The Importance of the Eucharist: Part 2 – What did Vatican II do to belief in the True Presence?

AM+DG

CCC on the Eucharist:

No. 1324: The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.(Lumen Gentium 11) The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministeries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.”

Part 2:

Pope Leo XIII

A very important figure is Pope Leo XIII who went into ecstasy after celebrating Mass one day in 1884. It was on the 13th October, exactly 33 years before the miracle at Fatima. His famous vision foretells the enemies and persecution of the Church, taking place today, which all relate to the Eucharist. It is appropriate that his ecstasy was after celebrating Mass, and that he composed the St Michael Prayer and made it mandatory– to be said after every Mass.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This brings us to these end times.

A Personal Testimony:

“It all began with Vatican II.

It was all about the Eucharist, but it was supposed to be a “pastoral council”, but in reality this “pastoral” concern was a veil, hiding the destruction which would follow.

At the time, we thought a Mass in the vernacular did not seem harmful, but the bishops went further than the Vatican II documents detailed. Not only did they change the Mass into the vernacular, they changed the prayers and even omitted them, and inserted new ones. The High Altars were removed in many churches and tables used for the celebration of Mass. The priest was called the “presider. The tabernacle was very often removed from the centre of the church. This meant that our gaze was now upon the priest, whose chair was now in the centre, rather than on Our Lord.

People stopped genuflecting, people often just give a little nod, or perhaps a bow. They (we) began treating Jesus like just any other person. We would shake hands and turn our backs and smile and even speak to the people behind, beside and around us – at a time when Jesus has just become present Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist. This was during the handshake of ‘peace’. But it did not feel like Christ’s Peace that he sends to His Apostles. It felt (still feels) like people congratulating or saying hi to one another. It takes our attention off Christ. Where is the sense of the Sacredness of the Mystery? Where is the honour due to the King of Heaven and Earth?  

I was one of the people who was fooled. I was young, I thought it was okay. I even became a Eucharistic Minister and thought I was serving the Church. But I began to question Communion in the hand. I found the Liturgy had not stopped changing, years after the changes began. One day, the priest did something unthinkable at a “Children’s liturgy” I couldn’t handle it any more and I went searching. When I eventually found the Latin Mass (I thought it didn’t exist anymore) I felt like I was home.

All was as it should be. The congregation do not chat before or after Mass or need to be reminded to be silent, or to genuflect. Even the children are not a problem. Toddlers absorb the atmosphere. If they are noisy, parents sit where they can take the child outside for a bit, or down the back and then come back in. And we have sermons that teach us about Doctrine and Virtues, and Saints and Teachings of the Church.” (RD)

Another Personal Testimony:

“I had not been brought up, or even born, at the time of the traditional Mass. I had been raised in a Novus Ordo Church but I was still taught by some Marian nuns. Virtually no-one at school had much faith. They participated in all that we did but without thinking. I loved to spend quiet time in the school chapel. Unfortunately, my faith took a battering in early adulthood.

God never stopped reaching out and everytime I heard that a miracle had happened, I wanted to go and see! I longed for greater faith. Soon I discovered that God had prophets! He had not abandoned us at all. Why didn’t they teach me this at school? Or about all the miracles- such as the Miracle of Lanciano. Watching the movie of The story of Garabandal stirred my soul and made my cry with thanksgiving, love and yearning for God. First the transformation was within. But I was drawn to places where I could truly speak with God personally and deeply pray and meditate. To go apart or away from the world, helps me to draw close to God interiorly. Even Jesus would go away to a quiet and separate place to pray. He took his disciples aside, or out on a boat or up a mountain. There should be no stigma attached to going to a special place to pray. I often visited the chapel of the Poor Clare Nuns early in the morning for Eucharistic Adoration and sometimes Mass.  I was a young woman by that time and had a baby. I took her with me. I felt the graces. I read all about St Alphonsus Liguori, St Clare (and St. Collete) and I learnt a fostered devotion to the Eucharist in my heart. Depending where you went to Mass, it was not reverent and often very distracting. I found it hard to concentrate for 45 mins whereas I could spend hours at Adoration!

