be, you can be sure that it will not be long before It will disappear altogether. On the day that this happens there will be a darkness, which will descend upon the Earth. You will not see it, but you will feel it in the cold hearts of men, for by then humanity will have changed. Once My Presence diminishes, the gates of Hell will be opened and the antichrist will take My Place in My Church. (June 10th, 2014 @ 12:05pm)

 

  • “And, on the day, when they will no longer hold the daily Sacrifices of the Mass, My Presence will become extinct. When the day arrives for My Body – My Church on earth – to be finally plundered, crucified and desecrated, all will change forever. (November 13, 2014 @ 11:10am)

 

  • He who tampers with the Liturgy is not an authentic servant of Mine and yet, that is exactly what will happen.” (4 April 2014 @ 11:20pm)

In conclusion:

“Magnum Principium can affect the very wording of the Consecration of the Mass. When this happens, transsubstantiation” will not take place. The Bible readings used may also be manipulated, so that we hear only half of the Truth, and thus get a wrong impression. It will be more welcoming to all and sundry –  the basis for the One World Church. The Eucharist will now be simply a memorial mealJesus will no longer be present. The “Abomination of Desolation” foretold by the prophet Daniel will now be in place.

The Church of Jesus Christ is “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic”. The New One World church may be the “one” officially and lawfully recognized church, but  there will be a remnant of the True Church still existing. It may be “catholic” (meaning universal); but it will not be “Holy”: the Sacraments as Jesus gave us have already been tampered with – Eucharist, Penance and Matrimony. “Amoris Laetitia” has seen to that. With this latest document, not only the Mass and readings, but all the Sacraments will be changed and even eliminated.

The true Church of Jesus Christ – the Remnant Church – will remain “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic” because “the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.”

 St Joseph and St Michael,pray for us!

Could this be a Sign of the Anger of God’s Son?

You know the old joke; “I couldn’t enter a church or the roof would cave in?”… well, those same people who make jokes like that, are now attending Mass AND receiving the Holy of Holies; without any fear of God; without shame, without a sense of unworthiness or repentance. Could it be that God sent them a sign and the roof did cave in?

In the last week of August, in the oldest church in Malta, in the middle of the night, the roof came crashing down. There was an almost perfect symmetrical hole, exactly in the centre of an artwork of the heavens, as if it came from there… But what’s even more noticeable is exactly where it fell.

It crashed down directly onto the modern altar, destroying it in shocking rubble. The new altar was completely destroyed and the rest of the church completely untouched. The pews were unmoved, neither was the lectern touched. They eerily stand witness to what happened in the middle of the night and seem ready to receive the congregation.

Any congregation sitting in the pew, seeing the destruction of the old altar would be shocked. The symbolism of the old altar left standing in its magnificent beauty, unveiled, as it was, by the destruction of the modern altar, and appearing to almost rise out of, or stand defiantly against the rubble, is not lost on me… It is now the only altar in the church.

 

The reasons why Jesus may be angry with this church are due to the Maltese bishop’s statement which used AL to open the path for homosexuals and those living in other irregular unions, who are unrepentant with no firm purpose of amendment, including but not limited to re-married divorcees, to receive Communion unworthily. First this was theoretical.  Then resisting priests were denounced and threatened with excommunication. Then this evil started to be implemented and thereby defiled the Altar of God and the Holiest Sacrament.

These two articles report the news and the second gives additional reasons why God may have sent this supernatural sign.

Is this a sign of a Prophecy fulfilled?

Extract from the message given to Maria Divine Mercy, below:

 MOTHER OF SALVATION FOR PRIESTS: TO REMAIN TRUE TO THE CHURCH OF MY SON ON EARTH YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO  FEED HIS FLOCK

2013.09.23

My child, many signs will be made known from the heavens, upon the roofs of my Son’s Churches, when the final changes are made in the liturgy of the Holy Mass.
All those who keep their eyes open and their ears alert, will witness the anger of my Son, in a way in which they cannot fail to notice.

