“To the traitors of My Church, including the laity, I have this to say…”

AM+DG

The destruction of the Church continues unabated. It all started in 2013 with the “election” of the man who currently sits on the chair of Peter.  Then there were the  2 “synods” in 2014 and 2015. In Germany at this time the bishops are continuing this destruction. Sadly to say, we in Australia, are in the middle of a “Plenary Council”. See the 2 articles (beneath the Book of Truth excerpt.

Excerpt from the Book of Truth

16 December 2014 @ 11:00pm; Message 1291
“… The Word of God will always have its detractors and it is never embraced, enthusiastically, by a secular world. When the day comes that you witness the merging of My Church and the secular world, be on your guard. My servants who remain loyal to Me and who publicly proclaim the Word, as it was given to humanity in the Holy Bible, are never popular. They may be tolerated but their voices are rarely heard and the Truth is usually dismissed with disdain.

There are those amongst you who promote yourselves as being teachers of My Word, who spread untruths about the Word of God, though you hide behind carefully chosen words. I know why you do this and it is not to help Me to salvage souls. Instead, you desire to draw souls away from Me, for you are against Me.

To the traitors of My Church, including the laity, I have this to say. Look after your own garden for it is neglected and the soil is infertile. Weeds have taken root and healthy plants will never grow unless you dig out the rot and replace the soil with a new and fertilized one. Only when you renovate your garden, and start afresh, can your garden yield life again. Otherwise there will be no life and all things in it will die. You will destroy not only your own life but those close to you for My adversary has no loyalty, even to those he seizes as slaves to carry out his vengeance against Me. …”

The Second Assembly of Australia’s Plenary Council is underway this week, and while the organisers have designated this session as part of the “celebration phase”, it is difficult to find anything to celebrate.

The Second Assembly of Australia’s Plenary Council is underway this week, and while the organisers have designated this session as part of the “celebration phase”, it is difficult to find anything to celebrate. The futile process, meant to radically transform the Church, has dragged on for more than four years, and is pleasing neither traditional nor liberal Catholics.

Sunday’s Opening Mass demonstrated the result of surrendering our Catholic identity to the chic spiritual currents of the day. The Mass showcased some of the liturgical novelties with which we are apparently to become familiar: an acknowledgment of the traditional occupants of the land, complete with didgeridoo and requisite smoking ceremony, all topped off with a fashionably-inclusive invocation of both male and female spirits.

Although a Plenary spokesman stated that the distinction between Aboriginal rituals and Catholic liturgy is always very clear, it is unlikely that most Catholics would notice any distinction. Amongst those who do acknowledge that the pagan rituals precede the Mass, instead of being melded into it, many would rightly realise that by their precedence, and by their very presence in a Catholic Church, Indigenous rituals are elevated to the same level as Catholic ones. This is especially true when an Aboriginal woman “asks permission” of the ancestral spirits before the liturgy can go ahead, as happened before this Mass.

In contrast with Sunday’s sorry display of syncretism, Monday’s closing Mass was offered in the Byzantine Rite and surprisingly, there were no Indigenous adornments to be found. It seems that only Roman Rite Catholics are to be subjected to pagan embellishments arbitrarily selected from Aboriginal spirituality.

While it isn’t known what the bishops in attendance thought of the innovations preceding the Opening Mass, it is to be hoped that at least some of them were perturbed by the scene. However, experience has shown that many of them already employ indigenous rituals in their Masses, occasionally donning Aboriginal-themed vestments[1] and face-paint[2], so it may not be realistic to expect any criticism from that quarter. The crosses handed to participants of the Assembly support the latter idea since they were decorated with Aboriginal-style patterns while the figure of Christ is conspicuously absent. A resolution has already been passed[3] to ensure every parish honours the “Traditional Custodians” in some way and Bishop Shane McKinley has reported that a new penitential rite is to be devised, one based on aboriginal spirituality.[4]

It will be evident to anyone who has watched the brief “Highlights” videos produced by the Plenary Assembly to see that the Church in Australia is experiencing an identity crisis.[5] Viewers would be hard pressed to find anything noticeably Catholic among its images, although the secular world might be impressed. Aboriginal rituals and music, dialogue – lots of dialogue, excited statements about ‘new beginnings’, ‘dreams’, ‘transformations’ and ‘courageous’ self-reflection abound, with a few references to Christ thrown in to appease the less-radical. If this is anything to go by, then our unique Catholic identity is sorely missing from proceedings.

