    “This article was posted in the category of Catholic. Try your best to straighten out all the poor Catholics in the world. Don’t worry about me, I will remain a Catholic all my life! Pray for us Catholics. Like Jesus said, for the hard cases, it takes not only prayer but also fasting. Make a good fast for me! Thanks!”

    I would like to admit that the other day I realize now that I was a little facetious. I was in a hurry when I responded to you. Because like they say, one draws more flies with honey than a barrel of vinegar. On the other hand, to be open with you, perhaps what I took from your comments on the article that I posted, was what I encounter more and more today in all the churches, to set out to put someone straight without the willingness to listen or dialogue. This greatly irritates me especially in my Church, the Catholic Church, especially from priests or bishops, who want to impose without an example to follow, and even worse, to do so without making any reference to the beliefs, the doctrines, of the Catholic Church! I think you can understand this. If a Lutheran, imposes on another Lutheran in the same church, according to his “enlightened intelligence”, without making any reference to the set of beliefs or doctrines of the Lutheran church, this is really gross. None of us are God, but how easy it is to decide according to our own heads right and wrong as did our first parents (Gen 3:4-5)! Subjectivism, relativism, hurray for human pride, which drives people away!
    As was written in the article posted:
    “When I am tempted to criticize a priest who treats me badly because I am concerned about the great danger to souls in this period of time, among other examples, I like to recall the attitude of the Good Thief on the cross who, while recognizing his own sins, said to the other thief: “We indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but his man has done nothing wrong.” And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingly power” (Lk 23:40-42). When Saint Francis of Assisi saw a public sinner in Assisi, he said: “There goes Francis if it were not for the grace of God”! The Truth does not belong to those on the left of the spectrum nor on the right of the spectrum; the Truth does not belong to any human being; the Truth is Jesus (Jn 14:6). Every good thought or inspiration come from God (2Cor 3:5; Phil 2:13). We should defend the Truth, but with the proper attitude of who we are and Who God is!”
    In the United States there are at least 30,000 independent protestant groups with the same Bible, profession in the same Jesus Christ, but with a great number of contradictory interpretations of many passages in the Bible. Jesus, as God, knew this would happen, and thus Jesus offered the solution and the guidance who have the humility to seek it and accept it. Christ did not found His Church with 12 perfect angels from heaven, but 12 sinners, called the apostles.
    As is written in the article posted:
    “BEFORE 1930 ALL MAINLINE PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS WERE IN ACCORD WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH that the use of artificial birth control was a grave evil and a serious sin. When the Anglican Church changed its stance in 1930 (Lambeth Conference) the other protestants churches quickly followed suit while Pope Pius XI reaffirmed the Church’s constant teaching on this grave evil in his encyclical Casti Cannubii (1930). When the Anglican Church first approved the use of contraception in 1930 it was only for serious reasons and only for married people who have been generous for life. However, by providing an opening for contraception, the qualifying phrase “for serious reason” was quickly ignored. Subsequently the use of contraception was viewed as virtuous behavior, and even the silent holocaust of abortion has become a private ethical choice of birth control. The unborn, unwanted babies no longer have any legal protection; they are now ripped to pieces after they are brutally murdered. BABIES DO NOT CHOOSE TO DIE! Is this not a good example of the slippery slope? The former Hippocratic oath for health care workers read: “I will administer no abortafacient to a pregnant woman.” The original Hippocratic oath acknowledged that abortion was a form of doing violence not only to the child but to the woman as well.”
    But as I wrote to another blogger on FreeRepublic, 400 years ago those who did not like the Catholic Church protested and left. But now the protesters, who want a Christianity without the cross, have decided to throw out those who believe that the Ten Commandments come from God and therefore no Church, or no person, can change what comes from God. This is like spoiled arrogant children, who rebel against their parents, but do not leave the house that their parents bought, but throw out the parents. But since these children do not want to work, no one pays the bills and in the end we see what is happening to our country with these type of rebellious children now in power in the government – an incredible national debt. When Pope Paul VI issued his prophetic encyclical, “HUMANAE VITAE” (1968), reaffirming what Christians knew for centuries about separating the unitive act of love between a husband and a wife from the responsibility of giving life as God gave to each of us (“Be fruitful and multiply” (Gen 1:28)), there was an incredible negative reaction not only on the part of the laity in the Catholic Church who wanted to enjoy the pleasures of sexual relationships without any responsibility or openness to life by using artificial birth control, but even on the part of a great number of priests and bishops, even entire Episcopal conferences (e.g., the ‘Winnipeg Statement’ of the Canadian Bishops)!
    When each of us die, it is not God Who sends us to heaven or hell, it is each of us who choose heaven or hell. If a person persevered during this short life to take the risk of seeking the uncomfortable truth outside of his head, which leads to Christ (Jn 14:6) instead of inventing the truth according to his own head, to trust God instead of himself, he will want to continue seeking this truth after death and will want to be with God Who is the Truth (Jn 14:6). But if a person willing deceived himself, taking the easier way, with the help of the beautiful lies and temptations of “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44), when he dies, just as during this short life, he will not want to be with the Truth outside of his own head, and will choose the only other place that exists for eternity where there is not God. Each one of us has received different amounts of grace and truth from God (the parable of the talents – Mt 25:14-30); how we correspond to these gifts from God will determine our eternal destiny.
    Heaven and hell are the exact opposites. When a new person arrives to heaven everyone rejoices. When a new person arrives to hell, everyone has more hate and pain.
    Let us pray for each other to seek the truth, in a world more filled with confusion and lies than ever before, to seek the hidden pearl (Mt 13:44-46), even if it means to follow Christ all the way to Calvary and loose everything, even our good name before men, as Christ did on the cross, considered a great criminal worthy of crucifixion.