(You can read the full prophecy here: https://missionofsalvation.wordpress.com/message-0919/ )

Well, I pondered this and prayed and asked God to send me a sign; some explanation of why this thing in the church had occurred. The message from Blessed Mother is for priests to remain true to Jesus’ Church and to be prepared to feed His flock in the way in which it was meant to be fed; with reverence, respect and belief in His True Presence. Being worthy by obeying His Commands. I know that the traditional priests maintain this teaching and practice, some of the Novus Ordo priests also do. Many of Malta’s priests now, sadly, do not. I then opened my CTS New Catholic Bible directly on this reading: 2 Chronicles 13- 2 and I read through to Chronicles 14: 1-8.

The Heading in my Bible is:

“Abijah and Loyalty to the Legitimate Priesthood.”

13 In the eighteenth year of the reign of King Jeroboam of Israel, Abijah became king of Judah, and he ruled three years in Jerusalem. His mother was Micaiah daughter of Uriel, from the city of Gibeah.

War broke out between Abijah and Jeroboam. Abijah raised an army of 400,000 soldiers, and Jeroboam opposed him with an army of 800,000.

The armies met in the hill country of Ephraim. King Abijah went up Mount Zemaraim, in the highlands of Ephraim, and called out to Jeroboam and the Israelites: “Listen to me!” he said“Don’t you know that the Lord, the God of Israel, has given the sovereignty of Israel to David and his descendants forever? It is an inviolable covenant for him and his sonsYet, Jeroboam, son of Nebat, a servant of Solomon, Son of David, has risen in revolt against his lord; worthless men, scoundrels, have rallied to him and they forced their will on Rehoboam son of Solomon, then a young man and timid, powerless to resist them. Now you propose to fight against the royal authority that the Lord gave to David’s descendants. You have a huge army and stand there with the gold bull-calves that Jeroboam made you for gods! 9 You drove out the Lord‘s priests, the descendants of Aaron, and you drove out the Levites. In their place, you appointed priests in the same way that other nations do. Anybody who comes along with a bull or seven sheep can get himself consecrated as a priest of what is no god at all!

10 “But for part, our God is the Lord whom we will still serve and have not abandoned him. Our priests are sons of Aaron who minister to the Lord and those who serve are Levites . 11 Every morning and every evening they offer him incense and sacrifices burned whole. They present the offerings of bread on a table that is ritually clean, and every evening they light the lamps on the golden lampstand. We do what the Lord has commanded, but you have abandoned him12 See how God is with us, at our head; see his priests with the trumpets, who will sound them to call us to battle against you. Sons of Israel, do not fight against the Lord, the God of our ancestors for you will not succeed.”

13 Meanwhile, Jeroboam had sent some of his troops to ambush the Judean army from the rear, while the rest faced them from the front. 14 The Judeans looked around and saw that they were surrounded. They cried to the Lord for help, and the priests blew the trumpets. 15 The Judeans gave a loud shout, and led by Abijah, they attacked; God defeated Jeroboam and the Israelite army. 16 The Israelites fled from the Judeans, and God let the Judeans overpower them. 17 Abijah and his army dealt the Israelites a crushing defeat—half a million of Israel’s best soldiers were killed. 18 And so the people of Judah were victorious over Israel because they relied on the Lord, the God of their ancestors.

19 Abijah pursued Jeroboam’s army and occupied some of his cities: Bethel, Jeshanah, and Ephron, and the villages near each of these cities. 20 Jeroboam never regained his power during Abijah’s reign. Finally the Lord struck him down, and he died.

21 Abijah, however, grew more powerful. He had fourteen wives and fathered twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters. 22 The rest of the history of Abijah, what he said and what he did, is written in The History of Iddo the Prophet.

2 Chronicles 14

“Asa and his reform of public worship”

King Abijah died and was buried in the royal tombs in David’s City. His son Asa succeeded him as king, and under Asa, the land enjoyed peace for ten years.

 Asa pleased the Lord, his God, by doing what was right and good. He abolished the foreign altars and the high places, broke down the pillars and sacred poles, and cut down the symbols of the goddess Asherah4 He urged the people of Judah to look to the Lord, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his teachings and commandments5 He abolished the high places and the altars of incense from all the cities of Judah, and so the kingdom was at peace under his rule. He built fortifications for the cities of Judah during this time, and for several years there was no war, because the Lord gave him peace. He told the people of Judah, “Let us fortify the cities by building walls and towers, and gates that can be shut and barred. We have control of the land because we have done the will of the Lord our God. He has protected us and given us security on every side.” And so they built and prospered. King Asa had an army of 300,000 men from Judah, armed with shields and spears, and 280,000 men from Benjamin, armed with shields and bows. All of them were brave, well-trained men.