Archbishop Julian Porteous of Hobart, wrote about this loss of identity[6] some months ago, after reading the working document released prior to the Second Assembly. He has been the most outspoken of the bishops in expressing his concerns with the overall Plenary process, and his strident criticism does something to compensate for the silence of his confreres.

In his article, Archbishop Porteous expressed concern for the Australian Catholic Church, stating that he believes the Church “has lost confidence in its identity and mission.” He wrote that the Plenary document failed to convey the Church’s primary mission, that of offering hope and unadulterated truth to the world. He reiterated the disquiet felt by many Catholics on seeing the Church reduced to a secular corporation, using language such as a “supportive and inclusive community” yet failing to express that great “mystery of the Church” which has inspired countless saints and martyrs.

Archbishop Porteous highlighted the vague terms often employed in the document along with a lack of concrete solutions to what are glaringly self-evident problems. He also correctly identified multiple instances where settled teaching is being directly challenged, such as by the request for wider use of the Third Rite of Reconciliation and by the insistent demand for women’s ordination. Archbishop Porteous wrote:

That decline of which he wrote is quite evident in the key points selected for debate at the Second Assembly: Healing; Repentance; Mission; Gender Equality; Eucharist; Formation; Governance and Environmentalism. Most of those topics would not be out of place in a secular organisation’s cultural sensitivity programme. Even the seemingly orthodox suggestion of studying the Sacramental life of the Church loses its significance in the context of calls for lay-preachers, female deacons and the eventual ordination of women.

Archbishop Porteous pointed to the Church’s sole task: that of proclaiming “that Jesus Christ is the way to salvation,” and chided the Plenary Council for failing in its fundamental obligation. As he observed, instead of “listening to what the spirit is saying,” the Plenary members have instead “listened to the spirit of the age.”

Fortunately, it remains within the grasp of ordinary Catholics to restore or shore up Catholic identity within their homes and families. Our displays of icons and crucifixes, our commitment to the Rosary and other devotions, our public witness at prayer vigils and processions and our education of our children, whether full-time or as a supplement, will all ensure that our unique Catholic identity is never lost. The institutional Church – where it diverges from the Church founded by Christ – cannot survive without Her Head. With Christ at the Head of our homes, we can ride out this temporary identity crisis, rejecting the novelties of the current age and “holding fast to that which is good.”[11]

We must applaud the efforts of those good shepherds, such as Archbishop Porteous and Bishops Schneider and Puthur, who try to put the brakes on the uncritical acceptance of new processes, models and approaches. Far from renewing or regenerating the Church, those novelties will ensure She is a prisoner to the spirit of the age, or worse, a victim of the mindset that only indigenous spirituality contains the authenticity which all men crave.”

 The Catholic Weekly, also published an article on the Plenary Council.Abp. Anthony Fisher,mentions the good points but disguises what he really wants to say about the bad things with phrases that soften the impact – e.g. “hard issues”. Abp. Julian Porteous, in the previous article, said it like it is. Both Atchbishops alluded to the spirit of the age”. Abp. Fisher acknowledged that the bishops of the Council were trying to conform their ideas to those of the ‘synodality movement which has called the pastors of the Church to listen to their people and discern alongside them rather than above them.’

A week of positives and negatives for the Plenary: Archbishop Anthony Fisher

Cautious optimism

As the four year process of the Fifth Plenary Council of Australia comes to an end, there have been both positives and negatives, Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP of Sydney said in an interview on its final day.He said he was cautiously optimistic about its achievements.“There’s been a direct engagement with some of the really ‘hard’ issues, like Indigenous issues, child sexual abuse and the place of women in the Church,” he told The Catholic Weekly newspaper. “Those discussions were sometimes very emotional and potentially very divisive. Yet in the end there was a high level of agreement on most of them.

“It’s much better that such matters were confronted directly rather than presenting a kind of faux unity by avoiding the hard issues,” he said.

A challenging process

“The assembly has offered some good thoughts on liturgy, marriage catechumenate, youth ministry, formation programs for lay leaders including those in rural and remote areas, and stewardship of the earth.”Other positives included a much greater appreciation of the place of the Eastern Catholic churches in Australia than has been seen in Church gatherings before now. It was always going to be difficult to hear, distill and then do justice to contributions from near a quarter of a million people down to two one-week assemblies and the processes in-between. And underrepresentation of ‘ordinary’ priests and indeed ordinary Catholics , including overseas-born ones, was also potentially distorting according to Archbishop Fisher.