    I agree. But due to our sins and rejection and rebellion against God’s holy laws, especially Humanae Vitae and humility before the Eucharist, explained by the Catholic Church we deserve what is happening, as St. Francis fortold:
    “Prophecy of Saint Francis” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html):
    2. The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will withered to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error.
    7. Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer.”
    “When God wants to chastise humanity, He does not give to the Church the Pope of which it needs, but leaves to the Church the Pope that it merits” (Archbishop Fulton Sheen).

    JosephJames to Mrs. Don-o

    I agree. As the author wrote in the article: “I must admit that I am not a professional writer. I received my BA degree in mathematics and science from UCLA in 1974, not in English nor in History nor in other liberal arts (not that these disciplines are bad in themselves). I was ordained a priest in Italy on August 31, 1996. But at least in the 60’s and 70’s and 80’s there was much less influence of the secular humanists (who have undermined reason and logic) in the mathematics department; two plus two are still four! Virtue is still virtue, sin is still sin, heaven and hell still exist according to the Creator of the universe even though these culture destroyers have convinced us otherwise!”
    I am sure the author would not mind if someone would break it up in 5 pieces as you said. The only thing that matters is to help souls find the Truth Who is Jesus (Jn 14:6)!
    “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14)!
    This will be the greatest deception in the history of the world and the Church. We are truly the generation of which Christ spoke about in Matthew chapter 24. One has to pray much, especially before the infinite God in the Eucharist, but with the help of the Mother of God to adore God with true humility and trust. But also one must struggle to seek the Truth even amidst much confusion in the Catholic Church as never before.
    OUR LADY AT AKITA, JAPAN said (October 13, 1973: the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun on October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal; Also the same date (October 13 – 1884) of the diabolical vision of Pope Leo XIII which motivated him to compose “The Prayer To Saint Michael The Archangel” and to print it and send it to all the bishops of the world): “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees… churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise …”

    This article was posted in the category of Catholic. I do not think this is the place to try to explain all the differences. If one is truly seeking the truth before God, God will not deceive such a person, and with perseverance, this person will progress toward the Truth. After death, for all eternity, no one ends up in heaven by chance, and no one ends up in hell by chance.

    I agree with you. There are many references to other articles. I think in this period of time of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, people might go back to it to find information when they begin to realize that things are not going right but are having difficulty putting their finger on the sources of the problem or understanding that the Truth, Who is Jesus (Jn 14:6) does not change, even with beautiful words to convince us.
    No one reads the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults from cover to cover, but they go to the CCC as a reference when they want to know what the Catholic Church truly teaches. Maybe this article can be used in a similar way.

    This is a common misunderstanding. Catholics do not worship on the Sabbath, which according to Jewish law is the last day of the week (Saturday), when God rested from all the work he had done in creation (Gen. 2:2-3). Catholics worship on the Lord’s Day, the first day of the week (Sunday, the eighth day); the day when God said “Let there be light” (Gen. 1:3); the day when Christ rose from the dead; the day when the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles (Day of Pentecost). The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “The Church celebrates the day of Christ’s Resurrection on the ‘eighth day,’ Sunday, which is rightly called the Lord’s Day” (CCC 2191).

    The early Church did not move the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Instead “The Sabbath, which represented the completion of the first creation, has been replaced by Sunday, which recalls the new creation inaugurated by the Resurrection of Christ” (CCC 2190). Sunday is the day Catholics are bound to keep, not Saturday.