In about 2002, I went to my first Latin Mass because we moved house and I had been looking to attend one- having heard that they truly were reverent. I didn’t understand it all but I felt happy. The people were friendly, so was the priest; it was a small community. It was beautiful. Returning to the Novus Ordo Mass was increasingly unsatisfying. Some priests do a wonderful job of insisting on Eucharistic reverence and give good sermons as well; but not everyone seems to understand. Confession is not readily available. It is not encouraged. I cannot always attend a Latin Mass but after Bishop Schneider wrote that the faithful always have to right to receive communion kneeling and on the tongue, I sent it to my PP and insisted, despite my initial embarrassment, at only receiving Our Lord in this manner. I also was educated by God and St. Paul, about women having their heads covered in church.

The more I learn about VII, the more sad I become. I was ripped off. My education sorely lacked formation, even in a Catholic school led by many Marian nuns. Why did they change the Mass? It makes me want to cry when I realise and see how Catholics do not draw close to Our Lord anymore; they do not perceive His Presence. It seems to me that only those who frequent Confession, Mass and Adoration, and look to their own spiritual life, who pray frequently, have any Faith left. The rest have faith in man- and don’t know that’s what it is. They admire a heretic bishop because he’s such a great personality- such a nice, friendly, charismatic guy- they forget ‘yes, so is Satan!’ It breaks my heart. We do what we can but I feel a review of Vatican II needs to occur. And the TLM needs to be offered everywhere. Otherwise there will soon be nothing left. I can see where the changes are leading. God has warned us and all has occurred as He said. We love you, Jesus!! Don’t let the Church forsake your Eucharistic Presence!” (RCoM).

“Ever less importance is being given to the Holy Eucharist”

Garabandal was a Eucharistic message. Our Lady’s second message was on June 18, 1965. St. Michael the Archangel was given the task of communicating the message to Conchita. Tears rolled down Conchita’s face as she listened:

“ Since my message of October 18 has not been heeded and made known to the world, I tell you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now, it is brimming over. Many cardinals, many bishops, and many priests are following the way to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Ever less importance is being given to the Holy Eucharist. You must turn the wrath of God away from you by your efforts. …”

Notice the development of the message: cup filling up, now brimming over. The next sentence is the cause  –bishops and priests on road to perdition, and the worst part of all – ever less importance given to the Eucharist. And guess what? God is angry!

It is not just a matter of less importance to the Eucharist , but the message seems to say that it is accelerating – it is given “ever less” (becoming worse) So fifty years later, after the synods of 2014 and 2015, we are given “Amoris Laetitia”. Now the Eucharist can be given to unworthy souls – those in mortal sin, who have separated themselves from God, or who did not have the Faith to begin with. And we know what St Paul said  – that we would be  “guilty of the Body and Blood of Our Lord”.

This also impacted the Sacrament of Penance, because people think that they do not have to go to Confession. They can be divorced and remarried (without annulment) – and thus living in a state  mortal sin , and keep receiving Our Lord.

Then last October – the ultimate betrayal and mockery. Pagan idols were worshipped, and bowed down to, and carried in procession into a church (mockery of a Blessed Sacrament procession?) and left there for people to worship. Well we are thankful that these idols were thrown into the River Tiber. But they were also used in a Stations of Cross ceremony by those attending the Amazonian Synod. The final insult, however, occurred when they put a bowl of earth with plants on the altar of the closing Mass. It wasn’t just a floral decoration. Experts and people who recognized what was happening explained: it is part of pagan worship. The earth has blood mixed with it; the plants were red (also symbolic) – it was a pagan ritual bowl!!!!

Pagan symbols on the same altar, and in a holy, Catholic Church, where the Holy Sacrifice of the Body and blood of Our Lord was being offered? This makes me very sad. These churches would have needed to be purified and exorcised and reconsecrated and lots and lots of penance required.

The current man sitting on the chair of Peter (the False Prophet) has done his utmost to destroy any true Faith which remains. Apostasy is spreading like wildfire.

The current state of health around the world has been an excuse to hit the Catholic Church where it will do the most damage. Masses were severely curtailed. People were told by bishops, they could watch it being live-streamed from home. Slowly, Masses were again available, but severely restricted in numbers, and with many restrictions to inhibit the praise and worship that we would normally expect.(e.g. no communal singing, no gatherings of people, social distancing ( this stops us feeling like a community); in some places masks are worn by some people (even some priests). In fact, Church services were deemed to be non-essential services – when gyms, beauty parlours, liquor stores, tattoo parlours were not.

How did the whole of the western world turn into such a dictatorship?

Well Our Lady of Fatima warned us against the errors or Russia!