The connection to me was pretty clear but then on rising, the next morning, Monday 28.08.17,  I opened on:

1 Maccabees 4: 46-51
The heading is:

“The Purification of the Temple”

Then Judas and his brothers said,
    “Now that our enemies have been defeated, let’s go to Jerusalem to purify the Temple and re-dedicate it. 37 So the whole army was assembled and went up to Mount Zion. 38 There they found the Temple abandonedthe sanctuary a wilderness, the altar profaned, the gates burned down, vegetation growing in the courts and the priests’ rooms torn down. 39 In their sorrow, they tore their clothes, mourned bitterly, threw ashes on their heads, 40 and prostrated themselves on the ground. When the signal was given on the trumpets, everyone cried aloud to heaven.

41 Then Judas ordered some of his soldiers to attack the men in the fort, while he purified the sanctuary. 4He chose some priests who were blameless in their observance of the Law and who were devoted to it 43 to purify the sanctuary and remove the stones of the abomination that had been defiled and put them in an unclean place. 44 They discussed what should be done with the altar of holocausts, which had been profaned 45  and very properly, decided to tear it down, that it might never become a reproach to them from its defilement by the pagans. So they tore down the altar 46 and put the stones in a suitable place on the Temple hill, where they were to be kept until a prophet should appear and decide what to do with them. 47 Then they took uncut stones, as the Law prescribed, and built a new altar on the lines of the old one. 48 They restored the Holy Place, and the interior of the house , and purified its courts. 49 They made new sacred vessels and brought the lampstand, the altar of incense, and the table for the bread into the Temple. 50 They burned incense on the altar and lit the lamps on the lampstand, and there was light in the Temple! 51 They placed the loaves of bread on the table, hung the curtains, and completed all the work.

52-54 The twenty-fifth day of the ninth month, the month of Kislev, in the year 148[a]was the anniversary of the day the Gentiles had desecrated the altar. On that day they made a lawful sacrifice was offered on the new altar of holocausts, which they had made. The new altar was dedicated and hymns were sung to the accompaniment of harps, lutes, and cymbals. 55 All the people bowed down with their faces to the ground and worshiped and praised the Lord for giving them victory.

56 For eight days they celebrated the re-dedication of the altar. With great joy, they brought burnt offerings and offered fellowship offerings and thanksgiving offerings.57 They decorated the front of the Temple with gold crowns and shields, rebuilt the gates and the priests’ rooms and put doors on them. 58 Now that the Jews had removed the shame which the Gentiles had brought, they held a great celebration.59 Then Judas, his brothers, and the entire community of Israel decreed that the rededication of the altar should be celebrated with a festival of joy and gladness at the same time each year, beginning on the twenty-fifth of the month of Kislev and lasting for eight days.

60 Then they built high walls and strong towers around Mount Zion, so that the Gentiles could not come in and trample and defile it again. 61 Judas placed a detachment of soldiers there to guard the Temple. He also fortified the town of Bethzur, so that the people of Israel would have a fortress facing Idumea.

___________________________________________________

I think that God takes his Holy Temple, His priests, His commandments, profanation, and desecration of His Altars pretty seriously, don’t you? Our Lady’s message was that signs would be sent on the roofs of her Son’s Churches, showing his displeasure. No matter what physically caused this, the symbolism of that gaping hole and the destroyed altar, in the oldest church in Malta, cannot be missed.

(Crusader Will): Random Testing – Part Two: High Level Fallout

A+M+D+G

PART TWO:  HIGH-LEVEL FALL-OUT

1

It’s almost as if the internet

were designed for end-time’s main onset.

There’s a deep Malaise in Bloggerland

that print media cannot withstand.

Local authorities may keep mum,

but gags on truth we can overcome.

Although Francis sows confusion,

the record will break the illusion.

Let’s broach these errors to date,

that the pew-stalled dare not contemplate.

 

2

We open with Laudato Si

which critics call far from error-free.

From St Francis Francis got the name,

if not this encyclical’s chief aim

(backing ecological myths

spread by neo-pagan re-truth smiths.

So this I’ve nicknamed Lousy Data.

This makes me persona non grata,

like Lord Monckton, whose analysis

caused it some kudos paralysis).