    JosephJames to Chode

    What you say is the real sad part. Even sadder is the fact that very few are awake to the hidden poison of throwing out or rather changing the Ten Commandments the way they like. The Ten Commandments are explained very well by the Church and summarized very well in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults. Few Catholics want this book because they want to interpret the Bible the way they want Christianity without the cross, and still convince themselves that “I’m OK”!
    God does not send people to hell. People who invented the “truth” (small “t”) all their lives, when they die and when they see the Truth (big “T”) Who is God, they choose the only other place that exists for all eternity, where there is not God. That place is called Hell!

    What you say usually happened in the past. But now “those who do not walk with God” decided not to walk away and to take over the Church. This is like the spoiled arrogant children throwing out the parents who tell the children what is best for the children (the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults) and the children not only say no, but they throw out the CCC, and anyone else in the “old time religion” which still holds to the Ten Commandments!

    Just as Christ was crucified and buried 2000 years ago, so too His Body, the Church, will be crucified and buried in this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21). Only after this, when it seems that the Church is totally dead and buried, when Satan and his very numerous followers seem to have total victory, then the “Woman clothed with the sun” (Rev 12:1) will crush the head of the “great red dragon” (Rev 12:3), the ancient serpent (Gen 3:15), and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph (Fatima, 1917) and there will be the Resurrection of Jesus with His Body, the purified Church!

    JosephJames to Dr. Sivana

    I agree.
    But the problem is the effects on the Church, the Catholics and the world at large.
    “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14).
    “Then one considers the greater part of the Catholics are convinced that what the Pope says is infallible, the game is done. Even if one protests that a letter to Scalfari or an interview to whoever, might be less than the opinion of a private doctor, in the era of media technology, the effect that will be produced will be much greater than any solemn pronouncement. In fact, the more the gesture or the talk is formally small and insignificant, the more it will have an effect and will be considered as unassailable and beyond criticism.” (“Letter to fellow Priests”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/12/letter-to-fellow-priests.html).

    I agree about the writing style. This priest wrote in one of his blogs:
    “I must admit that I am not a professional writer. I received my BA degree in mathematics and science from UCLA in 1974, not in English nor in History nor in other liberal arts (not that these disciplines are bad in themselves).

Virtue is still virtue, sin is still sin, heaven and hell still exist according to the Creator of the universe even though these culture destroyers have convinced us otherwise! As Archbishop Fulton Sheen used to say: “The truth is the truth even if no one believes it; error is error even if everyone believes it.” I even remember in 1969 my fallen away Catholic high school teacher of science posed the philosophical question to us students: If a tree falls in a forest where there is no one to hear or see it, did the tree fall?”

    Regarding “the whole Jews-Mason thing”, besides incouraging to read the original document and not just the titles, I wrote to Zionist Conspirator:
    “I see your identity as “Zionist Conspirator (The “end of history” will be worldwide Judaic Theocracy.)”.

    “The Dissipation of the Darkness, the Origin of Masonry”, by G.S. Lawrence, tells us that the original name of the ancient Masonry was “The Mysterious Force”.

    After the death of King Agrippa, Hiram was designated as president of the Central Temple of Jerusalem and President General of the Association, “The Mysterious Force,” in a legal election realized by the eight founders, achieving the unanimous vote of the seven.

    “I bind myself to work for an increase in the number of its members. I bind myself to attack whoever follows the teachings of the impostor Jesus and to combat his men until death.

    JosephJames to SpirituTuo

    Dear SpirituTuo,

    If you have the patience, may I respond to your note. My words might seem a bit strong, but for me we are dealing with arriving to heaven or hell for all eternity. Lucia told us Our Lady of Fatima was always sad, and even showed the three children the horrors of hell, which few priest today have the courage to be politically incorrect and talk about the consequences of mortal sin.

    You wrote: “It appears as though the priest was spoken to many times about his homilies and chose not to make adjustments.”
    Make adjustments according to what criteria? Did Christ make adjustments according to the religious leaders of his time? Why was Christ crucified, because he got along with the establishment? Why were most of the prophets of the Old Testament killed? Would you write to the prophets of the Old Testament “to make adjustments”? Again, according to what criteria?

    You wrote: “Additionally, he should have met the Auxiliary Bishop. To refuse the meeting was bad form.”
    You wrote: “Read it.” Where did you find in the article that this priest refused to meet with the Auxiliary Bishop? This priest was called in to meet with the Auxiliary Bishop on October 13, 2015, and he went. He also obeyed the decision of the two bishops, even though this priest was not consulted before the decision.

    This priest wrote about a recent annual retreat for the priests of his diocese in which the priest who gave the meditations never mentioned Our Lady, and during the retreat there was no Eucharistic adoration but rather adoration of the cross, without the corpse of Christ on the cross, as is common in the protestant churches, with the cross placed in front of the altar with a spot light on it, and the tabernacle behind in darkness. (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/02/children-of-woman.html).

