Pope Benedict Vs. Francis: Part 12

AM+DG

The English Denzinger site (which was run by (20) priests, and which (strangely??) has not been active for a few years, was invaluable and priceless in terms of comparing everything Francis claimed to what authentic Church Teaching says.

The following is an example of one article I had saved. It is very long, so I will post just a few bits every day. The following continues from yesterday’s post.

Benedict XVI…

…judges Francis’ words that it was not an offense accepting the Cross in the form of a communist symbol

  • Marxism’s great deception: change becomes destruction

God’s glory and peace on earth are inseparable. Where God is excluded, there is a breakdown of peace in the world; without God, no orthopraxis can save us. In fact, there does not exist an orthopraxis which is simply just, detached from a knowledge of what is good. The will without knowledge is blind and so action, orthopraxis, without knowledge is blind and leads to the abyss. Marxism’s great deception was to tell us that we had reflected on the world long enough, that now it was at last time to change it. But if we do not know in what direction to change it, if we do not understand its meaning and its inner purpose, then change alone becomes destruction – as we have seen and continue to see. (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. Lecture at the Bishops’ Conference in Benevento (Italy) on the topic: “Eucharist, Communion and Solidarity”, June 2, 2002)

  • Marx and communism: a road towards all-encompassing change

The nineteenth century held fast to its faith in progress as the new form of human hope, and it continued to consider reason and freedom as the guiding stars to be followed along the path of hope. Nevertheless, the increasingly rapid advance of technical development and the industrialization connected with it soon gave rise to an entirely new social situation: there emerged a class of industrial workers and the so-called “industrial proletariat”, whose dreadful living conditions Friedrich Engels described alarmingly in 1845. For his readers, the conclusion is clear: this cannot continue; a change is necessary. Yet the change would shake up and overturn the entire structure of bourgeois society. After the bourgeois revolution of 1789, the time had come for a new, proletarian revolution: progress could not simply continue in small, linear steps. A revolutionary leap was needed. Karl Marx took up the rallying call, and applied his incisive language and intellect to the task of launching this major new and, as he thought, definitive step in history towards salvation—towards what Kant had described as the “Kingdom of God”. Once the truth of the hereafter had been rejected, it would then be a question of establishing the truth of the here and now. The critique of Heaven is transformed into the critique of earth, the critique of theology into the critique of politics. Progress towards the better, towards the definitively good world, no longer comes simply from science but from politics—from a scientifically conceived politics that recognizes the structure of history and society and thus points out the road towards revolution, towards all-encompassing change. (Benedict XVI. Encyclical Spe salvi, no. 20, November 30, 2007)

  • Marx’s real error is materialism

With great precision, albeit with a certain onesided bias, Marx described the situation of his time, and with great analytical skill he spelled out the paths leading to revolution—and not only theoretically: by means of the Communist Party that came into being from the Communist Manifesto of 1848, he set it in motion. His promise, owing to the acuteness of his analysis and his clear indication of the means for radical change, was and still remains an endless source of fascination. Real revolution followed, in the most radical way in Russia. Together with the victory of the revolution, though, Marx’s fundamental error also became evident. He showed precisely how to overthrow the existing order, but he did not say how matters should proceed thereafter. He simply presumed that with the expropriation of the ruling class, with the fall of political power and the socialization of means of production, the new Jerusalem would be realized. Then, indeed, all contradictions would be resolved, man and the world would finally sort themselves out. Then everything would be able to proceed by itself along the right path, because everything would belong to everyone and all would desire the best for one another. Thus, having accomplished the revolution, Lenin must have realized that the writings of the master gave no indication as to how to proceed. True, Marx had spoken of the interim phase of the dictatorship of the proletariat as a necessity which in time would automatically become redundant. This ‘intermediate phase’ we know all too well, and we also know how it then developed, not ushering in a perfect world, but leaving behind a trail of appalling destruction. Marx not only omitted to work out how this new world would be organized—which should, of course, have been unnecessary. His silence on this matter follows logically from his chosen approach. His error lay deeper. He forgot that man always remains man. He forgot man and he forgot man’s freedom. He forgot that freedom always remains also freedom for evil. He thought that once the economy had been put right, everything would automatically be put right. His real error is materialism: man, in fact, is not merely the product of economic conditions, and it is not possible to redeem him purely from the outside by creating a favourable economic environment. (Benedict XVI. Encyclical Spe salvi, no. 20-21, November 30, 2007)

  • Marxism: illusory panacea that promised the remedy for all social problems

Marxism had seen world revolution and its preliminaries as the panacea for the social problem: revolution and the subsequent collectivization of the means of production, so it was claimed, would immediately change things for the better. This illusion has vanished. In today’s complex situation, not least because of the growth of a globalized economy, the Church’s social doctrine has become a set of fundamental guidelines offering approaches that are valid even beyond the confines of the Church: in the face of ongoing development these guidelines need to be addressed in the context of dialogue with all those seriously concerned for humanity and for the world in which we live. (Benedict XVI. Encyclical Deus caritas est, no. 27, December 25, 2005)

