Separated from the True Pope, you won’t remain Catholic for long

AM+ DG

This article is a re-post from the “From Rome” website by Bro. Alexis Bugnolo who has done amazing work in researching the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. In this article he realizes that some people are confused because we must obey the Pope. But who is the Pope? He explains all the details in light of various Truths, that we as Catholics must hold. People must have knowledge to expel the confusion. There are lots of different scenarios in this article, that will help us to help others .

Our main aim must be the Salvation of Souls, and this article will help us. Please spread this to as many people, (and priests) as you can- but do it in humility and out of respect for the other person. Direct them to the original article (and Bro. Bugnolo’s many other priceless articles at the link :

Separated from the True Pope, you won’t remain Catholic for long

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Saint Paul warned us long ago: Beware, he said, for not all men have the Faith! He said this at the end of his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, to whom he revealed so many things about the last days and the Anti-Christ(s) to come. Here is the Douay Rheims English version of 2 Thess. 3, which the Modernists do not preach on any more. But which I want to speak of in this article. The Apostle writes:

For the rest, brethren, pray for us, that the word of God may run, and may be glorified, even as among you; And that we may be delivered from importunate and evil men; for all men have not faith. But God is faithful, who will strengthen and keep you from evil. And we have confidence concerning you in the Lord, that the things which we command, you both do, and will do. And the Lord direct your hearts, in the charity of God, and the patience of Christ. And we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the tradition which they have received of us.For yourselves know how you ought to imitate us: for we were not disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nothing, but in labour and in toil we worked night and day, lest we should be chargeable to any of you. Not as if we had not power: but that we might give ourselves a pattern unto you, to imitate us. 10 For also when we were with you, this we declared to you: that, if any man will not work, neither let him eat.

11 For we have heard there are some among you who walk disorderly, working not at all, but curiously meddling. 12 Now we charge them that are such, and beseech them by the Lord Jesus Christ, that, working with silence, they would eat their own bread. 13 But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed: 15 Yet do not esteem him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you everlasting peace in every place. The Lord be with you all. 17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand; which is the sign in every epistle. So I write.

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Bad Company makes bad companies

God made us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us free, because God our Creator is the Truth. It follows then, that we exercise our minds and wills in that which is most essentially directed to our own perfection and destiny when we assent to any truth and will to find it and keep it and put it into practice.

But any member of the Clergy, religious or laity — any hermit — who would hide the truth from you, then, is clearly not being honest, is not doing that which the Creator wants. This is especially true if the truth they are hiding is a truth revealed by God or the importance of which depends directly from what God has said.

The enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ

Christ said to Peter that whatsoever he would bind on Earth would be bound also in Heaven. All true Catholics accept that. All fake catholics ignore it.

The Catholic Church for more than a 1000 years took this doctrine as so central to true Christianity that it was willing to leave a schism with the Greeks in place and not back down on the duty of all Christians to regard the doctrinal and disciplinary decrees of the Roman Pontiff as obligatory, in virtue of these very words of Jesus Christ.

That is why, you cannot be honestly a Christian, if you are not honestly a Catholic who submits to the Roman Pontiff. And that is also why the enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ, because if you refuse the one you are calling the other a liar or regarding Him as not God.

Peter has told us when Peter is and is not Peter

And lest anyone be confused, it is the Roman Pontiff who has established in Canon Law the terms by which all can objectively and easily know when a man is the Roman Pontiff and when he is not.  To ignore these rules of Canon Law is just as grave as to disobey the Roman Pontiff and go off into schism, because it is an act whereby you say, “Let’s make up our own way of being Christian, apart from submission to the Roman Pontiff.”

This is why we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that  Christ Jesus does not regard any man His Vicar on Earth, if that man’s claim to be pope is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

The corrollary is that, we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that Christ Jesus does not regard any Vicar of His on Earth no longer His Vicar, if that man’s renunciation is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

Because this is the Catholic Faith, I have extensively investigated both questions, the first in regard to Bergoglio, the second in regard to Benedict. I did not do this on a whim, I did it out of supernatural faith.