    You wrote: “Finally, the devil has been with us since the beginning. He will be with us until the second coming.”
    Again the same question: How do we distinguish the nice words of an “angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), from the uncomfortable Truth of Christ transmitted through His Catholic Church?

    Do you really understand the gravity of the situation in the Church today? What was Saint Paul trying to warn us about when he wrote that before the second coming of Jesus Christ “that day will not come, unless THE REBELLION (APOSTASY) COMES FIRST, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2Thess 2:3-4). What was Saint Paul talking about when he wrote: “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2Thess 2:11-12).

    I get the impression that you would write, “you sound to me a bit manic”, to:

    I get the impression that you would write, “you sound to me a bit manic”, to:
    the five cardinals who wrote the book, “Remaining in the Truth of Christ”, in defense of marriage, because after all, this book was not allowed into the Synod of Bishops in October 2014?!? Why did Our Lady of Good Success warn us (January 20, 1610), that when the Sacrament of Matrimony will be attacked and deeply profaned in our century, “in this supreme moment of need for the Church, the ONE who should speak will fall silent!”?!? Why did Our Lady send Saint Michael the Archangel to Garabandal (Spain, 1965) to tell us: “Many Cardinal, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls”!

    I get the impression that you would write, “you sound to me a bit manic”, to:
    Pope Paul VI, because after he issued his prophetic encyclical, “HUMANAE VITAE” (1968), there was an incredible negative reaction not only on the part of the laity who wanted to enjoy the pleasures of sexual relationships without any responsibility or openness to life by using artificial birth control, but even on the part of a great number of priests and bishops, even entire Episcopal conferences (e.g., the ‘Winnipeg Statement’ of the Canadian Bishops)! BEFORE 1930 ALL MAINLINE PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS WERE IN ACCORD WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH that the use of artificial birth control was a grave evil and a serious sin. When the Anglican Church changed its stance in 1930 (Lambeth Conference) the other protestants churches quickly followed suit while Pope Pius XI reaffirmed the Church’s constant teaching on this grave evil in his encyclical Casti Cannubii (1930). When the Anglican Church first approved the use of contraception in 1930 it was only for serious reasons and only for married people who have been generous for life. However, by providing an opening for contraception, the qualifying phrase “for serious reason” was quickly ignored. Subsequently the use of contraception was viewed as virtuous behavior, and even the silent holocaust of abortion has become a private ethical choice of birth control. The unborn, unwanted babies no longer have any legal protection; they are now ripped to pieces after they are brutally murdered. BABIES DO NOT CHOOSE TO DIE! Is this not a good example of the slippery slop? The former Hippocratic oath for health care workers read: “I will administer no abortafacient to a pregnant woman.” The original Hippocratic oath acknowledged that abortion was a form of doing violence not only to the child but to the woman as well.

    I get the impression that you would write, “you sound to me a bit manic”, to:
    Pope Paul VI after he pronounced the dramatic words on June 29, 1972, after the Second Vatican Council, denouncing that “By some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered into the temple of God… One no longer trusts the Church; so many trust in the first profane prophet, who speaks to us in a magazine or in some social slogans, in order to run after him and ask him if he has the formula of true life. And we do not realize instead that we have already become lords and teachers. Doubt has entered our consciences, and it has entered through the windows which were meant to have been opened to the light. This state of uncertainty reigns even in the Church. It was hoped that after the Council there would be a day of sunlight in the history of the Church. Instead, there came a day of clouds, of darkness, of groping, of uncertainty…”
    (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/paul_vi/homilies/1972/documents/hf_p-vi_hom_19720629_it.html).
    A few months before Pope Paul VI died, on September 8, 1977, he confirmed this grave judgment in a conversation with Jean Guitton. Here are the words of Paul VI recounted by the French philosopher:
    “There is a great disturbance at this moment in the world and in the Church, and what is in question is the faith. It happens now that I find myself repeating the obscure saying of Jesus in the Gospel of Saint Luke: ‘When the Son of man returns, will he find faith on the earth?’ It happens that books are published in which important points of the faith are undermined, that the bishops are silent, that these books are not found to be strange. This, according to me, is strange. I read again every once in a while the Gospel of the end times and I realize that in this moment there is emerging some signs of the end times. Are we near the end? This we will never know. It is necessary to always be ready, but everything can still last quite a while. What strikes me, when I consider the Catholic world, is that a non-Catholic type of thought seems to predominate sometimes within Catholicism, and this non-Catholic thought might become the stronger one within Catholicism in the future. But it will never represent the thought of the Church. A small flock must remain, however small it may be.”
    (http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/23572?).