  • John Paul II reclaimed for Christianity the impulse of hope which had faltered before Marxism

When Karol Wojtyła ascended to the throne of Peter, he brought with him a deep understanding of the difference between Marxism and Christianity, based on their respective visions of man. This was his message: man is the way of the Church, and Christ is the way of man. With this message, which is the great legacy of the Second Vatican Council and of its “helmsman”, the Servant of God Pope Paul VI, John Paul II led the People of God across the threshold of the Third Millennium, which thanks to Christ he was able to call “the threshold of hope”. Throughout the long journey of preparation for the great Jubilee he directed Christianity once again to the future, the future of God, which transcends history while nonetheless directly affecting it. He rightly reclaimed for Christianity that impulse of hope which had in some sense faltered before Marxism and the ideology of progress. He restored to Christianity its true face as a religion of hope, to be lived in history in an ‘Advent’ spirit, in a personal and communitarian existence directed to Christ, the fullness of humanity and the fulfillment of all our longings for justice and peace. (Benedict XVI. Homily on the Beatification of the Servant of God John Paul II, May 1, 2011)

  • Liberation Theology: an experience of facile millenarianisms

[Journalist]: As regards my colleague’s question, there are still many exponents of liberation theology in various parts of Brazil. What is the specific message to these exponents of liberation theology?
[Benedict XVI]: I would say that with the changes in the political situation, the situation of liberation theology is also profoundly different. It is now obvious that these facile millenarianisms – which as a consequence of the revolution promised the full conditions for a just life immediately – were mistaken. Everyone knows this today. The question now concerns how the Church must be present in the fight for the necessary reforms, in the fight for fairer living conditions. Theologians are divided on this, especially the exponents of political theology. With the Instruction published at that time by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, we sought to carry out a task of discernment. In other words, we tried to rid ourselves of false millenarianisms and of an erroneous combination of Church and politics, of faith and politics; and to show that the Church’s specific mission is precisely to come up with a response to the thirst for God and therefore also to teach the personal and social virtues that are the necessary conditions for the development of a sense of lawfulness. (Benedict XVI. Interview during the flight to Brazil, for the occasion of the Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America and the Caribbean, May 9, 2007)

…judges Francis’ pro-communist ideas expressed in the Meetings with Popular Movements

  • Marxists reject true charity since they consider it a means of preserving the status quo and slowing down a potential revolution

Christian charitable activity must be independent of parties and ideologies. It is not a means of changing the world ideologically, and it is not at the service of worldly stratagems, but it is a way of making present here and now the love which man always needs. The modern age, particularly from the nineteenth century on, has been dominated by various versions of a philosophy of progress whose most radical form is Marxism. Part of Marxist strategy is the theory of impoverishment: in a situation of unjust power, it is claimed, anyone who engages in charitable initiatives is actually serving that unjust system, making it appear at least to some extent tolerable. This in turn slows down a potential revolution and thus blocks the struggle for a better world. Seen in this way, charity is rejected and attacked as a means of preserving the status quo. (Benedict XVI. Encyclical Deus Caritas est, December 25, 2005)

  • Marxist panacea: collectivization of the means of production as the remedy for all social problems

Marxism had seen world revolution and its preliminaries as the panacea for the social problem: revolution and the subsequent collectivization of the means of production, so it was claimed, would immediately change things for the better.

  • Marx’s real error is materialism – it was and still remains an endless source of fascination. But it is not possible to redeem man only through the economy

With great precision, albeit with a certain onesided bias, Marx described the situation of his time, and with great analytical skill he spelled out the paths leading to revolution—and not only theoretically: by means of the Communist Party that came into being from the Communist Manifesto of 1848, he set it in motion.

…judges Francis’ ideas on faith being revolutionary

  • Christians should deepen their knowledge of the faith and live consistently with it

For the future of the Church in Latin America and the Caribbean it is important that Christians have a deeper knowledge and adopt an appropriate lifestyle as Jesus’ disciples, simple and joyful with a firm faith rooted in the depths of their heart and nourished by prayer and the sacraments. In fact, the Christian faith is nourished above all by the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist, in which is brought about a unique and special community encounter with Christ, his life and his Word. […] In a special way, the frequently recurring phenomena of exploitation and injustice, corruption and violence, are a pressing appeal to Christians to live their faith consistently and to strive to receive a firm doctrinal and spiritual formation, thereby helping to build a more just, more human and more Christian society. (Benedict XVI. Address to the participants in the Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Commission For Latin America, January 20, 2007)