 

3

Random-testing critics’ reactions

highlights the underlying factions

in ideological debates

this encyclical incorporates.

Teilhard de Chardin, Karl Marx, Al Gore

get, says one wit, a Francis rebore.

But scientific error’s no base

for any valid doctrinal case,

such as made here, to view earth-ethics

as a new eco-religious mix.

 

4

Off-the-cuff’s one thing; but: pre-planned?

Such would prove things at root underhand.

The frantic Francis pace that’s churned out

word/deed pile-ups shows “well-planned” no doubt.

Still, picking out from background onslaughts

on priest-a-shuttle “bad-mention” courts

does not wrestle obscurity

from shepherds’ names, nor impurity

from the motives for their great pretence

that they act in our dumb-sheep defence.

 

5

The Synod (family-themed) which proved

the battleground Lucia was moved

years earlier to call the “last”,

had chief contenders reacting fast

(most laymen left adrift on the tide) –

if few took on the other side,

or claimed debate-finality;

all was interim view-parity.

But much unthinkable was aired,

whose contrariness many shared.

 

6

Faith’s juggernauts ran on well-oiled cogs,

however ballistic grew the blogs.

Among hushed pew-folk suspense just hung,

even as the prelate-balance swung:

cardinals at odds; bishops caught “out”;

priests spurred to rule-bends. Full hard-truth rout!

But few, purple-robed, backed lay-disgust.

Many saw shattered a life-time’s trust.

Do-something’d Francis did nothing till:

Pledged post-Synod sifts from through-the-mill.

7

Forth lumbered Amoris Laetitia.

Sounds like (but proves less than) “glitzier”:

marriage and Eucharistic error,

joyfully loved but striking terror

into some Churchmen as Church fellows

spread these errors world-wide. Truth’s bellows

pound shrinking ear-drums, but it’s the Host

the hordes want to desecrate most.

The Four whose pope tight-lips their “Dubia”

might as well rot in darkest Nubia.

 

 

Part Three will be published tomorrow.

Prophecies fulfilled – Apostolic Exhortations – Twisting the Truth:

A+M+D+G

Error and Truth – Fp’s Apostolic exhortations

 Twisting the Truth (prophecy)

“The division between the loyal followers, those who accept My Father’s Book, the Most Holy Bible, and those who want to change the Truth, is about to become wider. One half will not deviate from the Truth. The other half will twist the Truth. They will do this to suit their own political and personal motivations, which will be hidden behind a couched language. The Truth will soon be declared to be a lie and God will be accorded the blame.”  (B of T: November 21, 2012 )

In FP’s 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.

In his previous apostolic exhortation Evangelium Gaudium no. 161,

  • FP claimed that Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyselfis the first and greatest commandment thereby putting human beings and our human relationships above God and our obligation to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Contrary to what Pope Francis claims, Jesus, as all faithful Catholics know, says the first and greatest commandment is “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy might, etc.,” while love of neighbor is the second greatest commandment.

 (This makes all the difference in the world — and the Pope’s reversal of these commandments, putting mere mortals ahead of God, seems to explain all his actions and emphases since his election to the See of St. Peter, beginning with his ultra vires and scandalous washing of the feet of women, pagans, and transsexuals on Holy Thursday.)

  • Evangelium Gaudium, falsifies Patristic doctrine in Footnote 51, which provides quotes from the Church Fathers in support of the statement in
  • Evangelium Gaudium 47, “The Eucharist, although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.”

That sentence from EG no. 47, standing alone, is true.  But in light of subsequent actions and utterances of the Pope and numerous other bishops and cardinals, there is much more going on there …I think it now should be clear the Pope in EG no. 47 telegraphed his intention to impose upon the Church the approval of giving Communion not only to adulterers but to anyone who is impenitent or even those who lack the saving Catholic faith of Christ.  This is indicated by the way the teachings of the Church Fathers are treated in

  • Footnote 51 of Evangelium Gaudium.

According to francis, the great doctor St. Ambrose of Milan in his De Sacramentis (On the Mysteries) said:

“I must receive it always, so that it may always forgive my sins. If I sin continually, I must always have a remedy.”

Taken alone, this could sound like a scandalous encouragement to presumptuous or sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion, as if receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist removes mortal sin without any need for recourse to the Sacrament of Penance (contrary to the infallible, permanently binding dogma of the Council of Trent).