Warnings about the Eucharist

We were warned. Jesus told us well in advance. He sent His Mother to warn us many times – hundreds of years in advance. He never gave up. He sent more and more messengers. It seems the only one who took all this seriously was Pope Leo XIII, but they got rid of his remedy. (i.e. the St Michael’s Prayer and the prayers after Mass). They also ignored Our Lady’s instruction to release the Third Secret by 1960, because after that it would be too late. Well, Pope John XXIII ignored that instruction, and all the popes after him. Also the instruction about consecrating Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, in communion with all the bishops.

But God is Good and He continues to care for his people. When all His messengers were ignored, He sent His last messenger. In fact, this time He gave us so much information that we would have an advantage over the enemy. He tells us what is to come. The Book of Truth comes in 5 volumes-  a LOT of the prophecies have been fulfilled.  This is another work in progress but just 2 examples: The “ousting” of Pope Benedict from the Vatican foretold years in advance; and the warning not to accept any world-wide vaccination plan because it will kill us.

Jesus also warned us about paganism in the Church – see our series of messages. (see menu item on Home Page of this site).

I thought it interesting that Abp. Vigano,  Bp. Schneider and others have started to comment on Vatican II.

Bp Schneider on the Eucharist:

“…We are witnessing a unique situation: It is for the first time in the History of the Church that the public celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice has been prohibited almost on a worldwide scale. Under the pretext of the (Cvd) epidemic, the inalienable right of the Christians to the public celebration of the Holy Mass has been infringed, disproportionately and unjustifiably…”

He also stated:

Bishops who not only did not care but directly prohibited their faithful the access to the sacraments, especially to the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist and the sacrament of Penance, behaved themselves as fake shepherds, who seek their own advantage….

 Thus says the Lord God: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep. … Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: Because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: Thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves.” (Ez. 34:2-10)”

He explains why the Eucharistic Presence is important to us:

“… If you take away the Real Presence, how will you be able to pay to His most sacred humanity the respect and honor which are its due? As Man, our Lord is present only in Heaven and in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Through the Eucharist we can draw near to the living Savior in person, and see Him and converse with Him. Without this presence, Divine worship becomes an abstraction. Through this presence we go straight to God and approach Him as during His mortal life.  …

 But with the Eucharist we can actually come and adore Him like the shepherds; we can prostrate ourselves before Him like the Magi; we need no longer regret our not having been present at Bethlehem or on Calvary.

… The Church wants to have a living worship because she possesses her living Savior on earth.

About the impact of Vatican II, he states:

“…The situation of the public cessation of Holy Mass and sacramental Holy Communion during the Covid-19 epidemic is so unique and serious that one can discover behind all of this a deeper meaning. This event has come almost fifty years after the introduction of Communion in the hand (in 1969) and a radical reform of the rite of Mass (in 1969/1970) with its protestantizing elements (Offertory prayers) and its horizontal and instructional style of celebration (freestyle moments, celebration in a closed circle and towards the people). The praxis of Communion in the hand over the past fifty years has led to an unintentional and intentional desecration of the Eucharistic Body of Christ on an unprecedented scale. For over fifty years, the Body of Christ had been (mostly unintentionally) trampled by the feet of clergy and laity in Catholic churches around the world. The stealing of sacred Hosts has also been increasing at an alarming rate. The praxis of taking Holy Communion directly with one’s own hands and fingers resembles ever more the gesture of taking common food. In not a few Catholics, the practice of receiving Communion in the hand has weakened faith in the Real Presence, in trans-substantiation and in the divine and sublime character of the sacred Host. The Eucharistic presence of Christ has, over time, unconsciously become for these faithful a kind of holy bread or symbol. Now the Lord has intervened and deprived almost all the faithful of assisting at Holy Mass and sacramentally receiving Holy Communion….”

  • Book of Truth Message 0413

7 May 2012 @ 6:19pm

Many Popes have been prisoners in the Holy See, surrounded by Masonic Groups

“… To My Catholic Church, even though you caused torment as a result of evil sin know that I will never forsake you, although you have sinned. But know this.

Your faith in Me is not as strong as it should be. You do not love Me as you once did.

You were taught the truth by My Peter upon whose rock you were built. And what did you do?

You built thick stone walls around you.

This caused a lack of communication with those whom you needed to feed with My Body and Blood so that their souls could be nourished.

The respect required of you in administering My Most Holy Eucharist was lost when you demeaned My Presence.

When Vatican II declared new rules they were introduced by those evil Masonic forces from within your corridors.