    Perhaps even Our Lady of Akita, Japan “sounds a bit manic”!
    Our Lady of Akita, Japan (1973), told us: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead... The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see CARDINALS OPPOSING CARDINALS, bishops against other bishops... the Church will be full of those who accept compromise …” (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).

    Christ offered mercy but without compromising the Truth, as do many prelates today, in the name of “mercy”! Thus would Christ be considered “a bit manic”? Saint Thomas Aquinas wrote: “Rarely affirm, seldom deny, always distinguish.” Have we allowed ourselves to slide into the culture of relativism which does not distinguish right from wrong according to the norms of God?
    Have we arrived to the point of: “Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God” (Jn 16:2; Is 66:5). “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20). What was Our Lady of Good Success, 400 years ago, warning us about regarding the destruction of the Sacrament of Matrimony? Compromise after compromise. If someone is not “politically correct” is this person “a bit manic”?
    Again I ask, what is the criteria of what leads to heaven and what leads to hell? The opinion or consensus of the majority?
    Very few Catholics today, immersed into relativism, realize that to change, even an “iota” of the saving laws of God (Mt 5:18; Lk 16:17; Mk 13:31), will bring very great destruction to eternal souls. Wars were fought in the first centuries of the Church due to disputes over the doctrine of the Church; now very few Catholics even care. If we are not alert with much prayer and study, the same old tricks of our adversary, with different dressings, will be used to lead us astray and away from God Who is the Truth and the way to eternal life. This is why we cannot rest until death, because our very intelligent enemy does not rest even at night; our enemy works in the dark!
    Was Ratzinger’s forgotten prophesy on the future of the Church unfounded and perhaps Cardinal Ratzinger is “a bit manic”? (http://www.lastampa.it/2013/02/18/vaticaninsider/eng/the-vatican/ratzingers-forgotten-prophesy-on-the-future-of-the-church-h7DcrYFxNmAleoeDLkekzN/pagina.html).
    You can hear Cardinal Ratzinger express the same idea in an exclusive interview with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger on the World Over Live (EWTN, 2003; “Conversations The World Over - Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger Pt. 1”; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TO6mzCPWbg), Raymond Arroyo asked Cardinal Ratzinger what did Pope John Paul II mean by “a new springtime in the Church”. Cardinal Ratzinger replied:
    “This does not mean that there will be great masses of conversions; this is not the way of God. Essential things in history begin always with small but convinced communities. The Church began with the 12 apostles. And even the churches of Saint Paul diffused in the Mediterranean with little communities, but these communities had in themselves the future of the world, because they had the truth; and the force of true conviction. I think also today it would be an error to think that now in 10 years in a new springtime all people will be catholic. This is not our future or our expectation. But we will have really convinced communities. This is the springtime, a new life in very convinced persons with the joy of the faith. But from these small numbers we will have a radiation of joy, an attraction.”
    Did Cardinal Biffi at the Annual Lenten Retreat for the Pope n (Feb. 27, 2007), exaggerate when he said that the masses will follow the antichrist with the false prophet, with the exception of small groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants who will resist and will say to the Antichrist: ‘You give us everything, except what interests us, Jesus Christ’.” For Cardinal Biffi, this narrative is a warning: “Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with his cross and resurrection.” (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2007/mar/07030101.html).

    Dear SpirituTuo, pray for me so that I may follow our unpopular and politically incorrect Savior, Jesus Christ.
    I will pray for you.

    What Wyrd bið ful aræd wrote and my reply to him, I would like to offer also to you. As Wyrd bið ful aræd wrote: “The difference is that non-practicing Christians don’t tend to cling to a Christian identity, and do tend to be dispersed in society. The Jews have nation that is build on their identity, along with the collective experience of being a distinct, unique religio-ethnic group dating back to deep antiquity.”
    I replied to him: “I agree, and this plays into what both Father E. Sylvester Berry and Monsignor Dillon wrote. It seems that we look only at the titles of the books and we conclude without reading what they wrote.”
    As I wrote before, I truly believe that Catholic bishops have received much grace from God, but are free to use that grace against God and thus can do much more damage. Does this mean that I hate bishops?
    Christ, as true Christians, love the sinner but hate the sin. Homosexual activists do not make this distinction and thus accuse true Christians of hating those with the homosexual tendency. Christians hate sin, in this case the homosexual act. We all have temptations. If we pray, with God’s help, we can overcome temptation. “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Mt 19:26). How many today that their sin is impossible to overcome and condemn those who seek to overcome sin, sin according to the 10 Commandments.
    The last several Popes have said that the greatest sin today is that there is no sin, we have lost the sense of sin, and we are angry with anyone who indicates that sin still exists and who who want to help their children to overcome sin too in a decent society.