Holding together

“Yet in the end, by God’s grace, the centre held.” Here the Archbishop was adverting to divisions that threatened to splinter the assembly, such as the protest by 60 or so members on Wednesday 6 July over failed motions on women and the Church.

“So much attention has been given to ‘governance’ and the role of women in church governance and ministry,” he said. But where are lay men in all of this, or mothers, or religious women and men, or Catholics whose principal vocation is in the world? All these are almost completely absent from the resolutions. There’s very little that speaks to the crisis of vocations to marriage and parenting, and to priestly and religious life.

“We have a whole chapter on the importance of the liturgy especially the Eucharist and Penance. Yet there are no positive proposals about how we will get the priests we need to celebrate those sacraments. Meanwhile fewer and fewer people availing themselves of those sacraments because of the decline of faith, affiliation and practice in Australia. If we don’t address this head-on with a major focus on evangelisation, we could end up with fine governance structures and imaginative liturgies but an empty church.”

“The assembly was structured in a way that created pressure upon the ‘determinative voters’—mostly bishops—to vote along the same lines as the other members (the ‘consultative voters’) in order to show they’d listened to the people. And there were other pressures from some of the members who were quite ideological and outspoken,” he said.

“I think we are clearly in a very different world to that of the previous Plenary Councils, where the bishops were seen as undisputedly the leaders of the Church and it was their task as pastors to decide the pastoral direction of the Church. This Plenary was very much set up so the bishops would listen and enact what others thought were the pastoral priorities.”

He said this was partly influenced by the spirit of the age and partly by developments in Church thinking.

“There’s a very different attitude to authority, leadership and hierarchy today – partly due to the spirit of the age which reduces truth to popular opinion, and partly due to the synodality movement which has called the pastors of the Church to listen to their people and discern alongside them rather than above them. So I would say some of this has come from the heart of the Church and some of it is coming from other places that are not so healthy.”

The Plenary concluded with a closing Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney on 9 July with the finalisation of its decrees set for August 2022.

The intentions of Bergoglio in his Christmas address to the Curia, 2019

AM+DG

The Christmas address of (Pope) Francis on December 21 to the Roman Curia can be found at: http://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/speeches/2019/december/documents/papa-francesco_20191221_curia-romana.htm

In his address, the FP/PF quotes popes and saints but everything he says is twisted and taken out of context or he does so to advance a hidden agenda. His address is riddled with the word “change” (30 times) and references to “humanism”.

His true goals are humanistic: not just to “change” but to get rid of Faith in God altogether.

 A few of the FP/PF’s statements:

(Comments from Remnant Child of Mary and Remnant Survivor are in red)

“behind every form of rigidity lies some kind of imbalance…(If being rigid means to be faithful to Christ and his teachings- then yes, all Christians faithful to the 10 commandments and to Christ’s teachings are mentally unstable- according to FP. In actual fact, remaining true is the only form of sanity.)

“inevitability and necessity of change in the Church(Both are these assertations are lies. All that Christ asks is that we stay true. God and His teachings are not changeable or in need of change. Read these scriptures: Psalm 119:89
Your word, O LORD, is everlasting; it is firmly fixed in the heavens.

Isaiah 51:6
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth below; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its people will die like gnats. But My salvation will last forever, and My righteousness will never fail.)

“Brothers and sisters, Christendom no longer exists

(Not if he has his way!! Is that meant to make us feel that Christianity is no longer powerful or important? In actual fact Christendom refers to the worldwide Christian community. Of course, it still exists but he (the False Prophet) would like to make us believe that it does not!)

“… tradition does not preserve ashes; the nostalgia of fundamentalists (is) to return to the ashes.”

(In reality, all faithful Catholics hold onto “tradition.” In 2 Thessalonians 2: 14- 15 St Paul teaches us to stand firm:
14”To this He called you through our gospel, so that you may share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brothers, stand firm and cling to the traditions we taught you, whether by speech or by letter.” He equates tradition with fundamentalism and nostalgia- and speaks of it in a derogatory way. He actually is inferring that the fundamental or main teachings and traditions are now ‘ashes’! Well actually, any true Catholic is a “fundamentalist” because it means that we know the important teachings which underpin our Faith and remain faithful to them. We are not persuaded by strange or other doctrines. This is a badge of honour and a necessity- to not to be swayed from the Truth!)