…judges Francis’ ideas on the Church closed and ailing

  • You cannot be a good servant to others if you neglect your soul

‘Take heed to yourselves’ (Acts 20:28): this too is a word to the priests of all times. A well-intentioned activism exists but in which a person forgets his own soul, his own spiritual life, his own being with Christ. In the Breviary Reading for his liturgical Memorial, St Charles Borromeo tells us every year anew: you cannot be a good servant to others if you neglect your soul. ‘Watch over yourselves.’ Let us also be attentive to our spiritual life, to our being with Christ. As I have often said, prayer and meditation on the Word of God is not time wasted for the care of souls, but is the condition for us to be able to be really in touch with the Lord, and thus to speak of the Lord to others from experience. ‘Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you guardians, to feed the Church of the Lord’ (Acts 20:28). (Benedict XVI. Lectio Divina, meeting with the Parish Priests of the Rome Diocese, March 10, 2011)

  • Missionary zeal is proof of a radical experience of ever renewed fidelity

I therefore say to you, dear friends of the Movements: act so as to ensure that they are always schools of communion, groups journeying on in which one learns to live in the truth and love that Christ revealed and communicated to us through the witness of the Apostles, in the heart of the great family of his disciples. May Jesus’ exhortation ceaselessly re-echo in your hearts: ‘Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven’ (Mt 5: 16). Bring Christ’s light to all the social and cultural milieus in which you live. Missionary zeal is proof of a radical experience of ever renewed fidelity to one’s charism that surpasses any kind of weary or selfish withdrawal. Dispel the darkness of a world overwhelmed by the contradictory messages of ideologies! There is no valid beauty if there is not a truth to recognize and follow, if love gives way to transitory sentiment, if happiness becomes an elusive mirage or if freedom degenerates into instinct. (Benedict XVI. Message to the participants of the Second World Congress on Ecclesial Movements and New Communities, May 22, 2006)

  • A Pastor supervises not as a bureaucrat but as one who sees from God’s viewpoint

Perhaps these are the two central concepts for this office of ‘shepherd’: to nourish by making the Word of God known, not only with words but by testifying to it for God’s will and to protect it with prayer, with the full commitment of one’s life. Pastors, the other meaning which the Fathers saw in the Christian word ‘episkopoi’ is: someone who supervises not as a bureaucrat but as one who sees from God’s viewpoint, who walks towards the heights of God and in the light of God sees this small community of the Church. This is also important for a pastor of the Church, for a priest, an ‘episkopos’ who sees from the viewpoint of God, who tries to see from on high with God’s criterion, not according to his own preferences, but rather as God judges; to see from God’s heights and thus loving with God and through God. (Benedict XVI. Lectio Divina, meeting with the parish priests of the Rome Diocese, March 10, 2011)

  • Pastors must make themselves examples to the flock, knowing how to resist enemies

It is the shepherd’s task to feed and tend his flock and take it to the right pastures. Grazing the flock means taking care that the sheep find the right nourishment, that their hunger is satisfied and their thirst quenched. The metaphor apart, this means: the word of God is the nourishment that the human being needs. Making God’s word ever present and new and thereby giving nourishment to people is the task of the righteous Pastor. And he must also know how to resist the enemies, the wolves. He must go first, point out the way, preserve the unity of the flock. Peter, in his discourse to priests, highlights another very important thing. It is not enough to speak. Pastors must make themselves ‘examples to the flock’ (5: 3). When it is lived, the word of God is brought from the past into the present. It is marvellous to see how in saints the word of God becomes a word addressed to our time. […] This is what being a Pastor means a model for the flock: living the word now, in the great community of holy Church. (Benedict XVI. Homily, June 29, 2009)

 …judges Francis’ words in his first appearance

  • The indissoluble bond between romanum and petrinum implies and requires universal concern

Thus, humbly attached to Christ, our One Lord, together we can and must encourage that ‘exemplarity’ of the Church of Rome which is genuine service to our Sister Churches across the world. The indissoluble bond between romanum and petrinum implies and indeed requires the Church of Rome’s participation in the universal concern of her Bishops. […] Rome is a very large Diocese and truly a very special one, because of the universal concern that the Lord has entrusted to his Bishop. (Benedict XVI. Address to the Clergy of Rome, May 13, 2005)

…judges Francis’ ideas on the norms of the Church

  • The Code of Canon Law contains the norms for the good of the person and of the communities of the whole Mystical Body

The Congress that is being celebrated on this important anniversary treats a theme of great interest because it highlights the close link that exists between canon law and Church life in accordance with the desire of Jesus Christ. On this occasion I am therefore anxious to reaffirm a fundamental concept that imbues canon law. The ius ecclesiae is not only a body of norms formulated by the Ecclesial Legislator for this special people who form the Church of Christ. It is, in the first place, the authoritative declaration on the part of the Ecclesial Legislator of the duties and rights that are based in the sacraments and are therefore born from the institution by Christ himself. This series of juridical realties treated by the Code forms a wonderful mosaic in which are portrayed the faces of all the faithful, lay people and Pastors and all the communities, from the universal Church to the particular Churches. […] Moreover, the Code of Canon Law contains the norms formulated by the Ecclesial Legislator for the good of the person and of the communities of the whole Mystical Body which is the Holy Church. […] The Church thus recognizes in her laws the nature as well as the means and pastoral function for pursuing her own end, which – as is well known – is the achievement of the ‘salus animarum’. (Benedict XVI. Address on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the promulgation of the Code of Canon Law, January 25, 2008)