There is no doubt about this principle: A man is or is not pope, or is or is no longer the pope, based on the laws of the Church at the time he begins or ceases to be the pope. This legal principle was recognized in the antipapacy of Anacletus II and his defeat by Pope Innocent II, a defeat which was secured by Saint Bernard of Claivaux, who came to Rome to preach the facts of law about the disputed election of 1130 A.D..

All the books printed in the Catholic Church since 1130 up until Feb. 2013 were in agreement. Pope Innocent II was the valid pope, Anacletus was the antipope, because Pope Innocent was elected in accord with the law of his predecessor, who changed the terms of a papal election in the last weeks of his life. But Anacletus claimed to be elected to the prior norm.

For the Modernist, even if he claims to be a Trad ….

For the Modernist, there is not fixed nor lasting truth. What was true yesterday, may not and probably is not true today. Everything is in change and development. Everything mus be alive, they say, but they really mean, has to die.

All those who changed their concepts on what makes a true Pope, on Feb. 11, 2013, are deceived by Modernism or are modernists, even if they claim to be a Traditional Catholic. This includes all the publication of the so called Traditional Catholic Movement who hold that Benedict is no longer the pope. Because canon 332 §2 has not changed and it says a pope resigns when he resigns suo muneri, not  ministerio. The Vatican knows this and has tried to hide it, and I have proven that indisputably more than 6 months ago. (See the Index to Pope Benedict’s Renunciation)

Stunningly Ann Barnhardt, in her recent podcast, revealed that even Chris Ferrara, the famous attorney, who writes for several Trad publications, admitted to her, that she is probably right on the points of Canon Law regarding the failed renunciation. That was like back in 2016. But Chris still recognizes Bergoglio as the pope. The only honest assessment is that Chris is not being honest either with the public or his own conscience.

From my work here at Rome, I sense the same is true for all the experts. You just mention that Benedict is the Pope and they do not laugh, they attack. They want you to shut up, or to go away. These are signs of deeply conflicted consciences.

If it is not Catholic, it is not Catholic

Men who want to be seen as Catholics but who won’t be responsibly faithful to the duties of the faith, should not be considered faithful Catholics. Those who knowingly deceive the faithful about who is the true pope and who is not the true pope are NOT involved in a little or small controversy. They ARE ACTIVELY SCHISMATIC AND PROMOTING SCHISM.

Saint Paul warned us of such men, and he told us what to do about it.

The true Pope is the mystical Neck of the Church

If you are separated from the true Pope, you won’t remain a Catholic for long. Yes, these men who act like modernists — I do not imagine they are, but they are being constrained by their love of being accepted by errant men and errant men with money and power — have let go of essential truths of the Catholic Faith. But even you, if you follow those who deceive you in such matters, will soon lose your faith. The Church will become something like what the Anglicans have, an all-is-up-for-grabs Christianity, which keeps the names and outward appearances, but has long ago dumped doctrine, morality and faith.

The same thing we see happening with these fake Trads. They are now trying to reinvent the definition of papal infallibility and have totally ignored the teachings of Christ and the saints about papal indefectibility. They are bending doctrine to invent an excuse to remain in communion with an obvious fake and antipope, while refusing communion with the true Pope who defends celibacy. They even attack the true Pope to justify their falsehoods!

This is why all Schismatics lost the true Faith, because they are no longer in union with the mystical neck of the Mystical Body and hence no longer in communion with Christ the Head. Those who fall into such sins cannot be saved, because there is no salvation for those who die separated from Christ.

Canon Law, the Book of Truth and Bishops’ statements

AM+DG

“Application of Church Law Regarding the Bishops’ Statements against the Book of Truth

A number of bishops around the world have spoken out publicly against the Book of Truth. Most of them have instructed the flock within their respective dioceses, in regard to the Book of Truth, not to disseminate information, that leaflets and messages are to be disposed of, that the messages are not to be discussed or taken seriously etc, etc……

It must be immediately pointed out that no Bishop, Archbishop or Cardinal has conducted a commission of inquiry into Maria Divine Mercy’s messages. There has been no official investigation at all.