Did St. Ambrose really say, “I must receive it always”?  Did he think it’s wrong to refrain from Communion at Mass, that reception of Communion when at Mass is obligatory?

No, he didn’t think that, nor did he say, “I must receive it always,” nor, “I must always have a remedy.”  Evangelium Gaudium Footnote 51 not only takes the great Milanese doctor’s words out of context, but it also mistranslates them.

 Here’s the passage in context, and correctly translated (emphasis added):

“Therefore as often as thou receivest—what saith the Apostle to thee?—as often as we receive, we show the Lord’s death; if we show his death, we show remission of sins. If, as often as blood is poured forth, it is poured for remission of sins, [then] I ought always to receive it, that my sins may always be forgiven me. I, who am always sinning, ought always to have a remedy.”

Evil intent: Amoris Laetitia Part 2

+AMDG+

“So we won’t speak plainly, … then I will draw out the conclusions.

(See previous post Evil intent: Amoris Laetitia Part 1)

Some examples of the evil intent of this papacy:

1.Explosive language pertaining to homosexualiy was allowed to be presented at the synod. These suggest ideas which oppose Church teachings: CCC: #2357; Gen.19 13: Story of Lot and city of Sodom; (Ezek. 16:50); (Lev. 18:22, 20:13); (Rom. 1:26–28, 32); and (1 Cor.6:9–10). 

2. Admission by (pope) Francis: Deliberately NOT speaking plainly regarding Communion for divorced and remarried.(See Evil intent: Amoris Laetitia Part1) Jerusalem Bible: Matthew5:37All you need to say is ‘Yes’ if you mean yes or ‘No’ if you mean no; anything more than this  comes from the evil one.”

 

3. Despite the final Synodal Relatio affirming that marriage is for one man and one woman, it inserted paragraphs that support homosexual unions.

4. Pope videospagan images projected onto the Vatican on the feastday of the Immaculate Conception; the ‘I believe in love, (no mention of God)all religions are equal video- contrary to the teachings of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

5. Washing the feet on Holy Thursday of women and Moslems, etc are a direct insult and put- down of the dignity and role of the priesthood. It denigrates the meaning and symbolism of the ceremony.

6. #Amoris Laetitia ¶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] (TTcrusader                  

7. #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] (TTcrusader)

8. #AmorisLaetitia footnote #351 “In certain cases this can include the help of the sacraments” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators may  receive holy communion] (TTcrusader)

9. #Amoris Laetitia uses half- quotes from Encyclicals to suit his own purposes. E.g. ‘ a statement from Familiaris Consortio of John Paul II which notes that that there can be situations “where, for serious reasons, such as the children’s upbringing, a man and woman cannot satisfy the obligation to separate.” The rest of the statement was deliberately omitted. “they ‘take on themselves the duty to live in complete continence, that is, by abstinence from the acts proper to married couples.” See : http://voiceofthefamily.com/key-doctrinal-errors-and-ambiguities-of-amoris-laetitia/ 

10. #Amoris Laetitia not only uses half-quotes but twists them by inserting footnotes: e.g. Amoris Laetitia has not only eliminated reference to “complete continence” from the quotation from John Paul II, but has actually inserted a footnote suggesting that “complete continence” might, in some cases, not in fact be possible or even desirable.See: http://voiceofthefamily.com/key-doctrinal-errors-and-ambiguities-of-amoris-laetitia/

11. Pope Francis uses words originally written about married couples and applying them to those living in adultery. E.g. Footnote, no. 329 originally from (Gaudium et Spes, No. 51). Instead of “But where the intimacy of married life is broken off, its faithfulness can sometimes be imperilled and its quality of fruitfulness ruined, for then the upbringing of the children and the courage to accept new ones are both endangered”(Gaudium et spes) he states “In such situations, many people, knowing and accepting the possibility of living ‘as brothers and sisters’ which the Church offers them, point out that if certain expressions of intimacy are lacking, ‘it often happens that faithfulness is endangered and the good of the children suffers’.”

See http://voiceofthefamily.com/key-doctrinal-errors-and-ambiguities-of-amoris-laetitia/

“…the Pope intentionally manipulated the synodal process — against the will of the Bishops –to get an outcome that he knew would not be otherwise acceptable.”