  • The laws of the Church set us free to adhere to Jesus

Since canon law outlines the rules necessary for the People of God to orient themselves effectively to their own end, one understands how important it is that this law be loved and observed by all the faithful. Church law is first and foremost lex libertatis: a law that sets us free to adhere to Jesus. It is therefore necessary to be able to present to the People of God, to the new generations and to all who are called to make canon law respected, its concrete bond with the life of the Church, in order to safeguard the delicate interests of the things of God and to protect the rights of the weakest, of those who have no other means by which to make their presence felt, and also in defence of those delicate ‘goods’ which every member of the faithful has freely received – the gift of faith, of God’s grace, first of all -, which the Church cannot allow to be deprived of adequate protection on the part of the Law. (Benedict XVI. Address to the participants in the Study Congress on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the promulgation of the Code of Canon Law, January 25, 2008)

More persecution by those who hate Tradition and Prayer.

PF (who is the FP – as in The Book of Revelation). The devil turns everything upside down and back to front. It is a very cunning trick – when he was first elected people thought how quaint it was that he took the name of this very popular saint – a saint who was asked to rebuild Christ’s Church. Anyhow, I digress.

We are all familiar with the tactics. In this case, of this beautiful traditional order of nuns – “Little Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer” who were relieved of their vows. They spread the word  when they published this :

Communique from the Little Sisters of Mary

Monday, June 3, 2019

Dear Friends,

Dear Families, 

As you know, for the last two years, we have had difficulties with the ecclesiastical authorities: difficulties which have their origin in a difference with the Bishop of Laval who wants to impose the splitting up of the EHPAD management associations which had been amalgamated only in 2014, with his encouragement, in order to better respond to to-day’s challenges.

Further, we understood that the ecclesiastical authorities also wanted us to change our way of living our religious life, to follow modern orientations…

At the end of these two years,

having looked to remaining faithful, as much to the Church as to the charism granted by Our Lord to Mother Marie de la Croix,

having tried to find, many many times, a path of dialogue with Rome,

having offered peaceful solutions,

no agreement having been found, the authorities in Rome in charge of the Consecrated Life have now decided to choose to release us from our religious vows. Whilst it is true that in the context of the moral pressure and the impasse that we found ourselves in, we were driven, last October, against our profound wishes, to ask to be released from our vows, since no other solution had ever been offered to enable us to remain in communion with the Church: we are profoundly wounded by this and remain sadly surprised that Rome has preferred to accept that request, rather than accepting the peaceful solutions which we had put forward and which were possible.

Therefore today, with the exception of five sisters (in Mayenne) who have accepted Rome’s decisions, and their being put under a commission, we are no longer a religious congregation. 

Certainly, we have not lived through these two sorrowful years in order to lose the treasure which is for us the charism received from Mother Marie de la Croix. We want to continue to live together, in a life of prayer and service. Ecce!

We are asked to give up our religious habit and our religious houses.

The hierarchy of the Church has no doubt believed it right to change as far as we are concerned: we take note of that…Fiat!

Paradoxically and mysteriously, we live perhaps more than ever what is at the heart of our vocation: following in the way of Our Lady, to take our part of suffering in the fulfilment of the plan of our Redemption, in reparation, for the saving of souls, for the sanctification of priests, for the Church so damaged by all sorts of scandals, for the world. If Christ, our souls’ spouse, judges us worthy of carrying such a Cross, we must render thanks to him, in all things.

We thank all those who have helped and encouraged us and who will continue to do so, wishing to follow the way in the spirit and the values which have always been ours. Magnificat!

The Little Sisters of Mary – France
Community of Saint-Aignan (France-53)
Community of Lagardelle (France-31)
Community of Castelnau (France-31)

The tactics employed here were very similar to that of the Friars of the Immaculate.

This was a thriving traditional order to which Pope Francis appointed a commissioner in 2013 and the seminary was closed.

“…Announcing Volpi’s appointment in July 2013, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life also issued a decree saying Pope Francis required all the friars “to celebrate the liturgy according to the ordinary rite,” the post-Vatican II Mass, and that use of the extraordinary form, the pre-Vatican II Latin Mass, “must be explicitly authorized by the competent authorities for every religious or community that makes a request.”

In Dec. 2017 Rorate Caeli reported that the destruction of the Friars and the sisters was almost complete.