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, has admitted in his statement that he does not know if Maria Divine Mercy is under his jurisdiction when he says in his statement that ‘Maria Divine Mercy may live in the Archdiocese of Dublin’. So it is not possible that he has conducted an official and comprehensive inquiry into the messages in the Book of Truth. The only statement from a bishop on a given private revelation that has the weight to override the Church’s general guidelines, is a statement by the local ordinary after he has conducted an official, fully fledged and completed commission of enquiry. Any statements issued by a bishop or archbishop before the enquiry is completed amounts to being merely an expression of his personal opinion. Normally the commissions are not completed until many years after the phenomena have finished, and generally not until the major prophecies given in the messages have occurred.

This means that all of these bishops and archbishops have been merely expressing their own personal opinions on the Book of Truth, opinions that carry no more weight or authority than being their personal opinions.

Given the fact that their statements are premised only on their personal opinions, it is not possible them to override the Church Canon Law regarding what Catholics can do or believe in relation to any private revelation which is yet to be finally approved by the Church.

 

We have a very closely analogous example….. the apparitions of Our Blessed Mother in Medjugorje.

The Parish of Medjugorje is in the Diocese of Mostar, in Bosnia.

The bishop of Mostar, Bishop Ratco Peric has been at all times, since being appointed bishop there, opposed to Medjugorje apparitions, and stated that they are ‘constat de non supernaturalitate,’ ie ‘they are not supernatural’. However Bishop Peric was not involved in any commission of enquiry on the Apparitions in Medjugorje when he made that statement.

Bishop Gilbert Aubrey of Bishop of Saint-Denis de la Reunion, being aware of the statement of Bishop Peric, wrote to the Vatican on January 1, 1998, asking what his position on Medjugorje should be, in the guidance of his flock.

The Holy See’s Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith answered May 26, 1998, through its Secretary Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone.

He wrote, What Bishop Peric said in his letter to the Secretary General of “Famille Chretienne”, declaring: “My conviction and my position is not only ‘non constat de supernaturalitate,’ but likewise, ‘constat de non supernaturalitate’ of the apparitions or revelations in Medjugorje”, should be considered the expression of the personal conviction of the Bishop of Mostar which he has the right to express as Ordinary of the place, but which is and remains his personal opinion.’

 

What is the actual Church Law (Canon Law) regarding yet to be approved apparition sites?

Ecclesiastical permission is not required for publication of revelations, visions, miracles or for the frequenting of non-recognized places of apparitions.

A decree of the “Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith ” was published in the “Official Acts of the Holy See” (A.A.S.) 58/16, dated December 29, 1966.

Articles 1399 and 2318 of Canon Law are abrogated by this decree.

This decree of abrogation was approved October 14, 1966 by His Holiness the Sovereign Pontiff Paul Vl, who ordered at the same time its publication.

This approval by the Holy Father took place during an audience accorded to His Eminence Cardinal Ottaviani, Pro-Prefect for the “Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith.”

The decree was made in Rome, November 15, 1966. It bears the signatures of:

     A. Cardinal Ottaviani, Pro-Prefect

     P. Parente, Secretary

The decree took effect three months after its publication, hence on March 29, 1967.

Canon 1399

The Canon 1399 forbade by right the publication of certain books such as those that deal with revelations, visions, prophecies and miracles.

This Canon has been repealed. This means that as far as these publications are concerned, the prohibition is lifted as to their being bound by ecclesiastical law.

This means that henceforth: Catholics are permitted without need of Imprimatur, or of Nihil Obstat, or any other permission, to publish accounts of revelations, visions, prophecies and miracles. Of course these publications must not put in danger the Faith or the Morals: this is the general rule which every Catholic must follow in all his actions, even journalists, especially journalists.

There is hence no longer any prohibition concerning the narrative of seers, be they recognized or not by Ecclesiastical Authority.

All the more reason is it permitted for Catholics to frequent places of Apparitions, even those not recognized by the Ordinaries of the diocese or by the Holy Father: Granted that the Catholic visitors who frequent these places must respect the Faith and the Morals. However, they are not subject to any ecclesiastical discipline, not even for their public prayers.