“...change …would become something more human and more Christian Change would still take place, but beginning with man as its centre: an anthropological conversion.”

(The centre of our Faith is Christ. If man were at the centre, then we would have no Faith in Christ. In fact this would be “Humanism” and is related to all the “isms”: Communism, Relativism, Marxism…Our Faith and the Church’s teachings as handed down by Jesus Christ and the Apostles make up the fullness of Faith. There is nothing more Christian, nothing better and nothing that is more needed than for humans to faithfully respond to what Christ taught us. Man at the centre offends God and this sort of heresy or ‘conversion’ would lead people into believing that men are gods.)

 

“.. there is a need to be wary of the temptation to rigidity.

(How about:  to be wary of the temptation to heresy?)

“A rigidity born of the fear of change, which ends up erecting fences and obstacles on the terrain of the common good, (ie. Marxist)turning it into a minefield of incomprehension and hatred.”

(Change is not feared by any true Catholic or Christian. Change is constantly expected of us until we become saints and fully reflect the glory of God. The only obstacles we erect are those which are defences against those who wish to steal our souls. We do not bend towards sin and urge others to stand firm in the Faith as well. If that makes us rigid, so be it! There is a need to be wary of the temptation to heresy and sin, of a rigidity towards God, not anything else.)

The FP twists everything. He keeps repeating the same words – rigidity, traditionalists, fundamentalists, change …it is a type of brainwashing. If he says it often enough, people will be won over. After all, they won’t want to be seen as rigid, averse to change, or reluctant to embrace new ideas- or other creeds!

In the Book of Truth, Jesus warns us:

“…You will betray Me; deny Me and embrace My enemies, for you will be so caught up in the new religion – the secular humanism, which will come as a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing to devour you – that I will be forgotten. Your ambition and desire to please those enemies of Mine, who will rise to great heights, within the echelons of My Church will blind you to the Truth. This will be the cause of your demise and all those whom you will pull into grave error.

It is when My Church turns My Teachings upside down; inside out and back to front, that you will know that the time has come for the antichrist to take centre stage. Those who worship the beast will sign their own death warrant and will hand over their free will, a Sacred Gift from God, to My enemies. Once you swear an oath to this new false doctrine, you will be guilty of crucifying Me and your punishment will be severe. …” (30 June 2014 @ 11:50pm)

Luckily, we have this alternate form of communication i.e. the internet (“Secret Channel” – see message below) from faith-filled  journalists, priests and bloggers who help us to see the truth; … ‘alternate’ as in a different form of communication from the official mainstream media. It is a lack of information and blatantly evil propaganda through the mainstream media that has caused so many people all over the world to be deceived and brainwashed about what is happening.

Jesus warns the media and explains this to us in the Book of Truth:

  “…Media Censorship

To the media, I have this to say. As communicators to the world, the arrogance you display today will turn to despair when your word is no longer heard. You too will soon realize the importance of prayer when mankind turns from the Truth. Your word today can still represent the important independent truth. But this gift will now be taken away from you. Instead, the Truth will now be hidden from mankind through the dictatorship you are about to witness during the Great Tribulation. Then your word will be denied, just as My Word is.

The “Secret Channel” of Communication

No one will listen to you because the only word delivered to mankind, which will have any impact, will be by the Secret Channel delivered to the world through technology. You will find yourself in the wilderness and will end up trying to communicate to a disbelieving world, just as I do at this point in time, when your word is not heard….” (01 January 2011 @ 02:00am)

The papal Christmas address to the Roman Curia: A Creed of Postmodernism

The author states: This is a creed of postmodernism, and it looks like a formal declaration of war upon the orthodoxy and the Catholicity of the Faith.  …

“These attempts to destroy the very core of what it is to be a human person created in hope for salvation by Almighty God cannot possibly succeed, but the damage that is being done to the Faithful and the Faith by the proclamation of such nonsense from the highest step of the ecclesial authority is incalculable in extent.

Take note that this “the common good” is pure Marxist terminology, redolent of the “Common Purpose” lobby group, the UN, and of straightforward Freemasonry. It seeks to crush the individual in the name of some collective and indeed collectivist ideology of so-called “progress”. …

…it is a text proclaiming a deep ideological division between an “us” and a “them” — it is foully schismatic in purpose and in nature, which therefore constitutes a willful and deliberate declaration of a heresy as that is the very core definition of what Heresy is.