See our original post at: https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2018/01/19/fragmented-and-fearful-prophecy-fulfilled-part-4/

We responded  (on 10th June) with an email of support to these good holy nuns:

+AMDG+

Dear holy nuns, our sisters in Christ,

The persecution in the world is only just beginning… but Christ comes soon. He will never abandon you and as long as you find a way not to abandon the work he has given you as a vocation; (I am thinking mostly of the vocation to pray and adore Him in order to save souls) then you fight the battle that matters most; on a deeply powerful and necessary spiritual level. His remnant crusade prayer army exists and the fact that most true Catholics will have to operate underground, has been prophesied. You will be one of the first.

In particular, the release from vows means that you will not be forced to accept the blasphemous form of the new ‘mass’ which will abolish the daily Sacrifice, as prophesied in Daniel.

We, at remnantdisciplesjtm.com will join with you in prayer through our worldwide network.

Viva Christo Rey!

God bless+++

Lifesite news reported on Fri Jun 7, 2019 :

“Vatican all but wipes out conservative order of nuns for ‘too much prayer’

… It was with an authoritarianism and in a context of moral harassment, initiated by the Bishop of Laval, Mgr Scherrer, that the ecclesiastical authorities preferred to reduce the Little Sisters of Mary the Redeemer to the lay state, on 23rd May 2019, rather than opting for a peaceful solution, repeatedly proposed by the Little Sisters, but never really considered by the Congregation in Rome!” the support association declares on its website.

Our suffering enables us to live our vocation more fully, say sisters

The sisters, for their part, say  they will continue to live their life of prayer and see their suffering as enabling them to live their vocation even more deeply.

See the complete  article here: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/vatican-all-but-wipes-out-conservative-order-of-nuns-for-too-much-prayer

Tradition–minded priests and lay people are also being  targeted. It is just part of the deconstruction of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Much has already been deconstructed:

From our post at     https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2018/01/19/fragmented-and-fearful-prophecy-fulfilled-part-4/

Laudato Si ( environmentalism, humanism,) ;

Pope Prayer videos (socialism, communism);

Amoris Laetitia (errors on Divine teaching pronounced);,

    • Modernist cardinals and bishops who announce doctrines that twist Jesus’ teachings to suit the secular world – Cardinals Kasper, Daneels  and many more;
    • The destruction of the Friars of the Immaculate a Traditional order, which was growing in vocations
    • Replacing traditional bishops with liberal ones; etc…e.g. Cardinal Burke; The Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments – with 16 new members replacing traditionalist ones; over Christmas (2016)  Pope Francis personally ordered 3 priests to be dismissed from their duties in the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith; Cardinal Burke removed as head of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s Supreme Court, in order to become the patron of the Order of the Knights of Malta (which is usually an honorary position); the Wall Street Journal on 8 Sept. 2016  and Weekend Australian reported that Cardinal Pell, as pope’s finance chief had discovereda total of €1.4 billion “tucked away” off the books”. He organized an audit, but it was disallowed.  “In June, the Vatican announced it had been scrapped, and soon many of his wide ranging powers were handed to others.” (see more details on this in future post: Prophecies Fulfilled Part 6)

Headline: 3 Feb.2017 – “Vatican event features array of population controllers – and, it seems, no expert to counter them.” (lifeSite News). This will contribute to the destruction of Catholic teaching on morality and the value of life. It will also greatly enhance the pope’s document on the environment and the idea that man is nature’s greatest enemy.

Extract of Prophecy from message 0955 In the Book of Truth (November 1, 2013 @ 11:17pm.)

“…Soon, all those who have led My Church in the past, all those who provide God’s children with the True Word of God, within My Church, and all those who will remain loyal to the Truth, will be shoved to one side

The Catholic Church will make a number of alarming statements, as to why it has to change and amend every part of its structure.

All these changes will come about quickly, in the future, and the spread of these things will astonish many. Amidst it all, there will be confusion, fear, sadness and great distress. 

My Church will become so fragmented that all trust within its walls will be broken. This will create a great fear and then, in a manner which will not seem clear at first, the Catholic Church will become a leading force in the new one world religion. This new abomination will declare a great love for the world’s poor and hungry. But it will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church. My Church, however, will continue to live.” 

Another prophecy given on April 13 2013:

“The Catholic Church is now about to enter the worst persecution in its history

My dearly beloved daughter, I wish to give encouragement to all of you who believe in Me and My Messages contained within this Book – The Book of Truth.

When man follows Me and offers himself to Me, he must emulate all of My Traits… However, when you truly abandon yourself into My Care, you will suffer for this. You will be treated with cruelty and every attempt will be made to pour scorn upon you.

Christians will always be targeted by those who want to change God’s Laws to fit into their sinful pursuit of pleasure and selfish desires. The Catholic Church is now about to enter the worst persecution in its history and it will be turned upside down and inside out. The attack has been planned for decades and carefully constructed. How the saints in Heaven weep at the catastrophic events which will now unfold at a speed which will shock even those who do not believe in these Messages.