Permission is required only for the celebration of Holy Mass or any other religious service.

Canon 2318

Canon 2318 carried penalties against those who violated the laws of censure and prohibition.

This Canon is abrogated since 1966. None can incur ecclesiastical censure for frequenting places of Apparitions even those not recognized by the Ordinaries of dioceses or by the Holy Father.

Also, “those who would have incurred the censures treated in Canon 2318 will be like absolved by the very fact of the abrogation of this Canon.” (Cardinal Ottaviani)

 

In Summary

In relation to Private Revelations yet to be approved by the Catholic Church, by Canon Law, the faithful are free to believe in, disseminate information on, pray the prayers relating to, as well as visit shrines associated with them.

No ecclesiastical authority can override the Canon Law relating to Private Revelation, because prior to the administration and completion of an official commission of enquiry on the given Private Revelation, it is only possible that the given bishop/archbishop be acting on his own private opinion when he makes any statement on it.

Private opinion carries no jurisdictional authority.

There have been many supernatural occurrences in relation to the Book of Truth that must be addressed and explained in natural terms, if these messages are to be dismissed as being ‘Not of God’.

I have observed that all of the bishops and archbishops who have issued statements regarding the Book of Truth, have displayed that their research has been seriously incomplete, prior to expressing their respective personal opinions, opinions that are now seen clearly to be premature and defective.

It is reprehensible for the archbishops and bishops to be issuing instructions in relation to the Book of Truth, with the implication that they have given due attention to the matter, and that they are operating fully within Canon Law.

 

Regarding Bishop Alminaza’s Statement

In relation to the bishop of San Carlos, Bishop Gerardo Alminaza’s statement on the Book of Truth, he has mentioned the Book of Truth prophecy of Pope Benedict’s resignation but either does not believe that this prophecy was given, or places absolutely no importance on prophecy. Because indeed this prophecy came true precisely one year to the day, almost to the very hour before it happened. This prophecy which had massive significance given historical nature of the event, is very sloppily made reference to by the bishop and then essentially dismissed and ignored as having any importance.

Given all of the miracles, mystical events, along with prophecies that have come true, in relation to the Book of Truth, his lack of reference to them, demonstrates that his research on the Book of Truth is seriously flawed by its lack of gathering all of the available information on matters which are critical to reaching a decision on whether or not the phenomenon of the Book of Truth is supernatural.

ADDENDUM 

  1. In practical terms,

if a bishop or archbishop has adopted a negative personal opinion on any given private revelation he is able to say no to any request for activities, in relation to it, on Catholic Church property (only) within his diocese. And we must be obedient to that. The same applies to a parish priest in relation to his parish.

However he cannot forbid us in relation to any activities in our homes, on secular premises, on the internet, or in relation to our belief in that given private revelation.

 

  1. The author of this document..

has been a Marian speaker for 28 years, having spoken in hundreds of towns and parishes all over his own country of Australia, as well as in 13 other countries in various parts of the world.

He is a fully qualified science and mathematics secondary school teacher and is intimately familiar with Church teaching as per the Catechism of the Catholic Church. He has a strong sense of what it is to be truly Catholic, which comes from the fact that he was born in the early 50’s to traditional Catholic parents, and brought up to love and serve, the Lord. He served as an altar boy in the pre-Vatican II Church for some time.

His memories of the total reverence towards, and sense of, the Lord’s Presence in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, that was practised by priests, altar boys and attendees at Sunday Mass, remains etched in his memory forever.”

 

Comment by Remnant Survivor:

This is a very powerful article. It gives us power in the face of persecution. It sets forth very distinctly our rights and where we stand. It also sets forth our obligations and our freedom to believe. If we are confronted, we can explain the Church Law. There is no need to fear – just respect the priests’/bishops’ statements regarding Church Property and Church activities. That means if the priest says not to leave any literature in the church, we have to obey and respect his wishes.We can evangelize, spread information anywhere else – at home, in the shops, on street corners etc. The blessings will flow if we are obedient.