    As you pointed out, so many people are non-practicing. How many baptized Christians and Catholics really practice their faith? How many Christians say the Our Father, “Thy will be done”, but live “my will be done”. The more one has received from God the more he can do good or evil according to how he uses what he has received. The Jews have received much; Chrisians even more. There are good Jews and bad Jews; there are good Christians and bad Christians.
    Just as a General in a war has more power and responsibility, so too in the spiritual battle. A bishop is like a General in this spiritual battle. But many bishops today have followed the way of Judas Iscariot.
    I love the Jews, as I love everyone, but I do not close my eyes that they have received much from God. I also do not close my eyes to documents that indicate which groups have the most control of this world. Just because the few very rich Jews do what they do, we should not lump all Jews together in the same group or category.
    There are many many Jews who have become Christian in the last several decades but in a silent way that you do not find in the mass media.

    I agree. But just as Christ went through His passion, crucifixion and burial, before the resurrection, so too, His Body, His Bride, the Church. The few who remain faithful to the Truth that does not change with the world will even cry out with Christ in this period: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me!”
    Yes afterwards will be the resurrection, but how many will flee from the passion and even deny Christ, Who is the Truth, in this period?!?

    God revealed to Saint Francis of Assisi these prophecies:
    2. “The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will wither to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the MORTAL POISON of his error.”
    7. “Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer.”

    Did you go to the Web site of this reference? How normal it is for each of us to judge or categorize the few words that we see without taking the time to read the reference article which also has many references.
    If we are honest, I think we will agree that we are more influenced by the highly controlled mass media than we realize or even want to admit. Those who control the mass media certainly put themselves before the public in a good, and even deceptive light.
    Those who do not submit to the authority that Christ left us, here on earth, automatically slide into subjectivism. I find that I have to struggle everyday to continue to seek the truth and reality outside of my head, from the Creator, despite the fact that “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44) is working overtime in these our days. This also means that if I come across new information tomorrow, I hope with the help of sincere prayer, that I will not shut my eyes just because the new information is not how I want the truth and reality.

    I am totally in agreement with you. I am sure that St. Francis de Sales is also totally in agreement with you, each according to his or her vocation (http://www.catholicspiritualdirection.org/devoutlife.pdf).

    I wrote in one of my articles:
    “I think we are aware that we are living in extraordinary times. It is very important to pray very much especially the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. If you are not able to spend an hour everyday before our Eucharistic Lord in church, I would highly encourage you to adore our Eucharistic Lord often in the nearest church from where you are, as did often Saint Paschal Baylon, Patron of Eucharistic congresses and Eucharistic associations. You might do as the angel at Fatima instructed the three children prostrate before the Eucharist and say: I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee (and I thank Thee); I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee (and do not thank Thee). I would also highly recommend to you, if you have not already done so, to consecrate yourself, and your family if possible, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I made this consecration on August 15, 1976 after reading the “TRUE DEVOTION TO MARY”, by Saint Louis De Montfort, which you can find on my main website: http://josephdwight.blogspot.com . Looking back on these last 39 years since this consecration, I am truly amazed at how Our Lady has led me on a divine marvellous adventure that has been permeated by joy as well as many trials and difficulties.”
    (“Letter to fellow Priests”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/12/letter-to-fellow-priests.html).

    But also as you mentioned about the different vocations, the ones who should pray and have the time and the vocation, very often do not put the first priority on prayer!
    I wrote in another article:
    “More than 14 years ago I welcomed the invitation of the Servant of God, ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN, for priests and bishops, to make everyday a holy hour in church before the infinite God in the tabernacle. In the past few years I had encouraged other priests in my diocese to do the same, but they all said: “I do not have time”. I replied to them that if I did not make a holy hour everyday, I would end up giving to others a poor priest named Father Joe instead of Jesus Christ. We forget so easily the words we say every year at the beginning of Lent: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

    I am totally in agreement with you. Almost 15 years ago I took the advice of Archbishop Fulton Sheen to make a holy hour everyday. I cannot tell you how much this has helped me!
    Sheen also said that the holy hour was the only thing he discovered to overcome the “Noon Day Devil”, that is the lose of enthusiasm to love God and neighbor. Few people realize how much Jesus loves them, and thus they do not realize how much Jesus suffers (now! as Padre Pio and the saints tell us) for our indifference. The more one loves, the greater the pain due to indifference! Padre Pio also said that the prayer most gratifying to Jesus after the Holy Mass is the Way of the Cross, which helps us understand how much Jesus suffered for our indifference as well as to maybe understand the gravity of our sins.