Confusion will result, as many sacred servants will become powerless as everything they held dear will be questioned and then overturned. They will be challenged and bullied in My Name, from within their own ranks…”

Read the whole message here:  https://missionofsalvation.com/message-0762/

While the following message applies to priests, it is also worth reading:

“…Those of you who will continue to perform the traditional Mass will be tormented until you agree to abandon it entirely. Many amongst your religious orders will betray you to the enemy behind your back. You will, just like my Son before you, be taken before those who claim to be your peers and be accused of heresy, for insisting on continuing to show respect for the most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Those who do the bidding of the false prophet will need much prayer, for some of them are blind to the Truth

You must, when the time comes, refuse to accept direction from those who will desecrate the Word of God and through their lies and new obscene doctrines, will mislead many.Those who accept any distortion of the Mass or the Holy Sacraments, will be answerable to my Son...

Pray, pray, pray that the Truth will be seen and that lies will be exposed for what they are – an affront to my Son’s agonizing Crucifixion.

Your beloved Mother

Mother of Salvation.”

Extract from Message 1335 on  06 May 2015

“… All that is held sacred in My Father’s Heavenly Kingdom is being decimated by man, whose heart no longer feels love for his Creator God the Most High. Those who remain faithful to Him, and who love and cherish Him, will feel His Pain within their hearts like a sword, which pierces and inflicts terrible suffering but which will not kill. For those with true love for God will be unable to separate from Him because they are attached to Him by an umbilical cord, which cannot be severed….”

Expect much more deconstruction and “restructuring’ (and therefore, persecution) will be in the new document “the New Evangelisation” due to be released at the end of June, and also at the Amazonian synod due to be held in October.Stay alert and do not be deceived!!!

JtM CP Meeting on Thurs. 25 April revisited: The last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it

AM+DG

This refers to the messages posted for our JtM CP meeting on Thursday 25th April. There were 2 messages on 22 July 2013 and I posted the wrong one. Anyhow, I guess maybe we were meant to. I mean we must read and reread the messages over and over. We actually opened up on the following message (as per my notebook). I guess I was tired last night, but something made me go back and check the post this morning.

After we read it at the prayer meeting,  a prayer group member commented that what we read in the message about the Third Secret was, is the reason that so many priests and bishops have condemned the Book of Truth. The Truth had never been fully revealed, and to read it now is much too confronting for them. It actually confirms the prophecy of St Francis of Asissi. But I don’t think many priests are familiar with prophecies in general, especially the ones for today: St Francis of Assisi, La Salette, Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich, and even Fatima.

Mother of Salvation: The last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it

22 July 2013 @  8:17pm

My child, the deceit, which the world will face, will be so difficult to discern, that only those who surrender to God and place all their trust in my Son, will be able to endure the trials, which lie ahead.

I gave the world the prophecies in 1917, but the last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it for those within the Catholic Church.

The last secret of Fatima still remains unknown to God’s children, although part of it was revealed to you on  26 January, 2012.  Very few within the Church are privy to this. Now, the next part of the final secret of Fatima must be revealed, so that I can warn humanity of the consequences of ignoring my intervention to help save souls.

The Church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God. They – and there are twenty of them who control from within – have created the greatest deceit. They have elected a man, not of God, while the Holy Father, accorded the Crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.

The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the Crown of Peter in the end times. One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner. The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the Catholic Church, but of all Churches which honour my Father and who accept the Teachings of my Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.

There can only be one head of the Church on earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain pope until his death. Anyone else, who claims to sit in the Seat of Peter, is an imposter.
This deceit has one purpose, to turn souls over to Lucifer and there is little time for such souls, who will be none the wiser, to be saved.

Children, you must only heed one warning, now. Do not deviate from the Teachings of my Son. Question every new doctrine, which may be presented to you and which professes to come from my Son’s Church on earth. The truth is simple.  It never changes. My Son’s legacy is very clear. Do not allow anyone to cloud your judgement.

Soon the Fatima prophecies will make sense. All is now taking place before a disbelieving world, but sadly, very few will understand until it is too late. Pray, pray, pray my most Holy Rosary, as often as possible, every single day, in order to dilute the effect of the evil, which surrounds you.

Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Prophecy of France: “the first to be wounded, torn, persecuted”

AM+DG

 

“The storm will break over

France where I wanted to show the prodigies of My

Divine Heart and unveil its secrets. My children, France

will be the “first to be wounded, torn, persecuted.”

( Marie-Julie Jahenny, June 1882)

France is the eldest daughter of the Church and Jesus has a special Love for her.  She was chosen to reveal the treasures of His most Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.  Another special saint  – St Catherine Laboure from France was chosen to bring to the world the Miraculous Medal.

The title ofeldest daughter of the Church’ stems from the fact that France was the first entirely Christian nation. This occurred after the conversion of King Clovis in the 6th century. Her status as ‘daughter of the Church’ was due to the unique status of Frankish kings being anointed and crowned by bishops, which was not a standard thing for a barbaric king back then.