 

Oath of Allegiance and Changes to the Mass – Setting up the Infrastructure for the New One-World Church

A+M+D+G

Priests beware –

 

 

 

  • Pope Francis issued “Magnum Principium” on 3, 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”

This confirms Fra Cristoforo’s article published 10 months previously on 03/01/17.

  • Pope Francis issues an apostolic letter giving local bishops permission to approve changes to the Mass – “Magnum Principium”

  • On 16th 2017, GloriaTv reported that ecumenical Masses had started in Turin Italy according to Fra Cristoforo

https://gloria.tv/article/12HtBydxvUc21fhPZaKobfKV7

  • On 14th Jan 2018, Dr. Kelly Bowring, a renowned Catholic theologian, published a YouTube video: Pope Francis’ Plan to Implement an Oath of Loyalty and a New Ecumenical Mass”

  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRE7H9ZpBKE  published 14th Jan. 2018

 

  • Fra Cristoforo reveals that the process for the oath for the clergy has begun – outlined by Pope Francis is his new document “Veritatis Gaudium”. This confirms Dr Kelly Bowring’s warning of 14th 2018.

Email received 3 Feb. 2018 from Fra Cristoforo;  Brief note: the oath of fidelity to Bergoglio begins today in the Faculties of Theology”

The new Apostolic Constitution on the Faculties of Theology promulgated today by the Holy See is called Veritatis Gaudium. Signed by Bergoglio. Obviously.

Look what is written in numbers 26 and 27 (referring to teachers) of this Constitution:

  1. 26 §2: “Those who then teach matters concerning faith and morality must be aware that this task must be carried out in full communion with the authentic Magisterium of the Church and, in particular, of the Roman Pontiff …”.

That is Bergoglio. Be careful. In matters of faith and morality. In communion with Bergoglio. Ergo … Amoris Laetitia.

  1. 27: “Those who teach disciplines concerning faith and morality must receive, after having issued the profession of faith, the canonical mission of the Grand Chancellor or his delegate”.

Profession of faith towards whom? Obviously it will be towards the new magistero of Bergoglio.

(Http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/it/apost_constitutions/documents/papa-francesco_costituzione-ap_20171208_veritatis-gaudium.html)

Here then launched the famous “oath”.

Below. Silent silent. From the Faculties of Theology.

Those who teach future Priests.

They will promise to teach in communion with the magisterium of Bergoglio.

Not that it’s a novelty. But at least they have “formalized” it.

Now it will be up to the Parish Priests.

Fra Cristoforo

(translated from the Italian)

  • Book of Truth:

In messages dated 13th Sept 2011 and 18th Aug. 2013, entitled Changes to be introduced in the Church which will contradict the word of God” and “They will be asked to pledge their allegiance, through a new oath, to remain faithful to the Church”

Read Prophecies in Book of Truth regarding changes to the Mass and the Oath to be taken by priests:

https://missionofsalvation.wordpress.com/Message-0191/

https://missionofsalvation.wordpress.com/Message-0880/

In Conclusion

“Magnum Principium” and Veritatis Gaudium” 

Canon Law changed to enable changes to the Mass;

and the

Apostolic letter issued regarding the Oath for priests.

The changes to the Mass, and the rules enabling it to happen have been carefully orchestrated, step by step.

The Oath to be taken by all priests is still in its infancy – at present applicable to Faculties of Theology in Universities.

When priests have taken the oath, they will be impelled to offer the New Mass which will be heretical – an abomination.

The new law 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 meal – Jesus will no longer be present. The “Abomination of Desolation” foretold by the prophet Daniel will now be in place.

Priests beware – don’t be caught in the trap. Read the Book of Truth.

Many, many prophecies have already been fulfilled. The True Church – which will be the remnant Church, needs you. You won’t be alone.

The Remnant Army will seek you out to help you, give you food, accommodation, and everything you need to continue your priestly ministry, even if underground.

Any priest who needs help and support, contact any Jesus to Mankind (Crusade) Prayer Group or Book of Truth site in your country.