    Father Joseph Dwight when asked by another priest who never makes any reference to the documents of the Church nor to the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults: “And so what did these five cardinals write?” (referring to the book, “REMAINING In The Truth Of Christ”): “Simply put, they wrote that you cannot change the Truth; you cannot change the Doctrine of the Church; you cannot change the Catechism of the Catholic Church!” The Truth is Jesus Who is God (Jn14:6) and thus immutable and absolute!
    We have been pushed and shoved into relativism far more than we realize by the mass media, schools, etc. The Truth, Who is Jesus, cannot change as so many priests and bishops want to do today to please the people rather than Jesus who died on the cross for our sins. Today people want a Christianity without the cross; but this does not lead to heaven!

    Saint Francis indicates that there will be a false pope not canonically elected. Today there are many Freemasons in the Vatican. A group of bishops cannot change the Ten Commandments, because the Ten Commandments come from God!
    God revealed to Saint Francis of Assisi:
    2. “The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will wither to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, A PERSONAGE NOT CANONICALLY ELECTED, RAISED TO THE PONTIFICATE, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many THE MORTAL POISON OF HIS ERROR.”
    7. “Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WILL SEND THEM NOT A WORTHY PASTOR, BUT A DESTROYER.”

    Read just the first one fourth, down to this paragraph:
    “I asked a couple of priests in my diocese recently WHAT WOULD THEY DO IF POPE FRANCIS APPROVES EVERYTHING THAT CARDINAL KASPER SAYS IN OCTOBER AT THE SYNOD ON THE FAMILY? In the last two years, under the reign of Pope Francis, many bishops, cardinals and priests, who want to change the 10 Commandments to please the people, to offer a Christianity without the cross, have been promoted by Pope Francis, and those bishops who say that you cannot change the 10 Commandments and must take up your cross with Christ, WERE MARGINALIZED BY POPE FRANCIS! IF IT WILL BE APPROVED BY SILENCE ON THE PART OF “THE ONE WHO SHOULD SPEAK” (and thus officially approved), that is by the pope, in October of this year (2015) at the Synod on the Family, what Cardinal Kasper promotes, that is, to be able to have sex outside of marriage without any obligation to do or live what we as Catholics say in the “Act of Contrition”: “I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more, and to avoid the near occasion of sin” (sin according to God explained by His Church, the Magisterium of the Church, not according to the disguised egoism of relativism of each person or of the world!), THEN WE HAVE ARRIVED TO THE GREAT PROPHECIES OF THE BIBLE AS WELL AS THE PROPHECIES OF OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS, OF SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI, OF SAINT HILDEGARD (Doctor of the Church) AND OF MANY OTHERS! After Satan deals a mighty blow to the soul of the world, the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, the world will deteriorate more quickly and go rapidly toward the infernal abyss. I find it interesting that Our Lady of Good Success said these words in South America, and also that one of the most revealing prophecies about the false pope was given to Saint FRANCIS of Assisi, a saint very popular throughout the world.

    Did you understand at least a little bit what this article was trying to convey? The article begins with the phrase: “THE FUNDAMENTAL BATTLE OF ALL TIMES is who establishes the truth, God or the world, God or Satan, God or each person?” It seems that you have added even a forth category: “God or Webster”! It seems that you have allowed yourself to be brainwashed by the motors of the culture, the mass media, the schools, and almost all the religious institutions, which have been taken over by those who do not pray or believe in God especially in the last 50 years. Do you believe that Webster can offer you eternal life after death, or have you even swallowed the lie that hell and the devil do not exist, or even that there is nothing after death? Whether you believe it or not, or whether you want it or not, God decides the rules of the game. If you want to believe according to your head and have freely allowed yourself to believe the “father of lies” and to be formed by our relativistic society, you will still be judged according to the Truth established by God. God does not force anyone to accept and live by His eternal Truth. God does not force anyone to be with the immutable Truth for all eternity in His eternal kingdom. The problem is, whether we believe or want it or not, there are only two places for all eternity. In heaven there is the presence of the eternal Truth, God, and this presences is an incredible joy to those who freely subited, out of love, to its easy yoke and light burden (Mt 11:30). True love makes the yoke easy and the burden light, just as engaged couples do not feel the difficulties. For those who followed the father of lies who offers us continually pleasure now and convinces us that there are no consequences tomorrow or after death, God out of love will confirm our choice for all eternity and we will be separated from the eternal Truth, God, for all eternity, and this final and definitive separation is far more painful than all other fires and pains combined (CCC 1035). Whether we realize it or not, the good and the bad are surrounded by God’s love here on earth. At death, out of love, God respects our choice for all eternity! Even if we choose to live as spoiled children all our lives or as animals without responsibility, we will be judged according to our dignity as human beings made in the image and likeness of God (Gen 1:26-27).