Notre Dame is the icon of Christendom. It is 800 years old and took 200 years to build. It was the pride of the French nation and all its people; regardless of whether or not they were Catholic. Indeed it symbolised the historic beauty, and timeless treasure that is the Church itself.

The name, Notre Dame, means “Our Lady”. Our Lady is the Mother of the Church. The tragic fire was not only an attack on the Church but on our Blessed Mother. The demise of the cathedral of Notre Dame is symbolic of the Church being attacked and falling into ruins. Our Lady-  “Notre Dame” – is asking us to take notice of the destruction of the Church – the Mystical Body of her Son.

The fact that it happened during Holy Week is especially symbolic.  Jesus was betrayed, falsely accused, scourged, mocked, persecuted, suffered, attacked, mocked, stripped and crucified. This is happening to the Mystical Body of Christ today, once again.

The symbolism inherent in the destruction of Notre Dame gives us much to meditate upon:

  • the hierarchical structure, with its priests and bishops; toppling
  • the teachings of Christ which are being reinterpreted – marriage and sexuality; conversion versus all religions lead us to God;
  • the inhabitants of France that once possessed this beautiful church, helplessly knelt outside on their knees in prayer and solemnity; watching the fire destroy their most precious possession, moved to tears
  • special treasures were saved – the Blessed Sacrament; the high altar; the crown of thorns, the Cross; the medieval statue of the Madonna and Child; the Rose stained-glass window, the organ and many precious pieces of art.

 

 

 

 

 

  • there was a brave priest, who ignored the danger, who ran into the midst of the fiery destruction and saved what was precious and holy.
  • The spire, which rose high into the heavens – is no more. The building is largely destroyed. Similarly, the teachings, liturgy and prayer have been attacked so that these holy things can no more reach to the heavens.

We will need many brave priests such as Fr. Fournier, in the future. In fact we must pray for all the brave priests who are persecuted because they stand up for the true teachings of the Church and its true (spiritual) treasures

The gates of hell will not prevail. The church in the future will be a much smaller church, but the true teachings and liturgy that give praise and honour to God will be preserved.

 To conclude- an excerpt from “ The fire of Notre Dame is a “religious” event (English translation from the French):

“ Notre Dame de Paris was above all an expression of the love of a faithful people for their God and for the Mother of God, an immense sign rising in the heart of the city. How could she remain standing except as an empty shell, if love should fail? Is not this what God meant to men by letting this tragedy happen?”

Fragmented and Fearful: Prophecy Fulfilled (Part 4)

AMDG

Extract of Prophecy from message 0955 In the Book of Truth (November 1, 2013 @ 11:17pm.)

“…Soon, all those who have led My Church in the past, all those who provide God’s children with the True Word of God, within My Church, and all those who will remain loyal to the Truth, will be shoved to one side

The Catholic Church will make a number of alarming statements, as to why it has to change and amend every part of its structure.

All these changes will come about quickly, in the future, and the spread of these things will astonish many. Amidst it all, there will be confusion, fear, sadness and great distress. 

My Church will become so fragmented that all trust within its walls will be broken. This will create a great fear and then, in a manner which will not seem clear at first, the Catholic Church will become a leading force in the new one world religion. This new abomination will declare a great love for the world’s poor and hungry. But it will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church. My Church, however, will continue to live.”

Part 4: Fragmented

  • Destruction of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate

This was a thriving traditional order to which Pope Francis appointed a commissioner in 2013 and the seminary was closed.

“…Announcing Volpi’s appointment in July 2013, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life also issued a decree saying Pope Francis required all the friars “to celebrate the liturgy according to the ordinary rite,” the post-Vatican II Mass, and that use of the extraordinary form, the pre-Vatican II Latin Mass, “must be explicitly authorized by the competent authorities for every religious or community that makes a request.”

https://www.ncronline.org/news/vatican/pope-met-franciscan-seminarians-after-orders-seminary-closed

In Dec. 2017 Rorate Caeli reported that the destruction of the Friars and the sisters was almost complete.

  • It will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church

(Amoris Laetitiae is elevated to the magisterium through the back door.)

  • 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….”

  • Excerpts from The A – Z list of concerns with Pope Francis By John Henry Westen

Scalfari interviews: ‘Annihilation’ rather than hell?

In March 2015 in an interview with La Repubblica founder Eugenio Scalfari, the Pope suggested no person could go to hell, and proposed annihilation for those who fully reject God. …

… statement from the Pope’s latest exhortation Amoris Laetitia, in which he said, “No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!”

  • Luther, serious sin to convert

The Pope spoke to an audience before a statue of Luther in the Vatican just prior to his going to Sweden to help launch the 500th anniversary of Lutheranism. The Vatican issued a stamp featuring Luther and put out a document saying Catholics now recognize Martin Luther as a ‘witness to the gospel’

 

  • Proselytism is a grave sin

On another occassion he said it is a “very grave sin” to try to convert Orthodox to Catholicism: “There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism.”