They cunningly presented new ways to administer My Holy Eucharist which are insulting to Me.

Your so called tolerant teachings proclaimed a series of lies including the refusal to acknowledge the power of St Michael the Archangel.

He is the protector of the Church against Satan. Those forces among you knew this. This is why you stopped all prayers requesting his help before Me at the Holy Mass.

Then you perpetrated the biggest untruth that Hell was not to be feared. That it was just a metaphor. For this lie, accepted as the truth by many of God’s children, has meant the loss of billions of souls.

How you offend Me. For those humble and sacred servants among you I ask that you go back to My Teachings.            

You have suffered because of the way you have offended Me.

Never think that I am blaming the many Holy Popes who have sat in the seat of Peter. Their mission has always been protected.

Many Popes have been prisoners in the Holy See surrounded by Masonic groups who do not represent God.

They hate God and have spent fifty years spreading untruths about the Mercy of God.

Their works have led to the collapse of the Catholic Church.

This was not an accident. It was deliberately and cunningly plotted in order to destroy the faith of the Church. To destroy the homage of ordinary Catholics to the One True God.

For this you will now be cast aside into the wilderness. After Pope Benedict, you will be led by Me, from the Heavens.

Oh how you have made Me weep.

I call on all of My sacred servants who know the truth to stand up and follow Me, your Jesus, to spread the truth of My Teachings in humble servitude. You must find the courage and the strength to rise from the ashes.

Above all, reject the lies which will shortly be presented to you by the False Prophet. ( * see below)

He will merge the Catholic Church with other churches, including pagan churches, to become one abomination, a one world church without a soul.

Your Jesus

*Note that this message was in 2012. The “False Prophet” was elected in March of 2013, and since then we have seen many of his lies in preparation for the “one world” church.

Importance of Sacraments – Marriage and First Holy Communion

“…My daughter, please pray for My Vicar, Pope Benedict, for he is surrounded by masonic forces who are now making every effort to dethrone him, these evil forces have been infiltrating My Church since Vatican II and have diluted My Teachings. Many laws were passed which offend Me, especially the presentation of My Holy Eucharist by lay people. The lack of respect shown to Me and My Eternal Father, through new laws introduced to facilitate modern society has made Me cry with sadness.

The Most Holy Eucharist must be received on the tongue and not soiled by human hands. Yet this is precisely what My sacred servants have done. These laws were not passed by Me in Spirit. My sacred servants have been led down a path not in line with the Teachings of My apostles. Today My Sacraments are not taken very seriously, especially those who seek the Sacraments of Matrimony and the First Holy Communion.

The Vow of Matrimony is very serious, for remember it is a Sacrament and is made in the Presence of God the Father, yet for many it all about materialism and the exterior trappings. Many who receive the Sacrament of Matrimony do not acknowledge its importance thereafter. Many break their vows so easily. Why do they do this? Why pay lip service to this most holy union only to part soon afterwards? This is a mockery of one of the most important unions blessed by the Hand of My Eternal Father. Many people do not pay any heed of My Father’s Will that no man shall pull asunder such a union thereafter, yet many people divorce, which is a law not recognized by My Father. Divorce is an easy way to run from your responsibilities. All marriages are made in Heaven. No man can destroy a marriage without offending My Father.

First Holy Communion
Receiving My Body in the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time is another example as to how I Am mocked. So many parents pay no heed to the importance of their children receiving the Bread of Life. They are more concerned as to how well-dressed their children are, rather than the wonderful Gift they are receiving. This Gift will lead them to salvation. Yet the materialism, which surrounds the event, has nothing to do with their souls. For Me the saddest part is that these little children are not being told about Me. The Love I have for little children is all-encompassing. When they receive the Holy Eucharist, in the full knowledge as to what they are receiving, then their souls become pure. The more they receive Me in this way, the stronger will their faith be.

Remember, without the Sacraments, your faith becomes weak. After a time, if your soul is bereft of My special blessings, it becomes dormant. All faith in Me and My Eternal Father disappears in time with only a tiny flicker of recognition flaring up from time to time. Return to Me through the Sacraments. Show respect for the Sacraments in the way you are supposed to and you will truly feel My Presence again.

Remember, the Sacraments are there for a reason, for they are the nutrients you need for eternal life of the soul. Without them your soul will die.

I love you all. Please embrace Me properly, by respecting the Sacraments given to you as a Gift from God the Almighty Father.

Your loving Saviour
King of Mankind, Jesus Christ