    Thousands of seminarians and priests left the seminary and the priesthood after VCII, not to mention the millions of lay people who interpreted VCII in their own way, in “THE SPIRIT OF VATICAN II”! A great number of so-called “Catholics” did not want to discover or understand the documents of VCII as these documents were written and thus ended up as so many religious leaders who use their natural charismas and gifts from God not to lead people to Jesus Who is substantially present in the Most Holy Eucharist, so as to facilitate much easier a loving, true, humble relationship with Jesus! “The Most Reverend Bishop Athanasius Schneider - “Vatican II Must be Clarified”.” (http://arsorandi.blogspot.it/2013/07/the-most-reverend-bishop-athanasius.html; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8iBeaGeuxw).

    IT IS DIFFICULT TO SEEK THE TRUTH. People today have not been trained to go through the fatigue of thinking logically, to making the fine, but important distinctions as St. Thomas Aquinas tells us: “Rarely affirm, seldom deny, ALWAYS DISTINGUISH.” Thus many were not able to understand the deceptions of many who interpreted the documents of the Second Vatican Council erroneously in the so-called “spirit of Vatican II”!

    POPE BENEDICT BEGAN THE REFORM OF THE REFORM OF THE SACRED LITURGY after many so called experts of the Liturgy immediately after the Second Vatican Council shrewdly shifted the focus of the Liturgy to man instead of God. The First Commandment of God is: “You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve” (CCC 2084; Ex 20:2-5; Deut 5:6-9). The Vatican’s chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, in an interview of 2001, said: “The Second Vatican Council asked that some texts be revised. Disobeying this command, they set about re-writing them completely with no thought for the danger of making things worse instead of better. So many rites came off badly from this mania to throw out the old and start from scratch, as if the Church to date had always conned us and as if only now the time had at last come of the great geniuses, the super theologians, the super-biblists and the super-liturgists who know what the right thing is for the Church. This is a lie: the last Council simply asked that the texts be revised, not destroyed.” (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).

    TO FIGHT IN A BATTLE, IS IT NOT PRUDENT AND NECESSARY TO KNOW NOT ONLY YOUR OWN WEAPONS, TACTICS AND STRATEGY BUT ALSO THE WEAPONS, TACTICS AND STRATEGY OF THE ENEMY? It was recounted to Pope John Paul II that the Vatican’s chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, “knows too many bishops who do not believe in the Devil”. The Pope replied bluntly: “ANYONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”. When asked “What do you see as Satan’s greatest success?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons. … And they no longer believe in the Devil. We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. This is a shameful shortfall.”; (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).

    I trust Holy Mother Church and the documents of the Church.
    MANY BELIEVE THE FREEMASONS ARE SIMPLY A CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more that any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.

    MANY BELIEVE THE FREEMASONS ARE SIMPLY A CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more that any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.

    THOSE WHO HAVE SLID AWAY FROM TRUST IN THEIR CREATOR, and for Catholics trust in Holy Mother Church, automatically fall prey to the nice sounding lies of Satan who is doing all he can to lead us to his eternal dwelling.

    “We wish it to be your rule first of all the TEAR AWAY THE MASK FROM FREEMASONRY, and to let it be seen as it really is,” … “…let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the Masonic sect, if he values his Catholic name and his eternal salvation” (Pope Leo XIII, Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884).

    “I believe this SECRET ATHEISTIC ORGANIZATION to nothing less than the supreme conflict between the Church and Satan’s followers.” – Msgr. George F. Dillon, Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked, 1885.

    “MASONRY OUGHT FOREVER TO BE ABOLISHED. It is wrong – essentially wrong – a seed of evil, which can never produce any good.! – President John Quincy Adams, Letters on the Masonic Institution, T.R. Maruin Press, Boston, 1847.

    CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH; DECLARATION ON MASONIC ASSOCIATIONS:
    “Therefore the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.” (November 26, 1983; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19831126_declaration-masonic_en.html).

    I do not know. But I thought it best to be complete. Perhaps later we will understand! God knows. But I do think it is important to continue to struggle to seek the truth each day, until our last breath here on earth!

    I would be appreciative if you could offer me some web sites regarding your statement “Gloria Polo’s claims are private revelations that have not received positive approbation from the Magisterium.”
    Also if you could indicate a few web sites which might explain the proper interpretation of the decree of the “Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith”, published in the “Official Acts of the Holy See” (A.A.S.) 58/16, dated December 29, 1966 (”The Canons of the Catholic Church About Private Revelation”).

    Thank you