 

  • Multiplication of loaves

During the Angelus of June 2, 2013, he spoke about Christ’s miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes as taking place by “sharing.” “This is the miracle: rather than a multiplication it is a sharing, inspired 2017. Pope Francis said, “This is how the miracle takes place. It is not magic or sorcery. … Jesus managed to generate a current among his followers: they all went on sharing what was their own, turning it into a gift for the others; and that is how they all got to eat their fill. Incredibly, food was left over: they collected it in seven baskets.”

 The  Third  Secret and the Papacy Today

The Third Secret of Fatima states: “The last pope will be under the control of satan.”

  • This is confirmed by Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi (message #406, June 13 1989)fr-gobbi

This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.”

and also

  • Confirmed by (Jesuit) Fr Malachi Martin in 1998, who was present at the martinreading of the Third Secret in 1960 by Pope John XXIII. In this interview, Father Malachi Martin, when asked if the statement that “The last pope will be under the control of satan” is true and really part of the Third Secret,he replies “Yes. That is correct”.

When asked why he can’t reveal the truth IF THAT IS WHAT God asked, he replied that he has no authority to reveal the Secret. There is a structure in the Church, and he can’t take this authority away from them (Pope, bishops, cardinals). It is not his place, to do this.  See the following video- The last interview of Jesuit Fr. Malachi Martin by Art Bell in 1998.

  • Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich: “Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was anneundermined by a plan evolved by the secret sect, while storms were damaging it…” (13 May, 1820)

 

  • Pope Leo Xiii 18865d3e724f0d7021d003cc407e0f315cf9-pope-leo-xiii

“These most crafty enemies [the devils] have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.”

 

  • Third Secret of Fatima has also been confirmed in the Book of Truth:

“THE FINAL SECRET OF FATIMA REVEALS THE TRUTH OF SATAN’S EVIL SECT ENTERING THE VATICAN 

My daughter even the final secret of Fatima was not given to the world, because it revealed the truth of satan’s evil sect entering the Vatican.
 The last part of secret has not been revealed, in order to protect the wicked sect who entered the Vatican in great numbers since my mother’s appearance at the holy shrine of Fatima.(Message of 26th Jan. 2012)    

 This prophecy explains  it all very clearly:

MOTHER OF SALVATION: THE LAST SECRET OF FATIMA WAS NOT REVEALED, SO TERRIFYING WAS IT

“The church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God.
They – and there
are twenty of them who control from within – have created the greatest deceit.
They have elected a man, not of God
, while the Holy Father, accorded the crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.
The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the crown of Peter in the end times.pf-and-obama pope-benedict-xvi-benediction-in-hyde-park

 

 

 

 

One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner.
The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the catholic church, but of all churches which honour my father and who accept the teachings of My Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.
There can only be one head of the church on earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain Pope until his death.
Anyone else, who claims to sit in the seat of Peter, is an imposter.
This deceit has one purpose
, to turn souls over to Lucifer and there is little time for such souls, who will be none the wiser, to be saved”.

Reflection on words from prophet Joel

Tonight’s bible reading:  Joel 2:1-2; 10-17

[1] The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Phatuel. [2] Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land: did this ever happen in your days, or in the days of your fathers…

[10] The country is destroyed, the ground hath mourned: for the corn is wasted, the wine is confounded, the oil hath languished.

[11] The husbandmen are ashamed, the vinedressers have howled for the wheat, and for the barley, because the harvest of the field is perished. [12] The vineyard is confounded, and the fig tree hath languished: the pomegranate tree, and the palm tree, and the apple tree, and all the trees of the field are withered: because joy is withdrawn from the children of men. [13] Gird yourselves, and lament, O ye priests, howl, ye ministers of the altars: go in, lie in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: because sacrifice and libation is cut off from the house of your God. [14] Sanctify ye a fast, call an assembly; gather together the ancients, all the inhabitants of the land into the house of your God: and cry ye to the Lord: [15] Ah, ah, ah, for the day: because the day of the Lord is at hand, and it shall come like destruction from the mighty.

[16] Is not your food cut off before your eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God? [17] The beasts have rotted in their dung, the barns are destroyed, the storehouses are broken down: because the corn is confounded.

Reflection:

I opened directly on Joel 2: 10-17 and also my eye was drawn to the previous page Joel 2: verses 1-2.
In lines 16-17 I thought of how His Word appears to be overturned in order to be forgotten– whereby we would end up with no legacy. This is why the Jews pleaded and fasted- at the thought of their faith disappearing.

Yes the Day of The Lord comes indeed! And it is close. The reference is striking. Even more so because I had no idea there were so many perfectly applicable apocalyptic verses in the bible! And they all make sense right now. Thank you God for speaking with me and warning and reminding us as it encroaches.!
